Madara Uchiha (Japanese: うちは マダラ, Hepburn: Uchiha Madara) is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto. He appears for the first time in the series' second part, "Part II" of the manga and the Shippuden anime adaptation, as a background character. He 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 along with its first leader Hashirama Senju. Their power conflict over how to run the village, as well as the long-term feud between the Uchiha and Senju clans, leads to Madara's supposed death. However, it is later revealed that Madara had used a man named Obito Uchiha as his agent and transplants his Eye Technique Rinnegan (輪廻眼, lit. "Saṃsāra Eye") eye power into a child named Nagato, the leader of the terrorist organization Akatsuki, to be preserved for his eventual revival years later. During most of the Naruto series, Obito uses Madara's name until a criminal named Kabuto Yakushi reanimates the real Madara, after which the latter becomes the main antagonist during the Fourth Shinobi World War storyline. Madara has appeared in several pieces of Naruto media, including a Boruto feature film. He has been featured as a playable character in many of the Naruto video games.
