The {{translation|'''Curse of Hatred'''|憎しみの呪い|Nikushimi no Noroi}}, is an [[Nindō|ideal]] of enmity that was said to have been passed down throughout the generations by the [[Uchiha clan]]'s [[Uchiha Clan Ancestor|forefather]] to the members of his lineage. The origins of this curse can be traced back to when a dying [[Sage of the Six Paths]] took the fateful decision to name his [[Senju Clan Ancestor|younger son]], who would go on to become the forefather of the [[Senju clan]], his successor instead of the older sibling because the Sage believed that the beliefs held by the younger son were the key to peace. Consumed with hatred, the elder brother eventually waged war against his brother and thus began a cycle of hatred that transcended history, culminating in the mutual hostility between the Uchiha and Senju.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 462, pages 11-13</ref>

As [[Tobirama Senju]] revealed, the Uchiha treasured love and friendship even more than their own clan, yet it was their ultimate downfall. Because this is a part of them they regularly conceal, an Uchiha's love turns into hatred the moment they lose the ones they hold dear. This despair-filled experience would cause a manifestation of special chakra within the Uchiha's brain, affecting the optic nerves and creating the [[Sharingan]], "the eye that reflects feelings". Even the ways for Sharingan to evolve further into [[Mangekyō Sharingan]] and [[Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan]] require an extremely painful experience that would drive the user into even deeper darkness that would utterly consume them.<ref>''Naruto'', chapter 619, pages 13-17</ref> Such a ninja at the time was [[Madara Uchiha]], who refused to relinquish his hatred after being forced to take his [[Izuna Uchiha|beloved brother]]'s eyes to obtain the Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan prior to Konoha's founding. Uneasy of how long the Uchiha's standing in the village would last once Tobirama Senju became Hokage, Madara sowed the seeds of contempt among his kin with the promise that they would eventually lose standing in their partnership with the Senju if they did not help him.

The Curse of Hatred was first displayed by the Uchiha's ancestor, [[Indra Ōtsutsuki]]. When Indra's father, the [[Sage of the Six Paths]], was on his deathbed, he was left to choose which of his two sons would carry on his legacy. Indra believed peace could be achieved through power, while his younger brother, [[Asura Ōtsutsuki]], believed peace could be achieved through love. The Sage ultimately selected Asura.<ref>Chapter 462, pages 11-13</ref> Indra was overwhelmed with anger for being passed over and, once tempted by [[Black Zetsu]], waged war against Asura to claim what he believed was his birthright.<ref>Chapter 681, page 13</ref> Their battle would pass through the generations, continued by their descendants: Indra's Uchiha clan and Asura's [[Senju clan]].
   
As an Uchiha is plunged deeper into the darkness, even the slightest hint or mention of anything even remotely connected to the person whose death caused them to end up like this will cause them to become extremely angry as seen in Madara and Sasuke's case. Also, the Uchiha can't be reasoned with anyone except the person who caused them to be like this, if the person can be [[Impure World Reincarnation|reincarnated]]. Only that person has any chance of saving the Uchiha from the curse as seen in Sasuke's case.
+
The Uchiha's Curse of Hatred can be considered a counterpart to the Senju's [[Will of Fire]]. Whereas the Will of Fire encourages a selfless approach to life, sacrificing oneself for the betterment of the many, specifically one's village, the Curse of Hatred typically sees Uchiha displaying self-interested tendencies, sacrificing the many for the betterment of the few, specifically the clan or an Uchiha's close intimates. The events leading up to the [[Uchiha Clan Downfall]] can be considered the ultimate display of the clash between these two ideals: the Uchiha, feeling mistreated by the Senju-influenced government of [[Konohagakure]], planned to perform a coup d'etat to take control of Konoha, paying little mind to the fact that this in the short term would start another ninja world war and would likely see the complete eradication of the Uchiha. Although the [[Third Hokage]] attempted to negotiate and spare the Uchiha, [[Danzō Shimura]] reasoned that peace was no longer an option and secretly arranged for the clan's massacre.
   
Though Madara was exiled by his clan soon after, a few Uchiha would begin to believe his warning generations later, yet they were no longer in a position of power to do anything about it due to Tobirama's attempt to thwart the curse by placing the Uchiha in the [[Konoha Military Police Force]] to regulate their emotions. The Uchiha's curse was fully rekindled later as the result of [[Obito Uchiha]] witnessing the death of [[Rin Nohara]], in turn causing the [[Nine-Tails' Attack on Konoha]] which resulted in the Uchiha plotting to take over Konoha after being unjustly accused for the event. This led to the [[Uchiha Clan Massacre]] executed by [[Itachi Uchiha]], with [[Sasuke Uchiha]]'s quest for avenging his family resorting in becoming what Obito noted as the sole inheritor of the Uchiha Clan's hatred and thus fated to clash against [[Naruto Uzumaki]], who has inherited the Senju's [[Will of Fire]].<ref> ''Naruto'' chapter 462, pages 15-17</ref> However, questioning his resolve, Sasuke has [[Orochimaru]] reincarnate the Hokage and learns the full nature of the Curse of Hatred from Tobirama.

Although many Uchiha do display the Curse of Hatred at some point in their lives, some are able to transcend their clan's usual narrow-mindedness; [[Kagami Uchiha]], Kagami's descendant [[Shisui]], and Shisui's best friend [[Itachi]] all live by the Will of Fire instead.<ref>Chapter 627, pages 3-5</ref> [[Obito Uchiha]] initially displayed characteristics of the Will of Fire, but he was corrupted by [[Madara Uchiha]] to live by the Curse of Hatred.

The Founding Uchiha

A number of Uchiha with the Sharingan, a by-product of the Curse of Hatred.

The Curse of Hatred (憎しみの呪い, Nikushimi no Noroi) was an ideal common to members of the Uchiha clan. According to Tobirama Senju, the Uchiha are people greatly devoted to love and friendship, yet they tend to conceal their more affectionate traits. When the object of their affection is lost, an Uchiha's love can instantaneously turn into hatred, leaving them more inclined to do anything and everything in their power to achieve their goals and show their own superiority, regardless of the consequences and repercussions of their actions. The despair of these experiences cause a manifestation of unique chakra within an Uchiha's brain, impacting the optic nerves and creating the Sharingan. The Sharingan's advanced form also requires extremely painful experiences, which cause the user to delve into darkness that utterly consumes them.[1]

Asura vs Indra

The beginning of the Curse of Hatred.

The Curse of Hatred was first displayed by the Uchiha's ancestor, Indra Ōtsutsuki. When Indra's father, the Sage of the Six Paths, was on his deathbed, he was left to choose which of his two sons would carry on his legacy. Indra believed peace could be achieved through power, while his younger brother, Asura Ōtsutsuki, believed peace could be achieved through love. The Sage ultimately selected Asura.[2] Indra was overwhelmed with anger for being passed over and, once tempted by Black Zetsu, waged war against Asura to claim what he believed was his birthright.[3] Their battle would pass through the generations, continued by their descendants: Indra's Uchiha clan and Asura's Senju clan.

The Uchiha's Curse of Hatred can be considered a counterpart to the Senju's Will of Fire. Whereas the Will of Fire encourages a selfless approach to life, sacrificing oneself for the betterment of the many, specifically one's village, the Curse of Hatred typically sees Uchiha displaying self-interested tendencies, sacrificing the many for the betterment of the few, specifically the clan or an Uchiha's close intimates. The events leading up to the Uchiha Clan Downfall can be considered the ultimate display of the clash between these two ideals: the Uchiha, feeling mistreated by the Senju-influenced government of Konohagakure, planned to perform a coup d'etat to take control of Konoha, paying little mind to the fact that this in the short term would start another ninja world war and would likely see the complete eradication of the Uchiha. Although the Third Hokage attempted to negotiate and spare the Uchiha, Danzō Shimura reasoned that peace was no longer an option and secretly arranged for the clan's massacre.

Although many Uchiha do display the Curse of Hatred at some point in their lives, some are able to transcend their clan's usual narrow-mindedness; Kagami Uchiha, Kagami's descendant Shisui, and Shisui's best friend Itachi all live by the Will of Fire instead.[4] Obito Uchiha initially displayed characteristics of the Will of Fire, but he was corrupted by Madara Uchiha to live by the Curse of Hatred. Kakashi Hatake theorised that Obito never lost his Will of Fire despite falling to hatred, and the inner conflict between the ideals prevented Obito from fully committing to and acting on the Eye of the Moon Plan when he had the chance.

Friends Part

The Curse of Hatred comes to an end.

Individual Uchiha can also be released from the Curse of Hatred by those who are close to them, though this is incredibly difficult as the Uchiha becomes largely unreasonable and unflinching in their singular desire. After several years of failed negotiations, Hashirama Senju was able to draw his best friend, Madara Uchiha, away from the Curse of Hatred and channel his energies into their newly-formed Konoha. This was only a temporary success as Madara eventually returned to his former ways, but finally acknowledged that Hashirama was right before his death in the Fourth Shinobi World War.

Sasuke, the sole survivor of the clan's downfall and Indra's latest reincarnation, initially bore the entire clan's hatred upon himself in his desire to avenge them. Despite predictions that their respective embodiments of the Will of Fire and Curse of Hatred would cause them to destroy each other, Naruto Uzumaki, Asura's reincarnation, was able to redeem his best friend.[5] As Sasuke was, at that time, the only surviving Uchiha, the Curse of Hatred was effectively eradicated.
