Academy NinjasAburame Clan

Academy Student, Ninja

Advanced bloodline
Clans with bloodlines which give them special advanced abilities. People with this blood were used as weapons in countless battles. As a result, these blood clans were blamed for bringing misfortune and war to the countries. After the wars, these clans had to hide the truth about their own blood. For those whose secret was discovered, only death awaited.

Akatsu Organisation
An organisation that consists of 9 S-ranked criminals including Orochimaruand Itachi. All, or most, of the members are missing-nins.

Akimichi clan

Alliance Agreement, Leaf and Cloud
Signed by Influential People, it was designed to end many years of way between the two Villages.

Anbu
Team of elite Ninjas assigned for special jobs by the Leaf Village.

Animals
Dogs/snakes/toads/Etc. can be used as a Ninja tool, either threw summoning or accompaniment to attack or gather info. For instance, a Ninja Dog(Ninken) can prove extremely useful. With special Ninja training the dogs already fine sense of smell and hearing become hightened. Allowing them to be your nose and ears in a situation that leaves you blind. A Ninken can also fight alone side their master, using different Jutsu, as Akamaru does with Kiba.

Arm Guard
Commonly worn as part of the Anbu uniform.

Bandages
Primarily used to cover wounds as dressings, they are also often used as an item of clothing.

Branch House (Bunke), Hyuga Clan
Cousins, or even siblings to those in the Main House, the members of the Branch House are considered of a lower class. Branded as incapable of ever leading the Clan. It is their duty to protect the Main House with their lives, to ensure the future of the Bloodline. Despite this, as much as because of it, the Branch House of a Clan often spite the Main House.

Bugs
Insects can be used as a Ninja tool, either threw summoning or accompaniment to attack or to gather information. For instance, "Destruction Bugs", bugs that feed on chakra, can be controlled. These bugs live within a body. Members of the bug using Aburame Clan bodies are, at birth, offered to these insects to use as a nest and to feed on their Chakra. It is because of this a contract is formed that allows the clan to freely control the insects and use them as their primary fighting technique.

Chuunin exam

A test designed especially for Genin's looking to graduate into the Chuunin level. Its is broken down into 3 (actually 4) parts.

Part 1: A paper test with two hidden objectives. The entrants are told not to cheat but there is no way to answer any of the questions, unless you're extremely intelligent, so the only option left is to cheat. But, if you're caught cheating, you will be expelled from the test, along with your two team-mates. At the end of the test, the participants must make a choice whether to carry on and risk staying a Genin forever or leave it and try again next year. Their is no final question - Everyone who choose to stay in, passes.
Part 2: This test takes place in the "Forest of Death", a huge...ummm... forest, full of giant animals, poisonous insects and dangerous traps. Each team is given a scroll at the start of the test, there are 2 different types of scroll given out, Heaven and Earth. To complete the test successfully, you must have one of each and the only way to get your hands on another scroll is to steal, or take it by force from another team. Once in possession of the two scrolls, the team must make it to the large tower in the middle of the forest.
Part 3: Since so many teams passed the first and second test than usual, a qualifier for the REAL third test had to be held. In this test, characters square off against each other, head-to-head. After the number of entrants has been thinned down, the last test takes place.
Part 4: The final portion of the exam takes place one month after the previous portion allowing the Genins to heal from any wounds suffered earlier, and to train and strategize. This is in order for the participants to be in top shape for the event. The final is a tournament which takes place in front of a large crowd, including a jury consisting of influential people. Upon watching the one-on-one battles between Genin, they will be the ones to decide which have what it takes to be Chuunin. Those that win there battles, will have the chance to fight again, allowing the jurors more of a chance to witness their skills. It is possible that every Genin competing will be made a Chuunin, though it is also possible that not will, even the Genin to win in the last fight. Although seeming straight forward enough, the Chuunin Selection Exam, and particulary this final is not completely what it seems. Though the extremes of the exam are a good measure of what Genin should be Chuunin , the test is also a replacement for war among the Countries becuase it showcases each Villages strength.

"Collectors"
As described by Kabuto, "collectors" are Ninjas which, during the Chuunin Exam's Third Test, obtain extra scrolls than they need. Each team need's one Heaven and one Earth scroll, but some may collect extras for various reasons. To ensure their safety, they could collect extra scrolls to give to stronger enemies as a gift; to gain the favour or information from other teams, from their own village for example, as a gift; or just to take out enemies who could pose a threat to themselves later on.

Coup d'etat
Sudden overthrow of a goverment by force or illegal means. Zabuza attempts to do this to the Hidden Mist Village, but fails.

Curse Seal/Stigma (Juin)
Performed by the wicked Orichimaru on Sasuke during the second portion of the Chuunin exam. He also did the same seal on Anko in years past. Receiving the small mark which appears on the neck through a bite from Orochimaru, afterwards the receiver falls unconscious. Then, if they are strong enough to survive the 9/10 chance of immediate death, they regain concsiousness. Just by releasing Chakra the curse becomes active and forcibly pulls out Chakra, stealing the persons mind. At this point the the small mark on the neck grows to wrap around their whole body. It's a forbidden Jutsu which eats at the user's body.
