The White Secret Technique: The Chikamatsu Collection of Ten Puppets is a ninjutsu which was invented by Monzaemon Chikamatsu.


After unravelling the carrying scroll, the Chikamatsu Collection appears from the gate (, mon) crest. Using the Puppet Technique to manipulate them at will is what is known as the "an amount matching ones fingers" (指に数, Yubi ni sū) method. With this puppet collection it is literally possible to use one puppet with each finger — each boasting a power matching a thousand puppets put together. However, to use all of these secret mechanisms demands extremely high-class expertise and skill.

These ten puppets were created by the first puppeteer Monzaemon Chikamatsu and later came into Chiyo's possession, the use of which earned her great fame. These puppets are very powerful, as Sasori claimed that there were rumours that they had been used to take down an entire castle at one point in time.[2] The Chikamatsu Collection has terrifying prowess in taijutsu, ninjutsu, bukijutsu, and so on. Furthermore, as they can change their numbers by combining, the number of abilities they can show becomes even greater. The puppets were constructed in such a way that they all can work in tandem with each other both offensively and defensively.
