{{translation|'''Missing-nin'''|抜け忍|nukenin|lit meaning=runaway shinobi|engtv=Rogue Ninja}} are [[ninja]] who left their village without the intention of returning and severing ties with the said village, often because they have committed criminal acts or to pursue other personal gains. The ninja village that they are from will often try to track them down and eliminate them. Several missing-nin do not stop wearing their [[forehead protector]], while others may discard them. [[Akatsuki]] members who do retain their headbands carve long, horizontal scratches across the symbol, to show they have rescinded their allegiances and rejected their villages. [[Kirigakure]] has a special [[hunter-nin]] task-force whose only objective is killing traitorous ninja. Not only is this done as a punishment for treason, but also to protect the secrets of the village, since it is possible to learn some of the village's techniques from the autopsy of their users.<ref>''Naruto'' episode 9</ref> The ninja organisation Akatsuki is composed mostly of [[S-rank]] missing-nin, except for [[Nagato]] and [[Konan]], who are the leaders of [[Amegakure]].

Depending on the [[Village Head|village leader's]] decisions, the missing-nin in question may be given leniency. The most prominent example is [[Sasuke Uchiha]], who is not marked for death by the Fifth [[Hokage]], [[Tsunade]], as a favour to [[Naruto Uzumaki]], and is instead to be brought back as a [[Konohagakure]] citizen. However, according to [[Kakashi Hatake]], a missing-nin is typically marked for death simply for defecting, and such mercy is rare.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 452, page 2</ref>

Leaving the village does not necessarily automatically make one a missing-nin.

Later, when Sasuke infiltrated [[Kumogakure]] and attempted to abduct their [[jinchūriki]], [[Killer B]], then attacked the [[Kage Summit]], the pardon Tsunade granted him was nullified and the Five [[Kage]] elevated his status to an international criminal, meaning that he is a missing-nin now wanted on a global-scale.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 457, page 12</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 459, page 9</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 464, page 8</ref>

Zabuza Momochi

Zabuza Momochi, a missing-nin who originated from Kirigakure.

Missing-nin (抜け忍, nukenin, English TV: Rogue Ninja, Literally meaning: runaway shinobi) are ninja who abandon their village with no intention of returning. Missing-nin are criminals in effect, if not before their defection then certainly after abandoning their duties. As such, missing-nin are listed in their village's Bingo Book to be killed on-sight;[1] Kirigakure's hunter-nin are specifically assigned to eliminate these missing-nin. Although some missing-nin may continue wearing their village's forehead protector, they no longer swear allegiance to their village; members of Akatsuki - all of them missing-nin - carve scratches across their forehead protectors to symbolize they have rejected their village.

Leaving the village does not necessarily automatically make one a missing-nin. Tsunade withdraws from life as a ninja and departs from Konoha following the Second Shinobi World War, but she is at no time considered a missing-nin by the village. Jiraiya informs her, however, that if she aids Orochimaru - an enemy of Konoha - that her status will change and he will be forced to kill her.

Likewise, being branded a missing-nin does not guarantee their former village will seek them out as a criminal. Itachi Uchiha becomes a missing-nin after the Uchiha Clan Downfall, but he does so under orders of Konoha's leadership; while most of Konoha's population does indeed consider Itachi a criminal and treats him as such, its leaders are privately aware that he remains loyal to Konoha. Similarly, when Sasuke Uchiha defects from Konoha and becomes a missing-nin, the Fifth Hokage decides not to pursue him as a criminal as a favour to Naruto Uzumaki. The Sixth Hokage Candidate later withdraws this leniency and orders his execution.[2] For his help during the Fourth Shinobi World War and the good word of the Sixth Hokage, Sasuke is ultimately pardoned for his crimes.[3]
