Makoto Hyuga (日向 マコト, "Hyūga Makoto") is a fictional character from the Neon Genesis Evangelion franchise. He is a First Lieutenant at NERV and one of the three main computer technicians directly serving under Commanders Ikari and Fuyutsuki in the command post of Central Dogma, the others being Aoba and Ibuki.
Hyuga at first gives the impression of being something of an otaku, reading manga while on his break time, but is a highly skilled technician. His quick thinking and bravery help save NERV Headquarters from the attack by Matarael, and he acts as a spy for Misato, helping her obtain information regarding NERV's machinations. The true extent of his feelings for Misato is shown in The End of Evangelion as Rei/Lilith takes the form of Misato during Instrumentality and passionately kisses him; his body reverts to LCL.
