Naruto Shippuuden Extra-299
Team Kakashi, aka Team 7, is a team led by Hatake Kakashi and was formed after the members became genin. The members were selected in order to balance out their talents: Uzumaki Naruto, the worst student in his graduating class, would benefit from Haruno Sakura's intelligence and Uchiha Sasuke's proficiency with ninjutsu. Sakura would similarly benefit from her more battle-capable team-mates, whereas Sasuke would benefit from being forced to work with others.


Uzumaki Naruto, Uchiha Sasuke, and Haruno Sakura are organized into a team following their graduation from the Academy in order to balance out their talents. Naruto, the worst student in his class would benefit from Sakura's intelligence and Sasuke's proficiency with ninjutsu. Sakura on the other hand would benefit from her more battle-capable team-mates, and Sasuke would benefit from being forced to work with others. Thus Hatake Kakashi is selected to lead them in order to keep an eye on Naruto, and in the anime to help Sasuke cope with life after the his clan's massacre. As with all the previous genin teams he was put in charge of, Kakashi gives them a bell test in order to determine if they give the proper importance to teamwork. Unlike all previous genin teams, Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura pass the test.

Team 7's early missions are all D-rank, which Naruto believes they are over-qualified for. He is able to pressure the Third Hokage into giving them a C-rank mission: escorting Tazuna to the Land of Waves. After starting the mission they discover that Tazuna lied about the mission details and that the mission is actually an A-rank, far above the skills of genin. Despite this, Team 7 sticks with the mission and is able to see it through to its completion. When they return to Konoha they resume their menial, D-rank assignments, but from their performance, Kakashi believes they are qualified to participate in the Chunin Exams.

Despite strong showings from all three, particularly Naruto and Sasuke, none succeed in becoming chunin. In the anime they go on a few additional missions, but events during and after the Chunin Exams lead Sasuke to believe that his membership in the team is preventing him from achieving his goal of killing his brother, Uchiha Itachi. He defects from Konoha, joining forces with Orochimaru. Sakura tries to convince him not to but fails, Naruto is unable to stop him himself, and by the time Kakashi learns of what Sasuke has done, it was already too late. In the aftermath, Naruto leaves the village to train with Jiraiya and Sakura becomes the disciple of Tsunade, in effect disbanding Team 7.

In the anime, during the two and a half year time skip. Sakura was force to take the chunin exams by herself with Team Asuma. Due to the fact that Naruto was still training with Jiraiya, and that Sasuke was a missing nin. Due to this Naruto officially missed his chance to become a Chunin again. In the aftermath, Saskura completed the exam with the team she was assigned with for this event, and she became a Chunin just as when Naruto was returning to the village.

When Naruto returns to the village after his two and a half years training. He, Sakura, and Kakashi form a "Reborn Team 7" (新生第七班). Kakashi gives them another bell test, but this time the only objective is to demonstrate how their skills have improved. And in the end, Naruto and Sakura outsmarted Kakashi by using his Make Out Tatics Book weakness against him, by successfully taking the bells from him by showing Teamwork. As the team's official first mission they are sent to Sunagakure to rescue Gaara, the Fifth Kazekage from Akatsuki, for which task they are reorganized into the Kazekage Rescue Team upon arrival in Suna. During the course of the mission they learn of an opportunity to reunite with Sasuke, but Kakashi overexerts himself and needs extended bed-rest when they return to Konoha. Because they have only a limited amount of time to make to use of the intel, an Anbu codenamed Yamato is assigned as Kakashi's replacement. To provide additional manpower to the team, Sai from the Root Anbu is added to the team as Sasuke's replacement.

Although the team is successful in infiltrating one of Orochimaru's hideouts and meeting with Sasuke, his growth over the last two years is more than any of them can compete with and they can do nothing but let him escape. From this mission however, Sai becomes a trusted and lasting member of the team and Yamato takes on a recurring role as leader and advisor to Team 7's members, especially as Kakashi increasingly commits himself to other tasks. When a Kakashi led Team 10 struggles in another confrontation with Akatsuki, Yamato leads Team 7 in providing backup. Shortly afterwards, when they come up with a plan to find Sasuke by first finding Itachi, a Yamato-led Team 7 combines with a Kakashi-led Team 8 into the Eight Man Squad.

The Eight Man Squad is unsuccessful in stopping Sasuke from falling into the clutches of Akatsuki. While following Pain's Invasion, news of Sasuke's criminal activity with Akatsuki reaches Konoha, Naruto tries to secure a pardon for him from the Five Kage. The Kage refuse and meanwhile, Sasuke's former classmates decide that they should be the ones to personally kill him for what he's done and to prevent the chaos his actions could bring. Sakura accepts the responsibility, yet plotted on doing it on her own, but ultimately can't bring herself to do so. Kakashi, after learning of her plans from Sai's ink clone, offers to do it himself as Sasuke's former teacher. Naruto intervenes before anybody is able to kill anyone else, in the process reuniting all of Team 7's original members for the first time in two years. Naruto and Sasuke briefly clash, but both accept they are too evenly matched and postpone a final resolution between them for another time.

However, Sasuke's final encounter with Itachi caused him to question his resolve. After reviving Orochimaru and meeting with a reincarnated Senju Hashirama and learning what it means to be a shinobi, Sasuke chooses to protect Konoha like his brother had as he rejoins his former team to aid in the fight against Uchiha Madara, Obito, and the Ten-Tails. The four original members of Team 7 were the only living humans to have escaped the light of Infinite Tsukuyomi, and so in turn became mankind's last hope. Ultimately after many obstacles and with help from Obito, even from beyond the grave, Team Kakashi managed to outsmart and seal Kaguya in a new moon. Thus saving the world and ending the war. After this however, Sasuke again left the team to realize his plans of revolution and domination, forcing Naruto to face him one last time.

After an intense battle, both Naruto and Sasuke lost their own respective dominant arms, Sasuke losing his left and Naruto losing his own right arm, and the blood from their amputated arms made a "seal of reconciliation". Through Sasuke's narrow defeat and relinquishing his inner darkness, the rift between the three, much to Kakashi's happiness, was lifted and back on good terms, even laughing together after so many years and trials.

Afterward, with Kakashi as the Sixth Hokage, Sasuke's involvement in dispelling the Infinite Tsukuyomi and as a favor to Naruto, the hero of the Fourth Shinobi War, Sasuke's crimes was pardoned. Though he sought to travel the world for redemption, but not before affectionately vowing to Sakura that he would return and receiving his old forehead protector from Naruto. While Kakashi had his Hokage duties to handle, including with Sasuke traveling the world. Naruto, Sai and Sakura become busy with their own personal matters, effectively dissolving Team 7 on good terms.

Years after the Fourth Shinobi War, Naruto married Hyuga Hinata while having with her a son name Uzumaki Boruto and a daughter name Uzumaki Himawari. Naruto eventually succeeds Kakashi as the Seventh Hokage. While Sasuke and Sakura get marry as well and start a family together by having a daughter named Uchiha Sarada. Sai also gets marry to Yamanaka Ino and they have a son name Yamanaka Inojin. However, Sasuke went on a mission to look for Kaguya's descendants which was only a mission that Naruto, Sakura and the other current Kage have known about. This mission have kept Sasuke away from his family for years.
