Gennai (源内, Gennai) is a genin from Konohagakure.


Gennai was already doubtful that he could pass the Chūnin Exams and become a chūnin but after he saw his team-mate Komugi quit the Exams, Gennai became even more doubtful and quit as well.


Gennai has a short crop of dark brown hair and dark eyes. He wore a high-collared brown suit with matching pants and a beige sash. He also has a blue-clothed Konohagakure forehead protector which he wore in a traditional method.

Part I

Chūnin Exams

He and the rest of his team-mates entered the Chūnin Exams. When Komugi chose not to complete the first phase afraid that they would never get the opportunity to retake the test again as Ibiki Morino told them, the rest of his team was disqualified as well.

In Naruto's Footsteps: The Friends' Paths

In the anime, about two years later, Gennai and his team partake in the joint Chūnin Exams co-sponsored by Konoha and Sunagakure. For the first phase of the exams, Gennai and his team-mates were split into different rooms, with him being placed in room two. After settling in, Shikamaru Nara, the first exam proctor, explained the goal of the written test on a monitor.[2] His team ultimately passed the first round since their combined score equalled 100 points as it was supposed to, and by leaving the bonus question unanswered. However, a preliminary round had to be held to lessen the many participants there were. The preliminary round involved a race to Suna where only the first 30 teams to arrive at the destination would being qualify for the second phase.[3]

Ultimately, his team were among the 30 teams to make it to the checkpoint. The next day, the second exam proctor, Temari, announced the start of the second round taken place within Demon Desert.[4]
