Also Called

  • Genjutsu (Naruto)
  • Hallucikinesis
  • Hallucinogen
  • Illusion Casting/Creation
  • Illusions
  • Mirage Generation
  • Vision Manipulation
  • Visual Projection


User can create, shape and manipulate illusions, causing targets to see, hear, touch, smell and/or taste things which do not actually exist or cause them to perceive things differently from what they truly are. Some users can create complex and detailed worlds, others may be able to only alter the way they or the target are perceived.




  • Hallucination Solidification - the ability to solidify any/all illusions or hallucinations.
  • Illusion Eye - the ability to project illusions via eyes.
  • Mental Hallucination - the ability to create high level mental hallucinations.
  • Mirage Inducing is a version of Illusion (a mix of Summoning or limited Reality Warping and Illusion) in which the user can generate illusions which last, and are entirely real, as long as the targets do not know that they are illusions. One with this ability could cause any type of illusion they desire, but the second that someone calls out “It’s not real!”, shakes subjects out of their deluded state or the subjects see the illusionist working his power, then the illusions will wear off, entirely (or until the user can go unnoticed to use his ability again).
  • Psychosomatic Illusion - the ability to create illusions that are so realistic and powerful they can cause physical effects on the target.
  • Selective Illusions - the ability to induce illusions onto specific targets without affecting the others.
  • Self Perception - the ability to alter their own perception of reality.



  • Some users are limited to creating illusions that affect only certain senses, sight being the most common as a result people with Enhanced Senses might be able to see through it.
  • Some users may have to limit the amount of mental powers to control the illusion.
  • Some targets may be immune, mainly those who either have this ability as well or other mental ability.
  • User may be unable to create accurate illusions, such as making things that don't exist or situations that would never happen in a million years. One common mistake is misplacing a feature on a person, or forgetting to add shadows to their forms.
  • Illusion Awareness
  • User of Psychic Shield are either immune or highly resistant.
  • People with Danger Sense may be able to distinguish a fake illusion by telling which one is really a threat.
