My thoughts about Kisame and Itachi's relationship | Naruto Forums
to refer the romantic relationship between Itachi Uchiha and Kisame Hoshigaki. and Kisame listens to Itachi's orders and advice on how to handle them. This was the one who (supposedly) defeated Orochimaru, Deidara and Itachi, right? He was 16, sure. But when Itachi and Kisame appeared in. How was Itachi's relationship with Kisame, and did it grow into an actual without lies, which I can't help but think Itachi admired on some level.
Wasn't it wise to trust such a partner's judgements especially in a place like Konoha - his native village? He was willing to explain about his decisions, too, and most of his explanations sounded acceptable. Sure, sometimes it was unpleasant when he made you unable to finish your battles. But it worthed it.
Especially because Kisame was kind of a close combatant. I think if Itachi had been a control freak like Sasori, if he said things like "Just shut up and listen to me", their relationship wouldn't have been the same.
They were genuinely on good terms with each other: I believe both men joined Akatsuki on their own agendas Kisame's profile in DB3 seems to suggest that, saying "There are various motives behind the actions of those assembled in the Akatsuki, but the one whose true intentions are the most unclear would be Kisame.

It sounded derogatory, right? He was so polite to pretty much everyone else, including their opponents. But the only other two people I remember he treated in that "rude" manner were Sasuke and Naruto. He talked to Sasuke in terms of "Sasuke" and "omae" all the time.
But in Naruto's case, he just stopped using honorifics in their last meeting, when he decided that this was the person who was able to save his beloved little brother. For Akatsuki's mission, Kisame travels together with Itachi, but at times he shows unexpected docileness towards him.
Is it from loyalty to the organization and comrades or is it from the fact that Itachi's power surpasses his own? Only he himself knows the truth. He shows a sense of awe for Itachi's ability, and Kisame worries about the welfare of his body Kisame's usual tone is courteous to the point of friendliness.
Especially towards Itachi, before whom he even shows obedience and solicitude. Yes, he liked to mess around with Itachi's emotions. Comments like "Is that alright, Itachi-san?
And that poisonous half-smile. But he was interested in the guy enough to care about his true feelings and his health in the first place. And however convincing that "physically torturing and mind raping his own brother" show was, Kisame knew there was something different.
Even if he was the last Akatsuki member to know Madara was "Tobi" and the real Akatsuki leader? After explaining his motives and the Eye of the Moon Plan to Kisame, he was initially sceptical of the mysterious ninja, but the notion of a "world of truth" enticed him. Kisame eventually joined the Akatsuki and was partnered with Itachi.
Though they initially greeted each other with hostility, they became good partners. The Akatsuki seeking members, approached Deidara to join their organisation. After getting caught in Itachi's genjutsu, Kisame laughed at how close the clueless shinobi came to dying.
After the fight ended, Kisame, Itachi and Sasori succeeded in recruiting Deidara. Personality Kisame killing Fuguki for leaking intel. Kisame loves to fight. He is quite sadistic and demonstrates no hesitation in mutilating his opponents, as seen when he suggested cutting off Naruto Uzumaki 's legs to make him easier to carry and to prevent the latter from escaping on foot. Also, due to being paired with Itachi, Kisame is usually unable to finish or even start his battles with Itachi around because the latter doesn't enjoy fighting as much as Kisame does.
He would often inform his opponents that they "don't know how lucky they are". Kisame also has a deep loathing for Might Guy since their first encounter, with Guy's inability to remember Kisame prior to his death agitating him. Over time, however, Kisame became one of the few members of Akatsuki that got along well with his partner despite the fact they had opposite personalities.
The only common ground between both ninja being that they betrayed those close to them.
My thoughts about Kisame and Itachi's relationship
Kisame was perfectly aware of his weaknesses and shortcomings and is aware Itachi is perfectly capable of compensating for him. As such, he was perfectly loyal to Itachi as he would only take action after being ordered to or after being given permission by him.
While he was excited about fighting Kakashi, he had no complaints about letting Itachi handle him when Itachi pointed out his capabilities and personality were not the best way to handle the situation. He immediately obeyed Itachi's order to capture Kakashi and kill Asuma and Kurenai without any questioning and despite his love for battle, retreated when Itachi ordered him to do so. Despite his pride, Kisame acknowledged Itachi as the stronger and more intelligent of the duo, as was evident by Kisame saying to Itachi that he himself was no match for Jiraiya, but stated that maybe Itachi could go one-on-one with the Sannin.
Kisame's loyalty to Itachi is so great even Zetsu thought he only stayed in Akatsuki because of Itachi and couldn't help but wonder if Kisame would stay with the organisation with Itachi dead. During his last moments and recalling what Itachi said about no one ever truly knows who they are until just before they died, Kisame hoped Itachi also realised who he really was before he died as well. Kisame questioning his place in the world.
Kisame was motivated to help in completing the Eye of the Moon plan because of his own disillusionment with the world he lived in. He never felt as though he had a place or knew who he truly was as he was often ordered to undertake gruesome missions such as killing his own comrades because Fuguki ordered him to protect information above even the lives of his comrades.
This experience caused him to develop a guilt that lasted until just before his death, causing him to believe he was a worthless and terrible person.
This would cause him to warn anyone he works with to be wary of him as he may be forced to kill them one day. Later on, he discovered Fuguki, a man who he respected and trusted, was actually selling intel to their village's enemies. As such, he came to the conclusion that his entire life has been a lie.
Because of this, he was somewhat nihilistic, believing himself and Itachi to be destined to die meaninglessly due to their crime of comrade-killing. It was only with Itachi's advice to the otherwise that Kisame saw, at the end of his life, that he did not die as meaningless as he originally thought he would because he did not waiver from his ideology of protecting information at all costs, even at the cost of his own life.
Kisame had a playful and morbid sense of humour and would often make light of serious situations while sporting a sadistic grin.
