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


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.[3][4] 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.[5] If these clones are struck with a sufficient amount of force, they will revert back into water.
