In the world of Naruto, a select few people use a type of ability called dojutsu. Dojutsus are powers that are confined to a person's eyes. While some, like the Hyuuga clan's Byakugan, do confer visual powers, that's just the beginning of what dojutsu are capable of.
What are the strongest dojutsu? There are some strong contenders. There's the Rinnegan, which is so powerful that it can literally bring people back to life - and that's just one of its plethora of abilities. There's also the Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan, which is an evolved form of the Uchiha clan's signature eye-based ability. Then there's the Byakugan, which lets its user see for miles and target chakra pathways. There are also some cool ones from the fillers - the Chinoike clan's dojutsu basically turns them into anime blood benders.
Vote up the dojutsu you'd be scared to take on in battle, and vote down the ones that seem totally lightweight.
Before there was either the Sharingan or the Rinnegan, there was the Rinne Sharingan. This powerful eye, which often takes the form of a third eye on the user's forehead, can be used to cast Infinite Tsukuyomi, an endless genjutsu that can impact millions of people at once. It can also be used to travel between dimensions.
The only things that stand a chance against the Rinne Sharingan are the chakra from the Nine Tailed Beasts and the Rinnegan.1,658114Strong dojutsu?
Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan
The Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan is a rare variant of the Mangekyo - so rare, in fact, that the only people to develop it are Madara and Sasuke. This form is achieved when one person with a Mangekyo transplants the eyes of another person with a Mangekyo into their own eye sockets, as Sasuke did with Itachi's eyes.
The main benefit of going through this gruesome process is that the Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan can't be extinguished through overuse. The user will never go blind or lose their abilities, unless their eyes are actually removed.1,537101Strong dojutsu?
The Rinnegan is said to be the greatest of the three primary dojutsu, more powerful than either the Byakugan or the Sharingan. It has so many powers that we can't possibly list them all, but here's a short list: users have a massive store of chakra to draw upon, see through invisible barriers, see chakra flowing through a person's body, and master any jutsu or use any type of nature release they choose. A person who is born with the ability to develop a Rinnegan will typically be able to use it more effectively than someone who had one implanted - in fact, some who aren't strong enough to handle the Rinnegan can 'lose themselves' to its power.
The Rinnegan has a unique ability called the Six Paths Technique. Each path has a different ability: for example, the Human Path lets the user extract someone else's soul, while the Deva Path lets the user control attractive and repellent forces. There's also a seventh path called the Outer Path which lets the user bring people back to life, as well as control Tailed Beasts using Chakra Chains.2,078165Strong dojutsu?
The Mangekyo Sharingan is an enhanced form of the Sharingan that is awakened only when a person who already has a Sharingan watches someone they love pass away. It grants each user one or more unique abilities, which are specific to the eyes themselves. So, if a person has a Mangekyo in each eye, they will have two unique abilities. For example, one eye allowed Itachi to use Tsukuyomi, a genjutsu technique that traps its target in an illusory world, while his other eye allowed him to use Ameterasu, an attack that creates black fire that will never go out. Those who awaken both Mangekyo can use Susano-o, a powerful defensive technique.
Overusing the Mangekyo can cause the user to lose not just their dojutsu, but their eyesight.1,134127Strong dojutsu?
