Events relating to Akatsuki before the start of Part II have only been given in fragments. [[Sasori]] and [[Orochimaru]] were partners for a time and were apparently very effective. [[Kakuzu]] had a number of partners that he killed in fits of rage. For this reason he was partnered with [[Hidan]] shortly before the start of Part II, Hidan's immortality meaning there would not need to be constant replacements. [[Itachi Uchiha]] apparently joined before carrying out the [[Uchiha clan massacre]] for which he defected from [[Konohagakure]], though his membership seems to have come with the stipulation that Akatsuki could make no direct movements against Konoha. When Itachi joined, Orochimaru attempted to steal his body in order to gain the [[Sharingan]]. This failed and he was forced to defect. [[Deidara]] was recruited to replace Orochimaru as Sasori's partner, but because Orochimaru took his Akatsuki ring with him he could not also replace Orochimaru's position. Akatsuki also captured two tailed beasts before Part II, which in the anime are indicated to have been the [[Five-Tails]] and the [[Seven-Tails]].

Akatsuki becomes much more active in Part II, with Deidara and Sasori making their move to capture [[Gaara]] for the [[One-Tail]]. Though they succeed in the extraction, Sasori is killed. Taking advantage of the open membership, having created the identity of Tobi to pose an Akatsuki flunky, Obito replaces Sasori to oversee the group's affairs. Another tailed beast is acquired in between the captures of the [[One-Tail]], and the [[Two-Tails]], but is unknown which beast.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 256</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 331</ref> Next are the [[Two-Tails]] and [[Three-Tails]], though Hidan and Kakuzu are lost during an unrelated scuffle with Konoha ninja. After obtaining the [[Four-Tails]], Deidara dies during his fight with [[Sasuke Uchiha]] with Tobi managing to convince Sasuke to work with Akatsuki after Itachi's death. Although five Akatsuki members are lost, Tobi claiming their sacrifices were worth winning Sasuke's loyalty, the organization takes more drastic measures to make up for diminished numbers.

In the anime, Nagato goes to capture the [[Six-Tails]] (the beast having been caught at some earlier point in the manga). He and [[Konan]] are then sent to Konoha to capture the [[Nine-Tails]]. Konoha is destroyed, but they fail in their assignment; Nagato dying and Konan leaving the organization. At the same time, Sasuke and his team are tasked with capturing the [[Eight-Tails]], but they too fail to complete their assignment. Akatsuki's actions finally provoke a response from the ninja villages, who hold a [[Kage Summit]] to discuss what should be done. Tobi, wishing to accelerate his machinations, infiltrates the meeting and declares war against the Five Great Shinobi Countries and the Land of Iron, promising to use the seven tailed beasts Akatsuki has already captured as weapons. The villages and their associated countries form the [[Allied Shinobi Forces]] to combat Akatsuki, beginning the [[Fourth Shinobi World War]].
