Deidara was an Iwagakure shinobi. He learned Explosion Release from Oniki who was a member of the Explosion Corps. Even though he was praised for his clay sculptures, Deidara wanted to reach greater heights for his art, which made him steal his village’s kinjutsu that allows a person to knead chakra into their desired shape. He uses explosive clay against his enemies. From that day onwards Deidara became a bomber and offered his services to many different countries.
Deidara’s way of working caught the eye of the Akatsuki. They sent Itachi, Kisame, and Sasori to recruit him but Deidara refused to accept their offer. Itachi then challenged him, stating that if he won, they would leave him alone but if Itachi wins, Deidara had to join them. Itachi easily defeats Deidara with his Sharingan, and Deidara joins the Akatsuki where he was partnered with Sasori.
Their first mission was to get rid of Orochimaru for betraying the organization. When they arrived in the Land of Wind, they witnessed Orochimaru performing the Impure World Reincarnation, but he retreated as his technique was incomplete. Deidara tried to kill him by blowing up his base after which he and Sasori searched the ruins, but they weren't able to confirm his death as they couldn't find a body. Deidara went back to Iwagakure and destroyed it by planting a bomb and flying away.
Deidara hadn't forgotten how Itachi had beaten him with his Sharingan, and so he loathed him for the rest of his life. He knew that Itachi was a very powerful opponent, so he trained a lot aiming to get revenge on Itachi. He also created C4.
Deidara is seen using the Shadow Clone Technique and can be seen merging it with his other techniques. Deidara possesses Explosion Release and this allows him to use both Earth and Lightning chakra. He also possesses a special mouth on each of his palms and the left side of his chest. The clay he uses can be molded into a variety of shapes and forms, and he can also change their size by infusing them with chakra and he could also control them at will. He can also create live explosives for long-range attacks.
He can create clones and detonate them, which he uses in surprise attacks. He can even control them as minions. He is usually seen with his bird which he uses for transportation and infiltration. Deidara wears a scope on his left eye which helps him observe from a long distance and to counter genjutsu. He had done this so that he could counter Itachi’s genjutsu and defeat him when they fought again.
After creating a shadow clone, Deidara puts some explosive clay for it to explode. He uses this as a diversion or to help him escape. This explosion is so strong that it can destroy an entire forest. This technique requires good usage of verbal tricks.
It is made with ceramic clay that is found in the Ceramic Village, and this helps the user knead their chakra into materials. The chakra influences the amount of power that will be in the attack. These explosives are palm-sized and are easy to prepare before combat. They can also be made in various sizes and shapes.
This is the highest form of Deidara’s explosive clay. It is a suicide bombing technique that is kept as a last resort. After he undoes the stitches on his chest’s mouth, he feeds it a large ball of clay. As it has a direct connection with his heart, a large amount of chakra is built. The explosive chakra manifests in his veins and flows through his body. The blast radius of this attack is ten kilometers.
In this technique, Deidara uses his actual mouth instead of the ones present on his hands to create a giant doll. When the doll ruptures, a cloud of microscopic bombs enters the bloodstream of anyone who inhales them. They detonate on command and disintegrate the enemy's body, turning them into dust.
It is a half seal that is used to activate ninjutsu. It is used to concentrate chakra, and many shinobis use it. Deidara uses it whenever he detonates his explosive clay. It is not used in battle.
