Naruto: Who are all the Akatsuki members? | Spaghetti code

Date: July 18, 2024 Time: 04:47:39

One of the most important and dangerous ninja organizations in the Naruto universe is the group of criminals known as Akatsuki. Throughout Masashi Kishimoto’s work, his motivations, his way of completing missions, and the reason for his founding are presented, which changes dramatically as the end of the manga approaches.

Who creates Akatsuki?

Akatsuki, introduced at the end of Naruto Part I and at the beginning of Shippuden, consists of the following characters: Pain, Konan, Kisame Hoshigaki, Itachi Uchiha, Saori, Deidara, Hidan, Kakuzu, Zetsu, and Tobi (who would later be revealed as Madara/Obito Uchiha) .

Old versions of Naruto

In Naruto Shippuden, it is known that Akatsuki had other goals at the beginning of its activities. Through Nagato, Konan and Yahiko, three of Jiraiya’s former students, they adopt the teachings of their sensei and dedicate themselves to eradicating the internal conflicts in their home, Hidden in the Rain.

However, once Hanzo Salamanders confronts them, Yahiko sacrifices herself for the sake of the team, causing Nagato to fall into madness, become Pain, and lead the Akatsuki down the path of darkness in Naruto.

Former members

Being an organization from different eras, it is normal to see other former members, as is the case with Orochimaru. The Konoha native joined with the intention of gaining power, however he wanted to kill Itachi Uchiha in order to take over his body, which would lead to his exile.

Additionally, two more former members are shown in the anime. On one hand, we have Juzo Biwa, former member of the Seven Ninja Swordsmen and Itachi Uchiha’s mentor in Akatsuki, who dies during a raid on the Village of Mist.

On the other hand, there is an old mercenary who was Kakuzu’s partner, who was killed by his partner in the middle of the battle due to “his slowness in battle.”

The word Akatsuki means “Sunrise” or “Sunset”, depending on the combination of Japanese letters. It refers to a class of destroyers that served with the Imperial Japanese Navy during the Russo-Japanese War, but in Naruto it was an organization whose purpose was to capture Jinchuriki and extract the Tailed Beasts to seal them in the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path.
