How Old is Kakashi Hatake in Naruto and Boruto?

Updated October 20, 2022 by Ernie

Almost everyone knows who Kakashi Hate is, right? Yes! He’s the coolest and a badass sensei one could ever ask for. Sometimes, we look at a certain character and think to ourselves, “how old would they be?”. Right? It does happen to everyone! 

Naruto itself is very interesting and the fact that we get to watch the story of his son makes things 100x more interesting. But there are some people who prefer Naruto over Boruto. I mean, of course,  Naruto was a very goofy and fun, and the times when we watched this anime was pretty nice as well. There are some things that we can’t control, and that includes  growing up! 

Anyways, Boruto is Naruto’s son and we know that Kakashi has been with Naruto for a long time now. Kakashi started off as his teacher and after many intense battles and crazy journeys, he’s still alive and kicking in Boruto’s generation . So, imagine how old the teacher would be now? Well, let’s find out! (SPOILERS AHEAD!!!)

Kakashi Hatake’s Age In Naruto 

team 7
Kakashi Hatake was just 27 years old in Naruto and when Naruto was born, he was 14 years old. So, the ninja academy is almost 3-4 years older than him. Kakashi is so skilled that he became a chunin on his very first attempt! At the age of 6, he accomplished a lot. 

When Kakashi turned 27, he was titled as “Kakashi sensei” and started leading Team 7. Team 7 has Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura, and Kakashi Hatake! Kakashi was 27 years old when he first met Naruto. That’s where their bond started to create and soon enough, they formed an unbreakable bond. Following Naruto Shippuden, he was 31 years old since the storyline in Naruto Shippuden started after 4 years of Naruto. 


Kakashi Hatake’s Age In Boruto

boruto and kakashiSince Kakashi’s age isn’t mentioned in Boruto, we can do basic maths and find out his age! How does that sound? Pretty cool, right? So, let’s get started! Naruto Shippuden started 4 years after OG Naruto. So, Kakashi was 32 years old by the end of Naruto Shippuden. Let’s also use Naruto and Hinata as references to find out Kakashi’s age! 

Boruto was just 9-10 years old when he joined the academy and eventually became a Genin at the age of 12. When Naruto was 20 years old, Boruto was born and at that time, Kakashi was 34 years old. After a whole 12 years, Boruto becomes 12 and now if we add 12 in 34 we get 46, right? So, we can assume that Kakashi was in his late forties when Boruto came into existence! 

I don’t know if you guys have noticed or not but Kakashi starts to look a bit  lethargic  and tired in Boruto. What do you guys think? 


Who is Kakashi Hatake?

He’s also known as one of the strongest shinobi in the Hidden Leaf Village who can use diverse types of Jutsus. Let’s learn a bit about his personality now. Shall we? When it comes to Kakashi’s personality, he’s an independant and a self-confident individual who hates depending on others. Kakashi is very perceptive and quickly realizes any situation. He’s quite cold at times, to a scary extent. Kakashi is a very loyal guy who would never disobey the rules or put his comrades in danger–but he may break the rules if his comrade’s safety is in question. Kakashi has gained a reputation of being cold-blooded. Like, if you look at him, you’re going to get the “cold and rude guy” vibes! If you want to know more about Kakashi, watch Naruto!
