The intriguing mysteries and hidden histories of Naruto have helped keep the programme fresh and engaging throughout its run. Certainly, the passing of Rin Nohara falls within this category.
One of Naruto’s craziest moments was when Kakashi Hatake stabbed Rin in the heart. However, Episode 345 presented a very different picture than the one that actually existed. Don’t know why Kakashi decided to end Rin’s life. We hope to remove any uncertainty about this predicament.
Team Minato also included Kakashi Hatake, Rin Nohara, and Obito Uchiha. Even though they were a powerful unit, something happened that likely resulted in Obito’s death. But Madara Uchiha had rescued him using Zetsu’s abilities.
Obito eventually recovered and returned to his old acquaintances. When he arrived, Obito was in shock to see his friend Kakashi execute the woman he loved, Rin.
A Look at Kakashi’s True Motivation for Taking Rin’s Life
Let us begin by making this crystal obvious. Since Rin sacrificed herself to save her hometown, Kakashi Hatake didn’t end her life. There are now more unanswered questions than ever about her demise. Now we know how Rin Nohara died on the episode.
Isobu, the three-tailed beast, was planted into Rin Nohara by the ANBU of Kirigakure (Hidden Mist Village) during the Third Great Ninja War. After Rin had returned to Konohagakure, their objective was to let the beast loose (Hidden Leaf Village). But Rin understood the overall scheme, and she resolved to defend the hamlet she cared so much about.
Still, Kirigakure ANBU’s scheme could only be stopped by either extracting the tailed beast or committing suicide.
She had no alternative but to end her life because she was hopelessly outmatched by the beast and had neither the time nor the expertise to extricate it. She had already attempted suicide but was unsuccessful and therefore sought Kakashi’s help.
He might have considered it if it had been the rule-abiding Kakashi. However, Kakashi’s attitude had altered after Obito’s death, and he flatly refused Rin’s request.
During his struggle with the Kirigakure ANBU, Kakashi unleashed his ultimate technique, Chidori, which involves concentrating chakra in the palm of one’s hand to create a bolt of lightning so powerful it can through steel.
Due to her inability to commit suicide, Rin hid in the fog around the area where Kakashi was engaging the Kirigakure ANBU.
Finally, Rin stood between Kakashi’s Chidori and her own suicide. For one thing, Rin felt relieved to have helped Kakashi and her village. However, after committing suicide, Kakashi was overcome with grief and despair.
Repercussions of Rin’s Death
It’s true that a seemingly insignificant occurrence can have far-reaching consequences. As one might expect, Kakashi Hatake’s mental health took a serious hit after Rin’s death.
Kakashi’s youth was marked by both sadness and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). He doubted himself frequently, but eventually came to terms with his circumstances.
Obito, realising his comrades were in danger from the Kirigakure ANBU, sped off to save them. Once he discovered Kakashi had killed Rin, though, he lost it. As soon as Rin died, Kakashi passed out.
