Where is this technique from? It was never mentioned in the manga or databooks, as far as I know. --ShounenSuki 20:05, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

I think its from the anime based off its English TV version named Universal Assimilation Jutsu. Which means it had at one point appeared in the Japanese anime as Hiru Banshō: Bōka no Jutsu.--TheUltimate3 20:12, 8 December 2008 (UTC)
I figured as much... The Japanese name sounds ridiculous to me, but oh well... at least the kanji and rōmaji match. Was it ever stated that Orochimaru and Zetsu use this technique? With Zetsu, I suspect it's a confusion with his Mayfly technique. --ShounenSuki 20:23, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

It was before Mayfly was given as his technique. Before that you just had to assume he was using this technique.--TheUltimate3 20:39, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

There is no point in the japanese anime, where this "technique" is vocalized, so I repeat the previous question: Where did the name come from? I think, the name refers to Nagares Doka no Jutsu and this jutsu doesn`t exist! -- 00:00, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

It probably came from a databook. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 00:45, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

Neither Rin no Shou, nor Tou no Shou, nor Sha no Shou! My opinion: This Technik is a slurred version of Nagares 拾万象・同化の術, Hirou Banshou: Douka no Jutsu, probably created by some fanbased rpg-forums. -- 12:46, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

I have checked with many sites, and the name seems to be common title people seemed to have agreed upon to describe the technique. I do not believe a proper name has ever been given to this jutsu, in anime, manga, or databook.Kusarigama (talk) 15:21, September 13, 2009 (UTC)Kusarigama.

This technique distortes the area around the user, Mayfly does not although its easy to assume that Orochimaru got the idea from Zetsu during his time in the Akatsuki do to his desire to learn all jutsu.--TheBlueBlur (talk) 01:33, December 18, 2009 (UTC)

Uh... sorry to bring the topic up again, but where the hell is this technique from? It was never named in any official release, afaik. That means, the name must be fanon and thus should not be used here. Seelentau 愛 19:02, June 11, 2011 (UTC)

Since we can't find a correct source, I may as well put that false info template on there until a source can be found, or change it to unnamed or merge with some other technique. Yatanogarasu (Talk) 12:43, March 3, 2012 (UTC)

After all, can't this just be Hiding with Camouflage Technique (I know it's not Mayfly)? Yatanogarasu (Talk) 12:48, March 3, 2012 (UTC)

Hiding with Camouflage technique bends light around the body and hides you. Orochimaru was lodged into a tree and very visible. I don't really see the difference between this or any other unnamed technique that someone decided to get really creative with the name. Removing the kanji and making the article more "general" shouldn't be a problem if it's not going to be deleted.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol 12:52, March 3, 2012 (UTC)

What Cerez says for the way. LordNaruto (talk) 15:07, March 26, 2012 (UTC)

EDIT: Could not it be some Earth Release technique ? this or this ??? --Elveonora (talk) 15:54, March 26, 2012 (UTC)

He was in a tree though.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol 22:33, March 26, 2012 (UTC)

So ? --Elveonora (talk) 23:30, March 26, 2012 (UTC)

It's not Earth Release which "allow the user to manipulate the surrounding earth for offensive and defensive purposes".--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol 23:34, March 26, 2012 (UTC)

Why is it Blocked

can someone remove to block on the technique for update? Jishaku Otoko (talk) 03:40, April 17, 2013 (UTC)

It's blocked only for non-autoconfirmed users. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 01:03, April 18, 2013 (UTC)


When did Yamato used this technique? --Sorrel (talk) 00:40, April 21, 2013 (UTC)

In the anime, he did it when he first appears when summoned by Tsunade. In the manga, he appears to have used it when Team Samui got tracking seeds on them, assuming that wasn't a wood clone that appeared out of the rock. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 15:11, April 21, 2013 (UTC)

existence based on assumption

  • no mention in databooks or manga
  • not official name
  • Yamato and Madara could have used "mayfly" like ability of wood clones

All in all, what Orochimaru did SUPER EARLY in the series back in the forest is questionable. If I were an admin, I would have long deleted this one hell of an excuse for an article. So we have 2 questionable users and 1 "true" user of something we don't even know if exists, articles like this and Body Flame Technique really aren't a good resume for the image and accuracy/credibility of our wiki--Elveonora (talk) 20:04, June 3, 2013 (UTC)

Jutsu summary

Zetsu only technique

Madara and Yamato do not Know the MayFly that jutsu is used by Zetsu only and it has been shown in the anime that a few ANBU black ops members have been seen using the Attack Prevention Technique to phase through the floor in Tsunades office.So while the two techniques look "similar" they are not the same.Whiteraven1 (talk) 20:15, June 3, 2013 (UTC)
