How old is Kakashi in Naruto?
The answer is very tricky for this question. His age is not revealed during the entire series. To know this answer you have to collect all the clues about his age throughout the series.
He lost his mother at a young age and his father raised him. Kakashi’s father killed himself when he was only 5 years. So with the help of this clue, we can assume that Kakashi was 5 years old when he graduated from Ninja Academy due to his exceptional talents.
At the age of 6, Kakashi was allowed to compete in the Chunin Exam again to earn his Chunin title.
The next event that can be helpful to know Kakashi’s age is Third Shinobi War.
At the age of 12, Kakashi was promoted to Jonin. After the war scenes, he lost several close friends. As a result, he was mentally disturbed. To keep him calm, his superiors decided to promote him to Anbu, an assassination squad.
These two promotions took one year only which reveals that Kakashi joined the squad at 13.
The most accurate point to guess the age of Kakashi is when Naruto becomes a Genin when he was 12 years old. As per the data books, Kakashi is 14 years older than Naruto, which means Kakashi would be 26 years old at the beginning of the series.
How old is Kakashi in Naruto Shippuden?
We get to know about the age of Kakashi at the end of the Naruto series by finding clues about the consequences of events. Now determining the age of Kakashi in Naruto Shippuden has become much easier.
To determine Kakashi’s age, calculate the time between the end of the Naruto series and the beginning of the Naruto Shippuden series which is two and a half years long. That means Kakashi was around 29 to 30 years old at the end of the Naruto series and would be 31 to 32 years at the beginning of Naruto Shippuden.
According to Cannon, Kakashi was 31 years old at the time the Fourth Shinobi War ended when he was promoted to the position of the Sixth Hokage.
How old is Kakashi in Boruto
There is a big gap till the epilogue of the next series. Boruto is the son of Naruto and Hinata Uzumaki. He enrolls in the Academy during this time. This event might be helpful to calculate Kakashi’s age.
This event happens after 15 years of the end of the original series. Thus, Team 7’s pupils have grown to 32. At this time, Kakashi’s age is estimated to be about 47. Boruto had to be around 10 or 11 years old so that he could get into the Academy.
After two years Boruto reaches the age of 12 and Team 7 reaches the age of thirty-five. According to these events, Kakashi must be around 49 years old or maybe in his 50s.
Developing bags under his eyes and little wrinkles are signs of his advanced age. In this last season of the Naruto series, Kakashi does not appear so often. But when he appears he looks less energetic and calmer. Now he is more focused on the intricacies of life and the proper development of his relationships.
