Each elemental spirit can be controlled by Kakuzu either when within his body or outside. For outside the mask will burst the stitches on his back and then emerge to fight alongside him.

He turns this ability on and off by slapping his stomach. He has to make sure and stagger his attacks, to allow him a moment to brush off any accumulated satetsu. If he remains in the "on" position for too long, the satetsu will cover his body, smothering him.

Denji Genmu - Electromagnetic Visions:

After magnetizing his body, Jiga will draw in satetsu which he will disperse over his target. An electric current will pass between the particles, affecting the target's brain function. Because the brain uses low voltage impulses, the impulses will be disrupted causing their mind to short circuit. They will be temporarily stunned, allowing Jiga to attack with his other weapons.

After magnetizing a spot of iron behind his target, Jiga will break nearby rock and ore with his mace. This ore will be thrown into the air and be drawn to the magnetized spot. If needed, he can strike more times to launch further waves of attacks.

Jouki Boui Character Use: Nidaime Mizukage
Rank: -
Range: Close (0m ~ 5m), Mid (5m ~ 10m), Far (10m+)
Type: Attack, Supplementary

Jouki Boui
Jouki Boui is a unique Suiton used by Nidaime Mizukage. Nidaime Mizukage has the ability to create a miniature child-like clone of himself which is made of an outside coating of oil, with an internal container of water. The malleable quality of its being allows it to change shape and create cutting implements with its body. The clone is capable of ultra-fast movement, so fast that when it moves the outside coating of oil begins to heat up. As it heats up, it causes the water inside to boil, evaporate and create steam. This steam allows the clone to then expand and grow until it reaches a large size and explodes. The resulting explosion has massive power, capable of leveling even the hardened prison of Sabaku Soutaisou. After the explosion, the vapor will cool as it rises and hail will begin to form in the sky. This will cool the clone which has coalesced back into being, and shrink it back to normal size. Once the hail stops, the steam explosion process can begin again.

When one seeks to combat the clone, they should focus on locating Nidaime himself instead, as using the jutsu puts him in a weakened state. It's possible to defend against the clone explosion using a protective barrier of sufficient strength like Gaara's Shield of Sand. It's also possible to slow down the clone by inserting a heavier material inside its body, as Gaara inserted his gold dust into the clone. When the clone began to heat up, it melted the gold and fused it together with its body. Then utilizing the combination of hail within his sand, and gold's natural conductive qualities, the water cooled to stop a steam build up, effectively neutralizing the clone.

Jujutsu • Shijihyouketsu is a Ninjutsu used by Akatsuki member Hidan. This Kinjutsu was the creation of the Jashin religion, an evil god cult of which Hidan is a member. As long as Hidan kills, his body will not die. This jutsu allows Hidan to inflict whatever damage his body takes onto his opponent. Hidan will first form a Jashin symbol on the ground. Hidan will next draw blood from his opponent; the usage of his ranged scythe will help in this step. He will then consume the blood of his opponent to begin the ceremony.

With the blood consumed his body will darken and form a skeletal deaths head outline on his body. Then by placing himself within the circle of the symbol, any damage he takes while within it will also be felt by the opponent whose blood he consumed. Hidan will use a pike to cause self-inflicted damage which transfers to his opponent. If he steps out of the circle, the connection ends and his opponent can damage him with no ill effects on themselves. Note that this technique does not appear to be tied to Hidan's general ability to not die. Keeping with his strict religious nature, if Hidan wins his battle he will finish out the technique with a thirty minute long prayer ceremony by laying on the symbol with the pike through his chest. With this process his body will lose its skeletal outline and it will regain its natural appearance.
