When younger, Danzō was a hot-headed and eager ninja with a strong desire to prove himself.
As an adult, Danzō was a calm and collected individual who, like the Root members that
served under him, did not allow his emotions to
surface. Danzō's beliefs differed from those of the Hokage as he felt that the interests of the village
should be placed above all else, even ethics and
morals. Danzō seemed to hate the previous Hokage's beliefs stating those beliefs have
destroyed the village after the Invasion of Pain, despite that he seemed to still care for his
friendship with Hiruzen, asking what he was to
Hiruzen in his final moments. An extremist, Danzō preferred to directly eliminate threats through
assassination and execution rather than
diplomacy and negotiation. Danzō possessed a fanatical adherence to the ideals of a shinobi,
believing they must sacrifice absolutely
everything for the village. Danzō himself feared death, believing he must live in order to help the
world accustom itself to his ideas for peace.

Despite his reputation as a "war hawk", Danzō ultimately sought peace for the ninja world, one
he would achieve by uniting all shinobi forces
under Konoha's control. As such, he sought the
title of Hokage, waiting patiently for decades
before an opportunity arose. To that end, he
worked in the shadows to ensure that this future came to fruition. He used Root to eliminate
potential threats to Konohagakure with or
without the consent of the Hokage and to further
him along the path to achieving that rank, as he
believed he was best prepared for the
"necessary" transition. Because of the nature of his actions, Danzō could not allow the details of what he had done to become public knowledge,
and thus he branded members of Root with cursed seals to prevent them from revealing his secrets.

In spite of his amoral methods, Danzō did have some sense of nobility and honour within him.
He, after a long internal struggle, volunteered to
buy time for his team-mates when they were
younger, though Hiruzen Sarutobi beat him to it. He reprimanded Sasuke for his hatred and
violence against Konoha, saying that it had
wasted both the sacrifice of the Uchiha and
Itachi's own personal sacrifices. Like Hiruzen, he
used the final moments of his life to help Konoha
by trying to take Sasuke and Madara Uchiha with him.

His fellow elders, Homura Mitokado and Koharu Utatane, held Danzō in high regard, and often took his advice when dealing with the politics of
the village. It is unknown how much they know
about his actions.
