Fanon and Common Tropes in Fanworks

There is a lot of common tropes featuring Kakashi : both because of his big presence in the show, and his secretive personality.

The following list is non exhaustive :

What's under the mask

In the manga, Kakashi's face is never revealed, leaving free range to everyone interpretation. In one filler episode, we see Kakashi taking of a disguise, revealing a normal face with a mole on the chin[1].

Nevertheless, what lies below the mask has been a popular subject for the fandom. One popular take is simply a particularly handsome face. It can also hide special features, such as Dog teeth or other related dog traits.

The mask is often said to be a "filter" to protect Kakashi's enhanced sense off smell, which coincide with him being a tracker and having a dog contract.


In a filler episode, Kakashi trick team 7 by posing as a civilian photograph, Sukea. This disguise has been reused frequently, especially in tropes such as Identity Porn, or as an alias for a secret mission. [2]


Kakashi's ANBU identity is a dog most of the times, with the codename Hound or Inu. An other frequent identity is Dog.

When Kakashi is represented as an ANBU captain, he usually work with Team Ro.
