Top 10 Worst Things Sasuke Has Done

Wait he’s supposed to be Naruto’s best friend?! Welcome to WatchMojo and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the top 10 worst things Sasuke has done.

For this list, we’ll be looking at some of the worst misdeeds perpetrated by Sasuke Uchiha from the “Naruto” franchise. Because many of these actions affect the plot, there will be spoilers for those who aren’t caught up.

#10: Didn’t Attend Naruto’s Wedding


Sasuke is one of Naruto’s best friends, and Naruto is probably the closest thing Sasuke has to a friend too. So when the knuckleheaded ninja finally gets married to Hinata, it’s quite the slight when Sasuke isn’t there for Naruto on his big day. Instead of attending his friend’s wedding, Sasuke sends a message... via a hawk. Now, we’ll grant that Sasuke isn’t exactly everyone’s favorite person in the village at this point in the story, and some foreign visitors would probably be angry with his presence, but when has diplomacy ever been the concern of either of them?

#9: Tried to Capture Killer B


Upon allying with the rogue ninja organization, Akatsuki, Sasuke and his crew are charged with capturing Killer B, the host of the Eight Tailed Beast. While he ultimately does not succeed, the fact that he’s trying to capture someone with the intent of killing them via tailed the tailed beast removal technique is no laughing matter. What he does capture however is a tentacle from the beast that B disguised as himself, which is pretty bad in itself since that small portion is more than enough for Obito to summon the Ten Tails during the war later on, which nearly leads to the end of the Shinobi world.

#8: Terrible Husband


Despite his many admirers, Sasuke’s personal issues often leave him withdrawn from his emotions; especially love. So when he and Sakura got married, not a lot changed from when they were kids, only now he seems more distant than ever. He spends years away from home, doesn’t contact her for large stretches of time, and rarely spends time with her when he is in the village. We know expecting romance from a guy whose first date with Sakura only lasted around 2 minutes is a bit much, but you’d think marriage would mean something to the guy.

#7: Attacking the Five Kage Summit


After learning the truth about his brother’s massacre of their entire clan, Sasuke pursues the man he holds responsible: Danzo. As it happens, the self-serving, power-hungry man has been temporarily appointed as the Leaf Village’s Hokage during a summit between the various ninja village’s Kage. In order to get to him, Sasuke infiltrates and attacks the summit; killing several guards and engaging all 5 Kage in combat, though not all at once. That’s like somebody trying to kill every country’s leader at a G8 summit after being caught trying to assassinate one of them!

#6: Tried to Kill Karin


During Sasuke’s aforementioned attempts to assassinate Danzo, he’s aided by his team known as Taka. One of its members is Karin, one of his obsessive admirers who helps him locate Danzo. During Sasuke’s confrontation with the corrupt man, Danzo takes Karin hostage as a last ditch effort. Rather than try to save her, Sasuke stabs Danzo right through Karin. To add insult to injury, he attempts to kill her afterwards, stating she’s “no longer of use” to him. Even if Karin’s no saint herself, Sasuke turning on her like this is still extremely callous.

#5: Tried to Kill Sakura


Sticking to the same arc once again, Sakura finds Sasuke shortly after he stabs Karin. Her intent is to kill the young man she (for some reason) loves, to spare Naruto and everyone else the pain. Sasuke is naturally suspicious of her offer to join him and, after demanding she kill Karin to prove her loyalty, then follows it up by trying to murder her from behind when she hesitates. It’s only the timely intervention of Kakashi that saves Sakura’s life, and Sasuke even makes an attempt on his former teacher’s life to boot! I wonder if Sakura ever fondly looks back and remembers that time her husband tried to murder her.

#4: Plotting the Destruction of the Leaf Village (And Mass Murder)


After Tobi reveals to Sasuke that his brother Itachi massacred their clan to avert a civil war and at the behest of Konoha’s elders, Sasuke is naturally upset. Rather than verify this information for himself, Sasuke trusts a stranger and almost immediately swears vengeance on not only those directly responsible, but the entire Leaf Village. Not only is this exactly the kind of thing Itachi sacrificed everything to stop, but it’s also Sasuke planning to commit mass murder against the inhabitants of his home village! Yeah, yeah, you can cite his “curse of hatred,” his painful experiences, whatever – this is not moral behavior.

#3: Neglects His Daughter


Just like his neglect of his wife, Sasuke also neglects his daughter, Sarada. The sullen shinobi is absent from her life on mostly self-imposed missions so much so that she has few memories of him. And when they do finally reunite, Sasuke’s first course of action is to almost murder her, all because he doesn’t recognize her! But really, Sarada shouldn’t take it personally! Aside from his own parents, is there anyone close to Sasuke that he hasn’t attempted to kill?

#2: Became a Rogue Ninja and Joined the Village’s Worst Enemy


Sasuke begins the series consumed with hatred for his brother Itachi. Sasuke’s desperation to become stronger leads him to accept an offer of training from Orochimaru, a man who’s already invaded Konoha, gave Sasuke a cursed seal, and was responsible for the Third Hokage’s death. Sasuke betraying his friends and the village is hardly surprising to us now, given everything he’s done since and his general self-centeredness, but back when it first happened, it was a huge deal. His betrayal ended up endangering his classmates who tried to retrieve him and led to many of the headaches and heartbreaks that followed.

#1: His Warped Plot to Change the Shinobi World


Upon saving the world from Kaguya, whose plot led almost everyone to be put into an endless sleep, Sasuke announces his intention to murder the five Kage in their sleep, as well as Naruto and the other Tailed Beasts; blaming them for the state of the world, instead of the villains they just fought a war to defeat. He then plans to shoulder the world’s hatred on himself by becoming the most powerful, hated enemy of everyone; essentially imitating what his brother did to him on a global scale. Because Sasuke turned out so well from that traumatic experience, why wouldn’t he want to inflict the same thing on the whole planet? What a hero!
