Kagami Uchiha (うちはカガミ, Uchiha Kagami) was a shinobi from Konohagakure's Uchiha clan who along with his team-mates Torifu Akimichi, and Danzō Shimura were direct subordinates of the Second Hokage: Tobirama Senju.
During the First Shinobi World War, he and his team-mates Danzō, and Torifu went on a mission with Team Tobirama. Pursued and ultimately surrounded by Kumogakure's Kinkaku Squad, the group discussed their options, where Kagami noted that Koharu's plan of an ambush wouldn't work and that instead a diversion was needed to lure the enemy away. He then listened as the Second, who had nominated himself as the decoy, appoint Hiruzen as the Third Hokage. Not much is known about Kagami's life after this, except for the fact he fathered a son who also inherited his devotion to the village.
He is assumed to have died at a later point, some time either before, or during the Uchiha clan massacre.
Along with a strong devotion towards his own clan, Kagami was noted to be greatly dedicated to the protection of Konohagakure, having accomplished much for the sake of the village, traits that would be passed onto his son Shisui. His sense of loyalty was so great, he never fell victim to his clan's Curse of Hatred, something that normally had a high probability of happening after awakening the Sharingan. For this reason, he was one of the few Uchiha that Tobirama believed in as well as one of the six people Tobirama chose to work directly under him.
Kagami had short, black, unkempt hair. During the First Shinobi World War, he wore the standard Konoha outfit of the time which consisted of a black suit with armour over it, forehead protector, sandals and a pouch strapped to his waist. At other times, his attire was that typical to the Uchiha clan and included a high-collared, dark-coloured shirt.
As an Uchiha, Kagami was one of the members that were able to awaken his clan's kekkei genkai: the Sharingan, which granted him various advantageous abilities. These included seeing the flow of chakra, the ability to easily recognise genjutsu and different forms of chakra, some predictive capabilities, as well as the ability to copy techniques that the user sees amongst other things.
- Kagami means mirror (鏡) which are heavily associated with Uchiha. For example, mangekyō (万華鏡, kaleidoscope) in Mangekyō Sharingan literally means mirror of ten thousand flowers and one of the sacred weapons of Itachi Uchiha's Susanoo is the Yata Mirror.
- Kagami was one of the several people guessed to be Tobi's true identity, although it was a less popular theory than Obito Uchiha being Tobi. This theory was possibly due to the physical appearance of Kagami, including his hair, Sharingan, and other attributes.
