Obito Uchiha (うちはオビト, Uchiha Obito) appeared in the ककाशी Gaiden arc as a former teammate of ककाशी Hatake, and a member of Team Minato.
Obito graduated from the Ninja Academy at the age of 9, and was promoted to Chunin at the age of 11. During the Third Great Shinobi World War, Team Minato was assigned the task of destroying the Kannabi Bridge. Because ककाशी had recently been promoted to Jonin, he was to be left in charge of the mission. Before setting out, however, Minato Namikaze and Rin gave ककाशी gifts, something Obito forgot to do. Minato left them to go fight on the front lines, and Rin was soon captured द्वारा Iwagakure forces. ककाशी chose not to go save her, placing the mission's completion first, but Obito refused to comply, stating that, while those who break the rules are trash, those who abandon their फ्रेंड्स are worse than trash. They parted ways.
When Obito found where Rin was being held, he was immediately attacked द्वारा Taiseki. Kakashi, having had a change of heart, arrived in time to save Obito, and Taiseki used the Hiding Camouflage Technique to disappear. Invisible, Taiseki was able to damage Kakashi's left eye. To save his teammate, Obito awakened his Sharingan, immediately proving proficient enough with it to locate and kill Taiseki. Obito and ककाशी went to save Rin, but once she was freed, an enemy-induced cave-in started. Obito pushed ककाशी out of the way of a falling rock, and his right side was crushed. Unable to free himself, Obito asked Rin to give ककाशी his remaining Sharingan eye, to make up for not giving him a gift earlier. Once the eye transfer procedure was complete, Rin and ककाशी were forced to leave, the cave continuing to collapse around them. Obito was then crushed द्वारा boulders as he was thinking about his two teamates.
Obito was constantly tardy, always claiming he had been doing a good deed, such as helping an elderly woman carry her luggage. Minato referred to this as the truth, though ककाशी didn't believe him. Obito was also a little stubborn at times, yet, unlike Kakashi, who was very strict of the rules and regulations, he was usually carefree, and would rather save a teammate than complete a mission - the same as Kakashi's father, Sakumo Hatake. Obito would also lie to get out of trouble या just an uncomfortable situation - whenever he would start crying, he would claim he had something in his eye, though usually at the time he had his goggles on. Obito had romantic feelings for his female teammate Rin, though he never revealed it to her, not even when he was dying.
Obito looked similar to नारूटो Uzumaki, and they both also have similar personalities. Both नारूटो and Obito were desperate to get attention as a child, they both have an epic rivalry with their other male teammate (Sasuke and Kakashi), and they both have romantic feelings toward their female teammate (Sakura and Rin). Also, their partners have similar personalities: both Rin and Sakura are Medical Ninja, and both of their loves are और prominent than Obito's and Naruto's. Also, both ककाशी and Sasuke were the चोटी, शीर्ष students at the Ninja Academy, and they were both considered "cool" द्वारा most of the other students. Obito and नारूटो were considered "goofballs" या "knuckleheads" because of their recklessness.
