After defeating Pain... WHY WASN'T NARUTO MADE HOKAGE?!

    Previously... In the series, it was stated that the Hokage is supposed to be the strongest ninja in the village.

    Tsunade was somewhat of an exception, as when she was appointed, she was strongest after Jiraya, but since he refused the role, she was chosen. Despite Hiruzen's own strength, and status as Hokage... when he recognized that Minato was stronger, Minato was made Hokage. Age cannot be of too much concern as Gaara was made Kazekage at 15.

    At the point following Naruto defeating Pain... it is indisputable that Naruto was (BY FAR) the strongest ninja in the leaf! Danzo, Kakashi, and Tsunade working together could have NEVER defeated Pain! Yet, single-handedly (more or less) Naruto defeated Pain, cementing his status as the strongest ninja in all of the leaf, and by FAR!!!

    The whole point of an Kage is that they are the strongest... and thereby most capable of defending their village.

    We saw this with Hiruzen vs. Orochimaru (where Hiruzen died, but saved many lives of villagers)

    We saw this with Minato vs. Kurama (where Minato died, but saved many lives of villagers)

    We saw this with Gaara vs. Deidera (where Garra was defeated and subsequently died, but saved many lives of villagers)

    THEN... we have Naruto vs. Pain (where Nautro beats Pain does NOT die, and saves many lives of viligers)

    So... Naruto took on the chief responsibility of a Hokage... fought an opponent that was far stronger than Orochimaru and Deidera, and actually WON, yet... is NOT made Hokage?! WHY?!?!?!

    1. He is the Strongest and most capable ninja of defending the village

    2. He is older than Gaara and Hiruzen when they were made Kage.

    3. Already successfully executed the chief responsibility of a Kage.


    Danzo gets appointed?!?!?! For doing what exactly?!?!?! He is NOT the strongest, he did absolutely NOTHING when the village was attacked by Pain... the Hokage's role is to be the one to eliminate that type of threat/attack on a village, that is the chief responsibility of a Kage, and why they are supposed to be the strongest... yet, he did NOTHING... AND... yet, Naruto did!!!

    SO... WHY WASN'T NARUTO MADE HOKAGE?!

    Despite all Naruto did... his name wasn't even mentioned... they suggested Danzo and Kakashi, yet neither of them eliminated Pain, or where even capable of such a thing!

    Because Naruto is still a genin :awesome. Honestly though it's a good question. Maybe they didn't think he was mature enough yet to undertake such a responsibility.

    It's this. They actually address it much, much later in the anime.

    Being Hokage isn't just about strength, it's also about routine stuff like paperwork... Um, and leadership skills.

    Well firstly Hiruzen appointed minato because people wanted him to step down as hokage due to the deaths associated with the Second ninja war. Also a hokages role is not strength or power. It’s associated with making the right decisions in protecting the village. Also making sure you have capable ninja as support. Experience is another moniker of a seasoned ninja worth of being hokage. At this point in the series I don’t think Naruro had the maturity to become hokage and make the correct decisions especially the way he acted towards Sasuke and his crimes in the later arcs

    There's a lot more than strength to being a Hokage. Its a very significant part of the job since the Hokage needs to be someone that the world believes can protect the village. But its also important that they have wisdom, experience and many other qualities. Unfortunately Naruto didn't actually get much experience making tactical decisions by using subordinates effectively during the War Arc. But he definitely wasn't ready to become Hokage back in the Pein Arc.

    Same reason he wasnt made Hokage after he literally saved the entire world/all of shinobi kind in the war

    Hes an idiotic, childish moron who had some growing up to do

    Hes also mad dumb academically and when it comes to day to day shit

    Him running a country with flaws like that isnt a smart decision...Even back in the day when i watched part 1 naruto and i was YOUNGER than he was i didnt get how they were gonna get past that fact

    Because of plot.
    He still had to bring back Sasuke and he said he couldn't become Hokage if he couldn't save him, that and the fact he was too young which means he wasn't the next in the line.

    How does this help your point? being a dumb moron never stopped anyone from becoming a leader.

    in real world Naruto would've won presidency in an instant if he had saved the world.

    So yeah Naruto not becoming hokage is simply Kishi not wanting that.

    There's more to being Hokage than just being the strongest in the village. Being a good leader, a good diplomat, good strategist, having experience etc. also matters.
    Also Tsunade is the more experienced leader and actually saved the village from Shinra Tensei before Naruto showed up.
