    Question about Kakuzu's ability(Jiongu)

    If Kakuzu takes the heart of a Kekkei genkei or tota user, could he use his abilities? For example, if he takes Onoki's heart, could he use Jinton?

    Re: Question about Kakuzu's ability(Jiongu)

    Very likely, since he gained the elements of the former owner :y KKG's are located in the shinobi's DNA (Kabuto gained Sakon and Ukon's KKG by getting their DNA) so I'd be very surprised if he wouldn't be able to use the KKG if the heart is from a shinobi with one.

    Nice example with Kabuto. So it means that Kakuzu can really be beast if he does that. Dat Kakuzu :scorps:

    No; I may mistake this, but it was not either overtly or inverted stated that Kakuzu had this ability. Only Sasori (Minus Kabuto) is capable of such a feature through Hitokugutsu.[1]

    Re: Question about Kakuzu's ability(Jiongu)

    I don't think so...it made it seem like he uses a heart to simply power the masks so it would just be used to power a mask. Now if he takes the element of the user...well he might have a mask that could use all three of his base elements in one masks....but I don't think he can use KKG

    Still, why wouldn't he be able to do it ? :shrug:

    I mean, when he implanted the hearts he was able to use the chakra nature of the shinobi who had it, why would it be any different with a KKG user ?

    It's identical to the Viz translation.

    Anyway; in theory, Kakuzu can steal other shinobi's Kekkai Genkai, but that element has not been actualized.

    Needless to say, the ability to perform it exist, but has not been realized.

    Kakuzu does possess the ability to do so.

    However; it does not exist.

    Ok i see your point, but i think that with the chakra element stolen, i see no reasons why he couldn't perform their techniques

    Re: Question about Kakuzu's ability(Jiongu)

    I've thought about this, and the most logical answer is no. Elemental Kekkei Genkai are essentially advanced manipulation of the basic 5 for a desired effect. e.g. Boil Release = Fire + Water. Kakuzu's masks are only capable of using one element, and no more than that.

    Furthermore, his masks are only capable of using their respective elements from the opening in their masks. This puts all non-elemental KG out of the question e.g. Sharingan and Shikotsumyaku

    The only real exceptions i see are Jiton (Magnetism Release), possibly Blast Release and maybe Dust Release.
