Eyes in Naruto have always been one of the characteristics that bring a lot of strength to the characters. Most of the characters possessing various types of jutsu in Naruto have top-notch offensive and defensive skills, making viewers excited every time they appear.
Let’s learn about all the eyes in the Naruto and Boruto series with Naruto Universe in the following article.
1. Byakugan – White Eye
Byakugan is the kekkei genkai of the Hyuga clan and is possessed by members of the clan such as Hyuga Neji, Hyuga Hinata, and Himawari (Naruto’s daughter). The telltale sign of the Byakugan is the characteristic white eyes and no pupils, when used, the user will have many veins on both sides of the temples.
Byakugan’s eyes give the wearer 360-degree vision, except for a small blind spot behind the first thoracic vertebra (near the back of the neck). This is also the only known weakness of the Byakugan until now.
Byakugan users can detect anything around them within a 50 meter radius (and were later developed by Hyuga Neji and attempted to increase the radius to 800 meters), making them experts at close range combat. .
With the Byakugan activated, the user can see through most matter over great distances. Since vision cannot be blocked, the Byakugan is useful for finding, tracking, and targeting.
In its advanced form, the Byakugan user can see individual tenketsu, which in turn allows them to completely shut off their opponent’s chakra flow and render them unable to perform techniques that require chakra. Seasoned Byakugan users can even kill people with one hit without any difficulty.
Uchiha clan also possesses the kekkei genkai limited to Sharingan eyes. Sharingan’s first and most famous ability is to remember any technique the owner has ever witnessed. Accurate and perfect memorization of ninjutsu, genjutsu and taijutsu makes it possible for the user to copy and perform these moves without learning and practicing.
However, in order to do so, the Sharingan possessor must already have physical abilities such as the amount of chakra, stamina, agility, and strength needed to perform the said technique. Additionally, the Sharingan cannot duplicate any other kekkei genkai or summon a being the user has not contracted with.
Sharingan is also capable of predicting the opponent’s movements, as well as allowing to track fast-moving objects clearly. The special thing about the Sharingan is its unique hypnotic ability.
Like the Byakugan, the Sharingan can also see through genjutsu. However, if the Byakugan cannot be blocked from seeing, the Sharingan can be completely covered with a cloth to block its ability.
Despite being a limited kekkei genkai, the Sharingan is not available when a member of the Uchiha clan is born and needs to be activated in a dangerous situation. After this first appearance, the user can use the Sharingan any time they want.
The strength of the Sharingan is measured by the number of tomoes in the eye, it is not uncommon for each eye to have a different amount of tomoe (e.g. Sasuke’s Sharingan originally had two tomoes in one eye and one in the other). . A complete Sharingan has three tomoes in each eye. In addition to the basic form, the Sharingan eyes in Naruto also have two more advanced forms, Mangekyou Sharingan and the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan.
Mangekyou Sharingan can only be activated when two conditions are met: possessing a perfect basic Sharingan and experiencing psychological trauma like watching a loved one die in front of them. The Mangekyou Sharingan takes on a different form between each possessor.
In addition to the basic powers, Mangekyou Sharingan offers different powerful abilities in each user such as using the flame of Amaterasu or performing Susanoo.
Despite the immense power, the user of this jutsu also has to pay the heavy price of severe vision loss after each use and the final result is blindness.
Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan can only be obtained by receiving another Mangekyou Sharingan from another member of the Uchiha family. This allows the recipient to gain the power of the Mangekyou Sharingan without losing sight.
Another interesting thing is that it is possible to transplant Sharingan eyes from one person to another, as was the case with Kakashi when he was given an eye by Obito Uchiha after his death.
However, the transplanted eyes can make the non-Uchiha user more difficult than usual, and using the Sharingan for long periods of time will cause them to collapse.
Rinnegan is an extremely powerful kekkei genkai in the Naruto world that so far only a few people have awakened to. While the Sharingan and Byakugan need to be activated to use, the Rinnegan is always activated.
Known as the strongest eye in Naruto among the Three Great jutsu, Rinnegan is capable of conjuring all ninjutsu and bringing the user to near-divine levels.
Rinnegan grants the user the ability to use the Six Paths technique. While near the moon, Rinne Sharingan will awaken on the possessor’s forehead, thereby unleashing Infinite Tsukuyomi, enveloping everyone under the moonlight in a Genjutsu.
Rinnegan also has the ability to repel light, and when used with Susanoo, it can prevent others from protesting during the genjutsu it generates. Becoming a jinchriki of the Ten-Tails also requires a Rinnegan.
Another interesting point is that the Rinnegan gives different powers to each user. If Sasuke’s Rinnegan allows him to switch places with an object or person within a certain range of him and create portals to other dimensions, then Momoshiki can absorb any ninjutsu or chakra using it. Rinnegan of the right hand and make it stronger than the Rinnegan of the left hand. Urashiki’s blue Rinnegan also allows time and space travel.
Those who possess the Rinnegan include: Sage of the Six Paths, Nagato, Uchiha Obito, Uchiha Madara, Nagato, Uchiha Sasuke, Zetsu, Urashiki Otsutsuki, Kara’s Ten-Tails, and Momoshiki Otsutsuki.
Out of all the eyes in Naruto, Tenseigan is the eye that carries the most destructive power and power in the shinobi world on the moon. Hamura Otsutsuki (the younger brother of the Sage of the Six Paths) was the first to possess these eyes. Tenseigan has blue pupils, and the irises are shaped like a white flower with many petals.
The two conditions are determined to get this Tenseigan eye: First, it must be a descendant of Hamura (inheriting the Six Chakras). Second, that person must be implanted with the pure Byakugan of the Hyuga clan.
The strength of the Tenseigan has not been revealed much yet. As far as we know, Tenseigan has the full capabilities of the Six Paths, the 5 basic chakra systems, and the yin-yang predilection.
New to Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, Boruto’s Jougan is among the top unique jutsu whose powers are known only to the Otsutsuki clan. Jougan’s eyes are blue with a black sclera and a halo around the pupil.
Up to now, Boruto’s audience has known 3 types of Jougan’s powers. One is the ability to see and feel chakras including the dark chakra. It can activate on its own, especially when surrounded by dangerous elements. Boruto has yet to gain full control of this ability.
Jougan’s second ability is to see a chakra system similar to the Byakugan, but it has an advantage over the Byakugan as Boruto can even detect important chakra points. Finally, Boruto can see invisible barriers connecting different dimensions.
Ketsuryugan is perhaps one of the least known eyes in Naruto, appearing only on certain individuals of the Chinoike clan. The blood-red eyes afforded by this limited dynamometer allow the wielder to control the flow of blood, or more precisely, control the iron in the blood. From there, they can control any liquid containing iron, causing the opponent’s body to explode if desired.
To answer the question of which eyes are the strongest in Naruto, it is definitely Rinne-Sharingan. A special combination of Rinnenga and Sharingan, two of the most powerful eyes in Naruto, Rinne-Sharingan has an enormous power that few can control. It was created to control magic around the world and to travel between dimensions. Only the possessor of the Rinne-Sharingan can cast Infinite Tsukoyomi.
Above is an article that summarizes the eyes in Naruto and their power. As can be seen, jutsu has always been one of the most powerful techniques in Naruto’s world. In the future, will the audience still witness the appearance of other eyes?
