== Meaning of Hokage ==
 
In Japanese, "hokage" means fire light. Although it is true that the letter "kage" normally means shadow, the meaning changes from shadow to light in specific combinations of kanjis. Other examples are tsukikage -> moonlight and hoshikage -> starlight. [[Special:Contributions/220.100.22.39|220.100.22.39]] ([[User talk:220.100.22.39|talk]]) 16:35, June 22, 2013 (UTC)

:"Enter office" there means exercise the position, not move into the Hokage's Residence. Saying he was a candidate already points out he had yet to officially become Hokage.

An unnecessary trivia point

I'm talking about this "According to Asuma Sarutobi, his student Shikamaru Nara has the ability to become Hokage, but won't due to him being too lazy to want to." i mean its just someone saying that someone else could be hokage if they tried, what made it deserve a place in the trivia?--Charmanking2198 (talk) 19:10, September 14, 2012 (UTC)

If Kakashi had been mentioned only once as having potential to be Hokage, he'd be mentioned, why not Shikamaru? It's in the trivia section, it relates to the subject of the article, while still not being vital to it. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 19:14, September 14, 2012 (UTC)

No? kakashi was going to be appointed as the hokage for real, Shikamaru never even got close to it.--Charmanking2198 (talk) 19:35, September 14, 2012 (UTC)

Yes. But above everybody else in the series, Shikamaru was stated to have Hokage potential. A lot of people aspire to become Hokage, but not everyone has the potential to. That's why Kiba for example isn't listed as wanting to become Hokage (not that he doesn't have the potential) or what not.--Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol (talk) 19:38, September 14, 2012 (UTC)

I don't think the stuff about people with potential to be Hokage is unnecessary, but I was thinking, we've listed several other people as having held the position, if only temporarily and the Trivia is running a bit long, so could I add a sub-section titled "Non-Canon Hokage" and throw in links to them with a short explanation, it might make the whole think look a bit neater. --Hawkeye2701 (talk) 15:30, April 9, 2013 (UTC)

Danzo's info

Can anyone edit some of Danzo's info? Instead of "He was later appointed as the official Sixth Hokage Candidate (六代目火影候補, Rokudaime Hokage Kōho) after Pain's invasion, but died before he officially entered the office of Hokage." Should be: "He was later appointed as the official Sixth Hokage Candidate (六代目火影候補, Rokudaime Hokage Kōho) after Pain's invasion, but died before he be approved by the jōnin of the village to become officially Hokage.Dragon NJMB (talk) 00:39, May 30, 2013 (UTC)

That sort of implies he would have been approved by the jōnin, which isn't necessarily the case. I don't see what's wrong with the current statement. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 01:45, May 30, 2013 (UTC)
To me, both state he was going to take office because he was approved. The first implies he was already approved, but just didn't make it back in time to officially take office. The second at least gives a slight notion to the idea that they had not voted him in yet. --Taynio (talk) 02:16, May 30, 2013 (UTC)

Omnibender, this was extracted from the Hokage's article Overview: "...but if the old Hokage dies or is incapacitated before being able to do so, the Fire Daimyō will appoint a Hokage Candidate upon the recommendation of the Konoha council and the Fire Daimyō council. Afterwards, the candidate will need to be approved by the jōnin of the village to become officially Hokage. After being approved, they move into the Hokage Residence to live in and have their faces carved out in the monument behind it..." Dragon NJMB (talk) 21:00, June 10, 2013 (UTC)

"Enter office" there means exercise the position, not move into the Hokage's Residence. Saying he was a candidate already points out he had yet to officially become Hokage. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 00:29, June 11, 2013 (UTC)
