List Rules Vote up the anime characters with the most supernaturally effective eye-based powers.

Characters in anime have some pretty bananas abilities. While some overpower their enemies with their martial arts prowess or insanely huge weapons, other have elevated talents that reach beyond tangible weaponry.

From the ability to control the wind to destructive chi energy blasts, these skills exist beyond anything that is possible in the real world. Anime characters with supernatural eye powers fall under this umbrella.

There is no limit to what powerful anime eyes are capable of. Wielded by both the heroes and the villains in our favorite shows, these are not the type of eyes you want to get lost in… unless you have a death wish. Here are some of the most destructive superpowered anime character eyes and their powerful abilities. Don't blink, or you'll miss it.

Regarded as the one of the most powerful abilities in the anime series Naruto, the Rinnegan grants the user the potential to see chakra flow without having to use chakra itself to work. With skills like the Six Paths Technique, the user can attract and repel objects, master any jutsu, extract souls, and even resurrect the dead.

Rinnegan users include Nagato (Pain), Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki, Sasuke Uchiha, Obito Uchiha, and Madara Uchiha. Basically, if you're lucky enough to be born with the Rinnegan you're going to be ridiculously OP.

The Sharingan, the dōjutsu kekkei genkai (abilities passed on genetically) of the Uchiha clan in Naruto, grants its user the ability to copy any jutsu, detect chakra, and anticipate an enemy's next move. Itachi Uchiha was one of the few members of the Uchiha clan to achieve the elusive Mangekyō Sharingan, an evolution achieved after suffering a traumatic event.

Its additional abilities include distorting the perception of time and warping reality into illusions. Eyes that generate illusions. Kind of ironic, no?

A supernatural ability in the Code Geass anime, the strength and abilities of the Geass varies between users. Lelouch Lamperouge, for example, has the "the power of absolute obedience" in which he can control the mind of his opponent and can command their actions. Other Geass abilities include telepathic hearing, memory control, forcing someone to love the user, and precognition.

All of these, of course, are directed by the windows of the soul. Eyes, you guys. Eyeballs.

Exclusive to the Hyūga and Ōtsutsuki clans in the anime Naruto, the Byakugan (a dōjutsu kekkei genkai) serves as a powerful weapon capable of near 360-degree vision up to 10 km away. Gosh, what is it with Naruto and eye stuff? Optometry must be a fascinating field in that universe. 

In addition, the Byakugan allows the user can see the chakra flowing in an opponent's body. Paired with the Gentle Fist technique, the user can effectively disconnect various chakra points, rendering them powerless.
