Sage Transformation (仙人化, Senninka) is the result of an unnamed ability wielded by Jūgo's clan. which allows them to passively absorb natural energy, resulting in increased physical abilities and the possibility to perform various shape-shifting feats.


This transformation is a multifaceted ability that permits them to achieve feats ranging from creating various weapon-like appendages to even consuming other human beings, as well as a general increase in their physical capabilities.

In the experiments created by Orochimaru, this ability is referred to as "Cursed Seal Transformation" (呪印化, Juinka).[1] A user can transplant his or her flesh with anyone compatible with such experiments, in the events of a heavy injury, though this will cause the user's body to shrink in size and age.[2]


While these clansmen can absorb natural energy passively without being turned into a statue, as those who failed to learn senjutsu do, their bodies cannot control the immense power surges that accompany the transformation and as such, are prone to sporadically going berserk.[3]
