Boruto Wiki

Kakashi Hatake is a shinobi of Konohagakure's Hatake clan. In the anime, Obito is seen to be crushed by a rock giving Kakashi his Sharingan and proceeded to convo on how Kakashi was a better Shinobi than he'll ever be. Obito later seemed to die at the hands of the rocks. He was assigned to Konoha's Anbu Black Ops by his sensei and fourth hokage, Minato. The span of 3-5 years he would be apart of the anbu and when Minato passed away, Hiruzen appointed Kakashi and decided to take him off the Anbu because people with 'good-hearts' shouldn't be tasked with the ruthless missions Danzo appointed them with.

Kakashi faces Nue.

In the anime, when learning about the mysterious attacks on the village, Kakashi begins investigating the incident, and learns that it involves a Root project. Upon reporting his findings to Naruto at the Hokage's Office, the two discuss the investigation with Shikamaru. Realizing the culprit planned to unleash the Nue on the village now that it was nearing completion, Kakashi went in search of the rogue student. Arriving at Senju park, Kakashi immediately severed the creature's tail, resulting in the spontaneous emergence of dozens of smaller tails, which it used to steal chakra from Sai's men. After saving them, Kakashi organized the team to hold off the creature. As Naruto arrives, Kakashi stops him from fighting, explaining that the creature's intention was to gather enough chakra to produce a powerful explosion to destroy the village. As the shinobi attempt to subdue the beast, it teleports away, much to Kakashi's surprise. Kakashi deduced that while this creature was a summoning, it uniquely existed normally in a separate dimension, leaving others unable to follow it.



Purple Lighting

Kakashi typically uses Purple Electricity to strike targets from a distance, though he does sometimes use it through direct contact, as when he places his hand on spilled alcohol in order to transmit Purple Electricity throughout the surrounding area. He can modulate the intensity of the Purple Electricity, creating a blast strong enough to remove a target's explosive vest but without setting off the explosive or otherwise affecting the target. Conversely, he is later shown using all his chakra to perform a Purple Electricity powerful enough to induce the rain clouds he's falling through to start producing rain.
