The other 2 Jutsu are the Dou Jutsu and Kin Justu.
Dou Jutsu: This subcategory is
not one of the main skill arts. This jutsu ability stems from the unique qualities of the users genetics. Doujutsu techniques
involve jutsu ability found inherent in the eye that do not involve hand seals. Doujutsu techniques have several abilities.
It gives one the ability to read Genjutsu, Taijutsu and Ninjutsu and then defeat it. It also gives one the ability to cast
jutsu techniques only possible by possessing the eye. The primary users of Doujutsu are the Uchiha Clan, the holders of the
Kin Jutsu: This subcategory is
not one of the main skill arts. Kinjutsu or "Banned techniques" are those jutsu from the three main categories which have
been declared forbidden by the village Kage. This can be because of the toll it places on the ninja, or the evil nature of
the technique used.
Edo Tensei - Resurrection to the Impure World Kuchiyose • Edo Tensei is a Ninjutsu technique which had been
forbidden because of its dark nature. The technique involves the summoning of dead souls from the afterlife back into the
real world. Normally Kuchiyose (summoning) involves the use of the caster's blood as compensation for summoning, Edo Tensei
is different though. The ninja will first sacrifice a living person to provide the vessel that the dead soul will inhabit.
The dead body will then be incased in ash and dirt to resemble the soul of the person that was resurrected. When the ninja
wishes to recall the souls, a portal will open in the ground and the caskets holding the bodies will appear. When the the
caskets open the bodies will be grey and in a state of minor decay. At this point the dead souls are able to remember their
past life, but they are at the command of the one who summoned them. One final act will fully wipe out their conscious and
make them under the command of the one who summoned them. The ninja will place a fuda (charm/tag) of some form into the head
of the body. This will then give vitality back to the body and make it a pure killing machine.
When a portion of the
dead body is damaged, the ash and dust will merely return and fix the damaged body part. The only way currently known to stop
the resurrected person, was to utilize the Shiki Fuujin technique and remove the soul from the body.
Tensei - Living Corpse Reincarnation Fushi Tensei was a specially developed Ninjutsu technique developed by Orochimaru.
The technique prevents death by allowing the caster to leave his body and inhabit the body of another. This allows one to
remain in the world forever as they are not restrained by the age limits placed on ones physical body. When Orochimaru takes
over the body the original individual is not totally wiped out, a small piece of them remains behind to become a part of Orochimaru's
subconscious. Orochimaru wished to use this technique to take over the body of an Uchiha clan member, this would allow him
greater ability to fulfill his goal of learning all the jutsu of the world. When Orochimaru switches bodies, he is forced
to inhabit that body for a period of years before he will be able to use the technique again.
Juin Jutsu - Cursed Seal Technique
Omote Renge - Front Lotus Omote Renge
is a Taijutsu techinque which was forbidden due to the strain it puts on a ninja's body. By opening the first of the Celestial
Gates, the Initial Gate, the ninja is able to release the restraints in the brain and push the body farther. In Lee's case,
he was able to increase his speed and power. To utilize the Omote Renge, Lee first loosens the bandages around his arm. With
a kick dash he is suddenly below his target, a quick upward kick sends his opponent skyward. Lee then jumps into the air to
place his chest to the back of his opponent. He then wraps his arms and the bandages around his opponent to prevent escape.
As the pair begin their fall back to earth, Lee begins to spin downwards at a high rate of speed, driving his opponent head
first into the ground. At the last moment Lee himself releases the bandages and jumps to the clear. Though the technique injures
his opponent, it also takes its toll on Lee's body as well.
