Hyuga means toward the sun while Hinata is a pun as it is another way to read this kanji and means a sunny place. Hinata was trained by her father Hiashi Hyuga to become the clans heiress though in time he came to deem her a lost cause. Believing her to be of lesser skill than her younger sister Hanabi Hyuga her father left Hinata in Kurenai Yuhis care once she was assigned to Team 8 claiming he didnt care what happened to her. Throughout her early time in Team 8 Hinatas lack of selfconfidence and unwillingness to fight hamper her abilities. Although she would train to improve her skills she would immediately give up when faced with competition and failed every mission she was assigned as a result. In an attempt to change herself Hinata enters the Chunin Exams where she is pit against her cousin Neji Hyuga in the exams preliminary matches. Neji is quick to ridicule Hinata for her personality traits and attempts to convince her that she is a failure who will never be able to change herself bringing her to tears. Naruto Uzumakis encouragement however empowers her to fight her cousin despite repeatedly being struck down. Although she is defeated Narutos words have a lasting effect on Hinata and she becomes more confident in her abilities and even sticks up for herself by telling Neji that he is the one who is attempting to fight against what cannot be changed. After recovering from her wounds Hinata continues training to prove herself to her father and Naruto. Her efforts are successful in both regards as she is eventually able to acquire a better relationship with her father who encourages her to continue working on improving herself. Naruto has also come to hold her in a higher standing and he tells her that while he had considered her timid and weird before he now views her as a likable person. Hinata has a longstanding crush on Naruto which has been present since their time in the Academy. Her feelings for him are rooted in his determination confidence and strength all of which Hinata lacks. With her affection for Naruto Hinata is constantly willing to break away from her normal personality traits in order to help him. She also becomes more assertive for Naruto and also doesnt hesitate to defend him even to himself. Her feelings for Naruto are one of the driving forces in her selfimprovement as she tries to gain strength in an attempt to both impress him and become like him. When they meet again in Part II Hinata is unable to bring herself to greet Naruto and passes out when he comes to greet her her feelings for him having apparently been amplified during his absence. Despite this she gradually becomes more comfortable around Naruto going from being unable to look him in the eye to being able to talk to him and is able to work with him without difficulty when they are on missions together. As a member of the Hyuga clan Hinata possesses the Byakugan which gives her an almost 360 field of vision. During the Chunin Exams she displays the ability to focus the Byakugans sight increasing the distance that her eyes can see. She also specializes in the Gentle Fist fighting style which allows her to damage her opponents chakra circulatory system and inner organs directly with even a slight tap. In her quest to get stronger Hinata creates a new ability during the animes Bikochu arc called Protection of the Eight Trigrams SixtyFour Palms Shugohakke Rokujyon Sh? a combination of the Hyuga clans most powerful techniques. With it Hinata emits streams of chakra from her palms to create extremely sharp blades that she can use to hit any target in her field of vision. Due to the speed at which these blades move the amount of control she has over them as well as her ability to manipulate their size Hinata can use this technique to attack and defend simultaneously.
