Using this technique, the user creates a clone or several clones made of rock, which they expel from their mouth. Unlike other clones, ones generated by this method do not disappear when struck with sufficient force, but rather break apart.
- Akatsuchi was originally credited with the use of this technique in the manga during the battle at the Island Turtle against Deidara's explosion. However, in the tankobōn, Ōnoki is credited with its use.
