What Led Madara Uchiha To battle Against The New Shinobi Alliance?
Madara Uchiha was born during the period of the Warring States. Since childhood, he has seen states fighting against each other for land, money & Power, ignoring peace and welfare. So, Madara Uchiha always wanted to be free from the concept of war in order to bring peace.
However, the long-time rivalry between the Uchiha clan and Senju Clan never let his plans come to reality. Madara Uchiha is the eldest one among his other five brothers. He is the son of Tajima Uchiha, who fought several times with the warriors of the Senju clan and lost three of his sons, except Izuna and Madara, during the war.
When Madara grows a little older, he also becomes a warrior and starts fighting against the rival Senju Clan. Apparently, he meets Hashirama Senju, not knowing his name and clan, and becomes best friends with him. Madara and Hashirama never disclose their names in front of each other, but when they do, their rivalry begins again.
As Tajima, Madara also has an animosity against the whole Senju clan because his brothers get killed at the hands of Senju warriors during the war, and Hashirama, being from the Senju clan, enraged Madara stands against his Senju best friend, Hashirama.
Friendship turns into Rivalry – Hashirama Senju kills Madara Uchiha.
Madara, the fully enraged Uchiha, wants nothing but to defeat the Senju clan and Hashirama, his best friend. So, when Hashirama and Madara become the leaders of their respective clans, they engage in the war several times. However, Madara never wins against the Senju Clan.
Hashirama, who never wanted his friendship to end with Madara despite the fact that he belongs to the rival group, takes the initiative to sign a treaty with the Uchiha clan to bring peace to both clans by way of the alliance. After knowing Hashirama’s feelings for Madara, he accepts to form an alliance, and both friends form a village called Konohagakure.
When Hashirama becomes the Hokage, Madara gets concerned about the Uchiha clan, who tries to create dominance over Konohagakure. However, Hashirama has always had compassionate methods of running the village, and methods of handling the village differ from Madara, who believes in taking full control of the village. They again engage themselves in battle, and Madara gets killed at the hands of Hashirama.
Madara Uchiha’s Plan To Restore His Life
Even though Madara dies at the hands of the Senju clan, he already has his plans to come back to life with the use of Izanagi. Madara resurrects in exchange for his vision of the eye and then hides to plan further. After numerous years, Madara successfully created a plan called the Eye of The Moon Plan to bring eternal peace.
But to achieve his goal, he needs several years, and Madara finds his natural death to be on its way so he plans to insert Rinnegan into Nagato’s eyes without him knowing, in the hope that one day Nagato will reanimate him to life again.
Apparently, during the third shinobi world war, Madara comes across wounded Obito. Madara heals him with Hashrama’s cells and works towards making him strong enough to serve him in the future. But Madara uses some twisted ways to make Obito offer his service to him.
Madara then trains him properly to bring the eye of the moon plan into reality. Apparently, when Madara dies, Obito takes full responsibility for the eye of the moon plan and leads Akatsuki. He later pretends to be Madara and gradually arrives at the last stage of the plan to give a head start to the fourth Shinobi war.
Kabuto Resurrects Madara To Use Him Against The New Shinobi Alliance During The War
Obito, since Madara’s death, has worked with loyalty under Madara and Black Zetsu’s guidance. As Obito knows every plan that Madara had been making when he was alive, he works very carefully and then arrives at the final stage. However, he comes across Kabuto, who asks Obito to form an alliance with him during the fight against Shinobi Alliance.
Obito, who never actually wanted to agree to the alliance, helplessly agreed when Kabuto summoned the real body of Madara. Knowing that Kabuto knows about the real Madara, and Obito is only pretending to be him, He finds no option than join hands with Kabuto.
Kabuto resurrects Madara with the help of Impure World Reincarnation to fight against the Shinobi Alliance. Madara, who always wanted to get resurrected with Nagato’s Samsara Heavenly life technique, steps onto the battlefield to fight against Shinobi Alliances after getting to know about his resurrection from Kabuto.
