The Shurikens and Kunais used in this battle were crazy, we all know how skillful Itachi was with the shuriken jutsus. We saw them going all out and trying to put each other in control, the best part was when Sasuke thought he had stabbed Itachi in his heart but then saw him sitting feet away on a throne like the king he is!
The Fight was a visual treat and we saw Itachi using his Susano, during the fight, there were moments when Sasuke looked scared of Itachi. In the end, he was cornered by his susano and scared to die, that’s when we saw that head flick, and Itachi died on the spot. That death wasn’t because of Sasuke, it was because of an underlying disease he had. The Uchiha battle of brothers is one of our top picks in the 20 Best Fights in Naruto Series.

Madara vs Guy during the 4th Great Ninja War was a crazy fight! A mere fighter who wasn’t let enter the Ninja Academy during his youth managed to take on a God like Madara Uchiha! Might Guy be always one of the most feared shinobi from the leaf village, remember when he appeared to save Kakashi and Itachi said to Kisame that we shouldn’t mess with him, and then they fled.

Madara was at his best and almost a god when the battle took place, Guy had to activate all his 8 Gates and went on to harm Madara badly. When he used Night Guy, he knew it would be the last attack and he might die killing Madara, he didn’t hesitate a bit and paid tribute to his father and went on to break Madara’s ribs!

The showdown had begun and it wasn’t going to be a normal one, as both of them possessed the six paths chakra which made them stronger than anyone in the shinobi world.
The battle went on and on and nobody backed down, then they both went for a final powerful attack where Sasuke used Chidori and Naruto his Rasengan.
