Sasuke Uchiha is one of the most well-known characters in anime history. He begins Naruto as the protagonist's haughty and powerful rival, and while the two hate each other at first, they ultimately come to appreciate and care for one another. Sasuke's ultimate goal is to get revenge on his older brother Itachi, who eliminated their entire clan for seemingly no reason. He's willing to do whatever it takes to get his vengeance, including allying himself with dangerous villains. When he discovers that Itachi was forced to do the deed by their city's government, his goal changes to destroying Konoha. In the end, he chooses to work to protect his home in spite of that betrayal. His story is tragic, moving....and surprisingly common in the world of anime.
