Scorch Release (灼遁, Shakuton, Viz: Scorch Style) is an advanced chakra nature kekkei genkai that combines fire and earth-based chakra to create scorching chakra that is 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 presumably 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.
