Naruto did not become a Chunin when he tried to take the exam twice. During his first Chunin exam, he was able to pass the first and the second stage. He won the preliminary match against Kiba Inuzuka and even beat Neji in the final match. But winning every battle in the exam did not earn Naruto the Chunin rank.
Konohamaru gets up and relentlessly attacks Naruto getting beaten and bruised continuously in an attempt to land a hit Naruto. However, learning that the use of senjutsu was deemed forbidden specially for this Chūnin Exam to make it more fair for other genin, Naruto is disqualified while Konohamaru wins by default.
Naruto didn’t become chūnin in first chūnin exam, he missed the second chūnin exam due to his training with Jiraiya. There is third chūnin exam mentioned in an OVA: Chūnin Exam on Fire!
Naruto Uzumaki is the Hokage of Konoha Village in the Boruto sequel series, but despite his lofty position, the hero is still technically a Genin. He might have achieved his goal of becoming the Hokage, but Naruto is still technically ranked as a Genin in the Boruto sequel series.
Naruto actually never became a jonin, he did not even become a chunin. He was directly promoted to the status of Hokage from genin although he had to study all the necessary things to become a chunin and jonin so that he would have both the knowledge and power worthy of the title of Hokage. Naruto does become a jonin.
“Naruto didn’t become a jounin. He became Hokage as a genin,” the artist explained. Kishimoto even went on to say Sasuke never upped his ninja rank after he gave up his rogue status. “Sasuke is not a jounin or chuunin either, but rather, since he left the village, he is a nukenin.
Even though he’s stronger than any of the Kage, excluding Naruto, Sasuke is still a Genin. His skill alone puts him way above the rank of a Jonin.
