Sasuke's early childhood, as told over the course of Naruto manga volume twenty-five, was spent living in the shadow of his older brother, Itachi Uchiha. As a natural prodigy of the Uchiha clan, Itachi was the pride of their family. In an effort to win some recognition for himself, Sasuke trained diligently to win some of his parents' attention, though he was never able to surpass the milestones set in place by his brother.As the years went by only Itachi would acknowledge Sasuke's accomplishments and treat him as part of the family, filling the role of a loving older brother. In time, Itachi began to distance himself from the clan and fell out of his family's confidence. Because of this, the Uchiha began to look to Sasuke as the new future for the clan, and he finally began to receive the attention he had craved.

It is not until after Itachi's death that he learns the truth surrounding the massacre of the Uchiha: that it was all done for Sasuke's good.
