Sakura is the most intelligent ninja in the village. Her greatest strength is
of course, her intelligence. She believes that her forehead is extradinarily big
and also has a big crush on Uchiha Sasuke, who apparently, is too occupied with
reviving his village and killing a certain murderer. Sakura paired with up with
Naruto and Sasuke to train with Kakashi in the Genin training.
While shy on the outside, she is very fierce on the inside, evident by Inner
Sakura, who pops in on occasion for comedic relief. She is not very strong
physically, but her keen sense of intelligence and enthusiasm towards learning
and improving herself make up for it. She, too, can be very stubborn when she
sets her mind to things.

A Genin from the village of Konoha, Sakura is a teammate of Uzumaki Naruto.
Though Naruto has a crush on her, she does not return the feelings. She instead
focuses all her attention on Uchiha Sasuke. But like Naruto to her, Sasuke finds
Sakura more annoying than anything.
Haruno Sakura participates with her team in the Chuunin Exam. During the second
test, Orochimaru makes his move towards Sasuke and places a cursed seal on his
neck. Naruto is also injured by Orochimaru in the process. It was then up to
Sakura to protect them in the Forest of Death when the three Sound Genin began
to attack. Sakura came to realize she hadn't been much help in previous missions
but this time she could prove herself. She fought back against the Genin, but
wasn't much of a match for them. After Ino and her team showed up, Sasuke awoke
and was able to drive off the Sound Genin with his new cursed seal power. Later
in the third round preliminary match, Sakura was placed against Ino for her
match. Both young women had a deep rivalry between them, both longing for the
affection of Sasuke. To that end they decided to go all out and fight each
other, in the end though they both knocked each other out and scored a double
K.O.. As a result they were both eliminated.
