The Hokage are the leaders of the Hidden Leaf Village. In order to become Hokage, one must be an exceptionally powerful shinobi (since the reign of the Sixth Hokage, the rules state that one must become a Jonin before becoming Hokage) and respected by at least 85% of the Leaf Village citizens. So far, six shinobi and one kunoichi have obtained this title.
List of Hokage Edit
First Hokage Edit
Hashirama Senju was the First and Founding Hokage of the Hidden Leaf Village. He founded the village alongside Madara Uchiha. When he was alive, he was known as 'The Supreme Shinobi'. He's also the first Kage in history.
Second Hokage Edit
Tobirama Senju was the Second Hokage of the Hidden Leaf Village and the younger brother the First Hokage, Hashirama Senju. During his brother's reign, he served as the Hokage's Advisor.
Third Hokage Edit
Hiruzen Sarutobi was the Third Hokage of the Hidden Leaf Village and the student of the previous two Hokage, particularly Tobirama. His father, Sasuke Sarutobi, was a very powerful shinobi, with great intellect that gained him the nickname 'The Professor', which his son Hiruzen inherited. Hiruzen was also hailed as a 'Supreme Shinobi', just like Hashirama.
Fourth Hokage Edit
Minato Namikaze was the Fourth Hokage of the Hidden Leaf Village, known as the 'Yellow Flash of the Leaf' for his unmatched speed. He was the greatest and most powerful Hokage as of his time, a hero who died sealing the Nine-Tailed Fox into his newborn son.
Fifth Hokage Edit
Tsunade is the Fifth Hokage of the Hidden Leaf Village, the world's most powerful kunoichi and its greatest medical ninja. She is one of the legendary Sannin, alongside Orochimaru and the deceased Jiraiya.
