It was said that the rikudou is a monk.
Then what if, one day that monk was jumping from trees to trees and he just fell on the juubi's poop. Then he accidentally eat some of those poop and he gained some portion of juubi's power.
Then he was looking for a water/river to clean up his body and he just did. Then he dive on that water/river and drink a cup or two. But it turns out, it was also the juubi's pee.
With that, by eating some of juubi's poop and drinking some of his pee, the rikudou gained an unbelievable power, then later on, he gained his rinnegan.
Maybe that's the origin of the rinnegan.
Anyway, it could easily have been a case like with Hashirama, where he was the only one who possessed his unique Bloodline Limit. Or it could even have been that the Rikudou Sennin didn't want it passed down and used his ability to shape reality to ensure that.
My personal opinion was that Rikudou Sennin intentionally placed all the detrimental side effects that comes from the Sharingan within his son's eyes because he thought it would deter them from abusing it. He thought they'd think twice before taking the eyes of their siblings, or sacrificing their eyes to use Izanagi, or whatever.Originally Posted by M3J
But then time passed and we found out that the Uchiha themselves were making new doujutsu techniques as time went on (Izanami). This leads me to believe that the powers simply diluted as generations passed, causing the Rinnegan eyes to degrade more and more as the clans split further and further apart. Though that still doesn't answer why there's absolutely NO side effects that come from Senju strength of body.
I mean, to get MS, you have to experience despair from a lost loved one, you have to take the eyes of a relative to gain EMS, you have to become a Frankenstein to get Rinnegan... what the hell do you have to do to get Senju class chakra reserves other than being born?
But how do we know that one had to take the eyes of siblings or whether MS was possible? Or if Sharingan even existed back then? Tobi or Itachi said that Madara and Izuna were the first Uchiha to awaken their Mangekyo, so if that's true then Rikudou Sennin had no need to worry about that at the time.
But I could see the second paragraph happening. Likely there's no side effect because the Senju do nothing to their body like the Uchihia mess with the eyes, whether Izanagi or Mangekyo. No idea why the Sharingan doujutsu has levels to unlock while Senju doesn't... could be due to the power or as you said, Rikudou Sennin putting detrimental due to the power?
Roughly any idea how much time was between SO6P and Madara ???
If Rinnegan was diluted then the time gap maybe ~1000 years.
And in 1000 years only Madara and Izuna were the ones to awaken MS.
IF SO6P arranged all that i mean having side effects of Sharingan and downside of Sharingan jutsus , then it was one hell of a foresight
Do we know for sure that sage had Rinnengan before fighting Juubi or he got after that ???
We don't know either way, though it makes more sense he had it before, especially after the recent chapter.
I think the question to answer here is not what is the origin of rinnegan but what/who is the SO6P.
1. The sage was creator of ninjutsu, therefore, no ninjutsu existed before him. It would be interesting to know by what feat did the sage was able to seal the jyubi within himself.
2. How did the sage created ninjutsu? Isnt jyubi the source of all this? Or the jyubi shared the process of harnessing natural energy?
I personally believe that uzumaki's were more close to the sage than any other. They were the expert with sealing and the sage required only that to capture the jyubi. Everything else that followed came through the jyubi by some permutation and combination.
Samurai don't use ninjutsu but they can harness chakra. I am assuming the Sage simply figured out a way to harness the chakra in a better way, in the form of ninjutsu. The Rinnegan is probably what gave him this ability. Not long after, he taught others and then we have everyone experimenting, and thus the shinobi world that Hashirama and Madara grew up in began it's infant stages which was probably a 1000 or so years ago.
And I am not sure why so many believe the Uzumaki's were closer to the Sage. It is told perfectly to us that the Senju and Uchiha are the closest decedents. The Uzumaki's were related to the Senju but it is plainly obvious that the Senju were closer. Notice it was Hashirama's cells, not a Uzumaki's that were needed to form the Rinnegan.

Or he could have created ninjutsu and handseals, though that's weird.
