There are many different kinds of bloodline abilities, advanced nature chakras and whatnot. In order to provide some clear overview as what they are capable off, this page is organised to do just that. It also provides some short overview of what chakra, elemental chakra and affinity are in the Roleplay.
'Normal Chakra' in short
Normal chakra is a form of energy all living individuals naturally produce to some degree. Contained in the "chakra coils" that mainly surround and connect to each chakra-producing organ, the energy circulates throughout the body in a network called the "chakra circulatory system" (similar to the cardiovascular system). Certain groups, such as ninja, have learned to generate more chakra and release it outside their bodies through their "chakra points" (tenketsu) to perform special techniques (jutsu). Chakra is not ordinarily visible to the human eye, though chakra can be seen in situations where a person releases as much of their chakra as possible. This is rarely seen due to the restrictions of certain chakra points (Eight Gates), limiting the amount of chakra an individual can release at a single given time. Chakra can also be visible when doing specific techniques (such as the Rasengan) which take a high degree of chakra control to perform.
Nature Transformation (性質変化, Seishitsu Henka, ) is an advanced form of chakra control that entails the moulding and defining of the nature of one's chakra, altering its properties and characteristics for use in techniques.
Nature transformation is one of two necessary components for creating or modifying a technique, the second component being shape transformation. While nature transformation changes the properties of the chakra, shape transformation changes the actual form and movement, altering its abilities.
In general, every person's chakra has an affinity towards one of the five basic nature transformations. Affinity can at times be genetic, or at least common to a particular family; most members of the Uchiha clan have an affinity towards the Fire nature.
Five Basic Natures
The Five Basic Natures (五大基本性質, Godai Kihon Seishitsu) are the five elemental chakra natures, which are the foundation of all elemental ninjutsu.
- Fire (火, Hi) is strong against Wind but weak against Water.
- Wind (風, Kaze) is strong against Lightning but weak against Fire.
- Lightning (雷, Kaminari) is strong against Earth but weak against Wind.
- Earth (土, Tsuchi) is strong against Water but weak against Lightning.
- Water (水, Mizu) is strong against Fire but weak against Earth.
Overview of Abilities
There are many diverse abilities and elemental chakra natures. They are categorized into the following sections:
- Kekkei Genkei / Bloodline Abilities
- Kekkei Tōta / Bloodline Selection
- Advanced Chakra Natures
In short; both bloodline abilities as bloodline selections are inherited through genes and family lines. Someone can try to understand how such an ability works, but without the proper genes, they can't replicate it.
Hidden and Advanced Chakra Natures are quite different in that aspect. Hidden are abilities or certain forms of fighting styles that are kept secret within a clan or organisation. They require specialised training and knowledge before one is capable of reproducing it. Advanced Chakra natures are quite similar; in that, they combine or use elemental chakra into a certain way. Others can copy them but not without a full understanding and experience of how they are created.
Kekkei Genkei/Bloodline Abilities
The list of known of Kekkei Genkei in the Roleplay;
- Boil Release
Boil Release is a nature transformation kekkei genkai, a combination of fire and water. It is currently only known and passed down those of the Yuhiko clan, a small clan within the Dominion of Lightning.
The renowned dojutsu of the Hyuuga clan. Those with the Byakugan are typically identifiable by their unique eyes: the irides are enlarged and white, and there are no distinguishable pupils. When users activate their Byakugan, the pupils become more distinct and the increased blood flow to their eyes causes the veins near their temples to bulge.
- Blue Fire Release
The unique bloodline ability passed from those who manage to master the chakra of the Nibi. While quite similar to regular fire release, Blue Fire Release has shown to be more potent and able to take on unique properties. It is currently claimed by the Homura Dynasty.
- Crystal Release
Crystal Release is composed out of the earth nature solely. Those who have been gifted with the release can crystalize solid material as even most other chakra natures - making the users fearsome opponents. Due to the somewhat random appearance of the kekkei genkei appearing in various families and clans within the Empire of Akino, it has been not easy to map all potential users.
- Explosion Release
Explosion Release is a nature transformation kekkei genkai, suggested to be a combination of earth and lightning. Explosion Release users utilise explosive chakra in combat. It is seemingly common to members of Iwagakure's Explosion Corps.
Approximately three in four Nimatsu descendants inherit the Igurai, which is present at birth. While not as prestigeous, flashy and well-known as the Byakugan or the Sharingan the Igurai allows the user to see as far as a bird of prey
- Ink Creation
Jinchuriki that have tamed and mastered the chakra of the Hachibi are able to use Ink Creation. A rather peculiar chakra transformation that can take on unique properties, it has been hypothesised that it Bijuu chakra allows abilities unreachable by mere human chakra - due to the feats of Ink Release.
- Ice Release
Ice Release is a nature transformation kekkei genkai, a combination of water and wind. It has been considered a most dangerous kekkei genkei, for its versatile and destructive uses in battle. It is currently only known within the Yuki clan, which used to reside in the Frost country. But these days, the descendants of the Yuki clan are found primarily in the Republic of Water.
- Lava Release
Lava Release is a nature transformation kekkei genkai, a combination of fire and earth. Whereas most kekkei genkai are largely identical between users, Lava Release has a variety of forms depending on who's using it. It is most common among some small clans within the Earth country as those who have mastered the chakra of the Yonbi.
- Magnet Release
Magnet Release is a nature transformation kekkei genkai, suggested to be a combination of wind and earth.[Notes 1] Magnet Release users generate a magnetic force which they apply to other substances for various purposes. Currently, it is most common among the Miyazato clan - where some descendants are 'blessed' with the particular release.
- Mud Release
Mud Release (泥遁, Deiton) is a nature transformation kekkei genkai, a combination of water and earth. Because these same natures are used to create Wood Release, and because Wood Release is so famous, few people have ever heard of Mud Release. It has appeared with various individuals, making it hard to track which clan or families are able to pass the release unto their descendants.
- Scorch Release
Scorch Release is a nature transformation kekkei genkai. It is the result of wind and fire natures being mixed into each other. Though very potent on the battlefield, there are only very few who have appeared to wield the release; various members of the Hayashi clan within the Republic.
The Sharingan is the dōjutsu kekkei genkai of the Uchiha clan that appears selectively among its members. Due to its strong abilities, the sharingan has been desired by various individuals and other clans. Currently, only the Uchiha of Akino have the sharingan - aside from a particular Hon.
- Smoke Transformation
This unique kekkei genkai is possessed by various individuals which allows them to turn their bodies, either partially or fully, into smoke to serve various purposes. While in their smoke form the user becomes impervious to damage and can use this trait to gain an opportunity in battle, for example by allowing weapons to slip through them without any effects. However, if needed, they can still interact with physical objects. In their smoke form, they're also capable of entering a person's body, effectively possessing them. There hasn't yet been a clan that is confirmed to pass this release down unto its members.
- Steel Release
A nature release kekkei genkei, Steel Release is made by both fire and earth release. It is allowing the user to cover themselves in steel, to enhance their fighting capability or allowing them to survive impacts that would be most disastrous for others. Due to the random appearances in various families, it is hard to say where Steel Release originates.
- Storm Release
Storm Release is a nature transformation kekkei genkai, a combination of lightning and water. It is passed down the members of the Irozaki clan, various families within the Dominion of Lightning. Despite its name, Storm Release does not manipulate actual storms at its basic; it instead manipulates beams of electricity which flow like water.
- Wood Release
Wood Release is a nature transformation kekkei genkai, a combination of Earth and Water Release. It is most famous by the usage of the First Hokage of Konohagakure, appearing within several individuals of Senju heritage. Oddly, however, it has been used by various individuals outside of the Senju clan - leading to the speculation that the Senju aren't the sole users of Wood Release.
The list of known of Kekkei Tõta in the Roleplay;
- Dust Release
Dust Release is a nature transformation kekkei tōta, a combination of earth, wind, and fire. To perform Dust Release, users form a small three-dimensional object (e.g. a cube, a cone, etc.) out of chakra in their hands. The object expands once released by the user and moves at its target; anything that passes through it (or that is passed through by it) is disintegrated on a molecular level. Because of the sheer destructiveness of Dust Release, its users are usually unmatched in a fight, and they can easily fend off countless enemies. For this reason, most consider that the best way to counter a Dust Release user is to pair them against a second Dust Release User. Currently, it is only known to have appeared within the confines of the Earth Country.
- Metal Release
Compromised out of earth, fire and water; Metal Release is created. It is often confused with Steel Release but is very different. Users of this kekkei tõta are capable of mending and affecting various metals; using their chakra to change their shape and sometimes even their properties. It is currently only known to be passed down some of the descendants of the Hyuzu clan.
Advanced Chakra Natures
The list of known of Advanced Chakra Natures in the Roleplay;
- Ash Release
A rare combination of earth and fire release has led to the creation of Ash Release. It allows the user to manipulate hot remains of fire in various ways. It has been created by Ryo Katsu, a special operative of the Akinian Empire.
- Obsidian Release
The combination of three natures has led to the creation of Obsidian Release. It primarily uses earth and fire; to heat up and create the core. Mastery of Water Release basic is required to cool down the element rapidly to form the curious Obsidian release. It has been conjured by Kazumo Sarutobi.
The list of known of Hidden in the Roleplay;
- chakra circulatory system: The Chakra Pathway System is a term used to describe the points within the body that channel chakra through it. Simply put they serve the same function for chakra as blood vessels do for blood.
- tenketsu: Along the chakra pathways, there are 361 nodes called tenketsu that control the flow of chakra like circuit breakers.
- Eight Gates: The Eight Gates exist in order to limit the flow of chakra within an individual's body. Ordinarily, individuals can use no more than 20% of their body's full potential, the brain's way of protecting the individual from harming their body through overexertion.
