Mangekyo techniques are not unique with each individual

In chapter 463 Sasuke used Susanoo proving that MS techniques are not unique with each individual. Naruto databook states that anyone able to use Amaterasu and Tsukuyomi can summon Susanoo. It also states this about Kamui "If one spends a lot of time and trains one's chakra over and over again, this technique can be invoked". Meaning that Kakashis Kamui is also not a unique Mangekyo tech.HUNTER* (talk) 16:03, September 11, 2009 (UTC)

You cannot claim something like this. In chapter 397, Madara STATES the following: "Somehow, at the last second, he transferred all of his techniques to you." So that means he GAVE Sasuke Amaterasu, Susanno, and Tsukyomi. We know for a fact that the genjutsu isn't the latter due to the facts that the effects on the target aren't the same. In addition to this, Sasuke can also put out Amaterasu, a technique Itachi did not possess. With this evidence, and the fact that Kakashi has a mangekyo ninjutsu that is not Amaterasu, it can be said that the techniques DO differ from user to user. Or, you can still argue that they don't, though the clues favors the former. Either way we can't say which one for sure, it's just a matter of waiting. Until then, leave it the way it is.Macksoar* (User talk:Macksoar*talk) 18:49, September 11, 2009
Actually, you're basing that on a mistranslation. Madara said that Itachi transferred his dōjutsu to Sasuke and in retrospect, it was obvious he was only talking about that one-shot Amaterasu. The databooks all but literally state that Amaterasu, Tsukuyomi, and Susanoo are standard jutsu for Mangekyō Sahringan wielders. With the latest chapters, it became increasingly clear that any difference in abilities between Sasuke and Itachi is simply due to differences in skill and mastery and not due to different techniques.
Kamui's case is less clear though. It seems to be truly unique to Kakashi. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 01:08, September 12, 2009 (UTC)

Its probley sumthin 2 do with his transplanted eye...according 2 the 3rd databook, we are going to learn how Kakashi got the Mangekyo Sharingan so we r probley going 2 learn y he can use Kamui--Moiz1224 (talk) 01:58, September 12, 2009 (UTC)

it seems that the uchiha alone can only use amaterasu, tsukuyomi, and susaoo, kamui must be a special tech. that only people without uchiha blood can use, which would make a lot of sense, but we should rmove that part about unique techs., we can't base such info on a transplanted sharingan, unless we see an uchiha using kamui or some other unique tech. (talk) 13:32, September 12, 2009 (UTC)

Agreed. Nothing until it's confirmed. >>Macksoar

First of all Macksoar* Itachi did show the ability to extinguish Amatersu just like Madara did when Sasuke used Amaterasu on him,read the manga. Second of all Itachi didnt transplant all of his eye techs to Sasuke,that was a mistranlation. Third of all please read the databook before you post anything. The databook clearly states that ANYONE with MS can learn Kamui,this is from the databook translated about Kamui "If one spends a lot of time and trains one's chakra over and over again, this technique can be invoked". And lastly Kakashi can not use Amaterasu or Tsukuyomi because he doesnt possess the Uchiha blood and strong chakra to perform these techs. In my opinion the manga and the databook shows enough evidence that MS techniques are not unique with each individual.HUNTER* (talk) 01:58, September 18, 2009 (UTC)

Check the Talk:Madara's Teleporting Technique where I've said that Madara's teleporting jutsu could be an advanced form of Kamui - MadaraU (talk) 07:49, September 18, 2009 (UTC)

will someone please just remove the part about techniques being unique among individuals, we have given enough reason for that to be removed now. (talk) 20:55, October 24, 2009 (UTC)

Some techniques ARE unique and individual. Only Madara can Teleport, and only Kakashi can use Kamui.

I think You may be both right. Yes, Amaterasu, tsukuyomi, susanoo and Kamui are techniques that every MS user can learn. Proof of that is Sasuke and Itachi wich both share the same techniques. But I think that every MS user has some unique ability. Sasuke can extinguish or manipulate te flames of amaterasu. Itachi's tsukoyomi (in oposition to sasuke's) can alter the terget's perception of time. Finally Madara's version of Kamui is from another level compared to kakashi's. Susanoo's case is particular since the user needs to master amaterasu and tsukuyomi before he can use it. And he needs to have two healthy MS eyes. Neji uchiha (talk) 00:34, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

WoW that (^) makes a LOT of sense! Really good explanation :) [[darkestmoon]

Surely, sasuke's amerterasu is only better because he has always been a more agressive ninjutsu and taijutsu based fighter and itachi's tsukuyomi is more advanced due to the fact that he was a pacifist who prefered to neutralize his opponents at long range with genjutsu, these arent specific tech to anyone, saying it is,would be like saying that someone who can use a sword better than someone else has a unique skill. however blaze release could easiy be a specific mangekyou tech to sasuke, also is it ever stated anywhere that madara's teleport/absorb are MS tech, other than the fact the vortex occurs around his eye, we still havent seen his MS active other than flashbacks. (talk) 03:04, September 26, 2010 (UTC)

Actually kakashi's Kamui does bear a striking resemblance to tobi's space time ninjutsu. Madara even said something like the Kamui is not effective against him, therefore implying that he can dodge it easily or he is not affected by it. On the other jutsu it seems sensible to wait for the next few chapters —This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) .

considering Shisui's mangekyo,it looks like,(not counting Itachi and Sasuke).the only jutsu that different users have gotten,independent of each other is Tsukuyomi,itachi,and madara(its part of his master plan).Itachi and Sasuke have the same abillities(Itachi's better at Tsukuyomi,Sasukes better at amatrsu ,but that could be written up as them being brothers/the transcription thing/coincidence .Shisui had his for at least 10 years and has never used the 3 Itachi closed?but then you could always mention he might have used them off screen and never had it mentioned.. (talk) 15:27, August 3, 2011 (UTC)


For some reason the genjutsu Sasuke used against Shi keeps getting made reference to in this article. So, I draw attention to the fact that Sasuke is using a regular Sharingan. Plz stop adding it. ~SnapperTo 02:57, September 14, 2009 (UTC)

That's not a regular Sharingan. Just because you don't see his eyes take the Mangekyo pattern doesn't mean it's not his mangekyo genjutsu. Please recall that when Itachi used Tsukyomi against Kakashi for the first time, his eyes maintained the appearance of the regular Sharingan. —This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) on 10:20, 14 September 2009 (UTC).
Actually, yes it does mean that. A Mangekyō Sharingan technique requires the Mangekyō Sharingan to be activated.
When Itachi used Tsukuyomi against Kakashi, you didn't see his eyes at all. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 12:31, September 14, 2009 (UTC)
How could a mere regular sharingan genjutsu cause the victim paralysis and him pain in his eye? The sharingan we saw was just part of the illusion; he was still sitting on top of the pillar/wall. It looks like he deactivated his mangekyo after the genjutsu.Wreiad (talk) 16:23, September 14, 2009 (UTC)
Or he didn't use it, and he's quite skilled at Genjutsu....u'r forgetting, the Sharingan has some powerfull genjutsu on its own...--AlienGamer--Talk (contribs)-- 16:42, September 14, 2009 (UTC)
The pain is evidently in his left eye, whereas his Mangekyo genjutsu are cast with his right eye. It can't be both. ~SnapperTo 23:32, September 14, 2009 (UTC)

I believe in the beginning Kishimoto did not intend for the Mangekyo Sharingan to change the user's pupils after normal Sharingan was activated. Only after the 3 year jump do we see the new pupils, which is why you may not see it in the manga/anime when Itachi returns to Konoha.

Mangekyou "Kaleidoscope" Sharingan :-O

I think the word kaleidoscope is unnecessary in the description of Sasuke's mangekyou because well, mangekyou means kaleidoscope in jap from what I know :) Therefore I will delete the word. If it is not ok, I will write it back. - MadaraU (talk) 18:33, October 9, 2009 (UTC)

This could possibly explain why each eye has a different design for each known user, in my eyes anyway. Each design is esentially different, and thus may also be why each one seems to have a different 'power'. (talk) 00:38, December 5, 2010 (UTC)TiannaMVA@Fanfiction.Net

my edit

I do want to apologize for my edit. the computer I am on only sees two of the images for the mangekyos. i tried to insert another image, thinking that it may have been an error, but that didn't work so i changed it back. I hope i didn't mess it up for others. ^^ --Shaddow 14:46, October 21, 2009 (UTC)


Shouldn't this page have the sharingan icon because the Mangekyo originated from the sharingan. I would do it my self but don't know how.--Nintendo-Fan (talk) 00:40, October 28, 2009 (UTC)Nintendo-Fan

Mangekyou ten tails eye?

In the spoiler of naruto chapter 467 it is said that the ten tails one eye is mangekyou? Cooltamerboy (talk) 12:25, October 30, 2009 (UTC).

Yes, in one of the spoilers for chapter 467, the spoiler provider described the Ten-Tails' eye as a Mangekyō Sharingan. Is there a point to this question? --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 18:15, October 30, 2009 (UTC)
Then shoudn't it be added in the mangekyou variations? Cooltamerboy (talk) 12:30, November 4, 2009 (UTC).
No, because a spoiler provider saying it's a Mangekyō Sharingan doesn't actually make it a Mangekyō Sharingan. The fact that nothing in the actual manga pointed to it being a Mangekyō Sharingan should have tipped you off on that. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 13:59, November 4, 2009 (UTC)

Obtaining the Mangekyo

Just a question that i have been thinking about. it says here that you actually have to feel that someone has died to obtain the Mangekyou Sharingan. does that mean that they actually have to die? like if you see them appear to die but they dont actually can the shock of just believing that they are dead grant it?Husher D316 (talk) 06:11, November 11, 2009 (UTC)

don't you think it is better to put madara's mangekyo icon since he was the origin and the first person to obtain it(excluding izuna)?

also the shape of it is much much better than itachi's (no offense to his fans).

mangekyo icon

sorry to mention this again nut no one didn't even look at my post don't you think it is better to put madara's mangekyo icon since he was the origin and the first person to obtain it(excluding izuna)?

Itachi's is the first to be seen in the series, so we go with that. ~SnapperTo 19:29, November 24, 2009 (UTC)

does kakashi go blind from using mangekyo

Im confused does kakashi go blind when he uses Kamui and if de does wont he stay blind since he has no siblings--TheBlueBlur (talk) 22:46, December 8, 2009 (UTC)

Kakashi is a unique case as not only is he not an Uchiha, he had no blood relations to the Uchiha who gave him the eye. We have no idea what effects the Mangekyo has on him, other than probably more chakra being used due to no Uchiha blood in him, but I am guessing since that it is not his original eye, the Sharingan won't go blind on him due to it being in a new host. Even if it were to have any blinding effects, it would probably only be in his Sharingan eye, not his other eye. Point is, we have no idea, but there has been no sign of blindness as Kakashi has used the Mangekyo several times. --Juubi no Ryuu (talk) 21:44, December 5, 2009 (UTC)

He stated he knew that using the mangekyo made itachi blind, and inferred that he himself had the same problem. Simant (talk) 21:50, December 5, 2009 (UTC)

When was that? --TheBlueBlur (talk) 22:46, December 8, 2009 (UTC)

during kakashi and itachi's only conversation in part II. Simant (talk) 23:03, December 8, 2009 (UTC)
It's implied at best that he suffers blindness, and that is probably only in his Sharingan eye. --Juubi no Ryuu (talk) 04:49, December 19, 2009 (UTC)

"... gives the user access to powerful and forbidden techniques," yet none of the Mangekyō sharingan's techniques are listed as kinjutsu... Simant (talk) 00:05, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

Which of the Magekyo techniques r labeled forbidden. Only Uchiha who have managed to attain Mangekyo can label those techs forbidden. Hence only Madar, Izuna, Sasuke and Itachi can. And last I checked None of them have said they r forbidden. Powerful and dangerous to everyone including the user yes, but not forbidden. Minato(Talk) 00:58, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

Wasn't the mangekyo itself a forbidden technique? ~NOTASTAFF Daniel Friesen (DanTMan, Nadir Seen Fire) (talk) Dec 15, 2009 @ 18:53 (UTC)

obtaining Eternal Mangekyo?

Do the pair of Sharingan that are stolen have to be Mangekyo? Because if so, back when it was still assumed that Itachi was evil, it would've made no sense for him to steal Sasuke's eyes because, as he pointed out numerous times, he hadn't obtained the Mangekyo--Twilitlink (talk) 23:53, January 13, 2010 (UTC).

It hasn't been stated before that both siblings must have their Mangekyo Sharingan activated to create the eternal Mangekyo, so we can't be certain. But in the example you gave, it was more of a bluff. Sasuke didn't know that both eyes had to be activated and Itachi had no intention of actually taking his eyes, so he used this information as a bluff so that Sasuke would fear and kill him. Consider it a "fail-safe" for Itachi's plan of restoring the Uchiha clan's honour. Gojinn (talk) 14:33, March 22, 2010 (UTC)

On the subject of Eternal Mangekyō, has it been explicitly stated that the eyes taken from someone else after you go blind HAVE to be from a sibling? The overview in the article states that "Only by taking and transplanting the eyes of a sibling can the vision be restored, a process that results in the creation of the Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan." Because it'll suck if Kakashi loses his greatest weapon.ZPRN (talk) 15:41, October 14, 2010 (UTC)

Mangekyo causing eyes to bleed

Have we not seen enough proof that it is not the Mangekyo eyes themselves that cause the user's eyes to bleed, but the actual technique they are using? Has anybody's eye ever started bleeding after using Tsukuyomi? Even Susano'o doesn't always seem to cause the user's eyes to bleed. Let alone kakashi's version... -- (talk) 02:06, January 22, 2010 (UTC)HerecomesthePain

Acually, amaterasu is the only MS tech that causes the eyes to bleed ( perhaps because of the intense heat). Sansunoo creates strain on BOTH eyes. It's like trying to carry a 100 pound weight on one hand, rather the carrying 50 pounds on each hand. in a episode madara said that it will still weaken you


throughout the manga and anime, there have been several unnamed genjutsu used by the mangekyou sharingan. most if not all of them have been by sasuke. i think that a mangekyou sharingan user can use a strong genjutsu using the mangekyou. is that right or just pure speculation? -- (talk) 00:34, January 28, 2010 (UTC)

Hard to say, really. Even before acquiring the Mangekyou, Sasuke seemed to be quite capable of casting random Genjutsu under various circumstances. His battle with Deidara was particularly indicative of this ability; if you'll recall, pretty much everything the poor artist did was invalidated by the power of the retcon Sharingan. My guess is that the base Sharingan in its fully-developed state grants the power to influence targets in any number of subtle ways (i.e. hypnotic suggestion, mental sedation, etc.), and the Mangekyou cranks that ability up a few notches.


All the Mangekyo need to be changed to Mangekyou for correctness. NarutoFanDude (talk) 23:21, February 14, 2010 (UTC)

No it doesn't. We use the macrons, so Mangekyō is correct. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 23:09, February 14, 2010 (UTC)

Doesn't matter, you'd still need to change it to Mangekyōu and THEN it will be correct. NarutoFanDude (talk) 23:21, February 14, 2010 (UTC)

The "ō" stands for "ou" and "oo", it is correct. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 23:24, February 14, 2010 (UTC)

So basically you're saying that an elongated O sound makes it okay to misspell a word? NarutoFanDude (talk) 23:26, February 14, 2010 (UTC)

It's not misspelled. Ask ShounenSuki and he'll tell you. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 23:32, February 14, 2010 (UTC)

Your inability to understand the conversion from Japanese to English amuses me. Anyway, Mangekyōu, as you believe it should be spelled would then turn the word to Mangekyouu. Which is wrong. Basically this entire thing is based around you not understanding Hepburn Romanization.--TheUltimate3 (talk) 23:36, February 14, 2010 (UTC)

It's just an elongated o sound. It doesn't make it oo, or ou. It just elongates the sound.

Long vowels

In traditional and revised Hepburn:

  • The long vowels o and u are indicated by a macron—e.g., long o is written ō.

Taken from wikipedia. Using a macron AND putting the u on the end like it rightfully should be would not change ANYTHING. It would NOT make it Mangekyouu because the macron does not make it both o AND u, it simply states that when pronouncing it, you need to use an elongated sound.

NarutoFanDude (talk) 23:43, February 14, 2010 (UTC)

/sigh. The "u" you see at the end however, DOES NOT ACTUALLY EXIST IN THE WORD. The word you see is Mangekyou correct? Well following Revised Hepburn, it is now spelled Mangekyō. What you have been seeing is a simple misspelling of the word.--TheUltimate3 (talk) 23:52, February 14, 2010 (UTC)

Show me proof that the word is not mangekyou, and not just because you say it isn't. Revised hepburn ONLY elongates the sound. the ō would NOT replace the o and the u in mangekyou. While it is a substitute for o and u, because an elongated o makes the same SOUND the word could still be mangekyōu and there would be no ACTUAL difference because ō is simply an elongated SOUND, it does not represent both the o and the u in mangekyou when spelled. And honestly, you don't have to keep arguing with me, my opinions are my own and yours are your own. I accept that. NarutoFanDude (talk) 00:04, February 15, 2010 (UTC)

/sigh So be it. It stays the way it is. This discussion is over.--TheUltimate3 (talk) 00:08, February 15, 2010 (UTC)

I thought these were open discussions, I'd love to know what other peoples opinions are. NarutoFanDude (talk) 00:13, February 15, 2010 (UTC)

NarutoFanDude, this is not a matter of opinion. you are simply incorrect.
The -ou combination at the end of Mangekyou is a direct romanisation of the Japanese kana combination -おう. this combination represents an elongated o. In the Hepburn romanisation system, this elongation is represented with a macron. So -ou and represent the exact same sound. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 00:15, February 15, 2010 (UTC)
Oh thank the titans. Took you long enough my friend.--TheUltimate3 (talk) 00:17, February 15, 2010 (UTC)

I understand it's the same SOUND, when pronounced. But that doesn't make it incorrect to write it as mangekyōu and that is all I'm saying. My thoughts are not going to change, no matter how much you dislike them, you don't have to continue to argue your point. I understand your point. You simply aren't understanding mine. really you could at the very least accept other views than yours.. NarutoFanDude (talk) 00:19, February 15, 2010 (UTC)

No, you aren't understanding things. Writing Mangekyōu is incorrect. The u is an indicator that the o is lengthened. The macron takes over that over that function. Thus keeping the u in there indicates that it should be seen as a separate letter, pronounced separately and making it a completely different, non-existent word. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 00:25, February 15, 2010 (UTC)

I agree. The Mangek makes more sense than "you" or "yōu". Although spelling it either way would still be understandable. --Otacon1514 (talk) 06:03, June 24, 2010 (UTC)

Sasuke's Genjutsu

We should hold off on calling Sasuke's genjutsu Tsukuyomi for now. Danzō does not call Sasuke's genjutsu Tsukuyomi in chapter 478; instead, he simply compares "Sasuke's genjutsu" to Tsukuyomi, unfavorably. Until it's called Tsukuyomi—or manipulates the perception of time—it's probably best to hold off saying he has Tsukuyomi. The manga certainly has held off on saying it. Bvdan (talk) 05:41, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Varying Levels of Blindness.

It seems when people with the Mangekyo Sharingan use higher levels of its jutsu, they get blind faster. Like when Itachi and Sasuke both used Tsukuyomi, they did appear exhausted but they didn't seem to go blind that fast but when they used Amaterasu and Susanoo more often, they started going blind faster and also experienced both eye bleeding and coughing up blood. Thats my opnion, hell Itachi's right eye during his fight with Sasuke was near blind after using Amaterasu and after Sasuke used Amaterasu on Killer Bee, he saw he was already going blind. BlackGhost91 (talk) 13:53, March 26, 2010 (UTC)

Yes certain tech cause more blindness like:

Tysukiomi < Amaterasu < Sansunoo

Sunsanoo cuases most blindness while tysukiomi causes least.


sorry this is a pointless thing to ask but i am wondering. how did you make the mangekyo designs on here? because they are obviously not taken from the anime they were designed on a computer and then put on here. so how did you do that? because i wanted to make my own and i wanted it to look better than drawing it on paper. again sorry for this pointless question but id still like an answer please :) (talk) 23:44, March 27, 2010 (UTC) P.S. this is StormNinja12 but i forgot to log in lol

If you look at first, sasuke ecplises in his mangekou were thin at the ends. Over the times he used it they got fatter and fatter until it was almost like a star. I think overuse causes it to lose it's "grip" and loosen out a little. Execpt itachis got "tighter" until it looked like a shuriken. It has to do with blindness.Rockystar35 (talk) 18:27, June 10, 2010 (UTC)

This is quite possible. But there is no good comparison to Sasuke. Madara was evil from the start and Itachi showed no signs of corruption. Also, Sasuke has been corrupted by the path he walks. During his life he has been focused on one thing, Vengeance. Without the feeling of purpose Sasuke might feel lost.

If Sasuke does obtain the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan, will it still appear as a combo of his Mangekyou and Itachi's Mangekyou like Madara even though Sasuke's has a black background and Itachi's had the opposite?

Kakashi's Mangekyō

Is it possible that because Kakashi's sharingan wasn't his to begin with he isn't going blind from it, sort of like a variation of the eternal Mangekyō?

The effects it has on him is unknown. But because his technique is used primarily as a last resort the effects of blindness might take longer to appear. --Cerez365 (talk) 13:29, August 25, 2010 (UTC)

Do you think we should add onto this about how Kakashi gained his Mangekyo is still unknown? Instead of just "He gained it over the timeskip" ? Even if it is mentioned on Kakashis own personal page? As it's listed how everyone else got theirs. SusanooUnleashed (talk) 05:03, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

And I meant on the Mangekyo Sharingan page. SusanooUnleashed (talk) 05:05, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

Didn't Kakashi get the eye transferred to him by Rin before Obito died? It did say on the Mangekyou that you have to feel your 'friend's' death from your perspective. This could mean that, once Kakashi got the eye and saw Obito die that it activated the Mangekyou, as he still saw his friend die before his eyes, or at least considered him dead, regardless if he was an Uchiha or not. That's my theory on how he got it anyway. (talk) 19:43, January 29, 2011 (UTC)

First, when Obito gave kakashi the Sharingan, the third tomoe wasn't even activated (if I remember correctly), let alone the Mangekyō. Second, it was clearly shown that he activated Mangekyō during the timeskip. ~ Fmakck - Talk - Contributions 19:56, January 29, 2011 (UTC)

Just wanted to add to this: In the most recent episode of Naruto Shippuden, apparently Kakashi's Mangekyo has gone the way of Sasuke's; the colors are now inverted: His pinwheel is red while the rest of his eye is the standard gray/black.

What's stopping brothers with MS from trading eyes, for two EMS? If Madra's brother was so loyal as to "willingly" give him his eyes, wouldn't a trade be better? Is there something I'm missing about the transplant or is this just unknown? Arrancar79 (talk) 14:12, September 12, 2010 (UTC)

You have to integrate the other person's eyes into your own that's how comes they change appearance and has elements of each MS. Think of it with this in mind [2] unless that demon has 4 eyes you'll go blind. So no tradesies --Cerez365 (talk) 14:18, September 12, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, I was wondering about this fact myself for quite sometime. Should we put this info into the page, like in the trivia, so people wouldn't question about this? Yatanogarasu 23:27, September 12, 2010 (UTC)

Think of it like this, how could you get the Mangekyou Sharingan in the first place without losing someone close to you, in most cases it is your brother or close friend. So usually there is not another brother LIVING to trade with. And it is also very unlikely for both brothers to possess the Mangekyou Sharingan at the same time as well.

why don't they trade for 1 eye..? i mean like, "hey, let's have each of us one EMS.. you can take my right eye to implant to your right, and then i take your left eye to implant to my left. how..?" <-- isn't this a fair trade..? --Arvell (talk) 03:34, May 22, 2011 (UTC)
Maybe it doesn't work unless you take both eyes. —ShounenSuki (talk | contribs | translations) 20:01, May 22, 2011 (UTC)

The control of the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox

I think that the ability to control the nine-tailed demon fox should be written in the introduction of the article and not under the voice of the Mangekyou of Madara Uchiha, because from the words of Sasuke and Itachi of the Chapter 385 / is clear that whoever wakes the Mangekyou has this capacity (it's not a prerogative of Madara).--JK88 (talk) 10:26, September 24, 2010 (UTC)

Sharingan Tomoe

If someone had two tomoe Sharingan, could they still acquire the MS?

No...two tomoe is a sign that the sharingan is not yet fully matured.--Cerez365 23:23, October 29, 2010 (UTC)

Switching between normal Sharingan and Mangekyō

Shouldn't it be noted that Kakashi has shown the ability to switch between normal Sharingan and his Mangekyō?ZPRN (talk) 23:20, December 16, 2010 (UTC)?

Why? Every Mangekyō wielder can do that. —ShounenSuki (talk | contribs | translations) 23:22, December 16, 2010 (UTC)
Oh lol. Just saying, the article doesn't mention it.ZPRN (talk) 23:25, December 16, 2010 (UTC)

Sasuke's Eternal Mangekyō

In which chapter/volume does Sasuke have Itachi's eyes transplanted into himself?ZPRN (talk) 20:41, December 26, 2010 (UTC)

He asks for them in chapter 487 page 7, and is seen after the transplant in chapter 488 page 17. Jacce | Talk | Contributions 20:46, December 26, 2010 (UTC)

Okay, thanks.ZPRN (talk) 20:48, December 26, 2010 (UTC)

Does Madara have the ability to negate a Mangekyou Sharingan?

I went to edit Madara's page, and when I put that Madara can negate Sharingan abilities, it was taken down... Does anyone have ideas as to why? —This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) .

Because that has never been confirmed. There could be many other reasons why he survived Amaterasu or why Kamui wouldn't work against him. It's speculative to say he can negate Sharingan abilities. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 00:17, January 30, 2011 (UTC)

Sharingan powers

do you still get the same powers as sharingan when you are using the mangeyko sharingan? —This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) .

Obviously. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 20:39, May 16, 2011 (UTC)

that actually is pretty obvious because the mangeykyo sharingan has all the abilities of a normal sharingan but to a more advanced level and also the mangekyo sharingan has its own unique abilities for each user. --Drago1274 22:56, May 16, 2011 (UTC)

Small Mangekyo Sharingan

I saw this picture on the web and was confused about the Mangekyo on the left in the middle row. It says its Sasuke's "Small Mangekyo" and was used during his fight with Naruto (I'm assuming the Valley of the End fight)I however never remember him using anything like this and as far as I'm concerned he never used Mangekyo until he fought Killer Bee.

Does anyone know about this image or even where it comes from?

Thunderbender18 (talk) 06:57, May 18, 2011 (UTC)

No, that's a fanart I'm sure --_-_-=NejiLoverr26 (Talk-Contribs.-Links) Konohagakure Symbol 07:01, May 18, 2011 (UTC)

Okay thank you I was just wondering Thunderbender18 (talk) 08:22, May 18, 2011 (UTC)


Itachi used Amaterasu twice in the Sasuke fight.

The whole, "Itachi can only use three MS techniques" is flat out wrong. It doesn't help that he used other jutsu besides that. He used Tsukuyomi, Amaterasu twice, Susanoo, a crow clone, a couple genjutsu, and 2 Katons (which are have variable chakra input). Likely, the disparity is that Tsukuyomi takes more chakra than Amaterasu, even though Amaterasu takes a significant. Susanoo itself takes chakra, but likely takes the least of the three since it drains the life of the user as well.

It is also unclear whether Susanoo killed him or his disease.

This article makes several presumptuous claims that are almost guaranteed to be wrong.—This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) .

But from what we know, at least in Itachi's case, it grants them three abilities, well the article says "at least". As for the rest I don't understand what his crow clones and 2 katons have to do with his Mangekyo O.o? I think we're pretty sure he died from his illness. I really don't see the presumptions you're talking about, so post quotations.--Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 17:50, May 26, 2011 (UTC)
He's referring to the line, "[Itachi] could only use [the Mangekyō Sharingan] three times per day before becoming exhausted to the point where he couldn't even use his normal Sharingan."
I would argue that he should only use it three times a day. However, since he was dead-set on being dead in his fight with Sasuke, he ignored his limitations and used the Mangekyō Sharingan more than three times in addition to other jutsu. ~SnapperTo 17:57, May 26, 2011 (UTC)
So we should add that bit for clarification oui?--Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 18:01, May 26, 2011 (UTC)


All I know is that the Eternal Mangekyo can only be obtained from taking a sibling's eyes right? does their sibling have to have Mangekyo too? Also, can the Mangekyo not be used anymore when blind, because the manga never really specified on that. Lastly, if the eternal mangekyo us gained by taking the other siblings, then why didn't they, well, share, trading each other's eyes, why didn't Madara's brother just take madara's useless eyes? —This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) .

Yes, you must obtain a siblings eyes, from what we know. Because these are the only cases we've seen, it's unclear if you can use a non-siblings MS to gain an EMS. If blinded, the eye goes blind for good. Lastly, the user doesn't exchange eyes, but takes the eyes and "fuses" them together to create a new pair of eyes. SusanooUnleashed (talk) 07:12, May 31, 2011 (UTC)

where exactly did it say that you fuse the MS from your siblings—This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) .

When Itachi describes the story of the Mangekyō, the statue which appears behind him and behind Madara, with four eye sockets, implies the user simply takes the eyes, meaning the user doesn't relinquish the former eyes. Going by that, the eyes either fuse, or the previous eyes are discarded. Since that's unlikely, and since Itachi's eyes were already deteriorated by the time Sasuke decided to transplant them, it's likely that they somehow fuse, restoring its sight.
