NaruTen is a het ship between Naruto Uzumaki and Tenten in the Naruto fandom.


Naruto and Tenten were a year apart in age so they did not meet until they were both taking the Chunin Exams. During the third round, Naruto fought against her teammate Neji and won despite the fact that nobody expected him to win. Tenten began to show him some respect afterwards. When Naruto left to train for over two years, Tenten was surprised to see him all grown up when her team joined his on a mission. The two did not interact a lot but both fought in the Fourth Shinobi World War and Naruto shared some of Kurama's chakra with her along with everybody else.


NaruTen is not a very popular pairing in the Naruto fandom. However, it still has its fans. It is mostly considered to be a crack ship because Naruto and Tenten have not been shown to be interacting that much. Some feel that Naruto has a lot of similarities to Tenten's teammate Rock Lee which makes them feel that they might get along well. NaruTen rivals the more popular Naruto and Tenten pairings such as NaruHina, NaruSaku, LeeTen and NejiTen.
