The Crystal Release (晶遁, Shōton) is a rare and specialized Kekkei Genkai that can create crystal as well as manipulate already-existing crystals and crystalline structures.
Crystal Release users can crystallize any matter form into crystal, from physical materials to vapors in the air. This renders techniques based on physical natures, e.g. earth, water, and wood styles, useless against it. Master users of this release can even crystallize their targets down to the cellular level.
Crystal Release cannot crystallize raw energy or chakra, due to their lack of mass. It is also susceptible to certain sound wave frequencies. Even with its weaknesses, Crystal Release is a powerful and coveted Kekkei Genkai, which requires minimal hand seals to use.
Note: All jutsu listed were taken from existing characters' pages, and they do not contain all of the feats you can take under Crystal Release. Feel free to add more if you create them or in the occasion you take them from the Naruto canon but they aren't listed here!
Note 2 Note Harder: Supercharge costs are not added since they depend on a character's CC, but upkeep costs are, after the description of each feat.
Note 3 Note Harderer: Notes about special cases or factors, if not in the feat's description, will. Always. Be. After. The. Description.
Other Jutsu Edit
Crystal Release: Jade Crystal Clone Technique - The user creates a jade crystal mirror, and identical clones of the user emerge from the mirror. Due to being made of crystal, they can endure more damage than a typical shadow clone and by expending 20 CP the clones can regrow broken crystal back into its original shape. When destroyed, the clone explodes into crystal needles doing damage equal to the clone's remaining CP. [50 CP minimum per clone. Follows Shadow Clone mechanic. Regeneration is cosmetic only, does not heal the clone/undo damage dealt to it, but can regrow arms, etc. Versatility of this feat requires that shadow clone be taken as a feat first.]
