This is the basic form of all summoning techniques. It is a space/time type ninjutsu. When summoning an animal it requires a contract, hand seals and the user's blood. The blood is used as a signature to make the contract, which can either be written on a scroll or tattoo to validate it. The hand that is used to make the signature with is used to summon. It should be noted that anyone can summon the animal as long as they have the blood from someone who has made a contract, along with sufficent chakra of their own. Animals are typically summoned from another location, for the toads it is from Myobokuzan‎. The target usually manifests itself after the ninja summoner strikes his hand or hands against any surface, afterwhich the specific summon will appear. As an alternative to the normal hand seals, the same contract that appears on the ground during the summoning can be drawn by hand and activated, producing the same result. The type of animal summoned is determined by the contract. The amount of chakra used to summon the animal is proportional to the size and power of the summoned animal. Once summoned, the animal can perform a task or help the user in battle.
