Cleaning can disrupt the skin color and also the veins appear as the life gate is opened and the loss of pupuls. Note below the 3rd puts stress on the spinal cords and nervous system, (veins, pupils, skin pigments) All connected to the main nervous system. The video points at them opening accordingly; Opening only the 3rd gate would put stress on the other gates restricting them. Note that, that isnt the strain on the body they mention the gates in themselves harm the body. Im saying just opening one in conjuction would put strain on the chakra flow and instead of boosting its chakra it would restrict the chakra. Like 1st and 2nd are sealed and the 3rd released, 1st and 2nd tiny holes 3rd completly open. The 3rd would force huge ammounts of chakra to the 1st and 2nd and all that energy cannot get through.
possibility (raw could prove otherwise) Cleaning the scans accidently remove the coloring of his skin? A mistake of an editor Its happened alot they make alot of mistakes. I say this because of the switches between him being dark and him being light throughout using the tech
* Name: Hachimon, 八門, literally "Eight Gates", English TV "The Eight Inner Gates"
* Type: Unknown
* Users: Might Guy, Rock Lee, Kakashi Hatake
The eight chakra gates are eight specific points on a person's chakra circulatory system. They limit the overall flow of chakra within a person's body. The basis for the idea of the chakra gates comes from the body's limits on the functions within it. This makes the body much weaker, but it keeps the body from expiring too soon. By opening these gates, the user can surpass their own physical limits at the cost of extreme damage to their own bodies. Rock Lee is able to open the first five gates. Guy, who taught Lee the skill, is able to open at least six. Kakashi can open at least one gate, as shown in during Kakashi's one-handed rock climbing where a shot of his brain shows the relevant point activating. The gates and what they release are listed below:
1. Opening (Initial) releases the brain's limit on the total strain on the muscles, giving the user five times their normal strength.
2. Rest (Heal / Energy) releases the brain's limit on the body's stamina, making a battle-worn person become miraculously ready to fight as if the fight had just started.
3. Life is located on the spinal cord, and releases the limit on the nervous system, which makes information travel at a faster rate and creates even more stamina. As a side effect, the user's skin turns red, indicating an increased blood-oxygen level.
4. Pain (Harm / Wound) releases the limit on oxygen intake in the lungs, creating much more oxygen for the body to use.
5. Closing (Limit) releases the limit on the amount of chakra released at one time.
6. Joy (View) removes the limit on how much fat and proteins the intestines can digest, and releases otherwise useless energy resources, giving the user even more power and stamina.
7. Shock (Wonder / Insanity) removes the limit on how fast the body can move, removes wastes from dead skin cells to feces, and gives the body a much cleaner system to work with, producing even more power and stamina.
8. Death opens the final gate located at the heart and uses up all of the body's energy. It makes the heart pump at maximum power and exceeds the power of every other gate. All the energy in every individual cell is used up, giving the user power well above that of any Kage. This "big bang" effect is only temporary, and destroys every muscle in the user's body, including the heart. Death is assured when opening this gate.
