|Anime||Naruto Shippūden Episode #290|
After implanting Orochimaru's DNA, Kabuto developed a large amount of tiny snakes that multiply at a rapid rate and can merge into either a clone of another living being using a genetic sample or a larger serpent for combat. During the Chikara Arc, Kabuto not only created a clone Hidan, but also one of Naruto with Kurama's chakra as well. However, the clone snakes have a short lifespan, with what they form into eventually suffering a cellular breakdown within 48 hours of existence.
Clone Snakes: Serpent Technique:
Kabuto slams his hand on the surface of water containing his specially-developed snakes and emits dark-red lightning, which causes the snakes to take on the form of a giant blue snake with a red mouth and no eyes. The snake then rams and pushes the enemy underwater in an attempt to drown them. Kabuto used this technique within The Hole, which is known to speed up the recreation process of his snakes.
