After the Fourth Great Shinobi World War ended, the world was experiencing a time of peace. The villages for once were able to live in relative harmony with one another as they rebuilt, and for once, all seemed to be well. The kage were able to live peaceful lives and soon began retiring, passing on the baton to the next generations. That is until an unknown virus infects the northern coast. The first to fall is the once powerful Raikage, Ay. While many thought this virus was a simple mutation of what may have well been the flu, no one would ever think of the destruction it would cause. Especially when it infected a certain Uzumaki Naruto.
With his death came the malice; with the malice came the destruction; with the destruction came the shinobi' revolt; and with the revolt came the sacrifices. The Bijuu became filled with malice that they sought to destroy the world. Shinobi sought a way to fight them and once again capture each of the Bijuu. Time passed, and a plan was devised. The Jinchuuriki would be sacrificed for the greater good of the world, and with the deaths of nine individuals, an uneasy peace began.
As time continued, the villages began to truly restructure. In a peace that would last 80 years after the downfall of the Bijuu, the world would see the creation of a great many things. Technology was beginning to take root and before long the blossoms that grew from the tree of the advanced mind would bear fruit. A many great things came to be. A railroad between the vast many nations. Mechanical limbs to replace lost ones. Radios that could reach between villages. Everything seemed to be becoming less reliant on the shinobi. Only the need for them never truly vanished. As with the growth of time, also continued the growth of malice.
So I've been tinkering around with Radar charts. Thought i might be cool if we can include said charts to show off character stats - Maybe even work it into the characters themselves. Anyway here's what I've got so far.
The idea is each level represents the "average" for said stat at a corrsponding shinobi rank. The True Stats are Strength, Stamina, Control, Intellect, and Speed, whereas the remaining three stats [Mind, Body, and Soul] correspond to a character's path of the shinobi. The innermost ring [purple] represents academy students, whereas the outermost ring represents kage. Stuff that's colored in represents what the character has achieved, whereas the monochrome is above their abilities. We can partially fill in each level to better suit them to each character - e.g. a Chūnin with high control for his rank, but not quite Jōnin level, could have like 3/4 of the green ring filled in.
These aren't mandatory, but if you'd like one post here and I can whip one up for you. There are a total of eight stats, each of which can have a numerical value of 1 through 5 - by default all stats have a starting value of 1 (though if you have an adacemy student or somone who reeeeeeeeeally sucks at something, you could have a value less than one). You can give a stat a fractional value such as 1.5 - in this case, the entire purple section would be filled in as well as half of the green ring. Think of it like this:
0-1 = Academy Student Range 1-2 = Genin Range 2-3 = Chūnin Range 3-4 = Jōnin Range 4-5 = Kage Range 5-6 = Legendary Range [not included on chart]
Thus having the first two sections (purple and green) completely filled in would give that stat the equivalent of a high-performing or a low Chūnin. A Chūnin who was completely, impossibly average would have a value of about 2.5 in every category - right in the middle of the Chūnin range.
Below is an example of a filled-in chart for a particularly powerful Jōnin. There's also an alternate template that uses a line to show stats, rather than coloring in the blocks by themselves. The stats for this character are listed in the chart below.
Slightly over the skill of your average genin, mostly due to his fighting in an underground league for most of his life (even before he went to the academy). Body is the best reflection of this due to learning how to use it above everything else. His best talent is Agility due to his skill with Shukuchi (even a Sharingan has difficulties keeping up with him). Soul, Control, and Intellect is below average while Mind is still in Academy levels due to him not quite being accustomed to life outside of a jail cell. He has street smarts...but is practically an idiot towards everything else.
