|Novel||The New Konoha Ninja Flying In the Blue Sky!|
|Appears in||Anime, Novel|
Wasabi has short, spiky brown hair and green, cat-like eyes. Her outfit consists of a light green, sleeveless hoodie shirt, that is cropped with a mesh attire underneath, and puffy green shorts. She also dons a cat tail, attached to her waist, and, after graduation, is seen sporting a dark green forehead protector.
After graduation, Wasabi changes her attire to a sleeveless green hooded vest over a mesh shirt, brownish green shorts with mesh leggings and brown shoes. She is still seen sporting a cat tail.
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 fūinjutsu to restrict a person's movements.
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 Rock, which left Wasabi amazed at his antics. During the Summoning Technique class, Wasabi showed excitement in the prospect of being able to summon her own animal of choice, but was disgusted by the choices the boys made in terms of their personal preference of summons.
Later, her class was assigned by Shino to shadow a non-shinobi workplace to better understand its lifestyle. Along with Sumire Kakei and Namida Suzumeno, Wasabi was injured by a man possessed by dark mysterious chakra while working at a water purification plant. She was sent to the hospital after being saved by Naruto Uzumaki. After being discharged, Wasabi and Namida were seen leaving with her families.
School Trip Arc
Wasabi was very upset with Namida when she found out that the latter decided not to continue her career of becoming a shinobi. Thanks to Sarada and Shino's help, however, Namida's parents gave her the permission to pursue her career of choice, rekindling the girls' friendship.
During the exams, taking up Shino's subtle offer to steal the test answers for the written test, Wasabi was able to pass the exam. Later, during the practical test, Wasabi and Namida were quickly knocked out by Konohamaru. When the remaining students regrouped, Boruto apologised to his friends for "failing" them and devised a series of plans to pass the test, which involved Wasabi teaming up with Metal Lee for an initial assault to make the proctors scatter. After successfully playing their part in rescuing the captured students and eliminating the other proctors, Wasabi lent a helping hand in Boruto's fight against Kakashi, lending her chakra for a cooperative fūinjutsu to pin the Sixth Hokage down long enough for Boruto to grab the bells. Ultimately, the strategy was unsuccessful due to a time 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, she was put on Team 15, alongside Namida and Sumire.
