Sasuke Uchiha is the rival and former teammate of Naruto. Eventually, with intent of gaining power, he goes out and seeks Orochimaru's help to defeat his brother.He finds that itachi was order by Konoha elders to kill his clan ,now he wants destroy it and later joins akatsuki
Sasuke Uchiha's early childhood, as told over the course of Naruto manga volume twenty-five, was spent living in the shadow of his older brother, Itachi Uchiha, a natural prodigy of the Uchiha clan. In an effort to win some recognition for himself, Sasuke trained diligently to win some of his parents' attention, though he was never able to surpass the milestones set in place by his brother, who would be the only one to acknowledge Sasuke's accomplishments. In time, Itachi began to distance himself from the clan and fell out of his family's confidence, which consequently began to look to Sasuke as the new future for the clan.
Soon after Sasuke started to be accepted into his family, he returned home one day to find the streets littered with the corpses of the Uchiha clan. Upon rushing home, Sasuke found Itachi standing over his parents's corpses. As Sasuke tried to flee, Itachi went on to explain that he had never loved his little brother.
Claiming that Sasuke was not worth killing, Itachi encouraged him to get stronger by living a life of hate and anger towards him, with his sole purpose being to avenge the clan. Itachi left, and in the absence of a loving family Sasuke agreed to do as instructed, dedicating his life to killing Itachi. Years later, in Part II of the series, Sasuke is shown to have some doubts about the events of that night. It is not until after Itachi's death that he learns the truth surrounding the massacre of the Uchiha: that it was all done on command by the village.
Sasuke Uchiha is a lead character of the Naruto series that was created by Masashi Kishimoto. It first began serialization Weekly Shonen Jump in November 1999. He was first introduced in the very first story arc. Sasuke was originally not even a planned character for the Naruto series as he was developing the story. After discussion the series future with the editors, Kishimoto was told that the lead protagonist, Naruto Uzumaki, would need a rival to challenge hm. This is what spurred the creation of Sasuke. Kishimoto went on to do intensive research of other manga series about what makes an effective rival. The rival of a hyper-active and dim protagonist should be the polar opposite, so he was sure to make Sasuke a prodigy and never show much emotion. As he put it, a "cool genius".
" Am I really going to be able to draw such a fussy, complicated character over and over, panel after panel, and issue after issue, week after week? "
Masashi Kishimoto - "Naruto" Volume 3 Early Character Designs - Sasuke
Kishimoto struggled with Sasuke's design more so that any other character that he had previously worked on for the series. In some early drafts Sasuke appeared to be too matured for a character the same age as Naruto. First after designing the face, he started work on the clothing design. He would add a large number of necklaces and adornments around his legs and arms, but the complexity of these designs would of been far too complex to draw on a weekly basis. He once again looked to Naruto and went in an opposite direction to be minimalist to Naruto's outlandish clothes. Sasuke's first shirt design bares a striking resemblance to a character from the first series Kishimoto ever submitted to Weekly Shonen Jump. The series was titled Karakuri (からくり), but it was canceled since fan polls were rock bottom. Kishimoto struggled throughout the early series to draw Sasuke and retain the youthful appearance. Art mistakes were frequent and he would often look older then intended. He blamed himself for his inexperience in drawing character that were mature beyond their actual age. Sasuke's hair initially started as short but grew as the series progressed. He was given a more complicated outfit during the Chunin Exams, that had a variety of straps on the arms and elbows; but this was again too complicated for the weekly schedule. After the arc, he was returned to his initial design. Despite all the trials in drawing Sasuke, Kishimoto has said that he is his favorite to draw.
He first appeared in Naruto Volume 1, CH. 3 "Enter Sasuke!", and his first anime appearance was in Naruto - Episode 1 "He Appears! Naruto Uzumaki". Though Sasuke's first official appearance in the Naruto manga was in Chapter 3, he can be seen standing in line behind Naruto in Chapter 1 "Uzumaki Naruto" on page 13, and he also appears in the splash page for Chapter 1 riding a hawk. His character in the Japanese series is voiced by Noriaki Sugiyama, and the U.S. dub produced by VIZ Media is done by Yuri Lowenthal. Sasuke has a natural gift in ninjutsu that made him the star of his class.
Sasuke was named after the father of the Third Hokage, Sasuke Sarutobi. Sasuke's family name of Uchiha (うちは) is another way of pronouncing Uchiwa (団扇, "paper fan"). In fact, the Uchiha Clan's symbol is that of a paper fan. These fans are designed for fanning a fire to help it burn. The only people Sasuke uses Japanese honorifics when talking to is his parents and fellow Uchia Clan members. In Japanese culture, this would be seen as incredible rude. In the splash page for Chapter 1 "Uzumaki Naruto", Sasuke is seen riding a hawk, a type of animal his character would eventually learn to summon.
Sasuke has had various places in the fan polls for the Naruto cast, but he has kept a steady place within the top ten on each one. He is one of four characters to to this. This in spite of frequent absences from the story. In the first poll, Sasuke ranked 3rd, in the second and third he placed 4th, in the fourth he placed 3rd again, and would held the 1st place for both the fifth and sixth poll. By the Third Naruto Databook, all of the votes were tallied for a grand total of 33,632 votes, making him the third most popular character of the manga. In a more recent poll, Sasuke took 2nd place, and these numbers have not yet been added to his total votes.
Sasuke had the highest grades in the Ninja Academy for Ninjutsu, Taijutsu and Genjutsu, but his average was lowered due to his poor scores in cooperation and the second-lowest grade in assertiveness. He was the second highest in grades, behind Ino Yamanaka.
" My name is Sasuke Uchiha. There are plenty of things I hate, but I don't see that is matters, considering there is almost nothing I do like. It seems pointless to talk about "dreams"... That's just a word... But what I do have is determination. I plan to restore my clan, and there is someone I have sworn...to kill. "
Sasuke Uchiha - "Naruto" Volume 1. Ch. 4
As per Kishimoto's design, Sasuke is a polar opposite to Naruto in almost every fashion. He's coo headed to a point of being nearly emotionless and holds a sense of superiority about himself. Much of his talent comes from heavy training he did while young but still excelled quickly. Growing up, he felt he was under the shadow of his even more talented older brother. After the slaughter of the Uchiha Clan, he blamed himself for being so weak and further threw himself into training since he was now dedicated to revenge. Seeing others such as Sakura or Naruto succeed past him only exposed a feeling of inferiority. It was in a battle against Haku and Zabuza Momochi that Sasuke's Sharingan Eyes first appeared. He even sacrificed himself to save Naruto when it appeared that he was about to die. During the Chunin Exams is when he first met Orochimaru, who was after him to be his new vessel; and placed the Juinjutsu Cursed Seal of Heaven on him. Sasuke survived the curse mark and gained more power from it, but it only fed the darkness inside of him. He was later trained by Kakashi Hatake to use his signature technique, the Chidori. It was during the last stage of the Chunin Exam that the Sand Village and Sound Village invaded the Leaf Village. Sasuke battled Gaara and was easily defeated. He was humiliated to watch as Naruto was the one to show greater skill and defeat Gaara.
This bitterness only grew for Naruto's advancing skill and made him feel he wasn't moving forward fast enough. He challenged Naruto to an all out fight on top of the hospital, and he nearly tried to kill Naruto with the Chidori. This fight was stopped at the last moment by Kakashi. Sasuke was later approached to join Orochimaru by his elite Sound Four, and he accepted. He was put through a special jutsu that would complete his Cursed Seal mark and abandoned the village. Naruto and other Leaf Ninja chased after him and he had a full all out fight with Naruto. This was the first fight he unleashed the Second-Stage Juinjutsu form and the three-tomoe Sharingan awoke in him. Sasuke barely won this fight but didn't chose not to kill Naruto. He then went to Orochimaru for training to kill Itachi for two years. Several characters throughout the story have often mentioned that they find the idea of teaching a genius, such as Sasuke, as boring next to teaching someone more unpredictable, such as Naruto.
Affiliation: Akatsuki / Hidden Leaf Village (former)

Date Of Birth: July 23rd Age: 16
Zodiac Sign: Leo
Blood Type: AB
After a two year time skip in the manga series, Sasuke is now at the age of 15 or 16 years old. He had spent the entire time being trained by Orochimaru in many of his snake based and other forbidden jutsu. He even mastered the second-stage juinjutsu. His clothes were also modeled after Orochimaru's Sound Ninja and he has a chakra sword of called Kusanagi. Though, this model is a katana style and is a different style than Orochimaru's Kusanagi. After killing Orochimaru, he formed his own team of other Sound Ninja he called Team Snake. He would eventually kill Itachi and was approached by Madara Uchiha. Madara would tell him the whole truth about the story of the Uchiha Massacre and that is was the plot of Danzo Shimura. Sasuke then joined the Akatsuki and rename his squad to Team Hawk. Both his clothes under Orochimaru and Akatsuki bore the Uchiha Clan's symbol on the back. They tried to capture the Jinchuuriki, of the Eight-Tailed Ox, Killer Bee; but failed. These actions lost him the protection of the Fifth Hokage, Tsunade; and he was classified a Rouge Ninja. Sasuke tried to rebel against Madara but this was another failure. His team was then tasked with attacking the Kage Summit in the Land of Iron, and Danzo would be attending. It was his actions here that would instigate the Fourth Great Shinobi War.
Not long after, Sasuke battled Danzo and reached a new level of darkness. Though Danzo held his Team Hawk member, Karin; who was deeply in love with him. He pierced through her to kill Danzo and left her to die, as well. Sakura appears to try and kill Sasuke, and he would of killed her, as well. If Kakashi hadn't appeared at the last moment to save her. It was then that he declared that he would eventually return the Hidden Leaf Village with the intent to kill everyone and wipe the village off the map. To gain more power, Sasuke agreed to have his Sharingan Eyes replaced with his brother Itashi's eyes.
Sasuke's first appearance in the series is a short section of Part I, where he quickly and easily passes the Ninja Academy graduation test, whereas Naruto could not even create and sustain a working clone for a few seconds. Naruto, after seeing that Sakura Haruno desired Sasuke's affection, decided that the two would from here on out be rivals. Naruto did everything he could to be better than Sasuke, but in the end, regardless of how hard he fought against him, he was eventually placed into the same three man unit as him and Sakura, with Kakashi Hatake, the copy ninja, as their teacher. As much as neither of them liked it, they would eventually have to come to terms with one another and help eachother fight and complete missions together.
Naruto, to prove his straightforward conviction, drove a kunai into his hand at one point during their first real mission, to guard the bridge builder from the land of waves. This mission was supposedly simply a Rank C given to them specifically by the Third Hokage, but it ended up being much more than a simple mission once Zabuza, "The Demon" appeared and attempted to kill them and take the bridge builder. The fight escalated with Kakashi facing off against him in an open area with a large lake, surrounded by misty fog, Zabuza's specialty. Sasuke and team were commanded to guard the bridge builder with their lives while Kakashi fought him and lured him away from them, eventually combatting his opponent in the middle of a lake.
It wasn't too long before the Demon sent one of his water clones to do away with the trio while they attempted to hold their own. Naruto attempted to barrage the assassin's doppelganger with multiple shadow clones of his own, with intent of crushing him, but the Demon's sword skill was too great and he faltered, all of his clones being blown back. Eventually, after leading it out far away enough, Sakura noted that the clone would stop working so well if they were able to get it far away enough from the person controlling it. She was right, and it melded down into water once it had been such a distance. Suddenly, though, from through the midst, Sasuke and Naruto could see that Kakashi had been trapped by one of Zabuza's many water based jutsu, a prison in spherical shape keeping Kakashi pinned down, with Zabuza holding his hand in it. Naruto and Sasuke quickly developed a plan to take out his technique. Sasuke, lifting out a giant shuriken from his bag, held it up, labeling it as a "Demon Wind Shuriken" technique.
He threw his giant shuriken straight towards Zabuza as hard as he could. Zabuza caught the first thrown projectile, only to realize that in fact there was a second one underneath the shadow of the first. The water demon was forced to unleash his water prism jutsu on Kakashi, and was defeated by the second shuriken, which was actually Naruto in disguise.
In order for exams to fight Rock Lee challenges him, through whom unexpectedly defeated. During the Chunin Exam copies the work of the person sitting in front of him writing a test. In the Forest of Death defeats a Genin from Amegakure . When you are attacked by Orochimaru , seeing a huge advantage the enemy wants to be putting a scroll but Uzumaki tackles, which ends in knockout young Genin. Realizing the situation, Sasuke is the fighting and after the presentation of their skills will be "marked" by the snake Sannin gaining Cursed Seal. It deprives him of consciousness and wakes up only when the three genins of Otogakure Sakura fights. By activating the seal is gaining new layers of chakra and easily disposes of Zak Abumi . In qualifying for the three parts of the examinations is to fight Orochimaru Yoroim being a spy, who can suck chakra opponent. Thanks to Lee's taijutsu skopiowanemu he manages to knock outthe enemy to stop the spread of Kakashi seals Sasuke's mark on the neck the negative effects of the Cursed Seal. Goes to the hospital under the supervision of the ANBU. There Kakashi thwarts a plan to kidnap him by Kabuto and takes his training before the finals, which are late. Opponent is Desert Gaara Sasuke but after showing the new skills -Chidori and closing the ball in the sand Gaara fight is interrupted because it starts with the attack on Konoha and Sunagakure allies Otogakure.
Gaara flee along with his siblings and Jōnin - Genma three test examiner who recommended that Sasuke went after them in pursuit, and so it happens.When he catches up with sand genins is to fight with Gaara, who begins his transformation into Shukaku. After a further 2 Chidori Sasuke loses its chakra and is unable to continue fighting. He comes to the aid of Naruto, which ultimately defeats the monster sand.
Shortly after the funeral Sandaime, invades Konoha to Itachi with Kisame.When he learns about Sasuke starts to chase after them and finds them when they try to capture Naruto. Raised in anger and revenge on Charges for using the elder brother of his Chidori, but the difference in level is still too great to be discharged any struggle between them. Itachi crushes his wrist and asks a series of strokes, after which he throws on his genjutsu - Tsukuyomi. At the end he says to him that he is not able to do anything to him because he lacks the heart of hatred. Alarmed Jiraya enters the place, so two members of Akatsuki is forced to flee from the super-frog technique Sannin. Sasuke unconscious to a hospital in the village takes Gai, where it is cured by a newly brought to the village by Naruto and Ero-Sennin Tsunade.
Filled with rage over his level, which is not able to really bring it to the desired revenge, he challenges Naruto to a duel. Uzumaki agrees and comes to fighting between the boys on the roof of the building. At a time when almost comes to a collision of two techniques Chidori and Rasengan Kakashi enters the scene, which separates the warring friends. He recalls the order of Sasuke temperując his pride showing him the consequences of the attack Naruto, which proved to be far more destructive than the Chidori member of the clan. He explains that to follow blindly for revenge does not lead him to no good. Sasuke is annoyed that corresponds to him: - "Or maybe I'll do you a favor, and all your loved ones will kill? Was only then that tells you how much you're wrong!" on what the teacher says: - "There is no case kill them, only because you do not give advice .. because I do not have anyone like that, we all ... were killed ...".
Sasuke, Naruto seeing progress, while living under the pressure of ambition and lust for revenge, he felt that he begins to stand still. Unable to accept this fact, Sasuke provoke confrontations, wanting to assert its supremacy over Naruto. There were two fights, in which they face. The first has not been completed because Kakashi intervened in time. The second duel took place during a rescue mission. Sasuke decided to go to Orochimaru after the new power. For this purpose, survived the "death" and has expanded its seal.Thanks to this boy might undergo a transformation, thanks to which his Chakra is altered forever. For the clash took place in the Valley of the End. In this struggle we can say that the winner is Sasuke. This time, this fight nobody could stop. Both, Naruto and Sasuke used a full arsenal of the resources at their disposal. Sasuke was able to activate higher level ninja (with three łezkami) and passed to the second level, "Cursed Seal" to cope with Uzumakiemu, which received the full support under the demon fox away. In this struggle they both die, and above all, he could die Naruto, Sasuke wanted to kill you to get an even higher level of Sharingan - Kaleidoscope - and a prerequisite for this was to "kill closest friend." However, the bond between the boys was stronger even than the young Uchiha revenge.
Sasuke has not, therefore, the taking of life Uzumakiemu, deciding to seek his own, less treacherous roads to gain Kaleidoscope. Both boys shared a true friendship, and this even before we have a chance to see their exploits on the team seven. We see it in the memories of Sasuke, when it met on the lake in the village. Even then, it was evident that these two lines is more than eye contact. Even the moment when Sasuke first activated the Sharingan was caused by emotions, which had for Naruto. It has not been freed to defend himself, only in defense of fox boy.The young Uchiha generally not realized how close he is Naruto. He understood that only when the latter told him that treats him like a brother. And it is precisely in this respect Sasuke lost his battle with Naruto, instead of victory, though it seemed at first glance. It was at this point, these relationships have played an important role. The basis for the fight Shinobich is the assumption that the enemy must be killed. Sasuke tried to kill Naruto in the beginning, but only wanted to regain Uzumaki friend. Both lost the fight because no one was able to achieve the goal. For a bond with Naruto Sasuke proved stronger than hatred for Itachi, but the desire for revenge and power prevailed over the need to be with friends and native village. After the fight with Naruto, Sasuke went to Orochimaru's hideout in the direction. where he will be training, so that will gain additional strength. Is aware of the real Orochimaru's plans, which has for him, but still the main and only purpose of his life is revenge.
During this time he has trained under Orochimaru, and his lust for strength is still strong. During his first encounter with Sakura and Naruto he claims that he is willing to give up his body to Orochimaru just to kill Itachi. This would be proven wrong when Sasuke barged into Orochimaru's room and pinned him to the wall.
After three years of training with Orochimaru Sasuke gained strength through which he could at last to face with his brother. The thought of victory and killed his only brother was motivated by what Uzumakiego surpassed in strength. Therefore, do not worry about the plans he had for him a snake Sannin. In addition to mastering the Sharingan third level of perfection he had also developed a technique Kakashi - Chidori nagashi. In addition, is able to control Chakra so that it is able to form with her sword. As a favorite disciple of Orochimaru possesses the secrets of Kuchiyose no Jutsu, and, like his teacher, he also managed to summon snakes. In addition to new techniques, Sasuke has included a Sasuke Transformation sword, which he used to use Orochimaru - Kusanagi. Although he trained at the young Uchiha wężowca, it is not divested himself of all humanity from itself. Every time when he had to fight the opponents do not deprive them of life. For him the only person that receives life is his older brother.
Sasuke Uchiha has become a target for the special branches Konoha ANBU.One of its members was Sai, who joined the team Naruto and Sakura. Initially, he wanted to kill him even though he was not strong enough, but after listening to what the mutual relations of the said Uzumaki, Naruto decided to support in spite of orders, but this ended in failure. When I met with Sasuke Naruto, showed no emotion. He treated it like a normal shinobi, and even was ready to kill him. New skills have allowed to see Kyūbiego Sasuke when he slowly began to awaken in Uzumakim. Then the demon fox said that Sasuke's eyes speaks the same hatred as in other Uchihy - Madara. Do not even hesitate to use against him of one of the secret techniques, however, intervened at the last minute Orochimaru. Contrary to appearances, Sasuke had no plans to give his body as a container for the soul of Orochimaru. When approaching the moment when his "teacher" was getting ready to change your body, it is used. Wężowiec was very weak and waited for the moments when he could finally take advantage of Sasuke.But it warned its plan and decided to act alone. Instead of the ninja kill him absorbed him, and to use his Dōjutsu .Thanks Hose took his skills, including the regeneration of the body, and other powerful techniques Sannin.
He then declares to Orochimaru that he is weak and there was nothing more he could teach him, and was prepared to strike the death blow when Orochimaru turned into his true form, a white snake made up of hundreds of smaller white snakes like itself, somewhat of a beast like Hydra. The two fight, with all the snakes on Orochimaru's "body" attacking simultaneously. Sasuke defended himself against the attacks and taunted Orochimaru as he activated his level two Curse Seal. He said "snakes dream of soaring through the sky, but are forever doomed to crawl on their bellies. But you'll get your chance to fly, snake... in the talons of a hawk." Sasuke then slices Orochimaru in three halves, but starts to feel sick. Orochimaru's severed head taunts Sasuke, saying that his snakes have poisoned the air, as he lunges at him trying to take Sasuke's body by bringing them both to something of a dimension "within himself," as Orochimaru put it.
Sasuke began to be consumed by the strange organic-like material within that world, but Sasuke put Orochimaru in a genjutsu and the strange material that was consuming Sasuke instead began to consume Orochimaru... absorbing Orochimaru with his own technique. When Kabuto asked him which one he was, Sasuke put Kabuto in a genjutsu showing him what happened, then said simply "I've taken over." Sasuke then forms a team called Hebi, which means Serpent or Snake, made up of four people including himself. The three other members consisted of other subordinates of Orochimaru from his other hideouts. They were: Suigetsu, Karin, and Juugo. This team was made to kill Itachi. With Hebi, Sasuke traveled to confront Itachi but was intercepted by the Akatsuki member Deidara. Deidara challenged Sasuke and was ultimately defeated by his own clay bomb, "his greatest masterpiece" as he called it. However, the large summon snake Manda was killed in the battle and Sasuke was left wounded. Recently Sasuke has caught up with Itachi.
When he found him Itachi told Sasuke to meet him in the old Uchiha hideout. When Sasuke and his team, Hebi (Snake), made it to the hideout they were confronted by Itachi's Akatsuki partner Kisame. Kisame told Sasuke to go on alone while the other three stay behind. Karin pleaded for Sasuke not to go alone but Sasuke thought this was perfect and went on ahead. Meanwhile Suigetsu and Kisame have decided to battle to pass the time, seeing is how they're both from the Village hidden in the Mist. When Sasuke finally confronted Itachi for their final battle he found Itachi sitting on a throne like chair. Itachi asked Sasuke "What do you see?", in which Sasuke un-fearfully answered "I see you...dead.". The battle began with Itachi finally replying "Let's see how good your eyesight is.". Sasuke used his Chidori Current and pinned Itachi down.
Sasuke told Itachi he had one question left to ask before he kills him. But it was revealed the Itachi was using his signature genjutsu as the Itachi pinned down faded away as a flock of Raven's. Sasuke found the real Itachi still sitting atop the Uchiha throne. Itachi was surprised when Sasuke was actually using a genjutsu aswell as Sasuke's body faded away as a herd of snakes. The real Sasuke was hiding behind the throne.
He impaled Itachi from behind with his sword. Sasuke then told Itachi once more "Before I kill you, I have one last question.". Sasuke asked Itachi who the third Uchiha survivor was, and Itachi answered "Uchiha Madara". Sasuke wondered how Madara could still be alive if he was a founding father of the Leaf Village. Itachi told him that Madara is very much alive. And that Madara helped Itachi kill the Uchiha clan. Sasuke then revealed that Itachi was using genjutsu and now they may begin they're real fight. But before they did, Itachi revealed that after activating the Mangekyou Sharingan, your eyes slowly begin to go blind, the very price you have to pay for getting the power of the Nine-Tailed Fox. Itachi told Sasuke that Madara Uchiha is the only one in history to ever find out the Sharingan's final secret, and with it he tamed the nine-tailed fox, and used like a pet.
However this was revealed to be genjutsu. Then Itachi used the Tsukoyomi to tell Sasuke his sinister plan to rip out Sasuke's eyes. Sasuke broke the genjutsu of Tsukoyomi and proceeded to attack and successfully overwhelm Itachi's Grand Fireball justsu, but soon after Itachi uses his Amaterasu flame to attack Sasuke.
Sasuke was able to dodge Amaterasu with a technique of Orochimaru's which uses alot of his chakra. Both being near the end of chakra Sasuke prepares for his final jutsu, "Kirin."
By creating a hot up-draft, Sasuke was able to cause storm clouds to form. Using his chakra, he guided a lightning bolt at Itachi. He thought he defeated Itachi, however Itachi used his last Mangekyou Sharingan technique, Susanoo, a large humanoid to protect himself. Orochimaru starts to whisper to Sasuke, saying that he can help him defeat Itachi. White snakes then appear from Sasuke's body and Orochimaru appears in the form of a gigantic eight-headed snake and attacks Itachi, however Susanoo cuts off each head that attacks him. Orochimaru emerges from the mouth of the last head and is stabbed by Susanoo's sword, which has the power to seal whatever it strikes in a dream-like world. Susanoo starts to absorb Orochimaru and the white snakes from Sasuke's body into a gourd attached to the sword, but one of the snakes escape.
Itachi begins towards Sasuke, but clenches his chest.Sasuke attempts to defend himself with exploding kunais, however they are all deflected by Susanoo's shield. Sasuke gets backed into a corner as Itachi reaches for Sasuke's eyes, but at the last moment changes his finger's path and pokes Sasuke's forehead as he falls to the ground and Susanoo disappears, in a last act of remembrance.
Sasuke then awakens in a darkened bedroom. Tobi first speaks and informs Sasuke that he won, but shouldn't be so careless about his life. He then stepped out of the shadows and tells him that that they met before, but he isn't his enemy. Tobi then starts to take off his mask, stating that he's also a surviving Uchiha. At this point, Sasuke's eye turns into the Itachi's Mangekyou Sharingan and Amaterasu starts to engulf Tobi, he falls back into the shadows screaming. Sasuke is baffled as to what happened, and Tobi steps out of the shadows saying that Itachi gave him his Mangekyou Sharingan, possibly as a last ditch effort to kill him or to keep him away from Sasuke. Tobi makes a joke saying that it could be called a fail-safe, but Itachi only got as far as "fail." He then tells Sasuke that he was the one that helped Itachi destroy the Uchiha clan and called himself Madara, and said that he's going to tell Sasuke about Itachi.
The first few things he said confused Sasuke a lot, as he didn't understand the relevance of what had happened back then to what was happening now. Tobi told him that in order for him to explain the past of Uchiha Itachi, he would have to first explain what had happened a long time ago, back before Konoha had even technically started, back when there were two warring clans, The Uchiha and the Senju clan, who had been warring with eachother ever since anyone could remember. When people hired the Uchiha as bodyguards, their enemy would hire the Senju.
The two clans were the strongest in the world, and always fought whenever they were given the chance. Tobi continued to tell him of how he had met his greatest rival, and also the man he had looked up to the most, on these battlefields. This man was known as Hashirama Senju, the man who would later become the first Hokage of the Leaf Village. Madara continued to tell Sasuke that he had been on even terms with the man when it came to fighting, they were almost on equal terms with eachother, but Tobi had lost more than he'd won, and eventually this caused for him to have to give up his position in the clan, as in desperation he asked his little brother for his eyes, as he was going blind. What most people did not know if this story was that in fact, Madara had not taken his brothers eyes away, he had in fact just accepted the offer because he knew that his little brother knew what was best for the clan. But this would eventually cause some controversy among the other members, and he would soon lose rank...
Standing on a bank of a ocean shore Sasuke reflected on what Tobi told him, then in a final decision he informed Tobi, Juugo, Karin, and Suigetsu. That team Hebi (snake) will now move under the name Taka (hawk) also reviling his new Mangekyou Sharingan, and long with the new name came a new goal, to crush Konoha.
But, before he would crush Konoha, Tobi said that he would have to join him with the remainder of the Akatsuki, and so, he did. There current primary goal is to capture the eight tailed biju, who has identified himself as " Killer bee", and acts some what like a stereotypical African-American rapper.
Sasuke and his team find Killer Bee in the mountains of the Cloud village. Suigetsu and Juugo begin the assault, but are easily defeated. Sasuke confidently steps in but fares no better and is heavily wounded, but saved by the combined efforts of his teammates. Karin heals Sasuke and the team begin their attack again, this time as a team, and are still not doing so well. Killer Bee then uses his Bijuu chakra and attacks Sasuke, whom manages to avoid a tackle and Killer Bee heads towards the others. They escape and Killer Bee goes back for Sasuke, that's when Sasuke manages to hit Killer Bee with Tsukiyomi but he breaks it as the eight-tailed beast was able to disrupt his chakra and dispel the genjutsu.He tackles Sasuke after sasuke lowered his guard, gravely injuring him again. Juugo tries to patch up Sasuke while Killer Bee assumes his Bijuu's form and Suigetsu tries to hold him off for the others to escape with a giant wave, but Killer Bee takes Suigetsu down and Sasuke then prepared to use Amaterasu. Killer Bee began flailing about while on fire, in the process he caught Karin on fire too before he passed out. Sasuke then used his MS again to extinguish the flames on both Killer Bee and Karin, but using his MS too much had caused Sasuke incredible pain. He and Juugo then carried they Killer Bee and their teammates back to their base.
Uknown to Sasuke and his team, they have actually failed to capture the 8-Tails and are returning with a Clone. Carrying the clone without notice as well as their wounded teammates, Sasuke and Jugo traveled to another Akatsuki hideout, where he handed over the clone to Madara. Madara asked him where he intended to go next. Sasuke replied that after healing his injuries, he would go to Konoha. At this, Madara remembered a conversation he had with Sasuke before the latter left to capture the Eight-Tails. Madara was skeptical about Sasuke's stated intention to crush Konoha (which would go against Itachi's wishes) and questioned his motives. At this, Sasuke said that although he wanted to respect Itachi's sacrifice, his feelings of anger and sorrow at Itachi's fate were much greater. He further said that he considered Itachi's life to have been more important than Konoha in the same way Itachi felt about him, and because of that he could never forgive the three Konoha elders for their actions. He then revealed that he had lied when he said he only wanted to kill the three elders and that he instead wanted to destroy the entire village, whom he considered accomplices for going along with the Senju's discrimination of the Uchiha, and for enjoying a temporary "peace" at the cost of Itachi's life and the massacre of the Uchiha clan. Thus, he made it clear that he had no intention of following in Itachi's footsteps, to which Madara remained silent. Madara thought to himself, "In all those who feel love, there lies the capacity for hate".
As his team rested, Suigetsu asked Sasuke if they would really get the power of the Eight-Tails, but Sasuke surmised that he doesn't need it. He then thought to himself that he already has the power to destroy Konoha (with his Mangekyo Sharingan) and reached for a glass of water. Much to his surprise, Sasuke accidentally knocked over the glass. In horror, he realized that his eyesight has gotten hazy. Karin asked him if he is all right, to which Sasuke lies, telling her that nothing was wrong.
Suddenly, Karin sensed an enemy outside their base and Sasuke and Jugo went to intercept him. This enemy turned out to be a spy sent by the Raikage to keep tabs on Hawk's movements. Later, other Cloud ninjas sent by the Raikage arrive, only to find that Team Hawk were gone and the spy (apparently) dead.
Afterwards, it was revealed that Sasuke actually failed in capturing the Eight-Tails, as Killer Bee fooled him into taking a tail of the Eight-Tails disguised as his body, instead of the beast itself.
Madara later intercepted Team Hawk whom were off to make their offensive against Konoha. Team Hawk said they were parting with Akatsuki, but Madara told Sasuke that he warned Sasuke that he'd kill him if he betrayed Akatsuki, adding on that the Eight-Tails was a fake. Madara told them that he'll let their failure to capture the Eight-Tails slide and he wants them to do something else before they can leave Akatsuki. Sasuke tried to attack Madara, but failed. Madara told him that there was no point in destroying Konoha since Pein already did it, and told them that the 5 Kages were going to have a meeting... one of them being Danzo, who wanted the Uchiha wiped out. He then had Zetsu lead Team Hawk to the Kage meeting; Zetsu split in two and the light half lead them while the dark half remained with Madara.
L. Zetsu took them to the Land of Iron, a snow-covered country that had Samurai rather than Ninja. Team Hawk scouted the area and managed to sneak into the Kage meeting where L. Zetsu informed them which one was Danzo. After Team Hawk snuck out, they decided upon a course of action, they'd attack Danzo while he's on his way back to the Leaf village. This however doesn't go according to plan as Madara tells L. Zetsu to tell the Kages that Sasuke's there. L. Zetsu pops up in the middle of the Kage meeting, telling them that Sasuke's hiding somewhere and wants them to go find him. Raikage rushes L.
Zetsu and threatens to kill him if he doesn't tell them where Sasuke is. Later Zetsu offers to give him a hint but Raikage apparently kills him out of frustration and runs off with his bodyguards Shii and Darui to look for Sasuke. Raikage does find Sasuke, Sasuke rushes head-on but Darui defends with Water Encampment Wall to force Sasuke back, then uses an electrical attack called Wave of Inspiration to attack, but Sasuke's able to escape. Shii then uses a genjutsu on Sasuke, stunning him while Darui and Raiakge go in to kill Sasuke, but Juugo and Suigetsu save Sasuke... unfortunately Suigetsu's sword is broke in two from Raikage's punch. Juugo uses his full cursed form and Raikage slams him against a wall with a thunderous punch, but Juugo endures it with a shield and fires a large energy blast at Raikage, but he dodges and slam Juugo against another wall which takes him out of the fight. Sasuke tries to attack Raikage from behind, but Raikage knocks Sasuke's sword from his hand. Sasuke then uses Chidori and rushes at Raikage. They charge at each other, Sasuke manages to avoid Raikage's attack and hit him with Chidori, however Raikage is too durable and only Sasuke's fingertips pierce him. Raikage then gives Sasuke a powerbomb, but Sasuke saves himself from any serious damage with Susanoo. Sasuke then tries to use Amaterasu, but Raikage uses Body Flicker to avoid it and goes to attack Sasuke again, Sasuke however uses Amaterasu to cover Susanoo but Raikage ignores it and strikes anyway, thrusting Sasuke into the ground. Raikage is about to deal the finishing blow when Gaara appears and stops him.
Gaara tries to talk sense to Sasuke, find common ground, but Sasuke refuses to come to an understanding. While this is happening, Raikage severs his arm that's burning from Amaterasu and is being healed by Shii. Sasuke's Susanoo starts to fully form and everyone launches projectiles, but Susanoo swings his sword and causes the building to collapse on them and flees with Karin to find Danzo. As Sasuke enters the Kage's meeting room, Danzo uses the confusion to escape while Ao, one of the Mizukage's bodyguards, tries to catch him. Sasuke is about to chase after, but the Mizukage stops him by using her blood-line limit, lava, to seal the door shut. She then uses her lava again, using the technique Melting Apparition to try to kill Sasuke, but Sasuke once again uses Susanoo to try to protect himself. Mizukage's other bodyguard, Choujiro, attacks and crashes Sasuke through a wall where Mizukage traps him and herself in. She then uses her other blood-line limit, Skilled Mist, to fill the area with acidic vapor which starts to melt Susanoo's bones and Sasuke himself. L.Zetsu however saves Sasuke, he secretly used his Spore technique to drain everyone's chakra and gives it to Sasuke, but he doesn't collect much since everyone escapes from his technique. The Tsuchikage then tries to kill Sasuke with his blood-line limit, Detachment of the Primitive World to obliterate Sasuke. It appears to have worked, but Madara teleports in holding Sasuke. Madara teleports Sasuke and Karin away and begins talking to the Kages.
Later, Madara intercepts Danzo and his bodyguards, Fu and Torune. After a short fight, Madara teleported Danzo's bodyguards away and brought Sasuke and Karin to fight Danzo. Danzo revealed his right arm to be covered in Sharingans which enraged Sasuke even more, Danzo did some handseals and charged at Sasuke but Sasuke protected himself with Susanoo which grabbed Danzo. Sasuke and Danzo talked for a moment and Susanoo crushed Danzo, but Danzo appeared behind Sasuke and used Vacuum Jewel, which Sasuke was barely able to dodge and got hit in the shoulder. Karin noticed that each time Danzo escapes death that one of the eyes on his arm closes. Sasuke summoned a hawk and charged at Danzo, Danzo used Vacuum Wave forcing Sasuke to jump off of his summon to attack; Danzo grabbed Sasuke by the throat, but Sasuke used his sword to kill Danzo. Danzo reappeared unharmed, at which point Sasuke turned into crows and reformed near Danzo as Itachi.
Itachi used Amaterasu, but it was actually Sasuke's Tsukiyomi and Danzo broke it and paralyzed Sasuke before he could stab him. Danzo placed his paralyzing seal on Sasuke when he grabbed his neck. Karin tried to help Sasuke, but Danzo kicked her away and was about to kill Sasuke when Sasuke used Susanoo to save himself, knocking Danzo away. Sasuke was able to overpower Danzo's seal and was about to use Susanoo's bow & arrow to kill Danzo, but Danzo created a tree to save himself. Susanoo shot another arrow, but Danzo was able to use his jutsu, Izanagi, to resurrect himself again. It's explained that Izanagi blurs reality and illusion, and that for 60 seconds, Danzo is invincible because any injury or death caused will be changed into an illusion; but after which the Sharingan eye can no longer be used. Susanoo shoots another arrow at Danzo but he revives himself and uses Great Vacuum Jewel, but Susanoo blocks it with it's shield/bow. Danzo summons a Baku and it begins to try to suck in Susanoo, Susanoo braces itself though. Danzo appears from behind and blasts Susanoo's back with Vacuum Serial Waves which creates an opening in Susanoo's back and Danzo goes to attack Sasuke, but Sasuke shoots a Grand Fireball at the Baku which makes it gag and Susanoo punches Danzo away. Sasuke's no longer able to sustain Susanoo and it disappears, the two then grab their weapons and attack: Sasuke charges his sword with lightning and Danzo creates a sword of wind, and they stabbed each other.
Danzo had planned on sacrificing the last Sharingan on his arm in order to kill Sasuke, however his last eye had already ran out of time and Sasuke used a genjutsu to trick Danzo into thinking it was still open. Sasuke however was just fatally wounded as Danzo and Karin rushed to heal him, while this was going on Hashirama's D.N.A. was starting to overwhelm Danzo and his right arm grew into a tree, Danzo was able to break himself away before it grew around him; Shisui's Sharingan however was working again and Danzo took off his bandages. Sasuke attacked with Chidori, but Danzo dodged it and grabbed Karin to use her as a shield. Danzo was trying to figure out if he should sacrifice Shisui's Sharingan for Izanagi or use it's mind control in a last-ditch effort to kill Sasuke. Sasuke told Karin not to move and used Chidori Spear, impaling Danzo and Karin. Karin asked why, and Sasuke replied that she became a burden when she was captured. Danzo let Karin's body fall and started to walk away, with Sasuke stalking him, but Madara jumped infront of Danzo and said he'll be taking Shisui's eye. Danzo decided to sacrifice himself to stop Madara and Sasuke instead of trying to survive; he activated the Reverse Four Symbols Seal, creating a vacuum that sucks in everything around him and seals them inside his body. However Madara and Sasuke were able to get to safety.
Madara took Danzo's body to retrieve Shisui's Sharingan, but before he left he told Sasuke that he should finish off Karin so she couldn't fall into enemy hands in her condition. Sasuke was about to do this when Sakura appeared, offering to ally with Sasuke. He saw it as a chance to replace Karin as his medic, and said that he'd let her join him if she proved her intentions by killing Karin. Sakura walked up to Karin and was thinking about attacking Sasuke instead, however Sasuke was about to kill her from behind with a Chidori; but Kakashi sprung out and saved her. He tried to reason with Sasuke, but Sasuke was infuriated that Konoha was so happy due to Itachi's and his clan's demises aswell as the fact that Kakashi has a Sharingan which should only belong to an Uchiha. In his rage, Sasuke used Susanoo and fired an arrow at Kakashi, but he stopped it with his Kamui- the sight of Kakashi's Mangekyou Sharingan only helped to anger Sasuke and his Susanoo changed forms again to look like Itachi's, however Susanoo disappeared and Sasuke was left nearly completely blind.
Sakura ran up on Sasuke and was about to stab him but hesitated and Sasuke was about to stab her in retaliation, but Naruto appeared and saved Sakura from certain death. Seconds from his arrival Naruto begins to sympathize with Sasuke's dark motives however his effort is all in vain as Sasuke simply tells him the pleasure destroying Konoha and gaining revenge will give him. Kakashi advises Naruto that it is useless to try and change Sasuke with his words clearly telling him that Sasuke is a different person now however in order to restrain Kakashi from killing the weakened Sasuke, Naruto has a Shadow Clone lock him in a full nelson. Sasuke takes an opportunity to kill the defenseless Kakashi with a Chidori however in a heartbeat Naruto counters with a Rasengan but he can be seen holding back much of his power in an effort not to kill Sasuke.
As their signature jutsu clash Sasuke coldly tells Naruto that his only options are to kill Sasuke and be forever hailed as a hero in Konoha or die but typically Naruto rejects both options revealing that he has a third option. The resulting clash causes an explosion sending both Naruto and Sasuke flying away from each other and suddenly Zetsu's white half appears from out of nowhere and cushions Sasuke's fall. Madara Uchiha (Tobi) appears beside him preparing to leave but Sasuke quickly asks Madara to wait so that he may hear what Naruto has to say and the clearly matured Naruto says that the two will fight and when they do they will both die together leaving Sasuke enraged who angrily asks Naruto why he cares about him so much and is shocked when he hears Naruto tell him that he is doing so because Sasuke is his friend. Even though he did not anticipate the event, Sasuke assures Naruto that he can tell him whatever he wants he will not change. Before leaving, Naruto tells everyone that the only person Sasuke will fight is him.
Sasuke tells Madara that he wants Itachi's eyes transplanted to him. When Madara askes why the change in heart Sasuke replies that he wanted to fight Naruto with everything he has so he could utterly crush him. After the surgery Sasuke comments that he can feel Itachi's power making him stronger.
Sasuke luego to recover from his surgery, he asks Zetsu if he could take off the bandages. Zetsu said not yet, but when it does, will be looking for a new world. After a while, Sasuke attacks with their Nuevo White Zetsu Susanno and places it in a fire Ametarasu , saying you should try out. Then remove the bandage, revealing hisSharingan Eternal Mangekyōand says his new eyes can see well in darkness. During the fight between Tobi and Naruto, Sasuke out of the depths of the earth and finally goes to the battlefield, taking out his Chokuto while the Sharingan do kills some of the white Zetsu clones and later encounters Itachi who was revived by Kabuto and later wants Itachi to tell the truth.They also encounter Kabuto and began to fight
Ninja's are ranked by their proficiency with the various types of jutsu and other statistics. The score rates as a best out of five and are added up in a total score (Source: First, Second, and Third Third Naruto Databook, officially sanctioned by Naruto creator Masashi Kishimoto).
Sasuke has the Sharingan, a kekkei genkai limited to the Uchiha clan. With the sharingan he's able to see chakra to a limited extent, although not to the clarity of Byakugan. He is able to copy taijutsu and ninjutsu using his sharingan, as demonstrated when he copied Rock Lee's taijutsu. However, he is not able to perform to the extent that Rock Lee could and tires more easily as he has not trained as hard as Rock Lee, he also cannot copy other kekkei genkai nor summonings, and cannot copy elements that he cannot use. The Sharingan can cast genjutsu by making eye contact to fool his opponents. It also allows Sasuke to track his opponent by seeing their chakra.
Sasuke lost the Mangekyou Sharingan after going blind, as all Mangekyou users do eventually.
Sasuke became one of two known Uchiha clan members (the other being Madara Uchiha) who removed their Mangekyou eyes and replaced them with another pair (Itachi's eyes), awakening a combination of the two Mangekyou forms in which the user never again has to worry about the negative effects of the Mangekyou.
During the Chunin Exam's second stage in the Forest of Death, Sasuke was infected with the Juinjutsu (cursed seal) of Orochimaru in disguise. he did this by biting into Sasuke's neck with fangs to inject it as venom. Orochimaru's developed this technique by experimenting upon one of his followers, Juugo. It worked as both a test of Sasuke's ability to survive the cruse and see if Sasuke could be strong enough to be his next vessel, and it was a seed of darkness that would draw him to Orochimaru later. The seal formed on Sasuke's neck as a three tomoe pattern This is a unique pattern given to the Seal of Heaven. Though Sasuke's was sealed using a special technique, the seal would break and allow him to tap into the corrupting power it holds. Each Juinjutsu has two stages. The first is naturally occurring if the victim survives infection. The second must be specifically honed withing a ritual.
The first stage of the curse spreads over the body from the point of the original seal. Though it would cause incredible pain when he would try to use jutsu under this cruse, it also provides increased power by amplifying the amount of charka he could use. He first used this in the Forest of Death against the Sound Ninja that had been tasked to kill him. Though they didn't know they were being used as a test of Sasuke's abilities. With this enhanced chakra, he was able to make short work of these ninja. He would use it again in a fight with Gaara, but he was easily defeated by the power of the Jinchuuriki spirit.
The second stage of Sasuke's seal first appeared in his battle against Naruto. It was cultivated by the Four Sound Ninja who took him away from the Hidden Leaf Village. He was put into a large sealed barrel where the seal was completed. The second stage completely envelopes Sasuke's entire body and takes on a more demonic form. This layer acts as an incredibly strong armor and allows for even greater chakra output that the First Stage release. The outer layer is a brown color and his hair changes to gray. Two large hand shaped wings protrude from his back that allow him to fly.
After counter-absorbing Orochimaru Sasuke gained Orochimaru's abilities. Sasuke however lost all of these abilities, and the Curse Seal, once Orochimaru was removed from him.
In the Naruto anime produced by Studio Pierrot, Sasuke's initial appearance is slightly earlier than his original story appearance from the manga. She is among the class as Naruto and everyone else is forced to retake the Transformation Jutsu in Episode 1. Though, this is actually closer to what appears to be Sasuke in the original manga in Chapter 1, Page 13. He did not appear in Naruto Episode 2 "My Name is Konohamaru", and had his first canon anime appearance in Naruto Episode 3 "Sasuke and Sakura: Friend or Foes?".
In Episode 3, Naruto is purposely trying to instigate a confrontation by standing on Sasuke's desk and getting in his face. The person in the seat directly in front of them stands suddenly to see what's going on and accidentally knocks into Naruto. This pushes Naruto forward, and he ends up falling and kissing Sasuke. In the English dub produced by VIZ Media, the kissing scene was cut away from to show Sakura's reaction only.
Though Sasuke is one of the earliest appearing characters in the Naruto series, he has only appeared in a small handful of the anime movies. His first movei appearance was in the very first Naruto movie, Naruto the Movie: Ninja Clash in the Land of Snow (2004). None of the events in this movie held any canon to the original manga story. Despite several more movies based on Naruto, these were all set after Sasuke's departure to Orochimaru; and he did not appear in any of them. He wouldn't have another movie appearance until the second Naruto Shippuden movie, Naruto Shippuden 2: Bonds (2008).
As a lead character of the Naruto series, Sasuke has appeared in some form in video game franchise of Naruto. His first game appearance was in the fighter for the Nintendo GameCube Naruto: Clash of Ninja(2003). This game was eventually released in the U.S. in March 2006. Though he was a playable character, the Games Story mode only allowed users to use Naruto. He would go on to have numerous other appearances in the game series.
