the body. Then to use it, Hand Seals are performed. This allows the user to expel it out the body in the form of an attack, and require s different Hand Seals for different attacks. Although somewhat similar to energy forms in animes like Dragonball Z and Yu Yu Hakusho, the Chakra seen in Naruto is in no way the same. In these other animes, users can practically double their "Chakra -like energy" in what feels like 5 minutes. But in Naruto, Chakra takes time and lots of training to gradually build up. This prevents having things like a 12 year old kid with enough energy to blow up a whole planet. So what's really the key here is not actually having chakra, but being able to sufficiently control it. Because, everyone has Chakra, but only skilled ninja can correctly manipulate it to it's fullest extent. As an in -between stage here, some ninja, can partially control their Chakra. This means they can use th eir Chakra, but not effectively control it, which results in poorly executed justus, and more importantly, running out of Chakra early in a fight. Masashi Kishimoto, the creator of the Naruto manga series states the following quote in an interview with Sh onen Jump about the series:
"I needed a hook to tie in those points in the story when characters would use powers that were beyond normal human capabilities. The term is Chakra, which is used as an explanation for readers to better understand the powers. It¶s similar to ³the Force´ in Star Wars, or chi (Ki) in "Dragon Ball", or magic points in RPGs."
So from a writer's standpoint, you could see this as a tool that allows for his characters to have super human strengths, whi le at the same time still feeling realistic and making sense. Out of the many different types of jutsus: Ninjutsu, Genjutsu, Doujutsu, and so on, all require the use of Chakra. However, one of the types (Taijutsu) is different. It basically requires no Chakra use whatsoever. The ninja stil l needs Chakra to live, Taijutsu just doesn't use it. A standard attack like a punch or kick falls into this jutsu category. Since Chakra is the resulting form of energy when 2 other energies are mixed together, having those other 2 energies become more powerful, will in -turn make the Chakra more powerful. These other two energies are Physical energy, which is collected from the body's cells, and and Spiritual energy, which is built up through experience and meditation.
Therefore, practicing a jutsu repea ditly, will build up your expierence, thus giving you more spiritual energy, and then allowing more Chakra to be created. Which as a result then allows you to do that same attack with more and more power. This same cycle applies for Physical energy, except this time, instead of doing things like meditation, you could say, do push ups. The process in which you mix these two energies together is known as Chakra Molding. And is explained in the show as seen below:
"Molding Chakra means to extract energies from both the body and the spirit, then mixing them up in your body. And the amount of each energy will differ from the type of technique you wish to execute. In other words, the mixing will be different. You are not able to use your Chakra effectively. Even i f you are able to mold a large amount of Chakra, If you cannot control the balance, your technique will only be half as effective or not executed at all. Wasting energy will create a weakness of not being able to fight for a long time."
Now that you understand in the ins and outs of Chakra, make sure to check out our other fun sections in the Chakra guide.
" "Ebisu: Naruto-kun. There is no need for any hand poses nor is t here any need for Chakra (although there are some exceptions). First. you know! He¶s better. it would be pointless to try to re -word it when such an official wording is readily available. This chart shows the status of the caster before he uses any jutsu when his stamina is a t its peak of 100%.The majority of this page has been copied word -for-word from Chapter 90 of the Naruto manga series using Toriyama¶s World scanlations. Ebisu Sensei¶s a tutor who specializes in teaching only the elite." This graph is a simplified chart showing how the body energy and spiritual energy or in other words. of the three students that I teach in the team #7 you¶re the one with the worst basic skills. and dialogue of characters talking to each other will be italicize d. For obvious reasons. and not a fan -group. He¶s a special Jounin. the offi cial English translators. the control of the stamina is very simple. When VIZ releases their translations for this chapter. Taijutsu or Genjutsu ." Well. . "Kakashi: Naruto. Only the stamina naturally needed for that par ticular martial art skill is consumed. have him teach it to you thoroughly this time. I analyzed the data and could tell that you aren¶t able to control your Chakra very efficiently. Naruto. when the caster uses Taijutsu. we may re -type some (or all) of this page using those translations. the ³stamina´. All images will be posted below the text that relates to them. my comments will be put in [ ]. after hearing about you and the other two from Kakashi sensei. since they are after all. flows within a ninja¶s [correct spelling here would actually be ninja with no ³s´] body when he uses Ninjutsu.
However. in the cases where you use Ninjutsu (ninja spells) or Genjutsu (Illusions). . it is necessary to control the Chakra. there is a need to build up the Chakra required to use that particular technique. by using a serie s of complex hand poses. according to the amount needed for that particular jutsu. First. From there.
Ninjutsu. with the previous explanation as a basis. I will explain further using Bunshin no Jutsu as an example. We will say that the Chakra needed to create the four clones is 30%. Well then. the energy used for the Taijutsu. think of it as a 0% stamina & 0% chakra means you die. First in Sakura¶s case. And when she activates this jutsu by going through the hand motions she can control the amount of Chakra necessary very precisely so« . she can build up exactly 30% Chakra when she wants to activate this jutsu.Of course. or Genjutsu is expelled and will disperse! In ot her words.
there is no problem here. when really only 30% is needed. And so. But. he can split into four but« because Sasuke -kun will not be able to reconvert the extra 10% Chakra into stamina. because the control he exerts over his Chakra is perfect like Sakura -kun. it results in the 10% extra Chakra being wasted«He¶s only able to conserve 60% of his stamina! "Naruto: What do ya know! Sasuke aint so great after all! HAHA!" .She can split perfectly into her four clones and still save 70% of her stamina! He¶s inept in building up his Chakra so he will create 40%. which is much more than needed.
."Ebisu: In your case«you can¶t afford to be laughing at others. was highly modified when put into the anime series. it can also be said that because of the influence from Kyubi. who is at the root of that stamina the Chakra becomes more difficult to control«" [This chapter of the Naruto manga series. this example might have been a little exaggerated to show the difference in you three.] .Even when you three use the same jutsu. and thus the images seen in this section are from the manga and not the anime. Furthermore. in your case. Naruto -kun. first of all. But you. you inadvertently create 50%. You are only able to conserve 50% of your stamina and can create only one clone with 40% of wasted Chakra just remaining unused!. use too much st amina and your jutsu activation is also unstable. you¶re so unskilled at controlling your Chakra that you can only use 10% when really you should be using 30%. there is this much of a difference! "Ebisu: Well. you just happen to have the greatest amount of stamina" "Kakashi (to self): Well! On the other hand. build up too much Chakra." You are even more inept than Sasuke-kun in creating Chakra so when you only need 30%." "Naruto: But.. even I had times when I was more terrific than Sakura -chan or Sasuke!" "Kakashi: That¶s because among the three.
this is just the first step. For each of these ways that have currently been revealed. But. Like the Tree Climbing exercise. producing too much or too little Chakra will result in falling. the goal is to gain better control and manip ulation of one's own Chakra. sustaining it for minutes. and tried to show it to Naruto and three of his other students when he saw them having trouble concentrating. Also like the Tree Climbing exercise. we have given an explanation of what it is. only those who have worked hard at their ability to conce ntrate can become excellent Ninja. Iruka liked this exercise. Leaf Concentration will hone a Ninja's concentration ability.There are several different ways ninja are trained to learn to better use their Chakra. However. Leaf Concentration A related training exercise to Chakra Molding. As explained by Naruto's early teacher Iruka in a flashback. Unlike the Tree Climbing exercise. With too little Chakra. If you have gathered too much Chakra you will break the tree and be thrown in the opposite direction. Water Walking: Similar to Tree Climbing. or even hours is the true test. just the right amount of Chakra. the leaf emblem on the Konoha head protectors comes from this exercise. the user must gather Chakra at the bottoms of the feet. and may be different from time to time. The user must produce (and sustain). what you're walking on isn't a solid surface and is constantly moving! This means that exact amount of Chakra you need to produce is different then when on a solid surface. When this is taught to Naruto. Therefore. While trying to master the Rasengan Naruto thinks back to that lesson. Tree Climbing: In this exercise. For generations Konoha ninja have practiced their concentration. Being able to do this successfully is a big step in learning to properly control and manipulate ones own Chakra. a leaf is placed on the user's forehead to focus upon. and have used the Leaf Concentration exercise. an extra part of the Kyubi seal is removed. and then walk up a tree as if it were ground. giving Naruto much less restricted Chakra flow. Doing this for a matter of seconds is the "easy" par t. and uses Iruka's advice help complete the 2nd stage in learning the Rasengan. you will also fall. think of this exercise as merely a more advanced version of the same thing. Kakashi believed if his students could sustain it long enough to walk to the top of a tree they had learned this exercise and passed the test. with the correct amount the user will actually stick to the tree. . To keep the mind from becoming distracted.
