Obito grew up not knowing who his parents were, leading to him dream of one day becoming Hokageso that the people of the village would acknowledge his existence.[6] To that end he enrolled in Konoha's Ninja Academy, but he arrived late for the initiation ceremony. While most of his class ignored him, he was greeted warmly by Rin Nohara. Another of his classmates, Kakashi Hatake, berated Obito for his tardiness and would continue to do so throughout their time in the Academy. Despite Obito's many attempts to get the better of Kakashi, he never succeeded. After finally graduating some years later, Obito, Rin, and Kakashi were placed on a team under the leadership of Minato Namikaze.[7]

Obito's year group

Obito Uchiha (うちはオビト, Uchiha Obito) was a member of Konohagakure's Uchiha clan. He was believed to have died during the Third Shinobi World War, his only surviving legacy being the Sharingan he gave to his team-mate, Kakashi Hatake. In truth, Obito was saved from death and trained by Madara Uchiha, but the events of the war left Obito disillusioned with the world, and he sought to replace it with a new one. Using the aliases of Tobi (トビ, Tobi) and Madara Uchiha, Obito manipulated Akatsuki from the shadows to further his plans, eventually going public with them and in the process starting the Fourth Shinobi World War. He had a change of heart towards the war's conclusion, however, and ended up sacrificing his life to save the very world he sought to replace.
