Trivia

  • This move's Japanese name, かげぶんしん kage bunshin, is a reference to a ninja technique ubiquitous in manga, anime, and other fiction commonly known in English as shadow clone. A popular example of this is the Naruto series, where the main character, Naruto Uzumaki, has used Kage Bunshin no Jutsu throughout the series as one of his signature ninja techniques.
