The Hyuga clan was one of the main clans forming Konohagakure. Most of them are characterized by grey/light-colored eyes. They're known for their kekkei genkai, the byakugan, which is a form of dojutsu.

The byakugan grants its wielder an augmented field of vision. I think it's almost 360 degree vision except for a small spot on the back of their head. Similarly to the sharingan, the byakugan is also capable of perceiving chakra, but can also find chakra points. Because they can perceive those chakra points, they've also built a fighting style revolving around those: gentle fist. This fighting style mainly focuses on close-ranged combat where the user hits a target's chakra point with chakra-enhanced fingers of palm, blocking the target's chakra paths among other things and basically inflicting internal physical damage.

Good, you touched on a few good points in regards to the abilities of the clan and the lore. Now lets dive deeper in terms of details what are all the passive and or innate capabilities of the Byakugan. You mentioned 360 degree vision what else is there?

The byakugan also grants its user the ability to see through objects, like walls. We also become able to follow and read quicker body movements so an increase in our tracking speed (equivalent to 3T sharingan's tracking speed?). A byakugan user can also recognise where chakra signatures originate from, so you can tell if a "character" is a clone or not. And we can also see people's chakra pathways and tenktetsu.

Sorry for the late reply, didn't have access to internet for some time. Feel free to remind me on discord if need be.

As for the Byakugans perks, you can also see two landmarks away using your enhanced vision.

(Dōjutsu: Byakugan) Eye Technique: The All Seeing White Eye
Type: Supplementary
Rank: C
Range: Short-Long
Chakra: 15 (+5 per turn to keep active)
Damage: N/A
Description: The kekkei genkai intrinsic to both the Hyūga and Ōtsutsuki clans—descendants of Kaguya Ōtsutsuki. Those who possess this dōjutsu have it manifested as eyes with featureless white irides and no visible pupils. And when activated, the pupils become more distinct and the veins near their temples bulge. To activate the dōjutsu, Hyuga but not Ōtsutsuki clan members are initially obliged to use a rather long and specific sequence of handseals: Horse → Tiger → Boar → Hare → Rat → Dog → Horse → Dog → Hare → Rat → Boar → Snake. But once activated, the dōjutsu user is endowed with a range of skills.

To start, an activated Byakugan gives the user a near 360º diameter field of vision bar one blind spot at the back of the neck, above the first thoracic vertebra. Its vision can penetrate through any solid objects or obstructions, and likewise remains unaffected by blinding interferences. But that being said, certain barriers and the like may distort its perception. In addition, it is able to follow high-speed movements, which enables those with this dōjutsu to analyze their foes' actions and better react to them. The Byakugan is also able to see chakra to a higher degree than the Sharingan and ergo, identify where a person's chakra signature originates from. Beyond that, it can discern certain types of clones from the real person. And its ability to see chakra is in fact so acute that those who possess this dōjutsu are even able to see the chakra pathway system and the 361 tenketsu that comprise it. The Hyūga clan has gone so far as to develop their unique Gentle Fist style in order to capitalize on this particular ability.

Note: Hyuga clan bios of at least Sannin rank become able to passively activate their dōjutsu upon one month having passed since Gentle Fist training concluded. Ōtsutsuki bios never need to expend a move in order to activate it.
Note: While traversing the NW, bios with activated Byakugan are able to see up to two 2 adjacent landmarks away while those of sage rank can see as far as three away, but this doesn't extend beyond an ocean landmark.


Take a good look, as if you have any questions.

It's cool, thank you for letting me know.

As for the byakugan perks, I've now checked the thread you've linked to me and have no questions.

I moved houses a couple of years ago too so I know the struggle.

So gentle fist is a fighting style developed out of Hyuuga's gift of being able to see people's chakra pathways and their 361 tenketsus. Gentle fist mainly aims to damage the target's body from the inside, contrary to normal taijutsu which begins by damaging from the outside. The style revolves around hitting their target on these tenketsus with great speed and precision while releasing a burst of chakra from their fingertips to effectively damage the target's chakra pathway, disrupting their normal flow of chakra. Beside damaging the target, this can also hinder the target from properly performing ninjutsu and genjutsu techniques. One can also perform gentle fist with the usage of palm strikes while releasing bursts of chakra into the target enabling the user to damage a target's internal organs in general. Gentle fist doesn't really have much power behind it physically, it is the bursts of chakra and the speed and accuracy at which they're aimed towards particular parts of a target's body that makes gentle fist harmful.
