Otsutsuki Clan

Ōtsutsuki clan (大筒木一族,): In the entire Boruto and Naruto series, the oldest clan who created Chakra and Jutsu was Otsutsuki Clan.

Otsutsuki Clan History:

The Ōtsutsuki clan is one of the oldest clans. They are the reason behind the existence of Ninjutsu and ninja also known as shinobi. The arrival of the Ōtsutsukis on Earth starts over a millennia ago, when a supreme being called Kaguya was sent by her clan on Earth to plant seeds that would grow up into a God-tree with its rhizome unfurling across the planet. The Ōtsutsukis harvest the Divine-trees to elongate their lives. They then use these trees to suck out the nature energy of the terrene thus making it arid. Once they absorb all the energy making the land barren, they move to another planet to repeat the process.

Over the generations, the Ōtsutsuki clan began to split into the main family and the branch family. The main family was completely wiped off by the branch family using Tenseigan. After a thousand years the only survivor of the Ōtsutsuki clan was Toneri who gets obsessed over the Hyūga’s undiluted Byakugan. He kidnaps the Hyūga clan‘s heir Hanabi and steals her Byakugan to awaken Tenseigan. He then gets defeated by Naruto and his team, leading him to give Hanabi’s eyes back and promises an alliance to Naruto and the ninja world. He later gave Boruto a unique acular ability of dōjutsu called Jōgan as the proof of his entente to earth.

Sharingan simply translates to Mirror Wheel Eye. It is mainly engendered by the Rinne Sharingan of Kaguya Ōtsutsuki. Even though it develops chiefly among the members of the Uchiha clan, it was first evinced by the son of Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki; Indra.

It also gives the ability to control the rival’s mind to the extent that the user can even erase the memory. Sharingan is awakened in response to powerful emotional reactions.

Mangekyō Sharingan-

Mangekyō Sharingan is like an upgraded form of Sharingan. It is activated when the user suffers from emotional contusion after witnessing the demise of someone he loved. Mangekyō Sharingan possesses some extra powerful abilities with that of Sharingan. It produces black flames called Amaterasu.

It also provides its holder with the ability to perform Tsukuyomi in which users can torture victims for hours by creating illusions.

However, the extent of abilities varies from individuals to individuals.


Rinnegan simply translates to Samsāra Eye. It is said that the Rinnegan is the successor of Sharingan. There are many methods of acquiring the Rinnegan like directly eating the fruit of God tree or getting it from the Sage of Six Paths or acquiring his chakra.

Rinnegan gives its user the ability to employ the Six Path Techniques. It also provides one with the ability to revive the dead. Rinnegan allows its holder to deftly maven the Jutsu.


Tenseigan translates to Reincarnation Eye. Tenseigan is the evolution of Byakugan. Tenseigan is acquired by combining the Byakugan of Hyūga clan with the Ōtsutsuki’s. It gives the ability to gain Truth-Seeking orbs when Tenseigan chakra mode is activated.
