How does Susanoo work in Naruto


Susanoo (須 佐 能 乎) is a very powerful technique of the Uchiha clan that can only be used in conjunction with the Mangekyō Sharingan. A ghostly samurai is created to help the user in battle. According to Itachi, he learned this technique when Amaterasu and Tsukuyomi were awakened in him.

Susanoo is built up in three stages. First the skeleton is created, which is then surrounded by a kind of muscular armor. Ultimately, the user creates strong armor around the warrior. With each level, Susanoo seems to get stronger.

The being is able to use the Yatagarasu no Kama, a very powerful ghost scythe and the Fushi no Tori, a cloak that absorbs all attacks. However, these weapons seem to be available only to the perfected form of Susano.

While Itachi's Susanoo is reddish and Sasuke's is deep black, Saikis is bluish. Its shape is very reminiscent of a grim reaper. Unlike the other two Susanoo, Saikis does not change in that his form is now surrounded by muscle armor.

The use of the Susanoo is extremely exhausting, not only because of the chakra consumption, but also because Susanoo feeds on the life force of the user. When Sasuke used this technique for a short time, he felt pain in every cell of his body.


  • The Susanoo, like the other jutsu of the Mangekyō Sharingan Amaterasu and Tsukuyomi, is named after a kami
  • According to Sasuke, you have to use both Mangekyō Sharingan at the same time in order to use the third jutsu, Susanoo, in addition to Tsukuyomi and Amaterasu, for which you only need the left and right eye respectively
  • Tobi thinks that even for an owner of the Mangekyō Sharingan it is an outstanding achievement to be able to use Susanoo
  • Sasuke's Susanoo has three arms with six fingers each
