It is close to almost impossible for an anime fan to have never heard of Naruto. Naruto is one of the Big Three, the emotional roller coaster, and one of the most loved. This anime is considered an emotion rather than just an anime show. Many people were introduced to anime through this one, so it always stays with them (actually, I am people, people are me, HAHAHAHA).
But please tell me I am not the only one. Naruto is also infamous for having one of the most heartbreaking and mysterious deaths, especially the death of the primary Hokages and their frenemies, any fan would have guessed it till now, yes it is ‘The Ghost of Uchiha’, Madara Uchiha.
Masashi Kishimoto is the author and illustrator of the Japanese manga series Naruto. It follows the tale of youthful ninja Naruto Uzumaki, who aspires to be recognized by his classmates and the Hokage, the head of his village. The narrative is divided into two sections, the first taking place when Naruto was an adolescent and the latter when he was a teenager. The original one-shot novels by Kishimoto that served as the basis for the series are Kishimoto: Karakuri (1995), which won Kishimoto an outstanding experience in the realm of shonen anime.
A young ninja named Naruto Uzumaki possesses a vast power that is concealed within him and has kept him apart from the other members of his tribe. His sole aspiration is to qualify to serve as the Hokage, the far most renowned ninja and head of the village. It appears that Naruto’s only asset is his unwavering commitment to success given his failure to execute even the most fundamental ninja techniques.
With the brilliant Sasuke, the literate Sakura, as well as their team captain Kakashi at his side, Naruto sets out on his mission to become Hokage. However, with outsiders being a danger to the whole hamlet of Hidden Leaf, Naruto learns that to achieve his goals and safeguard his relationships, he must get significantly more powerful.

Who is Madara Uchiha? The Man Who Doesn’t Even Need an Introduction.
The major foe in the Konohagakure series was Madara Uchiha. He was the notable head of the Uchiha clan and was a co-founder of Akatsuki and Konohagakure. He first pretended to be Tobi, a Deidara companion in the Akatsuki, while he was originally presented in the anime. He even served as the Kirigakure’s Mizukage around one point.
The storied head of the Uchiha clan was Madara Uchiha. Together with his adversary and boyhood buddy Hashirama Senju, he established Konohagakure to usher in a peaceful period. However, the two best friends could no longer agree on how to make that peace, so they engaged in a struggle for leadership of the village, resulting in Madara’s passing. But Madara changed the details of his demise and fled to cover while he worked on his schemes.
He gave Obito his information and thoughts just before his death because he couldn’t finish it during his natural life. Decades later, Madara will be brought back to life only to have his schemes thwarted. Eventually, he would come to his senses and make apologies to Hashirama before actually finally returning to the land of nothingness.
In Which Episode and How does Madara Uchiha Die?
In the narrative, Madara truly perishes three times. Madara first perished in a battle with Hashirama. Second, he passed away naturally as a result of aging. He had already been reborn with the Rinne Rebirth Jutsu when he lost contact with Kaguya’s Rabbit Goddess form, causing him to pass away a third time.
In their final conflict, which lasted several days, Hashirama again overpowered Madara and immediately killed him. That was the first time Madara passed away. Hashirama hit Madara in the back, which led to his demise. He passed away, and his body was covertly buried to prevent anyone from finding it. But Madara employed an Izanagi that was scheduled in his right eye. He became capable of returning as a result of compensation for the vision in his right eye.
He managed to cut off a tiny piece of Hashiharama’s flesh during their fight. He then managed to awaken Rinnegan by integrating it with his DNA. He worked with Rinnegan to call the Gedo statue.
He extended his life by employing it until the third ninja battle. He once employed Zetsu to save Obito, whom he later coerced and employed for his own gain. He implanted his Rinnegan in Nagato and gave Obito the reins of his Infinite Tsukuyomi scheme.
He separated himself from the statue because he was getting old and couldn’t be maintained any longer. Therefore, he passed away naturally. And that was the second time Madara passed away.
Using reanimation Jutsu, Kabuto revived him during the Fourth Shinobi World War. He destroyed the Five Kages by himself, severely damaging the united shinobi force in the process. He served as the vehicle for Kaguya Otsutsuki.
All the tailed creatures became loose after she was imprisoned by Naruto and the others. From Madara, they were taken out. Then he passed away. He spoke briefly with the revived Hashirama Senju as he was about to pass away. The third and final time, Madara passed away following his final conversation with his closest buddy Hashirama.
Madara passed away three times, as we have discussed. Thus, Madara passed away three times—once in episode 370, again in episode 346, and finally in episode 474.
