Lava Release(熔遁; 溶遁; 鎔遁, Yōton, English TV: "Lava Style" or "Corrosion Style") is an advanced nature kekkei genkai that combines fire and earth-based chakra to create lava and related substances that can serve multi-faceted purposes.
- Molten Rock (with varying degrees of viscosity)
- Acidic Mud
- Vulcanised rubber
- Molten Metal (varying types of metal)
- Melting Flames
- There is a subtle difference in the meaning of the kanji used for this kekkei genkai. Although both mean "to melt", the kanji with the "fire" (火) radical (熔) is outdated and means "melting with fire", whereas nowadays the kanji with the "water" (水) radical (溶) is normally used. Mei Terumī's Lava Release: Melting Apparition Technique and Boro's Lava Release: Planet-Branding Blast, which both utilise strong acidic fluids, are the only Lava Release techniques written with 溶. This, along with Jin no Sho stating that Mei's Lava Release kekkei genkai can only be used by her, indicates a difference between 溶遁 and 熔遁.
- In Sha no Sho, the "water" kanji is used in Rōshi's entry, whereas in the glossary, the "fire" kanji is used. In Jin no Sho, only the "fire" kanji is used for Rōshi's Lava Release.
- In Naruto: Shinobi Collection Shippū Ranbu, both versions are specified separately in the description of "Sage Art: Super Tailed Beast Rasenshuriken".
- In Viz's English translations of the series, this nature is initially referred to as "Corrosion Style" when it is first mentioned in chapter 353 and Naruto: Shippūden episode 121. In subsequent appearances, it is instead translated as "Lava Style". However, some video games use the two translations interchangeably.
- Lava Release shares is romanisation with Yang Release.
