In general, the power of a shinobi is represented on a letter rank scale, ranging from E to S called Ninja Rank. A character's Ninja rank always begins at either E or D, and can be advanced by completing the requirements listed below. Characters are limited to utilizing items and techniques only one rank higher than their Ninja Rank at all times, making Ninja Rank the primary way by which a shinobi acquires new powers. In addition to Ninja Rank, characters have a Secondary Rank which represents a given shinobi's military rank within their village, or the general experience they have as a ninja, these are represented by Genin, being the default Secondary Rank, Chunin, Jonin, and Sannin, with each providing their own benefits once achieved.

The requirements for raising Ninja Rank are as follows, unless specified otherwise, the number of techniques above a shinobi's Ninja Rank available to them is 10.
