This is an ability, possessed by Black Zetsu, that allows him to record events that he has personally witnessed.


When used in conjunction with his signature Mayfly technique, he can gather data from battles without being detected. In order to show these recordings to others, he must first merge with the recipient. Black Zetsu, over the centuries, claims he was able to record the entire history of shinobi to later show his creator, Kaguya Ōtsutsuki, after her revival.
