Crimson Moon (紅月, Akatsuki) is a Third Generation technique. Using an incredible amount of firepower, the user fires a huge fireball at his opponent; creating an explosion which resembles a red moon.
- The author has created an illusion of the name of this technique. "紅", which is pronounced "akai" and not "aka", means crimson/deep red, and is the first kanji of Benimaru's name. When it is written next to "月" which means "tsuki", it creates the word "akaitsuki", and translates to Crimson Moon; however, Ōkubo took away the "i" in the pronunciation to use the word "akatsuki", which is actually written as "暁", and means dawn/daybreak.
- Benimaru hinted that this may be one of Konro's techniques.
