    Default What exactly is a kawarimi?

    Ara ara, i know this seems like the simplest thread in the world but listen to my argument before you label me the biggest baka in the world.

    From what i understand in naruto when they make a kawarimi they switch themselves with an object nearby? Or do they create a bunshin out of themselves and have it transform into a tree limb? Im kindof curious because ive seen both, ive seen sasuke's kawarimi turn into a pot with an exploding tag on it. Ive also seen peoples bushin's turn into just tree limbs, so how exactly does it work.
    Any feedback would be appreciated.

    thanks for being a bully

    as to the thread, i don't know what kawarami exactly is, but to my understand, i always believed it to be a swap with the user and a tree limb-simple as that

    Chrome Snake: No, you shut up. That is a valid question.

    Kawarimi no Jutsu is a technique that allows the user to quickly switch himself with a nearby object. Most commonly, a section of a log. It's as simple as that.

    I think they hide the object before hand.
    and whenever they need, they just the jutsu to trade places.

    and that btw its been long while they used something like that.

    because it seems to be very low level and unnificient (trading places with an pre-placed object.. and stuff..)

    You know that the "log" have been prepared because, Zabuza trade places with a rabbit.
    and the rabbit have been breed as its a "snow rabbit" and they are mid summer on a forest... (kakashi commented on it..)

    I also thought that jutsu was kind of unrealistic the way they use it. Seems like everyone can move super fast and switch himself with perfect cylindrical logs.

    If i remember right, Kakashi did Kawarimi in the middle of a open field. It's kakashi, but still.

    Sank you for the feedback. So its basically just high speed movement with an already placed object? I ask because ive seen other ninjas do it in other manga's as well and the thought hit me, thanks for the clarification.

    I don't think that's a right answer. If the substitution is just a high speed swap, then why even swap? Just dodge and that's it.

    I think the substitution is a couple jutsus in one. A swap jutsu, where you switch places with a nearby object. And a transformation jutsu, where you transform the said object into you, and possibly vise-versa. This is supported by the fact that people say, "A substitution!", as if it was an object, not an action. What is really confusing is the earth substitution that the Third Hokage did. Where on earth did he get all that mud?!

    But let's not go and try to apply real-life physics to this. Remember, this is the series that has 2D ink paintings become 3D life-like animals.

    EDIT: Substitition is handy for distracting an opponent and/or escaping a trap. But another thing that's confusing is the hand-seals. We see Sakura doing like half a dozen hand seals, but earlier in the series when Kakashi is being grappled by Naruto, Kakashi does the substitition without any seals at all.

    Orochimaru didn't swap with mud he left a Mud clone in the place..
    (3rd also did it?)
    But swapting with something like said is stupid, you got to have the thing there.. etc.. if you can swap, you can dodge.. dodging doesn't use chakra.. alot better!

    If i remember right, Kakashi did Kawarimi in the middle of a open field. It's kakashi, but still.
    It was on the top of the screen, where Spiderman stick his web 90% of the time.
