Naruto has showcased multiple powers and abilities that each shinobi can make, from Sasuke’s Sharingan to Rock Lee’s taijutsu. But out of all the amazing, action-packed, and fast-paced skills and jutsu that a shinobi can make, nothing beats the moment when Naruto mastered the Shadow Clone jutsu.
When the series started, Naruto was unable to produce a single clone of himself. It was only when he saved his teacher Iruka Umino from Mizuki after he stole a scroll containing secrets from the First Hokage that he was able to do so. Since then, it has been one of Naruto’s specialties during the early parts of the anime series.
What makes this different from the clone technique that ninjas in the academy have to master in order to graduate is that the clones are real rather than being illusions. This means that more chakra and energy are being used in comparison to its less powerful variants. These clones can also use other jutsus, making them more versatile. An example of this was during the Chunin Exams when Naruto made clones of himself and transformed some of them into Sakura, Sasuke, and Kabuto.
Doing the Shadow Clone jutsu is simple. You need to put your fingers in a cross formation. Both the index and middle finger must be out, right hand vertical, left hand horizontal. Next, you have to build up your chakra energy evenly so no energy is wasted. Lastly, you just need to yell out “Shadow Clone jutsu.” From there, real-life clones should appear right next to you.
There are pros and cons to this jutsu. The pros are that you can create real-life clones, as many as you want, that can attack and hurt the opponent ⏤ very useful for creating a distraction. The cons require you to yell out the jutsu, ruining the element of surprise. Also, the durability of Shadow Clones is weak and is more likely to be destroyed after one hit.
What is Jutsu and the Multi shadow clone technique?
First of all, what is Jutsu? Jutsu is one of the mainskills Naruto has and develops along the series. It contains supernaturalskills that he has during different fighting scenes. This is a real Japanesetechnique that is based on splitting the chakra generally into one clone. However,in Naruto cartoons, he can create as many shadow clones as he wants.
If Naruto makes less than five clones, he will say “Kage Bunshin no Jutsu” which stands for Shadow Clone Technique. On the other hand, if his chakra is strong enough to make more than five clones he would say “Tajuu Kage Bunshin no Jutsu” which stands for Multiple Shadow Clone Technique.
