Magnet Release (磁遁, Jiton) is an advanced chakra nature kekkei genkai which allows the user to convert chakra into magnetic forces and magnetise an object. Much like the name implies, Magnet Release follows the basic applications of magnetism, being that its affects metals to a much greater extent than non metallic objects. It is unknown where it originates from but both Sunagakure and Kumogakure possessed users of this kekkei genkai in the past. It is unknown what elements this nature entails but its likely its related to Lightning Release.
Much like Lava Release, Magnet Release has been shown in different ways in the manga, mostly because unlike a normal elemental nature KG release, you need a medium to actually produce the techniques. Its the medium that is magnetized and manipulated that enables the KG to have 2 advanced applications of it: Iron Sand and Gold Sand.
The regular use of Magnet Release was seen used by a ninja from Kumogakure, Toroi. Toroi would magnetise special large shuriken which he used to attack the enemy. When the thrown shuriken comes into contact with any other object, it causes the struck target to become magnetised. One hit to the body will cause a magnetic field within the said body, making it an easy target for any further magnetised weapons to be drawn to it. However, each time the magnetism is transferred, it weakens.
- To make a Toroi bio or a Custom Magnet bio, one must be Jounin Rank and have started training in Lightning Release. Custom Magnet bios come from Kumogakure or Sunagakure.
