The two partners had an unique system of formations in order to better synchronise with each other. Yahiko (弥彦, Yahiko) is a shinobi from Amegakure and founder of the original Akatsuki. Little is known of their deeds, but they apparently were quite effective together.  Later, gathering many supporters who shared their ideals, Yahiko established the Akatsuki, though Obito claims to have played a role in the group's creation. Yahiko is a supporting minor character in the Naruto series. Alongside his fellow war orphans, Nagato and Konan, he founded and led the Akatsuki in an attempt to bring peace. Studio Pierrot's Settei sheets of Yahiko show that he was 150 cm around the time he was attacked by the Iwa chūnin, and 165 cm when Jiraiya left Amegakure.  Soon, after the death of Chibi, Yahiko and the others eventually encountered Jiraiya, who looked after them and taught them basic ninjutsu. With Obito's surrender, Akatsuki's schemes officially end. About fifteen years after the end of the war, a former test subject of Orochimaru's, Shin, develops a fascination with Itachi and adopts the Uchiha name while plotting to avenge Itachi by killing Sasuke. Yahiko has short spiky hair. Following Yahiko's death, Nagato would turn his body into the Deva Path of his Six Paths of Pain, which he used as the continued public image of Akatsuki's leadership. Orochimaru and Itachi joined for their own reasons, while Kisame and Zetsu joined to secretly ensure the Eye of the Moon Plan.

The two sometimes argue, but it never interferes with their duties: spying, evidence disposal, and resource acquisition. following yahiko's death, nagato would turn his body into the deva path of his six paths of pain, which he used as the continued public image of akatsuki's leadership. Under Nagato, each member of Akatsuki is given one of ten rings, to be worn on a specific finger. The fact that he was seen carrying a large sword in the flashbacks implied that he was skilled in kenjutsu. He concluded that the only way the world would turn away from its constant warfare would be to experience such catastrophic death and destruction that it could never again stomach the idea of conflict. He first sends Kisame to capture B and then sends Taka to attack the Five Kage Summit. If and when the fears abated and conflicts renewed, the kinjutsu would be deployed again, creating small periods of peace in an endless chain of hatred. alongside his fellow war orphans, nagato and konan, he founded and led the akatsuki in an attempt to bring peace. When most of the White Zetsu are defeated and Kabuto is made to end the Impure World Reincarnation, Obito, having no more options, prematurely revives the Ten-Tails. Konan then explained the possible reasons for implementing a code like that which Jiraiya praised her for. His face became also a little pale. The Ame Orphans approach the Sannin to teach them ninjutsu. The rings are apparently important and irreplaceable: when Orochimaru defects he takes his ring with him, and for that reason he is never officially replaced; when Deidara loses the arm that his ring is on, he has greater interest in recovering the ring than the arm itself; Zetsu and Tobi specifically seek out Sasori's ring after his death, needing it for Tobi to replace him. 2.  This also demonstrated his benkei persona where he was a braggart while in his own home, but demonstrated a more reserved demeanour in public.

If it should happen that a plank is turned on to the white side yet the person is in the hideout it could mean that an enemy has transformed into said person and has infiltrated the hideout. He would come to consider this incident … Listening to the results of what would happen from the Eye of the Moon Plan, Yahiko did not trust the masked man, and urged Konan and Nagato to stay away from him. When travelling, members sometimes wear conical straw hats with small ornamental torques and tassels hanging down over their faces, possibly to go unnoticed by the general population as most are S-class criminals.. Deidara pays some deference to Sasori since he's more experienced, but is very disappointed by Sasori's death. Seeing the Akatsuki's ideals becoming a threat to his regime over Amegakure, Hanzō conspired with Danzō Shimura to eliminate the Akatsuki's three leading ninja. Formation A was used when both shinobi attacked individually using whichever ability they preferred, Formation B had Itachi open up with an attack involving genjutsu or shurikenjutsu while Jūzō killed the incapacitated shinobi with his sword, Formation C was a personal request by Jūzō to be killed by Itachi if he would be captured by Kirigakure and Formation D was to be proposed by Itachi but he refused to do so. Nagato as a child.During the Second Great Shinobi World War, Nagato lived with his parents in a village near Amegakure. After hearing his words Konan blushed at him to which Yahiko responded with a perverted smile reminiscent of that of his master's. Deidara, unaware of Tobi's true identity, takes him on as a sort of disciple, instructing him on the ways of the world and how to succeed in Akatsuki. The purpose of the planks was a defence mechanism: if one of them were in the hideout they would simply turn their plank to the red side. Each view themselves as an artist, though has little respect for the other's preferred art form: Sasori believes art is eternal, as in a puppet, while Deidara believes art is fleeting, as in an explosion. After Yahiko's death and under the influence of Obito Uchia, Akatsuki because a Criminal organisation comprised of S-rank missing-nin and is the most wanted group in all the shinobi world. However, the only unused kuji-in kanji, 玄 (gen, "mysterious"), bears a strong resemblance to Zetsu's "gai", suggesting an error. Akatsuki's desire for an end to war attracted many fellow Ame ninja to their cause and, in time, word of their exploits began to travel beyond Amegakure's borders. * (Abilities) As the leader of Akatsuki, and one of the two sides of the Amegakure Civil War, Nagato was an extraordinarily powerful shinobi. In the anime, he and Konan are first sent to capture the Six-Tails, which was captured at some earlier point in the manga. Akatsuki was originally founded by Yahiko during the Third Shinobi World War, alongside his childhood friends Nagato and Konan. Madara Uchiha (うちはマダラ, Uchiha Madara) is a major antagonist of the series.He co-founded Konohagakure, alongside the Senju clan, as leader of the Uchiha clan and later, after his defection; Akatsuki.When first introduced, he poses as Tobi (トビ), Deidara's partner in Akatsuki. Nagato's parents, believing they were going to be killed, attacked the two so that Nagato could escape. Like Naruto, his dream was to be a leader of his village, and he never gave up no matter what. Nagato, grieved by Yahiko's death, came to believe that the world would never willingly consent to peace and that Akatsuki's previously pacifist approaches were therefore futile.  In time, the three were approached by Tobi, who introduced himself as Madara Uchiha. Whereas other teams at least have moments of cooperation, Hidan and Kakuzu actively hate each other: Hidan believes Kakuzu's obsession with money is sacrilegious and Kakuzu desperately wants to kill Hidan because his habits constantly waste Kakuzu's time. Shin uses drastic measures to counter Naruto and Sasuke, such as sending his clones to unsuccessfully kidnap Sasuke's daughter, Sarada Uchiha and forcefully take his wife, Sakura. However, when he was alive, Yahiko had strong "eye for an eye" and "survival of the fittest" philosophies. Following his defeat, Obito undergoes a change of heart, thanks to both Naruto and Kakashi's influence, and Obito attempts to redeem himself by using the Samsara of Heavenly Life Technique to revive everyone he killed during the war. When they were about to leave and flip over their "Hop-In" planks, a ninja squad attacked the hideout creating an explosion which resulted in a hole in the roof which they used to infiltrate the hideout. He then declared that it was time for training to which Yahiko responded to enthusiastically claiming that one day he would get stronger and change the country before running outside. Having mistaken them to be enemy ninja, the Konoha ninja killed his parents. Akatsuki's early fame was owed largely to Yahiko's leadership and his natural charisma, which kept the group united and motivated them to persevere despite the difficulties of their goal. Intending to be the one to show these horrors to the world, Nagato began using the alias "Pain" and formed the Six Paths of Pain, into which he integrated Yahiko's corpse so that he could symbolically continue leading Akatsuki. Kisame is sad after Itachi dies, and Itachi, once reincarnated, displays some regret on learning of Kisame's own death. Over the years, he remained in the shadows, allowing Nagato to stay as Akatsuki's leader while Obito manipulated him towards his desired ends, specifically capturing all nine tailed beasts so that he can restore the Ten-Tails and use it to cast the Infinite Tsukuyomi on the world, ending all conflict by trapping everyone in a dream. Akatsuki was originally founded by Yahiko during the Third Shinobi World War, alongside his childhood friends Nagato and Konan.Orphans of the Second Shinobi World War, the three created Akatsuki as a way to bring peace to their home country of Amegakure, which too often got caught in the crossfire of the Five Great Shinobi Countries' many conflicts. In addition to the control of gravity that is central to the Deva Path's abilities, Yahiko's body is used for many of the miscellaneous techniques that Nagato performs for Akatsuki meetings. This will make countries increasingly dependent on Akatsuki's services, corner the entire market for shinobi. Other than apparently signifying one's membership, the rings seem to have some role in sealing the tailed beasts into the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path, indicating which of the statue's finger the members should stand on. Obito is the founder of the third order of the Akatsuki, having been a disciple of Minato, the Fourth Hokage. Because Nagato is Akatsuki's leader, Konan tends to defer to him, doing as he instructs even when she personally disagrees. As the Deva Path was the body of Yahiko, it had retained all of his physical features from when he was alive, most notably his medium length spiky orange hair. Despite all this, the rings' exact significance is never explained. He composes Akatsuki with numerous clones of himself and seeks to start moving forward with Akatsuki's revival. Shin is soon afterwards betrayed and killed by his clones, who accordingly surrender and are dropped off at the Konoha Orphanage, ending his new Akatsuki before it ever truly begins. Shikamaru Nara believes they are unstoppable so long as they are together. But as a Path of Pain, the Deva Path possessed Nagato's Rinnegan, bore six piercings, a metal bar through each ear, three studs through the side of its upper nose, and one spike stud on each end of the bottom lip.  However, Yahiko eventually accepted Nagato and his dog Chibi into his group. Kakuzu, meanwhile, can launch indiscriminate attacks without needing to worry about Hidan being killed in the crossfire. Angered by how unfair the world was to them, Yahiko declared he woul…  Teams travel the world pursuing Akatsuki's goals, only convening when summoned by Nagato, typically to seal a tailed beast.

The group was first started by Yahiko and his two close friends, Nagato and Konan with the purpose of bringing peace to their war-torn nation, Amegakure. Kabuto offers to bolster Akatsuki's fighting strength with the Impure World Reincarnation, reviving Akatsuki's past members and several other once-notable shinobi. Once Akatsuki recruited its target of ten members, Akatsuki began following a three-step process to achieve this stated objective:. He also wished to become stronger so as to protect Nagato and Konan. He hated the way Amegakure was looked at by the rest of the world, and hated what it had become. After Nagato's Six Paths of Pain are defeated, Naruto convinces him that a bloodless peace is worth pursuing no matter how impossible it may seem. Madara intended Obito to have Nagato revive him in the final stages of the plan, though Obito had no plans to uphold that end of the plan and intended to use Nagato to revive himself should anything happen to him. He also had good leadership skills, as he was respected by all Akatsuki members of his time, and although he viewed Nagato as the bridge of peace, everyone else viewed him to be the person who would lead them to true peace. In Nagato's rule of Amegakure, Konan acts as the "angel" to his "god", communicating his will to Ame's villagers.

It was comprised of four planks, each with one red side and one white which had a frog picture on it. This retcon was put in place to allow an, Despite a maximum of ten members being possible under Nagato's leadership, that number is never reached before Part I; even when Orochimaru was part of the group, they only totalled nine. Yahiko was orphaned during the Second Shinobi World War, forcing him to steal food in order to survive prior to teaming up with a fellow war orphan named Konan. Yahiko could use Water Release to shoot a jet stream of water from his mouth, and in the anime, create pillars of water to protect him. While Nagato goes after the Nine-Tails, Obito sends Taka after the Eight-Tails, the only other remaining tailed beast.

As citizens of Amegakure who had been orphaned by the Second Shinobi World War, the three created Akatsuki as a way to bring peace to their home country, which too often got caught in the crossfire of the Five Great Shinobi Countries' many conflicts. Zetsu is often the only member of Akatsuki other than their partners that members meet in person.

Later in the anime, after Taka joins forces with Akatsuki, Kisame states there are three tailed beasts remaining. When Zetsu shortly afterwards reports Nagato's own death, Obito is deeply agitated by the setbacks, particularity Nagato's betrayal, and increasingly irritated by Naruto's constant thwarting of his plans.

During Shin's attempt to revive the organisation, he is the only individual to wear the robe, as none of his clones wear it. Tobi approached Akatsuki in order to get close to Nagato, whose Rinnegan he needed to complete the Eye of the Moon Plan. However, he is afterwards betrayed by Black Zetsu, who has been scheming for centuries to revive Kaguya Ōtsutsuki, with first Madara, then Obito, and then Akatsuki itself being mere pawns used in pursuit of that goal.

Kaguya is restored using Madara as a medium but, with Obito's and Team 7's efforts, she and Black Zetsu are defeated by Naruto and Sasuke, after which Madara succumbs to having the Tailed Beasts extracted, and the Infinite Tsukuyomi is ended by the combined efforts of Naruto and Sasuke.

It was later desecrated by Tobi who stole Nagato's body. Under Jiraiya's tutelage, he wore a short black shirt robe with green trimmings, dark pants, a black and white belt that he tied in front with mesh armour underneath. With their ranks so diminished and with the Five Great Shinobi Countries finally starting to mobilise against Akatsuki, both because of the attack on Konoha and the botched capture of Killer B, Obito is forced to start taking drastic actions. Once all other major shinobi forces have dissolved, Akatsuki will be able to quickly conquer all the countries of the world.
