Why is Sasuke’s Rinnegan is Different?

Together with Naruto, Sasuke is one of the most powerful Shinobi in the world. Sasuke was a key player in this Shinobi conflict and was among the reasons why the present world is peaceable.

As Naruto and Sasuke were granted their chakras by Hagoromo Otsutsuki, each developed their unique abilities.

Sasuke, in particular, has developed the most potent dojutsu. Rinnegan, the most powerful dojutsu, was developed by Sasuke in particular.

But, its unique design has us wondering about the motive behind it and if it confers any unique power.

In the Shinobi War, Sasuke Uchiha received half of Hagoromo Otsutsuki’s energy and activated a new Rinnegan, which was a unique 6 Tomoe Rinnegan within his left eye.

Since Sasuke’s Rinnegan was developed from his Eternal Mangekyou Sharean, it kept its original form and gained new powers like Amenotojeikara, Chibaku Tensei, etc. 

In contrast to Sharingan, Sasuke’s Rinnegan is always active and cannot be reverted to its previous condition.

The Rinnegan is known as the most exalted of eyes amongst all of the “Three Great Dojutsu.” The other two include those of the Sharingan and the Byakugan. 

It’s characterised by a ripple that spreads across the eyeball.

There is a way to get the spirit of Rinnegan by obtaining Hagoromo’s energy through mixing the chakras of his sons, or by directly receiving it from Hagoromo himself.

Why is Sasuke’s Rinnegan different?

Why is Sasuke’s Rinnegan is Different

Sasuke’s Rinnegan differs from the standard Rinnegan by having three tomoes in its two circles on the inside, for an overall total of six.

The reason Sasuke’s Rinnegan differs from others is that he didn’t spontaneously awaken it but rather was given it as an offer by Hagoromo’s spirit. Hagoromo during an almost-death condition.

Because of this, the already awake Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan transformed into the form of a Rinnegan with all its abilities from the beginning, as well as the new abilities.

But, if his chakra reserves are reduced to a certain point and the tomoe’s aura disappears as well, Rinnegan will assume the appearance of the common man.

How did Sasuke find his Rinnegan?

In this time of the Shinobi conflict, Sasuke met certain conditions established in the works of Hagoromo Otsutsuki. 

As a result, Sasuke received half of his chakra and awoke the Rinnegan in his left eye, as well as six tomoes in total.

This Rinnegan was developed from the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan. It kept both its original and new abilities.

What is his Story with Mangekyou?

Sasuke had already activated the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan during his time in the Great Shinobi War. 

After receiving half of Hagoromo’s Chakra, the Sharingan inside his left eye transformed into the form of a Rinnegan.

Sasuke’s Rinnegan is distinct from the standard Rinnegan in the sense that Sasuke does not lose the Mangekyou Sharingan, but instead, his powers are embodied in six tomoe that are placed on the rings of the Rinnegan.

But, if his chakra reserves drop to a certain amount, then the tomoe disappears and the Rinnegan adopts the well-recognized look. 

In the same way, Sasuke’s Rinnegan can access the abilities and techniques that he had in his former Mangekyou Sharingan.

Can Sasuke disable his Rinnegan?

Like Sharingan, Sasuke’s Rinnegan is always active and cannot be restored to its previous condition. 

Despite this, it does not impact the strength or chakra levels of Sasuke.

He’s only able to disable the tomoes. So, while the powers of Rinegan may be reduced, they cannot be removed.

What powers and abilities are available to Sasuke to utilize?

Why is Sasukes Rinnegan is Different 1 Why is Sasuke’s Rinnegan is Different?

Rinnegan is a powerful chakra and boasts a staggering visual power. 

The Rinnegan can perceive chakra and its movement throughout the body, as well as invisible barriers.

The possession of Rinnegan lets one quickly master any Jutsu and also the five fundamental natural transformations. 

This is also the sole Dojutsu that can fully comprehend the Sage of Six Paths’ stone tablet.

Pattern Recognition

Sasuke’s Rinnegan is unique and comes with numerous abilities. One of its strengths is the recognition of patterns. 

It helps him identify patterns in codes and, by looking at similar patterns, determine the meaning of what is written.

When he is used in this way, the computer can get a lot of information from a small piece of text.


Sasuke can employ Amenotejikara a technique for space-time that Sasuke can employ due to being blessed by his Sage of Six Paths ability. 

It is Sasuke’s most popular technique, which allows him to quickly change the positions of two targets within a certain area.

Utilizing the left side of his eyes, Sasuke can shift his eyes around, causing everything that is currently in the space that he is targeting to move with him. 

It is also possible to use this technique to escape confinement and hold the opponent at your side.

Sasuke is also able to use this technique to target other objects or individuals by using it to shift the target to a different area in the vicinity. 

But, the target must be within a certain distance of him for the technique to work.

After acquiring the power of his Rinnegan, Sasuke had to wait for his eyes to recharge after having used this technique several times at rapid intervals. Now, Sasuke can use this method even if his Rinnegan’s strength is reduced.

Space-time Ninjutsu

Space-Time Ninjutsu is a method that lets users manipulate the time continuum of space. 

With it, Sasuke can detect changes over time, but it’s not clear whether he can negate the effects that it has on him.

By manipulating a certain location in space, he’s able to turn anything into a dimension in space and then teleport it to another place. 

In addition, he summons creatures as well as the ten sealed creatures.

Space-Time Ninjutsu permits him to get around any barriers. Ninjutsu in which barriers are only attached to the dimensions on which they are located.

In the same way, it is not able to stop Space-Time Ninjutsu users from escaping into a dimensionless space.

At the age of adulthood, Space-Time Ninjutsu was advanced enough to be able to travel through different dimensions.

Shinra Tensei

Shinra Tensei is a technique that is used in the Deva Path of the Rinnegan. 

Shinra Tensei can only be employed by those who can manipulate the five fundamental natural transformations. 

The user feels like there is a “repulsive force” that can push away everything in its way.

Since Sasuke has discovered his Rinnegan and has mastered the five fundamental nature transformations, he has successfully met all requirements and can utilize his Shinra Tensei.


A Mangekyo Sharingan comes to life after witnessing a sad event, like seeing your loved ones die in front of your eyes.

Every Mangekyo Sharingan is different. Kamui is ninjutsu with space-time which can be utilized in conjunction with Obito Uchiha’s Mangekyou Sharingan.

Sasuke is already equipped with his special ability, Amaterasu, and, therefore, can’t make use of Kamui. However, he can attain similar abilities through his Rinnegan.


Itachi’s Mangekyou Sharingan dojutsu is one of the most powerful genjutsu currently in existence.

Once a person has made eye contact with a person and observed them, the user can create an illusion of his design. 

With this unique capability to alter the target’s sense of timing, the target could be made to suffer hours of torture within a matter of minutes.

When Sasuke used Itachi’s eyes to activate his Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan, he didn’t disclose the Tsukuyomi. 

He instead discovered unique special abilities for both eyes, including Amaterasu. In conclusion, Sasuke cannot use Tsukuyomi.

The Six Paths Technique

The Six Paths Technique is the basis of the methods attributed to Rinnegan. People who can use the Rinnegan can access all of these techniques.

Sasuke uses these methods to detect invisible targets, ward off the infinite Tsukuyomi results, and then turn his Susanoo into an instrument to hold the tail chakra of beasts, just as that of the Demonic Statue from The Outer Path. The strategies follow:

The Deva Path

The Deva Path gives the user the ability to manipulate forces and to attract or repel objects and individuals. 

This deva path also gives another ability: Chibaku Tensei, which allows the user to construct an enormous terrestrial body out of all of the matter around them.

The Asura Path

Asura Path Asura Path allows the user to improve their body and summon mechanized armor as well as various mechanical and ballistic weapons.

The Human Path

Human Path Rinnegan grants a Rinnegan user the capability to see the thoughts of any person by placing his hands on the head of the target or on his chest. 

It can also draw the soul of the target from its body. The method, however, can kill the target in the end.

The Animal Path

The Animal Path gives the Rinnegan user the ability to summon many animals and other creatures. 

To summon creatures, this path does not require hand seals or blood sacrifices.

The Preta Path

Preta Path grants the user the capability to absorb chakras in all ways. This is mostly a defense ability because it can get chakra from people through physical contact.

Additionally, it is also true that it is possible that the Preta Path can absorb ninjutsu-based techniques that are pure chakra or chakra-based, thus removing their effects.

The Naraka Path

Naraka Path: The Naraka Path gives the user two major abilities through the God of Hell.

“The King” of Hell is a huge head that rises from the ground and is surrounded by flames. It also has the Rinnegan and shared vision field. 

Another attribute that the Naraka Path possesses is the ability to repair any damage. The Outer Path

The outer path is an ability that gives those who wield the Rinnegan the ability to control the cycle of life and death. 

With this power, it is possible to revive the dead with this technique called the Samsara of Heavenly Life, but at the expense of the life of the user.

By following this route, you can make black receivers. And by transmitting their chakra through these receivers, one can make anyone touch them. 

Through the implanting of black receivers into dead bodies, one can bring them back to life and control them from afar, thus completing one of the Six Paths of Pain.
