Naruto: Strongest Clans In The Manga

A clan (一族, Ichizoku, literally meaning: household, clan), in the broadest sense of the term, refers to a family or group of shinobi who form a basic unit of a shinobi village.

The majority of these clans were mercenary military forces even before the first shinobi world war. The Senju clan and the Uchiha clan were the first known clans to agree to settle and form a shinobi village, which was facilitated by the creation of agreements with the daimyō of the lands they inhabited. Many clans would follow the example of the Senju and Uchiha, later establishing the five great shinobi countries as they are known today.

Clan membership is generally determined by blood relations and genetics, which are essential in the use of genkai kekkei and secret techniques. These attributes and abilities have made many clans feared and renowned in many villages. Although clans can be made up of many individuals and extended families, many clans mentioned and seen in the series were limited in some way to a nuclear family.
