Background: Kakuzu's abilities revolved around his unique body structure, which was composed of hundreds of thick, black threads woven throughout his flesh called Earth Grudge Fear, holding his body together like the stitches of a rag-doll. This allowed him to extend and retract his threads from anywhere on his body with ease.
Shortly after coming across Water Style: Starch Syrup Capture Field, Kakuzu realized that adhesive suiton chakra could be used in conjunction with his body structure to attain a new branch of Taijutsu which sought to eliminate the weakness of close range fighters.
Description on the Abilities and Inner Workings of the Style: The fighting style is based on fusing adhesive suiton chakra with his dark threads to enhance their combat capabilities. This is done through the user creating the adhesive suiton chakra on the target limb e.g. fingers and then unleashing dark threads from there, causing the threads to become coated in the adhesive liquid. This process is down so quickly, the two steps seem to be done simultaneously and so it can be done in quick combat situations without difficulty. Kakuzu’s natural ability to extend and retract his dark threads supplement this by allowing him to ensnare his opponent with his adhesive threads, perform complex Taijutsu attacks by attaching them onto his opponent and swing them around to achieve various effects.
The adhesive suiton chakra is expelled from within the user's body, converting a small portion of natural moisture into an adhesive liquid, which is then secreted from the user's glands in their fingers, wrists and palms. The adhesive suiton chakra completely soaks into the threads giving them their pitch black colour, whilst the threads are coated in a thick layer of adhesive slime. A unique property of the adhesive suiton chakra is it resembles oil more than it does water, making it incapable of conducting electricity/currents.
Kakuzu’s threads have already proven to be strong to be used to lift opponents without the threads breaking, allowing this to be a viable fighting style.
The fighting style itself is broken down into four main doctrines of combat:
1) The main use of the fighting style relies on using the sticky threads to attach the opponent and perform complex combinations. Once the threads attach to the opponent, the user can manipulate the threads with sheer strength to lift the opponent, swing them around in air, throw them side to side and perform far more complex maneuvers. This use mainly translates to grappling type offensives, using the sticky threads as a medium to do so. This in a way mimics puppetry, by using the threads as puppet strings to govern the movements of the opponent. Naturally, these type of attacks can only be created from the user’s fingertips, wrists or palms. The Taijutsu involved in this style will mostly utilize the sticky threads to pull their opponents towards them, slam/swing their bodies around and stringing together many different types of attacks.
Watch the below video from 0:39 onwards for a good representation of the fighting style
From the watching the video, you'll see this the fighting style itself is very taijutsu orientated. The user uses the adhesive threads as a means of pulling their opponent in for attacks, sequencing various mid-air combos, governing over the opponent's movements e.g. slamming them forcefully upon the floor. Stringing together various attacks both on the ground and mid-air is what his fighting style is all about, making Taijutsu combinations much more fluid and easier to perform in conjunction with eachother. This has many practical implications in close to mid range battles including the use of acrobatic maneuvers/attacks.
Basic Taijutsu maneuvers using the fighting style:
-Spinning the opponent repeatedly to cause dizziness
-Swinging around the opponent and toss them away
-Slamming them on the floor repeatedly
-Pulling the opponent in to land a basic hit e.g. punch, kick
-Swinging towards the opponent to land a basic hit e.g. mid-air kick
More advanced maneuvers using the fighting style:
-Swinging around the opponent before throwing them into the distance before firing multiple projectiles of sticky threads towards them
-Swinging towards the opponent, vaulting over them whilst flipping before lifting their body from behind your back to forcefully slam them into the ground in front of you
-Attaching the sticky threads to the opponent to toss them to the side before swinging towards them and dealing a lariat type attack to their throat.
One last benefit granted by this type of combat is allowing the user to fight efficiently against multiple enemies. Using adhesive dark threads from either hand allows the user to combat two opponents with ease and using them from individual fingertips allows for the user to fight against a maximum of ten enemies. The adhesive nature of the threads means sticking cords of threads together grant them the ability to withstand high levels of stress, meaning the cords aren’t easily broken when lifting opponents.
2) Another use of the sticky threads is to expel small adhesive projectiles e.g. balls of sticky threads. The main use of the projectiles is that they can be used to deflect the opponent’s attacks through holding their limb/weapon in place and using the force of projectiles to deflect attacks off of their original trajectory. Further building on this allows the user to deflect kunai, small weapons and gain the upper hand against Kenjutsu users. Kenjutsu users are at disadvantage against this style since the user is capable of disarming them from mid-long range.
The balls of sticky threads can only be shot from the user’s palms, through unstitching them to create holes. The projectiles can be used in quick succession, one after the other and from either or both of the user’s palms. The projectiles can be no larger than half the size of the user’s palm.
3) Due to their adhesive properties the threads are capable of sticking and weaving together into complex shapes and weapons. This allows the user to create weapons from their limbs and utilize them in combat. These weapons are physically attached to the user’s body and are retracted back into the user’s body after use.
The weapons can only be created from the center of the user's palms whilst outstretching their arms and retract a mass of adhesive threads which congeal into whatever weapon they seek to create. The weapons created via this method are wielded like swords.
4) The final use of this fighting style involves mid-air combinations and rappelling. Using the adhesive dark threads the user is capable of pulling objects/people towards them, but likewise can pull themselves towards people/objects. The user is consequently allowed to pull themselves towards the opponent, perform complex acrobatics in mid-air and rappel towards different parts of the terrain. Masters of this style are therefore granted increased agility due to becoming proficient in mid-air acrobatics.
The user can only utilize this fighting style from their hands, wrists and fingers, creating adhesive suiton chakra on the target location(s) and extending out threads from their body to perform attacks.
This style mainly entails gaining maximum skill in the art of evasion, using the opponent's position as a pivot point to vault over them, using the terrain to elude projectile-based attacks and dodge incoming Taijutsu attacks at the last moment.
(Kuro Amimono Gigei: Kyousou Tounyuu) – Dark Webbed Arts: Seismic Toss
Chakra Cost: 20
Damage Points: 40
Description: Kakuzu shoots out a sticky stream of threads from both of his wrists, sending the threads towards the opponent’s body. Once the threads attach to the opponent, he rapidly retracts the threads causing them to rappel towards the opponent in mid-air. Half way through their flight, the user vaults over the opponent’s position, using their body as a pivot to do so. Immediately after landing on the ground, the user conjures up all of their upper body strength to lift the opponent’s body from behind their back and forcefully slam their body into the ground directly in front of the user.
(Kuro Amimono Gigei: Kyousou Tounyuu) – Dark Webbed Arts: Rotary Clockwork
Chakra Cost: 15
Damage Points: 30
Description: Kakuzu shoots out a sticky stream of threads from both of his wrists, sending the threads towards the opponent’s body. Once the threads attach to the opponent, he pulls the opponent towards him and repeatedly spins the opponent's body over his head before forcefully slamming their body into the ground in front of him. The repeated spinning serves the purpose of dizzying the opponent, making them vulnerable to further attacks.
(Kuro Amimono Gigei: Shuujuku Suingingu) – Dark Webbed Arts: Skilful Rappelling
Chakra Cost: 15
Damage Points: N/A
Description: Kakuzu creates adhesive suiton chakra on a chosen target limb e.g. fingers, wrists or palms and then quickly unleashes dark threads from that place, causing the threads to become coated in the adhesive liquid. The adhesive suiton chakra completely soaks into the threads giving them their pitch black colour, whilst the threads are coated in a thick layer of adhesive slime. This process is done so quickly, the two steps seem to be done simultaneously and so it can be done in quick combat situations without difficulty. On creation, the threads are shot towards a certain location/object/person, pulling the user towards the desired location extremely quickly. Alternatively, the threads can be used to pull people/objects closer to the user, making this technique extremely useful in disarming opponents of their weapons.
Note: Sticky threads can only be released from the user's palms, fingers or wrists.
Note: The sticky threads can extend up to ten meters
(Kuro Amimono Gigei: Gizagiza Kujo Tama) – Dark Webbed Arts: Spiked Wrecking Ball
Chakra Cost: 20
Damage Points: N/A
Description: Kakuzu after outstretching either of his arms to his side, channels chakra through the dark threads within the outstretched arm. A mass of adhesive threads erupt from the center of his palm which immediately shape into a weapon which resembles a spiked cannonball with a hilt. The weapon is physically attached to the user's palm and its held from its hilt, much like one would do with a sword. The entire length of the weapon is two meters and the spiked cannonball two meters in width. Once the weapon pierces someone, the user can cause the individual threads to sporadically spike and branch out in every direction, impaling them in an innumerous amount of places.
(Kuro Amimono Gigei: Nechinechi Tama ) – Dark Webbed Arts: Sticky Projectiles
Chakra Cost: 10 (+5 for every pair of shots)
Damage Points: 20 (+10 for every pair of shots)
Description: Kakuzu creates sizeable holes in both of his palms, whilst outstretching his arms in front of him. As soon as he does so, he motions his right arm as if he's flinging something, shooting a projectile composed entirely of sticky threads towards the opponent. Immediately after doing so, he motions the exact same way with his left arm to shoot a replica projectile. These projectiles are shot at enough force to deflect punches, kicks, kunai and other small weapons. The shot projectiles will attach to anything they hit due to their adhesiveness, allowing the technique to be much more versatile in use. A maximum of six additional pairs of shots can be used fired by the user, with each pair being used in quick succession.
Additional effects and Restrictions:
-Can only be used by Kakuzu bios
-Must be taught by Negative Knight to learn the style
-Masters of this style are granted enhanced agility slightly above that of a taijutsu specialist
-Must be a Sannin or above to learn the style
