Hand seals Technique specific seal

After performing the required hand seals, the user creates a number of gigantic wooden hands that erupt upward from beneath the ground, which encircle and then attempt to restrain a chosen enemy. The size of each of these hands is around the size of a tailed beast.


This technique seems to be influenced by Budai (布袋, Budai), also known as Hotei in Japanese. He is almost always shown smiling or laughing, hence his nickname: the Laughing Buddha. In Japan, Hotei persists in folklore as one of the Seven Lucky Gods of Taoism.
