Should we count the fact that his clothes were never damaged while using this (despite sword blades, explosions, Choji's Spiked Human Bullet Tank, and Kakashi's hand going through them; heck I do not think they even got scruffed!!) as either a graphics error, or that the invulnerability is partially transferred to the clothes as well?

It didn't work when he was attacked by Raidō Namiashi. Jacce | Talk | Contributions 05:39, June 12, 2010 (UTC)

There seems to be a little changing in the reference to how strong this is: diamond or steel? Thomas Finlayson (talk) 04:08, November 6, 2010 (UTC)

How about really fucking hard? I doubt it was ever meant to resemble the strength of any real-life material. They're just similes, not hard facts. —ShounenSuki (talk | contribs | translations) 13:38, November 6, 2010 (UTC)
Should you guys put in a reference to what it "can" withstand then? Akatsuchi (talk) 21:36, November 9, 2010 (UTC)

Somebody Explain...

On Naruto Shippuden episode 85, 6:25, I notice that Kakuzu can still use Earth Spear despite his earth element mask being smashed by Kakashi's Lightning Blade. Is this an anime-only quirk? If not, can someone explain this thing? —This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) .

It only happens in the anime, but a ninja can have at least two elements on their own.--Deva 27 (talk) 03:13, December 7, 2010 (UTC)
Even more than two. In the manga, Kakashi has three. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 18:58, December 7, 2010 (UTC)


in the Sha no Sho, the jutsu is called "diamond morph" but in the infobox it says "iron skin" or "earth sphere" so which is the correct one? —This unsigned comment was made by Tris0928 (talkcontribs) .

We don't use the Viz Translation because most of the time, it ends up being wrong. ShounenSuki is the resident translator so we take his word for everything. Even on other sites, everyone uses ShounenSuki's translation because it is usually 100% correct --Speysider (Talk Page) 16:16, March 20, 2012 (UTC)
alright then thanks. :)Tris0928 (talk) 16:29, March 20, 2012 (UTC)


I read in my Sha no sho that while hardened the hardened body part is rendered immobile. I'm wondering why this isn't included on the page. Does the anime portray the technique without this limitation? Or did no one ever get around to adding it? Skarrj (talk) 10:33, January 3, 2014 (UTC)

I don't see any reference to that in ShounenSuki's translation of the original entry in the Japanese version. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 17:03, January 3, 2014 (UTC)
So...? I'm confused then if that's the case... Skarrj (talk) 05:53, May 15, 2014 (UTC)
