Translation[edit]

  • Utsusemi means "Cicada", an insect that sheds a brittle, lifelike shell. It's a rather artistic meaning when one considers the spells' use.
  • The tool for this spell, "Shihei", means paper soldier. This alludes, presumably, to a paper decoy.
  • "Utsusemi" can also be translated roughly into being able to transfer something. In this case, the something is damage. "Shihei" or "toy soldiers" is the item used to transfer the damage.
  • "Utsusemi" can also be translated to "Projection." Which makes sense to the Ninjutsu since you "project" three to four images of yourself to protect yourself.
