Generic Sealing Technique
|Anime||Naruto Episode #43|
|Appears in||Anime, Manga, Game and Movie|
|Classification||Ninjutsu, Fūinjutsu, General skill, Fighting Style|
This technique is a standard ninja skill which allows a ninja to summon an assortment of items or weapons that have been stored using fūinjutsu. Scrolls are the most common choice for item storage. When needed, the owner will activate the seals releasing their item or weapon of choice. Scrolls can also be used as ammunition for other weapons. The items themselves are unaffected by time.
Puppets can have these hidden inside various compartments as a means of increasing their own killing potential as well as hiding useful weapons from the opponent's sight. Interestingly, objects with seals on them can be sealed in other seals, which expands the number of potential tricks a shinobi can use.
Even ninjutsu can be stored in scrolls, to be released when the scroll is opened. This is seen in the anime with Shikamaru summoning a large amount of water, and Tenten summoning a fireball. The Water Prison Technique can be stored in a scroll to be used as a trap, immobilizing anyone that tries to read the scroll's contents.
