This technique shapes a large amount of water into a giant, powerful dragon, which hits the opponent with formidable might, dealing physical damage. The ideal place to use it is near a body of water, but if the user's skill allows it, it is possible to use it even in a place where there is none. The amount of water used will be in proportion with the user's skill.
- During this technique's first appearance, forty-four hand seals were used to perform it; the highest amount of hand seals necessary to use a technique shown in the series so far. However, later appearances of the technique have implied that the exact number of seals required isn't fixed. In fact, Tobirama Senju was able to use it with only one hand seal.
- In Naruto: Shippūden the Movie, when the technique is used by Shizuku, who was under the influence of medically altered chakra, she has shown the capability to control a very large dragon to seek out her targets from a great distance.
- When written as "水流", suiryū means "water current".
