Ura Renge or Reverse Lotus
* Name: Ura Renge, 裏蓮華, literally "Reverse Lotus" (a.k.a. "Extreme Lotus" or "Primary Lotus"), English TV "Hidden Lotus"
* Type: Kinjutsu, A-rank, Offensive, Short range (0-5m)
* Users: Rock Lee, Might Guy
This jutsu is an advanced and more destructive version of the Front Lotus, which requires that at least three chakra gates be opened (in every instance in which it has been used, five gates are opened). Once enough gates are open, the user launches the target into the air and then jumps after them, striking them quickly in the pattern of a triangle and then hits them with one arm and one foot, sending the target crashing into the ground. This is usually fatal due to the speed and power behind the attack. Because so many chakra gates are opened at once, it can only be used once, since the user will likely be unable to stand afterward. Guy's version involves him launching the enemy into the air, spinning like a drill, and delivering a bone-shattering punch.
