A look at one of the famous and strongest dojutsu in Naruto Shippuden plus, can this also be considered as a Kekkei Genkai?
Naruto Shippuden Manga may have ended but the memory is still fresh in our head, our favorite shinobi, chapter and many other nostalgic moments.
On this article, we will talk about the Rinnegan in the Naruto Shippuden whether it is a Kekkei Genkai or not and why it is the strongest Dojutsu.
Rinnegan as the strongest dojutsu (eye technique) in Naruto Shippuden
According to NarutoHurricane, the first person to ever possess the Rinnegan in Naruto Shippuden is none other than the Rikudou Sennin (or commonly known as the Sage of the Six Path).
If you are a big fan of Naruto, you would know that anything?or any jutsu, dojutsu or kekkei genkai?that originated from the Otsutsuki is considered to be godly, and the Rinnegan is the perfect example for that.
As explained on NarutoHurricane, the user of this Dojutsu can master any kind of jutsu easily and has perfect control over the six chakra elements (fire, earth, water, lightning, wind, Yin and Yang).
Not just the six elements though, the Rinnegan can also grant its user the ability to control and use the Six Paths Technique (or 7 rather, including the outer path). Here is the Seven Paths Technique as posted on the Naruto Subreddit:
- Deva Path ? Pretty much like controlling gravity, the user can manipulate both attractive and repulsive force.
- Asura Path ? With this path, the user can transform any part of his body into a weapon or grow an additional limb.
- Human Path ? This path can grant its user the ability to read another person?s mind and extract its soul from its body.
- Animal Path ? Can also be considered as the Summoner?s path because with this, the user can freely summon different kinds of creatures.
- Preta Path ? Chakra Absorption is the power that you can gain with the Preta Path.
- Naraka Path ? This path can allow the user to summon and control the King of Hell.
- Outer Path ? This one will basically turn you into a real God. Giving you full control over life and death.
Naruto Shippuden Rinnegan, is it a Kekkei Genkai? And if so, is it the strongest?
As explained in the Naruto Wikia, the Kekkei Genkai (or Bloodline Limit) is an ability that is passed down genetically from one generation to another. Bloodline Limit abilities can also work together with eye techniques or Dojutsu like the Sharingan, Byakugan and Rinnegan. So to sum it up, yes, Rinnegan can also be considered as a Kekkei Genkai.
As for the combination of elements though, it is still uncertain whether the user can have the ability to combine them like the Mokuton (Wood release; Wood + Water Element), Shakuton (Scorch release; Fire + Wind Element) and many more.
Summary; Rinnegan as the strongest Dojutsu and Kekkei Genkai
To summarize everything, yes, Rinnegan is the strongest Dojutsu and Kekkei Genkai in the Naruto Shippuden series.
