[[Hashirama Senju]] was the originator of this ability, evidenced by the fact that no other member of his clan was known to possess it. His ability to use these techniques was one of the reasons for him being given the title of the First [[Hokage]], and with [[Wood Release Secret Technique: Nativity of a World of Trees]] he was able to create the foundation of [[Konohagakure]].<ref>Second Databook, page 279</ref> This technique also allowed him to completely reshape battlefields to his advantage. A highly coveted ability because of the abilities it grants, since then, several persons have tried to replicate his power, and obtained albeit weaker versions of it through experimenting with biological samples.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 297, page 9</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 545, pages 2-4</ref> As [[Obito Uchiha]] noted, Wood Release is very hard to control and because of the sheer life force that Hashirama's cells possess, they can potentially overwhelm any who are infused with the First's DNA. This was seen from [[Danzō Shimura]]'s use after his chakra levels were depleted, and he almost turned into a tree as the cells attempted to take him over.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 480, page 10</ref> It is also noted that persons who integrate these cells into their body gain a replica face in Hashirama's likeness on their body.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 575, page 14</ref>

While being a kekkei genkai, the use of this nature transformation has only been done by [[Hashirama Senju]] and those who possess his exact DNA. His ability to use this technique was one of the reasons he was given the title of the First [[Hokage]], and with [[Wood Release Secret Technique: Nativity of a World of Trees]] he created the foundation of [[Konohagakure]].<ref>Second Databook, page 279</ref> This technique also allowed him to completely reshape battlefields to his advantage.

The first person to attempt to make Hashirama's power his own was his rival, Madara Uchiha. Having used their confrontation at the [[Valley of the End]] to acquire a portion of his DNA, Madara later applied it to the wounds he sustained. As a result, Madara was able to perform Wood Release techniques, which he demonstrated upon his [[Summoning: Impure World Reincarnation|reincarnation]] during the [[Fourth Shinobi World War]].<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 561, pages 11-12</ref> Madara also used Hashirama's cells, along with the [[Demonic Statue of the Outer Path]], to create a [[Hashirama's Living Clone|living clone]] of Hashirama. From this clone, Madara was able to produce various [[White Zetsu Army|artificial humans]], each of which was capable of performing a weaker version of Hashirama's Wood Release.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 545, page 3</ref> After being mortally wounded during his [[Kakashi Gaiden|mission at Kannabi Bridge]], Obito Uchiha was repaired with the genetic material from the living clone by Madara, giving him the ability to use Wood Release as well.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 602, page 13</ref>

A derived technique of the Wood Release is the [[Hokage-Style Sixty-Year-Old Technique Kakuan Entering Society with Bliss-Bringing Hands]]. This technique produces a {{translation|"sit"|座}} seal on the user's right hand that can suppress a [[tailed beast]]'s chakra as well as its influence over its [[jinchūriki]]. Hashirama's [[First Hokage's Necklace|necklace]] aided in this technique's execution, but its exact purpose was unclear. After [[Naruto Uzumaki]] destroyed the necklace, [[Yamato]] implied that he could no longer suppress the [[Nine-Tailed Demon Fox]]'s influence.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 455, page 12</ref> Nevertheless, when Naruto began [[Jinchūriki Forms|transforming]] during his training to control the Nine-Tails at the [[Falls of Truth]], Yamato stated that he would try to suppress the beast,<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 497, page 14</ref> though it is unknown whether this would have been successful due to the transformation stopping through other means. In addition other Wood Release techniques are also capable of binding and suppressing the tailed beasts' power.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 609, page 2</ref>
   
[[Orochimaru]], another who desired the First Hokage's abilities, injected Hashirama's DNA into sixty test subjects, and out of the sixty only [[Yamato]] survived. With his own DNA overridden, Yamato gained the ability to use Wood Release.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 291, pages 15-16</ref> Orochimaru also performed a similar procedure on [[Danzō Shimura]] by implanting the First's cells in his right arm. While Danzō is capable of using this power, it appears Danzō's version is much cruder and causes a much more significant drain of chakra with each usage, causing Danzō to avoid using it as much as possible.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 478, page 10</ref> Orochimaru also kept a sample of Hashirama's DNA and later used it to reincarnate the First Hokage himself to fight for him.

Jutsu

Wood Release (木遁, Mokuton; Viz "Wood Style") is an advanced nature kekkei genkai formed through simultaneously combining earth-based chakra in one hand and water-based chakra in the other.[1] The Wood Release can create wood as well as various plants, from simple seeds to even flowering trees.[2] Wood and plants can be produced from any surface, including the user's own body, as the user's chakra is literally converted into a source of life. Wood Release Techniques (木遁の術, Mokuton no Jutsu) are commonly affiliated with the Snake seal.

Overview Edit

While being a kekkei genkai, the use of this nature transformation has only been done by Hashirama Senju and those who possess his exact DNA. His ability to use this technique was one of the reasons he was given the title of the First Hokage, and with Wood Release Secret Technique: Nativity of a World of Trees he created the foundation of Konohagakure.[3] This technique also allowed him to completely reshape battlefields to his advantage. A highly coveted ability, several people have tried to replicate his power, with a few achieving weaker versions of it through experimentation with Hashirama's cells.[4][5] As Obito Uchiha noted, Wood Release is very hard to control due to the sheer life force within Hashirama's cells, which can potentially overwhelm any who are infused with them. Danzō Shimura demonstrated this when, after his chakra levels were depleted, he almost turned into a tree as the cells overpowered him.[6]

A derived technique of the Wood Release is the Hokage-Style Sixty-Year-Old Technique — Kakuan Entering Society with Bliss-Bringing Hands. This technique produces a "sit" (座) seal on the user's right hand that can suppress a tailed beast's chakra as well as its influence over its jinchūriki. Hashirama's necklace aided in this technique's execution, but its exact purpose was unclear. After Naruto Uzumaki destroyed the necklace, Yamato implied that he could no longer suppress the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox's influence.[7] Nevertheless, when Naruto began transforming during his training to control the Nine-Tails at the Falls of Truth, Yamato stated that he would try to suppress the beast,[8] though it is unknown whether this would have been successful due to the transformation stopping through other means. In addition other Wood Release techniques are also capable of binding and suppressing the tailed beasts' power.[9]

Background Edit

The first person to attempt to make Hashirama's power his own was his rival, Madara Uchiha. Having used their confrontation at the Valley of the End to acquire a portion of Hashirama's flesh, Madara later applied it to the wound he sustained in his chest.[10][11] In addition, Madara used the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path as a catylyst to cultivate Hashirama's cells, resulting in the creation of a flowering tree made up of Hashirama's artificial body. The White Zetsu stored within the Demonic Statue were later pulled out through the tree by Black Zetsu, each gaining the ability to use a weaker version of Hashirama's Wood Release in the process.[12][11] Madara later used Hashirama's artificial body to repair the otherwise fatal wounds sustained by Obito Uchiha during his mission at Kannabi Bridge, giving him the ability to use Wood Release as well.[13] When Madara was later reincarnated in a state beyond his prime by Kabuto Yakushi, he once again gained access to Wood Release.[14]

After Hashirama's passing, Konohagakure once attempted to replicate Wood Release through implanting Hashirama's cells into various shinobi, which consistently ended in failure and the subject's death. Ultimately, the research was ceased and deemed forbidden.[15] Orochimaru, another who desired the First Hokage's abilities, injected Hashirama's DNA into sixty children, with the sole survivor gaining the ability to use Wood Release as a result.[16] Orochimaru also performed a similar procedure on Danzō Shimura by implanting the First's cells into his right arm. While Danzō was capable of using this power, his version appeared cruder and caused a significant drain of chakra with each usage, causing Danzō to avoid using it as much as possible.[17] Orochimaru himself would later acquire this coveted ability after taking over the body of one of White Zetsu's parasite clones.[18][19]

After reviving the Ten-Tails in an incomplete state, Madara and Obito were able to improve their control of the beast through the use of Hashirama's cells.[20] Obito also demonstrated the ability to channel his Wood Release techniques through the Ten-Tails' body while attached to it.[21]

Trivia Edit

  • Wood Release parallels the real-life ninja art "mokuton-no-jutsu". One example of real-life mokuton-no-jutsu is Tanuki-gakure: the practice of climbing a tree and camouflaging oneself within the foliage.
  • Wood Release has had the most users and techniques out of all nature transformation kekkei genkai.
  • In the anime, the Moulding Mushroom appears to drain chakra from Wood Release users.[22]
  • In the anime, Hashirama left behind a scroll detailing his various Wood Release techniques. Danzō later obtained this scroll and gave it to Yamato in the hopes that he would one day refine his Wood Release to Hashirama's level.[23]
  • A replica of Hashirama's face formed on Danzō's right shoulder after Hashirama's cells were integrated into his body.[24] Madara gained a similar replica of Hashirama's face on his chest after being reincarnated and modified by Kabuto,[25][26] although it disappearred upon him being released from Kaguya Ōtsutsuki's control.[27]
