Wouldn't it be better if the image show Rashōmon moment afer it was summoned (before it was hitted by Kiba and Akamaru)?--LeafShinobi (talk) 11:40, February 3, 2011 (UTC)

There doesn't appear to be an anime version of that. There's this, but all of the dirt makes the current dented version better. ~SnapperTo 17:52, February 3, 2011 (UTC)
OK, thanks.--LeafShinobi (talk) 15:30, February 4, 2011 (UTC)


It cant be true that Orochimaru developed this technique because Hashirama summoned five Rashōmon gates in his battle against Madara. This fact should be included in the trivia section.-- (talk) 21:10, February 20, 2013 (UTC)

The article has been revised to reflect that. One version translated it as being Orochimaru's creation, however, another said it was simply his ultimate defence. The databook entry also does not credit Orochimaru as its creator, but its user.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 10:27, February 21, 2013 (UTC)


Ok, so i've noticed, no one ever adressed this...but shouldn't this be marked as a barrier technique as well? Barrier ninjutsu can be used for both entrapment and deffensive purposes, and the Rashomon can clearly be counted as the latter, since it pretty creates a wall/gate to block incoming attacks.

Yes and no 0_0 since Sealing Technique: Octopus Hold counts as a fuuinjutsu... while it doesn't seal anything, but immobilizes, complicated stuff--Elveonora (talk) 23:34, June 22, 2013 (UTC)
Actually it seals the target, at least by the series definition which seems to view sealing and immobilizing as pretty much the same...barriers have deffensive uses...pretty much raising deffensive walls for protection...why should this be different? Darksusanoo (talk) 23:49, June 22, 2013 (UTC)
If we hadn't been told Octopus Hold was a sealing technique, I don't think we would have listed it as such. I don't know. If every technique which creates a wall counted as barrier ninjutsu, we'd have quite some Earth Release barriers. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 00:02, June 23, 2013 (UTC)

Alpha beta

in the manga when sakon and ukon use this jutsu they call it the Alpha omega Summon, should this be added somewhere?Munchvtec (talk) 13:59, December 2, 2013 (UTC)munchvtec

In the manga they said alpha and beta before summoning the gate. Alpha Beta Summoning isn't a name.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 15:56, December 2, 2013 (UTC)
could i add in trivia that they say this before summoning the rashomon. Munchvtec (talk) 13:47, December 3, 2013 (UTC)munchvtec
