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.

I vote for 1.1

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

Looks rather weak to me.
1.1 > 1.2 > the others.
Seems like 5.1 illustrates the trope much more strongly than the other suggestions, am I missing something?
A Wizard boy
To me, in 5.1 it looks like a circle of persons that belong to a same clan or so.
5.1 is alright but the closeup pics make more clear that it's clones of one person.
I'd vote for a two-part image using both pictures of 5, first the old man duplicating, and then the result surrounding.

In uffish thought
I 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

Is the variant where a character moves fast enough to create aftershadows part of the trope? 'Cause that's what
looks like to me.
You're thinking of
. 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.

"We are not a stuffy encyclopedic wiki. We're a buttload more informal".
I'm mostly against 1.1 for above mentioned reasons.

Clock is set. Crowner?
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
I've hooked a crowner and hit the snooze.
Bump for votes.
This 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.
