Hinata was my best character in both games. She was great for throwing (her grabbing range was greater than most people think), and her special attacks in the second game involved the rapid button pushing, which was about as easy as button combos, and way easier than thumbstick rotation. She is also pretty fast, which makes up for her relatively weak attacks. Also, being my favorite character in the show, I used her more than any other character and so had more experience with her. In some missions, you would have to defeat your opponent when they had no chakra, and the Byakugan was really nice for those missions.
