Shinobi World War Arc
Realising that Muta is acting strangely, he activates his Byakugan and discovers that Deidara's explosive clay is in the jar instead of kikaichū. He alerts everyone to this fact and Ittan reacting immediately, takes protective-evasive action and lowers the earth they are on. As the two ambush squads clash, Hoheto and Tango reach to Tokuma and Ranka just as he they had been freed from Sasori's control and carries Tokuma to Kiri to be healed. Taking up the rear guard along with Tango, he later warns everyone that Deidara had turned Shin into a bomb alerting them in time for them to take evasive action.
Later he and the part of his division encountered a back up for the Surprise Attack and Diversion Platoon. When they tried to flee from it they are hit with Ibuse's Poison Mist and succumb to its paralysing effects. They are however rescued by the samurai of the Fifth Division who carry them to the medical unit for treatment.
Keeping an eye on Deidara and the other sealed shinobi, Hoheto witnessed as the Impure World Resurrection is released.
- Hoheto might come from the first seven syllables of the Iroha: I ro ha ni ho he to.
- In his Naruto: Shippūden episode 256 début, Hoheto was erroneously depicted with black eyes. This was fixed in subsequent depictions.
