PostedAt: Fri, Jul 16, 2021 11:42 AM

Kakashi Hatake (はたけカカシ, Hatake Kakashi) is a shinobi of Konohagakure's Hatake clan. Known as Kakashi of the Sharingan (写輪眼のカカシ, Sharingan no Kakashi), he is one of Konoha's most talented ninja, regularly looked to for advice and leadership despite his personal dislike of responsibility. To his students on Team 7, Kakashi emphasises the importance of teamwork; he himself received this lesson, along with the Sharingan, from his childhood friend, Obito Uchiha. After the Fourth Shinobi World War, Kakashi becomes Konoha's Sixth Hokage (六代目火影, Rokudaime Hokage, literally meaning: Sixth Fire Shadow).

Kakashi Hatake | Naruto is a very independent and self-confident, at times even appearing arrogant and condescending. Despite that, Kakashi was very perceptive and intuitive, quickly realising the situation for what it was. After his father's death, Kakashi became more stern, aloof and cold toward others, following all the rules to the letter, chastising any who disobeyed them and being willing to abandon his comrades to finish missions..

Kakashi Hatake | Naruto has a strong resemblance to his father, so much so that they are sometimes mistaken for each other. He has spiky silver hair often oriented to his left-side, dark grey eyes (black in several instances), and typically a relaxed and lazy expression. During the Third Shinobi World War, his left eye was damaged, leaving a vertical scar from the injury. The eye was shortly afterwards replaced with a Sharingan, which he covers with his forehead protector when he isn't using it. After his original eye was restored by Naruto during the Fourth Shinobi World War, Kakashi returned to wearing his forehead protector balanced above his forehead. Since early childhood and near-constantly, he wears a mask that prevents most of his face from being visible. Even his ninken have seen his face so sparingly that most of them don't remember what he looks like unmasked. On the few occasions he exposes his full face, he has a narrow jaw-line and a beauty mark under the left corner of his mouth. Overall, he is considered very handsome as seen from Teuchi and Ayame's reaction to seeing his face.


Kakashi Hatake | Naruto Abilities

One of the strongest ninja Konohagakure ever produced, Kakashi has earned recognition on sight by various high-level ninja. A prodigy, Kakashi showcased highly advanced skill from a young age, evidenced by his rapid rise through the ninja ranks. His prowess is said to take on an entire country. The S-Rank members of Akatsuki acknowledge his might; he outmanoeuvred Itachi Uchiha (albeit he couldn't use his Mangekyō Sharingan at the time) fought Kisame Hoshigaki and Kakuzu respectively to a standstill, and deemed a major threat by Pain. Kakashi's combat prowess and leadership skills are so revered, that many foresaw his rise to Hokage status years before it happened. However, the Sage of Six Paths believed Kakashi's greatest strength is as a teacher, leader, and friend, all of which proved vital in Kaguya Ōtsutsuki's defeat. Years after Kaguya's defeat, Kakashi's combat power significantly increased further, even after he lost his Sharingan.

In general, Kakashi is very versatile with advanced proficiency in countless areas including mastery of all three main ninja skills; Naruto Uzumaki says 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, each of whom are well-known for their high capacities in their respective areas. Kakashi's genjutsu prowess is able to use basic techniques to major effect for intimidation and distraction.

Chakra and Physical Prowess

Originally, by his own admission, Kakashi's chakra reserves were average. He could only use the Lightning Cutter four or Kamui three times per day. At the same time, he makes up for it with superb control, requiring no more than the minimum required amount to perform his technique, even able to do so with a single hand. However by Part II, Kakashi's reserves increased to a considerable size, shown when he used both techniques repeatedly during the final battle of the Fourth Great Shinobi war with only minor strain and exhaustion. In later years, his reserve allowed him to create and maintaining four collective massive walls for a few days and casually utilise his Purple Electricity numerous times.

Kakashi's taijutsu can take various approaches in close combat. His time in the Anbu enables him to suddenly approach enemies from behind, unnoticed by even other Anbu. Also, his ongoing competitions with Might Guy make him just as comfortable attacking from the front, striking with blazing speed and debilitating precision to quickly defeat multiple enemies. Kakashi is able to open at least one of the Eight Gates.He is strong enough to wield Kubikiribōchō with one hand for extended periods of time unfazed,has reflexes sharp enough to block attacks he is unable to see, and has immense speed that allows him to perform hand seals at unreadable rates.

Kakashi Hatake | Ninjutsu

Kakashi primarily relies on his great skill and knowledge of ninjutsu. Over the years, due in large part to his Sharingan, he gained a vast arsenal; reputed to have copied over a thousand techniques and which led to his moniker as "Copy Ninja Kakashi" (コピー忍者のカカシ, Kopī Ninja no Kakashi).With this arsenal, combined with years of experience, Kakashi can handle almost any situation in various ways. He is also well-versed in fūinjutsu, impressing Orochimaru.
Kakashi has his own personal pack of ninken, which he raised since they were puppies; in the anime, he is shown using them during the Third Shinobi World War. In the field, he can summon one or more of his ninken to fetch things for him, restrain targets, or deliver messages. More commonly, he uses them for tracking, picking up trails, or seeking out targets he doesn't know where to look for.

⦿ Kakashi Hatake | Nature Transformation

Kakashi can use all five basic nature transformations, as well as the Yin Release and Yang Release. He can use Water Release without a nearby water source, and is able to produce massive offensive, and defensive structures. With Earth Release, he can move underground for sneak attacks or produce multiple intricate walls to defend himself or large areas from attack. Years after the Fourth Shinobi World War, Kakashi learned to convert his Earth Release techniques into quartz, improving their defence by negating its weakness to lightning-based nature attacks. He is shown using Fire Release to launch a massive fireball.

Kakashi's natural affinity is Lightning Release, which he can channel into weaponry to increase its cutting power. After failing to infuse the Rasengan with his lightning nature, he instead created the Chidori, a collection of lightning chakra in the hand that can pierce most targets that it is thrust into; he once famously split a bolt of lightning with his Chidori, earning the name "Lightning Cutter". Other techniques of this nature include lightning hounds that he can manipulate to attack with, lightning clones that paralyses opponents on contact, and lightning cords that are even capable of cutting through Tailed Beast Chakra Arms. By his tenure as the Sixth Hokage, he created a new signature technique; the Lightning Release: Purple Electricity, which allows him to release a surge of purple lightning to produce a variety of effects: attack from afar, augment his physical strikes, and release a burst from all around him.

Kakashi Hatake | Dōjutsu

⦿ Kakashi Hatake | Sharingan

Kakashi received his Sharingan during the Third Shinobi World War from Obito Uchiha, a replacement for the left eye he'd lost shortly beforehand. The Sharingan became his most identifying feature in the years since then, such that he is widely known as "Kakashi of the Sharingan" (写輪眼のカカシ, Sharingan no Kakashi). With the Sharingan, Kakashi can accurately reproduce any movement he sees (his own physical skill permitting), take in a heightened amount of visual information, and perform the Sharingan's broad category of genjutsu. Because he isn't an Uchiha, he can't deactivate the Sharingan and it rapidly drains his chakra whenever he uses it, leaving him bedridden after extended use; as such, he keeps the eye covered when he doesn't need it in order to prevent this. Despite his handicap, he is still noted to have impressive prowess wielding it, as noted by Itachi Uchiha. Kakashi loses his Sharingan during the Fourth Shinobi World War to Madara Uchiha. When Obito died with both his Sharingan, his spirit briefly returned from the afterlife and inhabited Kakashi's body, during which, Obito channelled both his eyes' dōjutsu power into Kakashi, granting full usage of their abilities.

⦿ Kakashi Hatake | Mangekyō Sharingan

Kakashi gained a Mangekyō Sharingan when Rin Nohara died. Its design appears as three triangles wrapping themselves around the pupil, similar to a pinwheel. He was able to maintain it for over a decade, though he was steadily suffering its side-effects with each usage, such as bleeding eyes and deteriorating vision. With his left Mangekyō, Kakashi can use the long-range variant of Kamui: remotely forming a barrier around whatever he looks at to can warp the target to Kamui's dimension; eventually, he learns how to send himself to the dimension and to a new location from it. Kakashi initially had trouble to aim Kamui properly and hit his targets. He improved to the point that he can use Kamui on fast-moving projectiles. When he first starts using Kamui, it requires some amount of preparation and has a huge drain on his chakra each time it is performed. He also becomes able to perform it faster, enough that opponents may not even notice he used it at all.

After Kakashi loses his Sharingan, his body is temporarily inhabited by Obito's spirit, allowing him to use both of Obito's Mangekyō. In addition to the long-range Kamui he'd originally had, he becomes able to use its short-range variant, allowing him to make his body intangible so that attacks phase through him. By combining this ability with his Lightning Cutter, Kakashi can bypass all defences and eliminate the possibility of being countered while attacking. Having a dual Mangekyō, Kakashi can manifest Susanoo, which has been honed it into its "Complete Body" form. It can be used for flight, defend others with its large size, and even have the intangibility of Kamui extended to it. It can manifest either swords or shuriken to aid him in battle, the latter of which can produce Kamui Shuriken in order to warp away whatever they cut. In addition, Kakashi received some of the Six Paths Chakra, allowing him to use the Mangekyō Sharingan and its abilities for repeated and extended use with no effect on his health or eyesight.

I'm Kakashi Hatake. I have no desire to tell you my likes and dislikes… My dreams for the future… Hmm… As for my hobbies… I have lots of hobbies…

In the ninja world, those who break the rules are trash, that's true, but those who abandon their comrades are worse than trash.

Sorry I'm late, I'm afraid I got lost on the path of life.

This place makes me think about the mistakes I've made in the past… and I've made so many of them.

The next generation will always surpass the previous one. It's one of the never-ending cycles in life.

The people from this village are different from your average village. Even if it means dying, there's not a single one of us, who would sell out a comrade.

Regardless of what happened, you did the best you could. I understand that now… you broke the rules for all our sakes - I'm proud of you now…

No matter how far Orochimaru fell, he still loved him… Now I know how the Third Hokage felt.
