5 Impersonation Of Individual Chakra Is A Possibility
Every ninja in the Naruto series has its own chakra. While performing any kind of Jutsu, chakra is an essential factor. Since every ninja has a signature chakra, sensor type ninjas are easily able to discern and detect it. The chakra of a person also depends upon their lineage i.e., their clan, hence making it unique.
When Sasuke is accused of plotting against Konoha, the accusation is further strengthened when his chakra is detected. In disbelief, Sakura gets to know from Tsunade that a ninja”s chakra can be impersonated without their knowledge if the other person has ample samples of their skin and hair.
