Who owns the Rinnegan?

Who owns the Rinnegan?

One of Naruto’s Big Three Dojutsu , the Rinnegan, is the strongest eye of the Kekkei Genkai. It is said to have been wielded for the first time by Hagoromo Otsutsuki, the Sage of the Six Paths. By using the Rinnegan, the user can learn different Jutsu as  well as several special powers, known as the powers of the Six Paths. A Rinnegan user is said to have control over life and death itself, so only the strongest characters are worthy of this  Kekkei Genkai .  Although the Rinnegan is only a dojutsu, there are several variations among the different characters who have wielded it so far. Here are the ten strongest users of Rinnegan within the Naruto saga!

10. Black Zetsu

Zetsu Black Rinnegan

In a bid to resurrect Kaguya Otsutsuki, Black Zetsu managed to get his hands on the Rinnegan towards the end of the series. By controlling Obito’s body, the Black Zetsu initiated the ” Eternal Cycle of Reincarnations” to bring Madara back to life . As expected, his use of the Rinnegan is very limited, and he doesn’t do much with it other than controlling Obito’s body. So it’s no surprise to see the Black Zetsu at the bottom of this list, which makes him the weakest user of this divine eye in the entire Naruto saga.

9. Jigen


Within the animated Boruto, Jigen is none other than the leader of a secret organization called Kara as well as the receptacle of Isshiki Otsutsuki. Jigen appears to be particularly powerful, he is certainly able to compete in battle against a God.  Moreover according to Koji Kashin, the strength of Jigen would be greater than that of Naruto Uzumaki . Jigen excels in several areas such as the art of Genjutsu, but also in a rather particular ability allowing him to miniaturize surrounding objects as well as himself.

Just like Kaguya, Jigen also has a rather special Jûbi as well as a huge source of chakra. We can also notice that he has a Rinnegan of the same form as that of Kaguya in his Jûbi form.    Although his Jûbi is smaller than Kaguya’s, he is probably just as powerful. His jewel is capable of absorbing an entire ocean or easily destroying a planet.

8. Nagato Uzumaki

Nagato Uzumaki Rinnegan

Also known as Pain , Nagato Uzumaki was one of the most formidable characters in the entire series, mostly thanks to his Rinnegan. Unbeknownst to Nagato, his Rinnegan was given to him by Madara Uchiha .  Thanks to his genetic inheritance from Clan Uzumaki, Nagato was able to utilize the power of this Dojutsu to a high level with the help of the use of the six bodies of Pain!

At full strength, Nagato was able to take on two powerful Jinchūriki , Naruto and Killer Bee. Nagato is a shinobi capable of using the various powers of this eye at high potential, as seen in his fight against Jiraiya, and Naruto.

7. Obito Uchiha

Obito Uchiha Rinnegan

Successor of Madara to apply the “Tsukuyomi Infinite Plan”, Obito Uchiha has been one of the main antagonists of the Naruto saga. After Nagato’s death, Obito took back from him the Dojutsu, Rinnegan, which was given to him by Madara and also made the ” Eye of the Moon Plan ”   come true.

Although not as adept as Nagato at using the Rinnegan, he did manage to gain the powers of the Rikudo, and create his own Six Bread Bodies in an effort to manipulate the Biju he possessed using of Gedo Mazo. As Jinchūriki of the Ten-Tailed Bijû , Obito grew so strong that his powers could only be matched by a few individuals in the saga, such as Naruto Uzumaki and Sasuke Uchiha.

6. Madara Uchiha

Rinnegan Uchiha

Madara Uchiha was one of the few people in the Naruto series who woke the Rinnegan on her own . By fusing the stem cells of Ashura (of the Senju clan) with those of Indra, the cells of his own Clan, Madara gained access to the powerful Rinnegan, which he was able to use to the best of his ability. As Jubî’s perfect jinchuriki, Madara was approaching Hagoromo’s level at a breakneck pace !

Madara is rightly considered a genius. Thanks to his Rinnegan, Madara could also use a special ability known as “Dive into Limbo”, which allowed him to summon clones of himself from an entirely different realm, making him almost invincible.

5. Sasuke Uchiha

Sasuke Uchiha Rinnegan

Widely known as the only shinobi capable of competing with Naruto Uzumaki , Sasuke Uchiha achieved god status by receiving the powers of the Six Yin  Paths from Hagoromo Otsutsuki. Using these powers, he awakened the Rinnegan within his left eye, although his version of his dojutsu consists of six tomoe . As you would expect from a shinobi of Sasuke’s caliber, as an adult, Sasuke has managed to harness all of his Rinnegan’s powers!

From using the Six Powers  to his special teleportation technique called Amenotejikara , Sasuke can do it all. And as if that were not enough, his visual skill is such that he can open portals in different dimensions to go wherever he wants. Sasuke is truly one of its most formidable users. 

4. Kaguya Otsutsuki

Kaguya Otsutsuki

Kaguya Otsutsuki became the first shinobi to manipulate the chakra  on Earth, after consuming the fruit of the divine tree.  Kaguya also possessed a power similar to that of the Rinnegan. His eye, officially known as Rinne-Sharingan is a Kekkei môra which possesses the ability of the Sharingan and the Rinnegan! The Rinne Sharingan is made up of several concentric circles over the entire eyeball as well as a red Iris with nine tomoe.

Using her powers, K aguya can open portals in six different dimensions , and even instantly teleport and those around her. Being an Otsutsuki, she could absorb all chakras, and therefore all ninjutsu were rendered useless against her. The greatest ability of his Rinne-Sharingan was the ability to cast Infinite Tsukuyomi .

3. Momoshiki Otsutsuki

Momoshiki Otsutsuki

One of the main family members of the Otsutsuki clan, Momoshiki, is arguably the strongest we’ve seen . Able to fight the adult Naruto and Sasuke head-on, Momoshiki has emerged as a terrifyingly powerful foe.    Momoshiki had 3 different Rinnegan at his disposal . Using the one in his left hand, Momoshiki could absorb all the chakras, and using the one in his right hand, he could multiply the powers of the Jutsu as well as send them back.  Another Rinnegan was on his forehead. However, what he was doing remains largely unknown. Nonetheless, Momoshiki was an excellent Rinnegan user , and one of the strongest in the Boruto series.

2. Urashiki Otsutsuki

Urashiki Otsutsuki

One of Momoshiki’s underlings , Urashiki appears to be an incredibly powerful God, able to fight with ease against two of the five Kage. Unsurprisingly, much of his power comes from his Rinnegan, which he possesses in both eyes. Unlike Sasuke, Urashiki wields the  tomoe-Rinnegan in both of his eyes . As you would expect from an Otsutsuki, Ninjutsu is practically useless against him.

Urashiki’s Rinnegan allows him to teleport to places instantly, and when combined with his ability to steal people’s chakra and use it, he’s arguably one of the strongest in the series. . Urashiki stole Mitsuki’s Hermit Mode chakra, as well as much of Sasuke’s chakra which, if used, would make him almost invincible.

1. Hagoromo Otsutsuki

Hagoromo Otsutsuki

Also known as Hermit Rikudo , Hagoromo Otsutsuki is arguably the strongest character in the entire Naruto series. Wielding the Rinnegan since childhood, Hagoromo has an unparalleled talent for this type of Dojutsu. A fraction of his powers were shown to us when he created the moon using a Chibaku Tensei .  Even after dividing his own power between Naruto and Sasuke, Hagoromo had enough chakra to  break the Edo Tensei .  He is, without a doubt, the strongest Rinnegan user of Boruto and Naruto!
