Description: Susanoo, named for the God of the Sea and Storms, is a technique which uses the Mangekyo Sharingan eye to create a sword wielding spectral form which will surround the user. This Jutsu is generated by both Mangekyo eyes. Susanoo will first form around the user as a skeleton. This skeletal form will then generate muscle and armor for battle and wield both a sword and shield.
The sword wielded by Itachi's version of Susanoo (Sword of Totsuka) is formed out of the sake in the gourd it holds, meaning the sword has no true physical form. This legendary weapon, known as Totsuka's Sword and the Sakegari (Sake Cutting) Long Sword, utilizes the main ability of the jutsu. Anyone or anything cut by the blade will be sealed away into a Genjutsu of blissful oblivion until the end of time. It is said the sword is thus the ultimate counter to Orochimaru's Kusanagi Sword. The shield of Itachi's version is known as Yata's Mirror. It is said this shield can defend against any attack. Together the sword and shield will make the Susanoo user nearly invincible. Like other Mangekyo techniques, usage of Susanoo will damages the eyes and health of the user (but in a bigger rate than any other). Other than the two arsenals already mentioned, Itachi's Susanoo also has an access to 'Yasaka's Magatama' though it is not known if this is special to his version.
