    Orochimaru was a Sannin at that time already.
    Before he left, he was fighting along with Jiraya and Tsunade. Example against Hanzo
    and they were known as the 3 legendary Sannins.

    Itachi...well Itachi was already in the ANBU so I guess that makes him a Jonin when he left.

    Sannin isn't really a rank. It's a title. Orochimaru was technically a Jounin when he left Konoha

    He was a jounin before he became known as a sannin
    Otherwise he wouldn't have been given such missions with Tsunade and Jiraiya!

    Re: What ninja rank was Oro..?

    orochimaru was jounin originally b4 joining the akatsuki;
    while itachi was already a captain of AMBU ( actually at the age of 13)......


    yah..being a sannin it does not mean you do have a necessary position to ninja rank,it was a merely title given after they fought and won the war against Hanzo

    Re: What ninja rank was Oro..?

    jounins like the sannins and the 7 swordsmen of the hidden mist got their title for being special. so they are thought to be higher than regular jounins on skill and such. they are therefor considered being higher rank than jounins even if there is no official village rank for them. other examples are the 12 guardian dudes which asuma was a part of and akatsuki.

    Orochimaru = Jounin, Sannin

    Itachi = Jounin, captain of ANBU black ops

    Sasuke = Chuunin (He was promoted by Genma before he chased after Gaara, which was his first mission as a Chuunin).

    Orochimaru was Kage Level. Hiruzen would have appointed him to be the next hokage if he hadn't turned out to be a mad scientist

    Re: What ninja rank was Oro..?

    Seems like Scary Yamato said it before i could.
    Orochimaru:
    -technically Jounin
    -he was a sannin, and that is actually above a regular Jounin
    -he was also Kage level, The Third once said that he intended to make Oro hokage.
    Itachi
    -Jounin
    -Leader of the Anbu

    The late Orochimaru would be considered an S-rank ninja which is the equivalent of an extremely high ranking jonin.

    Well, Sasuke wasn't officially Chuunin. Genma just said that he's chuunin level. Shikamaru was the only one to receive the title of the chuunin in that exam.

    S-Rank is really only used to refer to techniques, missions, and missing-nin like your link says. Orochimaru was a jonin when he left just a very high level jonin.
