The user gathers a large amount of water and shapes it into a giant dragon before launching it at the target. While the technique can be performed by using a nearby water source as a medium, if the user is skilled enough, it can performed without one. 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.[2][3][4]
  • In Naruto Shippūden the Movie, when Shizuku was under the influence of medically altered chakra, she was able to control the water dragon to seek out her targets from a great distance.
