This is a more destructive version of the Front Lotus that requires at least three of the Eight Gates be opened. Once enough gates are opened, the user kicks the target into the air and continues to strike them at inhuman speeds. They then deliver a final, powerful open-handed strike and kick at the same time, sending the target crashing into the ground; this is usually fatal due to the speed and power behind the attack.
Opening so many gates at the same time will likely leave the user unable to stand afterwards, and for that reason the Reverse Lotus can only be performed once.
- In Naruto the Movie: Guardians of the Crescent Moon Kingdom, Rock Lee performs the Reverse Lotus using his nunchaku in place of the bandages around his wrists he would usually use to throw his opponent up into the air.
