- Name: Sand Clone Technique (砂分身の術, Suna Bunshin no Jutsu)
- Type: No rank, Supplementary
- Users: Gaara, Sasori
- Debut (Anime): Naruto Episode 66
- Debut (Manga): Chapter 111
Gaara creates a copy of himself out of sand, though it lacks color and is immediately recognizable as sand. This means that it is almost useless as a decoy. Unlike most bunshinjutsu, the clone still retains its shape after it's struck, and can even ensnare whatever comes into contact with it.
In the anime, Sasori uses a Sand Clone as a body replacement to avoid Kankuro's Black Secret Technique Machine One Shot, though it dissolves once injured.
