How old is Kakashi in Boruto?


Hatake Kakashi is one of the main characters in the Naruto series. He is a fan favorite and is known for his Sharingan gifted to him by Obito. But, sadly, our favorite character is slowly getting older.

Kakashi has been a very skilled person since he was just a kid. We’ve seen him since he was little. His journey is extraordinary and we should feel proud that we got to see him grow from being a part of the ANBU to Hokage.

In the anime series Boruto, Kakashi seems pretty old, but how exactly?

To calculate his perfect age, let’s take at how old he was in the series; Naruto and Naruto Shippuden.

How Old was Kakashi in Naruto?

It was never fully explained how old Kakashi was exactly, so it’s kind of tricky to pinpoint his age. So, the only way to find out his exact age is by collecting pieces of information from the series. Let’s get started.

He was an exceptional kid and when Kakashi was age 5 he graduated from the Ninja Academy. But at the same time, tragedy struck.

Kakashi was just a little boy when his mom died. And when he was around 5, his father, Sakumo Hatake killed himself. Sakumo was assigned to a mission and felt to accomplish that mission. The villagers humiliated him for that and he fell into a deep depression. Causing suicide.

Another clue that can help us to find his age is from the Chūnin exams. At the age of 5 he graduated from the Academy and at the age of 6, he completed his Chūnin exam. At the same time, Might Guy also became a Chūnin.

The great Third Shinobi war also holds a particular clue to know about Kakashi’s age. During the war, he was left to guard Konoha. Their superiors acknowledged his work and promoted him to Jōnin.

He got the title ‘Jōnin’ at the age of 12 years old.

We can get the exact answer if we collect information through Naruto’s age. When Naruto got promoted to a Genin he was 12 years old. And Kakashi is almost 14 years older than the Jinchuriki of Nine-Tailed Fox. (Naruto)

If we look at when Jiraya and Naruto went for training outside of the village, they spent almost three years training. Now, we can finally get to a conclusion. Kakashi was almost 30 years old in the series; Naruto.

We got the final calculation of Kakashi’s age in Naruto. Now, let’s get into detail on his age in Naruto Shippuden so we can get the final calculation of Kakashi’s age in the Boruto series.

Kakashi’s age in Naruto Shippuden

It’s quite easy to calculate his age in Naruto Shippuden after finding his real age from the series Naruto.

Let’s use the same theory as we did before. In the series Naruto Shippuden, Naruto is about 18 years old. Kakashi is almost 14 years older than Naruto, which means in the series Naruto Shippuden he is almost 32 years old.

But if we roll back, during the Fourth Great Ninja War, Kakashi was elected as the new Sixth Hokage and there are some pieces of information that state that Kakashi was 31 years old when he became the Sixth Hokage.

It’s possible that he was at his mid 31 in the series Naruto Shippuden.

Now we can finally calculate the final age of Kakashi in the series Boruto. Let’s hop straight into it.

How old is Kakashi in the Boruto series?

Let’s start with calculating when the series Boruto aired. This will help in our theory a lot.

Do you remember Boruto’s age when it aired?

The anime was aired almost 15 years after the final episode of Naruto Shippuden aired. And Boruto was about 10 years old. So, Naruto is now almost 32 years old at the moment.

By calculating Naruto’s age we can easily get to a conclusion. Kakashi was almost 47 years old. And when Boruto joined the Academy he was almost 12 years old.

This makes our point stronger. The Seventh Hokage is now 34, meaning Kakashi is now almost 49 years old or maybe he’s at the beginning of his 50.

Even if we take a good look at the structure of Kakashi’s face we can see him getting wrinkles and being old.

It’s sad to see that our favorite character is getting old but when he was younger he achieved more them a normal shinobi could. Let’s take a look at the events of what happened when he was young.

How old was Kakashi when Minato died?

Konoha was under attack again. Obito unleashed the Nine-Tailed Fox, the village turned into chaos. Everyone was running away while People were searching for a safe place, Obito was searching for Minato.

You must know about the epic clash between Obito and Minato. The Fourth Hokage used his Flying Raijin and took down Obito in style. It was so cool that the fans will never forget this event.

But eventually, Minato died along with Kushina while rescuing their son from the Demonic Fox. Nevertheless, Kakashi and Obito are of the same age, and when the Hokage got killed, Obito was about 14 years old.

This means that when Minato died Kakashi was about 14 years old.
