Why Did Kakashi Kill Rin?


You & I have seen that Team Kakashi consisting of Kakashi Hatake, Obito Uchiha, and Rin Nohara was a Great Combination.

They were directly taught by the Fourth Hokage: Minato Namikaze.

Their Team had the exceptional ability as compared to other teams of the same age margin.
They successfully carried out various Missions until the one where Rin was killed.

Who killed Rin Nohara?

Well, Technically it was Kakashi by whom Rin got killed. But don’t get me Wrong, Kakashi was actually trying to save Rin from Hidden Mist Shinobi.

Rin committed Suicide of her very own will.

So, without delaying the Answer further, let’s get to the Topic.

Why Did Kakashi Kill Rin?

Simple Answer

Kakashi never intended to kill Rin. It was Rin who got herself killed by Kakashi’s hands.
Rin forced herself in Front of Kakashi’s Chidori when she came to know that she was made Three-Tails Jinchuriki by Hidden Mist.


Now, Rin was Killed by Kakashi. Yes, as weird as it may sound, but It was not Kakashi who killed her of his own will.
It was Rin’s own Choice to get killed by Kakashi. Kakashi never intended to kill his own teammate.

Rin wanted to take her last breath in the hand of someone near and dear to her. That’s why she impaled herself on Kakashi’s Chidori.

Reason Why Rin Got Herself Killed

Team Kakashi was assigned a Mission. Rin was included in that specific mission.
They were on their way when Rin was kidnapped by Hidden Mist Shinobi.

Hidden Mist had planned to kidnap Rin and use her as a Test Subject as the Three-Tails Host (Making her Jinchuriki of Isobu).

They planned to put Hidden Leaf under Tailed Beast Rampage. They sealed Three Tailed Beast inside her to unleash it by undoing the seal once she got back to Hidden Leaf.

Rin knew she was made Jinchuriki by Hidden Mist Village. Once she found out what was going to happen, she chose to suffer Kakashi’s Chidori by jumping in front of Him to lead herself to Death in an attempt to save Hidden Leaf Village from any Tailed Beast Attack Rampage.

Rin ruined their plan by getting herself killed by Kakashi after she was made a Jinchuriki by Hidden Mist.

Madara’s Secret Plan

  • When Madara tries to take back his Rinnegan that Obito currently has in his left Eye, reveals a secret plan regarding Rin.
  • The plot to make Rin into the Three Tail’s Jinchuriki and have her rampage through the Leaf Village was actually Madara’s plan and not the hidden mist’s.
  • Rin took advantage of Kakashi’s attack against the enemy to avert the plot at the cost of her life.
  • But that was also part of Madara’s plan. To pitch Obito into darkness and make Obito his pawn.
  • Madara deliberately had Obito see all that. He waited for the perfect opportunity, when Minato was away on another mission, Madara manipulated the Mist Shinobi into kidnapping Rin, leaving Kakashi so he would come after her.
  • The other purpose of this plan was that Madara could see the extent of Obito’s unleashed power.
  • Madara also planted a curse seal Tag inside both Rin and Obito.
  • The Curse Seal Tag is meant to turn them into a puppet. One that would restrict their movements should they try to remove it from inside the body it’s implanted in.
  • Madara can also manipulate a person’s body with the cursed seals.
  • Madara made both Rin and Obito his pawns with this plan.

Why Did The Hidden Mist Want Rin?

Hidden Mist wanted Rin to use her as a Test Subject for Host of Three-Tails.
Kirigakure needed her to seal Isobu ( 3 Tails ) inside her to attack a hidden leaf once she heads back to Konoha.

Was Rin a Jinchuriki?

Rin was not always a Jinchuriki. She was made a jinchuriki on a mission alongside Kakashi and Obito.
They made Rin a Jinchuriki on purpose to destroy Hidden Leaf Village.

Why Did Rin Jump in Front of Kakashi?

Rin was captured by Hidden Mist Village who made her a Jinchuriki of Three Tails in hopes of destroying Konoha.

She asked Kakashi to kill her but he refused. Because of this, Rin jumped in front of Kakashi’s Chidori and took a lethal blow to save the village from Tailed Beast Rampage.

Why didn’t Rin wait for Reinforcement instead of choosing to Die?

Now, this is not explained in the Anime but there is a reason why she didn’t wait for Reinforcements.

Enemies Surrounding them

When Kakashi and Rin were heading back, they were surrounded by Hidden Mist shinobi.
Those Shinobis were purposefully chasing Rin and Kakashi to drive them back to leaf and succeed in the attempt of Tailed Beast attack.

When Rin understood this, she felt this was the only way to overcome and destroy their plan.

Which Episode Does Kakashi Kill Rin?

Well, it’s Episode 345 of Naruto Shippuden when it happens.

In this episode, Rin Jumps in front of Kakashi when he is using Chidori to kill Hidden Mist shinobi.

Obito reaches the battlefield and goes insane watching Kakashi’s Chidori hitting Rin.

He dominates and kills all Hidden Mist Shinobi present on the battlefield.

Which Chapter Does Kakashi Kill Rin?

In Naruto Manga – It happens in Chapter 675.

Where Did Three-Tails Go After The Death of Rin?

Tailed Beasts don’t die when their host dies.

Let me tell you the misconceptions about Jinchurikis.

The Tailed beast inside Hosts is Not really inside them. Being a jinchuriki creates a link between the Tailed Beasts’ World ( where jinchuriki resides) and the Shinobi World. It’s actually like a preplaced summoning jutsu.

Jinchuriki is the host of Tailed Beasts, but not bodily host. So even if the Jinchuriki dies, the beast wouldn’t be killed.

Tailed Beasts just lose the link to get into the Shinobi world unless some previous precautions are taken to bring them back to this world.

Rin is the only known jinchuriki to have died without the tailed beast first being extracted. As such, Isobu is the only known tailed beast to have “died” and been revived.

So, After the Death of Rin, Three-Tails ( Isobu ) went back to Tailed Beasts World after which it was Manifested in Kirigakure, thus sealed into Yagura, member of Kirigakure ( Village Hidden in the Mist ).

What about Kakashi

It was not Kakashi’s Fault that Rin got killed.

Knowing all this, it’s up to you whether you call Kakashi a Bestfriend Killer or the Hero who tried to save his Bestfriend’s Life but accidentally committed this act which he had been continuously denying to act upon.

Final Words

Rin died to Kakashi because she found no other way to protect her village.
She wanted to die at hands of someone she loved.

Rin Purposefully gave her life to Kakashi’s Chidori trying to Protect Hidden Leaf Village from Tailed Beast Rampage planned By Hidden Mist.

This was a Sacrifice she Volunteered for Konoha’s Safety.
