Name: Hachimon (Eight Gates)
Range: All Ranges
eight chakra gates are eight specific points on a person's chakra
circulatory system. They limit the overall flow of chakra within a
person's body. The basis for the idea of the chakra gates comes from
the body's limits on the functions within it. This makes the body much
weaker, but it keeps the body from expiring too soon. By opening these
gates, the user can surpass their own physical limits at the cost of
extreme damage to their own bodies. Rock Lee is able to open the first
five gates. Guy, who taught Lee the skill, is able to open at least
six. Kakashi can open at least one gate, as shown in during Kakashi's
one-handed rock climbing where a shot of his brain shows the relevant
point activating. The gates and what they release are listed below:
Opening (Initial) releases the brain's limit on the total strain on the
muscles, giving the user five times their normal strength.
(Heal / Energy) releases the brain's limit on the body's stamina,
making a battle-worn person become miraculously ready to fight as if
the fight had just started.
3. Life is located on the spinal cord,
and releases the limit on the nervous system, which makes information
travel at a faster rate and creates even more stamina. As a side
effect, the user's skin turns red, indicating an increased blood-oxygen
4. Pain (Harm / Wound) releases the limit on oxygen intake in the lungs, creating much more oxygen for the body to use.
5. Closing (Limit) releases the limit on the amount of chakra released at one time.
Joy (View) removes the limit on how much fat and proteins the
intestines can digest, and releases otherwise useless energy resources,
giving the user even more power and stamina.
7. Shock (Wonder /
Insanity) removes the limit on how fast the body can move, removes
wastes from dead skin cells to feces, and gives the body a much cleaner
system to work with, producing even more power and stamina.
opens the final gate located at the heart and uses up all of the body's
energy. It makes the heart pump at maximum power and exceeds the power
of every other gate. All the energy in every individual cell is used
up, giving the user power well above that of any Kage. This "big bang"
effect is only temporary, and destroys every muscle in the user's body.
Death is assured when opening this gate.
