Genjutsu (Illusion Techniques)
Demonic Illusion Genjutsu techniques are the illusion techniques of a ninja, they normally require hand seals. Genjutsu will use hypnotism to cause hallucinations in others. By causing such illusions they can cause their target mental pain and suffering just as real as physical hurt. Genjutsu is created when a ninja extends their chakra flow through the cerebral nervous system of their opponent to control their minds chakra, thereby affecting their five senses.

To combat the effects of Genjutsu, there are two options. The first option is for the ninja to stop the flow of chakra in their body, and then apply an even stronger power to disrupt the flow of the casters chakra. The second option is to have an outside ninja unaffected by the Genjutsu make body contact, and use their chakra to disrupt the casters flow.

Izanagi - Forefather God
Izanagi Character Use: Rikudou Sennin, Shimura Danzou, Uchiha Madara
Rank: -
Note: Special Bloodline Technique
Range: Close (0m ~ 5m)
Type: Supplementary
Details: In myth, the god Izanagi beget the gods Amaterasu, Tsukuyomi and Susanoo.
Izanagi
Izanagi, named for a god who helped spawn many islands and deities, is a Genjutsu technique which was declared a Kinjutsu by the Uchiha Clan. Using Izanagi grants the user the ability to turn wounds and disadvantages into nothing more than dream. It also makes attacks and advantageous maneuvers real, thus giving one complete control over their own reality through an illusion cast on themselves. The creative power of Izanagi was first used the Rikudou Sennin. Izanagi uses the mind and spiritual power of Yin to shape reality, and the vitality and physical power of Yang to give it life. The Rikudou used that same power to create the Bijuu from the Juubi. The Rikudou's powers were passed on to the Uchiha and Senju, and only one containing both of their power can use the jutsu.

When jutsu is cast on one's own self, any damage received while it is active is negated. Their crippled form will shudder away like an illusion into nothingness while they appear unharmed away from the danger. For those who do not possess the Rinnegan, using the jutsu has a drawback, as using the jutsu will cause their vision to be lost forever. This result caused the Uchiha to declare it forbidden.

The jutsu normally has a short time limit which varies from Uchiha clan member to clan member. This was extended through the experimentation of Orochimaru, which granted almost a minute of immortality for each eye sacrificed. This was used to full effect when ANBU Root leader Danzou had a portion of Senju Hashirama and numerous viable Sharingans implanted in his right arm. This extended time was active at the cost of an ongoing drain on Danzou's chakra. So when active, it allowed him to absorb numerous fatal attacks at the cost of one of the Sharingan eyes permanently closing on his arm and becoming useless. Should Danzou need to conserve chakra and protect the eyes, he would cancel the jutsu and attempt to avoid critical hits.

It is regarded as Uchiha Shisui's ultimate Genjutsu of his Mangekyou eyes. This power helped Shisui be regarded as the most powerful Genjutsu user of the Uchiha. His skills were so legendary, that he decided to end his own life for fear his eyes fall into the wrong hands. In their normal Mangekyou state, each eye can cast one mind control jutsu approximately every decade. No direct eye contact with the victim was needed, as Kotoamatsukami could be cast while still being covered and hidden with cloth. However the victim still needed to be within the vicinity. Godaime Mizukage regarded Kotoamatsukami as being similar to the jutsu used to control her predecessor Yagura by the man known as Tobi.

Shisui's right eye was taken and implanted by ANBU Root leader Danzou. With the addition of genetic material from Senju Hashirama, Danzou was able to utilize Kotoamatsukami on a much more frequest basis, though not more than once in single day. To that end he used the ability to help him become the preliminary Rokudaime Hokage and almost become supreme leader of the shinobi alliance. Shisui enrusted his left eye with his friend Uchiha Itachi, who implanted the eye in a crow. This crow he later implanted into Naruto, with the added command that upon seeing Itachi's Mangekyou eye again, it would cast the command "Protect Konoha" back at the Mangekyou holder. Kotoamatsukami was so powerful, that it was able to overlay a new command on Itachi, who had been resurrected via Edo Tensei.
