Orochimaru is a major antagonist of Naruto series. He is a missing ninja from Konohagakure, who is recognised as one of the most powerful ninjas and known as one of the "Legendary Sannin" (Legendary Three Ninja), which was a title that was given to him and his former team mates, Jiraiya and Tsunade, by Hanzō during the Second Shinobi World War. His main goals are to capture Uchiha Sasuke as his new body to gain possession of the Sharingan and to destroy Konoha.
After a failed attempt to take over Uchiha Sasuke's body, he was absorbed by Sasuke who didn't want to give himself up to a weakened Orochimaru. During Sasuke's later fight with Itachi, as Sasuke was too weak to suppress his chakra, he managed to escape and tried to take over his body once again, however was trapped in an inescapable dream-like realm by the legendary sword of Totsuka used by Uchiha Itachi. He was resurrected by Uchiha Sasuke during the Fourth Shinobi War, who used Anko's cursed seal and a piece of Kabuto's flesh to bring him back. After his resurrection, he reabsorbed the chackra Kabuto stole from him and revealed that he doesn't have enough power to take over Sasuke's body and has no interest in the war.
