Naruto was way too oblivious to this, although all of his friends seemed to be aware of it. Eventually, during the movie Naruto: The Last, they finally get together after Naruto is made aware of it by his friends.

|Voice Actors||Nana Mizuki (Japanese), Stephany Sheh (English)|

|Village||Hidden Leaf Village|
Hinata was born as the oldest daughter in the upper class of the Hyuga family. She was raised to be the heiress to the Hyuga clan since her father was Hisashi Hyuga, the head of the family.
As a child, Hinata was kidnapped by shinobi from the Hidden Cloud Village. They had infiltrated the village under the guise of a peace treaty and decided to kidnap someone from the noble clans. Hisashi killed the people who tried to kidnap her but his twin brother voluntarily took the blame for it and was killed in the process.
Since Hinata was raised with the intention of being the clan’s head, the family had high expectations of her. However, she was incredibly soft and did not want to hurt anyone. So much so, that when Hinata was pitted against her sister Hanabi, she lost because she could not hurt her.
As a child, when she joined the academy, she was picked on by bullies due to her unique eye colour. Naruto Uzumaki saw this and defended her, but got knocked out in the process. Ever since then, Hinata developed a crush on Naruto and started watching him. The elders of the Hyuga clan noticed this and warned Hinata to stay away from him but this did not affect her feelings towards him.
After graduating the academy, she joined Team 8 alongside with Shino Aburamay, Kiba Inuzuka and Akamaru with Kurenai as their leader. The team eventually entered the chunin exam, where Hinata was brutally defeated by her cousin, Neji Hyuga. Naruto Uzumaki makes an oath to defeat Neji during the finals of the chunin exam, which he follows through with and this raises Hinata’s feelings for Naruto even more.
During the Pain assault on the hidden leaf, Hinata uses her Byakugan to see that Naruto had been almost defeated by Pain. Without a second thought, the timid Hinata jumped to Naruto’s rescue but gets severely hurt by Pain. This causes Naruto to trigger his Kyuubi mode, which essentially helped him beat Pain and win the battle.
Later on, after the Fourth Ninja War, Hinata tries to confess to Naruto. However, since he is too oblivious, he does not make the connection. Later on, he realises Hinata’s feelings for him and acknowledges it while asking her to marry him. They have two children together, Boruto Uzumaki and Himawari Hyuga.
What are the abilities, Chakra and Physical Prowess of Hinata?
Due to the training received from the Hyuga clan at an extremely young age, Hinata has immense chakra control. It is to such an extent that she can make needles out of water and use them as projectiles. The amount of chakra control that is required to make something as fluid as water into projectiles is nothing short of commendable. She also inherited chakra from Hamura when she met him.
The Hyuga clan is incredibly experienced in taijutsu since most of their techniques revolve around finding chakra points and hitting them to block chakra flow through the body. Although Hinata hadn’t mastered it in the early stages of life, she learns how to use it regardless later on and because of this, her physical prowess is also commendable.
Hinata also has a lot of Ninjutsu in her arsenal including Fire and Lightning style. She can also use healing jutsu thanks to her immense chakra control.
Due to being born as a Hyuga, Hinata has a lot of Ninjutsu that she has learnt over the years. These do not have much screen time in the anime, but she still has her moments.
Byakugan: This visual prowess is seen on both of her eyes. It is said to provide 360 degree X-Ray vision, with only a tiny blindspot. Upon activating it, the veins around her eyes pop out. When it is deactivated, her eyes stay white.
Twin Lion Fist: She personifies two lions on her arms and hits the opponent using Taijutsu. The Twin Lion Fist adds more impact to their hits.
Mystical Palm Technique: This technique is used to heal people. Hinata is seen using this technique during the war.
Protecting Eight Tiagrams, 64 Palms: Hinata uses this ability to deflect any attacks that is aimed inside the circle while protecting anyone inside it.
This fight was a true tearjerker for many. Hinata protects Naruto from Pain while confessing her love to him.
Although this fight wasn’t much of a display, it still showed the difference in personalities between Hinata and Neji. It was also a driving force for Naruto to win.
Although this is not exactly a 1v1 fight, it shows how much progress she made throughout the years which shocked everyone.
"I can see that you are suffering more than me... You are the one who is confused and suffering inside the fate of the head and branch families."
“You make mistakes. But... because of those mistakes... you get the strength to stand up to them. That's why I think you are truly strong!”
“I will never go back on my word, because that too is my ninja way!”
"I wanted to walk beside you all the time. I just wanted to be with you. You changed me! Your smile is what saved me!"
"I'm a terrible big sister, aren't I"
A. White eyes are a sign of the possession of the Byakugan, a Kekkei Genkai.
A. Byakugan users are not blind. On the contrary, they can see more than the average eye, with almost 360 degree vision.
A. Both the Visual Prowesses have their own advantages and it is not fair to compare the two. The Byakugan gives the weilder complete vision while the Sharingan tracks the opponent's movements easily.
