    I know, epic title right? I'm going to make it pretty short and sweet though.

    *I'm using OneManga simply because the image doesn't fuck up-not for translation purposes*

    Should I bother stating the obvious about those eyes? They look like a fusion of the Rin'negan ripples and the Sharingan tomoes, no? Well, that can't be right though? Didn't Rikudou possess the Rin'negan before becoming the Juubi host? No, not necessarily-and here's why.

    The commonly held notion is that the Juubi was placed into a genjutsu to stop his raging and give Rikudou time to perform the sealing jutsu. I'm not going to speculate on the speed of the jutsu, but I don't think it took excessively long-given that Minato performed quite a bit in his last hours and with a raging Kyuubi to contend with(sure, he had a S-T jutsu that didn't hurt).

    What I am going to contend is that Rikudou never placed the Juubi under a genjutsu, and those distinct eyes are in-fact the Juubi eyes. How? It's simple-Kishi shows an entity under genjutsu(usually with a sharingan) only as a plot device, to show the readers it's under genjutsu. I don't think it's stated anywhere that it actually manifests the eyes of the caster. Regardless, if that were the case-why is it not completely Rin'negan eyes?

    It's not completely Rin'negan eyes because it was never under a genjutsu in the first place. Those are the eyes that the Juubi possessed and those are the powers that Rikudou received. Now, here's where things get dicey.....
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I think Rikudou seperated the Light and Dark(yin/yang thing) side of the Juubi-only using the Light side. I think the Juubi, as an all encompassing entity, possessed the powers to create and destroy-the Rin'negan/Sharingan hybrid. Not to say that the neither can do the opposite-just that they were more suited for those purposes.

    This is also why he gave the younger son the title and not the elder-who believed in strength, because he feared he would tap into the darker side of his eye power-the sharingan. I believe his elder son did in fact tap into that power, and that is why his descendants became the Uchiha clan-a clan mired in conflict and bloodshed.

    Id think the Juubis eyes is a combination of the rinnegan, sharingan AND byakugan...
    since
    Byakugan = The general eye
    Sharingan = Tomoes (There are 1 for each tail, if you count the middle one as one aswell)
    Rinnegan = Lines

    Just to clarify: "The Rikudou used an Illusion Camp," believe Rikudou possessed the Rinnegan and the Sharingan, the combination of which, was reflected in the Juubi's lone eye.

    Suigetsu was able to see the Sharingan coated over top of Manda's eye: Chapter 363 (http://m6.mangatoshokan.com/n/naruto/6237/ch363_UK_Page_11.png).

    That's where the theory comes from. In no way am I contesting either notion though - not enough information for me, at the moment.


    Rikudou's reincarnation, the resulting love child of a Senju and Uchiha, or something else entirely - who knows?

    I think it's quite obvious that he only had Rinnegan afterwards because of the image that showed his eyes after he captured the Juubi :

    HawkMan seems to think that the Rinnegan is a power that came from being the Juubi's jinchuuriki.

    Nagato seem to have a pure rinnegan something even the elder brother lacked. Which makes the whole Rinnegan being the power of the Juubi's jinchuuriki.

    I guess what I'm intimating is that both Doujutsus come from the Juubi itself, and in an even more speculative nature- they are but two sides of the Juubi's eye power. Nagato is an enigma, it's hard to explain how he obtained the Rin'negan outside of divination(which just doesn't sit well with me since due to the polytheistic nature of the gods depicted in Naruto). The closest thing that resembles an entity that reigns supreme is the Juubi, so in some shape or form his acquisition is due to that.

    The elder son had an eye power that spiraled into a tomoe, which leads me to believe that he could draw upon both aspects. Given his world veiw though, that power was the answer to the problems ailing their world, he might have been more inclined to draw upon the darker side- the Sharingan.

    Of course, it's possible that Rikudou possessed both Doujutsus and only passed on the Sharingan or a variation of that to his son. We have even less data to support this claim though, since we've never seen him display such a doujutsu. What we do have is a Juubi with a combination of both the Rin'negan and Sharingan, and a Rikudou with only the Rin'negan present. Furthermore, the elder son who possessed his eye power has descendants who focused on the Sharingan aspect of that eye power.

    I agree on some points, but I think both Rikudou and Nagato were simply blessed with Rinnegan. It's been said that Nagato is the reincarnation of Rikudou. If this is true then his eyes should closely match the unaltered eyes of Rikudou. Thus that would mean Rikudou had the Rinnegan before becoming a host for the Juubi.

    I always supported the idea that the Sharingan is a power that came from being the Juubi's host. This power was passed down through one of his sons, but in a dormant state. I also think a jutsu like the Byakugan might have come before the Sharingan (in a person) as Kakashi suggests early in the manga, which makes sense if the Sharingan was dormant.

    I always thought that the Jūbi had the Sharingan and that the ripples were a result of Rikudō Sennin's battle of wills with it. This makes sense too though.

    Nice theory but I think Nagato invalidates it. If Nagato is the reincarnation of RS, he should have his powers without the jyuubi addition. Based on this, it is reasonable to conclude that the rikudou was born with the rinnegan. The jyuubi on the other hand, used the sharingan to cast illusions and that is why nobody could tame it. RS conquered it and got the powers of both the sharingan and the rinnegan.

    Upon having children, the elder son was born with the power of sharinnegan, a combination of both powers. This would explain why Nagato could master all the ninjutsu in the world but not does not have the same extent of control over genjutsu since this was the product of the jyuubi eyes and not the rinnegan originally. Then, the elder son consumed by hatred, relied more on the power of the sharingan and passed that unto his descendants. Over time, they lost the rinnegan but kept the sharingan.

    there's no evidence that Rikudou had the Rinnegan when he was born. the fact that Kishi only showed him with Rinnegan in the picture AFTER he captured the Juubi makes me think that it was Juubi power

    This certainly crossed my mind, but Madara's goals put that to rest. He aims to cast a genjutsu that he can only achieve by becoming the Juubi host. Also, the image is the exact image of the eye the Juubi showcased earlier. That can't be a coincidence.

    Obviously, those eyes are that of the Juubi. The Juubi looks to have possessed both doujutsus, and it was after becoming its host that Rikudou obtained the Rin'negan-and became a living god.
    Except for the fact that Madara aims to become the Juubi host-and the illusion he seeks to cast has the same eyes as that of the Juubi when Rikudou encountered it. If it was indeed a test of will between Rikudou and the Juubi, why is the image for Mugen Tsukyomi depicted in the same manner? Isn't it reasonable to say that is indeed the eye of the Juubi, and that eye power is indeed the powers granted for becoming its host?

    This picture apparently depicts the form of Madara's eyes after becoming the Juubi's host. This is the original sharingan Madara spoke of during his introduction.

    I was under the impression that RS invented ninjutsu thanks to the rinengan, and since he used a ninjutsu (sealing jutsu) to defeat the Juubi, he already had the rinnengan before sealing the beast. Was he that talented that even though he was a normal human he managed to invent ninjutsu from nothing? I think it?s a little more believable if he could invent ninjutsu thanks to a dojutsu.

    The manga says that the sharingan came from the rinnengan, and what you?re doing is telling me that the sharingan came from the Juubi. The moment you accept what the manga has spelled out for you, you?ll see that the tomoes were part of the original rinnengan?s powers that later, with time, developed itself into the sharingan.

    You can read the uchiha tablet with the rinnengan, MS and the sharingan. But why would the RS, who didn?t have the MS or the sharingan, make a tablet that could be read by a sharingan and MS user when he was a rinengan user?
    The most likely scenario was that he made a tablet that only people with his own eyes (rinnengan) could read, but since the sharingan was originated from the rinnengan, it can also read what it says there, although not all of it.

    That's what the myth says.

    Either it's true, or the information passed down through the generations, regarding the Rinnegan, is tied in with Rikudou's deeds.

    Just check out their Databook entries:

    Rinnegan (http://forums.narutofan.com/showpost.php?p=22994402&postcount=319):

    It is said that in times when the world is in disorder, this person is sent down from the heavens to become either a "God of Creation" who will calm the world, or a "Destroyer" who reduce everything to nothing.​

    Rikudou (http://forums.narutofan.com/showpost.php?p=24226448&postcount=413):

    He was said to carry the Rinnegan, and to have been sent by Heaven during times of turmoil. Who he really was: a god of creation or destruction. ​


    Most recently, chapter 467 reveled the reason why Rikudou is considered a God, a heavenly being: He saved the world from the scourge of the Juubi.

    Maybe the Rinnegan is so exalted, and revered as the tool of heaven because the man admired as a God was in possession of it?

    Not to say the Rinnegan isn't amazingly powerful - as we all are well aware - but it's just an idea to toss around.

    -- or, it could just be the tool of heaven!

    When as argument like this is brought up it usually means you have no solid argument to follow through on.

    Well, we've seen Manda and Kyuubi Genjutsu'd and they completely manifested the eyes of the user, so your point is?

    Its is not completely Rin'negan because of either of two possibilities.

    A) The Juubi simply held a super Sharingan and that isnt a Genjutsu at all.

    B) That Rin'negan/Sharingan hybrid IS the complete Rin'negan that Rikudou possessed.

    Right, the super Sharingan is what Rikudou gained from the Juubi.

    There is no Rin'negan/Sharingan hybrid, you keep making this bullshit up. Second, the sealing Jutsu the Rikudou used is still being used today. That Jutsu doesnt separate yin/yang chakra, only Shiki-Fuujin does that.

    None of this holds any substantiated evidence in the manga.

    Ding ding ding! Winner. This is the logic I've constantly used to debate this ridiculous theory, yet it still keeps cropping back up.

    What I find most odd, is Rikudou knew of the Sharingan and Mangekyou, to the point that he even shared the purpose of the later, and left the information to his descendants.

    How is it, that the eye the Juubi possessed - The Mangekyou - its purpose, is to control the Kyuubi?

    You’re right. I never thought of that. He was the one who wrote that you can control the Kyuubi with the MS and that you need to kill a close friend to unlock a new power.

    Or maybe nothing of the sorts was written there. Unfortunately, we don’t know the content.

    Maybe it isn’t, it’s just that the sharingan and MS users who have read the tablet assumed that was all that was written there without knowing there was more information hidden, and to know that info, you need a rinnengan.

    Lovely discusson and I like the theory, though I don't completely agree with it. From what I can understand, the Rikudou Sennin was a ninja of great skill and potency but I can definitely say that his skill must have come from some superhuman source- In other words, his doujutsu, the Rinnegan. So, I truly believe that the only way we can answer this question is to understand the side effects of Bijuu powers on the Human's ability to reproduce. In other words, what would happen if a Jinchuuriki were to reproduce while his Bijuu powers still remained? So far, we can only speculate what would happen, but at this point we can't be sure of anything. Also, we have to know how long the Juubi was sealed within the Rikudou Sennin because, if my memory serves me right, it was said that the Juubi terrorized mankind before the Rikudou Sennin appeared. In addition, there is also the supposed fact that the Byakugan was the ancestor of the Sharingan, which creates a huge contradiction in the storyline. So, until Kishimoto manifests these things to us, I don't think we can truly say anything.
