In both the manga and anime, Naruto used this technique multiple times, without it being named, in different tailed forms. Naruto varied the chakra arms' use from grappling hooks, to either grab onto objects or enemies from great distances, to offensive means, as merely touching one of these can cause fatal burns, due to the Nine-Tails' seething hatred within its chakra. Due to having chakra attached to his body, the chakra arms can grow in size and from the fourth tail up, Naruto, the arms, or any part of his body can divide into two or more fully operational appendages.[1]

In his controlled jinchūriki form, Naruto can use the chakra arms to its fullest extent, as it has the strength to crush stone with just a grip.
