What would it be like if Naruto had earned the rank of jonin ? What would he look like in the series? Masashi Kishimoto, the creator of Naruto, answered the question a long time ago.

Naruto Uzumaki’s dream has always been to become Hokage of Leaf Village, the highest level within a village’s hierarchy, so it was never an easy task. For this, you need experience and be approved by jonin.

After Academy Student, ninja classifications are divided into genin, chunin, and jonin. Naruto never left genin during the first and second phase, that is, he was always far from being a ninja experienced enough to lead a group.

It is not known for sure what it takes to achieve the rank of Jounin but the meaning of the word means “high ninja”, which refers to shinobi with unrivaled skills.

Although this elite is far removed from Naruto at the beginning of the series, there is an official image created by Masashi Kishimoto that shows his titular character in Jounin uniform!

Masashi Kishimoto used his chapter breaks to publish illustrations of this type and this one caught the attention of fans.

As you can see, Naruto Uzumaki looks more like another character here. His appearance has changed a lot and it is possible to feel his “bad guy” look.

Although he didn’t reach that level, at the end of the series the boy was declared the strongest ninja in the world. What did you think of Naruto jonin?
