In the "Naruto" anime series, hand signs -- or hand seals, as they are referred to by ninja -- are used to perform various elemental ninjutsu techniques. There are 12 basic hand seals that are all named after signs of the Chinese zodiac. The hand seals that are most commonly associated with fire include the tiger seal, snake seal, horse seal, hare seal and dragon seal. Ninjas from "Naruto" combine these seals with other basic hand seals to unleash powerful fire-based jutsus.
