Sakura and Hinata were in the Ninja Academy together. When Hinata was fighting Neji during the Chunin Exams, Sakura was worried about her after she was heavily injured. She eventually ran down into the arena along with Naruto and Lee to make sure that she was okay. Sakura also lost her fight but both went to watch Naruto in the third round.
Over two years later, Sakura and Hinata were shown to work well together on the battlefield. During the attack on their village, Sakura healed Hinata after she nearly died for her and realized that she loved Naruto. Over two years later, Sakura gave her seat to Hinata so that she could sit with Naruto and tried to convince him to walk her home. She called Naruto an idiot when he refused.
SakuHina has a decent amount of popularity in the Naruto fandom. Many fans consider them to be love rivals because of the fact that Naruto was in the middle of a love triangle between them and they are often compared because of this. However, Sakura and Hinata were never enemies nor did they show bitterness about Naruto.
On AO3, SakuHina is the tenth most written relationship for Sakura and the fourth most written for Hinata. It is also the forty-fifth most written relationship in the Naruto tag.
- Sakura eventually became supportive of a relationship between Naruto and Hinata and tried to help them get together, which she succeeded at.
