B-rank is one of the six shinobi classifications for level, techniques, and missions. It is preceded by C-rank and followed by A-rank. It typically refers to techniques used for Jonin or Chunin. B-rank techniques are powerful and can be learned with moderate amounts of training, such as the Shadow Clone Technique.
B-rank missions refer to an assignment given to Jonin and Chunin, and may involve spying, retrieving, reconnaissance, and assassinations. B-rank missions pay between 80,000 and 200,000 ryo.
