Orochimaru's juinjutsu: the Cursed Seal of Heaven.

Juinjutsu (呪印術, Viz: Curse Mark Jutsu, literally meaning: Cursed Seal Techniques) are a type of techniques used to bring someone under the control of the user. By applying a seal to the victim's body, the user brings the victim's abilities and actions under their control.

With a simple secret hand seal, the user can inflict great mental and physical torment on the victim. The exact workings of juinjutsu are kept secret.


  • The markings around Shukaku's body are naturally a cursed seal, allowing it to seal its opponents.[1]
  • The marking of the Flying Thunder God Technique is likened to a cursed seal, as any victim marked by it is essentially sentenced to death.[2]
  • In the anime, Victor applied a cursed seal onto himself to extend his own life. However, the seal was also eroding his health, which was compounded by his prolonged usage of his regenerative ability.[3]
