Temari using a Wind Release technique.

Wind Release (風遁, Fūton; English TV "Wind Style"; ; ) is one of the five basic elemental nature transformations. It is performed by making chakra as sharp and thin as possible. Wind Release is mainly short to mid-ranged offensive techniques that combine brute force and keen precision to deal cutting and slashing damage. A rarity among the five chakra natures,[1] wind techniques are usually performed by generating air circulation and can be enhanced through this method as well.[2] Wind-natured chakra can also be channelled into blades to increase their cutting power and overall range.

Relationship with other Natures Edit

  • Wind is strong against lightning because it is a natural electrical insulator but weak against fire because the flames are fuelled by air.
  • Wind Release can be used in conjunction with Fire Release to augment the strength of the fire technique.[3]
  • Additionally, it can be used with Water Release to increase the latter's concussive and overall destructive power.[4]
