Re: • Raiton with Lili •
Why thank you very much. Also send your kudos to Scorps, my partner in crime, and Reborn, my Sempai, for helping me with the training and molding it to what it is now

These are a list of Lightning Chakra techniques that don't quite fit the rest of the methods. They employ different properties of the Lightning Element, such as it's mere conductivity, or using lightning technique to manipulate other lightning techniques or even natural lightning, by changing the polarity of one's technique (Most commonly, the famous Kirin). To be more specific, in this method, I'd teach you every technique, so you'd clearly note the differences. But since you already know everything up to A rank, just think of this method as the method of the jutsus that didn't quite fit the other ones xD
(Raiton: Kirin) - Lightning Release: Kirin
Chakra Cost: 40
Damage Points: 80
Description: After using Dragon Fireball Jutsu to create thunderclouds in the sky, the user will use Chidori to take control of the lightning above. They can then make the lightning strike an opponent in the blink of an eye.
Can only be avoided with time/space techniques. Can only be used once per battle.
You are able to gather the natural lightning in the air (Case there's a thunderstorm above your heads), by creating a chidori on your hand (requires a technique). After you gathered all the lightning, you will give it the shape of a massive dragon, the true form of the Kirin, and you then lower your arm, bringing it down at once, upon your opponent. The technique itself, and that's what grants it the time/space restriction, is that, once you give it the order to drop down, it will move at light-speed, as it is natural lightning and not Raiton, in it's essence. But that's simply the time-frame between making it drop and hitting your opponent. Although it should take little to no time to make the chidori and gather the lightning (especially if you use the chidori on the previous turn), your opponent can, and should, react to the kirin as you do all those things. It's a small time-frame, of course, but an experience enough opponent would be able to release any sort of fast acting technique, even throwing a couple of handseals before he has to deal with the light speed of the drop.
Now, if there aren't any thunder in the air, you need to create it yourself. Again, this requires natural lightning, so it must be done by heat, and not by a Lightning Jutsus. To do so, the fire technique needs 2 conditions: 1. Be B ranked or higher. 2. Be Long-ranged. If the technique meets those conditions, you need to shoot it at the sky, which will drastically increase the temperature of the air, causing a dis-balance of the water-moisture, and creating thunder clouds. Common rule, you need to preform the fire technique in the previous turn you attempt to use the Kirin, so, first you create the fire and then, if your opponent failed to block the fire, you can create the lightning. Of course, if you don't make the Kirin yourself, then your opponent will be able to use it before you. For example, if your opponent allows the fireball to meet it's end, but then preforms a jutsu that forces you to block it on your first move the next turn, he can use that time to preform the chidori before you do and hit you with the very lightning you created.
This also means that a good counter to Kirin is using Kirin at the same time as your opponent, forcing the Kirin to fall between the both of you, instead of right on top of you. At least that's how I've always viewed it.
(Raigen Raikochu) – Lightning Illusion Flash of Lightning Pillar
Chakra cost: 40
Damage points: N/A
Description: After performing the following handseals Ram → Horse → Snake → Tiger the user will then create a blinding light that appears to emanate from the users body and blind the target/s.
This is basically using your lightning chakra, spreading it throughout your body and creating a surge of bright light that can easily blind anyone in range. Its useless against Byakugan and Sharingan users though. (Rinnegan is uncertain). Why? because this is a pure flash of light and those eyes can see pass light and focus on chakra. Its a good technique to hide an attack such as kirin for example. Or to run away safely if you feel outmatched. This technique does not cause electrocution, does not cause numbness, it merely focuses on the lightning's ability to produce light. though, if you are underwater, it is debatable if it will short-circuit all the same. I'd say it's best if you clear out of it. (though don't give anyone hardship for attempting it, if you fight them. It's an arguable matter and so, while you, for having been taught by me, will need to abide to the no water restrictions, other might not. Though luck for you, I might say xD)
