A Shadow Clone is an entity in the game. It is based off of the Shadow Clones that appear all across the Naruto franchise. Shadow Clones can be summoned ONLY by players. Shadow clones copy everything about you except for your weapons, Sub-Jutsu and Kekkei Genkai. They can use any Ninjutsu you have equipped. They will not use your Chakra, but they rarely use it, resorting to Taijutsu. It will take one or two punches in order to take them out. They will run to the closest enemy, and attack them. If they don't have anybody to fight, they will vanish, and with the same smoke effect they make when summoned, similiar to Summoning animals.
