Scorch Release (灼遁, Shakuton; Viz "Scorch Style") is an advanced nature kekkei genkai made up of techniques that combines fire and wind-based chakra to create scorching heat which capable of heating up an enemy to the point where all the liquid inside their body evaporates, killing the victim and leaving them a desiccated corpse.
- During the Fourth Shinobi World War, while trying to attack the Ten-Tails' main body, Sasuke Uchiha and Naruto Uzumaki combined their fire and wind-natured techniques at the same chakra ratio; resulting in a technique which was called "Scorch Release" by Minato Namikaze. This was due to the fact that fire and wind nature transformations make up the kekkei genkai.
- In the anime, this chakra nature was shown to be weak against Water Release techniques.
