Naruto - Battle Packs - Squad 10 Action Figure Multi-Pack

From manga and anime Naruto, this is figure of Ino Yamanaka, Choji Akimichi and Shikamaru Nara. Ino Yamanaka (山中 いの Yamanaka Ino) is a childhood friend of Sakura Haruno. When Sakura was picked on as a result of her lack of self-confidence, Ino stuck up for her and helped her develop her own identity. As Sakura’s confidence in herself grew she became aware that Ino liked the same boy as she did: Sasuke Uchiha. Sakura soon ended their friendship so that the two could properly compete for Sasuke’s affection, beginning a bitter rivalry between them. The two maintain this rivalry until the end of their match in the Chunin Exams, after which they begin to rekindle their friendship. Nevertheless, the two maintain a competitive relationship and constantly attempt to outdo the other. During their feud Ino became superficial, thinking highly of her looks and having no problem telling people what she thinks. Although she constantly faults both of her teammates (Choji for being overweight and Shikamaru for his laziness), she actually cares deeply for their well-beings and maintains a strong bond with them.

Choji Akimichi (秋道 チョウジ Akimichi Chōji) is a long-time friend of Shikamaru Nara. When his peers would refuse to play with Choji because of his size, Shikamaru would stick up for him and spend time with him instead of the others. Because of Shikamaru’s willingness to overlook Choji’s deficiencies and appreciate his true strength, Choji came to view Shikamaru as his best friend who he would do anything for. Choji is characterized by his love for food, an annoyance for his teammates as satiating himself often comes before other necessities such as stealth and teamwork. Despite his eating habits Choji is very sensitive about his size and becomes highly agitated when somebody calls him “fat“. Once called “fat,” Choji’s resolve to fight is elevated to new levels and he becomes much more hostile to his opponents. Though he looks more muscular than obese in Part II, he is still apparently sensitive about his size, and others make it a point to avoid using the word “fat” around him.

Shikamaru Nara (奈良 シカマル Nara Shikamaru) is an extremely unenthusiastic person, and as such lives his life avoiding work. This is partly due to seeking paths of least resistance, as he often chooses to do things he would otherwise not do if people nag him enough. His plans on life reflect this aspect of his personality, as he plans to be an average ninja making an average salary, and retire once his children become independent. In his free time he typically takes naps, watches clouds, and plays strategy games such as Shogi and Go. When put into a situation where he potentially needs to put effort into something, he attempts to try to find a way to avoid it such as forfeiting a battle or by pretending to be preoccupied with something else. In the instances where he can’t avoid these situations, Shikamaru tends to remark “how troublesome” (めんどくさい mendokusai, English TV “what a drag” or “such a pain”). He is fully aware of this side of his personality, even dubbing himself “the number one at running away.”
