Hey there, this is the Mega Sharingan Discussion thread, where threads about the Sharingan in all its forms come together. There's a number of different topics in here from different times, but they're all on the same subject. Any old threads about the Sharingan will be merged in here after they have become unused for a while. ~Raine
Okay, so everyone remembers how Kakashi got his Sharingan eye, right? Obito was dying, so Rin took it out of his skull and used it to replace Kakashi's damaged one. I found that kind of ridiculous at the time, especially considering all the trouble Orochimaru had went through to capture Sasuke and his Sharingan. Wouldn't it be a lot easier for Orochimaru to simply have his subordinates kill Sasuke, then have Kabuto take the eyes out of Sasuke's head and implant it in his? If Rin was able to do it as a young, probably fairly inexperienced medical ninja, why couldn't Kabuto, who's arguably the best medical ninja in the series outside of Tsunade? You could make the argument that Orochimaru wanted Sasuke's body as well, but it's not like he's been particular about bodies in the past. He could take the eyes with him to each new, younger body.
This is just something that's been bothering me for a while now.

1. Kakashi can't turn off his sharingan, which leads us to believe Oro wouldn't be able to either. Having both in, he wouldn't be able to cover them and still see. If he left them uncovered, he'd constantly lose chakra.
2. Everytime he changed bodies and implanted the sharingan, the Uchiha blood in the sharingan would become more and more diluded until they were possibly unusable.
3. Plot is more important than practicallity (is that a word? XD). Same reason Oro is training Sasuke vs just keeping him locked up in a permanent genjutsu or something. ^_^
I believe that obito had the sharingan activated when it was removed from him, my guess is that if he tries to take sasuke's eye's or eye that sasuke can just turn them off thus foiling Oro and leaving him with only to sharingan alternatives (kakashi, Itachi)...
Lol, maybe he's gonna clone sasuke, then take all the Sharingans out of the clone sasuke's then give each one of his subordinates one eye hahahahah a whole army of one-eyed sharingan hidden sound nins
actually that wouldnt be a bad idea...seeing how orochimaru was toying w/ his human experiments by inserting the 1st genes. he can insert sasukes' genes into ppl
if successfull, you will see an army of sharigan nins.
wouldn't it be easier to just transfer into sasuke's body and gain the ability to turn off the sharingan? he is going to transfer himself into somebody else's body anyways so why not just stay with the plan and use sasuke's body? he also gets sasuke's knowledge so that is also a bonus.
Well, that's what he planned on doing in the first place. But to do so, Orochimaru had to send his five best goons after him (all of whom died, I might add), while basically staving off death back at the hideout. Because he opted to take Sasuke and not just his eyes, Orochimaru was forced to transfer himself into someone else's body before Sasuke could get there, and he can't execute another body transfer for three years (which seems to conveniently line up with Akatsuki's plans, but whatever).
But yeah, you guys bring up a good point. I didn't remember that Kakashi is unable to turn off the Sharingan, meaning that Orochimaru would probably be walking around blindfolded all the time if he had just taken Sasuke's eyes.
