Vanishing Facial Copy Technique

  • Name: Shūshagan no Jutsu, 消写顔の術, literally "Vanishing Facial Copy Technique"
  • Type: B-rank, Supplementary, Short range (0-5m)
  • Users: Orochimaru

This jutsu allows the user to peel the face of another person off and wear it like a mask, effectively impersonating said person. In addition to copying the victim's face, it also copies their voice. The grisly after-effect of this is that the target loses their face entirely, as if it were dissolved clean off their head. Orochimaru uses it to infiltrate Konoha during the Chunin Exam arc and again to impersonate the Fourth Kazekage just before the invasion. Orochimaru can seemingly do this at will to mimic his original appearance.
