Sasuke is an important character in the Naruto series and the current Boruto. Many know Sasuke as Naruto’s rival, but he is also one of the best Ninjas that almost destroyed the village seeking power. Not many Ninjas have returned after leaving the village, but Sasuke is one of those few Ninjas who has returned after learning the truth.
However, despite his bitter past, Sasuke’s life changed due to the involvement of Team 7, especially Naruto. We will talk about Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan and how Sasuke obtained it. This will reminds Naruto fans of one of the greatest battles of this series. Sasuke awakened his Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan during Akatsuki’s reign, which was one of Naruto’s best moments.
Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan is one of the most powerful weapons an Uchiha clan member wields after passing many stages. But some Uchiha Clan members have died trying to awaken Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan. Some stages need to be passed to get Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan; if one fails, they lose their eyesight for eternity and end up dying.
But due to vengeance, Sasuke managed to pass all the stages required to awaken Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan. This is because Sasuke believed in himself and wanted to use power. Madara also explained what happened to Uchiha clan members to get Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan.
There are many mysteries behind Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan since not all Uchiha Clan members managed to wield it. Sasuke had his ways of seeking powers, proven when he faced his brother, and he learned that Sharainga’s eyes could reach another stage where he could get Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan. Let’s learn more about Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan below.
How Did Sasuke Get Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan?
This happened during Sasuke Uchiha vs. Itachi Uchiha. During this clan duel, Sasuke begins low but gains an advantage after surpassing his limits. This allowed Sasuke to awaken Mangekyo Sharingan after killing Itachi, his older brother. This new power made Sasuke learn the truth behind his actions.
Itachi Uchiha is the one who played an important role in helping Sasuke to awaken Mangekyou Sharingan. Sasuke also unleashed Amaterasu with one eye, known for burning anything to ashes. This also happened because Sasuke was seeking powers to kill Itachi.
After awakening Mangekyou Sharingan, Sasuke managed to summon Susanoo. Mangekyo Sharingan made Sasuke’s eyes a straight tomoe, allowing him fluidity in his fighting movements. Mangekyo Sharingan itself has a limit; if you use it too much, it will cause blindness. In order to get Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan, another Uchiha’s eyes have to be planted on the person. Sasuke initially hesitates, using Itachi’s eye to gain the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan.
During this duel, we also learn how Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan differs from other Uchiha clans’ techniques. However, Sasuke accepts Itachi’s eye since he has other goals and also to kill his best friends, which makes his Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan more powerful than before.
Sasuke obtained half of Hagoromo Otsutsuki’s chakra, and his left eye evolved into a Rinnegan. The user of Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan is bound to end up obtaining Rinnegan. Only Sasuke and Madara were revealed to awaken the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan amongst the Uchiha Clan member. But Sasuke is the one that holds the strongest Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan.
How Powerful Is Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan?
Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan is known to be the most powerful weapon of the Uchiha Clan; no technique has ever been developed and surpassed. The wielder of Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan can kill any enemy instantly since Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan possesses many abilities, such as Amaterasu, which burns anything into dust.
Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan also grants its wielder the ability to decode and read the Uchiha Clan’s Stone Tablet. One of the Uchiha Clan members, Obito, has revealed that Eternal Mangekyou, Sharingan can decode stone tablets more than the Sharingan but cannot surpass Rinnegan.
Doe Sasuke Still Possess Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan?
Even though Sasuke has lost his Sharingan Eye, he still possesses Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan in his left eye. He can awaken any abilities of Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan using his left eye. Since he has awakened Rinnegan, he can use the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan better than before, as seen in many battles of the current series, Boruto.
