Naruto: 7 Strongest Kekkei Genkai (& 7 Weakest)

Kekkei Genkai, also known as Bloodline Limits, are powerful abilities in the world of Naruto that are only accessible to certain clans, which is what makes them extremely powerful. Often, these powers see two natures being combined together to form a completely different ability.

There are all sorts of Kekkei Genkai in the world of Naruto, and while some of them are powerful enough to destroy the world, others are quite weak.

Updated on October 18th, 2020 by Josh Davison:The worlds of Naruto and Boruto are largely shaped by shinobi with powerful inherited abilities, also known as Kekkei Genkai. These powers are passed down throughout the generations and tend to shape the kind of shinobi an individual will become. Dojutsu, or eye techniques, are among the most famous and often powerful forms of Kekkei Genkai. There are countless variety of Kekkei Genkai in the ninja world, but many often seem quite weak compared to others. With that in mind, let's further explore the concept and expand this list of strongest and weakest Kekkei Genkai with another two in each column.

14 STRONGEST: Jugo's Kekkei Genkai (Curse Mark)

The Kekkei Genkai of Jugo's Clan may be one of the most consequential in the entire Naruto world. On its own, it's very powerful, allowing the user to absorb, transform, and emit the natural energies of the world. It made Jugo himself a deadly powerhouse, even if it and Orochimaru's experiments frayed his sanity beyond repair.

What has made it more destructive is the creation of the Curse Seal or Curse Mark, created by Orochimaru, which has transmitted Jugo's powers and its subsequential physical transformation to several shinobi across the ninja world. Sasuke Uchiha, Anko Mitarashi, Kimimaro Kaguya, and the Sound Ninja Four all received versions of the Curse Mark which granted them greater power than they already had. Furthermore, it made them vulnerable to Orochimaru's control.

13 WEAKEST: Akimichi Clan Kekkei Genkai

The Kekkei Genkai of the Akimichi Clan, most commonly seen used by Choji, Choza, and Chocho Akimichi, allows the user to turn calories into chakra and manipulate ones on body mass to great effect. This includes general size increase, manipulating the mass of arms and legs, torso inflation, and rounding for attacks such as the Human Boulder.

This Kekkei Genkei is by no means weak, and it has made the Akimichi Clan one of the most respected families in Konohagakure. However, it is far outshined by Wood Release, the Dojutsus, or even the Kekkei Genkei of the Yamanaka and Nara Clans.

12 STRONGEST: Shikotsumyaku (Bone Manipulation)

One of the most oft-forgotten Kekkei Genkei, the Shikotsumyaku, or Bone Manipulation, of the Kaguya Clan is a fearsome ability. It allows the user to manipulate their own skeletal structure, weaponize it, and even fire bones like projectiles. In its most extreme usage, it even allowed Kimimaro Kaguya to form a forest of bone spikes.

Kimimaro could have easily gone on to become one of the most powerful shinobi in the world if his chronic disease hadn't weakened him and, ultimately, claimed his life. On top of everything else, his clan, the Kaguya Clan, is a direct descendent of the great Kaguya Otsutsuki.

11 WEAKEST: Byakugan

The weakest of the great Dojutsus and not all that impressive when compared to many non-Kekkei Genkai abilities, the Byakugan was considered a very powerful ability early on in the Naruto saga. It made Neji Hyuga among the strongest of his generation of shinobi. However, it allowed him to see everything around him and easily locate the chakra points on an opponent's body. The Hyuga Clan also has a variety of powerful taijutsu techniques intended to manipulate a foe's chakra.

However, that just isn't that impressive when many battles become more about apocalyptic ninjutsu, mind-controlling genjutsu, Bijuu, Susano'o, and other manner of unfathomably powerful techniques. This tragically seemed to come full circle when Neji was cut down during the Fourth Great Shinobi War, and all his great powers proved to be nothing before the likes of Madara and Obito Uchiha.

10 STRONGEST: Mangekyo Sharingan

The Mangekyo Sharingan is the Kekkei Genkai of the Uchiha Clan and is the evolved form of the Sharingan. This eye can only be awakened by a person when experiencing some heavy emotional trauma, usually triggered by the death of someone close.

The Mangekyo Sharingan gives its user the ability to read the movements of the opponent, along with two unique powers. It also grants the power of the Susanoo.

9 WEAKEST: Sakon and Ukon's Kekkei Genkai

Sakon and Ukon were members of the Sound Five from Otogakure and they possessed quite a unique Kekkei Genkai that allowed them to break down their bodies on a molecular level. Using this technique, the two could even share a single body.

Its most frightening ability is that this Kekkei Genkai allowed them to merge with the bodies of other people and destroy them from within. Despite that, even Kiba managed to counter it, which makes it weak.

8 STRONGEST: Tenseigan

Another powerful ocular Kekkei Genkai, the Tenseigan is unique to some members of the Otsutsuki clan, such as Toneri. Its powers are quite similar to that of the Rinnegan as it allows the user to control magnetic forces, produce chakra receivers, and grants the ability of flight.

Furthermore, this power also gives a massive power boost to the user in the form of the Tenseigan Chakra Mode.

7 WEAKEST: Magnet Release

Magnet Release is often wielded by certain individuals from the Sand Village, and it allows the user to control magnetic fields, as the name suggests. In terms of destructive powers offered, this Kekkei Genkai isn't all that powerful.

However, it does provide the user with a wide array of Sealing Jutsu. Furthermore, someone like the Third Kazekage could incorporate it into his Jutsu and create the deadly Iron Sand.

6 STRONGEST: Wood Release

One of the most powerful known Kekkei Genkai in Naruto, Wood Release was unique to the First Hokage of Konohagakure, Hashirama Senju. It allowed him to mix the use of Water Release and Earth Release and use powerful techniques as a result.

Wood Release allows the user to create a forest out of nowhere and even use Wood Golems strong enough to fight Bijuu. Perhaps its biggest strength is that it can restrain Tailed Beasts.

5 WEAKEST: Ice Release

Ice Release is one of the earliest Kekkei Genkai to have been introduced in the Naruto series through Haku. Its powers are accessible only to a handful of people, such as those of the Yuki clan.

Ice Release allows the user to create Ice and manipulate it in a variety of ways. The Jutsu is basically as powerful as its user, however, from what has been seen so far, it certainly is a tad weaker when compared to the like of the Mangekyo Sharingan.


One of the Kekkei Genkai of the Otsutsuki, the Jougan is a rather mysterious power that hasn't been fully explained to us yet. Boruto Uzumaki is the only wielder of this power so far, however, what we do know is that its powers allow the user to see rifts in space-time.

RELATED: The God Of High School: Jin Mori VS Naruto ー Who Would Win?

It also lets the user see the chakra circulation system of others and even spot their weak points. Undoubtedly, more powers of this eye will be revealed to us in the future.

3 WEAKEST: Explosion Release

A Kekkei Genkai that's usually possessed by people from the Iwagakure, Explosion Release is thought to be a combination of Earth and Lightning Release.

It gives explosive properties to the chakra of the user and makes them deadly in combat. Explosion Release is quite powerful when it comes to close-combat. However, it is definitely one of the weakest Kekkei Genkai we've seen so far.

2 STRONGEST: Rinnegan

The Rinnegan is one of the strongest known Kekkei Genkai in the series, if not the strongest. It is considered to be the strongest of the Three Great Dojutsu and can only be awakened by a few people.

A user of this power can control the Six Paths, and even have control over life and death itself. The capabilities of the Rinnegan make it a massive weapon that can even destroy the world.

1 WEAKEST: Ketsuryugan

Said to hold powers comparable to the Three Great Dojutsu, the Ketsuryugan is a Kekkei Genkai of the Chinoike Clan. It allows the wielder the power to control fluids with a high concentration of iron, such as blood.

Perhaps its strongest power is that it lets the user cast powerful Genjutsu on others via skin contact or through their gaze. While it is powerful, it doesn't stand a chance when up against the likes of the Sharingan or the Byakugan.

All About The 17 Kekkei Genkai Abilities of NARUTO

Bloodline limits (Kekkei Genkai) are special abilities or bodily constitutions passed down genetically. Generally speaking, only those born into the bloodline possess the potential, although the power level may vary. In some cases the power lies dormant until awakened.

There are mainly three types of Kekkei Genkai. One is Doujutsu, represented by Uchiha family’s Sharingan. Another is Nature Transformation, which is to combine two of the five main elements (fire, water, wind, earth, thunder) to create a new nature. The last one is idiosyncrasy type, including Kimimaro’s Shikotsumyaku.

The Three Great Doujutsu (Eye Techniques)

This refers to ninja techniques executed using one’s eyes. They do not require hand seals, but tend to use a great deal of chakra and stamina. The three most famous ones are the Sharingan, Byakugan, and the Rinnegan.

1. Byakugan

Users: Hyuga Family


The Byakugan grants an almost perfect field of vision through even solid objects, except a small blind spot near the second vertebrae behind the individual. The user also gains the ability to see meters to even kilometers further. The Byakugan also detects chakra fields that result from casting ninja techniques, giving the user the ability to detect illusions, and even gives the chakra pathways of other ninja, which led to the development of the signature Hyuuga fighting style.

2. Sharingan

Users: Uchiha Family, Kakashi Hatake, Danzou Shimura


Gives the user the ability to learn and use any ninjutsu, genjutsu, or taijutsu simply by witnessing it. (This excludes other Bloodline Limits, of course.) The user also gains the ability to see faster movements, as well as detect chakra to the point where it’s possible to differ between a clone and the real person.

3. Mangekyou Sharingan

Users: Sasuke Uchiha, Itachi Uchiha, Madara Uchiha, Obito Uchiha, Shisui Uchiha, Izuna Uchiha, Shin Uchiha, Kakashi Uchiha

mangekyou sharingan

The Mangekyou Sharingan is gained upon seeing the dead of a loved one with a regular Sharingan. This upgrade is exponentially more powerful than the original, and grants additional powers that vary from person to person. Using the Mangekyou Sharingan causes excessive strain on the eyes, and the user loses their vision when Mangekyou is activated until they go blind.

The Special Abilities of Mangekyou Sharingan


izanagiUnlike normal genjutsu that project an illusion in the target’s mind, Izanami affects reality. Affecting the user rather than others, it’s possible to turn unfavorable situations into “dreams” and favorable situations into “reality”. This comes at a cost however- the eye that casts Izanagi is rendered blind.


izanamiThe technique created in order to punish abusers of the Izanagi. Like its counterpart, also blinds the eye that it uses. Using Izanami, it’s possible to trap the target in an unending cycle of the same event by feeding the memory and sensations of the event through the Sharingan. Instead of escaping a situation, the target is forced to repeat that moment endlessly until they decide to reject the Izanagi illusion in favor of true reality.


kamuiThe user gains the ability to teleport either themselves or an area in their line of sight into a barrier dimension. This ability can be used to dodge enemy attacks, or absorb enemy projectiles and send them back towards the caster. The amount of time the user can spend in the separate dimension is limited.


amaterasuA black flame that burns through anything for seven days and seven nights is manifested at the point of focus.


kagutsuchiGrants the ability to further manipulate Amaterasu. The user can transform the flames to use defensively as a shield, or shape them into spears of flame for offense.


tsukuyomiCreates an illusion where the user is able to control mass, space, and even time. This technique requires eye contact to be performed. Whatever horrors the victim suffers are not visible to bystanders, although they frequently leave the victim psychologically scarred.


kotoamatsukamiAn undetectable illusion that implants false memories into a target, controlling them even while they believe they are acting of their own free will.


susanooBy bringing shape to the user’s chakra, Susanoo provides heavy defense against all ninjutsu, while attacking on the user’s behalf. Susanoo also has additional powers that vary according to the user.
-The Sword of Totsuka: A katana that can seal anyone it strikes in a genjutsu for eternity. Used by Itachi.
-The Mirror of Yata: A physical and genjutsu shield that provides absolute defense. Used by Itachi.
-Indra’s Arrows: A lightning fast, viciously powerful arrow that pierces the enemy. Used by Sasuke.
-Yasaka Magatama: Orbs of black flame that resemble the magatama shape in Sharingan are created from Susanoo’s hand, then fired as projectiles. Used by Itachi, Sasuke, and Madara.

4. Rinnegan

Users: Nagato, Sasuke Uchiha, Madara Uchiha, Obito Uchiha, Kaguya Otsutsuki, Hagoromo Otsutsuki


The rarest and most powerful of the three Doujutsu. In addition to being able to perform all of the nature transformations, the user gains access to the Six Paths, as well as the seventh, Outer Path.

The Naraka Path also has the ability to resuscitate things, healing any damage.

A Bloodline (血継, Kekkei) is the passing on of traits from parents to offspring, usually by way of sexual or asexual reproduction. Concerning unique capabilities and attributes of any giving bloodline, it can manifest in numerous ways and in several categories.

Bloodline Types

Throughout the known Shinobi World, there exist seven recognized Bloodline types:

  • Kekkei Genkai (血継限界, Bloodline Limit) are abilities passed down genetically within specific clans. It's possible for a shinobi to have more than one of these abilities. Kekkei Genkai abilities that work via the user's eye are called dōjutsu. Other kekkei genkai include mixing one type of elementalchakra with another, creating a new one unique to the users, which is usually impossible for normal ninja, or other bodily manipulations that are usually unachievable by normal standards.
  • Kekkei Gōdo (血継合同, Bloodline Amalgamation) is a type of hybrid bloodline formed from a combination of two or more bloodlines. An elemental Kekkei Gōdo is composed of five different nature transformations. Non-elemental bloodlines of this type are the result of the offspring of two bloodline users giving birth to an offspring with a hybrid bloodline sharing traits of the two.
  • Kekkei Henkei (血継変形, Bloodline Transmogrification) are bloodlines abilities which are exchanged and/or replicated by an individual through direct modification of their genetic code. As such, nearly any bloodline can become a Kekkei Henkai when utilized by the wielder. While a Kekkei Henkai isn't permanent by any means, if skilled enough, it's possible for the wielder to recall a previous bloodline they've come across, or even use multiple Kekkei Henkai at a single time.
  • Kekkei Kōtai (血継交代, Bloodline Atavism): TBC.
  • Kekkei Mōra (血継網羅, Bloodline Encompassing): are an advanced branch of jutsu unique to the precursor of a given bloodline. Kaguya Ōtsutsuki was a wielder of numerous Kekkei Mōra, the Rinne Sharingan and Byakugan of which are prominent examples. Kekkei Mōra are known to be precursors of which other bloodlines have descended from. Unlike other bloodlines, what makes a Kekkei Mōra stand out is that they aren't merely limited to only bloodlines, but can extend to techniques as well.
  • Kekkei Senyaku (血継煎薬, Bloodline Infusion): is a bloodline gained by way of infusion of the user's Soul Essence (霊精気, Reiseiki) into another through essence transfusion. Kekkei Senyaku can not be passed on genetically from the receiver, nor can it be taught. The process of obtaining a Kekkei Senyaku can be natural or artificial in nature. Because of its unique connection to the soul and body, there is no genetic requirement for the acquisition of a Kekkei Senyaku. Kakashi Hatake obtaining the Mangekyō Sharingan in both eyes by Obito Uchiha's soul temporarily inhibiting his body is an example of this.
  • Kekkei Tōta (血継淘汰, Bloodline Selection) are an advanced branch of jutsu that is more advanced than the jutsu class of kekkei genkai. What makes Kekkei Tōta stand out from other bloodlines is its ability to be taught to others. An elemental Kekkei Tōta is always composed of a combination of three different nature transformations that a person possesses a natural affinity for, while non-elemental kekkei tōta can be passed down non-genetically to others within a clan or to someone considered worthy of it.
  • Kekkei Yōso (血継要素, Bloodline Composition) TBC.

Naruto's Secret Bloodline Completely Ruined the Series

Naruto has experienced numerous dramatic twists and turns throughout its run, none are more baffling than the revelation about his ancestors.

One of the most important reoccurring themes in Narutois the difference between natural talent and hard work. Though most obviously evident in Naruto and Sasuke, this theme resonates throughout the series, going a long way in showing how willpower and effort are far more valuable than any innate ability. Unfortunately, one of the series' biggest twists completely undermines this theme by revealing that not only is Naruto a prophesized hero, but also that he and Sasuke share a common ancestor.

Towards the end of Naruto's famous "Fourth Shinobi World War" arc, the Nine-Tailed fox demon inside of Naruto (Kurama) references an ancient shinobi named Hagoromo who prophecized that there would be a ninja who would come along to unite the ninja world in harmony. Later, after Kurama is extracted from Naruto by the villainous Madara, Naruto's subconscious is greeted to a meeting with the first shinobi himself. It's there that Hagoromo reveals the true reason that Naruto and Sasuke were always destined to become rivals.

Related: The First Version of Naruto Wasn't a Ninja

According to Hagoromo, he and his mother Kaguya were actually beings from another world who came to Earth. Though Kaguya was evil and only viewed the planet as a resource to be used, Hagoromo had much nobler intentions, wanting to create peace in the world. Realizing that world peace wasn't something he could achieve in one lifetime though, he fathered twin sons, Indra and Asura. The older Indra displayed a natural aptitude for Ninjutsu while the younger Asura needed to work hard to reach his potential. Seeing Asura's greater potential, Hagoromo eventually chose the younger son to succeed him. This eventually lead to an all-out war as Indra was furious with not being chosen. The reason all of that is particularly relevant is that Naruto is the descendant and reincarnation of Asura while the same is true for Sasuke and Indra.

It is difficult to overstate how much damage these revelations do to Naruto's core themes. Though Sasuke's relationship to Naruto is controversial, it's undeniable that their relationship is the heart of the series. The reason they connect to each other, and also the reason they clash so much, is that their wildly different backgrounds led to similar problems. Both were orphans who spent almost their whole lives pushing other people away because of their shared loneliness. It was their very specific circumstances that kept on drawing the two back to each other. Having their relationship be the result of predestination cheapens things. This revelation makes it so that their bond isn't unique, it's one that countless people have experienced across multiple generations.More than just Naruto's relationship to Sasuke though, Naruto being a prophesized figure undermines the theme of hard work vs. natural talent. Yes, Naruto still had to put the work in to become as powerful as he did, but that outcome was predetermined long before he was born.

Ultimately, it's a major disappointment that Naruto's major themes were disregarded as the series reached its conclusion. Naruto and Sasuke secretly being reincarnations of two brothers doesn't deepen their relationship or advance it in the slightest. Instead, all it does is make the series' timeline overly convoluted while immensely cheapening the core relationship and themes that Naruto is built around.
