I was reading through some older chapters when I stumbled upon a panel of Jiraiya telling Naruto not to use "that jutsu". This was at the beginning of the 'Save Gaara Arc'. It bugged me that I couldn't remember what jutsu Jiraiya was referring to so I thought I'd post it as a question here so I can get it out of my mind.
Thanks in advance,
While Naruto and Jiraiya where away, Jiraiya tried to teach Naruto how to control the Kyuubi, but it didn't work out so well and Naruto kept on losing control.
When Jiraiya returned Naruto to Konoha he warned him "and don't even think about using that jutsu". A bit later we saw Naruto go on a Kyuubi rampage and hurting Sakura.
Later it was said "the key" Minato left behind is also Naruto's ticket to mastering "that jutsu", and soon afterwards he finally obtained his purified chakra shroud. Since then "that jutsu" has never been mentioned again, so if you ask me "that jutsu" is simply Naruto's glow worm mode.
Some people will argue thats not a jutsu but a state. Keep in mind though in Kabuto's case "that jutsu" turned out to be Sage Mode, which also isn't really a jutsu per se.

Maybe it's just an abandoned story arc.
Also Naruto did in fact improve during the 3 years however an excuse like to better his grasp of the basics wont cut it. It was 3 years. Other than chakra control and improvement in taijutsu what else did he really improve in. His strategy remains the same as they did when he fought Neji, Kimimaro, Sasuke. He just makes shadow clones and they poof. Not to bash naruto but the fact that a week training under kakashi and yamato was more help to naruto than 3 years with jiraya is not baseless and is obvious. And to dig even further, it was non other than kakashi teaching naruto the basics. Naruto still had no idea what type of chakara he was. You'd think finding the nature of your chakra was as basic as it gets but even that was left out. I don't need any mind-blowing career-ending jutsu but just basic jutsu that complement the nature of your chakra. Just like how sasuke's fire jutsu's complement his chakra nature.
I understand that naruto is no genius and the kyuubi chakra hinders his growth but the fact that kakashi was able to get results from him without the help of any basics he learned from previous days but rather teaching naruto how to improve from zero in a new world of ninja science he had never heard of in the past (chakra nature) and a genius strategy to help him out with the training and into making an amazing jutsu really says something about the 3 years spent with jiraya.

"That jutsu" hasn't been confirmed yet as far as I know. It's all still speculation as to whether it's control of Kyuubi or using Kyuubi's power for a jutsu, possibly for something like a bijuu bomb or bijuu rasengan or something. Though if Jiraiya was telling Naruto not to use "that jutsu," it could be related to the Kyuubi's chakra.
Jabman dude, completely off-topic, but why do you insist in writing with bold characters? It hurts my eyes. Almost like ALLCAPS.
Anyway as for what "that jutsu" is, we don't know yet. We know it isn't mastery over Kurama but the justu requires the mastery of Kurama which Naruto gained recently.
We know it isn't Buuji Bomb because Naruto was completely clueless as to what Buuji Bomb was even.
& Kishi wouldn't have forgotten about it. It would be crazy considering he brought the subject ("that justsu") to our attention right before Naruto went to Killerbee to master Kurama. Naruto knows "that Jutsu", he knows how to perform "that justu" but to perfect "that justsu" he would need mastery over Kurama (which he has now).
Honestly though, Kishi should stop teasing with these vague teams. "That", "That justu", "Him", "He who knows all" & bla bla bla lol
The extensive use of those can be annoying (that goes for other artists too lol).
