    We've seen many posts asking when or if Naruto will advance in level and climb to Chuunin, Jounin and ultimately Hokage. I wanted to point out one thing that seems to get lost among the hundreds of "yes/no" replies.

    Let's all make this quite clear. If Naruto were to take part in another Chuunin Exam, it would be way too easy. He is too powerful to compete with Gennin. It would be totally out of place, and it would suck too.

    Now...
    When the purpose of the chuunin exam was explained by Sarutobi. The exams take the place of war. That means that the old way of advancing in level was through actual true, life and death COMBAT.

    These scenarios were avoided with the advent of the exam. They stopped losing valuable shinobi that way. However, now Naruto is facing so much danger and action right now that such situations are not in short supply.

    Also, let's not forget about Danzou's plans. There is a war looming and that is going to provide lots more fighting. In that fighting, reputations will be established and levels raised. Naruto doesn't need the exam to get his rank up.

    This hardly brings anything new to the table? Besides, whats the use in having a kid who could level half of your village in seconds fighting some genin fresh out of the academy? Bunshin and Kawarimi arent going to save you against Naruto (let alone Naruto KN4 lol...)

    It'd be fun to watch the destruction, though. You have to at least give in to that fact. Watching Naruto smash some helpless Genins would be funny as all.

    Naruto can enter himself as a 3 member Genin team, Naruto and two Kage Bunshins. All three will make it to the main matches and get promoted to Chuunin lol.

    I agree, Naruto he could be promoted to Chuunin by Tsunade. With him being indebted by the KazeKage (Gaara), I'm sure there would be no objections on behalf of the Sand Village. And Like you said, he is too powerful. Not to mention that the next Chuunin Exams will fall when "time's up" for Sasuke.

    But If Naruto had to do the Chuunin Exams again, I could see the humor of him going KN1 and scaring away the competition just in the first few minutes. :laugh


    The most likely senario is that Naruto will stay a Gennin for a few more years. He isn't exactly ready to be promoted to Jounin because of his 'hot-headiness' and his lack of leadership skills, which is important for Jounins.

    One of the earliest of my legendary feats was proving that a ninja village doesn't need to promote Genin through the Chuunin Exam.

    Anyway, Naruto becoming a Chuunin would be rather out of place. If he takes the Exam, then he would just breeze through it with no effort, which doesn't make for a particularly gripping story. But if he's just awarded the rank, it's effectively Konoha saying that he's only a Chuunin, which isn't something you really want to hear when you've just surpassed the best Jounins of your village.

    right now, the chuunin exam is really that relevant, because all hell is about to break loose upon konoha and the whole naruto universe

    Truth be told Naruto has so much power that it wont matter if he gets promoted because everyone knows that he can serve up an ass beating whenever he wants.

    dunno if it's lost but the point is that the chuunin exam won't be needed. Naruto is going to end up earning a reputation through battle and that'll be what is considered. Not his training with Gennin.
