Naruto the Sage

Natural energy being gathered.

Natural energy (自然エネルギー, Shizen enerugī, English TV: Nature Energy) is energy that can be collected from the atmosphere and terrain. If one can collect the natural energy from around them and combine and balance it with the spiritual and physical energy that makes up their chakra, they can become sages, allowing them to use senjutsu and enter Sage Mode. This method can be taught by the inhabitants of Mount Myōboku and Ryūchi Cave.

The members of Jūgo's clan possess a special ability called Sage Transformation which causes their bodies to constantly absorb natural energy and allows them to regulate this energy to perform a myriad of shape-shifting feats. However, as they are unable to control the flux of power that comes with this, they are prone to randomly going berserk. Orochimaru also figured out how to utilise natural energy thanks to Jūgo's abilities and his discovery of the Ryūchi Cave, but was also unable to use it properly because he did not possess strong enough host bodies to use such power.[1] Failure to control this energy leads to petrification or to the transformation into a snake that is subsequently eaten by the White Snake Sage.

Due to it being the energy of the planet, if the world's natural energy is interfered with, powerful natural disasters ranging from earthquakes to tornadoes occur instantly.[2]
