Naruto also meets up with his other squadmate, Sakura Haruno, and the three go on a training to see what Naruto has learned. They are tasked with Grabbing a pair of bells from Kakshi in which they are successful in doing so. Once that is finished, they are then tasked with capturing sasuke from oruchimaru, Jiraiyas former friend and sasukes sensei. Naruto and Sasuke fight, they are equal strengths and sasuke and his group departs.
Meanwhile this was all happening, Gaara the Kaezakage, Narutos Friend from a different village and the jinchuriki(holder) of the one tails is captured by Deidara, a member of the Akatsuki a group that their main goal is hidden for now, and Kankuro, Gaaras brother goes after them, but is sverely poisoned in the process. Narut, Kakashi, and Sakura is notified of this and their friends and other sensei tags along for the mission to retrieve Gaara.

As they are locating the hidden hideout Deidara and his partner Sasori is hiding in, Gaara is being extracted of his tailed beast which in the process kills him, Chiyo, Gaaras grandma also comes along in the mission and helps them. They find the hideout and Deidara leaves with Gaaras dead body, Enraging Naruto and almost releasing the Nine-tails in Naruto, Kakashi follows naruto and they both chase down Deidara as tthe other squad has to retreat. This leaves Sasori and Chiyo to Fight Sasori, Sakura and Chiyo emerging victorious and killing Sasori. Once they retrieve Gaaras body Chiyo gives her life to revive Gaara.
Once Gaara returns, Naruto is assignned a new task and it is revealed that Deidara got a new partner, Tobi, a very important character later on in the story. Going to Sasuke, Sasukes sensei, Orochimaru is in a weakened state and Sasuke takes advantage of this becasue he knows that Oruchimarus goal was to take sasukes body and use it as his own. Sasuke kills Orochimaru and leaves the hideout. He forms a new group in for the sole purpose of finding and killing Itachi and on his journey, he comes across Deidara and Tobi, in which he engages in a fight and kills Deidara. Kisame, Itachis partner shows up and tells them that there is a hidden location that they can meet at, but only sasuke and Itachi are allowed in there. Sasuke meets up with Itachi and they fight. Sasuke using he had learned, he uses his most powerful move that he had been training for, the "Kirin" he attempts to kill Itachi with the final move. But failing to do so, after he had thought that Itachi was dead, Itachi summons his Susanoo, a powerful summoning that only wielders of the Sharingan can summon witth the Mangekyo Sharingan, an evolved version of the standard Sharingan. During the ongoing battle, Orochimaru rises from Sasukes Curse mark, something that he had planted onto Sasuke beforehand for power. But Itachi seals away Orochimaru and the cursemark once and for all with the Totsuka blade, a powerful sealing sword. But before Itachi can "kill" Sasuke, he has a brother to brother moment, and dies infront of Sasuke as Sasuke also collapse from being too tired.
Once Itachi dies though, sasuke is taken in by a mysterious figure. Sasuke figures out that this figure is Tobi, Deidara's partner. Revealing his true self and telling Sasuke his brothers actual purpose and why he did everything he did. That Itachi was a caring person, that he was tasked with killing the Uchiha Clan because of Danzo, a village counselor was informed that the Uchiha clan was planning a coup d'etat and to try to bring themselves back to power since the second hokage's rule. Once Itachi was tasked with killing everyone from their clan and forced to kill his parents he spared his brother when he was not supposed to. The third hokage orders him to leave the village so that no one woulld recognize Itachis for his Actions. Itachi was also given a hidden task, to be an undercover spy for the Akatsuki. This whole time, Itachi was informing the Hidden leaf village of the actions of the Akatsuki and working with the leaf along with also protecting his younger brother, but no one had known this. This leads to Sasuke awakening the Mangekyo Sharingan and then he sets a goal to destroy the Hidden lead Village for what they did to Itachis Name. Once Sasuke joins the Akatsuki, He is tasked with capturing the eight tails jinchuriki, they fight and they capture Killer Bee, the jinchuriki, but its then later revealed that they only captured a clone and extracted a portion of the Chakara to the Gedo Statue. While that was all happening, Jiraiya journeys to the Hidden rain village, getting informed that was the hide out of the Akatsuki, but Jiraiya gets jumped by his former students, Konan, and Pain, who have the Rinnegan, a powerful eye that grants the user the power of the sage of the six paths. But they are all too powerful for them, before he dies though, he sends a letter frog to the hidden leaf village to inform the lady Tsunade, the Hokage of the situation and what they are going up against. Naruto returns to the hidden leaf village and learns of Jiraiyas death and is depressed after learning of his masters death, but undergoes training for Senjutsu at a hidden location, to fight off pain and the Akatsuki.
While he is training at a hidden location, the hidden leaf village is attacked and destroyed by Pain in order to find Narutos location so that they can extract the nine-tails from him. Naruto comes back to the hidden leaf village in order to take on all Members at once like the disgusting monster he is. He takes out all but one of the members and he is incapacitated and forced to watch his classmate, Hinata, attempt to take on The last standing member, but she is taken down, but not dead. After seeing this Naruto gets enraged and released the Kyuubi(Nine-tails in japanese) Cloak and reaches a 4 tailed state of the fox(if he reaches nine-tailed without mastering the Nine-tails power, he dies) and takes on the last standing member of Pain. He is desperate to release the entire power of the nine-tails but his fathers chakara gets in contact with him and tells him about his past and how he was the hokage and also Kakashis teacher. Naruto Kills the final member with his signature move the rasengan and uses his sage powers to locate a hidden member who was just using everyone else as a puppet other than Konan. Naruto finds the final member, Nagato, another member of the almost dead clan the uzumaki clan that Naruto is in, and he talks to Nagato about what he is doing is wrong. He is convinced and he later uses his sage of the six paths Rinne-Rebirth power to revive everyone that was killed in the destruction, but this leads to Nagato dying. Naruto goes back to the village and he is praised as the hero of the village. But due to all the fighting that was going on during the invasion, Tsunade had used up all her powers in order to revive and keep some civillians safe and she is put in a coma. Later, Danzo, the one that tasked Itachi with killing his clan is given the title of Hokage and with that, Sasuke sees the chance to kill Danzo for what he did. So during the 5 kage Summit where every kage meets up to discuss future planning, Sasuke uses this to his Advantage to kill Danzo and anyone else in his way. While he is heading there, the kages are informed that Sasuke is on his way, and they prepare to fight. Sasuke fights the Kaezakage and the Raikage and goes past them. Sasuke also fights the Tsuchikage and the Mizukage. But the fight is Interuptted after Tobi, who now goes by Madara, the name of one of the most powerful Uchiha in history, starts the next great war and explaining his goal of project Tsukuyomi. As Sasuke is healing, They found out that Danzo had fleed the area and Tobi Transports Sasuke to Danzo so that they can fight. Danzo explains that he wanted all the eyes of the Uchiha implanted on him so that he would have the power to use Izanagi, the power to rewrite reality but with the risk of losing that eye, hence the reason that Danzo wanted all those sharingans, so that He would not have to worry about losing any eyes. Danzo takes Karin hostage, but Sasuke uses his lightning sword to stab through Karin and into Danzo. Danzo in a predicament, uses the reverse tetragram seal to try to take out everyone else in the vincinity but kills no one other than himself. But Before Madara can take the sharingans that Danzo had stolen, Danzo had crushed all of it befor he died. Sakura Appears but nearly dies trying to kill sasuke but is saved by Kakashi, and as they are fighting, Sakura tries to kill Sasuke again, but is nearly killed if it wasn't for naruto coming in to save her. Sasuke and Naruto talk but Sasukes group quickly retreats so that Sasuke can heal and rest. It turns out that since Sasuke had been using his Sharingans too much, He is starting to lose sight in his eyes, so He wants Itachis eyes planted in him so he would be able to get the Enternal Mangekyo Sharingan.
With the start of the other great ninja war coming, Naruto and Bee is assigned to be hiding on an island so that the chances of them getting captured would be slimmer as they would not know where their locations are. They are no informed of what the purpose of this mission is but it is also to train Naruto to control his Kyuubi Chakara. Through this process, he meets his mother, the jinchuriki of the Nine-tails before him, and he is given powers from her to also control the power of the nine-tails. Soon Kisame, appears after disguising himself as one of the Bees swords tries to escape but is quickly captured and interrogated. But before they extract any information from him, he bites his togue off and commits suicide and sends a shark off to tell them of the location of where they are hiding at. Moving forward, Tobi and Kabuto(Orochimarus former partner) are now teamming up for the great ninja war. Tobi Prepares for the war by looking for Nagatos dead body so that he can take the rinnegan from him and use it as his own during the battle and for his ultimate plan. He goes to Konan to ask her but she is on narutos side and Tobi kills her, finding the location without her help. He takes the rinnegan, so as if right now, he has a sharingan in one eye and a rinnegan in the other. Kabuto has mastered the Reanimation jutsu, a jutsu that brings dead people back to life with a sample of their DNA. Kabuto Reanimates Deidara and heads to the island that Naruto and Bee are hidnig. During the battle, Kabuto captures Yamato so he can use his wood style to power an army of white zetsu. Before the big fight, all five nations form an alliance under one name. Naruto escapes and uses Sage mode and senses all of the battle going on and escaping. Naruto and Bee fight Tsunade and the Raikage. While they are heading to the main battlefield, They come across Nagato and they also come across Itachi, who had been reanimated with no control of their body.

Sasuke sees Itachi and follows him to Kabuto, in which Sasuke and Itachi fight Kabuto. During the fight, Itachi puts Kabuto under a jutsu that repeats until Kabuto does what he needs to, and undoes the Reanmation. Everyone else is gone, but Madara is able to withstand this and redo the jutsu, making him nearly invincible as he can't die because he is already dead and his body would just reattach itself until he is sealed away. realizing that they are going to lose the war if they don't get help, they plan on reviving the former hokage, but they don't know anyone else who can do that.

Naruto breaks his mask after they are sucked into another dimension using his Sharingan. After Naruto breaks his mask, Kakashi sees that it is Obito, Kakashis old squadmate that was thought to be dead. Obito was "killed" during a mission back in Kakahis young days but before Obito was "Killed" he had given Kakashi his left eye, granting him the ability to use the sharingan, which is why their mangekyo Sharingan has the same shape. Madara defeats all five kage and appears next to Obito to move forward with their next plan. So that they can revive the ten tails. But during that summoning, the ten tails shoots a barrage of spikes torwards the army and Neji jumps in front of one dying, so that he can save Naruto.

Naruto then gives Obito a quick talking to and converts Obito to the good side. to fight along side Naruto and allied forces. Obito attempts to use the Rinne-Rebirth to revive everyone that died in the battle, but he is taken over by Madara so that Madara can be revived and he can become the jinchuriki of the ten tails.
Madara is then given Nagatos other eye and then given the chance to execute his plan from the beginning ever since he was a child and had read a manuscript. Madara had given Nagato those eyes in order to save it for his ressurection. But no one had known it at the time other than Madara himself. He absorbs the ninetails out of Naruto, and takes a portion of the eight-tails along with the rest of the other tailed beast to become the new ten tails jinchuriki.
