This is the article on the fire technique. For the wind and fire technique, head to Wind Release: Toad Oil Flame Bullet.

This is a cooperation ninjutsu performed by a toad and a fire user who have achieved mental and physical harmony with each other. The toad (specifically a large toad such as Gamabunta) uses its large lung capacity to spray toad oil from its mouth at a target. The fire user then ignites the oil, increasing the attack's range and power; Jiraiya uses Fire Release: Flame Bullet for this purpose.[1] In the anime, Naruto Uzumaki instead sets flame to the oil with an exploding tag.[2] The resulting cloud of fire is great enough that it forces Manda to shed its skin to escape.[3]
