The Sharingan

The Sharingan is one of the Three Great Eye Techniques. Used by members of the Uchiha clan, this Bloodline Limit allows users to instantly learn any nin, gen, and taijutsu seen through the activated Sharingan. (This excludes other Bloodline Limits for obvious reasons)

The Mangekyou Sharingan

The Mangekyou Sharingan is an upgrade of the regular Sharingan. It can only be unlocked upon going through the psychological trauma of seeing a loved one die in front of the Sharingan owner. The shapes differ person to person.
The Mangekyou grants additional, extremely strong powers to the user at the cost of severe vision impairment, and eventually blindness.

The Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan

The Eternal Mangekyou can only be achieved by receiving another Mangekyou Sharingan from another member of the Uchiha family. This results in free use of Mangekyou Sharingan’s powers with no loss of vision. The pattern also differs from both of the original Mangekyou Sharingans.
