Indra’s Arrow


Indra’s Arrow is Sasuke Uchiha’s strongest offensive technique.

Usage

After absorbing chakra from all nine tailed beasts and using his Complete Body — Susanoo as a vessel, Sasuke creates a longbow and arrow that are infused with lightning-natured chakra. It proved to be extremely powerful, able to match Naruto Uzumaki’s Six Paths: Ultra-Big Ball Rasenshuriken despite Lightning Release’s inferiority to Wind Release.

Influence

This technique draws influence from Hinduism, where Indra, the god of thunder and wars, used a rainbow as a bow to fire arrows made of lightning; the thunderbolt is also said to be given the name Vajra, which is synonymous with diamond or adamantine in a Japanese context.

Trivia

  • This technique derives its name from Indra Ōtsutsuki, the ancestor of the Uchiha clan and, in the manga, the first user of Susanoo.
