The Parasite Clone technique is one utilised by Akatsuki's White Zetsu.


This technique allows White Zetsu to biologically produce clones of himself, of which is able to communicate and control remotely.[2] Being his perfect duplicates, they resemble him closely, aside from pants, sandals, and his flytrap like appendage. Unlike normal clones, they don't dispel when they are dealt damage or killed.[3] Even if the original user is killed, they will not dispel.[4] They can also be used with White Zetsu's Substitute Technique to assume the form of any individual that he has touched, even copying their unique chakra and items.[5]
