Explosion Release (爆遁, Bakuton, Viz: Explosive Style) is a combined nature transformation kekkei genkai suggested to be made up of techniques that mix earth[1] and lightning-based chakra[Notes 1] to give the wielder the ability to utilise explosive chakra in combat. The only known users of this nature were members of Iwagakure's Explosion Corps.


  • Deidara uses Explosion Release in his Explosive Clay. He infuses his clay with explosive chakra, creating bombs of varying size and forms.[2][3]
  • Gari uses Explosion Release in conjunction with Taijutsu, allowing him to deliver punches that causes everything they hit to explode from the inside.[4] In the anime, he can also use it on the ground to create a shockwave of upturned earth and debris to throw the enemy off balance.[5] He also uses a less-destructive version of this technique, creating a puff of smoke instead of an explosion.[6]

References and Notes

  1. Since Earth Release is stated to be a component of Lava Release (along with Fire), Magnet Release (along with Wind), and Wood Release (along with Water), Lightning Release is the only element available for a combination with Earth Release.
