|Name: Chidori Current (千鳥流し, Chidori Nagashi; Viz "Chidori Stream"; Literally meaning "One Thousand Birds Current")
Type: A-rank, Offensive, Defensive, Short range (0-5m)
User: Sasuke Uchiha
Debut (Anime): Shippuuden Episode 52
Debut (Manga): Chapter 308
A variation on a regular Chidori developed by Sasuke Uchiha during his two-and-a-half year training with Orochimaru, this jutsu allows the user to generate non-focused electrically charged chakra from his body, instead of concentrating it in his hand. Because the electricity isn't focused, it doesn't kill on contact, instead only paralyzing its victims. By sending the current into the ground Sasuke can stun opponents from a distance. Sasuke can also channel the electricity through metallic weapons like his Kusanagi sword, increasing their cutting power, as well as making body parts cut by them numb.
