Forbidden Jutsu in Naruto


Kinjutsu, also known as Forbidden Jutsu, is a classification of Jutsu. Jutsus that are so powerful or dangerous for the user are banned to be used or taught are classified as Forbidden Jutsus. This classification of jutsu came into existence after the end of WarringState Period. The newly formed villages came to an agreement to forbid the use of certain jutsus to maintain peace between villages and keep the bloodshed to a minimum.


Kinjustsu can be any form of jutsu from Ninjutsu to Taijustu. One of the signature moves of the protagonist of the show, Naruto Uzumaki, is Multi Shadow Clone Jutsu which is also a forbidden jutsu.

History of Kinjutsu



When the concept of the Hidden Village System was introduced and marked the end of the Warring State Period, it was mutually agreed upon by the leaders of the Hidden Villages to ban the use of certain jutsus and to forbid their teachings. They hoped that this would help in maintaining peace between the nations and reduce unnecessary bloodshed.



Although teachings and use of these jutsus are forbidden, hidden villages still possess the knowledge of these jutsus and how to use them. This knowledge is passed down from generation to generation. Naruto Uzumaki learned the Multi Shadow Clone Jutsu from the Scroll of Seal.


Scroll of Seal is a document with details and instructions for all the Hidden Leaf Kinjutsu and is passed down from generation to generation and it is the duty of the Hokage to protect it from the wrong hands.


There are several reasons why a jutsu can be classified as Forbidden Jutsu. Some of those reasons are


  1. Techniques that violate the laws of nature like Edo Tensei no Jutsu, which has the ability to reanimate deceased individuals.


  1. A technique that costs the user his/her life as a sacrifice or any other kind of sacrifice like Reaper Death Seal, which seals away the soul of the user.


  1. Techniques that are capable of large-scale destruction like Tsuchigumo Clan’s Fury technique in the anime.


  1. Uchiha Clan classified Izanagi and Izanami as forbidden jutsu because it blinded the Sharingan eye of the user that was used to cast the jutsu.


  1. Techniques that require a huge quantity of chakra and can cause a user’s death by consuming all of his/her chakra. Multi Shadow Clone Jutsu is a forbidden jutsu that requires a massive amount of chakra and can cause a user’s death.


  1. Techniques that can risk a user’s life it used, like the Reverse Lotus technique used by Rock Lee.
