This is a Taijutsu technique developed by the Founder of Taijutsu, Itashi Uchiha. The user creates two shadow clones before proceeding to assault the enemy, with the clones attacking from the left and right and the user attacking from above. The assault occurs on three fronts simultaneously; it is almost impossible to catch the opponent flat-footed. Furthermore, the mighty attacks are so severe that receiving a blow from even one among the three will inevitably result in a fatal wound.

The magnificence this technique projects as the user and their shadow clones jump at the opponent's upper body leaves an afterimage and creates an orbital pattern, the elegance of which is reminiscent to the shape of a crescent moon, hence the technique's name.

In the anime, it is shown that getting hit by all three attackers of the technique results in a blow powerful enough to send the opponent flying through several walls of buildings.
