    Genjutsu is the second subcategory of Jutsu used in NV. The other two being Ninjutsu (physical use of chakra) and Taijutsu (hand to hand). Genjutsu, like Ninjutsu, also uses chakra to employ itself in battle. Some genjutsu also require hand seals to mold the necessary chakra for usage. The basic principle of genjutsu is to manipulate the opponent's chakra flow in their body (specifically the brain) causing their senses to be manipulated and changes. The principle use of genjutsu is to manipulate one's sight and hearing. However other genjutsu can go further and manipulate smell and touch. This is unlike taijutsu and ninjutsu because both of these are based on the principle of causing direct physical damage.

    Genjutsu is most commonly used to create false impressions for the body which can lead to a number of occurrences such as false images and pain. The pain can be caused by genjutsu because pain is something the mind experiences. If you fool the body into believing it is in pain, the mind will respond accordingly.

    Genjutsu requires one to have a high intelligence and very keen observational skills. If one does not use both of these skills then the targeted victim of a genjutsu will be able to recognize and take the necessary actions to escape it. Probably the most famous user of genjutsu I can think of is Itachi Uchiha. His Tsukuyomi, a dojutsu of the Mangekyo Sharingan, was capable of manipulating a person's sense of time within the genjutsu making 1 second appear as 3 days.

    To escape a genjutsu one must first be able to recognize that they are in one. There are many genjutsu that are easily recognized. However some are extremely subtle and require keen knowledge and understanding of how the genjutsu works. There are three methods of escape from a genjutsu.

    The first is Kai - Release.

    Rank: C-S
    Type: Supplementary
    Range: Short
    Chakra Cost: 15-40
    Damage Points: N/A
    Description: The user does one hand seal to focus and then proceeds to disturb his chakra flow by forcefully stopping it momentarily and then "spiking" his spiritual energy, unbalancing his chakra. This dispels any genjutsu set upon the user except MS Eye Techniques, Paralysis-like Genjutsu and Demonic Illusion: Toad Confrontation Chant. The effectiveness of this technique is dependent upon the skill of the user. A Jounin rank ninja can dispel Genjutsu up to C-rank. An S-class ninja can dispel Genjutsu up to B-rank. A Sannin rank ninja can dispel Genjutsu up to A-rank. A Sage rank user can dispel Genjutsu up to S-Rank. The user may use this technique through physical contact on others to dispel them from Genjutsu. The technique can only be used once per turn and the user still needs to fully follow the logic as to why he figured out it was an illusion.



    A genjutsu can be released through Kai by disturbing one's own chakra flow. Additionally if you have a partner in a battle with you they can use this technique on you by touching you and disturbing your own chakra flow as well.

    The second method to releasing a genjutsu is physical pain. By causing your own body physical harm outside of the genjutsu world you bring your mind back to its senses. However the stronger the genjutsu used the more pain is required. An S-ranked genjutsu would require you to slice deep into your body, almost severing important arteries. This can be almost fatal.

    The third and final way to release a genjutsu is to release chakra from all over your body. This will act as a way to disrupts its flow as well. One jutsu that will allow for this to work is this:

    Rank: S
    Type: Offense/Defence/Supplementary
    Range: Short
    Chakra Cost: 40 (-15 per turn)
    Damage Points: N/A
    Description: The user releases a burst of earth chakra from all over his body. As he does this, a multitude of rock seemingly grows from his skin, forming a large, dense armour or rock much bigger and bulkier than the users original size. The armour can be manipulated and used to create extendable weapons to strike a target with like rudimentary swords or hammers. The downside is that the user cannot mold techniques from other elements a part from earth while sustaining the armor. The armor can be manifested in only specific parts of the body if the user so chooses.



    Finally, the most noted genjutsu dojutsu is the Sharingan. The Sharingan is capable of producing many genjutsu without eye contact which is what many regular genjutsu require. Additionally, Sharingan users are able to pierce through genjutsu easily and see through its manipulative effects. Rinnegan users and Byakugan users will also be able to recognize when one is under the effects of a genjutsu because their chakra flow will be strange and different to them.

    I don't think I missed anything . Apologies if I did!

    Re: Crutch teaches me how to confuse my enemies

    Genjutsu is similar to Ninjutsu because it requries chakra like all techniques, but it is different because unlike Ninjutsu there is no physical manifestation of chakra. The chakra doesn't actually turn into a physical attack. Genjutsu attacks the opponent's mind. It affects the prosencephalon structure of the brain. The most important thing to remember about this section of the brain is that it controls emotions. Remember the Genjutsu cannot be used to force an opponent to do an exact action unless it is high level such as MS or EMS, or other really powerful Genjutsu. Common Genjutsu simply provide the opponent's mind with a proper situation in which the user inserts a certain basic response to the situation that is to the user's advantage. Those with sensing abilities or eye techniques (to the appropriate strength) can see and feel the differences in what is in their mind and what is actually happening.

    Genjutsu is produced by inserting the user's chakra into the opponent's brain. The user manipulates his chakra in the opponent's Chakra Circulatory System in the opponent's brain to manipulate the opponent's senses to make the opponent see, hear, or even feel what the user wants them to.

    Tell me the ways you can combat Genjutsu if you are caught in it. Describe the process of what you would think about when you may believe you are affect.

    Re: Crutch teaches me how to confuse my enemies

    Well there are three ways to combat a genjutsu. But before I get into those one must first recognize they are in a genjutsu before releasing themselves from it. Some genjutsu are obvious to spot. They would be ones that add extra opponents to the battlefield that were not there originally. If the opponent hadn't used a clone technique to create these illusions then it is an obvious genjutsu. Also other genjutsu are easy to spot because of the actions the opponent can take in them. Such as turning into birds. Basically as long as we have a logical reason for the genjutsu we can escape it.

    Now onto the three ways to escape:

    The first one is through the use of Genjutsu release, or Kai. It allows one to release themselves from a genjutsu by disrupting their chakra flow. The rank the genjutsu that can be escaped is directly related to what the user's rank is.

    Rank: C-S
    Type: Supplementary
    Range: Short
    Chakra Cost: 15-40
    Damage Points: N/A
    Description: The user does one hand seal to focus and then proceeds to disturb his chakra flow by forcefully stopping it momentarily and then "spiking" his spiritual energy, unbalancing his chakra. This dispels any genjutsu set upon the user except MS Eye Techniques, Paralysis-like Genjutsu and Demonic Illusion: Toad Confrontation Chant.

A Sannin rank ninja can dispel Genjutsu up to A-rank. A Sage rank user can dispel Genjutsu up to S-Rank. The user may use this technique through physical contact on others to dispel them from Genjutsu. The technique can only be used once per turn and the user still needs to fully follow the logic as to why he figured out it was an illusion.



    A genjutsu can be released through Kai by disturbing one's own chakra flow. Additionally if you have a partner in a battle with you they can use this technique on you by touching you and disturbing your own chakra flow as well.

    The second method to releasing a genjutsu is physical pain. By causing your own body physical harm outside of the genjutsu world you bring your mind back to its senses.
