Shinto Legends and Itachi

So far in the series, we see Itachi flaunting 2 types of techniques with his Sharingan, the Tsukiyomi and the Amaterasu, both powerful doujutsu that it seems only he can do due to his Uchiha blood. Do you know that the names of these 2 techniques are actually names of Goddesses from ancient Shinto Legends? Here in The Scroll House, our scribes found a version of the story of the Shinto Legend on the Creation of the World.

 




 

Shinto Legend on the Creation of the World

At the beginning of the World, there is one Being by the name of Izanagi. After a visit to the Netherworlds, he used water to purify his eyes, and thus, from the left eye, created Amaterasu, while from his right eye, created Tsuki-Yomi. Amaterasu was the Sun Goddess and Tsuki-Yomi the Moon Goddess. Finally, Susanowo the Storm God, was born from Izanagi's nose.

Amaterasu and Susanowo argued and fought each other for supreme power. Susanowo finally went on a killing rampage to prove his strength and Amaterasu hid in a cave in heaven.

Similarities between the Legend and Uchiha Itachi

Susanowo - Itachi, like Susanowo, went on a rampage to prove his strength, although Susanowo did not went to the extent of wiping out his entire family.

Tsuki-Yomi - The Moon Goddess. Itachi's technique to brings the victim into a time warp zone where there is always a bloody red moon. Legends also has it that the Tsuki-Yomi killed Uke-Mochi, the Goddess of Food (Amaterasu's close friend) after she offended the Moon Goddess, making Amaterasu so angry she vowed to never see Tsuki-Yomi again (explaining why there are days and nights). Tsuki-Yomi's act of violence could also be the inspiration for the red moon in Itachi's technique.

Amaterasu - The Sun Goddess. Itachi's black fire technique to burn through barriers, also known as Great Shining Heaven.
