Naruto Shippuden is a Japanese anime and manga series that has captured the hearts of millions around the world. Jutsus are one of the most fascinating aspects of the series and are essentially ninja techniques used by characters in the show.

There are various types of Jutsus such as Water-style, Earth-style, and much more. Each has its unique abilities, but one particular category that stands out is the Inferno-style Jutsus. These combine the fire nature and lightning nature chakra of the user, allowing them to create Black Inferno-infused Jutsus.

These techniques are known for their incredible power and destruction, making them a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield. In this article, we will look into the world of Inferno-style Jutsus, exploring their origins, unique characteristics, and some of the most notable examples from the Naruto Shippuden series.

A close look at top 5 Inferno-style Jutsus in Naruto Shippuden

1) Inferno-style: Flame Control

Flame Control is also known as Kagutsuchi. It is a powerful technique that falls under the kekkei genkai, Ninjutsu, and Dojutsu classifications, and can be used for both offensive and defensive purposes. However, it can only be utilized for short to mid-range combat. Flame Control is a powerful Fire-style Jutsu used by Sasuke Uchiha.

This technique allows Sasuke to manipulate the flames produced by his Amaterasu Jutsu. Sasuke can shape the flames into various forms and even control their movements with Kagutsuchi. This makes it a versatile and deadly technique that is difficult to counter.

Sasuke uses his right eye to manipulate the flames while casting Amaterasu from his left eye. hE can be seen using Kagutsuchi in episode 203 of Naruto Shippuden to protect himself from the attack of Raikage.

2) Inferno-style: Honoikazuchi

Inferno-style: Honoikazuchi is a formidable technique in the Naruto franchise that was first used by Sasuke Uchiha in Episode 476 of Naruto Shippuden. This technique is classified as Kekkei Genkai, Ninjutsu, and Dojutsu and utilizes Fire Release nature. It is both an offensive and defensive technique, with a short range.

The technique is an upgraded version of the Inferno-style: Flame Control and is exclusive to Sasuke Uchiha. To use the technique, the user first covers his surroundings with Amaterasu and turns the flames into spikes that can stab anyone close by. The name Honoikazuchi comes from a thunder god who was one of eight born from Izanami’s chest in the underworld.

3) Inferno-style: Susanoo Flame Control

One of the most impressive feats that Sasuke can accomplish with Kagutsuchi is covering his Susanoo and Amaterasu. This technique creates a shield of black flames around Sasuke’s Susanoo, making it an impenetrable defense against low-range attacks. This is an offensive Jutsu and it has an all-range reach.

Sasuke can be seen using Kagutsuchi on his Susanoo in Episode 326 of Naruto Shippuden. Using this Jutsu, Sasuke can make weapons from the black flames in his Susanoo’s right hand. The Sword of Kagutsuchi is one such weapon that can stab, slice through things, and burn them to ashes. The technique’s ability to produce lethal weapons from the black flames of Susanoo makes it at par with the abilities of the tailed beasts.

4) Inferno-style: Yasaka Magatama

Yasaka Magatama, also known as Yasaka Beads, is a powerful Jutsu that Sasuke Uchiha uses. By using the black flames in his Susanoo’s third hand, Sasuke can create many magatama projectiles quickly.

These projectiles are made entirely of the black flames and can be thrown at long range. When they hit a target, it forcefully throws them off their feet and quickly burns them to ashes. This technique is derivative of the Inferno-style: Susanoo Flame Control.

5) Scorch-style: Nimbus Tempest

Scorch Style: Nimbus Tempest is a powerful technique that combines Naruto Uzumaki’s Wind Style: Rasenshuriken with Sasuke Uchiha’s Inferno-style: Flame Control. This creates a perfectly balanced wind and flame ratio, resulting in a swirling mass of black flames that engulfs whatever it hits.

This technique is used in both large-scale and smaller-scale versions depending upon the nature of combat. In the large-scale version, the technique combines Naruto’s Ultra-Big Ball Rasenshuriken with the arrow of Sasuke’s Inferno-style: Susanoo Flame Control. The smaller-scale version combines a normal Rasenshuriken with black flames to form a flaming pinwheel.
