Users

This technique allows the user's spirit to materialise and leave his body, which is then able to take possession of a target, enabling them to freely manipulate the victim's body at will. Dan Katō noted that this technique had been used to kill a great number of shinobi during his lifetime.[1] The only known way to counteract the technique is to trap the user within a barrier, such as the Four Violet Flames Battle Encampment, before they can activate it.[2]

With the release of the Summoning: Impure World Reincarnation technique, a reincarnated Dan was capable of taking control of his ascending spirit for a short period of time using this technique. It crossed a vast distance and was still able to manipulate a person's body as well as transfer chakra to them.[3]

Trivia

  • Dan's ability to cause his soul to exit his body makes him reminiscent of an "ikiryō" (生霊; Literally meaning "living ghost"), from Japanese folklore. An ikiryō is a person whose soul can dwell outside his or her body.
