Re: Madara and the 1st were FRIENDS????????????
I think they were. I even think it was a copy of Naruto/Sasuke. The Uchiha was probably a normal person who lost their brother and went insane over it, just like Sasuke. The first hokage probably tried everything to stop him but had no other choice but fighting him to protect the village. I feel sorry for both of them and hope we will hear more about it when Hashirama talks next week.
Similarities to Naruto and Sasuke:
-Madara and Sasuke were both leaf ninja and both uchiha who awakened the sharingan
-both had a brother that they loved and cared about
-both lost their brother
-both went insane and turned evil, awakened more levels of sharingan
-both were probably friends with the good guy (Hashirama/Naruto) who protected the village
-both sets of people fought in the valley of end
-both Hashirama and Naruto were probably influenced to turn against their former friend, Hashirama alot more though (but Naruto too: remember, Jiraiya said 'give him up')
-both uchiha lost their clan and went their own way, left the village
-both uchiha have the same arrogant personality now
-Sasuke wanted to kill the brother that he loved, the brother broke the bond first and made his life hell
-Naruto is not hokage yet but same position to protect the village
-Naruto wants to break the cycle and change destiny, he tries to bring Sasuke back, he is still his friend
-Hashirama probably focussed on hokage duties and gave it up quickly to save Madara
-Hashi and Madara respect each other, Sasuke doesn't respect Naruto
-not sure if they were rivals like Sasuke and Naruto
The story will be tragic, no matter what. That's why I still see chances for tnj.
