Naruto Shippuden takes place in a kind of Feudal Japan made up of large ninja clans that came together in Ninja Villages, and the most famous clan in the franchise is undoubtedly the Uchiha. The Uchiha Clan is one of the most well-known clans in Naruto.
Sharingan holders possessed extraordinary combat skills and were a fundamental part of the anime’s history. This article will explore some interesting facts about the Uchiha Clan, from their history to their abilities and special powers.
Facts about the Uchiha Clan
Sasuke’s father possessed the Mangekyou Sharingan.
Many fans don’t know this, but Fugaku, the father of Sasuke and Itachi, was able to use the Mangekyou Sharingan but kept it a secret for his entire life.
After showing him the Uchiha Clan’s Stone inside the Naka Shrine, he only revealed this to Itachi.
The founder of the clan also created Ninjutsu.
The founder of the Uchiha clan, Indra Otsutsuki, was one of the sons of Hagoromo Otsutsuki, the legendary Sage of the Six Paths. When Indra was alive, ninjutsu did not yet exist, and a few people could use Ninshu, a primitive way of manipulating chakra.
After being influenced by Zetsu to believe that Ninshu was weak and incomplete, Indra created Ninjutsu and spread it among the people of Naruto’s world.
Many clan members were against Madara becoming Hokage.
After countless years at war, the Uchiha and Senju clans made a truce to seek peace, which culminated in the creation of the Hidden Leaf Village. Madara and Hashirama were responsible for forming this peace agreement, and Hashirama recommended that Madara be the village’s first Hokage.
However, the village leader was chosen by vote, and Hashirama won almost unanimously. Most of the Uchiha Clan did not believe Madara would be a good leader and voted against the clan leader, who disowned the village and swore to destroy them all.
Sasuke didn’t originally exist.
Sasuke did not exist in Masashi Kishimoto’s original plans for Naruto. When the work was still in its early stages, one of Masashi Kishimoto’s editors came up with the idea of creating a friend and rival for Naruto so that the young protagonist would have a boost to become stronger. The author liked the idea, and that’s how Sasuke was born.
Itachi’s first victim was the girl he loved.
We already know about the genocide provoked by Itachi, who killed his family, friends, and almost his entire clan. However, an essential detail that few people know is about a girl named Izumi Uchiha, who was in love with Itachi and was his first victim of the genocide.
However, Itachi also had strong feelings for the young woman; he killed her using the Tsukuyomi genjutsu, allowing the girl to live forever in a world where she and Itachi lived together happily for eternity.
