Mangekyou Sharingan & The 8 Most Powerful Genjutsu Of The Uchiha clan


Discover the Mangekyou Sharingan and the 8 most powerful genjutsu of the Uchiha clan with Naruto Universe Blog

The Mangekyou Sharingan is an advanced form of the Sharingan from the Uchiha clan. Unlike normal Sharingan, Mangekyou Sharingan is different for each person, so the genjutsu they can perform is also different.

The strongest magic moves of the Mangekyou Sharingan can be mentioned as Amaterasu (Hell Fire), Tsukuyomi (Moon God), Kamui (space twisting), Susanoo (God of the sea and storms)…

Tsukuyomi – God of the Moon

Tsukuyomi is one of the most powerful genjutsu of the ninja world performed by the possessor of the Mangekyou Sharingan eyes. Uchiha Itachi used his right eye to perform Tsukuyomi, but because the technique was dangerous to the user himself, he limited its use.

Tsukuyomi requires “eye contact”, so the user must look directly into the opponent’s eyes to be able to install the genjutsu. The person hit by the technique will fall into an illusion and be completely controlled, losing all ability to counterattack.

Although Tsukuyomi’s duration lasts only a few seconds, the user can torment the victim, causing mental damage that lasts in the hallucination for as long as he wants.

For an ordinary person, escaping from Tsukuyomi was impossible, but being a member of the Uchiha clan was different. Especially for those who have Mangekyou Sharingan, it is as easy as turning a hand.

In addition, Tsukuyomi was the genjutsu that Madara Uchiha used to carry out his Moon Eye plan.

Susanoo – God of the sea and storms

Most Mangekyou Sharegan owners can use 2 eyes (except for Shisui, who only needs 1 eye) to create a giant sword-wielding ghost called Susanoo.

Susanoo’s initial form is just a skeleton, but as the story progresses, Susanoo gains more flesh, armor, and depending on the castor, Susanoo uses different weapons.

For example, Sasuke’s Susanoo uses a bow and arrow in his left arm, while Itachi’s Susanoo uses a sword and shield.

Although rated as an impregnable defensive shield, Susanoo also has the fatal drawback of causing its operator to gradually lose sight.

Uchiha Madara and Uchiha Sasuke are two exceptions that can use Susanoo “cool” because they have Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan – a sharingan combined by 2 Mangekyou Sharingan of two siblings.

Kamui – God of Power

Kamui – God of Power

Kamui is a unique and specialized jutsu performed by the three possessors of the Mangekyō Sharingan: Kakashi Hatake, Obito Uchiha, and Madara Uchiha.

Kamui creates a separate spiral-shaped space-time that allows the user to easily teleport themselves or objects through that particular space. The size of the object to be teleported is proportional to the amount of chakra needed.

In particular, each pair of Mangekyō Sharingan eyes will have a different and separate teleportation space. Even the Fourth Hokage has admitted that Kamui is superior to his Body Jutsu in teleporting through space.

In particular, Kamui can be seen as Uchiha Obito’s signature ninjutsu when he uses both Kamui’s abilities to teleport and “penetrate” at a superior level.

Amaterasu – Heaven of Heaven

Amaterasu – Heaven of Heaven

Amaterasu is performed by someone who has awakened the Mangekyō Sharingan eyes, however throughout the Naruto series we only see brothers Uchiha Itachi and Uchiha Sasuke using this jutsu.

This is a destructive black flame that incinerates everything within sight of the user of Amaterasu and cannot be extinguished unless the person (or thing) is afflicted with ash or is under the control of the Mangekyou Sharingan.

Just like when using Susanoo, if you abuse this high level Fire Release technique a lot, the user’s eyesight will be severely affected.



Izanagi is a powerful genjutsu that is classified as a forbidden technique of the Uchiha clan but is still used by Danzou, Madara Uchiha, and Uchiha Obito.

The condition to use this jutsu is that the user must possess the power of both the Uchiha and Senju clans.

When Izanagi is activated, the barrier between reality and illusion seems to be removed, allowing the user to control their own existence in the surrounding space.

However, although this technique can nullify all attacks of the opponent, the price to pay for this magic is too high. That is, every 1 use of Izanagi corresponds to 1 eye that will permanently lose its light and close.

In addition, the True Sage of the Six Paths used this technique to create the Ten-Tails Jyubi.


Unlike other genjutsu, Izanami is a genjutsu created to save those who are too dependent on Izanagi.

Izanami is like a ninjutsu that determines other people’s fates because being involved in this jutsu will never get out of Izanami’s cycle unless the person admits his mistake and accepts reality, then the genjutsu will automatically disappear. prize.

While Tsukuyomi requires eye contact to cast, Izanami works based on the senses of the performer and the person affected.

Like all other attacks of the Mangekyou Sharingan, Izanami also forces the user to do something, in this case losing an eye forever.

Kotoamatsukami – Goodbye Angel

Uchiha Shisui is the only one who can perform the Kotoamatsukami genjutsu because of his Mangekyou Sharingan eyes.

Kotoamatsukami is an advanced genjutsu that penetrates the minds of others and controls them without even the victim realizing they are being controlled.

It was thanks to this genjutsu (activated by the left eye Shisui implanted on the crow) that Uchiha Itachi was able to escape the reincarnation’s control of the Impure Earth and slay Kabuto.

The power that Kotoamatsukami brings makes many power ambitions coveted. It is worth mentioning that this magic takes 10 years to reactivate.

Tensha Fuuin – Sealed Celestial Chariot

Tensha Fuuin – Sealed Celestial Chariot

With the Mangekyou Sharingan, the user can create a ninjutsu that activates after a certain period of time called Tensha Fuuin.

For example, Madara used this sealing technique to save Izanagi in his right eye, so he escaped death when he fought the First Hokage Hashirama, fooling everyone into thinking he was dead.

Or like Itachi before his death, to protect his younger brother from Madara’s (Obito impersonation) attempts, he installed Amaterasu in Sasuke’s left eye. Amaterasu will automatically activate upon seeing Madara’s Sharingan.

When that happens, Sasuke’s eyes will bleed and transform into Itachi’s Mangekyou Sharingan form, while releasing black flames that burn Madara.
