A Genin from the village of Konoha, Shino hails from the Aburame clan know for their ability to control insects. These insects are introduced into the body of the Aburame clan at birth. The clan member and the insects then form a partnership. The insects will feed on the chakra of the ninja, in exchange for following the commands of the clan member when so desired.Shino participated in the Chuunin Exam taking place in Konoha Village. By passing he would attain the Ninja rank of Chuunin. He and his team passed the first and second tests. Shino then fights in the preliminaries for the third exam test and defeats Zaku from Hidden Sound, advancing him to the third and final round.

In the third and final round Shino was matched against Kankurou from Hidden Sand, when it came time for their match Kankurou gave up before the match could begin. Kankurou and his siblings were on a mission to help capture Uchiha Sasuke and his being missing for his own match forced Kankurou to panic and throw his match. This surprised Shino and caused him to tail Kankurou when the invasion formally began. Catching up to Uchiha Sasuke who had earlier fled in pursuit of the siblings, Shino told Sasuke to continue on after Gaara and Temari while he himself would take on Kankurou. Kankurou used his puppet to poison Shino, but not before Shino managed to send his bugs along the chakra puppet strings to attack the hidden Kankurou and defeat him. The poison knocked Shino out, but his father Shibi later found his son and used his own insects to remove the poison from Shino's body.

Shino would later go on a mission with his father and miss an opportunity to go on the mission to retrieve Sasuke. When his teammate Kiba later returned from this mission, he demanded that Kiba tell him everything that happened because he wanted to know all the details. Kiba surmised Shino was annoyed he missed out on such a dangerous mission.
