Can Sasuke use Susanoo/Tsukuyomi

There is another mistranslation going round and hopefully I can correct it here. According to some people, Madara tells Sasuke that Itachi planted all his eye techniques in him. This has been mistranslated.

In chapter 397, on page 11, Madara tells Sasuke: 「最後…お前のために己の瞳力をお前の中へ注ぎ込んだのだ」 ("Saigo... Omae no tame ni onore no dōryoku wo omae no naka he sosogi konda no da"). Translated to English, this would become: "At last... For your sake he injected his own eye power inside you". He never says "all eye powers," which means it's still unknown whether or not Sasuke can actually use any of Itachi's other jutsu, besides Amaterasu. In fact, it's also unknown if that Amaterasu was anything more then a one-time thing.

Just for reference, if Madara had said "all eye powers," he would have used 「全ての瞳力」 ("subete no dōryoku").--ShounenSuki 19:05, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

But by that same token, "injected his own eye power" could presumably add Tsukuyomi and Susano'o. Which is why both of those techniques have Sasuke labled as (Presumably).--TheUltimate3 19:09, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
True, it's about 50/50 in my opinion. However, I don't think we should add such speculation to the article. Sasuke never used Tsukuyomi and Susanoo, there is no clear evidence he can use those techniques, so we shouldn't say he can. Even if we add presumably, since it's just as presumable that he can't use them. --ShounenSuki 19:38, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
To revive this in regards to the page's protection, Sasuke should not be listed as a user, presumed or otherwise. The translation suggesting he can use it is outdated, open to interpretation, and Sasuke himself has yet to use anything other than Amaterasu. To that end, a wiki should present information that is accurate, not information that might be. ~SnapperTo 21:06, 11 February 2009 (UTC)
I agree with SnapperTo. In retrospect, especially considering the information gained from the third databook, it's obvious Madara referred only to the Amaterasu Itachi sealed into Sasuke's Sharingan with his Transcription Seal: Amaterasu. There is no way to tell if Sasuke can use Tsukuyomi or Susanoo until we've seen him use it. We can't just assume he'll be able to use them just because Itachi could. --ShounenSuki 21:31, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

Hey guys just for the record I know those comments you guys posted were like 1 or 2 years ago but Sasuke already used Tsukuyomi and Susano'o.But his Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan is still yet to be seen, even in 2010.It'll probably make it's debut in 2011.Amaterasu789 (talk) 21:25, October 29, 2010 (UTC)

Third databook

I was able to find a scan of Susanoo's article in the third databook (thanks to whoever uploaded it). If you want to see it, go here. I'll add some of the details. --ShounenSuki 20:02, 5 September 2008 (UTC)


wouldn't this be classified as both a ninjutsu and genjutsu?

Its a Kekkai Genkai...Please sign u'r comments..AlienGamer | Talk 20:12, 26 May 2009 (UTC)
Why would it be classified as Genjutsu?Kracel (talk) 21:15, December 30, 2009 (UTC)


shouldn't we put Madara as a user, because Itachi said that Madar could use all four Mangekyo techniques?

No becouse it was never shown if it is shown we will put it.Kyuubinaruto123 (talk) 20:24, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Itachi said Madara's flawless mangekyo sharingan gave birth to a new eye technique, which doesn't necessarily mean a 4th jutsu.Wreiad (talk) 22:39, October 5, 2009 (UTC)

madara himself also stated that for a sharingan user to activate the susanoo is an extremely rare ocasion. from what we know and seen madara may have the ability to use the tsukuyomi. he says that when he's explaining the moon's eye plan to the kages. that he was going to use the 10 tails and magnify the power of his eyes and cast a tsukuyomi. but to use susanoo he also requires amaterasu. he has not made any statementes of having it or susanoo. so i'd say he has tsukuyomi and a super developed version of kamui.—This unsigned comment was made by Darksusanoo (talkcontribs) .

Yata no Kagami

A spiritual shield that does not possess a physical form. It has all the "Seishitsu Henka" (Element modifying ability) capabilities and can nullify all jutsu by changing its own elemental nature accordingly.


Yata no Kagami (Mirror of Yata) - An incorporeal shield. It possesses all the chakra qualities (elements) and is able to render any attack vain by changing its own quality accordingly

Is that true? I mean, is it confirm in the Databook 3 Page 274-275?

Yes it's been confirmed; you can read Shounensuki's translations. Wreiad (talk) 04:58, October 3, 2009 (UTC)

Double Sharingan?

I know Sasuke has the Double sharingan and he said that only those who can control the double sharingan can summon susanoo but why did Itachi have susanoo he didn't have a double sharingan. Kyuubinaruto123 (talk) 17:05, September 17, 2009 (UTC)

You misunderstand. Using Susanoo requires mastering the Mangekyo Sharingan one has in each eye. Itachi did that, and now so has Sasuke. ~SnapperTo 17:31, September 17, 2009 (UTC)
Oh ok that makes sense i was confused by that.Kyuubinaruto123 (talk) 17:34, September 17, 2009 (UTC)

Actually i can explain what Sauske meant. As stated many times, both Itachi and Sauske have Amaterasu in one eye and Tsukuyomi in the other eye. Logically, if a user focuses on only one of these techniques, he wouldn't be skilled in the other(Meaning he'd only be skilled in one of his eyes) However, once a user of the Mangekyo Sharingan masters both of these eye techniques, it means that he has mastered both of his eyes, making him able to use a third technique: Susanoo

Also, i studied it a bit more, and, Amaterasu is put down as a Ninjutsu, where Tsukuyomi is labeled a Genjutsu. Many times have i heard people refer to Susanoo as a Ninjutsu/Genjutsu. Where I'm getting at is that by mastering the Mangekyo's 2 eye's, one of ninjutsu and one of genjutsu, you unlock a third jutsu which is classified as Ninjutsu/Genjutsu. If you read my comment above, then this is all i have to say, so ya, this is what Sauske meant

Third Mystical weapon?

Uchiha Itachi had 2 of the three Mystical weapons (Mirror of Yata and Totsuka Blade) but I looked up the third and it is said to be a jeweled necklace made of a jade ston the brings out Amaterasu. Could this necklace be Naruto's Necklace?

Firstly, even the possible existence of a third "mystical weapon" is pure speculation at the moment. Secondly, if there was such an object, the necklace worn by the Sage of the Six Paths fits the description much more closely. Thirdly, if you look up all the "mystical weapons," or the Three Treasures as they are called in real life, you'll find that the Totsuka sword isn't one of them. They are the Yata Mirror, the Kusanagi Sword, and the Yasakani Jewel. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 19:36, September 21, 2009 (UTC)

Then what is sasuke's susanoo's new bow?

Sasuke's Susanoo

Are you sure Sasuke's Susanoo is using the legendary Totsuka no Tsurugi? Shouldn't the sword 'comes' out from a sake jar held by a third hand? I don't think Sasuke's Susanoo is using the legendary sword.

The jar may have been there, but out of focus. No one can say for sure at the moment.Wreiad (talk) 04:50, October 3, 2009 (UTC)

6 fingers on one hand

check here: ;it shows susanoo having 6 fingers on his left hand... and has 5 fingers on his right hand.. that's a bit weird -llVIU

I think so too. Sasuke haven't used it yet.So we'll see.Itachi could have transfered that Jutsu too

I don't think so. Why would he? His main concern at that point was to protect Sasuke from Madara, so he gave him Amaterasu. As for the 6 fingers, you're right. It's shown on the first page, and I doubt it's an artist's error. TomServo101 (talk) 14:34, September 29, 2009 (UTC)

what the hell are you talking about.. sasuke used susano it shows in the last chapters and sasuke says that it's susano and he has no reason to lie -llVIU
Thats his own Mangekyo..not Itachi's..--AlienGamer--Talk (contribs)-- 14:08, October 3, 2009 (UTC)

actually....... sasuke's susanoo has 6 fingers in all hands.—This unsigned comment was made by Darksusanoo (talkcontribs) .


Sasuke’s Susano is still inprefect; Raikage could snap a bone and Mizukage’s Boil Release could melt them.

I don't understand that reasoning based on what you use to back it up. Susanoo was not armored and also equipped with his shield, which is what makes it "invincible". Keep in mind that the kages where able to damage mere ribcages, not the same whole skeletal structure that withstood 4 attacks in chapter 464. That's not a good reason as to why it's "imperfect". The only real flaw of Susanoo would be the fact that it drains the user's lifeforce and has a significant impact on their physical abilities (Taijutsu etc).Wreiad (talk) 19:41, October 21, 2009 (UTC)

We know that his susanoo is not complete, but you are not correct, like he said, it was just ribs that he cracked, a mere part of susanoo not even close to its full power --Sauske-Blaze (talk) 02:07, October 26, 2009 (UTC)Sauske-Blaze

The only time Sasuke completed Susano'o was when he fought Kakashi for the first time in Shippuden. Even then at the time it was only complete for about 3 seconds.Amaterasu789 (talk) 21:32, October 29, 2010 (UTC)

Totsuka no Tsurugi

Wikipedia states that the sword Susanoo used was called Worochi no Ara-masa, and they have a good source for it. Though the Kojiki version does mention a "ten-grasp sabre". Why are there 2 different swords?

Many gods and objects have many, many different names. A different name doesn't imply a different object. Orochi-no-Aramasa (蛇の麁正, Rough Justice of the [Big] Snake), Karasabi-no-Tsurugi (韓鋤の剣, Sword that Ploughs Down the Foreigners), Ama-no-Hahakiri-no-Tsurugi (天蠅斫剣, Hevanely Fly-Cutting Sword); they are all just different names for the same object. Totsuka-no-Tsurugi is simply the most commenly used name. juts like how Amaterasu-Ōmikami can also be called Ōhirume-no-Muchi-no-Kami (大日孁貴神) or how the Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi can also be called the Ama-no-Murakumo-no-Tsurugi (天叢雲剣), the Tsumugari-no-Tachi (都牟刈の大刀), or the Yaegaki-no-Tsurugi (八重垣剣). --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 00:18, November 10, 2009 (UTC)

Life Energy

"To sustain Susanoo, the user must act as a medium for the spirit, allowing it to consume their life force energy. ", "Prolonged use will lead to the user's death." Ok then if life force energy is chakra, how is that any different from using/overusing any other jutsu? Simant (talk) 19:20, November 10, 2009 (UTC)

Sasuke's body isn't a medium for Chidori? ~SnapperTo 20:26, November 10, 2009 (UTC)
Well doesn't that assume that Susanoo is a summon or alive on its own, is it not the same kind of ninjutsu as Dead Demon Consuming Seal, that uses the death god, which is not a medium, but in fact the jutsu. Simant (talk) 20:42, November 10, 2009 (UTC)

I would not say that susanoo is a summon, at the end of manga chapter 391, itachi states that susanoo is the last weapon in 'his' arsenal key word being his. Summons are independent beings who, and have been shown, arent always corporative in helpin the summoner in a battle. I would say that susanoo is just a jutsu that only can be used with the sharingan, and not a summon

sry, this message and the one above are by me--> --Sauske-Blaze (talk) 03:01, November 14, 2009 (UTC)Sauske-Blaze

Susanoo is not a summon. When using a summon, a ninja will use his chakra in order to call upon creatures existing in the physical world. Once the creature has been summoned, the technique does not require any more of the ninja's chakra. Susanoo, as I understand it, is a technique where the ninja will call upon an dark spirit and allow that spirit to feed on his soul in exchange for the spirit's power. If the ninja only uses a partial susanoo, the spirit consumes less of his soul than if he uses a complete susanoo. Since a person cannot live without a soul, it is easy to see how prolonged or repeated use of such a technique would result in death, as it did for Itachi. Although it has yet to be confirmed, I suspect that tsukuyomi, amaterasu, and susanoo are all spiritual techniques that involve opening hell and allowing a portion of the soul to be consumed. Tsukuyomi allows the ninja to show their enemy a glimpse into the reality of hell via genjutsu. Amaterasu allows the ninja to pull hell's flames into this dimension via ninjutsu. Susanoo allows the ninja to temporarily bring an entity from hell into our dimension. In the case of mangekyo sharingan, the eyes are, quite literally, the windows to the soul. As seen in itachi's case, once the ninja's soul has been completely consumed the eyes turn completely blank and the user dies.


I think now we can be sure that Sasuke's Susanoo is a lesser version of itachi. Since he can only summon the skeletal structure of the spirit. Hope someone more eloquent could correct the article. Neji uchiha (talk) 00:40, December 4, 2009 (UTC)

Sauskes is not yet complete it clearly says that in the manga

sry, this and that last note are by ---> --Sauske-Blaze (talk) 01:32, December 4, 2009 (UTC)Sauske-Blaze

yes its true that the initial versions of sasuke's susanoo were weaker than itachi's. he only completed it in the recent chapter 484.(and its very similar to itachi's) (Darksusanoo (talk) 23:53, March 2, 2010 (UTC))

Totsuka Sword

since the totsuka sword is capable of sealing anything it pierces, is there a way to release the objects sealed by it or are the objects sealed forever sealed? -- (talk) 07:24, December 12, 2009 (UTC)

Zetsu has stated that the victim inside of totsuka sword is sealed in permanent genjutsu. Ttogafer (talk) 12:03, December 12, 2009 (UTC)


does the yata shield change a jutsu's element to make it more suitable for defending against or wat because i find the shield's ability kind of cloudy. -- (talk) 05:10, December 16, 2009 (UTC)

It changes its own nature to match the incoming technique's. In other words, if it had to defend against a Fire Release, it would change its own nature to Water. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 08:04, December 16, 2009 (UTC)

Ugh, Sasuke doesn't use the Ribcage version anymore and upgraded it to the Dark Susano'o thing.

Sasuke's Susanoo and Itachi's Susanoo

I think that sasuke's susanoo is dark blue verry dark blue and its deferent from itachi's susanoo i think that is because of the sharingan you know that sasuke's MS is Black Red not like the other that are Red Black that might be the reason for the deferent colors of the susanoos --Petar93 (talk) 21:39, January 14, 2010 (UTC)

not quite. each MS shape is unique to the user. that does not afect the jutsu. what does make sasuke's susanoo diferent is that it's linked to sasuke's dark chakra and emotions.—This unsigned comment was made by Darksusanoo (talkcontribs) .

the ARROW or the TOTSUKA sword?

is the arrow that sasuke uses with his susanoo the same totsuka sword or is it another thing?if it is the same blade then state it in the article. -- (talk) 11:07, January 21, 2010 (UTC)

Can't tell; I don't think it's ever hit Danzō, so if it's effect is the same, we have no way of knowing. Personally, I think not. TomServo101 11:12, January 21, 2010 (UTC)

The arrow seems to be a different weapon altogether. Any sword used by Susanoo was evident in it's left hand.Wreiad (talk) 12:56, January 21, 2010 (UTC)

Parent Jutsu

Since when was it stated that Susanoo was derived from Amaterasu and Tsukuyomi? All that is known is that one must awaken them before the can awaken Susanoo. It isn't really a combination of the two as Tsukuyomi requires a huge amount of chakra for the genjutsu to last temporarily while the genjutsu that the Totsuka sword gives Susanoo is permanent and doesn't require any chakra other than that sustaining Susanoo to use it and it's effects don't stop when Susanoo is out of use. And Amaterasu is black fire while Susanoo's fiery aura is red and the fact that the only time it burned anything that touched it was when Susanoo was combined with Amaterasu. As far as what has been stated Susanoo is it's own technique that wasn't derived from another, except for Mangekyo that is required to use it.WolfMaster (talk) 21:07, January 23, 2010 (UTC)

Databook states that the user of Susanoo must have already used Amaterasu and Tsukuyomi.--TheUltimate3 (talk) 23:45, January 23, 2010 (UTC)

That doesn't exactly mean that they are the parent jutsu it just means that they must be usable before Susanoo can be used. This seems more like a matter of skill than derivation, as both Amaterasu and Tsukyomi both require considerable skill to both use and master. Thus this increases the skill of the ninja who has used and mastered them enough to where they have enough skill to do this technique as it is more taxing on the users chakra and body.WolfMaster (talk) 23:55, January 23, 2010 (UTC)

They are a requirement. Read the databook and Sasuke's remark to Gaara during the Kage summit. Susanoo cannot be invoked without awakening the other 2 techniques. Wreiad (talk) 03:52, January 24, 2010 (UTC)

Unique to User?

Susanoo could possibly be different for each user, much like how each person's Mangekyou Sharingan differs in design. Do we want to add a note in the article stating that this could explain the difference in Itachi's and Sasuke's versions? The only problem I can see is that we wouldn't be able to confirm this untill another user, e.g. Madara, uses Susanoo. Lorddraknor9 (talk) 02:18, January 26, 2010 (UTC)

There's no Sasuke's and Itachi's own version, just one susanoo in different levels, Itachi's was just the most development one we saw in the series.-- (talk) 03:53, February 25, 2010 (UTC)

actually since Sasuke's uses a bow and has horns and jacket teets, while Itachi's uses the totsuka and Yata no Kagami i would and has no horns and flat teeths i would say they are different. --Gojita (talk) 16:53, February 25, 2010 (UTC)Gojita

Sasuke's already showed a Sword at the Kage Summit and the shield against Danzou. If we assume that Sasuke's regular MS Genjutsu is Tsukuyomi without any proof or anyone stating it in the manga other than the Databook hinting it, I see no reason why it shouldn't be the same for these.

Appearance is barely a difference for a different sections, a mention should be enough.--TekkenStorm (talk) 20:57, February 25, 2010 (UTC)

Why Hasn't Anyone Put The Recent Pic Of Sasuke's Armored Susanoo?

Why Hasn't Anyone Put The Recent Pic Of Sasuke's Armored Susanoo? It is obviously the final version of Sasuke's Susanoo so I don't know why they are using the third form as his completed version. BlackGhost91 (talk) 14:40, March 2, 2010 (UTC)

Because as far as it was seen, it looks almost exactly like Itachi's final Susanoo. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 15:12, March 2, 2010 (UTC)
And because of that, a picture of the "third form" is more useful since it's not visible as part of the "complete form". ~SnapperTo 23:06, March 2, 2010 (UTC)

so? it does look like Itachi's Susanoo but it has a darker appearance, more jagged teeth and a dark orb on its right hand like it says in the article. that is obviously the complete version since Itachi's did have a third form that was similiar to Sasuke's though different in appearance. It still doesn't make any sense to me to be using the third form. I could put in a fourth form myself but I don't know how to and even if I did, you guys would probably delate it so it would be pointless. Just because it was seen briefly doesn't mean it isn't it final form, it says that Susanoo feeds on Sasuke's anger to grow stronger right? That happened at least 2 times and the second time, it evolved so it bascially means that it is its final form. and besides it would be helpful to compare the two armored forms instead of having a third form for Sasuke with a bow and arrow. BlackGhost91 (talk) 14:34, March 4, 2010 (UTC)

Part of me thinks it would be easier just to use Itachi's Susanoo from the anime and scrap Sasuke's Susanoo image from the infobox all together. All this "Sasuke's Susanoo can evolve" crap is just erupting into one large, unnecessary war over a picture, that has been seen only once.--TheUltimate3 (talk) 16:12, March 4, 2010 (UTC)
I agree with this. Having one image, at least until we can see the 'absolute' final, of Sasuke's in the anime would be better. ¥ Super Novice Talk 2 Me ¥ 16:34, March 4, 2010 (UTC)
Like I said, there's no picture of the "internal", arrow-shooting portion of Susanoo, which is apparently present when Itachi uses it too. I will agree that the ever-evolving Mangekyo is getting annoying. ~SnapperTo 17:40, March 4, 2010 (UTC)

well do what you guys want, I honestly don't care no-more lol. BlackGhost91 (talk) 14:28, March 5, 2010 (UTC)

could you guys stop bickering and just put the pic? when there's a better one change it. simple. besides a lot of people want to see it so just put it up. (Darksusanoo (talk) 01:19, March 6, 2010 (UTC))

Can someone please just put up the new pic of sasuke's susanoo? (Darksusanoo (talk) 23:42, March 8, 2010 (UTC))

And...what exactly is stopping you from doing it yourself. Because if I touch the article, I'm dropping Sasuke's Susanoo all together.--TheUltimate3 (talk) 00:14, March 9, 2010 (UTC)
There is a reason that we don't put a separate picture of every user using a jutsu. They all look alike, so if a jutsu has multiple stages, we put multiple pics, its really very simple. So this doesn't need another picture of the same thing. Simant (talk) 03:34, March 9, 2010 (UTC)

I've just noticed that, unlike the white Itachi's Susanoo in the scanlations/etc. , the Susanoo in the graphic novel is colored more or less gray. Now, does it mean anything, or did Kishimoto just change his mind about it? (talk) 18:31, April 1, 2010 (UTC)

it means that it a different color than itachi,probably blue or black --Linkdarkside (talk) 20:02, April 4, 2010 (UTC)----

we have to wait and see until the anime shows the color of his Susanoo, it might be dark blue, black or dark red. since the terms "cold" and "dark" are mostly assiociated with blue or black, i doubt it be dark red and besides it be too similiar to Itachi's Susanoo if it was colored red.

Kishimoto already gave Kakuzu a bunch of Gundam references in his jutsu names, and Raideen was produced by some of the same people. Prime32 (talk) 01:45, April 15, 2010 (UTC)

Sasuke's Susano'o Color

In Volume 51 Cover we get showed that Sasuke's Susano'o color is purplish-blue, we should add that.--TekkenStorm (talk) 00:32, April 24, 2010 (UTC)

Interpretation of Susanoo

I believe there are some things that should be changed and not taken literally, such as Susanoo being a 'spirit' and the way it 'eats away' the user's life. As far as I see it, the aspect in which it and the weapons are spiritual are that Susanoo is made up of chakra [Spiritual + physical energy] and it 'eats away' the user's 'life' by using up their chakra [0% chakra means death]. Compare the way the Cursed Seal drew out Sasuke's chakra and displayed his hidden variety to how Susanoo is made up of Sasuke's chakra. ALso compare the way Nagato regurgitated blood from using copious amounts of chakra to the way Sasuke had been doing it lately while using Susanoo. Otherwise, I don't see why we should mislead people with the literal translation, some of which is obvious hyperbole. Plenty of things in the databooks are hyperbole.

I'm waiting for people to give their opinion on this, since I find this interpretation to make the most sense. Wreiad (talk) 03:03, June 1, 2010 (UTC)

Around here, databook is one of the most reliable source of information. If it says something, something it is. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 22:04, June 2, 2010 (UTC)

Um, okay. What I want to know is why we were seeing Susano'o like stuff (chakra shape, genjutsu, etc.) before Sasuke even used this. Perhaps he practiced with this beforehand, like when he got the hawk? Thomas Finlayson (talk) 22:26, June 2, 2010 (UTC)

Easter egg maybe? I don't know. And when did Sasuke was implied to get a hawk before we saw him summon one? And don't tell me it was hinted in the opening page of chapter three, cause there's no way Kishimoto planned that far ahead. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 23:40, June 2, 2010 (UTC)

What is Susanoo?

Every technique in the Naruto series is cataloged into one of the four types of jutsu or a Kekkei Genkai. What is Susanoo exactly?

Is it classified as Ninjutsu? Can it be described as a Genjutsu? I doubt this. But is it a Taijutsu Or does it correlate to that of a Kuchiyose no jutsu (summoning)?--Otacon1514 (talk) 02:28, June 24, 2010 (UTC)

The third data book only classifies it as a ninjutsu and a kekkei genkai. ~SnapperTo 19:11, December 31, 2009 (UTC)
Could it be a spiritual summoning like Demonic Haunts Disorder but more advanced? Thomas Finlayson (talk) 19:46, June 24, 2010 (UTC)

Well if you think about it, it could technially be a summon. The users 2 Manngekyou are the contract, and Susanoo's drain of the users' life force is blood offering. But yeah the databook is what should be followed, not my speculation :P Skitts (talk) 01:40, July 5, 2010 (UTC)

Yata's Mirror

It is said to block any Ninjutsu by changing to the attacks opposing nature, rendering the user "invincible", but if it went up against, say, Rasengan which posseses no inherent chakra nature, would that not make that statement false? Skitts (talk) 20:57, July 4, 2010 (UTC)

I think it would simply counter it by becoming stronger than the Rasengan. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 22:00, July 4, 2010 (UTC)

But wasn't the whole basis for its "invincibility" was that it could counter all elemental ninjutsu? Skitts (talk) 01:18, July 5, 2010 (UTC)

Itachi's Susanoo was pierced and destroyed by Sasuke's Kirin

Only extremely high powered attacks seem to be able to break through Itachi's version. He had plenty of time to put up a complete version during Sasuke's lecture of his technique. He needed to completely reform it after getting his face burned, his cloak blown off, and after he started coughing up blood. Its near-invincible, but not fully.--SuperSaiyaMan (talk) 19:34, July 25, 2010 (UTC)

You do realize that Susanoo isn't invincible right? The only thing that's been noted to be so is Yata's Mirror, which Susanoo wields. Skitts (talk) 22:40, January 21, 2011 (UTC)

Besides the Itachi didn't have the time to fully summon Susanoo, he only called out an incomplete version at the last minute to give himself some defense. If he had summoned the full Susanoo Kirin wouldn't have done so much damage it would probably only damage the upper layer or less. Darksusanoo (talk) 00:05, January 22, 2011 (UTC)

Itachi's version - The Totsuka Sword section

I recently watched Shippuuden episode 138 where Itachi fights Sasuke and uses The Totsuka Sword to seal Orochimaru.

The thing is I edited the excerpt because the way it's written now is confusing. There are things that would be confusing to someone who either doesn't remember the episode or who hasn't seen the episode. For example, in the current edit there is one sentence that says...

"It is an ethereal weapon with an enchanted blade capable of sealing anything it pierces in a "world of drunken dreams" for all eternity."

Now how would anyone understand what that means. I added that

"Basically anything and everything the Totsuka Sword pierces gets sealed in a dream like genjutsu for all eternity."

This is literally taken from the episode. I've seen two translations. One is from CrunchyRolls subtitles on and the other is from another online source with a slightly different translation. Both pretty much indicate they get trapped in a genjutsu. They even use the word genjutsu. It's important to actually state this so other readers understand the context of what the sword actually does. I don't think simply saying it makes people drunk will have much meaning to some readers, but saying it's a genjutsu holds alot of meaning.

I also felt it was important to point out that what's being "sealed becomes trapped in the sake jar." You can check Shippuuden episode 138 about 14 minutes into the episode. Orochimaru gets sucked into the sake jar.

Also, I felt that saying the sword was an ethereal weapon and the fact that it had no physical form was basically saying the same thing. That's why I added the fact that the sword was ethereal with the sentence about Orochimaru.

"Orochimaru sought the sword all his life and Zetsu commented that he could never find it because the Totsuka Sword is an ethereal weapon that doesn't actually have a physical form."

My version of the edit is below in bold print. The second paragraph in bold is the current edit.

The Totsuka Sword, which is also known as the Sakegari Longsword (酒刈太刀, Sakegari no Tachi; Sake Cutter Longsword), is an enchanted blade which holds a powerfully hypnotic sealing technique. Anything it pierces becomes trapped in a "world of drunken dreams". Basically anything and everything the Totsuka Sword pierces gets sealed in a dream like genjutsu for all eternity. According to Zetsu the Totsuka Sword is the ultimate counter to the Sword of Kusanagi. The Totsuka Sword is sheathed in a sake jar held by a third hand growing from Susanoo's right forearm. The object to be sealed becomes trapped in the sake jar. Orochimaru sought the sword all his life and Zetsu commented that he could never find it because the Totsuka Sword is an ethereal weapon that doesn't actually have a physical form.[3] Zetsu also said that the Totsuka Sword combined with the Yata Mirror essentially makes Susanoo invincible, and it has thus been labeled as the "Raging God of Battle".[1]

Current edit....

The sword, a kind of Sword of Kusanagi also known as the Sakegari Longsword (酒刈太刀, Sakegari no Tachi; Sake Cutter Longsword), is sheathed in a sake jar held by a third hand growing from Susanoo's right forearm. It is an ethereal weapon with an enchanted blade capable of sealing anything it pierces in a "world of drunken dreams" for all eternity. Orochimaru sought the sword and Zetsu commented that he could never find it because it doesn't actually have a physical form.[3] Zetsu also said that the Totsuka Sword combined with the Yata Mirror essentially makes Susanoo invincible, and it has thus been labeled as the "Raging God of Battle".[1]

A few notes about your version:
  • Most translations confused the relationship between this sword and the kusanagi. The current version reflects the accurate description.
  • Victims are not trapped in the sake jar. If anything, they are trapped in the sword, which itself is stored in the sake jar.
  • "ethereal weapon that doesn't actually have a physical form" is partly redundant.
~SnapperTo 18:02, September 15, 2010 (UTC)
I see what your saying, but I just need to ask how do you know? Part of me wants to default to your knowledge because your the moderator and I presume that you have some greater knowledge of these things, but at the same time I'm afraid that your defaulting to your own interpretations. For example, the sources I have read suggest both the swords based on Japanese myth and the ones in the series, seem to suggest that the Kusanagi and the Totsuka are two different swords. Also, from the animation in the episode the sword seems to trigger the sealing, drawing Orochimaru into the the ethereal jar which seems to act as the barrier holding Orochimaru. MochaShakaKhan (talk) 20:16, September 15, 2010 (UTC)
User:ShounenSuki speaks Japanese and says it was a mistranslation. I seem to remember he explained it somewhere, but I can't find it. The official English translation of the manga also describes it as a variant of the kusanagi, not a counter to it.
As for where the victim goes; it's an easy mistake to make. Orochimaru is being sealed at the same time as the sword is being sheathed. If you look closely you'll see Orochimaru is going into the sword, and that the sword is going into the jar. ~SnapperTo 23:12, September 15, 2010 (UTC)


How big is the Susanoo more or less? 30 feet? 40? Darksusanoo (talk) 15:52, October 6, 2010 (UTC)

There is no official source that says how big the Susanoo is.--Deva 27 (talk) 15:57, October 6, 2010 (UTC)
I know that. i just wanted someone to give a estimate out of curiosity.Darksusanoo (talk) 18:08, October 6, 2010 (UTC)

Sasuke's Version

Could we possibly get a picture for Sasuke's version because really he has his own version that looks very different from Itachi's and they don't really share the same Susanoo. --Moonlesss Sky (talk) 19:19, October 31, 2010 (UTC)

Amatersau Flames?

When sasuke finally gained armored for his susanoo in its last stage, it seems to have the black amatersau flames in its left hand-- (talk) 19:57, December 15, 2010 (UTC)

Just because it looks dark, it doesn't mean it's black, and even if it is black, it doesn't mean it's Amaterasu. Loads of people thought that the flames that appear when the Outer Path is used were black, and therefore, Amaterasu. Turns out it wasn't Amaterasu, and the flames were purple. Wait until the anime catches up or someone saying it's Amaterasu. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 20:03, December 15, 2010 (UTC)
Very trure indeed. We'll just have to wait until its confirmed-- (talk) 20:10, December 15, 2010 (UTC)
You should also remember that RAWs may not be of the best quality, and that cleaners can make bad RAWs worse. Therefore, scanlations should not be considered 100% faithful to the mangaka's intentions. ~SnapperTo 20:13, December 15, 2010 (UTC)


Since I couldn't fit it all into my edit summary: the way things were divided was my only issue. I don't personally disagree with restoring anything I might have removed. ~SnapperTo 00:11, March 25, 2011 (UTC)

Hey, should pictures of Itachi's Susanoo second and third stages be in the article too? BlackGhost91 (talk) 01:03, March 25, 2011 (UTC)

That's a next thing suppose Itachi never went through these said stages? --Cerez☻ 01:06, March 25, 2011 (UTC)

There wouldn't be any room.--Deva 27 01:19, March 25, 2011 (UTC)

Or we could take all the images and put them in a gallery by the end of the page. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 01:29, March 25, 2011 (UTC)

I like the gallery option. ~ Fmakck©TalkContributions ~ 01:31, March 25, 2011 (UTC)

Itachi's second and third stage Susano wer shown before. Remember the third-stage of Susanoo was yellow or orange in color and looked like a warrior. (talk) 07:13, March 25, 2011 (UTC)

Couldn't fit in the summary. Basically the fact that the article made it sound that the "forms" are a part of the mastery of the technique, then acknowledging that Itachi's Susanoo dropped a form means that it could have less to do with mastery and more about how much power is put into the technique. This is speculation mind you.
Regardless, if this must have all those images, I suggest a gallery. Having a 2 or 3 sentence paragraph on the ribs and skeletal forms is unnecessary.--TheUltimate3 ~Aspect of Wiki ~ 16:55, March 25, 2011 (UTC)
I'm all for the gallery as long as it's noted that this isn't a mandatory thing to go through all these stages. Either way if it's done i'll just sort that bit.--Cerez™☺ 01:42, March 26, 2011 (UTC)

I thought we prefer no gallery, so why not just choose the best picture out of the four and place it into Sasuke's section? Two pics at most. Yatanogarasu 05:35, April 3, 2011 (UTC)

I mean, when Itachi's Susanoo was first formed, he also formed only the ribcage, and then when it was falling apart, the muscled stage was seen. And we didn't make a gallery for that. The two pictures I suggest for Sasuke's version are the last two stages: the ribcage is so not good, and the muscle stage isn't either. Yatanogarasu 05:37, April 3, 2011 (UTC)

Itachi's Susanoo Pictures

WHy does only Sasuke have pictures of his Susanoo? I think we should add Itachi's in a picture gallery too and show all the different stages of it since not a whole lot of people remember what Itachi's complete Susanoo looks like and only remember Itachi's final version. BlackGhost91 (talk) 02:47, April 4, 2011 (UTC)

I do remember seeing Itachi's Susanoo's ribcage, when he first unveiled it right after blocking Kirin and before forming the muscles and such. Yatanogarasu 05:41, April 15, 2011 (UTC)

Susanoo's Complete Form's Different Colors?
