Kakashi Hatake é um dos shinobi mais fortes e famosos de Konohagakure. Ele era o professor de Naruto Uzumaki , Sakura Haruno e Sasuke Uchiha , até sua deserção, na parte 1. Na parte 2, Kakashi foi associado com Naruto e Sakura como um companheiro de equipe igual.
Kakashi was born in the village of Konohagakure about fourteen years before the start of the series, as the son of Sakumo Hatake. His mother's history is unknown besides that she died when Kakashi was young. After his father was disgraced following his choice to save his teammates instead of complete his current mission, Sakumo committed suicide following a spell of depression and drop in his skills. This prompted Kakashi to live his life bound by the shinobi code, and he went on to graduate from the academy at age of five in a one year with top honors, becoming a member of a team under Minato Namikaze, the eventual Fourth Hokage, alongside Rin Nohara and Obito Uchiha. At some point Kakashi became the rival of Might Guy, who would regularly challenge him to meaningless contests. Kakashi became a Chunnin at age six after defeating Guy in the final stage of the Chunnin Exams, and later became a Jonin at a remarkably young age. Not long thereafter, during the Third Shinobi World War, Kakashi was assigned to be leader of a mission with his teammates, Rin and Obito, in which they were to destroy Kanabi Bridge, which Iwagakure was using to send troops to Kusagakure. Doing this was to be Konohagakure first big move in the war. En route to the bridge, Rin was captured by a pair of Iwagakure shinobi named Kakko and Taiseki. Though Obito wanted to chase after them and recue her, Kakashi disagreed, determined to continue the mission and not make his father's mistake. However, after Obito left anyway and declared his father a hero, Kakashi had a change of heart, deciding that his father hadn't made a mistake and to help Obito rescue Rin.
Kakashi arrived in time to counter an attack from Taiseki with his father's White Light Chakra Sabre. However, the more experienced Taiseki proved to be too much at first, and blinded Kakashi's left eye with an attack mean't for Obito. The latter then activated his Sharingan, which he then used to protect Kakashi and kill Taiseki. The two found Rin and defeated Kakko, before freeing her, only to be caught ina cave-in caused by Kakko. Obito prevented Kakashi from being caught under a boulder, but ended up crushed beneath one himself. At that point, Obito had Rin transplant his Sharingan into Kakashi's blinded eye and, after he killed Kakko with his new Sharingan and Chidori technique, Kakashi found that nothing could be done to help Obito, and he and Rin fled after Kakashi promised to protect her. With their teacher's help, Kakashi and Rin completed their mission and mourned Obito's supposed death(in truth, he was rescued by Madara Uchiha, who corrupted him and trained him as his apprentice). Some time later, Rin was captured by Kirigakure shinobi and forcibly made into the jinchuriki of the Three-Tails, Isobu, before Kakashi could rescue her. Though she begged Kakashi to kill her, he refused and she jumped in front of his Lightning Cutter when he used it, causing the tearful Kakashi to impaled her through the chest and kill her, unaware that a very much alive Obito was nearby to witness the act. In his despair, Kakashi fell unconscious and Obito slaughtered all the Kirigakure Jonin and Anbu present, but left Kakashi alive, and he was later found by Konohagakure reinforcements. At Rin's death, both Obito and Kakashi awakened the Mangekyo Sharingan.
After the war, Kakashi would begin to visit Obito and Rin's graves, on one visit telling Rin that Minato's son would be born soon, unaware that the corrupted Obito was nearby and overheard him, which allowed him to find the birthplace and ultimately set Kurama, the Nine-Tails free from its jinchuriki, Kushina Uzumaki, and the beast, under Obito control, began to attack Konohagakire. Kakashi and the other younger shinobi, like Might Guy and Kurenai Yuhi, were forbidden by Yuhi's father and the other older shinobi from fighting, as they were the future of the village. Throught the years, Kakashi became world-renowned for his mastery and use of the Sharingan, which he used to copy more than a thousand techniques, earning himself the nicknames "Copy Ninja Kakashi" and "Kakashi of the Sharingan". He eventually joined the Anbu, where he was the mentor of Yamato, whose codename was Tenzo. Though he eventually left, Kakashi still maintained strong relations with the Anbu. He went on to become a teacher to many different teams of Gennin, all of whom he failed due to their lack of ability to work as a team in his eyes. However, Hiruzen Sarutobi, the Third Hokage, stated that he was correct about every single team.
Kakashi made his debut becoming leader of a team of Gennin which was made of Naruto Uzumaki, Sakura Haruno, and Sasuke Uchiha. He told them to meet him at the training grounds the next morning and, after showing up late, gave them their test; to try and take at least one bell from him and be ready to kill to be able to. They all failed, however, as Kakshi easily defeated them all and he expressed his displeasure at this. However, he decided to give them one more chance, instructing them to eat to gain strength and not let Naruto have any for breaking his rules beforehand. Though they disobeyed, kakashi passed the group, as that was what he wanted, for them to act as a team. Their initial missions were very easy and, at Naruto's urgence, Hiruzen Sarutobi, the Third Hokage, ruler of Konohagakure and current commander of the shinobi military, gave them an escort mission to the Land of Waves. Escorting a bridge builder named Tazuna was made more difficult by the intervention of two Missing-nin known as the Demon Brothers of Kirigakure, who Kakashi and Sasuke easily defeated. Later, Zabuza Momochi, an S-rank Missing-nin of Kirigakre and the Demon Brothers' boss, confronted the group. Though Kakashi was trapped in a Water Prison technique, Naruto and Sasuke freed him and he defeated Zabuza with his Sharingan and mastery of Water Release. Though Zabuza was seemingly killed by a Hunter-nin of Kirigakure, Kakashi later revealed he was well alive and recovering from his defeat. Once they finally got Tazuna home, Kakashi decided they would stay and protect him during his bridge building project. They were later confronted by Zabuza, sided by his apprentice, Haku(the imposter Hunter-nin that rescued Zabuza before).
Kakashi took on Zabuza again, while Naruto and Sasuke fought with Haku. After a relatively even fight, Kakashi was shocked to sense Naruto's Nine-Tails chakra and believed the seal trapping the beast was broken. As it wasn't, Kakashi summoned his shinobi hounds and used them to catch Zabuza, who he tried to kill with his Lightning Cutter technique. However, Haku stepped in front of him and save Zabuza. Though Kakashi still had the advantage at first, Gato, Zabuza's employer and a ruthless and powerful man, arrived with a multitude of men to kill everyone. Zabuza. however, after Gato betrayed him, killed him and many others, with Kakashi later scaring the remaining enemies, honoring Zabuza's last request before he died. Kakashi and his team later returned to Konohagakure. Feeling confident in his students, Kakashi later signed them up for the Chunnin Exams, which they steadily progressed through. At the time of the prelimenary rounds, Kakashi watched Sasuke's match and later sealed the Cursed Seal of Hevean Orochimaru branded him with to prevent its use and encountering the man after he arrived and, though a fight nearly ensued, Orochimaru simply left, stating that Sasuke would eventually come to him for power. During the month of preparation Hiruzen gave the prelim winners to prepare for the finals, Kakashi trained Sasuke personally after he got out of the hospital, beforehand defending him from Kabuto Yakushi, Orochimaru's right-hand man. He trained Sasuke to use his Chidori technique together with his Sharingan to help improve his self-worth and value for his comrades, later almost not getting him to the finals in time for his match.
After Orochimaru began his attack on Konohagakure, Kakashi fought together with Might Guy, his rival, as well as as Asuma Sarutobi and Kurenai Yuhi amoung others. He sent Naruto and Sakura out with Shikamaru Nara off with his shinobi hound, Pakkun, to find Sasuke and stop him for pursuing Gaara and his siblings, feeling uneasy about Gaara's strange powers. After he defeated several Otogakure and Sunagakure(this village was fooled into helping by Orochimaru) shinobi and the invasion was thwarted, Kakashi attended the funeral of the Third Hokage, who died fighting Orochimaru, who he managed to cripple. Shortly thereafter, Itachi Uchiha and Kisame Hoshigaki, two S-rank Missing-nin of Konohagakure and Kirigakure, arrived in Konoha and Kakashi sent Kurenai and Asuma to investigate them. He later came to their aid and blocked Kisame's attack, before taking on Itachi. However, the Mangekyo Sharingan user proved too much for Kakashi and defeated him using Tsukuyomi. Before he passed out, Kakashi revealed what he had learned of their organization, Akatsuki, from Jiraiya, one of the legendary Sannin. Itachi decided to take him with them, but as Kisame attempted to kill the others and capture him, Might Guy arrived and repelled him. Itachi and Kisame then fled, unwilling to fight a full-scale battle with the village. Kakashi was left incapacitated until Jiraiya and Naruto brought Tsunade, another Sannin chosen to be Fifth Hokage(the Fourth was long dead), back to Konohagakure,a nd she healed both him and Sasuke, who himself was defeated by Itachi after learning of his presence. Afterwards, He was sent on another mission.
Before setting out on his new mission, Kakashi arrived in time to stop a fight between Sasuke and Naruto, where he was shocked to see that Naruto mastered the Rasengan. After a brief talk with Jiraiya, Kakashi left to go and talk to Sasuke, who he gave a lecture to about the reason he taught him the Chidori and encouraged him to place more value of friendship than revenge. Despite this, however, Kakashi found upon his return to the village that Sasuke had defected with a group of Gennin called the Sound Four, Orochimaru's bodyguards. Declining another mission, Kakashi summoned his shinobi hounds and had them search for a trail. Pakkun found it and they pursued Naruto and Sasuke to the Valley of the End, where Naruto was found unconscious. Believing him dead, Kakashi lamented that he was too late, but after Naruto awoke, became relieved and carried him back to the village, as Sasuke's trail had by then gone cold, leaving Kakashi saddened.. As both of his remaining students then became apprentices of one of the Sannin, with Naruto leaving with Jiraiya for two and a half years of training and Sakura becoming Tsunade's apprentice for the same length of time, Kakashi was able to train and develope his skills considerably during the timeskip.
In part 2, after two and a half years, Naruto and Jiraiya returned and Kakashi met them at Tsunade's office, where Naruto gave him Jiraiya's most recent book(Kakashi's favorite series, Icha Icha). As Tsunade had set it up to where he would be giving his bell test again to test Naruto and Sakura's growth, Kakashi told them to meet him at the training ground later, and left to go read his new book. When he arrived, Kakashi decided to use his Sharingan this time, and while he was formidable opponent, Naruto used his weakness for the Icha Icha series against him by threatening to reveal the book's ending before he could read it. As this threw him off, Naruto and Sakura took the bells, and Tsunade later made them equal team members with Kakashi. When word reached Konohagakure that Gaara, the Fifth Kazekage, had been kidnapped by Akatsuki, a criminal organization of S-rank Missing-nin, Kakashi, Sakura, and Naruto joined Temari, his sister, to rescue him. When they got to Sunagakure, the morning after Sakura saved Gaara's brother, Kankuro's life, Chiyo, an elder of Sunagakure and the grandmother of one of Gaara's kidnappers, joined their group, and they left to pursue the Akatsuki. Along the way, they encountered Itachi Uchiha, Sasuke's brother, who was there to hold them up. Kakashi discounted Chiyo's method of fighting the Sharingan because of Itachi's Mangekyo Sharingan, and after a difficult fight, Naruto managed to strike the Uchiha with his Big Ball Rasengan. After this, Kakashi and the group found that it was only a clone transformed into Itachi, which Chiyo knew to be Yura, a traitor from Sunagakure.
Arriving outside the lair, Kakashi and his team were met by Might Guy and his, who were sent as back up. With their help, the seal on the lair's door was broken, but Guy and his team were caught in booby trap in which they had to defeat perfect clones of themselves, removing the aide they could have provided. Sakura smashed through the door, wherein they found they found Gaara, dead from Shukaku's removal, and his captors, Deidara and Sasori]], Chiyo's grandson. Kakashi and Naruto followed Deidara, leaving Sasori to Chiyo and Sakura, and Kakashi used his Mangekyo Sharingan and Kamui technique against Deidara, managing to tear his arm off. After his ride was disabled, Naruto punched Deidara and Gaara's body was retrieved, but the former, after Guy and his team arrived, seemingly blew himself up, with Kakashi managing to absorb the blast with Kamui. But Deidara made good his escape, and Chiyo afterwards resurrected Gaara by sacrificing her own life. After Gaara was returned home, Kakashi and Guy and their teams returned to Konohagakure. Later hospitalized to recover from using the Mangekyo Sharingan, Kakashi was replaced by a friend of his from the Anbu, Yamato, in Team Kakashi's new mission of capturing Sasori's spy, who he revealed just before he died. However, the mission only ended in failure. Kakashi resumed training with Naruto, attempting to help him learn how use his Wind Release chakra and combine it with his Rasengan. Later, they were informed by Yamato that Asuma Sarutobi had been killed in a battle against Akatsuki.
As Asuma's students wanted revenge, Kakashi decided to lead their team against the Akatsuki pair responsible for Asuma's death. After they found the pair, Hidan and Kakuzu, Kakashi stabbed the latter through the heart after seeing his defensive technique, but as Kakuzu had five hearts, he survived and repelled Kakashi into a tree. Afterwards, a stunned Kakashi, after Kakuz forced four monsters from his body with his remaining extra hearts, was overpowered and nearly killed by the following attack combo attack Hidan and Kakuzu did, but managed to counter a very powerful Lightning Release attack quickly thereafter. As the fight continued to progress, it became clear that for them to win, Kakashi and the others would have to seperate Hidan and Kakuzu, as they were too powerul as a pair to lose. Kakashi handed Shikamaru a capsule of Kakuzu's blood, and the latter caught Hidan in his Shadow Imitation Technique and took him to another location. However, Kakuzu still proved to be very formidable and nearly killed Kakashi, who was luckily saved when Shikamaru made Hidan use his blood for his ritual. However, Kakuzu's Lightning heart monster revived him, and the other two embodied him, causing him to become a monster himself with much greater power. Just before the worst could happen, Naruto and Yamato arrived and countered Kakuzu's attack. Naruto went on to defeat Kakuzu with his new Wind Release: Rasenshuriken technique, the power of which stunned Kakashi, who finished off Kakuzu with his Lightning Cutter technique. Shikamaru had meamwhile defeated and burried Hidan alive, and both team returned to Konohagakure.
After word reached Konoha of Orochimaru's defeat at the hands of Sasuke, Kakshi decided to make an attempt to retrieve Sasuke by formualting his and his friend Kurenai, who was pregnant and absent, teams into a squad of eight capable shinobi and try to fing either Sasuke or Itachi. While Naruto later managed to fing Sasuke with a shadow clone and the group gave chase, Obito Uchiha, Kakashi's corrupted old friend, under the guise of Tobi, appeared and held the group up. After the battle between Sasuke and Itachi was over and the latter was dead, Zetsu informed Obito and the two left to, after which Kakashi and his squad lost Sasuke's trail and were forced to return home. Some time later, Kakshi was present in tsunade's office when Lord Fukusaku, a elder sage toad from Mount Myoboku, informed the entire room that Jiraiya had been killed by the Akatsuki leader, Pain. Naruto left with Fukusaku to train in senjutsu like Jiraiya, and Kakashi prepared for an attack from the Akatsuki. After Pain arrived, kakashi confronted his Deva Path body(he had six) and attempted to defeat it. However, the might of Pain's Rinnegan prevailed and Kakashi was defeated, along with the aide that arrived. He did manage to save Choji Akimichi from Pain's Asura Path, dying in the process due to using the last of his chakra with the Mangekyo Sharingan. In the afterlife, Kakashi reconsiled with his father, Sakumo, before being revived by Nagato(Pain's real name), who had reformed after talking to Naruto. Kakashi found ad carried Naruto back to the village, and complimented Naruto after seeing he had accomplished his goal of making the village accept him.
After word of Sasuke's actions in the Land of Lightning(he had attempted to kidnap Killer B, the Raikage's brother), Kakashi and Yamato agreed to escort him to the Land of Iron, where the Five Kage Summit conference called by the Raikage was to be held, so that Naruto could ask him to forgive Sasuke. Before they left, Kakashi asked Sai, one of his team, to keep their departure as secret from Danzo Shimura, who was acting as Hokage with Tsunade incapacitated. A, the Fourth Raikage, was not willing to do what Naruto begged, and left. As they stayed at a motel, Kakashi and Yamato restrained Obito when he arrived, who told them of the Sage of the Six Paths, the father of all shinobi, as wells as of the truth of Itachi Uchiha, before Kakshi questions his motives, which were that he simply wanted to "become complete", before Obito teleported away. Later, Gaara arrived and told them of Danzo's actiosn at the Summit and of their decision that Kakashi instead be Sixth Hokage. Having earlier been visited by Sakura, who went on after Sasuke to kill him, Kakashi was led by an ink clone of Sai, who tried to bring him to her. however, the clone dispersed when Sakura discarded the real Sai. Despite this, Kakashi found her in time to prevent Sasuke from killing her, and engaged him in battle. As the fight was equal at first, Sasuke used his Susanoo to attack Kakashi, who countered it with his Kamui. However, doing so nearly allowed Sasuke to kill Sakura when she tried to attack him from behind after his eyesight almost faded, with Naruto arriving in just enough time to save her. Kakashi then fought Sasuke, but Naruto haled him to talk to Sasuke, who revealed he killed Danzo. They clashed and cancelled each other out. Obito and Zetsu, his partner, soon arrived, and Kakashi decided to kill him, which was not possible. Obito teleported him and Sasuke away.
Taking Kain prisoner, Kakashi picked up Sai and the rest of Sakura's escorts, and returned home. Turning over Karin to Ibiki Morino for questioning, before talking to Koharu and Homura, the elders of Konohagakure, and reluctantly agreeing to become the Sixth Hokage for the Allied Shinobi Forces. However, before he could be officially declared Sixth Hokage, news arrived that tsunade had awoken and Kakashi later thanked her, feeling not cut out for the position. At the peak of the Fourth Shinobi World War, Kakashi was made commander of the Allied Shinobi Forces' Third Division and urged Gaara, the Regimental Commander, to say a few words to all the divisions, which he did, bringing everyone together as friends, which caught Kakashi's eye. Later, Kakashi and his division found themselves confronted by their old enemies, Zabuza Momochi and his apprentice, Haku, revvied by Kabuto as military weapons(Kabuto had revived many). After Kabuto assumes complete control over them, Kakashi ordered his division into Manji formation to protect their sensor after Zabuza used his Hiding in Mist Technique, only for the latter to summon the previous generation of the Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist. With his division quickly being killed, Kakashi hatched a plan to counter Zabuza's mist, and tried to impale him with his Lightning Cutter, which again was block by Haku. Zabuza attempted to bisect him, but Kakashi got only a light wound, with Haku being the one cut in half. Going on to thank Zabuza and Haku for being Naruto's first opponents, which taught hima valuable lesson about bonds, Kakashi cut off Zabuza's arm and stabbed him through the chest with his Lightning Cutter, allowing time for him and Haku to be sealed. The next day, Kakashi and his men continued to fight the remaining Seven Swordsmen, him managing, in the anime, to defeat Jinin Akebino, who was sealed.
Kakashi later fought against Jinpachi Munashi and Kushimaru Kurairare, who, having killed many of his men, cornered Kakashi, but Might Guy soon arrived and teamed up with him to fight the duo, who were later subdued and sealed. Kakashi, using Zabuza's sword, Kubikiribochi, later cut through Fuguki Suikazan, allowing for him to be sealed. Though some White Zetsu clones arrived as back-up, Naruto arrived for Kakashi's side. After the remaining Swordmen was sealed, Kakashi and Guy left to go and help Naruto in his battle, arriving in time for to stop Obito from capturing him. After the Five-Tails began to attack Obito, Kakashi noted that he disn't seem to have full control over all the tailed beasts, before all of them charge at them. Working together with Guy, Kakashi attacks the beasts, before Obito caused Utakata and Roshi to fully transform. As they fall back, Kakashi told Guy that they couldn't help Naruto out of Son Goku, the Four-Tails' jaws, and creates a shadow clone, before assuming Manji formation. Working with guy, Kakashi used his Lightning Transmission to bisect the chakra arms of the jinchuriki, and later looked on in shock as they all transformed into their tailed beasts, with only Son Goku not present, since Naruto freed him and Obito sucked him back into the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path, the empty xessel of the roiginal tailed beast, the Ten-Tails. As the beasts prepared to launch five Tailed Beast Balls at them, Guy told Kakashi that he couldn't warp them away, but he could the former that using the all of the inner Eight Gates would kill him. naruto, however, countered the balls and managed to transform into Kurama, as he was now willing to allow. Watching the battle that ensued, Kakashi was horrified at the sight of a combined Tailed Beast Ball, which Naruto countered with his own, later managing to free the tailed beasts, which were sealed within the statue. After Naruto's tranformation fades, Kakashi, Guy, Killer B, the Eight-Tails, Gyuki's jinchuriki, and naruto team up against Obito, who had the Outer Path statue by his side. While Guy and Naruto dealt with Obito, Kakashi decided to deal witht he statue, which was uneffected by his attack.
Kakashi infused a kunai with lightning chakra and had B launch him, attempting to attack Obito, who kicked the kunai towards Naruto, forcing Kakakshi to catch it with Kamui. As this attack failed, Kakashi and the others regroup, wondering how they will defeat Obito. Noticing a crack in Obito's mask, which he figures out the cause of, Kakashi asked his friends to aide him. Climbing into B's hand, Kakashi, Naruto, and Guy are launched across the battlefield, Kakashi sends Naruto's Rasengan into his Kamui demension, where it strikes Obito's right arm. Explaing how Obito's technique worked and that it shared the same demension as his Kamui, Kakashi asked him where he got the eye, to which he was answered thathe obtained it at Kanabi Bridge, horrifying Kakashi. Snapped out of his spell fter Naruto attacked Obito, Kakashi sent a shadow clone of Naruto into the Kamui demension, where it shattered Obito's mask, revealing his face to the shocked Konoha Jonin. Conversing with Obito, Kakashi is informed by the latter as to why hes doing all this(Kakashi failed to protect Rin), causing him to become deeply depressed. After Obito's following attack is thwarted by Naruto, Madara Uchiha himself appeared, which to the shock of Kakashi and the others. As the two Uchiha casually talk, Kakashi is shocked to learn Madara knew about the Eye of the Moon Plan, and as he confronts Obito with Guy, asks him why he would team up with someone like Madara. However, Obito eventually said that all that was left was for them to have their final fight. Blocking Obito's following attack with Earth Release, Kakashi was stabbed in the leg by Obito when he fazed through the wall. Insistent on an answer, Kakashi repeated his question, but was warped away by Obito. Remebering Obito's past words, Kakashi warps out with Kamui in disbelief of what Obito had become.
Kakashi, admitting he was trash, was kicked in the face by Obito and slashed with two shuriken across the chest. As Obito was about to finish him, Naruto saved Kakashi by countering Obito's right shuriken, declaring he would defend his friends with his life. Remebering these words as his own, Kakashi used his Lightning Cutter to destroy the other shuriken, telling Obito that since he remembered what he had taught him, he would now protect Naruto. Exhausted, Kakshi is warped back into the demension after Kurama switches places with Naruto and throws him, allowing Kakashi to attack Obito's parts when he sends them there after Naruto attacks him. Warping himself back outside, Kakashi sees the giant Tailed Beast Ball Naruto fires at the Outer Path statue. This does not destroy it, however, as it was revealed quickly to have become the Ten-Tails. Madara and Obito connect themselves to the beast, as Kurama grabs Kakashi and Guy in his mouth. As Kurama, who knows the true nature of the Ten-Tails, begins to act as a captain, Kakashi states that he likes it. Following Kurama advice, Kakashi warps B, fully transformed, over the Ten-Tails, preparing to fire a Tailed Beast Ball at point blank range. However, this fails as the beast thumps it back and it explodes on B, defeating him. Naruto tosses kakashi out of the Ten-Tails attack in time, with himlanding on Kurama before its form vanishes again. As transporting B like he did weakened him, Kakashi finds relief when Naruto summons the remaining Allied Shinobi Forces, including Sakura, who heals him Unable to talk to Shikaku Nara, as the Ten-tails had evolved some, Kakashi prepares to use his Kamui against the beast. Failing to do so in time, Kakashi is stunned at the distance the Ten-Tails' Tailed Beast Ball could travel. As obito launched an attack through the beast, Kakashi was shocked to see Neji Hyuga sacrifice himself to save Naruto and Hinata, lecturing Obito was hid degrading of Naruto, only to be cut off by him as he pointed out the lonliness at the end of the path Naruto had chosen to walk.
Knowing and stating to Naruto that failure to protect promised loved ones could be a curse, Kakashi receives some chakra from that becomes a cloak, which Naruto gives to all the forces. Though Obito and Madara were seperated from the Ten-Tails, Kakashi is intercepted by obito, and the two end up warping each other into the other demension after Kakashi tells Naruto to handle things there. Attacking Obito with his Lightning Cutter, Kakashi is not able to kill his former friend, allowing his opponent to go on to mock Kakashi for his wish for his to change. Despite his pleas, Obito ignores Kakashi and purposely stabs himself through on Kakashi's technique, revealing(with genjutsu) a large hole where his heart should be. While Obito attempts to appeal to his happier memories by creating genjutsu versions of Rin and his younger self, Kakakshi strikes them down, saying that illusions will never heal one's pain. Obito scoffs at Kakashi's following words, saying such things were cause of one's pain. As the fight resumed, Kakakshi and Obito stalemated constantly in genjutsu, prompting Obito to request they end it. As they then begin to fight physically, Kakashi and Obito impale each other through the chest, and Kakashi wins the fight as his appears non-fatal. Obito, however, admitting his loss, warps back outside, declaring Kakashi would lose the war while laughing at him. Later stitching his wounds before contemplating Obito, Kakashi uses his left eye to see the battlefield and is surprised to see Sasuke and Naruto together confronting Obito. Realizing he was seeing things in Obito's perspective after hearing his voice ringing in his head, Kakashi reflects on what he said about his heart being an empty void, before contemplating that when an idiot gives his all, anyone who would ridicule him otherwise can't help but lend him a hand and that sooner or later all people realize is that the void of ones heart can be filled by their friends, as well as that those whose hearts are can overcome any obstacle. After Obito had been defeated and the tailed beasts removed from him, Kakashi teleported directly on top of him, telling Sasuke, who was moving to finish him, they can talk later and to let him take care of Obito as a former friend of his.
As he tries to finish him, Minato, their sensei, stops him, telling Kakashi that Naruto's lecture to Obito was his right. After hearing him speak further and hearing Obito declare that Rin was his light of life, Kakashi, contemplating what says about the world then appearing as a pitch-black hell to him, claims he doesn't know for certain either and that Obito's path is one-way. Staung that he too saw the world as Obito did and that he strained his eyes trying to see in it, Kakashi states that Naruto may fail in his path and, after Obito asks how he and Naruto differ, explains that he was much less likely to do so than Obito because he had friends like him to help him and support him whenever it seemed he was about to fail, also adding in that Naruto also would bow to reality and give up on his dreams. Later informed by Minato that Obito would not die, Kakashi laments that, though he'd hoped Obito would make amends for all he'd done, his laying paralyzed would have to suffice for now. Asking Minato to look after Obito as he starts to leave, Kakashi becomes shocked when the latter states he would use the Samsara of Heavenly Life Technique to revive those he'd killed, as it would mean Obito's demise, later asking if he was OK with the notion of not seeing Rin in the afterlife. Before it can go further, Black Zetsu pops out of the ground and takes control of Obito, much to kakashi and Minato's puzzlement, and forces him to revive Madara with the technique instead. Afterwards informed by Obito as to what had happened, Kakashi and Minato moved to kill Black Zetsu when he started to take the Rinnegan eye from Obito, only for him to merge with him. Stating that he should have been captured, Black Zetsu replied they'd had all taken him and Madara way too lightly amd that, as Obito had been useless to them, he'd use his body any way he could to impede them until Obito's last breath.
Fighting with Minato against him, Kakashi later notes that he can't sense Obito's presence anymore, before Gaara and Sakura arrive with Naruto, who has now had Kurama extracted from him. Puzzled, Kakashi and Gaara team up to fight Black Zetsu while Minato transfers his half of Kurama into Naruto to save him. However, their opponent manages to thwart Minato's attempt to do so by getting between him and Naruto as he starts, absorbing Kurama's other half into himself instead. To Kakashi shock, Madara, now the perfect jinchuriki of the Ten-tails, suddenly arrives on their location. Shocked that Madara was now the Ten-tails' perfect jinchuriki, Kakashi mobilizes with Gaara to capture Black Zetsu and get back the other half of Kurama, only for Obito to stop him midway when he tried to unbind from him. Waiting patiently while the two Uchiha talk, Kakashi, Gaara, and Minato attempt a perfectly-timed assault on Madara as Obito seemingly decided to join his side, only for Madara to effortlessly overwhelm them in a few seconds, hacking off Minato's remaining arm and kicking it and its Rasengan at Kakashi, who warped it away before it struck. Shocked and relieved to see Obito back to his old self when he betrays Madara, Kakashi teleports Sakura and Naruto into the Kamui dimension on Obito's order and teams up with him to get him there when Madara prevents him from doing so himself. As soon as the legendary Uchiha attacks again, Kakashi and Obito use Kamui together and double the tecnique's speed, sending Obito there successfully. Afterwards, Guy arrives and saves Kakashi's life as well.
Confirming to Minato that he was alright, Kakashi laments that his sensei's senjutsu abilities were less than perfect. After Guy is easily overwhelmed by Madara, despite using seven of the inner Eight Gates, Kakashi and Minato team up to save him from Madara's next attack, only for Rock Lee to arrive and do so first. Confirming Guy was alright, Kakashi laments on the taijutsu they were depending on also failing against Madara, contemplating what to do next while acknowledging Madara was too strong. Afterwards, Kakashi is shocked when Guy decides to use the fatal final of the Eight Gates to fight Madara, which increased all the more as he watched Guy do so and attack Madara. Lamenting that Guy's first attack hadn;t been enough to defeat Madara, Kakashi explains to Gaara that he was using all of the Eight Gates together to increase his power massively for a short while, pointing out Guy would die afterwards. When Minato starts to build a strategy for them to help Guy fight, Kakashi states thats hes almost completely blind in his left eye now from overusing Kamui and that he'll need to be close to use it accurately again. So Minato gives him one of his special kunai and has Gaara get him close enough to use it to create a hole in Madara's defense, which allows Guy to overpowered and repel him, albeit to little effect. Kakashi is later surprised to see Naruto arrive back on the battlefield. He is later robbed of his Sharingan before he could react by Madara, who used it to teleport after Obito into the Kamui space. When his students later joined his side, Naruto regenerated his original left eye he lost before attaining the Sharingan in his left socket, and Kakashi talked with his students about their dreams and reminded them of what he taught them with the bells test as Madara seemingly started to arrive back, wondering how they will deal with Madara now that he has both his RInnegan back.
Watching on the sidelines with Sakura as Sasuke and Naruto battle the more powerful Madara, they are all shielded by Sasuke's perfect form of Susanoo from the genjutsu light of Madara's Infinite Tsukuyomi when he activates it. After being told by Sasuke that he and Sakura are now useless and can do nothing to help fight Madara, Kakashi agrees with him and states Sasuke could take command of Team Seven and later questions if Madara and Black Zetsu are having a falling out after shockingly seeing the latter betray the former. After Black Zetsu revives Kaguya Otsutsuki, the creator of the Infinite Tsukuyomi, in Madara's immortal body, which takes her form, Kakashi, after witnessing her so easily overwhelm Sasuke and Naruto, questions her on her motives, before being easily overwhelmed by her god-like powers along with the rest of Team Seven when she transfers them to another deminsion. Though he is able to save himself and Sakura from the lava river beneath them, his scroll he used is burned through anyway, with Naruto catching them and Sasuke after Kaguya takes out his hawk summon and using a shadow clone to move Kakashi and Sakura away as they prepare to battle the god-like ancestor. Later, while processing Kaguya's power, Kakashi declares that she seemed to a god, before later telling Sakura that Kaguya was responsible when they are teleported to a different, icy demension. When Obito comes to thanks to Naruto, though is still bound to die, Kakashi lies to him about defeating Madara and they all head over to where Kaguya is battling Naruto. After a strategy is formed, Kakashi is left on his own after Obito teleports into Kaguya's space-time demension with Sakura and Naruto's shadow clone. Growing frustrated with his inability to help out in any way, Kakashi later attempts to sacrifice himself along with Obito to save Naruto and Sasuke from Kaguya, only for Obito to teleport the destructive bone heading for him away and take a fatal hit from the one heading for him. After Obito dies, his soul teleports into Kakashi's inner spirit and gives him both of his eyes, which allows Kakashi to activate the perfect form of Susanoo, with him using to save Sakura's life from the Ten-Tails transformation that had been forced on Kaguya by the Tailed Beasts within her.
Working together with his students, before losing control of his complete Susanoo, Kaashi smiles on as his student work together and successfully seal Kaguya. Afterwards, a chakra incarnation of the Sage of Six Paths arrived to take them back from Kaguya's dimension, having summoned the souls of many of the previous Kage and had them work together with the undead Hokage to do so. After they are brought back to their world, Kakashi lamentingly talks this over with the Sage.
Kakashi is a very serious, calm, and laid back man, which his rival, Might Guy, sometimes calls his "coolness". He has a very good relationship with pretty much everyone in Konohagakure and is trusted by everyone. Kakashi loves his students and friends dearly, declaring he would not allow them to die, being willing to die himself for them. Though they didn't always get along, Kakashi and his teammate, Obito Uchiha, became good friends before the latter's supposed death, which caused him to view Obito as a hero. This resulted in him being heart-broken and depressed when he later saw how evil and corrupt Obito became after meeting Madara Uchiha Kakashi appears quite humble, and despite his prowess as a shinobi, is not arrogant, always praising others and even acknowledging that Naruto has surpassed him. Kakashi is also very loyal to the village of Konohagakure.
Kakashi is an immensely powerful shinobi, easily one of the strongest in Konohagakure, and was the only person desired for the position of Sixth Hokage after Danzo Shimura's death, even by the rest of the five Kage, who did not want Danzo to be Hokage. Kakashi was able to easily defeat Zabuza Momochi, an S-rank Missing-nin of Kirigakure, on their encounters, even after he was revived and benefited by the Impure World Reincarnation. Along with him, Kakashi was able to, during the Fourth Shinobi World War, easily defeat several members of the Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist's most powerful generation. He was also able to fight on even terms with and defeat Obito Uchiha, despite the latter having massively increased his power while training under Madara Uchiha, albeit Obito willingly threw the fight in the end to let Kakashi remove Madara's seal which was keeping him from becoming the Ten-Tails jinchuriki.
Kakashi has immense skill in nature transformation, able to, thanks to the Sharingan, use four different natures with great skill. Kakashi's most famous element is Lightning Release, which he mastered at a very young age. Using it, he created the Chidori, and later its more powerful version, the Lightning Cutter, which he used to cut a bolt of lightning in half. At first, he was not as good at employing it, as he could only move in a linear fashion. However, after Obito gave him his Sharingan, Kakashi was able to kill a Chunnin of Iwagakure in one try. He has also shown to be capable of funneling lightning through weapons to increase their cutting power. He is very skilled with Water Release, able to easily defeat Zabuza Momochi, a Water Release specialist and S-rank Missing-nin, in their first fight, evening his skill in an instant. Kakashi also has great mastery of Earth Release, able to burrow underground and catch an opponent off-guard, and formulate a large wall of mud in an instant. He is also able to use Fire Release with great skill, able to use the Fire Release: Great Fireball Technique to destroy much of a given area. Kakashi also knows enough about Wind Release to train others, like Naruto Uzumaki.
Kakashi's most famous ability is his Sharingan, which allows him to predict enemy movements, see and read their chakra, and copy most enemy techniques with ease and replicate their use himself. Using it, he's mastered over a thousand techniques and three additional chakra natures, earning him the nicknames "Copy Ninja Kakashi" and "Kakashi of the Sharingan", which he is known world-wide by. Kakashi also has high genjutsu abilities, able to use potent illusions against others, even managing to equal Obito Uchiha, another potent genjutsu user, to the point that they were forced to abandon genjutsu and fight physically. At the time of his friend, Rin Nohara's death, Kakashi awakened the Mangekyo Sharingan, which he didn't discover until the timeskip period. After enough practice, Kakashi mastered the use the Kamui technique, which allows him to send others and objects into another demension, even ripping them apart. He can use it several times in a fight, sometimes in rapid succession, which also shows his remarkable chakra prowess. By the Fourth Shinobi World War, however, he eyesight had almost faded in his left eye from his uses of it. He has since lost this ability and all others given to him by the Sharingan when Madara Uchiha ripped his left eye from him, robbing him of all these powers. Later, however, when Obito was killed by Kaguya Otsutsuki, he teleported his soul into Kakashi inner spirit and passed on both of his eyes to him for brief period of time, allowing Kakashi to regain his lost powers and even attain the ability to activate the perfect form of Susanoo, making him the first non-Uchiha to use it, before losing the eyes again after the time limit ran out. Kakashi is very skilled in taijutsu, able to easily defeat opponents with swift attacks, while evading theirs. In part 2, he was able to easily fight against a clone of Itachi Uchiha on even terms, despite having trouble keeping up with the original's speed in part 1. Kakashi has great physical strength, able to easily weild Zabuza Momochi's Kubikiribocho with ease, despite its great weight, with a single hand. In terms of intelligence, Kakashi has always been regarded as a natural genius, able to teach himself to utlize shape manipulation with a change in chakra nature in his creation of Chidori and Lightning Cutter. Kakashi has also showed often to be a cunning man, who even the Fifth Hokage, Tsunade rarely questions. He is able to easily analyze and figure out most enemy techniques with successful diversions if necessary and always has been a skilled teacher.
