Afterimage Sorcery is a Unique Technique that creates a transparent afterimage.


Afterimage Sorcery is a magical skill, similar in essence to the Afterimage Fist, that allows the user to confuse their foe by creating a transparent, 3-D image of themselves. While similar in essence to the Zanzōken, its execution is different, as the technique itself is sorcery.[1]


  • Despite being a different technique with a similar result, Afterimage Sorcery is typically grouped together with the Afterimage Fist in games.
