    Itachi the hypocrite?

    Before Edo Itachi went off to face Kabuto he told Naruto that he trusted him to take care of Sasuke:



    Itachi acted like the evil older brother to deceive Sasuke, as a part of this persona he always told Sasuke to kill his best friend and come before him with the mangekyou.



    One may argue that Itachi would not have known that Naruto was Sasuke's best freind, or would become Sasuke's best friend. However, Itachi finds out Naruto's determination to protect Sasuke before his battle with Sasuke:



    Even after this he criticizes Sasuke for not having the mangekyou:



    I know that Itachi was again putting on an act here, but how did he know that Sasuke wasn't going to to kill Naruto? So he trusts Naruto with saving Sasuke, but always told Sasuke to kill naruto. Hypocrite much?

    You said it yourself, it was all an act. Nothing more to it.

    An act, portrayal, deception, and manipulation.

    Re: Itachi the hypocrite?

    What I don't get is why Itachi put the order to protect Konoha within KA.to activate upon seeing his Mangekyou. Why not on Sasuke's Sharingan?

    Re: Itachi the hypocrite?

    you forget that kishi doesn't plan the whole story out before he started it. you start of with something about itachi and then end with naruto and sasuke?????? but anyways sasuke could have killed naruto but he too was about to fall over unconscious

    Re: Itachi the hypocrite?

    Many of you are misunderstanding my question, yes it was as an act but how did Itachi know Sasuke was'nt going to pursue revenge to the extent that he would kill Naruto for the mangekyou. He trusts Naruto with saving Sasuke but he always told Sasuke to kill him.

    Re: Itachi the hypocrite?

    Itachi's plan was to deceive Sasuke into becoming strong enough to obtain MS/EMS, use it to defend the village and possibly defeat Madara(Tobi at the time).

    He always wanted Sasuke to do the right thing, but knew Sasuke needed to become more powerful than himself in order to accomplish the things Itachi could not. He framed himself and made it look like he massacred everyone just so that he could test his limits, but in actual fact, he wanted to protect Sasuke and make him strong.

    He's not a hypocrite parse, Itachi didn't count on so many things happening, such as Orochimaru stepping in and training Sasuke, or his Amateratsu not affecting Tobi and keeping him away from Sasuke.

    Re: Itachi the hypocrite?

    Irregardless, Itachi felt remorse for killing his parents and ruining Sasuke's life. If anything, his attempt at deception is a way to redeem himself and his clan which he sees Sasuke as the only one who can do it. But like any human, Itachi still hopes Sasuke will change but his mistake was in always treating Sasuke as a little brother instead of an equal.

    he didn't have access to Tobi's Sharingan, but he was able to put a Amaterasu trap for it :/

    Itachi knew that Sasuke would take his eyes to awaken the EMS. That is why he performed the entire act of trying to steal his eyes and explained to him how to get the EMS.

    Re: Itachi the hypocrite?

    You pretty much answered your own question. "How did Itachi know Sasuke wasn't going to kill Naruto?" He didn't, He had no idea Naruto would later become his closest friend. He had no idea of Naruto's resolve. He had no way of knowing to what extent Naruto would go to save his friend. The fight in the end was merely an act to finally die by Sasuke hands.

    I know, but wouldn't it have been easier to do it in Sasuke's Sharingan or regular eyes? That way, the chance of failure would have been significantly decreased.

    Too many hopes and wishes. Too many risks and mistakes. And we know the results of those: Sasuke became a pursuer of hatred and revenge.

    Yeah that's what I'm saying, Itachi took a huge risk with Sasuke.

    Re: Itachi the hypocrite?

    My guess is that Itachi wanted to see if Sasuke actually would give so much into hatred that he would forget his friends to get his revenge. Which he wouldn't have done if it hadn't been for Tobi ( Obito ).

    Re: Itachi the hypocrite?

    Not to mention he lectures Naruto on the power of friends, then when Sasuke finds him, HE STILL TRIES TO ABANDON HIS DESPERATE DEPRIVED BROTHER and attempts to solo. Despite people saying Itachi soloed Kabuto, it was Sasuke who stayed by his side and made the defeat possible. Itachi owed so much to Sasuke, but he never came through. At least Itachi admitted he should have told Sasuke the truth that night rather then mind-raping him. http://www.mangahere.com/manga/naruto/v60/c590/15.html
