Madara Uchiha's Abilities


Madara is considered to be one of the most gifted ninja in history. He has been noted to
have been born with particularly powerful chakra which the Nine-Tails claimed to be
even more sinister than its own. Said to be one of the most powerful shinobi ever
produced by the Uchiha clan, Madara possesses both formidable battle prowess and
vast experience due to his advanced age. However, Madara has admitted that he is not
as powerful as he was before his defeat by Hashirama Senju. The Nine-Tails' sealing into various jinchūriki also deprives him of a powerful offensive weapon.

Madara has proven skilled in a variety of areas. As Tobi, his only apparent claim to fame
was his speed. He is physically strong enough to stop a slash from Suigetsu's giant sword with a single arm, [12] and to break Torune's neck with a single move. His intimate knowledge of the ninja world allows him to recognize a jutsu and effectively
counter it. Madara also has knowledge of fūinjutsu used to create jinchūriki, including when they're most vulnerable and how to extract a tailed beast. He has excellent tracking abilities, being able to find others with ease.

Madara has displayed knowledge and ability in the surgical field. In particular, Madara
was able to remove and preserve Itachi's eyes after his death and later successfully
transplant them to Sasuke as well as somehow implanting the Rinnegan into his own
left eye after losing his Sharingan.

Throughout the series Madara has lost several limbs.[13][14] The loss does not seem to cause him any pain however, and a white substance is shown flowing from the
wounds instead of blood. It was later shown that he is able to recreate his limbs through an unknown method.


Madara is almost completely impervious to damage. When struck,
attacks pass right through him, though he sometimes pretends to be hurt or cry out in pain.[16] It was speculated by Kakashi that he uses a space–time ninjutsu to instantly send himself or even parts of his body to different locations or some sort of void and
then instantly bring them back. The only time Madara's solidity
can be confirmed is when he interacts with others, leaving him
susceptible to counter-attack when he does so. According to
Konan he can only make himself intangible for about five minutes.

Madara also shows the ability to travel long distances within relatively short timespans. While he is usually seen
using this ability on himself, avoiding attacks rather than
relying on his imperviousness, he can teleport anyone.
When he teleports Karin and Sasuke, he sends them to
what is a separate dimension. They are forced to stay
there until he chooses to release them. The chakra signatures of those that have been teleported completely
vanishes. His right eye appears to be the basis for this transportation. It was shown that his body is tangible when he absorbs people, making
it possible to attack him, as seen when Konan and Torune managed to injure him when he tried to absorb them.




Madara had mastered his Sharingan at a young age, and received praise for this. With his Sharingan, Madara was able to apply a
powerful genjutsu that allowed him to completely control the Fourth Mizukage, Yagura.[8] Being of the Uchiha clan and possessing Hashirama Senju's DNA, Madara is able to use Izanagi: a technique his clan deemed a kinjutsu since the user's Sharingan is stricken with blindness and sealed away forever. His usage of
the technique during his battle against Konan led to the sealing of his left eye.


Madara was the first of the Uchiha
to activate the Mangekyō Sharingan. He and his brother Izuna, who awoke his own soon after Madara did, used this new profound power to take over the Uchiha clan.
After going blind because of the use of the Mangekyō Sharingan, Madara implanted Izuna's eyes into his own
body, which then awakened a new "Eternal" Mangekyō Sharingan, a combination of his own and Izuna's
Mangekyō Sharingan. With it, Madara never had to fear the risk of losing his eyesight again. Madara also possesses high knowledge about the
Mangekyō Sharingan and its various techniques. While he has not been seen using any of these techniques, his understanding gives him a great advantage against other users,
such as Kakashi whose Kamui had no effect on him and Itachi's Amaterasu that he was somehow able to extinguish.

Madara had used his Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan to fully control the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox. First, he focuses on the Nine-Tails' eyes, and the Sharingan will appear over them, and then the Sharingan's tomoe disappears as the pupil enlarges.[18] After that, he can then use the Summoning Technique to transport the Nine-Tails to anywhere he wants it. [7] During the Nine-Tails' attack on Konoha, Minato Namikaze used a Contract Seal to remove Madara's control over the Nine-Tails.


After he took Nagato's body, Madara removed his Rinnegan and implanted it into his left eye, replacing the Sharingan lost due to the usage of Izanagi.[20] The Rinnegan allows the user to use all six elemental natures as well as all the abilities of the Six Paths of Pain, since they are all Rinnegan abilities. Now that he has the Rinnegan, he can summon the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path.


Madara has been shown with a diverse range of weapons over the years. He carried a war fan with him for most of his life up until his battle with Hashirama and had only recently begun to use it again, after readying his army for the Fourth Shinobi World War. In addition to the war fan, he had a kama with him when fighting Hashirama.

He is also seen wielding various numbers of swords at a time throughout his life since
his days on the battlefield and at least up to the point when he made contact with Itachi. [22] During his fight with Minato, he used a long chain attached to braces on his wrist, that resembled shackles. He used these in tandem with his ability to become intangible
with skill.
