A Genin from the village of Konoha, Chouji hails from the Akimichi clan know for their ability to control the size of their body.
Chouji participated in the Chuunin Exam taking place in Konoha Village. By passing he would attain the Ninja rank of Chuunin. He and his team were able to pass the first and second tests. Chouji then fought in the preliminaries for the third exam test, but he ends up losing to Kinata Dosu from Hidden Sound.

Chouji spends the following weeks cheering for his friend Shikamaru during his match in the third test of the Exam. During this period Chouji was neglecting training as hard as he could, preferring to spend most of his time eating. When Chouji was asked by Shikamaru to help retrieve Sasuke he joined along. During their tracking of the Sound Four, they were trapped by Sound ninja Jiroubou. Chouji took Jiroubou's insults to his weight and to his friend Shikamaru's leadership abilities to heart. He demanded his friends continue on while he fought Jiroubou alone. Chouji managed to force Jiroubou into his level two cursed seal form. On his last legs, Chouji ingest the third and final of the secret Akimichi soldier ration pill. The pill boosted the ingester's chakra immensely but put a huge price on the person's life. The power gave Chouji the ability to defeat Jiroubou, but he passed out afterwards from all the pain.

Leaf medical ninja were able to find Chouji's body shortly afterwards and rush him back to Konoha for treatment. It was only the high medical training of the Hokage Tsunade that countered the affects of the pill and saved Chouji's life. Afterwards Chouji felt he had wasted his time before in not training properly. So he demanded his Jounin sensei Asuma train him to make up for lost time.

Chouji later served on a brief mission to apprehend the Stupid Brothers, Fuujin and Raijin, escapees from a ninja correctional facility. His training had now given him the ability to use Bubun Baika no Jutsu (Partial Multi-Size) without the use of his pills.
