"Sensitive ability"

Amaterasu has showed a weak point on this technique, but I don't think only the Uchiha's black fire can do this. I think that the "inorganic life" can avoid the danger through a sensitive ability, like the live being does. Indeed they don't have the organelles of the cells with that function, but since they can "detect" and attack a target, I think they can also do this. So what do you think? The only weak point of this jutsu is Amaterasu or general intense heat?--Spcmn (talk) 14:44, April 11, 2012 (UTC)

They can revert to their previous state? It's a bit confusing to me because organic beings don't have previous states to revert to. For now, unless someone can find a precise scientific reason for that happening, I think what Kabuto said exactly should be mentioned, no assumptions.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 14:48, April 11, 2012 (UTC)
While I find it plausible, given that "response to stimuli" does fit with at least the biological definition of life, I don't believe Kabuto's statement alone is enough to confidently assert that this is what occurred. Blackstar1 (talk) 14:52, April 11, 2012 (UTC)


Should we change the name of this technique to Sage Art: Inorganic Reincarnation whether that allows any object to be reincarnated without using the internal energy? Shakhmoot (Talk) 14:55, April 11, 2012 (UTC)

I think it's best leaving the decision about this technique's name to ShounenSuki, seeing how the "tensei" (転生) used here is the same as that in Summoning: Impure World Resurrection. Blackstar1 (talk) 15:01, April 11, 2012 (UTC)
I agree. Move it when we have raws. It might be that tensei can translate to something else.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 15:05, April 11, 2012 (UTC)
It would fit with the others romaji translation, but we do have to wait for ShounenSuki.--Spcmn (talk) 15:08, April 11, 2012 (UTC)

Calling it "reincarnation" doesn't make sense. Resurrecting something that was never alive to begin with? Say what? :O And was this technique actually named? I don't recall seeing one. o3o Edit: Never mind on that name bit, I see my answer in the infobox. Skitts (talk) 15:49, April 11, 2012 (UTC)

It should be 'resurrection', indeed. But maybe Suki-senpai thinks something else is more fitting. Seelentau 愛 11:01, April 12, 2012 (UTC)

Transmigration = Transfiguration ?!?

Sort of interesting. On the one hand we have:

Transmigration of the soul or reincarnation, a spiritual belief

yet, on the other hand, we have:

transitive verb — to cause to go from one state of existence or place to another

Although that last one can be read in the same way, after the Harry Potter madness it isn't out of the range of possibilities to view this as:

inorganic to organic transfiguration.

It seems magic truly has found its way into the Naruto World. LOL--Joolushko Tunai Fenta Hovalis (talk) 23:15, April 12, 2012 (UTC)

As I said above, the correct translation would be 'resurrection' ;) Seelentau 愛 23:31, April 12, 2012 (UTC)
We can also see the Impure World Resurrection (that has the same "Tensei") as a form of changing two souls of place in one body of this living world. @Seelentau, according with, "Transmigration of souls" also fit with those Kanji of "tensei". So I don't think theres a correct form, but we can think in a appropriate form.--Spcmn (talk) 23:38, April 12, 2012 (UTC)
Well, that translation is not really accurate. 転 'ten' means 'revolve', 'turn around' or 'change', 生 'sei' means 'life' or 'existence'. But 転生 'tensei' really means 'resurrection' or 'reincarnation'. It's apparantly a buddhistic term. Seelentau 愛 23:48, April 12, 2012 (UTC)

Natural Energy, or Yin-Yang release?

In the translation I read, which I don't entirely trust, so please correct me if I'm wrong, Just says that Kabuto instills life into inanimate objects, but doesn't state how he actually does it. If the translation I read is correct, while instilling natural energy into it is a good theory on how the technique works, based on how Kabuto was relating himself to the sage of six paths, I think its more likely that its Yin-Yang release or one of its composite elements. I can also understand how the phrase "different from jutsus that simply control with chakra" might make you think that he was using natural energy, but I think he was just comparing creating life to controling a medium through chakra, such as earth and water release. I'm not saying you should put it as Yin-Yang release, by the way, I just think that using natural energy to instill life should be removed until confirmed. Also, sages don't control pure natural energy, they use sage chakra, so anything he would control would still have chakra in it. (talk) 02:08, April 13, 2012 (UTC)

I thought of Yang Release as well when I saw this technique. Not Yin-Yang Release, because this didn't create form, just animated it. Only more exposition or the next databook to clarify that. Exposition will probably come first, manga is probably near its end, and it wouldn't make sense for a databook to be released, leaving only a small part of the plot for a potential fifth databook.

I thought it was yang as well, I just didn't want to assume that it was that specifically, because others have different opinions, so I stated all of them and the way the sentence came out, makes it seem like I thought it was the combined element. Obviously, it was me that made the post, I just made an account.MangekyoSasuke (talk) 02:56, April 13, 2012 (UTC)

Considering it's Senjutsu, Natural Energy seems a much more likely source than Yang Release. Skitts (talk) 03:02, April 13, 2012 (UTC)

Sage chakra can be converted into any nature just like regular chakra. Kabuto also hinted he derived the technique from orochimaru's studies. Orochimaru wasn't a sage, so it isn't likely to be a jutsu that can only be used in sage mode. MangekyoSasuke (talk) 05:35, April 13, 2012 (UTC)
IMO this is best considered as Yang. —IndxcvNovelist (Talk to Me) 06:10, April 13, 2012 (UTC)
I'm well aware that Senjutsu chakra can have its nature transformed MangekyoSasuke. That has been shown since the chapter it was introduced. This technique (which wwas NOT said to have anything to do with Orochimaru) was said to go beyond manipulation with chakra. This could be Yang Release (which is supposed to deal with giving life), but considering it wasn't called Yang Release (which even in Sage Mode, characters use the nature type) and it's Senjutsu, there is just as much a chance that it accomplishes the feat with Natural energy. Also, given the fact that aside from hearing what the Sage did and the Wood Release's reaction to Naruo's Yang chakra cloak, we've never seen usage of Yang Release. Skitts (talk) 06:20, April 13, 2012 (UTC)
Have we ever seen a technique that's called either Onmyōton, Yōton, or Inton??? And I mean that in the "Wind Release: Rasenshuriken" way, and not like Yamato's exposition about non-elemental techniques. The author has given his readers just enough information to keep them busy on internet forums for a week. I've seen people arguing it's just an Earth release technique... or something similar to the toad stomach summoning. And you can't blame them. Take away Kabuto's words and it doesn't look all that amazing anymore.--Joolushko Tunai Fenta Hovalis (talk) 12:13, April 13, 2012 (UTC)
