    While he was masked , kakashi saw him several times why did not kakashi recognize him ?
    İs it because hashi cells changing chakra ?

    Not only that but his chakra feel probably changed, like to a darker type then what he had before.

    I don't know about the rest but I was under the impression that once he seen kamui being used, he kind of guessed but was in disbelief because he should've been dead.

    There's nothing to suggest that Kakashi was a chakra sensor as a child. And even as an adult he relied on the sharingan which can't really see individual chakra signatures like the byakugan. Plus even if he was a sensor like Karin, his chakra probably would seem different because of Zetsu's interference. And Chakra colour is implied to be changed along with personality changes so Obito's would be vastly different when he was playing Madara.

    I doubt he'd recognise Obito just from seeing kamui either, even after he found out about Tobi's sharingan. He had no reason to believe Obito had survived. He didn't even work out that Obito's teleportation and intangibility were the same jutsu until late in the war arc.

    He thought probably that someone took an eye from death person. If someone was there, he should have an intel where is this cave.

    He was a skilled sensor, but I guess just wasn't good enough cuz even Minato didn't recognize him

    Denial was a big part of it, Kakashi viewed Obito like Jesus and Rin like the virgin Mary.

    Kakashi and Minato were in denial, they both are geniuses so they could def connect the dots
    -Spiky black hair (Obito is the only short hair Uchiha)
    -One right eye
    -A Sharingan
    Plus Minato is a sensor so he could recognize Obito's chakra and Kakashi saw Tobi's Kamui-like ability and they both still didn't say it was Obito.. They def knew it was Obito but were in denial. Can't blame them tho, how would Obito survive and why would he turn evil?

    Well when going around as Tobi Obito was very much alive, had a body that wasn't crushed by a boulder, was talented, evil and serious. Those are all traits that Obito didn't have so why should Kakashi recognize him? The only similarities is that they both have a Sharingan.

    These. He saw his friend get crushed and die right in front of him and didn't think there was any way in heck that he'd be alive after that.

    1. Obito was wearing a mask (gasp)
    2. Kakashi isnt a sensor
    3. Kakashi thought Obito died over a decade ago
    4. and that happened over the course of a few SECONDS. Let alone a Decade+.

    Kakashi isnt a skilled sensor...Hes never displayed avid sensory ability ever in this manga short of smelling stuff on occasion.
