The user creates a gigantic wooden dragon, which is then 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, which can be used to constrict larger opponents. It also has the ability to absorb chakra from its target.[2][3]


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.


  • Hashirama once used this technique to bind the Nine-Tails in his fight against Madara.[4][5]
  • Hashirama noted that the chakra absorption feature of this technique negates the Chakra Absorption Techniques of a bound target.[6]
  • When the Wood Release: Wood Human Technique was used, this dragon encircles the creature's torso.
  • In certain parts of Japanese mythology dragons are considered deities with power over wood, forests, and water, likely a reference to Hashirama's Wood Release.
