Chūnin Exam Arc
In the beginning of the Chūnin Exams, Naruto's opinion on Hinata was that she was "weird" and "timid," explaining on how everytime he was near her, she would always stutter and blush.
During the written exams, Hinata sees Naruto struggling to complete his test. She offered her own test as cheating source, but before he responded to her, Naruto pondered if her offer was a trick set by Kiba Inuzuka, her teammate. Realizing Hinata would never do something like that, Naruto nearly agrees, though he does question her on why she would let him cheat off her paper.
In reply, Hinata shyly states 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, only to stop himself at the last moment, as he saw the instructor watching him. Finally, Naruto decided not to cheat off her paper, and told Hinata the reason for him refusing was not only he would get in trouble, but she would. Blushing, Hinata quietly states, "He does care."

However, before she can hand the item to Naruto, he leaves.

She almost fails, due to Naruto not knowing what she was holding, but Kurenai Yuhi aids Hinata, explaining what the ointment was for. Accepting the ointment, Naruto smiles, thanking Hinata.
When Hinata's turn to fight comes, she is matched against Neji Hyuga, her cousin. Though she is discouraged by Kiba and advised to back down from the match, Hinata refuses to do so. Hinata is quickly put down by Neji who continually calls her worthless and tells her that she will always be unable to change herself. However, Naruto shows obvious disagreement and shouts in Hinata's defense. Telling Neji that Hinata will change during their fight, Naruto tells Hinata to defeat Neji. Hinata silently thanks Naruto in her thoughts and the match begins. Sakura Haruno mentions to Naruto that Hinata was quite like him and points out that she was always watching him. Throughout the match, Naruto cheers for Hinata. At one point, Hinata is hit with a hard blow, causing Naruto to nearly break the container of ointment she had given him.
After Hinata is beaten, she lays on the floor, due to Neji's internal hits. Yelling her name, Naruto rushes to her side. Hinata is able to ask him if she changed even a little before soon passing out being carried away and taken to the hospital. With Hinata's blood still on the ground, Naruto grabs some of it, holds it out to Neji and vows to defeat him in her place.
