Itachi Susanoo : Everything you need to know

Itachi Susanoo : Everything you need to know

All people who are fans of Naruto, know that one of the best and most influential deaths in the anime was that of Itachi Uchiha. Or rather, not really, in the chapter where he was fighting and almost dying against Sasuke, overall he wanted to see blood.

But as they say “if regret would kill…”, and there’s no better phrase than that to describe how fans felt a few chapters later. Yes, it was a bit like being in heaven, but when a curtain was pulled back, all hell broke loose.

And yes, it was literally a scarring regret. Fans cried tears of blood over the regret. Others began to idolise the character as the embodiment of the perfection of what a martyr should be. Others praised his conduct in choosing what was most important and not following his feelings.

But of course, what impressed many people the most was their strength. Itachi Uchiha will be remembered for his overwhelming power every time Naruto Shippuden goes too. If I compare, Itachi himself has more fans than Naruto himself who is the protagonist

Susanoo is an ability granted by the Mangekyō Sharingan to those who awaken the powers of their two eyes. Many fans are wondering about Itachi susanoo. We will try to tell you as much as possible about this susanoo.

Who is Itachi ?

Who is Itachi ?

Itachi Uchiha. Itachi played the role of antagonist in the second half of the show. He was a graduate of the academy at a very young age. Also, He was a Anbu Captain and was awakened to the Sharingan or the Mandelkyou Sharingan. 

In addition, He then went on to complete one of the most difficult S-Rank missions ever – killing the entire family. With the assistance by Obito Uchiha , known as “Masked Man”, he killed everyone in his family including his love interest Izumi along with his father and mother. The only person Uchiha Itachi who didn’t kill was his younger brother Saskue.

Itachi later joined later joined Akatsuki. He was later paired up with Juzo. When they engaged in combat with the prior Mizukage and he was killed, the pair teamed with Kisame.

How Itachi get Susanoo ?

But I’m just here to discuss one of the most striking and interesting parts of the entire anime. It’s the first appearance of the Susanoo technique of the Sharingan. And more specifically, the sword that Itachi’s susano’o possessed, the Totsuka sword.

As we already know, the susano’o technique greatly increases the defense and attack of the user. I won’t go into details because it would be boring to explain. But the fact is that every person has a unique susano’o. Itachi was certainly the most special of all.

He had with him two priceless treasures with powers beyond Naruto’s unusual sense. These treasures would certainly affect the balance of the world if Itachi himself was as bad as thought until his death… And it is these two items that I will introduce to you.

Ability Susanoo


YATA NO KAGAMI or Yata mirror

The first and most OP of the two was certainly the Mirror of Yata (八咫鏡, Yata no Kagami) which was an ethereal shield wielded by Susanoo of Itachi. Which is said to be endowed with the five transformations of nature (Fire, Air, Water, Earth, Lightning).

And he was able to change his own elements and characteristics according to the attacks he receives, making the attack totally ineffective. Ex: for a fire attack, he would take the water element; for an air attack, he would take the lightning element…

Black Zetsu claimed that this, combined with the Totsuka sword in his right hand, made Itachi’s Susanoo almost invincible. And it is the Totsuka sword that we will introduce next.



The Totsuka sword, also known as Sakegari no Tachi, is a variant of the Kusanagi sword. It is sheathed in a sake pot; the blade is actually the liquid inside the vessel that is loosened and shaped, rather than a conventional sword.

It is an ethereal weapon, with an enchanted blade capable of sealing anything it pierces. Those pierced by it are sucked into the jar and trapped in a “drunken dream world” like genjutsu for all eternity.

In addition, Itachi also managed to remove Sasuke’s cursed seal by striking and removing Orochimaru from Sasuke’s body. Orochimaru searched for the sword all his life and Zetsu commented that he could never find it.

Along with Yata’s mirror, Totsuka’s sword is a weapon carried by Itachi’s Susanoo and is used by the third hand that grows from his right forearm. Together they made Itachi almost invincible.

Why is Itachi susanoo red ?

Why is Itachi susanoo red ?

“Red is the color of fire and blood, so it is associated with energy, war, danger, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love.”

Itachi’s Susanoo is depicted with the unusual hue of orange/red that is quite different from the other Susanoo’s in the list above because Its color scheme is made up of warm hues instead of cool ones. As explained in the description above, the meanings for the color red is very diverse. Most often, the red color usually represents anger and passion.

These descriptions are the best depictions of Uchiha Itachi. Are his passion and determination protecting his younger brother’s life and his displeasure with the practices of his clan and the views of his clan’s members which resulted in several small actions of violence against his clan. It’s not difficult to understand the reasons he has these strong feelings, based on what we’ve seen. It’s evident that in his situation love is the main factor.

In the case of Itachi’s his mangekyo awoken just after the demise of Shisui Uchiha, with the subsequent coup. Itachi played a crucial part within this “war” within the village. It is possible that, like those mentioned in the section on Madara Itachi, perhaps his circumstances prior to an awakening in his mangekyo significantly contributed to the susanoo’s colors.

Does Itachi has the biggest Susanoo ?

All Susanoo users mangekyo Sharingan

No, Probably Sasuke Uchiha.

Sasuke Susanoo

Sasuke susanoo

Sasuke, like all Susanoo has many swords, but it most often uses a bow that can fire rapid-fire arrows and doubles as a shield.

Although most of these arrows have the same chakra as Susanoo, Sasuke is able to make arrows from Amaterasu’s undying flames, or channel lightning to create the Indra’s Arrow, his strongest attack.

Sasuke is able to form a Susanoo with the Nine-Tails, giving it its own sword and armor. When he does this, his power reaches unprecedented heights.

The Rinnegan allows him to create a much larger Complete Body – Susanoo that is comparable in power and size to the Tailed Beast Mode.

Sasuke may also use the wings to block the Infinite Tsukuyomi’s light.

Itachi’s Susanoo is stronger than Sasuke’s, mainly because he has mastered its Complete Form.

His Susanoo can unleash devastating power with the Six Paths Chakra and the Rinnegan.


Itachi undeniably with his susanoo balanced is one of the most powerful characters of the series. it’s why Itachi is so loved by Naruto fans, and it’s not hard to see why.
