Compared to the previous arcs and seasons, Toge’s role in The Shibuya Incident was significantly smaller. He only appeared at the beginning of the season and did not get a lot of screen time. 

When Yuji is on his way to the station to look for Gojo, that is the last time we see Toge. On the way, though, he comes across several transfigured people who are attacking civilians. Yuji, torn between saving Gojo and helping others, runs into Toge, who tells him that he will take care of the humans who have changed, so Yuji can move forward.

Yuta mentions him and tells the higher-ups that he is going to kill Yuji Itadori because he hurt his friend. However, no one knows how he lost his arm.
