  1. Itachi Uchiha is a character belonging to the Naruto franchise and best known as Sasuke Uchiha’s older brother. Itachi was regarded as a prodigy from the start and quickly climbed the ranks to become an Anbu captain.

    After having to face a difficult choice Itachi was led to murder his entire clan sparing only his younger brother, Sasuke. Thus, leading Sasuke to harbor a strong hatred for his brother. Soon after, he joined the Akatsuki, an international terrorist organization, and became a criminal wanted by the entire shinobi world.

    The reasons for killing his clan are later revealed. It is found that his actions were not in cold blood but guided by the village elders, namely Danzo Shimura, and the actions of his father Fugaku Uchiha, the head of the Uchiha clan. To fight against their exclusion from the rest of the village the Uchiha plan a coup that forced Itachi’s hand, leading him to make a choice. Oblivious to all of this, Sasuke spends part of his life training to get stronger and obtain the Sharingan and then the Mangekyou to have the strength to go against his traitorous brother.

    In Naruto Shippuden Sasuke finally faces off against Itachi leading to an epic battle between the brothers. As a conclusion to that fight, Sasuke comes out victorious, achieving his goal to kill Itachi. However, the actual reason behind Itachi’s death was a terminal illness. With much effort, Itachi managed to prolong his life through various medications and sheer will so he could meet his end by the hands of his brother. By the end of his battle with Sasuke, he has exhausted so much of his chakra that he collapses and finally dies through his illness. The nature of that illness is unknown but he does get his wish to be judged by none other than his little brother.
