As far as Naruto is concerned, when the original series came to a close, most of the characters from the series ended up with someone, at least those who were kids when the series began. Most of them married and had families, while others became couples. Of course, there are a lot of notable names here (Naruto and Hinata, Sasuke and Sakura, etc.), but what happened with the lesser-known characters? Tenten, for example? In this article, we will present Tenten’s story to you and reveal what happened to the girl in Naruto, i.e., whether she married someone or not!
Tenten did not marry or end up with someone
Tenten completed the Ninja Academy at the age of twelve and received the rank of Genin. She is then assigned to Team 9 along with Rock Lee and Neji Hyuuga. The team leader is Might Guy, a well-known jonin from Konohagakure.
Guy’s hot-tempered personality and quick devotion to youthful energy define the team. Tenten and her teammates were trained by Guy for a year longer than the others because he believed they were not ready. After he finds them strong enough, he registers them for the Chunin selection exam, where they immediately establish themselves as one of their favorite teams.
When the famous Tsunade – Tenten’s great role model – returned to Konohagakure to take up her new position as Godaime Hokage, Tenten rushed to Neji. She informed him of the legendary kunoichi’s arrival and asked him if he would like to come with her to see her. However, Neji dismissed this. Whether Tenten went to Tsunade afterward or not is unknown. After Sunagakure sends Konoha a call for help, Tenten and her team are dispatched to assist Team Kakashi in rescuing the kidnapped Kazekage Gaara. Later, they assisted their allies after Pain attacked the village.
Tenten is assigned to the first division of the combined shinobi forces in the Fourth Shinobi World War, specializing in medium-range combat. She is assigned to General Darui. When the confrontation with the Zetsus and the Edo Tensei Awakened occurs, Tenten loudly states that she would not let anyone through. She then opened two small scrolls and summoned several weapons, flying towards the Zetsu army.
With this, Tenten defeats several Zetsus, even considering that she was the first to attack. This causes the others to start throwing weapons at the Zetsus, and they defeat several of them. When Calm returns to the world, she will probably fulfill a big dream and open a shop for ninja weapons. However, 13 years after the end of the war, things are so peaceful that she can’t get rid of her goods.
And this is Tenten’s story in short. She was certainly an important supporting character, and her overall contribution to the story might not have been enormous, but it was nevertheless significant, as she has participated in several important missions, as well as the Fourth Shinobi World War, which demonstrated once again just how skilled she actually is. But, while we have seen her fight and while her story did become relevant over the course of the series, her private life was somewhat disregarded.
We know that the epilogue and Boruto revealed that a lot of the characters ended up with someone later on in the series; most of them got married, but some are simply couples and are happy together. This can be said about the main characters but also about the majority of secondary characters we’ve seen in the series, so there is no reason to think that Tenten would be excluded here because she is not a main character. So, what happened to her in the end? Well… not much.
Namely, Tenten is one of a very small number of characters in the series who was not paired with anyone; Shino is the second example. This is notable because Tenten was relevant to the story, yet Kishimoto never gave her a partner in the series, so she is, as far as we can tell, single. We know that she is not married, but based on what we know, she also doesn’t have a partner in Boruto. And that is what we can tell you about her.
