Water Release (Suiton) is one of the basic elemental nature transformation techniques that allow the user to manipulate pre-existing water, or create their own, by turning their chakra into water. It takes much more ability to create the water than to manipulate what is already available and expel it from their mouths. One of the most versatile of the five basic chakra natures, Water Release techniques can not only change shape but state as well. The water affinity is common to shinobi of Kirigakure. The offensive water techniques commonly appear to do damage from the sudden force that they exert, which would cause massive internal damage to a human.
Relationship with Other Natures
- Water Release will naturally extinguish fire (though a sufficiently powerful technique can cause evaporation) but will naturally be overcome by earth.
- Water Release can be used in conjunction with Lightning Release to increase the flow of electricity thus damage into the target.
- Additionally, it can be used with Wind Release to increase the concussive and overall destructive power of a water technique.
- Water-natured chakra is a component of four kekkei genkai: Ice Release, Wood Release, Storm Release, and Boil Release.
