Madara Uchiha (うちはマダラ, Uchiha Madara) was a legendary shinobi who led the Uchiha clan prior to, and after the formation of Konohagakure. After the loss of his younger brother, he engaged his rival in the meaning to end their rivalry, eventually to end up allying Hashirama Senju and his clan. The old friends could finally realize their once-upon-a-time abandoned dream, working together to influence other clans, whereas Madara helped with the founding of Konoha. Seeing no progress for him and his clan, he defected from the village. It was thought that he was killed by his rival at the battle at the Valley of the End, but in fact went into hiding with his newfound power to begin plotting his decades-long plan, better known as the Eye of the Moon Plan, which was continued by a fatal-wounded Uchiha he “nursed up” who later joined him. The price for saving Obito’s life was vaguely told but is surely a huge part of his plan.
