A highly convenient technique, characteristic of Deidara. Above all other "clone techniques", this clone has the double role. It acts as a substitute and a trap for capturing the enemy. Made from clay, this clone can take attacks and capture the enemy by taking them into its own body. The clone shows its natural shape the instant a body goes through. While the clay changes in hardness, the enemy is skilfully immobilised. If explosive clay is added to the clone, it can then make itself explode, taking the enemy with it.
