Illusion is the condition of being deceived by a false perception or belief, something that deceives by producing a false or misleading impression of reality.

Illusions are not every single misguidance, for example, if a character is something called ambigous gender (like Haku from Naruto), even though his appearance is misleading impression of reality, it still isn't an illusion.

In anime/manga world where almost everything can be interpretated as a misleading impression of reality, still exists illusions as a concept in which a certain character is manipulating other people senses in orther to achieve his goals.

I tried to find some pictures of those illusions, but it's kinda hard to track them all down, and especially illusions of those characters that I haven't actually watched yet.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

1. Ai Enma - (Ai can create large illusions, which she often does to frighten her victims before taking them to Hell. She can only use them on request from other people and she knows that if she would to use them on her own accord she will be the one sent to Hell)

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

2. Asura – (He presides over the attributes that drives men towards madness, which in his particular case is the possession of "Terror". The Madness he employs awakens the insanity within others. His Madness can even cause illusions and hallucinations.)

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

3. Ban Mido – (he can utilize the Evil Eye (Jagan), a power which allows him to make anyone he makes eye contact with to watch a one minute long illusion, however, it should only be used three times per day. Furthermore, while the illusion only lasts for one minute, should Ban will it, the one affected by the Jagan can be placed inside a time-warp zone via the illusion created by the technique, meaning that to them, one minute in real life could last up to several hours in the Jagan's influence.)

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

4. Carmilla – (She can use illusions to break her targets mind.)

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

5. Chrome Dokuro – (Even though at first she's mostly assisted by Mukuro, her own illusions gradually improves to the point only an expert can see through it, as stated by Mammon.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

9. Demon Eyes Kyo – (His sword style is The Sword of a Devilish Wind which was taught to him by Muramasa.

12. Fukasaku and Shima – (Shima and Fukasaku are capable of using a very powerful genjutsu called Demonic Illusion: Toad Confrontation Chant. This ability cancelled out Jiraiya's lack of aptitude for genjutsu, making their combination much stronger. However, this genjutsu takes time. Also, in order to use this technique, both Shima and Fukasaku must adjust their voices and harmonise with each other (something neither of them seems happy about doing).

There is one character from Joujuu Senjin!! Mushibugyou series. He's an insect man, a cricket and a ninja. I haven't created his page and the other Crucifix characters. I will create his page on Friday. I got behind in the wiki projects.

That's a lot of characters. Awesome work as always.

@takashichea:

I was actually pretty surprised how many of them are there. If you can think of anyone else, please let me know, I'll be happy to update my list.

Right now, I'm working on a similar project.

Sorry for being late.

@takashichea:

There is one more character with that name who is using illusions. Saizo Kirigakure from Brave 10.

I wonder if they got their name because of someone from history.

@waybig1010101: I'm so sorry, I don't know how I missed your comment. Could you help me out a bit with Elsea de Lute Irma. Since I never watched "The World God Only Knows" I don't know what image would be the best to describe her illusions... from what I've read she have some kind of optical camouflage.

@Haiken: Regarding Rikuo and Nurarihyon, who is using illusion on that image? I didn't watch this show so I can't be sure. Not much information on them on the internet.

Also, is there a alias name for Mayoi-Ga. I can find him.

@taichokage: Yup, yup... he was already added... I think I got every KHR illusion character. Probably the reason I watched Reborn is because I wanted to confirm their abilities.

@bigz007:

This is Rikuo

This is Mayoi-Ga

This is Nurarihyon using Illusion (via bending light)

Post by taichokage (12,640 posts) See mini bio Level 20
Oh sorry. I could've sworn I didn't see him there because I checked before suggesting him (fail). Allow me to make it up by suggesting Rojuro Otorobashi and Brook. Both being sound illusionists like Tayuya.

@Haiken: I've added them. Thanks.

@taichokage: Thanks for reminding me of them. I can't find a good image of Brooks illusion. I remember him using it only once (on Fishman Island).
