A technique similar in principle to the Wood Release: Wood Dragon Technique, where the user creates several gigantic wooden dragon using the bark of the God Tree as a medium. These can then be used for a multitude of purposes including restraining a target, or for offensive purposes.
Additionally, because these creations are connected directly to the God Tree, once the target comes into contact with the dragons, their chakra begins to drain away.
The name of this technique comes from the Japanese legend of Kibitsuhiko-no-mikoto, a prince who, with the help of his three retainers, defeated a demon. One of his retainers was named "Takeru Inukai" (犬飼健, Inukai Takeru). The tale of Momotarō, which is the source of Momoshiki's name, is based on this legend. Here, Momotarō befriends a dog, a monkey and a pheasant instead and it is said that the dog is based on Takeru Inukai.
- As with most Wood Release techniques, the dragons created by each user is dependent on their own imagination. The dragons created by Obito all had snout-like noses while Momoshiki's creations were less detailed.
