|Smoke Release: Shroud|
|Name||Smoke Release: Shroud|
|Hand Seals||Dog → Tiger|
This jutsu converts the Chakra stored within the users body into a thick black-colored smoke that is normally spewed from their mouth and nose into the air. As the name suggests, the jutsu shrouds the user and a large amount of their surroundings with the smoke; making visibility poor and allowing the user to quickly make their escape or attack from cover.
While not its usual function, the smoke also serves to benefit the Nara Clan's Shadow-based jutsu as shown by Kenji's usage of both jutsu to increase the range of his shadow while at the same time hiding himself from view.
