Wind Release: Air Sand Protective Wall (
風遁・空砂防壁, Fūton: Kūsa Bōheki), Giant Sand Shield
Anime, Manga, Game
This air defence technique creates a giant shield of
sand that is suspended in mid-air by raising a great amount of sand from the ground. By gathering the best possible mineral-rich sand, the hardness of the shield is considered to be very high.
Furthermore, the sand has its defensive strength raised by flowing chakra through it. It was strong enough to protect
Sunagakure from Deidara's C3, and stop a lightened Tengai Shinsei.
, Gaara uses this technique in conjunction with The Last: Naruto the Movie wind-natured chakra, creating multiple giant sand shields, to protect his village from a falling meteor.
Kūsa, when written as 空佐, is a rank in the Japan Air Self-Defence Force. It is about equivalent to the rank of Colonel.
