Shida Yūgure

After summoning moths from Onmyō Fields, Shida is capable of manipulating the hair-like scales of their wings, allowing her to sprinkle them wherever she wishes. This dust is capable of blinding an opponent if it gets into there eyes and the only way to restore their sight is to wash the scales out with water. Shida is also capable of manipulating the scales even without any moths present, though she is incapable of creating any herself. Because of this, she keeps large quantities of scales withing small jars so that she can access this technique with ease. These scales are also highly flammable and burn extremely quickly. 

Even as a genin Shida was highly skilled in this technique, being able to coat her own clothing in the substance without it getting in her eyes. She was also capable of coating her opponents with Moth Dust without their knowledge in order to later set them on fire or blind them at the perfect moment. 

Trivia

  • This technique is based on the old wives tales where moth dust causes blindness.
