After Hagoromo Otsutsuki gives his Yin chakra to Sasuke, Sasuke develops a new dojutsu in his left eye.

Is this dojutsu the same one as Kaguya and Madara's third eye?

In both cases, the eyes have circles and tomoes in them.


No, Sasuke's dojutsu is different from Kaguya and Madara's third eye.

Sasuke has the Rinnegan while Kaguya and Madara have the Rinne Sharingan.

Both the dojutsu might look similar in design, but they're not.

enter image description here

A side-by-side comparison of the two dojutsu shows that although they have similar circles, the Rinne-Sharingan has nine tomoe whereas Sasuke's Rinnegan has 6 tomoe.

Another visual difference between the two is the color. Later in the manga, their colors were revealed.

enter image description here - Madara and Kaguya's Rinne Sharingan is red in color.

enter image description here - Sasuke's Rinnegan is purple in color, just like a normal Rinnegan.

Coming to technical terms, the Rinne-Sharingan can be acquired only if the person is the Ten-Tail's jinchuriki. Also, it is seen that the Rinne-Sharingan is activated on the user's forehead as a new eye, unlike how the Rinnegan is attained.

Therefore, it is clear that both the dojutsu are not the same and what Sasuke has is a Rinnegan.

  • It might be interesting to compare them both against the 10tails' eyes – Vogel612 May 12 '15 at 6:39
  • @Vogel612 the Ten Tails has the Rinne Sharingan on its head. – Ero Sɘnnin May 12 '15 at 7:27

I very much think that this is a Rinne-Sharingan, and I'm pretty sure Masashi Kishimoto would agree, but I'm not going to put words in his mouth.

I think it is very much a Rinne-Sharingan but a different kind, because the one Madara had and Kaguya was the same eye. It didn't switch eyes just because it is not the right color or missing a set of tomoe, doesn't mean it's not a Rinne-Sharingan. Think about it, Rinne in Rinnegan and Sharingan because it has tomoe.

    Your answer doesn't suggest anything as it's based on opinion. I've addressed all the details of the tomoe and Color in my answer. Also, if Koshimoto sensei has something to declare, he would just do so. – Ero Sɘnnin Apr 2 at 6:39
