When did this jutsu appear in chapter 1? —This unsigned comment was made by LeafShinobi (talkcontribs) .

Naruto uses it to hide from some chūnin after vandalizing the Hokage monument if memory serves me right. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 21:33, June 17, 2010 (UTC)
This was in anime, not in manga, I think.--LeafShinobi (talk) 21:31, June 18, 2010 (UTC)


How is this Ninjutsu?? —This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) .

How is this anything else? ~SnapperTo 16:25, June 10, 2011 (UTC)
This can't be Ninjutsu, cause there's no Chakra used. This is just hiding hinter a cloak, nothing else. At least that's my opinion. Seelentau 愛 22:50, June 10, 2011 (UTC)
It uses a tool. Tool usage is ninjutsu. —ShounenSuki (talk | contribs | translations) 00:01, June 11, 2011 (UTC)

Kishi should change that because it make no sense at all ... So everyone hidden behind a piece of cloth is a shinobi now or anyone throwing something is automatically one as well and samurai using swords is not ninjutsu but someone non-ninja or non-samurai using a sword is again ninjutsu. Until the cloth is a special item like the crystal ball or filled with chakra or something, its just a cloth ...--Elveonora (talk) 16:57, October 18, 2011 (UTC)

Could Cloak of Invisibility be a derivative of the Transformation Technique?

I was wondering if this technique could possibly be a derivative of the Transformation Technique. Since it seems to work in a similar manner and it could be that it requires chakra to aid in creating the optical illusion to get meld the edges of the cloth into the background to make the illusion seem more natural.

Since you have to consider that someone looking at it from the side would notice that a part of the wall or rock is a jutting just little further out than the other parts of the background. The technique could also use the principles of the Transformation Technique to mold their bodies into the place or object behind the cloak to further aid in the effectiveness of the illusion. When Naruto uses it to evade the Chunin after defacing the monument, the chunin are coming after him they didn't notice him as they passed so I'm inclined to believe I'm right about this.

Anybody got any thoughts on this? Comments?MathiasDante02 (talk) 06:26, September 4, 2015 (UTC)MathiasDante02
