|Literal English||Shadow Invocation|
|Chakra Nature||Yin Release|
|Derived jutsu||Dance of the Shadow Blades|
While items created through Shadow Invocation are particularly useful, they do not last forever. Particularly, items created in this way only remain in existence for roughly an hour, fading away afterwords. Furthermore, items dispelled before their allotted time has expired return their remaining chakra back to the user. This return of chakra doesn't apply to items that are forcibly destroyed.
While this technique isn't particularly difficult to perform, it is given a high rank due to the fact that the complexity of the chakra structure in these tools can differ greatly. For example, masters of this technique can reproduce complex steel folding techniques found in regular weapons, allowing an incredibly durable blade to be produced.
