    The Leaf Village Ninja (木ノ葉隠れ忍者, Konohagakure Ninja) is a team from the Naruto series created by Masashi Kishimoto. The series first began serialization in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump in November 1999. It first appeared in Naruto Volume 1 CH. 1 "Uzumaki Naruto".



    The Hokage (火影, Hokage) is the leader of the Leaf Village. Only the most skilled and admired of the Leaf Village Ninja are appointed to this position. They are responsible for governing and protecting the village and its people. Each of the Hokage has had their faces carved into the memorial mountain that overlooks the village.

    First Hokage

    Hashirama Senju is the first Hokage and one of the main founders of the Hidden Leaf Village.

    Second Hokage

    Tobirama Senju is the Second Hokage. He is the younger brother of Hashirama, and he took on the role of leadership after his brother's death.

    Third Hokage

    Hiruzen Sarutobi is the Third Hokage. Hiruzen was the disciple of the Second Hokage, and his time in leadership was one of the longest. While he had eventually retired and appointed a Fourth Hokage, he returned to lead after the death of the Fourth.

    Fourth Hokage

    Minato Namikaze is the Fourth Hokage. He was a disciple of Jiraiya, who was one of the students of Hiruzen Sarutobi. He sacrificed his own life to stop the Nine-Tailed Fox's rampage from destroying the village by sealing it into his own son, Naruto Uzumaki.

    Fifth Hokage

    Tsunade is the Fifth Hokage. She's the grand daughter of the Hashirama Senju and one of the legendary Sannin, that made of the students of Hiruzen Sarutobi. She was selected by the Leaf Village Council to be Hokage after Hiruzen's death.

    Sixth Hokage

    Danzo Shimura was temporarily the Sixth Hokage. He took leadership as Tsunade was in a coma from defending the village against the Akatsuki. He manipulated his way into the title, but was killed soon afterward.


    The Jōnin (上忍, Jōnin) are one of the highest class of ninja that can be obtained. On top of being the only rank of ninja to be given S and A Class missions, they are often also in charge of training squads of Genin-class ninja out of the academy.

    Included among the Jōnin are the ANBU Black Ops (暗部, Anbu). These are a secretive military class that go on many of the most secretive missions. They all wear decorative masks, and their real names are frequently never known.
