I'm not a huge Naruto follower so correct me if I'm wrong. The Byakugan basically lets you see 360 degress for several miles. You can even see through objects.
The Sharingan allows you to see the intricate details of another persons Jutsu, allowing you to instantly recognize what is being used against you and counter it, copy it for further use so that now you can perfurm that jutsu as well, and on the high end trap people in their own minds allowing you to torture them for a year in mere moments.
If that's correct I would think you would have to lean towards the Sharingan in most instances.
The Sharingan is much more powerful due to the special Jutsu's it imparts to the wielder.
However it has the disadvantage of straining the eyes for those Jutsu's (eventually leading to blindness)
The Byakugan is better for insight and scouting, the Sharingan is better for general battle. (though combined with the Jyuuken style Byakugan becomes a more lethal hand to hand tool)
" ByakuganJust gettig to Pain's level of power is good enough for me :p
@Kayak said:" Neither Rinnegan stomps both "But the rinnegan is even more obscure than the Byakugan and Sharingan so nobody could tach you to use it at fll rikudo sage like power.... "
" The Byakugan's secrets and origins haven't been revealed, nor has it's true abilities been developed to the extent of the Sharingan (really, the Sharingan is almost the center of the series). Even so, I think I'd prefer the Byakugan. "Byakugan gives you some serious Taijutsu skills. That alone makes it more epic
