Madara Uchiha (うちはマダラ, Uchiha Madara) is a legendary shinobi and a former leader of the Uchiha clan. After allying with his rival,Hashirama Senju, their two clans founded Konohagakure to achieve peace in the world. He eventually came to an impasse with Hashirama, and defected from the village. He was later seemingly killed by his rival at the battle at the Valley of the End, but in fact survived and went into hiding, continuing his own plans to end world conflict. Unable to complete it in his natural life, he entrusted his knowledge and plans to Obito Uchiha after his passing. Madara was eventually revived during the Fourth Shinobi World War, allowing him to continue his plans personally.
