    Ebisu was also a team head

    he was a special Jounin

    but I expect Hanabi is a Jounin by now as she is still clearly active

    Any Jounin can be a team leader. Kurenai was newly promoted when she led her team. Special Jounin may be able to lead teams, too, though Kishimoto mostly dropped the distinction of that rank and it's not clear if Ebisu was a special or regular Jounin when he led Team Konohamaru.

    Kurenai was new to the "elite jonin"

    Ebisu is an outlier. I'll go back and read what Kakashi said about him, but he was very esteemed despite his rank iirc

    She is a jonin, most likely. However, ranks mean jack-shit, so who cares? :catshrug

    Well, when we get a new character who is a Jounin and another one who is a Chuunin then the Jounin is likely stronger. Even more when we get a nameless fodder guy who is a Chuunin and a nameless fodder guy who is a Jounin.

    But yeah, if the Chuunin or Genin is listed as a super prodigy or/and got plenty of plot relevance then...no average jounin will compete with said guy.

    Boruto, Salad and Mitsuki are already powerful for Chuunin. If Boruto gets some offense focused power from his eye or tattoo, Salad gets a 3 Tomoe Sharingan and Mitsuki can stay in SM for at least 20 seconds then they will jump to Jounin or more.

    Simply being a Jonin is enough.
    No she wasn't. She was new to the Jonin rank itself.
    Kakashi only noted his ability as a teacher, and if him being a squad leader is an outlier, it's probably due to said skill as a teacher despite his rank.

    Asuma said she was new to the "jonin elite" and I don't remember anything else being said about her rank.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but a Jonin is an elite ninja by definition, right? :lbj

    Jonin = High/Elite Ninja

    Edit: Lewd? My post is lewd? How dare you!! :catflip

    You are correct. Way back in the Dawn Age of the Naruto fandom, mistranslations led people to think that there is some sort of "elite Jounin" status that Kakashi had, when in fact all Jounin are elite as Jounin literally means Elite Ninja.

    No one said she is a Senju tho. :dank
    And it's not like the wood is a Senju thing. Only Hashirama has it of that clan, out of nowhere as well. :dank

    Mangekyo started showing up in the Uchiha clan out of nowhere, though.

    It's not possible that no Uchiha was ever sad or angry enough to achieve ME before Madara and Izuna, but then everyone and their brother are doing it afterward.

    So, maybe mokuton is gonna start popping up in descendants of the Senju.

    How do you get Wood style?

    Hashirama cells...

    Whats hashirama?

    A senju :mjlol

    Its not a staple of the clan per say, no, but you need to be related to it somehow to get the ability

    Zetsus existed 1000 year before Hashirama, and they have wood release.
    Kaguya and Momoshiki have it as well. Do they have Hashi's cells? :dank

    Hashirama was the only guy in the past 1000 years to have Mokuton naturally. However, Madara and Orochimaru spread Hashirama's DNA around so damn much that it's no longer very unique. Moegi could have gotten Hashirama cells artificially.

    Or maybe Moegi is another Ashura reincarnation. :LOS

    Zetsu can transform into other people and copy their chakra.

    Your man comes home one day lookin for that booty, but its not your husband. Its really Tobi Zetsu.

    Moegi's mom probably forgot about that one day her husband came home and rocked her socks off, but after he was acting weird and kept asking her about bowel movements.

    Wait, seriously?

    Based on all my experience, I had it as follows:
    1. Genin
    2. Chuunin
    3. Specialist (Tokubetsu) Jounin
    Not jounin (all round) but possess a special skill that puts them in that tier (makes up for what they lack).
    Like Hayate Gekko (swordsmanship), Genma Shinarui (assassin) etc
    4. Jounin
    All found elite individual
    5. Elite Jounin
    Elite among elites. Possessing all round elite abilities, along with a special ability that takes them a level higher.
    Kakashi (Sharingan), Gai (Taijutsu), Kurenai (Genjutsu), Asuma (Ninjutsu)
    6. Kage

    Please give evidence of your mistranslation claim, as even the wiki (the collective intelligence of fans) maintains the elite jounin rank

    紅…お前は新米上忍… // Kurenai… you are a jounin novice...

    It's not uncommon for (earlier) official translations to mix & match English and Japanese words in order to clarify what the Japanese term means.
