The Flirty Kunoichi, Ino Yamanaka

Greeting Shinobies!

You all must have been familiar with the beautiful Kunoichi this one, one of the members of the Yamanaka clan. Yes, she is Ino Yamanaka. This time, Anime Ninja also had a bit of her story, Let’s read the full story below.

Ino Yamanaka (山中いの, Yamanaka Ino) is a member of Konohagakure’s Yamanaka clan. She and other members of Team Asuma are their generation’s Ino–Shika–Chō trio.

Ino is the only child of Inoichi Yamanaka and quite popular as a student  during her time in the Academy. From a young age, Ino has been confident, friendly, bold, and outspoken, sometimes lashing out at others if their personal habits bother her, especially at Chouji’s eating habit. She is generally more motivated than her team-mates and tends to take charge of them. She is also prideful in her appearance and often tries to lose weight by dieting in the hopes that it will make her more attractive to boys; she even jokingly suggests that Chōji should do the same to attract girls. She also quite knowledgeable about different types and meanings of flowers, making analogies to them when talking.


During her time as Ninja Academy student, she met Sakura Haruno, who often teased by other kids due to her large forehead. Ino often defend Sakura from the bullies and encouraged her to embrace her forehead rather than trying to hide it, later they end up becoming good friends with each other.


Over the following years, Ino’s guidance and friendship helped Sakura become more confident and develop into her own person. However, when Sakura found out that they had a crush on the same person, Sasuke Uchiha, Sakura decide to end their friendship so that they could compete for Sasuke’s love, thus beginning a bitter rivalry between them.fueled by competition of Sasuke’s affections, ninjutsu and even trading insults, with Ino as “Ino-pig” (いのぶた, Ino-buta) and Sakura as “Forehead Girl” (デコリーン, Dekorīn).


Ino has fair skin, blue eyes (sometimes seen as green in the manga), and long pale-blonde hair worn in a ponytail, with bangs framing the right side of her face.


As a member Yamanaka Clan, Ino also proficient in using Shintenshin no Jutsu (心転身の術, Mind Body Switch Technique). which allows her to briefly possess a target and take control of their actions. She can also use this technique on animals for reconnaissance and espionage, as it was originally intended. Ino’s body, however, is left vulnerable to attack while the technique is active, and therefore it is not suited for battle. She can also be forced out of the body if the opponent’s will is strong enough.

In Anime Ninja, Ino will join you after you recruit her at the Tavern. To recruit her to your team you will require 50 Blue Souls.  She is one of earliest ‘Support’ ninja you can get. Coincidentally, both Ino and Sakura are skilled in healing. If you’re having difficulty to pass stages due to lack of health then you might want to get Ino for more survivability.
