Why a 6th Hokage?

  • There is a lot of fan discussion as to who the next Hokage will be. Usually Naruto and Sasuke are mentioned. I do not want to discuss that, but the more relevant question. Why will a 6th Hokage be needed? I mean the 5th is still alive (assuming IT is cancelled, but if it isn't there will be no 6th Hokage), and the first four have been risen and given free will.

    • The first four will be released, they haven't actually been given life. Also, the series is ending soon, and Naruto's goal since the beginning was to be Hokage. So people are wondering if he'll make it. Personally, I think, even without the Sharingan, Kakashi is better for the position than Tsunade. He has almost unmatched Ninjutsu, excellent taijutsu (Better than part 1 Lee and he's beaten Gai before), and thorough knowledge of genjutsu. He's mastered over a thousand techniques from all the nations. But The most valuable asset is his mind. He's virtually unmatched in battle strategy and tactics, not to mention field experience. The only one right now who I think could react as intelligently and as fast on the battlefield as Kakashi is Shikamaru (who I'm pretty sure is smarter at this point). But Shikamaru isn't as battle capable. Kakashi might not have much raw power, but he knows exactly how to use it. For example: When they first went to Kaguya's lava dimension, Sasuke only had time to save himself and Naruto. Kakashi, in the midst of falling, thought through all his options, and saved himself and two others. No one can say that isn't fast, I mean he pulled a kunai out, tied a scroll around it, threw the kunai to the ceiling, caught Sakura, and threw a kunai at Obito to pin him to the wall. Sasuke barely had time to summon a hawk to fly to Naruto. My point is...

      Tsunade is a very powerful kunoichi. But I don't think she's the best leader for the village. Not by far.

    • I could see Tsunade stepping down and allowing Naruto to take her place. The 3rd hokage did the same for Minato, and after Minato died the 3rd was put back in office.

      Tsunade:You know what, I stink at Hokage Im quiting.

      That's pretty much what she could say.

    • asian Kakashi is cool in all but Hokage is reserved for the strongest in the village. Naruto is the strongest.

      ... Asian Kakashi? And not necessarily. Strength doesn't make a leader. The Hokage is someone who can lead. They usually have to be powerful, due to the nature of their position. But leadership is what's most important. And Kakashi has proven himself to be probably the best leader in Konoha. Truth be told, I feel like Naruto would be bored as Hokage, seeing as they basically only assign missions and deal with village paperwork unless there's a huge war.

      That's not cool. She doesn't stink as Hokage at all.

    • If Tsunade survives there shouldn't be need of talking about the next Hokage. I believe she'll willingly step down if Kakashi or Naruto (even though I believe Naruto isn't ready yet for that title) if they want to be Hokage. I didn't mention Sasuke is because of his track record even though I believe they'll drop the charges but even I seriously doubt that he'll become Hokage and he's my favorite character.

    • What's really confusing me is the Naruto-Sasuke-Konohamaru-Kakashi-Kiba thing. They all want to be Hokage, and it looks like Kakashi is going to be the sixth, then Naruto...and then what about the others?

        Loading editor
    • In that case it would be Konohamaru along with other candidates of his age that will be going after the Hokage title which would make him the 8th Hokage. Sasuke and definitely Kiba will be too old to become Hokage (at that time) that is if nothings happen to Naruto or Kakashi in their reign.

    • Before becoming the 7th hokage, Naruto should go on a training session with Orochimaru or the four edo tensei hokages (not to increase his power) to learn other aspects of Ninjutsu besides Rasengan variations like fuinutsu, bukijutsu, knowledge of clans, shinobi world and history, making strategies etc.. he sould also be required to attain obscure knowledge such as the existence and usage of shinigami mask, rinnegan's appearence by mixing uchiha with senju dna etc... afterall not all problems that occur can be dealth with raw power, ...heck, he doesn't even know how to remove a 5 seal barrier like the one akatsuki put up.. He still needs to learn a lot and become wiser prior to being elected the hokage

      right now he already has a lot of elemental releases and it would not be that hard for him to learn how to use them outside of Rasengan because apparently anyone can create an earth wall if they know the seals so all he would have to do is learn the seals for basic elemental techniques like fire release fire ball jutsu etc and then practice them i agree he needs to learn more then just those techniques but i believe that if he were to go and train with Orochimaru. he would end up killing orochimaru because he would attempt to manipulate him.

      1. jutsu knowledge means nothing. even ay with 2 jutsu became supreme alliance leader.

      2. so 17 years old gaara has great knowledge about clans and ninja world and history...

      Agree, but this main reason that Naruto and Gaara will have advisors.

    • the hokage thing is really annoying. so far there has only been one hokage in charge, even when minato became hokage, hiruzen who was the third stepped down and retired. So with that being said, how is naruto gonna become hokage when kakashi who has more experience, and sasuke who was approved by all previous hokage. Plus as i said, there has never been two hokage in charge, and tsunade being in good condition is still the 5th hokage. So i dont know whats going to happen, i feel the maker may have twisted things up alittle but we will see what happens in the manga. Surprises always awaits o_-

    • I agree on some aspects about Naruto gaining more knowledge overall. After this war he should talk to the first two hokage about the clans that made up the village which are probably still around minus Shimura Clan and a couple other probably. He should talk to his Dad about the Uzumaki clan. His Dad should know some things since he married an Uzumaki and he should learn the Uzumaki fuinjutsu. Biggest thing for Nauruto to learn is recognizing and dispelling genjutsu! He can't rely on Kurama all the time, he needs to learn the original way.

      Saying he should learn more jutsu other than resengan is dumb. Why change something if it's still effective and not broken? Naruto's fighting style is all about tricking his opponent and getting in close with a resengan. Since he's added many different resenshuriken forms that might be his go to now with stronger enemies.

      Great point AsianReaper. If there is no war, then the hokage is at the village giving out missions and other village duties. NOT Naruto's style. He wants action.

      Kakashi was minutes away from being the 7th Hokage when Tsunade was in her coma, so having her retire and giving it to Kakashi isn't a huge shocker. Tsunade didn't even want the position! She was forced/talked into it by Jiraya and Naruto.

      Overall, I doubt a Hokage is needed much after this war. The 5 villages will be together for the most part. I guess the village still needs a leader to run the mundane things for a village.

    • Tsunade, the current hokage is in her early 50s, Kakashi who is a prime candidate is in his early 30s, Naruto and Sasuke are 16 or 17, The third hokage, who stepped down in order for Minato to become the fourth hokage, was only in his early-mid seventies when he died. There is plenty of time for Tsunade to have 10+ years of being hokage, step down or fall in battle and allow Kakashi to be hokage, as he would only be in his forties, and he could be hokage for 10+ years and have Naruto or Sasuke become hokage after him. There is a lot of fans who believe that Naruto would be the hokage and Sasuke would be the "Danzo" of his reign, protecting the village from the shadows through use of the ANBU.

    • Naruto is acknowledged by the entire shinobi world. He is a far better choice for Hokage than Sasuke. The only thing he lacks is experience which he will gain in time.

      Hurizen was 68-69 when he died.
