A trait carried by the Uchiha clan in naruto. It's easily recognisable as the eye goes red, and depending on the user level will have 1 to 3 dots around each pupil. 1 dot meaning beginer user, 2 mauture user and 3 dots meaning advanced user. Uchiha Sasuke started with 2 dots in the right eye and 1 in the left. Uchiha Itatchi was the same. Hatake Kakashi started with 2 dots but because his eye was a transplant he can't de activate it.

The main feature of a Sharigan user is it's abilty to copy Ninjistu, Genjistu and Taijistu just by seeing the technique only once. Hatake Kakashi has mastered this and has discovered what the Sharigan eye was really used for.

First comes the Form manipulation which is where the Sharigan user uses the eye of insight to copy the opponents movements. Secondly is the Technique manipulation which the Sharigan user uses the insight and the copy wheel copy technique to copy an opponents justu which combines with the Form manipulation to freak out the opponent. Finaly using the copy wheel hyponosis technique the Sharigan user hypnotises the oppoent and suggests things that they are going say which means they can copy, this is combine with a genjistu technique and the other manipulations to give the Sharigan user the illusion of seeing into the future, this is best seen during the first fight against Zabuza
Sasuke: i might as well use this time to test out my 'things'

Rock Lee:...

Get the sharigan mug.
The eye Kakashi has in the Series "Naruto" its an eye that can focus on taijutsu, ninjutsu, genjutsu. Also the Uchiha Clan had it too, but after Itachi killed them all only three people have the Sharigan which is Itachi, Sasuke, and Kakashi.
" Its Sharigan Kakashi. His eye could detect any movement "
