The Infinite Tsukuyomi is a technique which is the key to the Eye of the Moon Plan.


Ten-Tails Rinne Sharingan

The Infinite Tsukuyomi being cast from the Ten-Tails.

The user creates an empty dimension under their control, which can then be filled with the contents of their desire, using the power of the Ten-Tails to do so. While physically tethered and connected to the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path, Madara was able to cast a similar genjutsu, albeit on a smaller scale, using only a standard Sharingan. After doing so, Madara could manipulate the otherwise blank and white world to create anything he wanted, no matter how detailed.

To trap every living being in the world within this genjutsu, however, Kaguya's Rinne Sharingan must be reflected off of the moon's surface. In order to do this, with the exception of Kaguya who ate the Shinju's chakra fruit, one must first become the Ten-Tails' jinchūriki. The genjutsu can be cast using the eye that blooms at the top of the Ten-Tails' tree form or the third eye which opens on the jinchūriki's forehead.

Eye of the Moon Plan

The victims are tethered using the life force of the Shinju.

Kaguya combined her powers of the Rinne Sharingan and Byakugan to enslave the populace. This technique can also be reflected off the moon, upon the technique's activation, the light from the moon's eye illuminates the entire planet, turning it bright as day and making it impossible to escape. All living things are bathed in its penetrating light and immediately placed under the genjutsu. This causes a reflection of the Rinnegan to appear in their eyes as they are rendered immobile, though their cognitive abilities remain unimpaired. The user can then use the God: Nativity of a World of Trees technique to ensnare the targets, assimilating their life force with that of the Shinju. Once this is done, the person is locked in a permanent genjutsu, in which they experience a dream world based on their individual desires, yet will live forever due to the tree's power, during which the victims are siphoned of their chakra. Once complete, those tethered to the Shinju will become drained of everything they once were and reduced to a shell of their former selves, ultimately becoming White Zetsu — ideal soldiers for Kaguya.[2]



Despite the seemingly inescapable nature of this technique, the Infinite Tsukuyomi can be countered through specific means:

  • The user's Rinne Sharingan reflects off of the moon for a limited period of time after the technique has been activated. Those who avoid this light will not be trapped within the genjutsu. Using his Rinnegan, Sasuke Uchiha was able to shield himself and his team by covering them with his Susanoo until the light disappeared.[3]
  • Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki stated that a person with the chakra of the nine tailed beasts and a Rinnegan user must form the rat hand seal together to cancel the technique.[4] Sasuke later claimed he would be able to cancel the technique alone using the tailed beasts under his control.[5] Upon the technique's cancellation, the roots used to bind the victims wither, as do all remaining White Zetsu.[6]


Certain individuals are unaffected by the Infinite Tsukuyomi, despite being exposed to its light:

Known Dreams

After being trapped in this illusion, several characters' dreams were shown:

Non-Canon Variants

Limited Tsukuyomi

In Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie, Obito casts a trial version of the Infinite Tsukuyomi, the "Limited Tsukuyomi" (限定月読, Gentei Tsukuyomi, Literally meaning: Limited Moon Reader), on Naruto and Sakura, which provides the alternate reality setting of the movie. Instead of casting it off of the moon, he instead used a crystal ball to serve as a medium to cast and host the alternate world.


  • "Mugen" (夢幻) can also be translated as "dreams, fantasy, visions", which fits the nature of this technique.
  • In Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie, when Obito uses the Limited Tsukuyomi and the reflected eye of the Ten-Tails appears, it has seven tomoe, representing the number of tailed beasts that Akatsuki had captured at that time.
  • Believing that this genjutsu was cast using a Rinnegan, Sasuke hypothesised that it could be cancelled by the Rinnegan.[8] He was later proven to be partly correct.
