Kekkei genkai (Literally meaning “a technique limited to inheritance by blood” or “Bloodline Limit”) are abilities passed down genetically within specific clans. It’s possible for a ninja to have more than one of these abilities. Kekkei genkai abilities that work via the user’s eye are called dōjutsu. There are all sorts of Kekkei Genkai in the world of Naruto, and while some of them are powerful enough to destroy the world, others are quite weak.
In Naruto some ninja families are granted special traits and Jutsu that only their clan can use, but which rank among the best?, let’s find out :
The weakest of the great Dojutsus and not all that impressive when compared to many non-Kekkei Genkai abilities, the Byakugan was considered a very powerful ability early on in the Naruto saga. It made Neji Hyuga among the strongest of his generation of shinobi. However, it allowed him to see everything around him and easily locate the chakra points on an opponent’s body. The Hyuga Clan also has a variety of powerful taijutsu techniques intended to manipulate a foe’s chakra.
However, that just isn’t that impressive when many battles become more about apocalyptic ninjutsu, mind-controlling genjutsu, Bijuu, Susano’o, and other manner of unfathomably powerful techniques. This tragically seemed to come full circle when Neji was cut down during the Fourth Great Shinobi War, and all his great powers proved to be nothing before the likes of Madara and Obito Uchiha.
5. Mangekyo Sharingan
The Mangekyo Sharingan is the Kekkei Genkai of the Uchiha Clan and is the evolved form of the Sharingan. This eye can only be awakened by a person when experiencing some heavy emotional trauma, usually triggered by the death of someone close.
The Mangekyo Sharingan gives its user the ability to read the movements of the opponent, along with two unique powers. It also grants the power of the Susanoo.
Another powerful ocular Kekkei Genkai, the Tenseigan is unique to some members of the Otsutsuki clan, such as Toneri. Its powers are quite similar to that of the Rinnegan as it allows the user to control magnetic forces, produce chakra receivers, and grants the ability of flight.
Furthermore, this power also gives a massive power boost to the user in the form of the Tenseigan Chakra Mode.
3. Wood Release
One of the most powerful known Kekkei Genkai in Naruto, Wood Release was unique to the First Hokage of Konohagakure, Hashirama Senju. It allowed him to mix the use of Water Release and Earth Release and use powerful techniques as a result.
Wood Release allows the user to create a forest out of nowhere and even use Wood Golems strong enough to fight Bijuu. Perhaps its biggest strength is that it can restrain Tailed Beasts.
One of the Kekkei Genkai of the Otsutsuki, the Jougan is a rather mysterious power that hasn’t been fully explained to us yet. Boruto Uzumaki is the only wielder of this power so far, however, what we do know is that its powers allow the user to see rifts in space-time.
It also lets the user see the chakra circulation system of others and even spot their weak points. Undoubtedly, more powers of this eye will be revealed to us in the future.
The Rinnegan is one of the strongest known Kekkei Genkai in the series, if not the strongest. It is considered to be the strongest of the Three Great Dojutsu and can only be awakened by a few people.
A user of this power can control the Six Paths, and even have control over life and death itself. The capabilities of the Rinnegan make it a massive weapon that can even destroy the world.
So that’s a wrap for top 6 Kekkei Genkai in all naruto series so far, I hope you like it and do leave a comment behind.
