Users

Hibana

The Vanishing Soul Technique is a Space-Time Ninjutsu created by the Third Mizukage, which allows the user to instantaneously transport themselves to a location within a certain distance of the user.

Overview

To activate the technique, the user places the "technique formula" on their body. After this is done, the user will be able to transport them self to any location that they can see within 15 meters of them. Each transportation causes one of the black circles to disappear, indicating that a maximum of twelve transportations can be done before the seal has to be reapplied.

Usage

Hibana

While not as skilled with the technique as its creator, Hibana demonstrated incredibly use of the technique. Her most commonly used tactic would be to rush an opponent only to teleport to one of their blind spots at the last second and strike them with her unique sword Sazanami. She would also use the technique to dodge normally unavoidable attacks or even escape from imprisonment (if her chakra was not suppressed). Overall her use of the technique caused the Hunter-nin to scout her after she got promoted to chūnin.

Drawbacks

Aside from the difficulty of mastering this technique, this technique has a far shorter range than many other types of Space-Time Ninjutsu. While it is technically not necessary to "see" the intended destination, it is dangerous to transport to a location that you cannot see, for example transporting to another room only to be impaled by various weapons that the user did not know where there. Another drawback is that only a maximum of twelve teleportations can be done with one formula. After that the user has to reapply the formula to themselves (which takes time) before being able to teleport again. Lastly it takes three seconds for the whole teleportation process to finish so the opponent has a small window of opportunity to prepare themselves to counterattack or dodge.

Trivia

  • Hibana has stated that this technique, while useful is vastly outclassed by the Flying Thunder God Technique.
  • The character in the formula stands for Vanishing (消失).
