The Demonic Illusion: Snake Bind Death is a B-rank, Supplementary Genjutsu technique used by Anko Mitarashi. This technique is a variant of Kurenai Yuhi's Demonic Illusion:Tree Binding Death . At first, the user will appear to dissolve into hundreds of small snakes that will slither away or burrow underground. After a short period of silence, hundreds of large snakes, both in thickness and length, will erupt from the ground around the user's target and fasten themselves on him/her, making the target resemble a living snake tree of sorts. The user will then appear right above the target and finish him/her off with either a kunai knife or a weapon of his/her choice. Kurenai Yuhi helped Anko develop this technique and appears to be able to break it very easily. This technique is noted to be broken only by the target's pain, due to the target's arm being restricted. Thus, the target cannot preform the hand-seal for "Release".
