  • Trivia

    • When Sasuke and Naruto are staring at each other on the roof, we notice that there are no blankets along the fence behind them. But during the view from above, you see a blanket blowing in the wind behind them.

    • When Naruto is attempting his Uzumaki Naruto Combo on Sasuke, it shows 4 shadow clones sliding across the ground to kick Sasuke upwards, but only 3 are shown kicking him upward.

  • Quotes

    • Naruto: Ha!
      Sasuke: What's so funny?
      Naruto I'm not laughing because it's funny. I'm just psyched because today is the day when I finally beat you.
      Sasuke: What did you say? Don't talk nonsense, you inept loser!
      Naruto: I won't be such a loser after I win today. Will I?!

    • Naruto: Come on. You know putting on your headband is a testament to fighting on equal terms as a Leaf Shinobi.
      Sasuke: There you go, acting all high and mighty again. You don't honestly believe that we're equals?
      Naruto: Heck yeah I do! All this time I never once thought that I was inferior to you in any way!
      Sasuke: You're a complete embarrassment!
      Naruto: Only because next to me, you're embarrassed at how weak you are. Isn't that right, Sasuke?!
      Sasuke: (Yelling and charging) Naruto!!!
      Naruto: (Yelling and charging) Sasuke!!!

    • Sasuke: You! An idiot like you has no business acting all high and mighty!
      Naruto: Ha! What happened to the calm, controlled, Sasuke? Am I making you nervous? It looks you picked a fight with me and now you're too scared to go through with it. Is that it?
      Sasuke: Let's just do this.
      Naruto: Put on your headband and we will.

    • Naruto: I was just thinking how I wanted to kick your butt.

    • Sakura: That's weird. I wonder where I put that knife I had before?
      Naruto: It's right in front of you, Sakura. (Laughs)
      Sakura: Oh.
      Naruto: You're so lame, getting all scatterbrained just 'cause Sasuke's around.
      Sakura: Why do you have to come in here and annoy me?

    • Tsunade: I see. You've made up your mind then?
      Lee: Yes. I have already been carrying out fitness training to prepare for this surgery. I will return to action as soon as I can after I heal. (Does punches, then kicks when something pops) Ow, ow, ow.

    • Orochimaru: The time is right. Head for the Leaf Village now.

    • Shikamaru: See ya later. I'm heading home. My dad's been making me nervous talking about how he actually wants to teach me a new jutsu or something.
      Choji: Shikamaru...
      Shikamaru: Hmm? Well what is it?
      Choji: Just, good luck with your training.
      Shikamaru: Later. (Thinking) You're a good guy, Choji.

    • (Choji is eating short ribs like there is no tomorrow)
      Ino: You're gonna end up in the hospital again, Choji. I mean, haven't you ever heard of savoring your food?
      Choji: Don't worry. I figure the more bites I eat, the more bites I get to savor. Right?

    • Ino: You know, even a guy as lazy as you are somehow seems respectable all of a sudden.
      Choji: (Laughs) It doesn't suit ya.
      Shikamaru: It's not that funny.

    • Choji: Yeah, ha ha, let's eat!
      Ino: Choji! Lay off of the meat, we're about to have a toast.
      Choji: Oh, sorry.

    • Tsunade: I hear that the Third Hokage had nothing but the highest praise for your match. It seems he meant to recommend you for chunin. In fact, all those who observed the fight, and your proctors felt the same. So in this case, my opinion doesn't really matter. From this day forth I hope you will strive to achieve a level of excellence worthy of that headband. Congratulations! As of this moment, you stand a chunin!

    • Choji: The last piece of meat. This bite shall be the most sacred bite of our meal and must be consumed with utmost care. So back off sister, I'm not handing this morsel over to anyone.

    • Tsunade: (Thinking) Sarutobi-sensei, I can see you were a magnificent Hokage.

    • Sasuke: You, Naruto!
      Naruto: Yeah, I'm listening.
      Sasuke: I want you to fight me; fight me now!

    • Sasuke: (To Naruto) Don't get cocky and let your guard down!

    • Naruto: The Konoha forehead protector is proof that we're fighting as equals!
      Sasuke: This is what I mean when I say you're full of yourself. You think you and I are equals?!
      Naruto: Yes, we are! I've never thought of myself as any lower than you!
      Sasuke: You're an eyesore!
      Naruto: That's because you're weak, Sasuke-chan!
      Sasuke: Now you've gone TOO far!

      ~Japanese version

    • Naruto: Before we fight, put on your forehead protector. I'll wait.
      Sasuke: I won't need it.
      Naruto: I don't care. Just put it on!
      Sasuke: You won't even be able to scratch my forehead!

      ~Japanese version

    • Sasuke: You idiot! Why are you always so full of yourself?
      Naruto: Ha! You, who's always so cool-headed, is talking more than usual. That's not like you. Could it be that you're scared despite the fact that you picked the fight, Sasuke?

      ~Japanese version

    • (Naruto laughs)
      Sasuke: What's so funny?
      Naruto: It's not that it's funny. I'm actually happy. Just thinking about how easy it will be to take you down right here.
      Sasuke: What did you say? A failure like you shouldn't be talking like that.
      Naruto: At least I'm not a failure that's always dragging others down.

      ~Japanese version

    • Naruto: (Thinking) What is this feeling? It's as though my skin is actually tightening...and I'm excited.

      ~Japanese version
