Plasma Release (火遁, Katon, English TV: Plasma Style) is one of the advanced elemental nature transformations. It is performed by moulding superheated chakra inside the stomach while lightning and air build up before releasing via lungs and mouth. There are also variants to this in the form of some mediums such as the use of gun powder, ash, explosive tags and chakra flow into a weapon to heat it up and add lightning onto it.
Commonly affiliated with the Lion & Tiger hand seal, Plasma Release consists of short to long-ranged offensive techniques that cause combustive and explosive damage. The art of having the flames and lightning obey the user's will is considered outrageously difficult.
