|(日向トクマ, Hyūga Tokuma)|
|Anime||Naruto Shippūden Episode #197|
|Appears in||Anime and Manga|
Tokuma is a calm and level-headed person from all indications. He is also selfless, as witnessed in his willingness to sacrifice himself so that his team-mates could escape from Akatsuki's Surprise Attack and Diversion Platoon.
Tokuma has shoulder-length, spiky brown hair with two long bangs framing either side of his face and the featureless white eyes customary of all members of his clan. He wears the standard Konoha shinobi uniform complete with a forehead protector in bandanna style and flak jacket.
Like all the wielders of the Byakugan he has near 360° of vision as well as the ability to see through objects amongst other things. According to Muta Aburame, he possesses the best Byakugan in his clan.
Five Kage Summit Arc
In the anime, Tokuma, along with Muta and Ranka, are assigned to Anko's team to investigate one of Orochimaru's hideouts and determine Kabuto Yakushi's whereabouts after Sai and Yamato had left the mission. When they arrived, Tokuma informed them of Danzō Shimura becoming the Sixth Hokage Candidate and the invasion of Pain.
Confining the Jinchūriki Arc
While following a trail of corpses left by Kabuto, Tokuma wonders if it was a deliberate action on Kabuto's part as well as his intentions. As the trail seemingly stops outside a desolated area, at Anko's request he scouts ahead with his Byakugan. With shock he alerts the team that he observed Kabuto and a masked man from Akatsuki conversing with each other, before the pair walked towards what seemed to be an underground passageway.
Shinobi World War Arc
He and his team were later seen scouting out the remainder of the Mountains' Graveyard, where he discovered the Zetsu army concealed deep underground, right before the Fourth Shinobi World War began. After seeing they were now on the move, Anko ordered them to report back to base immediately in order to inform the rest of their army, while she remains behind and attempts to infiltrate the hideout. Tokuma, while reluctantly fleeing, identifies an approaching enemy team closing in, provoking him to tell his team-mates to continue their retreat while he holds them off. Tokuma is captured by the Akatsuki team and is forced by Sasori to fight his allies. He was however, later freed by Omoi who cuts Sasori's chakra threads and then carried to Kiri to be healed.
- Tokuma's name could mean something akin to 'period of benevolence' (徳間).
- In his anime début, his outfit and forehead protector cloth were black. However when he is seen again, they are blue.
