This technique allows [[White Zetsu]] to create an exact copy of anyone, simply by touching them. The [[Parasite Clone|clone]] used for the technique becomes a perfect duplicate, even possessing chakra identical to that of the one they are impersonating. The clone, which is controlled remotely by the original,<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 505, page 11</ref> is not strong enough to fight an extended battle. As such, its primary purpose is to function as a diversion. The clone retains the appearance of the person even after its "death" and reverts to its true form only after the technique is released by White Zetsu himself.

This technique allows Zetsu and its clones to create an exact copy of anyone, they have ever come into physical contact with. The user of this technique becomes a perfect duplicate, even possessing chakra identical to that of the one they are impersonating along with anything they might be wearing or tool they were carrying.[1] They can also seemingly copy their victim's abilities to the extent of what is known to them. For example, a Kisame Hoshigaki copy attempted to use the original's Water Release: Great Shark Bullet Technique,[2] and another copied the appearance of Hinata Hyūga's Byakugan's.[3] It was only the anime, however, that they were shown using these techniques.[4] However, because the substitute is weaker than the original individual, their primary purpose is to function as a diversion more than anything.

When he used this technique White Zetsu created clones to serve as substitutes; he was able to control these clones remotely and remained aware of their actions and experiences.[5][6] The transformed clone retained the appearance of the person they were impersonating during that time even after death, reverting to its true form only after the technique was voluntarily released by White Zetsu.[7]

A variation of this technique is also used by the soldiers of the White Zetsu Army. Unlike the original's version, the technique is seemingly dispersed once the transformed clone is dealt a significant amount of damage or killed.[8][9] These clones also demonstrated the ability to partially revert to their true forms while transformed.[10][11]

Trivia Edit

  • In the anime, this technique was shown to be activated by White Zetsu having a clone make physical contact with its target and transform.[12] In the manga, it is not made clear whether this was the case or White Zetsu could simply create clones of others that he had previously touched.
  • In the manga, the clone used as a substitute for Kisame Hoshigaki resembles a regular parasite clone.[13] In the anime, however, the clone possesses the venus flytrap-like extensions that protrude from the side of the original White Zetsu and his black counterpart, as well as the clothing that White Zetsu was wearing at the time.[12]
  • In both the manga and anime, the transformed clones were shown to bleed when damaged. However, in Naruto 6: Road to Ninja, limbs severed from transformed clones were shown to leak a white substance, similar to Obito Uchiha's artificial arm.
