No offense to the Otsutsuki clan, but the man sitting at the peak of all the great villains of Narutoverse is an Uchiha. Yes, I am talking about Madara Uchiha, the man who wiped the entire Allied Shinobi force single-handedly. He was a storybook of his own, and each one of Madara Uchiha’s quotes was bitter truths of the world that we try not to accept.
From Zabuza Momochi to Isshiki Otsutsuki, the series had some of the finest villains of the anime world. Yet, Madara Uchiha is miles ahead of anyone else we have seen in the series so far. He may not be the strongest one, but he is such a well-written character that his mere presence is enough to fill anyone’s heart with heaviness. Here, we have brought together 10 Madara Uchiha quotes that describe the messed-up world we live in.
1. “Talking about peace whilst spilling blood, it’s something that only humans can do.”
Being one of the longest living shinobi to ever exist, Madara knew the ins and outs of the human heart. He knew exactly how to stain the purest of hears with seeds of hatred. In his years of conquest, he manipulated many abled shinobis not just by his Sharingan but also with his words.
2. “Weakness of any kind completely revokes me.”
Madara had always been a prodigy, even among the Uchihas. It won’t be too wrong to consider him the strongest Uchiha of all time. He couldn’t stand weakness and never missed an opportunity to show people how incompetent they were. Not even the five Kages could earn his respect after teaming up against him. The only person whom he ever admired was Hashirama Senju himself.
3.”Would you consider dying together “Teamwork” as well?”
Forget about teamwork; even full-fetched armies fell short before Madara Uchiha’s god-like powers. Tricks like teamwork are completely useless after you reach a certain power gap with your opponent. Be it alone or with your battalion, facing Madara in a fight is just suicide.
4.”The concept of hope is nothing more than giving up. A word that holds no true meaning.”
Hope is the trap that Madara fell for again and again. He ‘hoped’ that arch-rivals like the Senjus and Uchiha could move past their bloody history and build a village together. However, Tobirama’s intolerant and discriminative methods proved him wrong every time.
5.”People cannot show each other their true feelings. Fear, suspicion, and resentment never subside.”
This is one of the few Madara Uchiha quotes that he must have dedicated to himself. While establishing the Konoha village, the people accepted Hashirama for who he was but were always suspicious of Madara. He tried to have to change of heart, but everyone’s unnecessary resentment didn’t let me do so.
6.”Wake up to reality! Nothing ever goes as planned in this world. The longer you live, the more you realize that in this reality, only pain, suffering, and futility exist.”
These were the gloomy words that woke Obito up after being crushed under the rock. This is how Madara started brainwashing a boy who dreamt of becoming Hokage into a genocide committing criminal. Rin’s death was the trigger that convinced Obito everything Madara had been telling him all along.
7. “They’re two sides of the same coin… to protect something… another must be sacrificed.”
Idealistic society is something that Madara Uchiha didn’t believe in, and all his quotes reflect the same theme. He believed that to protect something, something else ought to be sacrificed. For example, he aimed at attaining world peace at the cost of everyone’s free will (through Infinite Tsukuyomi).
8. “In this world, wherever there is light – there are also shadows. As long as the concept of victors, the vanquished will also exist. The selfish desire of wanting to maintain peace causes wars and hatred is born to protect love.”
Madara explained his concept of light and darkness quite a few times in the entire series, and this is the quote that stirred my heart the most. See, no one has seen more wars than Madara. He was well aware that as long as there’s a winner, there will be a loser too. A war for peace is nothing but an oxymoron that cannot be achieved.
9.” When you fall in love, you love with all that you’ve got. You must learn to bear anger, hatred, keep your ego and attitude aside and handle things with care, calmness, and love.”
Like any other legendary Uchiha, Madara was once a passionate lover. He loved his family, his clan, and even his best friend come to rival, Hashirama Senju. Things didn’t go as he had planned, and soon, his passionate love towards everything that mattered to him turned into flames of hatred.
10.”Human beings are nothing but a medium of the general process of carrying out life. They do want to live in peace but want to win it over by war because ultimately, victory is what brings them peace.”
Winning a war can be precisely defined as imposing someone’s definition of peace upon everyone else. Accepting this as a reality, Madara tried attaining world peace by magically transferring everyone into a dream world, where they live the life they always wanted.
