One of the longest-running jokes and most prevalent mysteries in the Naruto Series is Kakashi’s face. In Episode 469 of Naruto Shippuden, he finally shows his face twice.

Consistently among the top five most popular characters based on polls from specific Naruto Manga chapters, Kakashi’s actual face has been such a great mystery that an entire episode (Episode 101) was dedicated to trying to uncover his face. In the episode, his three trainees–Naruto, Sasuke and Sakura–try every trick in the book to discover Kakashi’s face, only to end with hilarious results.


However, Episode 469 of Naruto Shippuden reveals his face not once, but twice! The first time was while he was removing a disguise and another was when he hid in a corner while looking out for his young trainees.

There was mixed reactions among fans but the reveal was generally taken positively. One Reddit user had this to say:

It would have been good to see the trio’s reaction in finding out what their dear teacher looks like after all this time, but at the very least the fans know and that would suffice.  Alfred Bayle
