Kakashi's unique ability is the use of the "Sharingan" in his left eye. It is an ability unique to the Uchiha clan (Sasuke also has a weaker version of this ability), yet Kakashi is not from Uchiha. The "Sharingan" allows the user to copy and predict the movements of any genjutsu or ninjutsu technique used against him (except for bloodline trait techniques). Of course, you would have to SEE the ability/technique first in order to copy it. Since Kakashi is not of the Uchiha clan, using the Sharingan strains his body.
The story of how Kakashi obtained his Sharingan comes from the manga, told in Kakashi Gaiden, which is the side story that separates the two parts of Naruto. After Kakashi Gaiden, the Naruto story picks up again 2 1/2 years later. Currently, the anime series is still in the first part of the Naruto story and hasn't yet reached the Kakashi Gaiden part. However, odds are that Kakashi's Sharingan origin will be the same (or at least very similar to) the one in the manga. Anyway, lets get on with it....
When Kakashi graduated as a jounin, his teammates had to give him a present, but Uchiha Obito forgot. They also had to do a mission on the same day. On that mission to the grasslands, they got attacked by a group on rock ninjas. The rock ninja's can turn invisible, and slashed Kakashi's left eye (that's how he got the scar). Later, Uchiha Obito gets his whole right side crushed by a huge rock thrown by a rock-ninja. With the last of his strength, Obito tells Kakashi to take his right eye as he will no longer need it. So then Rin, with her special ability, transplanted Obito's eye to Kakashi. During the timeskip later in the series, Kakashi develops his Sharingan into the Mangekyo Sharingan, which is basically just an enhanced version.
Kakashi is not without his "lighter side", though, as one of his "quirks" is reading some kind of adult books titled "Icha Icha Paradise" and "Icha Icha Violence". Nothing, not even survival training, can stop Kakashi from reading through the pages just to "see what happens next"!
Oh, and the reason Kakashi is always late is because his best friend, Obito, was always late, and he choose to adopt his old friend's habit. Unfortunately, Uchiha Obito's body was never recovered, so instead of a grave, he visits a large stone monument that serves as a memorial for all those who died for the mission's completion.
Kakashi's name literally means "scarecrow".
Ichya Ichya Paradise was translated to "Make-Out Paradise" in the US version of SHONEN JUMP, but would be more closely translated to "Come Come Paradise" or "Flirting Paradise". Additionally, "Icha Icha Violence" was translated as "Make-out Violence". I'm also told that Kakashi reads another book/magazine, "Icha Icha Tatics".
Recently some fake pictures of Kakashi without his mask have been surfacing. These fake pictures are edited versions of real pictures.
Hatake Kakashi was the jônin assigned to train Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura for their real ninja education. He was chosen... because he has a talent for sniffing things out, whatever that means. He's a cool looking guy that looks sort of like a slacker. I love his attitude, since it's sorta similar to the way I act. He is very quick and is very good at ninjutsu. How good? Good enough to read a book while he's fighting, providing that the fighter isn't as good as Sasuke. However, he seems to have a strange taste in the reading matter. Weird guy, and I'm not asking.
He's extremely strict, and has never passed anyone before, until Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura came.... He seems to empathize on teamwork, and had purposely made a test with instructions that would make them want to work separately. Afterwards, he gives them another chance, and tells Sakura and Sasuke that they may eat their lunch, but they cannot give any to Naruto after he attempted to steal them. However, when both of them gave their lunches to Naruto.... They passed! Kakashi's a really strange guy.... I like him, he's funny.
Kakashi possesses one sharingan eye. I repeat, one. This mirror-wheel eye allows him see through illusions and spells, and reflect those powers used to create those illusions and spells back at the one who cast them. It also allows him to discern and copy an opponent's moves. Normally, he keeps his eye covered with his headband (for reasons that you'll find out), and if he exposes his eye to fight an opponent... you know the opponent is going to be tough.
Kakashi got his sharingan eye from a friend, a member of the Uchiha clan. Kakashi, Rin, Obito and Yondaime were on a mission, and Kakashi had become a jounin on his birthday so Yondaime made him mission leader and went off to help fight a part of some massive war. Then during the mission Rin got captured, but Kakashi did not want to go and get her (the reason for this is because his dad, the White Fang of Konoha, did the same thing and became a disgraced ninja and killed himself). Obito then went off to get Rin back since he has a similar attitude to that of Naruto, and as he fought the guy that captured Rin he awakened his Sharingan... then Kakashi comes around to join the fight ('cause Obito gave him a speech beforehand) and long story short they win the fight but the guy they were fighting (an Iwagakure shinobi named Kakko) did a rock slide move ("Doton: Iwayado Kuzushi", AKA "Earth Release: Rock Lodging Destruction") to take 'em out. Since Kakashi couldn't escape in time, Obito pushed him out of the way, but Obito then got caught under Rock slide.
With half of his body crushed (namely the right side) he pledged his awakened sharingan from his left eye to Kakashi, and Rin (a medical ninja) performed the transplant for him. Kakashi then goes to fight the idiot that killed Obito with his newly acquired Sharingan, and Chidori (AKA One Thousand Birds), a move he had just recently invented. So Kakko ends up having the honor of being the first person to be killed by Kakashi's Chidori. And now that is why Kakashi has a sharingan. Also, that is why his "2 bells test" highlights friendship and team work, as he felt if he had made it there earlier Obito wouldn't have died.
Kakashi became a Chunin at age 6, and became a Jonin at age 13. The fourth hokage was in charge of Kakashi's team. The scar on Kakashi's left eye came from a battle with the rock ninja. Kakashi jumped in front of Obito to save him from the enemy's kunai, and thus Kakashi ends up with the scar.
Obito's sharigan eye only had two stages when he gave it to Kakashi. Kakashi's sharigan eye has three stages, showing that Kakashi has evolved it into its third stage. Kakashi also has an ongoing rivalry with Maito Gai. Kakashi has 49 wins and 50 losses against Gai. However, the battles include sprints, and Rock, Paper, Scissors.
Name : Uzumaki Naruto Age : 12 B'day : 10th October Gender : Male Hair : Blonde Eye : Blue(normally), Red(when he fuses his chakra with the fox)
Alias : Kyuubi Height : 4'9"(at debut; grows as series progresses), 5'5"(post time-skip) / 145.3 cm(at debut; grows as series progresses), 166 cm(post time skip)
Weight : 88.4 lbs / 40.1 kg Blood : type B Status : Genin(entry level ninja) - chuuin Voice : US = Maile Flanagan Japan = Junko Takeuchi
Naruto is a mischievous young boy who, due to the "stigma" of having the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox sealed within him, is shunned by the adults of Village Hidden in the Leaves, since he is the "vessel" of the demon who had killed so many people in the village twelve years ago. Before he was aware of this fact, Naruto was simply a young orphan, living alone in his house, eating his "cup ramen" (instant cup noodles), and basically getting attention to himself by being a brat. He would pull pranks, and vandalize monuments and statues. He even made fun of his ninja apprenticeship classes, inventing "stupid ninja skills" as "Sexy no Jutsu", where instead of transforming his appearance to look like his teacher, he turns in to a naked, blonde girl!
Naruto is not without "serious ninja skills", however. His specialty is the "Kage Bunhsin no Jutsu", learned from a forbidden secret scroll he was tricked into stealing. In contrast to the normal "Bunshin" (clone illusions) done by ordinary ninjas, the "Kage Bunshin no Jutsu" produces multiple "Shadow Clones" of the user, with actual physical bodies. In short, Naruto can create real duplicates of himself (or anything else) and each of the duplicates can physically affect his enemies just like the real thing!
Naruto believes that the only way the people of the village will accept him and acknowledge him as a citizen of the village is to train hard and become the village's next "Hokage" (the highest-level ninja and leader of all ninjas in the village). This is ultimate goal, and he is determined to achieve it no matter what.
Naruto may be a hyperactive knucklehead, but few people have as much sheer guts and willpower, and it can produce a number of surprising results, such as when he first invoked the Shadow Clone technique. Having the much-talked-about Sasuke as a teammate also fuels his fire, since it stirs intense rivalry in both of them, spurring each to push harder.
He doesn't really know it (Kakashi does, though), but Naruto has even more chakra potential than Sasuke. The reason is that the spirit of that infamous nine-tailed fox is still within him, and the dark side of that secret emerges when Naruto is pushed over the mental edge. As he realizes just how big of a problem the demon within him can be, he gains another reason to become stronger: so he can keep the vengeful demon in check.
Naruto technically found out about the nine-tailed fox within him in the first episode when his original sensei was fighting the white haired ninja guy, Mizuki, over the scroll that Naruto "stole" so that he could graduate and be a higher level ninja. Mizuki is screaming at Naruto telling him that everyone hates him and it's a secret why, and that he'll tell Naruto. Naruto's sensei says no, but the Mizuki tells Naruto about the nine-tails fox anyway. However, it would seem that Naruto either doesn't believe him or there was too much going on for Naruto to comprehend what was being said (or Naruto is just extra thick), because afterwards Naruto acts just as if he had never heard it.
Naruto learns from his new sensei, Jiraiya (who we later learn is Naruto's godfather), how to do a summoning jutsu. He learns how to summon Gamma Bunta and his son which is usually carried around like Akamaru on Kiba.
In the Manga Chapter after the two and a half year time gap, Naruto will still be a Genin while everybody else are Chunins and Jounins, because Naruto was training with Jiraiya. But Naruto should be a Jounin, meaning he is at that level. The same goes for Sasuke, because he was training with Orochimaru, so he should be a Jounin too.
There was a rumor among the show's fans that the Fourth Hokage could be Naruto's father. Well, not only was this rumor confirmed in chapter 367 of the manga, but also the Fourth Hokage's true name was finally revealed: Minato Namikaze. Additionally, we learn that Naruto's mother was Kushina Uzumaki, and that she was a ninja of the Land Of the Whirlpool.
In Episode 56: Live or Die: Risk It All to Win It All!, the Third Hokage says that the fight between Kyuubi and the Fourth Hokage happened 13 years ago. Since the fight ended with Kyuubi being sealed inside the newborn baby Naruto, this statement would indicate that Naruto is 13 years old, even though the official Naruto databook gives Naruto's age as 12 years old at the start of the series. This may not necessarily be a contradiction, however, as time has obviously passed since the first episode. According to this Great Naruto Timeline, by the time Episode 56 rolls around, it has been almost a year since the first episode.
Name : Sasuke Uchiha Age : 12 B'day : July 23 Gender : Male Hair : Black / Dark Blue Eye : Onyx(normally), red (when uses his sharingan)
Height : 4'11" / 150.8 cm Weight : 93 lbs / about 42 kg Blood : Type AB Status : Genin - Chuuin Voice : US = Yuri Lowenthal Japan = Noriaki Sugiyama
Sasuke is one of the top scorers of the ninja apprenticeship school and the top "Genin" (rookie/first-level ninja) of the Village Hidden in the Leaves. He is the sole remaining member of the Uchiha clan, a once powerful ninja clan of the village. He is very dark and serious, and is focused on nothing else but training to become a stronger ninja.
All of this is for one ultimate goal: revenge. His life's ambition is to grow powerful enough to kill "a certain man" (his older brother Itachi). As part of the Uchiha clan, Sasuke has higher "chakra" (spirit energy/chi). He also has a technique to blow fireballs from his mouth.
Also, as one of the Uchiha clan, he inherits the clan's Kekkei Genkai (or bloodline trait)--the Sharingan. He begins to unlock it in the fight with Haku (who himself was using a Kekkei Genkai) and it gradually gains strength as he learns to use it to track movements and observe ninjitsu techniques. It helps having a knucklehead like Naruto as a teammate. He doesn't like Naruto at first, but as they and Sakura learn to work as a team, he shows a surprising willingness to protect Naruto. It's the beginning of a pretty complex teammate/rival relationship, as each watches for the other but at the same time wants to become better than the other.
When Sasuke fought Naruto, they each use a powerful jutsu. Naruto use Rasengen and Sasuke uses Chidori. Chidori, also known as Raikiri (Lightning blade), is a jutsu taught to him by Kakashi.
We find out in manga issues 345-352 that Sasuke, in Shippuden, kills Orochimaru and forms a team called "Snake" from Orochimaru's other test subjects such as Jugo, Karin, and Suigetsu. Then they are to go find and kill Itachi who comments on how it's going to be a storm.
The third DVD box set lists Sasuke's height as 150.8cm, while apparently there is a Sasuke card out there which lists his height as 151cm. If you have a scan or image for either one of these, please contact me.
Sasuke is one of the two surviving members of the Uchiha clan. This once-great clan in Konoha was killed off by Sasuke's older brother, Uchiha Itachi. When Sasuke demands a reason, Itachi told him he wanted to test his strength. After telling Sasuke to 'live in an unsightly way', Sasuke became cold and shut off his heart to others.
Being the prodigy that he is, Sasuke successfully activated his Sharingan when he was fighting Haku. His Sharingan eyes attracted the attention of an extremely dangerous S-ranked criminal, Orochimaru. Orochimaru gave Sasuke the cursed seal, because he wanted Sasuke's body after he truly became strong.
After watching Naruto become strong so quickly, Sasuke felt inferior and as if he hadn't gotten better at all. Orochimaru used this chance to send some of his shinobi (Sound Four) to bring Sasuke to him. Sasuke went willingly, because Orochimaru promised him power. Thus, Sasuke became a traitor of Konohagakure.
Sasuke grew up in the shadow of his older brother Itachi. Sasuke was largely neglected by his father. Sasuke looked up to his brother, but Itachi always seemed friendly yet distant. When Itachi grows increasingly distant from the clan, Sasuke's father begins to spend more with Sasuke, teaching him Gokakyu no Jutsu (Great Fireball Technique). Sasuke finally performed the jutsu in front of his father at age 6.
Then one day, when Sasuke was about 7 years old (or possibly just turned 8), he returned home to find his family massacred with Itachi standing over the bodies. His brother said: If you wish to kill me, hate me, detest me, and survive in an unsightly way. Run, run and cling to life. And one day, when you have the same eyes as me, come before me.
For Sasuke to have the same eyes as Itachi, he has to kill his best friend. Although he initially hates Naruto with a passion, he eventually becomes his best friend. At the end of a battle with Naruto, Sasuke is the winner. Sasuke hesitates, striking Naruto with the back of his hand instead of the Chidori, thus sparring Naruto's life, as he realizes that killing Naruto to obtain the same eyes as Itachi, would be exactly what Itachi wanted. Sasuke leaves Naruto on the ground unconscious, but alive.
