This ninjutsu forces the user to fall asleep. However, if the user suffer a strong direct blow, he consecutively will be awaked. Gaara has only used this technique when trying to unleash Shukaku from within him.


  • This technique also translates to something akin to "Tanuki Sleep Technique", which is significant as Shukaku is a tanuki.
  • In Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm, Naruto uses a similar technique while in a pyjamas costume, he falls asleep while his health bar is recovering.
