Character Uchiha Clan

The Sharingan has two main abilities: The Eye of Insights and the Eye of Hypnotism. The first one grants the bearer supernatural perception, the ability to see Chakra and its color and most importantly it can copy any form of Jutsu.

The other one allows the user to activate the Genjutsu: Sharingan, it puts the target in a hypnotic state that he cannot escape from. And the most talented ninjas can also predict the future (Naruto Chapter 230).

Now, this is a boring explanation of how the Sharingan works. The truth is its much more complicated and much cooler than that. But if Im gonna start explaining we will need an entirely new blog.

Premiered Oct 3, 2002
Episode Count 220 episodes
Duration 23 min. per ep.
Character Nagato, Madara, Sasuke

Compared to the Rinnegan, the Sharingan and the Byakugan are just weak. In Naruto it is said that when a ninja will appear in possession of those eyes, he will either turn into a God of Creation or on the contrary a God of Destruction.

He can either bring peace to the entire world or if he turns out evil will turn it into nothingness . Thats how powerful those pairs of eyes are. They hold control over the lives of millions, they hold the future for the world in their palms, if they had palms…

A Rinnegan user can easily learn to use any kind of jutsu to perfection. He can see chakra and chakra flow as well as any kind of invisible barriers.

Those eyes can read the Sage of Six Paths Stone Tablet and he can activate six different abilities at the same time. Its called the Six Paths Techniques and each technique could wipe out a village (Naruto Chapter 419).

Okya, there are still many more skills a Rinnegan holder can use and to be honest if Im gonna continue we will still be here tomorrow. I think this is enough to convince of just how destructive that eye is.

Duration 23 min. per ep.
Character Gojo Satoru

To be honest, the truth behind the Six Eyes is still shrouded in mysteries. What we are certain of is that they are the reason behind Gojos omnipotent power.

They can mess with the space-time continuum, turning the world, and reality into nothing more than a concrete concept of the holder making the universe an item that can be defined in terms of mass, velocity, and energy (Jujutsu Kaisen Manga: Chapter 0-4).


If you had the opportunity to choose one eye, one eye that will become yours forever, which will it be?

In my case, I know Im cliché, but, if I can get eyes that will turn me into practically a God while at the same time being the most beautiful things I have ever seen then Ill definitely go for Gojos eyes, they are just stunning. So, its two birds with one stone technically.
