Sweet Love Interest

As a medical-nin, Rin's primary duty on miss skill with medical ninjutsu, being chosen to for a high-ranking mission in the Third Shinobi World War. She also successfully implant Obito's left Sharingan into Kakashi's damage eye socket in a short period of time and with only basic medical tools given the dire circumstances the team was in at the later developed a crush on Kakashi, una

of Obito's own affections for her although she was the only one of the team who cared for Obito. She also served as a peace-maker between Obito and Kakashi due to the fact that the two had a strong rivalry.

During their training, Obito used numerous attempts to try to tell Rin that he loved her, only to fail as Rin's feelings for Kakashi outweighed everything else.

On the team's first together without Minato, Rin was captured by ninja from Iwagakure- the Hidden Village in the Land of Earth with her captors trying to determine if she knew anything about Konoha's war efforts. Rin's will, however, proved too strong and did not break even under the genjutsu. She was later rescued by Kakashi and Obito but their victory was short-lived. In the attempt to save her, Kakashi lost the sight in his left eye, giving him the scar that he wields today and during the attempt to escape, Obito was crushed under a boulder, having thrown Kakashi to one side before the boulder crushed Obito.

Realizing that he was dying and that he would not escape, Obito offered Kakashi his own eye, which contained the powerful Sharingan. Rin performed the surgery and she and Kakashi escaped just as Obito was entombed underneath a landslide. Rin and Kakashi attempted to fight back against Iwagakure's ninjas but found themselves greatly outnumbered.

Thanks to the dagger he'd given Kakashi, Minato arrived in the nick of time, rescuing his two remaining students while also eliminating the rest of the Iwa gakure team.

After Kakashi recovered, the team, now composed of Minato, Rin and Kakashi successfully destroyed the Kannabi Bridge.

In the anime, it was shown that Rin was sent out on a mission with Kakashi and Guy. With their situation looking grim, Guy used himself as a decoy to lead away the Iwagakure shinobi, and Kakashi went after him. Rin later returned with backup from Konoha, which caused the enemy-nin to retreat.

Some time after the events at Kannabi Bridge, Rin was kidnapped by Madara Uchiha under the guise of Kirigakure's doing and had Isobu sealed into her, becoming its host with the move leaving her unconscious. She was also branded with the Puppet Master Seal, a move that prevented her from killing herself as the Kirigakure ninja plotted her to have rescued and brought back to Konoha where Isobu would be unleashed, ultimately destroying the village from within.

Kakashi got to the area where Rin was being held and he successfully freed her with the two teenagers fleeing for Konoha with various jōnin and Anbu-level Kiri shinobi on their tails.

On the way back to the village, Rin, having realized the truth, asked Kakashi to kill her with Kakashi refusing, remembering how he'd promised the dying Obito to protect her.

Unwilling to risk Konoha's safety and knowing that there was no time left for any other options, Rin chose to commit suicide to prevent Isobu's release which she did by intercepting Kakashi's Chidori which was originally intended for a Kiri-nin. The impact which consisted of Kakashi's electricity-engulfed hand subsequently plunged itself through Rin's chest, piercing her heart, thereby preventing Isobu from being freed but at the cost of killing Rin instantly.

Rin then used the last of her strength to whisper Kakashi's name seconds before she died before the boy she had always loved. Seconds later, Rin's corpse lay on the cave floor, the move leaving the enemy ninja stunned and both Kakashi and Obito horrified at what had happened.

This caused the Mangekyo Sharigan in Kakashi and Obito to awaken. But while Kakashi passed out due to exhaustion, Obito, having survived thanks to the efforts of his descendant, Madara Uchiha was left consumed by overwhelming feelings of rage and grief. He responded by going on a rampage in which he viciously and mercilessly slaughtered all the enemy ninja in sight, leaving no survivors whatsoever before the grim surroundings had Obito concluding that he was in Hell.

Once he'd finished, Obito then held Rin's dead body in his arms and vowed to create a world where they could be together again.

Despite her physical body dying, Rin's spirit stayed on in the afterlife as she watched for Obito to join her.

It is not known what became of Rin's body after she died, but it is presumed that Obito either buried her or that they were discovered, and her body was taken back to Konoha and buried in the Konoha Cemetery.

Rin was a young girl of average height with straight brown hair, which was cut in a chin-length bob that framed her face, and brown eyes.

When she was a child in the Academy, her hair was long, hanging to nearly the top of her shoulders. She also had a rectangular purple marking on either sides of her cheeks.

She wore a long-sleeved black top and a light purple apron-skirt, under which she wore black shorts. She also wore the standard Konoha forehead protector, along with a pair of sandals, red stockings that stopped at her thighs, and a small, red bracelet on her left wrist although it should be noted that the bracelet itself is visible in the anime, it is also visible in a few pages of the Naruto manga.

While on missions, Rin carried around a backpack instead of a pouch containing all of her equipment.

As an Academy student, she wore a simple outfit consisting of a light-coloured blouse with a bow tied in the middle and a simple, sleeveless haori.

As a genin, Rin wore a light purple outfit with shuriken patterns over it, with a belt around her waist and several pouches. Underneath this, she wore chain-mail armour, and calf-length sandals.

In the anime, during her mission with Kakashi and Might Guy, she wore the standard Konoha flak jacket over her light purple, shuriken-patterned outfit.


In addition to awakening the Sharigan for both Kakashi and Obito, the impact of killing Rin caused Kakashi to develop post-traumatic stress disorder from killing Rin, suffering many nightmares of her death (which would persist in adulthood), with one of them consisting of the impaled Rin whispering Kakashi's name before angrily yelling it, which awoke Kakashi and left him extremely terrified and guilt-ridden.

Rin's death greatly changed Obito as well as Obito grew to despise and hate reality for permitting such senseless deaths. This caused Obito to fall victim to his clan's Curse of Hatred and had him working alongside Madara Uchiha for years with Obito also continuing to work by himself and manipulate things from behind the scenes for decades.

In spite of dying at such a young age, Rin died a loyal shinobi in Konoha's eyes, having chose to die by suicide rather than become the one who would ultimately bring about Konoka's destruction while also signalling her resolve to sacrifice her life for the safety and security of Konoka.

Obito Uchiha

Obito had always held a torch for Rin. He was always far too shy to admit his feelings for her, instead trying to impress her with his ninja skills. This was in vain, as his partner Kakashi was always several steps ahead of him which earned Rin's admiration and also Obito's resentment.

Obito was willing to put his life on the line for Rin, holding her above everything else. This mentality led to Obito's turn to the dark side. Left shattered by Rin's death, Obito vowed to create a reality where he and Rin could be together, condemning the rest of humanity to an empty life.

After redeeming himself, Obito died fighting alongside Naruto, Kakashi and the others. He then passed on to the afterlife and met Rin who'd been waiting for him.

Kakashi Hatake

Rin developed a crush on Kakashi while they were in training together due to the fact that Kakashi was a genius, skipping ahead of his classmates. Every time Kakashi was promoted, Rin would plan a surprise party for him. These feelings may be one sided, as Kakashi was willing to let her die at a crucial moment, however, he may have only been willing to do so, because of the shame his father went through after assisting an ally. Kakashi seemed to have an inkling as he discouraged Rin from trying to pursue a relationship with him whilst telling her that Obito loved her, whether he did this to be a loyal friend to Obito or not, is unclear.
