Genjutsu: Sharingan broadly refers to a compass of genjutsu performed with the Sharingan. It has besides been shown to be performed through the Sharingan ‘s higher evolutions : the Mangekyō Sharingan and the Rinnegan .


By establishing eye contact with a target, the Sharingan drug user traps them within a genjutsu which can be exploited for one of assorted purposes, such as : causing instantaneous — but irregular — passing of consciousness or paralysis in the target, [ 2 ] [ 3 ] forceful origin of data, [ 4 ] [ 5 ] relaying memories, [ 6 ] erasing memories, [ 7 ] removing genjutsu placed on the target by others, [ 8 ] and controlling a target ‘s actions. [ 9 ] [ 10 ] Members of the Uchiha kin are peculiarly celebrated for using their Sharingan to control the Nine-Tails, therefore much so that Konoha cursorily came to suspect Uchiha interest in the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox ‘s Attack. [ 11 ] Sasuke Uchiha is noted to be able to use the proficiency through his Rinnegan, to trap all the chase beasts in a genjutsu with a bare glance. [ 12 ] The illusions created by Genjutsu : Sharingan do not appear to have any trademark form, appearing vastly different between the same functions and even the same users. For case, Sasuke typically uses it to render targets unconscious, yet on the first occasion the target ‘s body is pierced with large feathers, [ 13 ] on another, the target is grasped and overwhelmed by a shady figure, [ 14 ] and on the third gear the target experiences Sasuke personally stabbing them. [ 15 ]


  • Sasuke[16] and Itachi Uchiha[17][18] have both been shown activating their Mangekyō Sharingan to cast genjutsu despite already having their regular Sharingan activated, implying that this technique is enhanced in some way by the evolved dōjutsu, or that there is a similar technique utilised only by the Mangekyō Sharingan.
  • A shadowy version of Sasuke’s humanoid Susanoo first appears in a genjutsu he creates,[14] only making a formal début several chapters later.
  • By making eye contact with a jinchūriki, Obito could use this technique to control the tailed beast sealed inside them, while its host remained unaffected.[19]
  • Despite genjutsu working by altering the chakra flow of a target’s cerebral nervous system, this technique affected Mecha-Naruto who doesn’t have a brain.[17]
  • Madara is shown having to deactivate his Rinnegan to his Mangekyō Sharingan to perform this technique.[20][21] However, this wasn’t required in Sasuke’s usage.[12]
