The Mangekyō Sharingan in Naruto is an evolved form of the Sharingan which can be awakened by a user upon experiencing great emotional trauma, usually triggered by the death of a loved one. This eye grants tremendous powers which usually come in two distinct abilities, one in each eye.

When awakened in both eyes, the user of the Mangekyō Sharingan can also awaken the Susanoo, one of the strongest powers in Naruto. Fans have seen many powerful Uchiha with the Mangekyō, but some users are much stronger than others.

Updated on May 10th by Xandalee Joseph: Naruto has one of the most versatile power systems in anime. With different clans and multiple jutsu, several Naruto characters have distinct abilities. One of the most powerful Kekkei Genkai in the series is the Sharingan. The famed Uchiha eyes have multiple stages, and the Mangekyō Sharingan is one of the strongest dojutsu. However, not all Uchia are overpowered. We’ve updated this list with more information on the strongest and weakest Mangekyo users.



Strongest Mangekyō Sharingan Users

Shin Uchiha

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>

Shin Uchiha is among the most powerful of Orochimaru’s experiments. Orochimaru gave him a Sharingan and Hashirama Senju’s genetic material – causing him to become obsessed with the Uchiha Clan – which is why he took the Uchiha name.

He somehow forged a Mangekyō Sharingan for himself and was able to hold his own against an admittedly weakened Naruto and Sasuke in Boruto. Shin’s Mangekyō gave him vast and precise telekinetic abilities that allowed him to skillfully use weapons from afar. He had plans to resurrect the Akatsuki before being killed by his own clones.

Itachi Uchiha

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Itachi kills his parents

Itachi Uchiha was one of the best Mangekyō Sharingan users, if not the best, in the series. He awakened his Mangekyō Sharingan after the death of his best friend Shusui Uchiha. Over the years, he trained it to a degree where he unlocked the powers of the Tsukuyomi and the Amaterasu.

Itachi was brilliant and his use of the Mangekyō was unmatched. He even used Shisui’s Mangekyō to release himself from Kabuto’s Edo Tensei during the Fourth Shinobi War. Itachi could also use the Susanoo to quite a decent extent and his Avatar wielded the power of the Totsuka Blade and the Yata Mirror, making him invincible.

Obito Uchiha

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Obito Uchiha wears orange mask in Naruto.

Obito Uchiha was one of the strongest Uchiha to ever exist. He awakened his Mangekyō Sharingan during the Third Great Ninja War after witnessing Rin die. Obito’s eye weilded the Kamui, a powerful space-time ninjutsu. Even with just one eye, Obito was recognized as an incredible threat to the entire world.

At a very young age, he was strong enough to fight Minato Namikaze. Obito later used his Sharigan to control the Nine-Tails, and launched a devastating attack on Konoha. Over the years, he gained tremendous control over this eye. Unfortunately, Obito couldn’t use this eye in the 10-Tails state, making it useless.

Madara Uchiha

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Uchiha Madara smiling with the Sharingan

Madara, along with Izuna, was the first Uchiha to awaken the powers of the Mangekyo Sharingan. In time, he made his eyes even stronger by transplanting his brother’s eyes into his, making his Mangekyo eternal in the process.

In addition to the innate Mangekyo abilities such as seeing through genjutsu and copying an opponent’s move, Madara’s Mangekyō Sharingan could release the Full-body Susanoo which was strong enough to slice through mountain ranges with a casual slash. Madara also stole multiple Mangekyo Sharingan and mastered their special moves as well, one notable instance of this is when he stole Kakashi’s eye and easily used the Kumi.

Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Hagoromo Otsutsuki Naruto

Hagoromo is the Sage of the Six Paths and head of the Ōtsutsuki Clan. His power is beyond legend. The Rinnegan, Sharingan, and Byakugan all stem from his bloodline.

The full extent of his Mangekyō Sharingan abilities are ultimately unknown, but fans do know that he could manifest a full Susanoo. His legend also implies whatever his Mangekyō Sharingan powers were, they were unprecedented.

Indra Otsutsuki

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Indra Otsutsuki

Indra Otsutsuki was Hagoromo’s eldest son and he inherited the visual prowess of his father. At some point, he awakened the Mangekyō Sharingan and trained it to a degree where he was labeled the strongest Sharingan user.

Indra’s Mangekyō Sharingan abilities were unknown, however, he was capable of using a Fullbody Susanoo with just the Mangekyo Sharingan.

Sasuke Uchiha

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Sasuke Boruto handsign jutsu

Undoubtedly, the strongest Uchiha of all-time, Sasuke gained the Mangekyō Sharingan after Itachi’s death. His eyes granted him the power of Amaterasu and Flame Control.

Additionally, Sasuke also gained the ability to use Full-body Susanoo, making him extremely powerful. In time, his left eye evolved into a Rinnegan, grating him the ultimate power in the process.

Weakest Mangekyō Sharingan Users

Sarada Uchiha

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Sarada awakens her Mangekyō Sharingan

Sarada awakened her Mangekyō Sharingan at 12 years old. She was worried for Boruto’s safety after Ada switched everyone’s memories of him with Kawaki’s, causing them to hunt Boruto down with the intent to kill. With this awakening, Sadara helped to break the Curse of Hatred.

Aside from Shisui, every Uchiha awakened their Mangekyō Sharigan after a traumatic event. Sarada’s Mangekyō awakened out of the love for her friend and fear for his safety. Though Sarada shows a lot of promise, she hasn’t done much with her Mangekyō as yet. However, fans have no doubt that she’ll showcase impressive strength after the time skip.

Black Zetsu

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Black Zetsu from Naruto.

The Black Zetsu was able to manifest a Mangekyō Sharingan by fusing with Obito Uchiha for a time. This gave him limited usage of the Kamui which ultimately allowed Black Zetsu to teleport across vast distances.

His ability to use the Mangekyo didn’t last for too long, though Black Zetsu gained access to even greater power when fusing with Kaguya later on.


<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Danzo looking upset in Naruto.

Danzo Shimura was one of the elders of the Leaf and the founder of the Root Anbu. He was quite a fearsome ninja who had also gained access to multiple Sharingan, including Shisui Uchiha’s Mangekyō Sharingan.

Danzo’s control over this eye, however, wasn’t the best. As explained by Madara, the eye is usually most efficient with the original user. Though he despicably stole several Sharignan eyes, Danzo wasn’t an Uchiha, and thus wasn’t able to fully master the Sharigan, let alone the Mangekyō.

Fugaku Uchiha

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>fugaku uchiha with his eyes closed

Itachi and Sasuke’s father Fugaku was the leader of the Uchiha Clan prior to the Uchiha Clan Massacre. Although little was known about him initially, in Itachi’s story, he was revealed to have the Mangekyō Sharingan well.

The abilities of his eyes remain unknown, however, it is known that his eye was powerful enough to control the Nine-tails, had he willed it.

Izuna Uchiha

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Naruto _ Izuna Uchiha vs Tobirama Senju

Izuna was Madara Uchiha’s brother and one of the most powerful Uchiha Clan members in history. Along with Madara, he was the first Uchiha to awaken the powers of the Mangekyo Sharingan, which he did by killing his best friend.

Unfortunately, the abilities of his eyes aren’t known to date, but he was skilled enough to rise to the top of the clan and fight evenly with Tobirama Senju. Still, his Mangekyō abilities never reached their full potential and he tragically fell in battle at his rival’s hands.

Shisui Uchiha

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Shisui using Susano'o from Naruto

Shisui was one of the very few Uchihas to be spared from the Curse of Hatred. Being thrown into war at quite a young age, Shisui Uchiha awakened his Mangekyō Sharingan before the age of 10, which is a massive feat.

His eyes wielded the Kotoamatsukami and using this power, he could cast a powerful genjutsu capable of manipulating others without them even realizing it. While the ability itself was powerful, Shisui failed to ever demonstrate its proper use. Furthermore, he lost this eye to Danzo, proving once again that he wasn’t as strong as some of the others.

Kakashi Hatake

<!–[if IE 9]> <![endif]–>Kakashi versus Pain

Kakashi gained the Mangekyō Sharingan at the same time as Obito, upon witnessing Rin Nohara’s death. Years later, he gained access to the power of Kamui and mastered it.

Although a strong fighter, Kakashi wasn’t a true Uchiha which meant that he couldn’t use the eye properly. Just using it a few times often immobilized him for days.
