The Jōnin Commander (上忍班長, Jōnin Hanchō) is a position in the shinobi system of Konohagakure. 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. The most recent person known to hold the title of Jōnin Commander was Shikaku Nara.
- In Kumogakure, there is a similar position called Head Ninja. Unlike "Jōnin Commander", "Head Ninja" is a separate rank.
