    The list of properties to be used for the data fields has not been specified properly.

This jutsu produces a powerful seal that is used to block or disturb the flow of chakra in a target. Once the seal is completed, the target will become unconscious and unable to fight for a short time. Orochimaru performed this jutsu to tamper with the seal on the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox. The original seal allowed the Nine-Tails' chakra to seep out into Naruto Uzumaki, but the additional seal disturbs this, preventing Naruto from using the Nine-Tails' chakra or even controlling his own chakra properly. This is because an odd-numbered seal creates an imbalance when placed on top of an even-numbered seal. When Orochimaru later notices that the seal has been removed, he remarks that there are very few ninja capable of doing so.

Trivia

  • The "Five Elements" referred to in the name of this technique are the Chinese Five Elements, the Five Movements (五行, Japanese: Gogyō, Chinese: Wǔxíng):
    • Metal (金, Chinese: jīn),
    • Wood (木, Chinese:),
    • Water (水, Chinese: shuǐ),
    • Fire (火, Chinese: huǒ),
    • and Earth (土, Chinese:),

instead of the five chakra elements used in most other techniques, the Five Greats" (五大, Godai):

    • Earth (土, tsuchi),
    • Water (水, mizu),
    • Fire (火, hi),
    • Wind (風, kaze),
    • and Lightning (雷, kaminari).

This suggests the elements are merely symbolic.
