Lee admits that she is correct and offers to train with her again, showing his eccentric technique once more, disturbing Tenten, who immediately refused.

When Team Guy trains, he attempts to use a Wind Release technique, though Tenten remarks that it was extremely weak. When Tenten questions Lee on why he suddenly tried to use ninjutsu, he replies that Guy will never acknowledge him if he cannot use ninjutsu. Since they have a mission after training, he explains that he wouldn't be able to face Guy. He watches Naruto Uzumaki show Konohamaru Sarutobi his Sexy Jutsu, which fills Lee with motivation, though Tenten believes it is excitement.

Tenten then sees that the technique was a fake and that Lee was only running extremely quickly, the afterimages serves as "clones." Then, when Lee attempts to use the Sexy Technique, Tenten is seen shocked at his choice. He quickly changes into a bathing suit and dashes around leaving several afterimages, thus making a "Harem Technique" to the bandits and Tenten's disgust.
When Guy asked Lee how he learned so much, Tenten explained the situation. Guy punched Lee and told him that he had not heard the entire conversation. Guy then explained that he was disgusted with what the shinobi where saying and beat them up. He then told Lee his goal was to make Lee a truly splendid ninja. Lee and Guy then finished off the bandits using another unorthodox technique that Tenten could not believe they practiced. After Guy complimented Lee's Sexy Jutsu, Tenten opposed the statement saying it was the worst. When both Guy and Lee did the Jutsu together, Tenten throws multiple weapons at them.
In chapter two, Lee shows Tenten and Neji the Make Out Tactics book, which Tenten identifies as the book that Kakashi always reads. As Lee explains that he has learned techniques to pick up girls to make Sakura, who had previously denied him, fall in love with him, Tenten asks him if he really will understand the book. Later, as Lee puts his plan to action, Tenten witnesses his first attempt of love, where he uses "tender love," but actually punches Sakura, much to Tenten's shock. As all Lee's attempts fail, Tenten tries to comfort him and even tries to offer him advice, but to no avail.
After Lee is, once again, punched by Sakura after he saved her from enemies, he searches for Tenten for comfort. He explains to her that it didn't go so well in the end and sadly said that he was "uncool" after all. Tenten disagreed, and told Lee that she thought Lee cool enough and he succeeded in protecting his friend, so it was good enough. Lee was deeply touched by her words and burst into tears, scaring Tenten. He then picks a the Make-Out Tactics book that he found once more; Tenten realizing he hasn't learned a thing.

This makes Tenten flashback to the moments when she and Lee trained together, making her think to herself that she grew stronger because of that.
In chapter 22, while training with Lee, Tenten comes across an unfamiliar scroll. She opens it, and immediatly falls in love with Lee. After seeing Lee, Tenten becomes flustered and runs away. It is revealed that the scroll is a forbidden scroll that makes the reader of the scroll automatically fall in love with the first person they lay eyes on. While Lee talks to Naruto, Sakura and Neji, he mentions Tenten's strange behavior. Lee comes across Tenten and performs his Sexy Technique.

However, she witnesses Lee trying to make moves and Sakura and becomes heartbroken and runs away. Lee chases after her, but Tenten believes that she means nothing to him. While trying to grab the scroll, Lee accidentaly sends it flying through the air. He tells Tenten that they can retrieve it by using the combination move they had perfected earlier. Tenten agrees, but the scroll is broken, thus dissolving its effects. Tenten becomes very embarrassed at her actions and tries to apologize. Lee tells her that there is no need and tells her that he thinks highly of her and sees her as a precious comrade.

All of these attributes can be applied to Rock Lee.
In episode 3b: Tenten's Must-Win Battle, Tenten is upset that Neji and Lee don't act accordingly around her or even protect her in battle. Lee then comes up with the idea for Neji and himself to dress suave and wait on Tenten hand and foot. At first Teten is impressed, but Neji and Lee become overbearing and she gets upset. Lee then comes up with the idea to turn Tenten into an old man to which Neji agrees with. Tenten seems to like the results at first but then immediately rages and gets fed up with Neji and Lee. Tenten decides to dress and act like a boy and says that it's pointless to try to get Lee and Neji for not treating her like a woman. Before Tenten leaves, Lee says this, "I really don't understand. I've always depended on you because I know how strong you are. But you say I should be protecting you?" Tenten seems surprised by Lee's words but she shrugs them off and leaves. Tenten then encounters some bandits and they tie her up in chains. She starts to lose hope until she hears Lee and Neji coming to help. Lee says that her outfit is pointless. Tenten seems touched by Lee's actions and she thinks to herself how she should have been grateful for Lee's faith in her. That thought process is interrupted by Lee throwing a pair of boy's underwear on her head. The bandits laugh at the sight causing Tenten to escape from the chains and defeat the bandits in a blind rage. Afterwards Tenten returns to her old outfit and saying that acting all gentleman-like isn't like Neji and Lee and she just has to accept the way things are. Lee agrees by saying that he prefers the real Tenten anyway.
