Konoha Hidden Leaf

Hidden Leaf Village


Land of Fire




Konohagakure / Village hidden in the leaves


The Hokage is the Kage of Konohagakure, a title given to the town’s chief. The Hokage is by and large viewed as the most grounded shinobi in the town. There have been seven Hokage in the town’s set of experiences.

The Hokage position was made not long after the production of Konoha by Hashirama Senju, one of the town’s originators. He proposed the title to be given to his fellow benefactor, Madara Uchiha, however, the town’s populace rather chose Hashirama as the First Hokage.

Madara expected that Hashirama’s choice was the initial phase in making the Hokage office an augmentation of the Senju family’s power, a dread Hashirama denied. 

the entirety of the town’s Hokage have followed back to Hashirama here and there: the Second was his sibling; the Third was his understudy; the Fourth was an understudy of one of the Third’s understudies; the Fifth is his granddaughter and another understudy of the Third; the Sixth was an understudy of the Fourth; the Seventh is an understudy of the Sixth and the child of the Fourth.

The Hokage ordinarily chooses their replacement. In the event that they pass on or are generally crippled, the following Hokage is rather picked by the daimyō of the Land of Fire with the counsel of his board of trustees, the Konoha Council, the Jōnin Commander, and an agent of the Anbu.

This decision should then be affirmed by Konoha’s jōnin. On the off chance that one of the Hokage’s archetypes is as yet alive, they may get back to the office as opposed to choosing another Hokage, as when the Third emerged from retirement following the Fourth’s passing.

The Hokage’s introduction is a significant occasion in Konoha, with the greater part of the town joining in. 

When they expect the obligations of Hokage, their face is cut into the Hokage Rock and they generally move into the Hokage Residence. The Hokage’s office is situated in the regulatory part of the Academy.

Hokage are answerable for the majority of the town’s everyday issues, for example, allocating the town’s ninja to missions or getting subsidizing for the town’s undertakings and staff. The Hokage invests the majority of its energy in the town, just voyaging abroad for occasions of essential significance to Konoha. Each Hokage commonly lives as per the Will of Fire, a way of thinking that holds that Konoha is a family and that the Hokage is predominantly answerable for ensuring that family.

The remaining task at hand of Hokage can be very impressive, and as such resigned Hokage may keep on directing certain segments of the town or, if not that, will prompt the current Hokage on solicitation.

You will find our takes on the most important aspects of Konoha below. Please let us know your thoughts!

Top 5 Shinobi out of Konoha

The list below is not based on the characters’ power and abilities, but rather on how well the characters are written and the impact they have on the story. We believe these characters have the best combination of backstory, development and complexity.

Obito Uchiha

5. Obito Uchiha

Obito is who Naruto would most likely become if he didn’t have the right guidance. Obito, who experienced war and the loss of the person he loves the most at age 13 and so much more. Obito can be called ” the Naruto who lost hope”.

Obito had one goal: to become Hokage. He wanted to protect everyone he loves and create a world without conflict. In the end, he had to look and search in his heart to find himself again.


Jiraiya Naruto

4. Jiraiya

Jiraiya had a very pure view of the world, similar to Naruto. The difference was that with Jiraiya you had a much greater sense of realism and experience with it. When he said: “I believe that a day will come when people can truly understand one another,” you know that he’s seen many times where people didn’t understand each other, and it led to bloodshed and despair.

Jiraiya’s life was full of failures. He couldn’t protect his friend, sensei, or pupils. But in the end. he died a gallant, and he finally found the child of prophecy.

Uzumaki Naruto Shippuden

3. Naruto Uzumaki

A kind, loving boy who would never give up on his friends. Naruto saw hope when others only saw despair, and he saw goodness in people who were evil to everyone else. Despite being called a monster and growing up without a true friend or any parents, Naruto tried to make a change to become who he wanted to be.

Life is as bright as you see it, and there were many times where Naruto could see more darkness than light. But he never gave in to the negative. Not only that, but Naruto became a light for others as well. In the end, he became a flame that lit up the whole shinobi world.


Itachi uchiha

2. Itachi Uchiha

Itachi’s morality is perhaps the most complex of the entire Naruto franchise. He understood peace, but he understood sacrifice as well.

In the end, Itachi was willing to make that sacrifice. His decision came from more than simply following orders, it came from kindness. His final challenge was making sure that his little brother didn’t become the victim of his sacrifices.

Kakashi Hatake kid

1. Kakashi Hatake

Kakashi had to overcome loneliness as a result of the suicide of his father. Then, after finally being able to connect and make friends again, he lost them right before his eyes. Despite all this, we always see him with a smile on his face.

For most characters, this is enough for a character arc. But Kakashi still grows as a friend, sensei, and leader, while always reminding himself that those who abandon their friends are worse than scum.

Top 5 Trios

The list below is not based strength or who each shinobi eventually became individually, but rather on how well the three characters interacted with each other, and how well their relationship was written.

5. Team Guy

Neji and Lee have been the exact opposites of each other. Neji being a prodigy who was regarded as the strongest genin of his generation, while Lee was regarded as someone who could never become a good shinobi. Lee was willing to work harder than any other person however, ultimately making him earn Neji’s respect and the two of them became rivals. Unfortunately, Tenten mostly fell to the background whenever Team Guy was on screen.

4. Team Minato

The trio of Rin, Obito and Kakashi are iconic despite being short-lived. The relationship between Obito and Kakashi is one of the best written relationships in Naruto, and Rin fucntions as the perfect connection between the two, as they both share a deep love for the kunoichi. It is just unfortunate that we got to see so little of them. 

Team minato

3. Ino-Shika-Cho

These three are more than just a team, they’re family. They’ve always been together and have always been there for each other. Each of them processed the hardships of the shinobi world differently, including the death of their sensei Asuma. However, you cannot imagine one of them without the other.

Besides their unique relationship, their teamwork in fights stands out from others as well. They might not be as powerful as the other trios in this list, but when they fight, they fight as one.

2. The Legendary Sannin

There is something about these three interacting that always grabs your attention. The legendary Sannin have a sense of mysteriousness to them. And it makes you wonder how they were able to grow close to each other, and what happened for them to eventually go their separate ways.

Nonetheless, The Legendary Sannin are an iconic trio whose screen presence is larger than any other.



1. Team 7

Team 7 had to dig deeper than any other trio to finally become a team. Sasuke had to learn to let go of his hatred and find his purpose, Naruto had to stay strong to his ninja way even when it was easy to give up, and Sakura had to realize she couldn’t always rely on those two to save her. It luckily worked out in the end.

Most significant moments

There have been many incidents that have changed Konoha forever. We have listed the most significant ones below.

3. Nine Tails Attack

Many lives were lost during the Kyuubi’s attack on Konoha, including the 4th Hokage Minato and his wife Kushina. But the aftermath of the attack was even greater. The Uchiha were suspected of being behind the attack, which led to the village isolating from the rest. Eventually, another tragedy followed.

2. Uchiha Massacre

When the Uchiha clan was massacred everything changed in Konoha. Danzo and his Root organization were put on inactive, the village lost one of its strongest clans and was greatly weakened, and it consumed one of the Leaf’s most talented ninja with hatred.


Itachi attack

1. Battle at Valley of the End

A battle for the Hidden Leaf’s soul. The two most powerful shinobi in the world clashed, and it would determine not only the fate of Konoha, but of the rest of the world as well. After this battle, the Will of Fire became the definitive morality of the village and every hokage that followed. Who knows what would have happened if had Madara won…
