Haruno Sakura is a young passionate girl with a desire to become a powerful woman shinobi. She's in love with Uchiha Sasuke and used to be best friends with Yamanaka Ino until they both discovered their feelings for the Uchiha, which led them to enemity.
Sakura is strong, though dependant on her teammates in Team 7 at first, hot-headed (she possesses an 'Inner Sakura' that shouts and punches at whatever angers her), very intelligent, has a huge memory, is studious and kind. At some point, she decides it has been enough and grows even more mature and independent, not wanting to always need Sasuke and Naruto's help but to also be able to provide them with her skills.
She refuses affections from both Naruto and Rock Lee as she is too focused on Sasuke, whom she wants to impress.
Sakura has long pink hair for half of season 1, then it's middle length. She also wears a pink and red dress with black shorts, and in Shippuden it's a red sleeveless shirt, black gloves, pale pink skirt, black shorts and boots along with bandages around her right thigh and two pink elbow protectors. Her band rests on her head.
She used to be drawn more childishly and lively, although this changed a bit in Shippuden where she appears more like a natural-looking serious, young woman.
