The user sends their kikaichū to spread over a wide range, and the moment they locate the target, the insects gather at once, forming a sphere around the target. They then attach themselves to the target and begin eating away at their chakra. Even if the target manages to escape, the insects will immediately follow.


  • In the Ultimate Ninja Storm series, this technique is instead used to send a big, slow moving sphere of insects towards the opponent.
