A major determinant that influences a character’s position within the Naruto and Boruto franchise is Dojutsu. Dojutsu is a type of Kekkai Genkai ability; in other words, an ability inherited through bloodlines that utilize the eye.
There exist variations of Dojutsu that attribute to some of the most intimidating abilities existing within the world. We have ranked them according to their powers below!
Shion’s Dojutsu was introduced in ‘Naruto Shippuden the Movie’ where she inherited it as a priestess of the Land of Demons, Miroku. Through her Dojutsu, Shion was able to see a specific person’s future.
Usually this involved witnessing that person’s death. Upon activation, her dojutsu turns into a bright purple pupil with an ornate design. This Dojutsu activates involuntarily. Shion has made over 100 predictions and had never been wrong until she defied one prediction for Naruto by saving him.
Jougan is a relatively new addition to the Kekkai Genkai abilities within the Naruto franchise. It is quite similar to Byakugan in its abilities to view the chakra pathway system of a shinobi. It can also observe their chakra flow and any visible changes in it.
It allows its user to track individuals by tracing their chakra. It is a dojutsu known only to the Otsutsuki clan. But most importantly, it expands into more unique abilities such as abilities to see lines or barriers that connect dimensions. Initially, the Jougan awakens independently when the user is around a threat.
Ketsuryugan is a dojutsu that is inherited by the members of the Chinoike clan. It can cast genjutsu via eye or skin contact, which is further used to explore their minds for information.
Another unique ability of Ketsuryugan is the manipulation ability or command of iron in the blood that it gives its users. Even any liquid rich in iron is enough to be manipulated. This Dojutsu is often held in comparison to the ‘Three Great Dojutsu.’
7Ranmaru’s Kekkai Genkai
Ranmaru’s Kekkai Genkai is often claimed to be similar to Ketsuryugan by fans. Ranmaru’s Kekkai Genkai can bestow hypnotic powers over its target as well. One of the main features of this Dojutsu is its penetrative vision, which can see through obstructions along with long distances similar to Byakugan.
It has a fantastic feature to cancel out another dojutsu’s visual prowess and one of which includes the mighty Byakugan itself. Ranmaru can transfer some of his life force to people who are nearly dead.
The Byakugan is a dojutsu that originated from the Otsutsuki Clan but gradually came to be associated with their descendants — the Hyuuga Clan. It is considered to be one of the “Three Great Dojutsu.”
The Byakugan’s multitude of abilities has made it quite desirable to many. Its vision offers a 360° perception of the field except for a blind spot. It can penetrate almost any object. Most notably, the Byakugan allows you to see the chakra pathway system of an individual.
Users : Hinata Hyuuga, Neji Hyuuga, Urashiki Otsutsuki, Kaguya Otsutsuki etc.
Sharingan is one of the Three Great Dojutsu that manifests within the Uchiha Clan. It grants its user two primary abilities called the “Eye of Hypnotism” and the “Eye of Insight.” Similar to the Byakugan, it can see the chakra through obstructions but to a limited extent.
It can grant its users incredible perception abilities, which can help them predict movements to a certain extent. The user can memorize any ninjutsu, genjutsu, taijutsu, and copy it almost accurately. The Sharingan also can inflict a form of genjutsu that can even take control of the target’s body at full potential.
Users: Sasuke Uchiha, Obito Uchiha, Kakashi Hatake, Itachi Uchiha, Sarada Uchiha etc.
The Mangekyo Sharingan is a variation of Sharingan that can be activated by a select few Uchihas. The dojutsu is activated upon processing a traumatic event such as the death of a loved one. This dojutsu retains the general abilities of a Sharingan, but it also grants additional abilities in both eyes.
This dojutsu manifests in different techniques with different people, such as Amaterasu or Tsukiyomi or Kamui. It is possible to have two different abilities in each eye. It also grants the user the ability to perform Susanoo.
User: Madara Uchiha, Obito Uchiha, Izuna Uchiha, Shisui Uchiha etc.
The Rinne Sharingan is a predecessor to the Rinnegan and Sharingan. It can grant its users the ocular power of the Sharingan, and in addition to it, the ability to cast an extremely powerful genjutsu called the Infinite Tsukuyomi.
It can be countered solely by Rinnegan and the chakra of the nine tails beast. It first manifested in Kaguya Otsutsuki. It is characterized by red sclera and irides with a pattern of concentric circles with nine tomoe seals.
Users: Kaguya Otsutsuki, Madara Uchiha.
Tenseigan was first introduced in The Last: Naruto the Movie through Toneri Otsutsuki. Tenseigan is manifested when an Otsutsuki receives a Byakugan from a Hyuuga. One of the strongest abilities it offers is its Tenseigan Chakra mode, which is almost on par with the chakra of the nine tails.
This Chakra mode also gives its user the ability to fly and utilize Truth-Seeking Balls. It grants the user the ability to control the moon and, to an extent, the ability to create life.
User: Toneri Otsutsuki
Rinnegan is claimed to be the strongest of the “Three Great Dojutsu,” also known as the “Eye of God.” It helps the user master any jutsu and all five transformations quickly. It is the only dojutsu that can decipher the secrets of the Sage of Six Paths’ stone tablet, which contains invaluable knowledge.
The Rinnegan provides powerful chakra, high ocular power, and powerful sealing abilities. Along with the Six Paths’ Technique, a seventh ability called the Outer Path allows it to revive the dead.
User : Kaguya Otsutsuki, Hagoromo Otsutsuki, Urashiki Otsutsuki, Nagato, Sasuke Uchiha etc.
