Ninja Ranks

Post by Momo08 on Fri May 22, 2009 7:26 pm

As ninja develop throughout their career they are given ranks that correspond to their level of ability. They can also have one or more additional Ninja Jobs.

* 1 Academy Student
* 2 Genin
* 3 Chunin
* 4 Semi Jonin
* 5 Jonin
* 6 Anbu
* 7 Kage

Academy Student

The academy is where would be ninja start; they are not actually considered ninja until they graduate. Academy students take formal and practical tests of all sorts and are taught the basics. Basic weapon usage, such as simple kunai and shuriken throws, are commonly taught. Elementary ninja techniques, though they vary from village to village, are also taught. These include the Transformation Technique, Rope Escape Technique, Body Replacement Technique, Clone Technique, Exploding Tag: Activate, Cloak of Invisibility Technique.



Genin (Genin; Literally meaning "Low Ninja") are the lowest level of ninja and also the ones that display the most difference in power. When they become Genin, ninja start to do their bit for their village's economy – being sent on missions that the village gets paid for. They are typically sent either on D Rank missions, which are almost entirely risk free jobs of manual labor, or, very rarely, on C Rank missions, which are a cut above that and begin to verge on real "ninja" work that have a very low possibility of risk to the ninja involved. Because Konohagakure is shorthanded in upper level ninja because of the attack by Otogakure and Sunagakure, the village occasionally send Genin on higher ranked missions.


Chunin (Literally meaning "Middle Ninja") are ninja who are qualified to watch over and guide other ninja. Chunin have reached a level of maturity that primarily consists of leadership skills and tactical prowess. This is because the Genin who don't have the skills to become Chunin are weeded out in testing. Some of them, like Iruka Umino, function as teachers and others, like Shikamaru Nara, serve as team leaders in charge of small teams who need to make decisions and utilize the skills of the shinobi under their command to the maximum effect. Chunin are typically sent on C Rank or B Rank missions.

Semi Jonin

Semi Jonin (Literally meaning "Special High Ninja"t) are ninja who, rather than all around Jonin training, have Jonin level ability in a single area or skill, much like warrant officers of real world militaries. They are elite specialists in their areas and are often assigned as subordinates to regular Jonin when their services are needed.


Jonin (Literally meaning "High Ninja",) are generally highly experienced ninja with great individual skill who serve as military captains. They are often sent on A Rank missions, and experienced Jonin may even be sent on S Class missions (which are considered to be the greatest difficulty). It is not unusual for Jonin to go on missions alone. Jonin are generally able to use at least two types of elemental chakra, some genjutsu, and above-average taijutsu skills.


Main thread: Organization - Anbu


A Kage (Literally meaning "Shadow") is the leader of one of the five most powerful Hidden Villages and generally are also the most powerful ninja in their respective villages.
