The '''Wind Release: Rasenshuriken''' was created by [[Naruto Uzumaki]] after he mastered the [[Wind Release: Rasengan]].
+
The '''Wind Release: Rasenshuriken''' is a [[shuriken]]-shaped variant of the [[Wind Release: Rasengan]].
   
 
== Overview ==
 
== Overview ==
By manipulating the [[wind]]-natured [[chakra]] of the Wind Release: Rasengan, Naruto was able to create four large points, causing the [[Rasengan]] to take on the appearance of a giant [[fūma shuriken]], with the Rasengan in the centre remaining a perfect sphere. The technique gives off a loud bell-like screech after being formed. In order to perform it, Naruto requires the aid of two [[shadow clone]]s; he provides the chakra, one clone is responsible for the [[shape transformation]], and the other provides the [[nature transformation]].
+
The Rasenshuriken was invented by [[Naruto Uzumaki]] shortly after he figured out the principles of the [[Wind Release: Rasengan]]. Like that technique, Naruto typically has the help of two [[shadow clone]]s in the Rasenshuriken's formation: he provides the chakra, one clone helps keep the chakra contained, and the second clone adds his [[wind]]-[[nature]]. Unlike the Wind Release: Rasengan, additional [[shape transformation]] is applied to the Rasenshuriken, creating four large points around the central [[Rasengan]]-core, giving the appearance of a [[fūma shuriken]]. By the time of ''[[The Last: Naruto the Movie]]'', Naruto is able to create Rasenshuriken without aid.
   
[[File:Severing Chakra Cells2.PNG|thumb|left|200px|The Rasenshuriken's effect.]]
+
Rasenshuriken require a great deal of chakra to perform: Naruto has been shown creating as many as three Rasenshuriken on his own before tiring out.<ref>Chapter 614, pages 9-10</ref> While in [[Sage Mode]], he can create two Rasenshuriken per transformation; after the second, he must re-enter Sage Mode in order to be able create additional Rasenshuriken.<ref>Chapter 433</ref> Once formed, the Rasenshuriken gives off a loud screeching noise. Its four points are very sharp, enough to cut through rock<ref>Chapter 442, page 8</ref> and disintegrate most of [[Pain]]'s [[Human Path]].<ref name="c432">Chapter 432</ref>
The Rasenshuriken creates countless microscopic wind-blades that damage the body on a cellular level. It produces so many individual strikes that even [[Kakashi Hatake]] is unable to count them all with his [[Sharingan]].<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 341, page 18</ref> The wind blades sever nerve channels in the body, leaving the target unable to move after being struck. They also attack the [[chakra circulatory system]], which cannot be repaired by any form of medical ninjutsu. Depending on the severity of the damage, the victim may not be able to perform a technique ever again. Because the Rasenshuriken does cellular damage to Naruto's arm when he first uses the technique without throwing it, Tsunade labelled it a [[kinjutsu]] and likens the technique's effects to poison.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 346, pages 10-14</ref>

When Naruto first uses the Rasenshuriken against [[Kakuzu]], the latter is caught in a vortex of wind blades. Other than the damage done to his cells, Kakuzu's body is left intact after being struck. After Naruto learns to throw the Rasenshuriken, the damage is greatly increased; not only is it capable of cutting through rocky mountains,<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 442, page 8</ref> but when [[Pain]]'s [[Human Path (character)|Human Path]] is struck by it, most of its body is disintegrated, leaving only the top of its head.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 434, page 15</ref> Even though it can now be thrown, it can still be thrust into the opponent.
+
After travelling a certain distance or colliding with a target that it can't slice through, the central sphere of the Rasenshuriken detonates, producing a vortex of wind in the immediate area. Within this vortex are created countless microscopic wind-blades, so many that even the [[Sharingan]] can't count them all.<ref>Chapter 341, page 18</ref> The wind blades damage anything within the vortex on a cellular level, attacking the [[chakra circulatory system]] to such a degree that no amount of [[medical ninjutsu]] can heal it. Tsunade likens the damage to poison, and warns that if the damage is great enough, those effected by it won't be able to use [[jutsu]] again.<ref name="c346">Chapter 346, pages 10-14</ref>

== Development ==
[[File:Rasen Expansion.PNG|thumb|left|A thrown, expanded Rasenshuriken.]]
+
[[File:Severing Chakra Cells2.PNG|thumb|The side effect from using the technique at close range.]]
Naruto later perfects the Rasenshuriken with [[Sage Mode]]. This allows him to throw it at his opponents, and removes the threat of damaging himself with the technique. Another improvement is that the ''shuriken'' now expands after it has been thrown, compensating for imprecise aim or fleeing opponents by widening the area of effect. However, he can throw the Rasenshuriken quickly enough that this is rarely necessary. When thrown, the Rasenshuriken becomes Naruto's quickest and strongest attack,<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 551, pages 12-14</ref> able to cross an entire [[Chibaku Tensei]] crater which was roughly the size of a small mountain range in a single second. When it exploded, it took up a large part of that same area.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 442, pages 5-8</ref>
+
When Naruto first starts using the Rasenshuriken there are two flaws in its usage: it is prone to sporadically dissipating after being formed. In order to keep it stable, Naruto must use it as a melee weapon, thrusting the Rasenshuriken into targets in the same way that he does the standard Rasengan.<ref>Chapter 340</ref> This in turn causes the cellular damage his targets receive to also be inflicted on whichever arm Naruto holds the Rasenshuriken with, though his arm isn't damaged quite as extensively. Nevertheless, it poses enough of a risk to him that it is classified as [[kinjutsu]].<ref name="c346"/>
   
[[File:Third Raikage vs Naruto.png|thumb|Naruto manipulating the direction of the Rasenshuriken.]]
+
[[File:Rasen Expansion.PNG|thumb|left|Rasenshuriken's expansion.]]
Naruto can also create and throw this technique in [[Nine-Tails Chakra Mode]]; in this form, he can use the extra [[chakra arms]] in place of Shadow Clones to create the Rasenshuriken. He can also form a [[Mini-Rasenshuriken|smaller version]] of it, developed during his training with [[Killer B]]. Using his chakra arms, he can guide the Rasenshuriken towards the enemy, allowing him to redirect it back at them, should the initial attack fail.
+
Naruto is able to overcome these flaws by learning [[senjutsu]]. By coating the Rasenshuriken in senjutsu-chakra, its shape is maintained after formation, meaning that he can use it as a projectile and, as a result, that he no longer needs to worry about damaging himself. When thrown, the Rasenshuriken travels very quickly, enough to cross the crater of [[Chibaku Tensei]] in under a second.<ref>Chapter 442, pages 5-8</ref> Once thrown, Naruto can remotely expand the Rasenshuriken to either compensate for imprecise aim or to catch dodging targets,<ref name="c432"/> though its speed is great enough that this is rarely necessary. He enjoys similar benefits while using [[Nine-Tails Chakra Mode]], where he can use his [[chakra arm]]s to guide the Rasenshuriken to its target while he remains at a safe distance.<ref>Chapter 554</ref> Moreover, he can use these chakra arms in place of the usual shadow clones.<ref>Chapter 617, pages 11-12</ref>

=== Drawbacks ===
+
[[File:SageArtSTBR.png|thumb|Several Rasenshuriken influenced by Naruto's tailed beast chakra.]]
The Rasenshuriken requires a great deal of chakra to perform, and after creating it three times, using his own chakra, left Naruto extremely fatigued. However, it requires a good deal more chakra to both create and then throw it, which, while in Sage Mode, can be used twice in addition to other Rasengan variants. This indicates that a thrown Rasenshuriken takes up approximately half his sage chakra. He must then re-enter Sage Mode before using the technique again.
+
Naruto eventually starts making the Rasenshuriken a template for other jutsu, just as he does with the regular Rasengan. Like the Rasengan, some of the simpler modifications he makes to the Rasenshuriken are by using [[Wind Release: Repeated Rasenshuriken|multiple simultaneously]] or making them [[Big Ball Rasenshuriken|larger]] (or even [[Mini-Rasenshuriken|smaller]]). In place of the Rasengan he uses for the centre of the Rasenshuriken, he can use [[Tailed Beast Ball]]s or [[Truth-Seeking Ball]]s that will create significantly larger explosions upon detonation. He can also apply other natures to the Rasenshuriken, as he does with the [[Super Tailed Beast Rasenshuriken]].
 
In addition to having the Rasenshuriken damage his arm, Naruto had difficulty maintaining the Rasenshuriken's stability when he first used it. It was prone to dissipating before Naruto could reach his target, requiring that he use it as a melee weapon and force it into the opponent, just as he does with the usual Rasengan.

The Wind Release: Rasenshuriken is a shuriken-shaped variant of the Wind Release: Rasengan.

Overview Edit

The Rasenshuriken was invented by Naruto Uzumaki shortly after he figured out the principles of the Wind Release: Rasengan. Like that technique, Naruto typically has the help of two shadow clones in the Rasenshuriken's formation: he provides the chakra, one clone helps keep the chakra contained, and the second clone adds his wind-nature. Unlike the Wind Release: Rasengan, additional shape transformation is applied to the Rasenshuriken, creating four large points around the central Rasengan-core, giving the appearance of a fūma shuriken. By the time of The Last: Naruto the Movie, Naruto is able to create Rasenshuriken without aid.

Rasenshuriken require a great deal of chakra to perform: Naruto has been shown creating as many as three Rasenshuriken on his own before tiring out.[3] While in Sage Mode, he can create two Rasenshuriken per transformation; after the second, he must re-enter Sage Mode in order to be able create additional Rasenshuriken.[4] Once formed, the Rasenshuriken gives off a loud screeching noise. Its four points are very sharp, enough to cut through rock[5] and disintegrate most of Pain's Human Path.[6]

Blast

Rasenshuriken's wind vortex.

After travelling a certain distance or colliding with a target that it can't slice through, the central sphere of the Rasenshuriken detonates, producing a vortex of wind in the immediate area. Within this vortex are created countless microscopic wind-blades, so many that even the Sharingan can't count them all.[7] The wind blades damage anything within the vortex on a cellular level, attacking the chakra circulatory system to such a degree that no amount of medical ninjutsu can heal it. Tsunade likens the damage to poison, and warns that if the damage is great enough, those effected by it won't be able to use jutsu again.[8]

Development Edit

Severing Chakra Cells2

The side effect from using the technique at close range.

When Naruto first starts using the Rasenshuriken there are two flaws in its usage: it is prone to sporadically dissipating after being formed. In order to keep it stable, Naruto must use it as a melee weapon, thrusting the Rasenshuriken into targets in the same way that he does the standard Rasengan.[9] This in turn causes the cellular damage his targets receive to also be inflicted on whichever arm Naruto holds the Rasenshuriken with, though his arm isn't damaged quite as extensively. Nevertheless, it poses enough of a risk to him that it is classified as kinjutsu.[8]

Rasen Expansion

Rasenshuriken's expansion.

Naruto is able to overcome these flaws by learning senjutsu. By coating the Rasenshuriken in senjutsu-chakra, its shape is maintained after formation, meaning that he can use it as a projectile and, as a result, that he no longer needs to worry about damaging himself. When thrown, the Rasenshuriken travels very quickly, enough to cross the crater of Chibaku Tensei in under a second.[10] Once thrown, Naruto can remotely expand the Rasenshuriken to either compensate for imprecise aim or to catch dodging targets,[6] though its speed is great enough that this is rarely necessary. He enjoys similar benefits while using Nine-Tails Chakra Mode, where he can use his chakra arms to guide the Rasenshuriken to its target while he remains at a safe distance.[11] Moreover, he can use these chakra arms in place of the usual shadow clones.[12]

SageArtSTBR

Several Rasenshuriken influenced by Naruto's tailed beast chakra.

Naruto eventually starts making the Rasenshuriken a template for other jutsu, just as he does with the regular Rasengan. Like the Rasengan, some of the simpler modifications he makes to the Rasenshuriken are by using multiple simultaneously or making them larger (or even smaller). In place of the Rasengan he uses for the centre of the Rasenshuriken, he can use Tailed Beast Balls or Truth-Seeking Balls that will create significantly larger explosions upon detonation. He can also apply other natures to the Rasenshuriken, as he does with the Super Tailed Beast Rasenshuriken.

Trivia Edit

  • Though the technique debuted in chapter 339, Naruto used it off-panel six chapters earlier.
  • Like the Rasengan, the Rasenshuriken's colour is depicted inconsistently in the series because Masashi Kishimoto has yet to decide upon a colour for the technique.[13] It is most often depicted as being a bluish-white, but different promotional and supplementary material have also shown it as red or orange with no obvious pattern.
  • In Naruto Shippūden the Movie: The Will of Fire, Hiruko tries to absorb this technique, but was unable to combine the peak-levels of shape and nature transformation, like Naruto did at first. The sphere begins forming in his hand, but it becomes unstable and disperses, backfiring on him.
  • When the senjutsu version of this technique is thrown in Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 and its sequels, the Rasenshuriken hits the target and carries them into the air before exploding. This version is referred to as the True Wind Release: Rasenshuriken (真風遁・螺旋手裏剣, Shin Fūton: Rasenshuriken).
