I voted sharingan, cause you can upgrade it to mangyeko which gives u access to some cool moves. Also I reckon sharingan looks way better than byakugan.

come on byukugan does not even have 360 degree vision, there is a blind spot if anyone remembers. and the byukugan cannot see through genjutsu, they are masters of taijutsu, the sharingan is the master of genjutsu. plus the sharingan looks way cooler.

Well, saying they're nicer people than the uchiha isn't saying much, is it? It's like claiming to be nicer than the Manson family...... As true as it is, it doesn't mean much....
As for the sharingan looking cooler? Hell yeah! But I don't know about Mangekyo... Everyone's is different, right?

Well... really. One of the main advantages of byakugan is that it can see through everything from all angles, right? But when we stop to think about it, nobody seems to have any problems dodging kunais shot from their backs, or telling when someone is trying to sneak up on them. At all. Orochimaru was able to tell that Naruto, Sakura and Sai were hiding behind the bushes far away from where he was, and that Sai was hiding underground later on. We've seen it a thousand times.

Plus, sharingan got extra stupid on shippuden, it's no even a debate anymore.

That isn't only what byakugan is for and even a user who has it doesn't need byakugan to do that so no, not really.

Because I KNOW you're going to reply and try to argue, I'll just give the whole history of this argument and get it over with:

By following through here, we can see that the boldened and underlined text in the last quote is actually a self-destroying argument, which goes on to prove my post instead of countering it.

The whole point behind th argument which YOU raised is that the Byakugan's 360 deg vision is NOT useless. The point was raised that it IS, since practically any competent ninja's sixth sense helps him avoid/dodge/counter attacks from behind, anyway.

And after all that arguing, I don't even need to form an argument to finish it off, seeing as you so beautifully put my point forward anyway.

Well, I think Might Guy is master of taijutsu.

Hyuuga are masters of chakra as physical weapons. Hell, their spinning jutsu isn't much different that rasengan. They both leave a huge crater once used. Maybe that's where the 4th got the idea? Gentle Fist, superhuman tracking ability, spinning chakra field, the ability to project chakra from their chakra points for added agility, one strike killing ability ... I'd say they are more than just formidable.

Uchiha aren't masters of genjutsu. Kurenai's clan is. Uchiha are copycat ninja and are known widely for that. The MS is what makes the Uchiha monsters.

*laughs* Wow get a grip.

How many times does someone need to tell you that that isn't the only thing Byakugan is useful for. Any ninja can do you what you claimed, with or without the Byakugan clearly. Byakugan would just enhance it by lets say oh... a thousand meters? While also seeing through solid objects and the chakra circulatory system. You seem to think the only useful thing Byakugan is for is like some "mind's eye" ability that a lot of the ninja have shown to possess, although its evident dodging something on instinct and being able to know where a person is without them seeing you from hundreds to thousands of meters away, pinpointing multiple targets simulateously and without having to move one's eyes or head at all and effortlessly scouting and tracking individuals is not the same thing. Also supporting that deadly hand-to-hand combat style that can dispatch someone in a single blow by aiming at their internal organs that are tied in with one's chakra circulatory system? Yeah its real useless. *thumbs up*

And I didn't raise an argument. I just disagreed with relatively simple responses while you resorted to derogatory insults. Seems to me like you're the one who cares more about arguing. ;\

I'd also like to point out that the byakugan must enhance the brain somehow. In order to be able to take advantage of 360 degree vision your brain must be able to process everything the eyes see in that 360 degree scope. Perhaps that's how the sharingan evolved into a copy cat doujutsu. It can see, retain and rapidly recall.

Instead of using broad range vision that the hyuuga use, the sharigan was born from byakugan users who learned how to focus the broad range into a single point, all the while still using the superior brain power it must take to observe and register all that happens when using the byakugan.

You'd have the ability to copy movements because of the super cognitive powers a byakugan user must have in order to see all the things happening, and probably a strong enough mind to retain what you've seen. You'd be able to predict movements because you're reading the chakra, not the fighter. And chakra reacts internally before a fighter moves externally.

That would make sense, at least to me, how the sharingan evolved from the byakugan.

Bravo, that was an excellent deduction.

No 1: By opposing someone else's opinion in a public forum, you are automatically doing what is known as "presenting an argument". Note as well that this is a debatable topic. It's a VERSUS topic. The title is: "Byakugan VS Sharingan".

No. 2: Yes. I actually love arguing. I like making people look stupid. It's fun.

No 3: I did not present 'derogatory insults' (this is a form of tortology, by the way; you're pretty much saying "Insultingly lewd/base insults"). I think what you're trying to say is that I presented 'derogatory comments'. But apparently when your small, insufficient vocabulary is stretched as far as the word 'derogatory' you begin to use the word out of context. The only time I had insulted you in my previous posts was when I called you 'stupid'.

However, the way I used this word, 'stupid', may be described as many things, including, but not limited to: ''unnecessary', 'uncalled for', and 'in bad taste', but it was not in any sense, 'derogatory', which means 'base', 'lewd', 'salacious', and the likes.

Anyway: I'm going to just move on to another topic now, seeing as you've pretty much strayed form the original argument, and are pointlessly rambling on. The original idea was: "Byakugan's 360 degree vision is useless, seeing as others are well able to cope without it, and even avoid danger from their blind sopts without it as well."

You've moved on to: "Byakugan as a whole is not useless, seeing as it can not ONLY see 360 degrees, but is also able to, (And I quote: ) support a deadly hand-to-hand combat style that can dispatch someone in a single blow by aiming at their internal organs that are tied in with one's chakra circulatory system, and is also able to pinpoint multiple targets simulateously and without having to move one's eyes or head at all and effortlessly scout and track individuals."

At this point, the argument now falls through and is no longer what I was originally debating, and therefore I see no reason to continue bashing my head against a thick, unthinking, unrelentingly stubborn wall.

I'm sure we all agree that whilest the Byakugan's 360 degree vision is pretty cool, it has been shown amply that all the more skilled ninjas in the series do not need to have 360 degree vision in order to protect their blind spots. This was the root of the argument. Case closed. God...

Uchiha are master of genjutsu, any competent sharingan user can create high level genjutsu with the bat of an eye...literally, also mimicry, fire and genjutsu is what the sharingan is known for, the eyes even look like hypnotism wheels when they spin what better hint is that.

Also I would rather have the sharingan cos I just have to have buy a kitten raise it to be my best friend and kill it off to gain the Mangekyou Sharingan! Also with the sharingan get a mirror put yourself into a fantasy and drift away.

LOL!

When Itachi said your best friend, I think he meant a human bond. But good idea, lol!
