Rank on Mythos is almost a bit of a misnomer, as rank denotes a players respective relative power level and not what would be their In-Character (IC) title (as will be explained later here). With such, we follow a very traditional ranking system to measure a person's power level, ranging from E-rank all the way to S-rank (E, D, C, B, A, S) as ninja are capable of great feats both physically and through their chakra. The lowest end, an E-rank ninja is the lowest of the low and mostly comparable to an average person's ability for all intent and purpose. At the highest end, the S-rank ninja is beyond even the most elite of ninja as they hold incredible abilities and physical prowess. Often times a ninja's rank would be equated towards their title, such as making genin equivalent to D-rank, however this isn't the case as a genin could have a jounin's power but not be promoted for a variety of reasons. For this reason, a ninja's rank is only a relative marker of their power while their title is an IC-badge to mark their power.

As a ninja trains and increases their power to the next level, it is marked by hitting a new rank. Each rank equates to their increasing power and physical prowess but there are many markers and prerequisites to have a ninja's power increase to the next level. The base rank equates to an E-rank ninja, essentially Academy Student or normal human in power. Everyone on site starts their characters at this level with the following things:

  • All E-0 stats
  • 2 E-rank, 2 D-rank jutsu
  • 50 total chakra
  • 2 free specialization points

At every level, a ninja is allocated up to 15 possible stat points to train that they can put forward towards various stats as they see fit however they want (able to put all 15 in a single stat if you wish). Once a ninja has trained all 15 stat points they are eligible to hit the next rank (D-rank), afforded the following as a result of their progress:

  • 5 free stat points to use as they see fit
  • 2 D rank, and 1 C rank jutsu

It is important to note that for every new rank a person hits, they can only increase their chakra by 10 from stat points (or a +100 to their chakra pool) and the 5 free stat points are meant to be used towards that effect but not required to be spent as such. However, if you decide to spend your stat points elsewhere, that chakra is lost and cannot be retroactively gained later down the line, putting you at a slight chakra disadvantage but giving you a slight physical stat advantage. As such, at C-rank comes when another 15 stat points have been trained (not including the 5 free ones) and an additional 2 D rank jutsu and 1 C rank jutsu are trained (also not from the free jutsu offered). Once done so, they hit C-rank and they are granted the following:

  • 5 free stat points (as before)
  • 2 C rank, 1 B rank jutsu

Following a similar manner, once a ninja trains the next 15 stat points and an additional 2 C rank and 1 B rank jutsu, they hit B-rank and gain the following benefits:

  • 5 free stat points (as before)
  • 2 B rank, 1 A rank jutsu

Again, once a ninja trains the next set of 15 stat points and an additional 2 B rank and 1 A rank jutsu, they hit A-rank and gain the following benefits:

  • 5 free stat points (as before)
  • 2 A rank jutsu

Finally, once a ninja trains the next set of 15 stat points and an additional 2 A rank jutsu, they are now considered S-rank ninja with the following benefits:

  • 5 free stat points (as before)
  • 1 S rank jutsu
  • An IC title (worked out with staff)

To reiterate and illuminate on the system some, the free stat points are meant to be used towards chakra, but if they aren't, will give the ninja a slight physical advantage but a chakra disadvantage towards their opponents when at equal level. Any jutsu gained at any level can be interchanged for differing jutsu levels in a 2:1 ratio so that two jutsu of one rank can combine to make a jutsu of one rank higher or vice versa.

It's also important to note that this system doesn't account for clan perks that increase stats or jutsu that do so, as well as traits or various event prizes as well, making it possible for a ninja to be stronger than is actually listed here. The system is built in a way so that a ninja will have to choose their base stats wisely and build their character towards having various advantages and disadvantages as they won't have enough stat points to max out their stats at any level. However, the ranks are a good way of measuring a ninja's respective power in the world though obviously ninja will be more powerful and less powerful than average and each other in different circumstances in what equates to a character building rock-paper-scissors match.

Title on Mythos is simply as it is, a mark of IC pride and recognition for your work. The most simple form of title is that given to village ninja by their respective Kage. In a simple senses, there are several of these 'ranks' to attain as they work their way up the village hierarchy as listed below:

  • Genin (下忍, Literally meaning: low ninja) are the lowest level of ninja and also the ones that display the most difference in power. When they become genin, ninja start to do their bit for their village's economy – being sent on missions that the village gets paid for. They are typically sent either on D-rank missions, which are almost entirely risk-free jobs of manual labor, or, rarely, on C-rank missions, which are a cut above that and begin to verge on real "ninja" work that have a very low possibility of risk to the ninja involved.
  • Chūnin (中忍, Literally meaning: Middle Ninja) are ninja who have reached a level of maturity and ability that primarily consists of leadership skills and tactical prowess. Chūnin are typically sent on C-rank or B-rank missions. Some chūnin move on to become Academy teachers or to take other specialized jobs within the village.
  • Tokubetsu Jōnin (特別上忍, Tokubetsu Jōnin, English TV: Special Jōnin) are ninja who, rather than having all-around jōnin skills, only excel in a specific area, much like warrant officers in real-world militaries.
  • Jōnin (上忍, Jōnin, Literally meaning: High Ninja) are generally highly experienced and highly skilled shinobi who serve as military captains. Jōnin are generally able to use at least two types of elemental chakra, though it is not necessarily a requirement but a show of their high skill level. It is not unusual for jōnin to go on missions alone. They are often sent on A-rank missions, and if experienced enough, S-rank missions as well (which are considered to be the greatest difficulty).
  • Kage (影, Literally meaning: Shadow) is a title reserved for the leader of one of the Five Great Shinobi Countries' hidden villages. They are collectively known as the Five Kage (五影, Gokage, Literally meaning: Five Shadows). A Kage oversees the activities of their village, from sending ninja on missions to making the hard decisions regarding the safety of their people. A village's Kage is generally acknowledged as its most powerful ninja.

The Kage title is included in this list as part of the hierarchy but is the de-facto leadership and head of their village (next to their jounin council and council of elders if applicable). However, the Kages have much more power and are almost in complete control of assigning their ninja to the various ranks listed above, giving them their title and stance within the village as a recognition of their hard work and skill. Kage have many more responsibilities than this discussed within the Kage Rules. Wanderes and Missing Ninja usually are not referenced by a title like such and instead by their actual rank, or in the case of Missing Ninja their place and classification in the Bingo Book (making it possible for a person to be an S-class criminal from the severity of their crimes but only be considered B-rank in power).

In addition to this base title of theirs, as a bit of fun on Mythos, we as staff want to recognize outstanding and legendary ninja with titles of their own. As such, when a ninja does something grandeur in the eyes of staff in their own plot or within an event being held, they have a chance of being awarded a title for their actions (reflective of the glorious actions themselves). Similar to how Minato was often referred to as 'The Yellow Flash' for his blinding speed and bright yellow hair, the titles awarded to ninja will be monikers they can be known as and referred by throughout the World of Mythos. Additionally, these special titles will be displayed on their profile underneath their stats and chakra to display for everyone to see.

As a restriction, only two titles can be displayed at a time though a person could have a potentially infinite number of them for their actions. When a ninja hits their S-rank Milestone, they are given a chance to work out a title with staff close to their power as a reward but otherwise these titles are only given and accepted (to be put in the user profile) when staff deems a person has earned it. This in no way restricts your ability to title yourself and use that title in-character and with those people who know it, but this is a bit of extra recognition that staff would like to offer everyone.
