Madara Uchiha (うちはマダラ, Uchiha Madara) was a legendary leader of the Uchiha clan. He founded Konohagakure alongside his rival, Hashirama Senju. He is one of the antagonists from Masashi Kishioto's Naruto manga and one of the antagonists from ND2014's Five Worlds War series.
History (Naruto manga)Edit
Madara was born during the Warring States Period and was the eldest of Tajima Uchiha's five sons. Madara and his brothers grew up on the battlefield waging constant war with the Uchiha's rivals: the Senju. Three of his brothers died young, leaving Madara with only his younger brother, Izuna. Madara and Izuna became very close through their shared loss and constantly competed with each other to get stronger. This, combined with his naturally strong chakra, enabled the young Madara to defeat adult Senju in battle and develop a reputation as a genius.At some point in his childhood he met another boy his age Hashima Senju. The two quickly developed a friendly rivalry. Like Madara, Hashirama was also a shinobi who had lost his brothers on the battlefield. Together they imagined a world where children like themselves wouldn't need to fight.
At some point their parents found about their meetings and it was then that they discovered they were from enemy clans. Though Madara was reluctant, he decided to end their friendship and that awakened his Sharingan.
The two over the following years would continue meet each other on the battlefield. Madara could never defeat Hashirama — even after acquiring a Mangekyō Sharingan — and Hashirama could never bring himself to kill someone he still considered a friend, resulting in a constant stalemate between the two that lasted decades.
At one point they became respective leaders of their clans. Hashrima tried negotiate peace between the clans, but Madara, due to the death of his little brother Izuna Uchiha at the hands Tobirama Senju, refused. However some Uchiha found the offer appealing and defected over to the Senju clan out of self-preservation.
Madara then used Izuna's eyes in order to gain "eternal" Mangekyō Sharingan and restore his deteriorating vision. With this new power he waged one final assault against the Senju and was summarily defeated. Rather than kill Madara to bring the era of war to an end, Hashirama offered to kill himself if it would stop the fighting. Madara was moved by Hashirama's gesture and finally assented to peace.
The two clans came together and founded the Hidden Leaf Village. (A name that Madara came up with) Madara and Hashrima rekindled their friendship.
