A technique developed by Sasori of the Red Sand, this allows him to create puppets from human corpses. As Sasori was the only person to know how to create human puppets, this technique became lost forever when he died.

By removing the internal organs of a foe and preserving the body to prevent decomposition, as well as adding weapons and defenses, Sasori can make powerful human puppets. These puppets are different from normal ones, as they retain their use of chakra and any Kekkei Genkai that the human host once had. Sasori developed this during his time in Sunagakure, and he claims to have 298 of them, using 103 in his battle with Sakura and Chiyo.

One of Sasori's most powerful techniques revolving around the Human Puppets is the Red Secret Technique: Performance of a Hundred Puppets, which, with his own puppet body modifications, allows him to control one hundred human puppets, a feat impossible for even the most elite puppet users. Though they lack team work, they are used to overpower the enemies through attrition, and was claimed to have taken down an entire nation.

Known Human Puppets

  • Hiruko - Once a great shinobi of Sunagakure, now a deadly puppet worn like a battle armor. In the manga, Hiruko is just an ordinary puppet.
  • Third Kazekage - The greatest Kazekage in history, kidnapped and killed by Sasori to gain use of the Iron Sand techniques.
