Chūnin Exam Arc
In chapter 39, episode 23. In the beginning of the Chunin Exams, Naruto thought Hinata was weird and timid, explaining on how everytime he was near her, she would always stutter and blush.During the written exams, Hinata saw Naruto struggling to complete his exam. She then offered him to cheat off her test. Before he responded to her, He thought to himself if this was a trick set by Kiba and Hinata had agreed to do it. Then he rethought to himself, Hinata would never do something like that. He asked her why would she let him cheat off his paper. Hinata shyly said that it would be nice for all of the nine rookie ninja to stay together. Naruto smiled, and was about to cheat off her test. But then he saw an instructor watching him. Finally, Naruto decided not to cheat off her paper, and told her the reason for him refusing was not only he would get in trouble, but so would she. Hinata blushed and said to herself, "He does care."
During the second phase of the Chuunin Exams, Hinata was signing the paper that Anko told them to sign, alone by herself in the back. Naruto then found her, and asked why she was by herself. She said she was fine, when she saw a cut on Naruto's face she then started to dig in her pocket. Naruto then left, while Hinata was holding some of her clan's ointment. She then sighed, and told herself that she could use it later.
After Naruto and Kiba's fight during the preliminary matches, Hinata attempted again to give him some of her ointment. She almost failed, due to Naruto not knowing what she was holding. Kurenai then helped out Hinata, saying that it's an ointment, and that it could help Naruto recover from the injuries that Kiba caused. Naruto then smiled, thanking Hinata. He then used it, seeing on how it made him recover so quickly, complimenting on the ointment. Kakashi then thought to himself that it was actually the Nine-Tails that helped Naruto to heal himself faster.
When it was Hinata's turn to fight, she was supposed to fight Neji. She gave a scared look, despite not having any confidence in herself that she would win. Neji then began to tell Hinata that she couldn't change the person that she already was. That she would always stay timid and shy.Hinata then said that she would try to change herself while fighting Neji, confidence going into herself, but Neji quickly put her down. Naruto then yells that people can change, and that Hinata will change. Then Naruto tells her to "go ahead" and beat Neji. He then looks at her. Hinata thanks him in a thought. Then their fight begins. When the two begin their fight, Sakura mentions to Naruto that Hinata is a lot like him. Naruto is shown to cheer everytime Hinata supposedly hit Neji with one of her attacks, but she usually misses her attacks at him. Once when, Hinata is pushed down many times by Neji, Naruto grips Hinata's oinment, almost breaking the container.
After Hinata is beaten, she lays on the floor, due to Neji's internal hits, aiming at her heart and core. Naruto then yells her name, running towards her. He looks at Hinata, and asks if she is okay. Hinata weakly asks if she changed during her fight even a little, before passing out. Naruto then looks at her, upset. Neji then tells Naruto that people can't change, proving himself right using Hinata as an example. Naruto then runs over to Neji, about to fight him, but Lee jumped in to stop him and told him that he could fight Neji later, or unless himself get Neji. Then Naruto walks over to Hinata's blood, and puts his hand in the blood. He vows that he will win his fight with Neji, for Hinata.
He does eventually get partnered with Neji to fight with during the last phase of the Exams. Before his fight in the Chuunin Exams with said Hyuuga, Hinata admits that she admires him despite his imperfections because he's able to keep trying. Before Naruto leaves, he tells her that he used to think that she was a plain-looking dark wierdo and that he really likes people like her. During Naruto's fight against Neji, Hinata is seen rooting for Naruto, but due to her wound not yet recovered from her fight with Neji she ends up fainting and missing the rest of the fight. After Neji talks a bit about his personal life, Naruto stands up for Hinata by saying that he's not the only one who is special, and that Hinata suffered as much as he did.

Naruto immediately remembered Hinata and asked Katsuyu if he destroyed Hinata and the rest of the villagers. Katsuyu told him that none of the villagers were harmed by his attacks. Naruto put his hand over his heart, shedded tears in relief, and said to himself, "Thank God...Thank God." In the next panel it is revealed that Hinata was calling out his name as she lays on the ground, severely injured.

Much later in the war, the Hyuuga clan protects Naruto against the Juubi, and at one moment Hinata shields Naruto against the Juubi's attack risking her life, but Neji protects both of them. After Neji's death (note that he also tells Naruto that Hinata's willing to give her life away for him), Hinata then snaps Naruto out of his shocked state and encourages him.

Hinata thought about Naruto while fighting Neji - Chapter 80:
- "Naruto-kun... I have always watching you... Watched you for all these years!! Why is that?... I don't know why but... When I look at Naruto-kung... I feel courage... I feel that if I try my best... Even I can do it... That I am worth something... That's how I begin to feel. Naruto-kung... In the past I was the only one looking... But right now... you are...

What inspired Neji and carried him this far were those very principles! It's not just you, Naruto.. we all hold those same words and feelings within our hearts. They're what binds our lifes together and makes us comrades. If we all give up and discard those words and' feelings now, Neji's sacrifice will have been for nothing...And that is when you comrades truly die, for you are no longer comrades then. That's how I feel... Therefore..stand up together with me, Naruto..Because never going back on one's word.. is my ninja way too!! "
