A ninja is only as good as her weapons, so Tenten works tirelessly to care for hers. With so many different types and countless ways of using them, Tenten's weapon attacks help give her team a flawless fighting style. But her talent isn't her only team contribution: Tenten is also known for her solid reasoning and opinions.
Debut (Manga) : Chapter 36
Debut (Anime) : Naruto Episode 20
Tenten appears as a playable character in 7 out of the 9 games in the Clash of Ninja series. She also appears in 7 out of the 8 Naruto: Ultimate Ninja video games.
Tenten strongly believes that female ninja can be as strong as a male ninja. Tenten's personal dream is to become as strong as Tsunade. She can be quite fierce sometimes, especially with Lee, violently shaking him whenever he is left unconscious. Tenten also has shown a strong distaste for weakness or being overly dependent for other people. Despite this, she is not above showing a softer side when it comes to her teammates. She holds great respect for her teammate Neji and often helps him train.
Tenten specializes in weapons, which she carries in a number of scrolls in Part I and a single large scroll in Part II. In Part I, her arsenal is composed mostly of steel projectiles, though in Part II she is shown using a spiked bomb. She is also capable with taijutsu and melee-based weapons.
Her favored method of strength attack is to throw her scrolls in the air in such a way as to cause them to spin above her, then jump between them and toss a myriad of weapons at her opponent in rapid succession, otherwise known as Twin Rising Dragons. She also uses strings to control and guide the direction of her weapons.
