Elemental Bunshin are a step up from the E-rank Bunshin no Jutsu. Whereas the Bunshin is barely more than a slightly substantial illusion, Elemental Bunshin are far sturdier and combat capable. They are formed using the element indicated in their name, with a shell of chakra to hold the appearance of the user. These Bunshin are, however, not as powerful as the user, and only equal approximately 10% of the user's strength.

The seemingly weakest of the Elemental Bunshin is the Kaze Bunshin no Jutsu (Wind Clone Technique). It utilizes compressed air to fill the shell that imitates the user's appearance. Once the shell is damaged sufficiently, the shell shatters to allow the compressed air within to explode outward with some force like a close range area of effect Fuuton: Reppushou. It is particularly useful to break up enemy formations or provide additional air to enhance the effects of Katon jutsu.

The Mizu Bunshin no Jutsu (Water Clone Technique) utilizes water to fill in the shell created to imitate the user's appearance. Should the
shell representing the user's main body be broken - such as with a stab or slash wound - the appearance fades away and the shell collapses, splashing the water down on the general area. Like the Kaze Bunshin, the Mizu Bunshin is weak to offense jutsu in general, though this clone technique can be quite durable against Suiton techniques.

By comparison, the Iwa Bunshin no Jutsu (Rock Clone Technique) utilizes rock and soil to create the bunshin with the shell on top to imitate the user's appearance as with the Mizu Bunshin. This particular Bunshin is fairly durable and able to take slightly more damage than most Bunshin types, but sufficient destruction of the form will cause it to lose its appearance and crumble to the ground. It is naturally weak against Raiton jutsu, and strong against many Suiton and Katon techniques.
