Those who have achieved the title of Kage (, Kage, Shadow) are the leaders of the five most powerful Hidden Villages and generally the most powerful ninja in their respective villages. Though there may be exceptions such as a ninja may be the most powerful at the time of being installed as Kage, but has since aged and a more youthful ninja may have become more powerful.

A Kage may retire and give the title to someone else; the title, once granted, is held permanently. This creates a case where there are two Kage at the same time, with only one of them actually active, as was with the Fourth and Third Hokage, where the latter had given up the title to the former, only to come out of retirement when the former died.

The Kage stand equally with the rulers of their countries, oversee the activities of their villages, and are the leaders of ninja society.

The five Kage have different titles depending on their village. Those titles are:

Village Name
Konohagakure Hokage (火影, , Fire Shadow)
Sunagakure Kazekage (風影, , Wind Shadow)
Kirigakure Mizukage (水影, , Water Shadow)
Kumogakure Raikage (雷影, , Lightning Shadow)
Iwagakure Tsuchikage (土影, , Earth Shadow)
