Users

After performing the required hand seals, the user creates a gigantic wooden dragon from the ground directly beneath them, which can then be directed to attack an intended target. Its shape closely resembles a Chinese dragon, though with a short trunk-like nose, having an elongated and serpentine body that is longer than Naruto Uzumaki's Tailed Beast Mode, which can be used to constrict larger opponents. It also has the ability to absorb a tailed beast's chakra once it is bound. As a Wood Release technique, it reacts to Naruto's Tailed Beast Mode, sprouting trees along its length.[1]

According to Madara Uchiha, Hashirama Senju used this technique to restrain Kurama in the past.[2]

Influence

The dragon created by this technique resembles a creature predominantly seen in Hindu mythology known as the Makara. Over time, the myth surrounding this creature has spread throughout most of Asia, and in Chinese renditions of the creature it most resembles this one: a dragon with an elephant's trunk.
