The Taifūkage (台風影; Literally meaning "Hurricane Shadow") is the leader of Taifūgakure and is the strongest shinobi in the whole village. Like most other ninja villages, the new kage is usually elected by the old kage once he retires. However, if the old one was to die or be incapacitated before choosing his successor, the Daimyō would appoint a shinobi as the kage upon recommendation by the village's jōnin council. Afterwards, the candidate will need the approval of the village jōnin to become the official Taifūkage.
