Kirin (麒麟, Kirin) is an extremely powerful lightning technique created by Sasuke Uchiha. Sasuke draws lightning directly from thunder clouds to supplement the power of his strike and controls it with his chakra. Unlike most lightning techniques, which are based on the user's chakra, this one uses natural lightning. If there are no active thunder clouds, the user must create them by using powerful fire techniques to produce the necessary storm conditions. After the preparations are done, the technique can completely leave a crater in its wake.
