Baru Uchiha was a well-renowned shinobi of the legendary Uchiha clan. He was born during the war-stricken Warring States Period. He was one of the few individuals who were able to awaken his Sharingan at a relatively young age and was also able to awaken Mangekyo Sharingan. He was feared across nations for his fearsome display of strength and mastery of his legendary Dojutsu, the Sharingan. The Uchiha Clan and Senju Clan were mortal enemies, and thus as a result, it is believed that Baru fought multiple battles against the members of the formidable Senju Clan.

The details of Baru's past are rather mysterious. Very little is known about his upbringing or his skills. In the anime, he only made a few brief appearances. He is just a part of the Naruto anime and does not appear or receive any mentions in the Naruto series manga, making him a non-canon character in the series.
Baru and his fellow clansmen encountered an opposing group during the ongoing conflict between shinobi clans that swiftly eliminated Rai Uchiha's allies with a trap. Rai Uchiha, however, ruined the result by giving up one of his eyes to use Izanagi, a forbidden Uchiha clan jutsu that is capable of rewriting reality itself, unique to Sharingan wielders. After the adversaries were vanquished, Rai was assassinated by Baru with his own Izanagi after he challenged him for the position of group leader. However, he was assassinated by his fellow clansmen while celebrating his victory.
Baru had a limited appearance in the series, so not much is known about him. It is stated that Baru was a strong man. However, he became arrogant with power once he unlocked the Mangekyo Sharingan. He became so arrogant that he even killed his fellow clansmen, like Rai Uchiha, to acquire a position of power. It is said that he was one of the Uchiha Clan members who would misuse the Izanagi and sacrifice the light of their eyes for their own selfish gains.
Baru was a young man with black eyes and hair that reached his shoulders. He also possessed the legendary dojutsu, Mangekyo Sharingan, which featured curves next to each of the triangle's sides and had the appearance of a plain triangle. He was dressed in the typical Uchiha clan attire, which had the clan's emblem on the back of the mantle. He additionally wore a diagonal harness with a single pouch above the chest over his right shoulder. This was accompanied by two small equipment pouches on his back and a sword attached to his left hip by a white belt.
Due to his limited appearance in the series, details about the true extent of Baru’s abilities are still a mystery. Despite this, Baru was a jonin, born in an era of war. He was able to awaken the Sharingan at a young age and was also among the few who were capable enough to awaken the Mangekyo Sharingan.
He was born in the Uchiha clan and was among the few who managed to awaken the legendary Dojutsu, the Sharingan. As a member of the formidable Uchiha clan, Baru possessed a strong chakra. With his Sharingan, Baru was capable of recognizing Genjutsu, differentiating between different chakra forms, being able to see the flow of chakra, and many more abilities that came along with it.
Baru was able to use the Uchiha clan's Izanagi technique, an accomplishment that few, even within the powerful Uchiha clan, had accomplished. He also possessed the Mangekyo Sharingan, which featured curves next to each of the triangle's sides and had the appearance of a plain triangle. Given that he was carrying a sword, it is believed that he must at least be proficient in kenjutsu. Unfortunately, this is the extent of his abilities that are known to this day. Due to his minimal appearance in the series, his true potential is still a mystery.
