Description

The Sharingan provides a wide spread of abilities to its users, but is not active from birth. When an Uchiha is in a highly stressful or emotional situation, and it is commonly considered that a life or death situation will activate the eyes. There are three known levels of the Sharingan. The uppermost level is considered kinjutsu by Konoha, and anyone that has the second highest level is checked on regularly. Like the Byakugan, the Sharingan can be turned on and off. Whereas the Byakugan has bulgy veins to indicate when it is active, the Sharingan iris changes color to red from its normal color.

Sharingan

The lowest level of the Sharingan is the most well known version. When first activated, the Uchiha's eyes turn red and gain 0-3 tomoe per eye. Through training and use, additional tomoe may appear until both eyes have 3 tomoe each. At this level, the Sharingan has three main abilities, though the abilities are only in effect when the Sharingan is active.

Mangekyo Sharingan

An evolution of the normal Sharingan, the Mangekyo provides four new abilities to the ones already available. Getting this level is quite difficult, requiring the death of someone close to the user wherein the emotional trauma of the loss activate the higher level. As with the normal Sharingan, after being activated, it can be selected at will. An Uchiha with the Mangekyo can switch between the normal Sharingan and the Mangekyo level while the Sharingan is active.

Having this level is generally frowned upon in Konoha following the events involving Itachi and Sasuke Uchiha, but the village does understand that situations may occur that would result in an inadvertent activation. Any Uchiha that activates the Mangekyo receives regular counseling and psychological evaluation.

Use of the Mangekyo's abilities slowly degrades the eyesight, resulting in the Mangekyo user eventually going blind.

Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan

The highest level of the Sharingan, the Eternal Mangekyo is considered kinjutsu by Konoha. This is because it requires a one-way transplant of a Mangekyo Sharingan user's eyes to another Mangekyo Sharingan user (they can't swap their eyes with each other). This reverses the deterioration of the eyes from Mangekyo ability use. The Eternal Mangekyo acts just like the user's original Mangekyo (which is no longer "accessible").

Izanagi

  • Type: Genjutsu (kinjutsu)
  • Class: Defensive
  • Description: Almost an inverse of the Mangekyo technique Tsukiyomi, Izanagi removes the barrier between illusion and reality in regards to the user. In general, it waves off events negative to the user as illusion and events positive to them as reality. The time it lasts varies from user to user, but once it ends, Izanagi strikes one of the user's Sharingan eyes permanently blind.
