The Yamanaka clan specialize in Mind related techniques which makes them experts at intelligence gathering, espionage and interrogation amongst other things. They have also displayed sensory abilities and their techniques include transferring their consciousness, reading minds and communicating telepathically. The flower symbol of this clan is the bush clover which symbolises a "positive love". Most members of the Yamanaka clan wear their hair in a long ponytail, which appears to be traditional.
It is not just the minds of their enemies that can be manipulated however, one of the most basic of the family's abilities lies in their ability to cast their own minds forward into another person, allowing them to manipulate the opponents body. This technique is dangerous as it leaves the users own body without a mind, however more advanced users have found more refined methods of using this technique to compensate and even remove that weakness.
