Using his Dark Release, Takeshi creates several shade figures from darkness. These shade figures act like shadow clones only they can move faster and Tskeshi can create them by the dozens with ease as they do not require very much chakra. They have all the same uses a shadow clone has and they can additionaly levitate as due to their lack of physical form, they are not affected by gravity.
