Kakashi Hatake was a legendary ninja who served the village of Konohagakure, before and after the Third Ninja War. He was known throughout the world as one of the Legendary Sannin. Kakashi is noted for his use of his impressive Sharingan to copy a target’s movements. And master every technique in their arsenal by using them against them; He also gained renown as White Fang. Renowned as much for his unpredictable nature, unorthodox methodologies, and tendency to violate rules, as well as his formidable combat skills.
Kakashi became an orphan when he was quite young and was forced to rely on his ingenuity and self-reliance. He also gained the Sharingan at an early age, supposedly in a fight at the age of six with another boy from his village, who had taunted him over his eye. However, this other boy stole a precious crystal belonging to Kakashi. To get back his prized possession he challenged the boy to a fight.
The Sharingan is a rare and fatal dōjutsu that manifests when one is get affect by the curse of the Uchiha. The Uchiha clan’s ability to do so was lost after the first generation and those who were afflicted were supposedly killed by the clan. Only one in ten thousand can ever achieve such a feat, even after intensive training. The ability does not however require eyes, as it can be unleash through other means such as touch or seal; some have even been able to unleash their Sharingan through the material instead of sight.
The left eye has the ability to see people’s chakra pathways and is useful for tracking enemies on a battlefield. One can wield chakra weapons and use them with skill unlike those who don’t have eyes that can manipulate chakra.
The right eye is the one that predicts death, it gives the user the ability to see opponents’ death streaks and use that knowledge to manipulate opponents. When one uses the two eyes together, they can perform powerful techniques. Such as using Susanoo’s Reincarnation Technique and Summoning Technique.
