They are sharpened, four-pronged metal stars, [[Shurikenjutsu|useful for throwing]]. Although small, they can be used to distract, pin down enemy shinobi, or if accurate enough, can be deadly. They have an open circle in the centre, useful for grabbing with a finger, to avoid cutting oneself, or to put thread through. The circle is also beneficial to the weapon's overall aerodynamics, ensuring more accurate trajectories. == Types of Shuriken == * In addition to the basic shuriken, larger, arm-length shuriken have been seen in the series. They are usually carried on the back or [[Generic Sealing Technique|stored in scrolls]].<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 1, page 27</ref> * The [[Fūma Shuriken]] is of a similar size, but is more lethal and can be folded together for easier storage.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 14, pages 13-14</ref> * The [[Demon Brothers]] wear a [[Metal Gauntlets|metal gauntlet]] each that houses a retractable shuriken chain. * During the [[Chūnin Exams]], one of the weapons [[Tenten]] threw at [[Temari]] was a fairly large shuriken that resembled a [[Wikipedia:Swastika|manji]] ('卍').<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 74, page 2</ref> * The shuriken of the [[Land of Birds]] are a little bit different. It has three-pronged metal stars instead of four. * There have also been seen shuriken with bent points. * [[Toroi]] of [[Kumogakure]] employs the use of slightly angular, square-shaped shuriken of varying sizes, ranging from those similar to the typically observed variant to ones nearly as large as his own person.<ref name="Chapter 546">''Naruto'' chapter 546, pages 1-3</ref> * One of the weapons created by [[Iō]] was a useless shuriken that had so many points that it was impossible to grab.<ref>''Naruto: Shippūden'' episode 184</ref> === Shuriken Launching Weapons === [[File:Shuriken launcher.png|thumb|A shuriken launcher.]] * An unnamed [[Konoha]] shinobi used an unusual semi-circular launcher against [[Pain]]'s [[Yahiko|Deva Path]], containing a considerable quantity of shuriken, which could be launched simultaneously.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 423, page 2</ref> This was achieved by holding onto a handle located at the crescents centre, while pulling out an attached length of chain in a manner similar to a ripcord that caused the shuriken to rotate, before firing the entirety in a single direction.<ref>''Naruto: Shippūden'' episode 159</ref> * Toroi used a simple length of cord to thread numerous shuriken together, in such a manner that the entirety could be released and thrown consecutively with just a single motion.<ref name="Chapter 546"/> * When [[Hiruko (missing-nin)|Hiruko]] declared war against the [[Five Great Shinobi Countries]] and [[Konohagakure]] was blamed for it, [[Sunagakure]] were seen preparing giant catapults with six giant shuriken loaded into each one in their attempt to attack Konoha.<ref>''Naruto Shippūden 3: Inheritors of the Will of Fire''</ref> == Trivia == * The [[wikipedia:Shuriken|shuriken]] used in the series are of the [[wikipedia:Shuriken#Hira shuriken|hira-shuriken variety]]; four-point star-shaped disks, rather than the [[wikipedia:Shuriken#Bo shuriken|bo-shuriken variety]]; which are straight, iron or steel throwing-spikes. == References == <references/> [[de:Shuriken]] [[ru:Сюрикен]] Summary: Minor edit Follow this page Cancel Retrieved from "http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Shuriken"
