First performing a standard Shadow Clone Technique, the Shikaru clones will all perform the Shadow Imitation Technique. Catching anyone in the area in the technique, the clones will all form a boar hand seal. This will trap anyone in the area down in place unable to move. Following this, an attack could be administered by anyone besides the clones administering the technique. In certain cases, another clone will appear in the middle of any captured targets/enemies and release an exploding tag. This technique has shown to greatly drain Shikaru of his chakra.
