Several Earth Release-users in a linear formation simultaneously perform hand seals and expel a stream of mud from their mouths, which solidify into multiple columns of earth. These grow upwards from the floor and together form a hardened defensive wall that possesses considerable height, depth and length.

  • A ri () is an old unit of distance. It used to be about half a kilometre (approx. 1640 feet) — and still is in China, where it is called a lǐ — but elongated over time until it was fixed on 3927,27 metres during the Meiji period (1868–1912). A thousand ri is used as a general measurement for a very long distance. Ten thousand ri is that turned to eleven. There is a well-known saying by the famous Chinese philosopher Lǎozǐ that goes, "a journey of a thousand lǐ begins with a single step" (千里之行,始于足下, Qiān lǐ zhī háng, shǐ yú zú xià).
