|Template:Jutsu chakra nature|
The Lightning Release (雷遁, Raiton, English TV: Lightning Style) techniques are jutsu that convert the user's chakra into electricity. Because of this, they require great deal of chakra to be performed. Lightning Release techniques are fast-moving, easily able to pierce matter, and tend to numb the target. It seems to be common to Kumogakure ninja. Lightning techniques are strong against Earth Release and are weakened by Wind Release.
