The Water Release: Water Dragon Bullet 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.
When written as "水流", suiryū means "water current".
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. Later appearances of this technique, however, have implied that the exact number of seals required isn't fixed.
