A very strong genjutsu that allows the user to put an opponent under an illusion using only words and speech. While under the effects of the genjutsu, the target can be easily swayed of their will and self-assurance. The illusion cannot be easily broken, even when the person is under realisation that the genjutsu is in effect, but strong emotional connections, like love, can help in dispelling it.


  • While not named in the anime or the novel, the technique was given a proper name in Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Blazing.
  • Kankurō indirectly references this in the Gaara DLC for Ultimate Ninja Storm 4.
