    We were never told that Gaara ever became a chunnin, or a jounin before becoming Kazekage (I think); so (if the previous statement is correct), Naruto can become Hokage without having those ranks.

    ...naruto will probably just be recommmended for the jounin exams
    Oops, I forgot that Tobi replaced Sasori.

    I brought this up simply because at the beginning of the new arc, they were planning for the Chuunin exam which seemed to me that Kishimoto, at the time, may have been interested in doing another one but was still unsure (i.e. he mentions the exam as a way to cover his bases so that if he wanted to, he could just throw it in later).

    As for new characters, I know there has not been many deaths but you can just have them to fill-ins. Introduce them now, so that when someone else does die, they can easily be replaced without him having to go through a tedious background story about each character. He can just dump a lot of new characters into one exam and then use them accordingly.

    And even though it is not necessary for Naruto to become a Chuunin since he has already proven himself, it is a good plot device to give him this aura of achievement.

    Well how did Sakura get to chuunin rank? You need a team to be able to take it according to the time of the first chuunin exam.

    Me I wouldn't mind seeing just like a short 5-10 chapter arc or something of Naruto, that focuses solely on Naruto, or in the event that the Konohamaru Corps take the exam to focus on them and Naurto, taking the exam, or he could do what Sakura did to achieve the rank.

    lets face it, naruto is the type of guy who, if someone has something, he has to have it. he wont just stay there while everybody else is a chunnin or a jonnin

    naruto in the chuunin exam? That'd just be letting him beat up kids O.o. Hes already at the skill level of a jounin and so the tests in chuunin exam would just be a waste of his time.

    Maybe for the old Naruto, but this one is supposed to be more mature. Therefore, he might not dwell on it as heavily as he might've in the past. Kish has to let the character evolve too. As much as I'd like to see another chuunin exam, it wouldn't be the same because Naruto is head and shoulders above all the other competitors, so yeah it really wouldnt be too fun to watch him easily beat up little kids.

    Besides, it saves the joke for later (the only Hokage to never be a chuunin) and lets other people bother him about that.

    hmmm.... If he is entering the chuunin exam, he first has to break his left hand as well...

    Take the written test with his pencil in his mouth... As for the scrolls, fight only using legs... That might make it interesting... And he would have to help his team mates...

    another whole exam arc would be a waste of time and it'd drag the series waaayyy to much. at most, kishimoto will just show Naruto join an exam, and 3-6 chapters later, he's a chuunin. 1 exam arc is enough, and there are other ways to introduce new characters. also, fill ins? just accept it. characters die, and there is no need to fill up that empty slot everytime it happens.
    Do I have to?

    I don't know if this is true but I remember reading somewhere that you have to be able to manipulate two different type of elements to become a jounin....but if anything with the shuriken rasengan he should get promoted to something...maybe hokage towel boy =/. I sorta want to see a chuunin exam with naruto...having to take it solo, cuz you know he'd fail the writing part anyways lol....

    It's not a requirement to be able to become a jounin to be able to use the two different elements. It's just a usually they are able to do it.
