A Mangekyo Sharingan is distinguished from a normal Sharingan by its appearance, which change the form of the tomoe seal. The exact design differs for each user, though all resemble pinwheels. It is at the beginning awakened by the trauma suffered from witnessing the death of someone close to the user. all Uchiha have historically misunderstood this criteria as the user needing to be responsible for the person’s (Friend) death, and for that reason they developed the practice of killing their closest friends in order to gain the Mangekyo Sharingan. Obito’s Mangekyo activated immediately after his trauma, whereas, in Naruto Jinraiden, Sasuke’s Mangekyo didn’t activate until several weeks afterwards.
Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan. The Eternal Mangekyo merge the designs of the transplanter and the transplantee’s original Mangekyo. Their Mangekyo based abilities are made stronger and they no longer suffer any negative side effects from the usage. According to Madara, the Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan is proof an Uchiha continues to seek something despite experiencing the great losses. Should the eyes evolve to this state, the user will keep all their previous techniques from their original eyes. In addition to the unique techniques, the straight tomoe form of Madara’s and Sasuke’s Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan grants them fluidity in their movements when fighting.
1 – Itachi Uchiha
Itachi Uchiha awakened his Mangekyo Sharingan after witnessing the suicide of his best friend, Shisui Uchiha, shortly before the Uchiha Clan Downfall. With his left Mangekyo he can use the Tsukuyomi, an extremely powerful genjutsu that distorts the victim’s sensibility of time. With his right Mangekyo he can use the Amaterasu, creating inextinguishable black flames at the user’s focal point. Because he awakened both his Mangekyo, he can use Susanoo. Use of the Mangekyo is particularly debilitating for Itachi Uchiha, such that after using it three times in one day he can no longer Use his normal Sharingan active. Some time after Itachi’s death, desiring the power to kill Naruto Uzumaki, Sasuke had Itachi’s eyes transplanted into him.
2 – Obito Uchiha
Obito Uchiha awakened his Mangekyo Sharingan after the death of Rin during the Third Shinobi World War; Obito Uchiha himself only had his right eye at the time, but the event caused his Mangekyo to simultaneously awaken in Kakashi Hatake, who wielded Obito’s left eye. Both eyes have access to Kamui, able to teleport the targets to and from Kamui’s Dimension though in the different manners. The right eye is able to use close range Kamui, teleporting the user or those they’re in contact with. By teleporting only Body parts of their body there, they can in effect seamlessly pass through other matter. The left eye is able to use the long-range Kamui, creating a barrier around the target that teleports them. The left eye can also target the user themselves. During the 4 Shinobi World War, it was discovered that each eye is impervious against the others’ Kamui.
Madara Uchiha steals Kakashi Hatake eye in order to pursue Obito to Kamui’s dimension. There, he exchanges the eye for Obito’s Rinnegan, returning both eyes to their original owner, who was currently possessed by the Black Zetsu. During this brief period, the Black Zetsu also gained access to both Sharingan powers. After Obito was freed from Black Zetsu’s control, he uses them in combination effectively thereafter, but the eye’s are destroyed when he is killed by Kaguya Otsutsuki’s All Killing Ash Bones. His spirit briefly returns to the living plane and inhabits Kakashi, giving him both Mangekyo’s with their respective abilities and, by extension, Susanoo.
3 – Madara Uchiha
Madara was the first Uchiha to awaken the Mangekyo Sharingan. Madara not known what the individual abilities of each of his eye’s were, but he was able to use Susanoo. When Madara’s over usage of his Mangekyo during the Warring States Period left him blind, this prompted his brother, Izuna, to bequeath Madara his eyes on his deathbed for the sake of preserving the Uchiha, thus granting Madara the Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan. The straight tomoe of his Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan granted him fluidity in his movements when fighting.
Towards the end of his life, Madara Uchiha was able to evolve his eyes into Rinnegan, which he transplanted to Nagato Uzumaki when Nagato was a child without anybody ever knowing. The eyes eventually found their way back to Madara Uchiha after he is revived.
4 – Izuna Uchiha
Izuna Uchiha awakened his Mangekyo Sharingan shortly after Madara did. It’s not known what the individual abilities of each of his eyes were. Before he died, Izuna entrusted his eyes to Madara in order to restore his vision and thus protect the Uchiha from the extinction. Despite Izuna giving the eyes willingly, Madara is popularly believed to have taken the eyes against Izuna’s will.
5 – Sasuke Uchiha
Sasuke awakened his Mangekyo Sharingan after the death of his older brother, Itachi. With his left Mangekyo he can cast Amaterasu. With his right Mangekyo he can shape the flames or extinguish them. Because he awakened both of his Mangekyo, he can use Susanoo. Sasuke is initially reluctant to transplant Itachi’s eyes and gain the Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan, claiming that his views were different from Itachi Uchiha. Later, he decided he needs the increase of strength in order to kill Naruto, along with the severe deterioration of his eyesight from overuse, Sasuke Uchiha accepted Itachi’s eyes transplant. The straight tomoe of his Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan grant him fluidity in his movements when fighting.
After acquiring the half of Hagoromo’s chakra, Sasuke’s left Mangekyo Sharingan evolved further into a unique version of the Rinnegan.
6 – Shisui Uchiha
Shisui Uchiha awakened his Mangekyo Sharingan after he allowed his friend and rival to die. With each of his eyes he could use the Kotoamatsukami, a powerful genjutsu that manipulates a target’s thoughts completely without any, including the target, having the no idea that they were being controlled. However, this technique can’t be used again until after a prolonged period of time. In the anime, awakening the Mangekyo Sharingan in both eyes allowed him to use Susanoo.
When Shisui Uchiha attempted to use Kotoamatsukami in order to avoid the Uchiha Clan Downfall, his right Mangekyo was stolen by Danzo Shimura, who felt Shisui’s plan was futile and wished to protect the village in his own manner. Fearful that Danzo would take his other eye too, Shisui entrusted it to his best friend, Itachi Uchiha, and begged him to use it to save Konoha. Danzo transplants the eye he took into himself and uses it over the years to manipulate others to his way of thinking, using the power of Hashirama Senju to reduce its recharge time. Danzo destroys the eye before his death so that nobody else could have it. Itachi Uchiha transplanted the eye he was given into a crow that he planned to use to re-ally his brother, Sasuke, with Konoha. He unintentionally used it on himself instead when he is reincarnated in order to break free of Kabuto Yakushi’s control. Itachi burn the crow by Amaterasu afterwards so that nobody else could have the eye.
7 – Indra Otsutsuki
In the manga, Indra Otsutsuki was the first user of Mangekyo Sharingan. The individual abilities of each of his eyes were unknown, except that he was able to use Susanoo. In the anime, he awakened his Mangekyo Sharingan after killing his own two followers. He was also able to utilise Amaterasu with his left eye.
8 – Shin Uchiha
This Mangekyo Sharingan form is uniquely shared between multiple (yet connected) individuals. With his right eye, Shin Uchiha is able to telekinetically manipulate any objects after first branding them with a special mark. Shin’s clones, being genetically identical to him, possess the same Mangekyo Sharingan design and with it the same telekinetic powers. A creature also shares the same Mangekyo Sharingan design with Shin.
9 – Fugaku Uchiha
In the anime, Fugaku Uchiha had awakened his Mangekyo Sharingan after witnessing a sacrifice of his dear friend during the 3 Shinobi World War. Although, not much is known about his Mangekyo, Fugaku was confident it was strong enough to control the Nine-Tails.
10 – Hagoromo Otsutsuki
In the anime, Hagoromo Otsutsuki awakened this power after risking his brother Hamura’s life to save him from Kaguya’s control; however, the design of his Mangekyo Sharingan (MS) is unknown because his eyes evolved into the Rinnegan at the same time. While the individual Mangekyo Sharingan (MS) techniques his eyes had are unknown, he was able to perform a massive Complete Body Susanoo, which was roughly the size of the Ten-Tails.
11 – Naka Uchiha
12 – Baru Uchiha
13 – Rai Uchiha
14 – Naori Uchiha
Hey guys. The Mangekyou Sharingan is one of the most rarest Kekkei Genkai in the Naruto series. This Kekkei Genkai is the pride of the Uchiha Clan of the Hidden Leaf. Throughout the series, we have seen many Mangekyou Sharingan users. Before I begin with the theory, let’s take a look at the history of Mangekyou Sharingan users. The Mangekyou Sharingan is the evolved form of the regular Sharingan.
The Mangekyou Sharingan is awakened after a person undergoes a severe emotional trauma. It may be a feeling of happiness, anger or sorrow. So, that’s the regular procedure of how a person awakens the Mangekyou Sharingan. When a person awakens the Mangekyou Sharingan, he/she gains a new ability. In this post, I’ll be discussing the why the specific person gained the specific ability after awakening the Mangekyou Sharingan. Let’s start with Obito. Obito’s Mangekyou Sharingan gave him the ability to use Kamui.
Right eye is short-distance and left is long-distance. Why is the Kamui Obito’s ability? It is because the Mangekyou ability is actually based off the trauma that a person has experienced and why they have unlocked the Mangekyou. Now, going back to why Obito got the Kamui. Obito was crushed under a boulder. What could have saved him? He could save himself with his short-distance Kamui. Moving on, when Kakashi used chidori on Rin, what could have saved her? Long range Kamui. That’s Obito wrapped up. Now we have Itachi Uchiha.
Itachi can control time within his world of Tsukuyomi. It is because of the rush, he was living in. Itachi was advancing through the shinobi ranks as a child. There was so much expectations put on him at a young age. He unlocked his Mangekyo because of the trauma from Shisui’s death. It’s no brainer that Itachi wanted more time with him before it was all over. Sasuke has two abilities in his Mangekyou Sharingan. First is the Amaterasu, and the second is the ability to extinguish the flames. It parallels his moral back-and-forth. Sasuke wanted to kill Itachi, and then he wished that he could take it back. This leaves us with Shisui Uchiha.
Shisui was a persuasive guy and we know that with enough shinobi/Uchiha manipulation, he could have saved both the clan and his village. Thus, Shisui got Kotoamatsukami. This is one of the best theories that I have read about Mangekyou Sharingan and its abilities.
That’s it from me.
