The Yang Release (陽遁, Yōton; Viz "Light Style") techniques, based on the physical energy that governs vitality, can be used to breathe life into form. When combined with Yin Release, it allows the use of Yin–Yang Release.
During the Nine-Tails' attack on Konoha, Minato Namikaze used the Eight Trigrams Sealing Style to seal the Yang half of the fox's chakra within Naruto Uzumaki. Whenever Naruto is in Nine-Tails Chakra Mode, Wood Release techniques will react to the Yang chakra's life-giving properties and mature into full-grown trees within a matter of seconds, either by contact or close range. This was also shown to have the same effect on White Zetsu Army clones, whose genetic make-up is similar to that of plants.
- Yang Release shares the same romanisation as Lava Release.
