  • Cute and Silly

    This episode is more of an omake than a true episode. It's a silly episode as it can be told by the episode screen's style. (The writer of the episode that did Episode 101 did this one). Naruto trains in the woods and picks up more than a sweat. He gets a cute companion that thinks Naruto is his mother. Through silly and funny screens of Sakura, Tsunade, Shizune, Akamaru, Kiba, Lee and Hinata this can be sure an episode to keep you either laughing or smiling at it.

    I personally thought this was one of the funniest parody episodes in the series, as I said the writer of episode 101 where they tried to see Kakashi's true face, and the other episode where Naruto tried to make Tsunade pay a debt prior, did this one. So it's guaranteed to be funny. :Pmoreless
  • A nice silly episode....

    While Naruto is training on his own, an eagle catches a baby onbaa. As it flies over him, Naruto accidently attacks due to which the onbaa latches on to Naruto's back without him realising it. When he returns to the Leaf Village and is talking to Sakura, then he realises that a cute looking creature is stuck to his back. Kiba tries pulling it off but it stays put. They go to Tsunade for help. Tsunade then tells the legend of the onbaa and that it stays stuck to the person it sees first thinking that person is his mother. This was just the begining of Naruto's problems. They also grew upto 9 feet! As time passes Naruto becomes fond of him, but Tsunade tries to sperate them by sending them to a mission during which they meet up with its real mother. Naruto gives the onbaa back to its mother( but after quite some running). Meanwhile, back in the village, everyone has got an onbaa and you can be sure that Naruto won't tell them how to get it off.moreless
  • On the way back from the village an eagle dropped an onbaa on Naruto's back the onbaa thought Nauto was it's mother Naruto became friends with it until, the real mother came.moreless

    Naruto was walking back from his training meanwhile an eagle had something in it's claws and dropped it on Naruto. Naruto came back and saw Kiba and Sakura. Sakura saw two arms coming from Naruto's armpits. A face came and it said "onbaa" Naruto had no idea what it was so he freaked out and ran to Tsunade she said that it was an onbaa and onbaa are animals raised on their mothers back. Because it was on naruto's back it thought Naruto was its mother. Tsunade said they grow to be 9 feet tall and Naruto freaked out once more. Naruto named the onbaa Onbaa. Tsunade told Naruto to go fight mountain bandits hoping the Onbaa would get killed but, it didn't. On the way back to the village the onbaa's mother came and took back Oonbaa. Back at the village everyone had an onbaa on their back.moreless
  • Naruto gets an Onbaa stuck on his back.

    Naruto is training in the forest when an eagle is passing overhead and out of instinct, Naruto throws a kunai at it. He causes the eagle to drop what it was carrying onto his back. We later find out that this is an Onbaa. A creature that people think is a legend, a giant ape and bear-like creature. Naruto doesn't find out that it is there until he gts to the village and Sakura points it out to him. Tsunade remembers when Jiraiya went off in search of the monsters when they were still training under the 3rd Hokage. It seems...moreless
  • Cool and silly episode

    First Naruto is training in the woods and an Onbaa gets on his back. Now Naruto is a mother even though he is a male which made it look totally funny. Second Tsunade is telling the story about the Onbaa's and Jiraiya goes into the woods and brings back drawings of it that he defeated it and that was totally funny and I laughed like crazy at it. Last but not least comes the end when the whole village is full of Onbaa's and sticking on there backs. But before that Sakura punches Naruto and she is so angry at him and that was funny also. I give this episode a 10 out of 10.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • The title card in the edited version of the English dub misspelled the title of this episode to be "A Legend of the Hidden Leaf: The Onbaa!" instead of "A Legend from the Hidden Leaf: The Onbaa!". However, Naruto still said the title correctly when he shouted it out.

    • Onbu's growth changes from scene to scene. Sometimes he's bigger and sometimes he's smaller.

  • QUOTES (26)

    • Naruto: (Laughing hysterically) You should see the look on your face.
      Tsunade: The Onbaa are no longer a legend, are you happy? They're mating like rabbits outside the village and the eagles are scooping them up and dropping them here. (A young onbaa appears on Tsunade's back) Naruto, how do you get rid of these things? Tell me!
      Naruto: Hard to say. There's a bit of wrestling involved, maybe you should try that.

    • Naruto: All right, you bandits, open up!
      (Gate opens)
      Bandit #1: Who are you, you little snot?
      Bandit #2: Yeah, kid.
      Bandit #3: What're ya doin here?
      Naruto: You're lookin' at Naruto Uzumaki and Onbu. You jerks ready?
      Bandit #1: Say what?

    • Naruto: Spill it, Hinata, what's up?
      Hinata: Uh, well, it's just I've heard this weird rumor.
      Naruto: Really, how weird?
      Hinata: People are saying... Well... You have a baby with you?
      Naruto: Oh, you mean this guy?
      Onbu: Onbu! Onbu!
      (Hinata faints)
      Naruto: Huh? Hinata!

    • (Lee comes up by Naruto carrying several bags)
      Naruto: What are you doin'?
      Lee: I will not be outdone.
      Naruto This isn't a weight, you know!

    • Sakura: Hang in there, Naruto.
      Kiba: We'll be on the sidelines cheerin' for ya.
      Naruto: Well, feel free to come join me on the field!

    • Tunade: Relax, it's just a legend. I'm sure you'll be fine.
      Naruto: I don't find that very reassuring.

    • Naruto: Can we get back to my problem for a second here? He's stuck to my back like glue.
      Tsunade: Oh, right. Well, let's see. According to legend, the Onbaa's offspring consider the first thing they see as their mother and will cling to that creature's back exclusively. They supposedly ride around in this unusual fashion until they reach full maturity, but before that fateful day arrives, the two are never separated.
      Sakura: I guess you're just going to have to wait for it to grow up, Naruto.
      Naruto: (Sarcastic) Oh yeah, that's an awesome idea. What the heck am I going to do when it's a nine-foot tall behemoth? (Everybody backs away) Oh, that's great, guys. Thanks for the support.

    • Naruto: That's the worst handwriting I've ever seen.
      Sakura: Like you're one to talk, you dummy.

    • Naruto: So, did Pervy Sage find one of them or not?
      Tsunade: He returned to the village three days later and said he'd won through a ring-out move, the little liar.

    • Young Tsunade: What are you, deranged? You don't seriously believe there's an Onbaa out there, do you?
      Young Jiraiya: Well, we'll just see won't we, when I've completed my investigation.
      Young Tsunade: Whatever. Even if there was an Onbaa out there, it wouldn't want anything to do with you.
      Young Jiraiya: What do you know, you billboard of a female?
      Young Tsunade: I'm not a billboard, you jerk! And there's no such thing as an Onbaa!
      Young Jiraiya: Oh yeah, you want to bet on it?
      Young Tsunade: Sure thing pipsqueek!
      Young Orochimaru: I'm betting on Jiraiya this time.

    • Tsunade: A long time ago, when I was still a little girl, I was told of a legend. A tale of a dangerous bear-like creature known as the Onbaa living in the mountains near our village. Then one day, that little idiot Jiraiya pledged to spend his summer break studying the creature and headed off into the woods like a loon.
      Naruto: The Pervy Sage did?
      Tsunade: Yep.

    • Kiba: There's some kind of creature on your back, you idiot.
      Sakura: What is it, a caterpillar?
      Naruto: Get it off! Get it off!
      Kiba: (Grabs Onbu and tries to get it off) No, it's not a bug, it's a little animal. (Pulls hard, but can't get it off) It doesn't want to let go.
      Naruto: Why does this happen to me?

    • Sakura: You can bring them by later, I'll stitch them up for you.
      Naruto: Great! For real? Ya mean it? I can't believe how kind you're being to me, Sakura. I think that may be the nicest thing you've ever offered to do for me in my whole entire life!
      Sakura: All right, all right, don't get carried away. (Onbu touches Sakura's breast) Naruto! (She kicks Naruto into a fence)
      Naruto: Wait, I don't understand. What did I do?
      Sakura: You just put your hands on me, didn't you?
      Naruto: 'Course not, I wouldn't do that.
      Sakura: Then what about those grubby little paws sticking out from your armpits, huh! Wait, what the...?
      Naruto: Huh? Wha?
      Kiba: Check your back.
      Naruto: Gah! What is that thing?! What did that eagle eat?

    • Naruto: Hey, Sakura!
      Sakura: Well, well. Hey there lazybones, I heard you haven't got a mission.
      Naruto: It's not like I'm just lounging around.
      Sakura: No kidding, you've really been going at it, huh. You ripped your pants.
      Naruto: Huh? Where? Oh, you're right, I didn't even notice.
      Sakura: (Sighs) Hopeless as ever.

    • Naruto: What's up? Why all the barking?
      Kiba: He says you kinda reek, Naruto. You been skipping bath time lately?
      Naruto: Hey, watch it bub! I'm not in the mood, okay.
      Kiba: Seriously, you stink.

    • Naruto: Ever since Onbu latched onto my back, I get all the cushiest jobs in the village. Sounds like a good deal to me.

    • Naruto: (Sitting in a bathtub after Onbu pees on him) I get the feeling I'll be spending a lot of time in the tub.

    • Naruto: This is no joke.

      ~Japanese version

    • Kiba: Have you been showering regularly?
      Naruto: Don't be so rude.
      Kiba: No, you really do smell.

      ~Japanese version

    • Tsunade: The Onbaa is no longer a legend. Water and food issues...The whole village is at stake. That's because we brought them in here!
      (Onbaa pops up over her shoulder)
      Onbaa: Onbu!
      Tsunade: Naruto! How did you get rid of him? Tell me!
      Naruto: Who knows? I just played sumo with Onbu.

      ~Japanese version

    • Naruto: (Sitting in bathtub with Onbu still stuck to his jacket) Do I have to take a bath every time he pisses?

      ~Japanese version

    • Naruto: Sorry! Sorry! Did it just poop on me? Hopefully there isn't any on me. Since I moved around a lot and broke a sweat, I might as well go back and take a shower. (After reaching the village gates) I sweated a fair bit today, too.

      ~Japanese version

    • (Hinata is following Naruto)
      Naruto: What is it, Hinata?
      Hinata: (Shyly) Um, Naruto. I heard a strange rumor.
      Naruto: A strange rumor, eh?
      Hinata: I heard that, you have a kid.
      Naruto: Ah, are you talking about him?
      (Onbu appears, scaring Hinata and causing her to faint)
      Naruto: HUH? Hinata!! (Walks up to her and tries to wake her up) Hey, are you right? Hinata?! Hinata? Hinata?!
      (Hinata wakes up again, notices Onbu and faints, yet again)
      Naruto: HINATA?!

      Kiba: We will support you from the shadows!
