Learn the difference between Rinnegan and Rinne Sharingan in Naruto Shippuden

In Naruto and its sequence, Naruto Shippuden, there are several powers derived from special eyes that are the result of genetic inheritance. In between Sharingans, Byakugans, Rinnegans, Tenseigans and everything else is easy to get lost on which eye does what.

And when it mixes with each other it gets even more complicated, as in the case of Rinne Sharingan, which is more or less a mixture of Rinnegan and Sharingan, as its name implies.

The Rinnegan is a kekkei genkai said as the best of special eyes, characterized by presenting black eyes with wavy patterns.

Accessing this power gives the user a huge variety of skills, from the simplest ones such as improving eyesight and the ability to visualize chakra flow, to controlling all transformations in nature, instantaneous learning of any jutsu, accessing the Six Paths techniques ( which by chance are seven) and etc.

There are still individual skills, which each person who has access to Rinnegan develops exclusively, such as the limbo clones of Madara and teleportation Amenojitikara in Sasuke.

Rinnegan first appeared in Hagoromo Otsutsuki, son of Kaguya Otsutsuki, and it can only be obtained by mixing a good amount of chakra from the descendants of the two sons of Hagoromo, that is, the Senju and the Uchiha.

It is possible to transfer this eye through implants, such as Madara’s being transplanted in Nagato, but the transplanted user cannot “deactivate” the eye and, like Kakashi and his Sharingan, remains permanently activated.

The Rinne-Sharingan is the predecessor of both Rinnegan and Sharingan, being a red eye with wavy patterns and 9 tomes. It first appeared in Kaguya Otsutsuki and later in Madara Uchiha, after eating the fruit of the Divine Tree and merging with the Ten-Tailed Beast.

Different from the common Rinnegan is that, in addition to having access to the Sharingan’s abilities – which are kind of already included in the Rinnegan’s abilities – whoever owns the Rinne Sharingan can use the Tsukoyomi Infinito, genjutsu with the power to put all the people of the world in eternal illusion.

The user can also transport himself and take others to alternative dimensions with the Amenominaka and use the Nativity of the World of Trees to trap people and suck up the entire chakra to generate new fruit from the Divine Tree.

Naruto Shippuden was shown between the years 2007 and 2017 and counting the second phase of the anime. In it, Naruto returns after two years of training with the mission to fight Akatsuki and then rescue Sasuke from the clutches of Orochimaru.

Altogether, the anime has 500 episodes (including the Naruto Shippuden fillers), and ends the story of Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura and Kakashi. In addition, the anime sets the stage for the direct continuation of the story.

You can follow Naruto in full on Crunchyroll. In addition to it, the service features classic Naruto and Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, its direct continuation.
