The user releases a large amount of fine powder from their mouth or body, which, due to its luminous quality, shines so brightly that it can temporarily blind multiple targets within its area of effect.
- While the kanji in the term "rinpun" (鱗粉) literally mean "scale powder", the term refers specifically to insect scales (such as the "dust" on moth wings). According to old wives' tales, that dust causes blindness.
- In Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 and Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution, the powder appears to be orange as well as combustible, while in the anime, it is bright white. They are also an ability of Chōmei's, while in the manga, that is unconfirmed.
- In the anime, the Infinite Tsukuyomi version of Chōmei in B's dream is able to use this technique.
