Five Elements Unseal

Users

This technique produces a powerful seal that is used to block or disturb the flow of chakra in a target. Once the seal is completed, the target will become unconscious and unable to fight for a short time. Orochimaru performed this technique to tamper with Naruto Uzumaki's seal. The original seal allowed a small amount of the Nine-Tails' chakra to always mix into Naruto's, but the additional seal disturbs this, preventing Naruto from using the Nine-Tails' chakra or even controlling his own chakra properly. This is because an odd-numbered seal creates an imbalance when placed on top of an even-numbered seal. Later, Jiraya uses this technique to remove the odd-numbered seal, thus allowing even more of the Nine-Tails chakra to mix with Naruto's. When Orochimaru later notices that the seal has been removed, he remarks that there are very few ninja capable of doing so, like Jiraiya.

Trivia

  • The "Five Elements" referred to in the name of this technique are the Chinese Five Elements, the Five Movements (五行, Japanese: Gogyō, Chinese: Wǔxíng):
  • Metal (金, Chinese: jīn),
  • Wood (木, Chinese:),
  • Water (水, Chinese: shuǐ),
  • Fire (火, Chinese: huǒ),
  • and Earth (土, Chinese:),

instead of the five chakra elements used in most other techniques, the Five Greats" (五大, Godai):

  • Earth (土, tsuchi),
  • Water (水, mizu),
  • Fire (火, hi),
  • Wind (風, kaze),
  • and Lightning (雷, kaminari).

This suggests the elements are merely symbolic.
