The Gekkōgan is one of two special kekkei genkai dōjustu the Shoku clan possesses.
The Gekkōgan (月光眼 Gekkōgan viz; Moonlight Eye
) is one of two special dōjutsu kekkei genkai of the Shoku Clan. When activated, the Gekkōgan appears as a crescent moon within the user's iris. The Gekkōgan is only obtained by a small percentage of Shoku clan members, most notably in those whose specialty is water style ninjutsu. It is said by clan elders that when a Shoku clan member awakens the Gekkōgan, they are able to use a special type of ninjutsu known as the Moon Style, combining the water and yin styles.
The Gekkōgan is said to grant the user the ability to see in the dark, being able to see up to 5 meters in front of them. As the Gekkōgan matures, the crescent slowly becomes "full" until a solid "moon" covers most of the iris and the pupil entirely. When the Gekkōgan is fully matured, it grants the user complete vision in the dark, able to see as far as the user can normally during the day. The Gekkōgan also gives the user the ability to harmonize with the moon and use it's light to trick opponents. One notable jutsu used by Gekkōgan users, is a jutsu known as the Hidden Darkness jutsu. The Hidden Darkness jutsu parallels the Hidden Mist jutsu, but instead of mist it uses darkness.
The Gekkōgan, while strong, is said to only work at its full potential during the full moon being able to use the moon's light, and during the new moon using the darkness already around them.
Jutsu Used by the Gekkōgan:
Waxing Crescent Form:
Hidden Darkness Jutsu (闇隠れの術 yami gakure no jutsu
) Is a parallel of the Hidden Mist jutsu, but instead of mist the jutsu uses darkness.
Moon's Mirror (月の鏡 tsuki no kagami
) is a jutsu that uses the full moon's light to turn the opponent's shadow into a clone that will mimic the opponent's moves and jutsu. The only drawback of the jutsu is that the shadow must be able to see it's original.
First Quarter Form:
Moon's Mirror: Has the same properties as the waxing crescent form, but the shadow is able to think for itself and will be able to attack the original regardless of sight, however it still must copy the originals movements to some degree.
Moon's Terror (月の恐怖 tsuki no kyōfu
) is a jutsu that uses the new moon's shadow to create a nightmare like realm of the opponent's worse fears. However, the drawback of the jutsu is the nightmare realm acts more like a still backdrop. Only used as a scare tactic.
Waxing Gibbous Form:
Moon's Mirror: Clone is able to speak and move freely, can chose the best option of victory. Does not need to see original to attack.
Moon's Terror: The nightmare realm becomes a fully realized world with moving fears, however the realm cannot cause harm and does not possess the natural five senses.
*The Waxing Gibbous Form does not possess any new jutsu*
Full Moon Form:
Moon's Mirror: Clone is able to think and move freely, does not require sight to attack original or need to follow the original's movements. Becomes its own solid person.
Moon's Terror: Nightmare realm has all natural five senses. Can cause harm and can physically touch opponent.
Moon Blast: (ムーン・ブラスト mūn burasuto
) By gathering the light of the full moon in the user's hand, a Gekkōgan user can shoot a blue and white beam at the opponent. By gathering the shadows of the new moon in the user's hand, a Gekkōgan user can shoot a black beam at the opponent. When collecting the full moon's light the beam is more concentrated, whereas the new moon's shadow beam is sporadic and more destructive.
Moon Force: (ムーン・フォース mūn fōsu
) is a jutsu that users the full moon's light by gathering it within a selected point. When enough energy is gathered, a crescent moon will appear and with a snap the selected area will explode.
Moon Vein: (月静脈/ムーン・ベイン tsuki jōmyaku
) is a unique jutsu that turns the user's veins a bright shade of blue, illuminating from under the skin. When activated, the user's skin becomes almost as hard as steel and makes it difficult to cut.
Moon's Wrath: (月の怒り tsuki no ikari
) is a jutsu that can only be used on the full moon. When activated, a crescent moon will appear on the user's forehead much like sailor moon
. The users body will than begin to float into the sky, bursting into flames as more and more moon energy is collected. When enough energy is collected, the user will then shoot towards the opponent like a meteor, crashing into them and exploding. A very dangerous jutsu and can cause severe damage to the user and can leave them on the brink of death. This jutsu is only used as a last resort and is not something used often.
Moon's Warmth: (月の暖かさ tsuki no atatakasa
) if the user manages to survive the Moon's Wrath Jutsu, then the Moon's Warmth jutsu immediately activates, using the moon's light and energy to heal all of the users wounds sustained in the battle. During that time, the user is completely immobile and will be so until a 100% full recovery. If used normally without using the Moon's Wrath Jutsu, the user will still be able to move, but their power is diminished some as the moon heals them.
