4. He Used The Tsukuyomi Twice
Everyone knows this powerful technique that traps its targets in a fictitious world. You would expect such powers to be used once in a while. However, Obito Uchiha has used this dangerous move more than once.
On-Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie, Obito used the Infinite Tsukuyomi on Naruto and Sakura. During this attack, he trapped them in a world that was housed in a crystal ball.
5. His Direct Ancestor Might Have Founded Konoha Village

8. The Mangeyko Sharingan Does Not Hurt Obito
The Mangeyko Sharingan is an advanced technique that can be used by a few members of the Uchiha Clan. When used, it can turn the user blind or result in bleeding eyes. Most times, this problem is caused by the pressure that comes with the technique.
However, Obito does not have this problem. Even if he uses the Mangeyko Sharingan, he doesn’t feel any pain or lose blood. Furthermore, he still maintains his eyesight without going blind.
The White Zetsu may protect his body from the effects of the Mangeyko Sharingan. Some theories claim that Obito boasts of stronger eyes than other users of the technique.
9. Obito was in Boruto’s Dad
Before appearing on Boruto’s Dad Shippuden, the villain made minor appearances in the Boruto Dad manga series.

10. His Story Has Major Plot Holes
Although Obito Uchiha was a major character, there are many mysteries concerning his life. For instance, no one knows why he can use the Mangeyko ability without suffering any effects. Surprisingly, other users like Kakashi, Itachi, and Sasuke do not enjoy the same privilege.
Furthermore, there are tons of occasions where Itachi cheated death too often. On the franchise, Itachi has endured dangerous rock slides, fights, and even extractions. Most times, he came out as if nothing happened.
Another interesting thing was the formation of Akatsuki. Since Obito has powerful abilities, he could take on the Leaf Village without any help. Also, the other members died off without offering any major assistance. For this reason, we are confused about the reasons for creating the organization.
