- I don't think so. C1-4 are all simple variations of Exploding Clay, but C0 actually works a bit differently, as it consumes the entire body. Also, the third databook has separate articles only for Exploding Clay (covering C1-4) and C0. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 20:37, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

- I thought the Iwa-kinjutsu was the Exploding clay.

- The Iwagakure kinjutsu apparently allows one to mix chakra with various substances such as clay. It is likely the way Deidara developed those hands in his hands and chest. I could see how that would be a kinjutsu, as it alters the body quite drastically.
- However, Exploding Clay itself doesn't really seem to be a kinjutsu. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 11:39, March 23, 2010 (UTC)
Explosive chakra levels?
In his fight with Sasuke, Deidara mentioned something about incresing his chakra level form C1 to C2. In C0, something about his explosive chakra is also mentioned. So wouldn't that mean he increses his chakra levels to use higher-ranking clay techniques? --GoDai (talk) 23:44, May 28, 2010 (UTC)
- The clay can be defused if lightning chakra hits it, just that. It can still hurt people, even if they are lightning-natured. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 15:12, August 4, 2011 (UTC)
- The Raikage's lightning armour isn't really offensive natured, people have touched it and it's done nothing to them.--Cerez365™ 12:17, August 5, 2011 (UTC)
Could it be that the chakra natures for this technique are Earth Release and Yang Release? Because Yang Release brings life into a form. And we already know that Exploding Clay is an earth-based technique. User talk: Lidor 12:16, September 16, 2011 (UTC)
- I see your point, but I don't have much faith in it. This technique already has Earth Release from the clay and Explosion Release, putting Yang Release in the mix makes this way too complex. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 01:17, September 17, 2011 (UTC)
- Maybe the jutsu has 3 chakra natures, like Dust release:
- Yang - the clay moves on it's own.
- Fire - from the explosion.

- Explosion Release will be the result of two chakra natures already, most likely fire and lightning, and the clay is earth. Dust Release techniques themselves don't have three natures, it is one nature made from merging three natures. Deidara doesn't merge earth and explosion to make a new nature, he just uses both natures to account for different parts of the technique.

The point is that it must be more than just earth and fire or fire and lighting ... his clay was basically alive so i believe the guy above got it right ... earth+yang for caly and fire+yin to explode it probably O_O--188.8.131.52 (talk) 21:59, September 17, 2011 (UTC)
- The clay is not alive. He controls it, just like Shikamaru controls his shadow.--Kind-Hearted-One (talk) 01:51, September 18, 2011 (UTC)
- In Naruto Shippuden episode 123, Deidara says "my creations come to life" and the ability of Yang release is to breath life into a form, so... User talk: Lidor 17:09, September 18, 2011 (UTC)
