Users

The Eight Gates Released Formation is a state where the user has opened all of the Eight Gates.

Overview

To open all Eight Gates, the user must puncture themselves just above the heart. Opening the eighth gate (and all seven preceding it) will cause the user's blood to emanate a flaming aura of red steam from all pores of their body, hair, and eyebrows.

Entering this state uses up all of the body's energy while making the heart pump at maximum power, temporarily gaining powers a hundred times greater than their normal self, far beyond that of the five Kage. This is seen when Might Guy opens all eight gates and fights on par with, and gradually overwhelms Madara Uchiha — the Ten-Tails' jinchūriki at the time — causing Madara to compare his fight with Guy to his fight with Hashirama Senju at the Valley of the End.[2]

Drawback

As with opening any of the other seven gates, opening the eighth will damage the user's body. Unlike the preceding seven, however, releasing all Eight Gates will lead the user to inevitably die because of the damage done to their body. Guy's bones started cracking from simply using Evening Elephant once.

Under regular circumstances, the effects of opening the eighth gate will cause the user to crumble to ash, having virtually cooked themselves from the inside-out.
