Who is Sasuke’s mom?
Mikoto Uchiha was the wife of Fugaku Uchiha and the mother of Itachi Uchiha and Sasuke Uchiha. Although little is known of her career as a kunoichi, she was presumably strong enough to have been promoted to the rank of Jōnin. After marrying Fugaku Uchiha, she became a housewife, raising her children (Itachi and Sasuke).
She was the first to know about her friend Kushina Uzumaki’s pregnancy, and she expressed her wish that her sons, Sasuke and Naruto, respectively, would be good friends. During the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox Attack, Itachi noted that she and her husband were absent before the attack. In the novel Itachi Shinden: Book of Brilliant Light, it is said that Fugaku Uchiha had work that day, while the reasons why Mikoto was not present are still unknown.
Despite her concentration on domestic activities, it is presumed that she was also very trustworthy to be by her spouse’s side when he began plotting a coup against Konoha. During the Uchiha Clan Massacre, she was together with Fugaku when Itachi appears and tries to talk, but Mikoto tells him that they know.
After that, Fugaku says a few last words to his son and then both are killed. Mikoto was a very gentle and kind woman, qualities of hers that characterized her as a good mother. She cared deeply about her children and knew how to help them with her problems. Most of all, Sasuke, whom she advised and reassured about Itachi and, likewise, encouraged by telling him that when she and Fugaku were alone, he only talked about Sasuke.
Even so, she was shown to have a strong and authoritarian character, such as when she tells her children that they should do their homework before going out to play. Despite the fact that she was Itachi’s mother, like other members of the Clan, she grew suspicious of his strange behavior, but no matter that, she still possessed unconditional love for her son, offering the latter comforting words before allowing him to leave. that she and her husband were killed by their firstborn.
Who is Sasuke’s dad?
Fugaku Uchiha was a jōnin from Konoha. He was both the head of the Uchiha clan and the Konoha Police Department. Fugaku Uchiha was the leader of the Uchiha Clan as well as the head of the Konoha Police Department, a police force responsible for maintaining order within the village, created at the time of the Second Hokage, and which since then has always been under the responsibility of the Clan.
During the Third Great Ninja War, shinobi of other nations trembled at the mention of Fugaku, the Evil Eye. In the final weeks of the war, Fugaku accompanied his four-year-old son, Itachi, to a battlefield to confront his young son with the harsh reality of death. He sought to make him aware of what the life of a shinobi was like: fighting, killing and dying.
In the anime, during the war, a dear friend of Fugaku died in battle, allowing him to awaken the Mangekyō Sharingan, a fact he had decided to keep hidden from the rest of the world. When the war ended a few weeks later, resulting in Konoha’s victory, Hiruzen Sarutobi, Third Hokage, resigned from his position, a member of the clan informed Fugaku that there were votes to install him as the Fourth Hokage.
Fugaku was then questioned by the man about what they should do with Kakashi Hatake possessing their clan’s dōjutsu. Understanding that Obito Uchiha was fighting bravely, he decided to respect the boy’s wishes and let Kakashi keep his Sharingan. When Fugaku’s wife Mikoto gave birth to their second son, Fugaku named his son Sasuke after the Third Hokage’s father.
Following Kyūbi’s attack on the village of Konoha, the leaders accused the Uchiha Clan of having orchestrated this disaster (during the attack, Itachi noticed the absence of Fugaku and his wife at home, which they did that night is unknown). Relations between the Uchiha and the other inhabitants of the village then became strained. Fugaku, out of revenge, staged a Coup to take control of Konoha.
He entrusted his son Itachi with the role of spy within the Anbu, gathering information for the clan. However, Itachi secretly betrayed the clan and acted as a double agent, gathering information for Konoha’s rulers. Itachi being his eldest son, Fugaku seemed to care more about him than his younger son, Sasuke. He went so far as to defend him when he was accused of murdering Shisui Uchiha.
However, when Itachi lost his faith in the clan, his relationship with his father deteriorated. Eventually, Fugaku grew more attached to Sasuke. Impressed by her talents, he advised her not to follow her older brother’s path. Fugaku and his wife were killed by Itachi on the day of the Uchiha Clan Massacre. But before he died, he told his son he was proud of him and asked him to protect Sasuke before Itachi ended their day. Fugaku was found the next day lying on his wife’s body.
Who killed Sasuke’s mother and father?
One night, Itachi and Tobi assassinated the entire Uchiha clan. In the anime, they split the duties and Tobi took charge of the Konoha Police Department while Itachi took care of the civilians. During the massacre, Tobi quietly took away some of the bodies of his peers. Thinking that his father would be the most formidable enemy, Itachi silently entered his own house.
But, to his surprise, his parents were waiting for him and had resigned themselves to their sad fate, preferring death over fighting their own son. Before taking their last breaths, they told Itachi that they respected his decision to choose the village over the clan, and made him promise to watch over Sasuke.
After shedding a few tears, Itachi killed them both while his brother was still at the Academy. Even though he knew his necessary actions, Itachi never managed to forgive himself for taking the lives of his loved ones and believed that his redemption would come from his own death. He, therefore, assigned Sasuke the role of the one who would avenge the clan and, at the same time, judge him for his actions.
It was with this in mind that the elder attacked his younger brother when he entered their house the night of the murder, manipulating Sasuke’s feelings so that the latter thought that the slaughter of the clan was nothing but a desire for greatness. selfish of Itachi. He tortured Sasuke with the Tsukuyomi, showing him images in which he slaughtered the clan, and encouraged him to take the path of hatred and seek power if he ever wanted revenge.
Overwhelmed by his anger, Sasuke awoke to the Sharingan and threw a shuriken in the direction of his brother whose headband fell to the ground as he dodged the projectile. Finding that he was the source of his brother’s suffering, Itachi cried while picking up his blindfold just before disappearing.
At the same time, Sasuke lost consciousness from the trauma caused by both his brother’s technique and the actual loss of his loved ones. He didn’t remember that moment until years later.
How old was Sasuke when his parents were killed?
As we know from the manga and the anime, Sasuke was seven years old when he survived the Massacre of the Uchiha Clan, as perpetrated by Itachi and Obito Uchiha. The events would go on to shape Sasuke’s character for years to come and were one of the most important moments in the history of the Naruto franchise.
