Re: Q&a - open for every ranks!
any technique that is basically a FULL BODY CHAKRA SURGE would be able to release from genjutsu up to one rank lower than it is.
Genjutsu Release restrictions:
►A Genjutsu is a disruption in your own chakra flow that messes with your senses and makes you experience an illusion. To dispel it you need to create a stronger disruption (or unbalance/fluctuation) that will clear the one forcefull put upon you and leave your chakra on its normal state. So basically, there is only one way to dispel genjutsu: disrupting, disturbing or unbalancing (all words you can use) your chakra flow.
Now, this can be done in 3 basic ways:
1- Altering the balance between physical and spiritual energies in your chakra by disturbing your physical energy. This is done by producing pain. Pain comes from the body and thus it makes your physical energy fluctuate. Because of this fluctuation your chakra flow experiences a spike. This spike is a disturbance that will dispel other disturbances present in your chakra by unbalacing its flow. The higher the pain, the bigger the spike. The more resistant or accostumed to pain your bio is, the less effect this has. Bitting your lip or your tongue is not enough. Bitting a chunk of your lip or bitting off your tongue will be enough but with the underlining consequences.
2- Altering the balance between physical and spiritual energies in your chakra by disturbing your spiritual energy. This is done by your sheer will power. Its done by forcefully creating a surge of chakra in your body by spiking your spiritual energy through will power alone, forcing yourself to mold and channel your chakra in a way that will either halt the chakra flow or disturb it. It can be done in 2 ways: through a technique named Kai or through techniques that produce a high surge of chakra on your chakra flow. In this last case, you need to have a technique that is at least one rank higher than the genjutsu set upon you for the case of elemental techinques, or 2 ranks for the case of raw chakra techniques. An example of this is Raiton: Chidori Nagashi, an A-Rank full body technique that requires no hand seal and can dispel up to B-Rank Genjutsu set upon you. Another example is the opening of one of the Eight Inner Gates. Upon opening, the sudden release of chakra disturbs any genjutsu affecting you up to the same rank as the technique of the gate.
3- Altering your chakra flow through the introduction of foreign chakra. This can be done by an ally or by entering for example, sage mode or being a jinchuriki in control of your bijuu. The truth is that as foreign chakra enters your system or another energy (natural energy), your chakra flow becomes altered and unbalanced and thus releases the genjutsu.
All of these produce a reset-like effect on your chakra flow, making it return to normal and dispelling the Genjutsu. However, one most not forget that for a release to be valid, it ALWAYS needs to be partnered with a logical and reasonable explanation of how, from your perspective, you figured out it was a Genjutsu/Illusion and thus felt the need to release from it. Releasing from it by "luck" or "because i know its a genjutsu" without stating the why isn't valid.
This is quite self explanatory. The main part however, that people fail to accomplish is the bolded part.
Also, yes, the higher then gen, the higher the pain it needs. A forbidden or S-rank Gen would require a kunai to the hip for example, or breaking a teeth, or something that would produce intense pain like breaking one of the major bones (although with consequences...). A-Rank I would see been released from finger breaking, etc. B-Rank can be by anything described before. C-rank perhaps bitting your tongue would be enough. And etc etc. Just remember that doing so takes a drastic effect on your body.
Not all genjutsu affect everyone around. Only certain ones. Its not a wide rule. If the gen doesn't state it or it hasn't been shown capable of doing it, then it doesn't do it.
Self Genjutsu is theoretically possible and has been done in cjs countless times so far. But the gen needs to be designed and made specifically for that. You can't cast bringer of darkness on yourself. If the gen isn't designed for it, it won't work.
