The '''Rasengan''' is a powerful [[A-rank]] technique invented by the Fourth Hokage, [[Minato Namikaze]], which he created by observing the [[Tailed Beast Ball]]. Minato spent three years developing the Rasengan; his plan was to take the [[shape transformation]] of one's [[chakra]] to the "''highest possible point''" and then combine it with his [[Nature Transformation|chakra's nature affinity]], creating a technique that did not need the aid of time-consuming [[hand seals]] to control. He died before he could accomplish this, but on shape transformation alone, the Rasengan is still a very useful, powerful, versatile, and difficult technique to learn and master.
+
The '''Rasengan''' is a spinning ball of [[chakra]] formed and held in the palm of the user's hand.
   
== Usage ==
+
== Overview ==
The Rasengan does not require any hand seals to use, relying only on the chakra control of the user. Once it is complete, it becomes self-sustaining, which does not give the Rasengan a definite limit like the [[Chidori]]. The compacted nature and moving speed of the chakra allows the Rasengan to grind into whatever it comes in contact with to inflict major damage. This tends to launch the target backward after being hit or, if the target is lying on the ground or being launched to the ground, the destructive force is enough to form a crater. In an anime filler arc, Naruto was able to somehow throw the Rasengan into a wall, making it a mid-range projectile technique.<ref>''Naruto'' episode 194</ref> It has been noted a few times that the Rasengan is superior to its counterpart, the Chidori, by [[Jiraiya]], [[Kakashi Hatake]], and even [[Sasuke Uchiha]] after seeing the after effects of the Rasengan on a water tower.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 176, pages 10-12</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 314, page 12</ref>
+
The Rasengan was created by [[Minato Namikaze]], which he based on the [[Tailed Beast Ball]].<ref>Chapter 519</ref> He spent three years creating the Rasengan,<ref name="c151">Chapter 151</ref> which he intended to be the highest form of [[shape transformation]].<ref name="c321"/> Like many of Minato's jutsu, the Rasengan does not require [[hand seal]]s to perform. Once it is formed, it also does not require any additional chakra to sustain it, which means that there is no definite limit to the number of times that the Rasengan can be used. Though the Rasengan's shape is consistent from user to user, its size varies from only barely large enough to be noticeable to much larger than the user's hand. With greater experience with the Rasengan comes a larger size.
   
The Rasengan was designed to use the caster's elemental affinities. Minato was unable to add his affinities to his Rasengan before he died, while [[Kakashi Hatake]] tried to add his [[lightning]] element to his Rasengan, but was unable to and explains that he created the Chidori and [[Lightning Cutter]] instead, which require a certain point of shape and nature manipulation itself.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 321, pages 9-10</ref> Naruto was the first to add his [[wind]] affinity to his Rasengan to create the [[Wind Release: Rasengan]], and even advanced it up to the point that he could create the far more powerful and destructive version, [[Wind Release: Rasenshuriken]].
+
[[Jiraiya]] describes the Rasengan as stronger than the [[Chidori]],<ref>Chapter 143</ref> a statement that [[Sasuke Uchiha]] concurs with after comparing the damage caused by the two attacks.<ref>Chapter 176, pages 10-12</ref> On contact, the Rasengan grinds into its target, propels them along the Rasengan's trajectory - either away from the user or into the ground beneath them - and at some point bursts, causing severe damage at the point of contact.<ref>Chapter 168</ref>

{{ImgRight|Rasengan Balloon.png|Naruto using a water balloon for the first step.}}
In Part I, [[Jiraiya]] taught [[Naruto Uzumaki]] how to use the Rasengan, breaking the learning process into three steps:
+
The Rasengan requires extremely refined chakra control, something that very few ninja naturally possess. For this reason the Rasengan is difficult to master. In order to help others gain the necessary chakra control, learning to use the Rasengan is broken into three steps:<ref>Chapter 426</ref>
  +
#'''Rotation''' - the user learns to spin their chakra in multiple directions at once. To help in this regard, users may be given a water balloon so that they can mark their progress by the churning water; this step is complete once the users is able to burst the balloon with their chakra.<ref>Chapter 150</ref> It is important for the user to know which direction their body naturally spins its chakra for this step.<ref name="c151"/>
  +
#'''Power''' - the user must increase the volume and density of chakra they output. To help in this regard, users may be given a rubber ball: there is no water inside to help them burst the exterior and the rubber shell is thicker than a balloon's.<ref>Chapter 152</ref>
  +
#'''Containment''' - the user must combine the first two steps into a contained sphere. To help in this regard, users may be given a balloon to help them visualise the intended shape; if the balloon is popped or otherwise moves, mastery is not yet achieved.<ref>Chapter 155</ref>
   
* The first step was learning how to burst a water balloon by spinning the water inside in multiple directions at once using only the user's chakra, which emphasises rotation.
+
Completion of the final step is by far the most difficult. For this reason, [[Naruto Uzumaki]] and [[Konohamaru Sarutobi]] both use [[shadow clone]]s to help them with forming the Rasengan, the clone's hands being used to create the shell. This gives each of them a shortcut to using the Rasengan without spending the time to fully master their chakra.<ref>Chapter 167</ref> Both do eventually learn to use the Rasengan without clones: Naruto during the [[Fourth Shinobi World War]];<ref name="C642">Chapter 642, page 13</ref> Konohamaru at some point prior to ''[[Boruto: Naruto the Movie]]''.
* The second step was for the user to burst a rubber ball, and since rubber is thicker, and air is completely different from water, it forces the user to use denser chakra to break it. This step emphasises power.
 
* The third and final step was to combine both step one and two by spinning chakra inside a balloon without moving the balloon itself, emphasising stability of the sphere shape.
 
 
Although users generally learn how to form the Rasengan with one hand, Naruto and [[Konohamaru Sarutobi]] use one or more [[shadow clone]]s to help in the creation. By having the hands of the shadow clones act as shells, Naruto and Konohamaru can complete and use the technique without using any extra time to master their chakra control.

While Naruto has found new ways to use this technique, he still needs clones to make his Rasengan.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 519, page 13</ref>
+
There are two broad methods by which the standard Rasengan's offensive potential can be increased: making the Rasengan itself bigger, as with the [[Big Ball Rasengan]]; using more than one Rasengan at a time, as with [[Spiralling Serial Spheres]].
 
During his training with Jiraiya, Naruto improved the Rasengan with the [[Big Ball Rasengan]]. An anime exclusive flashback explained that the Big Ball Rasengan's invention resulted from Jiraiya's remark that it would be easier to hit an opponent with a larger Rasengan.<ref>''Naruto: Shippūden'' episode 188</ref> Later, Naruto mixed his wind-natured chakra to start developing the [[Wind Release: Rasengan]], as it was originally intended. Naruto took the Rasengan even further than his father by creating the [[Wind Release: Rasenshuriken]], a variant of the Wind Release: Rasengan. However, this new technique not only damaged the opponent's [[chakra circulatory system]], but also inflicted the same type of damage to Naruto's arm, making it a double-edged sword. Even so, Naruto overcame this obstacle as shown during his fight with [[Pain]] when, in [[Sage Mode]], he threw the Rasenshuriken, preventing any damage done to his own body, and increasing its power, causing disintegration on contact.
 
   
[[File:Odama rasengan.jpg|thumb|left|Naruto using Sage Art: Big Ball Rasengan.]]
+
Minato created the Rasengan with the intention of of combining it with his own [[nature]], a task that proved too difficult for him to complete prior to his death. [[Kakashi Hatake]] also failed to combine the Rasengan with his own [[lightning]]-nature, causing him to invent the Chidori instead.<ref name="c321">Chapter 321, pages 9-10</ref> Naruto initially struggles to combine the Rasengan with his [[wind]]-nature, which he describes as needing to look left and right at the same time.<ref>Chapter 329</ref> He is eventually able to overcome this obstacle by using a shadow clone to provide the nature transformation while he and another shadow clone form the Rasengan,<ref>Chapter 330</ref> thereby creating the [[Wind Release: Rasengan]]. By further shaping the Wind Release: Rasengan, Naruto creates the [[Wind Release: Rasenshuriken]]. In ''Boruto: Naruto the Movie'', [[Boruto Uzumaki]] unknowingly adds his wind-nature to his Rasengan, allowing him to throw it at targets.
Naruto can also wield a Rasengan in both of his hands while in Sage Mode. [[Sage Art: Big Ball Rasengan]] uses two Big Ball Rasengan, each the size of his own body, while [[Sage Technique: Spiralling Serial Spheres]] uses two regular Rasengan. Jiraiya is suggested to have been capable of doing something similar. When teaching Naruto the Rasengan, he held the Rasengan in one hand and does the water balloon exercise in his other hand. Both Jiraiya and Naruto can create even larger Rasengan, the [[Ultra-Big Ball Rasengan]] and [[Sage Art: Ultra-Big Ball Rasengan]] respectively. Naruto can even mass a large group of Ultra-Big Ball Rasengan and launch them at one target as the [[Sage Art: Many Ultra-Big Ball Spiralling Serial Spheres]], which could even damage [[Kurama]].
 
   
Naruto is now using his [[Tailed Beast Chakra Arms|chakra arms]] in his [[Nine-Tails Chakra Mode]] to create a new Rasengan, the [[Tailed Beast Rasengan]], which is even more similar to the [[Tailed Beast Ball]] than the Rasengan originally was. While in it, he can use the basic Rasengan with just one hand.

Naruto had shown that when he was under the influence of the Nine-Tails' chakra, he could improve his use of the standard Rasengan and simultaneously make up for his shortcomings in performing the technique. The chakra shroud surrounding him in his [[Naruto Uzumaki's Jinchūriki Forms#Version 1|one-tailed form]] served as the shell to stabilise the Rasengan's chakra, thus he did not need a clone to help as usual. Due to the influence exhibited by the Nine-Tails' chakra, this Rasengan changed from its yellow or blue colour to a purple, orange, or red colour, made stronger than its standard version.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 232, pages 11-12</ref><ref>''Naruto'' episode 134</ref> Despite the fact that some video games give it its own name, {{translation|'''Demon Fox Rasengan'''|妖狐螺旋丸|Yōko Rasengan|lit meaning=Demon Fox Spiralling Sphere}} and {{translation|'''Vermilion Rasengan'''|朱い螺旋丸|Shui Rasengan|lit meaning=Vermilion Spiralling Sphere}}, it is fundamentally the same technique.
+
Naruto, as a [[jinchūriki]], can use the [[Nine-Tails]]' chakra to assist in using the Rasengan. While using a [[version 1]] cloak in Part I, he makes a Rasengan without the aid of a shadow clone, using the cloak itself to contain it.<ref>Chapter 232, pages 11-12</ref> Due to the Nine-Tails' influence, this Rasengan is darker in colour and much stranger. Different video games have called it {{translation|"Demon Fox Rasengan"|妖狐螺旋丸|Yōko Rasengan|lit meaning=Demon Fox Spiralling Sphere}}, {{translation|"Vermilion Rasengan"|朱い螺旋丸|Shui Rasengan|lit meaning=Vermilion Spiralling Sphere}}, and {{translation|"Nine-Tails Rasengan"|九尾螺旋丸|Kyūbi Rasengan|lit meaning=Nine-Tails Spiralling Sphere}}. After learning to use the [[Nine-Tails Chakra Mode]] in Part II, Naruto uses [[chakra arms]] in place of a shadow clone to help him create the Rasengan. Because he can manifest multiple chakra arms at once, this in turn means he can use multiple Rasengan simultaneously, such as for the [[Spiralling Strife Spheres]].
   
[[File:Rasenrangan 1.png|thumb|left|Naruto forming the Spiralling Strife Spheres while in Nine-Tails Chakra Mode.]]
+
The Nine-Tails is uncooperative when Naruto first starts using the Nine-Tails Chakra Mode, preventing him from using the [[Tailed Beast Ball]]. He tries to create an alternative in the [[Tailed Beast Rasengan]], but he's unable to do so. The Nine-Tails does eventually agree to work with him, allowing him to use Tailed Beast Ball and thus making the Tailed Beast Rasengan unnecessary. Naruto is later given brief access to the other [[tailed beast]]s' chakra, whose natures he can apply to the Rasengan and it variants, as seen with the [[Super Tailed Beast Rasenshuriken]].
During his training with [[Killer B]], Naruto was informed that the Rasengan follows the same properties as the [[Tailed Beast Ball]], in that it's a technique that compresses chakra into a ball. The main difference between the two is the rotation used to stabilise the Rasengan. Because the Tailed Beast Ball is unusable unless Naruto can completely transform into the Nine-Tails, Naruto must instead learn how to form a Rasengan by mixing a balance of black "positive" and white "negative" chakra at an 8:2 ratio. He can form the [[Tailed Beast Rasengan]], but it isn't yet fully functional. Naruto has also created new variants of the Rasengan with [[chakra arms]] while in [[Nine-Tails Chakra Mode]] such as the [[Spiralling Strife Spheres]], the [[Spiralling Absorption Sphere]], and the [[Planetary Rasengan]]. Using the chakra arms, he is also able to create a [[Mini-Rasenshuriken|miniature version of the Rasenshuriken]] with just his index finger and two small chakra arms.

The Rasengan is a spinning ball of chakra formed and held in the palm of the user's hand.

Overview Edit

The Rasengan was created by Minato Namikaze, which he based on the Tailed Beast Ball.[2] He spent three years creating the Rasengan,[3] which he intended to be the highest form of shape transformation.[4] Like many of Minato's jutsu, the Rasengan does not require hand seals to perform. Once it is formed, it also does not require any additional chakra to sustain it, which means that there is no definite limit to the number of times that the Rasengan can be used. Though the Rasengan's shape is consistent from user to user, its size varies from only barely large enough to be noticeable to much larger than the user's hand. With greater experience with the Rasengan comes a larger size.

Jiraiya describes the Rasengan as stronger than the Chidori,[5] a statement that Sasuke Uchiha concurs with after comparing the damage caused by the two attacks.[6] On contact, the Rasengan grinds into its target, propels them along the Rasengan's trajectory - either away from the user or into the ground beneath them - and at some point bursts, causing severe damage at the point of contact.[7]

Learning Edit

Rasengan Balloon

Naruto using a water balloon for the first step.

The Rasengan requires extremely refined chakra control, something that very few ninja naturally possess. For this reason the Rasengan is difficult to master. In order to help others gain the necessary chakra control, learning to use the Rasengan is broken into three steps:[8]

  1. Rotation - the user learns to spin their chakra in multiple directions at once. To help in this regard, users may be given a water balloon so that they can mark their progress by the churning water; this step is complete once the users is able to burst the balloon with their chakra.[9] It is important for the user to know which direction their body naturally spins its chakra for this step.[3]
  2. Power - the user must increase the volume and density of chakra they output. To help in this regard, users may be given a rubber ball: there is no water inside to help them burst the exterior and the rubber shell is thicker than a balloon's.[10]
  3. Containment - the user must combine the first two steps into a contained sphere. To help in this regard, users may be given a balloon to help them visualise the intended shape; if the balloon is popped or otherwise moves, mastery is not yet achieved.[11]

Completion of the final step is by far the most difficult. For this reason, Naruto Uzumaki and Konohamaru Sarutobi both use shadow clones to help them with forming the Rasengan, the clone's hands being used to create the shell. This gives each of them a shortcut to using the Rasengan without spending the time to fully master their chakra.[12] Both do eventually learn to use the Rasengan without clones: Naruto during the Fourth Shinobi World War;[13] Konohamaru at some point prior to Boruto: Naruto the Movie.

Improvement Edit

Great Ball Rasengan

Naruto using the Big Ball Rasengan.

There are two broad methods by which the standard Rasengan's offensive potential can be increased: making the Rasengan itself bigger, as with the Big Ball Rasengan; using more than one Rasengan at a time, as with Spiralling Serial Spheres.

Minato created the Rasengan with the intention of of combining it with his own nature, a task that proved too difficult for him to complete prior to his death. Kakashi Hatake also failed to combine the Rasengan with his own lightning-nature, causing him to invent the Chidori instead.[4] Naruto initially struggles to combine the Rasengan with his wind-nature, which he describes as needing to look left and right at the same time.[14] He is eventually able to overcome this obstacle by using a shadow clone to provide the nature transformation while he and another shadow clone form the Rasengan,[15] thereby creating the Wind Release: Rasengan. By further shaping the Wind Release: Rasengan, Naruto creates the Wind Release: Rasenshuriken. In Boruto: Naruto the Movie, Boruto Uzumaki unknowingly adds his wind-nature to his Rasengan, allowing him to throw it at targets.

Senjutsu Influence Edit

Minato vs Madara

Minato using Sage Technique: Rasengan.

When in Sage Mode, the user can use a senjutsu-enhanced version known as Sage Technique: Rasengan (仙術・螺旋丸, Senjutsu: Rasengan, English TV: Sage Art: Rasengan, Literally meaning: Sage Technique: Spiraling Sphere).[16] It is fundamentally the same as the normal version, except stronger. While in Sage Mode, users have an easier time forming larger Rasengan, such as the Ultra-Big Ball Rasengan. For Naruto, it is while using Sage Mode that he is first able to throw the Wind Release: Rasenshuriken, which he was previously unable to do because it would sporadically lose its shape.

Tailed Beast Influence Edit

Vermillion Rasengan

Naruto in his one-tailed form, preparing the Rasengan.

Naruto, as a jinchūriki, can use the Nine-Tails' chakra to assist in using the Rasengan. While using a version 1 cloak in Part I, he makes a Rasengan without the aid of a shadow clone, using the cloak itself to contain it.[17] Due to the Nine-Tails' influence, this Rasengan is darker in colour and much stranger. Different video games have called it "Demon Fox Rasengan" (妖狐螺旋丸, Yōko Rasengan, Literally meaning: Demon Fox Spiralling Sphere), "Vermilion Rasengan" (朱い螺旋丸, Shui Rasengan, Literally meaning: Vermilion Spiralling Sphere), and "Nine-Tails Rasengan" (九尾螺旋丸, Kyūbi Rasengan, Literally meaning: Nine-Tails Spiralling Sphere). After learning to use the Nine-Tails Chakra Mode in Part II, Naruto uses chakra arms in place of a shadow clone to help him create the Rasengan. Because he can manifest multiple chakra arms at once, this in turn means he can use multiple Rasengan simultaneously, such as for the Spiralling Strife Spheres.

The Nine-Tails is uncooperative when Naruto first starts using the Nine-Tails Chakra Mode, preventing him from using the Tailed Beast Ball. He tries to create an alternative in the Tailed Beast Rasengan, but he's unable to do so. The Nine-Tails does eventually agree to work with him, allowing him to use Tailed Beast Ball and thus making the Tailed Beast Rasengan unnecessary. Naruto is later given brief access to the other tailed beasts' chakra, whose natures he can apply to the Rasengan and it variants, as seen with the Super Tailed Beast Rasenshuriken.

Trivia Edit

  • The Rasengan's colour is depicted inconsistently in the series. In the manga it is typically yellow and in the anime it is typically blue. Promotional and other supplementary material is even more varied, showing the Rasengan and its variants to be red, orange, or white with no obvious pattern.
  • In Naruto: Shippūden episode 194, Naruto throws his Rasengan, which he is not shown to be able to do in the manga.
  • In Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 3, Jiraiya can spew Fire Release onto his Rasengan, creating the Fire Release: Great Flame Rasengan.
