through evolution, mutations, etc.
Have sex with you sister, mother, and cousins (specially the hot ones)How to build a bloodline limit?
well...not having a wide or deep knowledge of genetics, the best I can give is a guess...
but guessing on something theoretical, we can all do that cause its fun to voice our opinion!
IMO, Ninja Bloodlines could be compared to being double-jointed, already unscrambling extremely long words without thinking about it, or knowing exact numbers of any object or having a photographic memory.
Only 3 things exist to complete person: Mind, Body, and Soul/Spirit
Since Soul/Spirit goes either thru reincarnation or permanent destruction, they never re-enter the same body...so a Soul or Spirit could never hold a physical bloodline. a "Mind-Spirit" union could be made so you remember your past life (and past ninja knowledge) and if done enough times it could be become a bloodline to your children and so on down the line.
..hehe, this style is better than Orochimaru's immortality...only downside is your mom could be one of your past lovers or you end up in the family of your mortal enemy...and lying about memories could happen too!
Physical abnormalities that give you an edge can be both rewarding and discourging at the same times. How do you think the first Uchiha with the Sharingan felt... never missing even the slightest detail or perhaps for spying on a document 10-30 yards away?...or how about the first Hyuuga with Byakugan? do you think he used it to peep on the ladies?
also, some abilities made searching for a mate easier
"I have an ability that if our children also share, it makes you a founding mother of a clan and that will give you a huge status in the Village!"
what about Sakon and Kimimaro, able to join a persons body and kill them or able to grow bones you can shape and use to your own desire?
and finally the powers of Mind or rather
"Some anomoly of your brain that works faster/better, thus giving you an edge."
...Sadly, no known "Bloodlines" are displayed as being of "the mind" but you could assume that "the ability to be smart" could be passed down, but weather it is empowered or not is up to the person.
Both Shikamaru and Kakashi fall into here, though not a bloodline, being abnormally smart or resourcful has made Shikamaru a leader and Kakashi into a legend!

Oh wow, wtf, I lost a few brain cells in this thread.
Great Sig by the way.
It seems it's become a fashion to think of bloodline limits as coicidental, hasn't it?
My guess is probably through a mutation that is advantageous in nature. Or maybe several small mutations over time that combine to form a bloodline limit. The adantegous part is important because, especially during the times of the great nija wars, it would be important to survival. Kind of case of Charles Darwins Evolution by Natural Selection with Ninjas *LOL*How does the Uchiha Clan's Sharingan fit in to this? Or Kimimaro's Shikotsumyaku? How about the Byakugan? In other words fusing elements is only ONE KIND of Kekkei Genkai a.k.a. Bloodline Limit.Bloodline limited are discussed through the simlpicity of combining two elements. Most Ninjas who try to fuse 2 Elements have difficulty, while Bloodline Users do so in ease, such as Ice that Haku used.
If my memories of biology lectures was right (95% of which I slept through), I think it required many generations of inbreeding for the gene to become permanent.
Today, I got lost on the road of life.
Well, that does explain why, and I laugh at this loudly and, I'll say it, quite often, that every Ninja family we've seen so far included a mother and father, and more depending, which specific-family traits that they couldn't have unless they were marrying their own kin.
...No, a specific allele can't "disappear" unless the people that carries it all die. So I have no idea what you mean by permanent. If you mean that that specific phenotype is always expressed then that would still require continued inbreeding, what youíre saying doesnít make any sense (though you arenít really alone there, unfortunately).
