The Water Clone Technique is a clone technique that originates from Kirigakure.[2]


By using water as a medium, the user can create one or more clones of themselves. While the clones can perform techniques, they only possess one-tenth of the user's power,[3] and cannot go too far from the original.[4] The clones can also be used as medium to perform other Water Release techniques, as demonstrated by Kisame when he reverted their arms into water to perform the Water Prison Technique.[5] When these clones are struck with a sufficient amount of force, they will revert to their water form.
