How Did Kakashi Lose His Sharingan

    Hatake Kakashi of Hidden Leaf Village was a competent prodigy in the Naruto verse. We all know he got his Sharingan from Obito when a boulder fell on him in his teens, and half of his body was crushed.

    He said Rin to transplant one Sharingan to Kakashi as a gift. That’s where Kakashi got his Sharinga. After that, our boy Kakashi was known by all Five Nations as Kakashi of the Sharingan.

    But the real deal is, how did Kakashi lose his Sharingan? So let’s get to it.

    Here’s How Kakashi lost both of his Mangekyou Sharingan

    Kakashi lost his Sharingan during the Fourth Ninja War. Madara snatched Kakashi’s Sharingan to transport himself into Obito’s Kamui dimension, so that he could gain back his maximum potential power.

    This all happened when Kakashi was in open combat with Madara. Although Naruto and Sasuke were still there fighting against Madara, they weren’t aware of Madara’s plan to snatch Kakashi’s sharingan as it would make no sense for Madara to do that.

    Kakashi couldn’t do anything for defense against this sudden attack.

    In the Kamui dimension, Obito, who was half occupied by Zetsu, asked Sakura to destroy his Sharingan eye, as Obito had become aware of Madara’s evil plan. He wanted to prevent the situation to go wrong anymore. Sakura did not have the courage to damage the sharingan.

    After Madara snatched Kakashi’s Sharingan eye, he went to Obito’s Kamui dimension. He sent Sakura back to the real world dimension for his ease against Obito, and she started healing Kakashi’s eye, as it was all she could possibly do.

    While healing Kakashi’s eye, Sakura explained to him that Madara’s grand scheme was to control Obito into getting his power back.

    Madara was following his this plan to get back his ultimate power all along, and you guessed it, that includes Obito’s manipulations too. It all worked very well for him.

    When Madara succeeded in teleporting to Obito’s Kamui dimension with the help of Sharingan he snatched, Madara went on explaining Obito the real reason for why he manipulated him.

    He had put Zetsu to control Obito’s every move, and had placed a seal on Obito’s heart to assert his dominance. Madara had been using Obito as a mere pawn.

    After all this happened, Naruto replaced Kakashi’s eye with the help of his newly acquired Yin & Yang Release.

    That’s the first time Kakashi lost his Sharingan, but actually that’s not the end to it. Who would’ve known that Kakashi had more to show, more to prove himself, and honestly, more to be the amazing person that he was.

    Did Kakashi Get Obito’s Sharingan a Second Time?

    Kakashi regained Obito’s Sharingan in both eyes temporarily. Those two Sharingan of Obito helped Kakashi to access new features like instantly creating the Perfect Susanoo.

    These Mangekyou Sharingan were only temporary as they faded away with the chakra of Obito after Obito’s death.

    You can say that there wasn’t much logic to back this event up, and so this is one of the most debated topic in Naruto community because of its sudden and unexpected portrayal.

    When he got Mangekyou Sharingan from Obito temporarily, he used it to fight alongside Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura, and against Kaguya.

    And as you would expect, in the end, Kakashi finally lost both of his Sharingan completely.

    Why Did Kakashi Lose His Sharingan:

    Some people believe that Kakashi lost his Sharingan because Obito’s Chakra faded when he moved to the world of Hereafter.

    Some believe it’s because Masashi Kishimoto (Naruto’s Mangaka) had planned to retire Kakashi for the sake of role he plays in Boruto: Naruto Next Generations anime.

    Kakashi’s loss of the Sharingan had profound consequences on his identity and role in the Hidden Leaf Village. Stripped of the famed eye technique, Kakashi faced not only a physical transformation but also an emotional one.

    His interactions with fellow ninjas and villagers shifted, as he grappled with the absence of the Sharingan that had defined him for so long.

    This pivotal moment marked a turning point in Kakashi’s journey, forcing him to reassess his place in the village and navigate a new path without the iconic red eye.

    Does Kakashi Still Have His Sharingan in Boruto?

    No. Kakashi does not have Sharingan in Boruto as he lost both of those in the Great Shinobi World War 4.

    He lives a simple life, retired, accomplishing simple missions he seems worthy of, and teaching his pupils as he likes; basically go with the flow kind of life.  

    That’s the reason Kakashi does not have Sharingan in Boruto: Naruto Next Generations.

    Final Words:

    After all we have discussed above, it’s safe to assume that Kakashi lost his Sharingan because Masashi Kishimoto had to make a reason for Madara to get to his maximum potential.

    He also had to retire Kakashi from fighting, because, after all, he needed to see some good easy days in his life. That’s why Kakashi lost his Sharingan forever; once when it was snatched by Madara, and other when Obito’s chakra faded away.

    It’s Important to know that although Kakashi of the Sharingan was no more, he is still the Copy Ninja of Hidden Leaves, who has mastered 1000 Jutsus he learnt while having Sharingan.

    After all, he was and is a living legend, “Kakashi of the Sharingan“. He is still the ideal character for us as he always was!
