Ōkami Akiyama

This technique covers the body in compacted earth, in a very similar way that Gaara's sand does. However, this technique is done in layers, and forms scales. Like Gaara's technique, it requires a large amount of stamina to maintain and when chakra is running low, the scales become more apparent; where they are normally not seen when chakra flow is good. When Ōkami uses this technique, he can only maintain it for one hour, before he needs to release the technique. Kasumi is continually maintaining her armour unless she is certain she is safe, or her chakra supplies are low.

This technique covers the entire body except for orifices such as the mouth, eyes and ear canals. It mostly stops penetrative attacks, and can sustain damage such as minor cuts and scratches. It is much more inferior to Gaara's sand armour.

Trivia

  • The original concept came from a combination of Gaara's armour and Kasumi's former dragon theme.
  • Rough forms of the jutsu were created by her ancestors. It was slowly improved through the years.
  • It becomes less effective against water release techniques, which makes the user slow from the added weight.
  • Since Kishi doesn't know pokemon, lightning release techniques are also effective against the user.
