Scorch Release: Twilight's End (灼遁 日暮れ最後, Shakuton: Higure Saigo) is a technique that Hōsōshi developed that is inspired by his dream — commented by Kami it could lead to a potential "apocalypse" if utilised. Simply by raising his hand, Hōsōshi begins to utilise his scorch chakra to create a small ball that is spiritually empowered, forcing "life" to be absorbed into it that feeds the scorch ball and increases its size and heat overtime. The heat intensifies, producing an artificial “sun”, whose flames will descend to scourge the land, and dawning upon those that oppose to burn them to ashes.
Eventually the descended flames will be "swallowed" and added to the huge fireball that will trigger the second phase of the technique. The transcension between the two phases will temporarily weaken the resistance of the technique — giving opponents with water release the chance to stop the evolution — due to its sheer destructive power increasing tremendously. After its transformation is complete, it will steer up high to the sky and surround Hōsōshi, who will 'empower' it with his furiousity and blast it away in all directions. According to him, the flame is "endless" and will keep going until the "life" in it dies out — meaning that it must no longer be able to absorb "life".
- Considering it is a Scorch Release technique, anything that touches these flames will be evaporated, thus will be mummified.
- Water Release techniques may "weaken" the technique. It's especially vulnerable to it when the technique is transcending to the second stage.
