All Kekkei Genkai in Naruto and Naruto Shippuden




What is Kekkei Genkai?

A natural born ability passed down genetically by your family or clan. This has been referred to as a blood line limit on the series.

Types of Kekkei Genkai:


Byakugan: This Special kekkei genkai is one only passed down through the Hyuga clan. The Byakugan eyes appear as clear or white with no pupil visible to the naked eye. When Byakugan eye is activated you can visibly see veins surrounding the eyes exterior. These Hyuga eyes allow the user to see nearly a full 360 degree view with only a small blind spot at the top of the user spinal area. This ability also allows the user to sense movements and attacks inside of that field of vision. Byakugan eyes also allow the user to see through many objects near or far with the range depending on the ability of that individual user. Lastly this ability allows the user to see organs inside an opponent and chakra flow in opponents. In this area of chakra vision the byakugan ability has proven to be even stronger than the sharingan eye.

Hanabi Hyuga is a user of Byakugan. She is an heiress of the Hyuga clan as the younger sister of Hinata Hyuga.


Sharingan Eye
Uchiha Clan Sharingan Eyes

Sharingan: This impeccable kekkei genkai is one only passed down through the Uchiha clan. Unlike the Byakugan the sharingan does not get activated on every member of it clan at birth. The sharingan must be awaken by a strong loss of a loved one or the strong desire to protect. Sharingan eyes are red with a visible black pupil and 1 to 3 tomoe in each of their eyes. When the sharingan is first activated typically there will be just one tomoe and over time and development the other two tomoe appear. When users of the sharingan eye fully mature this is when we see the three tomoe present. The great sharingan eyes allow the user two main abilities. The first is sight, though not as powerful as the Byakugan the Sharingan can see the chakra in others and can see through some objects. These eyes are capable of seeing the opponents moves clearly in a predictive fashion. Secondly activated sharingan eyes allow the user to put their opponent under Genjutsu with merley eye contact. The sharingan user can manipulate a person’s body and mind with this ability. Itachi Uchiha had been feared for being able to control multiple opponents at one time making him infamous for his powerful sharingan eyes.

A great example of the power of the Sharingan eyes is the battle between Kakashi Hatake and Zabuza. At the time Zabuza was a very strong rogue ninja and was part of the infamous Akatsuki group. Even though Kakashi was not part of the hyuga clan and was not born with the natural ability of the sharingan eye he possessed a single eye and had developed his eye over the years. His battle with Zabuza is a prime example of the power a ninja can wield with possession of the sharingan.

Kakashi’s Past and the Sharingan Eye

Kakashi in his younger years was raised by his father Sakumo Hatake. A talented Ninja who was very well known in the shinobi world. Kakashi at this early age was very much molded by his father’s perspectives on the definition of a successful ninja. He entered the Academy and was soon considered to be prodigy by his teachers. His peers looked up to him and due to his young success he was very popular. At the young age of 5 Kakashi graduated from the Academy in just one short year.
After becoming a genin, Kakashi Hatake was put on team with Rin Nohara and Obito Uchiha. In the early stages of training together it took time for Kakashi to open up to the idea of teamwork and relying on his teammates to get a job done. He was very much used to working alone in his victories.
After a short period of training Kakashi, Rin, and Obito known as team Minato where sent on a mission during the third shinobi war. Kakkashi being only 12 at the time was promoted to jonin and meant that he was now in charge of his team for their mission. Due to the awkward relationship between Kakashi and Obito when Kakashi was promoted Obito forgot to get him a gift in celebration of his promotion. Regardless of the fact they swiftly left for their mission.
In their attempt for this mission the enemy takes Rin captive. Obito quickly suggests to Kakashi that they should rescue Rin but Kakashi does not agree. He has been raised to complete a mission by Sakumo even if it means looking team members along the way. The mission to Kakashi is more important. Kakashi leaves to complete the mission on his own as he and Obito did not agree on abandoning Rin. But shortly after the fact Kakashi returns to assist Obito in rescuing Rin. Kakashi makes it just in time to save Obito from the enemy Taiseki with his ability white light chakra sabre that his father Sakumo passed down to him.
During this epic battle Kakashi’s left eye was hurt badly. They found Rin in cave near by but sadly it was a trap from Taiseki. He tried to cave in Kakashi but Obito pushed his out of harms way and ended up under the large boulder himself. In a true act of selflessness Obito knew he was done for and gifted Kakashi his Sharingan eye. The cave was completely cavin in and Kakashi did as Obito asked, he saved himself and Rin as the cave completely collapsed.
