    Anyone think it's possible he's using some sort of genjutsu like Tsunade and is much older than he appears?

    I don't think it's possible for him to have learned the Shodai's technique from Shodai himself based on his apparent age, and if Shodai had taught it to someone who taught it to Yamato someone would've known about it.

    He wears Nidaime's headgear which is starting to seem less like a tribute and more like something fitting for someone of his ability.

    The major thing that got me wondering was the last quarter of 286. He talks about Tsunade breaking Jiraiya's bones for peaking on her. It's likely that this is probably a story that's been repeated amongst the ranks, but it seemed to me like Kishimoto was using the whole hot springs scene just so that Yamato could say that and express knowledge of things that happened a long time ago.

    Maybe he's around 20ish or so since ANBU members tend to be younger.

    Younger than Kakashi (because he refers to Kakashi as "sempai") and older than Sai or Naruto... So, 25 or so maybe?

    Yeah, he has to be younger than Kakashi, otherwise that doesn't make any sense. But at the same time probably not that much younger. If Yamato entered the ANBU long after Kakashi left, I don't see why he would call him Sempai. Kurenai, Iruka, etc don't call him senpai, because they were never in the ANBU with him. I would say he's about three or four years younger than Kakashi.

    Not necessarily it might just be that he had a higher rank than Yamato had hence the 'sempai'.

    Simmilar to how Kisame holds Itachi in high regard even though Itachi is younger than him.

    looks in his early 20s. So around 21-24 sounds possible.

    Yamato is 96 years old.

    He stays young with various youth creams, snake oil, and Orochimaru's special treatment.

    He doesn't switch bodies persay, but he can rejuvinate his body through a secret art, stolen and modified from Orochimaru.

    I would say he is younger than Kakashi, since he admires him so much. Looks like Kakashi is someone he looks up to, so I would say he is younger than Kakashi or at least behind Kakashi in the academy and in the ANBU. Lets say, at least a coupple years younger, maybe four or five, making him around 25.

    He called kakashi kakashi-senpai, so he's probably in his early 20's.

    He looks to be in his 20's, or very latest early 30's. Around Kakashi's to put it.

    Probably he is around 26...

    It would make sense, if he is Tsunades son.

    I'd say younger than Kakashi. Anko's age. Orochimaru's former subordinate. The one he didn't like *assuming a lot... XD*.

    i'd say a littel bit younger if not the same age as kakashi, at least he'd be old enough to have surviving relatives of the 1st and 2nd which would explain his wood jutsu

    Is he 29 or 30? He's 27 in the second databook, but it was 2 1/2 years from part 1 to part 2, so...

    I'd place my non-existant bets that Yamato's 27..or 28.Just below Kakashi's age.

    Although I too get the feeling that he is younger than Kakashi, couldn't Yamato still be the same age or older than Kakashi and still refer to him as "sempai." I remember in Roruoni Kenshin Shishiou refered to Kenshin as sempai despite being about three years older than him.

    The only Konoha Jounin introduced in part 1 that were younger than Kakashi, according to the databooks, were Anko 25, and Hayate who was 23 in the first book. According to the second databook Raido was 32, Aoba 31, Genma 30, Ebisu 29, Asuma 28, Kurenai 28, Asuma 28, Morino 28, Shizune 28, Gai the closest in age to Kakashi was also 27, but still older by 8 months. Despite all of those characters closest to his age being at least 8 months to a year older than him, they all graduated from the acadamey became chunins and then jounins in some cases years after he did.

    So in short couldn't the term sempai be used in regards to Kakashi having held the Anbu position for some time before Yamato entered Anbu?
