How much do you whant to bet Sasuke is going to have a fight and then evolve Rinnegan out of his but? I am ready to bet money (after he get's some senju DNA in the future of course).
Sasuke is going to remember his kid sister that he does not have getting molested by Danzo and then BAM Rinnegan pops in his eyes and then they al go "WOW, his hate is over 9000!!!!"....
As far as EMS is concerned, then whatever the reasons it is still a clan specific ritual.
As far as taijutsu goes, I don't know if I can call Sasuke a better taijutsu user or not. Maybe I'll need to check back to see when these two last used taijutsu.
Hands down, although his perception of events improved a bit, seen against his fight with Third Raikage, Naruto still lacks the intellect Sasuke possesses.
In Naruto it does make more sense. Like the the Super Saiyan form in DB, Rinnegan is considered a legend, and it has a build up. What I think could have been left out however is the Eternal Mangekyou. It strikes me as a completely unnecessary upgrade and "necessity for evolution". Why would you need "permanent eyes" to achieve a greater and "complete" form of the Sharingan? Couldn't "the eyes of God" give you permanent vision automatically? It's pretty stupid logic to need to remove your sibling's eyes to gain a permanent set, and only then be able to achieve Rinnegan (or not really). Having Sharingan > MS + Senju DNA + immense training/whatever = Rinnegan would be better in my opinion and be a more logical form of evolution, if you can call it that. I realize it makes the Rinnegan more easily achieved, but to me it makes more sense. I've never been a big fan of the whole eye swapping, DNA implanting deal anycase. Kakashi was cool when he was an exception, the rest have been dull as hell. Now I'm sad it's 100% confirmed Nagato's eyes weren't "Nagato's eyes" but just more eye swapping, even illogical at that.
Also yes, the Byakugan has truly become a wonderful side kick since ages ago. It's rather out of place in the Narutoverse right now.

Raikage himself stated that his full speed attack was only dodged once, and the only man to do it was Yondaime Hokage.
^ That must have been with Body flicker then. You can't call that base speed. As it's in conjunction with two techniques. Also, sasuke has dodged Bee's attack as well, which he stated was only dodged by A. Either they are beck to neck, or I don't know what to say.
To be honest, I'm not sure how to interpret this, either.
Other than Sasuke being at around a respectable speed level, nothing would come out of it.
If someone else provides more reference about it, that'd be great. Provided it's possible, of course.
I may be way off but is it possible that Madara didn't believe he was going to gain the Rinnegan when he combined Hashirama's cells into his body?
IMO, it is very possible that he did that just so he could extend his life, not gain new power. After all he is trying to cast Infinite Tsyukiyomi, a Sharigan technique, not a Rinnegan one. So is it possible he wouldn't even need it?

In regards to Sasuke's base speed, his is very fast and is able to counter attacks like he did with Sasuke thanks to his Sharigan and physique which grants him great speed.
His fastest speed of course is when he uses Shushin. The same could be said for the Raikage, as by only using his super charged shushin was he able to dodge Amaterasu.
Sucks that Kishi decided to make Mangekyo common, though. Itachi and Madara should have been the only ones to have Mangekyo or at least, Susano'o. Sad thing with shounen manga is that power scales tend to go out of whack when they don't need to increase so much.
Unlike Super Saiyan form though, Rinnegan is extremely rare, having have had one Rinnegan user until Madara. There was one Super Saiyan before Goku's time, apparently, then we had Broly, then Goku, then Vegeta, then Gohan, then Trunks, and as far as I know, Goten. I guess it takes a feeling related to death, like fear of death or anger at death due to not accomplishing anything, to unlock Rinnegan? It's definitely hard as hell, apparently.Quote:
Kyuubi- Foreshadowed since, well, chapter 1
Kage Bushin- Forbidden scroll, again chapter 1
Rasengan- Foreshadowed a chap prior by Jiraiya, trained for 2 weeks for it
Rasen Shuriken- Foreshadowed for, like, a whole arc
Sage Mode- Foreshadowed
Chakra Mode- Foreshadowed thanks to the Toads, with Naruto meeting Bee to harness Kyuubi's powers
Bijuu Mode- Foreshadowed by Bee during the training to harness Chakra Mode, saying how Naruto's link with Kyuubi was imperfect
Cursed Seal- Not foreshadowed, obtained for free ( both lv 1 and 2 )
Chidori variants- Foreshadowed
Orochimaru's absorbing jutsu- Foreshadowed, despite Oro being a retard
Kuchiyose- Not foreshadowed, like, at all, but its still a jutsu so meh.
Scroll power- Foreshadowed
I see both of them not being all that different, really
Kage bunshin wasn't foreshadowed, it didnt' need to be. We saw Naruto train to master kage bunshin, rasengan, FRS, wind element, and Sage Mode, as well as SM FRS. He won most of his fights without much trouble, even against Pain. We also saw Sasuke technically train his MS against the kage and Bee, two fights that he didn't escape unscathed from, Cursed Seal wasn't a free powerup as he had a chance of dying after he was bitten, and it and CS2 corroded his body, if I recall. Or at least CS2. Kyuubi's chakra doesn't do much damage by comparison until it gets to the fourth tail, and now, there's no damage. I'm not sure if Sasuke after the timeskip felt the effects of the CS2, since there's no hint he did. In any case, we didn't see Sasuke shoot out Amaterasu like a pro immediately or use some kind of jutsu that made no sense, like his Susano'o usin chidori, whereas Naruto used FRS in Kyuubi Mode, even a mini-FRS.
Hell, Kyuubi turned butt buddies with Naruto out of nowhere and had a 180 degree personality change. That is far worse than anything Sasuke has done, although probably because I believe Naruto will beat Sasuke anyway and thus don't care about his powerups.
