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.

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:

Kakashi Using Genjutsu


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?

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.


Kakashi also uses genjustu during his fight with Obito when he entered the Kamui dimension. Afterward, Kakashi tells Obito enough with the genjustu.


And Although not much successful, during the second bell test in ship, Kakashi uses genjustu on Naruto and Sakura at the same time.
