A technique that consists of pouring one's chakra into a scrap of paper in a split second, hardening and sharpening it, so it can be used as a shuriken. Its sharpness is equal to that of a shuriken made of metal. The user can further increase the power of the shuriken by making it into certain shapes. Konan is seen using them combined with Nagato's Wind Release: Gale Palm, speeding up the shuriken and enabling them to pierce the body further.
Konan can fold the paper shuriken into different shapes, including the normal four-pointed star shape and a more kunai-like shape. In the manga, the latter shape does not spin like a shuriken. In the anime, the shuriken spin regardless of shape.
