As the village of one of the [[Five Great Shinobi Countries]], Konohagakure has a [[Kage]] as its leader known as the [[Hokage]], of which there have been seven in its history. Konoha resides deep within a forest at the base of a mountain known as the [[Hokage Rock]], which has the faces of all those who have taken the office of Hokage engraved on it.<section end=summary /><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 625, page 12</ref> While generally seen as the most powerful of the ninja villages,<ref>First Fanbook</ref> Konoha has enjoyed many years of relative peace and stability. The standard attire for Konoha shinobi consists of blue or black shirts which may or may not have swirl patterns on the shoulders, along with matching coloured pants under a green [[flak jacket]] which also has a red swirl on the back, and pockets on the chest area. They also tend to wrap bandages around their legs. Many Konohagakure ninja use [[Fire Release]] techniques. == History == === Founding === [[File:Senju & Uchiha truce.png|thumb|left|The Uchiha and Senju founded Konohagakure.]] During the [[Warring States Period]], ninja were organised into small mercenary clans that knew nothing but battle. The two strongest of these clans were the [[Senju]] and the [[Uchiha]], who had warred against each other for their entire histories. Eventually, intending to end the countless bloodshed, [[Hashirama Senju]] used his position as leader of his clan to create a truce with the Uchiha clan. The Senju, the Uchiha, and their affiliated clans formed the first shinobi village: Konohagakure — a name invented by Madara himself.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 625, page 8</ref> Other villages would soon start being formed following Konoha's example, ending the Warring States Period. [[File:Danzō and Hiruzen as children.png|thumb|Konoha as it appeared shortly after its founding.]] Hashirama used his [[Wood Release]] abilities to produce much of the village's infrastructure.<ref>Second Databook, page 279</ref> This ability and his ideals were two of the reasons he was chosen to become the village's leader: the Hokage. Madara, however, feared that the Senju would oppress his clan and attempted to gather support to overthrow Hashirama. No Uchiha would help, forcing him to take on Hashirama by himself. Madara was ultimately defeated at what would be called the [[Valley of the End]] and he was believed to have died. As a result of the battle, Konoha came into possession of the [[Nine-Tails]]. To contain its enormous power, the village began its trend of sealing the beast within the [[Uzumaki]], a clan that the Senju and thus the rest of Konoha had close ties with.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 500, pages 2-4</ref> At some point, Hashirama came to bind some of the other [[tailed beasts]] and gave them to the other newly formed ninja villages to promote peace and tranquility.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 648, pages 8-15</ref> However, this peace was short-lived. Hashirama died shortly after the village began to flourish, and the mantle of Hokage was passed onto his brother, [[Tobirama Senju]], who became the Second Hokage. === The First Three World Wars === Tobirama died during the [[First Shinobi World War]], killed by [[Kumogakure]]'s [[Kinkaku Force|ninja]], but he appointed [[Hiruzen Sarutobi]] as Third Hokage before his death. Years later, during the [[Second Shinobi World War]], Hiruzen led Konoha's forces against [[Iwa]] and [[Suna]], using [[Amegakure]] as their battleground. Ame's leader, [[Hanzō]], also fought Konoha a number of times, and during one of these battles gave Hiruzen's students - [[Jiraiya]], [[Tsunade]], and [[Orochimaru]] - the title of [[Sannin]]. During the [[Third Shinobi World War]], Konoha fought the ninja of [[Iwagakure]] across [[Kusagakure]]. Konoha was almost defeated, but [[Minato Namikaze]] and [[Team Minato|his team]] helped turn the war back in their [[Kannabi Bridge|favour]]. === Nine-Tailed Demon Fox's Attack === {{Main|Nine-Tailed Demon Fox's Attack}} [[File:Kyuubi attack on Konoha.png|thumb|left|The Nine-Tails attacking Konoha.]] After the end of the Third Shinobi World War, Hiruzen chose Minato to replace him as Fourth Hokage. Soon after Minato took office, however, a [[masked man]] kidnapped the Nine-Tails' [[Kushina|Uzumaki-host]] and removed it from her body, which he then used to attack Konoha. Minato was able to defeat the man, but the Nine-Tails proved more difficult. Left with few options, Minato gave his life to seal the Nine-Tails into the body of his newborn son, [[Naruto Uzumaki]]. Many ninja died defending the village, and most survivors blamed Naruto for the Nine-Tails' actions. Hiruzen, Hokage again, outlawed all mention of the Nine-Tails so that future generations would not hate Naruto as their parents did. {{-}} === Hyūga Affair === {{Main with-include|Hyūga Affair}} === Uchiha Clan Downfall === {{Main|Uchiha Clan Downfall}} [[File:Uchiha Clan Massacre.png|thumb|Uchiha Clan Downfall.]] Konoha's leadership believed an Uchiha was responsible for the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox's attack, and as such cut off the Uchiha from much of the village's affairs. Angered by this mistreatment, many of the Uchiha began plotting a coup d'état that would wrest control of Konoha. However, some Uchiha saw the dangers from such a venture. One such figure was [[Itachi Uchiha]], who became a spy for Konoha's leadership. After peace talks failed, [[Danzō Shimura]] ordered Itachi to wipe out his clan in exchange for being allowed to spare his younger brother, [[Sasuke]]. Itachi, with assistance from [[Tobi]], did as instructed, but staged events to seem as though he acted alone and for selfish purposes so that Sasuke would someday take vengeance against him for what he did to their family. === Konoha Crush === {{Main|Konoha Crush}} [[File:Hiruzen vs Orochimaru.png|thumb|left|Hiruzen battling Orochimaru.]] During Part I, Konoha is the site of the [[Chūnin Exams]]. During the exams' final stage the village is invaded by [[Otogakure]] and [[Sunagakure]] ninja, an attempt to end the peace and prosperity that Konoha alone has enjoyed since the Third Shinobi World War. The invaders are repelled, but Konoha suffers heavy casualties, including Hiruzen. Although [[Tsunade]] quickly replaces him as Fifth Hokage, recovery for the rest of Konoha's military forces is slow. The village is understaffed until Part II, leaving it unable to properly respond to events occurring in the interim such as Sasuke Uchiha's defection. {{-}} === Pain's Assault === {{Main|Pain's Assault}} [[File:Destroyed Konoha.png|thumb|Konoha destroyed by Pain.]] Three years after the failed Konoha Crush, the [[Six Paths of Pain]] of [[Akatsuki]] attack Konoha in an effort to capture Naruto. Konoha's forces have some success while fighting the Pains individually, but can do nothing to stop the village's destruction by Pain's [[Shinra Tensei]]. Naruto returns to Konoha shortly afterwards and defeats Pain before confronting [[Nagato]], the man behind Pain. After Naruto convinces him that his actions were wrong, Nagato gives his life to revive everyone that died during the invasion. Tsunade is left in a coma from exhausting herself in protecting Konoha from Pain, causing [[Danzō Shimura]] to temporarily take office as her replacement. Danzō oversees the start of the village's lengthy rebuilding process and deals with the immediate aftermath of Pain's attack. === Fourth Shinobi World War === {{Main|Fourth Shinobi World War}} [[File:Infinite Tsukuyomi Konoha.png|thumb|left|Konoha entrapped in the God: Nativity of a World of Trees.]] Because of Akatsuki's growing aggression, the ninja villages decide to form an [[Allied Shinobi Forces]] to oppose Akatsuki in the [[Fourth Shinobi World War]]. Danzō is killed shortly after the Alliance is agreed upon, but Tsunade wakes from her coma in time to start overseeing the war efforts. Despite still being under construction, Konoha is used as a haven for refugees fleeing countries where much of the fighting is expected to take place.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 517, page 2</ref> By the time the war is won, most of the village has been restored.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 616, page 1</ref> {{-}} === Post-War === [[File:Konohagakure Post War.png|thumb|Konohagakure years after the Fourth Shinobi World War.]] After the war, Konoha experienced a population boost under the leadership of [[Kakashi Hatake]] and [[Naruto Uzumaki]] as the Sixth and Seventh Hokage respectively. The village has overall grown in size and a series of skyscrapers have been built behind the Hokage Rock.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 700</ref> The village has experienced a technical revolution, with computers, cell phones, and electric trains being available. Some, such as [[Sarada Uchiha]], note Konoha is now a city rather than a village.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 700+2</ref> Several years later, much of Konohagakure, the [[Hokage Rock]], and the city behind the village has been destroyed, presumably by a [[Kawaki|mysterious boy]]. == Locations == * [[Academy]] * [[Amaguriama]] * [[Dango Shop]] * [[Forty-Fourth Training Ground]] * [[Hokage Rock]] * [[Hokage Residence]] * [[Ramen Ichiraku]] * [[Jōnin Standby Station]] * [[Kikyō Castle]] * [[Konoha Archive Library]] * [[Konoha Aviary]] * [[Konoha Cemetery]] * [[Konoha Hospital]] * [[Konoha Hot Springs]] * [[Konohagakure Intelligence Division]] * [[Konoha Library]] * [[Konoha Military Police Force]] * [[Konoha Orphanage]] * [[Memorial Stone]] * [[Mission Assignment Desk]] * [[Naka River]] * [[Naka Shrine]] * [[Shushuya]] * [[Third Training Ground]] * [[Uchiha Senbei]] * [[Yakiniku Q]] * [[Yamanaka Flowers]] * [[Akagahara]] ([[Find the Four-Leaf Red Clover!|anime only]]) * [[Konoha Ninja Tool Research Facility: Detached Office]] ([[Deploy!

Of these there are four clans which are regarded as noble clans. These are the: Aburame, Akimichi, Hyūga and Uchiha clans — the latter of which was regarded as the most powerful clan in the village.<ref>First Databook, page 215</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 7, page 2</ref> All known clans in the village are: {{#ask:[[Concept:Clans]][[Loyalty::Konohagakure]]|format=ul}} == Emergency Protocols == Konoha has a protocol in case the village is ever under attack.<ref>''Naruto'' episode 79</ref> # Eliminate the enemy units. # If phase 1 is not viable, evacuate every civilian to the nearest shelter hidden throughout the village. # Use all of the forces in the village to eliminate the enemy with full force using home field advantage. == Trivia == * The hiragana あん (an) is painted on the four entrance gates of the village (one hiragana on each door).<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 251, page 10</ref> This means "hermitage" or "retreat". In kanji, the character is "庵". There are also [[Wikipedia:Torii|torii]] built all around the perimeter wall of the village.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 436, page 8</ref> * [[Masashi Kishimoto]] stated that Konohagakure was modelled after his own hometown. * In the [[Naruto Uzumaki (volume)|first Naruto volume]], page 87, there's a sketch of downtown Konoha.

In the anime (as well as ''[[Ultimate Ninja Storm 3]]''), most of the village was built within the crater caused by Pain. == See Also == * {{Drilldown|List of Konohagakure characters|Characters|q=Loyalty=Konohagakure}} == References == <references /> [[sr:Село Лишћа]] [[de:Konohagakure]] [[es:Konohagakure]] [[he:כפר העלה]] [[id:Konohagakure]] [[ru:Деревня Скрытого Листа]] [[nl:Konohagakure]] [[pl:Konohagakure]] [[pt-br:Konohagakure]]
