(Doton Genjutsu: Dou Ion) Earth Release Illusion: Ionic Mayhem
Rank: Forbidden Rank
Damage: 90 (-15 to the user)
To overcome the main weakness of Genjutsu (range), Scorps and Emperor found a way to induce genjutsu at higher distances. They found that if they used elemental manipulation and chakra as the medium for genjutsu, they could power the genjutsu longer and to higher effects. However, this also meant that this genjutsu would suffer from elemental weakness when facing elemental surges from the enemy as a release attempt. The user will do 3 hand seals (Boar+Rat+Horse) and unleash his earth chakra into the enemies body. Doing so he manipulates the minerals in the enemies body to alter his metabolism and mess with his ionic balance. Although many effects could be achieved with this same principle, the only one that one is capable of achieving without direct physical contact and medical knowledge is a type of madness or confusion linked to the accumulation of urea and creatinine in the central nervous system (as the ionic balance of minerals is messed up so is the renal functions, leading to the accumulation of said toxins). This induces several illusions and visions that mess up the enemies perception of reality. A type of madness that manifests in demonic torturing visions that eventually lead to the enemies loss of conscience. The technique, however, has some severe weaknesses. Clones are completely unaffected by it and the technique can only target one enemy. Not only that, but due to the immense power and control it commands, one can only use it twice per battle and the sheer physical and energetic requirements to use it will damage the user, making him unable to mold other forbidden rank techniques the next turn after its use. If released, the enemy's metabolism will quickly (if he is healthy and in a normal state) return the ionic balance to normal and the enemy will only feel fatigue for 3 turns (due to the energy needed to restore the balance) that might hinder his reactions and weaken his Taijutsu (-15 damage) and Speed (loss of one rank, inability to open EIG). However, if unreleased, the mental stress will lead to complete loss of conscience and mental breakdown. To release this Genjutsu the enemy must only apply a large amount of pain that will expel the users chakra from his body and thus his influence.
