Team Guy is a team led by Might Guy and was formed a year before the other main Konoha teams of the series. They specialise in close-quarters combat with all of its members using some sort of physical attacks. Guy waited a year before entering them in the Chūnin Exams, though none of his apprentices was promoted at that time.
Later, between the events of Parts I and II, Lee and Tenten became chūnin while Neji Hyūga surpassed his team-mates and rose to the ranks of jōnin. Despite becoming more busy, Neji still goes on missions with his team. Along with the other members of the Konoha 11, Team Guy had decided to kill Sasuke Uchiha in order to prevent war between Konoha and Kumogakure, but were persuaded by Naruto Uzumaki that he would deal with Sasuke alone. During the events of the Fourth Shinobi World War, Neji was among those killed in the line of duty with only three members of Team Guy remaining.
- Rank: D-rank
In the aftermath of the Invasion of Konoha, with Naruto substituting for a still recuperating Rock Lee, Tenten is placed in charge of a mission at the Konoha Weapons Research Lab to obtain a 1000 shuriken and a 1000 kunai.
- Rank: A-rank (S-rank in the anime)
- Status: Success
At the start of Part II, Team Guy is sent to help aid Team Kakashi with saving Gaara from the Akatsuki. To gain entrance into the Akatsuki lair, Team Guy was forced to fight copies of themselves. In the end, they succeeded and Gaara was saved.
- Team Guy is notable for having a more Chinese theme to them: Might Guy and Rock Lee utilising martial arts with the latter's character greatly resembles Bruce Lee, Neji's Gentle Fist fighting style based from baguazhang, and Tenten's attire and fighting style having a Chinese theme.
- Neji is the first of the team to die.
