Madara, a prominent antagonist in the Naruto series, obtaining his Rinnegan remains an enigma for many Naruto readers.

Madara Uchiha was born in the Uchiha clan. Members of this clan possess unique ocular abilities with the Sharingan being a part of it. As Uchiha’s blood flowed through Madara’s veins, he naturally inherited the Sharingan.

Later, he was able to attain the Mangekyo Sharingan and eventually the Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan. In his old age, he discovered the secret to awakening the Rinnegan, an improved and more powerful version of the traditional Sharingan. The detail of how he achieved this will be covered in this article.

So without further ado…

Let’s get started…

The Journey of Madara Getting Rinnegan

Phase#1 Development of Madara’s Sharingan

With time, Madara experienced significant events in his life, and his Sharingan also became more advanced. Through training and battles, his hunger for power drove the advancement of his Sharingan, leading to the awakening of the Mangekyou Sharingan. Madara became the first Uchiha to awaken the Mangekyo Sharingan.

With his improved Sharanigan, Madara gained the ability to perceive in a more advanced way.

Phase#2 The Importance of Sage of Six Path to Awaken Rinnegan

The Sage of Six Path is a very important ingredient to awaken Rinnegan. Madara had all the resources to obtain the chakra of Sage of Six Path.

Madara and Hashirama were the sons of Hagoromo’s Otsutsuki. Madara was a direct descendant of Indra Otsutsuki and Hashirama was the Asura Otsutsuki.

If someone wants to acquire the chakra of the Sage of Six Paths, there are two ways to do so:

  1. Acquire it on their own.
  2. Acquire and knead the chakra of Indra and Asura Otsutsuki.

The last phase is quite interesting because here, we will see how Madara acquired and kneaded his and Hashirama’s chakra to awaken the Rinnegan.

Last Phase#3 Combining the Needed Chakra to Awaken Rinnegan

As stated in the previous phase, Madara was a descendant of Asura Otsutsuki and possessed Indra chakra from birth. However, in order to successfully awaken Rinnegan, he needed to acquire the chakra of Asura.

To achieve this, he took advantage of his rivalry with Hashirama.

During the battle of the Valley of the End, Madara acquired Hashirama’s flesh and implanted it into his wound and body. This method allowed Madara to blend his chakra with Hashirama’s.

Kneading the chakra of Indra and Asura proved to be a challenging task, as nobody had succeeded in manipulating the reincarnations of Indra and Asura into awakening the Rinnegan until Madara Uchiha.

However, Madara eventually succeeded in this process. It took several decades, close to his death, for his eyes to transform into the Rinnegan.

This transformation significantly impacted his ocular abilities because Rinnegan restored the vision of his right eye, which he had lost due to the technique called Izanagi that he had previously used.

Consequently, Madara obtained the Rinnegan in both eyes.

The Transplantation of Madara Rinnegan and Nagato’s Utilization

Dojustu is a technique that allows a shinobi to transplant the Rinnegan from one person to another. Before his death, Madara used this technique to implant both of his eyes into the young Nagato.

Nagato was unaware of this, and Madara took advantage of the implanted eyes throughout Nagato’s life. This was possible because Madara, as a member of the Uchiha clan, possessed a powerful lineage and was also related to the Senju clan through his ancestry.

The Fate of Nagato’s Rinnegan and Madara’s Acquisition

Obito took advantage of Nagato’s demise and implanted Nagato’s left eye into his own body. Recognizing that his body was unable to handle the immense power of both Rinnegan eyes simultaneously, he decided to hide the other eye.

When Madara was resurrected using Izanagi, he regained possession of both Rinnegan eyes. However, Madara’s Rinnegan was deactivated upon his death.


Rennegan is a powerful ocular ability that a shinobi can obtain. Madara acquired this power by combining the chakra of two distinct clans and patiently waiting for decades.

He implanted Hashirama’s cell into his body to obtain Sage of Six Path chakra, which greatly assisted him in awakening the Rinnegan.


Q.1 How did Madara get Mangekyou Sharingan?

Ans: Madara inherited the Sharingan from his ancestors at birth, and it showed advancements as he aged and gained more experience, eventually evolving into the Magekyou Sharingan.

Q.2 How did Madara get his second Rinnegan?

Ans: Madara Uchiha didn’t actually possess a second Rinnegan. He obtained a single Rinnegan, which was initially awakened in his left eye. Through a process involving the combination of chakra from two distinct clans, he awakened the power of Sage of Six Path, ultimately acquiring the Rinnegan.
Later on, the unbelievable healing characteristic of Rinnegan cured the vision in his right eye, enabling him to utilize the Rinnegan in both of his eyes.
