Temari using a Wind Release technique.

Wind Release (風遁, Fūton, English TV: Wind Style) is one of the five basic elemental nature transformations. Most offensive Wind Release techniques are performed by making chakra as sharp and thin as possible, however, wind can also be generated as a large, concussive force to overwhelm a target. Wind-based techniques are mainly short to mid-ranged offensive techniques that combine brute force and keen precision to deal cutting and slashing damage. A rarity among the five chakra natures,[1] wind techniques are usually performed by generating air circulation and can be enhanced through this method as well.[2] Wind-natured chakra can also be channelled into blades to increase their cutting power and overall range. The wind affinity is seemingly more common amongst shinobi of Sunagakure. Wind Release also specialises in deflecting and even reflecting attacks. Wind Release focuses on projectile type techniques and can even change melee type techniques such as the Rasengan into projectiles when adding wind nature transformation to them.

In Sasuke Shinden: Book of Sunrise, a stronger form of Wind Release is introduced called Typhoon Release (颱遁, Taiton, English TV: Typhoon Style). This kekkei genkai is used to summon storms that mow down the surroundings and are strong enough to move entities like Sasuke Uchiha's Susanoo.

    • The reason Typhoon Release doesn't show up in the kekkei genkai page is because that page is populated automatically by transposing ...
    • Yeah, I think that's what we've agreed. I've just put a note about it in the trivia section, as an alternative.
