This technique allows the user to summon snakes, usually from under the sleeve, but from other parts of their body as well, as seen when Orochimaru summoned a snake from his mouth. The snakes allow the user to attack from a fair distance, and can be used to restrict the target, or bite them with their venomous fangs. The snakes can also open their mouths to extend Kusanagi-like blades.
