During Pain's attack on the village, Muta joins Shino and Shibi to confront Konan. They use their kikaichu to eat the paper that Konan used to wrap around the ninjas and Katsuya healed them. When they realize that they're surrounded by Konan's clones. Shibi and his clan members send their insects to destroy their clones which were actually detonators.
During the Fourth Great Shinobi War, Muta used his shokaichu to gather intel and he got to know that the Akatsuki had living organisms underground. He asked Tokuma to use his Byakugan to look underground to see what was down there. Those turned out to be an army of White Zetsu, and Anko told Muta that he should inform the Allied Shinobi Forces about this information.
As they were on their way, he prayed that Anko should be safe. When they are on the way, Tokuma detects an enemy and tells Muta to go ahead while he fights them off. Muta uses his insects to confuse the sensors and then tells his Kikaichu to take a scroll containing the information back to the Allied Shinobi Forces.
Muta is then captured by Sasori. He is used as bait to attack the Surprise Attack Division. As someone else rushed to help him, he tells them to get away from him and is then forced to hold him as hostage. After they realize that he was under the enemies control, Kankura is able to get them to back off in time as Deidara detonates the explosive clay that was in Muta's insect jar, killing him.
Just like his clan members, Muta is a person who cares deeply about his village, his comrades, and his clan's members. He would always carry out his missions perfectly. He is very calm under pressure too. He is methodical, analytical and also very intelligent, which was quite helpful during the Fourth Great Shinobi War.
Muta had long brown hair and he always wore sunglasses with a longm sleeved tan jacket that had a high collar. He also wore a harness fastened to the back of his outfit in which he used to carry his gourd which contained his insects.
As an Aburame, Muta breeds a special breed of insects known as Kikaichu that lives on his body and feeds off his chakra. He uses them to attack in a huge area, cornering his opponent and draining out their chakra. He uses them as jamming signals to confuse sensors. He also bred another species of insects called shokaichu which he uses to gather information, locate chakra signals and report back to him.
