I do not have a link to the 2nd Databook, but does it actually say that his strength is needed? Can any old earth ninja use it? It may be just an inconsistincy or just a demonsrtation of how different Narutoverse humans are, but this kind of strength should have crushed Choji's chest.

Anyone? Thomas Finlayson (talk) 00:17, June 30, 2010 (UTC)
Hmm...since I am the only one speaking, I guess I will devise some counterarguments. 'How could that huge rock be lifted in the first place if not with immense strength?' Answer: in a manner similiar manner to this without snapping the spine. Using jutsu to negate the weight. Hypothetically you could emit chakra from your palms as an additional force.

I've told this once, and I'll say it again, you try too hard to make sense of things. Most likely, it comes from the databook. I just checked the page history, and from what I see, this is here since the first revision, which appears very much like a short databook entry.

Would not be the first to tell me that, though I do not remember when you said that last. There have been some initial errors before I might add, so that is not the best basis.
Went through ShounenSuki's translations, and could not find it listed. Thomas Finlayson (talk) 22:38, June 30, 2010 (UTC)

Hmm...was partly right after all; chakra was required which explains the situation a bit more, though strength still played a big role. Thomas Finlayson (talk) 01:11, July 3, 2010 (UTC)
