|Faction Name||Rock Village (Iwagakure)|
The inhabitants of this village show unwavering determination and choose the island life according to their native skills.

In addition, they also have the ability to fuse with the stones they train on, showing a unique level of shinobi warfare. People are as hard, tough and durable as the stones they were born among.
This village may look cold and remote from afar, but the people are as warm as the earth below. Extremely protective of their homeland and compassionate towards their fellows, their sense of community runs deep. Inspired by a sense of resilience and survival, Iwagakure produces shinobi known for their toughness and fortitude. Solid as rocks but alive as a beating heart inside: this is Iwagakure, Rock Village for you!
Iwagakure has existed since the formation of ninja villages and has always been famous for its impregnable defenses, mimicking the symbol of their village: a monolith that withstands all odds. Therefore, it is no surprise that the shinobi of Iwagakure are known for their defensive-oriented fighting strategies. This unique approach to combat can be traced back to the founding of the village. The era of the First Great Ninja War was the stronghold of Iwagakure's history. They were the main participants and strongly opposed the Konoha authorities. This war marked the importance of peace treaties, as the loss of many lives awakened the countryside to its inherently destructive ways.
The Third Great Ninja War also left its mark on the history of Rock Village. During this conflict, the shinobi of Iwagakure clashed with the shinobi of Konoha, resulting in many tales of bravery and sacrifice. It was during this battle that Onoki, the Third Tsuchikage, earned a reputation for bravery.
In a subsequent series of events, Iwagakure demonstrated its advanced growth, and Deidara of Akatsuki came from this faction. Known for his Explosive Clay, Deidara carefully developed this technique to not only defend his enemies, but to challenge them more aggressively in battle, showing Iwagakure's skill and adaptability.
Although Rock Village wasn't always the epicenter, it remained an undeniable force during the Fourth Great Shinobi War. This village and its shinobi continued to prove their worth as they played a major role in winning key battles against the Ten-Tails clones. Throughout its history, Iwagakure has been strong and loyal to its namesake. Despite many wars and producing impressive shinobi, the village remains an inspiring symbol of perseverance and resilience in the Naruto universe.
The village itself is formed from the surrounding stone, providing not only structural strength, but also excellent camouflage, blending seamlessly into the rocky terrain. The buildings are like an extension of the landscape, precisely carved and sculpted, showing the inhabitants' mastery of Earth Release ninjutsu. The barren, rocky terrain is perfect for shinobi as it shapes their experience and techniques.
But despite its stoic exterior, Iwagakure is far from dead. The robust vegetation that grows here and there adds a touch of green to the mostly brown and gray landscape. In addition, the village is usually shrouded in a thin mist, which further enhances its mystical charm.
Iwagakure's climate is not the hottest, so visitors who are used to the temperate climates of other large villages can often find their hair standing on end. But the unique location, wild beauty and terrifyingly impressive rock formations have intrigued many to explore this extraordinary hidden village. The rock village is an impressive symbol of strength and resilience.
