Doppelganger Spin is a technique where someone creates several harmless illusions of themselves. The current image does a poor job of illustrating this. Thanks to the picture being a Pokemon, there's little to no indication whether it's illustrating fake copies of a single Pokemon or if it's depicting multiple Pokemon of the same species. I think it's better to have a picture of a human doing this to show that it really is a technique rather than just a group of look-a-likes. The Narutowiki has a nice screenshot of a standard Clone technique in progress, complete with one of them being a nifty translucent copy. Another page from the Narutowiki has a screenshot of a different type of Clone technique. Shows Naruto ineffectively punching one of them, showing the illusionary nature of the clones. Thoughts?

I like 1.2
I vote for 1.1
Float like a bee,sting like a butterfly.
1.1, as it has the clones. 1.2 could easily be a Projection and that's not this trope. Also, why do I get the impression that "ninja" in the Naruto-verse is substantially the same thing as "Wizard" in the Septimus Heap-universe?
Found the episode with the Flame of Recca example. Shows doppelgangers, circle and telltale(one holding a Sword Cane).

Looks rather weak to me.
Seems like 5.1 illustrates the trope much more strongly than the other suggestions, am I missing something?
No, the other one.
To me, in 5.1 it looks like a circle of persons that belong to a same clan or so.
Anime-ted5.1 is alright but the closeup pics make more clear that it's clones of one person.
Sweeto!I'd vote for a two-part image using both pictures of 5, first the old man duplicating, and then the result surrounding.

TerradorablyfyingI like both 1.1 and 1.2. The images in 5 work but are not as good. I don't think a two-panel image is merited here.

Uploading 1.1 to see how it looks like

No, the other one.Is the variant where a character moves fast enough to create aftershadows part of the trope? 'Cause that's what looks like to me.
Speed Echoes. 14 does not look like that.
It's not trailing the same way. I don't think too many would confuse them.

Yes, it does. It's confused two people already.

Videoludus ergo sumI'm ok with either 1.1 or 5.2. But mostly 1.1.

"We are not a stuffy encyclopedic wiki. We're a buttload more informal".
No, the other one.I'm mostly against 1.1 for above mentioned reasons.

For (Food) Science!I'm also against 1.1 for the same reasons described above. Personally, I think the current image is fine, if a bit blurry. 5.2 is also OK, though
Anime-tedThis one's ready to call. The new pic's up, potholed, and tagged, and the rest are on the Image Links page. Caption or no?
I think we should have something lampshading that only the middle one is holding a sword.
