|Anime||Naruto Shippūden Episode #192|
Sekiei and Mikage were spectators from Kumogakure who were watching the final rounds of the Chūnin Exams. When the Konoha Crush by Suna and Oto began, they took the opportunity to kidnap Hinata Hyūga for her Byakugan. The Hyūga Elder tried to save her but they escaped before he was able to get to them. He was later knocked unconscious by an Otogakure ninja. Neji Hyūga, Tenten, and Kiba Inuzuka trailed the two ninja outside the village limits and Kiba rescued Hinata after she struck the short spectator. Neji, disguised as Kiba, had the Kumo ninja following him with a decoy Hinata while Kiba took Hinata to safety. After defeating the first ninja, Neji fights against Sekiei but struggles against his Earth Release technique that had bound both his hands and feet. Neji was saved by Hiashi Hyūga who subsequently defeats the ninja with the Eight Trigrams Vacuum Palm technique. After their defeat, they were captured and questioned.
