'''Orochimaru's Juinjutsu''' are the cursed seals that were an often-used technique of [[Orochimaru]] in the series.
+
These cursed seals are created and utilised by Orochimaru.
   
 
== Overview ==
 
== Overview ==
Orochimaru usually gave his [[cursed seal]] to his most powerful and unique followers and guinea pigs to either make them his strongest warriors or to prepare them to become a potential host bodies in the future or simply as test subjects. To apply a cursed seal, Orochimaru usually bites his intended target. As he had sharp fangs and an [[Soft Physique Modification|extendible neck]], this was a relatively simple task. The seal then appeared on the body of the victim near the puncture wound, which would cause them to subsequently lose consciousness. The design of the seals could either vary from person-to-person or was dependent on the type of seal Orochimaru chose to brand the victim with. If the victim had survived the application of the seal, they would awaken with the first level of the seal activated and enraged due to the seal's influence.
+
Lacking a body strong enough to handle [[Sage Mode]], Orochimaru had to create an alternative method of utilising [[senjutsu]]. Orochimaru thus used [[Jūgo]], whose body [[Jūgo's Clan's Natural Energy Absorption|naturally produces an enzyme]] that triggers [[Sage Transformation|bodily transformations]], to develop a brand of cursed seals that would feed off the wielder's [[chakra]] while supplying them with Orochimaru's senjutsu chakra.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 349, pages 9-11</ref><ref name="ch579">''Naruto'' chapter 579, page 16</ref> As a result, those compatible with the cursed seals are also compatible with Jūgo, allowing him to [[Cellular Regeneration Ejection|transplant]] his own flesh and chakra into their bodies.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 413, page 15</ref>
   
Orochimaru originally developed the cursed seals through experimentation on [[Jūgo]], whose body naturally produces an enzyme that triggers [[Sage Transformation|bodily transformations]], on which the cursed seal is based.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 579, page 16</ref> Like in Jūgo and his [[Jūgo's Clan|clan members]], the unrefined enzyme, extracted from him produces rage and madness in those exposed to it,<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 349, page 9</ref> while the cursed seal does not have such deficiency. Similarly, Jūgo is not limited to a single transformation, and can change the advantages of his form to fit the situation. It should also be noted that anyone who survives the application of the cursed seal is "compatible" with Jūgo. This was shown when he was able to transplant some of his flesh to Sasuke.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 413, page 15</ref>
+
In addition to his various test subjects, Orochimaru gave cursed seals to some of his most powerful and unique followers, either to enhance their abilities or to prepare them for becoming potential [[Living Corpse Reincarnation|host bodies]]. To apply a cursed seal, Orochimaru bites the recipient, doing so with the aid of his sharp fangs and [[Soft Physique Modification|extendible neck]]. The seal then appears on the body of the victim near the puncture wound before causing them to lose consciousness.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 49, pages 17-19</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 50, pages 1-5</ref> If the victim survives the application of the seal, they subsequently awaken with its first state activated.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 55, pages 19-20</ref> Orochimaru has created a wide array of cursed seals, so the appearance and power of the seals vary, with all known variations comprising of three identical marks arranged in a circular pattern.
   
The cursed seals that are partially made from Orochimaru's chakra, also contain parts of his consciousness, and thus allows him to be revived when combined with a piece of his DNA to utilise the [[Evil Releasing Method]] on a host like [[Anko Mitarashi]], Orochimaru can be resurrected completely even if his original body and self were destroyed.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 593, page 9</ref>
+
As the cursed seals are created with Orochimaru's senjutsu chakra, they also contain portions of his consciousness. When the seal is combined with a piece of his DNA and the [[Evil Releasing Method]] is performed, Orochimaru can be completely resurrected, even if his body was destroyed or sealed.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 593, page 9</ref>
   
For the anime-exclusive seals, they tend to have fatal side effects if handled improperly, as seen when Mizuki's seal, which is unique in that it requires extra procedures to activate its powers, he nearly died due to using it earlier than he should, and lost all his powers regardless. The ones administrated onto [[Team Guren]] would kill them if they do not take the required medication periodically, which prevents them from escaping Orochimaru's clutches.
+
Besides his transformation-inducing cursed seals, Orochimaru can use a binding seal to restrain victims. Applied through the same neck biting as his other seals, the binding seal spreads across the victim's body, immobilising them. Unlike the other cursed seals, however, the binding seal is not permanent and recedes after a few moments.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 663, pages 11-12</ref>

The state forcefully absorbs a user's chakra while giving Orochimaru's own senjutsu chakra into the user's body in return, granting enhancements comparable to those of [[Sage Mode]].<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 579, page 17</ref> The user must also possess an above-average chakra capacity in order to wield the cursed seal's power.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 412, page 11</ref> The key differences between the sage mode and a cursed seal are that the latter's users have no control over natural energy, thus senjutsu chakra in itself. The forced transformation seemingly eats away at the user's chakra to sustain its state, as [[Anko]] noted, with possibly fatal consequences.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 66, page 16</ref> As long as a user has sufficient chakra to sustain the state, he or she would then obtain additional chakra to perform skills that would have been otherwise incapable of due to exhaustion.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 128, page 16</ref> However, this additional chakra is separate and distinct from the user's own chakra, and techniques generated whilst in second level transformation assume a different colour.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 232, page 14</ref> While the enhancements granted by the cursed seals are noteworthy, they mostly are inferior in comparison to those of Sage Mode.

Because the seals forcibly draws chakra from it's user,<ref name="C66P16"/><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 67, page 7</ref> they will often kill the user when first applied.

Additionally, even if the users survive, their body will not be able to easily control the power of the seal given to them. To compensate for this, Orochimaru developed the [[Mind Awakening Pill]].

The sealing technique [[Four Black Fog Battle Formation]] and [[Dark Sealing Method]] are used to keep the drug from killing the users by placing them in a temporary death state.

The seals have two different levels, and the types of transformations differ from seal to seal. When inactive, the seal is simply a black tattoo on the user's body. Orochimaru has a wide array of cursed seals, so the appearance and power of the seal will usually vary. Each seal always has three identical marks arranged in a circular pattern. When first activated, the marks on the seal glow and replicate, spreading over the user's body. This is known as the {{translation|first level|状態1|Jōtai Ichi|lit meaning=State 1}} of the seal. The degree to which this occurs is dependent on the user, and the degree to which it spreads is proportionate to the overall effect it has. Normally, the wearer of the seal will also experience slight pains during the activation of this level.

These cursed seals are created and utilised by Orochimaru.

Overview Edit

Lacking a body strong enough to handle Sage Mode, Orochimaru had to create an alternative method of utilising senjutsu. Orochimaru thus used Jūgo, whose body naturally produces an enzyme that triggers bodily transformations, to develop a brand of cursed seals that would feed off the wielder's chakra while supplying them with Orochimaru's senjutsu chakra.[3][4] As a result, those compatible with the cursed seals are also compatible with Jūgo, allowing him to transplant his own flesh and chakra into their bodies.[5]

In addition to his various test subjects, Orochimaru gave cursed seals to some of his most powerful and unique followers, either to enhance their abilities or to prepare them for becoming potential host bodies. To apply a cursed seal, Orochimaru bites the recipient, doing so with the aid of his sharp fangs and extendible neck. The seal then appears on the body of the victim near the puncture wound before causing them to lose consciousness.[6][7] If the victim survives the application of the seal, they subsequently awaken with its first state activated.[8] Orochimaru has created a wide array of cursed seals, so the appearance and power of the seals vary, with all known variations comprising of three identical marks arranged in a circular pattern.

As the cursed seals are created with Orochimaru's senjutsu chakra, they also contain portions of his consciousness. When the seal is combined with a piece of his DNA and the Evil Releasing Method is performed, Orochimaru can be completely resurrected, even if his body was destroyed or sealed.[9]

Besides his transformation-inducing cursed seals, Orochimaru can use a binding seal to restrain victims. Applied through the same neck biting as his other seals, the binding seal spreads across the victim's body, immobilising them. Unlike the other cursed seals, however, the binding seal is not permanent and recedes after a few moments.[10]

The anime-exclusive cursed seals tend to have fatal side effects if handled improperly, as seen when Mizuki's seal, which was unique in that it required extra procedures to activate its powers, nearly killed him due to using it earlier than he should and caused him to lose all his powers. The cursed seals administrated to Team Guren would kill them if they do not take the required medication periodically, preventing them from escaping Orochimaru's clutches.

Mechanics Edit

When activated, the cursed seal releases Orochimaru's own senjutsu chakra into the user's body, granting enhancements comparable to those of Sage Mode.[4] The seal eats away at the user's own chakra to sustain its activated state, as Anko Mitarashi noted, with possibly fatal consequences.[1] As long as the user has sufficient chakra to sustain the state, he or she would then obtain additional chakra to perform skills they would have otherwise been incapable of due to exhaustion.[11] However, this additional chakra is separate and distinct from the user's own chakra, altering their chakra signature.[12] Prolonged usage of the cursed seal can corrode both the body and mind of the user due to Orochimaru's chakra being present, making them more susceptible to his influence.[13]

Not all individuals are compatible with these cursed seals, with incompatibility resulting in death. Orochimaru has averaged a ten percent success rate when applying these seals based on his first experiment with ten test subjects, out of which Anko was the sole survivor.[14] Even if the individual survives the initial application, their body will not easily be able to control the seal's power, resulting in intense pain. When the user is unable to control or otherwise suppress their cursed seal, it can forcibly activate and begin draining their chakra whenever they attempt to manipulate it.[15] To compensate for this, Orochimaru developed the Mind Awakening Pill, a drug which forces the user's cursed seal to advance to its second state, though doing so will result in the user's death. The Four Black Fogs Formation and Dark Sealing Method are used to keep the process from killing the user by placing them in a temporary death state.[16] The power of the cursed seal can synchronise with the user's regular body through extended use, exponentially enhancing the abilities of their normal state.[17]

The seals have two different levels, and the types of transformations differ from seal to seal. When inactive, the seal is simply a black mark on the user's body. Upon activation, the marks on the seal glow and replicate, spreading over the user's body. This is known as the first level (状態1, Jōtai Ichi; Literally meaning "State 1") of the seal. The degree to which this occurs is dependent on the user, and the degree to which it spreads is proportionate to the overall effect it has. Normally, the wearer of the seal will also experience slight pains during the activation of this level.

The second level (状態2, Jōtai Ni; Literally meaning "State 2") of the seal causes the black marks to completely envelop the user, followed by many unnatural alterations to their body. Once transformed, common features include eyes with yellow irises and black sclerae, altered skin colour, and longer hair. When in this state, the seal also eats away at the mind and personality of its user, driving them to madness if used for too long. It also takes quite a toll on their body, since they are being mutated by the seal.[18] Skilled users of the cursed seal are able to perform partial transformations in which the aforementioned alterations can be limited to specific parts of the body.[19]

Whereas Jūgo's ability is known as Sage Transformation, the transformations induced by these seals are called "Cursed Seal Transformation" (呪印化, Juinka).[20]
