I'd just like to note that it Gaara didn't use Magnetism Release in 557. He simply had some of the 4th Kazekage's Gold Dust mixed into the Sand Clone. [[User:Skitts|Skitts]] ([[User talk:Skitts|talk]]) 17:33, September 28, 2011 (UTC)

I resently uploaded this pic: [[http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/File:Gaara_part_2_720p.png]].

It is only speculation on both ways. Gaara was born withe the black rings around his eyes, babys whoa re just born dont have insomnia, so gaara may indeed have magnetism release like his father, which may be the reason why he was the only one of the 4th's kids who was compatible for the Shukaku, Maybe Magnetism release is a must for being the Shukaku's Jinchuriki? {{unsigned|72.66.90.246}}

What do you think about [[:File:Gaara Shippuden 256.png|this image]] for Gaara's infobox? It is more recent, and it is the way he currently looks,besides that, his kanji is more visible. I'm new to this wiki (hence the hopeful wish to do some changes on it) so I hope I posted everything in order. :)

:While it's true we only saw him using it while transformed, the databook explicitly stated Gaara as the user of Wind Release: Infinite Sand Cloud Great Breakthrough.

::I've seen chakra absorption listed on alot of humans infoboxs.([[User:Kuroiraikou|Kuroiraikou]] ([[User talk:Kuroiraikou|talk]]) 15:26, April 13, 2014 (UTC))
Killer B's [http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Ink_Creation Ink] stemms from Eight-Tails.
 
He is listed as an user because he himself used it with Eigh-Tail's power.
 
By your logic, we should list Naruto as an Fire Release user since in anime Kyubi used fire. But it was Kyubi in control of Naruto's body that used it, not Naruto himself.
 
What I'm trying to say is that Gaara used Wind Release obviously thanks to Shukaku so "Wind Release (with Shukaku sealed) would make me help sleep at night, thanks.

The latests raws prove that Shukaku uses Jiton. Does this not pretty much confirm that Gaara was using Magnetism Release all along? If not through his father's genes (note the eye markings when his father uses Jiton), then surely his ability to manipulate sand was due to Shukaku's ability. As Obito recently demonstrated for us again, bijū skills can remain with a jinchūriki even after extraction.--[[User:Reliops|Reliops]] ([[User talk:Reliops|talk]]) 02:38, April 22, 2014 (UTC)

He no longer can use [http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Wind_Release:_Infinite_Sand_Cloud_Great_Breakthrough this] since he no longer has an additional mouths all over his body.
 
Like Sasuke is listed as an user of Body Shedding with Orochimaru absorbed, I think Gaara should be listed as partially transformed into Shukaku until he shows this without being transformed.

:Wasn't it specifically said that Sasuke could only use that technique because he had absorbed Orochimaru's soul? Any way, annotating Gaara's use of this technique like that would imply that he can only use it while (partially) transformed, and there's simply nothing that really supports this.

: I think the primary argument here stems from Gaara's eyes. The Fourth Kazekage got the same damn eyes when he used Jiton and Gaara was shown in the very next chapter using his father's Gold Dust along with his own sand.

Toroi's Jiton worked completely different from Sunagakure's Jiton. If Yondaime could magnetise stuff like Toroi, he could have simply magnetised a lot of shinobi and impaled them with gold. We need to wait to see how Shukaku's Magnet Release works. We have to see what its effects are. Once we have that clear, we look to see if there are any of Shukaku's or Gaara's sand techniques that have the same effects. If any of the techniques apply, they'll be retroactively called Jiton, much like Sandaime's were when Magnet Release was released, and when Deidara was confirmed a user of Explosion Release.

:@Seelentau - Different genetic versions of the same Kekkei Genkai MIGHT result in different effects. The Sand kekkei genkai specialised in large amount, small objects; akin to sand. The Stone kekkei genkai specialised in small amount, large objects; akin to a ninja tools. This is taken from direct observations. Either way, it is confirmed that Shukaku and Gaara's father both have Magnet Release (JITON, not Jinton -_-), so Gaara both got Magnet release from his father (genetically) and his Bijuu (akin to Roshi, or however he's called).

That isn't what I asked about :{ , besides Gaara can only use those techniques because of the Shukaku, if it wasn't derived from the Shukaku, then Gaara would be able to used it without having the Shukaku sealed inside of him,he was a jinchuriki of the Shukaku, that was the only thing which grannted him these abilities others can do it causing even the Third Kazekage to create a jutsu to '''imitate''' Shukaku's abilties.

@cerez365: When you say "Never been listed as tailed beast skill" does that mean that the Databook labels them as such? Roshi was able to use the [[Lava Release: Scorching Stream Rock Technique]] and it's listed as a tailed beast skill, because we clearly know that the Lava Release abilities are from Son Goku. We don't know if what would have happened if any other Jinchuriki like Roshi was revived in the same way as Gaara. Like I said before its clearly known that the Shukaku's style is unique causing the Third Kazekage to create Iron Sand. Ginkaku and Kinkaku were able to use their tailed beast skills even after they were dead.

Shukaku's ability to control sand is presumably Magnetism Release though, and since Gaara retained that ability, it would appear that his presumed Magnetism Release is naturally aligned with sand.

Wind Release: Drilling Air Bullet is ''not'' a ranked technique. By ranked, we mean having been ranked from E-rank to S-rank, which shows how difficult it is to learn/perform the technique. The ranked sand technique I mentioned is [[Sand Binding Prison]], which is a B-rank technique, according to its entry in the third databook. Tailed beast skill was a category we implemented independently to further categorise techniques. If a technique can be traced back as stemming from a tailed beast, we list it as a tailed beast skill. The reason most of Gaara's sand techniques are not listed as such, as far as I recall, is because of that one B-ranked technique. Having a rank like that has always implied that the technique is learnable/performable by anyone willing to learn. For example, no kekkei genkai technique has ever had a rank, because one doesn't simply learn a kekkei genkai technique.

1) paramagnetism: is a form of magnetism whereby something is attracted to a source via a magnetic field. This is most similar to toroi's magnetic shuriken.
   
I get what your trying to say but then again Masashi Kishimoto does that sometimes
+
2) diamagnetism: type of magnetism which repels objects with a magnetic force. Quartz the main component of sand is diamagnetic and hence why gaara can manipulate it and make it fly through the air. He is essentially manipulating the magnetic forces that repel the sand off the ground.
for example he gave [[Water Release: Great Water Arm Technique]] a rank (B if i remember correctly) we all know that it is derived from the Hozuki Clan's secret technique the [[Hydrification Technique]] which we all know is not supposed to be ranked. At the same time Gaara also used the [[Air Sand Protective Wall]] but it wasn't given a rank, nor was any other technique and I'm pretty sure Gaara wasn't slipping into his Version 1 or 2 forms when we saw him. My point is that we should list his abilities as a tailed beast skill the same was done with the [[Water Release: Great Water Arm Technique]], it is given a rank yet still listed as Hiden. As for the people who say that they shouldn't be listed as such because Gaara could use them even when he was revived, it's a ability that no one except a jinchuriki of Shukaku can use, causing The Third or Fourth Kazekage to create Iron Sand to '''imitate''' the abilities of a previous jinchuriki of the One-Tail
 
We don't know if any one like Roshi would retain them even if they were revived like Gaara, Kinkaku and Ginkaku could retain their Nine-Tailed forms even after death, with the help of no seal. All of this point towards the fact that they can indeed be listed as such.(P.s I the guy who started this discussion.) What do you guys say?

:I believe I have asked ShounenSuki or someone about this a while back. If I am to understand it correctly the innate ability to control sand is the Shukaku's power.

That's what I am arguing about, it is the ability of the One-Tailed Shukaku hence a tailed beast skill, I know about the Sand Shield but basically she's '''hijacking'''(who knows how?) it, the Sand shield is an application of the sand abilites of Shukaku though I'll have to think about it. Her love and will consists of only a small amount of Gaara's abilities and Gaara never used techniques except the Sand Shield based on her mother's love. About your argument that its not a tailed beast skill, well as I recall is "A tailed beast skill is a unique ability or trait used by tailed beasts" but if you still don't agree then I guess we should remove Roshi's Lava Release: Scorching Rock Stream Technique and his magma armor from being a tailed beast skill too huh? Roshi used Lava release ninjutsu because of Son Goku the same argument can be made that all of Roshi's lava jutsu are not technically tailed beast skills but based on a tailed beast skill, the ability to mix the Earth and Fire natures and create a new nature, Lava Release. (I don't get your argument if it's based on a tailed beast skill then its a tailed beast skill itself.)

It doesn't matter if sand isn't magnetic, pure gold isn't magnetic either but Kishimoto has someone using Magnet Release with it. If he wants Gaara to be a magnet release user then he'll tell us so eventually. We cannot presume until then. Because that would mean that Temaru and Kankurō are using Magnet Release presumably with their abilities as well.

We presume a lot of things on this wiki. We presumed Orochimaru had Mokuton because that made sense. We presumed Tsunade has lightning release because that makes sense.

I'm just going to say this and leave the discussion: If Gaara could use Magnet Release he would have no viable reason to ignore the other abilities granted by the nature.

I still don't see how the sand manipulation has anything to do with Magnet Release. The closest thing connecting the two is Naruto's Magnet Release technique, and even that doesn't quite look like sand. Nothing Gaara has ever done resembles all known variants of Magnet Release. I'm not saying that Gaara doesn't have Magnet Release, but with what we have, this isn't the same as the Orochimaru and Tsunade examples.

: Gaara has also manipulated gold dust. Don't forget that. He was able to manipulate his sand and gold dust at the same time, at that. The rings around the Fourth's eyes were obviously meant by Kishi to give us closure to the source behind Gaara's mysterious rings. They were ''never'' stated in the series to be related to insomnia, and originally were speculated to be a result of being Shukaku's jinchūriki, just like Naruto's whiskers. We now know that to be wrong. Seeing as Shukaku has Magnet Release, Gaara's markings were likely permenant, because, unlike the Kazekage, who could freely mold Magnet chakra whenever he wanted, a jinchūriki's chakra is always in contact with a tailed beasts, and so the markings simply stuck. ~ '''''[[User:Ten Tailed Fox|Ten Tailed Fox]]''''' [[File:Sasuke's Rinnegan (Purple).svg|20px|link=User talk:Ten Tailed Fox]] 23:58, July 29, 2014 (UTC)

What TTF said. And if we're going to allow presumptions based on potential for Orochimaru, then surely Gaara more than qualifies? Shukaku has Magnetism Release and manipulates sand.

:What I mean is that prior to that technique, none of Gaara's techniques had ever received a rank. Having a rank pretty much means the technique can be taught to anyone willing to learn it. Sure, there have been unranked techniques which look like they can be taught, but not of all them are like that. Gaara's sand techniques being unranked made sense because they derive from something he got from his tailed beast, meaning this isn't something others could potentially learn simply if they decided to learn. When the Third Databook came out, almost all of his techniques had no rank, but this one had. I'm not saying the rank of the technique changed over time, but the ranking profile of Gaara's techniques did, because one of them became ranked.

First of all, Gaara moved the gold sand with his own sand, not with chakra. Second, when Shukaku aided Naruto, he didn't give him sand, but the Rasengan was still prefixed ''Magnet Release''.

Let's get disingenuous to prove a point. Gaara said he mixed the gold dust with his sand, he didn't say he manipulated it with chakra, but he didn't say he was carrying it either. I believe the implication is clear. I don't recall when Gaara carried hale, but that's an irrelevant example seeing as there is no Ice Releaser that gains dark rings around his eyes. There are two sources that heavily imply Gaara is a Magnetism Release user, is bijū and his father. Not to be repeat myself like a broken record, but the fact his father gains rings around his eyes identical to Gaara's and has a similar fighting style, and then considering the fact Naruto gained the ability through Shukaku, would lead to the presumption that Gaara's ability does, in fact, stem from Magnetism Release.--[[User:Reliops|Reliops]] ([[User talk:Reliops|talk]]) 20:23, July 31, 2014 (UTC)

:And no one disagrees with you on that being a logical deduction. Except it isn't entirely compatible:
  +
* You attribute the rings around eyes to Shukaku
  +
* Except Shukaku doesn't gain any rings while manipulating sand, nor did Naruto gain any rings when he used Magnet Release: Rasengan
  +
* Gaara's father had rings when using Magnet, wasn't jinchuuriki of Shukaku
  +
* Therefore the Magnet rings and Shukaku are unrelated
  +
* Other Magnet Release users like Toroi and (presumably) 3rd Kazekage had no Magnet rings around eyes

"Much like Naruto's fox shaped chakra cloak, the sand is capable of absorbing a wide variety of attacks. However, the defence given to his body still has one weak spot."

::: So, in other words, when Kishi gives you a giant neon banner that tells you everything you were supposed to learn with context clues (this is 1st grade level reading comprehension, how's that for snark?), you'll accept what everyone else already knows?

"Gaara's jinchūriki forms are noticeably different from others' in that it's not made of pure chakra, but of sand. It is, however, possible that the forms that Gaara has shown are partial transformations."

::::While I am one who loves context clues as much as the next guy, Shukaku's Magnet Release has yet to look like sand. When it hit Madara, the cursed seal spread across his body and no sand, unless I missed it terribly.

::::Eye shadow, Bijū (that he doesn't even possess anymore) and familial ties are not, on their own, sufficient evidence to add an advanced chakra nature to his skill set. Kishi has never been subtle with his Kekkei Genkai. Darui revealed his, with the name clearly stated, in the first fight he fought. Sasuke did the same for Blaze Release, as did Sasori with the third Kazekage's. I have plenty of examples, so going entirely on previous information, I believe that if Gaara had Magnet Release, it would have been beaten into our heads. Oh, and I noticed you said you 'sense this discussion getting out of hand', which is pretty ironic given your intentional attitude here. That is the last I'll say on this matter, since I tire of this argument which is obviously getting nowhere.

Maybe it takes less control for Gaara to use partial transformation and shield/armor of sand than chakra cloaks since the sand is imbued with chakra most of times and for Shukaku's body being from sand.

Perhaps it's a mascara. You know, like those young cute emo guys tend to wear.--[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 21:36, July 31, 2014 (UTC)
For 8 Tailed Beasts being able to provide chakra cloaks to their host, and one being different would make Shukaku really unique.
 
So I think Shukaku is like other 8, just Gaara can't use chakra cloak or it's not his style.
 
For example now Naruto's has control over Nine-Tail's chakra but we have not seen him doing a partial transformation or going to version 1/version 2 on his own ... it happened only when the Kyubi triggered it.
 
 
So to put it short I see it as lack of control or a preference but don't want to speculate much.

Nooooo no no nooooo. Utterly against this.
 
 
First of all other shinobi have gone underground before without it being labelled as Earth Release- I remember that being said somewhere that it's not impossible. Sai did it when he went to speak with Orochimaru for example. Orochimaru himself did it when spying on Team 7.
 
 
Secondly where Gaara goes underground, it simply looks like him breaking down the surface of the earth into sand and then submerging himself in it and then reappearing. I believe that it was in that very same filler arc that he said he is able to break down earth and mix this with his own to create even more sand.
 
 
Saying that Gaara uses Earth Release is opening a can of worms I don't think we should call down on ourselves.--[[User:Cerez365|Cerez<small>365</small><sup>™</sup>]][[File:Hyūga Symbol.svg|20px]][[User talk:Cerez365|<sup>(talk)</sup>]] 16:09, April 9, 2012 (UTC)

:How exactly is it "clearly meant to be earth release" when I just provided plausible explanation that it's simply sand? There's a lot more to consider where Gaara is concerned that Kurama and just arbitrarily handing out nature transformations to people. Kurama and Gaara aren't the same.
 
:If you check episode 220 you'll see where Gaara says what I stated before as he begins breaking down the earth to form sand.

He made no mention of using Earth Release there. Just simply that he could create sand through that method. During his fight with Kimimaro, Gaara could be said to have done something similar and summoned a huge amount of sand from underground. As far as I know, that was never considered Earth Release, nor were they at a sandy area like in the SWWIV.--[[User:Cerez365|Cerez<small>365</small><sup>™</sup>]][[File:Hyūga Symbol.svg|20px]][[User talk:Cerez365|<sup>(talk)</sup>]] 17:37, April 10, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
I think it is pretty obvious that he didn't use Earth Release. Gaara's chakra is messed up and he doesn't have the strength in this specific moment to use any chakra move that requires to consume a great amount of chakra , that would be need to avoid this attack (by blocking with some sort of sand wall , shield etc.). So he just used the sand there was around him. He dug himself underground of a moment and then shown up. This technique would require a too small amount of chakra , so he used this.

"I believe that it was in that very same filler arc that he said he is able to break down earth and mix this with his own to create even more sand" Quoted from Cerez. I would just like to indicate that it wasn't just that filler arc where this has been mentioned, in his fight with Kimimaro which has been referenced above, Gaara specifically stated that he can break down minerals in the ground to create sand, in particular the hardest minerals in the ground to create the hardest shield, that mini-shukaku thing that Kimimaro failed to bust through. Now while I could go on a tirade about the definition of sand and whether or not Gaara can control any substance of that consistency, all previous notes on his ability do point to this simply being him dodging the attack by reducing the ground beneath him to sand. --[[User:Hawkeye2701|Hawkeye2701]] ([[User talk:Hawkeye2701|talk]]) 17:49, April 10, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
"This technique changes earth into fine sand by channelling chakra into it, allowing the user to dig through it like a mole. This effect goes around the body (not just the hands), making it just large enough for a person to move through. The user can pinpoint where they are, despite being underground, by sensing the magnetic forces. They can also sense what is happening on the surface and use that information to launch a surprise attack on the enemy.[2][3][4] One can also hide deep in the ground, escaping to a depth where the enemy can't reach. It also appears that after digging, the ground can be returned to its original state, leaving no trace of where the user entered the earth.[5]"

I think it should be stated in the different names section in info box for Gaara, that he was also referred to as the "Golden Child of the Kage".

Although this is probably a very old topic and of course has never received confirmation, but isn't it extremely likely that Gaara's name comes from Arabic َغَار ''ghāra'' "to be jealous".

New part 2 image Edit

I resently uploaded this pic: [[1]]. And I find it better than the current one, since it put a bit more distance to him, so you can see all his hair and sholders. --Kasan94 (talk) 18:21, November 4, 2013 (UTC)

And he dosn't look so sad. --Kasan94 18:45, November 6, 2013 (UTC)
There is no consensus on this change, so please don't make an arbitrary decision to change things. If nobody replies to your message, simply bump it and ask again. If there is still no reply, then people don't see any reason to change the image. Frankly, I prefer the current image over your one because the current one shows his proper mood (which is indeed sad, most of the time) --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | Channel 15:49, November 10, 2013 (UTC)

part 2 image Edit

What do you think about this image for Gaara's infobox? It is more recent, and it is the way he currently looks,besides that, his kanji is more visible. I'm new to this wiki (hence the hopeful wish to do some changes on it) so I hope I posted everything in order. :) Vojkffy (talk) 20:16, March 16, 2014 (UTC)

Don't add messages in the middle of other discussions that have long died. Moved your request to the bottom for easier viewing. --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | Channel 20:18, March 16, 2014 (UTC)

I don't see why it's necessary to change. There is no significant difference in Gaara between the two images. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 22:42, March 16, 2014 (UTC)

Gaara's sand manipulationEdit

His sand manipulation should be listed as a unique trait on his infobox, he retained this ability after having Shakaku removed. Shakaku has it listed as one so should Gaara. (Kuroiraikou (talk) 13:25, April 13, 2014 (UTC))

This.--Elveonora (talk) 13:37, April 13, 2014 (UTC)
Also listing produce ink on Killer B unique trait as well.(Kuroiraikou (talk) 15:10, April 13, 2014 (UTC))
Point of clarification, the "unique trait" bit in infoboxes was designed strictly for tailed beasts.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 15:12, April 13, 2014 (UTC)
Really? Then why do human characters use it too?--Elveonora (talk) 15:22, April 13, 2014 (UTC)
I've seen chakra absorption listed on alot of humans infoboxs.(Kuroiraikou (talk) 15:26, April 13, 2014 (UTC))
I said "designed strictly". It was for the tailed beasts and their unique abilities exclusive to that tailed beast and their jinchuriki. If memory serves me correctly I think they were there when the ability section in articles were just a list if techniques and no details.
Quite frankly the section is a relic and could probably be removed as is. It's purpose is now being served within the article proper.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 15:34, April 13, 2014 (UTC)

Magnetism Release Edit

The latests raws prove that Shukaku uses Jiton. Does this not pretty much confirm that Gaara was using Magnetism Release all along? If not through his father's genes (note the eye markings when his father uses Jiton), then surely his ability to manipulate sand was due to Shukaku's ability. As Obito recently demonstrated for us again, bijū skills can remain with a jinchūriki even after extraction.--Reliops (talk) 02:38, April 22, 2014 (UTC)

The eyes were a huge indication that Gaara used Magnet Release, but this proves it completely. Gaara is a Jiton user. Derigar (talk) 14:12, April 22, 2014 (UTC)

Completely possible, and most completely likely. Doubt we will ever know for sure so until then, he does not get listed.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 14:14, April 22, 2014 (UTC)

Gaara a Jinton user? Highly possible, considering both his father and Tailed Beasts had it, but still not confirmed. Sand manipulation = Jinton? Perhaps, but too speculation/not confirmed so nope.--Elveonora (talk) 14:27, April 22, 2014 (UTC)

One could argue this that it's not too speculatory at all. Iron Sand, which uses Magnet Release was said to have been designed off Shukaku. Shukaku using it on its own damn near proves it. But things are never so simple around here.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 14:39, April 22, 2014 (UTC)
Sand isn't magnetic tho.--Elveonora (talk) 14:47, April 22, 2014 (UTC)
And fire isn't black and burns hotter than the sun for a week. Your point?--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 15:01, April 22, 2014 (UTC)
But we can't just assume that sand in Narutoverse is magnetic or that he uses special sand that is. Also Magnet Release is unlikely to be what moves the sand, because Gaara would be able to sustain Kunai and stuff in the air, which he hasn't shown. A Magnet Release which can't manipulate anything but sand is illogical--Elveonora (talk) 15:06, April 22, 2014 (UTC)
When did I say we could assume anything. I said it was probable and likely, and then even stated things are never so simple around here to imply that it wasn't going into the article anyway.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 15:08, April 22, 2014 (UTC)

Cant you just add it and say presumably like on tsunades page? Munchvtec (talk) 15:32, April 22, 2014 (UTC)

No. Tsunade's case is different. Also, how the hell could Gaara's daddy subdue Shukaku with Jiton when Shukaku itself can use Jiton? This makes no sense at all. • Seelentau 愛 15:56, April 22, 2014 (UTC)

Its a very long running anime/manga series. not everything needs to make sense. We can't answer every question asked. Munchvtec (talk) 15:57, April 22, 2014 (UTC)

Tsunade's case was weird before we even began having these types of conversations, mainly because of the difference between electric signals in the nerves, and lightning that does actual lightning things.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 15:59, April 22, 2014 (UTC)
@Seel, basically we are led to believe that Shukaku's Jinton can exclusively manipulate only sand (which isn't even magnetic) somehow ._. 4th Kazekage used Golden Dust which is heavier than sand therefore overpowered Shukaku.--Elveonora (talk) 16:02, April 22, 2014 (UTC)

I don't think tsunade has lightning release but lets stay on the topic= Gaara. Munchvtec (talk) 16:02, April 22, 2014 (UTC)

Jiton doesn't manipulate anything. It changes the Chakra nature to a magnetism nature, nothing else. Sand isn't magnetic so it can't be manipulated with Jiton. Gold is dia-magnetic, at least. But sand? No way. • Seelentau 愛 16:04, April 22, 2014 (UTC)

Kishimoto is screwing with us. Munchvtec (talk) 16:05, April 22, 2014 (UTC)

@Seel, then suppose Shukaku was just dumb enough not to defend himself with his own Jinton against Kazekage's Golden Dust. Otherwise Kishi doesn't know that sand ain't magnetic or he just doesn't care, because (sarcasm) it's completely logical for magnetic chakra to magnetize ONLY sand, magnetic or not.--Elveonora (talk) 16:08, April 22, 2014 (UTC)
Kishimoto has all but said plenty of times, he is no scientist. If he was, jamming ones eye into your skull would not all of a sudden make it work.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 16:09, April 22, 2014 (UTC)
That still doesn't explain why would Shukaku's Jinton affect but sand. That's like Katon which burns only paper but people are safe--Elveonora (talk) 16:12, April 22, 2014 (UTC)
Well, in the end, it doesn't even matter, since this is but speculation. If anyone adds Jiton to Gaara's natures, I'll revert it. • Seelentau 愛 16:15, April 22, 2014 (UTC)

I understand where both sides are coming from, but I think instead of having these length discussions about steps to take in doing things… we wait… Clearly Kishimoto intends to explain all of this.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 16:35, April 22, 2014 (UTC)

I think the primary argument here stems from Gaara's eyes. The Fourth Kazekage got the same damn eyes when he used Jiton and Gaara was shown in the very next chapter using his father's Gold Dust along with his own sand. I will not voice my support either way, but c'mon people. Not everything has to have a giant flashing neon-light banner above it to be completely obvious. Very high probability here that its the case. Our best bet, to be sure though, is a new databook. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 16:37, April 22, 2014 (UTC)
I wouldn't take those eye markings necessarily as an indication of Jinton. We were told they are from insomnia in Gaara's case after all, not to mention the shuriken Jinton user has no markings--Elveonora (talk) 16:41, April 22, 2014 (UTC)
Shuriken-jutsu user was from Kirigakure. Could be a different strain of the genetic trait. Works that way in real life too. Gaara's father gained the rings when he began using Magnet Release. As I've said, Gaara also used Gold Dust in the very next chapter, in tandem with his sand. Again, I'm not supporting or denying, I'm just saying: common sense people. Doesn't take much. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 16:59, April 22, 2014 (UTC)
So Jinton usage causes insomnia? (sarcasm)--Elveonora (talk) 17:24, April 22, 2014 (UTC)

@Elveonora. "Magnet Release (磁遁, Jiton; Viz "Magnet Style") is an advanced chakra nature kekkei genkai which allows the user to convert chakra into magnetic forces and magnetise an object." Tell me again, annoyingly, how sand isn't "magnetic". Derigar (talk) 18:12, April 22, 2014 (UTC)

Toroi's Jiton worked completely different from Sunagakure's Jiton. If Yondaime could magnetise stuff like Toroi, he could have simply magnetised a lot of shinobi and impaled them with gold. We need to wait to see how Shukaku's Magnet Release works. We have to see what its effects are. Once we have that clear, we look to see if there are any of Shukaku's or Gaara's sand techniques that have the same effects. If any of the techniques apply, they'll be retroactively called Jiton, much like Sandaime's were when Magnet Release was released, and when Deidara was confirmed a user of Explosion Release. Does that sound like a sensible approach? Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 18:22, April 22, 2014 (UTC)

That is a perfect way to handle it, Omnibender! Derigar (talk) 18:23, April 22, 2014 (UTC)

How can magnetism itself be used in different ways? I get that you can apply it to either shuriken or iron sand, but it stays magnetism, doesn't it? • Seelentau 愛 18:26, April 22, 2014 (UTC)
@Omni We may not even see the Magnet Rasengan's effect, because Madara vanished. If it won't affect him on the missing pages of chapter 674, then we will have to wait for Naruto to use it again, which he may not do--Elveonora (talk) 18:27, April 22, 2014 (UTC)
@Seelentau - Different genetic versions of the same Kekkei Genkai MIGHT result in different effects. The Sand kekkei genkai specialised in large amount, small objects; akin to sand. The Stone kekkei genkai specialised in small amount, large objects; akin to a ninja tools. This is taken from direct observations. Either way, it is confirmed that Shukaku and Gaara's father both have Magnet Release (JITON, not Jinton -_-), so Gaara both got Magnet release from his father (genetically) and his Bijuu (akin to Roshi, or however he's called). Thinking Gaara doesn't have Magnet release is illogical and honestly, just plain dumb. Derigar (talk) 18:43, April 22, 2014 (UTC)
Calling me dumb is... well, the most dumbest thing you could've done. Gaara has no Magnet Release because as logical as your explanations are, it was never ever hinted at. So we don't add Gaara as a MR user. Full stop. • Seelentau 愛 18:49, April 22, 2014 (UTC)
Not to mention even if it were 200% fact that he does, it doesn't necessarily mean it's the Jinton that controls the sand--Elveonora (talk) 19:06, April 22, 2014 (UTC)
Never called you dumb, just that all these major hints that Gaara has jiton are being ignored is dumb in my eyes. Derigar (talk) 23:29, April 23, 2014 (UTC)

"Magnetism Release (Presumed)"? Edit

As we have discussed to quite some lengths, alls signs point towards Gaara being a Magnetism Release user, however, as this has not been explicitly stated, I suggest we add it to his info box with the "(Presumed)" tag next to it.--Reliops (talk) 19:34, July 29, 2014 (UTC)

If Gaara had ever used some jutsu that looked like Magnet Release, I'd agree with you, but for now, well, he didn't.--Mangekyō Sharingan Izuna JOA20 19:38, July 29, 2014 (UTC)

Shukaku's ability to control sand is presumably Magnetism Release though, and since Gaara retained that ability, it would appear that his presumed Magnetism Release is naturally aligned with sand. It's not that far off from his father's gold dust.--Reliops (talk) 19:50, July 29, 2014 (UTC)

In two seconds I searched 'Is Sand Magnetic?', and the answer is no, it isn't. Black sand can be magnetic, due to certain minerals within it, but Gaara's sand definitely isn't black. Also it's called Magnet Release, stop saying Magnetism. --Atrix471 (talk) 19:56, July 29, 2014 (UTC)

Please read this and tell me what you think: <no links> If you don't feel like clicking:

"I actually made a thread aaaages ago about this after gaaras dad displayed the same eye rings as gaara. There is two types of magnetism:

1) paramagnetism: is a form of magnetism whereby something is attracted to a source via a magnetic field. This is most similar to toroi's magnetic shuriken.

2) diamagnetism: type of magnetism which repels objects with a magnetic force. Quartz the main component of sand is diamagnetic and hence why gaara can manipulate it and make it fly through the air. He is essentially manipulating the magnetic forces that repel the sand off the ground.

Given this info it's most likely a combination of lightning and earth release in that the minerals in the ground or sand are magnetised to form the repulsion field." --Reliops (talk) 20:15, July 29, 2014 (UTC)

It doesn't matter if sand isn't magnetic, pure gold isn't magnetic either but Kishimoto has someone using Magnet Release with it. If he wants Gaara to be a magnet release user then he'll tell us so eventually. We cannot presume until then. Because that would mean that Temaru and Kankurō are using Magnet Release presumably with their abilities as well. That's the problem with "presuming" in Gaara's case.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 20:21, July 29, 2014 (UTC)

We presume a lot of things on this wiki. We presumed Orochimaru had Mokuton because that made sense. We presumed Tsunade has lightning release because that makes sense. We presumed Hamura had Yin Release because that makes sense. With Gaara, there is arguably more cause to believe that he possesses Magnetism Release. And I don't know Temari and Kankurō would be of any concern as Temari only uses wind and we know puppets work with chakra strings, i.e. their styles don't resemble that of Gaara and their father at all. Nor do they have the eye rings.--Reliops (talk) 20:49, July 29, 2014 (UTC)

Regardless of whether sand manipulation is Magnet, it's inconsistent. We list Orochimaru because he has the genetic potential to use Wood Release, but not Gaara who has the potential to use Magnet Release through Shukaku. We should either list both or neither, depending on whether natures are listed for potential use or actual demonstrated capabilities.--BeyondRed (talk) 21:51, July 29, 2014 (UTC)
I have to agree with BeyondRed here. We list Orochimaru for being presumably being able to use Wood Style, just because his host body is a White Zetsu. Gaara should be updated for the exact same reason. --SuperSajuuk Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | Channel 21:59, July 29, 2014 (UTC)

I'm just going to say this and leave the discussion: If Gaara could use Magnet Release he would have no viable reason to ignore the other abilities granted by the nature. Remember when he used a sand clone to block shuriken in the chūnin exams? If he possessed Magnet Release he could have easily just stopped it in the air, but he didn't, which in my opinion is evidence that he doesn't possess the nature. --Atrix471 (talk) 22:02, July 29, 2014 (UTC)

Just because he have it, don't mean he fully knows how to use it. And as stated above, there is a possibility there more than one type of Magnet release (Toroi / Fourth Kazekage). If Orochimaru is stated as having Wood Release because his body is a White Zetsu clone, then Gaara should also have Magnet Release, since he was the jinjuricki of Shukaku, and could manipulate sand. --Kasan94 Nara Symbol Talkpage 22:42, July 29, 2014 (UTC)
If he had diamagnetism, he should be able to manipulate gold dust too... which he can't. Also if you read the Gold Dust article, the trivia section states it doesn't actually function by diamagnetism anyway, so the Fourth Kazekage is the same as any other Magnet Release user. Edit: We also know that not all Bijū inherently pass abilities down to their jinchūriki, as Naruto only received Kurama's 'Negative Emotions Sensing' after defeating it within the seal. --Atrix471 (talk) 22:52, July 29, 2014 (UTC)

I still don't see how the sand manipulation has anything to do with Magnet Release. The closest thing connecting the two is Naruto's Magnet Release technique, and even that doesn't quite look like sand. Nothing Gaara has ever done resembles all known variants of Magnet Release. I'm not saying that Gaara doesn't have Magnet Release, but with what we have, this isn't the same as the Orochimaru and Tsunade examples. I'm still against listing Hamura as a Yin Release user, but I find it harder to care each day. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 23:54, July 29, 2014 (UTC)

Gaara has also manipulated gold dust. Don't forget that. He was able to manipulate his sand and gold dust at the same time, at that. The rings around the Fourth's eyes were obviously meant by Kishi to give us closure to the source behind Gaara's mysterious rings. They were never stated in the series to be related to insomnia, and originally were speculated to be a result of being Shukaku's jinchūriki, just like Naruto's whiskers. We now know that to be wrong. Seeing as Shukaku has Magnet Release, Gaara's markings were likely permenant, because, unlike the Kazekage, who could freely mold Magnet chakra whenever he wanted, a jinchūriki's chakra is always in contact with a tailed beasts, and so the markings simply stuck. ~ Ten Tailed Fox 20px 23:58, July 29, 2014 (UTC)
I seem to recall the only thing Gaara did was to mix the gold dust into his own sand and then use it through that arbitrary method; he never directly manipulated the gold dust. --Atrix471 (talk) 00:01, July 30, 2014 (UTC)
That is directly manipulating Gold Dust. Gaara already stated in the chapter that the Gold Dust was heavier than his own sand, but that he could move it, and then mixed it with his own to create a combined attack. ~ Ten Tailed Fox 20px 00:06, July 30, 2014 (UTC)

What TTF said. And if we're going to allow presumptions based on potential for Orochimaru, then surely Gaara more than qualifies? Shukaku has Magnetism Release and manipulates sand. Gaara's father has the same eyes he does and uses the same fighting style with gold dust - gold dust Gaara mixed with his sand. All points clearly point to Magnetism Release. Enough so warrant a (Presumed) tag.--Reliops (talk) 00:28, July 30, 2014 (UTC)

Whatever, this topic was discussed before and you were shot down. I still stick to the prior judgement. --Atrix471 (talk) 00:45, July 30, 2014 (UTC)

First of all, Gaara moved the gold sand with his own sand, not with chakra. Second, when Shukaku aided Naruto, he didn't give him sand, but the Rasengan was still prefixed Magnet Release. The only thing that was new were the sealing markings, so I think Magnet Release has some sort of connection with fuinjutsu. Anyway, for now, we don't add Gaara as a user. • Seelentau 愛 09:58, July 30, 2014 (UTC)

Gaara moved the gold dust by mixing it with his own sand. He also manipulated hail like that, but I don't see anyone saying he should be listed as an Ice Release user because of that. He essentially scooped up the gold dust with his own sand, that's not a direct manipulation. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 16:15, July 30, 2014 (UTC)

Also thing of note is that Naruto's Shukaku Magnet Release's powered Rasengan enveloped Madara's limbo clone. That means the chakra stuck to him like magnet, meaning Shukaku's Magnet Release is likely the same principle as Toroi's, no sand manipulation BS.--Elveonora (talk) 16:29, July 30, 2014 (UTC)
Finally, some common sense in this thread. --Atrix471 (talk) 17:26, July 30, 2014 (UTC)

Let's get disingenuous to prove a point. Gaara said he mixed the gold dust with his sand, he didn't say he manipulated it with chakra, but he didn't say he was carrying it either. I believe the implication is clear. I don't recall when Gaara carried hale, but that's an irrelevant example seeing as there is no Ice Releaser that gains dark rings around his eyes. There are two sources that heavily imply Gaara is a Magnetism Release user, is bijū and his father. Not to be repeat myself like a broken record, but the fact his father gains rings around his eyes identical to Gaara's and has a similar fighting style, and then considering the fact Naruto gained the ability through Shukaku, would lead to the presumption that Gaara's ability does, in fact, stem from Magnetism Release.--Reliops (talk) 20:23, July 31, 2014 (UTC)

And no one disagrees with you on that being a logical deduction. Except it isn't entirely compatible:
  • You attribute the rings around eyes to Shukaku
  • Except Shukaku doesn't gain any rings while manipulating sand, nor did Naruto gain any rings when he used Magnet Release: Rasengan
  • Gaara's father had rings when using Magnet, wasn't jinchuuriki of Shukaku
  • Therefore the Magnet rings and Shukaku are unrelated
  • Other Magnet Release users like Toroi and (presumably) 3rd Kazekage had no Magnet rings around eyes
  • So Gaara's rings do not necessarily imply a relation to Magnet Release in any way--Elveonora (talk) 20:37, July 31, 2014 (UTC)
Gaara's marks are permanent. His father's appear when using Magnet Release ONLY. This gives two outcomes: either Gaara is constantly using Magnet Release, or it's a arbitrary birth mark (like Naruto's whisker marks, for example). Since constant chakra usage would kill him, due to the inevitable outcome of chakra exhaustion, this argument is pointless. --Atrix471 (talk) 20:40, July 31, 2014 (UTC)
Yes because Gaara's father having those markings is just a coincidence spurred by Kishimoto's whim. Sometimes I wonder if a few of you even read other literature. There are certain things that you really just have you use your brains with. Do any of you really, honestly, believe that Kishimoto gave Gaara's father, a Magnet Release user, and Gaara (the Kazekage's son), whom has a tailed beast with Magnet Release, the same markings for completely different reasons? I just cannot fathom the kind of logic used to reach a conclusion that ignorant of how context clues work. It is absolutely unbelievable. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Rinnegan Sasuke 20:47, July 31, 2014 (UTC)
When Gaara is canonically proven to have Magnet Release you can be snarky all you like. Until then, save me the lecture please. This is a discussion that's come up multiple times for a reason, and that reason is simple: it hasn't been approved. Guess why that is? I'll give you a hint, it's to do with the utter lack of evidence in it's favor. Conjecture will get you nowhere, so cool the attitude. --Atrix471 (talk) 20:56, July 31, 2014 (UTC)

@Foxie, yeah, because a guy who misinterprets canon's context is the first one a person would go after to ask for context clues.--Elveonora (talk) 20:58, July 31, 2014 (UTC)

So, in other words, when Kishi gives you a giant neon banner that tells you everything you were supposed to learn with context clues (this is 1st grade level reading comprehension, how's that for snark?), you'll accept what everyone else already knows? Brilliant. Some encyclopedia this is when that is the mentality. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Rinnegan Sasuke 20:59, July 31, 2014 (UTC)
While I am one who loves context clues as much as the next guy, Shukaku's Magnet Release has yet to look like sand. When it hit Madara, the cursed seal spread across his body and no sand, unless I missed it terribly. As such, despite it being likely in conjunction with the Second and Third Kazekage, we cannot say that Shukaku's sand is moved with Magnet Release.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 21:08, July 31, 2014 (UTC)
Eye shadow, Bijū (that he doesn't even possess anymore) and familial ties are not, on their own, sufficient evidence to add an advanced chakra nature to his skill set. Kishi has never been subtle with his Kekkei Genkai. Darui revealed his, with the name clearly stated, in the first fight he fought. Sasuke did the same for Blaze Release, as did Sasori with the third Kazekage's. I have plenty of examples, so going entirely on previous information, I believe that if Gaara had Magnet Release, it would have been beaten into our heads. Oh, and I noticed you said you 'sense this discussion getting out of hand', which is pretty ironic given your intentional attitude here. That is the last I'll say on this matter, since I tire of this argument which is obviously getting nowhere. Hell, I really don't care anymore, add Magnet Release in if it helps your ego. --Atrix471 (talk) 21:31, July 31, 2014 (UTC)

Perhaps it's a mascara. You know, like those young cute emo guys tend to wear.--Elveonora (talk) 21:36, July 31, 2014 (UTC)
