When Shikamaru and his team caught up to the Sound Four, Shikamaru used Shadow Possession Jutsu, and Sakon said something about having mastered the technique as well. Should we all him to the list of users, even though he never actually used it?
He never actually said that.... But something that is ever more important is that in the naruto games, Kakashi can also use shadow imitation jutsu, with his sharingan... Shouldn't we put him up as a person who can use it as well??
Ok first shadow imitation jutsu is a hidden jutsu and can be learned like shadow clone jutsu. Second in game everybody can use it even naruto. i think. Kyuubinaruto123 (talk) 19:19, 6 June 2009 (UTC) PEACE!
Im a 100% sure that Sakon said ˝it might have worked if i havent mastered that jutsu already˝ when Shikamaru cought him in his jutsu so i think it should be added to Sakons justsu listITACHI'95 (talk) 11:10, May 11, 2010 (UTC)ITACHI'95
I'm not sure how important or interesting this will turn out to be, but Ensui actually refers to this technique (or the technique he was preparing, at least) as Shadow Imitation Shadow Bind (影真似影縛り, Kagemane Kage Shibari). Later on, it is constantly referred to as simply Kagemane, though. —ShounenSuki (talk | contribs | translations) 16:27, January 15, 2011 (UTC)
Enlarged Shadow and travelling
So the article says: ". If the target is out of range, the user can produce a better light source to increase their shadow's size or rely on pre-existing shadows for their shadow to freely travel through. " What does this mean? Does it mean that suppose by throwing a light bomb and using it to enlarge one's shadow, it will remain even after the light flash is gone and enlarge the shadow? And what about the traveling part meaning if the user's shadow travels through a tunnel or a shadow of another thing, will it be enlarged too? 188.8.131.52 (talk) 12:01, January 6, 2012 (UTC)
- They can use Flash Bombs which the Nara seem to like a fair bit and yes it means the shadow will stay even when the light disappears (as long as it binds it's target by then [not too sure about this part]). Or link their shadow to another shadow which gives their own shadow a wider/longer range. I'll see if I can make that more clear in the article though.--Cerez365™ 12:05, January 6, 2012 (UTC)
Usage in The Last
Hi all, I'm a long time silent participant and I hope i'm not opening up a can of worms. Did anyone else notice that in The Last, Shikamaru uses the Shadow Possession jutsu to manipulate several of Toneri's puppets into fighting one another WITHOUT MOVING HIMSELF. If so, should it be added to the main article or the trivia section? Jemin-eye (talk) 23:15, February 22, 2015 (UTC)Jemin-eye
