According to the Naruto narrative, The Sharingan is one of the three great Dojutsu, along with the Rinnegan and the Byakugan.. This Kekkei Genkai of the Uchiha clan appears selectively and is one of the most powerful in the ninja world. This form first manifested in Indra Otsutsuki, the firstborn son of Hagoromo Otsutsuki; although, a lower version of Kaguya’s Rinne Sharingan had awakened in Indra. Interestingly, contrary to the manga, the Sharingan in the anime first manifested in Hagoromo.
For its part, the Sharingan is not innate, although there are few exceptions in which it can be inherited, in fact this dojutsu is quite rare. It is activated when an Uchiha experiences intense emotions following a defeat, disappointment, or loss, such that his appearance is evidenced by a change in his eyes. This alteration reflects the user’s negative feelings. But let’s move on to the interesting points: the abilities of the Sharingan.
First of all, they have the ability to perceive all types of chakra of the Sharingan through a panoramic acuity that allows them to have an absolute vision of their surroundings. And, as a result of the above, they can mimic jutsus other than Kekkei Genkai. In addition, this ability increases as the person who possesses it acquires enough speed to capture moving objects (especially if these objects have a great speed).
In this way, the powers of the Sharingan are characterized by their effectiveness, there are two that have earned their own space on the podium among the members of the Uchiha Clan -ignoring that their power is so immense that they have been banned-. It’s about the Izanagi and the Izanami.
The Sharingan Izanagi
The first time this genjutsu appeared was during the fight between Danzo and Sasuke Uchiha. its immense power is due to many good reasons. The first of them, one of its main characteristics, is that when activated it eliminates any connection between reality and fantasy. And although it is activated for short periods, it is considered the strongest and most dangerous, due to its nature of non-existent limits. Hence it is determined as a Forbidden Jutsu, even it is claimed to be the perfect Uchiha eye technique.
Compared to any Sharingan genjutsu that modifies the target’s chakra system and displays an illusion upon targeting, the Izanagi casts upon the target’s own reality and changes it at will, or chooses its fate. Another characteristic of the Jutsu is that when the user is mortally wounded, he has the ability to fade to return to reality practically unharmed. An example of this was in the fight between Sasuke Uchiha and Danzo, when he used the Izanagi to avoid death, while the Senju cells in his body achieved the duration of one minute of the Izanagi, in addition to absolute power.
On the other hand, it can only be obtained by those who have genetic traits of the Sage of Six Paths because it is based on their abilities with the Creation of All Things. This means that the Izanagi can bring to life whatever his imagination allows, through spiritual energy centered on the Yin; and then apply vitality based on Yang Release.
There are many advantages that this Jutsu gives, making it one of the best ninja techniques. Although the user becomes almost indestructible, the price to pay for it is very high.
Izanami the sharingan
This Jutsu is the partner of the Izanagi, although somewhat less used. One of the characteristics it shares with its counterpart is that it affects all five of the user’s senses in exchange for the temporary ability to use it. Its use results in the loss of light in the eye used.
The Izanami’s power was created to counter the Izanagi. Contrary to the latter, used to restore balance. To start, the user has to decide on an action, while using the Sharingan to remember the body sensation of the moment, doing it constantly to achieve the goal and, in this way, create a loop. The passage of time will superimpose two identical bodily sensations and reproduce them until they form a pattern. This quality, in a way, makes the jutsu somewhat more dangerous than the Izanagi due to the fact that the user does not have the ability to significantly alter the chain of events, especially if he seeks to escape the destiny that he himself has created. In other words, the Izanagi has the power to decide someone’s fate..
Interestingly, only Itachi Uchiha has been seen throughout the series. And, judging by the events, it does not seem that things can change. During his fight against Kabuto Yakushi, Itachi forced him to repeat his movements until the loop was created. In this way, when the victim has fallen into the trap, the user can activate the Izanami and leave him in a vicious circle that will repeat itself until the end of time. In addition, whoever is trapped will remain motionless while the events are happening cyclically in his head. And the only way out of the Jutsu is when the essence of one’s being and destiny are accepted.
In summary, each of the Jutsus has their respective powers, a fact that has made them the most dangerous techniques of the ninjas. Both the Izanagi and the Izanami have the ability to alter destiny, therefore they have been banned to protect the integrity of the ninja members. But if something is clear to us, it is that the Uchiha clan has been in charge of making itself known as one of the most dangerous.
