Orochimaru's killing intent, experienced by Sakura Haruno and Sasuke Uchiha.

Killing intent (殺気, Sakki, English TV: Murderous Intent) is simply the user exuding pure killing intention, and having it affect their opponent, themselves, and others around them, up to the point of paralysing them with fear.[1] When the killing intent is particularly strong, it can even give the victim visions of their own gruesome death.[2] This can cause killing intent to be confused with a genjutsu, despite it not being a jutsu at all. Amado Sanzu has weaponized killing intent through scientific ninja tools to a great degree with Daemon, the mere thought of killing him being enough to trigger the reflection of an attack against an assailant.
