As of Oct. 12, 2014, the character Naruto Uzumaki in the manga "Naruto" has not become the Hokage of the Hidden Village Konoha. Despite being main protagonist and the title character, Naruto has so far remained a Genin, or the lowest rank of ninja in the Shinobi World.
Ridiculed by the villagers, Naruto hopes to one day be the Hokage — the leader and most powerful ninja in the village. Despite his low rank, he has strong connections to the upper echelons of authority in both Konoha and other Hidden Villages. Naruto is also the son of the late Fourth Hokage, Minato Namikaze. Additionally, both the Third and Fifth Hokage consider Naruto to be a surrogate family member and allow him significant leeway in his behavior towards them.
