Godaidō operates by infusing the user's chakra into the natural forces that correspond with their elemental nature. For example, Nōsei can utilize this technique in order to infuse his energy into the air around him due to his affinity for wind. Unlike elemental ninjutsu the infused chakra becomes seamlessly blended with its natural counterpart, permitting the user of manipulating elemental forces purely with their will. Additionally, while the user must expend chakra for the infusion process, manipulating the infused element doesn't require any chakra input and instead operates on a cascading effect triggered through pristine chakra manipulation. Thus the user can potentially utilize the infused element several times, though doing so will eventually cause the user's chakra to diffuse out of the natural element. The rate that the diffusion occurs is dependent of the complexity level of elemental manipulation performed. Users of this technique can also detect any disturbances, of both physical and spiritual varieties, within environment elements that are infused with chakra.
In addition to simply shaping and manipulating natural forces the users of Godaidō can also perform enhanced versions of their elemental ninjutsu. Such variations of techniques don't require more chakra their their normal counterparts, but are stressful on the user's body draining their stamina. This is due to the fact that such performances rely on temporarily drawing in natural forces into the user's chakra pathway system and reconfiguring the energy into the particular technique. Since the environmental energy isn't completely compatible with the body it applies a degree of stress to the user. This can quickly lead to exhaustion if such techniques aren't performed with care. It has be observed that repeatedly flowing natural elements through the body causes the user's the chakra to take on a more natural signature, especially in the case of Nōsei. It is currently unclear what this is an indication of, though it has been proposed that Nōsei's elemental chakra could gradually be refining itself to be more aligned with natural forces.
