Jōnin

Asuma, Kurenai and Kakashi, three of Konoha's jōnin.

Jōnin (上忍, Jōnin, Literally meaning: High Ninja, Meaning (Viz): Elite Ninja) are generally highly-experienced shinobi with great individual skill who serve as military captains. They are often sent on A-rank missions, and experienced jōnin may even be sent on S-rank missions (which are considered to be the greatest difficulty). It is not unusual for jōnin to go on missions alone. Jōnin are generally able to use at least two types of elemental chakra,[1] some genjutsu, and above average taijutsu skills.

In order to become a Jōnin you must be reccomended by other Jōnin. Then you must pass a test then the Kage himself will determined if you are worthy. There are also Special Jōnin, who aren't as strong as Jōnin, but are stronger than Chunin. Special Jōnin are Jōnin that specialize in a certain area, such as supervising or healing. The toothpick dude at the Chunin Exam was a Special Jōnin. It is mentioned that jōnin are appointed,[2] however there was mention of a Jōnin Exam in the anime's Kurama Clan Arc. When a ninja becomes a jōnin, they may be assigned a three-man genin team to supervise. One part of their duties is to help instruct and train these genin to become competent ninja. In Konohagakure, it is up to the jōnin to decide whether a candidate Hokage would be given the position permanently. They also have a special rank known as Jōnin Commander. Shinobi who have jōnin-level skills only in a specialised area are classified as Tokubetsu Jōnin.
