Users

After forming the required hand seals, the user creates a large statue-like creature out of wood, which is strong enough to catch an uncompressed Tailed Beast Ball fired by the Nine-Tails.

Influence

This technique seems to be based upon Ryūtōki (竜燈鬼, Dragon-Lamp Demon), a creature from Japanese folklore, who is typically depicted as a small oni with a dragon coiled around its torso. Together with Tentōki (天燈鬼, Heavenly-Lamp Demon), the pair symbolise the power of the Shitennō to repel and defeat evil.

The Buddhist monk Kōben sculpted notable wooden statues of both Tentōki and Ryūtōki, which are each considered a National Treasure of Japan.
