Dust Release (塵遁, Jinton, Viz: Particle Style) is a nature transformation kekkei tōta, a combination of earth, wind, and fire. To perform Dust Release, users form a small three-dimensional object (e.g. a cube, a cone, etc.) out of chakra in their hands. The object expands once released by the user and moves astonishingly fast at its target; anything that passes through it (or that is passed through by it) is disintegrated on a molecular level.


  • In the anime, it is stated that kekkei tōta users have an affinity for all three of the natures they can combine.[2]
  • In Gaara Hiden: A Sandstorm Mirage, it was stated that by combining two different kekkei genkai — in this case Lava and Steel Release — in one attack, the resulting attack would be a "pseudo-kekkei tōta" (擬似血継淘汰, Giji Kekkei Tōta).
