Team Three was formed when the Three-Tails appeared. Their mission was to seal the Three-Tails using the Four-Corner Sealing Barrier technique. To do so, all the members of the team needed to have precise chakra control.
Main article: Shizune Due to her really strong skill in medical ninjutsu, Shizune can perform tricky techniques using precise chakra control. She was the leader of the team.
Main article: Sakura Haruno Sakura's chakra control is probably the most advanced in the team, as she can perform complex medical ninjutsu which comes to great service in the sealing of the Three-Tails.
Main article: Hinata Hyūga Though not trained in the precise chakra control required in medical techniques, her inheritance from being part of the Hyūga clan is quite fortunate and her chakra control is up to par with that of a medical ninja.
Main article: Ino Yamanaka Ino is another member of the team that can perform advanced medical ninjutsu, which requires a lot of controlled chakra, though her control was not at the level of that of Sakura and Shizune as yet.
Main article: Katsuyu A replica of Katsuyu, is sent to aid Team Three, along with the two other teams. She attaches herself to every member of the three teams and supplies them with extra chakra so they can finish sealing the Three-Tails and fend off Guren and Orochimaru's subordinates.
