Tajuu KB is basically KB, only done massively, if Zabuza wanted to he could've named his Water clones spam Tajuu Mizu Bushin
I don't think it was the Taijuu version without the base one, at least

A totally random and unrelated thought stuck me:
isn't Shi, like, the only girly looking man in all of Kumo?
Even Samui's brother, whatever his name was, had a sort of charm in him, even though it was shadowed by how lame he was, like, below Kiba's level.
Even though it would go puff the next second.
KB is used only by large stamina people though because, otherwise, it would be useless:
a weak clone with little chakra and little lasting durability? One would deplete half of his chakra for nothing
It wouldn't be useless when used for it's main purpose, spying and distractions, situations where the chakra lost wouldn't be an issue. Naruto's the only person silly enough to use them regularly in battle, even the likes of Jiraiya doesn't depend upon them for that purpose. And as far as we've seen, they'll have weak durability regardless of the amount of chakra they're made from.
Here, it says the technique is "disengaged". Which I interpreted to mean that he deactivated the jutsu. the entire argument anyway went from Danzo not having Koto-amatsukami at all, to him having a weaker version than the crow. Which in all honesty, doesn't make much sense. The main argument for that is the Mifune situation versus the Itachi situation. However, if you think about it all it really did for Itachi was overwrite kabuto's control. Itachi could actually move as he wished. Afterward if he had to obey the command, he would've stabbed his little brother in the throat due to Sasuke making it clear that he wanted to destroy Konoha.
Even so though it brings up the question, if things had gone as Itachi had originally planned but Sasuke realized he was under genjutsu, would he be able to reject the command?
I didn't remember that at all, but even then you could interpret that as Danzou simply having a calm chakra system so he isn't currently using any jutsu vs. actually disengaging the genjutsu. Anyways, from the way Itachi used Kotoamatsukami, we know that its not a jutsu that needs to be channeled. I still think it works the similarly to the way I have described by implanting an order or idea into somebody's mind. It isn't active mind control.
With that said, I think Sasuke would be able to reject the command if he had realized he was under it. The problem is that Kotoamatsukami is said to be able to invade its targets mind without them ever knowing they were put into a genjutsu. Since Itachi should be dead, nobody would be able to convince Sasuke that he is actually under a genjutsu and that his will to protect Konoha isn't really his own at all.
The whole "channeling" thing was brought up as a way to differentiate the two eyes as if they were two different jutsu. Even with all the evidence pointing to it being the same thing. Kishimoto didn't actually spell it out for people until here. For some reason people just don't agree with Danzo having Koto-amatsukami.
I don't think its only a matter of chakra ( really, I think Kakashi at 50% has more chakra than 1/100 of Naruto ), I think its either mastery or mental strain.
Using KB for training, for example, could be perfect even with half of chakra, one would learn a lot.
The fact that Kakashi ( or Kishi, really ) made KB training obtainable only for Naruto makes you wonder if any ninja, even with a single KB, can make it last for long.
Here is my attempt at Obito x Shisui Mangekyou:
See? KB probably consumes chakra just by existing, and the flow of information back would fry someone's brain.
A single KB from a normal ninja imho could exist, at best, for what, 30 seconds? 1 minute?
Still pretty poor imho.
Let's not forget that Naruto, at 13, could mantain 4 henged KB for an entire night even without Kyuubi's chakra ( in the forest of Death against those Rain fodders )
