{{translation|'''Hinata Hyūga'''|日向 ヒナタ|Hyūga Hinata}} is a major supporting character of the series. She is a [[chūnin]]-level [[Wikipedia:Kunoichi|kunoichi]] of [[Konohagakure]]'s [[Hyūga clan]] and a member of [[Team Kurenai]].

{{translation|'''Hinata Uzumaki'''|うずまきヒナタ|Uzumaki Hinata|[[wikipedia:née|née]] {{translation|'''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.

[[File:Hanabi's Gentle Fist.png|thumb|left|Hinata and Hanabi fight for the heiress position.]]
Hinata is the elder child of the Hyūga clan's leader: [[Hiashi Hyūga]], and as the first-born, was the heiress-apparent to the clan's main house. However, she apparently lost this position to her younger sister [[Hanabi]], as Hinata was deemed a failure by their father because of her lack of self confidence.<ref name="chpt78">''Naruto'' chapter 78, page 10</ref> When she was young she was kidnapped by a [[Head Ninja of Kumogakure|head ninja]] from [[Kumogakure]], who under the guise of striking a peace treaty with Konoha, had actually been sent there to steal the [[Byakugan]]. Her father killed the would-be kidnapper to save her, but Kumo demanded compensation in the form of Hiashi's dead body due to having signed a peace treaty with the village only moments before. This ultimately resulted in the death of Hinata's uncle, [[Hizashi Hyūga]], who sacrificed himself in order to protect his clan and village.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 102, pages 17-20</ref> This incident was particularly significant in shaping Hinata's early relationship with her cousin, [[Neji Hyūga]].
+
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]].<ref>Chapter 102, pages 17-20</ref> 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.<ref name="NS389">''Naruto: Shippūden'' episode 389</ref>

Because of her position as heiress, Hiashi had high expectations for Hinata and subjected her to gruelling training. However, Hinata's slow progress and frailty disheartened her father until eventually, he deemed her a lost cause. Instead, her father chose to focus and develop [[Hanabi Hyūga|Hinata's younger sister]], who proved much more promising than Hinata, making her the new heiress. By the time Hinata joined [[Team 8]], Hiashi had completely lost interest in Hinata, leaving her care and protection to [[Kurenai Yūhi]].<ref name="chpt78"/>

On a snowy day - the day of her enrolment in Konoha's [[Ninja Academy]]<ref>''The Last: Naruto the Movie'' novelisation</ref> - 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.<ref name="NS166">''Naruto: Shippūden'' episode 166</ref>
 
Hinata's strained relationship with her father caused her to lose more faith in herself and she would often spend her time alone, crying. It wasn't until she met [[Naruto Uzumaki]] that her perception changed drastically. Because Naruto was treated as an outcast by almost everyone in the village, Hinata found herself able to relate with his desire to be acknowledged and praised. She was amazed that despite Naruto having nothing and no one to rely on, he never gave up in believing he could become something great like [[Hokage]]. In the anime, Naruto was at one point shown protecting Hinata from bullies. Despite Naruto not knowing her, he refused to let the kids insult and degrade her. Since they outnumbered him, they beat him up and knocked him out. Surprised by how much Naruto wanted to help and believing that she too deserved to be acknowledged, Hinata was inspired. Like Naruto, she ultimately decided to try her best to become strong and never give up, so she could become acknowledged as well. This admiration of Naruto later grew into love despite warnings from her elders to stay away from him.<ref name="ep166">''Naruto: Shippūden'' episode 166</ref>
 
   
 
== Personality ==
 
== Personality ==
Hinata is characterised as shy, thoughtful, serene, kind, and very polite, as noted from her always addressing people with appropriate [[Wikipedia:Japanese honorifics|honorifics]]. She is also very gentle, a trait that Neji and her father used to consider a flaw, and dislikes competing and fighting. She is shown to be incredibly empathetic, and, because of her upbringing, is one of the very first characters who identifies with Naruto's painful childhood and desire to be acknowledged.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 76, page 11</ref>
+
Hinata is soft-spoken and polite, always addressing people with proper [[wikipedia:Japanese honorifics|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.<ref>Chapter 75</ref> 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.<ref name="databook3" />
   
Back in her childhood, as a result of her clan's high expectations as their heiress and her father's gruelling training and him deeming her as a failure, Hinata had become very timid and lacked self-confidence.<ref name="databook3"/> However, she was shown to be a very hard worker (something that her father initially failed to notice), as she continuously strived to change herself for the better, though initially this lack of self-confidence would hinder her on even missions.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 80, page 9</ref> As the series progressed, Hinata became more open about her opinion and confident overall, as she demonstrated a willingness on occasion to take decisive action than ever before. By the time of the [[Fourth Shinobi World War]], her bravery and confidence has extended to the part where she is willing to put her own life on the line for her village, friends, and family.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 526, page 11</ref> The strongest amount of her new found confidence and bravery was displayed after Neji had died where Hinata was able to pull herself together and even keep [[Obito Uchiha]] from getting inside Naruto's head and resolve herself after Neji's death and accept it in the end.
+
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,<ref name="ch78">Chapter 78, page 10</ref> 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;<ref name="c80"/> [[Kiba Inuzuka]] is protective of her, wishing to keep her from harm and playfully teasing her about her personality quirks;<ref>Chapter 78</ref><ref name="c238"/> [[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.<ref name="c80">Chapter 80, page 9</ref>
   
[[File:Hinata talking to Naruto.png|thumb|left|Hinata giving Naruto confidence.]]
+
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 acknowledgement 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's growing self-confidence mainly comes from her long-standing admiration for Naruto, as she was inspired by his enthusiasm, optimism, and his unyielding determination to protect his loved ones. As the series progressed, her admiration towards him grew into genuine care and affection, eventually leading her to fall in love with him. Hinata also has a strong faith in Naruto, believing that he will one day achieve his goal to become Hokage. During the [[invasion of Pain]], Hinata finally confessed her love to Naruto and was also willing to protect him, even at the cost of her own life.<ref name="ch437">''Naruto'' chapter 437 pages 10-12</ref> After Neji was killed by [[Obito]], she pulled herself together despite the pain she was feeling so she could inspire Naruto once more not to give in or give up on himself, reiterating their shared [[nindō]], which showed how far she has come.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 615, pages 5-13</ref>
 
   
Hinata gets along well with her team-mates. [[Kiba]] has become one of her closest friends, and his actions toward her are often motivated by his concern for her, such as when he urged her to forfeit if she was matched against Neji or [[Gaara]] during the [[Chūnin Exams]]. Kiba is also aware of her feelings for Naruto, as he tends to tease her a lot about them by embarrassing her by telling her Naruto is near when he isn't or pointing out when she blushes when thinking about Naruto. [[Shino]] possesses a quiet confidence in Hinata, and will make a point of assuring others when they doubt or worry about her. Hinata is also the close to her [[Kurenai|sensei]], who is not only interested in Hinata's growth as a ninja but also as a person. She knows Hinata's personal struggles and unlike her demanding father, Kurenai tries her best to coach Hinata in ways in which she knows her pupil will best respond. After Hinata was knocked down for the final time by Neji in the Chūnin Exams, Kurenai silently congratulated her student's resolve and perseverance. Like Kiba, Kurenai is aware of her affection to Naruto and encourages her to express herself to him. By the end of Part I, Hinata was able to foster better relations with both Neji and her father and started training with them, as well as growing closer and stronger together as a family.
+
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>
   
== Appearance ==
+
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.<ref name="c526"/> 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;<ref name="c437"/> 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.<ref>Chapter 615, pages 5-13</ref>
[[File:Hinata Hyūga Part 2.png|thumb|150px|Hinata in Part II.]]
 
Hinata has dark blue hair (nearly black in the anime) and fair skin; traits that she inherited from her [[Hinata and Hanabi's Mother|mother]]. She also has the customary white eyes of her clan, which have a tinge of lavender in the anime. She is usually seen with a timid, shy expression in Part I, but less so in Part II, with the exception of when she is around Naruto. Like the rest of her clan, she possesses the renowned [[Byakugan]] which, when activated, stimulates the veins and arteries immediately around her eyes to protrude much more prominently.
 
   
In Part I, her hair is in a short, levelled hime-cut style just above her forehead, with chin-length strands framing her face. She wore a cream-coloured hooded-jacket with a fire symbol on the upper right and left sleeves and fur around the cuffs and hem, with navy blue pants. After earning her genin rank, she wore her Konoha [[forehead protector]] around her neck. At the Chūnin Exams finals, Hinata wore a long-sleeved, light blue blouse with a high collar, and dark blue pants. While at home, she was seen in the traditional Hyūga garb, consisting of a simple, loose-fitting robe with different coloured trimmings, and an under-shirt.
+
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, much to her extreme happiness. 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 yearns 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 believe in them to do things themselves.<ref>''Boruto: Naruto the Movie''</ref>
   
In Part II, Hinata has retained her straight, hime-style haircut, but she has let her hair grow to waist-length. The short strands that frame her face remain, but are now shoulder-length. Her figure has also grown to become much more womanly. She also dons a new attire comprised of a loose fitting, long-sleeved, lavender and cream zip-up jacket with lavender cuffs over mesh armour with navy blue pants and black, low-heeled sandals. Although she still wears her forehead protector around her neck, its colour has changed from blue to black. In one of the [[omake]]s, she is seen wearing a beige apron and light blue scarf tied in a bandanna style. In another omake, she is seen in a casual outfit that consisted of brown capri pants, brown sandals, and a dark green, hood-less jacket with a fire symbol on the upper-right side of her chest. The cuffs of the jacket were rolled up to the middle of her forearms; the inside of the jacket was shown to be cream-coloured. Hinata had a light lavender blouse underneath.
+
== 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 [[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"/> By Part II, Hinata developed a noticeably womanly figure.
   
During the [[Fourth Shinobi World War]], she dons the standard uniform of her village inclusive of [[flak jacket]]. Instead of wearing the forehead protector of the [[Allied Shinobi Forces]], she has seemingly opted not to wear one at all.

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 long-sleeved white shirt underneath, light brown shorts, and purple open-toed boots.

Although she was deemed a failure in Part I by her father, Hiashi, Hinata's new-found resolve enabled her to greatly sharpen her skills, ultimately changing her father's opinion about her and later becoming a [[chūnin]] with the help of her team-mates and sensei under whose guidance Hinata has been able to blossom and develop her abilities.<ref name="databook3"/> During the Fourth Shinobi World War, [[Hiashi]] also considered her strong enough to protect her cousin, [[Neji]] now as much as he protects her.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 526, pages 10-12</ref> Naruto has also praised her strength, recalling how she fought against [[Pain]] when he was incapacitated.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 559, page 6</ref> Like her team-mates, she is a skilled tracker which she uses the extensive sight provided to her by the Byakugan to achieve.

Hinata's gentle personality hindered her performance in the Hyūga clan's training sessions; her father Hiashi considered her to be too weak and unworthy for the role of heiress.<ref>Chapter 78, page 10</ref> After graduating from the Academy, she focused on getting stronger by putting more effort into her training, receiving consistent praise from her team for her improving skills and strengthening character.<ref>Chapter 80, pages 8-9</ref> Hinata thus becomes more willing to face major threats for the sake of others, such as when she fights the [[Deva Path]] during [[Pain's Assault]] to protect [[Naruto Uzumaki]],<ref name="c437"/> which he says proves she's strong.<ref>Chapter 559, page 6</ref> During the [[Fourth Shinobi World War]], she works well with her prodigious cousin, [[Neji Hyūga]], protecting him on the battlefield just as effectively as he protects her.<ref name="c526">Chapter 526, pages 10-12</ref>
   
In the anime, Hinata is shown to be able to use [[medical ninjutsu]], witnessed from her use of the [[Mystical Palm Technique]] to heal the wounded citizens of the [[Hachō Village]].<ref>''Naruto: Shippūden'' episode 293</ref>

Hinata doesn't usually use standard ninjutsu, but by the Fourth Shinobi World War, her [[nature transformation]]s include: [[Fire]] and [[Lightning Release]].<ref name="databook4" /> In the anime, she uses the [[Mystical Palm Technique]] to heal wounded villagers.<ref>''Naruto: Shippūden'' episode 293</ref>

=== Chakra Prowess ===

[[File:Jūho Sōshiken.png|thumb|Hinata channels her chakra into Gentle Step Twin Lion Fists.]]
  +
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]]. With her [[Gentle Step Twin Lion Fists]], she could drain an opponent's chakra.
  +
  +
When she met [[Hamura Ōtsutsuki]], Hinata inherited some of his [[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 transfer his chakra to her. This changes Hinata's chakra from blue to purple and makes her uniquely able to destroy the [[Tenseigan (Energy Vessel)|Tenseigan]]. She is also shown using this chakra to [[Chakra Transfer Technique|replenish]] Naruto's reserves with no signs of exhaustion.

[[File:Hinata's Byakugan.png|thumb|left|Hinata's Byakugan.]]
As a member of the [[Hyūga clan]], Hinata possesses the [[Byakugan]], a [[dōjutsu]] [[kekkei genkai]] which grants her near 360° vision (with the exception of a small blind spot at the upper [[Wikipedia:Thoracic vertebrae|thoracic vertebrae]]), x-ray vision and the ability to see the [[chakra pathway system]]. Hinata can focus her Byakugan's sight to drastically increase its range in one direction up to at least 10 kilometres.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 396, page 5</ref> During the [[Search for the Bikōchū Arc]], she was able to use her Byakugan to magnify and zoom, effectively seeing every small insect in the area, and could also see in [[Wikipedia:Infrared|infra-red]].<ref>''Naruto'' episode 149</ref> Using her Byakugan in a similar fashion, Hinata even accurately fired [[Chakra Needle Technique|chakra needles]] at fast and tiny targets. In Part II, during her fight against [[Guren]], Hinata demonstrates her new mastery of her kekkei genkai; Hinata's Byakugan was at first overcome by Guren's [[Crystal Release: Jade Crystal Labyrinth Technique|crystal labyrinth]], which refracted light to produce many duplicate images of herself.<ref name="ship97">''Naruto: Shippūden'' episode 97</ref> However, Hinata was able to focus on her target and allowed the Byakugan to function enough for her to accurately see Guren's real chakra network and not the reflections.<ref name="ship97"/> It was confirmed by [[Kakashi]] that Hinata can use her Byakugan to see through genjutsu, as he requested her to do so when they fought [[Tobi]].<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 394, page 15</ref> Using her Byakugan, she could help [[Ino]] time and pinpoint her [[Mind Body Switch Technique]] on [[Obito]], saving Naruto, Kakashi, Guy, and B from the [[Ten-Tails]]' [[Tailed Beast Ball]].<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 611, page 11</ref>
+
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.<ref>Chapter 611, page 11</ref> She can also use it in order to identify [[genjutsu]], searching for the caster in the nearby area.<ref>Chapter 394, page 15</ref> In the anime, Hinata's is shown to be able to use telescopic and [[wikipedia:infrared|infrared]] vision.<ref>''Naruto'' episode 149</ref>

With the Byakugan, Hinata is able to see individuals' [[chakra pathway system]]s 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.<ref name="ch78" /> 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.<ref>Chapter 617, pages 12-13</ref> As a genin, 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.<ref>"[[Boruto: Road to B]]", page 2</ref> In the anime, she uses her practised 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.<ref>''Naruto'' episode 151</ref>
[[File:Gentle Fist.jpg|thumb|left|Hinata in a Gentle Fist stance.]]
 
As a member of the Hyūga clan, Hinata specialises in close-range, taijutsu combat. Her fighting style is the signature style of her clan, the [[Gentle Fist]], which takes advantage of the Byakugan's ability to see opponent's [[chakra pathway system]]. It allows her to cause severe internal trauma with minimal external force as it relies on surgical injection of chakra into an opponent's chakra network to cause damage. However, when Hinata is first introduced, she is considered weak by Hiashi Hyūga's standards, being neither as strong nor as fast as Neji or her sister.
 
 
[[File:Eight Trigrams Air Wall Palm.jpg|thumb|Hinata and Neji using the Eight Trigrams Vacuum Wall Palm technique.]]
 
During the timeskip, Hinata improved her taijutsu skills immensely and displays now a large variety of her clan's techniques. When later fighting Pain in the anime, her attacks were strong enough to snap Pain's [[Chakra Disruption Blades]] that were restraining Naruto and also able to strike Pain.<ref name="ep166"/> In the anime's [[Three-Tails Arc]], Hinata performed the [[Eight Trigrams Thirty-Two Palms]], a minor version of the [[Eight Trigrams Sixty-Four Palms]].<ref name="ship97"/> Hinata has also continued to develop her natural flexibility. This was shown while she was battling [[Nurari]] in the anime when she was able to dodge most of his attacks, despite the enemy's elastic body.<ref>''Naruto: Shippūden'' episode 96</ref> She can also [[Collaboration Techniques|collaborate]] with Neji, using [[Eight Trigrams Vacuum Wall Palm]], which is a variation of the [[Eight Trigrams Vacuum Palm]] both of which creates a huge wave of chakra that is targeted at the opponent's vital points.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 521, page 10</ref> Using her Eight Trigrams Vacuum Palm, she was able to react and deflect a few [[Wood Release: Cutting Technique|wooden spikes]] to protect Naruto after he had used up his [[Sage Mode]].<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 614, page 10</ref> Hinata could also use the Gentle Fist to relocate Naruto's dislocated shoulder.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 617, pages 12-13</ref>

[[File:Hakke Kūhekishō.png|thumb|right|Hinata and Neji combining their Eight Trigrams Vacuum Palms.]]
Hinata has also acquired her own original arsenal. In the anime, she developed the [[Protection of the Eight Trigrams Sixty-Four Palms]], a technique that can take advantage of her great flexibility and coordination to both attack and defend at the same time. She also displays the [[Gentle Step Twin Lion Fists]] technique, which much of was not seen in the manga, but in the anime was able to momentarily overwhelm Neji during their training and break Pain's [[chakra receivers]] with ease.<ref>''Naruto: Shippūden'' episode 232</ref><ref name="ep166"/>

During Pain's Assault, Hinata displayed the use of the Gentle Step Twin Lion Fists technique, which she can combine with her regular Gentle Fist attacks to shut down an opponent's chakra network on impact. She also displayed the use of the [[Eight Trigrams Vacuum Palm]] to attack targets outside her physical range or deflect incoming attacks;<ref>Chapter 614, page 10</ref> when performed in [[Eight Trigrams Vacuum Wall Palm|combination with others]], its strength is accordingly increased.<ref>Chapter 521, page 10</ref> 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.<ref>Chapter 633, pages 5-6</ref> She had previously demonstrated a [[Eight Trigrams Thirty-Two Palms|halved version]] of it in the anime.<ref name="NS97">''Naruto: Shippūden'' episode 97</ref>
 
=== Chakra Control ===
 
After the Chūnin Exams, Hinata trained to become stronger, developing in a way which took advantage of her excellent chakra control. The results of this training are shown during the anime's Search for the Bikōchū Arc; she is first seen training beside a waterfall, where she forms an orb of water around herself. She is later shown forming [[Chakra Needle Technique|chakra needles]] that she uses to attack a swarm of bees. Her new-found chakra control can also emit streams of [[chakra]] from her palms to create extremely sharp blades, which can be used to hit any target in her field of vision. Due to her excellent chakra control, Hinata is able to freely manipulate the size and strength of the chakra blades, effectively allowing her to use this technique for offence and defence.
 
 
[[File:Team three sealing.png|thumb|Hinata aiding in sealing the Three-Tails.]]
 
In Part II of the anime, Hinata's chakra control has advanced greatly as seen in the Three-Tails Arc, where her chakra control was mentioned as being at least on par with that of a [[medical-nin]], as she was selected to perform the [[Four-Corner Sealing Barrier]] along with [[Sakura]], [[Ino]], and [[Shizune]]. Ino, although trained as a medical-nin, had difficulty maintaining and controlling her chakra to sustain the seal, unlike Hinata, who managed with relative ease.

=== Prologue — Land of Waves ===
Hinata was first seen along with the graduating class, including Naruto. She silently hoped that she would be on the same team with Naruto though it was to not to be the case, much to her disappointment. However, she obeyed being allocated to [[Team 8]] along with [[Kiba Inuzuka]] and [[Shino Aburame]].

{{main|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]].<ref name="ch78"/>
   
=== Chūnin Exam Arc ===
+
=== Chūnin Exams ===
When the [[Chūnin Exams]] began, Hinata entered with her team-mates in an attempt to change herself. During the first test, she was seated next to [[Naruto]], and when Naruto was struggling to complete the written exam, she offered to let him cheat off her test. However, after seeing the penalty for cheating on a student just behind them, he refused so she wouldn't get in trouble, and because he was too proud to cheat. His inspiring speech at the end of the first test gave her the confidence to not give up, so the proctor, [[Ibiki Morino]], passed everyone in the group who didn't refuse to take the tenth question.
+
{{main|Chūnin Exams (Arc)|l1=Chūnin Exams}}
  +
[[File:Naruto and hinata at first exam.png|thumb|left|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.
   
In the second part of the exam, during the [[Forest of Death]], she and her team-mates quickly managed to get their scroll, becoming one of the first genin teams to do so in that exam. When [[Kiba]] and [[Akamaru]] smelled a second target, they witnessed the [[Sand Siblings]]' confrontation with [[Team Shigure|a team of Ame genin]]. After [[Gaara]] killed the [[Amegakure]] genin, they hid behind a bush, hoping not to be caught and killed.
+
[[File:Team 8 hides from gaara.png|thumb|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.
   
[[File:Hinata vs neji.PNG|thumb|left|Hinata during her fight against Neji.]]
+
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.
In the preliminaries, Hinata had to face her much stronger cousin, Neji, in combat. She almost broke down and gave up after Neji berated her on being a failure that could never change. This angered Naruto, and he encouraged Hinata, giving her the strength to fight her cousin. Despite being outmatched and having her chakra cut off, she continued to fight. Neji was surprised when she refused to give up, even becoming enraged when she accused him of being the weak one who fights what he is. He charged at her, but the [[jōnin]] in attendance restrained him before he could kill her. When Hinata was taken away to the emergency room, Naruto dipped his fingers in her blood and vowed to defeat Neji.
 
   
A month later, Naruto, concerned that he would be unable to defeat Neji despite his vow, ran into Hinata. When he began to doubt himself, she told him that he never gave up, which was something she admired, and that she had become more confident after he cheered for her. This gave Naruto the strength and drive to go face Neji. She later watches his match with Neji but, due to the injuries she received from Neji not being fully healed, Hinata passed out during the match, and did not see the outcome of the match. Kiba gets her medical attention from [[Kabuto Yakushi]], who was disguised as an [[ANBU]]. She is healed, but remains unconscious for the rest of the [[invasion of Konoha]].
+
[[File:Gentle fist.png|thumb|left|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.
  +
  +
[[File:Episode 47.png|thumb|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|thumb|left|Hinata encourages Naruto.]]
  +
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.

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.

[[File:Bikochumo Beetle.PNG|thumb|Team 8 and Naruto searching for the bikōchū.]]
In the filler arcs, Hinata received more screen-time than many other members of the [[Konoha 11]]. In the [[Search for the Bikōchū Arc]], [[Team 8]] and Naruto are sent to capture a [[bikōchū]] beetle that could track [[Sasuke Uchiha]]'s scent a mission that Hinata had insisted on. During the mission she develops her [[Protection of the Eight Trigrams Sixty-Four Palms]], and managed to save Naruto and the rest of Team 8 by using it against hostile bug-users. During the episode, Naruto came across a naked Hinata's silhouette, training in a waterfall at night. Naruto, being oblivious, didn't realise that it was her, and talked to Kiba about how he saw a "beautiful girl" at the waterfall the next day, embarrassing her greatly.
+
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.
   
[[File:The Bounty Hunter from the Wilderness.JPG|thumb|left|Hinata's Naruto-shaped onigiri.]]
+
=== Academy Student Lead Mission ===
In the [[Bounty Hunter Arc]], she accompanied Naruto and Kiba to catch a thief, but because someone else caught him (albeit with their help), the mission was considered a failure.
+
{{main|Academy Student Lead Mission}}
  +
In the anime, Hinata is put in charge of a team of [[Academy student]]s ([[Nobori]], [[Daichi]], and [[Matsuri (Konoha)|Matsuri]]) to teach them survival skills. Very little of their exercise is seen, but Hinata does teach her students how to establish a campsite.
   
As a result of these two failures, Hinata, Naruto, and Kiba were threatened with being returned to the Academy if they did not succeed in finding hidden treasure. The group initially had difficulty working together due to friction between Naruto and Kiba. When they were captured by a group of ninja that could perfectly transform into copies of others, it was up to Hinata to save them and scare them away. She was unable to pursue them because of a leg injury, so Naruto and Kiba did so for her. Hinata later returned, and mistakenly attacked Naruto after he absent-mindedly put down the chest, which had distinguished him from the impostor.
+
=== Gosunkugi Capture Mission ===
  +
{{main|Gosunkugi Capture Mission}}
  +
In the anime, Naruto, Kiba, and Hinata are assigned to catch a thief, [[Gosunkugi]]. Gosunkugi is captured by a bounty hunter before they can catch him themselves, for which reason their mission is officially deemed a failure.
   
In the [[Land of Vegetables]] Arc, she managed to defeat a powerful ninja, [[Jiga]], although she nearly sacrificed her life in doing so. In the Cursed Castle Arc, she helped her team-mates navigate the halls of a strange castle, which was actually a summoned chameleon in disguise, to save a [[daimyō]]'s wife. In "[[Follow My Lead! The Great Survival Challenge]]", the [[Academy Student]]s were divided into teams of three and were assigned to a [[genin]] who would lead them on a mission against the other teams. Hinata was assigned to lead a team of three academy students; [[Nobori]], [[Daichi]] and [[Matsuri (Konoha)|Matsuri]]. Her time with them was not covered much except that she was good at setting up camp and was doing better than Naruto.
+
=== Buried Gold Excavation Mission ===
  +
{{main|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.
   
Throughout the filler arcs, and as was seen at the end of the Part I manga, Hinata developed a much better relationship with [[Hiashi Hyūga|her father]], who encouraged her to do her best after her near-success in the [[bikōchū]] mission. Neji also got along well with her, sparring with her and caring about her well-being. When Naruto left to train with [[Jiraiya]] at the end of the series, she watched him leave, but was unable to bring herself to say goodbye to him. As he left, she vowed to become stronger, and to work as hard as he did.

In Part II, she had attained the rank of chūnin, and was still part of Team 8, renamed Team Kurenai. When Naruto greeted her, she passed out, overcome by the prospect of meeting him for the first time in two and a half years.
+
{{main|Tenchi Bridge Reconnaissance Mission}}
  +
Two-and-a-half years after Naruto left Konoha to train, Hinata heads to a meeting with Kiba and Shino. 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, just when she regained her consciousness, Naruto came to her and asked, very vaguely, to come with him on his mission, telling her "don't say a word and come with me". Hinata misinterpreted the words and promptly passed out again. After this, Hinata asked Kiba if she seemed more grown-up, in the hopes of impressing Naruto. Kiba jokingly teased her, by saying she was still as silly as ever, and then told her that Naruto was behind her, surprising and upsetting her when she discovered it was a lie.

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 Clone]]s, but is then encased in a crystal prison, where she remains until found by [[Team 7]].

{{main|Itachi Pursuit Mission}}
Team 8 was recruited to help Team 7 find [[Itachi Uchiha]]. They split up to try and find his trail, and Hinata was added to Naruto's group. They were soon confronted by [[Kabuto Yakushi]] and Hinata used her Byakugan to see that one-third of Kabuto had been taken over by Orochimaru's remains. Later, when the squad regrouped, they came across [[Tobi]], who appeared to be blocking their path to Sasuke. During the battle that followed, Hinata took the role of stationary scout, using her Byakugan to follow Tobi's chakra signal. When Tobi left after receiving word that Sasuke had killed Itachi, Kakashi instructed Hinata to locate the site of their battle. They tried to reach it before Tobi, but were too late and forced to return home.

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.

=== Pain's Assault ===
After Pain [[Shinra Tensei|destroyed]] the village, Hinata emerged from the rubble without any major injuries along with her bodyguard, [[Kō Hyūga]]. As Kō was not so fortunate, Hinata tried to find him medical attention, but he refused as his only concern was her safety. Once realising that Naruto was fighting Pain all by himself, she attempted to run to his side, but was stopped by Kō, who warned her she'd only be a burden. Just as she seemingly accepted Kō's words, Naruto was pinned down by Pain. She decided to intervene, despite knowing she did not have the ability to defeat him. When Naruto asked why she would throw away her life, she responded that it was because she loved him, which greatly shocked Naruto.

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.
   
In the anime, she was able to remove a few of the [[Chakra Disruption Blades]] that were on Naruto and even land a blow against the [[Yahiko|Deva Path]]. While he did eventually subdue her with [[Shinra Tensei]], he was puzzled why she was willing to fight despite being weakened by his blow. Hinata, crawling near Naruto and still attempting to remove the chakra blade from him, replied by echoing Naruto's words: it is her [[nindō]]. With that response, the Deva Path stabbed her with one of his chakra blades. Enraged, Naruto slipped into his [[Naruto Uzumaki's Jinchūriki Forms#Version 2|six-tailed form]], while a barely conscious Hinata looked on.
+
[[File:Sakura healing Hinata.png|thumb|left|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 receiver]]s 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.
   
As the battle between Naruto and Pain raged on, [[Team Guy]] arrived at Hinata's side, and rushed her away from the battlefield and to Sakura's side. When her wounds were healed, Hinata expressed relief over news that Naruto had defeated Pain. When Naruto came back to the village, she shed tears of joy that he was all-right, and was seen later on smiling as the villagers celebrated Naruto's victory.

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.

In the anime, Hinata is part of a team of reinforcements sent to [[Tonika Village]] to help Team 7 in the fight against [[Kabuto Yakushi]]. Hinata attempts to stop the [[Nine-Tailed Naruto Clone]] from taking chakra from Naruto, but she fails and is saved by Neji.
   
During the [[Invasion of Konoha]], as Neji revealed to [[Team Ebisu]], an unconscious Hinata was abducted by two ninja from Kumogakure who used the chaos as a chance to accomplish what the [[Head Ninja of Kumogakure]] attempted years ago. Though she came to and put up a struggle, Hinata was ultimately saved by Neji and her father.

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.

{{main|Fourth Shinobi World War: Confrontation}}
Hinata and the rest of the Konoha 11, minus Team Kakashi, decided that, in light of Sasuke's criminal actions, they should personally eliminate him before he can involve Konoha in a war. After Naruto was informed of their intentions and met with Sasuke, he told them to leave Sasuke to him. As several of the members voiced their discontentment with this as they feared that Sasuke's actions would incite a war, Hinata watched on as Naruto once again firmly stated that he would handle Sasuke and also tell them everything when the time was right.

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 [[Eight Trigrams Vacuum Wall Palm|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 [[Substitute Technique|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.<ref>''Naruto: Shippūden'' episode 279</ref> On the second day of the war, Hinata helps members of the Second Division escape the area of Neji's fight with the [[Impure World Reincarnation|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.<ref>''Naruto: Shippūden'' episode 305</ref>

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.

In the anime, Hinata had a conversation with [[Shikamaru]] about Naruto when he was in his [[Naruto Uzumaki's Jinchūriki Forms#Version 2|six-tailed form]]. She stated that Naruto transformed in order to protect her, but was concerned about his display of intense rage and loss of control.<ref>''Naruto: Shippūden'' episode 220</ref>

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.

[[File:Naruto gives Hinata power.png|thumb|Hinata at Naruto's side.]]
Hinata was later assigned to the [[Second Division]] of the [[Allied Shinobi Forces]] alongside [[Neji]], [[Kurotsuchi]] and [[Karui]]. She commented that she was a little nervous, while Karui told her that war was nothing to worry about. However, she instantly noted that many ninja didn't trust each other due to years of being each other's enemies which worried her.
+
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]].
   
[[File:Hinata and Neji tag team.png|thumb|Hinata and Neji protecting each other during the war.]]

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]] on a [[Ten-Tails]] [[Ten-Tails Fission|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]].
Hinata's division was deployed to an area where the [[White Zetsu Army]] was discovered travelling underground. When Kurotsuchi and [[Kitsuchi]] used their [[Earth Release: Opening Earth Rising Excavation|technique]] to unearth the army of Zetsu, she and Neji attacked them simultaneously with the [[Eight Trigrams Vacuum Wall Palm]]. Later during the battle, Hinata saved Neji from an attack by a White Zetsu clone.
 
   
At the end of the first day of battle, after Neji collapsed from fatigue, Hinata took his place alongside Shino. When Shino told her not to overexert herself as he already had his [[kikaichū]] scattered around to help detect the enemy, Hinata thanked him and thinking about Naruto, she resolutely told him that failure was not an option as this was a war to protect Naruto.

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.
   
In the anime, she, [[Shino]] and [[Kiba]] were sent to investigate a suspected breach of the Allied Shinobi Forces perimeter and encountered a cave filled with enemy White Zetsu Army forces. Engaging the forces, Hinata sent out a messenger owl to the Sealing Team and she alongside, Shino, Kiba, and Akamaru, hold off the opposition until the team can arrive and seal the cave. When the two members of the sealing team arrived, they immediately began the process to seal the cave, however, as Team 8 escapes, the White Zetsu clones follow, forcing Kiba to attack them. In the process, a lamp was overturned and it lit a trail of oil leading to several crates of explosive tags. With Akamaru unable to douse the flames, the crates exploded with Hinata knocked out as a surviving White Zetsu clone absorbed her to pose as her. After Shino and Kiba snuffed the imposter out, her team-mates found her. Discussing what had transpired, the team's drive to destroy the enemy was renewed after they realised that the enemy had been using Yamato to gain personal intel on them, with Hinata shocked that their foes know of her feelings for Naruto.<ref>''Naruto: Shippūden'' episode 279</ref>

[[File:Hinata Caught.png|thumb|Hinata falls victim to the Infinite Tsukuyomi.]]
  +
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 help Naruto. When Madara cast the [[Infinite Tsukuyomi]] upon the world, Hinata alongside most people are immobilised by the [[genjutsu]] and restrained by the [[God: Nativity of a World of Trees|Ten-Tails' roots]].
   
The next morning, Hinata's division resumed battling the White Zetsu Army clones. While fighting, she was attacked by three White Zetsu Army clones transformed into Kumo-nin simultaneously, but their attack was intercepted by one of Naruto's [[shadow clones]]. After Kiba, Akamaru, Shino and Neji arrived on the scene, Neji demanded that Naruto proved who he is, but Hinata told them that if they looked into his eyes, they would know that he was in fact Naruto. Lamenting the fact that though she wanted to protect Naruto, he ended up saving her instead. However, Naruto saw her sorrow and reassured her that she was very strong, recounting her coming to his aid during the [[invasion of Pain]], which she silently thanked him for. The team then mobilised to finish off the rest of the enemies.

After being informed by [[Inoichi]] from headquarters that Naruto and [[Killer B]] were fighting the "''[[masked Madara]]''", Hinata and the rest of the [[Konoha 11]] rushed to his aid. As she ran alongside Neji, she thought of Naruto and asked him to wait for her, and that instead of running after him, she'd be walking with him, hand-in-hand, once the war had ended. Finally arriving at the battlefield, Hinata guided Ino as she used the [[Mind Body Switch Technique]] to take control of Obito Uchiha, and sent the would-be fatal attack off-course. Hinata then immediately asked Naruto whether or not he was okay, and later stood with the rest of the [[Allied Shinobi Forces]] as they faced their opposition.

Joining her father and cousin on the front-lines, Hinata declared that they would protect Naruto no matter what as he was the key to the final strategy [[Shikaku]] imparted to them to stop the [[Ten-Tails]]. As several projectiles flew towards them, Hinata used the [[Eight Trigrams Vacuum Palm]] to deflect them and watched on as her father later [[Eight Trigrams Vacuum Wall Palm|deflected]] one of the Ten-Tails' arms. When the beast decided to use a pinpoint attack on Naruto, Hinata realised that she would not be able to deflect it in time and was prepared to lie down her life a human shield. However, she found herself protected by Neji as he intercepted the fatal attack. Devastated, as her cousin fell on the battlefield, Hinata openly cried, as he imparted his final words to them and passed away.

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 [[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 they try escaping Konoha with her, but Naruto defeats the puppets and rescues her; the scarf she made is ripped in the battle.

After Obito attempted to shatter Naruto's belief in himself, Hinata reaffirmed Naruto's [[Nindō|ninja way]] by telling him that if his life was connected with everyone who shared his beliefs, and have sacrificed themselves for him like Neji had, and that to stop believing in himself would make their sacrifices in vain. With her words reaching him, Naruto thanked her for staying by his side and took her hand before entering [[Tailed Beast Mode]], the chakra of which also surrounded Hinata. With this, Naruto prepared to face the opposition again, and signalled to Hinata to get ready.

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.
   
[[File:Hinata attacks Ten-Tails.png|thumb|Hinata deflects the Ten-Tails' attack.]]

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.
Amazed by the chakra that had surrounded her, and even further by the fact that Naruto was actually handling such chakra, Hinata later used the [[Eight Trigrams Vacuum Palm]] to deflect one of the beast's tails which was headed towards her — a feat which amazed her father who was awed that the simple form of the technique had produced such a powerful effect. She then turned to see Lee mourning Neji's death and listened on as Obito attempted to decry their beliefs to no avail.
 
   
Charging towards the opposition alongside the others, Hinata used her [[Gentle Fist]] to fix Naruto's dislocated shoulder joint so that he could throw his [[Rasenshuriken]].

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 (Energy Vessel)|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.

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 [[Gentle Step Spiralling Twin Lion Fists|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.

After the attack on Konoha by the [[Land of the Sky]], Naruto was assigned to escort a young girl, [[Amaru]], (whom he had mistaken for a boy) and her sensei, [[Shinnō]], back to their village, with Sakura and Hinata completing the three-man team. Upon arriving, they discovered it to have been attacked as well. A distraught Amaru recklessly ran into the village, accidentally setting off a trap hidden by the enemy. In the aftermath of the trap, Shinnō was tragically wounded in his successful attempt to save Amaru, and after a few weakened words, it was made apparent through Hinata's Byakugan that he was dying, and eventually appeared to succumb to his wounds.

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 [[Kushina|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.
   
Shortly afterwards, the three split up to investigate the area. Hinata was kidnapped and was held prisoner, along with the rest of Amaru's villagers. Thanks to the aid of Amaru, they were able to escape the prison, and eventually the flying island itself, riding aboard a flying boat of sorts down to the ground below. Hinata then became happy as Amaru saved Naruto from falling to his death.

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.
   
However, like her other self, the alternate Hinata is in love with [[Menma (movie)|Naruto]] of her world, but is much more confident and aggressive about it to the point of threatening any girl with Naruto. This includes Sakura who, despite not being attracted to Naruto, is terrified of how bold and aggressive the alternate Hinata is in comparison to the one she knows.

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.

Following an attack on Konoha by the [[Land of the Sky]], Naruto, Hinata, and Sakura are assigned to escort [[Amaru]] and [[Shinnō]] back to their village. When they reach the village, they find it destroyed and Amaru, in her anguish, triggers a booby trap that. Shinnō saves Amaru, but is apparently badly wounded and seemingly dies, which Hinata confirms with her Byakugan. The rest of them split up to investigate the area and Hinata is captured, imprisoned with the rest of the villagers. Amaru later finds them, frees them, and evacuates them to safety.

In later instalments of the [[Clash of Ninja (series)|''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".

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.

Background Edit

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.[8] 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.[9]

Naruto&#039;s first encounter with Hinata

Hinata meets Naruto.

On a snowy day - the day of her enrolment in Konoha's Ninja Academy[10] - 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.[11]

Personality Edit

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.[12] 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,[13] 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;[14] Kiba Inuzuka is protective of her, wishing to keep her from harm and playfully teasing her about her personality quirks;[15][16] 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.[14]

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 acknowledgement of anybody, just as Hinata wants to please her father.[17] 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.[16]

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.[18] 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;[19] 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.[20]

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, much to her extreme happiness. 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 yearns 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 believe in them to do things themselves.[21]

Appearance Edit

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.[22] By Part II, Hinata developed a noticeably womanly figure.

  • 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 Edit

Hinata fights a Ten-Tails&#039; replica

Hinata's gentle personality hindered her performance in the Hyūga clan's training sessions; her father Hiashi considered her to be too weak and unworthy for the role of heiress.[23] After graduating from the Academy, she focused on getting stronger by putting more effort into her training, receiving consistent praise from her team for her improving skills and strengthening character.[24] Hinata thus becomes more willing to face major threats for the sake of others, such as when she fights the Deva Path during Pain's Assault to protect Naruto Uzumaki,[19] which he says proves she's strong.[25] During the Fourth Shinobi World War, she works well with her prodigious cousin, Neji Hyūga, protecting him on the battlefield just as effectively as he protects her.[18]

Hinata doesn't usually use standard ninjutsu, but by the Fourth Shinobi World War, her nature transformations include: Fire and Lightning Release.[4] In the anime, she uses the Mystical Palm Technique to heal wounded villagers.[26]

Chakra Prowess Edit

Jūho Sōshiken

Hinata channels her chakra into Gentle Step Twin Lion Fists.

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. With her Gentle Step Twin Lion Fists, she could drain an opponent's chakra.

When she met Hamura Ōtsutsuki, Hinata inherited some of his 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 transfer his chakra to her. This changes Hinata's chakra from blue to purple and makes her uniquely able to destroy the Tenseigan. She is also shown using this chakra to replenish Naruto's reserves with no signs of exhaustion.

Byakugan Edit

Hinata&#039;s Byakugan

Hinata's Byakugan.

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.[27] She can also use it in order to identify genjutsu, searching for the caster in the nearby area.[28] In the anime, Hinata's is shown to be able to use telescopic and infrared vision.[29]

Taijutsu Edit

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.[13] 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.[30] As a genin, 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.[31] In the anime, she uses her practised 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.[32]

Hinata and Neji combining their Eight Trigrams Vacuum Palms.

During Pain's Assault, Hinata displayed the use of the Gentle Step Twin Lion Fists technique, which she can combine with her regular Gentle Fist attacks to shut down an opponent's chakra network on impact. She also displayed the use of the Eight Trigrams Vacuum Palm to attack targets outside her physical range or deflect incoming attacks;[33] when performed in combination with others, its strength is accordingly increased.[34] 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.[35] She had previously demonstrated a halved version of it in the anime.[36]

Part I Edit

Prologue — Land of Waves Edit

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.[13]

Chūnin Exams Edit

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.

Hinata encourages naruto

Hinata encourages Naruto.

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 Edit

Main article: Konoha Crush In the anime, when the invasion of Konoha begins, the still-unconscious Hinata is kidnapped by Kumo-nin.

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.

Interlude Edit

In Naruto's Footsteps: The Friends' Paths Edit

Main article: In Naruto's Footsteps: The Friends' Paths 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.[37] 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.[38]

Team Kurenai Chūnin Exams

Team 8 awaiting to begin the second stage of the Chūnin Exams.

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.[39] 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.[40] 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.[41]

Team 8 gets lost in a sandstorm along the way.[42] 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.[43]

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.

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 Edit

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

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.

Paradise Life on a Boat Edit

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 Edit

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.[44] 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.[45]

Naruto saving Hinata

Naruto saves Hinata.

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.

Fourth Shinobi World War: Climax Edit

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 Edit

Konoha 11 attacking Obito

The Konoha chūnin attack Obito with the Rasengan.

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.

Hinata Caught

Hinata falls victim to the Infinite Tsukuyomi.

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. When Madara cast the Infinite Tsukuyomi upon the world, Hinata alongside most people are immobilised by the genjutsu and restrained by the Ten-Tails' roots.

The Last: Naruto the Movie Edit

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.

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

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.

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.

Hinata Awakened

"Awakened" Hinata.

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 Edit

  • (To Neji) "I will never go back on my word… Because that too is my nindō, my ninja way!"[47]
  • (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…"[48]
  • (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…"[49]
  • (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…"[19]
  • (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!!"[50]
  • (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!"[51]
