Minoji has short, untidy black hair held back by his forehead protector as well as two green lines running from each end of his eyes towards his ears. He wears a grey high-collared jacket suit along with a pair of grey pants.
He and the rest of his team made it to the second phase of the Chūnin Exams. When they started to lose hope in completing the round, he and Shibire decided to read their scroll, leaving them knocked out and unable to complete the exams.
Naruto's Back: Friends' Tracks
In the anime, Minoji is one of the participants in the joint Chūnin-exam held by Sunagakure and Konohagakure, being placed in room 2 during the first test. The proctor Shikamaru Nara explained that every member of the respective teams only needs to answer one single question on the test. However, their combined score with their team-mates will determine if they pass or fail the exam, since they need exactly 100 points to pass — every higher or lower score leads to disqualification. Unclear how to solve the problem, Minoji heard the genin from room 1 calling their comrades, leading him to desperately scream their names as well.
- In the OVA Mission: Protect the Waterfall Village!, Minoji is depicted as a shinobi from Takigakure.
