Strongest Genjutsu Types
I have a theory(btw, really sorry if this is redundant, made before or anything) about the classification of genjutsu and which ones are the strongest. I'll go about this by examining 5 examples of genjutsu shown in the manga, and try to use that to support my theory, which is: genjutsu's that require a direct appeal to either one of the 5 senses (sight, hearing, touch,taste,smell) are the strongest types of genjutsu.
I'm putting them into 2 different categories for the purpose of this thread . Namely;
1. Standard Genjutsu's
2. Sensory Genjutsu's.
There are 3 distinct examples of these that i feel have been shown in the manga. They are:
1.Genjutsu using handsigns, such as the one used by the hidden cloud jounin Sensory Genjutsu's
on Sasuke and Jugo.
2. Kurenai has been known as a genjutsu expert, and i have never seen her
use a genjutsu which needed an input to any of the sensory organs. I
suspect she is in the same category as the hidden cloud nin above.
3. Genjutsu was placed on everyone present at the end of the chuunin exams
and is the 3rd case.
2 examples of extremely powerful, extremely well heard of genjutsu's in this list:
1. The toad song. A croaking duet is played by the two elder toads, Ma and Manga Links
Pa, respectively. It was strong enough to immobilize three bodies of Pain.
It requires time to hit the right frequency to take effect.(Hearing)
2. Itachi Uchiha's tsukiyomi. Arguably the strongest genjutsu in all of naruto,
the victim just has to look into the sharingan eye, and be trapped in 3
days of torture, a moment in the real world.(Sight)
3. Blade of Totsuka in Itachi's susanoo. Any who are pierced by this blade are
sealed into an eternal world of genjutsu.(Touch).
1.The hidden cloud ninja using genjutsu by handsigns:
2. Itachi's Tsukiyomi:

3. Use of a handsign to inflict genjutsu in the chuunin exam arc:
Genjutsu which require to be either have the victim hear, see or feel
something are the strongest types of genjutsu NOT those with handsigns
+ reps would be nice, this took sum time.
