This is the article on the release based on physical energy that governs life. For the combination of the earth and fire natures, head to Yōton.
Nature Icon Yang

Yang Release (陽遁, Yōton, Viz: Light Style)[1] is one of the two nature transformations that exist outside of the elemental circle, along with Yin Release. It is based on the physical energy that governs vitality and is created by altering the ratio of spiritual and physical energy in favour of the latter.

Yang Release can breathe life into form. When combined with Yin Release, it allows for the use of Yin–Yang Release.[2] Yang is depicted as white in the manga and blue in the anime. The Six Paths Yang Power is represented by a sun marking on the wielder's right palm.

Yang was first mentioned in name by Yamato during Naruto Uzumaki's nature transformation training.[3] The Akimichi clan's Multi-Size Technique falls under Yang Release. Being descendants of the Sage of Six Paths through his younger son, the Senju clan predominantly inherited Yang Release.

Kyubi Chakra Mode

Naruto's original Nine-Tails Chakra Mode, which uses Kurama's Yang chakra.

Yang chakra is also part of the tailed beasts' chakra. During the Nine-Tails' attack on Konoha, Minato Namikaze used the Eight Trigrams Sealing Style to seal the Yang half of the fox's chakra within Naruto.[4] Whenever Naruto is in Nine-Tails Chakra Mode, Wood Release techniques react to the Yang chakra's vitalising properties and mature into full-grown trees within a matter of seconds, either through contact or close proximity.[5] This was also shown to have the same effect on White Zetsu, whose genetic make-up is similar to that of plants.[6]
