    Yin-Yang chakra manipulation

    The words yin&yang has been used in TWO DIFFERENT CONTEXTS in the series.
    • When yin&yang are used to describe the type of technique, kishi is referring to whether its a dark(yin) or a light(yang) chakra manipulation. Where dark(yin) chakra manipulations have more spiritual energy than physical energy and light(yang) chakra manipulation have more physical energy than spiritual energy.

    • The second case is when these terms are used with spiritual energy(yang) and physical energy(yin), the components that form chakra.


    From the manga the definition of yin&yang are revealed by Madara regarding So6P's Izanagi jutsu which uses both yin and yang chakra manipulation.
    • By administering imagination and spiritual energy which forms the basis of "YIN" power. He would create shape and form (Yin = The physical) from nothingness.

    • By administering vitality and the physical energy which forms basis of "YANG" power. He would breathe life (Yang = The Spiritual) into that form.


    The concept(Chinese in orgin) of how yin-yang works is based on a simple rule that one can't exist without the other, you may have heard of the famous phrase "For every Yin there's a Yang". Therefore dark(yin) and light(yang) chakra manipulations both count as ONE chakra manipulation as dark(yin) and light(yang) chakra manipulations BOTH need physical energy AND spiritual energy.

    Here are some examples of yin&yang use in the series;
    • One of the things So6P used Izanagi for is to create the tailed beasts, they have physical form as seen from the eight tails when his horn got chopped and the nine tails could be restrained(first hokage with wood, kushina with special chakra chains). They also have a conscience, the eight tails has a benevolent demeanor while the nine tails has a sadistic and violent demeanor all of which were created from the Juubi's chakra.

    • The fight between shikamaru vs Tayuya(sound 4 ninja), there was a dark(yin) technique used. It was explained because the technique's chakra has more spiritual energy the chakra tries to feed on a body(physical energy) it comes into contact with to balance itself.

    • And finally Jiraiya said Minato sealed the spiritual energy(yang) part of the fox's chakra within Naruto and the physical energy(yin) within the death god.


    NOTE:The Uchiha and the Senju have inherited the dark(yin) and light(yang) bloodline limits of the So6P but that doesn't meant those two clans are the only ones that can have an affinity torwards dark(yin)&light(yang) chakra manipulation or even use dark(yin)&light(yang) chakra manipulation. Having an affinity allows you to use strong jutsu in that chakra manipulation's field. All shinobi can use jutsu from all chakra manipulations but are weaker if they don't have an affinity towards that manipulation. Kakashi's analysis during the Kakuzu fight explains this well, based from all the shinobi we have seen so far you can have up to 3 manipulations. Nagato/So6P are the exception, as the rinnegan gives affinities to ALL 6 chakra manipulations.

    Now that we have a sound idea of how yin-yang works, lets apply this to jutsu we have yet to identify their chakra elements. The next three jutsu are special cases.

    Dark(Yin) chakra manipulation

    Now I'll go into some interesting techniques that involve yin power.

    Conclusions
    You probably noticed the pattern half way through this, that all the jutsus above have one thing in common that some form of yin and yang needs to be present, one can't exist without the other. In the cases of the light(yang) chakra manipulation there needed to be an existing physical form. And for Dark(yin) chakra manipulation need an existing life-form, where as we've seen with the sharingan techniques can have severe drawbacks on their body(physical energy).

    Don't forget that Dark(yin) chakra manipulation has more spiritual energy than physical energy, the chakra needs to balance itself. The more spiritual energy the chakra has, the more advanced the technique is in dark(yin) chakra manipulation and therefore the more physical energy is required to balance it. A variation of Izanagi used by the Uchiha is a prime example of this, after the technique ends the eye's tomes(the trade mark of an advanced dark chakra manipulation) disappears implying it used more spiritual energy it can manage and the eye lid shuts permanently rendering the eye useless to even use for normal sight implying the physical energy needed was equally too great.

    I'm beginning to suspect the Uzumaki clan have an affinity towards Yin-Yang chakra element. Naruto's skill with the shadow clone/henge jutsu (even Tsunade only part Uzumaki is very skillful with the henge jutsu and medical jutsu), Uzumaki kushina liked using the same jutsu as Naruto (Shadow clones, henge, summonings), also the death god summoning originated from the Uzumaki clan and finally the techniques Uzumaki Nagato used with his Rinnegan. With the same deductions I made with each jutsu above you can see that Rinne tensei which revives the dead is a (light)Yang chakra manipulation and gravity manipulation is a Yin(dark) chakra manipulation. Jiraiya during the fight with Nagato, wondered why he didn't use any elemental jutsu and he continued this trend when he invaded konoha despite having chakra affinities to all manipulations. I think this was the reason as to why.

    A lot of big things are gonna happen to Naruto one way or another and "that Jutsu" most likely is going to be it. It wouldn't surprise me this jutsu is an advanced yin-yang chakra manipulation and I think we all can agree on now, is that Yin-Yang manipulation is going to the thing you need to compete with Madara now.

    Interesting read. Since you wrote something about Yin power, where's the love for Yang?

    Doesn't Naruto harbor Yang powers as well? He does have the Yang part of the Kyuubi. Turning Zetsu clones to trees FTW

    What u mean, I wrote a heap about yang, infact theres more on yang then there is on yin.

    But I find yin seems quite intresting.

    The time that I posted my other comment, is when you had nothing on Yang. Interesting information.
