Is there a way to identify the characters/variables that have the greatest impact on the inference of a phylogenetic tree?

I have a dataset of molecular sequences from which I have inferred a phylogenetic tree (a.k.a a dendrogram) with various algorithms (maximum parsimony, neighbor-joining, and maximum likelihood). What I would like to know is whether there is a way to measure the effect that either one character or several characters has on the inference of the phylogenetic tree.
