With the Uchiha and the Senju clans forming an alliance, Madara and Hashirama's childhood dream of a village where children were not sent to battle has come to fruition. The village itself would ally with the Land of Fire. Having heard of his elder brother's intentions to choose Madara as the Hokage, Tobirama argues that things are done democratically now and everyone, even the Uchiha, would not see Madara in the same light as Hashirama. Madara brings Hashirama to the Naka Shrine, and tells him that he intends to leave the village. Not understanding Madara's true agenda, Hashirama attempts to persuade him to not leave the village but is unsuccessful, and after leaving Konoha, Madara continues to attack it and destroy his previous dream.
