Kōton – Steel Release
Steel Release (鋼遁 Kōton) are techniques that can be used to make one’s body virtually indestructable by turning black steel. The user can also manipulate Steel ores with their chakra for other forms of manipulation. Due to its Metal elemental make up it is presumed that the user has masterd Earth and Fire release. Although there are other elements that use the same basic elements, Steel release is constructed of the opposite order to Lava release that uses Earth + Fire. For Steel this is using Fire as a representation of a Furnace and Earth release as the adding of a metal ore and using the fire to mold that metal ore into the steel chakra. It is a Kekkai Genkai shown to be used within the Naruto Shippuden movie 3 inheritors of the Will of Fire, by a shinobi called Hiruko who used his chimera technique to steal the Kekkai Genkai from an unknown shinobi.
