|Sand Lightning Needles|
|English anime||Sand Lightning Rod|
|Movie||Naruto the Movie: Legend of the Stone of Gelel|
This technique is very similar to Sand Drizzle. Gaara launches a large amount of sand in the sky to rain down on the opponent. The sand then forms into needles which stick into the ground and create an electrical charge that drains or otherwise neutralises electricity. Gaara uses this to disable Ranke's Plasma Ball.
