%%* {{Keet}}

to:

%%* IdiotHero
%%* {{Keet}}
* IdiotHero: Besides being BookDumb, Hinata is usually clueless about the topic at hand.
* {{Keet}}: He does ''not'' run out of energy. This isn't helped by the fact that he's frequently mistaken for a junior high-school student because of his height.

%%* PintsizedPowerhouse

to:
