Discussion of Bloodlines (requested by admin)
I might as well get this started off. A lot of you will probably dispute what I say here, but that's really the whole point of a forum. And yes, I realize that this has likely been done before, but this is a request by an admin, so who am I to deny the absolute authority of this board?

1. Mastery of Water and Ice - This is Haku's. While it may not be taken for a blood limit at first, since a blood limit is genetically based, it was confirmed by Zabusa in the manga that it is a bloodline technique. So its canonically proven.
2. Byakugan - Do I really need to go into this one?
3. Sharingan - see previous answer
4. Shikotsumyaku (literally Corpse Bone Pulse) - The name for this one is taken directly from the official data book by Kishimoto, so its canonically legit. This blood limit also seems to be ridiculously powerful, with Kimmimaro only succumbing because of his disease (won't go into that now).
There are no other confirmed blood limits. All the other ninja techniques, such as the Yamanka's possession, the Nara's shadow manipulation, Akado Yoroi (aka: the leech), even Kidoumaru's six arms and Sakon/Ukon's incest (yes, I know that they're freaky). None of these are confimred as blood limits in either the manga or the data books (which are by Kishimoto).
The definition of an advanced bloodline technique is any sort of property that is passed down the generations of a specific clan genetically. This does not mean the same thing as surgical enhancement (elastic man in the prelims) or purposefully inviting parasites into there own body (bug people aka: the Aburames). A good question to go by in order to distinguish between secret clan techniques and an advanced bloodline is this: are they born with it, harboring either the technique (byakugan) or the potential to use the technique from birth (sharingan)?
Like I said before, all of my info and proofs are taken directly from either the manga or the data books (there's two of them, and they really are official), so don't try to prove this wrong with your own logic. If you must prove me wrong, then do it with something concrete. A hunch, intuition, your gut instinct...don't bother.
corpse bone bloodline is said to be the strongest, since no physical damage can do anything to them at all. fire, ice, lightning,sand wont do anything at all against them, since they can made/destroy cells and protein in body as they wish.<its like having a medic skills as their advance bloodline w/ no chakara requires>(even garaa said they would have lost if kimimaro didnt die of his deceases, those crazy sand pressure couldnt even kill him...)
byakugan is the strongest bloodline/clan in the hidden leaf. 359 degree vision and jyuuken fighting style. their advance bloodline are very strictly protected by the seals on the forhead to destroy the byakugan as soon as the users die.
sharingan is the most feared clan b/c of their eyes. enable ninjutsu copies, genjutsu reveal, and strong doujutsu. NOTE: most feared doesnt meant strongest. something can be fearful but not strong.
the mist is strong, although very little information about them. only known that they live a very crewl life, uses water/vapor in the air to create attacking ice dagger, or whatever. mirror walls...etc
list from strong to weak in my opinion: 1. corpse bone, byakugan, sharingan, ice/water.
Chiyo said the 3rd Kazekage had magnetic chakra since birth, so that would be the start of a bloodline limit maybe.
naw, its his created jutsu. he invented that jutsu and only him know how to use it. most feared jutsu for puppeteers. kinda like chiyo with the life trading jutsu. yondaime with body flicker.

Well, it's kind of polemic, but some ppl consider Satetsu ("Iron Sand", from Sunagakure's Sandaime Kazekage) as a bloodline. I don't recall it being called exactly a bloodline (kekkei genkai) in the manga, but it does state that Sandaime was born with that ability (thus, characterizing it as a bloodline, or not?)

it would almost be like garaa's trait then, except that he's controling his chakara to form iron sand. but garaa uses his chakara/ichibi chakara to control sand. and it was from when he was born(yes, i know he was sealed with it)
still not quiet clear whether it is a bloodline, but manga never say for it to be an advance bloodline. keep in mind, choji has a physical trait to enlarge his body parts.. but its not advance bloodline.
They explained the body part enlarging thing, you just have to have massive calorie intake to do it. And I'm guessing Gaara has the sand because sand is the Shukaku's medium.
it's completely different from those two cases.

As for Chouji, it's well stated that Baika no Jutsu is a regular jutsu. It's just that it's common in the Akimichi clan. I don't even know why you brought this up.
My point was: even if Satetsu isn't officialy considered (at least not yet) as a bloodline ability, i'm asking about the definition of bloodline abilities. If someone is born with an uncommon physical trait which allows him to use his chakra in a special way, isn't that a bloodline ability at all?
There's also that Yoroi energy leech guy. He said his bloodlimit was that.
I don't think Haku's bloodlimit was mastery of ice and water. But I guess that's the best description you could give to it.
Ah yeah, Filler Blood Limits should not be counted.
And about Shino, Choji, and Shikamaru, I don't think those are blood limits but just special techniques that are passed down the family lines.
