* ''FanFic/WarOfTheBiju'':
** Rather than Kakashi or Danzo, Naruto is named Rokudaime Hokage. Unlike in canon, it's acknowledged to be a permanent post (Naruto is even named Supreme Leader of the Allied Shinobi Forces after the Kage Summit) -- even after Tsunade wakes up, the only reason she retakes command of the village is because Naruto had to go in hiding for the first juncture of the war. They're basically sharing the title, and it's all but confirmed that Tsunade will formally retire and revert all of her duties to Naruto when the war is over. Throughout the story, those not personally acquainted with Naruto address him as the Hokage -- including Edo Tensei Itachi. Even some of those who are address him as such in serious and formal situations.
** Right before the siege on Konoha, it's revealed that Naruto and Tsunade promoted Konohamaru to chunin, most likely in recognition of his amazing performance during the Invasion of Pein, where he managed to take out one of the Six Paths to save Ebisu.
** Several members of the Konoha 12 are promoted to jonin after their remarkable performance during the Gedo Mazo's attack. The Raikage himself hands them their new flak jackets.

** He proceeds to promote Marla to store manager (mainly so he doesn't look as misogynistic as Jerry). Marla has mixed feelings about that, as she had been planning to leave herself to start her own business, but she was also eight months pregnant and needed the money. Later story arcs involve her despondency and everyone else's disappointment at her becoming 'the man'.

** When Marla finds out that she can have a stockroom supervisor, she promotes Cooper, who at first doesn't take the role seriously. He eventually starts rising up to the task.

* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', almost all of the ''Konoha 12'' ninja are promoted in between the TimeSkip. Naruto himself averts this, being now possibly '''the''' most powerful ninja in the village but having one of the lowest ranks. Gaara, however, takes this further by going from [[NewMeat Genin]] to the [[FourStarBadass Kazekage]], and his siblings and Neji become Jonin.

** [[spoiler:Akainu is another example. In his first appearance, in Robin's flashback to 20 years ago, he's a Vice Admiral. When he first appears in the present, at the start of the WarArc, he's an Admiral. After the TimeSkip, he's mentioned to be the new Fleet Admiral, though he hasn't appeared yet in person post-timeskip.]]

[[spoiler:It's implied that she swore most--if not all--of her Oaths as a child, before she was forced to kill her mother, but the trauma caused her to backslide and forget she even had her powers]].
