<section begin=summary/>The Mangekyō Sharingan has the ability to control the [[Nine-Tailed Demon Fox]],<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 385, page 15</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 399, page 15</ref> a feat only [[Madara]] and [[Obito Uchiha]] have displayed thus far.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 458, page 3</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 501, page 9</ref> It also grants them access to other powerful techniques. The Mangekyō Sharingan is distinguished from a normal Sharingan by its appearance, which changes the form of the [[tomoe]] seal.

<section begin=summary/>A Mangekyō Sharingan is distinguished from a normal Sharingan by its appearance, which changes the form of the [[tomoe]] seal. The exact design differs for each user, though all resemble [[Wikipedia:Pinwheel (toy)|pinwheels]]. It is initially awakened by the trauma suffered from witnessing the death of someone close to the user. Uchiha have historically misunderstood this criteria as the user needing to be responsible for the person's death, and for that reason they developed the practice of killing their closest friends in order to gain the Mangekyō Sharingan.<ref>Chapter 386, page 13</ref><section end=summary/> [[Obito]]'s Mangekyō activated immediately after his trauma, whereas, in ''[[Naruto Jinraiden]]'', [[Sasuke]]'s Mangekyō didn't activate until several weeks afterwards.
   
The Mangekyō Sharingan is awakened through the trauma experienced from the death of a person very close to the Sharingan user. With the user normally having to witness or experience this first hand, Uchiha throughout history have killed a person very close to them in order to expedite this process,<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 386, page 13</ref> though how Shisui gained his Mangekyō Sharingan has yet to be revealed. To obtain the Mangekyō Sharingan, one must ''feel'' the emotion of losing a friend or family, as merely killing them or watching them die will not activate it.
+
The Mangekyō Sharingan retains all of the Sharingan's generic abilities, such as casting [[Genjutsu: Sharingan|genjutsu]] and the ability to distinguish [[chakra]]. In addition to these, the Mangekyō grants powerful abilities that differ from user to user, though abilities may be similar in nature; both Sasuke and [[Itachi]] have access to [[Amaterasu]]'s flames, though the extent to which they can use them differ. The abilities of a Mangekyō Sharingan may not even be the same for both of a single user's eyes, as Itachi has Amaterasu in one eye and [[Tsukuyomi]] in another. Once a user awakens the Mangekyō in both eyes,<ref>Chapter 464, page 16</ref> or the ability of both of their eyes, they are able to perform [[Susanoo]].
   
[[File:Madara & Izuna.jpeg|thumb|left|Izuna and Madara after awakening their Mangekyō Sharingan.]]
+
The Mangekyō Sharingan's abilities drain a considerable amount of chakra when performed. Its usage and activity also place a great strain on the user themselves, wearing at the user's body and causing deterioration to their vision until eventually over-usage leaves them blind.<ref>Chapter 385, page 15</ref> Their vision can be restored by receiving the transplanted Mangekyō of an Uchiha with strong blood ties — ideally a sibling — thus awakening so-called {{translation|'''Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan'''|永遠の万華鏡写輪眼|Eien no Mangekyō Sharingan}}.<ref>Chapter 386, pages 7-9</ref> The Eternal Mangekyō merge the designs of the transplanter and the transplantee's original Mangekyō. Their Mangekyō-based abilities are made stronger and they no longer suffer any negative side-effects from the usage. According to [[Madara]], the Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan is proof an Uchiha continues to seek something despite experiencing great losses.<ref>Chapter 662, page 16</ref> Should the eyes evolve to this state, the user will retain all their previous techniques from their original eyes. In addition to the unique techniques, the {{translation|"straight tomoe"|直巴|Choku Tomoe}} form of Madara's and Sasuke's Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan grants them fluidity in their movements when fighting.<ref>Chapter 657, page 8</ref>
Over time, use of the Mangekyō Sharingan's techniques deteriorates the user's eyesight to the point of blindness.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 385, page 15</ref> Only by taking and transplanting the Mangekyō of another Uchiha — integrating the two pairs of eyes in the process — can the vision be restored, a process that results in the creation of an {{translation|'' Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan''|永遠の万華鏡写輪眼|Eien no Mangekyō Sharingan}}.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 386, pages 7-9</ref> It would appear that the tighter the blood ties are between the "donor" and the "receiver", the better it is for compatibility — a sibling for example seems to make the best donor.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 386, pages 11-15</ref> The time from fusing the donor's Mangekyō with the receiver's Mangekyō to the point of full recovery is at least several days as seen in Sasuke's case.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 488, page 17</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 515, page 5</ref> Not only does this process permanently restore one's eyesight, but it also gives the person even greater increases in power. The Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan also changes form from the original Mangekyō form, to what appears to be a fusion of the wielder's own Mangekyō with the transplanted one. If an Uchiha with the Mangekyō Sharingan is reincarnated through the Summoning: Impure World Reincarnation technique, they gain the ability to use the Mangekyō Sharingan for extended periods of time without complaints of any deteriorating vision, as seen in Itachi's case.
 
   
Madara was able to change his Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan into the [[Rinnegan]]<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 560, page 16</ref> after implanting the DNA of [[Hashirama Senju]] into himself, though the dōjutsu only awakened years after the implant, when Madara's natural lifespan was almost over.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 606, page 12</ref>
+
As with any [[dōjutsu]], Mangekyō Sharingan can be transplanted into non-Uchiha, granting them all its abilities albeit with steeper chakra demands. Abilities of a Mangekyō Sharingan can also be programmed to activate under certain circumstances, either within the user's own eyes or in a target of the user's choosing; this programming remains even after death.<ref>Chapter 681, page 13</ref>

=== Itachi Uchiha ===
 
=== Itachi Uchiha ===
[[Itachi Uchiha]] gained the Mangekyō Sharingan by aiding his best friend, [[Shisui]], in killing himself.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 550, page 11</ref> With the Mangekyō Sharingan, Itachi was able to use at least three powerful techniques. With his "left Mangekyō" he could use [[Tsukuyomi]], an extremely powerful [[genjutsu]] that allowed him to distort the victim's perception of time, torturing their psyche for what seemed like days in a matter of seconds. With his "right Mangekyō" he could use [[Amaterasu]], a [[ninjutsu]] which creates virtually-inextinguishable black flames at the user's focal point that continue to burn until the target is reduced to ash. The last of these known techniques was [[Susanoo]], which allowed Itachi to summon a massive ethereal warrior. This entity fights on behalf of Itachi and shields him from most attacks. According to [[Zetsu]], when it is combined with the [[Yata Mirror]] and [[Sword of Totsuka]] it essentially made Itachi invincible. Itachi's Susanoo has three forms which it goes through: an incomplete skeletal form, a complete warrior-like form and a final form that resembles a [[Wikipedia:Yamabushi|yamabushi]].
+
[[Itachi Uchiha]] awakened his Mangekyō Sharingan after witnessing the suicide of his best friend, [[Shisui Uchiha]], shortly before the [[Uchiha Clan Downfall]].<ref>Chapter 550, page 11</ref> With his left Mangekyō he can use [[Tsukuyomi]], an extremely powerful [[genjutsu]] that distorts the victim's perception of time. With his right Mangekyō he can use [[Amaterasu]], creating inextinguishable black flames at the user's focal point. Because he awakened both his Mangekyō, he can use [[Susanoo]]. Use of the Mangekyō is particularly debilitating for Itachi, such that after using it three times in one day he can no longer keep even his normal Sharingan active.<ref>Chapter 148, page 7</ref> Some time after Itachi's died, desiring the power to kill Naruto, Itachi's brother, [[Sasuke Uchiha]], had Itachi's eyes transplanted into him.
   
Use of the Mangekyō Sharingan put a great strain on Itachi's body and would quickly deplete his chakra reserves to the point that after using it three times in a day, he deactivated his eyes to their normal state.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 148, page 7</ref> A [[Shapeshifting Technique|clone]] containing 30% of his chakra couldn't use it once. By the time he battled Sasuke, his sight had been reduced to a large blur, yet having resolved himself to dying at the hands of his brother, pushed past this limitation and used his Mangekyō Sharingan more than three times as well as other techniques. After Itachi's death, Sasuke, at first, refused to take his eyes despite his own deteriorating eye-sight, but eventually did so he could face Naruto at his best, obtaining an Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan in the process.
+
=== Obito Uchiha ===
  +
<span id="Kakashi Hatake"> </span>
  +
[[Obito Uchiha]] awakened his Mangekyō Sharingan after the death of [[Rin Nohara]] during the [[Third Shinobi World War]]; Obito himself only had his right eye at the time, but the event caused his Mangekyō to simultaneously awaken in [[Kakashi Hatake]], who wielded Obito's left eye.<ref name="chpt605">Chapter 605, page 4</ref> Both eyes have access to [[Kamui]], able to teleport targets to and from [[Kamui's Dimension]] though in different manners. The right eye is able to use close-range Kamui, teleporting the user or those they're in contact with. By teleporting only parts of their body there, they can in effect seamlessly pass through other matter. The left eye is able to use long-range Kamui, creating a barrier around a target that teleports them.<ref>Chapter 276, page 10</ref> The left eye can also target the user themselves.<ref>Chapter 608, pages 3-7</ref> During the [[Fourth Shinobi World War]], it was discovered that each eye is impervious against the others' Kamui.
   
=== Kakashi Hatake ===
+
[[Madara Uchiha]] steals Kakashi's eye in order to pursue Obito to Kamui's dimension. There, he exchanges the eye for Obito's [[Rinnegan]], returning both eyes to their original owner, who was currently [[Body Coating|possessed]] by [[Black Zetsu]]. During this brief period, Black Zetsu also gained access to both Sharingan powers. After Obito was freed from Black Zetsu's control, he uses them in combination effectively thereafter, but the eyes are destroyed when he is killed by [[Kaguya Ōtsutsuki]]'s [[All-Killing Ash Bones]]. His spirit briefly returns to the living plane and inhabits Kakashi, giving him both Mangekyō's with their respective abilities and, by extension, [[Susanoo]].
[[Kakashi Hatake]]'s Mangekyō Sharingan awakened, after the trauma of killing [[Rin Nohara]] with his own hands.<ref name="chpt605"/> Despite its awakening, Kakashi only began to use the Mangekyō during Part II of the series, whether he knew he possessed it beforehand is unknown. Regardless, with this dōjutsu Kakashi can use a space–time ninjutsu known as [[Kamui]] to create a barrier and send a target to the [[other dimension]] and afterwards teleport them back in a new location. The barrier requires considerable effort to aim with precision, leaving Kakashi's chakra significantly drained; especially considering that Kakashi is a non-Uchiha. Initially, he could only handle two uses in a single day, left crippled for over a week from a third use,<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 278, pages 6-7</ref> and had poor control at aiming it.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 276, page 10</ref> However, after much practice, he can now even control the size of it to only affect the target he chooses, and use precise aim to warp speeding targets.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 424, pages 16-17</ref> He can also use it twice in quick succession, without showing immediate chakra drain and fatigue, to counter [[Sasuke Uchiha]]'s [[Susanoo]] arrows.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 484, page 6</ref> By the time of the [[Fourth Shinobi World War]], Kakashi became able to use it several more times in a single day, even with multiple other chakra-taxing techniques, and recover from an over-usage much quicker. His skill has grown to the point that he can use this technique on himself.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 608, pages 3-7</ref>
 
 
=== Obito Uchiha ===
 
After witnessing [[Rin Nohara]] dying at Kakashi's hands, [[Obito Uchiha]] awakened his Mangekyō Sharingan.<ref name="chpt605"/> As the two share the same pair of eyes, Obito's Mangekyō Sharingan also allows him to use [[Kamui]], although his version differs from that of Kakashi's. Whereas Kakashi's version works on targets from a distance, Obito's version requires him to first make physical contact with a target besides himself and afterwards, he can teleport the target back from the other dimension. In addition, Obito's version gives him a form of "''intangibility''", brought about by him teleporting portions of his body for short periods of time to the other dimension in order to avoid damage or pass through obstacles. This also provides Obito immunity from Kakashi's Kamui being used directly against him since they both access the same dimensional space, though attacks being warped by Kamui to the other dimension can bypass Obito's intangibility.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 599, page 8</ref> He can also combine the spatial distortion of the Kamui with his [[Fire Release]] techniques to create a [[Fire Release: Blast Wave Wild Dance|massive vortex of flames]].
 
   
 
=== Madara Uchiha ===
 
=== Madara Uchiha ===
[[Madara Uchiha]], along with his younger brother Izuna, were the first Uchiha to awaken the Mangekyō Sharingan.<ref name="chpt386p6">''Naruto'' chapter 386, page 6</ref> He eventually began to go blind from overusing it, and only by taking his younger brother's eyes, did he regain his sight.<ref name="chpt386">''Naruto'' chapter 386, pages 7-8</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 624, page 13</ref> This also gave him an Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan which granted him even greater power.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 386, page 9</ref> His Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan looks like his original one, overlapping that of Izuna's.
+
[[Madara Uchiha]] was the first Uchiha to awaken the Mangekyō Sharingan.<ref name="chpt386">Chapter 386, page 6</ref> It's not known what the individual abilities of each of his eyes were, but he was able to use [[Susanoo]]. When Madara's over-usage of his Mangekyō during the [[Era of Warring States]] left him blind, this prompted his brother, [[Izuna Uchiha]], to bequeath Madara his eyes on his deathbed for the sake of preserving the Uchiha, thus granting Madara the Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan.<ref name="c624">Chapter 624, page 13</ref> The straight tomoe of his Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan granted him fluidity in his movements when fighting.
   
Madara became one of the few to awaken [[Susanoo]], as a result of awakening [[Amaterasu]] and [[Tsukuyomi]] in both eyes. Madara boasts a "perfect" full-bodied Susanoo that is equal in power to that of a tailed beast. He could also use his Susanoo to shape it around [[Kurama]] to protect it from [[Hashirama Senju]]. His Susanoo has shown unique attributes in that it has two faces and two sets of hands instead of a single face and three hands as seems to be the standard.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 590, page 10</ref> Madara can also completely control the [[Nine-Tails]] with the dōjutsu,<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 385, page 17</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 386, page 2</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 568, page 7</ref> a feat which no one else but Obito Uchiha has achieved.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 501, page 8</ref>
+
Towards the end of his life, Madara was able to evolve his eyes into [[Rinnegan]], which he transplanted to [[Nagato]] when Nagato was a child without anybody ever knowing. The eyes eventually find their way back to Madara after he is [[Outer Path Samsara of Heavenly Life Technique|revived]].
   
 
=== Izuna Uchiha ===
 
=== Izuna Uchiha ===
Alongside his brother, [[Izuna Uchiha]] and Madara were the first two people in the clan to awaken the Mangekyō Sharingan.<ref name="chpt386p6"/> Madara later took Izuna's eyes to regain his deteriorating vision.<ref name="chpt386"/> There are many, and somewhat conflicting accounts of how Madara acquired the eyes; some note that Izuna willingly gave up his eyes for the [[Uchiha clan]]'s sake,<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 399, pages 3-4</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 624, page 13</ref> another implied that Madara took them by force.<ref name="chpt386"/>
+
[[Izuna Uchiha]] awakened his Mangekyō Sharingan shortly after Madara did.<ref name="chpt386" /> It's not known what the individual abilities of each of his eyes were. Before he died, Izuna entrusted his eyes to Madara in order to restore his vision and thus protect the Uchiha from extinction.<ref name="c624" /> Despite Izuna giving the eyes willingly, Madara is popularly believed to have taken the eyes against Izuna's will.<ref name="chpt386" />
   
 
=== Sasuke Uchiha ===
 
=== Sasuke Uchiha ===
[[Sasuke Uchiha]] awakened his Mangekyō Sharingan after learning the truth about his brother, Itachi; filled with grief from learning that Itachi was not the villain he imagined him to be and the role he played in his brother's death. Unlike other Mangekyō Sharingan, which have red pupils, and black irides, and red sclerae, Sasuke's Mangekyō is the first one that is shown to have a black pupil, red irides, and black sclerae.
+
[[Sasuke Uchiha]] awakened his Mangekyō Sharingan after the death of his older brother, [[Itachi Uchiha]]. With his left Mangekyō he can cast [[Amaterasu]]. With his right Mangekyō he can [[Blaze Release: Kagutsuchi|shape]] the flames or extinguish them. Because he awakened both of his Mangekyō, he can use [[Susanoo]]. Sasuke is initially reluctant to transplant Itachi's eyes and gain the Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan, claiming that his views were different from Itachi's. Later, he decided he needs the increase of strength in order to kill [[Naruto Uzumaki]]. The straight tomoe of his Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan grant him fluidity in his movements when fighting.
   
Sasuke has been shown using the same Mangekyō Sharingan techniques as Itachi, but in an inverted manner. With his "right Mangekyō" he can use [[Tsukuyomi]] to break a target's will and paralyse them.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 408, page 4</ref> [[Danzō Shimura]] stated that Sasuke's version is not yet capable of altering the victim's perception of time, and thus is vastly inferior to Itachi's.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 478, page 3</ref> With his "left Mangekyō" he can use [[Amaterasu]]. It has been implied that his skill with Amaterasu surpasses Itachi's, as he is able to use [[Blaze Release: Kagutsuchi]] with his "right Mangekyō" to apply [[Shape Transformation]] to the flames, as well as extinguish them at will. Sasuke has displayed the ability to use [[Susanoo]], which he can even partially manifest to fit the situation, such as using a ribcage for defence or manifesting only an arm to interact with his surroundings. Sasuke's Susanoo develops in stages during various battles; he first starts using an incomplete version against the [[Fourth Raikage]], develops a version capable of firing arrows while fighting with Danzō, and later forms a version almost identical to Itachi's during his battle with Kakashi. Sasuke's Susanoo appears more demonic than Itachi's.
+
After acquiring the half of Hagoromo's chakra, Sasuke's left Mangekyō Sharingan evolved further into a unique version of the Rinnegan.
   
Due to his high chakra reserves, Sasuke is able to use the Mangekyō Sharingan techniques more than three times a day. Sasuke can maintain Susanoo for extended periods of time, on top of using the Amaterasu and Tsukuyomi several times a day along with some other chakra-consuming techniques like the [[Chidori]]. Like with all other wielders, Sasuke's use of the Mangekyō Sharingan puts a great strain on Sasuke's body and eyes.
+
=== Shisui Uchiha ===
  +
<span id="Danzō Shimura"> </span>
  +
[[Shisui Uchiha]] awakened his Mangekyō Sharingan through unknown means. With each of his eyes he could use [[Kotoamatsukami]], a powerful genjutsu that manipulates a target's thoughts completely without any, including the target, having the slightest idea that they were being controlled. However, this technique can't be used with the same eye again until after a prolonged period of time.<ref>Chapter 550, page 12</ref> In the [[Ninja Escapades|anime]], awakening the Mangekyō Sharingan in both eyes allowed him to use [[Susanoo]].
   
Initially, Sasuke refused to transplant Itachi's eyes to restore his vision even when it was reduced to a heavy blur at best, claiming that his views were different from Itachi's. However, after meeting Naruto again and being shocked at his determination to save Sasuke from his darkness, Sasuke decided to take Itachi's eyes so that he could kill Naruto with his full strength. His Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan takes the shape of his old Mangekyō Sharingan, but incorporates a straightened version of Itachi's Mangekyō Sharingan design into its centre. With his new eyes, the final form of his Susanoo takes on a more ghastly shape.
+
When Shisui attempted to use Kotoamatsukami in order to avert the [[Uchiha Clan Downfall]], his right Mangekyō was stolen by [[Danzō Shimura]], who felt Shisui's plan was futile and wished to protect the village in his own manner. Fearful that Danzō would take his other eye too, Shisui entrusted it to his best friend, [[Itachi Uchiha]], and begged him to use it to save [[Konoha]].<ref name="chpt590">Chapter 590, page 6</ref> Danzō transplants the eye he took into himself and uses it over the years to manipulate others to his way of thinking, using the power of [[Hashirama Senju]] to reduce its recharge time. Danzō destroys the eye before his death so that nobody else could have it.<ref>Chapter 482, page 13</ref> Itachi transplanted the eye he was given into [[Itachi's Crow|a crow]] that he planned to use to re-ally his brother, Sasuke, with Konoha.<ref>Chapter 403, pages 2-8</ref> He unintentionally used it on himself instead when he is [[Summoning: Impure World Reincarnation|reincarnated]] in order to break free of [[Kabuto Yakushi]]'s control. Itachi [[Amaterasu|incinerates]] the crow afterwards so that nobody else could have the eye.
   
=== Shisui Uchiha ===
+
=== Indra Ōtsutsuki ===
[[Shisui Uchiha]] awakened his Mangekyō Sharingan at some point through unknown means. It granted him the ability to cast powerful [[genjutsu]] techniques, the most powerful of his genjutsu arsenal being [[Kotoamatsukami]].<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 550, page 9</ref> This technique allowed him to manipulate an opponent's thoughts completely without them having the slightest idea that they were being controlled. Furthermore, this technique can be used without eye contact or even the need to uncover the eye if concealed.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 550, page 10</ref> The only drawback of using that technique was the fact that it would render his Mangekyō unusable for quite some time.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 550, page 12</ref>
+
[[Indra Ōtsutsuki]] was the originator of the Sharingan and Mangekyō Sharingan. It's not known what the individual abilities of each of his eyes were, but he was able to use [[Susanoo]].<ref>Chapter 670, page 18</ref>
   
A highly coveted ability, Shisui's right eye was stolen by [[Danzō Shimura]] while he was still alive.<ref name="chpt590">''Naruto'' chapter 590, page 6</ref> After replacing his own right eye with Shisui's and infusing some of [[Hashirama Senju]]'s DNA into himself, Danzō was able to drastically reduce the timespan between each usage of this technique. Shisui entrusted his left eye to Itachi Uchiha and told him to protect the village and the clan's name;<ref name="chpt590"/> Itachi implanted it into [[Itachi's Crow|a crow]] which he later stored inside [[Naruto Uzumaki]].<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 403, pages 2-8</ref> Shisui then made it appear as though he had crushed his own eyes in order to prevent a feud over them and erased his existence, though it was thought that he was drowned by Itachi in the [[Naka River]].<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 550, page 11</ref> Both eyes are eventually destroyed, with Danzō crushing his before dying,<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 482, page 13</ref> and Itachi [[Amaterasu|incinerating]] the crow after it came back out of Naruto.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 552, page 11</ref>

This Mangekyō Sharingan form is uniquely shared between multiple (yet connected) individuals.

With his right eye, [[Shin Uchiha]] is able to [[Weapon Manipulation Technique|telekinetically manipulate any objects]] after first branding them with a special mark.<ref>Chapter 700+4, pages 2-3</ref> Shin's [[Shin Uchiha (Clones)|clones]], being genetically identical to him, possess the same Mangekyō Sharingan design and with it the same telekinetic powers.<ref>Chapter 700+4, pages 2-3</ref> [[Sharingan Spying Creature|A creature]] also shares the same Mangekyō Sharingan design with Shin.<ref>Chapter 700+4, page 6</ref>

The Mangekyō Sharingan (万華鏡写輪眼, Literally meaning: Kaleidoscope Copy Wheel Eye) is an advanced form of the Sharingan that has only been activated by a handful of Uchiha.[1] They are noted to be the "heavenly eyes that see the truth of all of creation without obstruction" (天壌の理を掌握せし瞳, tenjō no kotowari o shōakuseshi hitomi).[2]

Overview Edit

Madara &amp; Izuna

Izuna and Madara after awakening their Mangekyō Sharingan.

A Mangekyō Sharingan is distinguished from a normal Sharingan by its appearance, which changes the form of the tomoe seal. The exact design differs for each user, though all resemble pinwheels. It is initially awakened by the trauma suffered from witnessing the death of someone close to the user. Uchiha have historically misunderstood this criteria as the user needing to be responsible for the person's death, and for that reason they developed the practice of killing their closest friends in order to gain the Mangekyō Sharingan.[3] Obito's Mangekyō activated immediately after his trauma, whereas, in Naruto Jinraiden, Sasuke's Mangekyō didn't activate until several weeks afterwards.

The Mangekyō Sharingan retains all of the Sharingan's generic abilities, such as casting genjutsu and the ability to distinguish chakra. In addition to these, the Mangekyō grants powerful abilities that differ from user to user, though abilities may be similar in nature; both Sasuke and Itachi have access to Amaterasu's flames, though the extent to which they can use them differ. The abilities of a Mangekyō Sharingan may not even be the same for both of a single user's eyes, as Itachi has Amaterasu in one eye and Tsukuyomi in another. Once a user awakens the Mangekyō in both eyes,[4] or the ability of both of their eyes, they are able to perform Susanoo.

The Mangekyō Sharingan's abilities drain a considerable amount of chakra when performed. Its usage and activity also place a great strain on the user themselves, wearing at the user's body and causing deterioration to their vision until eventually over-usage leaves them blind.[5] Their vision can be restored by receiving the transplanted Mangekyō of an Uchiha with strong blood ties — ideally a sibling — thus awakening so-called Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan (永遠の万華鏡写輪眼, Eien no Mangekyō Sharingan).[6] The Eternal Mangekyō merge the designs of the transplanter and the transplantee's original Mangekyō. Their Mangekyō-based abilities are made stronger and they no longer suffer any negative side-effects from the usage. According to Madara, the Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan is proof an Uchiha continues to seek something despite experiencing great losses.[7] Should the eyes evolve to this state, the user will retain all their previous techniques from their original eyes. In addition to the unique techniques, the "straight tomoe" (直巴, Choku Tomoe) form of Madara's and Sasuke's Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan grants them fluidity in their movements when fighting.[8]

As with any dōjutsu, Mangekyō Sharingan can be transplanted into non-Uchiha, granting them all its abilities albeit with steeper chakra demands. Abilities of a Mangekyō Sharingan can also be programmed to activate under certain circumstances, either within the user's own eyes or in a target of the user's choosing; this programming remains even after death.[9]

Variations Edit

Note: Sections are listed only for the original owners.

Itachi Uchiha Edit

Itachi Uchiha awakened his Mangekyō Sharingan after witnessing the suicide of his best friend, Shisui Uchiha, shortly before the Uchiha Clan Downfall.[10] With his left Mangekyō he can use Tsukuyomi, an extremely powerful genjutsu that distorts the victim's perception of time. With his right Mangekyō he can use Amaterasu, creating inextinguishable black flames at the user's focal point. Because he awakened both his Mangekyō, he can use Susanoo. Use of the Mangekyō is particularly debilitating for Itachi, such that after using it three times in one day he can no longer keep even his normal Sharingan active.[11] Some time after Itachi's died, desiring the power to kill Naruto, Itachi's brother, Sasuke Uchiha, had Itachi's eyes transplanted into him.

Obito Uchiha Edit

Obito Uchiha awakened his Mangekyō Sharingan after the death of Rin Nohara during the Third Shinobi World War; Obito himself only had his right eye at the time, but the event caused his Mangekyō to simultaneously awaken in Kakashi Hatake, who wielded Obito's left eye.[12] Both eyes have access to Kamui, able to teleport targets to and from Kamui's Dimension though in different manners. The right eye is able to use close-range Kamui, teleporting the user or those they're in contact with. By teleporting only parts of their body there, they can in effect seamlessly pass through other matter. The left eye is able to use long-range Kamui, creating a barrier around a target that teleports them.[13] The left eye can also target the user themselves.[14] During the Fourth Shinobi World War, it was discovered that each eye is impervious against the others' Kamui.

Madara Uchiha steals Kakashi's eye in order to pursue Obito to Kamui's dimension. There, he exchanges the eye for Obito's Rinnegan, returning both eyes to their original owner, who was currently possessed by Black Zetsu. During this brief period, Black Zetsu also gained access to both Sharingan powers. After Obito was freed from Black Zetsu's control, he uses them in combination effectively thereafter, but the eyes are destroyed when he is killed by Kaguya Ōtsutsuki's All-Killing Ash Bones. His spirit briefly returns to the living plane and inhabits Kakashi, giving him both Mangekyō's with their respective abilities and, by extension, Susanoo.

Madara Uchiha Edit

Madara Uchiha was the first Uchiha to awaken the Mangekyō Sharingan.[15] It's not known what the individual abilities of each of his eyes were, but he was able to use Susanoo. When Madara's over-usage of his Mangekyō during the Era of Warring States left him blind, this prompted his brother, Izuna Uchiha, to bequeath Madara his eyes on his deathbed for the sake of preserving the Uchiha, thus granting Madara the Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan.[16] The straight tomoe of his Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan granted him fluidity in his movements when fighting.

Towards the end of his life, Madara was able to evolve his eyes into Rinnegan, which he transplanted to Nagato when Nagato was a child without anybody ever knowing. The eyes eventually find their way back to Madara after he is revived.

Izuna Uchiha Edit

Izuna Uchiha awakened his Mangekyō Sharingan shortly after Madara did.[15] It's not known what the individual abilities of each of his eyes were. Before he died, Izuna entrusted his eyes to Madara in order to restore his vision and thus protect the Uchiha from extinction.[16] Despite Izuna giving the eyes willingly, Madara is popularly believed to have taken the eyes against Izuna's will.[15]

Sasuke Uchiha Edit

Sasuke Uchiha awakened his Mangekyō Sharingan after the death of his older brother, Itachi Uchiha. With his left Mangekyō he can cast Amaterasu. With his right Mangekyō he can shape the flames or extinguish them. Because he awakened both of his Mangekyō, he can use Susanoo. Sasuke is initially reluctant to transplant Itachi's eyes and gain the Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan, claiming that his views were different from Itachi's. Later, he decided he needs the increase of strength in order to kill Naruto Uzumaki. The straight tomoe of his Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan grant him fluidity in his movements when fighting.

After acquiring the half of Hagoromo's chakra, Sasuke's left Mangekyō Sharingan evolved further into a unique version of the Rinnegan.

Shisui Uchiha Edit

Shisui Uchiha awakened his Mangekyō Sharingan through unknown means. With each of his eyes he could use Kotoamatsukami, a powerful genjutsu that manipulates a target's thoughts completely without any, including the target, having the slightest idea that they were being controlled. However, this technique can't be used with the same eye again until after a prolonged period of time.[17] In the anime, awakening the Mangekyō Sharingan in both eyes allowed him to use Susanoo.

When Shisui attempted to use Kotoamatsukami in order to avert the Uchiha Clan Downfall, his right Mangekyō was stolen by Danzō Shimura, who felt Shisui's plan was futile and wished to protect the village in his own manner. Fearful that Danzō would take his other eye too, Shisui entrusted it to his best friend, Itachi Uchiha, and begged him to use it to save Konoha.[18] Danzō transplants the eye he took into himself and uses it over the years to manipulate others to his way of thinking, using the power of Hashirama Senju to reduce its recharge time. Danzō destroys the eye before his death so that nobody else could have it.[19] Itachi transplanted the eye he was given into a crow that he planned to use to re-ally his brother, Sasuke, with Konoha.[20] He unintentionally used it on himself instead when he is reincarnated in order to break free of Kabuto Yakushi's control. Itachi incinerates the crow afterwards so that nobody else could have the eye.

Indra Ōtsutsuki Edit

Indra Ōtsutsuki was the originator of the Sharingan and Mangekyō Sharingan. It's not known what the individual abilities of each of his eyes were, but he was able to use Susanoo.[21]

Shin Uchiha Edit

This Mangekyō Sharingan form is uniquely shared between multiple (yet connected) individuals. With his right eye, Shin Uchiha is able to telekinetically manipulate any objects after first branding them with a special mark.[22] Shin's clones, being genetically identical to him, possess the same Mangekyō Sharingan design and with it the same telekinetic powers.[23] A creature also shares the same Mangekyō Sharingan design with Shin.[24]

Trivia Edit

  • Originally in the anime, Itachi Uchiha was shown using techniques exclusive to the Mangekyō Sharingan without having it active.[25] This is because Kishimoto had not revealed the appearance of the Mangekyō Sharingan in the manga yet. A true form of the Mangekyō Sharingan was first seen, from Itachi, while Sasuke remembered the events leading to the Uchiha Clan Downfall as he fought with Naruto Uzumaki at the Valley of the End.[26]
  • Despite using his Mangekyō extensively for over a decade, Obito never displayed any signs of fatigue or deteriorating eyesight.
  • The manners in which an individual gains the Mangekyō Sharingan are almost parallel to how an Uchiha awakens their regular Sharingan for the first time, since both need intense emotions to awaken them.
  • In the manga, Sasuke Uchiha's Mangekyō Sharingan is the only one with an inverted colour scheme, boasting a red design and black iris.
