Datsuji and his team took part in the Chunin Exams. They qualified for the second round and went to the Demon Desert. Shira told every other Sunagakure team to stay away as his team would use genjutsu to stop anyone chasing the Datsuji team. But then, Team Guy attacked Datsuji and his team, making Datsuji's team run away.
Datsuji's team decided not to work with Shira anymore. They fought against Shira's team to take their scroll. Team Guy came to help Shira's team and drove Datsuji's team away.
Later, Datsuji's team was chased by Rock Lee. They used genjutsu to keep Lee away and attacked him from a distance. Lee's teammates and Shira's team came to rescue him.
Datsuji's team was defeated, but Shira asked for mercy on their behalf and offered his exam scroll to them. Datsuji's team declined and gave their scrolls to Shira's team and Team Guy instead. They wanted to pass the exam independently by getting another scroll from a different team.
Datsuji is a proud person, but he is also willing to accept when someone else has defeated him. He doesn't let his pride get in the way of recognizing when he has been outmatched. Instead, he shows respect for his opponents and learns from his losses.
Datsuji has bright blue hair and purple markings on his cheeks. To hide his identity and show his loyalty, he wears a blue forehead protector like a bandanna, covering his eyes. He wears a blue shirt that allows him to move freely during battles.
He wraps bandages around his wrists for support and protection. He also wears durable black pants that help him blend into dark environments. His shinobi sandals provide a good grip and allow him to move quietly.
Datsuji is clever and smart. He showed this when he tricked and easily defeated Yome using a flash bomb that produced a blinding light. Yome was weak against bright lights, so Datsuji used this to his advantage. Additionally, Datsuji is skilled in Water Release and can create water needles that can stun his opponents.
