I don't want to speculate, but it seems like a high probability to me. It's simply "clone technique" version of Sarutobi's technique, those "multiplied" ones are fake.

Yes it looks the same but the Anime desided to name this one differently, and thats the difference.184.108.40.206 (talk) 18:30, December 9, 2012 (UTC) Yhwach
Bump, this is shuriken throw + clone technique--Elveonora (talk) 13:36, January 9, 2013 (UTC)
Not 100% sure, since I don't recall much of this episode, but if the shuriken were just clones, they wouldn't hit, like the clones created by the Clone Technique lack actual substance, and if that was the case, I think it would have been added when the article was created.

I will have to rewatch again, but I don't think all of them hit. Also "phantom" says for itself, there are both real and fake shurikens--Elveonora (talk) 10:30, January 10, 2013 (UTC)
