At first, I didn't really like Temari. She seemed...well, average. Wallpaper. She had that "Oh, Sasuke's cute" moment just like every other girl. So I expected her to be like every other girl-- average in abilities, not too nice, not too mean, normal intelligence, yara yara yara.
The final panel of her battle with TenTen blew all my vorige expectations of her out of my mind. I wasn't sure whether to call it a 'battle' of a 'murder'. In short, this battle was what garnered my attention to Temari.
