Okay peoples this question has been bugging me a lot lately. I can't decide if Itachi is evil or not. I know he killed the Uchiha clan wich is evil, but I heard the village elders told him to. So I'm quite confused. What do you guyes think evil or not?

I think that

he is someone

who wants to be

good, but things just

never worked out in his

favor. Spoiler Time!



Itachi didn't want to kill

his entire clan, but I guess

that some people could argue that

he was given a choice. But the choice

was a very hard one. Itachi was a pacifist

because he witnessed war at a very young age.

No one should have to go through something like

that when they are this young. It might have even distorted

his mind. But probably not. he feared that if he didn't kill the clan,

they might actually rise up and start a civil war. After that, other countries,

greedy for the land, money, and power, would storm in. This could easily start

another shinobi war. That was the absolute last thing that Itachi wanted to do. if

i were put in his place and given those conditions, I myself wouldn't be able to kill so

many from my own family. I would probably flee the country, knowing that I would

become a rouge ninja one way or another. But if I had experienced what Itachi

had, I would have probably killed the clan. I would have feared a war that

may be to come.

He's not evil what so ever. It was the elders and Danzo that made him kill his clan. He didn't want to, and he couldn't even kill his brother.

foxboy
05-28-2009, 06:52 PM
you guys itachi only killed the uchiha clan because they were going to betray the leaf village and the third hokage gave itachi the mission and itachi didn't kill sasuke because he was too young to even know about it. :ugeek:

if you would like to know more join my village the hidden village of chibi
We will rule the world because of our superiour intelligence

Have you heard the terms Neutral, or Chaotic Good? He is willing to go to any extreme to perform the acts of 'Good' as he sees them, or is ordered to perform them. That's just how he is.

Itachi-Sama
05-29-2009, 03:20 AM
As others have posted before me, Itachi is both good and bad. He is good, because he followed orders given to him that as a ninja... no matter how much he felt terrible about his clan, he was always a peace lover; hating war and violence. He is bad, because his view on his path in life of happiness -just like Madara- may seem the complete opposite for someone else, such as Sakura.

waterlemon-chi
05-29-2009, 05:01 AM
I believe he's good in his own way. We have different beliefs, but he's more of a kind person than a bad one...

Itachi has no single drop of evil in him. All he did was protect his brother(which was a stupid thing to do because his own brother killed him later on in the story) and he was given a choice. Either let another war happen which is going to kill like everyone or have only a clan get killed ehich doesn't kill that much. So Itachi chose to kill his clan. Also he was teaching his brother to get stronger and stronger. But in the end, Itachi got killed.

And he ALSO
was spying on the Akatsuki from the inside.

He is a good person

zerosameri

i say no because, he did all the things he did for the good of his brother sasuke. he let sasuke kill him so he can be forgiven.

danboy
05-30-2009, 03:36 AM
although that maybe good intentions forced upon another is still evil well Itachi only did one evil thing which was made Sasuke the person he is sad angry & weak

Sasuke could never beat Itachi if he was truly evil Itachi took a dive

itachi/madara

Sasuke could never beat Itachi if he was truly evil Itachi took a dive
true
the only reason sasuke wan was because itachi was already hurt before they foght

05-30-2009, 03:58 AM
Itachi is NOT evil. hes just misunderstood. plus he is a loyal ninja who simply followed orders and his instincts

the only reason sasuke wan was because itachi was already hurt before they foght

Plus I don't think Itachi really wanted to kill Sasuke I think he wanted to die by Sasukes hands because he couldn't take the guilt of killing his clan even if they were traitors

kakashi842
05-30-2009, 04:45 AM
no he is protecting sasuke

Ryaque
05-30-2009, 07:40 AM
Wow everyone. I never knew so much about Itachi just now and I think personally I'll say he has both good and bad. Mostly good though like a 60 to 40 thing. Thanks for all of your comments and posts. :mrgreen:

Yuukimaru

he is good
it was the leaf village's corruption and he was ordered to kill his family but left his brother alive because he cared for him too much

Umm...he is evil in a good way!! Nya!!, he was a peaceful guy (he WAS) he just followed his orders...and he killed the uchiha clan because they were going to....well you guys know what they were gonig to do to konoha!! :)!! Bye!!, and for those who think itachi is a bad guy!!, he is NOT (in my opinion of course).

He's not evil. He was just doing what the elders told him to do because his loyalties rested with Konoha. And he didn't kill Sasuke because he loved him so much and wanted him to be the one to kill him since he killed there whole family. He gave up everything for Konoha and Sasuke.

I don't think he's evil, but thats just in my perspective

Rashenshuriken
06-24-2009, 07:31 AM
Even though He killed his entire clan he had no choice because his clan was planning a rebellion and that would of started a civil war and Itachi had to choose the better of the two. He also kept his brother alive because he wanted Sasuke to kill him. He is not evil one bit.

Kon
06-24-2009, 07:53 AM
he isnt evil not one bit he deffinately loves his brother he chose to give his eyes at da end and he but an amaterasu lock safe thing on sasuke's eyes so madara can't have them so..........

And he knew da clan was planning a rebbellion against da village and the third hokage couldnt stop what the elders ordered so..........

He is good but wat i dnt understand is why he lied and wanted to be hated by sasuke to protect him my dad explained it to me but i wanna know what u guys think so respond however you like please!!!!

Tobi46
06-24-2009, 08:09 AM
He is not evil he is far away from being evil he killed his clan because he was ordered to do that but he couldn't kill Sasuke (his little Brother

And When he fought Sasuke he could have kill Sasuke easily but he didn't he wanted to be killed by Sasuke and then Tobi told him all about Itachi and then Sasuke felt Sorry for killing him and then he went against the elders of Konoha (Not yet but im sure he will kill them Specially DANZO!)

06-24-2009, 08:20 AM
Yeah Itachi isn't bad he killed his clan to save his brother think about this hmm.He killed his girl friend his mother his father and his friends but couldn't kill his brother.He did this so madara wouldn't make war with the leaf Madara didn't know about sasuke I think madara was mad at his clan and asked itachi to get rid of them.He killed everyone but his brother.

Darkest-Yang
07-06-2009, 07:21 PM
he is both

Zazuro
07-06-2009, 07:40 PM
I got to say No.

I give my top 10 reasons why:

1. He only killed his clan because it was a top secret mission
2. When he killed his clan, he couldn't kill his little brother, Sasuke
3. He only wanted to aviod Sasuke from believing that he was a good guy, avioding that sasuke wouldn't find out the truth.
4. He could have killed Sasuke when he had the chance since Sasuke was weaker than Itachi before the final Itachi VS Sasuke fight.
5. He implanted his very own ocular powers into Sasuke's eyes.
6. Itachi wanted to protect Sasuke.
7. He begged the Third and the other elders so he don't have to kill Sasuke and not to tell him the truth.
8. He wanted to surpass and kill Madara Uchiha/Tobi.
9. He implanted the Amaterasu in sasuke's eye so when sasuke sees Tobi/Madara Uchiha's sharingan, it would automatically activates and goes towards Tobi/Madara Uchiha, to keep him away from sasuke from meeting and maybe recruiting him in Akatsuki or to kill Tobi/Madara Uchiha.
10. (Pretty important last) Sasuke to itachi was more precious than the village, he cared so much about his little brother and jsut wouldn't. couldn't kill his little brother. He took all kinds of medication to keep himself alive until to the very end so he could die in front of sasuke at his own very feet.

i think he's sorta like a third party. there are so many different factors....and he never really seemed to be filled with the hate that he told Sasuke to kill him out of. Even during Sasuke's flashback when he said "There's no hope left for this pathetic clan", i think there were more factors then we can see.

No, Itachi was never evil, not one bit. No matter what he did, he did it for his brother's own benifit. He destroyed the Uchiha's because he was ordered to. He loved his brother and cared about him more than anyone in his clan and he was able to kill everyone but him. He cared and loved too much to be evil.

let me ask you guys something...itachi killed everyone in his clan except sasuke and pleaded with the third to let him live, and threatened danzo that he'd destroy him if he ever laid a hand on sasuke. but, why use mangekyou on him? why tell him to get the mangekyou sharingan and why make him relive the events of the massacre by using tsukiyomi? why not just knock him out so he could move on and live a normal shinobi life? why make him seek revenge?

Kakashi Hatake_Yamato
11-14-2013, 09:18 PM
Looked evil when in the original series.

But when Shippuden came around, we figure out his true motive.

And the answer is no, he is not evil.

But he is in a way for murdering his own clan and mind raping his own little brother.

Chi Rothschild
11-14-2013, 09:21 PM
I was scared of Itachi. Can you believe it?

Fell in love the first time I saw him in Shippuden, though. He was 'evil' back then but I still liked him anyway. I loved him more after the truth.

Not evil. He's the most sensitive, patriotic person in Narutoverse, imo.

EternalSasuke
11-15-2013, 11:25 AM
I can believe that, he was introduced as an evil character, but ended up being not so bad.

I don't agree that he's the most sensitive character, but he did sacrifice a lot of personal virtue, and he's not such a bad guy...*heh aniki, you're not too bad*

Remion18
11-15-2013, 11:29 AM
Itachi is graceful.... elegant...just...strong.... and yet made mistakes..
He admitted it himself that he failed..
