2. Suigetsu: Suigetsu was Itachi's Genin partner. Their companionship was invaluable for Itachi's personal growth and understanding of life.
3. Uchiha Shisui: Shisui greatly influenced Itachi's life. He acted as an older brother, a friend, and a teacher to Itachi. Shisui was the only person who truly understood Itachi and his self-deceptive nature. He entrusted Itachi with his Mangekyou Sharingan and the power of Izanami.
4. Uchiha Obito: Disguised as Uchiha Madara, Obito initially killed Itachi's teammate, Izumi Uchiha. This triggered Itachi's awakening of the Mangekyou Sharingan.
