Used on Mifune

It has yet to be confirmed that Danzo was using this on Mifune. Ao never said that Danzo was, All he did was reveal Shisui's power and that Danzo could be using it. --Rikudou Geass (talk) 13:52, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

Didn't Kakashi also use a mind control jutsu on Zabuza during the Land of the Waves arc when they fought the first time?-- (talk) 15:00, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Kakashi used the basic hypnotic abilities of the Sharingan. Nothing on the level this technique is supposed to be. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 20:26, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

I'd also like to get this addressed. In the convo regarding Shisui, Ao and Itachi seem to reference Shisui's ability as a trait of his actual eye power and the Genjutsu that he uses with them, not just Koto Amatsukami in particular, which is a specific Genjutsu that's related to Shisui's Mangekyou Sharingan. Do we know for certain if Danzou uses Koto Amatsukami in particular as well since it's a product of Shisui's Mangekyou Sharingan or if it's only a related Genjutsu that Shisui's eye power also possesses? Basically, do we know for certain if Danzou uses the same "exact" technique or another Genjutsu derived from Shisui's eye power and not just the Mangekyou Sharingan? Do the translations hint to this as well? --Rising Ras (talk) 05:43, August 4, 2011 (UTC)


Danzo said he can't use this technique multiple times a day, shouldn't that be noted?

Unnamed → Shisui's

Should we move this to "Shisui's Mind-controlling Dōjutsu"? --NejiByakugan360 16:25, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

It's not only Shisui's now...--AlienGamer--Talk (contribs)-- 16:26, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

See I think the whole "Unnamed" thing looks tacky in the info boxes, just give a simple name for now until the real name is revealed! maybe like Hypnotic Eye Technique or something AMTNinja (talk) 16:30, 30 August 2009 (UTC)
Since eye contact isn't needed, that'll cause confusion....--AlienGamer--Talk (contribs)-- 16:31, 30 August 2009 (UTC)
yeah but the power itself does derive from the eye tho right? so it could work, but anyways Im just saying it needs a decent name for now AMTNinja (talk) 20:07, 30 August 2009 (UTC)
Danzō has been the only one so far to have used this technique. Sure, it was originally Shisui's, but we never saw him use it. Calling it "Shisui's Mind-controlling Dōjutsu" or something like that would unnecessarily confusing.
Also, just because "unnamed" looks 'tacky' doesn't mean we should make things up. It is unnamed, full stop. Saying anything else would be giving false information. Although "unknown" would probably be better in the name box. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 20:20, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

Im not saying we make up a whole new name for it like with kanji and all dat, but just for the infobox sake, we give it a name, and the article can say unnamed and such. I mean we DO want to make the site informational and good looking right! ;D AMTNinja (talk) 20:40, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

I don't mind the infobox saying "unnamed" or "unknown". In fact, I mind it less than the infobox giving a name even though we don't have an official name. That's just misinforming people. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 22:12, 30 August 2009 (UTC)
I think unknown's better. Also why didn't we make a page for the technique sasuke used on the samurai? Cooltamerboy (talk) 10:11, 31 August 2009 (UTC).
The technique Sasuke used on the samurai? What technique are you talking about? He only used his Kusanagi Sword: Chidori Katana as far as I remember. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 12:01, 31 August 2009 (UTC)
Oh sorry because i got information from leafninja saying that sasuke used an unknown technique? Cooltamerboy (talk) 12:09, 31 August 2009 (UTC).
He doesn't use any unknown techniques, unless you're talking about that aura of hatred that appears behind him. However, that is as much a technique as the demonic aura that appeared behind Zabuza when he attacked Gatō's thugs, or the Sharingan "demons". --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 13:49, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

Does Sasuke have it maybe?

Sasuke might have it.Remember when he got inside Naruto's head and stopped the Nine-Tailed fox from giving him any power?Maybe he was using the mind-control thing. (talk) 20:34, September 24, 2009 (UTC)

He wasn't controling any1. He used his Sharingan to see inside Naruto, and thus appeared in his subconsciencenses (god know how). Plus doesn't sum1 say "Unique to Shinsui"?..--AlienGamer--Talk (contribs)-- 20:36, September 24, 2009 (UTC)

kotoamatsukami is the ablility that was used by only Shisui-san through his mangekyou but since the eye has now been embedded in into the crow and the crow into naruto hence it now grants naruto the ability to cast kototamatsukami; but it can only be used by one who has Shisui-san's mangekyou and since Sasuke-san doesn't have that he can't use kotoamatsukami.--WashingAwaySins (talk) 15:29, August 6, 2011 (UTC)

It does not grant Naruto the ability to do fart. Itachi simply put it in Naruto because he was most likely to see Sasuke again and his drive to save Sasuke or something like that. Naruto serves as nothing more that an apartment complex and the crow's just another tenant.--Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 15:36, August 6, 2011 (UTC)

@cerez365: i didn't mean to give the impression that naruto can use the sharingan willingly but i meant for it to be used by naruto's crow (it's naruto's since it now is in naruto) as a response/counterattack against Itachi-san's sharingan.--WashingAwaySins (talk) 15:58, August 6, 2011 (UTC)

And I meant to give the impression that Naruto plays absolutely no part in what Itachi's crow does except to provide it with room & board.--Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 16:42, August 6, 2011 (UTC)

is it ninjutsu or genjutsu? -- (talk) 17:37, January 21, 2010 (UTC)

I think it's Genjutsu.


I think Shisui's tech is called Doryoku.

here's my proof.

I tried to translate it and it means "great effort"

"Dōryoku" means something to the effect of "eye power". It's synonymous with dōjutsu and is not the technique's name. ~SnapperTo 21:09, February 26, 2010 (UTC)

Madara used this on yondaime mizukage, yagura right? Call me Red Dead Itachi.

Madara used something on Yagura, but we never learned what it was. The Fifth Mizukage only thought this was a similar technique, but it's not necessarily the same. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 02:41, December 18, 2010 (UTC)
But think about it, UNLIKE normal manipulation techs, yagura's eyes did not become sharingan. same with mifune. whereas with the kyuubi his eyes became the sharingan

Not all people under genjutsu show the caster's eyes, example Empheral used on Naruto by Itachi. Madara used a similar tech but was never named or revealed exactly what it was. Saying it was this is merely speculation. After all Itachi used a genjutsu to control someone as well in Pt. 1 when he tried to separate Naruto and Jiraiya. Not all controlling genjutsu are Shisui's tech, besides the fact Madara was mad at Danzo destroying Shisui's eye and not using it on the Kage to get the other tailed beasts just shows you it isn't the dojutsu, besides it was unique to Shisui and unless you had one of his eyes(one is destroyed) this particular doujutsu is as good as lost.Umishiru (talk) 03:14, December 18, 2010 (UTC)

only beast get the eyes as the caster when under sharingan's influence, no human gets the impression of the eyes. for example, the beast got the impression of the sharingan like the time when nine-tails was controlled by madara and like the time when while fighting diadera sasuke's snake got the impression of the sharingan; but no human ever gets the impression--WashingAwaySins (talk) 15:34, August 6, 2011 (UTC)

Dōjutsu no Shisui

I have reviewed the spoiler of chapter 459, and translation of the Naruto Forum user stream, he mentions that is Dōjutsu no Shisui, and then talks about the technique, I ask that you review the spoiler or chapter to see if it is something real name ... If my mistake sorry. —This unsigned comment was made by LosErmanos (talkcontribs) .

Itachi usage?

In chapter 540, we see Shikaku and Ao discussing Itachi's genjutsu powers. One of them sounds oddly similar to this technique. Similarities include;

  • Not needing eye contact to initiate
  • Takes control of individuals and influence their actions
  • And is a genjutsu originating from the Sharingan

With these similarities in mind, is it possible that these two techniques could be one in the same, or could we at least note these odd similarities in the article until more info comes out? --- Ten Tailed Fox 23:53, May 25, 2011 (UTC)

  • People are assuming he needs no eye contact
  • Doesn't mean it's the same as Shisui's abilities like that are normally unique to each Sharingan
  • As most Uchiha cast genjutsu.
  • Anything's possible though improbable.--Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 23:55, May 25, 2011 (UTC)
The reason most people assume he needs no eye contact is because Ao said he can cast the genjutsu from beyond the range of the sensor ninja, which we've seen to be posted at the edge of each camp. Also, its not an assumption to think that Itachi can preform such a feat. We know he can cast genjutsu just by pointing, so it isn't too much of a stretch to say he can do so by other means too. Lastly, it cannot be regular Uchiha genjutsu. Only Itachi and Shisui have been commented on having particularly strong genjutsu techniques, and we know for a fact that Sasuke's genjutsu are rather poor, according to both Danzō and Madara. --- Ten Tailed Fox 00:05, May 26, 2011 (UTC)
He didn't say he could cast the genjutsu from that range or take control of someone from that range. Mangastream's translator added that word. Shisui's genjutsu in any case is different from anything so far. It can be more liked to a "push" [From the movie of the same name] or "Inception" [From the movie of the same name]. His genjutsu seems to change the person rather than manipulate them constantly.
Randy Michael (talk) 00:16, August 4, 2011 (UTC)

remember the time when naruto and all went to save gaara from akatsuki and went up against Itachi-san? that time naruto was caught in Itachi-san's genjutsu when he didn't even look in his eyes, itachi-san later informed him that he can cast genjutsu by mere flick of a finger. maybe Ao was referring to that time?--WashingAwaySins (talk) 15:43, August 6, 2011 (UTC)

As far as we know, Ao never met Itachi, Shisui was never said to be capable of casting genjutsu by pointing at people. For all we know, we doesn't even have to look at the eyes or even interact with the person, just looking at them should suffice. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 17:50, August 6, 2011 (UTC)

The Final Fight

It can only be reactivate in a decade meaning Naruto probably won't fight Sasuke for the next ten yrs in the timeline.--Zero62422002 (talk) 19:24, August 3, 2011 (UTC)

Also, how would a crow know how to activate a Mangekyou Sharingan? Seelentau 愛 19:44, August 3, 2011 (UTC)
No, Naruto will use it. As far as I know, it's not yet deactivated, so Naruto can use it. --Ilnarutoanime 19:52, August 3, 2011 (UTC)
The technique cannot be "deactivated" or lost per se. Naruto has no control of the crow so it would happen the same way it just did, Sasuke activates the Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan→ crow recognises Itachi's Mangekyō Sharingan→ crow comes out and does his stuff.--Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 20:04, August 3, 2011 (UTC)

The crow's Sharingan is just a normal Sharingan now. When the Jutsu was active, it was a Mangekyou Sharingan. So for the Jutsu to activate again, the crow would have to activate it's Mangekyou Sharingan again and I seriously doubt that it is capable of doing so. Also, the crow isn't inside Naruto anymore, plus Itachi's way of talking about the Jutsu makes it very clear that the Jutsu can't be used another time (at least in my opinion). Seelentau 愛 21:06, August 3, 2011 (UTC)

til now we know that Shisui's mangekyou sharingan has been used against Itachi-san and according to Itachi-san Shisui-san's mangekyou sharingan needs a decade to be available for use again. so according to the information we have uptill now the sharingan can not be used again until a decade unless there are other ways to reduce the time limit other than just using Hashirama senju's body cells. so it all states that naruto would not be able to use it against sasuke-san (well according to the available information we have uptil now).--WashingAwaySins (talk) 15:51, August 6, 2011 (UTC)

You said nothing we don't know already. And considering the Senju/Uzumaki distant relationship, I wouldn't be surprised if Uzumaki chakra, or even the Nine-Tails' yang chakra was enough to activate it. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 17:50, August 6, 2011 (UTC)

The Most Powerful Genjutsu is...

I Know this is not the best place to discuss this.... but, What Genjutsu is the most Powerful? ¿Izanagi or Kotoamatsukami? Because in the new chapter Itachi said That Shisui created the most Powerful Genjutsu. --thedasilva1 (talk) 05:52, 3 August 2011 (UTC)

From the way Itachi says it in the raw, it seems to me that Kotoamatsukami is the strongest genjutsu of Shisui's MAngekyō Sharingan. —ShounenSuki (talk | contribs | translations) 22:48, August 3, 2011 (UTC)

so its confirmed Kotoamatsukami is not apart of itachis power?

Even Though he said it was and it said itachi"s jutsu changes the course battle or somthing to that effect in the opening page of chapter 550....

So its not his then its confirmed by you guys?Jodyjoe0 (talk) 06:15, August 4, 2011 (UTC)


can naruto use the crow in the fight with Sasuke? I don't understand. Does the ten years rule apply? -- (talk) 14:26, August 4, 2011 (UTC)

For me, I think he can, because it's not yet deactivated. --Ilnarutoanime 14:28, August 4, 2011 (UTC)
Actually it is deactivated - crow's sharingan is normal on page 9, plus Itachi points out that "mangekyo has faded away" -- (talk) 18:13, August 4, 2011 (UTC)
I think they're talking about the technique's effect, not the eye's ability to cast the technique. By "they", I mean the two people who posted above you, not the characters. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 18:17, August 4, 2011 (UTC)

I don't think that the current image does a good job illustrating the technique. I think that an image of the crow at the moment it used the technique would be better suited. I don't think we should use the anime image of Danzō using it as well, since that was from a Byakugan perspective. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 17:08, August 4, 2011 (UTC)

I don't think it really shows anything, but it isn't really one of those techniques that you can depict properly. Also, wouldn't the crow bit just be a black background with Shisui's eye?-

-Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 20:31, August 5, 2011 (UTC)

Itachi as a user

hmm i think it's need to be added that itachi used kotoamatsukami1 why? ill explain

  1. shisui is dead, he can't use it anymore
  2. itachi had his eye
  3. he supplemented the eye so that it would cast a "protect konoha" genjutsu
  4. he implanted it into anruto

basicly what im trying to say is that it is not an itachis' tech by any means but as he ahd acces to the eye he used it. not hsi crow-but he-itachi by setting everything up as it went. to furthemore clear what i mean is- danzou ahd shisui's eye and he sued kotoamatsukami -so danzou is a user of it, itachi ahd the eye n he sset thing s up like they went(although it was ment for sasueks ems) but still itachi "used" it. so no its not his tech but via shisuis help and his own geniuseness he used it;D i hope that made it clear. i think it should be added in the "jutsu users" bar itachi uchiha.that'd only make sense.

is kyuubi narutos power? is 8tails KB power? is shisuis eye danzous power? is samehada KB power? is katsuya tsunades power?

then wthis was itachis power/ technique for that moment. it only makes sense dont you think.! a dead person cant activate his MS and use genjutsu-itachi set that up. ----—This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) .

You understand though, that at no point has Itachi used Kotoamatsuki yes?
  • He got Shisui's eyes→ still hasn't used them
  • Implanted into the crow→ still hasn't used it
  • Crow fulfils its intended purpose but on the wrong eye→ still hasn't used it.

Saying he used it, is kinda saying Orochimaru uses Wood Release because of what he did to Yamato.--Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 12:14, August 5, 2011 (UTC)

then by your logic who activated the kotoamatsukami the bird? when a crow's will start casting highest level genjutsus ill eat my left arm;DD

itachi had the eye and he rigged it to be used on his sight . so if yo'll make a bomb with tier n itll set off sometime l8er you wont be responsible for its activation? dont be hating or anything im just pointing what is obvious-itachi made the kotoamatsukami activate which makes him a user of it if it only was once. im not trying to hype itachi or anything but he was the one who used it by riiging it/making it a timebomb. shisuii wasnt the one who used it. its like kakashi has obitos eye so kakashi isnt using MS but obito? aperantly ir is kakashis jutsu.

ehh i hope i made myself clear;)

had shisuis eye-couldnt use it due to 10year cooldown;D

>implanted it in crow-hasnt used it !>:made it cast genjutsu protect konoha when countering itachis MS by using komotoamatsukami-setting it off-> used it.(even if it was in the wrong place/wrong time)--—This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) .

Kotoamatsukami was activated based on the conditions Itachi had set. No one "activated" it. In the same manner if it was used on Sasuke, we wouldn't be having this discussion.--Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 20:19, August 5, 2011 (UTC)

i agree with cerez365. the jutsu was not perticularly activated by anyone. itachi-san did not activate it since he no longer weilds it, he just set up the conditions that were required for it to be activated on it's own. the crow did not activate it either since it doesn't have conscious or intelligence, it is just a body that was required for the eye to be embedded in. the jutsu's activation was just a response of coming up against Itachi-san's mangekyou sharingan.--WashingAwaySins (talk) 16:50, August 6, 2011 (UTC)

but he set it to activate in conditions when it sees his sharingan. so he amde it activate-thus using it! and yet again no it's not his tech. in 550 killer B even asks why didnt "you"-refering to iatchi as user of it . use it on sasuke faster-in which he replies that it has a 10 year cooldown.even though it was a failed plan it still was activated so itachi should be added as an suer BUT noted via shisuis eye and crow. it is only senseble n reasonable. not trying to hype/bash anyone.—This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) .

He set up conditions for it to activate through unknown means that does not mean he used it. If it had been used on Sasuke as intended we wouldn't be having this discussion.--Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 13:33, August 6, 2011 (UTC)

ok i get it, haters gonna hate. its like this if itachi didn't use koto amatsukami then:

  1. tailed beasts aint jinchuriki power?!
  2. hashiramas DNa isnt madaras power?!
  3. samehada isnt KB power?!
  4. obitos sharingan isn't kakashis power?!
  5. nagatos rinnegan which mdara implanted in himslef aint his power.?!
  6. orochimarus dna isnt kabutos power?
  7. great ninja treasures ain't kinkaku and ginkaku power?!

get it where this leads???????????????

its been shown NUMEROUS times that it was iatchis power in manga:

  1. when itachi gave the crow to naruto " i've given you some of my power"
  2. "ITACHIS" jutsu changes course of battle i think kishi is giving us a hint no?!(550 1st panel)
  3. the crow is yours inst it?(nagato to itachi)
  4. "i layered a genjutsu on top of the enemy's jutsu"(itachi ch.550)

itachi set it up so koto amatsukami would be activated when it sees his sharingan and ITACHI made it cast a genjutsu protect konoha. thus he used it. it was a part of his aresnal as a gift from shisui. it makes him an user of it. it would be used anyways on sasuke and the misshapened accident shows no inferiority to it. and tell me that these aint fact i worte. it is only logical, but yeah haters gonna hate. it should by added like this:

Using caps lock and a lot of question marks and exclamation signs will get you nowhere friend. Read the numerous discussions that have been going on before you posted. The only thing Itachi used was whatever he did to implant the message into the eye. He did not/has not used the eye in any other way. If the eye were in his body or possession like all those other things you listed up there and he actually wielded it then it'd be "his power".--Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 12:31, August 7, 2011 (UTC)

there are numerous posts above which imply nothing. yet kishis implies himself by writing it that it's iatchis power-ok i dont even care n i think it shouldn't be. but itachi should be added as user of it. so by all means explain how can a dead eye cast koto amatsukami by itself? itachi set it all up so it would activate on his MS sight. so by setting the thing up doesnt make him an user of it? like transcript amaterasu seal which he implanted into sasuke-the hell its stated as his jutsu? its thesame thing. kinjutsu thats how he activated it if you ask me.

ive only provided facts and sensible- se i mean sensible-logical explanation why itachi should be added as an user of it. and no its not his tech its shiuis but as he ahd his eye he gained acces to that genjutsu get where it leads-same like danzou did the only difference is that danzou ahd it in his eye socket whiule using it but itachi made it like transcript amaterasu seal and put it in crows eye via timer9timer being the waiting period to se his Ms ) —This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) .

Itachi used a fūinjutsu to implant a technique in Sasuke's eye. Back when those chapters came out, I was beginning to read the series, but I don't think Sasuke was considered a user of Amaterasu until he used it himself against B, after he awaking his on Mangekyō Sharigan. For all we know, all Itachi did was a "Transcription Seal: Kotoamatsukami". Same thing as the other, setting up an effect upon a specific trigger, in another's eye. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 20:13, August 7, 2011 (UTC)

well the it'd be only logical to add it as transcript seal koto amatsukami. if you put it that way. about sasuke i meant that whilst it was his eye casting the technique is itachis and itachi is an user of it(i think you misunderstod me) and thats why its the same via koto amatsukami in crow:)--—This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) .

Not the most powerful Genjutsu

I think the creator of the article kind of misinterpreted what Itachi said. Kotoamatsukami is not the most powerful genjutsu in general but only the most powerful that awakened in Shisuis Mangekyou. It is obvious that Izanagi is more powerful since it is able to turn the user invincible for a short period of time and the price you have to pay is much higher; you loose your sharingan. Also you can use Izanagi only once (per eye) which puts a limit to this jutsu while Kotoamatsukami can be used again and again, even if it takes a long time to reactivate. Senju DNA is required for both using Izanagi and using Kotoamatsukami more frequently. But I dont want to start a war about which technique is more powerful, we can only decide by the facts. And to me it seems that Itachi never called Kotoamatsukami the most powerful Genjutsu, only the most powerful that Shisui was capable of using. -- (talk)Timiursa

"Kotoamatsukami is the ultimate genjutsu granted by Shisui Uchiha's Mangekyō Sharingan." That is what is said, it's probably you who are misinterpreting what is there.--Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 22:02, August 7, 2011 (UTC)
And the term used for "ultimate/strongest" (最強, saikyō) doesn't have the exact same meaning as the English equivalent. Kotoamatsukami, Tsukuyomi, and Izanagi can all be called "saikyō" without contradiction, according to ShounenSuki. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 22:17, August 7, 2011 (UTC)

as far as sieries have shown koto amatsukami is the strongest genjutsu without the risk that of a izanagi. only thing that can be a level higher than koto amatsukami is mugen tsukoyomi imo. but i think they should be classiifed as stringest genjutsu- all 3 of them have some special requirements izanagi-permanent lose of eye/ mugen tsukoyomi -10 tails/ koto amatsukami 10 year recharge w/o hashirama cells but.—This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) .

in the mangastream translation i read it on itachi stated that shisui was the strongest genjutsu user in the uchiha clan, but it did not nessicarily state the koto amatsukami was the strongest. though the way they talked about it, it was ocular jutsu of the highest order. (talk) 14:55, August 8, 2011 (UTC)

Shisui was stated to be the "strongest genjutsu user" of the Uchiha. Itachi also said, from that same mangastream translation: "The ultimate genjutsu of Uchiha Shisui's Mangekyō Sharingan".--Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 15:02, August 8, 2011 (UTC)
It is very likely Itachi doesn't know Izanagi, in which case Kotoamatsukami would be the strongest genjutsu in his eyes... -- (talk) 11:58, August 10, 2011 (UTC)
That would be a baseless assumption.--Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 13:39, August 10, 2011 (UTC)

Mangekyou Sharingan?

I think mangekyou sharingan is not needed to use this technique. Why? Because Danzou used it. Danzou does not have mangekyou sharingan, but he was able to use this technique! Please, answer the question!--Gaara95 (talk) 15:47, September 11, 2011 (UTC)

Danzo had Shisui's MS, he was just not seen using it. Jacce | Talk | Contributions 15:49, September 11, 2011 (UTC)

He had Shinsu's sharingan, but he never activated its mangekyou form, right? You said that mangekyou activation is required to use this technique. Does it mean that Danzou can activate mangekyou?--Gaara95 (talk) 15:57, September 11, 2011 (UTC)

He could activate it, yes. It was just not seen. Jacce | Talk | Contributions 16:02, September 11, 2011 (UTC)


Shouldn't it be noted that it wasn't able to be detected by sensors? Fu wasn't able to sense it nor was C able to sense it. Ao wasn't able to sense it without his Byakugan. (talk) 09:44, December 13, 2011 (UTC)

Since when has genjutsu been able to be be sensed O.o?--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol 10:35, December 13, 2011 (UTC)
I think he meant how they are able to sense the chakra being disturbed. Joshbl56 10:40, December 13, 2011 (UTC)
That's Karin o.o --Cerez365Hyūga Symbol 10:48, December 13, 2011 (UTC)
Is it only an ability of hers? I thought all sensor had some degree of being able to tell chakra disturbance in someone since they detect others by chakra. Joshbl56 10:53, December 13, 2011 (UTC)
I've been trying to remember an instance where anyone but her has done that, but I can't seem to remember any. I know sensors have commented on chakra disappearing altogether but never disturbances in chakra. Inoichi even said he could track people via their chakra but it has to remain the same. At the same time I've been trying to figure out what's so special about the Mind's eye of the Kagura and I'm assuming this is one of those intricate abilities.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol 10:58, December 13, 2011 (UTC)
Well, her Minds Eye of Kagura sounds like the jutsu version of the Byakugan (Since it allows her to see chakra, tell disturbances, and has a huge radius). Joshbl56 11:06, December 13, 2011 (UTC)
Her technique allows her to detect chakra, not see it. What we see when she uses the technique is just a representation of the technique for us to know she's using it. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 12:33, December 13, 2011 (UTC)

Why Didn't/Couldn't Itachi Use Kotoamatsukami on Sasuke?

I believe this has been answered before, but I don't remember what the reason was. Does anyone have the answer for me? If so, thanks in advance. Diamonddeath (talk) 05:02, February 23, 2012 (UTC)

He said he couldn't because the dojutsu could only be used once in a decade. Meaning it had already been used before. He also said there were other things he wanted to do for Sasuke with his death.. —This unsigned comment was made by Deva 27 (talkcontribs) .

Was it revealed what it had been used for previously? Diamonddeath (talk) 05:21, February 23, 2012 (UTC)

No. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 05:29, February 23, 2012 (UTC)

infobox wrong

It won't let me edit it =( In the info box on the right side of the article, in the kanji section, it should be 別天津神, not 別天神

ㄌㄍㄓㄕ (talk) 04:36, August 10, 2012 (UTC)

It is correct. Check the raws for either chapter Kotoamatsukami is mentioned by its name. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 15:18, August 10, 2012 (UTC)


One the first line in the trivia section, it says Danzo never removed the bandages that covered Shisui's Sharingan, but he did. I have a pic of it if you would like proof. Zelwolf (talk) 03:09, November 7, 2012 (UTC)Zelwolf

He never removed them to use Kotoamatsukami. That is the point. The only time he ever removed his bandages was to fight those ninja on his way to the Land of Iron, but it has no bearing on this ability, thus the trivia. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 08:14, November 7, 2012 (UTC)

Crow User

I think the Crow should remain listed as a user. It may not have had any control over when or how it would use it but it still used it. Arrancar79 (talk) 22:26, February 4, 2013 (UTC)

I agree. The crow still used the jutsu. Zelwolf (talk) 14:54, February 5, 2013 (UTC)Zelwolf
You yourself said no control over when or even how. How could it have used it? The only thing the crow did was react to its master's dōjutsu/presence and fly out. If anything Itachi would have more reason to be listed as a user.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 15:06, February 5, 2013 (UTC)
No choice would have been a better way of putting that. My point is still that it used it. Arrancar79 (talk) 05:04, February 6, 2013 (UTC)


does anyone see ant differences between shisuis right eye and left because there usually is a difference--Shotcolla (talk) 22:18, April 23, 2013 (UTC)

No, there isn't any difference between Obito's right and left eyes either IMO. The difference stems from being used by different user with different skill and chakra--Elveonora (talk) 11:08, April 24, 2013 (UTC)

Checking Naruto chapter 587 page 8. Tq (talk) 09:52, May 17, 2013 (UTC)

There is nothing in that chapter that shows different eyes, except for Itachi's left eye being blind. No pairs of eyes have ever shown different patters at all. They're always a matching pair.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 14:25, May 17, 2013 (UTC)
Not to mention the OP was asking about a difference between left eye Kotoamatsukami and right eye Kotoamatsukami, not visual one.--Elveonora (talk) 15:09, May 17, 2013 (UTC)
