Famed for his ability to use puppets in combat, Sasori is one of the most popular characters in the Naruto series. At an early age, he showed a lot of progress in his ability to control puppets. This was his obsession after his parents were killed by Sakumo Hatake, Kakashi’s father, during a battle.
Later, during the Third Great Shinobi World War, every village came to know of Sasori’s abilities. He was able to kill shinobis easily, leaving blood-stained sand every time he fought, and hence, he was called Sasori of the Red Sand. What fans want to know is how this shinobi joined the Akatsuki. Usually, members of the Akatsuki, apart from the founding members, were recruited or approached by an existing member. So, how did Sasori join the clan, and was there any specific reason behind this decision? Let’s examine the possible explanations that the Naruto series has provided. In Naruto, there are a ton of concepts and subplots that have not been explored. Similarly, both the manga and the anime did not provide any information on how Sasori joined the Akatsuki. About 20 years before Sasori was introduced in the series, he became a rogue ninja and left the Village Hidden In the Sand. By the time he left the village, he had turned his entire body into a puppet, except for the core of his body, which was the only human thing in him.
