Why does Kakashi in Naruto always wear a mask? Ninja Secret Revealed!

If you’re as sensitive as I am, you might have wondered why Kakashi always wears a mask, right? Well, let’s unfold the mystery.

Kakashi is wearing a mask because he is way too handsome? Kunoichi would surround him if he showed his face? If these are the assumptions you are making then you are not right about the part.

Kakashi had worn a mask on his face since his childhood, before his father Sakumo Hatake died. He covers his half face which includes chin, lips, and nose.

The character of Kakashi has gained a lot of fan following because of his cool nature and looks.

Sakumo Hatake was one of the strongest and elite shinobi of the Leaf Village. He was often referred as ” white fang”. According to Sasuke’s father, Fugaku Uchiha, Sakumo was equivalent to three legendary sanin. Kakashi was resembling a lot to his father. So he did not want people to know him because of his father. He wanted to create his own identity. That is one of the reasons why he always put on the mask.

Another widely accepted theory is that Kakashi was always reading his favorite book ” Makeout Tactics”, which would cause his nose to bleed, to prevent that from getting exposed, he always wore a mask.

Since his childhood, Kakashi suffered a lot, and everyone, he loved, died. First the death of his father and the death of his comrades, Obito and Rin. Then after that the death of his Sensei, Minato Namikaze. Not to show his emotions and to get sympathized by the villagers, he always wore a mask.

And one of the main and possible reasons behind Kakashi’s mask is that it looks aesthetic. Also, Kishimoto wanted to design him that way. As all Shinobi are meant to hide their identities, it was handy to wear a mask to keep one’s facial identity hidden.
