Those who watched Naruto know very well that when we talk about Itachi Mangekyou Sharingan, we immediately imagine the size of the power that this ability has. As we know, in Naruto, Itachi is one of the most skilled characters we've seen, and it was he who demonstrated the real strength of the Mangekyou Sharingan.
Quite briefly about what the Mangekyou Sharingan is, it is nothing less than the most evolved version of the Sharingan. And for it to be awakened, there is a need for its user to go through a great trauma, and Itachi went through several.
However, over the course of Naruto's history, people could see different variations of the Mangekyo Sharingan in different wielders. And that made many fans a little confused about the powers Itachi had access to when awakening this powerful dojutsu.
itachi Mangekyou Sharingan Abilities
I'm going to start talking about Tsukuyomi, which was even the first skill of Itachi's Mangekyou Sharingan that was presented to us. And we are talking about an illusory technique of extremely great power, and which is done with brief eye contact.
However, that brief eye contact causes Itachi to place his target in an agonizing illusion and doesn't stop there. In this agonizing illusion, Itachi manages to control his victim's perception of time. This torture for the victim seems to last several days, but it was actually a few seconds, because as we said, Itachi can control the perception of time.
And one of his victims was Kakashi, where he ended up suffering damage so severe that it was only treated by Tsunade.
Now it's time for us to talk about Amaterasu, which is a well-known technique and as devastating as Tsukuyomi. Amaterasu is described as the highest level fire technique, in which he can create black fire flames that are virtually impossible to extinguish, at least by normal methods.
For you to have an idea, in addition to being practically impossible to extinguish, Amaterasu's flames can burn practically anything. Few techniques were able to prove themselves impervious against such powerful flames, such as, for example, Gaara's Sand shield.
At another time, we saw the Sasuke being able to use Flame Release to manipulate Amaterasu, you know how? Applying shape transformation, where he could also combine with other techniques, for example, Takemikazuchi. Takemikazuchi is an enhanced version of Chidori, but with Amaterasu's flames.
Continuing this subject about Itachi Mangekyou Sharingan and all its techniques, we will now talk about nothing less than Susanoo. This is even a technique that practically all Mangekyou Sharingan users can awaken, and do you know how susanoo happens? In fact and in a very brief way, he is basically the materialization of his chakra in the form of a giant humanoid. And it works in two ways, for the defense of its user and also quite devastating attacks.
It is noteworthy that in the case of Itachi Uchiha, his Susanoo was still capable of wielding the Sword of Totsuka. This sword was capable of sealing away anything it touches, and Yata's Mirror, which reflects the attack of all nature transformations.
An interesting fact about this combination is that it caused Zetsu to declare Itachi invincible.
When was Itachi's Sharingan Awakened?
As we know, the Sharingan is a trademark of the Uchiha Clan, it is so powerful that it made the members fear the Uchihas. Returning to the subject of Itachi, he was such a prodigy of the Uchihas, that he awakened this dojutsu at a frighteningly young age.
And the Sharingan awakening in him happened when he was only 8 years old, and do you know how that happened? He achieved this when he personally saw the death of a very good friend of his, and yes, I am talking about the Shisui Uchiha.
Remembering that a trauma of this caliber, which is witnessing a great friend die, also awakens the Mangekyo Sharingan.
Why did Itachi give Sasuke his eye?
Leaving aside the subject “Itachi Mangekyou Sharingan” let's approach another topic, which also involves Itachi's eye. And yes, we will now reveal to you why Itachi gave his eye to his younger brother, Sasuke Uchiha.
This fact happened in the last seconds of Itachi's life, because as we know, he died after fighting Sasuke. Many even say that he let Sasuke kill him, but that is beside the point at this point. Returning to the subject, Itachi transferred his eye to Sasuke as he knew that the technique had a terminal drawback, but which could be repaired if a transplant from a close relative was performed.
Not to mention that this was a way that Itachi found to protect his brother from Obito, as he programmed Amaterasu. Amaterasu would activate if the eye crossed with Obito.
And here ends another article of ours, where we talk a little about Itachi Mangekyou Sharingan and how this Doujutsu was activated. If you liked what you read, I ask you to share it with all your friends and on all your Social Networks.
