|Anime||Naruto Shippūden Episode #309|
|Appears in||Anime only|
Chiyo first appears as a viewer of the eating contest alongside Shū and her father. The next day after the eating contest, it was shown that Chiyo used to have literature classes along with Naruto while disguised as Shū. Those classes were ordered by her father. When the Land of This was attacked by the Akatsuki, she was saved by Naruto and Tatewaki, unfortunately her father died during the invasion, but she managed to leave the country safely with Shū and went to the Land of That.
The next day, Chiyo wakes Naruto, who is disguised as Shū and notifies him of breakfast's start and later takes literature classes with Naruto. Chiyo watches Naruto train with Tatewaki and is quick to notice his strange skills. Realising Naruto was only pretending to be Shū, she holds a weapon to his neck and threatens him, asking were the real Shū was. However, after using a smoke bomb, Naruto is able to escape. She finds Naruto once again, but is unable to fight him due to the Akatsuki's invasion. She is saved by Tatewaki and protected by Naruto during this time, and at the invasion's end is able to escape to the Land of That with Shū.
Chiyo is shown to be a polite and caring person, frequently referring to Shū with the suffix "-sama" and showing concern for his well-being, physical and emotional, as she later reprimands Tatewaki for his training methods, which she called too strict. Aside from that, Chiyo, alongside her father, is shown to be impressed by the final contestants as they struggled to finish their portions in the last part of the eating contest.
While seldom shown, Chiyo could also be fierce and decisive, as seen when she threatened Naruto after Tatewaki caught him impersonating Shū.
Chiyo has brown eyes and long brown hair with a red ribbon. While reminiscent of the Hime hair-style, she also kept two bangs framing her face that are curled up in the ends. She wears a pink kimono with a light pink sleevless haori with purple trimmings and an red and blue obi with a yellow cord around the waist.
While not explicitly shown, Chiyo was confident in the use of a naginata, certain that she could cut off "an arm or leg or two" of a cornered shinobi. However, perhaps due to her status, she showed very little experience in stressful situations, falling on her butt after being startled by a smoke bomb.
