The Eight Gates Released Formation is the state assumed by a user who has opened all Eight Gates.


To open all Eight Gates, the user must puncture themselves just above the heart. Opening the eighth gate (and all seven preceding it) will cause the user's blood to emanate a flaming aura of red steam from all pores of their body, hair, and eyebrows.

Entering this state uses up all of the body's energy while making the heart pump at maximum power, temporarily gaining powers a hundred times greater than their normal self, far beyond that of the five Kage. This is seen when Might Guy opens all eight gates and fights on par with, and gradually overwhelms Madara Uchiha — the Ten-Tails' jinchūriki at the time — causing Madara to compare his fight with Guy to his fight with Hashirama Senju at the Valley of the End.[2]


As with opening any of the other seven gates, opening the eighth will damage the user's body. Unlike the preceding seven, however, releasing all Eight Gates will lead the user to inevitably die because of the damage done to their body.

Under regular circumstances, the effects of opening the eighth gate will cause the user to crumble to ash and subsequently die, having virtually cooked themselves from the inside-out.


Seireitou Hyūga's Version

Being a reigning Master in Taijutsu, Seireitou Hyūga had invented a variation of this technique that allows for him to use all eight of the inner gates without succumbing to death. Understanding that ki serves as the chakra that fuels jutsu and gives life to the body, neijing is the energy that provides shape and substance, such as the energy that allows the Shinobi's body and muscles to maintain themselves. However, neijing is often dormant and therefore remains useless in the hands of normal Shinobi, unless when used indirectly by martial art movements. In the hands of Seireitou, whom has gone through the necessary training to manipulate this otherwise inaccessible neijing force, he can use neijing as a carrier for the immense chakra released by the eight chakra limiters, allowing for safe passage through the body's muscles without causing damage that would normally result in death. Despite having such a method, Seireitou stresses the importance of allowing a "cool-down time" between the releasing of at least two gates before heading straight for the eighth gate.
