Denka is a ninja cat that lives with Nekobaa at the Uchiha supply base. He first appeared in the Itachi Pursuit Mission. In the arc, Sasuke Uchiha and the rest of Hebi's members (Suigetsu Hozuki, Jugo, and Karin) made their way to the old Uchiha supply base to get some supplies. Denka and Hina were glad to see Sasuke’s face and greeted him, while Suigetsu treated them as normal cats. Denka didn’t like this and hissed at him. On the other hand, Hina asked Sasuke whether or not he bought treats for them.
Sasuke then warned Suigetsu not to treat them like regular cats, or they would tear him apart. He then informed Denka and Hina of the purpose of his visit. They then led Sasuke and his companions to Nekobaa and Tamaki so they could get what they came for. Later, Denka also appeared in Past Arc: The Locus of Konoha.
Denka hasn’t appeared since. Due to his lack of appearance, it is close to impossible to determine his current status. For the time being, Denka is believed to be alive and well until further information comes to light suggesting otherwise.
Denka maintains a calm and pleasant character most of the time. However, he does not like being treated like common cats. When Suigetsu treated him and Hina like regular cats, Denka became outraged and hissed at him.
Denka is a cat with primarily light-colored brown fur and darker patches along his ears, cheeks, paws, and tail. He is dressed in a plain blue kimono with mesh armor underneath that is fastened with a plain white sash. The kanji for "shinobi" (忍) is written on his forehead.
The information regarding Denka’s abilities is unavailable. However, Sasuke mentioned that they would tear Suigetsu apart if he kept treating Denka and Hina poorly.
Denka and Hina are the names of cats owned by Junko Takeuchi, Naruto Uzumaki's voice actress.
