Hey guys! Hope you are doing well. I’m back here at TheAnimeScrolls with yet another jutsu comparison. In this post, I’ll be comparing two of the strongest ever genjutsu, Tsukuyomi and Kotoamatsukami. I will be briefly giving you the insights about the two then we’ll decide which one is stronger.
Let’s begin this post regarding Tsukuyomi vs Kotoamatsukami
First of all, let us examine Tsukuyomi. Tsukuyomi is a genjutsu ability that Itachi Uchiha could use via one of his Mangekyou Sharingan.
Itachi Uchiha awakened his Mangekyou Sharingan ability when he saw his best friend Shisui Uchiha committing suicide. Itachi Uchiha thus got two Mangekyou Sharingan abilities one being Tsukuyomi and other being Amaterasu. In this post, we’ll just be talking about his Tsukuyomi. We first saw Itachi Uchiha using this genjutsu on Kakashi Hatake.
When an opponent is caught in this genjutsu, Itachi Uchiha can completely control him. Itachi Uchiha is able to even place his opponents in an alternate reality and torture them as he pleases.
We saw that when Kakashi Hatake was put under this genjutsu it seemed like he was being tortured for aged but in reality, he was under the genjutsu for mere minutes.
Later, it took several weeks for Kakashi Hatake to recover from its effects. It takes an opponent completely out of a battle as he needs weeks to recover.
Also, Tsukuyomi is the only genjutsu that can even kill people. Now, let us talk about Kotoamatsukami. It is the Mangekyou Sharingan ability of Shisui Uchiha. It is also one of the strongest genjutsu abilities around. It allows the user to manipulate the thoughts of the target without knowing that they are being manipulated.
It can simply change one’s memories and plant new ones. In my opinion, what Kotoamatsukami really does is that it alters the way brain signals are being sent throughout the body and with the help of chakra disrupts these signals and alters them as the user wishes to.
Thus, this causes the target to think that they are under no sort of genjutsu, and they are acting according to their own will which isn’t the case.
So, as we know now about what these amazing genjutsu abilities can do. Let us discuss which one is the strongest. Also, keep in mind that we are comparing Shisui’s Kotoamatsukami not when Danzo or Itachi used it.
Thus, he can use it as many times he wishes to. First of all, let us see which one is more helpful in a fight. If one is fighting more than one opponent he can still use genjutsu only one at a time. Thus, using Tsukuyomi he can get rid of just one of his opponents but the others can still attack him.
On the other hand if one has Kotoamatsukami he could easily turn his opponents against one another with Kotoamatsukami. So, against multiple opponents Kotoamatsukami will be more useful. Now, which among the two, in my opinion, is more powerful?
I do think that Kotoamatsukami is more powerful because it gives the user control of the adversary instead of just defeating opponents.
With the help of Kotoamatsukami wars can be avoided. It is way harder to counter than Tsukuyomi because the target doesn’t even resist it and no one had any idea whether the target is under genjutsu or not.
Thus, if you ask me which among the two I would prefer, even though it’s a hard choice to make as both of these two genjutsu are overpowered and ultra powerful. But I would still prefer Kotoamatsukami because of its more advantageous nature.
Kotoamatsukami’s way of manipulating humans is so subtle and perfect. While with Tsukuyomi one can just keep torturing the target but Kotoamatsukami does things much easily and gets the job done without any hassle.
As I said it could save countless lives by simply avoiding wars while as Tsukuyomi has no such advantage as it is just a torturing genjutsu. Thus, I think Kotoamatsukami is stronger of the two.
That is it from today’s post on Tsukuyomi vs Kotoamatsukami and one of the two is the strongest and the more useful genjutsu ability in the battle. I do hope that I was able to put my point across to you all.
