Genjutsu is one of the three types of Jutsu used, along with Ninjutsu and Taijutsu. However, unlike Ninjutsu and Taijutsu, Genjutsu targets the senses of a person. A user of Genjutsu can put people under strong illusions, that appear to be real but aren’t. Usually, Genjutsu cannot actually kill a person. Itachi Uchiha was the only one who had such power with Genjutsu. But, even now, in Boruto, there are several powerful Genjutsu users alive. Today, I’ve made a list of the best Genjutsu users in Boruto. So, let’s get started —
7. Mirai Sarutobi
Mirai Sarutobi is a Kunoichi of Konohagakure, and the daughter of Kurenai Yuhi. She’s a powerful Chūnin, who is skilled enough to be named the bodyguard of both the Sixth and the Seventh Hokage of Konohagakure. Mirai has inherited both her mother’s and her father’s skills. Kurenai herself was a powerful Genjutsu user during her time as a Ninja. Mirai has similar skills in Genjutsu, and she will only get better with time.
6. Kabuto Yakushi
Kabuto Yakushi is running an orphanage in Konohagakure right now. However, that in now way implies that he has lost his skills. In his time, Kabuto was a very skilled Genjutsu user. He could use it on a large number of people at once. Further, after absorbing various people’s powers, he was able to use sound based Genjutsu, which he got from Tayuya.
Chino is a member of the Chinoike Clan, and she’s working for Kirigakure right now. She is also a very skilled Genjutsu user. Her clan was known to rival even the Uchiha when it comes to Genjutsu skills, but they’re not quite the same. However, credit to her, she even caught Sasuke Uchiha in a Genjutsu off guard. Her power with Genjutsu should not be underestimated, and she’s definitely one of these best Genjutsu users alive.
Orochimaru is one of the few shinobi who is skilled in all 3 Jutsu types. He has decent skill in Genjutsu as well. Even though he doesn’t use Genjutsu often, he can do it. Now, 15 after the war, I’m sure he has also improved his abilities even more, and increased his skills in each field. I have a feeling Orochimaru far stronger than he once was. He’s defined one to watch out for.
Kurotsuchi is the 4th Tsuchikage of Iwagakure. She’s one of the strongest Kunoichi in the world of Boruto. Kurotsuchi is skilled with all 3 Jutsu types, just like Orochimaru. She has great Ninjutsu and Taijutsu skills. According to the data books, she is also the best Genjutsu user among the Five Kage. So, even though we have not seen her use Genjutsu, she is supposed to be one of the best when it comes to Illusionary techniques.
2. Kaguya Otsutsuki
Kaguya Otsutsuki is the strongest being in the Naruto world. She’s still alive right now, because she’s Immortal, and cannot die. Hagoromo and Hamura were only able to seal her temporarily, and same was the case with Naruto and Sasuke Uchiha.
Kaguya Otsutsuki had access to the Rinne Sharingan, which gave her the ability to use the Infinite Tsukuyomi. You all probably know that it is the strongest Genjutsu in existence. So being able to use it automatically makes her the strongest Genjutsu user. However, since she isn’t around right now, and we’re not sure if she’ll return, she takes her place at No. 2.
1. Sasuke Uchiha
Sasuke Uchiha is easily one of the best Genjutsu users alive in Boruto. His skill with the Mangekyo Sharingan is beyond any comparison. Even back in Naruto, he was a great user of Genjutsu. Now, he’s only managed to improve his abilities. Sasuke’s Sharingan Genjutsu was great enough to trap Chino, who was a Genjutsu master herself.
More importantly, he can also use a stronger, Rinnegan Genjutsu as well. He used it against the Nine Tailed Beasts, and surprisingly, he was capable of putting all 9 of them under a Genjutsu with just one glance. Even Hagoromo Otsutsuki was surprised at this. In the shinobi world, Sasuke is definitely the best Genjutsu user.
