Dust Release (塵遁, Jinton, Viz: Particle Style) is a combined nature transformation kekkei tōta, an advanced version of kekkei genkai, made up of techniques that mix earth, wind, and fire-based chakra to create pulverising force. The techniques of this nature initially form as a small three-dimensional object (e.g. a cube, a cone, etc.) composed of chakra that forms between the user's hands. When the technique is released, the form expands and surrounds the target. This nature allows the user to manipulate molecules, giving them the ability to disintegrate anything on a molecular level within the boundaries of the three-dimensional form.


  • In the anime, it is stated that kekkei tōta users have an affinity for all three of the natures they can combine.[2]
  • In Gaara Hiden: A Sandstorm Mirage, it was stated that by combining two different kekkei genkai — in this case Lava and Steel Release — in one attack, the resulting attack would be a "pseudo-kekkei tōta" (擬似血継淘汰, Giji Kekkei Tōta).
