Do any of these ninja listed as S-Class actually have that rank or classification referenced somewhere? To the best of my knowledge Naruto & his mother have not been officially listed as S-Class yet, if at all. Not only that, but I'm sure there is a better way to have these Ninja's listed here than to just brute force it and manually place them here. If nobody can supply a good reference to them, I'm going to remove the listing.—This unsigned comment was made by Memsochet (talkcontribs) on 17:57, 30 December 2008 (UTC).

Adding to the previous point, is there any source explaining what S-class is? and is there a source that proves non-criminals can be considered S-class? --ShounenSuki 19:05, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

All that was just a pile of cruft that Shock Dragon added, it's been reverted. ~NOTASTAFF Daniel Friesen (DanTMan, Nadir Seen Fire) (talk) Dec 30, 2008 @ 19:13 (UTC)


Does anyone know all the S-Class criminals? Cooltamerboy 18:22, 28 January 2009 (UTC).

Here are the ones we have classified (in alphabetical order). 1. Deidara 2. Hidan 3. Kisame Hoshigaki 4. Kakuzu 5. Konan 6. Nagato 7. Orochimaru 8. Sasori 9. Itachi Uchiha 10. Madara Uchiha 11. Zetsu And I beleive Sasuke Uchiha is on his way to becoming an S-Class. I hope that answers your question. --TheBlueBlur (talk) 18:15, December 8, 2009 (UTC)

If I understood correctly, Sannins are not to be ranked as S-rank ninjas? I think that's bullshit, with all due respect. - (talk)

As far as we know, S-rank might only apply to criminals. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 22:26, May 17, 2010 (UTC)
Are Nagato and Konan really S-rank?--LeafShinobi (talk) 22:41, December 29, 2010 (UTC)
By being part of Akatsuki, yes. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 22:56, December 29, 2010 (UTC)

S-class missing nin

Since we've earlier come to the conclusion that S-class is only used in relation to criminals, I think we should list "S-class missing-nin" as a single notion in a single link. Or make a sub-article for S-class missing-nins in the missing-nin article. As for non-criminal highly powerful ninja I suggest using "Kage level" instead of "S-class".

S-Class is what the manga/anime used to classify them so thats what we use.--TheBlueBlur (talk) 18:06, December 8, 2009 (UTC)

Where does the manga ever refer to a non-criminal ninja as S-Class?--Pctopgs (talk) 13:00, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

Is sasuke s-class

Well he is listed as an international criminal but does that make him s-class (honestly as international global scale criminal I think that's above being s-class) —This unsigned comment was made by (talkcontribs) .

Sasuke was never mentioned to be S-class, directly or indirectly, so that means no S-class listing for him. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 23:58, March 9, 2011 (UTC)

s class technique

all powerful shinobi have a technique s-class, but Jiraya, Hashirama, Hanzo dont have the technique rank S!!!!!!!!! why??????????-—This unsigned comment was made by Chghjik (talkcontribs) .

It's that damned price of cheese! It's too high!--Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 17:54, June 20, 2011 (UTC)
I don't understand either of those comments. Fmakck (Images | contribs) 18:25, June 20, 2011 (UTC)
I suppose I should give a proper answer. Saying "all shinobi have an S-ranked technique" is just your assumption also saying that neither Jiraiya, Hanzō nor Hashirama have S-rank techniques is also speculation as they simply could but just didn't use them or simply didn't which didn't/doesn't make them any less powerful.--Cerez365 Hyūga Symbol 18:46, June 20, 2011 (UTC)

the technique of Hiruzen Sarutobi and Minato Namikaze (Dead Demon Consuming Seal()) the technique S-class, but the technique Danzo (Reverse Four Symbols Sealing Technique(This technique is a fuinjutsu that the user places across their chest, and sets it to activate upon their death. The technique releases four symbols from the user's body that then form a large, black sphere around them. Anything caught inside the sphere's area is then drawn in and sealed within the user's corpse.)) no thechnique S-class!!! why???—This unsigned comment was made by Chghjik (talkcontribs) .

We don't know, maybe it is, or of course ALL Kage's at least know a S-rank techinque because of their rank, they will know the tecniques like that. -Ilnarutoanime 19:25, June 22, 2011 (UTC)

It seems that at least in the episode 30 Anko described Orochimaru as "S-class", not "S-rank".--LeafShinobi (talk) 23:00, March 14, 2013 (UTC)
