The basic battle formation of Takiatsu teams. It consists of the leader starting a fight 'alone' while the four other members hide. Once a signal unique to each member is given they launch a surprise attack from their position and then become an active member in the abttle. Often used to conserve the chakra of those who run out easily.

It is the first formation learned by teams trained by the Takiatsu, and as such is the most simplistic.
