Among the countless character we can find in the world of Naruto, Sasuke Uchiha is certainly one of the most beloved by the majority of the fans.
Despite this and despite the fact that almost everybody of us knows a lot of things about this incredible character, today I’m here to introduce you the 6 information that (probably) very few people know about him.
In Kishimoto’s original conception of the Naruto series, Sasuke shouldn’t have existed; in the end, he was created thanks to a director of the story who told Kishimoto that an antagonist should have made the manga better and also it should have brought more easily to a good conclusion.
Sasuke was named after Sasuke Sarutobi, who was the 3rd Hokage Hiruzen Sarutobi’s father.
Kishimoto created the character of Sasuke thinking about the character of another anime: Hiei from Yu Yu Hakusho; for this reason Sasuke is the character that Kishimoto finds more difficult to drawn, since he didn’t come up by his own mind, but he has been created starting from an already existing idea.
The Uchiha Clan is named after their symbol, which is called “uchiwa” and which is just another way of pronouncing the world “Uchiha” written in kanji; in addition, it is an object usually used to fuel the fire and, as we know, the fire is the main natural chakra transformation element among the members of the Uchiha Clan.
Sasuke usually doesn’t address almost anyone with honorifics (“-san”, “-sama”, “-sensei” etc.), apart from his brother Itachi and, when they still were alive, the members of the Uchiha Clan.
Sasuke is considered as ambidextrous, since he punches and he uses the Chidori with his left arm, while he wields his sword with his right arm, but when during the 4th Great Shinobi War Hagoromo asked him to raise his dominant arm, he raised the left one, so that we can consider him as an ambidextrous who considers himself as a lefty.
