Also Called

  • Darkness Puppeteering
  • Shadow Possession (Naruto)
  • Shadow Puppetry


The user takes control over motor functions of others against their will as if they were a marionette via shadows, subjects are still conscious, but can’t resist the user's puppet control. This can be executed by infusing ones shadow into the shadow of the target, physical contact, or simply having shadows touch.




  • May only effect targets that are in touch with their shadow.
  • Both the target and user must have shadows, thus some level of light is needed.
