You are currently viewing Why Does Sasuke’s Rinnegan Have Tomoe [Answered]

In the Naruto series, very few characters possessed Rinnegan because having command of this most potent Kekkai Genkai is very tough.

Some well-known characters such as Madara Uchiha, Nagato, Obito Uchiha, Hagoromo and Momoshiki Otsutsuki, Sasuke, and a few other shinobi, possess this rear ability.

Apart from the other known wielders of Rinnegan, Sasuke’s eyes exhibit a unique kind of Rinnegan. While other shinobi have a common Rinnegan pattern in their eyes, Sasuke’s eye possesses a Rinnegan with 6 peculiar dots called Tomoe.

Why does only Sasuke’s eye possess these unusual Tomoe, and what are the benefits of having them on one’s eye, let’s find out the answer to all of your questions in this article.

What is Special About Sasuke’s Rinnegan Tomoe?

Normally, the design of Rinnegan that we have seen on the eyes of other shinobi appears as a few concentric circles covering the eyeball. However, Sasuke’s eye has some comma-shaped patterns in addition to the common design.

Usually, Tomoe are formed on the Sharingan. There is a difference in the design of Sharingan and Rinnegan, Sasuke’s eye, specifically, has a light purple sclera with a circular ripple pattern.

Why Sasuke Rinnegan has tomoe?

It is believed that Sasuke inherited half of the chakra from his ancestor Hagoromo Otsutsuki, which helped to awaken Rinnegan in his body.

When he fights against Madara, somehow Sasuke unlocked his Rinnegan. The Sasuke’s eye that possessed Rinnegan also had the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan.

Sasuke Rinnegan has six tomoe divided across its first two circular lines. Three tomoe appeared at the top of the circular pattern, while the other three appears at the top.

These Tomoe only manifest in Sasuke’s eye when his Rinnegan is fully charged. This six tomoe helped him to utilize the full power of his Rinnegan. If he overuses the power of his Rinnengan, these tomoe will disappear from his eye.

The six Tomoe not only added a cool aesthetic to Sasuke’s eye but also provide him with extra abilities.

Sasuke possesses a special ability to control both Rinnegan and the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan within the same eye.

How Sasuke Recharge His Rinnegan to Awaken Tomoe?

To recharge his Rinnegan, Sasuke closes his left eye until it becomes fully charged. During the charging process, he can use his Mangekyo Sharingan with the Rinnegan, but he is unable to transfer his Mangekyo to his right eye.

What Abilities Did Sasuke Gain With The Rinnegan Tomoe?

Usually, Rinnegan provides special abilities and immense powers to its wielder, but in the case of Sasuke, tomoe provides him with supreme power.

A normal shinobi with a typical Rinnegan possesses six main powers through the six paths, which are listed below:

  1. Deva Path possesses immense gravitational manipulation capability.
  2. Naraka Path possesses the ability to extract hidden information from the summoned soul. It also enhances the healing capability of its host.
  3. Animal Path allows its owner to capture and control powerful creatures.
  4. Asura Path allows its owner to see hidden weapons within their opponent’s body.
  5. Preta Path helps its host nullify the impact of chakra-based attacks.
  6. Human Path allows its owner to read minds, gather hidden information, and extract the soul of his opponent.

Rinnegan with Tomoe possesses all of these capabilities, but Sasuke, who possesses Rinnegan with Tomoe, has one additional ability known as the Outer Path.

The Outer Path grants Sasuke an exceptional ability to manipulate the life and death of others, enabling him to resurrect people.
