How many gates do you think Kakashi can open?

    I know he's only actually opened the 1st gate before, but do you think he's trained enough to be able to open the 2nd/3rd gate? Maybe even the 4th/5th? If you think Kakashi can only open the 1st gate (which is completely valid, it's supposed to be subjective) then why do you think he can't do more?

    And if he is able to open more than 1, do you think he chooses not to because of his average-ish chakra pool/stamina?

    My personal opinion is he can reach the 4th/5th gate by the War Arc but it is extremely taxing on his body so it wouldn't have a long duration, it has too many downsides to it and his body is simply not suitable for the gates. Using something like the 5th gate would probably leave him bedridden for a good few weeks so it obviously wouldn't be a good idea, but the question in mind is whether or not he's capable. But at the end of the day, his vitality simply isn't strong enough for this type of stuff and he'd probably rather spend his chakra on wielding the Sharingan. If Rock Lee as a 12 year old Genin could open 5 gates, I'm thinking Kakashi maybe in his twenties (probably trains less often and less hardcore/less of a natural taijutsu fighter) could feasibly train to 3-5 gates, especially with Gai challenging him all the time.

    Originally it was the same reason he could barely handle his base Sharingan and MS, shit stamina.

    But since that changed near EoS, I believe that if he actually applied himself he could open at least 3. It's never stated that it takes some special condition to open the Gates, just extremely hard effort. So potentially I don't see why he couldn't open all 8.

    Not anything that will change the result of a battle I'd say.

    So just 1?

    Once again, it's not about what he wants to open (Obviously he doesn't want to open any besides 1 for training cuz he hasn't done so lol) but rather how many u think he should be able to

    The gates seem like you could be able to open them as soon as you pass certain thresholds in strength/power/vitality rather than chakra pool or stamina and Kakashi's not even close to being the weakest character in the series

    I can see him opening 2 gates, maybe 3. I don't see Kakashi devoting that much time of trying to go above considering his stamina is a bit on the low side.

    I'm thinking that 3 gates is probably the most that Kakashi should be able to open without being a massive stamina/physical freak.

    But him opening more than three? I just don't see it.

    If Kakashi seriously wants to achieve the impossible and open more gates, then all he needs to do is believe in the power of youth and he's good to go. :mgnt:gailee

    It worked for Lee and Guy-sensei.

    Fodder ninjas were able to open up to 5 gates along with lee to bust the meteor...kakashi was already able to open 2 gates at start of the story..honestly i dont think theres much holding him back from opening higher gates.

    I wonder what stopping Naruto and Sasuke from using gates.

    Especially Naruto due to Rikudou body and healing he should be able to use 7th gate without any set back or risk.

    Now imagine RSM Naruto opening 7th gate.

    Hell his rsm healing along with uzmaki body and kurama might even allow him to use 8th gate now with the hashi arm aswell.
