A technique created by the Nara Clan
Shikamara can use it for a Covert attack from a Distance. According to Hidan as long as you watch the Shadows this Jutsu is worthless. I don't hide in the Shadows I become them. Your Shadow Jutsu lasts about 5 Minutes. The thing is I realized that both the power and the duration of your little Jutsu gradual weakens each time you use it. Admit it Kid the longer you use the Jutsu the more feeble it gets until you have nothing left.
- Shikamaru's Shadow Possession Jutsu only lasts 5 minutes.
