i agree with nexos because the uchia clan could have summoned the fox to destory the village. or he could have done it to just test hes skills as a ninja cause the uchia clan was one of the most powerful clan in naruto.
Yea Itchie is evil but he was good at first but i dont see why would u kill your own clan even your mom and dad and relitives.......I dont under stand ?.?
I think Itachi is a good guy. I believe that the whole reason he killed his family is because they actually summond the nine tailed demon. Jiraiya says he thinks that it was Madara but not one person could do it. This leads me to belive that the whole Uchiha clan was a part of the summoning. That explains why Itachi doesn't kill Sauske because he was to young to know about any of it, and actually probably was not even born or only a few months at least.
im sorry but i have to say Itachi is good like i said earlyer he was only wanted to make his brother stronger u have to think about and watch the fight between them Itachi could have kill him.
Well everyone has their own opinion...
Now... granted he is killing people but if you look at it almost everyone you come across has killed someone, kills people or plans on killing someone/ people. He killed everyone but his younger brother. Yes he can kill many many people but if you think about it he's not the demon. His younger brother is the one with a demon inside him if i'm correct. He kills people and has no mercy for them but yet his just making his skill better, he's practicing his moves... I don't know but i think i'm going ot stop there because my main point i was trying to get across was that If he was truly a bad guy he would have killed his younger brother, a demon and never looked back. Then again maybe he had the hope that one day his brother would join him.. i don't know but i don't think he is to be honest with you.
I think that he is a good guy and only killed his clan because he realized the evil of the Uchiha clan and the true purpose of the Akatsuki is to make a weapon with the tailed beasts to show people the meaninglessness of fighting to bring peace to the world.
