|This is the article on the technique performed through the Eight Gates. For the one performed by the ninken, head to Crane Wing Formation.|
The users line up side by side and enter the sixth gate. Upon doing so, they leap at their opponent, able to reach high up into the sky. The aura surrounding the users as a collective gives off the appearance of a crane's wings spread out — hence the name. When enclosing in on a target, the technique acts like a powerful blade, capable of destroying most of a gigantic meteorite.
