The user materialises their shadow and increases its power, becoming like steel. The user then captures the target's shadow and forcibly moves them about. The techniques strength is proportionate to the chakra put into it, with enough strengh even giants can be moved. When used together with the Akimichi's Human Bullet Tank, it turns it into a weapon. This simple application makes it useful in a number of emergency situations. Unlike with the Shadow Imitation Technique, though the two shadows are connected, the target is not forced to copy the user's movements, allowing them to retain their own range of motion.
