As you probably know by now, the world of Naruto has provided us with a series of brilliant fights that became – some of them, at least – trademark moments of the whole show. Now, some of these fights are interesting enough for us to discuss them here, as we are going to not only analyze the fights, but also bring you an analysis of the characters involved. This article is going to focus on the fight between Kakashi Hatake and Obito Uchiha, as we tell you who won and who the stronger character is.
Kakashi, as his former friend and sensei, cnan defeat Obito in a fight. The two of them have clashed, and while Obito was able to injure Kakashi, it was Kakashi who dealt a more decisive blow to Obito and would have killed him had he not gone to help his allies in battle. Kakashi simply has more experience and skill, which is why he defeated Obito.
Now that you have the short version of the answer, the rest of the article is going to be divided into three sections, with the first two introducing the characters, their powers, and their abilities. In the end, we’re going to give our final verdict and explanation on why Kakashi was ultimately be able to defeat Obito in a direct fight.
Chakra and Physical Prowess
Kakashi is a natural genius, evidenced by the fact that he graduated from the Ninja Academy at the age of five, became a Chūnin at six, and a Jonin at thirteen; in addition to having had a long career as ANBU. During his career as a ninja, he has learned more than a thousand techniques (mainly by copying them through the Sharingan), being a Konoha expert in said field.
His chakra level experiences a large increase between the first and second parts, being able to increase the number of times he can use Raikiri per day (six times), with the addition that he has enough Chakra left to use his Mangekyō Sharingan. He is frequently entrusted with important tasks (such as keeping an eye on Naruto in case the Nine-Tailed Fox’s seal begins to fail), eventually rising to assume the position of Hokage.
Obito’s chakra reserves were bolstered by the White Zetsu Matter equipped to his body, allowing him to perform several chakra-intensive techniques without noticeable exhaustion. He also has the ability to absorb chakra, as well as the ability to transfer his own to another person. Obito was proficient in taijutsu, he fought Kakashi several times, while controlling the outcome of their last fight.
His physical strength was great enough to lift Konan by the throat with one hand while he was badly injured or to easily block a sword strike from Kubikiribōchō. He was also very quick able to follow Naruto’s Kyūbi Chakra Mode.
From our perspective, it seems that Kakashi is better in the Chakra category, whereas Obito is more powerful in the physical sense. This is why we actually decided to split the points here.
Points: Kakashi 1, Obito 1
His Sharingan is a gift, interestingly, from Obito Uchiha personally, and it allowed him to copy any jutsu, see through any Genjutsu, perform Genjutsu, and predict the opponent’s moves. However, because Kakashi has no Uchiha blood, he cannot deactivate the Dojutsu, and he loses a large amount of Chakra when using it.
For his great mastery, he has received praise from other expert users, such as Obito and Sasuke, who acknowledged that despite being a borrowed power, he has completely mastered it. Kakashi was able to further enhance his Sharingan by developing his own Mangekyō Sharingan. This eye technique has the ability to manipulate space, and has been shown to be able to suck in targets or even rip parts off a target and send them to another dimension, as well as being able to use this technique on itself to teleport from one place to another by instant.
Obito was able to awaken his Sharingan and use it with great ease, despite it being his first time using it. As he gifted his left eye to Kakashi, he only kept his right Sharingan, which evolved into three blades and showed great mastery with it, being able to keep it active at all times with minimal leakage of his Chakra levels.
Obito awakened the Mangekyō Sharingan some time after being saved by Madara by seeing how Kakashi pierced Rin with his Chidori. Unlike other users of the Mangekyō Sharingan, Obito did not show any fatigue or deterioration of his eyesight at least, despite using the Kamui so extensively.
As the wielder of the Rinnegan, Obito could potentially master all five nature transformations. He could possibly use the full abilities of the Six Paths Jutsu, since they are all the abilities of the Rinnegan, as he mentioned when saying that he could use the Human Path to read Yamato’s mind, but if he did, then I would kill him.
As we can see, Obito was much better in this category, mastering more techniques, but also being more powerful in the ones that the two of them have in common.
Points: Kakashi 1, Obito 2
Kakashi relies heavily on his mastery of Ninjutsu, of which he has a vast arsenal due to his Sharingan, of which Kakashi has been said to have copied a thousand techniques. With this arsenal, he can attack or defend against his opponents in numerous ways.
He has also shown to have impressive skills in Genjutsu, he has shown to be very skilled in Taijutsu, which, combined with his impressive speed, is able to effectively catch his opponents off guard and evade attacks, his Taijutsu skill has great level, thus being able to be on par with Hidan, defending himself only with a Kunai and without receiving a single scratch, knowing that Hidan was a member of Akatsuki, who had Taijutsu as his main form of combat, in addition to the fact that he was supported by Kakuzu.
Obito was a powerful user of the Summoning Jutsu, with it he had the ability to summon Kurama from great distances to Konoha after controlling him with his Dōjutsu. It is noted that his summoning circle was many times larger than a normal one and that he did not require blood to perform the summoning.
After obtaining the Rinnegan, he could use the Animal Path to use the Rinnegan Summon, with which he was able to carry out invocations of any type without the need for a blood contract, this was used to call his Six Paths of Pain to wherever he was. will find.
And while Obito’s ninjutsu skills were, indeed, impressive, Kakashi, as one of the best shinobi in the series, has to win in this category, as his abilities certainly surpass Obito’s.
Points: Kakashi 2, Obito 2
He masters both taijutsu and fūinjutsu. His taijutsu is, according to Naruto, as good as Lee’s. He also fought on equal terms in a taijutsu fight with Hidan and his scythe. His knowledge in Fûinjutsu is also recognized by Orochimaru because Kakashi knew how to stem the cursed mark of Sasuke. Despite all of his powerful techniques, combat experience, and intelligence, his greatest flaw is his limited chakra reserve as he himself admits.
However, do not believe that he does not have many, far from it, but compared to Naruto or Sasuke, he pales in comparison. During the war, he seized Zabuza’s sword and used it to face the seven sword ninjas. He reinforced her with lightning chakra which allowed him to literally slice Kisame’s master in half.
In his childhood, Obito was good at using Taijutsu, but not to the level of Kakashi and Guy. Despite that, when his Sharingan awakened, his close-range and hand-to-hand fighting capabilities improved, as he was able to read and even predict his enemies’ movements to such an extent, that he was able to effectively counter Kakkō and Kakkō with the help of Kakashi; they demonstrated a very effective combat combination.
After being saved by Madara, his ability in this area improved to the point where he could easily take on skilled and strong ninjas like ANBU from Kirigakure and Root. His Taijutsu style was based on the use of his Sharingan and his Space-Time Ninjutsu combined with his physical abilities, which allowed him to pass through enemies and perform surprise attacks and confusion at the same time.
As the text itself explains, Obito was never as good as Kakashi in this category, although he did come close. This is why the final point goes to Kakashi Hatake.

Kakashi Hatake vs. Obito Uchiha: Who wins?
We could, actually, give you a proper analysis of the things we have written above but that wouldn’t really do the trick when compared with what we have decided to go with. Namely, as Kakshi and Obito have, indeed, fought in the manga and the anime, we thought that it would be better for us to just recap this fight for you to see how it could help us understand this comparison.
During the Fourth Shinobi World War, Kakashi ponders on the past as he launches himself into a counterattack against Madara and Obito. Later, he and Obito move to the other dimension to have their “ultimate battle”. Upon arrival, he lunges at Obito using his Raikiri, but is stopped. After a brief conversation with his ex-partner, the Uchiha causes him to hit him with his Raikiri to show him that he doesn’t have a heart.
You can see that they pierced each other; him with his Raikiri and Obito with a shuriken. But it is later discovered that this was a match they were fighting with genjutsu. Kakashi and Obito finally begin to fight in earnest, and finally, Kakashi impales Obito with an electrified Kunai, making a giant hole in his stomach, and he flees to the real dimension.
Once Obito returns to the real dimension, Kakashi tries to gather strength to return to the battle as well, stitching up his wound and accumulating chakra. After sewing up the wound on his abdomen, Kakashi heads to the battlefield, where he appears on top of the resigned Obito to deliver the final blow.
However, he is stopped by Minato, who asks him and Obito to remember all the missions and adventures they went through together with Rin in the past, when they were even younger than Naruto. Obito tells them that when Rin died, he began to see the world from a new and wrong perspective and all the hopes and dreams he had for the future were shattered.
He further said that Naruto would also fail on his way. Kakashi tells him that Naruto is different, and that he will be less likely to fail than him, and that if he were to stumble, he would help him, as well as the companions he has obtained over the years and who are also involved in their dreams. Later, he reproaches Obito that if he had had friends around him, his hopes would have blossomed and he could finally see reality from a positive point of view.
This brief overview of the fight confirms what we have said and what the numbers have confirmed, and that is that Kakashi Hatake is the strgoner shinobi and that he can defeat Obito Uchiha easily.
