In the fight between Sasuke and Itachi, Itachi said that to get Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan (EMS), he must transplant his brother's eyes that have to be Mangekyou Sharingan (MS). However, Sasuke didn't have MS yet.

So, even if Sasuke did get his normal Sharingan eyes, how could he get the EMS?

  • Never thought about it but just checked maybe it's a plot hole if I didn't overlook something

  • That guy was asking if it has to be ms or just normal sharingan to get ems. What i mean is why did itachi say that he needs to get someones ms to get ems but he was after sasuke that had just normal sharingan Jul 23, 2019 at 21:37

1 Answer 1


Because he actually didn't want them. He was trying to relay that information to Sasuke before his death. He gave that information about EMS to Sasuke so that Sasuke could obtain EMS after his death if he wanted.

Plus Itachi was on the verge of blindness. So even if Sasuke had normal sharingan Itachi could at least have sight, that's a good excuse.
