Requirements: Body Flicker
Parent Technique: Body Flicker
Hand Seals: Half Tiger Seal
Description: The Shunpo is an advanced form of the Body Flicker Technique, usable by those who have mastered the latter to such a degree that hand seals are no longer necessary. Unlike the Shunshin, but its speed is on an entirely different level. The user has learned to apply Fuuton chakra to his body and feet allowing additional gravity defining abilities granted to the user. This is noticeable via the feeling of air pulsating around the body. As well as landing kicking up dust or rustling of clothing is able to be seen.
Transport via this technique looks less like teleportation, and more like an instantaneous leap, or dash depending upon the jutsu casters use of it. The user vanishes from sight and reappears in the desired location, seeming to have just landed on the ground. This is also, of course, based upon "vanishing" from sight depend on someone's perception stat. This technique can also be used as a jumping mechanism, propelling from a surface with an incredible force that translates instantly into speed, providing the same boosts as though running along the ground, and only lasting up to the maximum range. It provides a two-tier boost to speed.
The jumping ability is tied to your base strength stat and can't be boosted to as its a sign of your natural abilities.
X-Rank Strength: 300 Meters
S-Rank Strength: 250 Meters
A-Rank Strength: 150 Meters
B-Rank Strength: 90 Meters
C-Rank Strength: 20 Meters
D-Rank: 0 Meters
E-Rank: 0 Meters
Weaknesses: Similarly to the parent technique, the Shunpo only provides for movement in direct lines, only allowing slight variance from the course and avoiding only smaller obstacles, such as people or trees. The Rinnegan (when using certain abilities that is) can offer a better vision to avoid larger weapons and larger obstacles, as well as higher perception stats and coordination could affect the ability of the user and what could be done with the technique. Likewise, lower perception stats and coordination stats could be deadly for the user of this technique.
As with the parent technique, this is derived from, one would need to use half seals to reactivate the technique if they wish to move within a new direction. The half tiger seal may be held to constantly refresh the 300-meter limit providing a constant speed increase.
I am just moving this over to Naitome since I retired Koji.
