Kekkei Genkai are DNA anomalies that give ninjas special powers that stand out when compared to their basic roots. Kekkei Genkai such as wood release for example is only wielded by a handful of individuals and is a combination of Earth and Water release. Some of these abilities have the power to literally shape the ninja world while others have certain characteristics that make them just useful in battle. The Naruto world wouldn’t be the same without the introduction of Kekkei Genkai and looking at the strength of each of them might unveil a newfound respect for the creativity and effort that went into this series.

10 Ketsuryugan

One of the lesser-known yet intriguing Kekkei Genkai in the Naruto universe is the Ketsuryugan, a bloodline ability that emanates a sense of dark fascination. Originating from the Chinoike clan, this rare dojutsu is characterized by its crimson hue and unique visual prowess.

Its main ability is to cast a genjutsu simply by meeting someone’s gaze or through skin contact. Not just that but through the use of Ketsuryugan, users can manipulate any fluid that has a high concentration of iron, particularly blood. Its power is said to be comparable to that of the three great Dojutsu which is a testament to its strength.

9 Magnet Release

Magnet Release, a remarkable Kekkei Genkai born from the fusion of Earth and Wind elements, grants its wielders unmatched control over magnetic forces. It’s usually found in ninjas residing in the sand village and some notably powerful users of this Kekkei Genkai were the third and fourth Kazekage’s with their iron and gold sand.

It also has remarkable sealing properties, an extremely useful ability to have during the fourth great ninja war which is why it’s considered to be one of the stronger Kekkei Genkai in the Narutoverse.

8 Shikotsumyaku

In the original Naruto show, Kimimaro, one of the members of the sound five showed extraordinary skill with this ability and was able to take on both Rock Lee and Gaara and would’ve won if he wasn’t sick. If this Kekkei Genkai was a bit more spread out, it would’ve certainly been a force to be reckoned with.

7 Byakugan

The Byakugan stands as a pinnacle of visual prowess within the shinobi world since it’s considered to be one of the three great Dojutsu. Possessed exclusively by the Hyuga clan, this extraordinary Kekkei Genkai grants its users unparalleled vision, penetrating through solid objects and perceiving the intricate network of chakra flowing within living beings. The Byakugan’s ability to see with incredible clarity, even over vast distances, bestows its wielders with a strategic advantage in battle.

But the power of the Byakugan extends beyond its piercing sight. Hyuga clan members skilled in the gentle fist combat style can strike with precision, targeting an opponent’s chakra points to disrupt their flow and immobilize them.

6 Jogan

Wielded by Boruto Uzumaki, the Jogan possesses extraordinary abilities that hint at its immense potential. While the full extent of its powers remains shrouded in mystery, glimpses of its capabilities have captivated Naruto fans. The Jogan enables Boruto to perceive and interact with other dimensions, providing him with a unique insight into hidden realms and unseen threats.

As the story of Boruto unfolds, the true significance and untapped power of the Jogan are yet to be fully revealed, leaving fans of the Boruto show in unending anticipation. With what we do know though, the Jogan is an extremely powerful Kekkei Genkai with only one user so far.

5 Isshiki Otsutsuki’s Dojutsu

Isshiki Otsutsuki, a formidable and enigmatic figure within the Naruto universe, possesses a unique and unnamed Dojutsu that radiates an aura of unparalleled power. This mysterious ocular ability bestows upon Isshiki an extraordinary control over space-time, allowing him to shrink objects at will and store them in a dimension where time is still.

The true nature and origin of Isshiki’s Dojutsu remain subjects of great speculation and anticipation, further heightening the intrigue surrounding this Kekkei Genkai. From what we’ve seen so far though, it definitely has the potential to be one of the strongest Kekkei Genkai in the Narutoverse.

4 Wood Release

Wood Release, an extraordinary and rare Kekkei Genkai harnessed by the legendary First Hokage, Hashirama Senju, stands as a testament to the immense power that can be derived from the fusion of Earth and Water elements. This ability grants its wielder unparalleled control over wood and allows them to create their own jutsu with it.

By seamlessly blending these elements, users of Wood Release, particularly Hashirama and Madara, can manipulate forests, generate colossal trees, and even create living wooden constructs. The versatility of Wood Release extends to both offense and defense, as Hashirama demonstrated on numerous occasions during his reign. Hashirma was considered to be one of the strongest characters in the series and as such wood release is the best non-dojutsu Kekkei Genkai in Naruto.

3 Tenseigan

Toneri Otsutsuki showcased the potential of the Tenseigan in the Naruto movie. Awakened by combining the chakra of a Hyuga clan member wielding a byakagun with that of an Otsutsuki, this remarkable Dojutsu is an evolved form of the Byakugan, surpassing its predecessor in both visual prowess and abilities.

Toneri is the only known user of Tenseigan besides Hamura, and with the Tenseigan, he was shown to have a chakra mode similar to that of Naruto’s but different in color. With the Tenseigan he also gained access to truth-seeking balls and even managed to split the moon in half. Those feats alone make it one of the strongest Kekkei Genkai in the series.

2 Sharingan/Mangekyou Sharingan

The iconic eyes that everyone loves, the Sharingan manifests as a symbol of both extreme power and tragic destiny. The Sharingan grants its users enhanced visual perception, enabling them to see and analyze the flow of chakra, anticipate opponents’ movements, and even decipher complex jutsu. With each progressive stage of its evolution, the Sharingan unlocks new abilities, such as the ability to copy and mimic techniques witnessed by its wielder.

However, it is through the Mangekyou Sharingan that the true depths of the Uchiha clan’s ocular power are revealed. Each individual’s Mangekyou Sharingan abilities are unique such as Obito’s Kamui or Itachi’s Amaterasu, but they all grant their users a Susanoo, an extremely powerful technique that landed the Sharingan among the three great Dojutsu of the Naruto world.

1 Rinnegan

The Rinnegan is the strongest Kekkei Genkai as well as one of the strongest Dojutsu out there. It was first awakened by Hagoromo Otsutsuki after which nobody until Madara Uchiha was able to access it. Those who possess the Rinnegan are bestowed with heightened visual perception, perceiving the world with remarkable clarity. The true might of the Rinnegan lies in its ability to manipulate all forms of chakra and control all five forces of nature.

With this Dojutsu, users can unleash devastating jutsu, such as summoning colossal creatures, manipulating gravity, and even resurrecting the dead. Historically, the Rinnegan has been associated with individuals of immense significance, such as Nagato, the leader of the Akatsuki, and Sasuke Uchiha, the last of the Uchiha clan. Their possession of the Rinnegan propelled them to the forefront of battles and shaped the very course of the Naruto storyline which is why it’s considered to be the strongest Kekkei Genkai in the Narutoverse.
