Does this even exist as a technique?

I see through the history of this page that it was created based on a YouTube video. However, I watched the video, and the phrase "Gold Dust Storm" didn't appear once, unless it was mentioned (was it?). However, if it was mentioned, then it shouldn't be unnamed.

But if it was never even mentioned, then this article should either be a redirect or deleted altogether, because in that case, "Gold Dust Storm" doesn't exist. Unless there is a name, then this is just an application of Gold Dust (probably should be redirected there then).

My issue with the technique possibly being unnamed is that if so, there is literally no difference between this and seeing a character, for instance Gaara, in a video game and naming a mere combo move (out of a multitude of combo moves) he uses "Sand Thrust" or something because that's what it looks like to the user and creating an article about it. So just curious... is this an unnamed technique or is the name mentioned anywhere in the video? WindStar7125 Divine Mangekyō Sharingan VolteMetalic 07:45, April 23, 2015 (UTC)

For some reason, certain people don't want it to be deleted. It should be though.--Omojuze (talk) 07:57, April 23, 2015 (UTC)

If I'm not mistaken, the case for this technique is as follows. When the technique was created, it was done so when Rasa was just an enemy in UNS3. His technique was then named after one of Gaara's video game jutsu, this one would be the gold dust clone of that. In UNSR, with Rasa being a playable character, his moves got proper names. Many of Rasa's combos in UNSR actually debuted in UNS3. It's just a matter of finding which is which and giving them their proper, UNSR revealed names.

So it's just a gold dust clone of one of Gaara's techniques? That just gives more reason for it to be deleted or redirected to Gold Dust, because it's just gold dust manipulation, and it is still an unnamed video game technique.

While still a gold dust clone of one of Gaara's techniques, it would still be its own named combo as of UNSR. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 01:55, April 27, 2015 (UTC)
So it is a named technique? Or not? WindStar7125 Divine Mangekyō Sharingan VolteMetalic 02:04, April 27, 2015 (UTC)
It is. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 21:15, April 27, 2015 (UTC)
Alright then. WindStar7125 Divine Mangekyō Sharingan VolteMetalic 00:53, April 28, 2015 (UTC)
Omni, it wasn't named. None of the Edo Kage combos are named in that game. I don't understand where are you getting this from.--Omojuze (talk) 04:30, April 28, 2015 (UTC)
The technique debuted as a nameless combo in UNS3. When Rasa became a playable character with a full moveset in UNSR, this became one of his combo. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 13:56, April 28, 2015 (UTC)
Sure, but definitely it wasn't named.--Omojuze (talk) 13:57, April 28, 2015 (UTC)

All combos, from all playable characters in the Ultimate Ninja series are named. It's just that most people and most game sites neglect to list them. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 14:12, April 28, 2015 (UTC)

Playable characters. This technique's origin is the game in which Rasa wasn't playable. And we do have the command list from the game he is playable and there is no technique listed with such a name.--Omojuze (talk) 14:14, April 28, 2015 (UTC)
And unless there's something I don't know, all of Rasa's moves from UNS3 were used in his combos from UNSR. It was indeed created with a placeholder name. The issue is that pretty much every moveset video of Rasa I recall seeing just shows his movements, without showing the combo's name. At most they say, "grab" or "down combo" and the like. If I'm not mistaken, this would be his tilt, and if Gamefaq's combo faq of this game can be trusted, this combo's name is Gold Dust Drizzle, Sakin Shigure.

Gold Dust Drizzle? Okay. Is there any kanji for that? WindStar7125 Divine Mangekyō Sharingan VolteMetalic 22:04, May 3, 2015 (UTC)
Sakin Shigure is actually this one, and not "Gold Dust Storm", albeit the name in the US release was given different. And that one is from the official in-game command list.--Omojuze (talk) 16:06, May 4, 2015 (UTC)
Don't think so. Again, going by gamefaq's faq, the Sakin Shigure is supposed to be the tilt. Going by the description of the jutsu you linked, it begins with Desert Suspension, and in the moveset video I'm seeing, the tilt doesn't use that. The combo that begins like that is the air combo, which in the faq gets named as Sakin Kumoyari: Send Flying. Assuming the "send flying" part of the name is the same as one of Gaara's combos introduced in UNS2, that part of the name is actually "Thrust Away" (突き飛ばし, Tsukitobashi). The "kumoyari" part I have no idea, though that seems to be the name of Gold Dust Cloud Spear. It seems to be that the articles we currently have on Rasa's game combos are actually a bit mixed up. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 18:12, May 4, 2015 (UTC)
It is possible that some of the techniques might be mixed up, as when I created them I had the command list, but the commands weren't on the screen when a move was used, so I tried to pick them out, but, with my limited knowledge of the game, I could've made some mistakes. Then either one of the techniques from the command list matches up with this one, or this one stays unnamed. I looked through some sources but I still don't find from where did you find when was the name stated in S3?--Omojuze (talk) 18:26, May 4, 2015 (UTC)

Other than his jutsu, none of the combos from S3 were named during S3. When SR came along, all his unnamed combos from S3 were polished some more and given names. The resources I'm using to compare those combos are the faq from gamefaqs and the first youtube result for ""fourth kazekage" moveset". There is also the possibility that the faq, while having the correct names, assigned them to the wrong combos. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 18:40, May 4, 2015 (UTC)
