Scorch Release (灼遁, Shakuton; Viz "Scorch Style") is an advanced chakra nature kekkei genkai. This nature creates 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. It is suggested that this nature is comprised of fire and wind elements.
- 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.
