There are plenty of small adorable moments between Naruto and Hinata throughout the series but I have chosen the five which captured my heart.
1. Hinata and Neji’s Fight During Chunin Exam
The change in the expression of Hinata before the fight when Neji was trying to intimidate her proved that the encouragement from Naruto mattered to her as she considers him to be one of the important people.
It was due to the support she received from him because of which she fought bravely till the end. At the end of the fight, she also takes up the same mantra as that of Naruto in her life. She worked hard and didn’t go back on her word, this became her ‘ninja way’ too.
2. Hinata Protecting Naruto During The Pain Arc
While Naruto was pinned to the ground and held by the rods, it was Hinata who came to the rescue knowing already that she was no match for Pain. She manages to break one or two rods in her first attempt but is quickly thrown further away. She claims that it was Naruto who saved her many times from taking the ‘wrong path’.
The wrong path in this context is to give up if the goal does not seem to match up to your inherent capabilities. She confesses her love to Naruto but shortly after Pain uses his Shinra Tensei and she is thrown up in the air and then on the ground due to which she starts bleeding profusely. This dreadful scene enrages Naruto and he lets Kyubi take over him.
3. Neji’s Death During Fourth Great Ninja War
After Neji’s demise, Naruto was unable to process the grief and the loss of a close friend. He could no longer see the purpose of fighting and was about to give up when Hinata Slaps him. She makes him realize that ‘I will never let my comrades die’, the conviction behind the statement was true and that everyone on the battlefield including Neji felt the same conviction in their heart.
If Naruto gave up at that moment, then Neji’s death would mean nothing. It was her who brought Naruto back to his senses and encouraged him in the middle of the battle to not give up. This scene portrayed that both of them could rely upon each other in turbulent times.
4. Naruto and Hinata's First Meeting & Their First Kiss
Hinata was bullied on the very first day of school at the Konoha academy because of her byakugan. Although Naruto comes to her defence but he was beaten up by the three bullies and his red scarf was destroyed by them. Since then she keeps observing Naruto while staying hidden.
From this day onwards she finds Naruto very interesting, this adorable scene was part of The Last Movie and did not disappoint the viewers on the storyline as to how they both meet each other and also the significance of her weaving the red scarf for Naruto to confess her love for him.
The build-up to their first kiss was beautifully done as it showed their growth and love for each other throughout the series with the help of flashbacks in the cave.
5. Naruto and Hinata's Wedding
Naruto and Hinata’s wedding takes place in the final arc of the series. They are joined by their friends and family which make this day more special for them. The scene where Naruto thinks about his father Minato and Hinata thinks about her brother Neji just before their wedding gives a feeling of fulfilment to the series as they both keep their loved ones in heart. Although the wedding is not completely shown in the series but a certain moment is shown at the end of The Last: Naruto the Movie.
Overall, there are many small adorable moments between both of them but the above five are the most memorable ones which clearly showed us the bond between them.
