@tombarbosa If it wasn't for Itachi traumatizing Sasuke then Sasuke wouldn't have become an asshole for the majority of the series. Sasuke was at the high risks of becoming fully evil and getting his body stolen by Orochimaru and if that happend then everyone would have been fucked. Overrated means something is overpraised even though the don't deserve the praise. Kakashi and Levi are amazing characters, they both went through hell yet never became evil, Levi has just too many cringy fangirls. Kirito is a garbage character and I don't know about Lelouch.

I just dislike him, you consider him the best Naruto character though.

@Worriesye  interestingly you put it on the list of characters you don't like, so obviously my comment is a threat to your beliefs about Itachi.

I don't remember denying that he's overrated, he is, but he's not my favorite character, I just cited examples of why he's so beloved, it's true that because of him Sasuke turned into a monster, but if it wasn't Itachi many good things would not happen in the story, his words have not changed the fact that he is an amazing character and a favorite of many, and I know that when a character gets a lot of hate comments it is a sign that he has a lot of fans, and if you agree that he is overrated so you also agree that Levi, Kakashi, Kirito and Lelouch are too.

@tombarbosa "And is the best character in Naruto" That's where you fully dropped the ball. Since he's your favorite character, you'd obviously try to say shit like that.

Let me fulfill you, my dude.

Itachi ain't a Messiah. He didn't fulfill his role till the end. He's a selfish bitch.

1.He told 8 year old Sasuke to kill his best friend after just having massacred the clan, not giving a shit about an innocent kid (Naruto) getting possibly killed.

2.He helped the Akatsuki capturing the Jinchurikis and killing them after extracting the Bijus out of them.

3.He used Tsukuyomi on 8 year old Sasuke, letting him relive the Clan Massacre and seeing his parents getting killed. He then uses Tsukuyomi on him again when Sasuke was 13, not giving a fuck about what could happen to Sasuke's psyche or the possibility of Sasuke becoming evil. HELL HE EVEN ADMITTED HIMSELF LATER ON AFTER COMING BACK WITH EDO TENSEI THAT HIS PLAN WAS STUPID. So yes, Itachi is both overrated as a character and in terms of strength.

many say he is overrated, yes folks, he is overrated but it seems that few understand why he is so beloved, only those who have seen his deeds in history will understand, he is overrated but in a good and deserved way he has fulfilled his role to the end and is the best character of Naruto, if you think he is overrated just because he is Strong is mistaken.
