"You are within range of my divination"
Using Senbon, he is capable of throwing it with perfect accuracy from 9 kilometres away to strike the opponent precisely at all of their tenketsu points, using the Sharingan to account for all minor errors and the Byakugan to give him a sight range that far. At this range, he applies wind chakra to his senbon to completely nullify all wind effects on the senbon, and unleashes the Senbon at an incredible rate. Since the senbon are so small, they practically produce no sound.
Using several clones, he can also release Senbon at several different predicted positions away from the detected position. This allows him to strike any opponent not using defensive ninjutsu without fail, as long as they are not behind obstructions.
A variant of this uses Chakra Threads in combination as well. With this, the senbon can be freely manipulated mid flight and be channelled Elemental Chakra to pierce through any and all obstacles. When any of these senbon hit they cause paralysis, allowing the rest of the senbon to come in and finish the job. With enough chakra they can even pierce through the person and appear on the other side, effectively making it impossible for them to move any further or risk death, especially when Gentle Fist Blade Threads are used.
Normally, Birusu uses the regular chakra threads and shoots many senbon, imbuing them with chakra to rapidly increase their speed. The senbon are fired at an angle as well such that when the target dodges, it is likely that the target gets caught up in the chakra threads. The senbon then gets embedded deep into the ground, effectively locking the target in place with the target bounded by chakra threads. Birusu can then either absorb the target's chakra and increase the strength of his chakra threads, and/or fire more senbon to seal all his Tenketsu.
If Birusu wants to go for the kill, he can even add ninja wires as well alongside the chakra threads, preventing chakra absorbing people from
This is most often used by Birusu in his assassination missions.
Birusu fights from a several kilometre range using Chakra Threads Combat, using all his clones and all his tenketsu to manipulate Chakra Threads. Using this, Birusu can manipulate a seemingly endless stream of weapons against the opponent, each enhanced with varying degrees of elemental chakra to literally rip the opponent to shreds.
These threads are also used to drastically increase the range of movement that clones have when they are sent into combat, as they can easily be pulled back, upward, downward or accelerated forward. This increases Birusu's clones taijutsu capacity immensely, allowing him to unleash extremely powerful blows, especially when more threads are used.
Also, these clones can also use Clone Great Explosion, making Birusu's tactics incrediby devastating in combat.
This is used when Birusu's target notices his presence but is skilled enough to not get restrained by his previous techniques. This leads to Birusu relying on close range combat instead.
Ninjutsu Annihilation Combat
When Birusu forms clones in combat, he also has these clones form more clones, and has them act autonomously while being pulled into position by chakra threads. This allows multiple elemental ninjutsu to be overlapped simultaneously without hindering any technique. This is possible because of the incredible processing capacity introduced by the Sharingan, allowing Birusu to literally create an elemental combination for every potential position his opponent might move into.
With this he is known to level entire battlefields, generating impossible protrusions from the ground and literally striking where the opponent could ever be in the area. With both the Sharingan and Byakugan, it is nigh impossible to escape his barrage of attacks.
With the Giant Shadow Clone Technique, this power is brought to a whole other level, allowing to Birusu to unleash the Elemental Combination: Meteor Dragon of Doom technique alongside all his previous attacks.
This is normally used when his opponent is a veritable monster, such as Kages or Jinchuuriki, though he does use the previous techniques mixed in as well, in particular the chakra threads and senbon combination.
In the short range, where Birusu is within the vicinity, Birusu may engage in Taijutsu as well.
Steamrolling Melee Combat
Relying on creating an extreme, chakra-dense layer of armour around himself, Birusu uses his incredible chakra mastery to rapidly flow Chakra within his body, vastly enhancing its capabilities and increasing its durability and strength to casually possess Chakra Enhanced Strength. Similarly, he does this with any chakra released outside, forcing it to circulate his body with incredible speed, thereby keeping a large bulk of his own chakra near him. With this, he is able to charge enemies and use the bulky chakra around himself to repel enemy attacks and create shockwaves. He is known to use elemental techniques as well, to enhance his defences.
To add onto his capabilities in close combat, he also makes use of his clones as well, using them to utilize chakra threads to move his body around, as well as any other clones he is using to engage in close combat. With this, he also summons Giant Clones to aid his skill in combat. He normally uses regular shadow clones to use Chakra Threads to help the giant clone move much faster than expected.
Birusu possesses an absurd degree of mastery over the various Elemental Ninjutsu, said to be on par with Shikizaki Hyuga. His control is such that he does not require any handseals to unleash elemental techniques, though he may use them to increase the potency of his chakra drastically.
Unlike Shikizaki, he is unable to unleash Elemental Ninjutsu from any part of his body, but he is capable of unleashing Elemental Chakra from all his tenketsu.
While not as proficient as Shikizaki, he is capable of using most of the Hyuga techniques, however he does not have access to the dangerous Destruction Fist Taijutsu that is reminiscent of Shikizaki. However, he is still capable of using both the Elemental Armour and the Elemental Rotation.
Still, as his Byakugan is not as proficient, he still has to rely on his Sharingan to strike the tenketsu of his enemies.
Birusu has designed a Gentle Fist Art of his own, meant to be much more "gentle" in nature than his friend's Destruction Fist. The Stimulating Gentle Fist relies on the premise of stimulating the tenketsu rather than blocking it, vastly increasing Chakra Flow in the body.
When used on the self, it can increase the flow of chakra without the need of opening the Eight Gates, vastly increasing the power that can be accessed by the user. The downside, however, is that the chakra released can be hard to control, and wasted as it is released to the environment, especially if the user doesn't come from a background of training in Chakra Control. This is especially true when stimulating especially strong tenketsu, such as the Pressure Points of Harm and Death. With sufficient skill and power in Chakra Control, the user may intentionally stimulate many tenketsu in his/her own body, vastly increasing the chakra flow in the user's body for use in extremely powerful attacks, such as the Eight Gates Elemental Ninjutsu, without fear of the body destroying drawbacks that are created by the regular Eight Gates. However, an issue with releasing the constraints of chakra flow from so many tenketsu is that of Chakra Exhaustion, however in the case of Birusu, this is not really much of a problem.
Birusu uses this often to target the enemy, enhancing as many tenketsu as he can to vastly increase chakra flow in the target's body. This not only affects their chakra flow (which increases by a large amount), but affects their control over techniques as well, as they now have to exert control over their chakra lest it be wasted on the environment. Chakra Control subsequently deteriorates, though they are capable of using much more powerful jutsu when these tenketsu are released without problems.
The main reason why this technique is used on enemies is so that their reserves would be exhausted far faster than one might expect, and increase the amount of chakra available for absorption by any chakra absorption user.
A variant of the Eight Trigrams Palms Revolving Heaven, after open several tenketsu in the user's own body, the user releases a far more powerful variant than the original, which creates sporadic chakra shockwaves as the user spins, blowing techniques back and surprising enemies.
A variant of the Eight Trigrams Sixty-Four Palms, designed to literally force the enemy to exhaust their reserves extremely quickly. However, considering the fact that the enemy gets more chakra with every additional hit, the user has to be careful to be able to dodge the enemy's attacks as he executes this technique. Also, the user has to worry about the opponent's incredible power the moment this technique is fully unleashed.
When used on the self, it opens 128 of the regular tenketsu, increasing chakra flow by an incredibly huge amount. If the user's chakra is barely unleashed with this number of Tenketsu released, it is a testament to the user's immense control. With this amount of chakra, it is tantamount to having the sufficient energy to use the Eight Gates Elemental Ninjutsu with ease.
By releasing all the user's tenketsu, the user can enter the state of unimaginable bliss as literally all the chakra in one's body is made available to the user. In this form, the user's chakra becomes extremely erratic, requiring extreme amounts of chakra control to maintain. Due to the mind boggling levels of chakra unleashed in this state, it casually releases shockwaves around the user as the user attempts to contain the sheer power unleashed by the technique, to little avail. In this form, while all the user's chakra flows in his/her body, the user has to be careful with how much chakra he/she puts into any attack, as the user may move from a state of full power to complete and utter chakra exhaustion in an instant, as there are no restrictions as to the amount of power they can place into an attack. This makes them extremely deadly as they can at any moment unleash techniques using their full reserves in one blow, albeit without the physical strength afforded by the Eight Gates.
A side effect of this technique is that sporadically, the user may unleash massive shockwaves of chakra to repel the landscape. This is due to the chakra flow build up within the user's body, creating an increased "Chakra Pressure" within the user's body. When the pressure gets too huge, the user can release it in a massive explosion which repels most Taijutsu users and attacks. If the user is strong enough to contain the Chakra Flow, they may even channel it to their physical strikes or wait for opportune moments to use the chakra shockwave. The Chakra Shockwave comes primarily from the Chakra Pressure, hence little chakra is required to fuel the shockwave despite its incredible force, making it extremely potent in nature.
Furthermore, the incredible amount of focus required to maintain the technique limits the user's strength considerably, as less focus can be spared for considerable plans, and that chakra has to be continually contained within the body, else it will be rapidly released from the user's body, and may result in Chakra Exhaustion extremely quickly.
When used on the enemy, it increases their chakra flow to absurd levels. The main aim of using it on the enemy is to force them to expend their chakra extremely quickly, reducing the enemy's chances in a battle of attrition.
Like Shikizaki, Birusu has also learned the Eight Gates. This allows him to access the Eight Gates Elemental Ninjutsu. Though he sparingly uses the Eight Gates, as few are capable of pushing him that far, he is capable of using most of the Ninjutsu associated with the Eight Gates.
Thus far, he has managed to unlock 6 Gates.
Eight Gates Elemental Ninjutsu
Techniques developed by Birusu and Shikizaki working together. Birusu is extremely well versed in this area, though he often does not require the Eight Gates to use the ninjutsu in this area, courtesy of the monstrous chakra coils he possesses.
The Eight Gates Elemental Ninjutsu, in the case of Birusu, is known to enhance every single ninjutsu known to Birusu by an extreme amount, allowing him to devastate entire battlefields with but the smallest jutsu. The degree of chakra he can channel with several Gates activated is said to be enough to summon meteors in front of his own face instantly.
Naturally, all techniques used in conjunction with the Eight Gates are much stronger than any natural counterpart.
Chakra Exertion: Area of Death
Birusu, releasing chakra into the area, can conjure anything in the area around him at a whim. With it, he may form shadow clones out of nowhere or drop gigantic boulders on targets casually, or even conjure Chakra Threads from nothing, using them as ropes and literally strangling targets.
He can combine this with his Chakra Absorption technique to literally absorb people's chakra in the vicinity, allowing him to absorb chakra from opponents. This does not work on Ninjutsu, however Birusu can convert the chakra he has in the air to repel the opponent's techniques.
A side effect of this technique is that the chakra in the area gives him an awareness of everything within it.
Chakra Absorption Technique
Birusu's chakra absorption technique is unique to him alone, as it relies on absorbing the pure, undiluted chakra of anything, including even elemental chakra. However, he is unable to contain elemental chakra within his own body.
With this he can absorb asinine amounts of chakra, at a rate reminiscent of monsters like Samehada, which can literally swipe several tails worth of tailed beast cloaks of targets, though Birusu requires a longer period of contact than that. Containing the target's chakra using the Chakra Containment Technique, he is capable of storing far more chakra than his max capacity suggests.
Chakra Containment Technique
The Chakra Containment Technique is a method devised by Birusu to effectively contain all kinds of Foreign Chakra flowing in his body. Being subject to foreign chakra in his chakra system since he was young, he had slowly adapted to the influx of Foreign Chakra. However, simply adapting to it was not a sufficient long term solution, as this chakra was harder to contain as compared to his own chakra. Also, there was the fact that he has to train himself to get used to chakra from different people. Therefore, it was apparent that Birusu had to discover a way to contain the influx of Foreign Chakra safely.
Hence, Birusu devised this technique to achieve that effect. By containing any and all absorbed chakra segmented within his own chakra (i.e at the centre of his own chakra). This prevents any foreign chakra from interfering with his body, or coming into contact with anything important, as his rapidly adapting body gradually becomes capable of manipulating the chakra and converting it into his own chakra. This ability has the side effect of allowing Birusu to suppress any enemy chakra within his own body in the form of Genjutsu, rendering him relatively immune to its effects.
This containment technique also helps him contain a vast excess of chakra, as compared to his "max capacity" when he knows that a battle is coming up. It is said that this containment technique is the way in which Chakra Water is made.
This technique can also be used on his Chakra Threads, allowing him to use a vast amount of chakra threads to absorb and contain the enemy's chakra within it, draining the enemy via the chakra threads.
An effect arising from his adaptiveness to foreign chakra, likely never seen before by other shinobi. With it, he is capable of altering the properties of his own chakra at will, changing its potency and altering its affiliated natures. It is for this reason that he is capable of taking control of his enemy's chakra once it is in his body.
When Birusu uses clone techniques, it functions strangely in that Birusu is able to decide how much of the foreign chakra in his body that he wants to put into the clone, as long as the required amount of chakra is distributed among the clones.
Summoning Technique: Moryo
After signing a Summoning Contract with Moryo, Birusu can summon Moryo at will. Moryo is a gigantic, multi-headed dragon as seen in the movie, with a tremendous amount of dark chakra which is extremely potent. His multiple heads and access to the 5 elements give Birusu many avenues to unleash collaboration techniques with Moryo, laying waste to the battlefield.
Moryo also possesses a massive amount of chakra, far more than even Birusu reserves-wise, and rapidly regenerates these reserves due to the nature of Moryo's existence. With Moryo in battle, Birusu may rapidly absorb Moryo's chakra to become far more powerful than he originally is, also giving him access to a seemingly infinite source of chakra.
As Moryo is truly summoned by this technique, Moryo's dark chakra is contained within his body.
Moryo Chakra Mode
Releasing the Chakra Compression Technique which he has active on Moryo's Chakra, Birusu can enter the Moryo Chakra Mode, pushing his reserves to a new high and granting him traits reminiscent of Moryo containers. These range from massive speed, enhanced strength, telekinesis, accelerated healing and incredible additional reserves. Similarly, it also grants Birusu incredible durability, drawing upon the potent chakra to act as a shield against most techniques. This increases his power in combat to a whole new level and grants him the capability to use Tailed Beast Chakra Arms and even the Tailed Beast Ball, a testament to the amount of chakra gained in this state. In this form, his reserves increase drastically, as Moryo begins absorbing chakra from the environment to "regenerate" itself. This causes Birusu to enter Version One, as elaborated on below.
Like the Tailed Beast Chakra Mode, Moryo Chakra Mode grants many similar abilities, namely the ability to use the Tailed Beast Bomb, and other similar abilities. Vastly increasing Birusu's physical prowess, the sentient cloak may help Birusu unleash many secondary attacks which prevent even the Sharingan Eyes from predicting Birusu's next move, and unleash much larger versions of conventional abilities. In this state, Birusu gains the capacity to use the Eight Gates Elemental Ninjutsu even without entering the Eight Gates state, due to his reserves being so high that his natural chakra flow meets the requirements for the techniques stated above. This is in the Version One variant of the Chakra Mode.
When the Chakra Manifestation of Moryo gathers sufficient energy, Birusu can enter the Version 2 Variant of this transformation, giving him much more defined draconic features, with a complete cloak covering his body. In this state, his relation with Moryo and his control over Chakra allows him to remain clear-minded, thereby increasing his deadliness to another level. In this form, all the traits inherent in the regular Moryo Chakra Mode are enhanced, and this gives him a much greater amount of chakra to access, allowing him to unleash bizarre techniques rapidly while still growing in power. In this form, instead of having tails, Birusu has several dragon-like heads, similar to the form of Moryo, manifest behind him, similar to how tailed beasts have tails behind them in battle. These appendages can be extended by a massive amount, giving Birusu extreme range in his attacks. Birusu grows up to 5 'tails' before he enters the next phase. These heads can unleash any elemental chakra of Birusu's choice from their mouths, unleashing massive techniques.
In the next phase, Moryo's chakra condenses around Birusu, beginning to grow into his full form. This is the technical "Full Beast Transformation" for the Moryo Chakra Mode, with Birusu being inside one of the heads, similar to Naruto being inside Kurama's head. In this form, Moryo possesses an incredible amount of chakra, continuing to grow by rapidly drawing in chakra from the surroundings (though there is a limit). In this form, Birusu can continually unleash techniques without fear of failure, and summon several Chakra Manifestations of Moryo via the clone technique. Also, the amount of chakra afforded by this state is said to be far beyond Birusu's maximum max chakra capacity.
Similarly, Birusu can compress this final transformation into a cloak around his body, though the heads still remain present and emerge from the back of Birusu's body. These heads can either act autonomously or through Birusu's will, giving Birusu several more appendages to work with in battle.
Moryo Head Appendages
Instead of unleashing hands like in the Tailed Beast Chakra Appendages, Birusu unleashes heads instead. These heads can grasp onto the opponent and unleash chakra techniques, and are also capable of growing in size at will.
Chakra Manifestation: Moryo
Manifesting Moryo's chakra in the form of a Giant Shadow Clone, Moryo is capable of fighting alongside Birusu and also begin regenerating chakra, as it can assume the properties of its original body in a shadow clone manifestation. This allows Moryo to rapidly gain power over the course of battle, negating the need for Birusu to summon the real Moryo into battle and have Moryo risk damage. As this Manifestation of Moryo possesses extreme regenerative powers, and an absurd control over its own chakra and body, it is almost impossible to dispel and very powerful. This manifestation of Moryo, however, is vulnerable to Chakra Absorption Techniques.
As Moryo does not possess a chakra system, Moryo seemingly functions like a Tailed Beast, capable of unleashing jutsus of any strength without any seeming limit.
Moryo Ghost Army
With Moryo's chakra, Birusu/Moryo is capable of summoning massive numbers of the Terracotta army, which is made out of stone. This army is incredibly durable and resistant to damage, and can be used as a form of defense against an opponent's techniques.
This army can also be converted into their constituent Earth materials at will, allowing the user to unleash extremely powerful variants of Earth techniques using these materials for both offensive, defensive and supplementary techniques.
Combined Transformation: Demon God
This technique is a variant of the Combination Transformation technique.
Executing a combined transformation with Moryo, Birusu is capable of creating the perfect, demonic body which he and Moryo believe to be apt for almost any situation. Creating immensely huge chakra coils and infusing an extremely large potential chakra capacity into the body, the combined transformation forms the medium of an extremely powerful body, one capable of seemingly storing an endless amount of chakra. This transformation allows the user to transform two beings into one, effectively fusing them for the duration this technique is active. Using this, Birusu is capable of expanding his reserves and capacity to absurd levels, said to be able to match a tailed beast in raw power, strength and endurance, with the durability to boot. The chakra capacity possessed by this body is so great that even with Moryo constantly regenerating his chakra, it has yet to reach the maximum which the body can handle.
In this form, Moryo's passive but powerful abilities, such as chakra regeneration and regeneration, are added onto Birusu's and become available for Birusu's use. The body, being made to be capable of handling immense amounts of chakra, allow Birusu to use the Eight Gates Elemental Ninjutsu with ease, courtesy of his chakra flow expanding considerably due to the transformation. The massive power boost affords Birusu the capability to use all the abilities in the Moryo Chakra Mode to a greater extent. Since this technique fuses both users, it is said to increase Birusu's strength to an extent much greater than the Moryo Chakra Mode.
As the user continually regenerates chakra, at a rate likely higher than it is depleted, Birusu grows stronger with every passing moment in battle, awaiting the moment where the battle can finally be ended. When the transformation ends, all the excess chakra gained from the transformation are transferred into a Chakra Storage Seal on Birusu's body for future use (most likely for this transformation).
Despite the advantages this form affords, it looks extremely inhuman and thus Birusu refrains from using it. Furthermore, as the body is a transformation, this renders it nigh impossible for Birusu to suppress his chakra, as chakra is constantly emitted courtesy of the shape transformation afforded by the technique. Hence, Birusu doesn't use it as often as one might expect.
Demon God Chakra Fists
With immense chakra flow from the far larger tenketsu afforded by this transformation, Birusu is capable of unleashing literal Chakra Fists from his hands by simply punching. This gives his physical strength a medium to travel through as it transfers the force via chakra, allowing him to unleash literal ranged melee attacks casually. The Chakra Fist can have however much chakra Birusu desires, increasing both its range and potency if Birusu wishes.
Due to the massive chakra available for Birusu to unleash in this state, Birusu can then make use of Chakra Impact, a much more powerful variant of Chakra Enhanced Strength. Using this, he can concentrate far more chakra into his fist than regular Chakra Enhanced Strength users, allowing him to create shockwaves that are seemingly impossible, and also allow him to literally change direction in mid-air by kicking the air itself. By kicking off the water, he may create massive shockwaves which generate massive tidal waves, propelling him across massive distances. By kicking off land with enough chakra, he may even jump across islands to different continents through sheer power alone, and simultaneously jump several kilometers into the air, creating massive shockwaves where he kicks off. This ability works solely due to Birusu's massive chakra capacity which he can use at will.
Normally, he uses this to execute bursts of pure speed which for the most part are invisible to most people, literally striking the enemy with powerful impacts (which his highly durable chakra-conducive body can withstand). This relatively simple technique can make a world of difference in a Taijutsu battle.
