We can't be sure if Tobi has it, but he said that he had "the sharingan's true power". He could have been talking about the mangekyou sharingan.


Tobi is Madara

It all depends weather or not Tobi is Madera (i think he is) then he does have the Mangekyo sharingon, but if your one orf the "Tobito" belivers then he probably doesnt have it.

Tobi is Uchiha Madara and Madara was one of the first to obtain Mangekyo Sharingan...


Tobi actually is not Madara, Madara is brought back to life in one of the newer episodes and fights for the Akatsuki. This proves that Tobi is an imposter.

He can use Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan and has mastered the Sharingan to such an extent that he was the former leader of the Uchiha Clan. Because of his Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan which he gained from taking his younger brother's Mangekyo Sharingan and his own, he can teleport to anywhere he wants and teleport other people as well. It makes other people pass right through him as well, making him intangible. However, if he wants to attack, he must become solid. It is also very likely that he can use Tsukuyomi, Amaterasu, and Susanoo with his Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan.

Tobi has a sharingan because he is a member of the Uchiha clan. As Obito Uchiha, he awakened his sharingan soon before his apparant death.

Does Kakashi know obito is alive?

Kakashi, Obito, Rin and Minato Namikaze (the leader) were students in the same team. Obito dies and later on it emerges that Tobi is, in fact, Madara Uchiha. No because obito is not Tobi .madara uchiha is a man from before the hidden leaf he is probably hundreds of years old madara was born before kakashi they can not be the same age because Kakashi is 27 Well as shown now tobi is not madara. However there is no way tobi could be obito cause at the time where the nine tails attacked kakashi was still young and tobi was way older when he fought minato. I dont get why people are not using their brains cause that is a proof that tobi is not obito.

Can Tobi control the nine tails?

yep! because Tobi has mangekyou sharingan. and it is said that Tobi controlled the nine tailed beast when it first attacked konohagakure. he controlled the kyuubi but unfortunately, the 4th hokage, Minato Namikaze, sealed the beast in naruto's body. by: deo bautista ^^, He even used 9 taild fox on the fight with first hokage.

Did Tobi from Naruto ever shown his current face?

yes he showed it to the remaining akatsuki members but the manga only showed him begining to take off his mask and then the reactions of kisame. but there is no actual picture of Tobi and his current face half of his face is shown to sasuke after itachi's death. when he is taking off his mask he catches on fire because itachi gave sasuke a sharingan move, so if madara shows his sharingan. he catches on fire with the move

How are Tobi and itachi related?

YES, Tobi and Itachi are related!!! Because they both have Sharingan, IDIOTS!!!This is just a note for the person who wrote above. The question is how are they related, not are they related! IDIOT! Like uncle, brother . . .what?That was a really stupid answer, the first person who answered, because Kakashi has a sharingan, but he is not related to Tobi or Itachi.What you should have said, is they are both related as they are both part of the Uchiha clan. But that still doesn't answer the question.I don't think anyone knows as I don't think it is written in the manga how they are related, but all I know is Madara (Tobi) is realllllllllly old, (He was around the same time as the 1st Hokage) so he's not Itachi's brother or something like that! x

How strong is Tobi in naruto?

Tobi is Madara Uchiha who is very powerful. He has the eternal mangekyo sharingan and also the power to control the nine tailed fox. The fox said to sasuke that Madara Uchiha is really strong.

How do Tobi do sharingan?

He is Obito Uchiha, which is why he has a sharingan. Though he gave one to Kakashi, he found a replacement somehow, possibly one of his new mentor, Madara's.

Are obito and Tobi the same people?

Tobi and Obito are absolutely not the same person(honestly we have no idea who tobi is, but he is not Madara).It was "revealed" in the episode where Tobi met Sasuke that Tobi is actually Uchiha Madara(but is later revealed he is not as Madara is brought back to life with Edo Tensei.),because he knows the reason why itachi wiped out the entire uchiha clan( which Tobi helped Itachi with),which happened after Obito was dead.The reason why people insist that Tobi and obito are the same person is because of the resemblance it their names.Possibly,because kakashi's sharingan(left eye) from obito, has power that is whatever he sees it can transfer anything in other dimension/place , and just like Tobi can travel anywhere by dimension by using his sharingan (right eye). They're both using the same sharingan and powers ('cos it come to only one person, obito, and obito himself is Tobi(Possibly)). Kakashi (in manga/anime )can't actually do what Madara/Tobi/obito do 'cos he is not original uchiha(he can access the powers of sharingan but can't deactivate it, which is why he keeps it covered), and only true uchiha can perfect the power of their own sharingan(This is wrong becausethere is plenty of proof towards it but plenty against as kakashi is able to awaken Mangyeko sharingan).

Who is Tobi's brother?

His name is madara uchiha and he possesses the sharingan so his brothers are sasuke and itachi.

If Tobi is Madara Uchiha why does it show his right eye at level 2 Sharingan when Madara has the Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan?

Tobi is not Madara Uchiha. He is Obito Uchiha, whose right eye is his original Mangekyo Sharingan eye. His other eye is the eternal one, considering he can evolve it to the Rinnegan form, it's most likely to be one of Madara's.

Has Tobi awakened the mangekyo sharingan?

no he hasn't if he had he would already have been able to use Amaterasu or susanoo

Madara Uchiha isn't Tobi what happened to him?

for real Tobi is the the 1st hokages brother the reason why the 1st hokage died was him and his brother both had the mangekyou sharingan and his brothers sharingan[uchia madra]was not as strong as his so what he did was rip the 1st hokages eyes out and replaced it with his sharinganand that's why he died of his brother uchia madra. AND UCHIHA MADRA IS TOBI. wrong Tobi died and madra was using him as a guise to order around pain and go unknown to konaha.
