|Anime||Naruto Episode #178|
According to the villagers of Hoshigakure, this meteorite, incorrectly called a "star" (星, hoshi) by the villagers, crash landed in the Land of Bears roughly 200 years prior to the start of the series. In the vicinity of the crash, an entire forest was destroyed, and plants and trees would not be able to grow for years to come. It used to sit in the middle of the Hoshi-nin training dōjō, resting on the eagle claw pedestal, but was eventually destroyed by Naruto Uzumaki after Akahoshi fused it into his chest.
By utilising the chakra-enhancing radiation from the meteorite, villagers could obtain supernatural chakra levels and manipulate its shape and forms to match various situations. Its most prominent use is the Mysterious Peacock Method. This is not without its drawbacks, however. Improper chakra control can bring serious sometimes life-threatening, conditions to its users. Sumaru's parents, Natsuhi and Hotarubi were the only two ninja to master this technique, but even then, there is a high chance of dying from a side-effect of enhanced chakra, as seen with Hotarubi. For this reason, the Third Hoshikage discontinued the training. When Akahoshi fused it into his chest, the meteorite granted him a great increase in chakra, but in exchange his chakra went haywire.
