The Mangekyou Sharingan is one of the most powerful abilities in the Naruto universe. This advanced form of the Sharingan can only be awakened by a few selected Uchiha clan members. One of those selected few is a well-known character named Itachi.
Itachi is a prodigy who awakened his Mangekyou Sharingan after witnessing the death of his best friend, Shisui. With this power, Itachi can perform several techniques such as Tsukuyomi and Amaterasu, which allow him to manipulate time and space, as well as create and control black flames.
The Mangekyou Sharingan contacts Itachi’s eyes when he uses these powerful techniques. It causes a strain on his body, leading to blindness and eventually death. However, he discovered a way to prolong his life by obtaining his brother Sasuke’s sharingan.
Apart from the physical toll, using these abilities also takes an emotional toll on Itachi. He used his powers to protect his village by committing unspeakable acts that took a toll on his psyche. In the end, Itachi’s loyalty to his village and his little brother proved stronger than any emotional or physical toll he bore.
The Mangekyou Sharingan is a remarkable power that brings with it great responsibilities. Few characters in the Naruto universe possess this power, and Itachi is one of them. His sacrifices and his ultimate loyalty to his village and his family make him an unforgettable character in the series.
