The user creates a gigantic wooden dragon, which they can use for a multitude of purposes including restraining a target, or for offensive purposes. The dragon that the user creates can vary in terms of appearance. While both instances created a serpentine dragon, Chinese dragon, though the first had a short trunk-like nose, while the other two later created did not. It also has the ability to absorb chakra from its target, slowly rendering them unable to use techniques by biting into the target and draining them almost in a vampiric fashion. In the anime, Hashirama was able to cause the dragon to detonate on his target, resulting in a large explosion.
Despite being a formidable technique, it was shown that if the wood dragon's head is destroyed, its ability to consume chakra is eliminated. Both Naruto Uzumaki and Kurama countered it this way by destroying the head with a Body Flicker Techniqueand Tailed Beast Ball combination respectively. Madara Uchiha would also counter it with his Susanoo, deflecting its attempts to drain his chakra with a sword.
