During the final rounds of the Chūnin Exams, Tsuzumi was one of the ninja guarding the entrance to the arena. When Lee and Guy arrive, he welcomes them and then informs them of Neji's defeat by Naruto.

Invasion of Pain Arc Edit
In the anime, Tsuzumi was with Riichi and several others guards outside the village wall when Pain attacked them. After Pain killed Riichi and the others, Tsuzumi attempted to flee to inform Tsunade of the incident.
