She is however not weak against water to the same extent, as seen when Pain washed the oil off her with the [[Water Release: Wild Bubble Wave]] technique, her use of paper in her village [[Amegakure]] where it always rains, and later in her battle against [[Tobi]] where she divided a lake with her paper.

Using her high origami and ninjutsu skills, Konan can turn her body and clothing into many sheets of paper. She can control and reshape even parts of her body with sheets at will, making such forms as weapons for attack, butterflies for spying, paper airplanes for quick transport, or simply covering her enemy in sheets of paper, restricting and asphyxiating them.[2] She is also capable of hovering while in her paper form.

This paper is seemingly expendable, including parts of her body converted to paper; and how much paper she can expend depends on her chakra reserve. She can also hide explosive tags amongst her papers to add a deadly surprise to her attacks.[3]

In this form, however, she is weak to oil-based techniques, which causes the paper to stick. She is however not weak against water to the same extent, as seen when Pain washed the oil off her with the Water Release: Wild Bubble Wave technique, her use of paper in her village Amegakure where it always rains, and later in her battle against Tobi where she divided a lake with her paper. This is shown again later in the anime, as Konan uses water to her advantage, soaking her paper body in water so that flames and heat would not burn her.

Trivia Edit

  • Shikigami, when written as 式神, refers to a kind of spirit summoned to serve an onmyōji, a kind of sorcerer. These spirits are often depicted as changing into small pieces of paper once harmed or finished with their task. In the name of this technique, the kanji for "god" (神, kami) has been replaced with the kanji for "paper" (紙), which is pronounced the same. This is likely done to emphasise the paper nature of Konan's shikigami and to point out the subtle difference between them and traditional shikigami.
  • Her ability to make wings out of paper mirrors her title as "God's Angel" in Amegakure.
