* ''Anime/Doraemon'' TheMovie "Nobita and the Kingdom of Robots" has the titular character Doraemon fighting for his life in an arena. So what does he do? Fill the arena with clones so the opponent can't tell which one is the real one.

** As a side note, his clones can also function the same as Jamie Madrox from the aforementioned MarvelUniverse in that any experience his clone has will be absorbed by Naruto upon dispersion, so he can learn new abilities faster, but he also absorbs any mental strain experienced. Thankfully, he doesn't have the EvilTwin problem in this case, but he does sometimes accidentally get into fights with himself before remembering he can just end the technique.

** Subverted with the ninja Murasaki. He claims he can create four identical clones, each as strong as himself; in fact, he's one of a set of quintuplets.

* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', this is known as Kage Bunshin No Jutsu (Shadow Clone Jutsu), and the title character uses this as his primary battle technique. Other characters use similar techniques, but can't quite manage it on the same scale as Naruto himself, who can create upwards of ''a thousand'' copies of himself. Sadly, it rarely helps. In the Naruto world, ConservationOfNinjitsu applies to your own clones.

** This is more a "conservation of chakra" issue. Each of the Naruto clones can still execute all of his techniques and retains all of his expertise (which, because Naruto is canonically an IdiotHero, is not necessarily a lot, especially in the beginning) ... it's just that they're not as super-powered as he alone would be. Consider that Naruto is stated to have access to something near 100x the amount of chakra as his teacher Kakashi - who's fairly powerful himself - and boggle at the thought of it.

* ''NininGaShinobuden'' has Onsokumaru attempt to use a cloning jutsu. He succeeds, but ends up locked in an "epic" battle with the clone. [[spoiler: Who poofs out of existence anyway when the spell duration runs out.]]

* This is a technique sometimes used in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', originally by Tenshinhan, albeit in {{filler}} Piccolo (And once Krillin, oddly enough) loves using it as well. Tenshinan originally used it as a combat technique, but this became less useful as the character got stronger due to each clone having a fraction of the original's strength. Piccolo normally uses it for training purposes, allowing him to spar with himself.

* The hero of the manga ''{{Akumetsu}}'' is a terrorist clone army, and manages to make this ridiculously cool. His trademark mask blows his head off when he dies, concealing this slightly (slightly) from the authorities, and also transmits all the memories and consciousness of the dying member to his base in space, where they make a new copy. Kind of makes a cheat of the 'I'm willing to die to wipe out evil' thing.

* In ''MahouSenseiNegima'', Negi attempts to make a single copy of himself using a [[{{Onmyodo}} traditional Japanese magic that animates a paper doll]], with which he is unfamiliar. Eventually he succeeds, but all his previous (bungled) attempts also animate, and HilarityEnsues as the small crowd of defective Negi-copies run around amongst his students, just as they decide to make him the object of a kissing competition. Later, in the manga storyline, Negi experiences the first day of the Mahora [[FestivalEpisode festival]] multiple times via a TimeTravel device, and fails to entirely keep the secret of what he's doing from his students.

* In episode 23 of ''KeroroGunsou'', Keroro tries to use the (malfunctioning) Kero-Ball to fix one of his Gundam model kits, but accidentally activates the "Copy" function instead, which results in hundreds of Keroro clones infesting the Hinata house and the base. He plans to use these clones to help him take over the planet, but they're all as lazy and goofy as he is and would rather slack off. What's worse, he later learns that unless he gets rid of the clones somehow, the Kero-Ball will overload and all the Keroros (including the original) will vanish.
* However, the ''Keroro'' example above is directly lifted from the main plot of another series, ''Shichinin no Nana''/''Anime/SevenOfSeven'' (one of the recurring characters in [=SoS=] is from ''Keroro'', so it goes both ways). The seven Nanas, however, are all considered separate people, unlike many examples on this page. All we can say for the girl's love interest is, you poor lucky bastard, getting seven girls who all want you (and likely aren't afraid of sharing)...

* [[AnIcePerson Mizore]] from ''RosarioToVampire'' can create "ice clones" of herself and her friends, which seem to be able to operate independently, though they don't last long. They're quite fragile as well, so she doesn't use them as backup combatants.
* ''CodeBreaker'': [[spoiler: Heike]] can split himself into 100 clones as a result of his [[spoiler: light]] powers combining with his superior intelligence.

* In ''Manga/CastleTownDandelion'', Misaki has this as her RoyaltySuperpower. ''All For One'', allows her to make seven copies of herself. Each copy reflects a facet of Misaki's personality, and each is ''really really'' good at one subject, which annoys Misaki to no end, as Misaki herself is otherwise bland and doesn't excel in anything in particular.
