In the manga, Indra is shown with his Mangekyo Sharingan:

But in the anime, his eyes are like:

Which one is his actual Mangekyo Sharingan? If it is the one in the anime, then he has the same Mangekyo Sharingan as Sasuke. Then is it true that all Uchihas have unique Mangekyo Sharingans?

  • Well i don't know much of the manga but in picture 2 that is his eternal mangekyo sharingan and in picture one i think it's the sharingan but not sure :/ – YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE May 4 '17 at 6:33
  • Could you please provide the manga chapter from which the first picture has been taken from? – Ero Sɘnnin May 4 '17 at 11:59

The anime episode showing Indra having Sasuke's eyes is a filler episode (see the list here). Trust the manga instead, which is canon. There are two reasons why the producers did changed it in the anime:

  1. They got lazy, or they didn't have enough time to think of a unique mangekyo sharingan ability and animate the effects. So they slapped Sasuke's eyes onto Indra and called it a day.

  2. Indra having Sasuke's eyes symbolizes how Sasuke is the reincarnation of Indra. Indra's personality, physical prowess, and intelligence were all passed down to him. So it makes sense that the MS was also passed down too.

  • Indra did have Sharingan, did you not see the picture on top? – Jeffery Tang May 4 '17 at 15:52
  • You can find his MS here: naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Mangeky%C5%8D_Sharingan – Jeffery Tang May 4 '17 at 15:54
  • Alright, I was wrong, That supposedly is a Mangekyou. It was Hagoromo who did not have the sharingan at all, but was given it in the anime. – Ryan May 4 '17 at 15:59
  • I think the second reason is accurate. Thanks! – Troll dé Mage May 5 '17 at 0:43
  • I personally don't like the second reason though, cuz then why does itachi get amaterasu? and what about madara, another indra reincarnate, does he get it? – Jeffery Tang May 5 '17 at 10:01

Yeah, the will definitely be a few differences between the anime itself and the manga, for example, in the anime "one piece" there is a character named "Zoro," but in the manga, his name is "Solo." See the difference. Basically it really is for you to decide.

  • that would be in the English DUB only. In the Subbed versions, they use the actual names, but due to Japaneese pronunciation, the names sound different. the Main character of One piece, Luffy, for instance, is pronounced Ruffy, Because L sounds are difficult for japaneese speakers to pronounce, or something like that. The dubs took the pronunciation as the name, rather than the actual written name. The Op is talking about FIller episodes, which are a whole other story, better explained by Jerffery Tangs answer. – Ryan May 15 '17 at 15:38

no. It says that all UCHIHA have different Mangekyou Sharingan. But Indra is an Otsutsuki, so that means that it must be different

    Indra is technically the first Uchiha. – Ero Sɘnnin Aug 11 '19 at 19:29
