Naruto: The Strongest Genjutsu Techniques

Here is everything you need to know about Naruto: the strongest Genjutsu techniques.

Infinite Tsukuyomi

The Infinite Tsukuyomi is capable of trapping all the inhabitants of a planet in a trance-like state. Here, they will experience illusions for their entire lives. Gradually be drained of their chakra to fuel a God Tree and its chakra fruit.

Casting this Genjutsu requires the user to have a Rinne Sharingan, the chakra of the Ten-Tails, and ideally, two Rinnegan to be able to resist its influence. This technique was a central factor in the Fourth Shinobi World War. A caster must reflect their Rinne Sharingan off the face of the Moon.

Kotoamatsukami is potent Genjutsu of the highest calibre, granting users the power to enter a target’s mind. It creates false experiences that make a victim feel as if they are acting of their own free will.

The sheer power of this Genjutsu made it the stuff of legend and made Shisui’s Sharingan extremely sought after. Kotoamatsukami can be only used once in ten years unless the user possesses the DNA of Hashirama Senju. But it cannot be used more than once a day, highlighting how overpowering its effects can be.


Tsukuyomi is the ability associated with Itachi Uchiha’s Mangekyo Sharingan. Unlike his other Genjutsu, which can be cast with almost no effort. When this condition is met, the victim will be trapped in an illusion where Itachi can manipulate time freely.

targets are usually rendered comatose, and few, if any emerge from the ordeal unscathed. Normal methods of countering Genjutsu are ineffective with Tsukuyomi. Only extremely powerful Sharingan users can break free from the illusion. The technique is extremely taxing and is part of the reason behind Itachi’s blindness towards the end of his life.

Izanagi and Izanami

Izanagi allows a Sharingan user to rewrite reality for as long as the Genjutsu is active. Said to be one of the most prized abilities of the Sharingan. This technique applies the illusion to reality itself. Once the user activates Izanagi, it permits them to nullify anything that happens to them.

Izanami is a Genjutsu that traps victims in an infinite loop that they cannot break free of. It is cast by memorizing and recreating sensations from interactions between the caster and target.

Genjutsu: Bringer-of-Darkness Technique

This technique places an illusion on the victim’s eyes, where they are unable to see anything but pitch-black darkness. This leaves them extremely vulnerable to attacks.

First used during the Konoha Crush, this Genjutsu creates the feeling of being in a deep hole with no light. However, targets will still be able to sense attacks through other means.
