|Rank:||D-Rank and C-Rank|
Genin ( Meaning Low Ninja, Viz Meaning "Junior 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 very low possibility of risk to the ninja involved. When Konohagakure was short-handed in upper-level ninja because of the attack of Otogakure and Sunagakure, the village had to occasionally send genin on higher-ranked missions.
