The Rinnegan is the strongest eye of the three great eyes in Naruto, and as the highest pupil force, the Rinnegan eye is known as the eye that controls life and death. It is characterized by a ripple pattern that spreads over the eyeball. It's said that in times of chaos, the man who wields the Rinnegan is sent from the welkin, he can be either a creative god with the ability to create or a destructive god with the ability to destroy.
The Rinnegan was first manifested by Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki in the Shinobi World, derived from the Rinne Sharingan wielded by his mother. It is said that his Rinnegan was a kekkei mōra, he saved the world from the Ten-Tails and created ninshū with it. In the Naruto anime, after experiencing the trauma of loss, Hagoromo awakened his Mangekyō Sharingan which almost instantaneously progressed to become Rinnegan, and hence Hagoromo became revered as the Sage of Six Paths.
What's the Power of Rinnegan Eye?
A Rinnegan user has control over life and death itself and has six different groups of techniques collectively referred to as Rikudou no Jutsu (Six Paths Technique).
Animal Path, summon different types of apparently immortal animals.
Human Path, remove a person’s soul. By doing so, the user also gains all of the knowledge of the person they kill.
Asura Path, summon mecha weapons, limbs, and armor.
Preta Path, absorb chakra, and techniques are composed of chakra.
Deva Path, manipulate attractive and repulsive forces, as well as create planetoids.
Outer Path, create black chakra rods which can bind people, as well as some power over the boundaries between life and death.
Who is The Strongest Rinnegan User?
5/5 Sasuke Uchiha
Widely famed as the only shinobi capable of rivaling Naruto Uzumaki, Sasuke Uchiha achieved godly status by receiving the Six Paths Yin powers from Hagoromo Otsutsuki.
4/5 Kaguya Otsutsuki
The progenitor of chakra on Earth itself, Kaguya Otsutsuki also possessed a power similar to the Rinnegan. Being an Otsutsuki, she could absorb all chakra, and hence all ninjutsu were rendered useless against her.
3/5 Momoshiki Otsutsuki
One of the members of the main family of the Otsutsuki clan, Momoshiki is arguably the strongest that we've seen. Being capable of fighting both Adult Naruto and Sasuke head-on, Momoshiki appeared to be an awfully strong foe.
2/5 Urashiki Otsutsuki
Unlike Sasuke, Urashiki wields the tomoe-Rinnegan in both eyes. As expected of an Otsutsuki, Ninjutsu is practically useless against him. Kurashiki's Rinnegan lets him teleport to places instantly, and when combined with his ability to steal the chakra of people and use it, he is undoubtedly one of the strongest in the series.
1/5 Hagoromo Otsutsuki
Also known as the Sage of Six Paths, Hagoromo Otsutsuki is arguably the strongest character in the entire Naruto series. Wielding the Rinnegan since he was a kid, Hagoromo's skill with this eye is unmatched.
