| Name: Raiton (Lightning Element)
Special Items: -
Description: A elemental tree that focuses on manipulating the energy known as lightning. Techniques from this tree are often powerful and have different utility effects but they seem to require a large chakra source.
- Raiton: Seidenki Dageki (Lightning Element: Static Shock)
Description: A technique often used for training more than actual combat. The shinobi is taught the basis of conducting electricity and using chakra to amplify it to the point where it can harm some one. The shinobi rubs his hands together until they produce a normal size static shock and use chakra to increase the strength by a very minute. Upon having their hand come within one foot of an enemy a small but visible bolt of static electricity is released. The bolt isnít strong enough to actually damage the enemy other than make them yelp but it causes the limb to twitch slightly. Not stun or paralysis them, just make the limb twitch.
- Raiton: Yure Ranpu (Lightning Element: Flickering Light)
Description: A very simple technique that is used as a signal flare more than anything. The shinobi causes his body to light up like a blue streak of lightning for up to two posts. The light cannot blind anyone, cannot harm anyone, and the shinobi cannot move while it is on. While the technique is active he can turn the light on and off really fast for morose code or signs.
- Raiton: Hibana (Lightning Element: Sparks)
Description: Raiton: Hibana is often used to create small fires than actually hurt someone although that doesnít mean it doesnít have its offensive moments. The shinobi creates a surge of chakra to his index finger and his thumb. Upon snapping them a wave of small sparks is unleashed capable of causing slight burns, starting fires, or blinding an enemy.
- Raiton: Raikou Touza (Lightning Element: Lightning Current)
Description: The shinob transfers an electrical current into their weapon or a projectile so that upon the next hit it can cause a slight shock. The real use of this technique is that when someone blocks it with a metallic weapon it travels through their weapon and shocks them anyway.
- Raiton: Mahi Dageki (Lightning Element: Paralysis Shock)
Description: The shinobi creates a visible ball of electric energy in the palm of their hands. Upon coming within a foot of their target the ball erupts out into a very visible and very fast beam capable of knocking a shinobi over. If it makes contact the shinobi is stunned for one post and if held out the shinobi is stunned for every post it is held. Neither the enemy or the shinobi holding it can move if it is held out for more than one post. (Can be held out for a max of three posts)
- Raiton: Raikou Sen (Lightning Element: Lightning Beam)
Description: The first real offensive technique of this tree. The shinobi concentrates chakra into their fist and releases it in the form of a concentrated blue beam which travels at the speed of a projectile. Anything touched by the beam will suffer a very painful shock and a first degree burn.
- Raiton: Raikou Hirate (Lightning Element: Lightning Palm)
Description: The shinobi slams both of his palms into the ground and sends a surge of chakra into it. Once the chakra leaves the body it instantly turns into lightning which travels extremely fast across the ground. When touched by the lightning an enemy will be launched into the air and suffer several painful burns on their feet or legs. Two may be launched at a time and in separate directions if one wishes.
- Raiton: Heki (Lightning Element: Burst)
Description: An odd technique that can be either defensive or offensive. The shinobi releases a surge of chakra from their hands that extends out to about two feet and spreads up and down covering the entire width and height of the body. Anyone hit by the technique will be caught in a massive shock capable of continuously shocking them for two posts or if used in a defensive manor it can block ninjutsu up to 15k chakra. Obviously a taijutsu user wants to avoid this technique.
- Raiton: Kusari Raikou (Lightning Element: Chain Lightning)
Description: A powerful technique that officially marks the devastation of this tree. The shinobi releases a very fast arc of lightning from their hands capable of causing second degree burns to what ever part of the body it hits. After it hits the lightning can either chain off to another body part or a totally new shinobi. It can jump up to three times before dying.
- Raiton: Kouatsu (Lightning Element: 20,000 Volts)
Description: A dangerous, yet powerful jutsu. The user concentrates enough lightning onto their own body to create a field of 200,000 volts on themselves. While when first created they will be shielded from the lightning, that shield will soon break. Before that happens they must release the energy into something else. Simply getting close to someone is enough to transfer all of it.
Description: A very famous technique often used in assassination plots. The shinobi uses an entire post to charge their hand with lightning causing it to release the energy in every direction. The next post the shinobi can plunge their hand into a target and because of the lightning it is capable of cutting nearly any substance. Raikiri may only be used twice a thread, three times if the shinobi reaches 75k chakra.
- Raiton: Raiu (Lightning Element: Lightning Storm)
Description: A very powerful jutsu. It creates a thunderstorm by the user. Unlike with normal thunderstorms, the user can aim where, and how often, the lightning strikes. The downside of this powerful jutsu is that it takes almost all of the chakra of the user to perform, and if the user loses their concentration the storm will run out of control.
