The Hyuga clan is one of the brawny clans among the aristocratic clans of the Konohagakure (Hidden leaf village). They are the direct descendants of Hamura Ōtsutsuki from the Ōtsutsuki clan. Hyūgas are mostly known for their dōjutsu ability of Byakugan. No one else has the powerful Byakugan other than Hyūgas that’s why many have tried to steal theirs as they are the real owners of Byakugan.
Hyuga Clan’s History
The Hyuga clan is the primeval clan on Earth. The Hyūga clan is divided into two fam- the main family and the branch family. Years ago two brothers of the clan had a dispute over the heir of the clan. They fought one on one to decide the main head of the clan.
The winner got to lead the clan and in order to protect himself and his family from future harm brought by the loser, he devised a cursed seal on the branch family which helps the main family members to control or punish the branch family members. Later, when Naruto married Hinata, he requested the clan leader Hiashi Hyūga to abolish this main and branch family system to bring peace and unity.

Hyuga clan’s Powers
The Hyūga Clan is popularly known for its dōjutsu abilities. Being the descendants of the Hamura Ōtsutsuki, they have inherited the powerful Kekkei Genkai and other unique abilities.
Hyuga Clan Eye Power
Byakugan is one of the “Three Great Dōjutsu”. Byakugan is a Kekkei Genkai that grants its wielder the ability to have a 360 degree vision. It gives the ability to see through solid and far away objects very easily. Byakugan also provides the potential to see through the chakra network. It gives an enlarged view of the chakra and its flow.
Tensegan is another eye power that is only seen in Hamura Otsutsuki and later in Naruto Movie in Tonari Otsutsuki. In fact, this was made by removing all the Byakugan by Hamura. This allowed the Otsutsuki to make a civilized colony in the Moon (as seen in the Naruto Movie). Similar power was seen in Boruto who runs, Usukami and Hyuga’s blood. The Tensegan has an amazing ability that gives sage mode power and amazing chakra.
