    he isnt a chuunin because he left konoha to train for 2.5 years. upon return everyone else besides, sasuke and naruto of course, were at least chuunin level. and then he had no time considering he needed to find sasuke and deal with akatsuki

    mind you... you can go from genin to hokage. so it is possible to move up once they deem his worthy.

    he hasnt taken the chuunin exam...i would expect a short time skip again after this arc(6 months-1 year) and then he is a jounin...he has learned a lot in 3 years, especially tactically. so he is jounin level.

    Naruto hasn't become a chuunin for the simple fact he hasn't had a chance to retake the exams. The next time he retakes the test, if he ever does that is, his odds of becoming one are quite decent. By the time the three-year deadline approaches, which should only be about another three-four months at best, the Chuunin Exams and possibly Naruto's chance to retake them will become availible.

    There are 2 ways to classify rank

    Rank classification numero uno: The rank a shinobi village gives you depending on you abilities/intelegence/leadership skills. These are mearly titles that dont really show the power of an individual some times. For example by village standereds Sasuke is still a genin however he is really jounin level right now. In the end offical ranks in villages are earned for certain qulities and not really so much about being godly strong.

    Rank Classification numero dos: Basicly the way to judge powerlevels in Naruto such as saying Naruto is jounin level or that Jiraiya is Kage level. In other words its another way of saying "Its over 9000!!!!!:nuts"

    Naruto is strong but he doesnt seem to be so smart and calm to be a good leader in a group and it takes more than being the strongest to become a Hokage let alone chuunin. Naruto's fighting skills are jounin level but in terms of his leading skills I dont think there really chuunin level so much.

    Naruto will never be a Chuunin. If he were given the title now, it would be like saying "Oh yeah, you're only a Chuunin".

    And the window for him becoming a Jounin may well have gone by now for much the same reason. When you're stronger than your village's strongest Jounin, do you really need the rank?

    Like a few people mentioned before, rank means nothing hell you have genin who can take out chunin and even Jounin. Though it would be nice to see him be given a higher rank then he is, we will have to see if it happens.

    even though rank means nothing apparently, it would still be nice for naruto to become a chuunin. when other people below him start to surpass him he'll look pretty lame. kishi should definately make naruto chuunin+ soon.

    2 Reasons:
    1.) He'll jump from Genin to Hokage.
    2.) He'll stay a Genin until he dies.

    Yeah that's true, but that doesn't seem to be the case with Naruto. If he ever wants to be Hokage, then he has no choice but to ascend up the ranks. You could tell at some points that Naruto was jealous at his friends (especially Gaara) who gone up a rank or two. It rank may not mean much as it's just merely a title, but for Naruto it's a mark to which proves to everyone that he can be one of the strongest shinobis ever as well as the potential to be the greatest Hokage ever.

    Sasuke is not a chuunin either because he left Konoha....

    Both Naruto and Sasuke have matters to be involved with and their abilities are clearly above chuunin level...

    I personally would like him to stay a gennin it would be cool if he was the first gennin to be promoted to Hokage.

    Kishi needs another chuunin arc if he promotes Naruto unless there was a time-skip in which he becomes a chuunin!
    Kishi wouldn't put another chuunin arc unless he has a new type in my opinion!
    Another time skip is the most probable choice!

    considering the situation konoha is in right now, i don't think naruto has the time to be participating in a chuunin exam.

    1. Time he was away from Konoha training with Jiraiya.

    2. He will most likely but forgo the rank of Chunin and go straight to Jonin.

    Tsunade already recommended him for Hokage after he mutures. Given that he only needs to mature, I think that says how powerful he is and where he would be right now if he wasn't so hotheaded...

    i say from genin to hokage unless there is a part 3, then he might have a genin team before he becomes hokage

    rank is pointless, but i would like it if he had a higher rank.

    karin i agree with you so much. Naruto definately wants to be a higher rank.

    He doesn't care if he is considered to be above gennin level by people non-existant in his story (i.e. us, the people reading naruto), he just wants people to know that he rocks and he can prove it with his talent AND his rank

    Chuunin rank at this point is an insult. He might go from Genin to Hokage, but more than likely Tsunade will give him a field promotion to Jounin.

    I think thats the irony in the manga. He will be seen as the strongest yet weakest (in rank) . He will become hokage one day and never get past the genin rank. I think it will be like that just to piss alot of people off. And who is gonna argue, he'll go 4-tails and pwn there asses lol.:laugh

    You say this although he hasn't mentioned it since returning from his two year journey. Nor is it even important to the story. The rank is meaningless as it stands right now. Naruto is already stronger than Konoha's top Jounin. What the hell does he need a Chuunin rank for? LoL

    Since when does ranking meant anything in the Naruto world? Nagato (a little kid) owned a Chuunin for god sakes. I don't care what kind of bloodline he has. That is crazy. A kid that knows no jutsus at all.
