The Swift Release (迅遁, Jinton; Viz "Quick Style"; ; ) is an advanced nature kekkei genkai that can be used to move at virtually instantaneous speed, granting the user an advantage over opponents with more strength than speed, such as users of Chakra Enhanced Strength. This nature therefore renders the user invulnerable against most taijutsu. On this fanon, Swift Release consists of wind and lightning chakra.

In terms of actual Ninjutsu application, Swift Release sends what appear to be static energy in the form of waves, or compressed bullets that move at high frequency and speed. Swift Release is also applicable to ninja tools, similar to Wind or Lightning Chakra. However, unlike its component natures, Swift Release doesn't really increase cutting power, but instead increased the speed the weapons travel at when thrown/launched

To date, this form of nature manipulation has only been used by Hiruko, who obtained it using his Chimera Technique to steal kekkei genkai in Naruto Shippūden 3: Inheritors of the Will of Fire from an unknown shinobi.


  • How this nature differs from the common Body Flicker Technique, aside from speed difference, is unknown. It is possible that Swift-natured chakra is being applied to the Body Flicker, which is a general skill, to produce this effect.
  • Swift Release shares the same romanisation as Dust Release.
