Which they can control and reshape even parts of their body with sheets at will, making such forms as weapons for attack, butterflies for spying, paper airplanes for quick transport, or simply covering their enemy in sheets of paper, restricting and asphyxiating them.[1] Also the papers are expendable, including parts of the user's body converted to paper; and how much paper can expend depends on the user's chakra reserve. The user can also hide paper seals among papers to add a deadly surprise to attacks.[2]

Trivia

  • Shikigami, when written as 式神, refers to a kind of spirit summoned to serve an Onmyōji (a kind of sorcerer). These spirits are often depicted as changing into small pieces of paper once harmed or finished with their task. In the name of this technique, the kanji for "god" (神, kami) has been replaced with the kanji for "paper" (紙), which is pronounced the same. This is likely done to emphasise the paper nature of Konan's shikigami and to point out the subtle difference between them and traditional shikigami.
