In Part II, Ino's outfit is slightly more revealing as she discards her forehead protector and bandages while exposing her midriff and wears mesh armour on her thighs, elbows and knees.
Despite hoping to be on the same team as Sasuke Uchiha, she is devastated that not only Sakura becomes Sasuke's teammate along with Naruto Uzumaki, but she herself is added to Asuma Sarutobi's Team 10 with Shikamaru Nara and Chōji Akimichi.
Ino immediately lays ground rules for her new teammates to follow.
However, when Sakura found out that they had a crush on the same boy, Sasuke Uchiha, Sakura approached Ino, telling her of her liking towards Sasuke.
Ino took it to end their friendship, starting their dislike towards each other in the beginning of the series.
Ino is the only child of Inoichi Yamanaka and was a popular student during her time in the Academy.
