Shunshin no Shisui December 4, 2014
Today we will be looking at one of the Konoha’s and Uchiha’s best, Shisui Uchiha. Born into the Uchiha clan, Shisui was noted to be one of the most talented members of the famed clan. He grew up alongside Itachi Uchiha, becoming best friends and forming a brother-like bond. They would regularly train together, having multiple sparring matches. Shisui would also at times help Itachi’s younger brother Sasuke train. At some point in the past, he fought with Ao of Kirigakure who retained an acute memory of Shisui’s chakra colour, as well as the Uchiha’s ability to control others with his Mangekyō Sharingan’s ability.
Itachi was Shisui’s best friend; in fact, Itachi thought of him as a brother. Shisui taught Itachi that “self-sacrifice… a nameless shinobi who protects peace from within its shadow…” was the true mark of a shinobi. Shisui was also very devoted to the clan, which is why the Konoha Military Police Force asked him to spy on Itachi. It is because of this devotion that the police did not believe he could have committed suicide.
Although Shisui was devoted to his clan, he was even more devoted to the well being of his village, a trait his own clan is apparently ignorant of. His devotion to his village was so strong that he never fell victim to the Curse of Hatred when awakening his Sharingan or even his Mangekyō Sharingan. He even went as far as to attempt to put his clan under a genjutsu in order to stop their coup d’état which would lead to civil war. However, this failed when Danzō stole his right eye. Knowing Danzō’s power hungry personality would eventually lead him to steal his left eye as well, he resolved to prevent Danzō from stealing it to stop him from gaining too much power.
With this in mind, he entrusted his left eye to Itachi and told him to protect the village and was able to die with a smile knowing the village would be in good hands despite all he had been through prior to his death. Shisui even went as far as to erase his own existence to prevent his corpse from falling into the wrong hands, which inadvertently prevented him from being reincarnated by Kabuto years later and being forced to fight his own village. According to Itachi, he and Naruto Uzumaki hold similar ideals and goals. Shisui also greatly valued the notion of “family” as seen when he swore to never let the clan’s issues to destroy the relationship between Itachi and Sasuke. He also had a sense of humour, as seen when he enjoyed the difficult situation he put Itachi in when Sasuke argued with Shisui over who is stronger.
Like Itachi, Shisui doesn’t appear to enjoy killing people and prefers to use non-lethal methods whenever possible as shown in his using a genjutsu to scare off Ao’s squad when it was stated he could have killed his entire squad with ease. Shisui also used a genjutsu on Danzō, which would disappear shortly, instead of killing him when the latter tried to steal his eyes.
Shisui have just recently available for shinobies to recruit. True to his nick name, ‘Shunshin no Shisui’, he has highest agility among other ninjas at the beginning, in addition his force is quite high making him one of powerful assaulter you can get .
Also he’s capable of reducing enemy team’s speed and defense while granting his team mate bonus dodge rate and aid rate. Definitely an assaulter that you want him to be on your side when the fight begin
