-Futon (Wind Release): One of the five basic elemental nature transformations. It is performed by making chakra as sharp and thin as possible. Wind Release consists primarily of short to mid-ranged offensive techniques that combine brute force and keen precision to deal cutting and slashing damage. Wind techniques are usually performed by generating air circulation and can be enhanced through this method as well. Wind-natured chakra can also be channeled into blades to increase their cutting power and extend their range.
- -Hien (Flying Swallow): Asuma focuses wind nature chakra into his special knuckle blades to extend their attack range and greatly enhance their cutting power. The density of the chakra is so high it becomes visible and can easily slice through rock and iron.
- -Futon: Fujin no Jutsu (Wind Release: Dust Cloud Technique): This technique creates a stream of high-velocity wind containing countless dust particles, providing a devastating mid-range offensive attack.
-Katon (Fire Release): One of the basic elemental nature transformations. It is performed by molding superheated chakra inside the stomach before releasing it via the lungs and mouth. Fire jutsu are usually mid range and can cover a wide area. The force of the fire chakra is similar to an explosion, as it can carve craters into rock. There are also variants to this in the form of some mediums such as the use of gunpowder, explosive tags, and chakra flow into a weapon.
- -Katon: Haisekisho (Fire Release: Burning Ash Pile): The user spews a stream of chakra infused gun-powder from their mouth, which fills the area. As the gunpowder is composed entirely of ash, it stays in the air around the victim like a cloud. Once the target is engulfed, the user will ignite the ash cloud, causing it to detonate and become a blazing inferno.
