The Rinnegan was first manifested by [[Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki]], inherited as a [[kekkei mōra]]<ref group=Notes>In the [[Jin no Sho|fourth databook]], Hagoromo is only classified as a kekkei mōra user, suggesting his Rinnegan was no kekkei genkai.</ref> 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 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>
+
[[File:Madara's rinnegan.png|thumb|left|Madara's Rinnegan.]]
  +
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|reincarnated]] Madara, he operated under a similar hypothesis that Sharingan can be evolved into Rinnegan through combination with Hashirama's DNA. To that end he successfully recreated the Rinnegan in Madara's reincarnated body,<ref>Chapter 560, pages 14-15</ref> though these fake eyes didn't 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.

[[Sasuke Uchiha]]'s left Sharingan became a Rinnegan when Hagoromo's spirit gave half of his chakra to Sasuke.<ref>Chapter 673, pages 15-16</ref> His Rinnegan has six [[tomoe]] split between its first two ripples. The tomoe will disappear if Sasuke overuses his Rinnegan, preventing him from using its full power until it has fully recharged, something that takes a very long time.<ref>Chapter 700+8, pages 17</ref> Sasuke is still able to use the powers of his [[Mangekyō Sharingan]] with his Rinnegan, but apparently cannot use them or even form the Mangekyō in his other eye when it's recharging.<ref>Chapter 700+8, pages 17</ref>

[[File:Momoshiki_Demon_Form.png|thumb|left|Momoshiki's Rinnegan after absorbing Kinshiki.]]
One who gains the Rinnegan has access to a multitude of abilities. On its own, the Rinnegan allows the user to see [[chakra]], including otherwise hidden [[barrier]]s such as the one which [[Sensing System Technique|surrounded]] [[Konohagakure]].<ref name="c419p2">''Naruto'' chapter 419, page 2</ref> The holder of these eyes have the potential to completely master all five basic [[nature transformation]]s that form the basis of ninjutsu.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 375, page 11</ref> It can also decipher more of the [[Sage of the Six Paths]]' [[Naka Shrine|tablet]] than the [[Sharingan]] and the [[Mangekyō Sharingan]] are able to.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 467, page 11</ref> The Rinnegan can also allow its user to summon and control the [[Demonic Statue of the Outer Path]].
+
In ''[[Boruto: Naruto the Movie]]'', [[Momoshiki Ōtsutsuki]] has Rinnegan in the palms of his hands. When he is first seen his Rinnegan are red, but they become the more common purple after he absorbs [[Kinshiki]]'s chakra. This also grants him a third Rinnegan on his forehead.
   
[[File:Nagato using the Asura Path.png|thumb|right|Nagato using the Six Paths Technique]]
+
As with any [[dōjutsu]], the Rinnegan can be transplanted into others. Madara implanted both of his into [[Nagato]] without the boy's knowledge,<ref name="madara">Chapter 606, pages 13-15</ref> and Nagato was able to make effective use of the Rinnegan throughout his life due to his [[Senju]] [[Uzumaki|lineage]]. After Nagato's death, the Rinnegan were taken by [[Tobi]],<ref>Chapter 509, page 4</ref> who implanted the left eye into himself and hid the other because he could not handle the power of both eyes at once.<ref name="ch675pg4">Chapter 675, page 4</ref> Even so, he was able to use one Rinnegan to devastating effects in the [[Fourth Shinobi World War]]. Madara later reclaimed both of his Rinnegan after he was [[Samsara of Heavenly Life Technique|revived]] and ultimately died with them.<ref>Chapter 658, page 17</ref>
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.
+
  +
== Abilities ==
  +
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 the possession of even a single transplanted Rinnegan can grant overwhelming power.<ref name="ch675pg4" /> Rinnegan are able to see chakra, as well as its flow within the body and at least [[Eight Gates|eight]] [[tenketsu]],<ref>Chapter 672, page 1</ref> but cannot see through obstructions such as [[smoke bomb]]s.<ref>Chapter 433, page 13</ref> One who possesses the Rinnegan can master any [[jutsu]] as well as all five [[nature transformation]]s with ease.<ref>Chapter 375, page 11</ref> Rinnegan users are also able to create [[black receiver]]s to which they can transmit their chakra,<ref>Fourth Databook, page 255</ref> fully decipher Hagoromo's [[stone tablet]],<ref>Chapter 467, page 11</ref> and counter the effects of the [[Infinite Tsukuyomi]].<ref>Chapter 677, page 14</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>
+
[[File:Nagato using the Asura Path.png|thumb|left|Nagato using the Six Paths Technique.]]
+
Possessing the Rinnegan grants the user a family of abilities collectively known as the [[Six Paths Technique]]s:<ref name="ch449">Chapter 449, page 1</ref> the gravitational powers of the [[Deva Path]]; the ability to mechanise one's body with the [[Asura Path]]; control over others' souls with the [[Human Path]]; the menagerie of [[Summoning Rinnegan|summons]] available to the [[Animal Path]]; the limitless absorptive potential of the [[Preta Path]]; and access to the [[King of Hell]] through the [[Naraka Path]]. These abilities can be distributed to the [[Six Paths of Pain]] — six bodies embedded with black receivers, which the user can control remotely. A seventh ability, the [[Outer Path]], is said to allow the user to preside over life and death, granting the ability to [[Samsara of Heavenly Life Technique|revive the dead]],<ref name="ch449"/> as well as [[Summoning: Demonic Statue of the Outer Path|summon]] and control the [[Demonic Statue of the Outer Path]],<ref>Chapter 606, pages 12-14</ref> and manifest [[Demonic Statue Chains|chakra chains]] to bind others.<ref>Chapter 569, page 10</ref> The dōjutsu also grants the user a shared field of vision with the Six Paths of Pain, the King of Hell, and the Animal Path's summons, all of which possess copies of the Rinnegan.<ref>Chapter 551, page 5</ref><ref>Chapter 565, page 6</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.
+
Certain Rinnegan abilities have only been demonstrated by single users: Madara can create corporeal shadows in the invisible world of [[Limbo]], which is 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> and create a [[Sasuke Uchiha's Space–Time Dōjutsu|portal]] to other dimensions; Momoshiki is able to [[Chakra Absorption Techniques|absorb]] any ninjutsu with his right Rinnegan and subsequently release it from his left, and use a [[space–time ninjutsu]] to travel to and from his [[Momoshiki's Planet|own dimension]].<ref>Boruto: Naruto the Movie</ref>
   
While the powers of the Rinnegan remain intact upon implanting them in a new person, like Nagato and Obito Uchiha, only one who "naturally" manifests the Rinnegan, as in Madara Uchiha's case, is able to switch between the Rinnegan and Sharingan, otherwise, the Rinnegan is always activated.

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 or red sclerae and irides with a ripple-pattern that spreads over the eyeball and in some cases tomoe.

Acquisition Edit

The Rinnegan was first manifested by Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki, inherited as a kekkei mōra[Notes 1] 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 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 reincarnated Madara, he operated under a similar hypothesis that Sharingan can be evolved into Rinnegan through combination with Hashirama's DNA. To that end he successfully recreated the Rinnegan in Madara's reincarnated body,[9] though these fake eyes didn't have full access to the original's abilities.[10]

Sasuke&#039;s Rinnegan 2

Sasuke's six tomoe Rinnegan.

Sasuke Uchiha's left Sharingan became a Rinnegan when Hagoromo's spirit gave half of his chakra to Sasuke.[11] His Rinnegan has six tomoe split between its first two ripples. The tomoe will disappear if Sasuke overuses his Rinnegan, preventing him from using its full power until it has fully recharged, something that takes a very long time.[12] Sasuke is still able to use the powers of his Mangekyō Sharingan with his Rinnegan, but apparently cannot use them or even form the Mangekyō in his other eye when it's recharging.[13]

Momoshiki Demon Form

Momoshiki's Rinnegan after absorbing Kinshiki.

In Boruto: Naruto the Movie, Momoshiki Ōtsutsuki has Rinnegan in the palms of his hands. When he is first seen his Rinnegan are red, but they become the more common purple after he absorbs Kinshiki's chakra. This also grants him a third Rinnegan on his forehead.

As with any dōjutsu, the Rinnegan can be transplanted into others. Madara implanted both of his into Nagato without the boy's knowledge,[14] and Nagato was able to make effective use of the Rinnegan throughout his life due to his Senju lineage. After Nagato's death, the Rinnegan were taken by Tobi,[15] who implanted the left eye into himself and hid the other because he could not handle the power of both eyes at once.[16] Even so, he was able to use one Rinnegan to devastating effects in the Fourth Shinobi World War. Madara later reclaimed both of his Rinnegan after he was revived and ultimately died with them.[17]

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 the possession of even a single transplanted Rinnegan can grant overwhelming power.[16] Rinnegan are able to see chakra, as well as its flow within the body and at least eight tenketsu,[18] but cannot see through obstructions such as smoke bombs.[19] One who possesses the Rinnegan can master any jutsu as well as all five nature transformations with ease.[20] Rinnegan users are also able to create black receivers to which they can transmit their chakra,[21] fully decipher Hagoromo's stone tablet,[22] and counter the effects of the Infinite Tsukuyomi.[23]

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:[24] the gravitational powers of the Deva Path; the ability to mechanise one's body with the Asura Path; control over others' souls with the Human Path; the menagerie of summons available to the Animal Path; the limitless absorptive potential of the Preta Path; and access to the King of Hell through the Naraka Path. These abilities can be distributed to the Six Paths of Pain — six bodies embedded with black receivers, which the user can control remotely. A seventh ability, the Outer Path, is said to allow the user to preside over life and death, granting the ability to revive the dead,[24] as well as summon and control the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path,[25] and manifest chakra chains to bind others.[26] The dōjutsu also grants the user a shared field of vision with the Six Paths of Pain, the King of Hell, and the Animal Path's summons, all of which possess copies of the Rinnegan.[27][28]

Certain Rinnegan abilities have only been demonstrated by single users: Madara can create corporeal shadows in the invisible world of Limbo, which is only visible to the Rinnegan;[29] Sasuke's Rinnegan allows him to shift spaces within a certain range of himself,[30] and create a portal to other dimensions; Momoshiki is able to absorb any ninjutsu with his right Rinnegan and subsequently release it from his left, and use a space–time ninjutsu to travel to and from his own dimension.[31]

Forms Edit

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" (輪, 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.
    • After Deidara and Sasori brought Gaara to the Akatsuki hideout, Pain is depicted with tomoe in his Rinnegan in one panel.[32] This is corrected in the tankōbon version.[33]
  • In Naruto: Shippūden episode 203, the Sage of Six Paths' Rinnegan are shown as red.
  • Sasuke's Rinnegan has been shown many times with less or more than six tomoe:
    • In its manga début it seemed to have nine tomoe, much like the Rinne Sharingan.[34]
    • When visualising Madara's clone, it had no tomoe.[35]
    • On Jin no Sho's back cover, it was depicted with three tomoe.
  • Prior to Sasuke's Rinnegan appearing in colour illustrations by Masashi Kishimoto, the Naruto: Colour Edition depicted it as being red. This is corrected in subsequent chapters.
  • In Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4, Sasuke's Rinnegan is erroneously identified to as a Rinne Sharingan.

Notes Edit

  1. In the fourth databook, Hagoromo is only classified as a kekkei mōra user, suggesting his Rinnegan was no kekkei genkai.
