The Chuunin Exams will be conducted much like in the series, beginning with a written exam, followed by a survival/mission completion exam, and a combat exam. All Chuunin Exams will be held in a specially created village for the sole purpose of Rank-Up exams. It is called "The Town of Trials."

In the First Stage of the Exam, there will be a written exam in which you must cheat and copy the answers from Chuunin who have infiltrated the examinees without being caught.

In this town, there is a high-level training area like Konohagakure's Forest of Death.

The Ruins of Darkness: An underground ruin filled with fearsome creatures and devoid of light. To pass the Second Stage of the Chuunin Exam, you must survive there for 2 weeks, while defending either your Scroll of Heaven or Scroll of Earth, and seeking out the other scroll of the pair. After getting the other scroll from an opponent, you must keep both scrolls in your possession until the remaining time passes. After the 2 weeks are up, you must return to the entrance of the ruins. Keep in mind that other groups that did not manage to get their other scroll, or groups that had lost their original or both scrolls may be waiting in ambush to take the scrolls of another group.

The third stage is a combat exam. Anything goes. The judge has the right to stop a match at any point. However, if the losing side wishes to continue despite the possibility of death, that is their decision. If death occurs during these matches, there will be no penalty to the winner. In the end, Jounin Rank Shinobi and higher will vote for who they think should be promoted to Chuunin. Even if you lose your match, you can still be promoted. Likewise, winning your match does not guarantee that you will be promoted.
