The abominable and tremendous ability, passed down only within the Yuki clan. It is a technique wrapped up in many mysteries. It was said that no method in existence can defeat this technique. In an instant, multiple mirrors of ice are created around the enemy, reflecting nothing but the user. The opponent is trapped in a dome of twenty-one floating mirrors made out of ice. Twelve remain at ground level, eight float above the first twelve and angled toward the ground, and the final mirror is above the rest and facing the ground. Once the user has entered the mirrors, it's possible for them to move between the mirrors at the speed of light. It's near impossible to follow attacks sent out from this incredible movement. As every mirror shows his reflection, one could say it's impossible to see all of the user's attacks. Even if the opponent tries to attack the real body, the user will have already moved to another mirror.[1] Without eyes like the Sharingan, it will be impossible to keep track of them.

If the mirror they user is in is broken, they can leap out of one of the fragments and continue their attack or move to another mirror. The technique requires a large amount of chakra to maintain, so the user's movement becomes progressively slower the longer they maintains the mirrors.[2]

The user can also form individual mirrors, not restricted to the twenty-one-mirror formation. They can create them high in the sky allowing them to take out airborne targets. The cold which emanates from the mirrors is also enough to cause snow to fall.[3] Though they are made from ice, the mirrors are resistant to Fire Release techniques.[4]


  • In the manga and anime, Haku calls this technique by its full name, "Secret Technique: Demonic Mirroring Ice Crystals" (秘術・魔鏡氷晶, Hijutsu: Makyō Hyōshō). However, the databook entry for this technique drops the "Secret Technique" part.
