Jutsu Type – This tells you how their jutsu works. There are currently a few types which we will show below.
Most single target spells are devastating and have much higher attack multipliers than the AoE ones, but there are a variety of single target attack types you should be aware of.
Based on Character Range
The single target abilities will typically work on the first or closest enemy, so keep this in mind when using a single targeted ability. It is easy to mess up and not hit your intended target. Make sure it is pointing at the right target before you pull the trigger!
Most single target attacks will fall into this. Their single target ninjutsus are usually based on their range. So if the character is short / mid / long range, their single target ninjutsu will most likely be the same range. This is not always the case though.
Below are the characters with single target ninjutsus based on their range.
Single Long Rectangle
The Single Line Single Target abilities will usually have a long range indicator but typically will only work on the first enemy in line of the ability, making them difficult to position if the ability is facing behind the character such as Kisame’s Water Shark Bomb jutsu. However they have a great ranged positioning advantage. These abilities will give you a warning at the bottom of the screen.
Single target rectangle abilities will typically only hit the first enemy in the indicator. Pay close attention to positioning with these abilities, you will see a warning indicator at the bottom of the screen to remind you of how it works.
The plus ability gives a longer range than most ninjutsus and gives you the option to attack from all directions, making it a versatile skill to have.
Cross abilities are similar to the plus ninjutsus, except that you attack diagonally.
This type of attack is a small hit box (looks like a fan to me) in front of the character. Keep in mind that this jutsu won’t be able to hit enemies on the most left side of the screen.
AoE Long Rectangle
The AoE long rectangle work the same as single targeted version, the only difference is they will hit multiple enemies instead of the first enemy in line. They remain as a strong ranged advantage but difficult positioning ability.
Rectangle AOE abilities will hit multiple enemies in the indicators, they occasionally stretch just a tiny bit outside of the actual indication box allowing you to hit multiple enemies that otherwise might not be in range if you take the time to position it.
AoE Short Range
Short ranged AOE abilities are usually no larger than the hitbox indication for an enemy, these are usually strong abilities and are great if you manage to get the enemy grouped up together.
AoE Mid Range
Mid ranged AOE abilities will easily overlap two near by enemies, a lot of high tier characters will have these types of abilities. They give an easy time when it comes to positioning yourself for dealing damage without putting yourself in a situation of taking multiple enemy counter attacks.
AoE Long Range
The Long Range Jutsu’s will give a large radius circle that can cover a good portion of the screen, making it very easy to land a devastating AOE ability.
This is a rare type. Much like the single target version, except that you can hit 2 enemies or more! Most of the time though, it will be good enough to hit one.
Dodge and Barrier
There are some characters that have more unique jutsu types. These are vital in negating big damage from certain tough boss’s ninjutsu. Do not discount their abilties as they can help you tank damage!
