The Yang Release (陽遁, Yōton; Viz "Light Style"; ; ) techniques, based on the physical energy that governs vitality, can be used to breathe life into form. When combined with Yin Release, it allows the use of Yin-Yang Release.
During the Nine-Tails' attack on Konoha, Minato Namikaze used the Eight Trigrams Sealing Style to seal the Yang half of the fox's chakra within Naruto Uzumaki. Whenever Naruto is in Nine-Tails Chakra Mode, Wood Release techniques will react to the Yang chakra's life-giving properties and mature into full-grown trees within a matter of seconds, either by contact or close range. This was also shown to have the same effect on White Zetsu Army clones, whose genetic make-up is similar to that of plants.
- Yang Release shares the same romanisation as Lava Release.
