Many dojutsu have been introduced to the Naruto universe. These are Sharingan and its stages, Byakugan, and the legendary Rinnegan. We won’t get into the details of Jougan, Tensaigan and Isshikis chakra eye. Today, we will see if Rinnegan can summon the Sharingan.
Sharingan is made up of three stages. Sometimes the ability differences between the two last stages are almost negligible. You can read more about the Mangekyou abilities in our blog. The legendary Rinnegan is also possible through the succession of eternal Mangekyou Sharingan. The succession can only be achieved by Indra and Ashura chakra, or getting Sage of Six Paths Chakra.
If an Uchicha can check all of the above conditions, they will become a Rinnegan. The basic Rinnegan abilities will be granted to this Rinnegan, including mastery over all natural styles, yin/yang styles and puppetry, complete control over the 6 paths, and chakra absorption. They may also develop new abilities like Sasuke’s space-time ninjutsu or teleportation.
Can A Rinnegan User Use Mangekyou Abilities?
Yes, it is. Rinnegan users can use their mangekyou Sharingan abilities. We’ve only seen two Otsutsuki people use Rinnegan so far. These are Madara, Sasuke (Nagato’s is a different case).
However, they cannot use all Mangekyou Sharingan capabilities.
Can A Rinnegan User Use Susanoo?
Yes, a rinnegan user can use Susanoo. Madara used all his stages during the fight against the Shinobi alliance. He begins with a simple Sharingan post-revival. He then uses his eternal mangekyou, Rinnegan, during his fight. His eternal mangekyou Susanoo helped him build a pile full of corpses. Naruto throws a Rasenshuriken at Madara and he activates his Rinnegan. He absorbs it. Madara still uses his Susanoo even after activating his Rinnegan. Susanoo, which is a Mangekyou ability, is something we all know. Sasuke and Itachi could also use it without Rinnegan. This is one more proof that Rinnegan can use Mangekyou capabilities.
Mangekyou abilities can vary from one person to the next. Mangekyou abilities can be used to attack physical targets like amaterasu, kamui and immobility. Many of them are genjutsu-based, such as Tsukuyomi and Kotoamatsukami.
Can Rinnegan users use Genjutsu?
According to what we’ve seen, Genjutsu can be used by Rinnegan users. We can see Madara and Sasuke using their Mangekyou skills while using Rinnegan like Susanoo. It is safe to assume that they can also use Genjutsu. Madara also created the Infinite Tsukuyomi casting technique. Its design on the moon is very similar to Sasuke’s Rinne-sharingan. It is also Rinnegan. It is therefore safe to assume that Rinnegan can also be used for genjutsu.
There are three additional instances in anime and manga where a Rinnegan user casts an genjutsu.
- Nagato put his army under a Genjutsu, in which they couldn’t reveal any information about him.
- Second, Sasuke placed all tailed animals in a Genjutsu. He controlled them with one glance.
- Third, when Sasuke deflected Infinite Tsukuyomi. Although not exactly a Genjutsu, the feat Sasuke achieves is very similar to Edo Tensei Itachi’s release using Kotoamatsukami.
We are now able to ask another question about Mangekyou’s most powerful abilities and Rinnegan.
Can Rinnegan users use Izanagi and Izanami?
It has never been touched on in anime or manga. Sharingan is used by all Izanagi and Izanami users. It seems that there is no. It would also be foolish to use any of these forbidden tricksus on a Rinnegan eye. The rinnegan has a wide range of abilities, in addition to its mangekyou abilities. Sasuke could be a different case.
Rinnegan was used by all previous users. This could be because of the way they did it. Madara gives Nagato Rinnegan. Madara, however, obtained it unnaturally by harvesting Ashura chakra. Sasuke, however, received pure Otsuki Chakra directly from Hagoromo. He was able to manifest a RinneSharingan. Eyes of Gods like Kaguya or Hagoromo.
Sasuke’s Rinnegan has the ability to see in normal Sharingans. Sasuke can slowly progress from Sharingan to Rinnegan, and vice versa. It is possible that Sasuke could use Izanami or Izanagi. That is something we have yet to see. It is possible to see this happen in their fight against Isshiki.
What do you think? Is it possible for Sasuke to use both the rinnegan abilities and those of Sharingan simultaneously? We’d love to hear your comments in the comments section below.
