Temari is passive and intelligent. She is a girl of proud and aggressive character and as a kunoichi of the Hidden Village of the Arena, she is ruthless and disdainful with her rivals, especially in the first season in which she treats them almost like offal after defeating them or seeing them defeated (as seen against Tenten or Lee). Despite this, she is also somewhat maternal with her siblings and always tries to take care of them and resolve their internal disputes. She seems the least cold of the three, however this is not a disadvantage as her powerful personality makes her stand out from her younger siblings.
According to Shikamaru after the battle with Tayuya, he believes she could be an even more fearsome woman and wife than his own mother (who has been seen arguing with his father on occasion).
Temari is an analytical kunoichi, she can deduce the weak points of an opponent soon after the start of a fight and think of the best strategy against him. Her character is dominant and direct towards those around her, she does not hesitate to speak her mind. She also has a compassionate side towards others and a high valuation of peace, as she demonstrates by questioning the invasion of Konoha during the flashback of the Chūnin exam arc. Three years later she is seen as a Sunagakure ambassador to Konoha, assisting in the preparation for the next Chūnin exams. Her relationship with Gaara has improved since her first appearance, though it is not as close as Kankurō is towards him. However it is shown that the welfare of his siblings is one of his priorities.
Most of Temari’s appearances are seen partnered with Shikamaru Nara. They face each other in the fights in the first round of the Chūnin exams. Then, during the Sasuke’s Escape arc, it is she who goes to help Shikamaru in his fight with Tayuya and Shikamaru returns the favor, saving him from Kujaku. When Naruto returns to Konoha, after his training with Jiraiya, seeing them together they are asked if they were on a date, but both deny it.
Although they knew to be on “friendly” terms, Temari used to name Shikamaru as the person she most wants to fight with, besides admitting on many occasions that he is a more than worthy shinobi with a potential even of Hokage, showing that she has been surprised by the boy several times, arousing his interest. In the anime, it is implied that Temari is in love with Shikamaru, since she was very nervous when Yukata and Matsuri mentioned it before Daimaru; but in the end, they ended up getting married and would have a son.
Currently, Temari is a rather strict mother, as she left her son and husband without food for taking Shikadai’s behavior lightly. She becomes the matriarch of her family due to the fact that they are very afraid of her anger; besides guessing what they think. It is worth mentioning that previously she was not so impulsive, rather, she used to be cold and calculating, but now she does not hesitate to use violence when she is angry. She also became loyal to the Nara Clan and cares a lot about her legacy, but she also has her carefree side, like when her son gave up on the Chūnin Exams.
In addition, Temari has a peculiar taste, because while chestnuts and tofu soup are her favorite foods, she absolutely detests octopus and squid; and her hobby is observing plants.

Temari was born as the eldest daughter of Karura and Rasa, the Fourth Kazekage. While it was customary for close relationships with a Kage to be a jinchūriki , neither she nor her younger brother Kankuro were compatible with Shukaku, so Gaara was chosen.
In the anime, she was growing up as a relative of the Fourth Kazekage and Gaara. Temari had a hard time making friends, as everyone was intimidated by her lineage. Daimaru would spend a lot of time with her, though it was always to play pranks on her. She also used to play with Sen and Yome when they were little girls
Chūnin Exams arc
Temari’s first appearance in Naruto occurs in chapter 20 of the manga and 36 of the anime, alongside Kankurō after Konohamaru crashes head-on into him. She tries with little effort to stop her younger brother by warning him that Gaara would be with them soon. Finally, after Gaara’s appearance they both leave, without first Sakura asking where they are from, and Temari showing her Genin pass coming from the Sand Village.
During the written exam, she questions the method implemented. Then Kankurō would pass her the answers obtained through his puppet Karasu. In the Forest of Death, after Gaara annihilates the Rain Village Genins, when he attempts to annihilate those who were watching the encounter, Team 8, she stops him by fearfully asking him as a favor to her older sister.
During the preliminaries for the Chūnin Exams, Temari must face Tenten. Tenten begins the encounter by throwing numerous weapons at Temari, which she easily deflects using her fan with almost imperceptible movements. Temari warns Tenten that when her fan is completely open showing the three moons it would end the fight. After having fought, Tenten uses her ultimate Jutsu Ascending Twin Dragons but Temari counterattacks and damages Tenten. Upon reaching such an instance, Temari uses her fully opened fan to throw Tenten into a whirlwind of wind mixed with Chakra. When the whirlwind disappears, Tenten falls directly onto Temari’s closed fan, who tries to throw her towards the weapons strewn on the floor, despite having already been named the winner of the match. Rock Lee jumps into the arena saving Tenten. In the manga the fight between the two of them was not shown, appearing only the beginning and the end, without showing what happened in it.
In the time between the preliminaries and finals of the exam, the flashback in which she questions the invasion of Konoha is shown, citing that it was a very difficult treaty for the village to get. That’s when we see her assessment for peace for the first time.
In the final rounds of the Chunin Exam, Temari fights Shikamaru Nara, knowing the shadow manipulation abilities, which he uses to capture his opponents, Temari remains out of shadow range. This encounter shows the great strategist abilities that both have when it comes to analyzing an enemy. Despite this caution, Shikamaru uses various tactics to buy time as the shadows in the stadium grow. While Temari dodges his attacks and prepares her last strategy, Shikamaru manages to catch her. He had been guiding her to a position where his shadow could travel through the holes caused by the previous fight, without her noticing. Despite this, Shikamaru gives up at the last moment claiming that he didn’t have enough Chakra left, but had thought of two hundred different ways on how to end the match. Temari is finally declared the winner of the match.
The Konoha Crush
When the invasion of Konoha begins, during Sasuke and Gaara’s fight, Temari and Kankurō are forced to leave the village carrying Gaara. In the anime, when Sasuke pursues them Temari delegates Gaara’s care to Kankurō to try to buy time by holding Sasuke, though he easily defeats her. He would later reappear once Sasuke catches up to his siblings, again carrying Gaara to escape while Kankurō fights Sasuke, who is then replaced by Shino.
During the course of Gaara’s transformation into Shukaku, we can see how afraid she is of the monster, going into near shock. After Naruto defeats Gaara, she and Kankurō appear to protect her brother, who asks them to leave, during the trip back to the arena, Gaara apologizes to both of them for their attitude.
Sasuke Recovery Mission
As requested by the Fifth Hokage, Temari and her siblings, now allies of Konoha, go as reinforcements for Team Shikamaru, to try to rescue Sasuke Uchiha. Temari arrives to help Shikamaru in his fight with Tayuya, when he was about to surrender. She asks Shikamaru for information about his opponent, after explaining Tayuya’s abilities, Shikamaru thinks that they should back off to think of a strategy, to which she shows little interest. Temari uses a summoning technique with her fan: Kuchiyose, Kiri Kiri Mai, knocking the trees around them down from them and which causes Tayuya’s death.She later appears at the Konoha hospital criticizing Shikamaru’s lack of emotional control training. But her attitude changes after hearing Shikaku’s words to her son. And relieved to learn that all the team members are out of danger.
Sunagakure Support Mission
In the anime episodes, when a student of Gaara’s is kidnapped by the Four Men of the Heavenly Symbols, Temari and Kankuro, go with him to rescue her. During this saga, Temari is forced to confront a woman with similar abilities to her own. Temari uses many of her jutsu on her but she is able to evade them easily, her opponent’s abilities begin to overcome her. When Temari was about to lose; Shikamaru and Ino arrive as the reinforcements sent by Konoha to help them. Temari and Shikamaru immediately begin to quarrel about their last mission, then they create a strategy on how to defeat her using the shadow of the waterfall so Shikamaru can trap her with his shadow and Temari can attack her with his jutsu and defeat her.
Temari attended Konoha accompanying the Kazekage for a meeting with the Hokage. In it they discussed the new Chūnin Examination celebration. After a few days it was decided that the examination would be joint between the two villages. After this, the Sand Brothers returned to Sunagakure.
Later, when the first test began, Temari attended Konoha as a test proctor along with Shikamaru. After the first test, Temari starts the elimination phase prior to the second test.
When the participants reached the second phase, Temari is assigned as one of the supervisors. Before starting, she explains the rules of the test, and the test begins.
Temari is seen in the anime when she enters the office of the fifth Hokage accompanied by Shikamaru, at first Naruto does not recognize her and mistakes her for his opponent. While in the manga the encounter takes place in one of the streets of Konoha where Shikamaru and Temari meet Naruto and Sakura. Seeing them together, Naruto thinks they are on a date, which both deny clarifying that it is a mission, since Temari, now Jounin, is working as an ambassador of Sunagakure in Konoha for the preparation of the next Chūnin exams and Shikamaru has the mission to escort her, in addition to working as an examiner in the same.
Kazekage Rescue Mission
Later Naruto, Sakura and Kakashi would meet Temari on their way back to their village. Upon learning of Gaara’s kidnapping by Akatsuki, she joins Team 7 on their journey to Sunagakure. During the trip, Temari ends up understanding the strong bond between Gaara and Naruto and silently thanks him. Upon arriving at the village, Temari discovers that Kankurō has been severely injured while trying to chase after Gaara’s kidnappers. Wanting to Save her siblings Temari plans to join Team 7, but is assigned another mission. When Kankurō is recovered enough to walk, they leave to meet up with Team 7. Upon arriving at the scene, Gaara is being revived by The Elder Chiyo with Naruto’s help. Temari and Kankuro thank the Konoha team for saving their brother. Temari at that moment confesses that she never thought Naruto could help Gaara.
Five Kage summit
Temari reappears during the Kages Meeting accompanying Gaara to the meeting as his bodyguard. Temari and her siblings arrive safely in the Iron Country, where they are greeted by Mifune and his Samurai. When Zetsu appears during the Kages’ meeting, Temari and Kankurō take a defensive stance against Gaara.
When Sasuke appeared confronting the Raikage, and as Gaara intervened in the fight between the Raikage and Sasuke; she did not hesitate and went along with Gaara. Temari took action to save a samurai who had been hit with Amaterasu. Using her wind lightly so as to only cut the armor and not harm the Samurai, then Kankuro took the armor out of the area. Then she along with her Brothers and Darui tried to attack Sasuke, Temari used her Jutsu: Weasel Scythe against Sasuke but it was useless as Sasuke protected himself with his Susanoo.
Sasuke then leaves the meeting battlefield. Once they arrive, they see Tobi carrying Sasuke, who fainted. Tobi asks them to hand over Naruto and Killer B to him. Once the Kage refused the order, he officially declares the Fourth Shinobi War. Temari then follows her brothers to tell their Daimyo the news. Later, she and her siblings go to inform Naruto, Kakashi, Sai and Yamato about what happened at the Kage meeting.
Paradise Life on a Boat
Temari is given the mission to go to Konoha and deliver some information to Tsunade, when she delivers it and is about to return to her village, she is surprised by Konohamaru, who challenges her to a fight; at first Temari ignores him until she is forced to defend herself. Finally, Temari taunts him, claiming that the Sarutobi Clan was left without a good heir and that Naruto had sought out a lousy pupil. Konohamaru, furious about this, uses the Rasengan that Naruto taught him, coming close to seriously injuring the kunoichi, at the moment when she was about to counterattack she is stopped by Shikamaru, who had been informed of Konohamaru’s intentions by his teammates Udon and Moegi. After hearing Moegi’s story, Konohamaru realizes that the ‘King’ he wanted to protect was the civilians of the Leaf. Finally, Temari congratulates Konohamaru for mastering that high-level technique and then the team for being such promising shinobi, and finally returns to Sunagakure.
Fourth Shinobi World War
Temari accompanies Gaara to a meeting of the leaders of the allied forces in Kumogakure. Then she is seen during the last meeting that is held in order to prepare for the war.
After the Alliance ninja are placed in separate divisions, Temari is assigned to the Fourth Division alongside Shikamaru, and tells him that as a deputy leader she should make Gaara’s job easier for him, since her brother is the Commander of the entire alliance army. She is later seen together with many army ninjas waiting for Gaara and Onoki’s signal to attack the previous revived Kages. When she finds out that one of the Kages is her father, she is surprised and quite afraid of having to fight him. During the battle she confronts the Third Raikage, who gives them information about his abilities, but then attacks him with his Wind Element: Red.
But the Raikage however incapacitates the sealing team before being able to do anything. Visibly out of breath, Temari sees that her strategy won’t work and even more so with what Dodai told about the Raikage’s abilities. After hearing everything she needed a stronger wind technique and even more so hearing about the high level of stamina, she asks about how he died. Hearing the story that the Raikage fought against ten thousand shinobi for three days and three nights before he died, she is shocked to learn about it. She then states that in the team that is there now, none of them are good at wind type except her but miraculously Naruto appears at the same time and steps in saying that he will be the one in charge of defeating the Raikage.
In the anime, after having sealed the Third Raikage, Temari and her division were on their way to support Gaara’s main force, but at that, they receive a message from HQ having to turn back. While Chūkaku was in charge of removing the Third Raikage’s seal, Temari arrives and uses her Quick Decapitation jutsu to stop him and then seal him. Temari tells them that she will not allow them to release the Raikage, at that a boy who knows Temari appears and tells her that he has always loved her. Temari recognizes him, calling him Daimaru and uses her Jutsu: Weasel Sickle to drive him away.
Temari comments to him that she wouldn’t go out with him even if he were alive and that although she was saddened by his death she didn’t cry. When Matsuri and Yukata commented that Temari had a boyfriend referring to Shikamaru, Temari immediately denied it. After Daimaru was sealed, Temari used her wind to find Torune but when she was about to attack him with her Jutsu: Weasel Sickle, Torune used an insect clone to escape. Temari ordered to inform the Headquarters that, as there were no risks with the Raikage, they returned their course towards Gaara’s force.
He is later seen alongside Gaara, Onoki and Naruto in the fourth division facing off against Mu and the newly resurrected Madara Uchiha. After seeing him and realizing that the masked man was not as he claimed he asks Onoki if he had any idea who this could be, because he had used Akatsuki in ancient times, he tells him that he has no idea but whoever he is he had to be stopped. In the anime it could be seen how during the fight against Madara, Temari managed to reach him with one of her wind jutsus, although it did not cause any damage to him. After Madara showed his Rinnegan, he jumps to his starting position and in combination with his Susanoo drags an asteroid onto the battlefield, which Temari says she can’t believe this god-like power. Then, after the meteorite hits, she goes running to check on Gaara. From this point on he holds his left arm, so it looks like he broke it or hurt himself.
Birth of the Ten-Tails’ Jinchūriki
Temari arrives with the Shinobi Alliance to aid Naruto in his fierce battle against the Ten-Tails, Madara and Obito. He is seen attacking several times with his fan. After Neji’s death, Naruto passes Kurama’s chakra to her to increase her abilities and she launches along with other Alliance shinobi an attack to stop the approaching Ten-Tails’ tails. Temari subsequently also launches a counterattack of all the Alliance shinobi. After seeing how Shikamaru took it upon himself to encourage the Shinobi Alliance to not give up and stay focused, Temari comments that Shikamaru would make a good Hokage since he has the ability to change people’s hearts, which is one of the basic requirements to obtain that position.
Kaguya Ōtsutsuki Strikes
Subsequently, Madara succeeded in casting the Infinity Tsukuyomi, which caused Temari to be affected by the genjutsu and subsequently trapped and bound to the Tree God.
Some time later, the genjutsu was dispelled by Naruto and Sasuke at the end of the war.
Shikamaru Hiden: A Cloud Drifting in Silent Darkness
Two years had passed after the Fourth War, and the Shinobi Union was formed; Temari along with her brother Kankurō were representatives of Sunagakure. In one of the meetings, Temari noticed a strange behavior in Shikamaru, so after the meeting she went to talk to him about the matter, but the Nara denied it and when she asked him if there were problems in Konoha, Shikamaru said it was none of his business so that led Temari to be disappointed in him and with the anger she had she slapped him and threw him to the ground and retired with tears in her eyes saying that she was wrong about him.
Back in Sunagakure, Temari went to talk to Gaara who was looking at the horizon, where the wind always blew in the Arena. She told him about the meeting and about Shikamaru, and Gaara noticed the affection that his sister felt for the shinobi and her concern so he ordered her to go to Konoha to find out what was going on and if it was something serious he could intervene but not resort to violence. Arriving in Konoha, Temari could not take it anymore and entered the Hokage’s Office breaking down the door and asking for information about where Shikamaru was.
Upon learning of Shikamaru’s mission she went to his aid along with Ino and Chōji .Upon reaching the Land of Silence, she made an epic entrance destroying one of the walls of Gengo’s palace, and they arrived just in time as Shikamaru was giving up, and to get him to react Temari slapped him again; Shikamaru reacted from the blow and decided to chase Gengo while Temari, Ino and Chōji took care of Sai, Ro and Soku. Temari had an encounter with Soku, but even though Soku used his Chakra Needles, Temari came out on top. When everyone got out of Gengo’s Genjutsu they ran to Shikamaru’s place to watch the final battle.
When it was all over, Temari was on her way back to her village, but she was stopped by Shikamaru who started talking to her about controlling the strength of her punches, and she replied that she would do it every time Nara looked like an idiot and Shikamaru said I’m counting on you, leaving her astonished. Then he continued talking and asked her for a date, she told him to be prepared because it would be a “Fastidious”, and leaves. After a while she has a date with Shikamaru; to which he asks for the day off to be with her. In the novel, she is shown giving birth to her son, and together with her husband they decide to name him.
The Last: Naruto the Movie
Two years after the Fourth Shinobi World War, the five Kages met to discuss an issue of global concern, the collision of the Moon. During that meeting Temari served as the Kazekage’s bodyguard.
Temari was in charge of the protection of the village together with her siblings when some meteors collided.
After the Konoha ninjas saved the earth from the collision, Gaara, Temari and Kankuro are seen with other Sunagakure ninjas celebrating the victory.
Konoha Hiden: The Perfect Day for a Wedding
While in Konoha for matters related to the chunin exam, Temari ran into Chōji and Shikamaru. The latter asked her to accompany him to visit hot springs, which made Temari blush. However it was only for her to help Shikamaru find a place for Naruto and Hinata’s honeymoon. When Temari found out she was very upset.
Some time later, Temari returned to Konoha as the Kazekage’s bodyguard. During her stay she met Shikamaru, who proposed to her for dinner.
On the day of the wedding, Temari approached Shikamaru, with whom she maintained a very amorous behavior, something that caught Ino’s attention.
Several years after the events of the war, Temari married Shikamaru and became an inhabitant of Konoha. In addition, Temari taught various wind techniques to Mirai Sarutobi, as did Shikamaru.
Being at home, she received her brothers Gaara and Kankuro as they had arrived for the meeting of the five Kages that would occur in the village. At that moment, Shikadai, her son, also arrived, amazed to see his uncles. When Shikadai greeted them, Temari told him to be more polite.
Academy Entrance Arc
In one night, while her son was playing video games, Temari comes up to him and hits him on the head and tells him what he did now at the academy, Shikadai replied that he had nothing to do with it and Temari pulls his ear. At that time her husband arrives and Temari goes to pour him a glass of beer and tells him to do something about his son’s attitude; and she starts to listen to the advice that her husband gives to her son…but not content with that she leaves them both without dinner for taking it lightly.
When Shikadai decided to run away from class with Boruto and Mitsuki; besides leaving a fake note, Temari was so upset that she slapped her son’s face. For the Ninja Academy parent-child reunion, she went as her son’s representative.
Byakuya Gang Arc
While making dinner, she saw her husband arrive and was surprised that he was early, but he replied that he should have dinner as a family sometime and that brought a smile to her face as she continued to cook. When dinner was ready, she went to call her husband and son but when they ignored her, she got upset and took out her fan and sent them flying. After the robberies caused by the Byakuya Group, they started recruiting retired shinobi above Chūnin rank, and Temari was one of them. On her way to her mission, she met her son in the park, after a conversation about what they were going to do that afternoon they each retired. While walking through the village, she was warned by Izuno, that the Byakuya Group was robbing a store and went to the place and confronted them. One of the members acted as a decoy, and they led the chase to the park where Boruto helped him while his son made excuses, so he managed to escape. In the evening, Temari reprimanded Shikadai and he committed himself to his duty.
Versus Momoshiki Arc
When the Hokage was giving his speech of the three things a genin should have, he is seen walking Temari, who was going to meet with Ino Yamanaka and Sakura Uchiha. By the time her son passed the final round of the Chūnin Exams, she found herself in the stands supporting her son. When her son surrendered to Boruto, Temari started laughing as it reminded her of a scene from the past. With the arrival of Momoshiko and Kinshiki to Earth, they started to destroy the platform where the Chūnin Exams were being held, then to prevent the roof from falling to the ground Sakura uses her strength to shatter it and Temari uses her wind jutsu to blow the remains to another place; while helping the villagers to take them to the shelter.
Temari is a highly skilled kunoichi who specializes in long distance combat. She is also known for having great intelligence so she has also been considered as an excellent ninja strategist, so she is able to recognize the weak points of her opponents and formulate quick strategies in their favor, as she demonstrated by understanding the limitations of the Jutsu: Shadow Possession of Shikamaru and being able to keep the battle out of her reach during the Chunin Exams. Even Temari upon appearing possesses very keen senses capable of knowing when a Wind Element jutsu or another type of jutsu such as Naruto’s Tailed Beast Rasengan is being used. She is also good with traps as seen in the invasion of Konoha where she used wires and explosive seals to eliminate Sasuke, although the Uchiha was unharmed the traps were very powerful. In the anime, she showed to be able to fight at close range as she did when defending herself during her fight against Konohamaru Sarutobi.
Tessenjutsu and Nature Transformation
Temari bases her fighting style on the use of her Giant Fan in combination with her Wind Element which allows her to create large and powerful gusts of wind to either attack or defend. Her weapon appears to be heavy, so it is believed that Temari possesses great physical strength, it is also made of a material that allows her to block and / or deflect kunais and shuriken. This fan is characterized by having three purple circles inscribed on it, which Temari calls moons. As the fan opens to reveal each star in sequence, it increases the fan’s wind power greatly.
With the power at her fan’s maximum, she has demonstrated the ability to create whirlwinds that she can manipulate with her chakra, allowing her to attack from afar and alter the battlefield as well as deflect enemy attacks. Another use the weapon possesses can be intimidation, as Temari can glide over the Fan, as if it were flying, to cause such an effect.
In Part Two, she proves to have greater control over the winds her weapon creates, as she demonstrated by attacking multiple points of a samurai’s armor without harming the man inside or severely injuring the Third Raikage, known to have a very tough body. He was also able to counter, along with other tessenjutsu users, one of the Ten-Tails’ blows with the Element Wind: Cutting Wind during the Fourth Shinobi World War. At the time of the war, Temari claims to be the best Wind Element user in the Grand Shinobi Alliance.
She can use her fan as a means of summoning to bring forth a kind of weasel with a scythe, known as Kamatari. This weasel serves as an aid in battle, in particular by creating strong gusts of wind that sweep everything in their path and are even capable of felling an entire forest. In the anime, during the Fourth Shinobi World War, the weasel was also capable of tearing a person in half as it did Chūkaku.
