Why are people making a racket and asking if Hinata is going to be the heroine in this movie? Shizune then says that Sakura "used to faint often when she was younger", while we have only seen her faint twice in all the manga, both during the test to become Kakashi's trainee. Sasuke told them both he intended to return to the Leaf Village to kill everyone. However, Naruto suddenly collapsed from the poison kunai that Sasuke used to nick Naruto's face when he saved Sakura from him, and Sakura panicked, and gave him an antidote on Kakashi's request. Sakura's natural control of her chakra has been taken to new heights over the time skip, an ability utilized to its fullest by the training she has done with Tsunade.

While she despised Naruto at the beginning, she is able to come around to him and eventually envy his Sakura Haruno from part one courage as she sees him in battle. Abilities At the start of the series, Sakura's only defining characteristic is her intelligence, largely due to her interest in memorizing things and the taking of quizzes while in the Academy.
Trivia The name "Haruno" means "spring field". A spring field can be cultivated and orderly or it can be wild, like how Sakura's personality is. Sakura Haruno shares the same name as Wandaba Style's bratty nursery rhyme singer. Quotes "Shannaro! The English dub uses "Cha" instead. I'm so in love with you, I can't even stand it! The only things I can do for Naruto are small and insignificant.
I promised Naruto I said that this time we'd be together! Women have to be strong in order to survive. Tweet Remove Format Clean. Cancel Update. What size image should we insert?

For the anime, her accessories are all painted as a standard blue and is never shown to wear any cosmetics. The second season Naruto Shippuden anime accurately follows the colour scheme used in the manga. Sakura has had various places in the fan polls for the Naruto cast. In the first poll she ranked 5th, the second she fell to 14th, the third she reached 9th, the fourth she ranked 10th, in the fifth she ranked 8th, in the sixth she ranked 12, seventh she ranked 6th with 9, votes, and in the eighth poll she tied for 12th with Sai.
Sakura is the only member of Team 7 whose parents have never been shown, her mother has been heard talking but is never seen. But now it's my turn to take the lead, and all of you can watch me from the background! Sakura has had some of the most dramatic growth of the series.
Her infatuation with Sasuke was the reason her childhood friendship with Ino Yamanaka fell apart. They both grew their hair out long because they had heard a rumour that Sasuke liked girls with long hair. She tried to play the sweet and innocent young girl, but often times her inner thoughts are exposed in the series through what is called the "Inner Sakura".
It shows that she's far more aggressive than the face she shows to the public and enjoys immature activities, such as pranks. Though, she was open in her hatred for Naruto. She always felt that she was being left behind in her squad since Sasuke was already so skilled and Naruto was showing constant improvement. Her overindulgence in superficial issues, such as her hair care, nearly got her and her team killed during the Chunin Exams.
Tired of always being the victim in need of being saved, she used her own kunai to slice her long hair to free herself and defend her friends. She battled Ino for the second potion of the Chunin Exams, even though they both lost, their battle helped them work out their issues and mend their broken friendship.
After the invasion of the Hidden Leaf Village, Sakura was surprised to learn that it was Naruto and not Sasuke who saved her from Gaara. Her opinion of Naruto slowly began to rise, but Sasuke began to move further away emotionally. She tried to stop Naruto from fighting and jumped into the middle of it. She may have been killed if not for Kakashi Hatake ending the fight. Later that night, she ran into Sasuke who was leaving the village to go to Orochimaru.
At first she tried to get him to stay but when that failed she pleaded with him to take her along. She confessed her love, but he still ignored her. When she threatened to scream, he moved behind her, thanked her, then knocked her unconscious. Shikamaru refused to allow Sakura to join the retrieval team, and in tears she begged Naruto to bring Sasuke back.
This mission failed and Naruto was nearly killed. When Naruto left to go train with Jiraiya, Sakura turned to the Fifth Hokage, Tsunade, to be trained by her so she could help Naruto on his return. Next time, she could help bring Sasuke back. After a two year time skip in the manga series, Sakura is now at the age of 15 or 16 years old and reached the rank of Chunin.
She was trained in all the skills and techniques of Tsunade and even has the same level of monstrous strength. No longer would she be playing the support role and was now a force to be feared in hand-to-hand combat. When Naruto returned, their first mission together was to save Gaara from the Akatsuki.
She cured Gaara's brother Kankuro from the effects of an unknown poison, and defeated Sasori of the Akatsuki with the assistance of Chiyo. They eventually found Sasuke and she got her first look at the powers of the Nine-tailed Fox sealed within Naruto.
After Sasuke escaped with Orochimaru, Sakura spent most of her time back at the Leaf Village after they returned. She was shocked to later learn that Sasuke had joined the Akatsuki and was classified as a Rouge Ninja. Sasuke's Team 7 replacement, Sai, would question her about what she was doing to Naruto with the promise he made to her to get Sasuke back.
With this in mind, she made a resolution that she shared with the rest of her friends. First she met with Naruto and confessed to him that she was in love with him and had given up on Sasuke. When this failed to get Naruto to return, she left in search of Sasuke so she could kill him herself. He got the best of her and was ready to kill her, but she was saved at the last moment by Kakashi, who was told what she was attempting.
Sasuke told them both he intended to return to the Leaf Village to kill everyone. It is unknown if Sakura's confession of love was her honest feelings or just a ploy to get Naruto to stop chasing after Sasuke for her. Before graduating, Sakura and the rest of the students were given the task of forming a chakra clone of themselves, which Sakura passed.
She was now a Genin lowest ninja rank and would soon learn who her two teammates are. The next day, on her way to school she ran into Ino. However, her other teammate was Naruto, who had a crush on Sakura. Sakura was now a part of Team 7, with Naruto and Sasuke, and their leader was Kakashi. The team learned of a pass or fail survival test that Kakashi was going to administer.
The next day, they arrived at the training location with their ninja gear ready to go. When the test begins, Sakura showed more interest in following Sasuke around and ignored Naruto. After this, Sakura was lectured by Kakashi for not helping Naruto, and she finally realized how serious this test was. Kakashi then tied Naruto up and gave Sakura and Sasuke food to eat.
He warned them that if they allow Naruto to eat, they will fail immediately. Kakashi showed up extremely angry and demands an explanation; Sakura told Kakashi that they fed him because he was their teammate. Kakashi then revealed that they are the first team to pass this test, and now the team is ready for missions. Team 7 is assigned to protect a bridge builder named Tazuna.
Their mission becomes a Class A ranked mission when they discover that a high ranked ninja was after him. Team 7 runs into a Hidden Mist village ninja named Zabuza. They discover that he is extremely powerful and they prepare before the confrontation.
Sakura would eventually head to the battlefield herself, where she discovers that she has amazing control over her own chakra. Upon returning to Konoha, Team 7 arrive just in time to register and take the Chunin Exams. The exams are used to promote Genin from all hidden villages to Chunin rankings.
The first part of the exam is written, which is good for Sakura. The second part of the Chunin Exams was a survival test. Each team was given a scroll to protect, and the team must steal more scrolls and take it to the middle of the arena. Team 7 is first attacked by Orochimaru, whom Naruto and Sasuke were able to fend off.
However, both of them were rendered unconscious during the fight and Sakura was left to care for them until they recovered. Unfortunately, Genin from the Sound village were ordered by Orochimaru to finish off Team 7. Sakura tries her best to protect her unconscious teammates. Rock Lee arrived to protect Sakura, but was defeated by the Sound Genin.
Sakura in turn, cuts off her own hair and matures during the process. Sakura continued to try and defend her team, until Ino and her team realized that Sakura was in trouble. An unconscious Sasuke re-awakened during the fight after receiving Orochimaru's cursed seal, and proceeded to ask Sakura who injured her. Quickly overcome by his new cursed mark, he begins a violent rampage on the Sound Genin.
Frightened by his new behavior, a tearful Sakura rushes to his side and wraps her arms around him, begging him to stop. Her tearful words and embrace get through to him, and his cursed seal quickly recedes. Team 7 would be allowed to rest while Ino and her team watch their backs. When they fully recover, the team heads toward the middle and meets a fellow Konoha Genin named Kabuto.
The four help each other to reach the middle of the arena and are successful. Reaching the middle allows them to proceed in the exam. The next part of the exam were one-on-one preliminary battles. Sakura was forced to battle Ino first, but the two accepted their fate. Sakura and Ino go down to the battle area and insult each other face to face.
Ino cuts her hair claiming to follow what Sakura did earlier, however Ino had placed her own chakra in the cut hair. When Sakura came near the hair spread upon the floor, Ino was able to use her chakra to ensnare Sakura in place. Ino appeared to be the victor as she was going to force Sakura to forfeit.
The two of them were both exhausted, and would charge each other for the final blow. Sakura and Ino both strike the other's face simultaneously, resulting in a double knockout. The final decision of the match was declared a draw, and both were disqualified from the exams.
When Sakura and Ino recovered, they reconciled their friendship. The third part of the Chunin Exams was a tournament for those that passed the second part of the exams. Naruto and Sasuke both advanced to this round, and Sakura, who was disqualified, watched the rest of the exam.
Many of the ninjas were forced into sleep by a genjutsu, Sakura was one of the few qualified Genin to repel the genjutsu, as she was trained in its use. Kakashi then assigned Sakura to wake Naruto and go after Sasuke. When the two of them catch up to Sasuke, they discover him fighting Gaara in a monster form. Upon catching up with Sasuke, Sakura protects him from Gaara's attacks, though Gaara uses his sand to immobilize her.
As the sand slowly suffocates Sakura, Naruto fights to defeat Gaara, determined to save her life. Just as Sasuke was recovering from his injuries, he became more violent and aggressive toward everyone. Sakura tried to stop Naruto and Sasuke as they were fighting at the top of the hospital, and she nearly got caught in the middle of their most powerful attacks.
She was saved the Kakashi appearing to deflect the boys and flinging them away. Kakashi promised her that everything would be fine soon. This didn't turn out to be true, because Sakura caught Sasuke leaving the village to go to Orochimaru. At first she begged him to take her with him. After she threatened to scream, Sasuke appeared behind her, thanked her, then knocked her out.
She reported his actions, and Naruto, Shikamaru, Neji, and Choji were sent after him. Before they left, she begged Naruto to bring him back, and he confidently promised he would. When Naruto set out the next day to retrieve Sasuke, Sakura came out to meet him. Sakura begged for Naruto to bring Sasuke back, believing Naruto to be the only person who could get through to Sasuke.
Naruto, looking at the crying Sakura, promised her that he would bring Sasuke back, making it his promise to her for a lifetime. This brought more tears as Sakura realised that Naruto knew how she felt and that he had always been there for her. After Naruto failed to bring Sasuke back and was left hospitalised in the process, he apologized to Sakura for his failure and asserted that he would definitely keep his promise.
Inspired by Naruto's determination, she replied that, next time, they would retrieve Sasuke together, and that she would be there to help him from now on. Determined to never be useless again and to save Sasuke and help Naruto, Sakura then asked to become Tsunade's apprentice, a request which Tsunade happily accepted.
Two years have gone by. When Naruto returned, Tsunade gave the two of them the mission of taking on Kakashi to show off the results of their training. He gave them the bell test once more, and the pair gave him much more of a challenge. They eventually got the bells by outwitting Kakashi. Just as their training ended, they received an emergency notice from the Sand Village that the Akatsuki had attacked and taken Gaara, the Kazekage.
Team seven was given the mission to retrieve him, and they caught up with his sister Temari, who had just left the Leaf Village. When they arrived at the Sand Village, they found Gaara's brother Kankuro had been poisoned with a special venom from Sasori, an Akatsuki member.
She used the justu she had learned from Tsunade to save his life and develop an antidote. Team 7 was joined by Sand Village elder, Chiyo, in the search for Gaara. During the journey to the Land of Rivers, Sakura finally learned that Naruto was a Jinchuriki, a human with the Tailed Beasts sealed inside of them.
Their pursuit was held back by who they thought was Itachi Uchiha, but revealed to be corpse puppets once defeated. Chiyo then explained that If the beasts are ever removed the host will die. Sakura finally understood the threat Naruto had been living under his whole life. They reached the base of the Akatsuki and were joined by Team 9. The teams separated to break the seal, but. Naruto lost his temper and chased after Deidara.
Kakashi followed, and Chiyo and Sakura fought with Sasori. After destroying his first puppet form, his more human puppet body was revealed. They had both used Sakura's antidote so Sasori's poisons would but useless for a short time. Sakura was injured after the antidote had worn off. Though Sasori had been defeated, Chiyo used a jutsu that sacrificed some of her own life to heal Sakura.
As a prize for winning, Sasori revealed he had a spy in Orochimaru's camp he was scheduled to meet. Chiyo and Sakura caught up to Naruto after he got back Gaara's body. Chiyo then used her forbidden jutsu once more with the help of Naruto's chakra to revive Gaara. Sakura withheld from Naruto that this would sacrifice Chiyo's life.
After resting at the Sand Village, they all returned home with a source of how to find Sasuke. Kakashi had been badly wounded during the mission and was forced to be hospitalized after they returned to the Leaf Village. Naruto and Sakura would gain a new leader and teammate for their next missions. Yamato was assigned as the team leader and Sai was assigned as their third teammate.
The new team sets out and discovers that the spy was waiting for the dead Sasori. However, it turns out to be a trap and the group battles Kabuto and Orochimaru. Naruto is left badly injured, but Sakura was able to heal his wounds. Going to room after room looking for Sasuke, they eventually confront Sasuke outside of the lair. They try to convince Sasuke to return to Konoha, but he declines once again and begins attacking them.
Sakura tries to stop Sasuke, even attacking him. However, Sasuke was able to escape. The team returns to Konoha after the failed mission, Naruto and Sakura were deeply depressed that they once again could not recover Sasuke.
At first she tried to get him to stay but when that failed she pleaded with him to take her along. In the New Era, she isn't surprised by Shin getting betrayed by his clones and having his philosophy turned against him, given what happened to previous villains like Obito and Madara. Taijutsu against her would be suicidal, except for the very few who could block her super strength, and she could just instantly heal off any damage done by ninjutsu. Sakura would eventually head to the battlefield herself, where she discovers that she has amazing control over her own chakra.
