Urashiki Otsutsuki posseses an unusual signature skill, which enables him to form his chakra into a fishing rod and hook "looking thingy" to extract chakra from people and store it in his gourd. enter image description here

Is this ability also capable of extracting Bloodline Kekkai Genkais?


Kekkai Genkais cannot be replicated or learned just by stealing a user's chakra or attempting to copy the technique. Even though Urashiki can steal chakra in order to access certain user's abilities, this does not apply to Kekkai Genkai. As defined by the Wikia, a Kekkai Genkai is

an anomaly of the DNA that allows the wielder to use unique techniques.

Urashiki's ability seems to be similar to the Sharingan in the sense that it can copy other techniques but a requirement needed to perform abilities unique to Kekkai Genkai is that there must be anomalies in your DNA related to the Kekkai Genkai you are trying to copy. What I think would happen if he tries to copy other Kekkai Genkai (for example, Ice Release) is that he would probably have access to the theory behind performing the technique he is trying to copy but since there are no DNA anomalies in him that enables him to mix both Wind and Water, he would be unable to perform said technique that is unique to Ice Release users.

Throughout the Naruto manga, examples of ways to access or transfer Kekkai Genkai is by transplanting body parts, like in the case of Dojutsu or Madara transplanting Hashirama's DNA to access Wood Release, or indirectly through Orochimaru's Edo Tensei. This means that you need to have access to the DNA that allows someone to manipulate chakra like no one else can. Despite this, success rate of acquiring Kekkai Genkai abilities is still low, like in the case of Yamato. It is the DNA that enables someone to be use Kekkai Genkai and not through practice or training to become one (I remember this was discussed when Naruto was training with Kakashi and Yamato).

The closest thing to accessing Kekkai Genkai via chakra is with the Rinha Clan's Kekkai Genkai, which steals chakra and enables them to create perfect copies of someone which can use

any weapons, techniques, and bloodline techniques that the original shinobi have. But this clan has only ever appeared in-game and not in the manga, anime or movies.

  • Ah. I see what you mean. Already edited it :) – W. Are Dec 2 '18 at 1:15
  • I agree with your logic but then why does the Wiki state that Moegi can use wood style by combining 2 elements together? it never states that she obtained hashiramas cells or anything like that. anime.stackexchange.com/questions/49165/… – Rumpelstiltskin Dec 2 '18 at 1:28
  • @Rumpelstiltskin Yeah this was never discussed in the manga at all, and there are no mentions of who her parents are. It's possible that this would be revealed in Boruto later on or maybe Kodachi forgot about it. Or it might yet to be revealed that Wood Release can be inherited but it is possible that it skips some of the descendants, and she could be a descendant of the First. This could be a plot hole, though. I honestly still have no idea how she acquired it, unless she is also a product of another experiment or something. – W. Are Dec 2 '18 at 2:02
  • @Rumpelstiltskin It's also possible she obtained it like how the First did, without inheriting it from anyone else. It could be a genetic mutation and by chance, she was able to perform Wood Release. But then again, unless it will be confirmed, we can't say for sure. – W. Are Dec 2 '18 at 2:04
  • I dont think that is the case @We.Are cause she could not use the ability while she was younger, through out Naruto and Naruto shippuden, she never had the ability until Boruto – Rumpelstiltskin Dec 2 '18 at 2:32
