Sasuke Uchiha, a deuteragonist in the Naruto series belongs to the great Uchiha clan of Konoha village. He is the sole surviving member of the Uchiha clan after his older brother Itachi Uchiha massacred the entire clan except him one night.
Mentioned below are the ten noteworthy moments of Sasuke Uchiha throughout the series, some of them are too obvious to be there, and some of them are small subtle moments that we cannot ignore.
1. Sasuke Uchiha Protecting Naruto during Zabuza Arc
The episodes before this one clearly indicate that Sasuke’s life goal is to kill ‘a certain someone’ but he gives that away to protect the life of his teammate against Haku’s Crystal Mirror Attacks. His empathetic side is shown quite less but this is one of the instances where it is shown properly.
2. Fight vs Gaara in Chunin Exams
Sasuke fights a bloodthirsty, disoriented Gaara by replicating Rock Lee’s style of hand-to-hand combat and speed within a month of training. Also, in the fight where we get to see Uchiha using Chidori for the first time.
3. Was Shocked to See the Effects of Rasengan
During the fight on the roof of the hospital to see who is better, they come at each other with Chidori and Rasengan. Kakashi swings both of them and their attacks fall on water tanks.
Immediately after a lot of water comes out from the hole created by Sasuke’s Chidori while a narrow stream of water comes out from Naruto’s tank. But as soon as Uchiha notices that the backside of Naruto’s tank is blown away and that his jutsu was more powerful, he is shocked and annoyed.
4. Sasuke Uchiha vs Naruto
The second big fight between him and Naruto takes place in the valley of the end. Naruto tries his best to bring him back home but he is blinded by the feeling of exacting revenge and growing strong enough for that.
5. Sasuke Uchiha vs Itachi
One of the most awaited fights in Naruto, is the battle between the Uchiha brothers. Both of them fought to their last breath. Although Itachi was nearly blind, he pushes Uchiha to the edge in his weakened state. The daunting expression on his face while Itachi taps his forehead and falls dead is beautifully shown.
6. Cries on The Beach
Sasuke crying on the beach after he learns the truth about Itachi and that his entire past was a lie shatters him to the very deep. This is one of the very few instances in which Uchiha is seen to be this emotional.
7. Fight vs Eight-Tails
The fight between him and Killer Bee was a fierce one. He and his group Taka underestimate the power of the jinchuriki which results in them being badly wounded. It seems at first that taka is successful but they quickly realize that they have been tricked.
8. The Evil Laughter in Front of Kakashi and Sakura
The evil laughter of Sasuke Uchiha in front of Kakashi and Sakura shows how much he had changed. A few moments before this scene, he fights with Danzo and kills him on his own. He holds Danzo and Konoha village to be responsible for his brother’s ill fate.
9. Sasuke Uchiha vs The Four Kage
Sasuke Uchiha and the taka invade the five Kage summits to look for Danzo. While doing that he kills many of the guards and fights two Kages. In his fight with Raikage, a man of immense physical strength and speed he is able to cut one of his hands and makes Gaara, the Kazekage fight as well. He shows no remorse for being branded an international terrorist.
10. His Decision to Fight in The Fourth Great Ninja War
After listening to Hashirama describing what it means to be a shinobi and a village, Sasuke Uchiha decides to join as an ally to the allied forces in the war.
11. His Final Fight with Naruto
His final fight gives us insight into his emotional state of mind. He realizes that he cannot accomplish everything on his own and acknowledged naruto as a fine ninja. This fight makes him lose his arm and does not go for a prosthetic one as an act of paying for his sins.
12. Sasuke Leaves The Village to Atone for His Sins
After the war, Sasuke Uchiha leaves the village to get a better understanding of the world and to atone for the sins he committed. From then, he acts as the Shadow Hokage protecting Konoha from various outside threats.
