|Earth Release: Terra Armor|
|Name||Earth Release: Terra Armor|
|Hand Seals||Tiger, Boar, Ram, Rat, Ox|
After forming the required hand seals the user slams their palms into the ground and stone spreads quickly over their body to form a rigid armor that protects the body of the user from physical attacks. Chakra may be infused into increase the density of the stone, in return increasing the defensive properties of the armor but at the cost of further loss of speed. When deployed masterfully the user can manipulate the stone coating their body to attack as well, forming spikes to attack at close range or firing small spikes from the tips of their fingers to attack long range at the cost of some of the armor. The armor will lessen the physical damage taken by the user and can also be used to draw out poisons from within, infusing the stone with it through chakra use. The density of this armor restricts the user’s range of motion slightly and also negatively impacts speed, but physical strikes such as punches and kicks do increased damage. When enough damage is taken the armor will crumble, turning into sand. The user can prevent this by replenishing the stone of the armor by simply touching rocks or bare ground. The armor may be worn indefinitely due to this effect but at the cost of range of movement and speed.
