In chapter 378, Jiraiya's shadow clone first hides in the form of an actual shadow before distracting the Preta Path with Fire Release: Big Flame Bullet. Is that the same effect where Jiraiya flattens his body?--GoDai (talk) 00:44, April 6, 2010 (UTC)

Its likely just a small variation where he can use it to hide instead of taking over a body.--Deva 27 (talk) 01:14, April 6, 2010 (UTC)

hold his breath?

where did that whole part come from, that he has to hold his breath while he's doing it? I neither remember that in the manga, nor really think it makes a lot of sense. (talk) 18:28, April 22, 2011 (UTC)miah

And there is a certain cartoon logic to it. Think of any old cartoon in which characters were pushed by something, or had something heavy fall on top of them, making them paper-thin. They get back to normal by inhaling, making pressure to expand their insides. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 01:53, April 23, 2011 (UTC)
