Amaterasu: Flame Wrapping Fire


Blaze Release: Kagutsuchi is a technique which applies shape transformation to the black flames of Amaterasu, allowing the user to manipulate them at will. In Sasuke's case, while Amaterasu is cast from his left eye, he uses his right eye to manipulate the flames.[2] He invented the technique when he fought A.[1]


The user can shape the flames in different varieties, for both offence and defence.

  • While using the ribcage state of Susanoo, the user can create a defensive encampment by manipulating the flames to cover it.[3]
  • Converging the flames in front of the user, a barrier of spike-shaped flames can be created that not only shields him, but also pierces and burns any opponent that touches it.[4][5]
  • The user can wield the flames in their hand without being incinerated,[6] as well as manipulate them into a flexible sword which launches spike-shaped projectiles when swung.[7]
  • The black flames can be used simultaneously with the Chidori to enhance the latter's destructive power.[8]


Similar to other Mangekyō Sharingan abilities, Kagutsuchi's name is derived from Japanese myth and religion. Kagutsuchi is the God of Fire in Shinto and the one who brought death into the world by burning his mother, Izanami, to death as she gave birth to him. This made his father, Izanagi, kill him with the Sword of Totsuka.
