Powerful formation based on the hiden ninjutus of the Yamanaka, Nara, and Akimichi clans. Each generation of this clans has one of this groups made up by one member of each clan. For sixteen generations, the InoShikaChō was only integrated by male shinobis, being Ino the first kunoichi in sixteen generations to be part of the group.

The group had designed, as a result of their long history of working together, a solid formation composed of five variations. Each of these variations follows the pattern Ino-Shika-Chō, being the Yamanaka (or ‘Ino’) member the first to make their move, followed by the Nara (or ‘Shika’) member and finishing with the Akimichi member (or ‘Chō’).

The name is also a reference to a card combination in the Hanafuda card game, Koi-Koi; Inoshikachō uses the Boar/Pig (Ino), the Deer (Shika), and the Butterfly (Chō).
Ino Yamanaka, Shikamaru Nara and Chouji Akimichi are the 16th generation of the InoShikaChō.
