Questiona bout Wikipedia jutsu information and Kage Bunshin no Jutsu

I was reaidng through the Jutsu listing on Wikipedia earleir todfay and i found soemthing that got me wondering. Here is the entry for Kage Bunshin no Jutsu

Shadow Clone Technique

Naruto using the Shadow Clone Technique.

* Name: Kage Bunshin no Jutsu, 影分身の術, literally "Shadow Clone Technique", "Shadow Doppelganger Technique", or "Shadow Replication Technique", Early Viz "Art of the Doppelganger", Recent Viz "Art of the Shadow Doppelganger", English TV "Shadow Clone Jutsu", UK DVD "Art of Shadow Body Splitting"
* Type: B-rank, Supplementary
* Users: Naruto Uzumaki, some Jonin-level ninja

Similar to the Clone Technique, this jutsu creates clones of the user. Unlike the Clone Technique, these clones are actual copies, not illusions. The user's chakra is evenly distributed among every clone, giving each clone an equal fraction of the user's overall power. The clones are capable of performing jutsu on their own and can even bleed, but will usually disperse after one or two solid blows. Unlike other clones, they can't be detected by the Byakugan because the clones have the exact same amount of chakra and aren't made from any other substance, making them indistinguishable from the actual person. Sasuke Uchiha claims that the Sharingan can tell the difference during his battle with Naruto at the Valley of the End.

Any experience the clones gain during their existence is transferred to the user once they are dispersed. This makes the technique ideal for spying, since the user can simply send a clone to spy on a target, then have the clone disperse itself without returning to pass the information back to the user. It's also useful for training purposes, since the total amount of experience the user gains is multiplied by the total number of clones being used to train. Using it in this manner is is far more difficult, however, since a large number of clones are needed to make a significant difference in the training time. It's unclear if other types of clones possess this advantage.

This technique is considered dangerous because of the manner in which the clones are created. Because the user divides their chakra among the clones, the user could potentially use up all their chakra fairly quickly if the user is low on chakra or makes too many clones, such as Naruto does with Multiple Shadow Clone Technique, this jutsu's enhanced form. Naruto is able to use this technique to the extremes that he does because of his tailed beast, the nine-tailed demon fox, which gives him an abnormally high chakra level. Even without the demon fox's chakra, Naruto can make quite a few clones, but nowhere near on the level he can when he has access to the demon fox's chakra. The technique can also be dangerous if the user is injured or has some otherwise debilitating physical condition at the time of the cloning, since all of the clones will be created in roughly the same state.
Essentially what the article is saying ios that the clones Naruto has been creating this whole time are actual clones not just shadow copies. However that dosen't seem to make any sense. If they were real why did the disperse after only one hit? Also where is either the anime or the manga does it say that Naruto gets the clones epxeriences? I know they said that in recent chapters but if that's the case then why didn't he simply make a few hundred clones of himself when he was learning Rasengen?

I gues sit just seems confusing that they are called Shadow Clones, hence the Kage in kage Bunshin yet now they're essentally "Power Leveiing" Naruto. Or perhaps the person whow rote the articel is getting Narutos current jutsu confused with the one he's currently learning or is it still the same jutsu?

I think it was said a long time ago (during the wave country arc) that the clones Naruto created were not simple clones.. As to why they get knocked out in one hit, its probably due to the amount of chakra put into making a clone.

Or, it's probably a plot device/hole/whatever, because if they didnt get KOed in one hit, Naruto would be godly using Taijuu Kage Bunshin.

As for why he didn't make a few hundred when learning rasengan.. He's pretty dense. He didnt realize that the clones worked that way until Kakashi told him.

They disperse after one hit because that is the property of the jutsu. If they were completely real and could stay untill death... that would cause a lot of problems...
