Deidara uses the mouths in his palms to prepare clay for his explosion release. How did he get these mouths? Was he born with them or did he acquire them some other way?

Somewhat contrary to the other two answers, it is actually unknown how Deidara got the mouths in his hands, as it is not revealed in canon.

The Wikia does mention the hands in their Iwagakure Kinjutsu article, however it's important to note that the part talking about the hands is merely speculative.

Quote from Wikia (emphasis my own):

It is likely that the mouths on the user's palms and chest are the result of using this technique

The technique he stole from Iwagakure is talked about in the third databook: Picture of DataBook Page 105

In this Data Book article, it mentions the technique that he steals from Iwagakure is the ability to fold his chakra into clay. It can be guessed at that this is where the hands come from, but it's possible that he got the hands elsewhere and can merely use that ability through those mouths.


The first thing to say is that he was not simply born with them, after he lost both arms fighting gaara and then naruto and kakashi, he had replacement arms grafted on and the donor arms also had the mouths. Naruto wikia has this to say on the subject:

Deidara also possessed special mouths in the palms of his hands and on the left side of his chest as a result of stealing and using a powerful kinjutsu from his village on himself. Deidara was forced to leave Iwagakure when he stole a kinjutsu to develop his passion for art.

  • During the fight with Kakashi Deidara's arms was not destroyed. It was ripped off. Kakuzu latter stitched it back. I forgot the details about his fight against Gaara, though. Mar 4, 2016 at 6:46
  • I'll need to look into this further, i recall him finding the stump of the arm kakashi hit with the mangekyo sharingan, but a large chunk of his arm was destroyed; sucked into another dimension or whatever that vortex was. and it could not simply be sewn back on.

  • If you're going to copy text, please at least make the effort to citing the pages you got it from. You quoted copy from Deidara's page and the Kinjutsu. If you don't make an effort to properly cite your sources, your answer may be removed.
