This defensive technique is formed by Gaara to create a toy-like replica of the Shukaku that is roughly twice the size of himself. Because the replica is formed under extreme pressure and is built of the strongest minerals it is virtually indestructible, having yet to be penetrated by any force. The attack variant of the Ultimate Absolute Defense is the Ultimate Absolute Attack: Shukaku's Halberd.
