[Naruto] Kakashi Hatake’s Birthday

December 15th

Kakashi Hatake is a highly skilled and capable ninja from the Hidden Village in the Leaves.  His father, Sakumo Hatake, was also a famous shinobi in his time. Kakashi has an estranged relationship with his childhood friend Rin Nohara because of something that happened on one of their previous missions together when Kakashi chose to save his teammates rather than complete their mission objectives and kill enemy shinobi.

Despite this, Kakashi’s actions and teachings helped mold Obito Uchiha into becoming one of Konoha’s greatest heroes alongside his teammate Minato Namikaze, the Fourth Hokage.

Kakashi Hatake is often referred to as ‘copy ninja Kakashi’ because of his technique to watch and copy his opponent’s moves.  He is also called the “Sharingan no Kakashi” (sharingan being the blood inheritance limit of his Uchiha clan).

Kakashi currently holds the rank of Jonin-sensei, and is known as the “lazy” genius due to his habit of not completing paperwork, choosing instead to read Icha Icha all day.

Kakashi Hatake has two teammates: Rin Nohara and Obito Uchiha who are on Team Minato with him. Those three members were considered by some to be Konoha’s most talented ninja since their graduation after only one year.
