The Sharingan (写輪眼, Literally meaning: Copy Wheel Eye, Meaning (Viz):Mirror Wheel Eye) is the dōjutsu kekkei genkai of the Uchiha clan that appears selectively among its members.

When a wielder of this kekkei genkai experiences a powerful emotional condition with regards to a person precious to them, their brain releases a special form of chakra that affects the optic nerves, transforming the eyes into Sharingan; for that reason the Sharingan is described as an “eye that reflects the heart” (心を写す瞳, Kokoro o utsusu hitomi).
