The Water Clone Technique is a clone technique that originates from Kirigakure.
By using a water source, the user can create one or more clones of themselves. Although these clones are fully capable of functioning in battle, they only possess one-tenth of the user's power and cannot go too far from the original. Also, as demonstrated with Kisame Hoshigaki, as long as the user weaves the hand signs for the clones, they can still perform the technique in question. If these clones are struck with a sufficient amount of force, they will revert back into water.
