The point is that these are all rather obvious uses, and do remember that it's the mangaka's job to think about his or her manga.at the end of the day the author does have a life and he can't spend all his time thinking up of these improvements and then putting them into his manga.
As Cold-NiTe said, the author seems to be refusing to take advantage of his own mechanics and settings in favor of flashier and more powerful jutsu.
So... where did you get the idea that that would be necessary? There are already numerous examples of genjutsu being used to selectively alter the perceived environment.How hard do you think it would be to project every single detail in your sorroundings into the enemy's mind... and also alter it into their point of view
Additionally, since all genjutsu we've seen are used against other persons, changing the perspective is very much a standard thing and is of no particular importance.
Examples of genjutsu that alter only a portion of the opponents' perceived environment:
Kasumi Jusha - the illusory black liquid clones used by the trio of rain genin during the chuunin exam
Kori Shinchu - the genjutsu which caused Naruto's team to wander in circles during the chuunin exam
Magen: Jubaku Satsu - the genjutsu used by Kurenai against Itachi
Magen: Kokoni Arazu no Jutsu - the genjutsu used to change the apparent meeting room number at the beginning of the chuunin exam
Narakumi no Jutsu - the genjutsu used by Kakashi during the first bell trial causing Sakura to see a dying Sasuke
Really the only genjutsu I can think of that alter "every single detail in your surroundings" are Kokuangyo (the first Hokage's darkness illusion), Mateki: Mugen'onsa (the musical genjutsu used by the female of the sound four), and Tsukuyomi.
It has been stated and shown that the byakugan is capable of seeing through things like trees, walls, and mist, meaning paper and smoke would be useless. It is arguable that a flashbomb might still blind a byakugan user, but as the mechanics of their sight don't appear to have anything to do with light*, I very much doubt it.its not exactly hard to blind a byakugan user. Just because they can see in all directions doesn't mean a flashbang or smoke grenade won't work
*They have no pupils, for Christ's sake
Yes. Which, being ninja, all of the Naruto characters should try to do whenever possible.That's only possible if he sneaks up on an opponent.
It's not about being stupid, it's entirely about skill, intuition, and a little bit of luck. The way you talk it seems as though all ninja have the early SaGa "Warning" ability.No decent ninja would be stupid enough to expose his back to an opponent.
It is also worth noting that pretty much any angle other than dead-on would be sufficient for this use. At an intermediate distance, even a deviation of ten degrees would be sufficient to cause the enemy to miss.
I never said they had to be done simultaneously, and in the hands of Naruto, kage bunshin pretty much screams "distraction" (I don't need to cite examples of this, surely?). Do recall that all of Naruto's kage bunshin can perform techniques, and that the regular bunshin no jutsu uses vanishingly little chakra.This would require two seals and Naruto and others at his level (at least during the first part of the manga) are nowhere near fast enough to pull off two seals as one without the opponent noticing.
As for "others at his level", "others at his level" couldn't use kage bunshin anyway. I never suggested anyone else mix bunshin types.
Anyway. I suppose I'm an idiot for falling for such an obvious troll, but while I tolerate asininity fairly well, mixed with hubris it rankles to no end.
