A Genin from the village of Konoha, Tenten has deadly accuracy with her kunai and shuriken.TenTen made it to the preliminaries of the third round but was defeated by Temari from Hidden Sand. Though Tenten had great accuracy, Temari's fan blew away any weapon thrown at her. Temari then used her cycling winds technique to hold and slice Tenten. The injured Tenten then fell through the air and landed back first on Temari's folder fan. Unconscious, Tenten was eliminated from the Chuunin Exam.

She later watched her teammate Neji in the Exam's third test. She complemented Naruto's strength but felt there was no way he could lose to Naruto. She was surprised when he eventually did get defeated, but recognized Naruto's strength. She and her team continued to train and she assisted Neji in pushing himself even further. As the years passed she and her team eventually passed the Chuunin Exam. When a request came in from Hidden Sand to help rescue their Kazekage Gaara, Guy and his team were sent to help. TenTen and her team faced off against Hoshigaki Kisame. Kisame managed to get the drop on the team and imprison TenTen, Neji and Lee in water prisons. Neji broke them free and Guy managed to eventually defeat their opponent, who would turn out to have been a lower powered Kisame in a different body.

The team then proceeded on to Akatsuki's base. When they removed the seal guarding the cave, they were faced with doppelgangers who emerged from the earth itself. The team managed to eventually defeat the guardians and assist Naruto and Kakashi, who were chasing the fleeing Deidara. TenTen's team stopped Deidara and gave Kakashi enough time to send the Akatsuki member to another location using his Mangekyou. With Deidara stopped, they took control of Gaara's corpse, which allowed elder Sand kunoichi Chiyo to use her resurrection technique to revive Gaara. They returned to Sand, then wished their comrades goodbye and returned to Konoha.
