When you have the Sharingan, you can perform a genjutsu on a person for example, every Uchiha can use this ability. But what about Kakashi? He is not an Uchiha but can he perform genjutsu? If yes, please list it down.

Note: I'm not referring to after the Fourth Shinobi World War, since we know that after the war, Kakashi doesn't have the Sharingan.

  • I'm confused. Are you asking if he used genjutsu before he obtained the Sharingan, or are you asking if he used genjustu after he lost it? The way that this is worded is a bit confusing to me. – Makoto Aug 19 '19 at 2:22

    You don’t need a sharingan to use genjustu – Joe W Aug 19 '19 at 22:09

First of all you don't need to be an Uchiha to use genjutsu, look at Kurenai she is a genjutsu expert and not an Uchiha. But for your question, Kakashi uses 3 times genjutsu in the series.

  1. Against Sakura like @StackUpPhysics said. (During the Bell Test for Team 10 he tricked Sakura by putting her in a Genjutsu.)
  2. Against Zabuza (At 0:33 Minutes).
  3. Against 2 Anbu Ninjas (At 2:41 Minutes)

Another Instance of Kakashi Using Genjutsu in the Manga:

    Well written answer. Can you share when did he use it against Zabuza I checked but there was no reference to this. Also which 2 ANBU members are you referring to, it would be great if you added the episodes or the incidents involved – user47236 Aug 20 '19 at 14:34
  • i dont know the episodes but i can include youtube links – xmastertje Aug 21 '19 at 10:27

I think you want instances of Kakashi using his Genjutsu, here is one-

During the Bell Test for Team 10 he tricked Sakura by putting her in a Genjutsu

  • Other than that, is there more? – kit Aug 19 '19 at 16:27
  • @kit there were certainly more I can't seem to recall them and the Wikia doesn't list very many either – user47236 Aug 19 '19 at 16:29

Can Kakashi perform genjutsu? Yes. According to the wiki,

With the Sharingan, Kakashi can accurately reproduce any movement he sees (his own physical skill permitting), take in a heightened amount of visual information, and perform the Sharingan's broad category of genjutsu.
