the user first gathers lightning to their hand; the high concentration of electricity produces a sound reminiscent of many birds chirping, Once the chakra is gathered, users charge at their target and thrust the Chidori into them, piercing them and typically causing fatal damage.

The Chidori is a high concentration of lightning chakra around the user's hand. Despite the sound it makes, the rapid speed at which it's used makes it useful for assassination.

The speed at which the Chidori is performed, despite being one of its greatest assets, also represents one of its biggest drawbacks: users move at their target so fast that its causes a tunnel vision-like effect for them. Because they charge in a straight line it is easy for opponents to attack them, and because of the tunnel vision it is difficult for the user to see these attacks, much less react to them.

  • This is a Charge attack
  • The opponent takes 2d10/3 caster levels points of damage upon successful hit.

Having Epic Jutsu Focus (Lightning) allows the user to apply change in shape to chidori to create the variant jutsu without expending jutsu slots.
