I have always pondered over the process of gaining the Chunin rank. In the present, Genin have to enter the Chunin Exam to gain it. But the Chunin Exam was said to be a substitute for wars between countries. So before the Chunin ´Exam´ started, did the Genin only need to show themselves worthy in some oother way to gain the new rank? —This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) .


Maybe they just needed to perform an act of unusual strength, loyalty, or something like that. Just my guess... —This unsigned comment was made by 4evainmyhart71296 (talkcontribs) .

It's also safe to say that Chūnin "promotion" was like a regular military promotion. If you'll notice, most of the ninja who lived before the Chūnin Exams have been promoted at least years after they graduated, to which they could have become Chūnin at younger ages due to their talent and skills.

Examples: Anko Mitarashi - Grad Age:10 Promotion: 12 Kurenai Yuhi Grad Age:9 Promotion: 13 Asuma Sarutobi Grad Age: 9 Promotion: 12

I can only point out an exception, which is Kakashi, who was promoted a year after he graduated. Still, he's an extremely talented ninja, so he might have been really good.Darkerratum (talk) 04:08, March 1, 2011 (UTC)
