My theory as to why Itachi did what he did

    Ok, here goes:

    1. Shisui was a member of Akatsuki. He was also a type of medium, or recruiter for other Uchiha. His mission was to recruit the stongest of Uchiha into Akatsuki.
    2. Him being Itachi's best friend, and Itachi becoming incredibly strong in and incredibly short amount of time, asked if Itachi would like to join. Itachi, being the upstanding citizen of Konoha that he was, decided that it would be best if Shisui, his best friend, died. He didn't want Akatsuki to ruin any other Uchiha, or citizens of Konoha.
    3. In doing so, Itachi was granted the Mangekyou. However, when Akatsuki had heard that their Uchiha recruiter had been slain, paid a little "visit" to Itachi.
    4. What they told him, I don't know, but they threatened him in some way, and said that he needed to repay the debt. They told him that he needed to killl everyone in his village and join them. Apparently the thread worked, and Itachi did as he was told.
    5. He left Sasuke alive though. Why? Because he knew that Sasuke would be overwhelmed with the knowledge that his brother had done what he had. But, the reason he was such a jerk to Sasuke about was because he was trying to motivate him. Itachi saw the potential of Sasuke and wanted him to get stronger, so that one day, they could confront the leader of Akatsuki together.
    6. However, Itachi hadn't anticipated that the mangekyou would cause you to lose your sight...and that's where my theory ends.

    We haven't seen Akatsuki since then, and right now, this "Road to Sasuke" chapter is proving more and more interesting, so, as the chapter goes on, so will my theory.

    What do you guys think so far?

    Interesting theory I guess it could have been Shisui that was really in Akatsuki. That could also explain Itachi's saying that "it is not wise to judge others by your preconceptions and their appearances" when those Uchiha were talking about how loyal he was to the clan.

    I don't buy it, i think Itachi wanted to see how far his clan, he wanted to push Sasuke to the limit and raise himself above the clan. Or something like that, my two cents.

    I like the theory that Shisui was Akatsuki, but I think that after Shisui was killed and Itachi granted the MS, the OTHER Akatsuki member ( since they travel in pairs ) attacked and killed the Uchihas in retribution & Itachi chose to join them in order to protect Sasuke. Itachi feels guilt for "allowing" the destruction of his clan, so instills in his little brother the necessary rage to kill him.

    One thing it doesnt explain though is why did Itachi tell Sasuke to kill his best friend and have Sasuke see the image of his family being massacred for 48 hours?

    I think he probably joined the Akatsuki after.

    Itachi realized that Shishou was one of the akatsuki and he realized that noone would be able to stop the Akatsuki and with the pride of the Uchiha, the most noble clan. He tried to infiltrate the akatsuki, he told his father about the whole idea and his father willingly fell victim for his sword. 0:

    i'll definitely agree with the fact that Itachi is trying to motivate Sasuke. Clueless about the rest thou.

    Again, motivation, perhaps?
    I mean, look how Sasuke has been since it happened. He's been mean, completely non-loyal to anyone (which would be the result of having been betrayed to the highest degree early on), he's been on his own ever since, and doesn't want the help of anybody. I mean, if that incident didn't get him motivated, then I don't know what did.

    Also, look at the two times that Itachi has faced Kakashi. He never once actually killed him. All he did was show Kakashi his power. It's almost as if Itachi is telling Kakashi "You're going to be needed in this battle, but you're not quite there yet. You need to be at least where I am (thus the toying of kakashi) and then we can start the battle."

    At least that's what I think. ^_^

    It's fairly obvious that Itachi read something in the Uchiha temple, apparently the original purpose of the sharingan upset Itachi so much that he felt the clan had no right to live.

    Perhaps the sharingan was developed by sacrificing human lives? Time will tell.

    That certainly could be the case for the mangekyou, that's for sure.
    Or, at least, something similar.

    nope
    the truth, is way harder...

    The Sharingan was originaly created to pee on Girls in the Hot Springs ;D
    Itachi couldn't take it and killed the Clan.
    Coz every Woman in the Clan has been invited on this way

    There is no need for a theory about this topic.

    Someone who kills his parents and murders his own ppl is not 100% in his head. It's as simple as that.

    Interesting but... kinda too complicated..

    In the flashbacks during Sasuke x Naruto fight, we have seen that Itachi kinde wasn't too loyal to clan.. So i think he did it oon his own accord..

    Where does it show that he wasn't loyal? I mean before he killed everyone. :amuse
    I mean, sure, he's obviously emo, but other than that...I mean...

    I just want to hear your explanation is all. :)

    well, we don't know much information as far as that day or the previous days before itachi killed the uchiha clan, just to list a few possibilities, not the unlikeliness with them,

    1.the simple theory of someone in anbu manipulating, warping Itachi's mind, because he went crazy after getting in ANBU right?


    2.Perhaps the Uchiha clan higher ups decided to have him killed, maybe due to finding out he has the MS or something to that sort, when they attempted this, he decided to kill the whole clan off.

    3.Uchiha clan found out he killed Shisui, so they decided to assassinate him, rather than execute him in public and whatnot, so then he decided to kill the clan after the attempt failed

    4.the ANBU person who manipulated him was a member of Akatskui

    these are just thoughts off hand, I just think about it, we don't really know much about Shisui but he couldn't have been too weak, and the next morning after Itachi supposedly killed Shisui he didn't have a single scratch on him from what we saw.

    then again these are just "thoughts" not really theories, but simply we don't know what happened, there could be so many plot twisters in play O_O

    Itachi killed his clan, just to see how far he could go, as he stated. He also didnt give a damn for his clan, coz he didnt believe in the future of them.

    There is no need for a theory to understand that. He is a crazy genius who wants to test his own limit with someone of the same caliber, who is Sasuke.
    That's why he left him alive.

    The reason why he joined Akatsuki, is coz he saw a future with them probably.

    I'm not disagreeing with this though, but I'm just saying maybe the uchiha clan made the first move to assassinate, and took the oppurtunity.

    But, there are alot of possibilities we really don't know enough facts, maybe we will maybe we won't.

    I Like your theory but I think he wants Sasuke to kill him, not tagteam up. I Think Itachi was under orders to kill his family, maybe as a sacrifice to join the akatsuki?

    You didn't read the theory all the way then. He ends up killing everyone because Akatsuki threatens him or Sasuke. So to protect him, he kills everyone. Not cuz he wants to, or because he's simply testing his limits. That's how the theory goes my friend.

    Actually I think that Shisui might really be a Akatsuki member, but I think that reason why Itachi wanted to kill Shisui is because he wanted to be a member of Akatsuki, and of the conditions to join the group, is to kill a a present member. Either way nice theory!!

    Is it better to slay your whole clan, your parents, firends and aqcuantances, make your beloved brother lead a miserous life based on solitude and hatred because he got threatened by Akatsuki?... THATs what i dont buy... and i DID read your theory... i just disagree :p

    That's a really interesting theory, but it's a tad deep for something like this manga though.

    Ok, I see. Well, my reasoning for him being ok with killing everyone in the clan, is because they know what Shisui does. I mean, in anime and manga, wouldn't it make sense for the group that is supposed to be the police force be in with the bad guys somehow. Maybe when an uchiha reaches a certain age, he's told information on Akatsuki and that maybe he or she should join. It happened to Itachi, he's...interesting...sense of justice said "That's not right. We're supposed to be the police force for konoha ninja. And here we are sending out our clan members to be with the bad guys. Well, I'll kill them, because they're worthless, and spare Sasuke because he's innocent."

    Something like that anyway. ^_^
