    • Pretty much everything revolving around the Rinnegan, Sharingan and Senju is based on myths/religion. And no, I really don't think that Kaguya eating the fruit is based on Biblical Eve. Not sure why people think that. Eve eating the fruit and having Adam bite some too was the original sin and it was tree of knowledge.

      Kaguya obviously wasn't stated to be the first human female (nor human for that matter), there was no equivalent of Adam with her and the Shinju's fruit was of power, not knowledge.

    • Almost half of the techniques have names related to religion and spiritual belief. Chakra itself is based on the energy concept in Asian mythology. It would almost be easier to ask for the things that do not have any special background. But that would still be a long list.

    • Kishimoto is using Asian and Western religion and mythology centering around the three Main Dojutsu. Kaguya is a references to Eve; she doesnt need to be stated to be the first human, the fact that Kishi used that little bit referencing Genesis.

    • So just because someone eats fruit from tree it must be a reference to Genesis? ...

    • well on top of everything would be the names ... Sarutobi Hiruzen and Uchia Sasuke are from Japanese folklore or not of a famous ninja .. Sarutobi Sasuke and the name of the hidden village Kirigakure (Hidden Mist) was after a famous Ninja called Kirigakure Saizo and well with other Myths and Legends would be the Movie: Legend of the Stone of Gelel ... where Western Mythology came in ...

    • Actually got to say Kaguya maybe be a reference to Genesis but idk simply because the only thing they share is her eating a forbidden fruit which is a very very common myth. You can literally look up almost any religion/civilization in the world, even the reclusive ones that had no contact with anyone else and there is a forbidden fruit myth, and most involve a women eating it. just saying.

    • just to sum up some of the things that come to my mind: rinnegan - buddhism, samsara, 6 stages of existence (god, demigod, human, animal, ghost, hell) gedo mazo - tirthika (buddhism), sokushinbutsu limbo - medieval christianity (part of hell) sharingan/mangekyo - shintoism, all techniques are named after kami byakugan - bagua zhang, I Ging (chinese devination) hashiramas wood jutsu - buddhist statues (senjukannon, hotei etc) indra & ashura - hinduism (names), possibly cain & abel (bible) hagoromo & kaguya - legend of the bamboo cutter datara/daidarabocchi - japanese yokai son goku - sun wukong (journey to the west) raikiri/kakashi - tachibana dosetsu jiraiya, orochimaru, tsunade - jiraiya goketsu monogatari itachi kills orochimaru - legend of susano and yamato no orochi nan no kaizo - rokurokubi (yokai) hari jizo - jizo (bodhisattva) naruto vs sasuke - possibly izanagi trying to get back his wife izanami, who has gone into yomi (underworld)/ become corrupted by evil .... tons of other stuff, here are some links i found: http://anime.stackexchange.com/questions/748/how-are-the-bijuu-adapted-from-real-mythology http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_mythology_in_popular_culture http://nihon-go.org/nihon-go-guides/narutology-an-introduction-to-japanese-mythology-symbolism-in-naruto/ http://www.narutoforums.com/showthread.php?t=814434 http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Forum:Possible_references_to_Japanese_legends

    • Also, Kiba's moves are based off of Greek myths. His Human Beast Mixture Transformation: Three-Headed Wolf is based off of Cerberus and Human Beast Combination Transformation: Double-Headed Wolf s based off of Orthrus. Hyuga is a type of Japanese myth and just about everything about the Dojutsus are myth-based.

      The Sarutobi clan was an actual clan and Sasuke Sarutobi was an actual Samurai (or ninja, I don't remember)
