A technique that consists of using chakra to harden and shape paper into shuriken. The user can increase the power of the shuriken as when Konan combined it with Nagato's Wind Release: Gale Palm, speeding up the shuriken and enabling them to pierce the body further.
Konan can fold the paper shuriken into different shapes, including the normal four-pointed star shape and a more kunai-like shape. In the manga, the latter shape does not spin like a shuriken. In the anime, the shuriken spin regardless of shape.
- In the anime, the paper shuriken were shown to be ineffective if wet. Later, Konan uses oil to keep the paper shuriken in shape.
