The Uchiha Clan
of The Hidden Leaf Village
Doujutsu: The Sharingan
- Soon after the death of Hihoni, the Fire Disciple, the Hyuga Clan, as the direct descendants of Hamura Ōtsutsuki, acquired dominion over the Land of Fire. As one of the oldest clans in existence, the Hyuga were easily able to maintain their rule over what was, at the time, a vast empire, expanding beyond the Land of Fire and into the Lands of Rivers and of Wind. This strong rule continued for many decades before the story of the Uchiha began, when a boy was born to one of the branching families of the Hyuga, in the Western Land of Fire. Hideshi Hyuga was the child’s name, and like many Branch House Hyuga, he was unable to awaken the Byakugan. No members of the clan thought anything of this, for it was common, and assigned Hideshi to serve under one of the younger Main House Hyuga.
Years passed and Hideshi's life was nothing more than one of dutiful servitude, that is, until he entered young adulthood. A training accident caused the sudden death of another Branch House Hyuga, a friend to Hideshi, triggering the activation of his Byakugan. It was no ordinary Byakugan, however, for his face had none of the bulging in the veins surrounding his eyes, and though there was still no pupil, his irises were blood red. So awed was the young man in his newfound power that he told all he could. Elders of the Land of Fire soon received word of this strange Byakugan, and upon careful deliberation, they unanimously determined that it was a perversion of their sacred Doujutsu. Rumors started to spread soon after, with the once unimportant, unheard of, and loved Hideshi becoming known as the demon of the Hyuga. Those closest to him began to shun him, as well as many others, creating a deep sadness within him that fully cultivated when an order had been put out for his death by the leaders of the clan.
Hideshi was warned beforehand and, feeling terribly betrayed, fled from his home into the dense forests of the Land of Fire. Many other Hyuga joined him, for they were also members of the Branch House that had not been blessed with the Byakugan. Away from his clan and from the immediate danger, he decided to never use his crimson eyes again, for fear that word of his existence might spread and lead the Hyuga assassins to him. This was unfortunate, for while what is now known as the Tomoeless Sharingan had none of the Byakugan’s insight, it could visualize chakra. None were able to recognize it, and this secret is still kept isolated to those leading the clan, but this was not the result of some mutation. Over the years, various leaders and head figures in the Uchiha have speculated that their Doujutsu is the result of dormant genes passed throughout the earliest days of the Hyuga, coming from Hamura and his mother, Kaguya, who possessed the Rinne Sharingan. This secretive information has not been proven, of course, and is known only to the leaders of the clan, as is the existence of the Juubi and its power.
Soon after Hideshi fled, those designated to cleanse the clan of his blasphemous perversion slaughtered all of the Branch Houses in any way related to him. They were successful in this, for no mutation like the Sharingan has ever since developed from a Hyuga, securing Hideshi Hyuga’s title as the progenitor of the Uchiha.
Several weeks of wandering through the forests brought Hideshi's group to an unnamed small village on the Eastern shoreline of the Land of Fire. They were graciously accepted by the peaceful and caring populace, taken in not as the outcasts they were, but as welcomed guests and beloved family. The forsaken Hyuga were astonished by their kindness, but they accepted it with gratitude, settling in with the people there and telling none of their past, nor their surnames. Instead, Hideshi chose a new name for his people, taking on proudly a nickname he'd earned from his former master: Uchiha. It was joke between the two, since Hideshi was never particularly skilled in Taijutsu, and he would often use a warfan to imitate the Vacuum Palms of his master. It didn't mean much back then, but now that he was outcast from his home, it reminded him of fonder memories, and it would serve to mask their presence for the time being. The other members of his group adopted that surname as well, for the Hyuga Clan were still the rulers of a vast empire spanning more than just that Land, so they knew that they must take great care if they wished to survive.
Hideshi met a young girl in that small village, Asumi, and soon fell in love with her. Years later, the two were wed and built their own residence in an isolated portion of the forest, several days’ walk from the village where they had first met. Asumi bore Hideshi three sons. As the children grew in size, Hideshi grew in happiness, until he had eventually forgotten the pain caused him by those he’d once called family. He was then of sufficient peace to share his story with his wife and his children, and he grew more comfortable in his blessed life.
It was not to last, however. The Hyuga were eventually able to locate Hideshi and his little home in the woods. A group of assassins assaulted his home in the dead of night, with every intent to slaughter the evil perverter and his mutated offspring, but at the cost of his life, Hideshi was able to ensure the escape of his wife and children. They fled to the village of Asumi’s childhood, and were given refuge there, safety from the Hyuga. The villagers and the other Uchiha worked diligently to keep her and her children’s existence secret. The seeds planted by the story of Hideshi were grown in full with this event, sparking in his three sons the Curse of Hatred passed throughout the generations of the Uchiha Clan.
All of Hideshi’s children manifested his same Tomoeless Sharingan the night they’d heard their father’s dying screams, and later began families of their own. What was once a scarce recessive gene had become overwhelmingly dominant, spurring the rapid spread of the Uchiha Kekkei Genkai with every new birth of Hideshi’s line. Uchiha from the lines of his friends and family that accompanied him on his exile began to show signs of the same mutation, and though their eyes were not as advanced as those of the main line, they were greater in number. The Uchiha lived in secrecy, hiding from the powerful Hyuga that continued to hunt them, while training to one day combat their hunters. Hideshi had forsaken the Gentle Fist of his clan by taking up and mastering Fire Release and various weapons, particularly swords and shuriken. His descendants followed a similar path, eventually developing a natural talent for Katon. As the Clan grew and strengthened, so, too, did their Sharingan. It developed a pupil, and several generations later, a tomoe.
By the time their Doujutsu had evolved the potential for Tomoe Two, the Uchiha had become widespread throughout the Land of Fire, hiding in plain sight among the populace, using their bloodline only in secret. They kept to themselves, awaiting the call of their leader, the line of Hideshi’s eldest, to strike the Hyuga and claim freedom from the endless persecution that awaited any unlucky or careless Uchiha that were discovered by the Hyuga. This time came soon, with the premature death of the Hyuga Emperor and the disputed succession that followed, which caused a brief time of turmoil in the Empire. Rikuto Uchiha called the clan to war, and they spurred the greatest uprising that the world had ever seen.
Word of this war reached the Land of Wind almost as soon as it had begun, for they were already in the works of starting their own rebellion. An alliance was quickly made between the rebel clans of the Wind and Rikuto Uchiha to fight the Hyuga as one. Faced with a two-pronged assault from both sides, the Hyuga empire crumbled, and they were forced to relinquish the Land of Wind in order to reinforce their control over the Land of Fire, but the Uchiha were not as weak as they once were. With the abilities of what was finally officially named the Sharingan, the Uchiha were able to hold their own against what was once the strongest clan in all of creation. This was when the Hyuga began to acknowledge the power of the Uchiha, and granted them a portion of the Land of Fire in exchange for peace. The Uchiha agreed.
The conflict of the Uchiha and the Hyuga had both allowed and stunted the growth of the other clans of the Land of Fire. No longer were they under the Hyuga’s thumb, but they also were kept to only certain areas, not by force, but by choice, to avoid the devastation that the battling Uchiha and Hyuga caused. It was this constant war that kept most other invading forces away, frightened by the thought of a unified Hyuga and Uchiha that might result from a foreign invasion. The Tetsudashi were exception to this, though they soon learned what everyone else knew: the Land of Fire was not to be trifled with. When the Iron Empire invaded the lands of the Uchiha, the Hyuga joined in defense, and the two expelled the enemy force from their land.
This was not a path that lead to peace, or at least, not one that the Hyuga favored. The Uchiha presence had continued to grow and under the rule of Kazuya Uchiha, whose namesake would become the First Hokage. He was the first to unlock the Third Tomoe, and with his unsurpassed skill he was undefeated in combat. It was his leadership, however, that spurned his greatest creation: The Scarlet Kingdom. This kingdom spread the rule of the Uchiha across the entirety of the Land of Fire, calling for the fealty of Hyuga and Senju alike, but it was not to last. In his later years, Kazuya Uchiha was assassinated by a group still unknown to this day, and with the loss of his leadership, the Scarlet Kingdom fell apart.
A similar leader was born unto the Hyuga Clan and, once they had reclaimed much of their lands, he engaged in a war to retake even more from the Uchiha. This proved successful, in the end, for while the Uchiha were clever and strategic, Hiyoto Hyuga was their better, and with his infamous Gambit, he was victorious. He then proposed an agreement for the Uchiha to surrender their holdings in the Eastern Land of Fire or else face further humiliation in battle. They agreed, begrudgingly, and were left with only the Southwest, while the Hyuga were able to solidify their holdings throughout the rest of the Land.
The Senju were the primary of the uninvolved clans, and in their considerable power, they were able to occasionally interfere with the battles of the Hyuga and the Uchiha. They held none of the rivalrous feelings of either clan, and because of that, devoted their strength to protecting those caught up in the great conflict. The Uchiha and the Hyuga might have even noticed the involvement of the Senju and acted upon it, were they not so obsessed with destroying the other. The Uchiha curse of hatred ran deep, and with every move they made, the Hyuga grew just as hostile.
When the Kazehana Empire acquired a taste for the Land of Fire, it was the small section of Uchiha-controlled lands that they targeted first. The Senju were still loyal to the Uchiha, however, and came to their aid in a successful, short-lived war to repel the invaders. The Hyuga eagerly awaited the war's end and, when the peace agreement was official, immediately attacked what they thought was a weakened Uchiha force, but the Senju came to the Uchiha's aid once more, beginning what was to be a long war with no sustainable victories on either side. The Senju broke their truce then, and focused their involvement in the defense of smaller clans and people that were caught in the crosshairs of the great conflict.
Neither side of this war was able to gain a strong advantage against the other. Though peace treaties were signed, they never lasted. Though lands were claimed, they were lost. No side's victory held any meaning to the other and truces swayed back and forth, but the key event throughout all of this was one of the greatest betrayals in history. The Uchiha have always borne a grudge against the Hyuga for their bloodied origin and the many conflicts since, but never against the Senju, until a particularly dark night in clan history. The Hyuga had entered into another bloody conflict with the Uchiha, so the Senju joined the latter in the defense of their lands.
Those intentions were not pure, however, for while the Senju agreed to peace with the Uchiha and fought fiercely against the Hyuga, they sought a prize of their own. In the dead of night, during the reign of Kenshin Uchiha, a group of Senju assassins stole through the castle and slew the Uchiha leader and his entire family. The murderers were captured and interrogated harshly, for the Sharingan had long since made its progression to its Third Tomoe, and that great power was leveled fully upon those Senju invaders. They had accepted a bounty from the Hyuga to slaughter the royal family, and this event not only burned the fires of war ever brighter, it directed the Uchiha hatred to the Senju of the Forest, forever ending their alliance.
The war continued on, and the Senju worked to fight alongside third parties to fight off Uchiha and Hyuga alike, all while lining their coffers, while the Uchiha and Hyuga continued their ages long blood feud that only came to a stop long after the Senju had grown weary of the fighting and made peace with other clans in the Land of Fire. It was only because of a single breakthrough that a miraculous peace occurred, copying the actions of other nations that seemed impossible for the two warring clans until one event.
Jinichi was the current leader of the Uchiha Clan, and like his predecessor’s before him, he was fully devoted to the downfall of the Hyuga, and fought with great ferocity to that effect. Also like all of his predecessors, Jinichi fathered three sons –a trait of all those of Hideshi’s eldest line. The first of these sons was Kazuya, followed one year later by Kazuo, and another three years by Kazutoshi. These boys were born with the full talent of the Uchiha Clan, widely considered geniuses by all of their brethren. This was not uncommon of those born of the direct bloodline.
When Kazuya was thirteen years of age, he was forced to remain at the camp with his mother while his father and brothers went out and fought a large scale battle against the Hyuga. The boy was too sick to fight, and unfortunately, Jinichi fell during the battle. Kazuo and Kazutoshi returned, giving this news to their mother and elder brother, who was beside himself with grief. So broken was Kazuya, who was closest above all other to his beloved father, that he fled from the clan without a word.
With Kazuya gone, Kazuo was next in line to lead the clan. However, because he was only twelve years old, Jinpachi, Jinichi’s younger brother, was chosen to guide the clan until Kazuo was of age. Five years went by and the war had begun to finally turn in the Uchiha’s favor. Over the years, countless lives had been lost on both sides, with the advantage initially with the Hyuga but ever so slightly balancing out. However, when Kazuo and Kazutoshi awakened the first Mangekyou Sharingan, the clan was given an immediate advantage. By the age of seventeen, Kazuo finally took over from his uncle as the leader of the Uchiha, and in a ferocity that could only be inherited from his father, he began a war for extinction against the Hyuga.
The largest of these battles was to be one to end the war, though it was stopped before it had ever begun. Ten years after leaving, a twenty-three year old Kazuya finally returned to his clan, seemingly in much greater wisdom than his elders. Kazuo and Kazutoshi welcomed their older brother with open arms, and happily invited him into the final meeting before the battle. They were poised to strike the current location of the Hyuga leader, a small village in a forested area on the bottom side of a fairly large cliff. This meeting was to determine the exact details of the strike, and how best to eliminate the enemy with minimal casualties, using the element of surprise as best they could.
To Kazuo’s dismay, Kazuya disagreed with the plan and the war entirely. He held views similar to the Senju, who had obviously met with not long before his return. Kazuya immediately challenged his brother for leadership of the clan, as was his right as eldest. Kazuo agreed, and though he would not use his Mangekyou against his dear brother, he was still extremely powerful in his own right, but Kazuya emerged victorious. The new head of the Uchiha immediately departed, leaving Kazuo in command with orders to hold their position.
Kazuya returned to a sundered landscape. The Hyuga had found the Uchiha and struck first, spurring a massive battle in the latter’s camp. Kazuya and the Senju head immediately joined the fray, forcing the Hyuga to fall back. In the aftermath of the battle, Kazuya discovered that his youngest brother, Kazutoshi, had died in the battle, alongside dozens of Uchiha. With spurring emotion and conviction, Kazuya managed to convince his clan to cease the endless violence with the Hyuga and to make peace. Though there many in the clan who had long since felt that way, only then had it begun to take root among the majority of the clan, and they spoke in debate with each other over the merits of the Senju’s original and longstanding offer.
While the Uchiha discussed their thoughts among themselves, Kazuya and the Senju leader gave chase to the Hyuga, eventually finding themselves in the small village that had been all but destroyed by an outraged Kazuo several hours prior. The two met with the leader of the Hyuga Clan, and through deliberation at great length, the Hyuga finally agreed to terms of peace, due in no small part to the Senju leader’s passionate words. The next day, the leaders of the Senju, the Hyuga, and the Uchiha gathered in a ceremony to both mourn the dead and celebrate the union of their clans. This was the day that Konohagakure had been founded.
Kazutoshi was buried in the forest, near the destroyed village, and it was that site which Kazuya and Kazuo constructed the Uchiha Clan District when Konohagakure was being built. Beneath the Uchiha cemetery, the Uchiha brothers made the Naka Shrine, a secret meeting place for the highest ranking Uchiha, thus far including only Kazuya and Kazuo, who also wrote upon a stone tablet all of the secrets of their clan, passed down by generations upon generations of Uchiha leaders. The two also encrypted this tablet, limiting what can be read based on the level of Sharingan possessed by the person reading it.
Kazuya was elected the First Hokage, at the surprisingly compelling request of the Senju Clan Leader, one of the members of the Konoha Council, comprised of the leaders of each of the Clans: Senju, Hyuga, Uchiha, Aburame, Akimichi, Nara, and Yamanaka. Thus, though Kazuya was still leader of the Uchiha, his focus was now diverted into village affairs as well, causing Kazuo to take charge when his elder brother is too busy handling their new home.
As all of the villages began to form, Kazuya maintained dominion over the Land of Fire, devoted to keeping peace for his home and handling disputes between the clans. While his concern does not particularly extend beyond the Land of Fire, he does seek to prevent the kind of empires like the Kazehana and the early days of the Hyuga, therefore, he actively works to deter invasions of other lands by villages. So long as the power of the Uchiha supports him, he cannot fail.
Clan/Bloodline Traits & Characteristics
Uchiha are most often born with black eyes and black hair, with fair skin and complexion, similar to the royalty of real world ancient Japan. In clothing, Uchiha often prefer the colors of black or blue, with the symbol of their Clan crested somewhere on the back.
The overall personality of the Uchiha is one shadowed in darkness. Their past puts them at odds with the Hyuga, a strained relationship that persists in many members to present day. Their Doujutsu, a power based on emotional pain and loss, propagates throughout generations a subconscious attachment to general pain and loss, causing most Uchiha to exhibit a darker, more troubled personality.
Bloodline Description & Abilities
The Sharingan is a powerful Doujutsu greatly feared by those few that have witnessed it and lived. It progresses through a number of stages marked by the amount of tomoe present within the eye.
The initial stage of the Sharingan is born of powerful emotions regarding a person precious to them. This can be negative, as in the suffering of the loss of a friend or ally, or even positive, as in the strong desire to protect or reunite with that friend. It is perhaps because of this requirement for their innate power that Uchiha are known as an emotional Clan, with eyes that reflect the heart. Tomoe One requires 500 Experience to unlock, after which point the period of activation can be described at the player's whim. The actual scenario does not need to occur In Character for the Doujutsu to be awakened, and in fact may not be mentioned at all, should the player so choose. The abilities granted by this awakening lay the ground work for the more powerful potential unleashed at later stages: when activated, the Tomoe One Sharingan increases Perception by two + and affords visualization of chakra. This Perception increase relates only to the Uchiha's ability to see higher speed movement and affords no other perks, such as additional Perception Saves. Eyesight with the Sharingan is as though seeing through a shade of red. All colors can still be made out, but it may prove initially difficult to sort through, especially with the luminous and varying shades of blue that chakra presents.
Ascending beyond the first level awakens a second tomoe. It is not born of such need as Tomoe One, rather is generally unlocked with increased use and pushing the limits of the Sharingan. 500 Experience is required to attain the second tomoe, which builds upon the abilities of the first: beginning with the ability to clearly make out and understand any movements within the Uchiha's improved Perception, even things as small as lip or pencil movements, and then by granting access to the Copy Technique, one of the fundamental attributes of the Sharingan. Visualization of chakra improves to discernment, separating chakra into colors varying in shade by the person's natural alignment and in color by the element or style being used. These colors may appear slightly different to each individual Uchiha, but all are able to determine the nature all the same.
The penultimate form of the Sharingan is Tomoe Three, commonly considered the final step in an Uchiha's maturity. Those with Tomoe Three unlocked are the ones known and feared in battle, rivaled by few and envied by many. It adds the final building block to the Sharingan's arsenal: the infamous Genjutsu: Sharingan technique. Additionally, chakra can now be seen through small barriers, such as the human body or most obstructions not particularly thick, as well as being able to distinguish most chakra constructs. The eye of insight, as it's commonly known, heightens to the point of capturing all movements up to one tier of Perception higher. This insight even affords an unnatural prediction ability: the Sharingan is capable of detecting even the smallest muscle movements within its Perception range and determine precisely what the target is about to do, allowing the user to react accordingly. 1000 Experience is the cost of progression. Most will find that it is well worth the price.
A mature, powerful Uchiha may find a peak at Tomoe Three, with abilities of tremendous power in their own right, but a select few find themselves walking a much harder path. The path to power is paved with heartache and troubles, as the Mangekyou, the height of Uchiha prominence, comes only with the greatest of pains, of witnessing the death of one that the Uchiha truly loves. While this is a power that many would surely seek, it's cost is often considered far too great, and so the eyes reflecting a pattern of the Uchiha's inner turmoil are looked upon not as a fearful weapon, as those outside of the clan see them, but as a sign of the intense pain that the Uchiha has suffered. The Mangekyou's pattern is unique to the individual and may be similar to another, but is never quite the same, for it is based wholly upon the pain of the loss, which affects every individual differently. This can come upon investing 3000 Experience points, after which the situation may be described at will, if at all, by the player, as with the Tomoe One. Alternatively, if an Uchiha with at least Tomoe One witnesses the death of a loved one that is also a Player Character, the Sharingan will instantly mature to Tomoe Three, any loss of sight will be restored, and the Mangekyou will be unlocked, regardless of how much Experience has been invested or what caused the (near) blindness. However, if the Sharingan is not Tomoe Three, 3000 Experience Points will need to be invested before it can be used. While no new inherent abilities are afforded, the Mangekyou does grant access to one unique technique per eye, in addition to one dual technique per two Mangekyou: Susano'o. The techniques vary upon users and can be mixed and matched, and though Susano'o is the most common dual Mangekyou technique, some Uchiha may develop an alternative technique.
So long as there are limits, there will be those seeking to overcome them. This extends even to the blindness of the Mangekyou, where individuals seeking to restore what they have surrendered for power may seek out the eyes of others to restore their sight. While this works, it can be a complicated process. Once blind, the Mangekyou loses access to all of its abilities save only the dual technique, assuming it, like Susano'o, does not explicitly require sight. That technique can be used with any eyes or none at all, so in essence, those eyes are useless and will need to be replaced. Any Sharingan that is not Mangekyou, as in Tomoe One, Two, Three, or Eternal Mangekyou, will not be compatible and, therefore, will not result in the creation of a new Eternal Mangekyou. Rather, the new eyes will function exactly as they have in their original owner. A Mangekyou combined with the old eyes and then implanted into the blinded Uchiha will form a bond, overriding the new eyes' abilities with that of the Uchiha's original Mangekyou and restoring sight completely, combining patterns to create an Eternal Mangekyou. Even Mangekyou that have been blinded can be used for this process, as the advancement of stages functions as restoration, as seen in the case of the Mangekyou. There are two ways to achieve this, the first is by taking the Mangekyou of another Player Character. Eye swapping is not allowed. The second Option to unlock EMS is that an Uchiha can pay 2K exp to unlock a staff controlled S-Class Uchiha NPC fight. If they emerge victorious from this battle, they will be able to use the NPC's eyes to unlock EMS.
Bloodline Limits & Drawbacks
Even the mighty Sharingan of the Uchiha Clan, once feared as the most powerful group in existence, is not without fault. The Doujutsu itself drains the Uchiha 0.2 points of Stamina per post. This is insignificant for most users, but it can make using the Sharingan tricky for those with smaller reserves.
Another tricky aspect that none can avoid are the adjustment periods for the rapid changes made when a tomoe is added. With chakra, it becomes difficult to discern from the new red-based color palette through which Tomoe One perceives the world. Even once that adjustment is complete, different shades of chakra relating to alignment will yet be impossible to truly discern, only guess at, until Tomoe Two is unlocked. Once that happens, the colors divide again to represent elements, style, and nature, in addition to alignment. The sheer amount of colors will be overwhelming for a while, but eventually the user will adjust, given enough time. Tomoe Three is perhaps the hardest change to accommodate, as the varying potency and brightness of chakra colors that represent their distance from the Uchiha and any obstructions between the two can be extremely difficult to accurately determine.
Perception is more dangerous than chakra visualization for the simple fact that seeing everything in the world with more acuity will, logically, cause everything to look slower than before. Things that once moved faster than the Uchiha could follow with his eyes suddenly appear to become slower once the Sharingan advances. The disparity in what was seen as opposed to what is now seen with a new tomoe naturally causes the Uchiha's brain to act as if the body as a whole is faster than it really is. They will try to react to things their eye can follow, only to realize their body can't keep up and inevitably fail, which can sometimes have fatal consequences. This is a major change with Tomoe One, but is even more significant with Tomoe Three, when the Uchiha experiences the most changes.
These adjustment periods last longer for some people, but generally take a few days In Character to complete.
What doesn't end is the fallacy of prediction. The Tomoe Three Sharingan may be able to predict any movement with the most deadly accuracy using only the faintest of tells, but it is accurate to a fault. When one target appears to be moving in two or more separate directions, the Sharingan will accurately predict both movements, but at the exact same time. The eyes become confused and cannot discern which movement path belongs to the target, relying solely on the Uchiha's natural Perception for prediction. Note that the Uchiha can still see with the improved Perception of Tomoe Three, but as that improvement does not grant anything beyond following speed with the eyes, it does not aid in the prediction of movements. Normally, the eye of insight's ability to predict all things seen compensates well for this, but seeing more than one future for one target skews that.
Using the Dual Mangekyou Technique may not require a pair of Sharingan to use, but does necessitate that the Uchiha have awakened a pair of Mangekyou, a pair being two that specifically belong to each other and were awakened together. Additionally, without the eyes to which that Dual Mangekyou Technique belongs, no further progress can be made in the technique; it will remain at whatever stage it was when the eyes were removed.
Once an Eternal Mangekyou has been created within an Uchiha, it cannot be again. If an Uchiha loses those eyes and implants another, regular Mangekyou, it will not become Eternal and will simply function as it did in the original user, complete with whatever deterioration has occurred. Additionally, if a Mangekyou has not been created at all, then an Eternal Mangekyou is impossible until that happens, though the eyes that awaken need not be their own.
Those that wish to progress beyond the norm of Tomoe Three's Eye of Insight may train further to unlock the powerful, unique abilities that follow:
Activation Cost: None
Upkeep Cost: 0.1
Classification: Group Exclusive (Uchiha)
Requirements: Tomoe Three Sharingan
Hand Seals: None
Description: Advancing the Sharingan's natural perception of chakra to a greater extent affords the user keen discernment not normally present in the Doujutsu's Eye of Insight. Whereas most ocular Kekkei Genkai, including even the Byakugan, cannot recognize the difference between constructs as complex as shadow clones and real people or things, particularly those that create such constructs, a fully matured and further developed Sharingan can. By simply looking upon the chakra of any such creation, the Tomoe Three Sharingan can immediately identify the chakra make-up and thus determine the difference between even shadow clones and actual people.
Weaknesses: This is a progression ability and as such costs 250 Experience Points to learn, after achieving Tomoe Three Sharingan.
Activation Cost: None
Upkeep Cost: 0.1
Classification: Group Exclusive (Uchiha)
Requirements: Tomoe Three Sharingan
Hand Seals: None
Description: Where Discernment emphasizes perception of chakra, Precision emphasizes reality, seeing the finer details not in the makeup of energy, but in all things that are corporeal. With enough training, the Sharingan can perceive on a continuously smaller level, until eventually it can clearly see even the cells that make up all living things, an ability previously exclusive to such insightful Doujutsu as the Byakugan. Unlike the Byakugan, this ability cannot be used to see things outside of one's range of vision, but it grants near unparalleled vision all the same.
Weaknesses: . While this ability is being used, the user's vision shifts to the enhanced level desired, preventing sight in any other zoom, such as basic vision, potentially making the user blind to things happening around him.
Activation Cost: 5
Upkeep Cost: 2
Classification: Group Exclusive (Uchiha)
Requirements: Tomoe Three Sharingan
Parent Technique: Genjutsu: Sharingan
Hand Seals: None
Description: The parent technique emphasizes the infiltration of enemy minds to cause one of a number of effects, including the compulsive divulging of information. With enough practice in this function, the eye becomes more acclimated to sifting through the minds of its prey, to the point that it no longer needs to enact an illusion that yields information, but can find that information itself. Similar to the Psycho Mind Transmission technique, Extraction allows a Sharingan to comb through the memories of the target. As a perceptive Doujutsu, the Sharingan is slightly more effective in that it can more quickly identify key memories, finding anything relating to the user's query near instantaneously. This is a more specialized version of mind reading, however, in that it only yields information being sought, and unlike Psycho Mind Transmission, will not disclose anything not actively being sought. Information is processed via this technique at the following rates based on the user's Intelligence, though note that it will immediately find the source material and the user need not comb through all memories, meaning this technique usually finishes within a post.
C-Tier: a day per post
B-Tier: a week per post
A-Tier: a month per post
S-Tier: six months per post
If the target of this technique is conscious and able to mentally fight the user, this technique will take much longer, reducing those rates by one level and making C-Tier Intelligence unable to even use this technique.
Weaknesses: As a progression ability, this takes 250 Experience to learn after achieving Tomoe Three.
