  • Quite possibly the best Naruto Battle ever!!

    9.5
    Season 6 of Naruto opened up with a string of episodes, which chronicled the ultimate battle between Naruto Uzumaki and Sasuke Uchiha. Both fighters refused to give the other fighter a fighting chance and both of them were fighting for two opposite reasons. Naruto, to bring Sasuke back to the Leaf Village. He had fled from the village and Naruto, along with several other Genin and Shikamaru, a Chunin, were sent to bring him back. They had to fight several loyal Sound Shinobi. Sasuke though, was looking to cut off all his ties from the Leaf Village and seek out Orochimaru. He wants to gain the power to defeat his older brother, Itachi Uchiha in battle and avenge his formerly proud family forever!!moreless
  • Oh Em frikkin Gee, this is what I've been frikkin waiting for!

    9.5
    All I have to say is wow. I've already seen this episode a lot of times but I am always left in awe every time I do. The aesthetic value is just great but some of the concepts used in this episode was also breathtaking. One such instance is how Naruto was finally putting his shadow replications to good use instead of just wasting his chakra, how he used them as a spring and missiles was just absolutely awesome. The taijutsu was also great, watching Sasuke battle against like ten Narutos was one of the best fight scenes I've seen. Then it ends perfectly with the two taking it up a notch. The only thing that killed is was even more Sasuke-Naruto homo love near the beginning but other than that, WOW!moreless
  • Really kickin butt awesome episode.

    10
    So first off this episode had really awesome fighting techinuques which was amazing and I really loved it how Naruto went into his nine tailed fox form and how he kicked Sasuke's butt which was definately the best and Naruto was awesome as well. Naruto and Sasuke continue there fight at a valley in the water falls and is getting really interesting. This is probaly one of my favorite episodes in Season 6. This episode deserves a perfect 10 out of 10 for all thise awesome techniques in fighting and I just love this battle between Naruto and Sasuke which totally kicks butt.moreless
  • My fav fight EVER!

    9.7
    My favorite fight ever. The battle between best friends yet worst enemies. Sasuke kept pounding Naruto and thought he was in the clear, but then he went one -tail and beat the mess out of Sasuke. Sasuke's sharigan kicked in and then matched him. It was an amazing battle. But the drawing could of been a bit clearer during the fight. They looked kinda wierd. I love Sasukes final curse form. The most painful part was when Sasuke pushed Naruto off the high cliff grabbed him and held him. Then Naruto cracked his head on the ground. Thr part before that was bit nice. Sasuke did that fire ball thing and almost destroyed Naruto they both looked suprised. They realized the price that may come with this fight. Both or one of them may DIE! Dun Dun DUUUN! At the end him and Naruto got ready to launch their final attacks. Naruto's Rasengan and Sasuke's Chidori. Naruto versus Sasuke and Rasengan versus Chidori. It was the ultimate battle. I cannot wait for the Shippuuden when they fight for a 3rd time. I wonder what is going to happen then.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • During Sasuke's fight with Naruto with the 3rd stage Sharingan, Naruto catches Sasuke off guard by grabbing his ankles from under water. This is the second time Sasuke has been caught off guard like this. The first time was in You Failed! Kakashi's Final decision (season 1 episode 5) when Kakashi grabbed Sasuke's ankle from underground.

    • When Naruto gains the first tail, watch his hands. When they first touch the water, after he punches Sasuke, his right hand is out front and his left hand is beside him. In the next shot, his hand positions are reversed.

    • The hole in Naruto's jacket disappears several times throughout the episode.

    • Naruto's eyes in the beginning keep switching from his regular eyes to that of Kyubi's.

  • QUOTES (17)

    • Pakkun: Oh, there you are.
      Kakashi: Are you sure it's this way?
      Pakkun: Yep! We'd better pick up the pace. I'm getting a bad feeling about this.

    • Sasuke: Come, Naruto! If that's how it is, I'll just have to sever that bond.
      Naruto: Sever it just like that, huh? Then why do you bother wearing that headband anymore?
      Sasuke: I'll admit it, you're definitely strong. It's because you know the pain that solitude brings, just as I do. It's that very pain that makes you and I stronger Naruto. Which means if I can break that bond, I'll be able to achieve even greater strength.

    • Naruto: Now let's go. Enough is enough, snap out of it already. If you don't come to your senses, then I'm going to have to break all your bones and drag you back to the village. So get up, Sasuke!

    • Sasuke: What the heck do you know about it?! It's not like you had a family in the first place! You were on your own from the beginning! What makes you think you know anything about it, huh? I'm suffering now because I had those ties. How on earth could you possibly understand what it feels like to lose all that?!

    • Sasuke: (Thinking) That's Naruto? What is this power? What was that red chakra? Is he some kind of monster?

    • Kakashi: Please, just let me make it in time!

    • Sasuke: It's too late, Naruto. It's just too late. I can't turn back.

    • Kyubi: (To Naruto in his mind) You runt. You really are weak. (Laughs evilly) You better be grateful to me. And to your beloved Fourth Hokage, who sealed me inside a twerp like you.

    • Sasuke: What the heck are you?
      Naruto: I'm your friend!

    • Sasuke: I acknowledge it. You are strong. It's because you know the same pain of loneliness that I do. And, that pain makes people stronger. By breaking those bonds, I'll obtain even greater strength! Now, we fight as equals. But, you won't even be able to put a single scratch on my forehead. That fact will not change.
      Naruto: What ever I say seems pointless...Sasuke!
      Sasuke: No more talk. From here on out, we fight. Come!

      ~Japanese version

    • Sasuke: Why, Naruto? Why would you go this far for me?
      Naruto: This is one of the first bonds I've ever had. That's why I'll stop you!
      Sasuke: (Puts on his forehead protector to show that he and Naruto are equals) You're too late, Naruto. It's too late for that. There is no going back for me.

      ~Japanese version

    • Sasuke: Shut up! What do you know about me, with no parents or siblings? You were alone from the start! What the hell do you know!? We suffer from our bonds... You don't know how it feels to lose them!

      ~Japanese version

    • Naruto: That's why I said I'm not letting you go to Orochimaru! That's why I said I'd break your arms and legs if I had to!

      ~Japanese version

    • Naruto: Is this what it feels like to have a brother?

      ~Japanese version

    • Kyubi: You're really weak, aren't you, brat?! (Laughs evilly) You really should be thanking me, kid, and the Fourth Hokage, who sealed me inside your body!

      ~Japanese version

    • Sasuke: Come Naruto, let's break these bonds!

      ~Japanese version

    • Sasuke: What the hell are you?
      Naruto: Your friend!
