Flame Village Ranks

1 post in this topic



These are the current ranks within the hierarchy of the Flame Village.

(Subject to change at any time)




Academy Student

Academy Students make up the student body of the Academy, where they are trained and prepared for life as a shinobi. They are not an actual part of the shinobi force, as they are still in the process of mastering the very basics of the ninja lifestyle. However, they can be conscripted as part of the war potential in times of emergency.



 Genin 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 labour, or, 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.



Chūnin are ninja who are qualified to guide other ninja and lead missions. Chūnin have reached a level of maturity and ability that primarily consists of leadership skills and tactical prowess. Genin who do not have the skills to become chūnin are weeded out in the Chūnin Exams. Chūnin are typically sent on C-rank or B-rank missions.


Tokubetsu Jōnin

 Tokubetsu Jōnin are ninja who, rather than all-around jōnin training, have jōnin-level ability in a specific area or skill, much like warrant officers in real-world militaries. They are elite specialists in their areas and are often assigned as subordinates to regular jōnin when their services are needed.



Jōnin are generally highly experienced and highly skilled shinobi who serve as military captains. Jōnin are generally able to use at least two types of elemental chakra.  It is not unusual for jōnin to go on missions alone. They are often sent on A-rank missions, and if experienced enough, S-rank missions as well.


Jōnin Commander

Jōnin Commander is a position in the shinobi system. As a representative of the regular shinobi forces, they are a member of the council, giving them a say in important matters such as choosing a new Hokage. They are the highest-ranking normal shinobi in the village, but still officially a Jōnin themselves.



Anbu are covert operatives dispatched by the Kage. Anbu protect the village from exceptional threats, conduct high-risk missions into enemy territory, and deal with extremely strong ninja. They are also responsible for carrying out assassinations, tracking, surveillance, and missions requiring specially trained ninja



Sannin are renowned ninja, hailed as the greatest shinobi of their generation. They are usually prodigies and train under the current Kage at the time.


Anbu Commander

The Anbu Commander is a high ranking position within the shinobi system. This individual acts as a representative of the village's ANBU Corps. The ANBU Commander answers directly to the reigning Kage and acts as his or her eyes and ears; constantly and diligently seeking out any and all signs of internal weakness, corruption, or insubordination. 



The Shōgun is a unique rank only given out to a shinobi with outstanding battle prowess during a time of war. (Usually the Anbu Commander) During this period they have absolute authority over all Shinobi ranks and facilitate all Shinobi activities.



 Kage is a title reserved for the leader of one of the village. A Kage oversees the activities of their village, from sending ninja on missions to making the hard decisions regarding the safety of their people. A village's Kage is generally acknowledged as its most powerful ninja.
