Background

Sasuke leaving

Sasuke leaving Konohagakure.

On one fateful night, Itachi slew every member of the Uchiha clan, sparing only Sasuke. This driven Sasuke to take revenge upon Itachi and avenge his clan. During his time in Konohagakure, Sasuke became a Konoha genin and was teamed up with Naruto Uzumaki and Sakura Haruno and received guidance from Kakashi Hatake. Sometime ago, Sasuke left his village, seeing as it was holding him back from his goal, and started his quest to find and kill his older brother. He eventually formed a team called Taka, consisting of Suigetsu Hōzuki, Karin, and Jūgo.

Personality

As a child, Sasuke was kind and friendly.[1] After the Uchiha Clan Downfall, Sasuke turned into a cold, cynical and arrogant young man, becoming a self-titled avenger with a one track mind of killing Itachi and restoring the Uchiha clan.[2]

Sasuke's dark glare

Sasuke's dark nature.

After leaving Konohagakure and training under Orochimaru for two-and-a-half years, Sasuke became a cold and sadistic individual, being completely dedicated in his one desire to kill Itachi. Sasuke is confident in his strength and often remains composed and unconcerned. On some occasions, Sasuke shows frustration when something embarrassing happens to him. This is usually caused by his own doing and reacts by lashing out on any witnesses. Sasuke also has a strong sense of pride in his clan, constantly reminding his opponents to not underestimate him due to him being an Uchiha.

After forming his team, Taka, Sasuke was not prepared to form a bond with his team-mates, just only seeing them as support for his cause. However, Sasuke has shown signs of wanting to be comforted by them, evident by him feeling alone on Christmas Eve.[3] He also seems to not mind doing activities with them, whether it's playing video games or watching a movie.

Sasuke and Naruto competition

Sasuke and Naruto's rivalry.

During his time in Konohagakure, Sasuke had a complex relationship with his old team-mate, Naruto Uzumaki. Due to Sasuke's advance skills, Naruto saw Sasuke as a rival, however Sasuke did not feel the same way. Despite this, Sasuke is not above accepting challenges from the latter to prove himself.[4][5]

While resting at a tea shop, Sasuke reminds his team that his ultimate goal is to kill his older brother Itachi Uchiha who slaughtered his clan. Unexpectedly, Sasuke surprisingly spots Itachi, and his partner, Kisame Hoshigaki after he asked for a table. Itachi explains himself saying that they were here to collect the restaurant's Chiffon Cake. The brothers then start to bicker at each other. Jūgo suggests a heat endurance test to settle their fight by placing them under a kotatsu. Itachi casts Sasuke under Tsukuyomi and surrounds him with a group of Sumo Wrestlers to increase his heat temperature. Sasuke manages to break out of the genjutsu by using his Sharingan and plans on ignoring the heat by watching television, however, Itachi changes the channel, saying that since he is the older brother he should pick out the channel. Sasuke doesn't accept this and fights over the remote. As a result, the two pull out their strong attacks and destroys the inn in the process. Itachi says that Sasuke has gotten stronger and departs along with Kisame. He then leaves a message to Sasuke saying that his friends were strange.

Team 7 and Taka

Taka invited to a Flower Viewing party hosted by Team 7.

At the Valley of the End, Sasuke comes face to face with his old comrade, Naruto Uzumaki. Sasuke reminds Naruto that he refuses to come back to Konohagakure on the count that he became stronger after he severed his bonds with him and the rest of his comrades. However in actuality, Naruto mainly wanted Sasuke to come to a Flower Viewing Party since he told Sakura that he would come. He says no to this offer but is forcibly persuaded by Naruto.

While at the party, Sasuke meets his replacement Sai, confronted by Sakura and Karin, and is constantly challenged by Naruto. Naruto ends the challenges with an eating contest. With the last piece of food left out, Sasuke tries to reach it before Naruto does, however, he uses the Chidori to clash with Naruto's Rasengan. They then enter a space where Naruto asked Sasuke if he has seen the yesterdays episode of Jumpolice and if he had recorded it because he had missed it. Sasuke complained saying that that was not what they were supposed to be talking about. They then lay down exhausted as Kakashi arrives late bringing snacks and wonders what has happened to the party.

They then mistakenly welcomes him back to the village, only for him to explain to them that he has return to retrieve an item at his old house. Unfortunately they ignore his reason and ends up staying for the time being.

Sasuke returns to his house but Naruto and Sakura follows him. He then finds the item he was looking for, the item being a forbidden scroll passed down from generations of the Uchiha clan. However, when Sakura opens the scroll it ends up being Naruto's scroll on how to perform the Sexy Technique. Throughout his time, Sasuke has multiple encounters with his former teammates. Afterwards, he plays a game of kick the can with them but uses his Sharingan to have the advantage. They all charge forward to kick the can but failed as Sasuke used his Sharingan to create a genjutsu. Naruto is the only player left standing and receives help from the Nine-Tails. With Naruto transformed as the Nine-Tails, he not only manages to kick the can but also kicks Sasuke and half of the village. Sasuke then lies down defeated. He then finally decides to leave but Sakura tries to stop him. Seeing how determined she is, he decides to use the Uchiha genjutsu contained within the scroll, but turns out to be a variation of the Sexy Technique.

He solves this problem by using Suigetsu as the pool, much to Suigetsu's disliking. Sasuke then decides to have nagashi-sōmen. Suigetsu tries to change it up by using his Water Release to catch Sasuke by surprise but Sasuke intercepts this and catches all of the noodles. Later, Karin asks Sasuke to apply oil on her so she can get a tan, however, missing-nin appear and try to attack. Sasuke unleashes a fireball towards them but instead lands towards Karin, causing her to catch on fire. After many failed attempts to cool himself, Sasuke resorts to laying on the floor, seeing that it felt cold.

Summer Festival!

Sasuke participates in candy cutting using his Sword of Kusanagi and then in goldfish scooping.

Taka then decides to create their own fireworks by using a large black snake firework.

Orochimaru then attacks Sasuke, wanting to take over his body, but Sasuke restrains him with his snake catcher. Seeing as he was out of options, Orochimaru summons Manda to fight on his behalf. Sasuke counters this by summoning a large hawk who uses a large snake catcher to restrain Manda. Sasuke declares this as his victory but Orochimaru does not give up and tries to connect with him using a smartphone.
