To awaken the Rinnegan, can you just get any Uchiha's and Senju's chakra, mix them together and get the Rinnegan? Or do you need Ashura's and Indra's in particular (i.e. their reincarnation's)?

Do you still need to go through some very sad or aggreviating situation to awaken it, or do you automatically get it the moment you mix the two chakras together?


To get the rinnegan you need to have the mixture of the Ashura and Indra chakras. As Uchihas are descendants of some of them and the Senju of the others, the mixture of these also allows obtaining it. The clearest example is Madara who uses the chakra of the first Hokage to obtain it.

You do not need any more requirements, but it is not a trivial process Madara itself took more than 10 years to wake up the rinnengan.


Sasuke has a special rinnegan is different and more powerful, this rinnegan is called Magatama Rinnegan. He obtained it by receiving the moon crescent, I think dark, side of Hagaromo's (the Sage of Six Paths) chakra.

  • so any Uchiha who takes a Senju's chakra can have it? So is it like, if you get Ashura and Indra's chakra directly it would be easier rather than their descendent's? – MartianCactus Mar 9 '17 at 13:41
  • Yes, all Uchiha who take a senju chakra can obtain the rinnegan. We cannot know if using the ashura chakra or indra the process of obtaining the rinnegan it is easier or not, but saskue obtain it more fast than madara but is a diferent form. – Gawey Mar 9 '17 at 13:48
  • then why did Madara take Hashirama's senju chakra to get himself the Rinnegan? Couldn't he take some other weaker Senju down and use his chakra instead? – MartianCactus Mar 9 '17 at 15:50
  • @MartianCactus Once Indra and Asura's chakra mix, the new chakra is the sage of six paths chakra (AKA rinnegan). Sharingan might be a requirement though, and probably could be the source of Indra's chakra, but only indra's reincarnates ever even tried. Once awakend, it can be transplated to anyone though. Also Gawey, Its not the Supreme rinnegan, its the Rinne Sharingan. Though sasukes is slighly different, and sometimes called the sharrinegan. – Ryan Mar 9 '17 at 16:19
  • @Ryan Yes Sharingan maybe was a requirement for obtain the Rinnegan. Also Saskue don't have Rinne Sharingan this is completly diferents this is the Rinnengan of Kaguya (輪廻写輪眼, Literally meaning: Saṃsāra Copy Wheel Eye), Sasuke have the Supreme Sharigan (至高の輪廻眼, Shikō no Rinnegan), this Rinnegan have completly diferent patron in the eye, for more reference read the Sasuke Shinden Raikō-hen. – Gawey Mar 9 '17 at 22:41

You will need Uchiha DNA and Senju DNA and it will only work if the user is from the Senju or the Uchiha clan but Nagato Uzumaki had awakened it because Madara gave it to him when he was a child before he died by transplanting his eye to him.
