As we all know that Shadow Clone Jutsu is one of the most powerful Jutsu in the Naruto Anime. And it is a symbol for Naruto he used the Shadow Clone Jutsu in Battles, for Training, for diversion, for popular Sexy Jutsu .and many more. He is the only Character in Naruto Anime who totally used Jutsu to its limits.
But why Uchiha Clan never uses this Jutsu and also why Boruto can’t use this Jutsu like his father? Bortuo Shadow Clones are very weak when compared to Naruto Shadow Clones. Let’s answer some of those questions today. So without any delay let us dive into it.
Who Created Shadow Clone Jutsu?
The Popular Shadow Clone Jutsu is created by the 2nd Hokage of the Hidden leaf Village Tobirama Senju A.K.A The Creator. The Shadow Clone Jutsu is a Forbidden Jutsu in Naruto Anime. This Jutsu allows the user to create multiple copies or replicas of himself by dividing his Chakra into the Shadow Clones which gives Shadow clones the ability to perform Jutsu independently without the help of the user.
The Popular user of this Jutsu was Naruto Uzumaki and the Shadow clone Jutsu is also called Kage Bunshin No Jutsu ( 影分身の術 ) in Japanese. This Jutsu is one of the most powerful Jutsu in the Naruto Anime.
Why is Shadow Clone Jutsu Forbidden?
The Shadow Clone Jutsu is Forbidden because the Jutsu can be used to only a particular extent according to the user’s ability and user Chakra reserves. But if the user uses more Shadow Clones it results in more user Chakra distribution to the Shadow Clones, which leads to total depletion of the user’s Chakra and the death of the user.
But Naruto Uzumaki is an exception to this because he has a large Chakra without Kurama and including Kurama Chakra he had endless Chakra reserves. So he can create thousands of Shadow clones without thinking but other Shinobi don’t have Chakra like Naruto so they are forbidden from using the Shadow Clone Jutsu.
How to do Shadow Clone Jutsu?
When compared to other Popular and Powerful Jutsu in Naruto’s Anime Hand signs. Shadow Clone Jutsu hand signs are very easy this Jutsu contains only the crossing of fingers in a format. But the hand signs are the only thing easy in this Jutsu except for Hand Signs this is one of the hardest Jutsu to learn in Naruto because the Chakra control should be precise and taking Naruto Shadow Clones it should be nearly perfect because he creates approximately 1000 Clones every time.
How many Shadow Clones does Naruto use in the 4th Great Ninja war?
In the 4th Great Ninja War Naruto used nearly millions of Shadow clones because he have to be with every company of the Shinobi Alliance and detect Zetsu from normal Shinobi and also help out others in defeating Reanimated Shinobi. So Naruto needed one very part of the 4th Great Ninja war and should do multiple things so he used millions of Shadow Clones to help everyone in the war.
Naruto was able to create millions of Shadow Clones because he has most of the Kurama Chakra after completing training with 8 Tails. So he was able to create millions of Shadow clones with the help of the Kurama Chakra. Other than Naruto no other Character in Naruto anime can create that amount of Shadow Clones even the creator of the Jutsu ( Tobirama ) can’t create that many Shadow Clones.
Can Shadow Clones make Shadow Clones?
Yeah, Shadow Clones can create Shadow clones we have seen multiple times in the Anime. That Naruto Shadow Clones creating Shadow Clones, Especially in the 4th Great Ninja war in the fight with Madara, Naruto Clone helps the Kages to defeat Madara and create thousands of clones with Rasengan to stop Madara Deep Forst Emergence Jutsu.
Well, all the Shadow Clones cannot create thousand of Shadow clones because, in the fight with Madara, Kurama helped the Clone by sharing his Chakra so the Clone can defeat Madara. Which made Naruto Shadow Clone able to create thousands of Clones with Kurama Chakra. But normal Shadow Clones cannot create thousand of shadow Clones but they can create 1 0r 2 Shadow Clones.
Why are Boruto Shadow Clones very Weak?
Boruto Shadow Clones are very weak in the Boruto: Naruto Next Generations anime is because Boruto doesn’t have abilities or Chakra like Naruto, and also Boruto doesn’t have Chakra control nor he can maintain Shadow Clones for long period. Which makes his Clones weak when compared to Naruto Shadow Clones.
But Boruto’s use of Shadow Clone and Naruto’s use of Shadow clones are different. Naruto uses Shadow Clone Jutsu as a primary Jutsu and even uses it for fighting but Boruto doesn’t use the Shadow Clone Jutsu as his primary Jutsu. He uses it only for distraction or to increase his speed. So it makes Boruto no need to have a strong Shadow Clone.
How many Shadow Clones can Boruto make?
The Maximum number of Shadow Clones that Boruto can create is 4 which is nothing compared to Naruto. But Boruto can’t create 1000 Shadow Clones because of a lack of Chakra reserves like Naruto. As we know Naruto had large Chakra reserves even without the Kurama Chakra because of Minato and Kushina Chakra. So Naruto can create 1000 clones even without the help of Kurama in his childhood. But whereas Boruto doesn’t have such type of Chakra as Naruto so Boruto can’t create 1000 Clones or powerful Shadow Clones like Naruto and his limit of creating shadow clones is very low.
Can Naruto make 10000 clones without the help of Kurama?
Yeah, Naruto can Create 10000 clones without the help of Kurama but Naruto might get into the Sage Mode to able to create 10000 because in the Anime it is only mentioned that Naruto can create more than or approximately 1000 clones without the help of Kurama. We have seen multiple times Naruto creating 1000 clones without the help of Kurama in his childhood and also in his training to master his Chakra Nature.
But we never specified in the Anime exactly how many Clones can Naruto create without the help of Kurama. But if it is below 5000 clones Naruto can create using his Chakra but above that, he needs to go into Sage mode to create more than 10000 Clones. But he can create 10000 clones without the help of Kurama that’s for sure.
Why does Uchiha hate Shadow Clone Jutsu?
There are several reasons why Uchiha never uses Shadow Clone Jutsu. First of all Uchiha Clan members are capable of using Shadow Clone Jutsu it’s not like they can’t perform the Jutsu. But they simply don’t want to use the Jutsu. We have seen Madara using a similar type of Shadow Clone Jutsu using the Hashirama Wood release technique in the 4th Great Ninja in the fight with the 5 Kages.
Sasuke used the Shadow Clone Jutsu in the recent episodes of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations Anime while teaching Boruto Shuriken Jutsu. And Madara could have used the Shadow Clone Jutsu at the time of first reanimation when Madara have to fight with a Company of Shinobi alliance alone in the 4th Great Ninja War. But why didn’t he use the Shadow Clone Jutsu? It is the best Jutsu for defending a group of Shinobi.
There are several reasons for it one of them is that Uchiha considers Shadow Clone Jutsu as a Jutsu to cover the loneliness of a person. Sasuke mentioned in the first fight between Naruto and Sasuke that Naruto uses Shadow Clone Jutsu to just cover up his weakness and loneliness and another reason is that Shadow Clone Jutsu doesn’t fit into the Uchiha Fighting Style.
And as we all know that Uchiha’s have Sharingan and they can see enemy movements and can easily fight a group of Shinobi. Just like Madara used his Sharingan and managed to defeat some of the Shinobi in the 4th Great Ninja War, so they don’t really need the Shadow Clone Jutsu. Also, this Jutsu uses so much Chakra of the user to create a single Clone and the Sharingan also consumes so much Chakra. So if Uchiha uses the Shadow Clone Jutsu their Chakra will be depleted very quickly.
And another main reason is, Uchiha has alternatives for Shadow Clone Jutsu like Madara has Wood Clone Jutsu, Itachi has Crow Clone Jutsu and Shisui has Genjutsu. And Uchiha’s most likely used the Shadow Clone Jutsu at least once in their lifetime just like Madara used the Shadow Clone Jutsu to fake his death.
