The Rinnegan was first manifested by [[Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki]], inherited as a [[kekkei mōra]] from his [[Kaguya Ōtsutsuki|mother]]'s [[Rinne Sharingan]]. With his Rinnegan he saved the world from the [[Ten-Tails]] and created [[ninshū]], the precursor of modern [[ninjutsu]]. For his contributions to the world, Hagoromo became revered as the "Sage of the Six Paths" and rose to mythological status through the centuries,<ref>Chapter 425, page 9</ref> with his Rinnegan coming to be deemed by many a legend or a mutation.<ref>Chapter 462, page 11</ref>
<section begin=summary />It was admired as being able to bring forth all ninjutsu.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 425, page 9</ref> It was said that in times when the world is in disorder, a person is sent down from the heavens to become either a "God of Creation" who will calm the world, or a "Destroyer" who will reduce everything to nothingness.<ref name="d3">Third Databook, page 313</ref> The Rinnegan allows the user to use the [[Six Paths Technique]].<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 449, page 1</ref><section end=summary />
 
   
The first person to possess the Rinnegan was the Sage of the Six Paths. Because of the Sage's mythical status, many people believed the Rinnegan was only a legend or a mutation.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 462, page 11</ref> Because the Rinnegan was originally wielded by the Sage of the Six Paths, re-merging his bloodlines: that of the [[Senju]] and [[Uchiha]] can lead to that person awakening this dōjutsu. This was proven when [[Madara Uchiha]] later awakened the dōjutsu by infusing [[Hashirama Senju]]'s DNA into his body; however it did not manifest until he was near the end of his natural lifespan.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 606, page 13</ref> At some point after this, he would implant his eyes into [[Nagato]] — a young [[Uzumaki Clan|Senju descendant]].<ref name="madara">''Naruto'' chapter 606, pages 13-15</ref> [[Obito Uchiha]], being the partner of and given the guise of Madara, believes that since it was given to Nagato by Madara, he is entitled to taking the Rinnegan from Nagato's body after his death.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 509, page 4</ref> He implants one of the Rinnegan in his left socket, replacing the Sharingan he [[Izanagi|sacrificed]].<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 514, page 18</ref>

The Rinnegan can be awakened by combining the [[chakra]] of Hagoromo's sons, [[Indra]] and [[Asura]], in order to create [[Six Paths Chakra|Hagoromo's chakra]].<ref>Chapter 671, page 6</ref> [[Black Zetsu]] spent centuries attempting to do so, trying to manipulate the [[reincarnation]]s of Indra and Asura to awaken the Rinnegan.<ref>Chapter 681, pages 10-15</ref> It was not until the time of [[Madara Uchiha]] - Indra's reincarnation - that Black Zetsu was successful, when Madara infused himself with the DNA of [[Hashirama Senju]] - Asura's reincarnation. However, Madara's [[Sharingan]] did not become Rinnegan until decades later, at the end of his natural lifespan; this also seemingly restored the eyesight lost from his use of [[Izanagi]].<ref>Chapter 681, pages 13-14</ref> When [[Kabuto Yakushi]] [[Summoning: Impure World Reincarnation|reincarnates]] Madara, he operates under a similar hypothesis that Sharingan can be evolved into Rinnegan through combination with Hashirama's DNA. To that end he successfully recreates Rinnegan in Madara's reincarnated body,<ref>Chapter 560, pages 14-15</ref> though these imitation Rinnegan do not have full access to the original's abilities.<ref>Chapter 659, page 7</ref>
   
When Madara was [[Summoning: Impure World Reincarnation|reincarnated]] by [[Kabuto Yakushi]] to fight the [[Allied Shinobi Forces]], Madara once again gained access to the dōjutsu; his Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan transformed into the Rinnegan. Based on data collected over the years, Kabuto Yakushi and [[Orochimaru]] theorised that because the Sharingan originated from the Rinnegan, it was possible for the dōjutsu to change into the Rinnegan as part of a "''natural evolution''".<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 560, pages 14-15</ref> This is supported by the fact he maintains his [[Susanoo]] while having his Rinnegan activated.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 588, pages 14-15</ref> Upon reincarnation, Nagato also retained the Rinnegan.

As with any [[dōjutsu]], Rinnegan can be transplanted into others. Madara implants both of his into [[Nagato]] without the boy's knowledge,<ref name="madara">Chapter 606, pages 13-15</ref> and Nagato is able to make effective use of the Rinnegan throughout his life due to his [[Uzumaki]] lineage.

[[File:Nagato using the Asura Path.png|thumb|left|Nagato using the Six Paths Technique.]]
One of the Rinnegan's trademark techniques is the [[Six Paths Technique]], which grants the user multiple abilities, known as Paths. The [[Animal Path]] can [[Summoning Technique|summon]] several different creatures. The [[Naraka Path]] can summon the [[King of Hell]], which could be used for interrogation and restoration. The [[Preta Path]] can absorb any chakra-based ninjutsu. The [[Asura Path]] can clad the user in mechanised armour and grant them various weapons. The [[Human Path]] can read minds, at the cost of ripping out the victim's soul. The [[Deva Path]] allows the manipulation of gravity-based forces to either repel or pull in an enemy.
+
Possessing the Rinnegan grants the user a family of abilities collectively known as the [[Six Paths Technique]]s:<ref>Chapter 449, page 1</ref> the gravitational powers of the [[Deva Path]]; the menagerie of [[Summoning Technique|summons]] available to the [[Animal Path]]; the limitless absorptive potential of the [[Preta Path]]; the control over others' souls with the [[Human Path]]; the different options of mechanisation in the [[Asura Path]]; access to the [[King of Hell]] through the [[Naraka Path]]. (Nagato distributes these abilities across his [[Six Paths of Pain]] by embedding corpses with his charka receivers.) A seventh ability, the [[Outer Path]], is said to allow the user to preside over life and death so that they may [[Samsara of Heavenly Life Technique|revive the dead]], control the [[Demonic Statue of the Outer Path]],<ref>Chapter 606, pages 12-14</ref> and through it manifest [[Demonic Statue Chains|chakra chains]] to bind others.<ref>Chapter 569, page 10</ref>
   
Finally the user is granted the [[Outer Path]], also known as the seventh Path. It granted the user control over life and death. It can be used to control tailed beasts in a similar fashion to the [[Sharingan]] and the [[Wood Release]] with its [[Demonic Statue Chains|chakra chains]]. The Outer Path also granted a shared field of vision between its user and their summoned creatures and Six Paths of Pain, which gave multiple angles of vision and neutralised any blind spots. At this point all of their eyes would also sport the Rinnegan.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 552, page 3</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 556, pages 5-6</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 569, page 10</ref>
+
Certain Rinnegan abilities have only been demonstrated by single users: Madara can perform [[Limbo: Border Jail]] to create corporeal shadows which are only visible to the Rinnegan;<ref>Chapter 674, page 6</ref> Sasuke's Rinnegan allows him to [[Amenotejikara|shift spaces]] within a certain range of himself.<ref>Chapter 685, page 17</ref>
 
[[File:Pein Rikudō.png|thumb|left|Nagato's Six Paths of Pain.]]
 
When he was crippled by [[Hanzō]], Nagato developed the [[Six Paths of Pain]] where he uses his Rinnegan and chakra receivers on freshly killed corpses to serve as extensions of himself. By doing so, Nagato could see each body's field of vision simultaneously, coordinating them with extremely precise planning. Nagato would also channel one of the abilities of the Six Paths Technique through each corpse. Obito also applied this technique, though he used [[Summoning: Impure World Reincarnation|reincarnated]] jinchūriki. Their eyes sported the Sharingan and Rinnegan, in identical fashion to Obito, and had their tailed beasts temporarily re-sealed inside them, though the Uchiha would not have them use the powers of the Six Paths Technique.
 
   
The users of the Rinnegan also gain access to a special set of tools, the [[chakra receivers]]; black rods which one can use as a medium to channel chakra or produce chakra chains. Madara once used these tools to store a part of his will inside it for the purpose of his revival. Nagato displayed a weaponised, [[Chakra Disruption Blades|blade-like version]] of these, which can disrupt a victim's chakra that have been stabbed by these. Obito displayed another version of this, in the form of [[Chakra Receiver Stakes|giant stakes]] capable of piercing the flesh of a tailed beast and can restrain the beasts with chakra chains.

The Rinnegan (輪廻眼, Literally meaning: Saṃsāra Eye) is reputed as the most exalted eyes amongst the Three Great Dōjutsu (三大瞳術, San Daidōjutsu, Literally meaning: Three Great Eye Techniques),[3] the others being the Byakugan and the Sharingan. Rinnegan wielders are said to be sent down from the heavens to become either a "God of Creation" who will calm the world's disorder or a "Destroyer" who will reduce everything to nothingness.[1] Rinnegan are characterised by light purple sclerae and irides with a ripple-pattern that spreads over the eyeball.

Acquisition Edit

The Rinnegan was first manifested by Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki, inherited as a kekkei mōra from his mother's Rinne Sharingan. With his Rinnegan he saved the world from the Ten-Tails and created ninshū, the precursor of modern ninjutsu. For his contributions to the world, Hagoromo became revered as the "Sage of the Six Paths" and rose to mythological status through the centuries,[4] with his Rinnegan coming to be deemed by many a legend or a mutation.[5]

Madara&#039;s rinnegan

Madara's Rinnegan.

The Rinnegan can be awakened by combining the chakra of Hagoromo's sons, Indra and Asura, in order to create Hagoromo's chakra.[6] Black Zetsu spent centuries attempting to do so, trying to manipulate the reincarnations of Indra and Asura to awaken the Rinnegan.[7] It was not until the time of Madara Uchiha - Indra's reincarnation - that Black Zetsu was successful, when Madara infused himself with the DNA of Hashirama Senju - Asura's reincarnation. However, Madara's Sharingan did not become Rinnegan until decades later, at the end of his natural lifespan; this also seemingly restored the eyesight lost from his use of Izanagi.[8] When Kabuto Yakushi reincarnates Madara, he operates under a similar hypothesis that Sharingan can be evolved into Rinnegan through combination with Hashirama's DNA. To that end he successfully recreates Rinnegan in Madara's reincarnated body,[9] though these imitation Rinnegan do not have full access to the original's abilities.[10]

Sasuke&#039;s rinnegan

Sasuke's six tomoe Rinnegan.

Sasuke Uchiha's left Sharingan becomes a Rinnegan when Hagoromo's spirit gives half of his power to Sasuke.[11] His Rinnegan has six tomoe split between its first two ripples. Sasuke is still able to use the powers of his Mangekyō Sharingan.[12]

As with any dōjutsu, Rinnegan can be transplanted into others. Madara implants both of his into Nagato without the boy's knowledge,[13] and Nagato is able to make effective use of the Rinnegan throughout his life due to his Uzumaki lineage. After Nagato's death the Rinnegan are taken by Tobi,[14] who implants the left into himself and hides the other because he can't handle the power of both eyes at once.[15] Even so, he is able to use the one Rinnegan to devastating effect in the Fourth Shinobi World War. Madara reclaims both of his Rinnegan after he is revived and ultimately dies with them.[16]

Abilities Edit

The Rinnegan grants the wielder a wide range of abilities without any known chakra requirements to keep the eyes active. Certain abilities are only available to the original owner of the Rinnegan, but even then the possession of two transplanted Rinnegan can grant overwhelming power.[15] Rinnegan are able to see chakra and its flow within the body,[17] but cannot detect it through obstructions such as smoke bombs.[18] With the Rinnegan, the wielder can master any jutsu and basic nature transformation with ease.[19] A Rinnegan user is able to create chakra receivers, into which they can transmit their chakra across long distances.[20] Rinnegan can also be used to decipher the full contents of the Naka Shrine.[21]

Nagato using the Asura Path

Nagato using the Six Paths Technique.

Possessing the Rinnegan grants the user a family of abilities collectively known as the Six Paths Techniques:[22] the gravitational powers of the Deva Path; the menagerie of summons available to the Animal Path; the limitless absorptive potential of the Preta Path; the control over others' souls with the Human Path; the different options of mechanisation in the Asura Path; access to the King of Hell through the Naraka Path. (Nagato distributes these abilities across his Six Paths of Pain by embedding corpses with his charka receivers.) A seventh ability, the Outer Path, is said to allow the user to preside over life and death so that they may revive the dead, control the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path,[23] and through it manifest chakra chains to bind others.[24]

Certain Rinnegan abilities have only been demonstrated by single users: Madara can perform Limbo: Border Jail to create corporeal shadows which are only visible to the Rinnegan;[25] Sasuke's Rinnegan allows him to shift spaces within a certain range of himself.[26]

Trivia Edit

Rin&#039;negan

The anime's first rendition of the Rinnegan.

  • Rinne (輪廻, Literally meaning: Wheel Cycle) is the Japanese term for Samsara, the cycle of reincarnation or rebirth in several Indian religions. This is reflected in the names of all Six Paths of Pain, which share their names with the six Samsaric realms of reincarnation.
  • The kanji "Rin" (, Literally meaning: Wheel) is also used in Sharingan and Rinne Sharingan, potentially linking the three terms etymologically.
  • The anime depicts the Rinnegan as being multicoloured in its first few appearances. This is corrected after the Rinnegan starts being depicted in colour in the manga. However, whereas the Rinnegan in the manga is a uniform shade of purple, the anime tends to make the centre-most ring a slightly darker shade of purple.
  • Prior to Sasuke's Rinnegan appearing in colour illustrations by Masashi Kishimoto, the Naruto: Color Edition depicts it as being red. This is corrected in subsequent chapters.
