The user unleashes a volley of shuriken with one hand, and at the same time, exhales fire-infused chakra onto them in order to increase the weapons' destructive potential by making them capable of inflicting severe burns upon direct contact with either the intended victim, or any other object caught within their trajectories.

- Hōsenka (鳳仙花) is the Japanese name for the Impatiens balsamina. Tsumabeni (爪紅) is an alternative name for this plant, stemming from its use in producing red dyes for nail polish.

However, that tactic and this technique should not be confused with each other, as this one employs chakra flow — breathing the flames directly onto the shuriken.
