KUNOICHI 7, official name: KUNOICHI2007秋 (literally: KUNOICHI 2007 Fall) was the Seventh Kunoichi held. During this tournament, temperatures approached 100 degrees Fahrenheit, "The mid-summer sun beats down on Midoriyama like an enemy!" "A cool South Seas breeze has blown in to combat the heat of the day." This is the first tournament after Miyake Ayako's third consecutive kanzenseiha.

For this tournament, the Haso Tobi was modified with the addition of a yellow post to land on, and a new obstacle, the Danchigaibou, was added. The new Danchigaibou proved to be extremely dangerous, as it wiped out a fair share of competitors on the day, including Mori Yoko (due to the pressure of needing to reach the Shouchu in time, competitors had to take it at speed, and many overbalanced and fell off), while several others failed the newly modified Haso Tobi, including Mizuno Yuko. Eventually, only 4 competitors cleared the First Stage, including three time Kunoichi champion Miyake Ayako, former finalists Komiya Rie and Tanaka Maho, and Nishimura Chie, the first women to clear the First Stage of SASUKE. In stage 2, the Tsuri Hashigo took out Komiya, while Nishimura timed out after struggling with the swinging beams, and Miyake shocked everyone by failing the swinging beams, marking the first time she ever failed the course. Only Tanaka was able to reach Stage 3, but she ended up failing Domino Hill, which she had beaten in the previous tournament, leaving the Mashou Heki and the Final Stage untouched since KUNOICHI 2.
