;Mice
 
:Useful for tracking or searching, and often created in large number. By not taking roads to travel, the "mice" are inconspicuous, making them the most suitable, not just for searches, but also for delivering information obtained from enemy camps to Konoha. Furthermore, if one draws a countless number of mice, it even becomes possible to perform an unworkable number of searches.
 
;Lions
 
:For attacking from a distance, lions can be drawn. They are usually created in small groups to attack foes directly.
 
;Birds
 
:If it's necessary to do reconnaissance from the sky or travel in high-speed, large birds can be drawn and ridden. Smaller birds can also be used to carry [[explosive tag]]s and for long-distance or urgent information delivery. Sai can also quicly draw a bevy of these smaller birds and lead them against the enemy.
 
;Owls
 
:Used in ''[[Naruto Shippūden 2: Bonds]]''.
 
;Leeches
 
:Used as a low damage projectile-like attack. Larger and heavier leeches can also be drawn.
 
;Bats
 
:These drawing can morph into a makeshift umbrella, or attach themselves to the enemy's face and blind them.
 
;Fish
 
:Useful in delivering messages in water.
 
;Snakes
 
:After being drawn quickly, the "snakes" can be used as ropes to restrain someone. With the ability to soundlessly enter through even the smallest crevice, they can also be used for assassination purposes.

Users

The Super Beast Imitating Drawing is a technique that allows the user to bring ink drawings to "life" and act accordingly to the users will.

Usage Edit

The ninja uses chakra-infused ink to quickly draw objects onto his scroll. The moment the brush is removed, the images leap from the paper, grow to life-size, and act according to the user's will. Because they are made of ink, a single blow is usually enough to dispel them. For discreet communiques while undercover, Sai is able to turn the words he writes into small animals, allowing them to travel unnoticed to the intended target, after which the ink animal requires a scroll to revert back into written information.[2] Few techniques rival it in terms of versatility.

List of Drawings Edit

The strongest feature of this ninja art is its ability to create various effects based solely on the user's ingenuity. In addition to the animals it is normally used to create, Sai can produce explosive tags.[3]

Influences Edit

Sai and Inojin training

Two different aesthetic designs used for the technique.

This technique is in reference to the Chōjū-jinbutsu-giga (lit. Animal-person Charicatures), or Chōjū-giga for short, a set of four picture scrolls belonging to the Kōzan-ji Temple in Kyōto, Japan and sometimes credited as the first manga. The scrolls depict various anthropomorphic animals dancing and playing about in a lively ceremony, which seems to be the basis for Sai being able to animate his own drawings for various purposes.

Inojin Yamanaka's usage of the technique differs from his father's in terms of the aesthetic design. Unlike Sai's round drawings, Inojin's have sharp, straight lines. Inoji remarked that his father's sense of style appears to be "old-fashioned" compared to his own.[4]
