One of the greatest tragedies of the work created by Masashi Kishimoto is the Itachi's extermination of the Uchiha clan. But why did Sasuke's brother commit this crazy act? Let's analyze one of the most popular characters from Naruto Shippuden.

In the course of his work, Kishimoto slowly revealed the details of the Massacre of the Uchiha clan. Let's retrace the story of Itachi, that tragic night, and the reason why a gesture of this magnitude was committed in Konoha.

Before we can understand the Uchiha extermination, we must first analyze Itachi, the eldest son of the clan leader and the most powerful ninja in his family. He experienced several atrocities from an early age, particularly those committed during the Third Ninja War. These horrors led Itachi to become a pacifist that a ninja was capable of End all conflicts. However, the boy slaughtered the entire clan and only saved little Sasuke.

The Uchiha clan has been at the center of some shady plans since Konoha's inception. The Madara Uchiha uprising aroused fear and suspicion among the people of the paper, who started it to alienate and fear the members of that clan. All of this was compounded by the attack of the nine-tailed fox.

The departure from the important roles led to the Uchiha hostility towards their own village. This resulted in Sasuke's father and Itachi, clan leaders of the Uchiha, taking over leadership a coup against the leaders of Konoha. But that possibility was stopped in the bud by Danzo, who convinced Itachi, who joined the Anbu team, to kill his family in order to keep the peace on the leaf.

The massacre of his clan shaped Sasuke's whole life, the only survivor by Itachi's own will. His vengeance journey led him to become one of the strongest shinobi in the world and fight with his brother. But at the moment of Itachi's death, the boy discovered the truth about Uchiha and Konoha. Thanks to this event, Sasuke was able to fulfill Itachi's dream after numerous vicissitudes: to end every conflict. Often underrated, Master Gai is actually one of the strongest characters in Naruto: Shippuden. We admire all of Konan's beauty and prowess in this Naruto: Shippuden cosplay.
