  • According to Naruto, generally the new Hokage is selected by the current Hokage upon their retirement, but if the former Hokage dies or is incapacitated before being able to do so, the Fire Daimyō will appoint a Hokage Candidate upon the recommendation of the Konoha council and the Fire Daimyō council. Afterwards, the candidate will need to be approved by the jōnin of the village to officially become Hokage.
