Madara Uchiha (Japanese: うちは マダラ, Hepburn: Uchiha Madara) is a fictional manga and anime character in the Naruto series created by Masashi Kishimoto. He appears for the first time in “Part II” of the manga and the Shippuden anime adaptation, as a background character. He, along with its first leader Hashirama Senju, is one of the co-founders of Konohagakure (Japanese: 木ノ葉隠れの里, Hepburn: Konohagakure no Sato) village from the ninja world . Their power conflict over how to run the village, as well as the long-term feud between clans, leads to Madara’s death. However, it is revealed later that Madara had used a man named Obito Uchiha as his agent. He transplants his Rinnegan (輪廻眼, lit. “Saṃsāra Eye”) eye power into a child named Nagato, the public leader of the terrorist organization Akatsuki, to be preserved for his eventual revival years later. During most of the series, Obito uses Madara’s name until a criminal named Kabuto Yakushi reanimates the real Madara who becomes one of the primary antagonists alongside Obito Uchiha during the Fourth Great Shinobi World War storyline. Madara has appeared in several pieces of Naruto media, including a Boruto feature film. Many Naruto video games have featured him as a playable character.
