Thumbs up Konoha's Ranking System

As you all know, ninjas throughout the Narutoworld are given four basic ranks based on their skills: Genin, Chunin, Jonin and Kage. Although, there are other ranks, they'll be irrelevant to mention.

Each Konoha Ninja is ranked based on their individual skills (fighting skills, intelectual skills...). In my personal opinion, ninjas should also be limited to a specific age in order to progress to the next rank. Age should be a factor to determine Konoha's ranking system. If you think about it, you'll understand why. Although a talent young ninja may have great potencial as a shinobi, he may lack battle experience. Providing experience by assigning a ninja to missions based on his skills and age will prepare him better and more effeciently than giving him a high rank status, despite his young age, and assigning him automatically to a harder mission to fulfill, than he's used to. He'll be more likely to fail and gain experience, until he's fully adapted to performed those higher ranked missions, will be harder and will last longer. Unless it's a trully talented ninja we're talking about, but even so....

Now I ask you guys: Should age be considered a factor to determine whether or not, a ninja should progress to the next rank?

Note: The title was planned to be 'Ninja's Ranking System' but, I realized other villages may have other systems to classify their ninjas.

Well kinda.. I mean... you wouldn't want a 9 year old being kage.. >.> But a 12-13 year old could be chuunin or maybe Jonin like Shikamaru or Kakashi was... So kinda depends...

It's the same thing as a School System. Whetere or not you transit from one grade to another depends on your potencial. Age has an influence over it.

True, but even in modern school structures there are still gifted children who get advanced, like the 10 year old kid who was already graduating from highschool.

As a general rule, yes. However exceptions need to be made like with prodigies such as Itachi.

Young age doesn't always mean lack of field experience. Look at Kakashi. By 13 he could detect an enemy's presence, which comes with experience.

On top of that, there's a requirement of 8 missions done before taking the Chunin Exams, 3 of which need to be C Ranked iirc. After taking the Exams, which are experience in and of themselves in several areas, as Chunin, they get plenty of experience, be it as part of a Chunin Squad or as leading a Squad.

If you ask me, a village's military strenght has a big influence in its ranking system.

Take Sunagakure and Kumogakure as examples; the second fanbook gave Sunagakure a score of 2 out of 5 stars regarding its military strenght, whereas Kumogakure was marked a 5 out of 5 stars.

If a village is weak militarily then age should be considered a determinant factor in its ranking system. If potencial is spotted, I would agree on early promotion.

Militarily strong villages should encourage their shinobis in getting even stronger by not promoting them, until they meet the promotion requirements and achieve a certain age. This would proof to be beneficial later in the future because it would increase a village's military strenght (obviously ) and it would make a village's defenses even tighter.....

Although he was capable of detecting the enemy's presence, he recklessly charged a direct frontal attack with a Chidori towards his opponents, endangering the lifes of his comrades and the success of the mission. This only proved my point that without experience, potencial is insignificant.

But look what he became after he learned to not endanger his comrades at the end of that mission. He turned into the totally awesome and skilled Copy Ninja he is today.

I think that would be a good idea to an extent i mean to be a chunin at 6 is a serious joke. I think Genin should be like 8-12, Chunin 12-16, Jonin 17 and up, and Hokage around 25 and up it all depends if your intellectual and ready to take care of a village and know exactly to do your job as Hokage.

Battle experiences are gained in battles. Everyone has a start no matter how old they are, if one starts soon, he will get mature and successful soon, isnt it good? Moreover, young people get used to with things easier, faster and more effective than the old ones.

Yes that's a good rule, cause people with ages of 7-8 don't have the mentality to be Jonin maybe or something like that, but look @ Kakashi, I mean he was like i don't know the exact age when became a Jonin and yet he created Chidori, a pretty powerful technique...
