Rinnegan colour

Could someone explain to me why we list his palm Rinnegan as red? The only official colourisation by Kishimoto is the one on the lead movie poster (, and there, the Rinnegan are purple. The red Rinnegan comes from the anime, as far as I'm aware. • Seelentau 愛 20:20, November 28, 2016 (UTC)

As far as I know, Momoshiki's Rinnegan didn't have a chance to appear in anime yet. It was depicted as red in Boruto Movie all the time (at least, until Momoshiki absorbed Kinshiki), and since Kishi was directly involved in its production, I think it's a vaid reason to list his Rinnegan (shown that way in the movie up to Momoshiki's transformation) as red against a single purple depiction (which can be simply an error or a sign of the movie being still in developement).
Edit: Okay, two purple depictions. But Boruto manga has a plenty of cosmetic changes actually. Ravenlot 27 (talk) 20:39, November 28, 2016 (UTC)
The movie is anime. Kishimoto was directly involved in the movie, yes. And he decided to paint it purple. I have no clue why the movie shows it as red, but usually, the official manga colours take precedence before the anime colours. • Seelentau 愛 20:47, November 28, 2016 (UTC)
It seems that I missed something on the wiki, namely that now movie = anime. It didn't go that way, especially since it's Boruto Movie which is one of two movies (along with The Last) treated as a part of the official (manga) storyline. Not anime, but manga storyline. Also, as far as I know, it's a movie poster, not a manga page.
The only reason why Momoshiki's Rinnegan should be listed purple instead of red is the latest Boruto volume cover, because in our canon policy it's written that the Boruto manga and its changes are superior to the movie since it's a more recent material. However, this is the only valid reason I can see now Ravenlot 27 (talk) 20:54, November 28, 2016 (UTC)
You didn't miss anything. It doesn't matter that the movies are part of the canon storyline, they are still anime and thus full of mistakes (Sasuke deactivating his Rinnegan, for example). And the picture is the cover for the official movie book, drawn by Kishimoto. As far as I know, Kishimoto's illustrations overrule anime depictions. • Seelentau 愛 21:06, November 28, 2016 (UTC)
Even if it's technically a manga depiction, it doesn't change the fact that manga has its mistakes as well. While Sasuke's Rinnegan deactivation might be a mistake, the same chance of an error goes for Momoshiki's purple Rinnegan, since in both cases we can't know for sure if it's a mistake or not. And no, not all of Kishi's depictions are superior to the anime versions, I think that's the reason why we don't list regular Rasengan as yellow, for example.

I don't know... there's this cover [1] and this [2]. I don't remember what's written in the novel...--Sharingan91 (talk) 21:29, November 28, 2016 (UTC)
How can the original design be an error, when there was no updated design by the same creator? And we don't list the regular Rasengan as yellow because, as opposed to the Rinnegan, Kishimoto has drawn it in at least two colours. • Seelentau 愛 21:32, November 28, 2016 (UTC)
Either way, it's almost the single case of Rinnegan depicted as purple (+ one more from the recent Boruto volume). The movie was still in production when it got released, a lot of updates happened after this. But if you're so sure that the note about purple colour is necessary, it's enough to add it in description of Momoshiki's Rinnegan (with the appropriate references) without deleting the statement about red Rinnegan. Since these are the only cases where Momoshiki's Rinnegan was shown as purple, while all the other show it as red, would be pretty strange to list the purple as the only colour (especially in the same acticles where images from the Boruto Movie clearly depict it as red). Ravenlot 27 (talk) 21:44, November 28, 2016 (UTC)
Never said anything about deleting it. And the movie book was released alongside the movie, not before. We have two manga depictions as purple and one anime depiction as red. So I'd change it to purple (red in the movie) or so, later. • Seelentau 愛 21:52, November 28, 2016 (UTC)
So, manga suggests Byakugan= white, Sharingan=red, Rinnegan=purple --Sharingan91 (talk) 21:58, November 28, 2016 (UTC)
But the Rinnegan is red on Boruto chapter cover, isn't it? Maybe it changes color or whatever--Elve [Mod] Talk Page|Contribs 22:26, November 28, 2016 (UTC)
As always, I brought this up because I talked about it somewhere else. In this case, someone claims that the volume cover isn't valid because Momoshiki isn't depicted correctly overall (grey skin etc.), so the purple Rinnegan isn't valid either, and that on the movie book cover, the Rinnegan is red with a purple saturation (or so, I have no clue about that). To me, it still looks purple, so what should we do? • Seelentau 愛 10:55, November 29, 2016 (UTC)
Does this help at all? Considering Momoshiki's rinnegan colour can be effected by eating chakra pills/fruit, i don't think we can say he has only 1 canon colour. --Sarutobii2 (talk) 13:13, November 29, 2016 (UTC)

I think Rinnegan is weaker when it is red and stronger when it is purple.. point being that when he absorbed Kinshiki(who I believe has a Rinnegan on his forehead behind his horn, as Sasuke warned that Momoshiki AND Kinshiki could also absorb jutsu, and it seems that Kinshiki's chakra weapons ability is his user specific Rinnegan tech) both of Momoshiki's hand Rinnegan stayed purple. and he gained a a purple one on his forehead.

@Seel, Momoshiki's Rinnegan are drawn red on Boruto chapter 5 cover, purple on volume 2 cover, both drawn by the same person I suppose? So it has been drawn both red and purple by the new staff.--Elve [Mod] Talk Page|Contribs 13:54, November 29, 2016 (UTC)
Yes, but on volume 2, Momoshiki is coloured grey, which is obviously not his real colourisation, so it's likely that the Rinnegan isn't really purple, either. I think it's called artistic license? Dunno. • Seelentau 愛 15:17, November 29, 2016 (UTC)
Hmm... I really cannot believe I looked at the volume cover and didn't even notice the color change... WindStar7125 Divine Mangekyō Sharingan VolteMetalic 19:25, November 29, 2016 (UTC)

Wood(?) Dragon Jutsu

His weird wood dragon thing he does is called Inukaitakerunomikoto (犬飼健命), which has ties to the story of Momotaro (the source of Momoshiki's name). There, Momotaro befriends a dog, a monkey and a pheasant and together, they beat some ogre. This is based on another folktale of the prince Kibitsuhiko, which you can read here. The name of the jutsu comes from this folktale. • Seelentau 愛 14:26, December 22, 2016 (UTC)

Rasengan colour

So, the Storm 4 Road to Boruto calls it the "Crimson Rasen". Not sure what you all can do with that, but figure it's worth noting.--—Mina Țepeș 20px 02:49, February 4, 2017 (UTC)

red Rinnegan mystery solved?

It simply occurred to me. We have seen official artwork and media depicting Momoshiki's Rinnegan as both purple and red. We just assumed that he has a special red Rinnegan, but what if his Rinnegan being red is simply an effect of his Takamimusubinokami technique? In other words, when his absorption/ejection is active, the Rinnegan turns red, while he is not using the technique, the Rinnegan looks like any other, makes sense, doesn't it?--Elve [Mod] Talk Page|Contribs 18:29, June 14, 2018 (UTC)
