History:
The young Uchiha Itachi was a skilled prodigy of Leaf Village. He graduated the Ninja Academy at age 7 and passed the Chuunin Exam at age 10. By age 13 Itachi had become a captain in the special ANBU squad. Itachi began to grow dissatisfied with his clan, feeling they were not using their gifts to their fullest extent. To test his potential he murdered his best friend Shisui. Doing so granted him the ability to use the Mangekyou Sharingan, a rare Sharingan form seen only in a few select clan members. To gain this form Itachi believed you had to kill your closest friend.

After murdering Shisui, Itachi turned against his clan. Itachi felt that Sasuke could also gain the Mangekyou, and felt that murdering the clan would drive Sasuke to his absolute limits, to one day gain the Mangekyou as well.

After wiping out his clan, Itachi fled Leaf and joined the Akatsuki Organization. Several years after leaving, Itachi returned with fellow member Hoshigaki Kisame. It was during this period it was revealed Akatsuki was seeking to obtain the Kyuubi demon from inside Naruto for their own ends. The two men began to do battle with Hidden Leaf ninja but when they began to be outnumbered, they fled.

A short time afterwards, Sasuke learned that Itachi had returned to the village. So he took off after Akatsuki's target, Naruto. Itachi and Kisame began to track and follow Naruto and Jiraiya who had left Leaf Village to find the Sannin Tsunade. While Naruto and Jiraiya had stopped to rest at a hotel, Itachi surprised and confronted Naruto. It was then Sasuke finally caught up and faced his brother for the first time in years.

Itachi easily defended himself against Sasuke and then forced him to relive the moment of his parents murder over and over again. Surprised that Sasuke had still been able to gain much power, Itachi dismissed his little brotherís growth. Jiraiya arrived and upon seeing that the situation was turning more dangerous, Kisame and Itachi decided to flee.

Over the next few years the duo would continue to help Akatsuki accomplish their goals. When members Deidara and Sasori captured Gaara, Kisame and Itachi volunteered to help delay the ninja who had been trailing them. Itachi once again had the opportunity to fight both Kakashi and Naruto. The two Leaf ninja appeared to get the better of Itachi, but it was revealed to merely be a host sacrificial body. Itachi himself was miles away acting through the sacrifice in exchange for some small measure of his chakra.

Their delay plan worked, and the group managed to extract Shukaku from Gaara before they could be stopped. Itachi and the group then took their leave. Itachi would continue to help Akatsuki and await the day when his younger brother would finally be powerful enough to live up to Itachi's high standards.

I hate Itachi. He has yet to win a fight yet you people proclaim him to be some god. So what, he can call forth the powers of Deus ex Machina with his magical eyeballs, big whoop. Overrated and should only be a plot device.

I think we all know that Itachi isn't very strong. I mean Kisame whooped Team Gai's ass pretty good...Itachi cast some genjutsu on a Genin before being rasengan'd. PFFFT. ;)

In all seriousness Itachi is obscenely powerful, just not as powerful as people seem to think he is. The reasons for him slaughtering his clan and his actual feelings towards Sasuke make him a very interesting character, if a little annoying (so...just like Sasuke then!).

However he really does need to be punched by Jiraiya in the face. Man that would be awesome.

So someone who massacres their entire clan at 13 and outmanuevers and nearly kills Hatake Kakashi without a sweat is weak? Yeah...okay.

I fail to see how his eyes are a kind of Deus Ex Machinae. A Deus Ex Machina is the act of introducing a character, event or device (often making no sense compared to the original story) to explain a plot or end a story quickly. For example the Wizard of Oz.

The Mangekyou is pretty important in the plot and the eyes themselves are hardly without their dangers (Itachi's vision is detiorating quickly afterall).

Kakashi's Mangekyou does seem to be a bit of Deus Ex however, being able to stop Deidara quickly and transport his boom-clone away.

Some people have gotten the wrong idea about how strong he is I agree. But the fact is he has reached the power of a hokage and he is still in his prime. Also I like him because he had a gift and he has developed it to its fullest.

Prove it.

Sasuke didn't have to do much to get his final sharingan form. Just get really pissed off and do some figuring in his mind. He did practice much that we ever saw.

And we never saw Itachi practice anything. Just kill his clan members, most of which didn't fight back at all.

I mean, to be completely honest, and I don't mean to offend people or saw anything offensive, but come on, if you went to a family reunion, and started to kill your whole family, it would be easy. No one would try to fight back, and if they did they would never put their heart in it. Who would ever want to fight back and kill their family member? I sure wouldn't.

Plus, he's a whiny little baby fool, who needs to get his ass beat hard by Rock Lee.

Man, what an undeserving powerful guy. So overrated and over-loved....I hate him.

I think Itachi is a good villain and he's one of my fav villains. I like that he's not really crazy though I hope there's more to his motive for killing his clan/joining Akatsuki than testing his power.
If he really wanted to test his power, did he have to go head to head with an Akatsuki member before joining? And I was thinking how if Itachi uses his mangekyou sharingan too often, he'll go blind in both eyes, but Kakashi will be blind in only one eye.

Itachi...

It's still a mistery what it's the motivation current deeds, what keeps him following orders in the Akatsuki, etc... I mean, it's not like he can't be on his own (like Orochimaru).

If it's the search for power what guides him, then fusing himself with a bijuu (the current Akatsuki goal) is just his current goal. Afterwards he'll probably dicht the group and will go on to the next step to get more power.

Some speculation threads among other forums say that Itachi is playing the villian in order to attain something to defeat an ultimate evil, meaning he is an anti-hero and that all he does to Sasuke it's to prepare him for a great battle to come.... but that would only be mean a -1 to the villian ranks of the Narutoverse and IMO it's not a good thing.

Anyway, his mankgekyo sharingan is enough proof of his genius regardless the age he got his ranks. Once it is performed it's all over. You can count with the fingers of your hand the people who have survived to tell about it (that we know so far).

First off, guys, this is an Appreciation topic, so instead of saying how much you hate him, its how much you like him, I don't know if that was clear for you. If you don't like him, don't post, itís that easy. If you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all. I'm surprised your parents didn't teach you that.

Itachi is my favorite character, by far. Many of you say that he uses the Mangekyou too much and I agree, but I say he's using basic human nature. Humans find something powerful and use it. Do you see your nationís military running around with wooden clubs and throwing rocks? I didn't think so, their using guns. I think Kishimoto should show more of Itachi's moves show us why he was a prodigy. Which is why my favorite chapter is when he uses Goukakyuu (at 30%) and the episode when he beats up Sasuke with punches and kicks, and finishes it up with Tsukuyomi (Its what Sasuke deserved). Itachi is far from the most powerful character. Deidara even states it in the fight with Kakashi, so I guess he isn't a god after all. I like Itachi because his attitude in a battle, I like the no emotion no care mood, its what I kind of want. I like his attacks; I can't find the words but thereís something about Itachi which makes him my favorite character. Maybe itís the mystery behind him, why did he kill his clan? Stuff like that.

The Mangekyou might be the most powerful doujutsu but at the same time its the worst; it drains chakra like no tomorrow. Itís why Itachi retreats, he gets low on chakra and retreats, and you would too. I'm a fan of the Sharingan, predicting movements, copying jutsus, and seeing through genjutsus is just so cool to me and that thereís an improved version of it, makes it better. I don't think it takes away from being a true ninja. The Mangekyou has 2 powerful jutsu and I can't wait to see the third, if there is one.

Itachi will die sooner or later; hopefully he will be the last or one of the lasts. He plays a huge part in the series, but face it, he'll go out with a bang and go down in Naruto history as one of the best villains.

Puffycow how is Itachi whiny? Show it to me, where is he whiny? He barely changes the tone in his voice. Sasuke is more whiny then Itachi by far.

Darkstar, you must be thrilled to bits! Itachi finally getting his own thread. We have not shown Itachi's true strength yet. Remember when he fought Naruto he used 70% of his chakra if he used all of it, it would of made a huge difference!

Try not to turn this into a vs thread Darkstar, but I will agree with you that Sasuke is more whinier than Itachi.

I'm pretty sure that was only thirty percent of his chakra. That was his clone too.

I'm started to get interested in Itachi, but he is really overrated by some. He has too many fans and too many people like him. Orochimaru may have said that Itachi was stronger than him, but that doesn't mean that he really is stronger than him. Otherwise, Itachi isn't such as bad character. But everyone else in Akatsuki is better than him in my opinion.

Yeah, I do too think it was 30 percent of his chakra that was put on to his dopleganger... which is impresive anyway.

I guess all that praising for Kisame's chakra tends to distract us all (er, yeah right, must probably be just me.)
