The user forms two large lion-shaped shrouds of chakra around their hands, then attacks the opponent with them. Though its full power was not shown in the manga, in the anime, it was shown that this technique has enough power to destroy Pain's chakra rods, as well as momentarily stunning the target after the attack lands.
- Interestingly, the lions make the technique closely resemble Dogs-Lions Japanese Guard. This is probably a reference to the use of the technique in the fight against Pain to defend Naruto, as well as dogs/lions rush away the evil souls of Japanese temples.
- In Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2, to execute the Gentle Step Twin Lion Fists, Hinata hits her opponent multiple times with her palms, pushing them back. Then she forms the lion heads and slams them into her opponent, where they explode and send the opponent flying back.
- In Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3, Hinata can launch the fists as a ranged attack while in her "awakened" form.
- In Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Impact, Hinata can either launch the fists as her primary ranged attack, or slam them in the upward direction, when in close range.
