If you had to describe all the main battle at fights in the entire Naruto series, what would you say? “Rasengan & Chidori” I know, right? Well, there are basically 8 users whom we saw using this high-level Jutsu. So, today we are going to know who these 8 Rasengan users are.
Who invented the Rasengan
So, who invented this Jutsu?
According to the Manga Minato Namikaze, the 4th Hokage is the creator of this great Jutsu. He created it following the tailed beast bomb. Like a tailed beast bomb, he rotated the chakra on his palm and practiced it for 3 years. So it took 3 years of his time to make this Jutsu. Well, his son managed to learn it in 7 days from Jiraiya Sensei.
According to the Anime, Ashura Otsutsuki created it. In the anime, the studio tried to show that almost every Jutsu was invented by those 2 brothers. For example, in the anime, Indra Otsutsuki used Amaterasu against Ashura.
8) Momoshiki Otsutsuki used Rasengan
In the Boruto movie, we saw one of the Otsutsuki clan members, Momoshiki Otsutsuki enters to collect the tail beasts. While attacking the leaf to capture, he used a huge Rasengan. Well, he was not making the S rank Jutsu actually. Instead, he used his Rinnegan to absorb the Rasengan and make it a lot larger.
7) Boruto Uzumaki learned it from Konohamaru
The son of Naruto who has a show of his own. Or should I say an accidental mistake by Naruto & Hinata? Well, all jokes apart, Boruto has learned the Rasengan to prove his worth as a shinobi to Sasuke. To be a student of Sasuke Boruto learned this S rank Jutsu from his Sensei Konohamaru Sarutobi.
6) Konohamaru Sarutobi learned it from Naruto
Our boy, Konohamaru learned a few Jutsu from our boy Naruto. From the very beginning of the show, we saw them growing up fighting their own way. Naruto was always an idol for Konohamaru. That’s why he wanted to learn Jutsu from him, not Ebisu sensei.
Hell, he learned Jutsu from Naruto. He learned the super sexy pervy ninjutsu. Hahaha.
Well, aside from the harem Jutsu, Konohamaru learned a very high scale S-rank Jutsu. With the help of his mastery over this high-level Jutsu and the will of fire, Konohamaru defeated Pain. Well, killed one of the Six Pains actually.
5) Kakashi Hatake copied Rasengan
With the help of Obito’s Sharingan, Kakashi can copy every ninjutsu as long as that’s not Kekkei Genkai. Back then, when Kakashi trained Naruto to make Naruto’s Rasengan to the next level where he could use his chakra nature. Kakashi used his Rasengan and clashed it against Naruto’s to see which one is stronger. Well, with the help of his Sharingan he could master any Jutsu.
He didn’t earn the nickname, ‘copy ninja’ for nothing did he?
4) Naruto Uzumaki perfected Rasengan
Of course, our boy Naruto who used Rasengan hundred times more than any other characters on this list. He learned this Jutsu from his master Jiraiya. He learned that the 4th Hokage invented this Jutsu, but couldn’t perfect it as he didn’t have that much time.
Later, Naruto perfected the Jutsu. He used his wind chakra nature and made it, Wind Style RasenShuriken. Later, in the war, he added chakra from all the 9 different tailed beasts to his Rasengan. A feat that no one could have ever accomplished.
Naruto also used Massive, Sage art, Sage art Massive Rasengan & so on.
3) Jiraiya taught Naruto
The one who taught Naruto Rasengan. Well, in those three years he taught a lot of stuff I mean. From chakra control, summoning to Rasengan he taught Naruto a lot. Actually, Jiraiya was the first person who learned the Jutsu after Minato created it. Jiraiya learned this high level S rank Jutsu in just 3 days.
2) Minato Namikaze invented it
The legend who saved the Konoha, whom we saw in the constant foreshadowing in the early Naruto episodes. Minato invented the Jutsu inspired by the tailed beast bombs. Well, learning a new Jutsu is one thing. But creating something totally new that takes some serious skill. Well, our boy Minato got that skill.
It took him three years to create this Jutsu. But, for the little time he got, he could not fully perfect it. I mean, he couldn’t add his chakra nature with it. Later his son, Naruto did it of course.
1) Ashura Otsutsuki created Rasengan
In the anime, they added a few extra stuff. Among those, it also includes the first use of the Rasengan. In the manga, we learned that the 4th Hokage Minato Namikaze created the Jutsu. However, in Anime, they show us that the younger son of the Sage of Six Path- Ashura Otsutsuki created this Jutsu at first.
