In Naruto, Akatsuki was one of the most formidable team threats since Dragon Ball Z’s Ginyu Force or Mobile Suit Gundam’s Zeon Principality. Each member has various abilities, abilities, and attitudes, but they all shared a common goal: to improve the world by sealing the Tailed Beasts.
However, they were all duped because the group was a front for Madara and Obito Uchiha’s ambitions. The two Uchiha were also duped by the ancient Black Zetsu, who desired to resurrect his mother Kaguya Tsutsui.
Akatsuki’s membership was fairly diversified, ranging from the aforementioned elderly Black Zetsu to younger and fresher faces such as Deidara, a clay explosives expert.
The following is a list of the ten Akatsuki members in Naruto, from youngest to oldest.
15 years old
Yahiko was comparable to Naruto Uzumaki when he was alive. He was the youngest Akatsuki member and co-founder alongside Konan and Nagato. Yahiko, like Naruto, was determined to become the Hidden Rain Village’s leader. Unlike Naruto, Yahiko, on the other hand, adhered to the Social Darwinist ideas of “Survival of the Fittest” and “Eye for an Eye.”
Yahiko was regarded as the group’s charismatic commander, and he began assembling the original Akatsuki as a peacekeeping operation. Yahiko intended to improve the world with Akatsuki’s help, using his control over fire, water, and wind discharge.
Unfortunately, it did not last, as Yahiko committed suicide to spare Nagato the decision of whether to kill him or Konan when the tyrant Hanzo of the Hidden Rain compelled him to do so.
Nagato came to feel that the world was beyond redemption after Yahiko’s death. Yahiko’s corpse would become the Deva Path of Pain, the major body through which Pain’s messages would be communicated.
19 years old
Obito Uchiha was buried behind rubble and barely lived after Rin was assassinated and subsequently masked as Madara. He spent a long time as Tobi after the Akatsuki was created until he stole authority from Pain and slain Konan.
Murder, betrayal, and whatever else was necessary to carry out the Moon’s Eye plot, he would do it. This resulted in his attempt to destroy the Leaf by forcibly extracting Kurama from Kushina. He also attempted to assassinate Naruto but failed due to his underestimation of Minato and Kushina’s talents. He took part in the killing of the Uchiha clan and recruited Itachi.
His talents were startlingly powerful, owing to Zetsu’s improvements to his chakra reserves, his Sharingan and Rinnegan, and Madara’s lectures on ninjutsu. By assuming the guise of the Ten-Tails Jinchuriki, he fought the Third, Fourth, and Second Hokage to a draw.
Obito was eventually persuaded to join the combined Shinobi troops and made the ultimate sacrifice to defend Kakashi, Sasuke, and Naruto from Kaguya. Obito was finally able to join Rin in the afterlife when his spell of hatred was lifted.
5:- Kisame Hoshigaki
32 years old
Shark-like Kisame Hoshigaki lost faith in humanity after assassinating his mentor Fuguki after discovering he was selling information to neighboring villages. Kisame reasoned that Moon’s Eye’s “World of Truth” was ideal. He and Itachi first clashed, but they later teamed up to attempt to catch Naruto.
Kisame is a bloodthirsty fighter, willing to mutilate and use very violent water techniques such as fast-moving sharks and massive volumes of water. His weapon Samehada possessed the ability to absorb and consume chakra. He also melded with it, transforming himself completely into a shark. He also possessed tremendous physical strength, which enabled him to overcome Asuma and even Guy at one time.
None of this ultimately aided him. Might Guy easily defeated Kisame, and the shark man committed suicide by letting his sharks engulf him to avoid being interrogated.
35 years old
During his time with Akatsuki, the sadistic former sand puppet master Sasori was associated with Orochimaru and then Deidara. He was rumored to construct human puppetry to alleviate the loneliness he had felt since boyhood.
Sasori also murdered the Third Kazekage and transformed his body into a puppet. His introduction to Akatsuki occurred during a brawl between him and Konan, which he lost but later joined.
Cruel, nihilistic, and impatient, Sasori employed vicious blade work and summoned well over 200 puppets to attempt to murder Sakura and Chiyo. Sasori was a real puppeteer at great ranges, owing to his command of the chakra threads, and could even manipulate living individuals as puppets. The puppets were armed with a variety of weapons: knives, flamethrowers, and poison spitters, to name a few. With them all, he even brought down a small nation!
Despite all of this, as well as a significant intellectual capacity, he was assassinated by Chiyo and Sakura. After being restored, he was later killed and contained by Kankuro and Sai. As atonement, he gave Kankuro his mother and father puppets to be passed on to future generations.
3:- Konan and Nagato
35 years old
