Wood Release: Feeder Plant is a deadly technique that will always result in the death of the target. This technique also is used to gain information from the target. Making the required handsigns the user will infuse Wood Release chakra, Yang Release chakra, and Yin Release chakra into multiple seeds that can be scattered around the battlefield, in which they will proceed to burrow into the ground. When a target steps on the area a seed is buried or the user activates the technique, a wooden root-like structure will rapidly emerge from the ground and pierce the back of the target's head, creating a link to their brain's cerebellum.
The root-like structure will then begin three different processes. The first process is the chakra absorbing process in which the root structure will continually siphon the chakra from the target until they are dead. The second process is established the moment the root punctures the cerebellum, the physical chakra present in the root creates a link between the target's lifeforce and the root's; so if one dies both die. The third process floods the target's brain with a mixture of spiritual chakra and psychoactive properties of the root that cause the target to enter a state of mind in which they begin to have vivid visions that give them sense of euphoria and separates their mind from reality. This allows the user to interrogate the target without any resistance. The target will not even be fully aware of what their saying or who their speaking to do to the powerful illusions. Though considered impossible by Mitsuru, if the target were to somehow overcome the illusions and attempt to break free of the root they would immediately die do to their cerebellum being punctured by the root as well as the physical link that is created by the target's and the root's lifeforce.
While this technique is ideal for information gathering and interrogation, this method is highly advised against if the intel gatherer wants to keep the target alive. The user can also activate this technique by placing the seeds under their own feet and stomping the ground when they want to initiate it. Even though their chakra is being absorbed at a rapid rate the target actually feels no pain during this technique other than the sudden puncturing of their brain initially. When a target dies from this technique it is said that it feels as if they are calmly and gently falling into an euphoric slumber, which is why Mitsuru considers this a merciful way to kill his foes.
