Five Naruto Villages
If you’ve watched Naruto or its successor Boruto, you’ve probably heard of these five villages. Each village has a rich history of thirst for power, politics, and war.
The first of these five ninja villages is Konohagakure, which was created by the Senju and Uchiha clans. Its ninja are experts in Water Release techniques.
Located in the Land of Fire, Konohagakure is one of the Five Great Shinobi Villages. It is renowned for its military might and influence. The village is led by a Kage, also known as the Hokage, and the current one is Rusaku Otsutsuki. It has had a total of seven Hokage in its history.
The first Hokage was Hashirama Senju, who died while protecting his clan’s jinchuriki Kagami Uchiha from the Akatsuki’s hollow axe reigment. He was succeeded by his brother Tobirama Senju, who became the Second Hokage.
The village’s ninja wear blue or black shirts with swirl patterns on the shoulders and green flak jackets. They often have a katana holster on their backs.
The Hidden Cloud village is home to a large number of powerful shinobi. During the Fourth Shinobi World War, their Raikage Darui was put in charge of the whole Allied Shinobi Forces!
They have a good relationship with Konohagakure and the other villages. However, they are very secretive about their internal politics. There is a small group of family elders and older ninja who believe that Kumogakure should never have merged with Konohagakure.
They are known for being laid back and friendly. Individuality is cherished and artistic freedom is encouraged. They also love to joke and make others laugh. However, complaining about taxes right in front of the Raikage is frowned upon.
The village of Sunagakure is home to some of the series’ most powerful shinobi. It specializes in kenjutsu, ninjutsu, genjutsu, and has two Jinchuriki who can control their beasts. The village also has a unique style of puppetry that allows its members to use rare techniques. Its shinobi also have great skill with airborne combat.
In the beginning of the series, Sunagakure debuted as antagonists before becoming the Hidden Leaf’s steadfast allies. During the Fourth Shinobi World War, its Cloth Binding Technique users were crucial in defeating Kabuto Yakushi’s reincarnated shinobi.
Many of its residents have a strong sense of pride in their homeland and are constantly battling oppressive forces from neighboring countries. Its ninja academy teaches specific combat abilities such as explosive techniques, dust release, rock clones, and terrain manipulation.
Shinobi Village of Artisans
In the Land of Rivers, Takumi village is known for its weaponry. However, when their village faced hard times they were ignored by other shinobi villages, leading certain skilled villagers to feel bitter. They decided to train harder, wear the Takumi symbol on their forehead protectors, and seek revenge. They went by the name of Four Men of the Holy Symbols.
Despite being a small village, it is incredibly powerful due to its unique skill in manipulating preexisting ice. It also has a special chakra armour that amplifies its users’ abilities. This allows them to perform a variety of jutsu, including Ice Fist and Ice Storm.
The Land of Water is home to a village named Kirigakure, the Hidden Mist Village. The Kiri ninja utilize water release techniques and are known for their ferocity in battle. The village has a history of bloodshed, notably with the Kaguya clan and its members. People with kekkei genkai have also been persecuted in the past, even being murdered in some cases.
Despite this, the village is still considered one of the strongest in the world. They are famous for their mastery of Water Release jutsu, and have produced some of the strongest ninja in history. Yagura Karatachi was the village’s Fourth Mizukage, but he is infamous for his cruelty and power-seeking. His successor Mei Terumi is working hard to bring the village back from its dark past.
