|Anime||Boruto Episode #1|
|Novel||The New Konoha Ninja Flying In the Blue Sky!|
|Appears in||Anime, Novel|
Namida is a sweet and friendly girl. Like most the girls she knows, she has an interest in boys and an love of cute things. She is also rather timid and easily scared. As such, she is very reliant on her friend Wasabi for emotional support.
Namida has brown eyes and hair tied in two long ponytails. She has a beauty mark under her right eye. After graduation, she's sporting an orange forehead protector around her neck.
Namida is able to produce a high-pitch sound wave with her vocal cords. The technique is wide in range and affects both foe and friend, and is strong enough to temporarily knock out everyone in its immediate vicinity. She is able to effectively perform Cooperation Ninjutsu and Fūinjutsu, able to use both to restrict a person's movements and expand the might of this alongside fellow users.
On the day of the entrance ceremony, as everyone began looking for an absent Boruto Uzumaki, he suddenly appeared, crashing a train into the Hokage Monument, which left Namida amazed at his antics.
Later, her class was assigned from Shino to shadow a non-shinobi workplace to better understand its lifestyle. Along with Sumire Kakei and Wasabi Izuno, Namida was injured from a man possessed by the dark mysterious chakra while working at a water purification plant. She was sent to the hospital after being saved by the Seventh Hokage. Namida was then sent home along with Wasabi and seen leaving with her family.
School Trip Arc
Despite her wishes, Namida was to not continue her path to becoming a shinobi after graduation alongside her friend Wasabi, due to family-related issues. However, with Sarada Uchiha's help, Shino was able to persuade her parents to allow Namida to continue her career of choice.
During the exams, taking up Shino's subtle offer to try stealing the test answers for the written test, the students were able to easily pass the test. Later, during the practical and final test, the class was brought to the training field. There, the entire class was set up to face Shino, Anko Mitarashi and Konohamaru for 24 hours. While the teachers would still evaluate the students' respective improvements, the students' true test was against Kakashi Hatake. The Sixth Hokage quickly explained that he would only pass the first student who is able to take the single bell attached to his hip. As the test began, various students quickly became subdued and captured by the proctors.
Later as the remaining students regrouped, Boruto, deeply affected by Kakashi's hard words, apologised to his friends for "failing" them by dragging their performance down with his lazy attitude. However, Namida and all the others insisted that it was because of Boruto that they overcame so many of their problems. Inspired by Namida and the other students' praise, Boruto realised the truth behind the teaches' deceptions. He then conceived a series of plans to pass the test, which the friends all backed up. As her friends made the proctors scatter, Boruto had Namida catch the attention of Anko, whose meek nature quickly became frightened of Anko's blood-thirsty side, making her fearfully scream a sonic wave, which incapacitated the proctor. After successfully saving the other students and eliminating the other proctors, they all helped back Boruto's play against Kakashi. They all attacked Kakashi while disguised as Boruto, but the Sixth Hokage easily blocked their assault. This however was a setup, allowing the team to catch Kakashi in a Multiple String Light Formation. While pinning down Kakashi somewhat, he quickly repelled them with his Lightning Release. Ultimately, time ran out. However, despite no one getting the bell, Kakashi passed all the students as they succeeded at the test's true goal; loyalty and team-work. Later, much to her joy, she was put on Team 15, alongside Sumire and Wasabi.
- In promotional material, her last name was written as "雀野" (Suzumeno).
- "Namida" (涙) means "tear". "雀" (Suzume) means "sparrow", a bird that is featured on the back of Namida's clothing.
