The user controls the reflection of light around their body using chakra, causing their form, shadow, and even breathing to become invisible to the unaided eye. Because they perfectly blend in with their surroundings, the user can sneak up behind an enemy without being noticed. Only dōjutsu like the Sharingan or Byakugan can see through it.
Because only the user's appearance is camouflaged, they can still be discovered through scent or the sounds they make.
