Genjutsu

Where was it ever said in the manga or databooks that Byakugan could see through genjutsu? Yahyanime (talk) 11:31, May 9, 2014 (UTC)

When Obito fought the Eight Man Squad, Hinata said Obito's phasing wasn't genjutsu. Ao recognised that Yagura was under genjutsu as well, which is why he was suspicious during the Five Kage Summit. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 15:11, May 9, 2014 (UTC)

Extending Genjutsu

So far I've heard several people reference this wiki page as though it was proof that using byakugan and sharingan together could extend the visual genjutsu. So, I checked the reference (page 9 of chapter 671) as well as all other points in the manga where Kaguya shows up/sharingan genjutsu is used. There were several translations for the reference shown, but in the end it simply states that she had both doujutsu and used both their powers to devastate people. There is no note of using the byakugan to apply the sharingan genjutsu whatsoever. There is no instance within the manga where she does so without it being stated, either.

The reference in question states "(It won't let me put the japanese here because it says it's profanity) " which means "Mother had not only the byakugan's power, but also the sharingan's." This is followed by "Douryoku wo tsukai sono jutsu wo tami he to muketa koto mo aru seisan na jutsu de atta" which means "Using her eye's powers she turned a nation of people with the technique. It was a terrible technique."


Now, it was a popular fan theory beforehand that Kaguya used the byakugan to apply the mugentsukiyomi so when this was stated there were probably people who took this theory for fact. But nowhere does it state she applied the technique with byakugan nor are there any other points in the manga where she uses byakugan to apply a sharingan genjutsu. Until that happens, stating this on the wiki is just speculation and should be removed. Jake3104 (talk) 21:34, July 28, 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, it's a popular assumption about how she managed to cast it on larger scale--Elveonora (talk) 21:43, July 28, 2014 (UTC)
I haven't heard anyone claim this. However, if I had to guess I would think that it hails from Hinata extending Ino's soul swapping range. Don't know how people would think that applies to Sharingan genjutsu, which requires the victim to see the caster's eyes.--CyberianGinseng 15:59, July 29, 2014 (UTC)
Is any of this mentioned in this, or any article on the site? --Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 16:05, July 29, 2014 (UTC)
It states on the Byakugan page that Byakugan can be used to extend the range of the sharingan genjutsu as shown by Kaguya. It references chapter 671, page 9. I'm trying to get it removed, but people keep putting it back.--Jake3104 (talk) 20:33, July 29, 2014 (UTC)
