This technique allows the user to eject snakes from their wrist or sleeve, usually after a punching motion. The snakes are used primarily to attack from a distance and, being snakes, can inflict multiple poisonous wounds on the victim's body or hold them in place. The snakes can also open their mouths to extend Kusanagi-like blades.
This technique can also be classified as a variation of the Summoning Technique. This technique can also produce snakes from different parts of the user's body, as seen when Orochimaru summoned a snake from his mouth to attack the Third Hokage during their battle.
