Re: Sharingan = a locked Rinnegan ? :O
nice theory here gleaming in drabness!

i don't think so dude. rinnegan is a sole bloodline limit exclusive to the so6p. we don't know the extent of the powers yet, but the so6p wearing the rinnegan will tell us so...and only him...not his older son...nor nagato...
sharingan is a derivation from the byakugan. it can never be the transmigration eye which controls all six nature chakra manipulation. the uchiha clan members, as descendants of the hyuuga clan, have varied ocular abilities. and to highlight these abilities are "the mangekyou" mystery.
nagato could have had inherited the rinnegan - contrary to madara's claim that he gave the eyes to the child nagato. madara is a liar, he was wrong to mention it was not his doing that the kyuubi attacked the leaf. madara was dead wrong when a good minato narrated to Naruto how madara controlled the beast to attack the village.
nagato's rinnegan origin must be told by someone with more credible stature in the manga -- old folks from the rain country perhaps.
byakugan can never be feted against a rinnegan....it is never an apple to apple thing. and rinnegan could never be a locked byakugan (it is i who say this..and no one else), similar to a sharingan as a locked/sealed rinnegan.
there are other mysteries re these doujutsus...one is ranmaru's ocular power as an unnamed bloodline limit.
sorry dude...don't mean to spoil your thread...nevertheless it is a catchy thought!
