i know this is a stupid question but does this technique require a pre-existing source of water for the technique? like can it be made from thin ai or what. also on a side note can someone of the hozuki clan who has the hyrdification technique use the water from their own body to make this clone?

did mei

did mei use this technique in naruto shippuden ultimate ninja storm generations, because several times i saw her body fall apart into water. i couldnt tell if she was using the bod flicker technique using water or she was using a clone. (talk) 00:15, April 13, 2012 (UTC)

It was the body flicker. Tobirama and Suigetsu do the same thing. When it's a clone it kinda pops up from the water. When you move away or evade someone they use the water-(related) body flicker.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 00:19, April 13, 2012 (UTC)

Water Clone power, REPLY

Ok so do Water Clones have the same strength/power of Shadow Clones? But just not completely made up of the users chakra because of the element so it can't fool dojutsu—This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) .

Water clones has 10 % of the users original strength. The clones can fool Sharingan, but the others is unknown. Jacce | Talk | Contributions 08:48, August 14, 2012 (UTC)
I should point out that Water Clones have seem to have zero tolerance for damage. A shadow clone can sometimes take a hit without dissipating, depending on the damage. Also, a water clone seems to be only able to use water-style techniques, and is limited to the immediate area around the caster, around 50 meters I would guess. To its credit though, it doesn't "split" the user's chakra the way a shadow clone does, and likely costs less chakra to create as well. Skarn22 (talk) 08:57, August 14, 2012 (UTC)

Water Clones were shown to have tolerance, when Kakashi stabbed Zabuza with a kunai, the clone was leaking a little water for like 5 seconds instead of immediatly disappearing like Shadow Clones. But dont Water Clones have the same strength as Shadow Clones because when Naruto makes shadow clones they are a lot weaker.—This unsigned comment was made by TheFonzie (talkcontribs) .

Zabuza is stronger then Naruto. Jacce | Talk | Contributions 18:05, August 14, 2012 (UTC)

In episode #13 of Naruto Haku specifically says the water clones Sasuke destroyed were 1/10th the power of the original water clone, and I can count at least 8 present in the manga in chapter #24, and in chapter #25 Kakashi remarks that if he uses a shadow clone to save Sasuke from Haku that Zabuza would match him with a water clone. Considering what we see from water clones later in the series is it possible the water clones divide power based on how many are created? I think the bit in the article about a water clone being 1/10th the strength of the user is inaccurate. 14:52, November 1, 2017 (UTC)KidRadd
