The meaning of «obito uchiha»

Obito Uchiha (Japanese: うちは オビト, Hepburn: Uchiha Obito), also known by his alias Tobi (トビ), is a character in Masashi Kishimoto's manga Naruto. He is first introduced in a "Kakashi Chronicle" sidestory as a child soldier who sacrifices himself to save his friends (Kakashi Hatake and Rin Nohara, led by Minato Namikaze) from a rival group of ninjas. Although he was believed to have died, Obito is later revealed as the real leader of the terrorist organization, Akatsuki, mainly acting behind the scenes for a majority of the group's tenure. He uses the alias of his superior, Madara Uchiha, and conceals his true identity with masks as one of the primary antagonists in the series' second half. Obito and his varied personas have appeared in Naruto video games and animated adaptations.

Kishimoto created Obito early in the series to explore his relationship with Kakashi and explain how his friend possessed the eye technique of Sharingan (写輪眼, lit. "Copy Wheel Eye", English manga: "Mirror Wheel Eye"), unique to the Uchiha clan. Since Obito kept his identity secret, Kishimoto teased fans to anticipate the true identity of Tobi (most notably when the actual Madara Uchiha was revealed, which shocked fans and his voice actor). Critical reception of Obito's character has been positive for his portrayal as a child soldier in Kakashi's backstory and his role across the series' manga and anime, particularly his fight scenes.

Although Obito does not appear for the first time until the series' special chapters focused on his life as a child soldier, he makes a cameo appearance on the cover of the manga's 16th chapter in a picture with Kakashi Hatake. According to Masashi Kishimoto, one of the biggest mysteries in the series' first half was why Kakashi only possessed one Sharingan eye technique (unlike Sasuke Uchiha and other members of the clan, who possessed the technique in both eyes). Kishimoto wrote Kakashi's backstory to show him as a young ninja whom Obito gave his Sharingan when he was nearly killed in a fight. Kishimoto said that by chapter 16 he had conceived a storyline about Obito being an Uchiha and how it would affect Kakashi.[1]

During the series' first half Kishimoto introduced the Akatsuki terrorist organization, who seemed far stronger than the (younger) main characters. This led Kishimoto to change the series, giving the story a timeskip to when Naruto and his comrades would be able to face them. Kishimoto said that he based Akatsuki on similar real-life organizations.[1] Obito in his Tobi persona was Kishimoto's favorite Akatsuki character to draw, because of his simple mask.[2] His nickname (Tobi) comes from Obito calling him Guruguru (グルグル), an onomatopoeia for turning round and round or going around in circles. It can also mean "wrapped around", referring to Tobi's function as an armour for Obito.[3]

According to Kishimoto, Konan's death at the hands of her former superior Obito was a statement about the loss of the dream for peace that he, Nagato, Yahiko, and Konan shared, and an indication of Naruto Uzumaki's rise as a bringer of light and hope. Kishimoto emphasized that Obito had to kill Konan was because her former comrade had seen his face; he would not bring the ninja back to life when he forms an alliance with Kabuto Yakushi, who has an army of undead soldiers.[4] When the real Madara Uchiha appeared in the manga, Kishimoto refrained from stating Tobi's true identity but said that both characters were related and he would be revealed in the next few chapters.[5]
