One of the most commonly asked question by the anime(especially Naruto fans) fans is, “what is the full extent of Itachi Uchiha power”?
Kishimoto himself stated that “Itachi could beat Madara” Although it was just a rumor still I believe it.
Well, I think if you ask who is your favorite character in Narutoverse most of the people might have the same answer. That it is “Itachi ” obviously.Being an Itachi’s fan we almost love what he has done for the village, his sacrifices, his awesomeness and many other, hard to count since so many are there.
Being a Kekkei Genkai(Bloodline Limit) user and one of the most loveable characters in Naruto.There are many points that are capable of defining what could be the full extent of Itachi Uchiha power.
There are many points and scenes from episodes that show how much Itachi’s power could go up if he was alive.
He awakened his Sharingan at the age of 8 on losing his Tenma during a mission.he had kage level thinking at age of seven -Sarutobi said. This shows the potential of Itachi’s power and agility.Initially had a brilliant ideology, flawless strength, and refined chakra control and a skilled taijutsu’s use
This shows the potential of Itachi how much he could grow if he would have alive.
He eliminated entire Uchiha clan for the sake of Konoha’s village with the help of Obito.(age 13!) to avoid Fugaku’s ill decision of Coup d’état.To eliminate entire Uchiha clan is something beyond the comprehension.
During his fight with Sasuke despite his terminal illness, being out of chakra and almost blind he was able to summon Susanoo faster than the enhanced lightning can strike him. He could have easily taken Sasuke eye’s to gain Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan.
After that maybe with Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan and Ist Hokage cell injected he may be able to activate the rinnegan that might surpass even Madara’s rinnegan.
If you saw Naruto there are many Akatsuki scene that makes him badass.like every time he faces Orochimaru he shuts him down very easily before he could do anything.Shows his power.
Below shows a scene where Orochimaru tried to steal Itachi’s eye but failed miserably.
While his fight with Kabuto he was able to defeat him, even though Kabuto had several countermeasures and prior knowledge of Itachi skills.Where Itachi uses Izanami.This shows that Itachi always keeps something under the sleeve.
