Kakuzu's lightning-element mask emits lightning in the shape of a spear from its mouth, which then pierces the enemy. Its destructive power is great enough to even pierce through rock; meaning it has a high killing potential. The user can increase the number of spears to attack multiple enemies. This, coupled with the sheer speed of the lightning, makes it a difficult technique to evade. This technique is capable of being focused into a straight beam, similar to a laser.

When Anjin Uzumaki uses this technique, it is more focused and bluish and is emitted from his outstretched palm.

When Stryse Kazami uses this technique, it is emitted through his fingertips and palms, much in the way of the Chidori Sharp Spear. He can also use it with both hands at the same time.

One way Tsuki Uchiha uses this technique, is by closing one of her smaller fans, and channeling the lightning through the fan.

When Makkāsā uses this technique he exhales lightning in the form of a spear from his mouth.

Susano'o Uchiha uses this technique from his shakujō.

When Mitsuki uses this jutsu, he is capable of shooting the lightning from the palm of his hand(s) which takes on the form of a snake that travels in a zig-zag formation.
