Kiyomi Uchiha is a mysterious character from the Naruto Anime Series. She is Sasuke Uchiha’s identical twin sister, as well as Itachi Uchiha’s younger sister. Kiyomi is a kunoichi (female ninja) belonging to the Uchiha clan and was reincorporated into her clan during her childhood after she was exiled at her birth.
Because of the Second Hokage’s decision, the Uchiha clan isolated themselves in their hamlet just outside the village of Konoha. The isolation of the Uchiha clan also gave them military power and made them the police officers in the village. Due to this isolation, the Uchiha are all known to be closely knitted, therefore, they do not have incidences of exile or banishment. However, for every case, there is an exception, and Kiyomi was such an exception because she was said to have been exiled from the village when she was born.
Despite being banished from her clan at childbirth, Kiyomi learned that Itachi had murdered their clan. She then worked just as hard as Sasuke to exact revenge on the Akatsuki organization for the Uchiha Clan Massacre. If you are one of the many fans of the Naruto series who is not very conversant with the Kiyomi character as she is regarded as mysterious, this article highlights what you need to know about Kiyomi Uchiha.
Is Kiyomi Uchiha Sasuke’s Sister?
Kiyomi Uchiha is said to be the twin sister of Sasuke and the third child of Fugaku and Mikoto Uchiha. She lived mostly by herself in isolation after her exile. Although she is not specialized in Medical ninjutsu like most female characters in Konoha, Kiyomi is a strong kunoichi.
The reason behind Kiyomi’s exile is unknown, although her entire clan was killed by Itachi Uchiha, who spared only his younger brother Sasuke who is also her twin brother. Kiyomi was 4 years old when her clan was killed, despite her clan being one of the strongest clans known to ninjas. She had returned from an extra class to find her parents lying in a pool of blood. And when she saw Itachi Uchiha, she swore to take revenge on Itachi and all Akatsuki.
She trained herself while in isolation until she was found by Orochimaru a week after the tragic event. However, she distrusted and escaped from Orochimaru using her skills as a Kunoichi after he planned to put a cursed seal on her.
However, during her time with Orochimaru, she learned how to summon snakes, and as such, she summoned her signature snake called Ren. Ren dutifully follows all Kiyomi’s orders and stays loyal only to Kiyomi and her family.
She hardly spoke to or trusted anyone after the incident with Orochimaru. Due to the trust issue she developed after learning of Orochimaru’s intentions for her, she made sure that she will continue to learn on her own and from her animal friends rather than under the guidance of a master. She was able to access multiple Jutsu without a lot of instruction, showcasing her genius trait and determination for revenge.
Although she continues to attend the academy, she frequently skips classes because she preferred training independently, which is why Naruto and his friends hardly recognize her. Her talent and determination, however, allowed her to succeed, and she then attained the rank of Chuunin in Konoha. Since then, she frequently embarked on missions to further strengthen herself while researching the Akatsuki and their motivations.
She also met Gaara during her time as a kunoichi. When they first met, on a particular operation, the two of them even got into a fight, but it was a deadlock. Although they fought, they both struck up a strong friendship and began to frequently meet and found more ways to connect. She and Gaara developed a relationship as the years went by, especially after the Fourth Great Ninja War.
She also engaged in a fight with Itachi and the Fourth Raikage, pressuring them both with her breakneck speed and Sharingan skills. However, little is known regarding the specifics of their fight because she is a mysterious character.
When it comes to talent, Kiyomi Uchiha can be compared to Sasuke because she is seen as a genius. She is considered to be naturally intelligent like Itachi since she was well educated as a shinobi as a little girl.
She usually has her own goals in mind, especially when she is seeking revenge against the Akatsuki for the death of her tribe. Kiyomi, like her older brothers Sasuke and Itachi, is regarded as a natural prodigy of the Uchiha clan and graduated from the Academy at the top of her class. Kiyomi grew strong enough to combat and even put pressure on Fourth Raikage as well as Itachi and could fight on par with powerful shinobi like Haku and Gaara.
For Kiyomi’s appearance, she is beautiful, with pitch-black eyes, long, straight hair that resembles Sakura’s before she cut it, a thin build, and a slightly shorter height than Sakura. She wears a gray shirt with the Uchiha emblem and a dark gray jacket.
Occasionally she carries a blue backpack when going on missions. She has bandages covering her right elbow and her left arm, wears black capris, and has a weapon pouch on her right thigh. Her legs are further bandaged up until the knees with blue sandals. She also wears a headband/protector on her neck.
Kiyomi Uchiha is a resourceful character who is motivated by her own goals. She is a smart, educated, capable, and skilled young woman. She flaunts her charm and her endearing personality, knowing what to say and how to act to gain the confidence of those around her.
Kiyomi is very intelligent, agile, determined, and able to summon snakes thanks to her access to the Ryuchi cave like Orochimaru. She also fights with blinding speed, is able to reproduce any movement she sees; predicts the movements of her opponents, tracks fast-moving objects, and is very talented in physical combat. However, her self-absorbed nature and preoccupation with her own personal interests can be viewed as a weakness.
Is Kiyomi Uchiha Real?
Unfortunately, the character of Kiyomi Uchiha is not real, despite most of her story being found in parts 1 and 2 of the Naruto series. For example, where she was studying in the Academy, training at a young age under Orochimaru, fighting Haku, gaining a reputation as the deadly Sharingan after fighting an army of ninjas, including her battles against the Fourth Raikage, her fight and relationship with Gaara and then her battle against Itachi before the series time skip.
Kiyomi is a character who was said to be made up by a Deviantart user/ fan who, due to the shortage of Uchiha members, was fond of making up characters for the Uchiha Clan. Because Kiyomi is not a real character, her stories are vague, and her abilities were never explored in full detail till the end of the Naruto series.
Is Kiyomi Uchiha Related to Itachi?
Kiyomi Uchiha is related to Itachi Uchiha. As previously mentioned, she is Itachi’s younger sister. She and Sasuke are twins, and Itachi is their older brother. However, Kiyomi swore to take revenge on Itachi and the Akatsuki organization for the murder of her Uchiha clan.
