A highly versatile technique whereby the user converts part of their body into wooden branches, which can then be made to grow at astounding speeds and with such force, that they can pierce a person's body with ease. Used predominantly in close-ranged combat,[1] these branches can also be made to exponentially multiply, even when inside a victim. Due to these properties, the technique can be used to fashion short-range weapons akin to a makeshift sword,[2] or else vaulted towards opponents as long-range projectiles, where the branches growth can be triggered remotely by performing the ram seal, skewering the enemy.[3] It can also apparently be used on an even larger scale, creating giant branches that can be made to envelop and then crush an opponent between them.[4]

Obito later used this technique via the Ten-Tails' chakra arm,[5] after using their Senju DNA to strengthen the connection.[6]


  • Cutting, also called striking or cloning, is a method of plant propagation. It involves cutting off a piece of a plant, usually the stem or root, which is then put in an appropriate medium. If done properly, the cut piece will grow into a new plant, genetically identical to the plant it was cut from.
