Eighty years prior to the start of the series, Izuna and his older brother Madara were said to be equals as the most gifted members of the Uchiha clan. They usually competed with each other every day in order to get stronger. Both awakened their [[Sharingan]] early in life, and they became the first Uchiha to awaken the [[Mangekyō Sharingan]]. Madara used the power of his Mangekyō Sharingan to take control of the clan, with Izuna at his side.

Before the era of ninja villages, Izuna was one of five brothers born to [[Tajima Uchiha]]. However, three of his brothers died at the hands of the [[Senju]], leaving Izuna and his older brother [[Madara]]. Alongside Madara, Izuna was considered one of the most gifted members of the Uchiha. Izuna often competed with Madara as training.<ref name="Naruto chapter 386, page 5">''Naruto'' chapter 386, page 5</ref> As a child growing up during the [[Warring States Period|war-torn era]], Izuna once accompanied his father on a mission to kill [[Hashirama Senju]], whom Madara albeit unknowingly had been meeting. Once there, Izuna and his father were confronted by [[Butsuma]] and [[Tobirama Senju]], the latter of whom he acknowledged by name.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 622, pages 16-17</ref>

As Izuna clashed with Tobirama, unbeknownst to him, Butsuma had launched an attack at him, hoping to strike him down and gain an advantage at defeating the evenly-matched Tajima. This attack, however, was deflected by his brother Madara who had intervened between the two sides along with Hashirama. Izuna later showed shock when Madara noted that Hashirama was stronger than he was, but was later elated to see that his brother had awakened his [[Sharingan]].<ref name="chpt624">''Naruto'' chapter 624</ref>

As the battles between the two clans raged on, Izuna awakened his own Sharingan and became one of the first two Uchiha to awaken the [[Mangekyō Sharingan]]. With their newly obtained power, the two brothers became the heads of the clan, with Madara becoming its leader. During a battle between Hashirama and Tobirama however, Izuna was mortally wounded by Tobirama's [[Flying Thunder God Slash|technique]]. With Madara quickly rushing to Izuna's aid, Hashirama pleaded with Madara to come to peaceful terms.

Because of the Sharingan's ability to see past any attempt to blind the user, Izuna felt pity for those who did not possess one. He also seemed to prefer the element of surprise when using his Sharingan, keeping it deactivated it until he could look into his opponent's eyes. In the event they close their eyes fast enough, they would be rendered blind and unable to react to his next attacks.

Izuna Uchiha (うちはイズナ, Uchiha Izuna) was a shinobi of the Uchiha clan. He along with his brother: Madara Uchiha, were renowned as the clan's two strongest members.

Background Edit

Senju and Uchiha fights

Izuna and his father clashing with Tobirama and Butsuma Senju.

Before the era of ninja villages, Izuna was one of five brothers born to Tajima Uchiha. However, three of his brothers died at the hands of the Senju, leaving Izuna and his older brother Madara. Alongside Madara, Izuna was considered one of the most gifted members of the Uchiha. Izuna often competed with Madara as training.[2] As a child growing up during the war-torn era, Izuna once accompanied his father on a mission to kill Hashirama Senju, whom Madara — albeit unknowingly — had been meeting. Once there, Izuna and his father were confronted by Butsuma and Tobirama Senju, the latter of whom he acknowledged by name.[3]

As Izuna clashed with Tobirama, unbeknownst to him, Butsuma had launched an attack at him, hoping to strike him down and gain an advantage at defeating the evenly-matched Tajima. This attack, however, was deflected by his brother Madara who had intervened between the two sides along with Hashirama. Izuna later showed shock when Madara noted that Hashirama was stronger than he was, but was later elated to see that his brother had awakened his Sharingan.[4]

As the battles between the two clans raged on, Izuna awakened his own Sharingan and became one of the first two Uchiha to awaken the Mangekyō Sharingan. With their newly obtained power, the two brothers became the heads of the clan, with Madara becoming its leader. During a battle between Hashirama and Tobirama however, Izuna was mortally wounded by Tobirama's technique. With Madara quickly rushing to Izuna's aid, Hashirama pleaded with Madara to come to peaceful terms. Seeing his brother begin to consider this offer, Izuna told his brother not to listen to their lies, ultimately making Madara retreat with Izuna.[4]

The dead body of Izuna Uchiha

When Madara later returned to the battlefield, he revealed that the injury inflicted on Izuna was fatal.[4] According to Obito Uchiha years later, the dying Izuna had given Madara his eyes so his brother could obtain the Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan to protect their clan from its growing number of enemies and the Senju.[5] Because of the blindness caused by overuse of a Mangekyō Sharingan, many people came to believe that Madara took Izuna's eyes by force to regain his sight.[6]

Personality Edit

Izuna Uchiha was a harmonic and devoted person.[1] He also appeared to be very competitive with his brother, Madara, in terms of skill as they would often spar with one another in an attempt to hone these skills. Izuna looked up to Madara greatly and was even in disbelief when as children, Madara admitted to being weaker than Hashirama.[7] Likewise, Izuna was elated when Madara awakened his Sharingan shortly after.[8] As he grew older, Izuna's love for his clan grew and he fought fiercely to protect it. He soon came to share his clan's opinion regarding the Senju clan, even asking Madara, while severely wounded, not to fall for Hashirama's "false" truce proposals.[9] He looked up to his older brother and was so close to Madara that he even gave him his eyes as a dying gift as a means of ensuring that Madara will be able to better protect the clan's future.[10]

Because of the Sharingan's ability to see past any attempt to blind the user, Izuna felt pity for those who did not possess one. He also seemed to prefer the element of surprise when using his Sharingan, keeping it deactivated it until he could look into his opponent's eyes. In the event they close their eyes fast enough, they would be rendered blind and unable to react to his next attacks.

Mangekyō Sharingan Izuna

Izuna's Mangekyō Sharingan pattern.

Izuna awakened and mastered his Sharingan at a very young age, around the same time as Madara. His prowess was formidable enough to make a composed man like Tobirama look away in fear of its effects, letting his guard down for Izuna to freely strike him. His enhanced visuals allowed Izuna to reduce any unnecessary movements when being attacked. When Izuna awakened the Mangekyō Sharingan, its design had three straight bars stretching out of his enlarged pupil.

While posing as Madara, Obito Uchiha claimed that Izuna's death after giving Madara his eyes played a great role in Madara's antagonism towards the Senju clan when they proposed a truce. Madara would have thought Izuna's sacrifice to keep him strong and protect the clan as being in vain. Izuna's eyes continued to be of great importance, first, by granting Madara the Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan, and in his old age, Madara would also awaken the Rinnegan with Izuna's eyes.

Upon both Madara and Tobirama returning to the world of living, Madara expressed his grudge against the Second Hokage for killing his beloved brother, and relished in making him suffer in revenge despite being focused on proceeding with the Eye of the Moon Plan.
