Is this page such a good idea? We know that Karin uses the Mind's Eye of the Kagura for her sensing, but how likely is it that all the other sensors we have seen all use the same technique, but a different technique than Karin? --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 18:39, December 29, 2009 (UTC)

Man we don't even know how other sensors track people. For all we know, its the same way Shino can feel people's chakra through his bugs. They could be sensing the chakra in the air, or they can probably even smell it.--TheUltimate3 (talk) 18:52, December 29, 2009 (UTC)
I actually created this page because i tried to put Fu, Ao and Shi's names on the Mind's Eye of Kagura page, but people said that we aren't sure that they use this technique...I also created this page so that there is evidence that they are capable of such a technique...Should Karin's name really be there?--NejiByakugan360 22:13, December 29, 2009 (UTC)


Does anyone remember when this debuted? I remember Inoichi mentioning sensing Nagato's chakra during the invasion, but we didn't actually see him use the technique. I think the first time we really saw it was during the Kage Summit, with Ao, C and Fū sensing Karin. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 21:39, December 1, 2010 (UTC)

No one replied, so I'll add things myself. It appears that this technique debuted in chapter 460, when C detects the vanishing chakra signatures of the samurai Sasuke kills. The time when Inoichi mentioned something about sensing Nagato in chapter 436, if I'm not mistkaken. I'll add chapter 460 as the debut. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 00:22, December 16, 2010 (UTC)
But don't all sensors use this technique? It'd be really tedious to pinpoint exactly when it was used. So i say either don't add any information to the debut field or just choose a time when it can be seen being used like you said with C.--Cerez365 (talk) 00:32, December 16, 2010 (UTC)
Karin doesn't. This page was created precisely because other sensors were assumed not to use the same technique as her. I put down the first time we saw it being used, since that with Inoichi, it was mostly mentioned. This is a technique article like any other, so I put what I thought was an appropriate debut.

I don't know if it was a different technique or this one but Kurenai used some Chakra Sensing Technique in the anime. Should I add her to the list? —This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) .

When?--Deva 27 (talk) 01:01, February 6, 2011 (UTC)

Episode 205, maybe. I can't remember the exact episode but its during the Kurama Clan Arc and she uses it to sense nearby ninja. But when you think about it, it makes sense, as all the rest of Team Kurenai are Tracker-NinYamanaka Ino (talk) 14:25, March 28, 2011 (UTC)

I don't believe that Kurenai has any chakra sensing technique. I remember seeing the episode, and it seemed to me that she just used the standard abilities that ninja possess to sense chakra. After all, any ninja can sense chakra to a certain degree.Ryne 91 (talk) 15:24, March 28, 2011 (UTC)

From what i saw i'd have to say no now. She probably just sensed another presence or heard them coming. --Cerez™☺ 15:48, March 28, 2011 (UTC)

She used 3 hand signs though. Yamanaka Ino (talk) 16:33, March 28, 2011 (UTC)

the hand signs where dog-rabbit-snake-tiger by the way. besides other ninja such as naruto (in a few instances) and ino (possibly) can sense large amounts of or particulary dark chakra. kurenai instead used the hand seals to sense the approaching ninja. (talk) 08:14, May 7, 2012 (UTC)

also kurenai weaved the signs before she detected the enemy ninja. (talk) 11:35, May 7, 2012 (UTC)

The problem I have with this page is that it seems to assume that every sensor except for Karin uses this technique. Isn't that a bit premature? Skitts (talk) 19:54, October 5, 2011 (UTC)

The reason this page exists, as far as I know, is because we don't know what technique they use to sense chakra. Karin's technique seemed pretty unique in the databook entry, at it's a hiden technique. Adding all other characters to that page would be strange. This is the solution we figured out. If we ever learn how each sensor senses chakra (which I find highly unlikely), we'll split them in the appropriate articles. For the moment, this is kinda like a general skill article, except it's not that general in the sense not everyone is a sensor. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 20:25, October 5, 2011 (UTC)


Should it be mentioned that at times, sensors appear to be able to use this technique passively? Skitts (talk) 19:58, April 10, 2012 (UTC)

"passively" o.O--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 20:50, April 10, 2012 (UTC)
As in using the technique without "activating" it; having it on stand-by. What Fu (the Root one) does when he's sensed by Karin at the Five Kage Summit comes to mind. Skitts (talk) 21:58, April 18, 2012 (UTC)
Ohhh. I don't really think that they can turn sensing off per se, it's just that they "concentrate" (forms seals and such) to get more range. Not sure though.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 22:31, April 18, 2012 (UTC)

From what we have seen, they are sensing all the time. As Cerez said, they are just controling the sensitivity of it--Elveonora (talk) 22:40, April 18, 2012 (UTC)


What about mentioning in the trivia that this is the most commonly used sensing technique in the series?Undominanthybrid (talk) 16:31, July 17, 2012 (UTC)

But suppose it isn't? Suppose we've been lumping all these people together and they use different sensory techniques? --Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 16:37, July 17, 2012 (UTC)
To better explain what Cerez means, is that this page is just a generic page. We began having other sensor characters only after Karin had been introduced, and her sensing technique was explicitly explained in the third databook. This page was created to avoid the speculation that other sensors would use the same technique as she does, which is considered hiden according to the databook. Should the characters listed here ever have their sensing techniques explained, they'd be listed in different articles. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 04:15, July 18, 2012 (UTC)

All ninja being able to feel chakra or sense it to a degree.

Is it true that all ninja can sense chakra to a certain degree, as someone suggested in the section, Kunerai??--Aeonophic (talk) 21:55, September 3, 2012 (UTC)Aeonophic

Yes. It's not a KKG or something, some are just more "sensitive" than others --Elveonora (talk) 22:13, September 3, 2012 (UTC)

Maybe that should be explained better. They comment on the feel of chakra however that is usually in response to large quantities of "malevolent"(?) chakra like that of the Nine-Tails. I haven't seen anyone do what sensors do and sense other, "normal" things. It's possible that all they're "sensing" is killing intent or something.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 11:51, September 4, 2012 (UTC)

Minato Namikaze

I don't want to start an edit war, but why is it so hard to just accept that Minato is a sensor-type. He performed the same trick to scan the area as Tobirama for one. Secondly, while Orochimaru and Sasuke did perceive the Nine-Tails to an extent, only Minato noticed the nature of Naruto's chakra being mixed with it. Steveo920, 14:39, February 15, 2013

He didn't recognize Obito, also I remember a filler character doing something similar, he likely felt vibrations or something. But to get technical, every person is a sensor to some extent, tho only those with an unusually high level of this perceptive sense are considered as such.--Elveonora (talk) 19:55, February 15, 2013 (UTC)

True, but Obito's body was almost entirely rebuilt from Hashirama's cells. In addition, notice that the other Hokage's didn't detect the chakra at all. Steveo920, 20:24 February 15, 2013

Steveo-shi has a point. Only Minato and Tobirama took note of the Chakras. (talk) 01:35, February 16, 2013 (UTC) Yomiko-chan

I have been silent for four months now, but I have to bring this up again. Minato is clearly a sensor-type. Hashirama was noted to be sensor-type despite his inferior skill to his brothers whereas Minato demonstrated at least comparable skill to Tobirama. Steveo920, June 15, 2013 22:02

If it came down to it, I think I would list him as a sensor but not because of what happened since he was reincarnated, but because he did the hand thing like Tobirama. Tobirama is also not a measuring stick, so Hashirama or any one else's inferiority to him doesn't make them any less of a sensor. Still, take Ino for example, she showed way more sensory skills and comes from a family of sensors, still she wasn't listed as a sensor until she did it "outright". I believe we will need another and clearer instance of him sensing.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 01:14, July 16, 2013 (UTC)

Madara didn't use his hands either but clearly showed himself a sensor-type when he detected Hashirama. Really, it's not that big a deal to add when there is basis behind it. It's not like saying Hinata or Karin are medical-nin because they used one technique. Steveo920, June 15, 2013, 22:46

So Madara sensing Hashirama, someone who he's literally fought multiple times, is considered sensing but Minato sensing Naruto and the Nine Tails mixing chakra from deep underground isn't? Mr JCM (talk) 07:19, August 9, 2013 (UTC) Mr JCM

The difference here is that Naruto's chakra in the NTCM was soo strong it could be felt even by non-sensor ninjas soo that example doesn't hold much water. Darksusanoo (talk) 12:42, August 9, 2013 (UTC)

Named or just a description?

Should we consider this named now when Tobirama says "I'm better at Sensing than you" in ch 623 or is that being viewed as descriptive? Arrancar79 (talk) 23:13, March 27, 2013 (UTC)

Technically, "kanchi" does mean "sensing", I can live with this being renamed "Sensing" and kept with an unnamed tag, since it is a description more than it is a name. Let's hear others. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 23:38, March 27, 2013 (UTC)

Named or just a description?, Part 2

Ino's new jutsu is called "Sensing Transmission", with Transmission coming from the Japanese word "Denden" and "Sensing" from the word "Kanchi". Since this technique offers another person to sense as well, shouldn't the Chakra Sensing Technique be called "Sensing", since the Transmission just basically transfers the original technique to another person. So basically, the standard technique is called "Sensing" (Kanchi). What do you think about it? (talk) 18:08, June 13, 2013 (UTC)

Uh no lets just keep it the way it is plus Chakra Sensing Technique is a good name b/c the user is sensing peoples chakras. Sensing Transmission is her being the brain of Shikamaru by linking her technique to him. Inoyamanaka98 (talk) 18:15, June 13, 2013 (UTC)Inoyamanaka98
Sure it is a fitting name, but only because somebody invented it since it was not named yet, so naturally the description that fits the most is used.

Remove the Manga Only tag from Ino

I want to point out that we should remove the manga only tag from Ino since she was able to sense chakra in Part I as well. Going by the reference on this page (#13, to be exact) from the last section, Ino mentions that Sasuke's chakra is different from when they were in the academy. During the confrontation, the only other one who seem to be able to tell anything from his chakra was Dosu but he only mentioned the amount of chakra he had instead of what it felt like.

Naruto and the Tailed Beasts

It's starting to look more and more like they can sense chakra. Kurama has mentioned sensing Madara's chakra when he tried summoning him and in the war filler Naruto has also mentioned sensing other peoples' chakra as well. --OmegaRasengan (talk) 07:44, August 10, 2013 (UTC)

But isn't it just filler content? I know he can sense malice but not so sure about chakra. As for the Tailed Beast, I would think Kurama would be able to tell who was trying to summon him, just the same way most summons do. As for others, I don't really know anyone other than Kurama who has sensed another persons chakra (Sasuke in the beginning) but Gyūki has mentioned being able to sense the other tailed beast and any differences they have (or something along those lines). Since they are living chakra, would that count? Joshbl56 08:37, August 10, 2013 (UTC)

I would add him but I wouldn't edit his article because I know the top boss editors on here would just revert it and argue --ROOT 12:37, August 10, 2013 (UTC)

Oh, right. The elitists... the fact alone that Naruto can sense chakra in the mode is only more evidence. But it came suddenly from nowhere, since originally it were just negative emotions. And a few chapters after Naruto pulled out a sensor in a filler, Kishi made it canon ._. --Elveonora (talk) 12:41, August 10, 2013 (UTC)

When Kurama senses Madara, whas him calling for it that is not clear sensing skill, Naruto can sense malice through Kurama, again, Kurama can sense malice, that is a sensor skill. Dan.Faulkner (talk) 13:33, August 10, 2013 (UTC)

If not malice, forget Kurama or Naruto as sensor types, Kurama felt Sasuke's chakra through Naruto, Madara's as well, and Utakata's, was that bubble that touched Naruto, all those examples were the direct effect of techniques. Dan.Faulkner (talk) 15:39, August 10, 2013 (UTC)

Named or just a description?, Part 3

By chance, I was reading the topic "Named or just a description?, Part 2", made by an anon last June and I have to say, it sounds logical to me. Since the last discussion just died off, I want to bring it back to life.

Basically, what was explained is that Ino's "Sensing Transmission" is an advanced version of the normal "Chakra Sensing Technique", with the "Sensing"-part being the basic jutsu ppl like Tobirama can use and the "Transmission"-part being the additional advanced part that makes "Sensing Transmission" an own jutsu. If the basic jutsu is used, the "Transmission"-part drops out, leaving the "Sensing"-part left which is therefore the technique's name. I hope I could explain it good enough...

I don't see why, it sounds completely reasonable to me. If the Transmission technique transfers the ability to do something and that what's being transferred is called "Sensing", the normal technique has to be called like that too.

With derived technique, do you mean Sensing transmission? If so, I think we can use the image for both, since Sensing Transmission is Chakra Sensing, just for another person who isn't able to do it alone. When we're at it, the image of Sensing Transmission isn't telling much about the technique either...Noweeaboohoo (talk) 19:03, March 5, 2014 (UTC)

Yes, I mean ST. No, they're not the same. CS is merely detecting others' chakra. ST is transmitting that perception to another person. They're very different things. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 01:44, March 6, 2014 (UTC)

They are different techniques, yes. The basic jutsu however is the Chakra Sensing one, because the transfer simply, well, transfers that ability to somebody else so he can sense too for a short moment. I propose to use the image I mentioned in the normal Chakra Sensing Techniue article. For sensing transmittion, we can use a slideshow of Ino putting her hand on Shikamaru's neck, followed by the next frame that shows their senses being connected to each other.

Tobirama and Minato

Tobirama is listed under both anime and manga because of the scene where he sensed the enemies around him with his finger on the ground, right? Why doesn't this count for Minato who did the same in both media as well? Noweeaboohoo (talk) 18:10, March 3, 2014 (UTC)

Putting your finger on the ground to detect/sense enemies, however, is not the same thing as the chakra sensing technique. If anything I would say the manga tag missing from Tobirama's name is the error here.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 07:24, March 4, 2014 (UTC)
Hm, I always thought the finger-thing was a variation of the technique. Well, I think Tobirama really is the issue here and needs to be listed as Manga-only. Because consistency rules. Noweeaboohoo (talk) 15:54, March 4, 2014 (UTC)
As I currently understand it, the finger thing isn't considered traditional sensing. Their sensing feats are as far as I can tell manga only for now, mostly starting when both of them were reincarnated by Orochimaru at the Naka Shrine. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 00:03, March 5, 2014 (UTC)

Is this just generic sensing?

-This isn't specific sensing techniques right? So wouldn't Karin's ability just be a more specific version of this? This article seems to be talking about sensing in general rather than a specific technique..... just a question, cause I don't really understand why Karin isn't listed here or Mito, heck, it seems that Naruto is also now an actual sensor--Deathmailrock (talk) 23:44, April 29, 2014 (UTC)

Karin isn't listed here because her technique was singled out as a specific one, and a hiden one to boot, so it makes no sense for shinobi from so many different villages to know the same supposedly hiden technique. This was created specifically to account for that. Mito and Naruto aren't listed here because their sensing doesn't work like this, it's not a more acute awareness and detection of chakra, they detect ill intent, and their sensing stems from being Kurama's host, something else that doesn't apply to anyone else. This article is for the most basic and stripped down version of sensing there is, which so far is what most sensors do. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 16:35, April 30, 2014 (UTC)

still unresolved

Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait.... it's the time to bring "that" topic up once again.

  • Naruto:
  1. Can sense negative emotions through Kurama
  2. Can sense chakra in Sage Mode
  3. Can also sense chakra in Chakra Mode
  4. Isn't a sensor
  • Kurama:
  1. How come isn't Kurama a sensor while Naruto can also sense actual chakra while using its chakra?
  • Minato:
  1. Does his sensing also stem from Chakra Mode like in case of Naruto? If so, why is he a sensor but Naruto isn't?
  • Obito:
  1. Of note is that he was first shown sensing while being the Ten-Tails' jinchuuriki. So why does that make him a sensor, but not Naruto?--Elveonora (talk) 17:47, April 30, 2014 (UTC)
Minato was a sensor before becoming a jinchuriki. And I'm pretty sure Kurama's ability is to sense negative emotions within chakra (as in senses both). Anime proves it, but manga only hints at it, so... Ten tails jinchuriki are also in a sage mode of a sort, so autosensing. MangekyoSasuke (talk) 18:02, April 30, 2014 (UTC)
While in Chakra Mode, Naruto said he sensed Minato and the others coming toward the battlefield, if I recall correctly. Since it's unlikely they were giving off "negative emotions", Chakra Mode seems to give him sensing as well, though he implied it isn't as good as Sage Mode's sensing when he attacked the Third Raikage. As for Obito, calling him a sensor type seems like a bit of a stretch, since his only example of sensing was detecting Amaterasu's buildup and he was in a senjutsu-empowered state at the time. If Obito really was a sensor type, would he not have simply said that's how he can find people and warp to them, rather than vaguely stating it's "within his power" to do so?--BeyondRed (talk) 18:35, April 30, 2014 (UTC)
Correct me if I'm wrong, but Minato's only sensing feat prior to becoming a jinch was putting a finger on ground. He could have sensed vibrations or something. And no, there's at least 1 instance in the manga where it was directly stated/shown that Naruto can sense chakra and he was using chakra mode at the time. Not exactly sure where it was, but I believe it was even Naruto himself who stated he could sense chakra. For Obito yeah, we either remove him as a sensor or add Naruto as one for the consistency's sake.--Elveonora (talk) 18:42, April 30, 2014 (UTC)
Not sure if we've ever actually seen Naruto sensing chakra while in Nine-Tails Chakra Mode, but in chapter 631 he explicitly says he could sense the chakra of the Hokage coming while in said form. Actually, there was also the instance in which we saw him sense Kinkaku's Nine-Tails chakra, if that counts. As for Minato, he senses Naruto and Kurama's chakra in chapter 620. Obviously, we know that anybody could that feel that, but him suddenly noticing it at the same time Tobirama starts sensing Madara's chakra seems to imply he's a sensor as well.--BeyondRed (talk) 18:56, April 30, 2014 (UTC)

Removing several characters

I would suggest removing several characters from this list 'cause of various reasons:

1) Naruto & Kurama. - They use their own specific sensing technique, just like Karin uses her's, and Karin isn't listed here. So we either should list Karin here or remove both Naruto and Kurama from this page and tag the Negative Emotions Sensory page with this technique as its parent technique.

2) Kaguya - Can't she just sense natural energy around her (like Naruto and others in Sage Mode)? Listing her is silly, since Hagoromo sensed when Kaguya was defeated, but he isn't listed as a Sensor. I believe she should be removed.

Several others could also be removed 'cause of various reasons, but these 2 are what stood out the most for me. Do you guys agree?--Omojuze (talk) 14:56, December 10, 2014 (UTC)

Naruto can use Sensing when he is in sage mode, I mean he did find Hanabi's location in the Last, so what do you have to say?--Mecha Naruto (talk) 07:58, April 23, 2015 (UTC)
Sage Mode itself gives the user un-normal sensing abilities, but it's never counted as "sensing".--Omojuze (talk) 07:59, April 23, 2015 (UTC)
The page already states unique sensing techniques that have appeared in the series. Sage Mode is a form of sensing, just not in the usual way, as is Kurama's "Negative Emotions" sensing ability. --Sajuuk [Mod] talk | contribs | Channel 08:05, April 23, 2015 (UTC)
And just today, Naruto was noted not being capable of sensing Boruto without Sage Mode.--Omojuze (talk) 08:08, April 23, 2015 (UTC)
Then he is not a sensor. Kurama is, by default, a sensor because of his ability to sense negative emotions, so there's no reason to remove him from the list. Naruto is not even listed on the infobox at all. --Sajuuk [Mod] talk | contribs | Channel 08:11, April 23, 2015 (UTC)
Naruto is listed as a sensor 'cause Negative Emotions Sensing, but he most likely can't sense Boruto because no killing intent.--Omojuze (talk) 08:13, April 23, 2015 (UTC)
Can't sensing be turned on and off? Naruto showed he can sense chakra without the modes prior to this, thus he is a sensor.--SuperSaiyaMan (talk) 02:44, May 31, 2015 (UTC)
Sensing can be turned on and off, refer to the flashback when Madara and Hashirama created the Hokage position. Tobirama didn't sense Madara near himself and Hashirama because he wasn't kneading chakra. And when has Naruto sensed chakra without a mode? Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 04:00, May 31, 2015 (UTC)
Moreover Minato didn't knew about Naruto(Last Shippuden Episode) until he used sensing. And about Naruto sensing without SM he himself noted that he sensed girls(Sarada and Chocho) since standing at the gates when they were hiding in the trees, atm SM was incative. ./ Rage gtx (talk) 05:03, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

The girls weren't exactly hidden from sight when Naruto left Konoha. No sensing required there. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 16:10, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

Naruto said "someone following me" if he saw them why didn't he recognize girls? ./ Rage gtx (talk) 03:19, June 1, 2015 (UTC)
There are other ways to detect somebody following aside from sensing their chakra. He could have heard them coming, caught a slight glimpse of them, even detected their scent. We saw characters track and detect each other back in Part 1, before sensing was even introduced as a concept.--BeyondRed (talk) 03:58, June 1, 2015 (UTC)
And all yours variations fails to be plausible suggestion because in every case except sensing Naruto has no means to determine that he followed by same persons who were stalking him at the gate. ./ Rage gtx (talk) 09:56, June 1, 2015 (UTC)
