Quick note, there is a bug stopping me from undeleting the rest of the history. This is just a reminder note that I need to undelete the revisions when it's possible. ~NOTASTAFF Daniel Friesen (DanTMan, Nadir Seen Fire) (talk) current discussion May 16, 2008 @ 08:43 (UTC)
Shouldn't it be added that early translations of this jutsu call it thousand years of pain? -RobonUzumaki
- That was people who translated this wrong. And it's already mentioned in the trivia section. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 20:39, May 12, 2013 (UTC)
I have always understood this technique to involve a needle. Many times when it is used, you see a metallic twinkle at the tip of Kakashi's fingers. I am pretty sure what is happening here is that Kakashi is gripping a needle and piercing it between the enemy's butt cheeks.
This would explain why it is so 'effective' and why it pains the victim so. It would also explain the translation of 'thousand years of pain', whereas 'thousand years of death' doesn't really mean anything in relation to the jutsu.
This ALSO explains Naruto using a kunai in his version - bigger butt, bigger needle.
