Also Japanese for "Scarecrow", /Hatake/ Kakashi is a Jounin level ninja from the series, "Naruto" written by one of Japan's most valuable Manga-ka Masashi Kishimoto. He is the instructor of the main characters Uzumaki Naruto, Haruno Sakura, and Uchiha Sasuke...kun.
Though at first appearance may seem relaxed, simple-minded and... a bit of a moron at times, his abilities surpass many other shinobi. With his Sharingan Eye /Giving him the many names such as "Copy Ninja Kakashi"/ he has been able to immitate over a thousand Jutsu (Techniques). He obtained the Sharingan eye aproximately 14 years before the start of the Naruto Series during a mission with his teammates Uchiha Obito and Rin (Mind you, one's yet to know her name) Obito, saving Kakashi's life from getting crushed under boulders himself took the full blow. Half of his body remaining. Before his death, he requested Kakashi to have his sharingan eye as a gift, seeing as the day Kakashi had become a Jounin Obito refused to give Kakashi a gift. /Earlier on Kakashi's eye had been struck and became useless/ Rin performed the operation, transfering eyes. Shortly after, Obito was lost under more rock.

Spoiler for the Rockman.EXE Saito: Saito Hikari is the unknown name of the protagonist. He is known much better as the one and only Rockman.EXE, the Net Navi of Hikari Netto, the second Protagonist. Saito (only in the game and manga) is Netto's twin brother, who had died of a disease. His father, Yuuichiro Hikari, had been unwilling to accept his son's death, and transferred his entire consciousness to that of a Customized Network Navigator. The two, unlike any pair of NetOp and NetNavi, begin to share a mental link, and have special powers known only to them. Unfortunately, in the Anime Series, Saito does not exist, and is just known as Rockman.EXE, and Rockman.EXE alone.
Second Note: There is a slight pun towards their name. Being an anime series focusing around that of the internet, they were named Netto and Saito. Noticing this, they are pronounced almost exactly like that of Net and Site.
