Whats up with the ANBU?

Dont get me wrong, I really like the ANBU, but I looked on this website and I think they said they were between chuunins and jounins, but what is so special about them, arent people like kakashi and Kabuto much stronger than anbu? If so then why do they choose them for quite important missions????

it seems sorta dumb to me, but i think they are trained especially in the stealth arts (even though they don't seem like they can do anything spectacular). kabuto whipped like 5 of them when he was gonna assassinate sasuke. im not sure, but i sure like there masks. i wanna wear one sometime.

I say you should just think of them as the offical military force.

and you should already know that there's not that many people stronger that kakashi and kabuto.

Anbu isn't a rank, like Chuunin and Jounin. It's a specialist position. They're chosen from other ranks to fulfill assassination missions, bodyguarding, and what-all. They're the dirtier hands of the ninjas. Anbu literally means "darkness." So, they're the dark side of the ninja world.

But they aren't any more powerful because they're Anbu. We saw Kabuto kill, like... four of 'em. They're strength will always vary.

This was already sicussed before...

The ANBU is a special group formed by Chuunins/Jounins in charge of espionage over the other countries and the village's protection. Simple like that.

To put it even more simpler ( ) , the anbu do basically all the greese work for konoha, like gather information, guard people, assasinate people, ect. Ofcourse they need bit more skills to help them accomplish thier task, but that doesnt mean thier aren't ninjas (like kakashi/orochimaru/kabuto/ or naruto ) that can easily take them out becuase they are way above the anbu's level.

Sure ya' have. Five of 'em were laying dead in Sasuke's hospital room before a Genin.

Kabuto is at Kakashi's level. He intentionally failed each of his exams. Kabuto can't really be classified as a normal genin. Besides, there were only three Anbu there.

The point is, it doesn't matter what rank you are in the ninja world, it only matters how skilled you are. If Anbu are chosen from Chuunin and Jounin ranks, and could be beaten by Genin, that just proves how meaningless rank is.

rank is not meaninless, remeber most of these ninjas make a living being ninjas, so rank is important in getting some important jobs too. Your problem is you think rank is based on strength alone when it is not. it could be intelligence or medical expertise, intelligence gathering, seal removal and so on.

I think rank is meaning-less in some cases, like naruto. Because he never becomes a

Meaningless in combat.

Example (again): Kabuto is a Genin. Kakashi is a Jounin (former Anbu). They're equal. Kabuto is a Genin. The three Anbu he killed were, presumably, Chuunin or Jounin level. He beat them effortlessly.

You see?

kabuto is a spy for oro.. that doesn't mean he is a geenin... .if a spy is dressed like a mechanic juss to get information.. it doesn't mean he is a mechanic... that is like saying kabuto is a geenin because he is "disquised " as a geenin to get information and so no1 really pays attention to him... with oro he is basically a jounin.. the sound village is oro's and kabuto is part of the sound village who is spying in konoha

Kabuto lives in the village, and has for years, and has participated in the Chuunin Exams for years, and has failed for years, albeit on purpose.

Regardless, he's still a Genin rank ninja and can still hold his own against one of the most powerful Jounin in the Leaf.

Rank DOES mean something, it just isn't an absolute law.

99% of the time, a Jounin will be stronger than a Genin.
The Chuunin fall in between, with a few of them weaker than Genin and some more powerful than Jounin.

Why would a Chuunin be weaker than a Genin? As stated um...about 10,567,401 times on this board, becoming a Chuunin is NOT a matter of raw power. It takes into account strength, battle strategies, information gathering, judgement under pressure, and more factors.

To paraphrase Hikaru no Go: No matter how strong you are, everyone starts off as a Genin. Don't underestimate anyone just because their rank is below yours.
