    It seems like as long as his shadow is binding you no matter which technique (the neck bind (kubi shibari), or the stitches (nui)...) the opponent touching the shadow cannot move. However, they just have different effects as one puts pressure on the body (neck bind), or can do piercing damage (the needles) or make them copy your movements all while they can't move!

    I wonder what chakra affinity shikamaru is and if he seriously learns some killer technique to go with his immobilization ones he would be akatsuki level HAHAHA...

    some jinchuuriki gets caught in his shadow and then deidara blows him up. shikamaru is akatsuki...

    shikamaru gets sasuke in his shadow bind (which i don't think chidori nagashi could get)...and then naruto pwns sasuke with a rasengan...

    shikamaru gets orochimaru, itachi, akatsuki leader...and someone else finishes them off...

    he's a pretty handy ninja to have around i'd say especially with his intelligence and abilities. he may not have tons of techniques to use, but he knows what he is capable of and he has mastered that it seems to the full potential and capacity......but...

    just wanted to give some props to shikamaru...hope it wasn't too mendokuse to read...

    What sets him apart from everyone else is his intelligence. Not that he is smarter than everyone else but they way he makes up those strategies and figures out a way of winning. That's what I like about him anyway.

    no, you are right, shikamaru is scary.

    and his skills while downplayed because of his lazyness, completely pwned hidan.

    so yup akatsuki level. kakauzu wil leave the scene because he can't win against a guy who can stop your movements and impale you, while his teammates do the same.

    and the akatsuki killing squad is on it's way:amuse

    yeah but he can't use it for more than 2 seconds...without back-up muscle to actually do his killing he wouldn't last long. Haven't you noticed that his opponents are usually of the frail femenine gender. The one time he fights a man he can't deliver the final blow and PnJ somehow prevented Kakuzu from finishing these 4 losers in 2 seconds.
    Kakashi mentioned that Chouji and Shikamaru's chakra affinity were Yin/Yang respectively.

    Shikamaru couldn't hold pakkun in place for mare than a few seconds...now he's holding bijuu?

    why do people think Sasuke would survive a rasengan and that it will suddenly allow him to see the light...or is that the point?

    highly doubtful EITHER of those ninja would get caught by any shadow...Hidan is just an idiot, and besides, he doesn't even move around in battle.

    if you look at it clearly you will see that his use is actually quite limited to complicated situations like this ritual business...if it were an all out slaughterfest were only the strongest, fastest and most powerful survive...or a war with hundreds of ninja on the battlefield, he would be little more than cannon fodder since he probably couldn't go head to head with a more direct opponent. Haven't you noticed all of Shika's opponents have these gay little abilities that "no one but him" can figure out?

    put him up against a straight gangsta like Oro, Itachi, Sasuke, Neji, Lee & even Naruto etc...people who fight in your face and don't have fancy maneuvers to decipher and he'd be dead pretty quick.

    IMO, Shika should be Hokage, because the Hokage should be the smartest not the strongest.

    Shikamaru could have a kage bunshin finish his opponents off. Shadow bind, then have the bunshin chop the opponents head off.

    And if he doesn't know it he could easily learn kage bunshin with 200 IQ.

    Kage bunshin divides your "catra" by 50%...Shikamaru would faint if he had to use both his shadows and that jutsu at the same time.

    Shika's father had a shadow bind that also could break the opponents neck. I would like to see him use that.

    Besides his shadow techniques and amazing intellect, he hasn't shown varying use of jutsi.

    Remmber, when a technique seems too powerful, it's because the plot no jutsu was used to empower it.

    I think that high level tiers should now how to combat this kind of technique, Hidan, being immortal, a little inestable and prabably most used to one on one combat (in which his tecnique shines) was te perfect candidate for being trapped, also the fact that his technique is limited to a small circle in the floor make him a stall oponent, and the big trouble with Shadow Bind (as temari an tayuya shows) is the movement.

    it's funny how he still hasn't done anything that readers should think is particularily brilliant

    getting hidan out of his circle was the most obvious plan imaginable, regardless of kotetsu and asuma being amazed at it

    it was like his 'brilliant' strategy in the chuunin arean, to float his shirt around for more shadows. If he's so smart why doesn't he come prepared in the first place, with something more practical for creating shadows; like a big umbrella on a stick. Or learn a secondary jutsu for creating shadows. Anything. Instead he floats his shirt around lol. What an idiot.

    he's strong as hell though, that shadow stuff is amazing

    Well, he've figured that all out while holding Hiden in place. I suppose it would be harder for him to think this through than for us who are sitting back and reading the manga. XD This is also what Kakazu was impressed by.

    But this is back to the most comical way to make a character look strong/brilliant/influential: using literal words to reinforce someone's strength and influence. I think it's kind of boring sometimes.

    He'd be a lot stronger if he could bind opponents with strong chakra. as it stands now, he wasted all his chakra binding Hidan for less than a minute. It works well against people with weak, or normal level chakra, though. He'd beat nearly anybosy that's at his level.

    Better yet, bring his jounin-ranked dad, and maybe the rest of his clan if they have more than three shinobi members (Shika's mom is a Chunin)!

    It took everything Shikamaru had to make Hidan take two steps. His brain is amazing, but he needs backup to win against almost anyone.

    Shikamaru is one of the people who'll take up the place after current Konoha bigshots like Gai and Kakashi!

    Shikamaru is pretty much the ultimate support ninja, he'll come up with a plan and pre-occupy the opponent enough for his partners to get a decent shot at taking the others out.

    With shadow needles he packs a bit more of an offensive punch now as well but his style is still mainly support, you still wouldn't want him to be the main offensive in a team and in a one on one face off he's still not the best.

    Its when he has team mates to work with he can really shine.

    How come we haven't seen the "Shikamaru is on Ninjaroids" thread yet. First look how big he got, he's probably about the same size as Sasuke. Second this shadow stuff had trouble holding the likes of Temari, Dosu and Tayuya, now he's holding down Akatsuki. That's one hell of a leap. Everybody should be playing shogi and looking at clouds to train after seeing this payoff.

    Yeah, the only thing that kept this chapter from being horrible fanfic is that Shika himself said that his discoveries were 'obvious'.
