After creating a small Rasengan, Boruto subconsciously adds Wind Release to it, before throwing it. As it glides, the nature transformation abruptly kicks in, resulting in the technique disappearing from sight. This adds an element of surprise to the attack, as an opponent may lower their guard, assuming that the technique has dispersed, only to find themselves struck with by the invisible attack.
The size of Boruto's Vanishing Rasengan has seen a significant increase after the Mujina Bandits Arc, where it was shown to be around the size of a regular Rasengan.
In the novelisation of Boruto: Naruto the Movie, the Parent and Child Rasengan of Boruto and Naruto retained the vanishing effect of this technique.
In the anime, Naruto was able to throw a standard Rasengan, similar to the main function of this technique.
In various media, when Boruto uses this technique, he calls it "Rasengan".
