Why can NARUTO make so many CLONES?
Naruto Uzumaki is characterized by always using his secret technique called Shadow Clone Jutsu. This jutsu allows him to create multiple physical copies of himself, making him a formidable opponent in battles. However, many fans of the series have wondered how Naruto is able to create so many clones compared to other shinobi, who can only create up to a maximum of 5 clones, a fact that seems to defy human endurance.
Naruto has the ability to create up to 1000 shadow clones because, apart from being from the Uzumaki clan, which is characterized by having huge reserves of chakra, he is also the jinchuriki of the Nine-Tailed Fox, the most powerful bijuu of all, with the greatest amount of chakra.

The Shadow Clone Jutsu is considered a forbidden jutsu because it requires dividing chakra equally, and the more clones you create, the more you have to divide the chakra, which is why an ordinary shinobi cannot create more than 5 clones. If they try to create more clones, their life could be in danger.
Naruto is the only exception, as we said before, since he possesses the chakra of the Nine-Tailed Fox, he can create as many clones as he wants, up to a maximum of 1000 copies of himself.
