Dust Release (塵遁, Jinton, Viz: Particle Style) is a nature transformation kekkei tōta, a combination of earth, wind, and fire. To perform Dust Release, users form a small three-dimensional object (e.g. a cube, a cone, etc.) out of chakra in their hands. The object expands once released by the user and moves astonishingly fast at its target; anything that passes through it (or that is passed through by it) is disintegrated on a molecular level.
Because of the sheer destructiveness of Dust Release, its users are usually unmatched in a fight and they can easily fend off countless enemies. For this reason, the best way to combat one Dust Release user is with a second Dust Release user.
Dust Release techniques seem to require a certain amount of preparation time, making it possible to prematurely halt the technique before it is completed. The hands also play a crucial role in the preparation, so interfering with the user's arms can hinder the technique. Dust Release techniques seem to be rather chakra-taxing.
- Ōnoki stated that Mū passed the secrets of Dust Release on to him, possibly suggesting that these techniques are not genetic.
- Dust Release shares the same romanisation as Swift Release.
- The kanji for "dust" (塵) also appears in the word for particle, atom, or little piece (微塵, mijin, Literally meaning: minute dust). Additionally, the on-reading jin can refer to "one-billionth" (10−9) as well as the Buddhist term for defilement, impurity, or affliction.
