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.

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

Izuna and his father
Izuna and his father arrive to battle the 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 him and his older brother Madara. Alongside Madara, Izuna was considered 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. As Hashirama pleaded with Madara to come to peaceful terms, Izuna told his brother not to listen to their lies.[4]

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]

Appearance Edit

Izuna was a fair-skinned man with full lips and spiky, black hair that had a blue tint to it and was tied in a ponytail. His bangs parted down the centre of his face to frame both sides of it, He wore the standard Uchiha outfit which consisted of a high-collared, blue shirt with the Uchiha crest on his upper back and blue pants which were wrapped up in bandages at the ends. On his waist, he had a bandage belt that held a sack which presumably held ninja tools. As a child, his ponytail was absent, and his hair was spiky in the back, and he wore the standard high-collared robes worn by other Uchiha of the Era of the Warring States with the Uchiha crest on the back, with an armoured chest plate. According to Hashirama Senju, Izuna bore striking resemblance to one of his clansmen, Sasuke.

Abilities Edit

Madara & Izuna Uchiha
Izuna and Madara with their Mangekyō Sharingan activated.

Izuna was noted to be equal to his elder brother, Madara, in every way. Both of them had exceptionally strong chakra, even for Uchiha members, and trained daily to hone their skills.[11] Like his brother, Izuna was prodigiously talented, even by the battle-adept Uchiha clan's standards. Izuna mastered his Sharingan at a very young age, alongside Madara.

When Izuna awakened the Mangekyō Sharingan, his eyes took the appearance of three bars stretching out of his pupil. According to Madara, a Mangekyō Sharingan with a symmetrical shape to it, known as the "Straight Tomoe" (直巴, Choku Tomoe), grants the user a higher capability of reading and predicting his opponents movements as well as able to fluidly act accordingly to it.[12] Izuna's Mangekyō shape strongly suggests Izuna had this trait. When Madara took his eyes, the two Mangekyō shapes combined.

He was also skilled in kenjutsu and was able to fight on par against a young Tobirama Senju.[4]

Legacy Edit

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. The same eyes were later transplanted into Nagato, who would later go on to become Pain, and a powerful figure-head of Akatsuki, and then into Obito Uchiha, who came to share Madara's ideals, and while posing as him, plunged the world into the Fourth Shinobi World War. 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. Hashirama noted that Sasuke Uchiha reminded him of Izuna, and believed that Sasuke is the sole person capable of saving Madara from his path of vengeance and hatred.
