- Smoke Ninpou
The user of these techniques is able to freely convert their chakra into a semi-solid Smoke state. Using control and technique the user is able to attack, defend or suppress others with this smoke. A silent killing tool of the finest quality.
Smoke Ninpou is the art of rawly converting chakra into Smoke for the use in battle or shinobi operations. Smoke is a versatile element that relies on control and practice, as it is hard to simply make 'happen' out of nowhere.
Smoke has certain rules that it follows. These are listed here:
- Smoke Ninpou takes an ability slot.
- Smoke users must have average Ninjutsu or higher ninjutsu
- Smoke must have a focal point in or on the user's body. It cannot be created externally.
- Smoke has a limited lifespan as far as chakra goes. The chakra inside smoke lasts for, roughly, only as long as the original jutsu. Once the technique it was used for ends, it becomes inert and cannot be utilized in any way without either direct contact or control via Kinesis or Fuuton
- Smoke Jutsu that does not immediately fade must have a post count where it fades. This post limit is equal to your (Stamina+Control)/2. For instance a Genin with 3 stamina and 3 control has smoke that lasts 3 posts.
- Smoke travels at the speed of your Control. It only travels in a straight line unless influenced by outside sources.
- Smoke cannot be controlled to any fine degree such as changing direction, or homing in on targets without Fuuton affinity. It also cannot cause heat without Katon affinity. It can however be made to change shape without any elemental affinity.
- Smoke is weak against Fuuton techniques since they move it opposite the creator's direction. Smoke however is strong against Katon techniques, as it suffocates and smothers them at the same time.
Smoke's main properties are weight, density and impairment. It is a heavy element but it is aerosol and remains airborne. It usually impacts with a fair amount of force, though it loses momentum with every hit unlike most other ninjutsu. It is also incredibly dense unless otherwise stated, usually requiring fair strength to move through the smoke. Finally, most smoke techniques displace the oxygen in the air and make it both difficult to breathe and to see. This however also affects the user of these techniques unless specific techniques or modifications are made to allow the user to filter smoke from the air or see through smoke. This is usually a secondary effect of most smoke techniques that linger in the air but some sacrifice this for a stronger impact or other secondary effect.

After performing several hand seals, the user gathers chakra in their mouth and forces it out at a target. The ball of smoke is roughly the size of a baseball and it hits a target with the same amount of force as a 3 strength punch. It travels up to 5 meters at a speed of 4. When it hits something solid it then expands into a cloud of smoke roughly 3 feet tall and two feet wide that envelops anything it hit. This smoke is roughly as hard to see through as a thin fog and stays in the place it expanded for a period of posts equal to the user's [stamina+control]/2.

Gathering chakra in their throat, the user performs several hand seals and then holds their breath for up to stamina/3 posts. If they start moving or performing complicated or strenuous actions, they run out of posts twice as fast. Once they are within range of the target they exhale a sticky and thick cloud of smoke into the opponent's face. This smoke can travel up to 2 and a half meters. When it hits a person, it clings to their skin via chakra and covers their face or any solid surface it hits. The smoke is very blinding, roughly the same as having a cloth hood pulled over one's head and it makes breathing much more difficult. Due to the nature of the technique, it fades much quicker than normal Smoke techniques, only lasting 3 posts maximum.

Performing a hand seal, the user channels a small amount of smoke into their throat and then spits it out. The smoke takes the shape of a senbon roughly the size of a finger that flies up to 4 meters. When it hits an object, it causes a punch comparable to a hit with two strength and then explodes with the force of 1/2 an exploding tag, spreading a wispy cloud of smoke over a 2 meter area around the point of impact.

Forming hand seals and channeling chakra into their hands, the user puts their hands up and a thick cloud of smoke erupts from the pores of their hands in front of them in a circular ball shape that doesn't move. The ball of smoke is roughly four feet in diameter and acts as a shield. Those with less than 3 Strength cannot bypass it in one hit, small weapons such as kunai, senbon and shuriken are not only stopped but caught inside the smoke. The shield lasts one post and when it dissipates, any objects that entered it will fall to the ground. [color=lightgreen]Fuuton[/color] coated weapons or jutsu will pass through every easily however.

The user does the needed hand seals then puts their hands to their throat. They then cough up a small cloud of smoke that drifts over to their target at a speed equal to the user's control stat up to 6 and only moves in a straight line. If the cloud catches up to the target then it attaches itself to the target's arms and legs and immobilizes them. If the person captured has a strength higher than 5 they can break the smoke. The smoke cloud can broken up also by most [color=lightgreen]Fuuton[/color] techniques. This smoke lasts for the user's (control+stamina)/2 posts. Once this technique is broken, the cloud is essentially broken up into a thin and transparent fog of sorts that has no combat value.

Prerequisite: [color=orangered]Katon[/color] Affinity
Taking in a deep breath, the user mixes smoke and [color=orangered]Katon[/color] chakra to form a ball of smoke roughly the size of a baseball that they then exhale from their mouths. It moves at 7 speed up to 20 feet and when it hits a target, it impacts with a strength of five. Contained inside the smoke ball is a thick fireball that, when the smoke is ruptured, ruptures as well and engulfs a 2x2 area in a powerful and rapid fire that can cause 3rd degree burns and scorch stone. The fire lasts only a single post however.

Channeling smoke chakra into their palm, the user performs hand seals and then thrusts their palm out at a foe. An arm-wide cloud of smoke bursts from their hand and extends up to 10 meters away at a speed of 8. When it hits, it hits with a strength of 6 and immediately condenses on a foe's body in the form of a thick cloud that grabs them in the smoke. Those with less than 6 strength will be unable to break free of the smoke. In addition, because of the density of the smoke, it is extremely difficult to see during the capture. The smoke lasts until (control+stamina)/2 posts have passed.

Prerequisite: [color=white][b][Ninja Art • Gray Bag Technique][/b][/color]
Forming the hand seals needed, the user then takes a deep breath and then spreads their hands out to their sides. Using chakra control, the user then exhales a concentrated fog of smoke that spreads out in a ball shape around them. It takes a diameter of roughly two times their height and width and the smoke forms a thin but compressed layer around them. They have some oxygen inside the smoke shield, but not a lot. The shield can outright stop most thrown weapons, now including katanas and large kunai blades or even some medium sized stones. The shield lasts for as long as the user exudes the chakra needed to control it but no matter what size the person is, the shield only traps in enough oxygen for 3 posts at best.

Prerequisite: 9 Control
Performing several hand seals, the user of this technique takes in a deep breath and then draws their hands back, palms out, to either side of their chest. They then exhale rapidly, sending out a thick cloud of black smoke that expands rapidly, from the size of a basketball when leaving the mouth to nearly 10 foot in diameter. At a speed equal to the user's control stat, up to a maximum of 19 it moves up to 15 meters in a straight line and when it reaches a target, the user closes his/her palms into fists. The smoke cloud rapidly compresses on the target object trapped inside it with a strength of 9 from all sides. Those without at least 9 strength themselves cannot hold back the smoke. The cloud is inescapable but the user cannot move while using it either. The cloud's pressure lasts for only 2 posts or until the user moves. Once the technique ends, the cloud rapidly expands back into it's full size. This technique must be controlled and if the user breaks their focus on it or releases the 'fist', the smoke cloud ends prematurely.
