The Crystal Release (晶遁, Shōton, English TV: Crystal Style) are techniques that manipulate crystal. It is used by Guren and others. Using Crystal Release, the user can crystallize anything around them, turning everything into a weapon. Its power to solidify targets can go down to a cellular level. This element appears to regularly use a Ram hand seal. Crystals for the Crystal Release are summoned through any surrounding, making everything a weapon for the user. The only apparent weakness of the Crystal Release is that it cannot crystallize raw chakra, allowing a person with enough chakra control to resist being inwardly crystallized.
