Kakashi's trend of being late comes from Obito. Obito was almost always late, and was carefree about rules, leading to a rough relationship between himself and Kakashi.
Obito wore a ski mask-like pair of goggles with a see-through orange tint. He also wore a jacket and beige shorts, similar to how Sasuke Uchiha dresses . His hair's was spiky like Naruto's, and was a very dark brown (or black) color.
- Kakashi's famous quote: "Those who break the rules are scum, but those who don't help a comrade in need are worse than scum." (English dub version) was actually Obito's original quote.
- Kakashi's always late because he spends too much time honoring Obito after the Uchiha died.
- When asked why he should have waken up earlier to honor Obito (thus getting more time to do important information) by Yugao Uzuki, Kakashi replied that he does.
- Kakashi's Sharingan came from Obito, transferred through surgery performed by Rin.
