Sakura is the heroine of the series NARUTO and the only female ninja of Team 7. During the first chapters, she is physically weak and has an immense crush on Sasuke and dislikes Naruto . Her strengths include her excellent chakra control and being generally smart as shown by in the first part of the Chuunin exams, where she is easily able to answer the questions on the exam despite them being described as impossible. Sakura highlights her weaknesses during the second part, where she was unable to defeat the Sound ninja attacking Sasuke and Naruto. She makes a pledge to become a better ninja and person. In order to escape and fight with the little skills she had, she cut her long hair with a kunai. In the third part of the Chuunin Exams she goes up against Ino Yamanaka, her former friend but current rival for Sasuke's affections. The two defeat each other simultaneously. This turns their relationship into a rivalry between friends. After the time skip she is now a chuunin having been trained by Tsunade for the past two years. She is now a medical Ninja of considerable skill, and is foreshadowed to surpass her tutor. Evidence includes scenes such as when she is able to do a complicated surgery to extract poisons out of Kankuro body and make an antidote of the new type poison that Sasori used within seconds, which the Hidden Sand Village's medical ninjas were unable to do. During the time skip she's also matured in personality, she has become calmer compared to when she was a genin(12). Sakura has grown not only as a medical ninja, but now she's also a capable fighter. She manages to destroy the ground with her fist easily using her inhuman strength, a chakra control technique she learned from Tsunade. She is also able to beat Sasori from the Akatsuki, who is one of the strongest members. Additionally she is a genjutsu type, and though she has yet to use that potential she does show an almost complete immunity to being trapped in an illusion. Overall; she is considered to be the strongest female/medic ninja.
