Itachi Uchiha is a missing-nin from Konohagakure, and a prominent member of Akatsuki, partnered with Kisame Hoshigaki. He is Sasuke Uchiha's older brother.

Itachi is relatively popular among many fans of Naruto, often having ranked in the top ten in Shonen Jump magazine's popularity polls since his introduction. He was first ranked in the third character popularity poll ranked in 11th place. He was ranked 9th place during the fourth popularity poll, and 6th place in the fifth popularity poll. During the sixth, most recent popularity poll, he again was ranked in 11th place.

Itachi was born into the Uchiha clan and was praised by all as the best of his generation - a genius above all others. Even by the standards of the battle-adept Uchiha clan, Itachi's prowess far outshined all others. However, not even his family, friends, or teachers could understand him. When he was only 4, Itachi had already witnessed countless lives lost due to the Third Great Shinobi World War, which emotionally traumatized him and turned him into a pacifist. At age 7, he graduated from the Ninja Academy at the top of his class after only one year, mastered the Sharingan at age 8, passed the Chunin Exams at age 10, and became ANBU Captain at age 13. According to Madara Uchiha, Itachi also had a lover, whom he killed during the Uchiha clan massacre.

He was praised highly by his father, who saw the family's future in Itachi, hence neglecting his other son - Itachi's younger brother, Sasuke. However, during this time Itachi showed great affection towards his little brother, Sasuke, and even encouraged his father to come to the Academy when Sasuke was enrolled, something their dad had otherwise forgotten, by saying that he would not go to an important mission, that would establish Itachi a place in the ANBU ranks, otherwise.

When the Uchiha began planning to overthrow Konoha, Itachi, as an ANBU, was tasked with spying on the village. Knowing that a coup d'etat would only lead to another Ninja War,but Itachi began spying on the Uchiha instead, passing on information to the Third Hokage and the other Konoha elders. After this he began to act strangely, not attending the clan meetings, speaking out against the clan, and becoming the prime suspect for the murder of his best friend, Shisui Uchiha. The clan lost hope in Itachi, and his father began shifting his focus to Sasuke instead. Meanwhile, the Third's attempts to negotiate a bloodless end to hostilities between the two parties were proving ineffective, so, against the Third's wishes, Danzo and the Konoha Council ordered Itachi to wipe out the Uchiha.

Before the fateful night arrived, Itachi discovered the existence of Madara Uchiha, who was attempting to rekindle the flames of war in Konoha. In return for not attacking Konoha, Itachi offered to help Madara claim vengeance against the Uchiha for turning their backs on him decades earlier. Madara agreed. Itachi slaughtered his entire clan overnight, sparing only Sasuke. Sasuke's life was worth more than the village to Itachi, and he could not follow through with the orders to kill him as well. Instead, he made himself out as a villain, who had killed their innocent family only to test his abilities. By doing so, he wanted Sasuke to take vengeance on him and become a hero to Konoha, thus redeeming the Uchiha name. He tortured Sasuke with his Mangekyo Sharingan, and encouraged him to become strong enough to kill him and avenge their family. Hoping that his beloved little brother would someday be powerful enough to kill him, Itachi left the village as a traitor.

Knowing that Konoha would still want to eliminate Sasuke, Itachi pleaded with the Third Hokage to keep Sasuke safe. He also threatened Danzo to not harm Sasuke or risk him revealing everything he knew about Konoha's secrets to enemy countries. Sasuke's safety was therefore secured, and Itachi returned to his original plan of becoming infamous for his slaughter of the Uchiha.

Itachi joined Akatsuki in order to keep an eye on the organization, along with Madara Uchiha, in case either ever acted against Konoha, all the while planning for his death at Sasuke's hands. While a member of Akatsuki, Itachi was approached by Orochimaru, who tried to steal his body to gain the Sharingan. Itachi trapped him in a genjutsu and severed his left hand as punishment, forcing Orochimaru to flee the organization. Sometime after joining Akatsuki, Itachi later helped recruit Deidara, Orochimaru's replacement, by beating him in battle, after which Deidara swore vengeance again.


Ever since his first appearance, Itachi had always been mysterious, and had acted as though he was hiding his true self. While flashbacks to his past showed that he was a compassionate brother and person, his later acts and claims made it seem that this was mostly just an act. But, surprisingly, he genuinely was the compassionate brother he had once claimed to be, although he hid this from the rest of the Akatsuki to protect Sasuke.

As a member of Akatsuki, he possessed incredible self-control of his emotions. He constantly displayed an emotionless personality. He only showed surprise when opponents proved more powerful or skilled than he had expected, and even then he didn't lose his composure. He did not possess any arrogance, and fully justified any statements he made about his power, even complimenting his opponents at times on their abilities.

In addition to being an extremely powerful ninja, Itachi had equally impressive intelligence, and was shown to be very wise. He was exceedingly sharp and observant to any situation at hand, as he was rarely surprised or caught off guard. He also displayed great intuition, as he was almost never deceived and even then almost instantly realized the truth. Despite his status as a wanted criminal, and having murdered a significant portion of his family, Itachi took no enjoyment in violence or combat, instead preferring to avoid battle or, if this was not possible, end it as quickly as he could.

Itachi's only initial interest was in Akatsuki's goals, and his only loyalties appeared to be to the organization and its members, seeming to put the organization's success and secrecy before everything else.As such, Itachi got along with his partner, Kisame, much better than most other Akatsuki members did with their own partners. Kisame appeared to have a deep loyalty to Itachi, immediately doing as he instructed and constantly looking out for his well-being. Itachi treated all of his fellow Akatsuki members to this same, more respectful personality, although his courtesy was rarely returned by the other members.

However, when he was in a genjutsu duel during his fight with Sasuke, he cruelly claimed he had only let Sasuke live so that he could take Sasuke's eyes and obtain his own Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan, after which he then claimed the Uchiha clan had been nothing but tainted and evil, since many members would kill their friends to gain the Mangekyo Sharingan, and would take another Uchiha's eyes to make its power permanent. Once the genjutsu was released, he called it his true self, implying his calm, emotionless personality was also a facade. This persona was later revealed to be only an act to ensure that he would die by Sasuke's hands, his love for his younger brother being the fundamental aspect of his personality.

Despite his status as an infamous shinobi, his appearance was not the most intimidating, apart from the intensity of his eyes. While living in Konoha, he would regularly have a gentle and caring look in his eyes, especially directed towards his younger brother. After joining Akatsuki, he would regularly have a stern look to them. He was a fairly tall shinobi, whose basic appearance was very much like the rest of his clan.

He, like all members of his clan, possessed dark grey eyes, and also had black hair that hung near his cheeks to frame his face. He also had the addition of a long ponytail in the back of his hair (which he obscured with his Akatsuki cloak after joining the organization). Being brothers, Itachi and Sasuke had a similar appearance, but with subtle differences. Itachi's hair color appeared slightly duller and with a softer flow to it, without the spiky style at the back. His skin was also slightly darker. Itachi's most distinguishing characteristics were the long pronounced creases under his eyes.

When he lived in Konoha, his casual clothes would consist of a black shirt with a large Uchiha clan symbol on the back of it, and black pants with a weapons pouch strapped to them. When on duty, he would wear the traditional ANBU uniform, although he was never shown wearing a mask. As a member of Akatsuki, he wore the traditional Akatsuki cloak, and usually kept the center of it buttoned down. After his cloak was incinerated by Sasuke's Kirin during their fight in Part II, it was revealed that he still wore his casual clothes underneath it. Like almost all members of Akatsuki, he wore the headband of his home village, Konoha, with a line gouged through it, to symbolize his broken ties with the village (although, secretly, he was actually still loyal to his village).


Since a young age, Itachi's intellect and talent showed their brilliance in everything he did, as even his teachers said his progress hardly required any help. In the few battles he had been seen in since the start of the series, Itachi was shown to be an incredibly powerful ninja, and easily one of the strongest in the Naruto series, as demonstrated by his ability to easily defeat Deidara, Sasuke, Kakashi Hatake, Kurenai Yuhi and Orochimaru (twice), who themselves are considered amongst the strongest ninjas in Naruto. Being a pacifist, Itachi did not actively take part in battle, typically only acting in self-defense.

Jutsu Master

Itachi was a master of all the Uchiha clan's techniques, along with the Sharingan, and had great prowess with all of the three main types of jutsu. When battling against Kakashi, Kurenai, and Asuma, Kakashi commented that Itachi wasn't fighting with even half of his strength.

Itachi was also noted to be very fast, particularly with his hand movements. This extended to weaving hand seals and throwing weapons, as he was able to reveal a set of shurikens with one hand and then suddenly attack the opponent with a form of Ninjutsu. His speed was such that neither Sasuke nor Kakashi (Sharingan users) could follow his movements in either case. Despite his extensive use of genjutsu, Itachi appeared to be quite skilled in taijutsu as well, as demonstrated when he brutally beat Sasuke during their reunion in Konoha. Itachi's techniques also often involved usage of crows, both in ninjutsu and genjutsu.


Being of the Uchiha Clan, and as noted by Kakashi, Itachi was a true successor of the Sharingan Eye. From a stationary position, he would study an opponent's movements with his Sharingan and respond accordingly, often with a genjutsu. He could cast a genjutsu by merely pointing at or looking at someone, and could similarly turn an opponent's genjutsu against them with Demonic Illusion: Mirror Heaven and Earth Change. Itachi had trained so much with his eyes that he had reached the stage where he could have his Sharingan activated the entire time, with minimal drain on his chakra levels.

Mangekyo Sharingan

Itachi possessed the Mangekyo Sharingan, which increased his already great power, and enabled him to use his most powerful techniques. With his left eye, he could use Tsukuyomi, a genjutsu that traps an opponent's mind in an illusionary world, torturing them for what seems like days in a matter of seconds.With his right eye he could use Amaterasu, a ninjutsu which allowed him to create a black flame that he could direct by moving his eye to burn through seemingly anything in its path, including fire itself. His final technique was Susanoo, a technique that manifested itself as a spectral being, labelled as the "Raging God of Battle" in the databook. It wielded the Totsuka Sword, an ethereal sword with the ability to seal anything it pierces into the gourd that serves as its hilt, and Yata's Mirror, a shield that can reflect any attack. Zetsu, a fellow Akatsuki member, stated that Itachi's mastery of the Sharingan, combined with the legendary weapons of Susanoo, made him invincible.

Despite his mastery of the Mangekyo Sharingan, Itachi suffered greatly from its side effects. His eyesight would worsen after every activation of the Mangekyo Sharingan, and he would eventually go blind from its power, with his Sharingan forever sealed away. Itachi was so close to blindness that, by the time he activated Susanoo in his final fight, both Sharingan eyes had become almost blind, and had turned white. However, he was still able to perform his own Fūinjutsu in his last moments.


◦Name: Water Release: Water Encampment Wall (水遁・水陣壁, Suiton: Suijinheki; English TV "Water Style: Water Wall")
◦Type: B-rank, Defensive, Short range (0-5m)
◦Users: Tobirama Senju, Kakashi Hatake
◦Hand seals: Tiger, Serpent, Tiger
◦Debut (Anime): Naruto Episode 71
◦Debut (Manga): Chapter 120
This defensive jutsu creates a wall of water that can be up to 360° if necessary. This wall of water is especially efficient at stopping fire techniques though is unable to defend against elemental fusion and combination techniques such as those employed by Kakuzu. In the manga the hand seal sequence for this jutsu ends in the same seal that activate the Byakugan, though Tobirama Senju only needs one to use this jutsu. Furthermore the anime creates a completely original and far more elaborate set of hand seals when Tobirama uses it in the form of having the right hand cupping the left hand with a thumbs-up. Kakashi Hatake after the time skip is shown to be able to execute this jutsu in an area with no water by blowing water from his mouth (through his mask) suggesting that the ninja only blows out a stream of chakra that turns into water externally. Tobirama also used this method during the Destruction of Konoha arc, and it was this jutsu that made the Konoha ANBU in attendance marvel at his ability to use such a high level technique in a place with no water, meaning it must be quite a remarkable feat.

Water Release: Water Dragon Bullet Technique

◦Name: Water Release: Water Dragon Bullet Technique (水遁・水龍弾の術, Suiton: Suiryūdan no Jutsu; English TV "Water Style: Water Dragon Jutsu")
◦Type: B-rank, Offensive

◦Debut (Anime): Naruto Episode 9
◦Debut (Manga): Chapter 15
Water Release: Water Dragon Bullet Technique is a giant, powerful dragon created out of water. It is first revealed in the series by Zabuza Momochi and copied at the same time by Kakashi Hatake (although it is possible that he already knew the jutsu). This jutsu needs 42 hand seals, the most amount of hand seals necessary to use a jutsu shown in the series. Another drawback to the technique is that it requires the user to be near a large body of water to complete the technique. However, Tobirama Senju was able to produce one far from water and with only one hand seal, which was a testament to his skill and one of the reasons why he was selected as Hokage.

Water Release: Great Waterfall Technique

Summoning Technique: Earth Release: Tracking Fang Technique

◦Name: Summoning Technique: Earth Release: Tracking Fang Technique (口寄せ・土遁・追牙の術, Kuchiyose: Doton: Tsuiga no Jutsu; English TV "Summoning Earth Style: Fang Pursuit Jutsu")
◦Type: B-rank, Offensive, All ranges
◦User: Kakashi Hatake
◦Hand Seals: Tiger, Snake, Dragon, Dog, and then proceed to put your hands on the ground
◦Debut (Anime): Naruto Episode 17
◦Debut (Manga): Chapter 29
This jutsu allows Kakashi to summon his own personal Ninken to perform special tasks. To use this technique, he rolls out a scroll and places a slid of blood on it. Afterwards he places it between his hands and makes the seals. With this he slams the scroll into the ground and releases several seals into the ground. This summons his eight Ninken that then travels through the ground following the scent of their target, emerging when the target is found and holds them in place, with their mouths. Also, Kakashi can summon them using a normal summoning skill, but they will not appear underground and are usually used for tracking in this state. When Kakashi uses the technique in the games, he will also strike immediately with the Lightning Blade

Shadow of the Dancing Leaf

◦Name: Shadow of the Dancing Leaf (影舞葉, Kage Buyō; Viz "Leaf Shadow Dance", English TV "Dancing Leaf Shadow")
◦Type:: C-rank, Supplementary, Short range (0-5m)
◦Users: Maito Gai, Rock Lee, Sasuke Uchiha, Kakashi Hatake
◦Debut (Anime): Naruto Episode 22
◦Debut (Manga): Chapter 37
The Shadow of the Dancing Leaf is used to position a ninja's opponent into a vulnerable aerial position. The ninja will first quickly appear below their opponent, then with a swift upper kick they will launch their target into the air. The ninja will then jump into the air to "shadow" the target with the target's back to their chest. Since this is the opponent's blind spot, it can be used as a set up to a number of jutsu. Rock Lee uses it in preparation for the Front Lotus. Sasuke, after copying it from Lee, uses it for his Lion Combo, but because he lacks Lee's training it puts some strain on his body.


◦Name: Kamui (神威; Literally meaning "Might of the Gods")
◦Type: Kekkei Genkai, No rank, Offensive, Defensive, All ranges
◦User: Kakashi Hatake
◦Debut (Anime): Shippūden Episode 29
◦Debut (Manga): Chapter 276
By focusing his Mangekyo Sharingan on a particular point, Kakashi can force that point to collapse in on itself, ultimately sending everything in the vicinity to another dimension. Kamui costs a large amount of chakra to perform, especially in Kakashi's case as his body has not completely adjusted to the Sharingan. Kakashi can only manage to use this technique up to three times in a given day even when starting at full strength. When first seen Kakashi's aim is imperfect, it taking two attempts to hit Deidara with the technique. By the time of Pain's attack on Konoha his aim has improved, being able to focus more accurately on fast moving objects. The chakra used by this technique is proportional to the mass of the target.

Hidden Mist Technique

◦Name: Hidden Mist Technique (霧隠れの術, Kirigakure no Jutsu; Viz "Kirigakure Jutsu"", English TV "Ninja Art: Hidden Mist Jutsu"; Meaning (Viz) "Art of Hiding in the Mist")

◦Debut (Anime): Naruto Episode 7
◦Debut (Manga): Chapter 12
This jutsu envelops the surrounding area in a dense mist, reducing visibility within the affected area. The density can be controlled by the user, allowing them to create a mist so thick that even they can't see through it.

Front Lotus

◦Name: Front Lotus (表蓮華, Omote Renge; Viz "Initial Lotus", English TV "Primary Lotus")
◦Type: Kinjutsu, B-rank, Offensive, Short range (0-5m)
◦Users: Maito Gai, Rock Lee, Kakashi Hatake (Anime only)
◦Debut (Anime): Naruto Episode 31
◦Debut (Manga): Chapter 52
Front Lotus requires the opening of the first of the Eight Chakra Gates, giving the user five times their normal strength. The user launches the opponent into the air and then uses Shadow of the Dancing Leaf. Now behind his opponent, the user restrains them and pildrives them into the ground headfirst. Because it uses one of the chakra gates, the user is left extremely fatigued, making this jutsu a "double-edged sword." Kakashi has been shown to be able to use this technique, but to a much lesser degree than Gai and Lee.

Fire Release: Great Fireball Technique

◦Name: Fire Release: Great Fireball Technique (火遁・豪火球の術, Katon: Gōkakyu no Jutsu; English TV "Fire Style: Fireball Jutsu")

The fireball ignites externally (as evidenced by Kakashi Hatake's ability to use the jutsu without burning his mask). The Uchiha clan uses the technique as a "coming of age" technique. This technique apparently requires more than average chakra reserves and most Genin should not be able to do this technique.

◦Debut (Manga): Chapter 69
This jutsu is used to suppress jutsu-induced marks on a person. Marks of weaker power can be completely suppressed by this jutsu alone, but for marks of higher power like Sasuke Uchiha's Cursed Seal of Heaven, this seal is dependent on the recipient's willpower to some extent. It is also capable of holding back certain kekkei genkai, such as that of the Kurama clan as seen when Kurenai tried to do this. This seal requires a number of hand seals and a large amount of chakra to be performed.

Earth Release: Double Suicide Decapitation Technique

When used on Sakura, she sees a vision of a dying and mutilated Sasuke, causing her to scream and faint.

◦Debut (Anime): Naruto Episode 17
◦Debut (Manga): Chapter 29
This is the basic form of all summoning techniques. It is a space/time type ninjutsu. When summoning an animal it requires a contract, hand seals and the user's blood. The blood is used as a signature to make the contract, which can either be written on a scroll or tattoo to validate it. The hand that is used to make the signature with is used to summon. It should be noted that anyone can summon the animal as long as they have the blood from someone who has made a contract, along with sufficent chakra of their own. Animals are typically summoned from another location, for the toads it is from Myobokuzan‎. The target usually manifests itself after the ninja summoner strikes his hand or hands against any surface, afterwhich the specific summon will appear. As an alternative to the normal hand seals, the same contract that appears on the ground during the summoning can be drawn by hand and activated, producing the same result. The type of animal summoned is determined by the contract. The amount of chakra used to summon the animal is proportional to the size and power of the summoned animal. Once summoned, the animal can perform a task or help the user in battle.

◦Type: C-rank, Offensive, Mid-range (5-10m)
◦Users: Sasuke Uchiha, Anko Mitarashi, Itachi Uchiha
◦Hand Seals: Snake, Dragon, Rabbit, Tiger
◦Debut (Anime): Naruto Episode 30
◦Debut (Manga): Chapter 49
The user breathes fire along a cord or any other type of long object. While the technique is shown in the anime to be even larger and more devastating than Fire Release: Great Fireball Technique (and being able to melt rock), in the manga it is shown to be nothing more than a small burst of flame running along a line of wire.

Fire Release: Great Fireball Technique

◦Name: Fire Release: Great Fireball Technique (火遁・豪火球の術, Katon: Gōkakyu no Jutsu; English TV "Fire Style: Fireball Jutsu")
◦Type: C-rank, Offensive, Short range (0-5m)
◦Users: Uchiha clan, Oki, various Konohagakure ninja
◦Hand Seals: Snake, Ram, Monkey, Boar, Horse, Tiger
◦Debut (Anime): Naruto Episode 5
◦Debut (Manga): Chapter 7
After performing the necessary hand seals, a ninja inhales air via their mouth and, utilizing a large amount of fire chakra, spews a large fireball from their mouth, incinerating everything in range. The fireball ignites externally (as evidenced by Kakashi Hatake's ability to use the jutsu without burning his mask). The Uchiha clan uses the technique as a "coming of age" technique. This technique apparently requires more than average chakra reserves and most Genin should not be able to do this technique.

SHadow Clone Technique

◦Name: Shadow Clone Technique (影分身の術, Kage Bunshin no Jutsu; Viz "Art of the Doppelganger", English TV "Shadow Clone Jutsu", UK DVD "Art of Shadow Body Splitting")
◦Type: B-rank, Supplementary
◦Users: Naruto Uzumaki, Hiruzen Sarutobi, Shizune, Kakashi Hatake, Itachi Uchiha, Ebisu, Konohamaru Sarutobi, Jiraiya, some Jonin-level ninja
◦Hand Seals: Tiger with left, and right, adjust to form cross
◦Debut (Anime): Naruto Episode 1
◦Debut (Manga): Chapter 1
Similar to the Clone Technique, this jutsu creates clones of the user. Unlike the Clone Technique, these clones are actual copies, not illusions. The user's chakra is evenly distributed among every clone, giving each clone an equal fraction of the user's overall power. The clones are capable of performing jutsu on their own and can even bleed, but will usually disperse after one or two solid blows. They can also disperse on their own.

Unlike other clone techniques, they can't be detected by the Byakugan because the clones have the exact same amount of chakra and aren't made from any other substance, making them indistinguishable from the actual person. Sasuke Uchiha claims that the Sharingan can tell the difference during his battle with Naruto at the Valley of the End, albeit they might just make him able to keep track of the original Naruto.

While seemingly useless, the technique can be useful if used correctly. During the first bell test, Kakashi was able to throw Naruto a great distance, probably propelling him with chakra. Naruto would later find out that the point behind the technique was to target the opponents blind spot, and when one substitutes their fingers for a kunai with an explosive tag, it can be a lethal technique. The aforementioned variant has only been used by Naruto.

Magen • Kyouten Chiten - Demonic Illusion • Mirror Heaven and Earth Change
Character Use: Uchiha Itachi
Rank: -
Note: Special Bloodline Technique
Range: Close (0m ~ 5m)
Type: Supplementary

Magen • Kyouten Chiten is a Genjutsu technique unique to the Uchiha bloodline Sharingan holders. Using the copy and counter functions of the Sharingan eye, the Uchiha clan member can stop the sensory spell cast on their body and reverse it back on their opponent.

Utakata - Ephemeral
Character Use: Uchiha Itachi
Rank: Unknown
Range: Close (0m ~ 5m)
Type: Supplementary

Utakata is a Genjutsu technique utilized by Akatsuki member Uchiha Itachi. Itachi will start this technique by using only one finger on his right hand. His target does not have to look into his eyes, a glance at the hand itself will be enough. Once inside the illusion, he can control the visions the ninja sees. This illusion can also be used to play on the fears of the target, causing them to see and hear those who they care about

Itachi's fire-enhanced shurikenjutsu.

Even within the Uchiha clan, Itachi was a ninja of prodigious talent, consistently showing prowess well-beyond his years and rising rapidly through the ninja ranks. He was highly proficient in all three main ninja skill sets and gained praise from allies and foes alike; Orochimaru, one of the Sannin, openly admitted Itachi was stronger than he was. Obito claimed that despite being crippled by illness, Itachi was still capable of killing Sasuke during their battle if he wanted to. Shisui Uchiha, who was hailed as the strongest Uchiha of his time, claimed that Itachi would go on to surpass him and would be the one to protect the Uchiha name. A pacifist at heart, Itachi did not actually like fighting and would avoid it when he could. When he couldn't, he would end the fight as quickly as possible, all the while holding himself back. Even when restrained in this way, multiple jōnin were still pushed to their limits against Itachi. In the anime, he could defeat a perfect jinchūriki Kage in Yagura after Jūzō blocks a Tailed Beast Ball with the Kubikiribōchō.

Chakra and Physical Prowess

Itachi clashing with Naruto.

As an Uchiha, Itachi's chakra was naturally strong, but his actual reserves became very depleted, exacerbated from his terminal illness. This prevented him from participating in prolonged battles and limited his use of Mangekyō Sharingan techniques to three times a day before he needed significant rest, at which point even his Sharingan deactivated. Itachi had very refined chakra control, however, which compensated for this. He was even able to perform his techniques with one-handed seals.

Although rarely involving himself in such combat, Itachi was very skilled with taijutsu – enough to easily defeat three members of the Konoha Military Police Force at the age of eleven. He had impressive speed and reflexes, particularly with his hand movements. This extended to both throwing weapons and hand seals, making it appear as if he could perform his techniques without seals; even skilled Sharingan users had difficulty keeping track of him. His speed allowed him to attack first in a battle, then immediately move to the location his opponent retreated to before they even realised he was gone, giving them no chance to initiate a counter-attack. Itachi also had notable physical strength. Itachi was able to block an attack from a Samehada-wielding Kisame with nothing but a kunai.

Itachi's Crow Clone Technique.

Itachi could summon crows, which he would typically call forth in flocks to swarm opponents and distract them. He even integrated crows into clones of himself that would draw opponents' attacks. He was likewise able to create shadow clones and from which could lure in opponents before exploding. Itachi was also well-versed in fūinjutsu, particularly those that would activate in the presence of a specific person's Sharingan. From his time in Anbu, Itachi became proficient in stealth, infiltration, and assassination.


As a fully-trained Konoha Anbu, Itachi was skilled with a sword, which was his primary weapon during the Uchiha Clan Downfall. Like many Uchiha, he specialised and was advanced in shurikenjutsu. Even as a child, Itachi could perfectly hit an intricate set of eight targets, one of which was hidden in a blind spot, by accurately deflecting his projectile off another one to redirect both projectiles' path in mid-air. His throwing speed was unprecedented, enough to keep up with and therefore negate the advantages of the Summoning: Lightning Flash Blade Creation. He was equally comfortable with kunai, able to use them to spar with opponents wielding swords. In the anime, he learned advanced sleight-of-hand from Shisui to give his opponents even less time to react.

Nature Transformation

Itachi using the Great Fireball Technique.

Itachi's nature transformations included Fire, Water, Wind, Yin, and Yang Release. As an Uchiha, he had a natural affinity for Fire Release, mastering the clan's Great Fireball Technique at a very young age. He would often coat shuriken with fire to increase their offensive capacities. With Water Release, Itachi could perform the advanced Water Dragon Bullet Technique without an external water source, as well as shape existing water into tendrils to strike his opponents from behind.

Itachi using Tsukuyomi on Kakashi.

Consistent with his pacifist nature, Itachi specialised in genjutsu typically performed with his Sharingan. His illusions often involved crows and could be initiated after only the briefest moment of eye contact. They were so seamless that even targets that knew to expect genjutsu might not immediately realise that they'd fallen prey to him. If opponents tried to avoid eye contact in fear of his Sharingan, Itachi could instead cast genjutsu by merely pointing at them. Itachi could also use genjutsu to share information or psychologically disable opponents, allowing him to end fights before they even began. Against other genjutsu users, he could turn their genjutsu against them. Ao noted that Itachi was the only person who could use his genjutsu to control other individuals outside the range of even the Sensor Division.

Itachi's Sharingan.

Itachi awakened and mastered the Sharingan by the age of eight, demonstrating skill and power superior to most members of his clan. In the anime, his prowess and exploits with it earned him great fame as "Itachi of the Sharingan" (写輪眼のイタチ, Sharingan no Itachi). He keeps his Sharingan active near-constantly with minimal drain on his chakra levels. The Sharingan allows Itachi to see the flow of chakra, predict movements, as well as facilitate his use of genjutsu. Also, with the Sharingan he could perform Izanami, a counterpart to the more dangerous Izanagi.

Mangekyō Sharingan

Itachi's Mangekyō Sharingan.

Itachi awakened the Mangekyō Sharingan after the suicide of Shisui Uchiha. Its design was three spiralling curves around the pupil. With his left eye, he could use Tsukuyomi, a genjutsu that trapped opponents' minds in an illusory world, altering their perception of time to make seconds of torture seem like days. With his right eye he could use Amaterasu, igniting whatever he looked at with black flames that would burn anything, including fire itself. He had the ability to extinguish Amaterasu, but never displayed the sort of shape transformation that Sasuke later would.

Itachi's armoured Susanoo wielding the Yata Mirror.

Having awakened the Mangekyō in both his eyes, Itachi could also use Susanoo. With its simplest manifestations, he could produce extra arms or bones to improve his options in a fight. When used in full, Itachi was surrounded by a spectral warrior that would protect him from all damage, even jutsu as powerful as Kirin. In addition to the chakra swords and Yasaka Magatama common to all Susanoo, Itachi's Susanoo wielded the Sword of Totsuka – an ethereal sword with the ability to seal any person it pierced into its gourd—hilt – and the Yata Mirror – a shield that was said to reflect any attack by changing its chakra nature to counterbalance an attack. The simultaneous use of both weapons made Itachi's Susanoo essentially invincible.

Using any of these techniques required vast amounts of chakra to perform and left Itachi so fatigued afterwards that he had to deactivate his Sharingan altogether. Every time he used his Mangekyō Sharingan his eyesight deteriorated, a process that would progressively worsen on each occasion. Early uses of the Mangekyō would only cause his eyes to bleed, but by the end of his life he reached the point where he was nearly blind, most things looking to him like mere blurs. He does not suffer these shortcomings after his reincarnation and can use all his Mangekyō techniques without problems.

As a precaution, Itachi programmed Sasuke's Sharingan to react to Tobi's.

Itachi was a highly intelligent individual, having the highest scores in the history of the Academy next to Minato Namikaze. He was solemn and observant; he thought very quickly and remained calm in a fight, enabling him to respond with maximum efficiency and with the smallest likelihood of misjudging circumstances. If an opponent exceeded his expectations or posed a legitimate challenge to him or his allies, Itachi would freely admit it. Even at a young age, his studies of history gave him remarkable foresight and a cost-benefit understanding on par with the Hokage; he took several precautions for Sasuke and against Tobi that he planned would activate after his death. Even Tobi admitted if he didn't keep some secrets from Itachi, he might have been killed by Itachi's trap.

:crown: Top 5 Jutsu Of Itachi Uchiha :crown:

                              :crown: Demonic Illusion:Mirage Crow(魔幻・蜃鴉) :crown:

This genjutsu traps a victim in a powerful illusion, with no necessary eye contact; similar to Ephemeral, however, direct eye contact can still be applied when using this technique. When used, the genjutsu projects a torrent of crows, leaving the opponent at the user's mercy.

user uploaded image

                                                :crown: Tsukuyomi(月読) :crown:

Tsukuyomi is noted to be one of the most powerful genjutsu in existense.

Tsukuyomi requires eye contact to be performed, trapping the target within an illusion completely under the user's control.

Itachi's prowess with the technique has allowed him to alter the perception of time with ease within the genjutsu to make a few seconds seem like many days as a means to torture the target. This results in the victim suffering psychological trauma that incapacitates them for a considerable period of time. In the anime, during Part I, Itachi's use of the Tsukuyomi typically featured a red moon casting a red light throughout the illusion with a cloudy atmosphere, giving the background a blood-red appearance while the victim within the illusion is in depicted in an inverted grey scale.such a powerful technique is not without its disadvantages however.

Due to the complexity of the illusion and the quickness with which it is executed, an enormous amount of chakra is necessary and an added amount of stress is placed on the left eye, leaving Itachi's vision more blurred. Before using it on Kakashi in Part I, Itachi stated that the Tsukuyomi can only be broken by a Sharingan user that shares the same blood as him which is demonstrated when Sasuke overcame Itachi's Tsukuyomi in their final battle.

                                                 :crown: Amaterasu(天照) :crown:

Amaterasu is a Mangekyō Sharingan Dōjutsu, and the highest level of Fire Release. Amaterasu is the antipode to Tsukuyomi.

Amaterasu produces black flames at the focal point of the user's vision. In most situations, this makes Amaterasu impossible to avoid. However, if the target can move fast enough to prevent being focused on, Amaterasu will miss them when it's cast.Once created, it can continue burning for seven days and seven nights.

The flames cannot be extinguished with water or any other normal methods; only the user can put the flames out.Said to be "the fires from hell" and to burn as hot as the sun itself, Amaterasu burns any material — other flames included — until nothing but ash remains.Use of this technique puts a great deal of strain on the user, usually causing their eyes to bleed.

For all its lethal potential, Amaterasu burns fairly slowly, allowing targets to remove burning clothes before their body is caught ablaze or, if it's too late for that, remove the burning body part(s) before it spreads.Other defensive options are pushing the flames away, absorbing them,certain space-time jutsu or being the jinchuuriki of the Ten-Tails. While impractical as a defence, Amaterasu can also be sealed.

                                                         :crown: Susanoo(須佐能乎) :crown:

Susanoo is a gigantic, humanoid avatar made of the user's chakra, which surrounds them and fights on their behalf. It is the strongest ability available to those who have awakened the Mangekyō Sharingan in both eyes.

When activated, Susanoo forms around the user and becomes an extension of their will, acting and attacking on their behalf. By default, Susanoo is anchored to its user and they to it: in its less developed forms it will move around with the user; in its more completed forms the user will be suspended within Susanoo, being brought with it as it moves around.This connection allows Susanoo to shield against physical attacks, one that becomes more difficult to penetrate as it is manifested more fully.

If it is damaged, Susanoo does not regenerate and it can only be repaired either by advancing it to the next developmental stage or by dispersing it and then forming it anew.Although Susanoo is quite effective as a defence, it is able to distinguish in what it blocks. For example, the user can still perform jutsu while within Susanoo and the attacks will pass through it without complications. Others can be brought within Susanoo with the user's permission, and users can likewise choose to leave Susanoo's protective envelope.

 Itachi Uchiha's Susanoo is yellow in the manga. in the anime, its skeletal and armoured forms are red and its humanoid form is orange.In its humanoid form, its face is framed by locks of hair, with an appendage on its chin reminiscent of a Pharaoh's false beard. When its armour is formed, Itachi's Susanoo resembles a long-nosed tengu and it wears a pair of magatama earrings.

Itachi's Susanoo possesses a curved blade that resembles a dagger or tantō.He rarely uses this, preferring his Sword of Tosuka, wielded in its primary right hand and sheathed in a sake jar held by its second right hand. The Sword of Totsuka is an ethereal weapon with an enchanted blade that, in addition to standard cutting, can seal anyone it pierces, trapping them in a genjutsu-like "world of drunken dreams" for all eternity. In its primary left hand, Itachi's Susanoo wields the Yata Mirror, a shield that can change its nature depending on the attack it receives, thus nullifying it.

                                                     :crown: Izanami(イザナミ) :crown:

The Izanami is one of the Uchiha clan's ultimate dōjutsu.It is a genjutsu, which affects the target through physical sensations shared between them and the user to perform the illusion.Like its counterpart, in exchange for the temporary ability that it grants the user, the Sharingan with which Izanami is cast is rendered blind and loses its light forever. According to Itachi, this technique and Izanagi form a pair, but unlike the latter, which is a technique capable of altering destiny, Izanami is instead one that "decides" it.

Itachi Activates Shisui Uchiha's Ultimate Genjutsu

Naruto: 25 Things Itachi Can Do (That Sasuke Can't)

If there’s one thing that makes Naruto stand above most other shonen anime and manga it’s the series’ fantastic and expansive pool of characters. While a lot of other shonen series tend to crumble under their own weight as they go on and introduce more and more characters, Naruto handles it’s growing cast perfectly. Every time a new character of note shows up they have a distinct design, their personality and motives are established right away, and then they get one or two cool moments before hanging around in the background as a supporting character or exiting the series. Even characters with similar abilities and motivations are given just enough distinction from one another that there isn’t too much overlap.

These subtitle but meaningful character distinctions are most notable when comparing Sasuke and Itachi Uchiha. The brothers share a lot of the same abilities, influence each other’s actions, and even have similar designs. While their general demeanors and roles in the story make them distinct from one another, their unique abilities and powers further establish the differences between these characters. As Sasuke is a bigger part of the series, there’s a lot that he can do that Itachi cannot.

However, the older brother also possesses quite a few techniques that his younger brother either doesn’t know or is unable to learn. These 25 abilities and feats that Itachi possess that Sasuke does not, really helps make the two characters feel distinct, despite how much they share and how much they influence each other.

Here are 25 Things Itachi Can Do (That Sasuke Can't).

25 The Izanami Technique

Itachi is able to use the strongest genjutsu in Naruto, thanks to his Mangekyō Sharingan. This technique traps a person in a never-ending illusion, so long as they are motivated by evil intentions. It’s implied that Sasuke might be able to utilize this technique, however, he never uses it as the cost of casting the jutsu is blindness in the eye that activates the technique.

Itachi uses this technique on Kabuto during the last arc of Naruto, both as a means to stop the ninja’s attacks and as a way to him remember his forgotten childhood and find a more productive purpose in his life.

24 Water Release Jutsu

Unlike Sasuke, Itachi is able to use water based techniques to their fullest potential. While all ninja in Naruto can use all of the elemental techniques, only those with an affinity for certain elements can use their full power.

Itachi’s affinity for water element attacks let him make techniques like the Water Dragon Bullet more powerful than if Sasuke performed the move. Itachi having a different repertoire of techniques goes a long way in making him feel distinct from his brother.

23 Control Crows

While Sasuke can summon hawks and snakes, Itachi sticks entirely with crows and frequently uses them in his techniques and schemes. His illusion techniques regularly feature him transforming into a murder of crows, he routinely controls the birds with his Sharingan, and he even manipulates the birds postmortem.

It’s a little odd that he’s so heavily tied to crows in the series since his name literally means weasel, but it’s still a cool motif for Itachi that Sasuke does not possess. Although, Sasuke is edgy enough as is and doesn’t need to transform into crows to be cool.

22 Wind Release Jutsu

Itachi is also highly proficient in wind release techniques. However, unlike water element attacks, Itachi is never seen using wide element jutsu during his appearances in the anime and manga. This differentiator is only brought up in ancillary Naruto material that lists facts about the characters.

Even if it’s not super consequential to the story, it’s a fact that Itachi can use the strongest version of wind-based techniques while Sasuke cannot. Hopefully, as various iterations of Naruto continue emerging, fans will see Itachi use a broader range of his abilities and some wind techniques.

21 The Ephemeral Technique

The Ephemeral technique is a genjutsu unique to Itachi that is as damaging as it is scary. Initiated through physical contact, this technique sent shuriken at Naruto and made him experience half of his body transforming into Sasuke. As the Sasuke illusion takes over more of Naruto’s body, he begins to berate Naruto and expose his insecurities.

This technique is nothing short of scary and, thankfully, Itachi is the only person in the series ever seen utilizing it. Sasuke doesn’t use a ton of genjutsu over the course of Naruto, and that’s one of the biggest differences between his and Itachi’s fighting style.

20 Graduate Early

Unlike Sasuke, Itachi graduated from the Hidden Leaf Village’s Ninja Academy when he was seven, which is a full five years earlier than the usual graduation age. Both Itachi and Sasuke are incredibly gifted ninja that showed amazing promise when they were young, but only Itachi had the skill and ability to become a ninja at an atypically young age.

Of course, this enhanced ability also led him to taking on some of the most morally reprehensible missions in Naruto, so maybe Sasuke didn’t miss out on all that much after all.

19 Go Without An Eye Transplant

The abilities tied to the Mangekyō Sharingan are some of the strongest in all of Naruto. However, they come with a price and overusing the Mangekyō Sharingan will leave a person completely blind. To compensate for this disadvantage, Sasuke replaced his eyes with Itachi which negated the loss of vision associated with the techniques. Itachi, however, never got an eye transplant and was instead able to ration out his usage of the Mangekyō Sharingan to stave off complete blindness.

It’s a testament to Itachi’s other skills and abilities that he was able to go years without overusing the Mangekyō Sharingan, while Sasuke needed a transplant shortly after unlocking the ocular abilities himself.

18 The Tsukuyomi Technique

The Tsukuyomi is a technique tied to Itachi’s Mangekyō Sharingan and is one of the most powerful and vicious genjutsu in the series. It places a victim in a state where seconds can drag on for hours, days, or even years. During this timespan, the subject suffers intense torture that their causes incomprehensible pain.

While a victim's physical body remains unharmed, the mental damage left by this jutsu can endure for an entire lifetime. Itachi is the only person in the series who possess this technique, and it almost guarantees him victory whenever he uses it.  

17 Make Giant Energy Shuriken

Those who possess the Mangekyō Sharingan in both sets of eyes are able to create a giant avatar called the Susanoo. This means that both Sasuke and Itachi can summon a Susanoo, however, they have their own unique attacks associated with the avatar. Itachi is uniquely able to create giant shuriken made out of chakra using his Susanoo.

Known as Yasaka Magatama, this is Itachi’s strongest long-range attack and possess a devastating amount of power. While Sasuke is able to use a smaller version of this technique in some Naruto games, Itachi is the only canonical user of this technique.   

16 Seal His Attacks In Other People

While most characters in Naruto can seal objects and techniques in scrolls, Itachi is uniquely able to seal his techniques in living creatures and program when they will activate.

For instance, he sealed his devastating Amaterasu technique inside of Sasuke’s eye, so that it would activate as soon as he saw the conniving Tobi, who Itachi knew would try to manipulate his younger brother. While Sasuke can seal and summon things like most ninja, he isn’t able to conditionally activate abilities as Itachi does at numerous points in the series.

15 Hide A Crow In Somebody’s Stomach

As a part of a plan to stop Sasuke from attacking the Hidden Leaf Village, Itachi had a crow crawl into Naruto’s mouth and wait inside of him for months. It’s not totally clear if this was an actually crow that Itachi summoned or manipulated with his Sharingan or if this crow is made out of Itachi’s chakra, but either way, this feat is as impressive as it is unsettling.

While Sasuke learned how to manipulate his own body to varying degrees from Orochimaru, he never does anything close to contorting a bird’s body so that it can live inside someone’s stomach.

14 Preserve A Human Eye For Years

That crow Itachi hid in Naruto’s stomach had the eye of his deceased friend Shisui, which held the unique ability to alter someone’s personality using genjutsu. However, Shisui gave his eye to Itachi meaning that he was able to preserve a human eye and keep it in a functioning condition for nearly a decade.

It’s unknown if Itachi kept this eye in exceptional condition solely through scientific means or if he was able to use his chakra to preserve it, but either way, it’s an impressive feat Sasuke doesn’t have the ability to replicate.

13 Maxed Out His Stats

In the official Naruto Data Books, Itachi is listed as having the highest overall stats along the various metrics used to measure ninja, with the legendary ninja Jiraiya tying his scores. While Sasuke has some pretty impressive marks himself, they fall short of Itachi’s near perfect rankings.

Although Sasuke beats his brother in the Stamina category Itachi beats him in every other category and scores a full four points higher than his younger brother across the eight metrics.  Even if Sasuke might be stronger than Itachi by the end of the series, on paper Itachi reigns supreme.

12 Have The Ultimate Defense

Itachi’s Susanoo also possesses the Yata Mirror, which has some of the strongest defensives abilities in the entire series. He can change the Yata Mirror characteristics to negate any elemental attack and block any physical blow. Sasuke’s Susanoo doesn’t really have any overly defensive techniques, making Itachi’s a more versatile avatar.

Nothing pierces the Yata Mirror during its brief appearance in the series and it’s a shame that the ethereal weapon doesn’t have more opportunities as one of the greatest defenses in Naruto, or at least make a difference in more than a single fight. 

11 Pull A Sword Out Of A Gourd

Itachi’s strongest means of attacking with his Susanoo is the Sword of Totsuka. This ethereal weapon only appears when his Susanoo pulls it out of a guard that it holds in a secondary arm. This blade doesn’t actually damage an opponent but instead seals them within the guard where they lose their sense of reason.

There’s really no way to guard against this blade and the only way to avoid losing a battle instantly is to dodge the massive attack. Although Sasuke’s Susanoo does have powerful offensive abilities, it doesn’t have anything nearly as overpowered as this mystical weapon.

10 Pass Through Barriers Undetected

Itachi is able to pass through the invisible barrier that’s usually around the Hidden Leaf Village due to his time in the village’s Anbu military organization. This makes Itachi an extremely useful member of the Akatsuki, as it lets him spy on his former home for the villainous organization more easily than any of the mostly combat focused ninja.

While Sasuke does return to the village after becoming a rogue ninja, at this point in the story the village is in disarray and likely cannot spend the manpower to generate the usual sensory barrier.  

9 Work As A Spy

While Itachi does some spy work of the Akatsuki, he is, in fact, a double agent and relays information to the Hidden Leaf Village during his entire tenure for the organization. While Sasuke does go off on dangers solo-missions for the Village during the events of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, he hasn’t ever done any espionage work.

It’s also more than likely that the extremely idealistic and self-motivated Sasuke wouldn't be able to stay undercover for the years-long span Itachi was able to. Sasuke’s a great ninja, but Itachi is a great ninja and a great spy.

8 Be A Part Of The Akatsuki For More Than A Few Weeks

Both Itachi and Sasuke were affiliated with the Akatsuki for some length of time. While Itachi worked within the organization for nearly a decade, Sasuke only managed to ally himself with the villainous organization for a few weeks.

Granted, Sasuke really didn’t have much reason to stick around with the organization for very long, but his membership is never-the-less shorter than his brother’s. It’s not clear if the Akatsuki had any kind of benefits package, but if there is Itachi definitely got more out of it than Sasuke.

7 Become A Chunin

Despite his almost unparalleled skill as a ninja, Sasuke never formally advances beyond the level of a Genin, which is the lowest possible ranking for a ninja. Itachi, on the other hand, became a Chunin when he was ten, which is earlier than when most people graduate from the Ninja Academy.

Itachi’s ability to excel within the formal systems of the Hidden Leaf Village are second to none and, even if Sasuke had stuck around longer, it’s unlikely that he could have risen through the ranks as quickly as his brother.  

6 Harm His Friends And Family

Sasuke does a lot of awful things to his friends during the course of the series. While he hurts them physically and emotionally, he never quite manages to do permanent physical harm to any of his friends or teammates. Itachi, however, is able to make himself destroy his entire clan to prevent an uprising that would have destroyed the entire Hidden Leaf Village.

The guilt of this action burdens Itachi heavily, and his only solace is knowing that he prevented an even greater massacre. Sasuke performs a lot of morally questionable act in Naruto, but not one quite as intense as Itachi betraying his clan.

5 Avoid Orochimaru’s Manipulations

During the first and much of the second half of the series, Orochimaru is obsessed with gaining control of the Sharingan. He indoctrinates Sasuke into his organization with the promise of making him strong enough to fight Itachi, when in reality Orochimaru just wants to have Sasuke under his thumb so that he can take control of the Uchiha’s body.

He tried to do the same thing years prior to Itachi, however, the older ninja was able to see through Orochimaru’s actions and cut his ties with the manipulator entirely.

4 Plan For His Own Revival

Itachi is one of the most thoughtful and future-minded characters in Naruto. This is clear when he takes steps during his life that lets him free himself from manipulation on the condition that he is brought back to life.

On the chance he was revived and controlled post-mortem, he programmed the crow hidden in Naruto’s stomach to appear upon seeing him and using the powerful eye to free himself from a summoner’s control. Sasuke is never given any reason to plan for such an eventuality and, even if he did need to, it’s unlikely that he could lay as complicated a plan as Itachi did.  

3 Show Other People His Memories

When the jutsu that revived Itachi ends and he begins to return to the afterlife, he takes a moment to show Sasuke his memories and confirm the many suspicions the younger ninja had about his older brother.

It’s not clear if it’s a specific technique that allows Itachi to show Sasuke his memories, or if it’s an affordance of returning to the afterlife, but it is clear that Sasuke isn’t able to do it. This is a shame, as there are numerous points in the series where Sasuke having the ability would have benefited him and sped up the plot.

2 Become An Anbu Captain

Sasuke easily has the ability to lead a squad of even the most elite ninja, but he left the Hidden Leaf Village before having the chance to. Itachi, though, quickly ascended ninja ranks and became one of the youngest Anbu captains in the history of the Hidden Leaf Village.

Even if Sasuke is more than qualified for the position during the events of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, his previous departure from the ninja community prevents him from holding such a high and formal role. Being a bit of a longer, he probably wouldn't want the position anyway.

1 Be A Consistently Loyal Ninja

Itachi never wavers in his loyalty to the Hidden Leaf Village and serves his home for basically his entire life. Sasuke, on the other hand, waffles between alliances for most of his teenage years. Sometimes he wants to fight for the village, other times he wants to destroy it, and for a while, he wanted to lead the ninja community.

The circumstances of Itachi’s life changed just as much as Sasuke’s, however, the older ninja always remained loyal and true to his ideals and home, no matter what the circumstances.
