Naruto’s eyes: These are all the eye techniques (Dojutsu) of the anime and their characteristics

Naruto“, like all shonen of his class, he starts with relatively simple fights to end up leaving us with absolute barbarities that blow up all kinds of power levels. In particular, what he has always put a ‘power-up’ of noses for his characters have been the eye techniques, known as Dojutsuand the truth is that there are a good handful of them to classify.

These are the Dojutsus that you can find in Naruto

That said, next I intend to pick you up all the main ocular techniques of the lore of “Naruto” as well as its characteristics (via fandom):


  • One of The Three Great Dojutsu, sharing this title with the Sharingan and Rinnegan.
  • Its origin comes from the Otsutsuki clan, and it is a technique mostly associated with the Hyuga clan.
  • Some of the Byakugan’s strengths are as follows:
    • Allows you to see great distances.
    • It makes it easier to detect the chakra of the enemy.
    • Facilitates penetrating barriers.
    • Allows you to detect enemies moving at high speeds.
  • Some of the most famous users of the Byakugan are Neji and Hinata.

Isshiki’s Dojutsu

  • Poorly defined Dojutsu used first by Isshiki Otsutsuki and later by Kawaki.
  • The main abilities of this Dojutsu are:
    • It allows you to reduce the size of yourself as well as any lifeless object or matter in your field of vision.
    • Anything that has been reduced in size by the Dojutsu can later be stored in a completely separate dimension in which time does not flow.
    • It also allows you to create a kind of dark blocks that can stop certain types of jutsus.
    • Another quality is that it allows you to measure someone’s life expectancy.

Of course, the design of Naruto’s Dojutsu evolved in very unique ways.


  • Dojutsu that comes directly from the Otsutsuki clan, considered by the clan itself as ‘problematic’.
  • Some of the Jogan’s main abilities are:
    • Allows you to appreciate the flow of chakra.
    • It allows to appreciate invisible barriers between dimensions.
    • Allows to predict the use of Yomotsu Hirasaka.
  • A well-known user of the Jogan is Boruto.
The Jogan is one of the main Dojutsus introduced in Boruto, the sequel to Naruto.


  • Eye technique that can manifest in members of the Chinoike clan.
  • His power is such that he came to be on a par with the Three Great Dojutsu.
  • Some of its main qualities are the following:
    • Ocular technique specialized in the creation of Genjutsu.
    • It allows to activate the Genjutsu both by physical contact and by connecting the gaze.
    • It also allows you to enter the mind of an enemy and extract information.
    • A great peculiarity of this technique is that it allows handling liquids with a high concentration of iron; that is, it allows the manipulation of blood, both its own and that of others.
  • Some known users are Chino and En Oyashiro.
If someone tells me that this plane is Akira’s and not Naruto’s, I almost believe it.


  • One of the Three Great Dojutsu, a title it shares with the Byakugan and Rinnegan.
  • It selectively appears on members of the Uchiha clan.
  • The origin of his powers is born in the Rinne Sharingan of Kaguya Otsutsuki.
  • The Sharingan has so many abilities that they are divided into two large blocks, the first one being more of a perceptive nature:
    • Allows the user to easily see the chakra.
    • It brutally enhances the user’s perception capacity, to the point of allowing lip reading, imitating things as simple as a moving pencil in one hand, or detecting the seals used in an enemy jutsu.
    • Due to the increased perception ability, it helps to anticipate enemy movements by detecting the tension of muscles and other similar physical details.
    • Some advanced Sharingans come to have the ability to enter the mind of the enemy and even erase certain memories.
    • The Sharingan also allows you to copy and adapt any jutsu seen from the enemy. However, the user must be able to carry out the jutsu in question, so no matter how much they can copy it if their base skills are below what is required, the jutsu cannot be copied.
  • The second block is the one that focuses on the innate techniques of the eye:
    • The Sharingan can carry out a type of Genjutsu used on many occasions to extract information from an enemy or force him to act in a certain way without the enemy himself noticing. Some edge cases allow the user to directly control an enemy.
    • This type of Genjutsu can also be used to break into a jinchuuriki’s subconscious and take control of the beast’s chakra.
    • The Sharingan also allows ‘forcing a future’, that is, the user can copy each and every one of the enemy’s movements, even determining what he is going to say or think, to at the same time cause the enemy to fall into the trap of believing that he is acting of his own free will, when in fact he is doing exactly what the user of the Genjutsu so desires.
  • A peculiarity of the Sharingan is that it can be used by a user who is not a member of the Uchiha clan if an eye transplant occurs.
  • Sasuke and Kakashi are two well-known characters with access to the Sharingan.
Few things as iconic in anime as Naruto’s Sharingan (from Naruto the anime, not the character)

Mangekyo Sharingan

  • The Mangekyo Sharingan is an advanced version of the Sharingan that VERY FEW Uchiha have ever unlocked. The reason for this is that the activation requirement is to witness the death of a loved one for the user.
  • The Mangekyo Sharingan’s abilities obviously encompass all of the standard Sharingan’s, but they also unlock incredibly powerful techniques that vary from user to user (as does the eye design). Some of these techniques are:
    • Amaterasu
    • Susanoo
    • tsukuyomi
  • There is the possibility of reaching a higher and final grade of the Mangekyo Sharingan called ‘Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan’. In essence, the Mangekyo Sharingan is a technique that greatly wears down the user and negatively affects his vision. However, if you transplant the Mangekyo Sharingan eye from another user with whom you are very close by blood, it can end up removing all negative effects and cause the chakra consumption per abilities to be greatly reduced.
  • Sasuke Uchiha was one of the few members of the clan to unlock this version of the Sharingan.

When Sasuke acquired this in Naruto I think more than one of them lost their minds a bit

Ranmaru’s Dojutsu

  • Unique Dojutsu employed by Ranmaru.
  • It is considered to be very close to the Byakugan.
  • In terms of abilities, it is similar to the Byakugan due to its expansion of the perception of the elements (especially in relation to seeing chakra), but it also has other very notable qualities:
    • Can prevent other eye techniques from tracking the user’s chakra
    • Can prevent an enemy from being able to resist a genjutsu
    • Can determine what an enemy’s next move will be
    • Allows the elaboration of complex genjutsus
    • Allows the user to transmit some of their life force to heal others
    • Allows to determine if someone is still alive
It’s funny how some character unique Dojutsu in Naruto can have so much power

Rinne Sharingan

  • Dojutsu predecessor to both the Rinnegan and the Sharingan.
  • Some of its main qualities are:
    • Using the Infinite Tsukuyomi
    • Allows the user to move themselves and others between a number of alternate dimensions
  • A well-known user of this Dojutsu is Kaguya Otsutsuki.

The truth is that when they presented the Infinite Tsukuyomi thing in Naruto… madness


  • Member of The Three Great Dojutsu and considered the most powerful of them all.
  • It was Hagoromo Otsutsuki who first unlocked this Dojutsu, and it is said that in order to access it it is necessary to receive chakra from him or from his descendants.
  • Some of the main qualities of this Dojutsu are:
    • Grants the user a brutal amount of chakra
    • Can see all chakra flow and invisible barriers
    • It allows the user to easily master any jutsu as well as the nature transformation.
    • It is the only Dojutsu capable of fully deciphering the stone tablet of the Six Paths.
    • Access to the Six Paths even allows the user to revive the dead.
    • A Rinnegan user can activate the Rinne Sharingan if they get close to the moon and consequently make use of the Infinite Tsukuyomi.
    • The Rinnegan also grants unique abilities per user.
  • Some known users of the Rinnegan are Sasuke and Madara.
With the Rinnegan of Naruto and the eyes, it was already moved so as not to look back


  • Dojutsu originating from Shibai Otsutsuki.
  • Some of his abilities are as follows:
    • It allows the user’s consciousness to be transferred to any location to see or listen to any event, something that can even be done with the past up to the moment of the user’s birth.
    • This previous ability has the limitation of a mental plane by which the user cannot perceive beyond it.
  • Some known users of the Senrigan are Shibai Otsutsuki herself or Ada.
Surely it is one of the most peculiar Naruto Dojutsu in terms of abilities


  • The Tenseigan is a Dojutsu that is born in response to an Otsutsuki being implanted with the Byakugan of a member of the Hyuga clan.
  • Some known abilities of Dojutsu are:
    • Allows manipulation of gravity
    • Allows the user to bring the inert to life
    • Allows the user to fly
    • Allows the creation of orbs of power of great destruction
It’s cool that in Naruto the Byakugan was given a little more, even if it was as a base

Shion’s Dojutsu

  • Dojutsu whose only known user is Shion.
  • The only known ability allows to see the future of a person, more specifically this is something that is activated suddenly to show the death of the person in question.

Naruto’s only involuntary activation Dojutsu

Yome’s Dojutsu

  • Dojutsu whose only known user is Yome.
  • It mainly has two abilities:
    • It allows to follow the movements of the enemy using drops of water as mirrors of the image.
    • Causes an increase in the user’s evasive abilities on use.

Perhaps the weakest Dojutsu in all of Naruto (?)

And these are all the known Dojutsus or that at least I have been able to find from “Naruto”, and the truth is, a few do not seem exactly to me. Of course, it does not surprise me that it is something that has been nourished so much over the years, and it is that in the end it is a source of power very characteristic of “Naruto” as such and with hardly any presence in other similar works.
