The Uchiha Clan is one of the most powerful and well-known clans in the Naruto universe. All the Uchiha Clan members have a special Dojutsu Eye called Sharingan and it is evolved into advanced versions like Mangekyo Sharingan, and Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan. Which gives them access to perform Genjutsu, enhanced visual abilities, and also the ability to copy any Jutsu.
Using their Visual Eye powers, Uchiha Clan has developed several powerful techniques to maximize their visual powers, Those Uchiha Clan Techniques made them feared and respected in the Shinobi world.
So today we gonna break down all the Uchiha Clan Techniques used in the Naruto series, We gonna look at some of the most powerful and popular techniques of the Uchiha Clan. Which includes their signature the Amaterasu and the Kagutsuchi, as well as their powerful Genjutsu techniques such as the Tsukuyomi and the Kotoamatsukami. So without any delay let us dive into it.
Sharingan is the starting level of the Visual eye in the Uchiha Clan, there are various levels in Sharingan like 1 Tomeo, 2 Tomeo, and 3 Tomeo Sharingan in the Naruto Series with each increasing level of the Sharingan the abilities of the Sharingan are enhanced to the next level. To increase the level of the Sharingan the user should experience situations like Near Death or a close person suffering. Let’s look at some of the abilities of Sharingan.
Track, Predict, and Copy Opponent Movements
Using the Sharingan the user can Track, Predict and Copy opponent movements, Without any Taijutsu training he can become a skilled Taijutsu Shinobi by just analyzing the opponent’s movements with his Sharingan or can use it to predict or copy jutsu like Kakashi. His abilities increase as his Sharingan upgrades to 2 Tomeo, and 3 Tomeo Sharingan.
A Sharingan user can also cast Genjutsu on the opponent to get classified information from the Shinobi or to defeat him in a fight. But the normal Sharingan Genjutsu is weak compared to the Mangekyo Sharingan, Some skilled Shinobi can get out of normal Sharingan Genjutsu with ease. But it mostly does the job because it is mostly not used against tough opponents.
Every Uchiha can use this Izanagi Uchiha Clan Technique. But in order to use this Technique the user should have both Senju Chakra and a Sharingan. Using this technique the user can change the reality to his needs as long as the Izanagi is active. In normal Genjutsu the user applies Genjutsu to the opponent’s Senses, but using Izanagi the user applies Genjutsu to reality itself.
This technique is used by Danzo several times with multiple Sharingans and Obito Uchiha against Konan to escape from the Explosion jutsu. The drawback of this Jutsu is when Izanagi jutsu is used the user would lose one of his eyes in exchange for changing reality.
It is one of the ultimate Uchiha Clan Techniques, The Izanami is a Genjutsu that affects the opponent’s physical sense. So even if the opponent doesn’t look through the user’s eyes the Izanami can still be used on the opponent. Using the Izanami the user puts the opponent in a loop based on the recently copied movement of the opponent using his Sharingan and plays an endless loop of situations using those copied movements.
The loop is endlessly played and the opponent experiences it until he accepts his destiny and realizes who he is. Only Itachi used the Izanami technique and he used it on Kabuto to stop the reanimation jutsu. Itachi stated that Izanami and Izanagi techniques form a pair. The Izanagi is a technique where destiny is altered, whereas the Izanami is instead one that decides it.
Mangekyo Sharingan is one of the strongest visual eyes in the Naurto and also the most used eye in the entire Naruto story. To awaken a Mangekyo Sharingan the user should experience his close relative death or see a heartbreaking scene, Obito awakened the Mangekyo Sharingan by seeing Rin’s death, Itachi awakened it by seeing Shisui’s death, Madara by killing his close friend, Fugaku awakened Mangekyo Sharingan by seeing many shinobi death in the Ninja wars. And because of experiencing such painful moments, they unlock some deadly powers with the help of the Mangekyo Sharingan.
Mangekyo Sharingan Abilities
The ability of the Mangekyo Sharingan varies from user to user, Every Mangekyo Sharingan user has different abilities and access to different Uchiha Clan Techniques. But they are many Uchiha Clan members who awakened the Mangekyo Sharingan and they are too many Uchiha Clan Techniques to cover. So, let us look at some of the most powerful Mangekyo Sharingan Uchiha Clan Techniques.
Every Uchiha who awakens the Mangekyo Sharingan gets access to half-body Susanoo, which is more than enough to defeat Jonin-level Shinobi and can also be used to go against a Kage-Level shinobi but the chances of winning are less compared to Jonin-Level.
But Itachi is an exception to this, Itachi Susanoo has some additional weapons like Totsuka Blade, Yata Mirror, and Sealing Gourd that no other Susanoo has in the Naruto series. Even though Itachi had a Half Body Susanoo, his Susanoo is still considered as one of the Strongest Susanoo in Naruto.
Kamui is a unique ability of Obito Mangekyo Sharingan, Only Obito Mangekyo Sharingan has access to the Kamui technique. Using the Kamui technique Obito can enter into another Dimension known as the Kamui Dimension and he can store his weapons and enemies or hostages in that Dimension.
Only Obito Mangekyo Sharingan has the access to enter and exit the Kamui world, But the Obito mastered Kamui in such a way that he can teleport parts of his body for a certain time to the Kamui dimension which makes him untouchable in a fight. When an opponent strikes him he goes hollow and the attack goes through Obito after that, he makes his body solid and attacks the opponent which makes him invincible in any fight.
The Amaterasu technique is a unique technique that is first used by Indra Otsutsuki in the fight with his brother Asura Otsutsuki. Later on, it is awakened by Itachi Mangekyo Sharingan which is passed on to Sasuke. The Amaterasu or Eternal Flames is a technique that completely destroys the thing or Shinobi it is used on.
Amaterasu doesn’t stop or run out until it completely destroys the Shinobi or the thing that it is used on. And if anybody tries to stop it by making physical contact with the flames, it also destroys the contacted person. Which makes it one of the deadly Uchiha Clan Techniques in Naruto.
This technique is an advancement of the Amaterasu technique, It is used by Sasuke to combine the Amaterasu with the Rashenshuriken Jutsu. After Sasuke awakened the Mangekyo Sharingan he was able to control, or exhaust the Eternal flames. He was also able to shape the Amaterasu into weapons with his Mangekyo Sharingan, using this ability he enhanced the Amaterasu flame and match it to Rashenshurien energy which made it a super deadly jutsu in the fight with Ten-Tails Obito.
Tsukyomi is also one of the Mangekyo Sharingan abilities of Itachi, It is just the mini version of the Infinite Tsuykyomi which puts everyone in the Shinobi world to deep sleep, whereas Itachi Tsukuyomi puts a certain shinobi in Tsukuyomi and can make them feel years of Pain whereas in the real-time it just be a couple of minutes. Itachi used this technique on Kakashi, Orochimaru, and Izumi Uchiha.
This is the 2nd strongest Genjutsu in Narutoverse after Infinite Tsukuyomi, The Kotoamatsukami is the ability of the Shisui Mangekyo Sharingan, using this technique Shisui can cast a powerful mind control Genjutsu on the opponent. The Kotoamatsukami allows Shisui to enter the mind of the target and manipulate them with Fake Experiences in their life.
And make it seem like they are doing things of their own will but in reality, they are completely controlled by Shisui. The interesting part of this jutsu is the opponent doesn’t even know that they were in Genjutsu nor recognize that they are getting manipulated.
Also, there is not much of a drawback to the Kotoamatsukami compared to Izanagi and Izanami. After using this technique the user ( Shisui ) can’t use the Kotoamatsukami again until 10 more years. But the Mangekyo Sharingan stays intact and doesn’t go blind.
This technique is so powerful that Shisui is ordered by the 3rd Hoakge to use this on the entire Uchiha Clan. If at all a Coup d’etat is planned by Uchiha Clan against leaf village, although it never happened it still remains as the 2nd powerful Genjutsu in the Naurutoverse.
Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan
The Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan is a power up to the normal Mangekyo Sharingan. The Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan is achieved when a normal Mangekyo Sharingan user transplants another Blood-Related Mangekyo Sharingan user’s eyes. The only Uchiha’s who awakened the Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan is Madara and Sasuke Uchiha. Madara took his brother Izuna Mangekyo Sharingan and Sasuke took his brother Itachi Mangekyo Sharingan.
Difference between Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan and Mangekyo Sharingan
There are not many additional abilities that an Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan user gets compared to a normal Magekyo Sharingan. The Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan users get access to the Full Body Susanoo or Perfect Susanoo after awakening the Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan.
Also, less strain is kept on the Mangekyou Sharingan eyes when using Techniques like Amaterasu, which means they don’t go blind easily compared to Normal Mangekyo Sharingan users.
But when used techniques like Izanagi and Izanami the effect is similar to normal Mangekyo Sharingan and they lose one of their Eyes in exchange for using Izanagi or Izanami. Also, their normal Mangekyo Sharingan Abilities are enhanced when they awaken the Eternal Mangeyo Sharingan. This means Techniques like Amaterasu will be enhanced.
The Rinnnegan is the highest level of visual power in the Narutoverse. Only 2 of the Uchiha Clan members Madara and Sasuke are able to awaken the Rinengan. An Uchiha Clan member can awaken Rinnegan when his Chakra ( Indra Chakra ) and a Senju Clan chakra are combined like Madara did after his fight with Hashirama Senju or another way is to directly get it from Sage of Six Paths itself just like Sasuke got in the 4th Great Ninja War to stop Madara.
Just like Mangekyo Sharingan the Rinnegan ability also varies from user to user. Shinobi who used the Rinnegan are Pain, Obito, Madara, and Sasuke so there are many techniques that each of them used in the Naruto Story. So it would be a long list if we have to discuss all of them. So let us look at the popular and most powerful Rinnnegan Techniques that we got to see in the Naruto Anime.
The limbo technique is the Rinnegan ability of Madara Uchiha, Using the limbo technique Madara can create invisible clones of himself and use them like Naruto Shadow Clone Jutsu. But the main difference and advantage of Limbo is that they cannot be seen nor sensed by normal shinobi. Only Sasuke can see them because of his Rinnegan and Naruto can sense them because of Naruto having the Sage of Six Paths Chakra. Madara used this Limbo technique in the fight with Naruto and Sasuke.
Next on the list, we have the Chibaku Tensei, which is one of the most used Rinnegan techniques in the Naruto series. This technique is used by the Sage of Six Paths, Naruto and Sasuke to seal Kaguya ( Ten-Tails ), Nagato to seal Kurama, and Madara to crush an entire Shinobi Alliance division in a single blow.
Using the Chibaku Tensei the user can create a huge boulder in the sky and can seal anyone inside the huge Boulder, we got to see Kaguya and Naruto getting sealed by Chibaku Tensei. But Madara took a different approach in using the Chibaku Tensei instead of using it for sealing, he used it as a weapon against the Shinobi Alliance.
Shinra Tensei is also one of the popular Rinnegan techniques in Naruto Anime. This technique is used by Nagato ( Pain ) to destroy the whole hidden leaf village in one blow in the Pain Arc of Naruto Anime. He also used this technique several other times in the series, but he used this technique on full-scale to destroy Hidden Leaf Village. He used the Repulsion power of the Rinnegan and used the full power of it to destroy the Leaf Village.
The most powerful Rinnegan technique is Rinne Rebirth, this technique allows the user to bring back people from death. This technique is used by several Rinnegan users Obito to bring back Madara, and Nagato to bring all the Leaf village Shinobi he killed to live. By using all of his Chakra left to do the Rinne Rebirth on a Full Scale.
