everyone also stops using the switcheroo jutsu eventually or uses it extremely sparingly.

Tree branch no Jutsu by definition has a limited amount of uses before you break every branch in the world for your asspull dodges

Hunter x Hunter is as well mind you and that goes dark, really dark. It also touches on sending kids into these incredibly dangerous and crazy adventures and it actually affecting them and rather negatively at that.

This is one of the best moments in the bloated war arc, the fuck are you on about. It's classic Naruto.

So a question that I've always had, is the transformation jutsu an illusion, or is it actually shapeshifting? Cuz if it's shapeshifting that ridiculously overpowered, and you have to know this just to graduate the academy.

I think its illusion. Shapeshift wouldn't help all that much. Having Sakura's strength isn't worth much if you don't know how to use it. Unless we're assuming it also gives powers. Like someone could shapeshift into Sasuke or Hinata and have their eye magic.

Comes out of nowhere at the most out of place possible time. I get the intention but the execution is really off.

Well, when they were fighting Zabuza, Naruto turned himself into a large shuriken that Sasuke then threw (in fact, he was able to use an actual shuriken technique with it).

So yes, it's actually shapeshifting.

I always assumed transformations would "fall apart" if really put to the test, sort of like a clone poofing after it gets hit.
Like, the plan worked because the Naruto-shuriken actually missed. If it'd connected it probably would have bounced off like it was made of cardboard, or something.

Otherwise there's just no explaining why people aren't using it all the time.
Like, transform yourself small for infiltration. Transform your hands into knives. Transform into random objects in the environment to hide yourself - actually Naruto did that one at least once, but still: criminally underused.

I remember them still using that power in the later arcs. There's a part when Naruto disguises a bunch of his clones as rubble during the Pain fight, for instance.

Daily reminder that both Attack on Titan and Death Note are shonen manga, just because it's aim at kids doesn't mean it can't have exposition.

Naruto didn't:

Had an army of clones transform into rocks.
