Naruto is one of the most beloved anime and manga series of all time, and it is not for less, since it presents us with amazing fights within the ninja world and the ninja path of its protagonist to become Hokage. Some of the characters that appear have won the hearts of fans despite presenting them to us with an antagonistic meaning, so today we will delve into the most present action of Itachi Uchiha.
Something that seems quite curious to us is that, before starting with the reasons that led to the massacre of the Uchiha, let’s see who Itachi was. This was the firstborn of the leader of the Uchiha clan, he was born as a powerful ninja. He later became a powerful international criminal after murdering his entire clan.
The key to his action is reflected in the fact that he only spared his younger brother, Sasuke. He then joined the international criminal organization, called Akatsuki, whose activity brought him into contact with Konoha and his Ninja. His younger sister wanted revenge on his brother for killing the entire clan. Itachi’s intentions were revealed to be more complicated at the end of the series.
Why did Itachi end the Uchiha clan?
There have been many discussions about Itachi’s action, but let’s see the real cause of his action. You must have seen the founding days of the Hidden Leaf Village when much was spectacular about the Uchiha Clan. The nine-tailed fox attacked, which increased the fear among the villagers.
Danzo stole Shisui’s eye, which had the ability to fabricate peace, and because of this, Itachi didn’t know who he should trust. After that, Itachi was given a choice between open warfare and the death of his brother. We can see these facts in episode 455 of the manga series, we saw Itachi choosing to kill all the members of the clan by order of Danzo, but with the life of his brother protected from him.
It is mentioned that Itachi only killed a few Uchiha, including his own parents, the vast majority of the Uchiha were killed by Tobi. The attack was also carried out with the help of Obito, who at the time was posing as Madara Uchiha.
Now that you know the reason for the same, do you think that you can be considered the only one responsible for it? Personally, we believe that a large part of this comes from Danzo’s ambitions to obtain more power, which was reflected in his actions. last moments, but also the decisions of the elders to exclude the Uchiha from the other villagers, that’s where all the discontent originated.
