Tenten Vs. Temari is Chapter 15 of the manga.
After Team Guy completes a mission, Tenten insists that they stop at a nearby teashop, despite Lee protesting that he had to train to catch up to his rivals. Entering the shop, they are shocked to see Gaara, Baki, and Kankuro. Despite the fact that Lee tells Tenten that he didn't need to challenge the young Kazekage to another battle, he prepares to use the Front Lotus on Gaara. Attempting to stop Lee, Tenten draws her weapons, though her weapons and Lee are buffeted away by a great gust of wind as Temari appears, telling the young shinobi not to do weird things to the Kazekage. Chastising Tenten's weapon usage once again, the two kunoichi face off against each other. Apologising to her teammates, Tenten recalls the time she fought Temari during the Chūnin Exams and lost. Consoled by Lee, who takes out a pair of green overalls and tells her that if she wore them, she'd be able to defeat Temari, Tenten uses her weapons to turn it into a tank-top. Thinking of other methods Tenten could beat Temari, Lee realises that Tenten would also lose in terms of bust size, before challenging Gaara to a test of cup size as well only to be chastised by Temari. Cautioning Tenten to stop Lee before he got fired up again, Neji is shocked when Tenten challenges Temari to a battle. A team battle is eventually decided upon and the six ninja face off against one another. Comically the battle wages on until it comes down to a battle of pictures with Temari on the defensive after being attacked by numerous pictures of herself with Shikamaru, since Lee believes there is something going on between the two. They are eventually crushed by Gaara. Annoyed, Temari summons Kamatari via the Summoning: Quick Beheading Dance technique who only sets up shop with Lee cutting vegetables. Using the opportunity, Tenten summons the Jidanda. As everyone uses their different defensive techniques to take cover, Lee who insists he had erected a barrier gets caught between Tenten and Temari's attack. With the battle seemingly over and Temari, the victor, Tenten opens her blouse to reveal the green blouse underneath which had seals written on it. Using the Manipulated Tools: Breast Hammer, Temari is knocked out and Tenten is named the victor. Though the battle ended in a tie, Temari conceded loss and acknowledged Tenten. Back in Konoha, news of the battle spread far and wide, but to Tenten's dismay, she gained the moniker "The Breast Hammer".
