is one of the five classifications. It is preceded by D-Rank and followed by B-rank. It is typically used when classifying techniques intended for ninja of the chūnin level. C-rank techniques are often one of the first techniques a ninja will learn that require some amount of training.
There are also C-rank missions. These missions are usually assigned to chūnin, or in some cases, genin. Assignments include bodyguard duty and hunting wild animals, all of which will likely pose some risk to the ninja.
