These are all quite ‘dark’ secrets that only observant viewers can recognize when watching Naruto.
Naruto is a great work, it’s easy to watch it all, but not everyone can do it to understand it all. Accordingly, if you are not observant, you will not be able to know the hidden corners or quite ‘dark’ secrets planted by the author throughout the series.
Let’s ‘dissect’ a few typical things with Game8Z!

Members of the Uchiha clan become stronger every time they lose a loved one
The Sharingan allows members of the Uchiha clan to predict moves, copy other people’s jutsu, and subject their opponents to powerful genjutsu. However, they must endure extreme mental pain to obtain the Sharingan. Therefore, the loss of loved ones becomes an effective way to awaken those eyes.
Furthermore, members of the Uchiha clan endured even more mental pain to make their eyes evolve from Sharingan to Mangekyo Sharingan. Since the Mangekyo Sharingan quickly loses sight over time, the Uchiha can replace his Mangekyo with a relative. Unfortunately, this eye transplant would lead to the death of a family member, causing further emotional pain.
Jinchuriki have incredible power but are discriminated against because of it
From Gaara to Killer Bee, many Jinchuriki have been discriminated against since childhood. Others do not see them as humans but as animals sealed inside them. Jinchuriki keep people safe by trapping beasts inside their bodies, but people still ignore this fact and ostracize them.
Although jinchūriki can harness the chakra of tailed beasts to greatly enhance their fighting abilities, they have difficulty forming relationships with others because everyone fears them. In other words, being a Jinchuriki means having great power but sacrificing relationships with others.
Anbu turns its members into evil people
Anbu members must carry out difficult missions that require them to assassinate others. So, Danzo, a famous leader of the Anbu, tries to remove the emotions of his disciples to integrate them into his organization. Danzo only chooses people who have the ability to become his obedient and cold pawns.
As a result, characters like Sai have difficulty integrating with others because he does not understand human emotions after serving Danzo for many years. Although Anbu has an important role in the village, the damage it causes cannot be ignored.
Indra and Asura did not understand each other, causing future generations to clash
Indra believed that force would keep the world in order, while Asura believed that love would keep peace. The two brothers fought but in the end could not resolve the battle between power and love. Madara and Hashirama repeated the same mistake, as they could not understand themselves as reincarnations of Indra and Asura.
Thus, the war continues and villains like Pain begin to think that the world will never find true peace. Naruto persuaded Sasuke not to sink deeper into the pit of hatred, finally ending the cycle of hatred that had persisted until that point.
