Kakashi Hatake : Konoha’s Most Famous Ninja

Kakashi Hatake (Hatake Kakashi) is a shinobi from the Hatake clan of Konohagakure.

Known as Kakashi of the Sharingan (, Sharingan no Kakashi), he is one of Konoha’s most brilliant ninja, and despite his dread of responsibility, he is frequently sought out for advice and leadership.

Kakashi emphasises the importance of teamwork to his Team 7 pupils; he learned this concept, along with the Sharingan, from his boyhood friend Obito Uchiha.

Kakashi was reared by his father, Sakumo, during his early years because his mother died while he was quite young.nyaruto kakashi

Sakumo was renowned throughout the shinobi world for saving Konoha on at least one occasion, and Kakashi held his father in high regard.

Sakumo made the decision to save the lives of his teammates rather than finish an assignment during one of Sakumo’s missions after Kakashi had enrolled at Konoha’s Ninja Academy.

The mission’s failure had terrible ramifications for the Land of Fire, and many in Konoha, even the teammates he saved, vilified him for failing to fulfil his responsibilities.

Sakumo committed suicide after being humiliated. Following the Shinobi Rules must always take priority, Kakashi concluded after seeing what his father went through and vowing not to make the same mistakes.

Kakashi excelled in the Academy, giving him a reputation as a genius and the best of his generation.

He eventually gained a lot of popularity among his colleagues. With his abilities quickly recognised, Kakashi graduated from the Academy at the top of his class in a single year at the age of five.

He and his classmates, Rin Nohara and Obito, were paired together under the supervision of Minato Namikaze after becoming genin.

Minato handed the team a bell test at their formation in the anime, assigning the three to take the two bells he carried on him.

Minato held back less against Kakashi than against Rin and Obito, so they couldn’t get the bells without working together.

Unfortunately, Kakashi realised this and merely used Obito and Rin to obtain the bells as a means to an end.

Nonetheless, Minato passed them because they worked together to achieve the test’s purpose.

Minato did tell them that they needed to strengthen their collaboration later, which Obito and Rin took to heart, but Kakashi ignored.

Throughout Team Minato’s tenure, they would go on numerous missions, but Kakashi’s strict adherence to the regulations made him difficult to work with.

Obito was constantly at conflicts with Kakashi about this behaviour, since he was already envious of his inherent talent and notoriety.

Kakashi was able to compete in the Chnin Exams alongside his team at the age of six, which he passed by defeating Might Guy and becoming a chnin.

Third World War of the Shinobi

Konoha was eventually drawn into the Third Shinobi World War. Team Minato was tasked with destroying the Kannabi Bridge in Kusagakure in order to cut off Iwagakure’s supply stream as part of the war effort.

Minato was needed on the front lines at the moment, so Kakashi, who had just been promoted to jnin at the age of 18, was put in charge.

Minato and Rin offered him gifts to commemorate his promotion before they left on the expedition; Obito had forgotten to get him anything.

They met Mahiru, an Iwa-scout, shortly after entering Kusa. Kakashi attempted to kill him with his new jutsu, Chidori, but his assault speed made him vulnerable to counter-attacks, causing Minato to intervene, save Kakashi, and kill Mahiru himself.

Minato warned Kakashi not to use the Chidori again before leaving them.

Kakashi, Rin, and Obito made their way deeper into Kusa. Mahiru’s teammates, Kakk and Taiseki, ultimately tracked them down and kidnapped Rin to learn more about their objective.

Obito quickly urged that they save her, but Kakashi declined, saying that it was more necessary to complete the objective than worrying about Rin’s safety. Obito refused to go along with it and set out on his own to save Rin.

Before leaving, he told Kakashi that Sakumo had been a hero and that, while abandoning one’s goal was awful, abandoning one’s colleagues was even worse.

Kakashi began the quest on his alone, but eventually determined that Obito was correct and went to join him.

With his White Light Chakra Sabre, which he inherited from his father, he came just in time to save Obito from Taiseki.

Taiseki went undetected and attempted a sneak attack on Obito. Kakashi shielded him, but his left eye was severely wounded as a result.

Obito summoned his Sharingan at that precise moment and utilised it to dispatch Taiseki.

They then went inside the cave where Rin was being held captive, drove Kakk out, and freed Rin from the genjutsu he had enslaved her with.

Kakk responded by triggering a cave-in, and Kakashi was struck in his blind area and had difficulties evading the falling rocks owing to his wounded eye.

Obito shoved him out of the way before a massive boulder could crush him, trapping him instead.

Unable to escape and knowing his injuries were too severe to survive, Obito decided to offer Kakashi the gift he had forgotten to give him earlier: his Sharingan to replace the eye Kakashi had lost.

Kakashi encountered Kakk after Rin implanted Obito’s Sharingan into him.

Despite the fact that his White Light Chakra Sabre was damaged in the ensuing battle, Kakashi was able to kill Kakk with Chidori, because to the Sharingan’s heightened vision.

He returned to Obito and Rin, but Iwa soldiers arrived shortly after and began restricting the rubble.

Obito requested that Kakashi take Rin away and keep her safe, which Kakashi agreed to do while leaving Obito behind.

As the Iwa-nin encircled them, Kakashi engaged them for as long as he could, fending them off until Minato tracked them down and finished them down.

Minato helped them burn the Kannabi Bridge before accompanying them back to Konoha to mourn Obito’s death.

Despite the fact that Kakashi had no family ties to the Uchiha clan, Fugaku Uchiha, the Uchiha chief, chose to honour Obito’s last deeds by allowing Kakashi to keep his Sharingan.

Anbu’s Professional Life

Kakashi fell into a deep despair as a result of losing two teammates in such a short period of time, his role in Rin’s death, and his failure to honour Obito’s last request by protecting her.

Many fans of the anime felt he killed Rin on purpose to keep her from revealing information, giving him the moniker “Friend-Killer Kakashi.”

Many others, particularly in Anbu, thought he would kill a colleague without hesitation if it meant completing the objective.

He’d also avoid acquaintances and old classmates throughout the day, and he’d have nightmares about killing Rin again at night.

By assigning Kakashi to the Anbu, Minato, now the new Hokage, attempted to assist him emerge from the darkness he’d gone into following the deaths of Obito and Rin.

Kakashi excelled in the Anbu, eventually rising to captain and Team Ro’s commander.

His victories, on the other hand, were due to his harsh demeanour and cruelty in battle, indicators that he was still grieving over Rin’s death.

As a result, Minato adopted a new strategy: he assigned Kakashi to defend Minato’s pregnant wife, Kushina Uzumaki.

Kakashi faithfully carried out his duty, keeping an eye on Kushina whenever she left the house.

During his free time, he would pay a visit to Rin’s grave and Obito’s inscription to express his sorrow and to let them know how life had been without them.

Kakashi and many of Konoha’s other young ninja were banned from assisting in the defence of the village during the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox’s attack, instead being held within a barrier to keep them safe.

Minato and Kushina were killed in the process of saving the hamlet from the Nine-Tails.

Danz Shimura then addressed a distraught young Kakashi Hatake, explaining that it was Hiruzen Sarutobi’s orders for the children, including high-ranking ninja like Kakashi, not to assist in the war against the Nine-Tails, preventing Kakashi from maybe saving his sensei and the man’s wife.

After persuading an emotional Kakashi that the Third was not in the village’s best interests, Kakashi volunteered to join Danz’s Root division and spy on the Hokage for him.

Kakashi met another Root member dubbed “Kinoe” who could utilise Wood Release on a mission.

Knowing that Wood Release was exclusive to the First Hokage, Kakashi broke into the Hokage Residence to learn more about this strange phenomenon.

The Third apprehended him, but provided him the knowledge he needed: Konoha had previously attempted to reproduce the Wood Release powers, but had abandoned the research due to the death of too many test victims.

The Third then speculated that if the research had been effective, the Nine-Tails might have been defeated and Minato saved.

After meeting with the Third, Kakashi realised that the Third was not the ineffective, passionless leader Danz had painted him as. Danz had also failed to employ Kinoe to thwart the Nine-Tails’ attack.

Realizing he had chosen the wrong side, Kakashi informed the Third of Danz’s plot to assassinate him and personally brought out the assassins the next day, among them was Kinoe.

Kakashi easily defeated him, but chose to spare his life in the hopes of turning him into a useful friend in the future.

After that, Kakashi attempted to resign from the Anbu for acting against the Hokage, but the Third argued that Kakashi’s service was vital and appointed him as his right-hand man.

Kakashi supplied a clue while investigating a string of disappearances, and it was determined that Orochimaru was behind the Wood Release research that generated Kinoe.

When the Third Hokage failed to catch Orochimaru, Kakashi assaulted him, but he was paralysed by Orochimaru’s deadly intent, and Orochimaru escaped.

Once he regained his calm, Kakashi pursued him, but was apprehended by the Iburi clan, who were devoted to Orochimaru. Kinoe, their supporter, persuaded them to allow him to question Kakashi.

When Kinoe was alone, he revealed that Danz was plotting his own revenge on Orochimaru, and with the help of Yukimi, he assisted Kakashi in escaping.

Because Orochimaru was so important to Kakashi, he planned to employ Yukimi to capture her.

Later, Kakashi revealed that Yukimi’s blood might briefly confer the Iburi clan’s smoke metamorphosis on Orochimaru, allowing him to cross the boundary.

Yukimi sneaked away and returned to the cave after hearing this. Orochimaru eventually slaughtered the majority of the Iburi clan before fleeing once more, but Kakashi, seeing Kinoe’s love with Yukimi as similar to his relationship with Rin, assisted in keeping her safe.

Kakashi made the decision to go without reporting the Iburi or Root’s involvement.

Over the years, Kakashi continued to study Orochimaru, eventually discovering one of his secret labs three years after the latter’s desertion.

Kinoe, who Danz had dispatched to take his Sharingan, attacked him while he was there. Kakashi attempted to persuade him by suggesting that friendship should take precedence over the mission.

When Kinoe accused Kakashi of killing Rin in violation of that creed, Kakashi became outraged and overpowered him in order to bring him before the Third Hokage.

One of Orochimaru’s snake experiments escaped its test tube and attacked the duo before they could flee. Kakashi was able to kill Kinoe while he was being held captive.

The creature’s carcass began producing a deadly vapour while saving Kinoe, which rapidly infected Kakashi.

Kinoe rescued Kakashi and, after accepting Kakashi’s words, gave him an antidote and decided to forsake his objective, leaving Kakashi a message.

When Kakashi awoke, he knew Danz would punish Kinoe for his disobedience, so he sought the Third’s assistance.

Kakashi broke into Root headquarters with the Third’s authorization and stopped Danz from placing a cursed seal to Kinoe.

The Third appeared as Root forces surrounded them, personally authorising Kakashi’s actions and negotiating Kinoe’s release from Root.

Kinoe has been admitted to Team Ro by Kakashi, who has given her the new pseudonym “Tenz.”

Itachi Uchiha was added to Team Ro two years later. At one point, Kakashi and Itachi were tasked with observing a conference between Konoha and the Land of Woods.

When the Praj Group of the Land of Woods attempted to betray the Konoha forces, Kakashi and Itachi intervened and defeated them.

Although Kakashi admired Itachi’s ability, he cautioned him against his ruthlessness and taught him to value friendship.

Itachi subsequently asked Kakashi if demands from deceased friends should be honoured, to which Kakashi replied that they should.

Itachi was later demoted from Team Ro, and Ygao Uzuki took his place.

Team Ro was dispatched to the Uchiha clan’s compound to put down a developing revolt, only to discover the whole clan had been murdered.

When it was revealed that Itachi was to blame and that he had murdered his best friend, Shisui Uchiha, for power, Kakashi bemoaned his failure to have had a stronger impact on Itachi.

The Third Hokage believed that people with good hearts did not belong in the Anbu as a result of what happened to Itachi.

He congratulated Kakashi for his years of service and relieved him of his responsibilities, returning him to the regular military.

He was in charge of various teams of Academy graduates over the years, but none of them ever displayed the teamwork he valued so highly.

In the anime, he began to wonder if his own techniques were too severe, but his faith was renewed when he saw how his former underlings, whom he had previously failed, succeeded as a result of his teachings.

Personality – Kakashi Hatake

Kakashi has been self-assured and autonomous since boyhood, bordering on arrogant and condescending at times.

Despite this, Kakashi was extremely perceptive and intuitive, recognising the situation for what it was right away.

Obeying his father’s death, Kakashi grew more harsh, aloof, and cold toward others, strictly following all rules, chastising those who disregarded them, and willing to abandon his comrades to complete missions.

As an adult, Kakashi usually has a laid-back, even bored demeanour, and is not easily agitated by anything or anyone.

Despite his developing ninja fame and prowess, Kakashi has remained humble about his abilities and has showed no symptoms of hubris.

He’s always late, showing up when it’s convenient for him, making up explanations that no one believes, and then departing for the same reasons.

Though Kakashi would like others to assume that this is how he normally acts, he only does so when the situation isn’t critical.

In reality, Kakashi is a solitary and matter-of-fact individual. Kakashi is still as apathetic as he was when he was younger, frequently speaking directly about delicate matters and occasionally ignoring his classmates as he passes by.

He spends the most of his free time alone, visiting Rin Nohara’s grave or the Memorial Stone on which Obito Uchiha’s name is etched.

He informs them about his life, current events in Konoha, and other people they knew, but largely he expresses his grief that they are unable to be with him or that their deaths were caused by him.

Kakashi suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder when Rin died in the anime, experiencing nightmares about her death and being unhappy whenever others referenced her.

Kakashi eventually accepts that Rin decided to die, and his remorse is now focused on his broken commitment to Obito to keep Rin safe.

This truth makes Obito’s apparent death weigh even more on him, increasing his guilt about his personality even hours before Obito allegedly died.

Kakashi believes that if he had cared as much about collaboration and friendship as Obito did, Obito’s “death” may have been avoided.

Minato persuaded Kakashi to join the Anbu in the hopes of alleviating his suffering. Kakashi, on the other hand, had a reputation for being cold-blooded during his time in the Anbu.

Kakashi was severely affected by Obito’s apparent death. More specifically, he became committed to teamwork and always prioritises teammates’ well-being over the mission’s:

He believes that goals can be achieved more effectively together, and he believes that asking for help when he needs it, providing help when it is requested of him, and praising allies when they deserve it are all examples of this.

The only thing that can make Kakashi abandon his generally stoic demeanour and attack without mercy or his usual sense of sportsmanship is to mistreat one’s teammates.

Despite the high failure rate, he agrees with Kakashi’s decision to require it of his prospective students.

Throughout Part II, Kakashi grows fond of everyone of Team 7’s members, including Sasuke Uchiha, to the point that he blames himself for Sasuke’s illegal deeds and his team’s increasing divide over it.

He is hopeful that Sasuke would change his ways, and thanks to his patience, he will be able to witness Team 7 reunited after Part II concludes.

Might Since their initial meeting in the Academy, Guy has viewed Kakashi as his competitor.

Kakashi didn’t think much of Guy at the moment, despite his father’s warning that Guy might one day become stronger than him.

Guy regarded this as a challenge and set out to earn Kakashi’s favour so that he could demonstrate that his perseverance was equal to Kakashi’s innate genius.

Guy’s ambition to destroy his “cool, hip, and trendy” mentality was fueled by Kakashi’s disinterest when Guy suggested contests to see how their abilities compared.

Kakashi’s score at the start of Part I is 50 wins and 49 defeats, yet the score differential remains the same even when Guy takes the lead; considering their competitions span from eating contests to Rock, Paper, Scissors, the score isn’t exactly representational of anything.

Guy becomes one of Kakashi’s closest and most dependable friends, and at the end of the Fourth Shinobi World War, Kakashi admits that Guy has surpassed him.

Kakashi continued to work diligently to advance the village in the years following his appointment as Hokage.

At the same time, he maintains that no one should become a ninja without first understanding its significance, especially in times of peace.

Kakashi claims to have numerous hobbies when he first meets his Team 7 students, none of which he chooses to discuss at the time.

He is a recognised enthusiast of the Icha Icha series of novels; he always keeps one with him and reads it on a regular basis, even when conversing with others.

Naruto Uzumaki recognises Icha Icha as one of Kakashi’s few flaws, which he exploits during a bell test by threatening to reveal the ending of the next book in the series, compelling Kakashi to close his eyes and ears and thereby expose himself.

Despite the fact that most of his friends are aware of how much he enjoys Icha Icha, Kakashi appears to be hesitant to share the books with others, to the point that he becomes embarrassed by the allegedly mature content when compelled to read parts aloud.

Kakashi bears a striking likeness to his father, to the point where they are frequently confused.

He has spiky silver hair that is commonly orientated to the left, dark grey eyes (black in some cases), and a comfortable and sleepy demeanour.

His left eye was damaged during the Third Shinobi World War, and the event produced a vertical scar.

Shortly after, the eye was replaced with a Sharingan, which he hides behind his forehead protector when not in use.

Kakashi returned to wearing his forehead protector balanced above his forehead after Naruto restored his original eye during the Fourth Shinobi World War.

He has worn a mask that covers most of his face since early childhood and wears it almost constantly.

Even his ninken have only seen his face a few times, and most of them have forgotten what he looks like when he’s not wearing the mask.

He has a narrow jaw-line and a beauty mark under the left corner of his mouth when he shows his entire face.

Teuchi and Ayame’s reactions to seeing his face indicate that he is generally regarded as attractive.

For the majority of Parts I and II, Kakashi is dressed in Konoha’s standard infantry uniform: a flak jacket, dark blue pants, and a long-sleeve shirt.

He’s also seen with a chain necklace underneath fingerless gloves with metal plates on the backhand.

With the exception of a red armband on his left bicep, boots instead of sandals, and Konoha’s new flak jacket, his look stays mostly unchanged following the Fourth Shinobi World War.

The kanji “” (literally “Six Fire”) is written on the back, indicating his position as Hokage.

For formal occasions, he dons the traditional Hokage headgear and haori, as well as a red, full-length kimono laced with a white sash.

The kanji signifying Sixth Hokage (, Rokudaime Hokage, literally meaning: Sixth Fire Shadow) is written vertically on the back of Kakashi’s robe.

He went from a knotted to a modern elasticized forehead protection.

Prior to Part I, Kakashi wore a variety of costumes. He donned a long-sleeved anchor-grey shirt with a zipper, a green scarf, and slate-colored shorts to the academy.

He was also wearing blue sandals, which he had previously worn during the Third Shinobi World War.

He wore a black T-shirt with white stripes down the middle of the sleeves, additional sleeves over his arms, metal arm protectors, leather straps around his back and chest, and dark pants during the Third Shinobi World War.

His White Light Chakra Sabre was kept in a little holder in the middle of his back before it was destroyed.

He wore a plain blue suit with a grey flak jacket, strapped up shoes, and arm protectors that went up to his elbows during his Anbu career.

He donned a similar suit with segmented gauntlets and bandages over his calves while he wasn’t on duty as an Anbu.

Around the eyes, sides, and mouth of his fox mask were red and black patterns.

His characteristic tattoo like a red flame on his left deltoid is a holdover from his time as an Anbu.

He takes off his forehead protection and mask when posing as “Sukea.”

Instead, he sports a shaggy greyish-brown wig, grey-colored contact lenses, and purple eye makeup and purple patches beneath his eyes to hide his scar.

He usually wears grey jeans and a big green trench coat with a purple scarf.

Abilities | Kakashi Hatake

Kakashi is one of the most powerful ninja Konohagakure has ever created, and numerous high-level ninja have recognised him on sight.

Kakashi was a prodigy who shown exceptional skill from an early age, as evidenced by his swift climb through the ninja ranks.

His abilities are estimated to be comparable to those of an entire country.

He outmanoeuvred Itachi Uchiha (despite not being able to wield his Mangeky Sharingan at the time), battled Kisame Hoshigaki and Kakuzu to a halt, and was labelled a big threat by Pain.

Kakashi’s combat prowess continued to improve after Kaguya’s defeat, despite the loss of his Sharingan, due to the fact that he no longer needed to passively burn chakra because he couldn’t deactivate it like a Uchiha.

Kakashi was able to pressurise Koji Kashin, one of Kara’s most powerful Inners, into retreating.

In general, Kakashi is extremely versatile, possessing advanced proficiency in a wide range of skills, including mastery of all three main ninja skills; Naruto Uzumaki claims that Kakashi is smarter than Shikamaru Nara, has a better sense of smell than Kiba Inuzuka, is more adept with the Sharingan than Sasuke Uchiha, and has better taijutsu skill than Rock Lee, all of whom are well-known for.

Kakashi’s genjutsu prowess allows him to deploy basic techniques for intimidation and diversion to great success.

Many people predicted Kakashi’s elevation to Hokage position years before it happened because of his combat and tactical prowess.

Kakashi’s greatest strength, according to the Sage of Six Paths, is as a teacher, leader, and friend, all of which were crucial in Kaguya tsutsuki’s downfall.

Physical Prowess and Chakra | Kakashi Hatake

Kakashi’s chakra reserves were ordinary at first, according to him. Each day, he could only utilise the Lightning Cutter four times and Kamui three times.

At the same time, he compensates for it with amazing control, requiring only the bare minimum to perform his technique, which he can even do with just one hand.

However, by Part II, Kakashi’s reserves had grown to a significant amount, as seen by his usage of both techniques repeatedly throughout the Fourth Great Shinobi War’s final battle with only little strain and tiredness.

Later in life, his reserve allowed him to erect and sustain four large communal walls for a few days, as well as use his Purple Electricity on a regular basis.

In close combat, Kakashi’s taijutsu can take a variety of forms. His time in the Anbu has given him the ability to sneak up on foes from behind, undetected by other Anbu.

In addition, his recurring competitions with Might Guy have taught him to attack from the front, hitting with blazing speed and crippling precision to quickly destroy several opponents.

At least one of the Eight Gates can be opened by Kakashi. He is strong enough to wield Kubikiribch with one hand for extended periods of time without being fazed, has quick reflexes to block assaults he can’t see, and has incredible speed to do hand seals at unfathomable speeds.

Ninjutsu | Kakashi Hatake

Kakashi’s ninjutsu skills and knowledge are his primary weapons. He amassed a massive arsenal over the years, thanks in large part to his Sharingan, and is said to have duplicated over a thousand techniques, earning him the moniker “Copy Ninja Kakashi” (, Kop Ninja no Kakashi).

Kakashi can handle practically every circumstance in a variety of ways thanks to his arsenal and years of expertise. He is also skilled in finjutsu, which impresses Orochimaru.

Kakashi has his own pack of ninken that he has raised since they were puppies, and he is shown utilising them during the Third Shinobi World War in the anime.

He can summon one or more of his ninken to gather items, confine targets, or convey messages in the field. He mostly utilises them for tracking, picking up traces, and looking for targets he isn’t sure where to look.

Nature’s Evolution | Kakashi Hatake

All five basic nature transformations, as well as the Yin Release and Yang Release, are available to Kakashi.

He can utilise Water Release even if there isn’t any water nearby, and he can build vast offensive and defensive structures.

He can slip underground for covert attacks or create several complicated walls to shield himself or vast regions from attack with Earth Release.

Kakashi mastered to convert his Earth Release skills into quartz years after the Fourth Shinobi World War.

By absorbing and dissipating opposing techniques, he improves the quality of his techniques, negating its vulnerability to lightning-based nature attacks.

He is pictured launching a gigantic fireball with Fire Release.

Lightning Release is Kakashi’s natural affinity, which he can channel into weaponry to heighten its cutting power.

He devised the Chidori, a gathering of lightning chakra in the hand that can pierce most anything it is propelled into, after failing to infuse the Rasengan with his lightning nature; he once famously split a bolt of lightning with his Chidori, gaining the nickname “Lightning Cutter.”

Lightning hounds that he can manipulate to attack with, lightning clones that paralyse opponents on touch, and lightning cords that can even cut through Tailed Beast Chakra Arms are all examples of this type of skill.

During his time as the Sixth Hokage, he developed a new signature technique called the Lightning Release: Purple Electricity, which allows him to unleash a burst of purple lightning to attack from afar, augment his physical strikes, and release a burst from all directions.

Dōjutsu

Sharingan | Kakashi Hatake

During the Third Shinobi World War, Obito Uchiha gave Kakashi his Sharingan as a replacement for the left eye he’d lost not long before.

In the years since, the Sharingan has become his most recognisable characteristic, earning him the moniker “Kakashi of the Sharingan” (, Sharingan no Kakashi).

Kakashi can use the Sharingan to accurately replicate whatever movement he sees (depending on his physical ability), absorb a greater quantity of visual information, and perform the Sharingan’s vast category of genjutsu.

He can’t deactivate the Sharingan because he isn’t a Uchiha, and it quickly drains his chakra anytime he uses it, leaving him bedridden after prolonged use; as a result, he keeps the eye covered when he isn’t using it to avoid this.

Despite his handicap, Itachi Uchiha has noticed that he has exceptional prowess with the sword.

During the Fourth Shinobi World War, Kakashi loses his Sharingan to Madara Uchiha.

Obito’s spirit briefly returned from the afterlife and occupied Kakashi’s body when he died with both Sharingans, at which time Obito channelled both of his eyes’ djutsu strength into Kakashi, providing full use of both skills.

Due to the loss of his Sharingan during the conflict, he was no longer able to use his signature Lightning Release, as the Sharingan could no longer negate the tunnel vision.

Sharingan Mangeky

When Rin Nohara died, Kakashi received a Mangeky Sharingan. Its design resembles a pinwheel, with three triangles wrapping themselves around the pupil.

He was able to sustain it for almost a decade, despite the fact that he was constantly suffering from its negative effects, such as bleeding eyes and declining vision, with each use.

Kakashi can employ the long-range variety of Kamui with his left Mangeky: he can warp whatever he stares at to Kamui’s dimension by remotely building a barrier around it; later, he learns how to transport himself to the dimension and to a new location from it.

Kakashi originally struggled to correctly aim Kamui and strike his targets.

He has progressed to the point where he can use Kamui on projectiles that are moving quickly.

When he first starts using Kamui, it takes some time to prepare and drains a lot of his chakra each time he uses it.

He also improves his speed, to the point where opponents may not even notice he’s using it.

Intelligence | Kakashi Hatake

Kakashi’s regular combat strategy includes using the Body Replacement Technique and clone techniques to keep himself out of harm’s way while observing an opponent’s talents.

Even when he isn’t using this system of deception and decoys, he is always on the lookout for inexplicable or unexpected events, devising ideas for their causes as they develop and exploiting them if they turn out to be true, which they almost always do.

When Kakashi recognises an opponent’s vulnerability, he can rapidly devise a strategy to exploit it, making effective use of each of his friends’ special abilities.

Such schemes, while frequently complex and unconventional, are usually extremely successful and low-risk, making Kakashi an invaluable leader.

He’s also proven to be a gifted educator, able to accelerate his students’ development by months, if not years, in just weeks using a variety of unique ways.

Team 7, which includes Naruto Uzumaki, Sasuke Uchiha, and Sakura Haruno, is led by Kakashi.

The Third Hokage says that he was chosen for the team to keep a watch on Naruto, the Nine-Tails’ jinchriki, and to help Sasuke adapt with life after the Uchiha Clan Downfall, as depicted in the anime.

Kakashi is unimpressed by Team 7 during his first meeting with them, finding them all to be too self-centered.

He still offers them a bell test, as he has for all of the other teams he’s been assigned to, and instructs them to take one of the two bells he carries.

Before the test officially begins, Naruto launches an attack; Kakashi easily stops him, but is amused nonetheless.

During the test, Kakashi reads Icha Icha Paradise, believing that he won’t require his complete focus or both hands.

Naruto and his shadow clones fail to take a bell, while Sakura is defeated by one of Kakashi’s genjutsu while searching for Sasuke.

Kakashi then goes in search of Sasuke, expecting the same result as Naruto and Sakura, but instead finds Sasuke waiting for him.

When Sasuke uses the Great Fireball Technique, Kakashi is forced to defend, and he must close his copy of Icha Icha, yet he still defeats Sasuke.

After that, Kakashi gathers them and informs them that they have failed, stating that if they had worked together rather than individually, they would have been able to obtain a bell.

They persuade him to give them another chance after lunch, but Kakashi insists on not feeding Naruto.

He discreetly observes them as they eat and notices Sasuke and Sakura feeding Naruto against his orders, despite the fact that they need Naruto to be in peak form if they are to receive a bell.

When Kakashi approaches them, he pretends to be angry, but tells them that they have passed the test for prioritising the team’s well-being over the mission’s objectives.

Naruto believes Team 7 is over-qualified for a number of D-rank assignments that they perform.

He complains to the Third Hokage about it, and he gets a C-rank mission to accompany Tazuna to the Land of Waves.

Kakashi notices they’re being hunted by the Demon Brothers shortly after leaving Konoha.

He appears to be slain by one of the Demon Brothers’ strikes so that he can watch them and intervene if Team 7 can no longer keep them off.

Kakashi confronts Tazuna about why the Demon Brothers were attempting to kill him after restraining them.

Tazuna admits that assassins have been hired to assassinate him in order for him to be unable to create a bridge that will free the Land of Waves from Gat’s oppression.

Despite the fact that Team 7, being just genin, is unqualified for an A-rank job, they decide to assist Tazuna regardless because Tazuna revealed that his country cannot afford an A-rank task.
