The Hell Stab is the strongest technique of the Third Raikage, whereby he concentrates a considerable amount of lightning chakra into just the finger-tips of a single hand and then performs a thrusting motion, which together allows him to pierce a target in a manner somewhat similar to either the Chidori or Lightning Cutter.


The intensity, size and strength of the technique can be proportionally increased by reducing the number of fingers involved:

  • Four-Finger Nukite (四本貫手, Yonhon Nukite): Strong enough to break through robust defences with relative ease. 

  • Three-Finger Nukite (三本貫手, Sanbon Nukite): Effective against even malleable materials that can usually handle a blow by dissipating its force. By swinging his hand the Third can create a shock-wave which was powerful enough to send opponents in the immediate area around him flying backwards.

  • One-Finger Nukite (一本貫手, Ippon Nukite): Known as the "strongest spear" (最強の矛, saikyō no hoko), where the concentration of chakra is so great that it extends well beyond the finger in a lone point. It was capable of cutting off all of Gyūki's tails during an encounter, and was capable of piercing even the Third's Lightning Release Armour, backfiring the damage scarring his body, which due to its ability to his immense durability was regarded as the "strongest shield" (最強の盾, saikyō no tate)
