Kanji on Technique Formula

Can someone translate the kanji on the technique formula on this pic? I could only make out the first kanji 忍 (nin, endure) and last 絶 (zetsu, absolute). Can't tell the second one if it's awakening (kaku, as in kakusei), and the third seems to have something to do with talisman. Yatanogarasu (Talk) 19:37, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

Check this out. Skitts (talk) 19:40, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks. But I checked a little more, and I think I have the basic boiled down to this: the second kanji is kaku 覚, third is fu 符, and the last is zetsu 絶. Nikaku Fuzetsu (忍覚符絶; Literally meaning "Endurance Awakening Talisman Absolute")? I already left this translation at ShounenSuki's page, but still, here would be a possible for everyone to determine its validity. Yatanogarasu (Talk) 19:49, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

Because Kanji is japanese using chinese symbols for literally the exact same words, I used google translate to get the symbols. The 2nd kanji isn't 覚 meaning awakening. What I got was 忍交符绝, which if you take those and put them into google translate and translate either detect language or chinese into english you get Endure Cross Symbol Absolutely. Now I'm not saying that's EXACTLY what it is, because I don't know how to read Japanese or Chinese. I went to this site,, and looked at all the Kanji they had. The closest one to the 2nd kanji for the FTG formula I found in the 2nd grade set. Where it says "Grade 2 (160 characters) available contents: basic informations, stroke order image, pronunciation audio", right at the edge of the light blue box, go to the 3rd Kanji on the right past the box and you get 交. Now I down't know what these are pronounced as in japanese, but Cross actually sounds fitting due to the use of this technique.

Picture Slideshow

Why are we using that slideshow? The first and second pictures are at angles that do not properly show Minato teleporting. The one where he teleported to Mahiru's foot is more accurate. Yatanogarasu (Talk) 08:00, March 4, 2012 (UTC)

The single image of his with his hand on Mahiru's foot O.o? I know that the sequence in there now is not the best to illustrate the technique (this would be one of the only times I'd support us using .gifs) but one image can and probably will never, properly display the technique.--Cerez365

How about one image of Mahiru alone, then the next, Minato teleports to his foot? Yatanogarasu (Talk) 23:54, March 11, 2012 (UTC)
Unfortunately the scene doesn't play out like that in the anime, as the beginning of that particular event is depicted in close-up, so currently the sequence that is being used is the most viable one. Other than waiting for the scene where Minato confronts A, there is little alternative than to stick with what's already there, although maybe the addition of some concise descriptions to the images could help clarify what is actually occurring. Blackstar1 (talk) 00:54, March 12, 2012 (UTC)
I was also waiting on the A vs. Minato clash to see if better series of images could come from there since that's the best scene(s) with them. So why not simply use them now? I know it's been depicted in the anime, but those images show the technique best.--Cerez365

Yeah, I didn't watch that two-parter close enough to notice, so let's wait for A vs Minato and hope for the best there. Yatanogarasu (Talk) 02:31, March 12, 2012 (UTC)

Yes but what about changing it now O.o It'd look like this:

Much easier to follow and such ye?--Cerez365

Not enough background, looks like its from 3 different chapters. --Gojita (talk) 13:26, March 12, 2012 (UTC)Gojita

Cerez's gallery seems best. Looks like a good display/summary of the technique to me Skitts (talk) 14:47, March 12, 2012 (UTC)
I'm not too sure, as I think the flow of either sequence suffers greatly from the severe angle changes that are present in both, meaning that someone's preference becomes more dependent upon how acquainted they are with the particular scenes. It's a shame that the "two steps" of the technique haven't been clarified, as the inclusion of short descriptions could have really helped. Blackstar1 (talk) 15:47, March 12, 2012 (UTC)
Not too sure what "not enough background" means O.o People are already (or at least should be) well acquainted with how the technique works given that it has appeared in all Naruto-related mediums. This is simply a case where we'd use manga images to depict the sequence of event which could be aided by descriptions with the images: "Minato scatters his kunai over the battlefield" "is able to move from one location to another marked location" etc for example. It's a bit regressive, but with the policy that prohibits the use of .gif files, I don't think any of the current images can "really" show the technique.--Cerez365

Well if concise descriptions are to be included, then I'm fine with using the manga sequence, given that it has better clarity and that I'm under the impression it depicts how Minato is implied to typically employ the technique (i.e. scattering numerous kunai).

Trivia point

So I'm not sure, maybe I'm interpreting it wrongly (and I don't think asking the author will help much) but is there a point to having a trivia point that says:

"In the games, most of Minato's ultimate techniques involves teleporting behind his opponent using Rasengan."
I mean, isn't that Minato's whole fighting style O.o.--Cerez365

Hiraishin Lv 2

should we add in the trivia section that in the indonesian version of the volume, there is hiraishin lv 2..?? [1] [2]

minato says "inilah hiraishin level dua (english: that(this) was hiraishin lv 2)"...

sorry for my bad english... ^.^ (talk) 09:57, March 18, 2012 (UTC)Jengkol

random here just wanna add how the flying thunder god jutsu seems to be more about reverse summoning than anything else mentioned in its article.—This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) .

Okay. What is in the article is pretty much a direct translation from the databook.--Cerez365

Just wondering on the Users of the technique

Didn't Naruto use this in chapter 544? or was that something else?—This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) .

No Naruto didn't use hiraishin no jutsu, he just used the immense amount of speed granted by the 9-tails chakra mode. Yamato just likened it to the hiraishin no jutsu. (talk) 09:37, September 14, 2012 (UTC) yomiko-chan

I disagree. I think Naruto did use it. He learned it from his dad during their time together. Both Tsunade and Bee thought it looked "just like a yellow flash". I'm sure A fought with many Jinchurikis before, first example being Bee himself who has an excellent bond with Hachibi, yet it is still said "naruto is the second to ever evade it". Therefore I think it's no coincidence, speed and Biju power isn't enough to dodge it - Naruto can not only USE flying thunder god, he perfected it (like he did with Rasengan, his dad's other S-level technique) (talk) 10:49, November 28, 2012 (UTC) Kobi Mangafan

  1. The Flying thunder god technique requires a seal at the place where the user wants to go. Naruto hasn't placed out any seals.
  2. The Flying thunder god technique summons a person to the seal, thus no movement and no flash.
  3. Minato didn't get the nickname "yellow flash" from using the Flying thunder god technique, but from his "normal" speed. Jacce | Talk | Contributions 11:19, November 28, 2012 (UTC)

It was just a body flicker my god...--Elveonora (talk) 19:08, November 28, 2012 (UTC)

Level 2 and game

So, I was checking new gameplay video, and it seems that, at least for video game purposes, they do consider the "level 2" a different technique, it's Minato's ninjutsu during awakenings in UNS3. They called it "Flying Raijin: Second Stage", that's probably 飛雷神二の段, which we would translate as "Flying Thunder God: Second Step". Looks like the same thing he did against Obito, the action in the video was a bit fast, but that's what it looked like. That'll probably be created for video game, but the question is, do we consider it a separate technique manga and anime wise as well? I know we always considered it just an explanation of the technique itself. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 21:10, November 3, 2012 (UTC)

Anyone? Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 22:46, November 6, 2012 (UTC)

No, "Flying Thunder God Technique Level 2" sounds stupid as an article. But if a videogame names them separately, we will do so... so canonical article nope, but two game articles yep if that bothers you ;)--Elveonora (talk) 23:19, November 6, 2012 (UTC)

The video game technique "Flying Thunder God: Sequential Steps" was most likely named after what the manga called "Flying Thunder God: Second Step". It wouldn't be anything "new". What I wonder is if we should do like it was done with Sasori. There were at least a few of his techniques in the manga and anime that were never named, but named in the video games, so those were used. I don't know if they were considered techniques in their own right before the games came out, that happened way before I knew what Naruto was. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 23:45, November 6, 2012 (UTC)

Those 2 Sasori's techniques were unique, this is flying thunder god no matters how you look at it. Would be like making a separate article for the ranged variant of Rasenshuriken. Also what about this? --Elveonora (talk) 01:31, November 7, 2012 (UTC)

I don't know. I liken it to when one technique is used a new way and although the newly named technique is simply a different way to use the very same technique. I think of it like the naruto uzumaki 2k barrage vs the original naruto uzumaki barrage. (talk) 01:50, November 7, 2012 (UTC) yomiko-chan

If the game lists it as a technique then I believe we should add it as a game technique without letting one media colour the other. Maybe make a note that in the canon series it's a misconception about the "two steps" and such.--Cerez365

How does he know when to dodge the attack of a lightning-fast punch from A? Minato may be fast, but it dosen't increase his reflexes.--Aeonophic (talk) 21:25, November 18, 2012 (UTC)Aeonophic

It gives him the advantage by only requiring him to notice the attack is coming, not try and maneuver out of the way, the seal does it for him. --Hawkeye2701 (talk) 21:45, November 18, 2012 (UTC)
He dodges it at the last possible moment. Though Minato has good reflexes, it's not something that he does reflex-wise, to me at least, it seems as though, A was simply an inch away from punching Minato and the speed of his technique allowed him to fly in that short gap of time.--Cerez365

ya know in the first episode and chapter of the series, in the very beginning; Minato and Gamabuna are briefly shown fighting Kurama.. and theres a bright flash ending the flashback.. so im pretty sure that is the first official debut of Hiraishin.--RexGodwin (talk) 05:11, March 8, 2013 (UTC)
