While the user remains physically real while fighting, this technique is capable of turning any occurrence including injuries and even death inflicted upon themselves while the technique is active into mere "illusions". Whenever the user receives a fatal injury, he or she automatically fades away as though they were an illusion all along and then returns back to reality; physically real and unscathed. The technique is based on an ability the [[Sage of the Six Paths]] had, referred to as {{Translation|"''[[Creation of All Things]]''"|万物創造|Banbutsu Sōzō}}. The process he used is explained to have initially involved the administration of imagination, and the spiritual energy which forms the basis of [[Yin]] chakra to create shape and form from nothingness. Then, through the application of vitality, and the physical energy which forms the basis of [[Yang]] chakra, he would breathe life into the prior form. Thus, a technique with the power to turn imagination into reality was born, known as Izanagi.<ref name="chpt510">''Naruto'' chapter 510, pages 10-13</ref>

Although, using senju/Yang with the Uchiha's Izanagi can increase the time the user can allow reality to stay an illusion, but is not required at all. Only the sage's Izanagi is required both Uchiha and senju Yin/Yang powers.

NOTE: The Nine tailed beast are such a creation using Izanagi, created from the chakra of the tentails.
   
Izanagi can only be used by those with the genetic traits of the Sage of the Six Paths. The [[Uchiha]], descended from the Sage, are able to perform Izanagi with their [[Sharingan]]. In exchange for the brief control of reality that it allows them, the Sharingan with which Izanagi is cast becomes blind. For this reason the Uchiha labelled it a [[kinjutsu]]. [[Danzō Shimura]], in an effort to make practical use of the technique, had ten Sharingan embedded into his right arm.
 
   
To make full use of Izanagi, users must also have the genetic traits of the [[Senju]], who are also descended from the Sage.<ref name="chpt510"/> Partially for this reason Danzō had some of [[Hashirama Senju]]'s [[Wood Release|DNA]] transplanted into his arm, which extended the lifespan of each Sharingan's Izanagi to a minute, allowing him to use the technique for up to ten minutes in total, with breaks in between as he deemed necessary. However, because Danzō is not an Uchiha, his chakra levels drop substantially every time a new Sharingan is used to activate the technique.<ref>''Naruto'' chapters 478-479</ref> [[Obito]] also makes use of Hashirama's DNA but, in contrast to Danzō, he claims to have gained control over Hashirama's DNA and as such, boasts the completed form of Izanagi.<ref name="chpt510"/>

Users

Uchiha's Kinjutsu Izanagi is a genjutsu that is cast on the user instead of others and is the most powerful amongst this type of genjutsu.[1] When activated, the caster removes the boundaries between reality and illusion within their personal space. To a degree this allows the user to turn reality into an Illusion, but only for a brief moment.

While the user remains physically real while fighting, this technique is capable of turning any occurrence including injuries and even death inflicted upon themselves while the technique is active into mere "illusions". Whenever the user receives a fatal injury, he or she automatically fades away as though they were an illusion all along and then returns back to reality; physically real and unscathed. The technique is based on an ability the Sage of the Six Paths Yin/Yang IZANAGI

Sage of six paths Yin/Yang IZANAGI Ninjutsu was Originally the "Practical Application" of the sage's Creation of all things. Which in the Context of using Ninjutsu and genjutsu means that Izanagi was used for the "specific purpose of" creation of all things. Confirming that Izanagi is a creation technique that was used to create many things. not "Banbutsu souzou/creation of all things" which is just what the sage's Izanagi actually DOES. Obito even Confirmed that IZANAGI is a technique that can ONLY TRULY be used by those with the power of the Uchiha/YIN and Senju/Yang, the power of the Sage himself. And the Sage who was both clans/Bloodlines in one. The Uchiha/YIN and the Senju/Yang. The Sage was able to create Many Things.

By Administering Spiritual and Mental energy which Governs IMAGINATION and becomes the basis of YIN. Shape and Form can be created from Nothingness (Genjutsu basically) And By Administering Physical energy and Vitality which Govern Life and become the basis for YANG. One can Give LIEF to that shape and form (Basically creating a REAL Genjutsu)

A Technique with the Power to Bring IMAGINATION to LIFE, making it real. That is IZANAGI... As Confirmed by Obito.

NOTE: The sage's Izanagi is not to be confused with the Uchiha's Kinjutus Izanagi that comes in a pair with Izanami and ONLY requires the power of the Uchiha's YIN to cast the ultimate illusion on oneself to turn reality into an illusion for a brief moment to cheat death. At the cost of the users eye though. This is why Uchiha through out history have been able to use Izanagi. Not like senju DNA stealing has been going on before Madara. However, the Original Izanagi created and used by the SAGE is able to take IMAGINATION that govern YIN to create a shape and form out of nothing and then use YANG to give LIFE to that Imagined shape and form as well as requiring the power of the Uchiha/YIN and Senju/Yang. Not just Uchiha/YIN like the Uchiha's version.

Although, using senju/Yang with the Uchiha's Izanagi can increase the time the user can allow reality to stay an illusion, but is not required at all. Only the sage's Izanagi is required both Uchiha and senju Yin/Yang powers.

NOTE: The Nine tailed beast are such a creation using Izanagi, created from the chakra of the tentails.


Influence

Like the various techniques used with the Sharingan, this technique is named after a Shintō god. In this case, it is Izanagi, who, together with his sister and wife Izanami, created the islands and other deities of Japan.

One of the most famous stories about Izanagi tells the tale of how he goes into Yomi, the Japanese underworld, to retrieve Izanami after she died giving birth to the Shinto fire god Kagutsuchi. In Yomi, he manages to get Izanami and they both try to leave. However Izanagi was not supposed to look at her before they escape. Right before they reach the exit, Izanagi looks back and sees her in a decayed form. Frightened, Izanagi flees from Yomi and blocks the cave. Izanami curses Izanagi saying that she will kill 1000 people per day. In response, Izanagi says that 1500 people will be born each day.

After his failed attempt to get Izanami, he washes himself in a stream. As he cleans his left eye, Amaterasu is born, as he cleans his right eye, Tsukuyomi is born, and as he cleans his nose, Susanoo is born.

Trivia

  • In Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations, Danzō uses this as part of his ultimate technique, letting his Wood Release go out of control, creating a tree that crushes both himself and the opponent, and activating Izanagi at the last moment to escape unharmed.
  • In the past, Uchiha clan members used this technique during an important battle that they had to win at all costs. However, they soon started to abuse the abilities granted by this technique and as such Izanami was created as a way to punish the abusers of Izanagi.[2]
