Hinata's main motivation is Naruto Uzumaki, with whom she has been fascinated since meeting him. He initially gained her attention because of his outspoken kindness, and then kept her attention because of similarities that Hinata perceived to herself: Naruto had a painful childhood without the love of parents, a fate worse than the mere difficulty she had with her own father, and he craves the attention and acknowledegment of anybody, just as Hinata wants to please her father.<ref>Chapter 76, page 11</ref> But whereas Hinata lost faith in herself and let others tell her she couldn't succeed, Naruto always believes in himself and knows that he can accomplish any given task if he tries hard enough. She admires him deeply for this courage and over time falls in love with him, which manifests as increased shyness and speechlessness when around him. Although most people understand the reason for Hinata's behaviour around Naruto, Naruto himself thinks it's just Hinata's normal, if "weird", personality.

Hinata strives to improve herself in order to benefit her team and to prove herself to her father, but mostly to gain the attention and worthiness of Naruto. She emulates him to this purpose, adopting his [[nindō]] of never giving up as the means by which she will change herself. To that end, she stops running from confrontation, instead doing all that she can to face it. If she fails, she gets up again and trains herself to not fail a second time. Hinata initially can only manage to practice this nindō when Naruto is nearby, but even then it is rewarding: she is able to speak her mind to him, for which he decides his view of her as "weird" was incorrect. By the end of Part I, she even displays it when Naruto is not around, for which reason her father's and the Hyūga clan's faith in her is restored and strengthened.<ref name="c238">Chapter 238, pages 8-9</ref>

During ''[[The Last: Naruto the Movie]]'', Naruto finally recognises the love that Hinata has always had for him; realising that she alone has never lost faith in him and that she has always been there for him, he reciprocates. They marry (after only a few months of dating according to ''[[Sakura Hiden]]'') and eventually have two children, [[Boruto]] and [[Himawari]]. When Naruto becomes [[Hokage]], Hinata remains supportive of him and his increased responsibilities and tries to keep Boruto and Himawari happy despite his frequent absences, even though she herself also yearned for her husband to be at home. As a mother, she wishes to be protective of her children, but also realises that they, particularly Boruto, take after Naruto and that she must have faith in them to do things themselves.<ref>''Boruto: Naruto the Movie''</ref>

She has dark blue hair that she keeps in a [[wikipedia:hime|hime]]-cut of different lengths: in Part I, her hair is short, kept just above her forehead with chin-length strands framing her face; in Part II, her hair reaches her lower back and the framing strands grow to shoulder-length; in ''The Last: Naruto the Movie'', her hair extends beyond her hips; by adulthood her hair is cut back, usually between Part I and Part II lengths, but it is occasionally seen to be long enough to tie in a ponytail.<ref name="c700"/> Hinata develops large breasts in Part II, which [[omake]] sometimes make reference to; in ''[[Road to Naruto the Movie]]'', [[Sakura Haruno]] is jealous that Hinata's breasts float on their own in the bath.

In Part I, Hinata usually wears a cream-coloured hooded-jacket with a fire symbol on the upper sleeves and fur around the cuffs and hem. Along with this she wears navy blue pants and keeps her [[forehead protector]] around her neck. In Part II, she dons a loose fitting, lavender and cream hooded-jacket with lavender cuffs over mesh armour. She also wears navy blue pants, black, low-heeled sandals, and changes the cloth of her forehead protector from blue to black. Hinata switches to the standard Konoha infantry [[flak jacket]] and assorted clothing during the Fourth Shinobi World War, though she does not seem to use a forehead protector while wearing it.

In ''The Last: Naruto the Movie'', Hinata's mission attire is a light lavender, sleeveless kimono-style blouse with vertical lines, tied with a dark purple obi around her waist. She wears a pair of short dark navy shorts with thigh-high stockings and has changed her regular ninja sandals to black high-heeled boots. She continues to not wear her forehead protector. Her outfits become more varied after that, changing to match the occasion or simply being more casual than her prior garb. During ''[[Boruto: Naruto the Movie]]'', she consistently wears a light purple short-sleeved jacket with a white shirt underneath, light brown shorts, and a pair of purple open-toed boots.

As a consequence of her non-confrontational personality, Hinata did not display any particular aptitude as a shinobi during her time in the [[Academy]], for which reason many in the [[Hyūga clan]] did not expect much from her. After graduating from the Academy, she focuses on getting stronger; although she never achieves the same sort of feats as some of her peers, Hinata is consistently complimented by her fellow members of [[Team 8]] and even some Hyūga for her improving abilities and her strengthening character. Despite her acknowledged lack of special talent, Hinata is nevertheless willing to face threats for the sake of others: she fights one of the [[Six Paths of Pain]] in order to protect [[Naruto Uzumaki]],<ref name="c437"/> which Naruto says proves she's strong;<ref>Chapter 559, page 6</ref> during the [[Fourth Shinobi World War]], Hinata works well with her cousin, [[Neji Hyūga]], protecting him during the fighting just as effectively as he protects her;<ref name="c526">Chapter 526, pages 10-12</ref> years later, during ''[[Boruto: Naruto the Movie]]'', she faces [[Kinshiki]] and [[Momoshiki Ōtsutsuki]] by herself in an attempt to rescue Naruto.

Hinata's gentle personality reflected her performance in the Academy; her acknowledged lack of special talent has caused many in the [[Hyūga clan]] to not expect much from her. After her graduation, she focuses on getting stronger; as she puts more effort in her training, Hinata receives consistent praise from her team-mates and even some Hyūga for her improving abilities. With her strengthening character, Hinata becomes more willing to face threats for the sake of others: during [[Pain's Assault]], she fights the [[Deva Path]] in order to protect [[Naruto Uzumaki]],<ref name="c437"/> which Naruto says proves she's strong;<ref>Chapter 559, page 6</ref> during the [[Fourth Shinobi World War]], Hinata works well with her cousin, [[Neji Hyūga]], protecting him just as effectively as he protects her;<ref name="c526">Chapter 526, pages 10-12</ref> years later in ''[[Boruto: Naruto the Movie]]'', she faces [[Kinshiki]] and [[Momoshiki Ōtsutsuki]] alone in an attempt to rescue Naruto.
   
Hinata doesn't usually use standard ninjutsu, but her [[nature transformation]]s include [[Fire]] and [[Lightning Release]].<ref name="databook4" /> In the anime, she is shown using the [[Mystical Palm Technique]] to heal wounded.<ref>''Naruto: Shippūden'' episode 293</ref>

In the anime, Hinata begins training to improve her chakra control during Part I; one of the earliest products of this training is her ability to make [[Water Needle]]s by forming her chakra around nearby water sources, making it into a projectile. By Part II of the anime, Hinata's control has advanced enough to match a [[medical-nin]]'s, for which reason she is assigned to help perform the [[Four-Corner Sealing Barrier]].

Despite how recently they graduated from the Academy, Kurenai enters Team 8 in the [[Chūnin Exams]] being held in [[Konoha]]; Hinata agrees to participate because she wants to change herself. For the exams' first stage, Hinata is seated next to Naruto as they take a written test. The objective in the first stage is to cheat off of other examinee's paper without getting caught, but Naruto doesn't realise this and agonises about potentially failing. Seeing this, Hinata offers to let him copy off of her paper. He suspects she's trying to trick him, but she assures him that she only wants to be helpful. Although he considers taking her up on her offer, Naruto ultimately declines, fearing that he'll get her disqualified if they're caught and claiming that, besides, he isn't the type to cheat.

Although Naruto is given the opportunity to forfeit, he refuses to do so, and for his determination he passes the first stage along with Hinata and their teams. For the second stage, participants enter the [[Forest of Death]] with the objective of obtaining a set of two scrolls, one of which they are given at the start. Team 8 manages to collect their second scroll right after the second stage has started, and they head for the center of the forest where they're supposed to turn in the scrolls. Along the way, Kiba's partner, [[Akamaru]], senses the [[Three Sand Siblings]]' fight with [[Team Shigure]]. Team 8 watches the fight from the cover of some nearby bushes and is horrified when [[Gaara]] mercilessly kills all of Team Shigure. After they're certain Gaara won't kill them too, they proceed to the center of the forest.

After passing the second stage, the remaining participants take part in one-on-one preliminary matches. During Naruto's fight with Kiba, Hinata's loyalties are torn; she wants to cheer for Naruto, but fears that would be rude to Kiba. When Naruto wins the fight, Hinata gives both him and Kiba some of the [[Hyūga Clan Secret Ointment]] so that their wounds will heal faster. As he's being taken away to rest, Kiba pleads for Hinata to forfeit if she's matched against Gaara or her cousin, [[Neji Hyūga]]. She is indeed matched against Neji, a member of a Hyūga clan branch house who hates all members of the main house. Neji, like Kiba, tries to convince Hinata to forfeit, telling her that she's too meek and insecure to be a ninja. She begins to offer arguments in her defence, but Neji persists, claiming that she is fated to be a failure, a fact that he believes she's aware of due to her frightened reaction to what he says.

Because Naruto has faith in her, Hinata refuses to forfeit and prepares to fight; Neji is surprised by the new confidence in her. Hinata and Neji exchange [[Gentle Fist]]-blows, but only Neji's are effective, which he reveals to be because he sealed her [[tenketsu]] at the start of their fight. Although her attacks are ineffective against him, Hinata continues fighting, in the process enduring mounting internal trauma from Neji's counterattacks. Neji repeatedly tells her to forfeit, but Hinata refuses, unwilling to back down both as a matter of principle and because Naruto continues to cheer for her.

Neji directly attacks Hinata's heart, leading all but Naruto to believe she's been defeated. When [[Hayate Gekkō]] is about to declare Neji the winner, Naruto stops him and motions to Hinata struggling to her feet. Neji tells her that her attempts to fight her destiny are only bringing her harm, but she rebuts that his own attempt to fight the destiny of the branch house brings him even more harm. Neji is enraged and attempts to kill her, but he is stopped by the observing [[jōnin]]. Hinata collapses, the damage to her organs being too severe, and before she loses consciousness she sees Naruto checking on her; she wonders if she managed to change at all. She's taken away by a team of [[medical-nin]] to be given emergency medical attention.

After a month, on the day of the Chūnin Exams' final matches, Hinata has recovered. Although she's supposed to take it easy, she practices at the [[Third Training Ground]]. Naruto stops there on his way to finals and is glad to see she's better. Because he's scheduled to fight Neji, Naruto shares his concerns that he might not be strong enough to defeat him. Hinata says that she believes he is strong enough, and that even if he isn't physically strong he still has strength of perseverance: a willingness to keep trying despite apparent failure until he finally conquers his obstacle. She admires him for that. Naruto is put at ease, thanks her, and informs her that his impression of her as "weird" was wrong, as he actually likes her. Hinata is left speechless as he walks away.

Hinata watches Naruto's fight against Neji with Kiba. Seeing Naruto receive so many of Neji's attacks upsets Hinata and causes her internal injuries to begin bleeding again. Kiba gets an [[Anbu]] ([[Kabuto Yakushi]]) to treat her. Although the Anbu heals her, she is rendered unconscious and thus is unable to watch Naruto's defeat of Neji.

After a day of searching, Hinata goes off by herself and trains by a waterfall in order to create a new jutsu.

Hinata sets it back in place, allowing him to remove the Ten-Tails from the control of [[Madara]] and [[Obito Uchiha]].
   
The extended fighting eventually starts to tire Naruto out, so Hinata rallies a defence around him while Sakura Haruno heals him. She later joins Team 8's attack on the [[Ten-Tails Fission|Ten-Tails' clone]]s: she starts performing the [[Eight Trigrams Sixty-Four Palms]], but stumbles midway and fears she may not be able to complete it. By thinking of Neji and Naruto, she finds the resolve to follow through to its end and then prepares to use her [[Gentle Step Twin Lion Fists]].

When the Ten-Tails suddenly disappears from the battlefield, Sakura asks what Hinata saw with her Byakugan. Hinata explains that she saw the Ten-Tails absorbed into Obito, meaning he has become its [[jinchūriki]]. Because of the abilities this grants Obito, Hinata and most of the rest of the Alliance stand no chance against him and must leave the fighting to others such as Naruto. But Hinata remains alert for opportunities to contribute and pitches in when they emerge, first by joining the rest of the Konoha 11 in hitting Obito with one of Naruto's [[Rasengan]], and then by assisting the rest of the Alliance with pulling the tailed beasts' chakra from Obito's body.

With Obito defeated, Naruto goes off to fight Madara, leaving the Allied Shinobi Forces to fight a final [[Tobi (Zetsu)|Zetsu]]. As they struggle against the Zetsu, Kiba senses Naruto's return to their battlefield and Hinata seeks him out with her Byakugan. She becomes horrified as she notices that his heartbeat is slowing and runs to him to provide assistance, but she collapses from exhaustion midway and can only plead Neji to look out for Naruto.

Two years after the war, as the [[Rinne Festival]] approaches, Hinata decides to confess her feelings for Naruto by knitting a scarf for him, a replacement for the one he gave her when they were children. Although she completes the scarf, Hinata struggles to bring herself to give it to him, and it is only at the encouragement of Sakura and Hanabi that she finally approaches him. Once she finds him at [[Ramen Ichiraku]], Hinata is intimidated first by Naruto's many other [[[[Naruto's Fan Girls|female admirers]] and then by the fact that he is already wearing a scarf that he clearly cherishes. Assuming he's already found somebody, Hinata runs off. As she cries over the scarf alone, she is approached by [[Toneri Ōtsutsuki]], who requests to be given the scarf instead. He captures her with his [[puppet]]s and the puppets try escaping Konoha with her, but Naruto rescues her; the scarf she made is ripped in the battle.

In place of Hinata, Toneri is successfully able to kidnap Hanabi. Hinata requests to be added to the [[Hanabi Rescue Team|team]] sent to rescue her. After leaving Konoha, Hinata is able to find Hanabi's trail using her Byakugan, which leads them to an underground passage. Shortly after entering the passageway, the team is trapped in a [[Genjutsu Ball Trap|genjutsu]] that dredges up old memories. While Hinata relives moments from her past that relate to Naruto, the scarf - which she's in the process of repairing - gets loose from her bag and wraps around Naruto, sharing her memories and corresponding feelings with him. Sakura is able to release them from the genjutsu and they start to continue ahead. Hinata is held back by Toneri, who asks Hinata to marry him. He explains that he has taken Hanabi's Byakugan for himself in order to carry out [[Hamura Ōtsutsuki]]'s decree to destroy the Earth, after which he can create a new world with Hinata's help.

Hinata Uzumaki (うずまきヒナタ, Uzumaki Hinata, née Hyūga (日向, Hyūga)) is a member of Konohagakure's Hyūga clan. Because she has a meek disposition, much of her family doubts that she is suited for the responsibilities of the clan, much less life as a ninja. From observation of Naruto Uzumaki, Hinata finds both an example to follow to be more assertive, and a person to love. In her membership with Team 8, she seeks to become strong enough to change herself, if even a little at a time, and thus become worthy of Naruto.

Background

Hanabi&#039;s Gentle Fist

Hinata and Hanabi fight for the heiress position.

Hinata is the oldest daughter of Hiashi Hyūga. Because Hiashi was the head of the Hyūga clan's main house, Hinata was raised to be its heiress and her family expected great things from her. But even at a young age, it started to become clear to some of the Hyūga that Hinata was not suited for the role of heiress, as she struggled against her father in their training sessions and her timid personality prevented her from excelling. When she was young, Hinata was almost kidnapped by a Head Ninja of Kumogakure, who was visiting Konoha in order to sign a peace treaty between their two villages. Hiashi killed him and saved Hinata, setting in motion what would become known as the Hyūga Affair.[9] Hiashi continued to train Hinata, but when Hinata's younger sister, Hanabi, started displaying superior talent, he began to reconsider Hinata's selection as heiress. In the anime, Hinata and Hanabi were pit against each other to determine who would one day lead the Hyūga. Because Hinata was unwilling to harm Hanabi - an unwillingness Hanabi did not share - she was defeated, disappointing her father.[10]

Naruto&#039;s first encounter with Hinata

Hinata meets Naruto.

On a snowy day - the day of her enrolment in Konoha's Ninja Academy[11] - Hinata was picked on by three bullies because of her Byakugan. Naruto Uzumaki, despite not knowing her, immediately came to her defence, but he was outnumbered and knocked unconscious, and the bullies damaged the red scarf he was wearing. When he regained consciousness, Hinata thanked him for helping her and returned his scarf to him, but he let her keep it. Hinata started watching Naruto from that point onwards, and by doing so saw Naruto's desire to gain attention and his struggle to exceed the low expectations others had for him. Yet in spite of this, Naruto never lost faith in himself or his dream to become Hokage. Hinata was inspired by this and started emulating Naruto, adopting his refusal to never give up as a means of earning her father's approval. In the anime, Hinata's growing affections for Naruto were noticed by the Hyūga's elders, who warned her to stay away from him.[12]

Personality

Hinata is soft-spoken and polite, always addressing people with proper honourifics. She is deeply kind, always thinking of others' feelings and well-being. She doesn't like to be confrontational for any reason; she doesn't even like being confrontational about her dislike of confrontation. It is for this reason that Hinata so often comes off as meek or timid to others, as her overwhelming kindness can render her unable to respond or act for fear of offending somebody.[13] Her father's constant push to alter this personality trait when she was younger only made it worse, eroding Hinata's self-confidence and making her even more bashful because she placed so little faith in her own thoughts and opinions.[3]

Hinata's outlook sees a shift after her appointment to Team 8. Whereas her father and much of the Hyūga clan had decided she was a lost cause who would never amount to anything,[14] her team considers her a valuable member with her own special strong points: Kurenai Yūhi recognises Hinata's difficult upbringing and her struggles to improve, and for that reason focuses on Hinata's successes rather than her failures;[15] Kiba Inuzuka is protective of her, wishing to keep her from harm and playfully teasing her about her personality quirks;[16][17] Shino Aburame, though often even quieter than Hinata, is confident in her abilities and will not hesitate to assure others of her competency.[citation needed] When she first joins Team 8, she finds herself over-relying on her team-mates, looking to them in times of difficulty to save her from situations that make her uncomfortable. It is for her team-mates - among other reasons - that Hinata starts seeking to change herself, as she wishes to help the team rather than burden it.[15]

Hinata's main motivation is Naruto Uzumaki, with whom she has been fascinated since meeting him. He initially gained her attention because of his outspoken kindness, and then kept her attention because of similarities that Hinata perceived to herself: Naruto had a painful childhood without the love of parents, a fate worse than the mere difficulty she had with her own father, and he craves the attention and acknowledegment of anybody, just as Hinata wants to please her father.[18] But whereas Hinata lost faith in herself and let others tell her she couldn't succeed, Naruto always believes in himself and knows that he can accomplish any given task if he tries hard enough. She admires him deeply for this courage and over time falls in love with him, which manifests as increased shyness and speechlessness when around him. Although most people understand the reason for Hinata's behaviour around Naruto, Naruto himself thinks it's just Hinata's normal, if "weird", personality.

Hinata strives to improve herself in order to benefit her team and to prove herself to her father, but mostly to gain the attention and worthiness of Naruto. She emulates him to this purpose, adopting his nindō of never giving up as the means by which she will change herself. To that end, she stops running from confrontation, instead doing all that she can to face it. If she fails, she gets up again and trains herself to not fail a second time. Hinata initially can only manage to practice this nindō when Naruto is nearby, but even then it is rewarding: she is able to speak her mind to him, for which he decides his view of her as "weird" was incorrect. By the end of Part I, she even displays it when Naruto is not around, for which reason her father's and the Hyūga clan's faith in her is restored and strengthened.[17]

In Part II and onwards, Hinata is a fully capable ninja of Konoha, who, like her peers, is comfortable with her opinions, dutiful in combat and on missions, and willing to put her life on the line for her friends and village.[19] But Naruto remains her primary motivation: it is in order to protect him that she fights Pain alone, in full knowledge that she will lose;[20] it is because the Allied Shinobi Forces' aim to protect Naruto that she fights in the Fourth Shinobi World War, pushing herself more than usual in case it will bring victory and thus assure Naruto's safety; it is to save Naruto that she fights Kinshiki and Momoshiki Ōtsutsuki and is subsequently hospitalised in the failed attempt. She even defends Naruto from himself when he's in doubt, repeating to him his own refusal to never give up when he begins contemplating doing just that.[21]

During The Last: Naruto the Movie, Naruto finally recognises the love that Hinata has always had for him; realising that she alone has never lost faith in him and that she has always been there for him, he reciprocates her feelings. They marry (after only a few months of dating according to Sakura Hiden) and eventually have two children, Boruto and Himawari. When Naruto becomes Hokage, Hinata remains supportive of him and his increased responsibilities and tries to keep Boruto and Himawari happy despite his frequent absences, even though she herself also yearned for her husband to be at home. As a mother, she loves and is protective of her children, but also realises that they, particularly Boruto, take after Naruto and that she must have faith in them to do things themselves.[22]

Appearance

As a Hyūga, Hinata possesses the Byakugan, giving her featureless white eyes (the anime depicts them with tinges of lavender). She has dark blue hair that she keeps in a hime-cut of different lengths: in Part I, her hair is short, kept just above her forehead with chin-length strands framing her face; in Part II, her hair reaches her lower back and the framing strands grow to shoulder-length; in The Last: Naruto the Movie, her hair extends beyond her hips; by adulthood her hair is cut back, usually between Part I and Part II lengths, but it is occasionally seen to be long enough to tie in a ponytail.[23] Hinata develops large breasts in Part II, which omake sometimes make reference to; in Road to Naruto the Movie, Sakura Haruno is jealous that Hinata's breasts float on their own in the bath.

  • Hinata in Part I.
  • Hinata in Part II.

In Part I, Hinata usually wears a cream-coloured hooded-jacket with a fire symbol on the upper sleeves and fur around the cuffs and hem. Along with this she wears navy blue pants and keeps her forehead protector around her neck. In Part II, she dons a loose fitting, lavender and cream hooded-jacket with lavender cuffs over mesh armour. She also wears navy blue pants, black, low-heeled sandals, and changes the cloth of her forehead protector from blue to black. Hinata switches to the standard Konoha infantry flak jacket and assorted clothing during the Fourth Shinobi World War, though she does not seem to use a forehead protector while wearing it.

  • Hinata in The Last: Naruto the Movie.
  • Hinata in Boruto: Naruto the Movie.

In The Last: Naruto the Movie, Hinata's mission attire is a light lavender, sleeveless kimono-style blouse with vertical lines, tied with a dark purple obi around her waist. She wears a pair of short dark navy shorts with thigh-high stockings and has changed her regular ninja sandals to black high-heeled boots. She continues to not wear her forehead protector. Her outfits become more varied after that, changing to match the occasion or simply being more casual than her prior garb. During Boruto: Naruto the Movie, she consistently wears a light purple short-sleeved jacket with a long-sleeved white shirt underneath, light brown shorts, and purple open-toed boots.

Abilities

Hakke Kūhekishō

Hinata using one of her clan's techniques with Neji.

Hinata's gentle personality reflected her performance in the Academy; her acknowledged lack of special talent has caused many in the Hyūga clan to not expect much from her. After her graduation, she focuses on getting stronger; as she puts more effort in her training, Hinata receives consistent praise from her team-mates and even some Hyūga for her improving abilities. With her strengthening character, Hinata becomes more willing to face threats for the sake of others: during Pain's Assault, she fights the Deva Path in order to protect Naruto Uzumaki,[20] which Naruto says proves she's strong;[24] during the Fourth Shinobi World War, Hinata works well with her cousin, Neji Hyūga, protecting him just as effectively as he protects her;[19] years later in Boruto: Naruto the Movie, she faces Kinshiki and Momoshiki Ōtsutsuki alone in an attempt to rescue Naruto.

Hinata doesn't usually use standard ninjutsu, but her nature transformations include Fire and Lightning Release.[4] In the anime, she uses the Mystical Palm Technique to heal wounded.[25]

Chakra

Team three sealing

Hinata's chakra control used for a barrier.

In the anime, Hinata begins training to improve her chakra control during Part I; one of the earliest products of this training is her ability to make Water Needles by forming her chakra around nearby water sources, making it into a projectile. By Part II of the anime, Hinata's control has advanced enough to match a medical-nin's, for which reason she is assigned to help perform the Four-Corner Sealing Barrier.

In The Last: Naruto the Movie, Hinata inherited some of Hamura Ōtsutsuki's chakra because she is a member of the Hyūga clan's main house. It is the strength and purity of her chakra that attracts Toneri Ōtsutsuki, and later prompts Hamura himself to give his chakra to her. Hamura's chakra changes Hinata's from blue to purple and makes her uniquely able to destroy the Tenseigan. She is also shown using this chakra to replenish Naruto's with no signs of tiring herself in the process.

Byakugan

File:Hinata's Byakugan.png

As a Hyūga, Hinata possesses the Byakugan, a dōjutsu that grants her penetrative vision in a near-360° around herself. With it, she is able to assist the other members of Team 8 in their frequent tracking duties, scouting the area for their target(s); by focusing her vision in a single direction, Hinata can see across vast distances, reaching as far away as 20 kilometres by The Last: Naruto the Movie. Hinata's Byakugan grants her attacks pinpoint accuracy, which she can share with others to also improve their own.[26] She can also use it in order to identify genjutsu, searching for the caster in the nearby area.[27] In the anime, Hinata's vision is shown to be telescopic and infrared.[28]

Taijutsu

File:Ep46hinata.png

With the Byakugan, Hinata is able to see individuals' chakra pathway systems and the 361 tenketsu that run along it. By using the Hyūga's signature Gentle Fist fighting style, Hinata can attack an opponent's chakra system directly, constricting or cutting off their chakra flow from only minimal contact.[14] Although this enables Hinata to attack an opponent's internal organs, she can also use it in a supplementary function, such as by setting dislocated shoulders back in place.[29] In Part I, Hinata's skill with the Gentle Fist is considered inferior to her younger sister, Hanabi's, but by the time she reaches adulthood she is called a "master" in it.[30]

Jūho Sōshiken

Hinata's Gentle Step Twin Lion Fists.

In Part I of the anime, Hinata uses her practiced chakra control to create the Protecting Eight Trigrams Sixty-Four Palms, with which she emits streams of chakra from her palms to create extremely sharp blades that simultaneously attack and defend.[31] By Part II, she creates the Gentle Step Twin Lion Fists, which she can combine with her Gentle Fist attacks to drain an opponent's chakra at the same time she is cutting their access to it. She also starts using the Eight Trigrams Vacuum Palm to attack targets outside her physical range or deflect incoming attacks;[32] when performed in combination with others, its strength is accordingly increased.[33] During the Fourth Shinobi World War, Hinata finally learns to perform the Eight Trigrams Sixty-Four Palms in order to completely seal a target's chakra.[34] She had previously demonstrated a halved version of it in the anime.[35]

Part I

Prologue — Land of Waves

Main article: Prologue — Land of Waves In the anime, while the graduates of her Academy class are being assigned to teams, Hinata hopes that she will be on the same team as Naruto Uzumaki. To her disappointment, she is instead added to Kurenai Yūhi's Team 8, along with Kiba Inuzuka and Shino Aburame. Kurenai reports this to Hinata's father, Hiashi Hyūga, but he is unconcerned and in fact abandons Hinata to Kurenai's care, feeling she is unworthy of the Hyūga clan.[14]

Chūnin Exams

Main article: Chūnin Exams

Naruto and hinata at first exam

Hinata lets Naruto copy her test.

Despite how recently they graduated from the Academy, Kurenai enters Team 8 in the Chūnin Exams being held in Konoha; Hinata agrees to participate because she wants to change herself. For the exams' first stage, Hinata is seated next to Naruto as they take a written test. The objective in the first stage is to cheat off of other examinee's paper without getting caught, but Naruto doesn't realise this and agonises about potentially failing. Seeing this, Hinata offers to let him copy off of her paper. He suspects she's trying to trick him, but she assures him that she only wants to be helpful. Although he considers taking her up on her offer, Naruto ultimately declines, fearing that he'll get her disqualified if they're caught and claiming that, besides, he isn't the type to cheat.

Team 8 hides from gaara

Team 8 hides from Gaara.

Although Naruto is given the opportunity to forfeit, he refuses to do so, and for his determination, he passes the first stage along with Hinata and their teams. For the second stage, participants enter the Forest of Death with the objective of obtaining a set of two scrolls, one of which they are given at the start. Team 8 manages to collect their second scroll right after the second stage has started, and so they head for the center of the forest where they're supposed to turn in the scrolls. Along the way, Kiba's partner, Akamaru, senses the Three Sand Siblings' fight with Team Shigure. Team 8 watches the fight from the cover of some nearby bushes and is horrified when Gaara mercilessly kills all of Team Shigure. After they're certain Gaara won't kill them too, they proceed to the center of the forest.

After passing the second stage, the remaining participants take part in one-on-one preliminary matches. During Naruto's fight with Kiba, Hinata's loyalties are torn; she wants to cheer for Naruto, but fears that would be rude to Kiba. When Naruto wins the fight, Hinata gives both him and Kiba some of the Hyūga Clan Secret Ointment so that their wounds will heal faster. As he's being taken away to rest, Kiba pleads for Hinata to forfeit if she's matched against Gaara or her cousin, Neji Hyūga. She is indeed matched against Neji, a member of a Hyūga clan branch house who hates all members of the main house. Neji, like Kiba, tries to convince Hinata to forfeit, telling her that she's too meek and insecure to be a ninja. She begins to offer arguments in her defence, but Neji persists, claiming that she is fated to be a failure, a fact that he believes she's aware of due to her frightened reaction to what he says.

Gentle fist

Hinata fights Neji.

Neji's words cause Hinata to cry, but also anger the watching Naruto, who insists that Hinata can change herself if she wants to and who encourages her to defeat Neji. Because Naruto has faith in her, Hinata refuses to forfeit and prepares to fight; Neji is surprised by the new confidence in her. Hinata and Neji exchange Gentle Fist-blows, but only Neji's are effective, which he reveals to be because he sealed her tenketsu at the start of their fight. Although her attacks are ineffective against him, Hinata continues fighting, in the process enduring mounting internal trauma from Neji's counterattacks. Neji repeatedly tells her to forfeit, but Hinata refuses, unwilling to back down both as a matter of principle and because Naruto continues to cheer for her.

Episode 47

Hinata is saved from Neji.

Neji directly attacks Hinata's heart, leading all but Naruto to believe she's been defeated. When Hayate Gekkō is about to declare Neji the winner, Naruto stops him and motions to Hinata struggling to her feet. Neji tells her that her attempts to fight her destiny are only bringing her harm, but she rebuts that his own attempt to fight the destiny of the branch house brings him even more harm. Neji is enraged and attempts to kill her, but he is stopped by the observing jōnin. Hinata collapses, the damage to her organs being too severe, and before she loses consciousness she sees Naruto checking on her; she wonders if she managed to change at all. She's taken away by a team of medical-nin to be given emergency medical attention.

File:Hinata encourages naruto.png

After a month, on the day of the Chūnin Exams' final matches, Hinata has recovered somewhat. Although she's supposed to take it easy, she practices at the Third Training Ground. Naruto stops there on his way to finals and is glad to see she's better. Because he's scheduled to fight Neji, Naruto shares his concerns that he might not be strong enough to defeat him. Hinata says that she believes he is strong enough, and that even if he isn't physically strong he still has strength of perseverance: a willingness to keep trying despite apparent failure until he finally conquers his obstacle. She admires him for that. Naruto is put at ease, thanks her, and informs her that his impression of her as "weird" was wrong, as he actually likes her. Hinata is left speechless as he walks away.

Hinata watches Naruto's fight against Neji with Kiba. Seeing Naruto receive so many of Neji's attacks upsets Hinata and causes her internal injuries to begin bleeding again. Kiba gets an Anbu (Kabuto Yakushi) to treat her. Although the Anbu heals her, she is rendered unconscious and thus is unable to watch Naruto's defeat of Neji.

Konoha Crush

Main article: Konoha Crush In the anime, when the invasion of Konoha begins, the still-unconscious Hinata is kidnapped by Kumo-nin. She is rescued by Neji, who has had a change of perspective as a result of his loss to Naruto. Several days after the invasion is successfully repelled, Hinata attends the Third Hokage's funeral.

Team 8 and Naruto searching for the bikōchū.

In the anime, Team 8 (at Hinata's insistence) helps Naruto find a bikōchū, which he can use to locate Sasuke by scent. After a day of searching, Hinata goes off by herself and trains by a waterfall in order to create a new jutsu. Naruto sees her, though he doesn't realise it's Hinata; she becomes embarrassed when he later tells Kiba about the "beautiful girl" he saw. When they are attacked by members of the Kamizuru clan, Hinata uses her new Protecting Eight Trigrams Sixty-Four Palms to save her team. Although they ultimately fail in their plan to use the bikōchū to find Sasuke, their near-success earns praise from Hinata's father, Hiashi.

Academy Student Lead Mission

Buried Gold Excavation Mission

Main article: Buried Gold Excavation Mission In the anime, Naruto, Kiba, and Hinata are sent on another mission together in order to improve their teamwork, which their previous mission failures suggests they lack. While searching for a buried treasure, they are attacked by the Kedōin clan, who impersonate each of them so that they can infiltrate Konoha and destroy it from within. Although they escape from the Kedōin, Naruto and Kiba must stop them by themselves due to a leg injury Hinata sustained. She later returned to Konoha and mistakenly attacked Naruto, whom she believed to be an impostor.

Team Kurenai Chūnin Exams

Team 8 entering the Chūnin Exams.

In the anime, Konoha and Sunagakure hold a joint Chūnin Exam two years after Naruto's departure, which Team 8 once again enters. During the first exam, Hinata, Kiba, and Shino are seated in different rooms and are tasked with getting a combined score of exactly 100 points on their written test despite their separation.[36] Neji comes up with the idea for teams to communicate which questions to answer by producing vibrations on the walls. After the initial testing period is over, they are given a bonus question: each team must unanimously select one of their members to disqualify from the rest of the exams. Team 8 selects nobody, which is the correct answer and which qualifies them for the next phase.[37]

Those who pass the first test must reach the Demon Desert within three days in order to participate in the second exam. Team 8 successfully does so and they are given the same objective as they had in the exam several years ago: obtain a scroll from another team.[38] Team 8 eventually encounters Team Kazami, who is able to steal their scroll during the ensuing fight. Despite Team Kazami's attempts to prevent Team 8 from pursuing them, Shino is able to track them using his kikaichū.[39] During their search, Team 8 is ambushed by Team Kazami, though they are able to escape thanks to Shino's insect clone. They regroup and then reengage with Team Kazami, with Kiba ultimately defeating them. With their own scroll back and with Team Kazami's scroll now in their possession, Team 8 heads to the center of the desert to turn in the scrolls.[40]

Team 8 gets lost in a sandstorm along the way.[41] They are rescued by one of the exam's proctors, who brings them to where all of the other examinees are being assembled. They are informed that the Chūnin Exams have been cancelled; reports on the participants' performances will be sent back to their villages, leaving their promotion up to their superiors. When they get back to Konoha, the Fifth Hokage promotes Hinata, Kiba, and Shino to chūnin.[42]

As she approaches them, she sees them talking to Naruto. She screams in surprise and hides behind a fence while she tries to build up the courage to greet him. Having heard her scream, Naruto investigates the source and, finding Hinata, says hello to her, inadvertently making her collapse from shock. Naruto invites Team 8 to help him on a mission to find Sasuke, but they can't since they've already got another assignment.

In the anime, Kakashi Hatake recruits Team 8's members to help him investigate one of Orochimaru's recently-discovered bases. During their investigation, they are attacked by some of Orochimaru's subordinates, Team Guren. When Kiba struggles against Nurari, Hinata switches with him, using her Byakugan to navigate through the smoke Nurari employs. The team's leader, Guren, soon traps Team 8 in her Jade Crystal Labyrinth Technique. Although the labyrinth's reflective surface makes it difficult for her to focus with her Byakugan, Hinata is able to locate Guren and defeat one of her Jade Crystal Clones, but is then encased in a crystal prison, where she remains until found by Team 7.

When they come across the Three-Tails, Hinata is assigned to a team tasked with sealing it. They are interrupted by Team Guren before they can complete the Four-Corner Sealing Barrier, prompting Konoha to recall them and send Anbu to seal the Three-Tails in their place.

Eight Man Squad

Teams 7 and 8 set out.

Teams 7 and 8 are combined into an Eight Man Squad with the mission of locating Sasuke or Itachi Uchiha. When they split up to search, Naruto, because he's a target of Akatsuki, is given a protective escort in the form of Hinata, Yamato, and Bull. Their group is soon confronted by Kabuto Yakushi, who offers them intel on Akatsuki and its members. Noticing something strange about Kabuto, Hinata examines him with her Byakugan and discovers that a third of his body has been taken over by Orochimaru's remains. Kabuto escapes and they later regroup with the rest of the team. Kiba is able to find Sasuke's trail, which they begin following.

Fated Battle Between Brothers

Main article: Fated Battle Between Brothers As they near Sasuke's location, they are intercepted by Tobi of Akatsuki. They make repeated attempts to kill or capture him, but every attack passes through him without sign of damage. Suspecting a genjutsu is being used, Hinata searches the area with her Byakugan to locate a caster, but can find nobody. She focuses on Tobi's chakra signature to try and understand how his ability works, but is mystified when it simply vanishes. Tobi leaves them when he receives news that Itachi has died while fighting Sasuke. Hinata uses her Byakugan to locate where their fight took place and they rush to reach Sasuke before Tobi does, but they are too late and cannot rediscover his trail.

When Pain's Assault on Konoha begins, Hinata joins her team-mates in defending the village. Pain later destroys the village, but Hinata is saved from harm by Katsuyu. Hinata's bodyguard, Kō Hyūga, is not as fortunate, but he refuses Hinata's attempts to find him medical attention. Hinata watches as Naruto fights Pain alone, initially obeying Katsuyu's and Kō's instructions not to interfere. After Naruto is captured by Pain's Deva Path, however, Hinata does not hesitate to come to his defence, forcing the Deva Path away from him. Naruto pleads for her to run away, telling her that she can't defeat Pain. Despite knowing this already, she tells Naruto that she will fight Pain because, after years of watching him and improving herself by following his example, Hinata loves Naruto and will do what she can to protect him.

Sakura healing Hinata

Sakura heals Hinata.

Hinata starts attacking the Deva Path with her Gentle Step Twin Lion Fists. In the anime, she succeeds in removing some of the black receivers that restrains Naruto and even hitting the Deva Path, but the outcome remains the same: the Deva Path quickly defeats her with Shinra Tensei. The Deva Path then stabs her with another black receiver, leading Naruto to believe Hinata has been killed and thus causing him to enter a version 2 form. Hinata, however, is still alive, and when Team Guy finds her, Neji gets her immediate medical attention. Sakura Haruno heals Hinata's injuries, allowing her to tearfully join in the village's celebration when Naruto returns after defeating Pain.

News reaches Konoha of Sasuke's recent activity with Akatsuki, specifically his attack against Kumogakure-ninja. Hinata and the rest of the Konoha 11 (sans Naruto) decide that Sasuke can no longer be allowed to implicate Konoha in his criminal deeds and they resolve to personally kill him. When Naruto returns to Konoha after learning of this and having his own confrontation with Sasuke, he requests that they leave dealing with Sasuke to him.

Power

Paradise Life on a Boat

Main article: Paradise Life on a Boat In the anime, Hinata meets with Kurenai and is told that several members of the Konoha 11 have encountered Naruto while he travels to the Land of Lightning. When Hinata is summoned to a meeting with the Fifth Hokage, Hinata is hopeful that she will also get sent on such a mission. After much searching for where exactly the Hokage is, Hinata is disappointed to learn that the Hokage only wants to discuss Neji's selection to lead the Hyūga during the approaching Fourth Shinobi World War. She is later invited to Yakiniku Q to have dinner with other girls in her age group. The dinner's conversation turns to Naruto, during which Hinata realises that she doesn't need to go on a mission with Naruto to be able to help him.

Fourth Shinobi World War: Confrontation

Main article: Fourth Shinobi World War: Confrontation

Hinata and Neji

Hinata and Neji protecting each other during the war.

When the Fourth Shinobi World War begins, Hinata is placed alongside Neji in the Second Division. Their entire division is sent to intercept a large segment of the White Zetsu Army, which Neji and Hinata join forces in attacking after Kitsuchi unearths the Zetsu army. Although the Zetsus suffer heavy casualties, their numbers are too great and the fight becomes one of attrition. After a day of fighting, Neji collapses from exhaustion, at which point Hinata takes responsibility for monitoring the Second Division's perimeter with her Byakugan. Shino encourages her not to over-exert herself, but she assures him that she doesn't mind since she's fighting to keep Naruto safe.

In the anime, Hinata, Kiba, and Shino investigate a possible breach of the Allied Shinobi Forces' perimeter. They discover several White Zetsus within Allied territory, and in the fight to destroy them Hinata is knocked unconscious. One Zetsu impersonates her and successfully pretends to be her for a time using its knowledge of her feelings for Naruto, but Kiba and Shino eventually discover it and, after defeating it, rescue Hinata.[43] On the second day of the war, Hinata helps members of the Second Division escape the area of Neji's fight with the reincarnated Kidōmaru. She later finds Neji unconscious with Kiba and Akamaru. Hinata examines their bodies with her Byakugan and discovers that their chakra flow has completely stopped. She reports this to Inoichi Yamanaka, who is able to use the information to help Naruto save them. Hinata tearfully hugs Neji when he wakes ups.[44]

File:Naruto saving Hinata.png

With all levels of the Allied Shinobi Forces infiltrated by disguised White Zetsus, Hinata and the others are placed on high alert due to periodic surprise attacks by what they thought were their allies. When Naruto reaches the Second Division's location he starts identifying and defeating the disguised Zetsus, including three that attempt to attack Hinata. Although Neji is suspicious that Naruto may also be a White Zetsu, Hinata insists it's the real Naruto, which she can tell by looking in his eyes. Hinata apologises to Naruto for the suspicion he's receiving and regrets that he is still needing to save her when she's the one trying to fight for him. Naruto reassures her that she's strong enough to look after herself; he's merely returning the favour for all the times in the past she's helped him. She silently thanks him as he leaves.

Hyuga shield

The Hyūga protect Naruto.

Hinata and the rest of the Allied Shinobi Forces are sent to assist Naruto in his battle with the Ten-Tails. Recognising how crucial Naruto is to the war's victory, Hinata, Neji, and Hiashi join forces to block attacks directed at him. Neji and Hiashi quickly become preoccupied protecting other Allies from the Ten-Tails too, leaving only Hinata to defend Naruto. The Ten-Tails fires several volleys of wood projectiles at him, which Hinata uses her body to defend him from. Neji in turn uses his body to defend her and is mortally wounded because of it. As he dies, Neji observes that Hinata was willing to die for Naruto, which he uses as evidence that Naruto is responsible for more lives than his own. He then dies from his injuries and Hinata cries for him.

Naruto gives Hinata power

Hinata at Naruto's side.

Naruto is disheartened by the deaths of Neji and others in the Alliance. When he starts to show signs of giving up, Hinata brings him back senses by reminding him of his vow to not let any of his friends die. Although Neji may be dead, he will live on so long as others continue the fight that he gave his life for. Therefore, Naruto must stay true to the creed he has been using for so long and that she has long since adopted for herself: to not give up. Naruto's resolve is renewed and he thanks her for standing by his side. He then takes her hand and transfers some chakra to her, giving her a version 1-like shroud that protects her and augments her attacks against the Ten-Tails. As Naruto leads the Alliance's attacks against the Ten-Tails, his arm becomes dislocated. Hinata sets it back in place, allowing him to remove the Ten-Tails from the control of Madara and Obito Uchiha.

The extended fighting eventually starts to tire Naruto out, so Hinata rallies a defence around him while Sakura Haruno heals him. She later joins Team 8's attack on the Ten-Tails' clones: she starts performing the Eight Trigrams Sixty-Four Palms on a Ten-Tails mini-clone, but stumbles midway and fears she may not be able to complete it. By thinking of Neji and Naruto, she finds the resolve to follow through to its end and defeats the clone. She then prepares to use her Gentle Step Twin Lion Fists.

Birth of the Ten-Tails' Jinchūriki

Main article: Birth of the Ten-Tails' Jinchūriki

Susanoo K11

The Konoha 11 help attack Obito.

When the Ten-Tails suddenly disappears from the battlefield, Sakura asks what Hinata saw with her Byakugan. Hinata explains that she saw the Ten-Tails being absorbed into Obito, meaning he has become its jinchūriki. Because of the abilities this grants Obito, Hinata and most of the rest of the Alliance stand no chance against him and must leave the fighting to others such as Naruto. But Hinata remains alert for opportunities to contribute and pitches in when they emerge, first by joining the rest of the Konoha 11 in hitting Obito with one of Naruto's Rasengan, and then by assisting the rest of the Alliance with pulling the tailed beasts' chakra from Obito's body.

With Obito defeated, Naruto goes off to fight Madara, leaving the Allied Shinobi Forces to fight a final Zetsu. As they struggle against the Zetsu, Kiba senses Naruto's return to their battlefield and Hinata seeks him out with her Byakugan. She becomes horrified as she notices that his heartbeat is slowing and runs to him to provide assistance, but she collapses from exhaustion midway and can only plead Neji to help Naruto.

Hinata&#039;s knitting

Hinata knits Naruto's present.

Two years after the war, as the Rinne Festival approaches, Hinata decides to confess her feelings for Naruto by knitting a scarf for him, a replacement for the one he gave her when they were children. Although she completes the scarf, Hinata struggles to bring herself to give it to him, and it is only at the encouragement of Sakura and Hanabi that Hinata finally approaches Naruto. Once she finds him at Ramen Ichiraku, Hinata is intimidated, first by Naruto's many other female admirers, and then by the fact that he is already wearing a scarf that he clearly cherishes. Assuming he's already found somebody, Hinata runs off. As she cries over the scarf alone, she is approached by Toneri Ōtsutsuki, who requests to be given the scarf instead. He captures her with his puppets and they try escaping Konoha with her, but Naruto defeats the puppets and rescues her; the scarf she made is ripped in the battle.

Genjutsu Ball Trap

Hinata links with Naruto.

In place of Hinata, Toneri is successfully able to kidnap Hanabi. Hinata requests to be added to the team sent to rescue her. After leaving Konoha, Hinata is able to find Hanabi's trail using her Byakugan, which leads them to an underground passage. Shortly after entering the passageway, the team is trapped in a genjutsu that dredges up old memories. While Hinata relives moments from her past that relate to Naruto, the scarf - which she's in the process of repairing - gets loose from her bag and wraps around Naruto, sharing her memories and corresponding feelings with him. Sakura is able to release them from the genjutsu and they start to continue ahead. Hinata is held back by Toneri, who asks Hinata to marry him. He explains that he has taken Hanabi's Byakugan for himself in order to carry out Hamura Ōtsutsuki's decree to destroy the Earth, after which he can create a new world with Hinata's help.

Hinata refuses to cooperate and vows to save Hanabi on her own, to which Toneri observes that she doesn't know where Hanabi is. Naruto interrupts them and defeats Toneri, who turns out to only be another puppet. Toneri tells Hinata that he'll return later for her answer. Naruto and Hinata reunite with the rest of the team and exit the underground passage, arriving in what they later discover is the Moon's interior. They split up to explore the surrounding landscape, with Naruto spending more time with Hinata. He now displays a greater interest in her thoughts and well-being, pleasing Hinata and giving her greater resolve to complete the scarf. As she is about to confide in him what Toneri told her, the rest of the team locates them and asks Hinata to look at a crypt they've found. There, Hinata is confronted by another member of the Ōtsutsuki clan, who shows her visions of how to stop Toneri and who introduces her to Hamura himself, who asks her to save the Earth.

Naruto confesses to Hinata

Naruto tells Hinata he loves her.

Hinata does not share her visions with the others and starts diligently trying to complete the scarf. When they make camp later that night, Naruto confronts Hinata and assures her they will save Hanabi. He also tells her that he loves her, leaving her speechless. Rather, when Toneri comes for Hinata's answer, she gives the finished scarf to Naruto with her goodbyes and leaves with Toneri. Naruto follows, assuming she needs rescue. When Toneri reveals they will be married, Naruto is too overwhelmed with shock to react to Toneri's attack, leaving him badly injured and the scarf destroyed. When she's brought to Toneri's castle, Hinata checks on Hanabi to make sure she's alright and locates the Tenseigan that Toneri is using to control the Moon's movements against the Earth. She spends her time making yet another scarf, and when she has a chance she slips away to try to destroy the Tenseigan. She is found by Toneri's puppets and Toneri himself detains her, after which he destroys the new scarf and places her under his control.

Gentle Step Spiralling Twin Lion Fists

Naruto and Hinata destroy the Tenseigan.

Hinata is forced to go through with a wedding ceremony. Naruto interrupts before the ceremony can be completed and Toneri forces Hinata to fight him. Naruto is able to release her from Toneri's control, at which point she apologises to him for her earlier behavior, though he states he already understands and forgives her. Toneri becomes distracted by his own awakening Tenseigan, allowing Hinata to escape with Naruto to the primary Tenseigan's location. Because she possesses Hamura's chakra, only Hinata is able to destroy it. However, she lacks the raw strength to do so, and must instead channel her chakra into Naruto so that they can destroy it together. With the Tenseigan gone, the Moon's movements stop and the puppets that the rest of the team is elsewhere fighting are rendered inert. The team reunites with them, bringing along a rescued Hanabi and the remains of Hinata's scarf. Even though it's in tatters, Naruto asks if he can have it anyway, which Hinata happily complies with.

Naruto and Hinata kiss

Naruto and Hinata kiss.

Toneri uses his own awakened Tenseigan to resume the Moon's movement towards the Earth. He then attacks them and captures Hinata, forcing her to watch as he tries to kill Naruto. Naruto ends up defeating him instead and Hinata, once freed, takes back Hanabi's eyes. Toneri tries to make one final attack and Naruto and Hinata prepare to face him together, but Toneri's power is too great for him to control and he starts floating off into space. Naruto saves him and Toneri gives up, allowing Hinata to tell him Hamura's true wishes: to protect the Earth, not to destroy it. Toneri is repentant and remains behind when they head home, vowing not to let the Moon endanger the Earth again. As they return through the same passage they used before, Hinata asks Naruto about the scarf he's been wearing. He tells her it was a gift from his mother, causing her embarrassment that she would be jealous. Naruto tells her that she doesn't need to be since they will now always be together. The passageway disintegrates behind them and Naruto propels himself and Hinata back to the Earth, where they share their first kiss.

Epilogue

File:Himawari and Hinata.png

After they marry, Naruto and Hinata have two children: first a son, Boruto, and later a daughter, Himawari. Hinata withdraws from the life of a ninja in order to raise their children; from time to time she takes them to Neji's grave to leave flowers.[23] Naruto is eventually selected as Konoha's Seventh Hokage. On the day of his inauguration, Hinata volunteers to pick up his official Hokage cloak with plans to meet him at the ceremony. When she shows up there, Naruto and their children have yet to arrive, so she returns home to find them. She discovers Naruto unconscious with his tenketsu sealed, leaving Hinata confused about what could have happened.[45]

Main article: Boruto: Naruto the Movie While cleaning Naruto's office at home, Himawari discovers the jacket that Naruto used to wear, which Hinata smiles to see. Because it's Himawari's birthday, Hinata takes her out to buy food and decorations for the party later that night; they run into Boruto while they're out and he offers to carry his mother's bags. By the time they get home, they discover that Naruto is already there, having made a point to be home on time for the occasion. When Naruto later starts carrying Himawari's cake to the table to be served, he suddenly disappears, being only a shadow clone. The cake falls on the floor, making Himawari sad and Boruto angry. Hinata tries to convince Boruto that Naruto is doing the best that he can, but he leaves in an anger and Hinata can only comfort Himawari. Sasuke later drops by looking for Naruto, so Hinata directs him to the Hokage office.

Hinata healed by sakura

Sakura heals Hinata in the hospital.

Boruto enters the Chūnin Exams being held in Konoha and advances to the final round matches. While Hinata watches the fights with Himawari, Naruto approaches her and asks that she watch Boruto closely with her Byakugan. In doing so, she notices that he's using the Kote, a prohibited device that forces Naruto to disqualify him. The stadium is then immediately attacked by Kinshiki and Momoshiki Ōtsutsuki, and Hinata evacuates with the other spectators. When she learns that Naruto has been captured by Kinshiki and Momoshiki, Hinata goes after them in an effort to rescue him and is badly injured. Sakura heals her, but when she's told that Boruto plans to join Sasuke's rescue effort, she forces herself up so that she can stop him from going. When she sees him wearing Naruto's old jacket, she is reminded of his father and decides to believe in Boruto just as she always believes in Naruto.

Naruto is eventually rescued and life in Konoha returns to normal. After having breakfast with her family, Hinata starts to repair the damage Boruto received to his own jacket, but he asks her not to, believing it looks "cooler" while damaged, much to her pleasant surprise. She and Himawari see Naruto and Boruto off at the front door, wishing them both luck with their respective days.

File:Hinata Awakened.png

In later instalments of the Clash of Ninja series, Hinata is playable in an "awakened" form. In this form, her clothes are similar to what she wore during the Bikōchū Search Mission, though the form itself is not based on the events of that arc. Awakened Hinata has a personality similar to Neji's during the Chūnin Exams, arrogantly challenging opponents and boasting about the power of the main branch of the Hyūga clan. While in this form, she is also able to use techniques such as Eight Trigrams Sixty-Four Palms and Eight Trigrams Palms Revolving Heaven. Most Clash of Ninja games require that this awakened Hinata be selected separately, but in Clash of Ninja Revolution 3, normal Hinata can transform into her in the middle of battle by activating her Byakugan. A similar form appears in Ultimate Ninja 2, dubbed "Byakugan Hinata", with the main difference being she wears the traditional Hyūga attire.

In several of the Ultimate Ninja Storm games, the team combination of Hinata and Naruto is titled "Secret Lovers" or "Joined Hands".

Quotes

  • (To Neji) "I will never go back on my word… Because that too is my nindō, my ninja way!"[46]
  • (To herself) "Naruto… I have always watched you… Watched you for many years… Why? I don't know why, but whenever I look at you… I feel more courage within me… It makes me feel like I can accomplish something if I try… It makes me feel like I am worth something…"[47]
  • (To Naruto) "In my eyes… you're a proud failure! When I look at you, I get an intense feeling in my heart… Because you're not perfect… Because you fail… you have the strength to get back up… Because I believe that is what true strength is…"[48]
  • (To Naruto) "I used to always cry and give up… I made many wrong turns… But you… You helped me find the right path… I always chased after you… I wanted to catch up to you… I wanted to walk beside you all the time… I just wanted to be with you… You changed me! Your smile is what saved me! That is why I'm not afraid to die protecting you! Because… I love you…"[20]
  • (To herself) "Naruto… I've always been chasing after you… Even now… But once this war ends, I'm going to stop once and for all… Because next time, I will be by your side, holding your hand… walking with you! Please wait for me!!"[49]
  • (To Naruto) "Neji just said… that your life is not just your own anymore… Do you understand what he meant? Your words and desire to not let your comrades die… Neither of them are lies! What inspired Neji and carried him this far were those very principles! It's not just you, Naruto… we all hold those same words and feelings within our hearts. They're what bind our lives together and make us comrades. If we all give up and discard those words and feelings now, Neji's sacrifice will have been for nothing… And that is when your comrades truly die, for you are no longer comrades then. That's how I feel… Therefore… stand up together with me, Naruto… Because never going back on one's word… is my ninja way too!"[50]
