Like the other techniques granted by the Mangekyō Sharingan, the user's eyes as well as physical being is strained while using Susanoo because it consumes a large amount of their chakra. Sasuke described it as feeling pain in every cell in his body, as the depletion of chakra likely places stress on the cells that partially produce chakra. Susanoo is formed through the materialization of the user's chakra and as such it may differ in appearance and colour between users. It begins by forming a large skeleton with muscle tissue around the user. Even in an imperfect state, the bones can act as armour for the user and it is capable of regenerating as long as the user has the energy to spare. Sasuke noted the tremendous strain of maintaining his Susanoo after using it for a prolonged time,<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 466, page 05</ref> and seemed to have accelerated Itachi's death from his illness.

==Development==

{{ImgRight|Sasuke Susanoo.jpg|Sasuke's pre-armor form.}}
  +
Susanoo goes through several development stages as users gain control of it. The various stages are best seen while Sasuke is learning how to use Susanoo, though Itachi can briefly be seen with an incomplete form when he first begins to use it and when he runs out of chakra and nears death. In its earliest form, users can only manifest some of Susanoo's skeleton. Sasuke does this to produce a ribcage that he uses as a defense, though the bones can be broken, [[Boil Release: Skilled Mist Technique|melted]], or entirely bypassed. He also makes an arm to interact with his surroundings on one occasion. Because these skeletal structures do not entirely surround them, users can move around much easier.
   
== Susanoo Evolution ==
+
As users gain additional control, musculature and skin begins to appear on the bones. It grows to its full size and the user is completely surrounded, eliminating the vulnerabilities of the skeletal form. Susanoo eventually develops into a "complete" form, with armor and its final arsenal of weapons finally manifesting. It anchors the user to the ground at this stage, preventing opponents from forcibly moving them unless they can get through Susanoo's various layers. In its final form this fully humanoid form is surrounded by a secondary layer of armor that causes Susanoo to resemble a [[Wikipedia:Yamabushi|yamabushi]].
Susanoo goes through many different stages before becoming complete. Sasuke's development of Susanoo is marked by intense feelings of hatred. His Susanoo is also, accordingly, noted to be much darker in both in appearance and composition compared to Itachi's Susanoo. [[Karin]] also noted how Sasuke's chakra had become "darker and colder" before and when he used this technique. It was also noted by Gaara, that it is the power of darkness.<ref name="Sasuke Susanoo">''Naruto'' chapter 460, pages 14-15</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 464, page 17</ref>

=== Itachi's version ===

Itachi's version is crimson coloured. In its left hand it wields the [[Yata Mirror]] as a shield. The mirror is endowed with all [[nature transformation]]s, allowing it to change its own characteristics depending on the characteristics of the attack it receives, making the technique ineffective. In its right hand it wields the [[Sword of Totsuka]]. The sword, a kind of [[Sword of Kusanagi]] also known as the {{translation|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 [[Fūinjutsu|sealing]] anything it pierces. Victims of the sword are trapped in a [[genjutsu]]-like "world of drunken dreams" for all eternity. [[Zetsu]] said that the Totsuka Sword combined with the Yata Mirror essentially makes Susanoo invincible, and it has thus been labelled the {{translation|'''Tempestuous God of Valour'''|勇武の荒神|Yūbu no Aragami}}.<ref name="Data"/>

[[File:Susanoo 484 RAW.jpeg|thumb|Sasuke's final Susanoo.]]
The first form that Susanoo takes is the ribcage with a single skeletal arm after forming. Useful for a quick, mobile defence since it isn't as restricted as the larger forms. While Normal attack aren't powerful enough to penetrate it, sufficiently strong attacks can shatter the defence by breaking the ribs leaving the user vulnerable.

Sasuke's version is purple coloured. While he is learning how to control it, Sasuke's Suasnoo possesses a chakra blade for attack. Once he masters it it gains a [[Susanoo Bow|bow]] that doubles as a weapon and shield. Susanoo produces chakra arrows from its right hands, which can be fired at such speed that evading them is nearly impossible.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 484, page 06</ref> The arrow's design changes when his Susanoo gains a layer of armor.

Sasuke's development of Susanoo is marked by intense feelings of hatred; whenever angered by the words or actions of his opponents, Susanoo grows in power. His Susanoo is, accordingly, noted to be much darker in both in composition compared to Itachi's Susanoo.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 464, page 17</ref> It also has a more demonic appearance, possessing horns, jagged teeth, and six fingers on each of its hands.
[[File:SasukeSusanooIncomplete.png|thumb|Susanoo's second stage.]]
 
The second stage Susanoo has the form grow to its complete size, gaining some muscle over the bones for added defence and destructive power. Sasuke's Susanoo also gains a chakra sword, which can cut through multiple stone pillars with ease. The defence of this form is can eblock a barrage of attacks with little to no damage.

=== Third Stage: Complete Skin Form ===
 
[[File:Sasuke_Susanoo.jpg|thumb|Susanoo's third stage.]]
 
This is considered one of Susanoo's completed forms where it gains skin. Itachi's and Sasuke's version begin differ in appearance that this form: Itachi's looks like a warrior-like humanoid being, while Sasuke's looks like a evil and demonic humanoid being. In this form, it gains its main weapons- A [[Susanoo Bow|Bow]] for Sasuke or the [[Sword of Totsuka]] and [[Yata Mirror]] for Itachi. This form's defenses are extremely high, and it is strong enough to anchor the user against the suction of a [[Baku (summon)|Baku]]. However, like the previous forms, sufficiently strong attacks can penetrate it.

=== Fourth Stage: Complete Armoured Form ===
 
[[File:Susanoo_484_RAW.jpeg|thumb|Sasuke's Susanoo in its final stage.]]
 
The final form of Susanoo gains its armor, which resembles a [[Wikipedia:Yamabushi|yamabushi]] and also adds another layer of defence. It swallows the Skin Susanoo and makes it even more formidable. Sasuke's version has a much darker and menacing appearance with more jagged sharp teeth around the hooded area. Like the previous forms, extremely strong attacks are able to defeat it.

Users

Susanoo is the third ability granted by the Mangekyō Sharingan, after Amaterasu and Tsukuyomi have been awakened in both eyes.[1] It creates a gigantic, spiritual humanoid being that surrounds and protects the user. According to Madara Uchiha, for a Sharingan user to activate the Susanoo is a rarity.[2] Like the other techniques granted by the Mangekyō Sharingan, the user's eyes and body are strained while using Susanoo because it consumes a large amount of their chakra. Sasuke described it as feeling pain in every cell in his body which only grew from prolonged use.[3] Susanoo is formed through the materialization of the user's chakra and as such it may differ in appearance and colour between users.

Development

File:Sasuke Susanoo.jpg

Susanoo goes through several development stages as users gain control of it. The various stages are best seen while Sasuke is learning how to use Susanoo, though Itachi can briefly be seen with an incomplete form when he first begins to use it and when he runs out of chakra and nears death. In its earliest form, users can only manifest some of Susanoo's skeleton. Sasuke does this to produce a ribcage that he uses as a defense, though the bones can be broken, melted, or entirely bypassed. He also makes an arm to interact with his surroundings on one occasion. Because these skeletal structures do not entirely surround them, users can move around much easier.

As users gain additional control, musculature and skin begins to appear on the bones. It grows to its full size and the user is completely surrounded, eliminating the vulnerabilities of the skeletal form. Susanoo eventually develops into a "complete" form, with armor and its final arsenal of weapons finally manifesting. It anchors the user to the ground at this stage, preventing opponents from forcibly moving them unless they can get through Susanoo's various layers. In its final form this fully humanoid form is surrounded by a secondary layer of armor that causes Susanoo to resemble a yamabushi.

Itachi's version

Itachi's version is crimson coloured. In its left hand it wields the Yata Mirror as a shield. The mirror is endowed with all nature transformations, allowing it to change its own characteristics depending on the characteristics of the attack it receives, making the technique ineffective. In its right hand it wields the Sword of Totsuka. 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. Victims of the sword are trapped in a genjutsu-like "world of drunken dreams" for all eternity. Zetsu said that the Totsuka Sword combined with the Yata Mirror essentially makes Susanoo invincible, and it has thus been labelled the Tempestuous God of Valour (勇武の荒神, Yūbu no Aragami).[1]

Sasuke's version

Susanoo 484 RAW

Sasuke's final Susanoo.

Sasuke's version is purple coloured. While he is learning how to control it, Sasuke's Suasnoo possesses a chakra blade for attack. Once he masters it it gains a bow that doubles as a weapon and shield. Susanoo produces chakra arrows from its right hands, which can be fired at such speed that evading them is nearly impossible.[4] The arrow's design changes when his Susanoo gains a layer of armor.

Sasuke's development of Susanoo is marked by intense feelings of hatred; whenever angered by the words or actions of his opponents, Susanoo grows in power. His Susanoo is, accordingly, noted to be much darker in both in composition compared to Itachi's Susanoo.[5] It also has a more demonic appearance, possessing horns, jagged teeth, and six fingers on each of its hands.

Trivia

  • Prior to the completion of Sasuke's Susanoo, it was glimpsed as a shadowy figure in a genjutsu that Sasuke placed C under.[6]
  • Sasuke's bow-wielding form of Susanoo bears a great resemblance to Raideen the Brave, one of a number of Yoshiyuki Tomino references in the series (another being the Gundam-derived names of Kakuzu's jutsu).
  • The Totsuka Sword wielded by Itachi's Susanoo is considered to be a "Sword of Kusanagi", although this has been popularly mistranslated as it being the perfect counter to the Sword of Kusanagi.
  • During the Sasuke vs. Itachi boss battle in Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2, Susanoo doesn't appear around Itachi, but behind him, and it's more orange in colour than red from the anime. However, during his Awakening, Susanoo appears around him in a much smaller form.
