Talk No Jutsu[]

Naruto Uzumaki performing Talk no Jutsu on Obito Uchiha (Somehow worked...?)

Believed to be a founding principle of the original Ninshū created by Hogoromo Otsutsuki The Sage of Six Paths. Talk no Jutsu (Art of Talking). With it, he can talk to the evilest, depressed, and twisted people and make them change their entire lives in minutes. Which is canon... Totally and proven to be the most powerful jutsu in the series.

This jutsu was confirmed by Kishimoto, the creator of Naruto, to be by far the most powerful jutsu of all and said it was inspired based on the time when his therapist performed a talk no jutsu-style exorcism on him.

This jutsu was taught to Naruto by his mentor Iruka Umino when he tried to save Naruto even though the latter was blamed for the death of the former's parents. Talk no Jutsu also seems to be Iruka Umino's only jutsu. In chapter 655, it is revealed that Naruto's mother, Kushina Uzumaki, also had a talent for Talk no Jutsu, but it does not disclose to what extent Kushina can control this jutsu. It is hinted that Hinata Hyuga also has a penchant for Talk no Jutsu when she forces Naruto to question himself after Neji's death. Talk no Jutsu can be activated by uttering a specific word, which, when used repeatedly, results in the controlled person and Naruto entering Talk no Jutsu dimension and the target falling deeper into the jutsu. For example, Naruto's activating word is Dattebayo, Kushina's word is Dattebane, Iruka's activating word is obviously Naruto. Boruto's Dattebasa hints that he similarly possesses the genetically inherited predisposition for Talk no Jutsu.


Apparently, the TnJ (and the resistance to it) can be passed on to the next generations. This can be seen with Asura descendants Hashirama and Naruto possessing natural TnJ talent while Indra descendants Madara and Sasuke are mostly impervious to TnJ. There is also reason to believe TnJ can be inherited vertically, with Boruto inheriting his father's ability.


Asura Otsutsuki[]

Asura, one of the sons of Hagoromo Otsutsuki, is noted to be the inventor of TnJ. With his friendly personality and his mantra of relying on others for his strength, Asura was primed at a young age to develop TnJ. This was first seen in the filler episode when he convinced villagers living near the God tree to rely on themselves for their prosperity. This technique was so momentous that it set up the Naruto universe; Asura's success with TnJ convinced Hagoromo to choose him as his successor, leading to Indra's jealousy and betrayal and culminating with their continuous reincarnations as Hashirama and Madara and eventually Naruto and Sasuke. Ironically, Asura's failure in TnJ - ing Indra was also the first recorded failure of the technique.

Naruto Uzumaki[]

Naruto's TnJ is widely thought to be the most successful in the entire Naruto universe, with a near 100% success rate that is broken by Madara Uchiha. Itachi is the only known person to successfully use the TnJ against Naruto: Naruto wanted to end the war all by himself but Itachi managed to TnJ Naruto that he should not shoulder everything himself or he will fail. This innate strength is likely due to Naruto being a descendant of Asura--the creator of the original TnJ thousands of years ago.

TL;DR Naruto says Dattebayo and TnJ acitvated, this won’t work on some people through inherited immunity,

Against Zabuza[]

The first recorded use of TnJ (appearance-wise) was observed during the Land of Waves Escort Mission Arc when Naruto talked to Zabuza Momochi. He said a few sentences about how Zabuza shouldn't treat Haku like a tool, culminating in Zabuza crying and sacrificing himself.

Against Neji[]

Naruto used TnJ in the Chunin exams second phase against Neji. Naruto continuously used small bits of TnJ on Neji throughout the fight and then blasted a finishing TnJ-enhanced uppercut punch right up at him. When Neji was lying on the ground defeated, Naruto slipped in a little bit more TnJ to finish him off. By the time Neji was taken to the infirmary, TnJ had already inflicted permanent psychological and emotional damage.

Against Gaara[]

During the Konoha CRUSH arc, Naruto next used TnJ against Gaara. At first it didn't work, so he had to fight it into him with a TnJ enhanced headbutt. The TnJ seems to be transferable as Gaara gained the TnJ ability after his encounter with Naruto though his technique still leaves a lot to be desired.

Against Tsunade[]

In the Search for Tsunade arc, Tsunade was subjected by Naruto, whose attitude reminded her of Nawaki and Dan, going into flashbacks until she could hardly grasp for breath. While it was not clear whether Naruto used TnJ on her, due to an absence of an extended philosophical and ideological dialogue, it is speculated that Tsunade fell for the TnJ variant: Remind - me - of - my - loved - ones - no - jutsu so hard that she became Naruto's fangirl, placing her utmost important treasure and faith in him and even almost got herself killed by Orochimaru to protect him.

Against Sai[]

During the first 60 episodes of Naruto: Shippuden, when Sai, Sakura, Yamato (Kinoe, Tenzo) and Naruto went to save Sasuke , Sai tried to betray them but Captain Yamato captured him. Naruto started using TnJ on him when Sai talked about how scary Sasuke seemed and how little he cared about Naruto, and Naruto talked about how he didn’t care about that. He said he would give up his whole body just to save Sasuke. “I don't care who I have to fight! If he rips my arms out, I'll kick him to death! If he rips my legs off, I'll bite him to death! If he rips my head off, I'll stare him to death! And if he gouges out my eyes, I'll curse him from the grave! Even If I'm torn to shreds, I'm taking Sasuke back from Orochimaru!” Sai didn’t understand but was moved anyway. Ever since then, he got closer to Team Kakashi/Yamato.

Against Nagato[]

One of the most momentous displays of TnJ was seen during Pain's invasion when Naruto confronted Nagato in person. When normal TnJ was not able to budge Nagato, Naruto created a new variant of it called Sage Art: Talk no Jutsu and Sage Art: Flashback no Jutsu. This new TnJ variant, fueled by the natural energy of the earth, was so strong that it convinced Nagato to commit suicide and revive all those he had killed during the invasion.

Against Killer B[]

Prior to the start of the Fourth Shinobi World War, Naruto used TnJ on Killer B to make the latter train him. When proven to be ineffective, Naruto invented another strong variation of TnJ called TnJ: Brofist no Jutsu. This variation is a special one since it did not contain the toxic dialogue of merchandising. He bolstered this with a little Rap no Jutsu to convince the rapper jinchūriki and it worked like magic. You must also note that naruto used another version of this technique called TnJ: Improvised Oiroke no Jutsu which blends the sexy technique and the talk no jutsu for maximum effect on men but for unknown reasons(most likely due to his willpower) it did not work causing Naruto to resort to the brofist no jutsu

Against Kurama / Kyuubi[]

The universal effectiveness of TnJ was in full display when Naruto was able to make the Kyuubi submit to his ninja way. Naruto told the bloodthirsty Kyuubi that he'll "do something about [Kyuubi's] hatred". As the Kyuubi--having been inside Naruto since his birth--is very familiar with TnJ, the usual variant of the technique was rendered moot. This marks the first time when TnJ alone was insufficient to subdue the target. With knowledge on the origin of the tailed beasts, Naruto sought to finally control Kyuubi by evolving the jutsu to one that's actually useful: Action-speaks-louder-than-talk-no-jutsu (ASLtTnJ) combined with the I-will-remember-your-names-no-jutsu (IWRYNnJ) on display when he freed the other tailed beasts from the reanimated jinchūriki. Since then, the Kyuubi (now known as Kurama) has unquestionably joined forces with Naruto. ASLtTnJ was so effective that Kurama and Naruto ended up referring to each other on a first-name basis.

Against Obito[]

Obito Uchiha is the only known Uchiha to be TnJ-able by Naruto. Unsurprisingly, mere TnJ was inadequate and Obito ends up strangling o. In response, Naruto developed Punch no Jutsu, bringing Obito to a new level of TnJ. Using a combination of TnJ and Flashback no Jutsu augmented with a synergy of Sage Mode and Tailed Beast Mode, Obito was punched so hard that he was put into flashback and started to TnJ himself back from his sociopathic and puppy love-inspired emo worldview.

Note that Obito had a variant of the talk no jutsu. It was seen only once when he convinced Kakashi to help him save Rin. Obito never used it again as it seemingly does not work after said Uchiha falls victim to the Curse of Hatred. It is thus observed that an Uchiha's inherent immunity to TnJ gets nullified when their lifelong dream of being Hokage gets triggered by the combined attack of TnJ and Flashback-no-Jutsu.

Against Sasuke[]

Aware of the dangers of TnJ since the first-day meeting Naruto, Sasuke secretly worked on his own version of TnJ and also an Anti-TnJ. The resulting technique was Emo Style: Edgy Kid no Jutsu. Thanks to this, he was able to resist this powerful jutsu. This worked flawlessly for 15 years. Unfortunately, due to some stupid plotline introduced by a bored Kishimito, he finally gave up and become Naruto's wannabe fanboy.

Sasuke Uchiha has been blessed by Kishimoto to withstand this horrid technique for 15 long years. This divine level of resistance is thought to be the result of Sasuke being a descendant of Indra--the first person to withstand the TnJ by the first ever TnJ user, Asura. Withstanding multiple barrages of TnJ from Team 7 and several more from Naruto for 15 manga years, Sasuke appears to have learned and developed a dark version of TnJ of his own. This TnJ, similar to Naruto's, is likely among the strongest to ever exist due to Sasuke being a descent of Indra--the first person to ever resist a TnJ (from Asura).

Sasuke's unique TnJ was seen when he seemingly appeared to be TnJ-ed by Hashirama. To everyone's surprise, Sasuke used an advanced form of TnJ that made Hashirama and even Tobirama TnJ themselves into supporting his ideals.

Sasuke's TnJ resistance came to a close during the last part of the Kaguya Otsutsuki Strikes arc during the closing final battle between him and Naruto. In their final confrontation battle, Naruto and Sasuke, with their own advanced forms of TnJ, fought while communicating telepathically. The battle ended in a tie, with both ninjas lying on the the ground with their arms destroyed. Being his keikaku (means plan) all along, Naruto activated the ultimate and most lethal variant of TnJ: TnJ-Blood Ties. By mixing his blood together with Sasuke, TnJ Blood Ties finally allowed Naruto to completely brainwash Sasuke to the extent that not even Kishimoto could save him. The technique was so severe and effective that Sasuke ended up falling in love with and marrying Sakura--a woman he never showed romantic interest in before, and admitting that Naruto is his equal and best friend. and the best part is that sasuke was the only one to resist Tnj for a long time.

Large scale use[]


In Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, Naruto Uzumaki demonstrated the ability to use TnJ on a notably much larger scale: the Tajū Talk no Jutsu (TTnJ). While giving a speech in Konoha, during the Byakuya Gang incident, he was not only able to calm a fair number of protesters down, but also managed to change their mind and turn them against the Byakuya Gang. This new evidence suggests that skillful users, who have mastered TnJ, are also able to use TTnJ, a rare variant of the technique directed at a large number of people.


Several years after succumbing to Naruto's TnJ during the Konoha crush arc, Gaara was finally able to master and display his TnJ prowess during the Five Kage Summit when he asked the other Kages, "When did you all forsake yourselves?" This skill was repeated during the Fourth Shinobi World War when he inspired the Allied Shinobi Forces as well as psychologically wounding Kabuto's reanimated corpses. His TnJ finally met its match when he miserably failed against Sasuke, who was just too emo.

Hashirama Senju[]

Initially, it would appear Naruto's Talk no Jutsu pales in comparison to Hashirama's. The latter's Talk no Jutsu seems to be the most effective, converting Sasuke and CHOKE ME DADDY! universe as it basically sets up the entire plot. Moreover, while being a natural at using TnJ, Hashirama has very low resistance against TnJ. This was seen when Naruto used TnJ on him, convincing the First Hokage to blindly support Sasuke despite the latter's true and more anarchist intentions.

Itachi Uchiha[]

Itachi Uchiha has a variant of the technique called Izanami which traps the opponent in an endless time-loop until the victim TnJs him/herself. This was used to convert Kabuto away from the dark side. On success, the jutsu stopped the war on a large scale due to the release of reanimated corpses and left it to be a millennia-long, god-tier family feud.

Madara Uchiha[]

Madara Uchiha may be the only shinobi known to be able to resist and dispel such a powerful technique due to his strong immunity to it and probably also due to the fact that he created a counter jutsu to it during his time inside the cave. The resulting technique, Give No Fuck no Jutsu, can cancel any form of Talk no Jutsu. This technique was developed in response to his being a victim of Hashirama's Self-Sacrifice Talk No Jutsu a few years before he was able to dispel it, likely due to him being a descendant of Indra--the first ever person to resist TnJ. Unfortunately, the Give No Fuck no Jutsu was deactivated after the Kaguya bullshit, so in his partially conscious, paralyzed state Hashirama's last technique Death's Door Talk no Jutsu was used against Madara, which he may have succumbed to (the TnJ) in his fragile emotional state prior to his immediate death. It should be noted that if he did succumb to it, he could overcome it if he wanted to.


Despite the seemingly all-consuming power of TnJ, there are a few ninjas who have initially shown resistance to it. These include Uchiha Obito, Orochimaru, Uchiha Sasuke, Uchiha Madara, Haruno Sakura, the Fourth Raikage, and Indra. All of the above mentioned possessed the Give No Fuck no Jutsu to some extent. However, towards the end of the Naruto: Shippuden manga, only Uchiha Madara was shown to be completely impervious to the technique. Indra is also assumed but not shown.

Indra Otsutsuki[]

Indra's resistance to TnJ was fueled when he didn't get daddy's puppy love and attention and wasn't chosen as successor of Ninshu. He declared war on his father and was only stopped when Asura, failing to subdue him with his TnJ, used his full power to defeat him. Refusing to capitulate, he declared that he will eventually destroy his father's work, even at a next life. As a result, his descendants, Madara Uchiha and Sasuke Uchiha, were also blessed with innate TnJ resistance.

Madara Uchiha[]

As one of Indra's descendants, he had one of the strongest resistance to the immense power of Talk No Jutsu. Although at the start, Hashirama used TnJ on him to aid the creation of Konoha.

Side note:[]

Madara Uchiha:[]

Though it is said this guy has the most powerful anti TnJ well he did succumb to the Hashirama Revival before you die let me give you some juicy TnJ no jutsu. It is said that this jutsu was a big douche move by Hashirama who had some kind of emo edgy hatred for madara's resistance to his TnJ. As if to point his big balls (that look like sharingan hinted after he has a bath) towards Hashirama before his last breath he accepts this puny guys last bull shit.

Shisui Uchiha:[]

Not much is known about this Uchihas life and how many people were victim to his criminal activities. However, he was a proficient Tnj-ier or the TnJ-ier of all TnJ-iers the so called Shisui of the Tnj-ier. Shisui gave a slight Tnj infused sharingan to Itachi and even to Danzo who decided to protect the leaf in his own ass-holic way.

Hamura Otsusuki:[]

This man was a an alien as he TnJ-ed Kaguya when he was born. He started by kicking her in the stomach whilst he wasn't even born yet (implied he had 8 months and 29 days to go). Used a TnJ infused slap and after that Kaguya as we knew her became delusional. He as well had inherited the good side of TnJ but unable to use it since it was dangerous forbade himself from ever using it again. However, Haguromomo pushed him to the edge after he impregnated no Jutsu a girl he liked. This led to him releasing some TnJ aura which not only affected Kaguya but later Haguromo since he chose Asura without really considering how he's other son feels. Hamura later goes to the moon with a rocket made out of pure TnJ fuel and is able to release all his TnJ emo edge potential onto his descendants. Stories of TnJ however is heard from the main and side branch who both are at odds with each other. Of course the puny little side branches are nothing like the main branch who have a crazy alien variant of TnJ thanks to Hamura.


This man is very wierd as he has a TnJ and is a man who has fought against desitny to aquire this unholy varaint. Able to trick people into giving up their bodies so he can live forever and he was ill at the part 1 of naruto. He was also very resilient to Jirayais TnJ and even he's sensei Hiruzen who was adept at TnJ. However, Jiraiyai had more potential and as a friend didnt give up on TnJing Orichi until he decided he couldn't do anything when he couldn't even TnJ not only hes comrade but disciples as well. There it was hinted that a part of his TnJ had flown to Naruto as pure energy. It was also hinted that Orichimaru has a gay variant for Tnj the one for little girls and boys (implied that he has no gender it is more accurate to say he is gay (also lesbian) than bisexual). The TnJ of this guy is weird as he can make people follow him from childhood e.g. Karin, kimimaru, suigetsu, sasuke etc. This f$%k-ed up Tnj variant even kick started Naruto like a chain reaction and is called TnJ hidden depth no jutsu. So powerful he even talk no jutsus the world into thinking hes private part has the elixer of life. In Boruto it is implied that he TnJ's Mitsuki which by the biggest miracle he falis to TnJ little disabled Mitsuki? We dont know yet since Orichimaru has contact with both and can be in fact TnJing them without them realizing.

TLDR : unless you are one of the strongest, give up you will fall to TnJ
