The user converts chakra in their body into an earthen material that they spit from their mouth; the more skilled the user, the greater the volume of earth can then be created. The earth quickly piles up into a defensive wall, blocking incoming attacks. Although the muddy material is solid on its own, it is further fortified with a coat of chakra, making it more resistant to fire and water than it would otherwise be.[1]

Kakashi's use of this technique differs from that of the Third Hokage in several ways. Rather than spit out the materials for the wall, he manipulates pre-existing earth. Additionally, his wall is brick-structured and composed of bulldog sculptures. The greatest difference is in its function: instead of creating the wall to defend himself, Kakashi forms it behind an opponent to box them in and prevent escape.[2] In the anime, this technique can also be used to produce a series of constricting walls to encase a target.[3]
