Naruto and Sasuke have been the best of friends and the worst of enemies. The two of them have come a long way since the beginning of Naruto, and they are currently the two strongest shinobi without a shadow of a doubt.
Both of them have pushed each other to their limits, and it is a big reason why they have grown to be so strong. There have always been a few things that have separated the two such as their powers and personalities. In this post, we will be discussing five things that only Sasuke can do and five things that only Naruto can do.
10 Sasuke Can: Space-Time Dojutsu
Sasuke increased in power massively ever since he received the power of the Sage of Six Paths. Sasuke awakened a unique Rinnegan in his left eye. Unlike the normal Rinnegan, it has six tomoe and grants Sasuke a few more extra abilities. One such capability is access to the Space-time dojutsu.
Sasuke is able to create a dark portal that allows him to travel through dimensions, and he can also take a limited number of people with him. This ability came in handy when Naruto was taken away by Momoshiki Otsutsuki. This is one of the five things that Naruto is incapable of doing.
9 Naruto Can: Truth-Seeking Balls
Just like his friend, Sasuke, Naruto also received new abilities during the Fourth Great Ninja War. Naruto unlocked the Six Paths Sage Mode and had six truth-seeking balls with it. These truth-seeking balls are a very overpowered weapon.
They can be used to both attack and defend. If a normal person touches these truth-seeking balls, they will lose the part that makes contact with it. It is also one of the few things that can hurt a reanimated person. These balls have a specific range, and they are useless outside it.
8 Sasuke Can: Stealing Chakra
When Sasuke fought against Naruto at the Valley of End after they sealed Kaguya, it was just breathtaking in every regard. Naruto and Sasuke would finally bring an end to their rivalry. Both had different goals, and this fight would prove who would achieve theirs.
Sasuke was at a disadvantage when it came to chakra, but with the Rinnegan at his disposal, he managed to overcome that weakness temporarily. He was able to steal the chakra of all the tailed beasts and used it to create Indra's arrow.
7 Naruto Can: Sage Mode
Naruto really lacked power when Naruto: Shippuden started. He created the Rasenshuriken, but it was dangerous to him as well. The need for him to learn the Sage Mode arose when Jiraiya was killed by the Six Paths of Pain. Naruto trained with the toads of Mount Myoboku and perfected the Sage Mode.
He is only the second person who was able to perfect it after Minato Namikaze. As the series progressed, Naruto could use the Sage Mode much more efficiently. Naruto also gained access to Six Paths Sage Mode after receiving Hagoromo's chakra. Sasuke is unable to use any kind of Sage Mode.
6 Sasuke Can: Genjutsu
Despite Naruto being the most powerful shinobi in history, he can't use genjutsu. Even in Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, He hasn't shown that he is capable of using genjutsu. Sasuke is an entirely different story on the other hand. He is undoubtedly the best genjutsu user in the series currently, and he can cast powerful genjutsu.
Sasuke can use his Eternal Mangekyou as well as the Rinnegan to cast genjutsu. The Rinnegan genjutsu is very powerful as it even affects tailed beasts easily.
5 Naruto Can: Beat Sasuke
Naruto and Sasuke have been rivals for a very long time, but they have huge respect for one another. This is actually an intensely debated topic within the Naruto community. Is Sasuke really capable of defeating Naruto? The answer is simple, and it is no. He can't beat Naruto in a fight.
When the two were fighting at the Valley of End for the second time, Sasuke was clearly trying to kill Naruto. However, Naruto was holding back because he didn't want to kill him. He just wanted to take Sasuke back to the Hidden Leaf.
4 Sasuke Can: Susanoo
Sasuke awakened the Mangekyou Sharingan after Itachi's death. He implanted Itachi's eyes and received the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan. The Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan made Sasuke more powerful and drained less of his chakra whenever he used it.
Sasuke also gained the ability known as Susanoo. The Susanoo is a giant humanoid structure that is made up of the user's chakra. Sasuke can bring forth a full-body Susanoo that is capable of shattering mountains with ease.
3 Naruto Can: Recover
One of the good things about having the Nine-Tails sealed inside your body is the incredible recovery that it provides. Naruto can use the power of the Nine-Tails to recover from the damage he receives in a fight.
This ability is activated when Naruto opens the Nine-Tails Chakra Mode. Along with amplifying his power and speed, Naruto can also recover at an astonishing pace. It is an ability that comes in handy every now and then during a fight.
2 Sasuke Can: Amenotejikara
This is another unique ability that has been granted to Sasuke. This power is unique to Sasuke's Rinnegan, and it allows Sasuke to switch places with objects. It is a very powerful ability, especially when Sasuke can use it several times to get out of difficult situations.
Currently, he has much better control over his Rinnegan compared to when he first awakened it. Sasuke has obviously managed to work on it and learned how to use it effectively. This is one of the things that Naruto is incapable of doing.
1 Naruto Can: Jinchuriki Mode
For a long time, Naruto was on the bad side of the villagers due to being a jinchuriki of the Nine-Tails. The Nine Tails was responsible for several deaths, including that of Minato Namikaze, the Fourth Hokage. However, Naruto wasn't stopped by this.
He kept on working hard and trained to become the person that he is now. Naruto's jinchuriki mode grants him much more power, speed, and durability. So, it is a convenient ability.
