|Anime||Naruto Shippūden Episode #494|
Tsukune is a troublemaker playing pranks on his instructors along with his fellow classmates, Sansho and Mibuna. Like Naruto in his youth he pulls pranks so that he can be acknowledged to the point he even stole what he thought to be the Scroll of Seals. He appears to be a bit of an airhead as he easily fell for Iruka's taunt and admitted to the vandalism. Later, because of Iruka, Tsukune wants to become the Hokage and surpass Naruto.
Tsukune has short spiky brown hair and stone grey eyes.

When Iruka catches them in the act, they claim to only be playing hide-and-seek, but he tricks them into confessing. Iruka remarks that Naruto Uzumaki was a much bigger delinquent when he was a student, which Tsukune and the others don't believe. Later, after finding out that Naruto once stole the Scroll of Seals, Tsukune also steals it. Iruka tracks him to the Hokage Rock with help from Sansho and Mibuna. Recognizing that Tsukune just wants attention, Iruka apologizes for comparing him to previous students. Tsukune promises to try harder in the future.
