How It WorksEdit

The user envelops the surrounding area in a dense mist, reducing visibility within the affected area. The density can be controlled by the user, allowing them to create a mist so thick that even they can't see through it.


Loss of eyesight, leaving the opponent open to surprise attacks.


Byakugan users can see through the Mist. Also, practitioners of Wind Release will be able to blow the mist away. The mist does not negate the sense of smell or hearing either.


A distraction and to set up the opponent for the next attack.
