Itachi Uchiha is one of the most iconic characters in the Naruto series with his cool appearance and intimidating aura. One of the reasons why he is so intimidating is because his Sharingan is often shown to be active. But why is this the case? In this article, we will discuss the truth behind Itachi’s always active Sharingan and why it’s important to his character development.
First and foremost, it’s essential to understand that Itachi’s Sharingan is not always active. Itachi only activates his Sharingan during specific situations, especially when he’s on high alert. Before he became a criminal in the village of Konoha, he only activated his Sharingan in certain conditions when he was relaxed. However, when he became a member of the Akatsuki and a criminal, he was always on guard and, thus, frequently activated his Sharingan.
Itachi rarely appears in the Naruto anime and manga. But when he does, he’s always involved in intense conflicts, which is why his Sharingan is always shown to be active. Whether it’s when he infiltrated Konoha, when he fought Sasuke, when he encountered Naruto again, or when he battled against Sasuke, all of these situations were tense and full of conflict. Therefore, Itachi was always on high alert, and his Sharingan was frequently activated.
Despite his frequent use of the Sharingan, Itachi minimalizes the use of his chakra. Unlike Kakashi, who utilizes his Sharingan frequently and drains his chakra, Itachi, being an original Uchiha clan member, was designed to handle the usage of the Sharingan. He can maintain the constant activation of his Sharingan, but he minimizes the use of his chakra to preserve it. Hence, his Sharingan is always on guard, but it’s not regularly activated to maximize its power.
In conclusion, Itachi always activates his Sharingan due to his vigilant and guarded nature, as he’s always involved in tense and conflict-ridden situations. However, it’s crucial to note that his Sharingan is not always active and that he minimalizes the usage of his chakra. Itachi’s character development is shaped by his vigilance, making him an intimidating but fascinating character in the Naruto series.
