Wasabi has short, spiky brown hair and green cat-like eyes. Wasabi wears a light green sleevless hoodie shirt that is cropped with a mesh attire underneath and green puffy shorts. She often wears a cat tail attached to her waist.
Wasabi is able to enhance her speed by applying cat-like traits to her body, and has been considered among the two fastest shinobi in her Academy class. Additionally, she can use Medical Ninjutsu to heal injuries, though she's regarded as not being cut out for it. 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.
Later, her class was assigned from Shino to shadow a non-shinobi workplace to better understand its lifestyle. Along with Sumire Kakei and Namida Suzumeno , Wasabi 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 Naruto Uzumaki. Wasabi was then sent home along with Namida and seen leaving with her family.
School Trip Arc
Wasabi was very upset when she had found out that Namida decided not to continue her career of becoming a shinobi. Thanks to Sarada and Shino's help, however, Namida's parents gave her permission to pursue her career of choice, rekindling the girls' friendship.
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, Wasabi and all the others insisted that it was because of Boruto that they overcame so many of their problems. Inspired by Wasabi 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. Wasabi joined Lee in an initial assault to make the proctors scatter, bettering their chances. 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.
