Illusions is a technique used by Muramasa and his master, Kōga Kuchiki.


Muramasa and Kōga can distort their target's five senses, preventing them from perceiving things clearly. By looking into the target's soul, Muramasa can use the target's memories against them by creating a powerful illusion to distract and torment the target, such as when he recreated Yasutora Sado's hometown in Mexico in order to lure him into a false sense of security.[1] He can also use this ability to create clones of himself in combat in order to confuse his opponent. However, these illusions can be bypassed if the target's Zanpakutō spirit has experienced and been freed from Muramasa's mind control powers and can properly detect his Reiatsu,[2] or if the Shinigami lets their Zanpakutō spirit act as their eyes.[3] Additionally, they cannot affect a target if they are blocked by another force, such as Orihime's Santen Kesshun.[1] According to Kōga, these are more than simple illusions. However, a target can negate this technique by closing off their heart to Kōga before engaging in combat with him.[3]
