Madara Uchiha was the legendary leader of the Uchiha clan. He founded Konohagakure alongside his rival, Hashirama Senju, with the intention of beginning an era of peace. When the two couldn’t agree on how to achieve that peace, they fought for control of the village, a conflict which ended in Madara’s death. Madara, however, rewrote his death and went into hiding to work on his own plans. Unable to complete it in his natural life, he entrusted his knowledge and plans to Obito Uchiha shortly before his actual death. Years later, Madara would be revived, only to see his plans foiled before his final death.
How Did Madara Die During The 4th Great Ninja War
He Died by having the beasts extracted from him during the 4th Great Ninja War. After some time, when the 4th shinobi war started Uchiha Madara was resurrected as an Edo Tensei version by Kabuto. Later, he was revived with the help of Uchiha Obito and Black Zetsu into his prime form (Rinne Tensei). After becoming the Ten-Tails’ jinchuuriki and getting the 3rd eye (Rinnesharingan) he was betrayed by Black Zetsu and was stabbed by him thus becoming a vessel for Kaguya Ootsutsuki. When she was sealed away and all the bijuu’s gained freedom, Madara was on the verge of death. Just a little bit later he passed away leaving everything to Naruto and Sasuke.
What Did Masashi Kishimoto have to say about Madara’s Death?
Kishimoto said that he created a character that is too OP for the Naruto series and that he had to figure out a way to defeat him without any other characters beating him in a straight up battle.
Masashi Kishimoto on Madara’s Different Power Level Forms
Recently in an interview, Kishimoto claimed that Madara had different levels of power as his forms changed and that his most powerful form could beat Ultra-Instinct Goku in a one on one fight due to Madara’s special Abilities.
Kishimoto said back in 2013 that the Original Form of Madara is as Strong as Nappa and not more.
Madara with the Mangekyou Sharingan is another level and he was officially the second strongest Character in Naruto after Hashirama.
When Madara gained the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan, he was still only second best to Hashirama.
Edo Tensei Madara was his reanimation form that had Hashirama Cells embedded in his body which Kishimoto claims was the first time Madara became the Strongest Character in the Naruto Franchise.
Then Madara changed form again to Revived True Madara with One Rinnegan and Hashirama’s Sage Mode. No Characters would stand a chance at this point.
Recently Kishimoto claimed that Madara’s final form: God Madara was too OP for even Goku after Dragonball Super.

God Madara Final Form Abilities:
When Madara was reincarnated, Kabuto Yakushi modified him to be “beyond his physical and combat prime”.
Madara‘s Shadow Clone Technique could create not only Shadow Clones but actual Physical Clones of himself. Due to his Infinite Chakra, he would be able to create an unlimite amount of Clones.
Madara was an adept sensor, being able to detect others’ chakra signature countries away.
Madara could use many weapons, such as giant shuriken, a kama, chains with weights, a kusarigama, and hand-held shuriken.
Madara was able to utilise all five basic nature transformations, as well as Yin–Yang Release.
After transplanting Hashirama’s DNA, which was later augmented further by Kabuto, Madara could then use Wood Release, a mixture of water and earth-natured chakra.
After acquiring the Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan Madara could “stabilise” Susanoo into its Complete Body form, causing it to resemble a tengu with outer armour that was nearly impenetrable.
Madara could use all of the abilities of the Six Paths Technique, such as the Preta Path to absorb chakra and the Deva Path to perform Chibaku Tensei. He could also use the Outer Path to create chakra chains that could restrain all nine tailed beasts. And black receivers for various melee and supplementary purposes.
Madara was able to use the Infinite Tsukuyomi which is a genjutsu that traps the entire world in an illusion, enslaving them in a dream so that their chakra may be drawn upon.
Madara obtained Truth-Seeking Balls that floated behind him in a circular formation, which were comprised of the five basic nature transformations and Yin–Yang Release. The balls could nullify all ninjutsu they came into contact with.
Kishimoto stated that “Chakra (in Naruto) and Ki (in Dragon ball) are two different things and that not all of Madara’s techniques would work on Goku. However the ones that do work will provide him with an ultimate offensive and defensive strategy which no anime character can break”.
