This jutsu creates three Shadow Clones of the user, which attack along with the user in a complicated sword-dancing pattern to confuse the opponent.


This jutsu is pretty much pointless. Attack on the Nervous System is more powerful because it affects all three stats, rather than just Genjutsu, and it cost 50 less chakra to use. While Dance of the Crescent Moon is 15,000 XP cheaper to learn, it's really not worth it, unless you and your village don't have The Rack, and you desperately need to pass a Genjutsu mission.


This jutsu was first (and so far only) used by Hayate Gekko in Naruto.
