Fire Style: Fireball Jutsu in Naruto

A fire style jutsu that has been iconic to the Uchiha clan for generations, Fire Style: Fireball Jutsu (Katon: Gōkakyū no Jutsu) is used mostly by the Uchihas throughout the series. This jutsu is created by storing chakra in your mouth and then converting it into fire as you blow it out. The more chakra you store, the larger and more intense it is. It often leaves a crater behind so most of the displays and practices are done near or over water bodies.

Creation and History of Fireball Jutsu


<span class='entity-link' id='suggestBtn-3'>Itachi Uchiha</span> using <span class='entity-link' id='suggestBtn-21'>Fire Style</span>: Fireball Jutsu in Naruto


Fireball jutsu is a signature ability of the Uchiha. It is not known who exactly created it, but it is seen used even by Madara Uchiha, which means that it is an age-old ninjutsu. This technique is kind of a rite of passage for the Uchiha and thus it is required for an Uchiha to learn it before they are recognized as one.


Uchiha Madara using Fire Style: Fireball Jutsu in Naruto


Sasuke Uchiha is seen practising this jutsu in the anime and uses it on multiple occasions. He uses it even as an adult. His brother, Itachi Uchiha mastered the technique on his first try. Obito Uchiha is also seen using this jutsu, although in a weakened state as a child during a competition.


Fireball Jutsu Variations


Every jutsu has its own variations, modified by the user. For rasengan, there is the Odama Rasengan, Rasenshuriken and more. Fireball jutsu also has such modifications in the anime, manga and games. Here are some of the variations:


Fire Release: Great Fire Annihilation

This jutsu forms a sea of flames which engulfs a large area. It is used by Madara Uchiha. Unlike the fireball jutsu which is round, this is more flat and in a rectangular fashion.


Fire Release: Great Fire Destruction

This jutsu is only a little different from the great fire annihilation. While the Great Fire Annihilation covers more area, this jutsu works in a similar fashion but covers much lesser area with greater intensity. This is also used by Madara Uchiha.


Fire Release: Great Flame Flower

Another variation of the Fireball Jutsu used by Madara Uchiha. He spits out smaller bits of intense flames at the sky, causing it to rain fire in a large area.


Fire Style: Fireball Jutsu – Susanoo Powered

This is the same Fireball Jutsu, but Susanoo is using it to make it seem like a tailed beast bomb. While it is much weaker than a tailed beast bomb, it is still enough to wipe out an entire army. This variation is seen used by Sasuke Uchiha.
