Rinnegan is probably the greatest of Three great Dojutsu.(The other two are Sharingan, Byakugan). In Legends its said that possessor of such eye appears in time of distress. The Possessor has the power to change the destiny of a Land by becoming the Creation God giving the world its solace or Destruction God bringing the chaotic world to ruins. Presence of Ripple pattern in the eyes identifies the Rinnegan bearer.
Sasuke Uchiha’s Tomoe Rinnegan
Sasuke Uchiha awakens his Rinnegan thanks to his interaction with Hagoromo Otsutsuki. He meets up with Sage in his mental space or in Purgatory in near death state. There the Sage gives him half of his power along with the Yin Seal. This allows him to waken this power; though his awakening is possibly the fastest thanks to Hagoromo’s powerful chakra. Unlike the Standard Dojutsu, Sasuke’s Rinnegan has tomoe in them. These indicate the power chakra levels of Sasuke, if all of them disappear Sasuke can’t use his visual power. Sasuke’s unique attribute is the teleportation Amenotejikara. It allows him to switch places with objects if they are in range. What other power does this Tomoe Rinnegan brings to the equation is still unclear. We might get to see the abilities in fight with the Gods.
Madara Uchiha’s Kekkei Genkai Rinnegan
Madara Uchiha is possibly the first character who awakens Rinnegan canonically speaking. In his fight with Hashirama, Madara steals his cells and fakes his death with Izanagi. Than he later escapes and replaces himself with Shadow clone and regurgitates the piece of flesh. Later he implants them onto his body and for some reason is out of action for long time. Before his death he awakens Rinnegan and summons Gedo Maze(Kaguya’s shell). Madara’s Visual Dojutsu is the standard version and his special attributes is the Limbo. This ability allows Madara to manifest 4 Madara’s at one instance. Quite the OP ability since fighting one Madara is headache. Four of them is definitely slaughter especially when you can’t perceive them without Six Paths. What’s even more frustrating(for opponents) is that Madara can use them to tank the actual damage by switching places.
Momoshiki displays two different variation of this Exalted eye. One is the base Red form and the other one is Gold one. An important note here is the Black Hand in above picture. In fact the databook makes special concession for this small “black glove” on his left hand. In fact this hand’s eye is mostly for Ninjutsu absorption. The Ninjutsu is than released with 10 to 100 times the original power by deriving power from his own reserves. My guess is that Momoshiki enhances this particular eye with a Truth Seeker Ball.
On absorbing his guardian and father figure Kinshiki, Momoshiki gains the Golden ones instead of the purple in the Boruto Movie. It’s unclear what kind of power-up these modification provide but he does power-up enough to kick Naruto and Sasuke’s Ass alone though together they defeat him with Kurama Susanoo. He also gains some kind of Black Curse Marks whose function is still not clear. Perhaps the anime would clear these details.
Hagoromo Otsutsuki’s Kekkei Mora Rinnegan
The only Official Kekkei Mora Rinnegan in the Series according to Databook which puts him on the level of his mother Kaguya Otsutsuki. In fact in his youth he defeats his mother alongside his brother with assistance from his brother and this is without him being Ten-Tails Jinchuriki. Also unlike Naruto and Sasuke’s fight with Jubi, he fights his mother for months signifying further rift in the powers. Hagoromo also creates the Powerful Yin-Yang Seals to seal his mother with Six Paths: Chibaku Tensei and gives it to Naruto and Sasuke. He also creates Bijus from the use of All Creation technique. This Son of Kaguya is possibly the strongest character as the Rinnegan bearer.
It’s an official statement from both the Data Book and Manga that its the progenitor of both the Sharingan and the Rinnegan. While Databook states that its Rinne Sharingan possesses the ocular powers of Sharingan, few things are left completely unclear. For instance does it possess all Rinnegan powers? Experience tell us that it might not. It has shown the Genjutsu powers Infinite Tsukuyomi, Teleportation (Amenominaka and Yomutsu Hirasaka) and Chakra absorption. That’s all, in fact i would go out on limb to say that it’s inferior to typical Rinnegan. The reason why Kaguya is so strong is thanks to her body-powers (expansive TSB, All Killing Ash Bones, Wood Release and huge amount of Chakra).
