Naruto RPG. For those unfamiliar with the series, Naruto was originally a manga one-shot by Masashi Kishimoto. He entered the manga into a contest and won, and his chapter was presented in a Jump magazine. This can be found in various places, usually titled Naruto Pilot. A few years later, Kishimoto got a contract for a manga series in Shounen Jump, and he chose his old one-shot manga, though it was changed a great deal. The manga, focusing on a village of ninjas, soon became a huge success and spawned an anime of the same name. This anime never left Japan, though fansubbers and scanlators release the anime and manga all over the world, and to date it is a phenomenal success, one of the most popular anime outside of Japan. The series has spawned a number of games: Naruto - Wonderswan Crystal (RPG) Naruto - Playstation (Board game) Naruto: Narutimate Hero - Playstation 2 (Fighting) Naruto: Narutimate Hero 2 - Playstation 2 (Fighting) - in progress Naruto: Gekitou Ninja Taisen - Gamecube - Fighting Naruto: Gekitou Ninja Taisen 2 - Gamecube - Fighting Naruto: Saikyou Ninja Daikesshuu - Game Boy Advance (Platform) Naruto: Saikyou Ninja Daikesshuu 2 - Game Boy Advance (Platform) Naruto: Konoha Senkii - Game Boy Advance (Tactics RPG) Unfortunately, due to the lack of anime outside of Japan (not necessarily a bad thing), all of these games have yet to leave Japan's shores. =================== 1b) Version History =================== v1.0 - 31/12/2004 - Completed Walkthrough (finally!) - Added missing Combination Techniques - Replaced a couple of translations - Added Secrets section v0.5 - 26/7/2004 - Completed Characters and Jutsu sections. - Walkthrough updated to halfway through the fourth mission. v0.1 - 21/7/2004 - Walkthrough as far as the Konohamaru mission. - Story, Tutorial and Characters added. ================ 1c) Coming Soon ================ -Full Items/Enemies/Bosses lists -Compatibility Guide -Kumite Dojo Guide -Sidequests Guide ========= 2) Story ========= The world of Naruto is split into many countries, most containing a hidden village in which ninjas are trained to protect their country and do missions in the country's name. The series focuses on the Hidden Leaf Village, Konoha, in the Fire Country. Years ago, the greatest of all demons, the Kyuubi(Nine-Tails), attacked the village and massacred the inhabitants. The Fourth Hokage, the leader of the village, sacrificed himself to seal away the demon in a baby. That baby was called Uzumaki Naruto. Naruto grew up as an outcast, shunned by the people of his own village. As a result of that, he became loud, obnoxious and boisterous, and his greatest desire is to prove himself to the village. At 12, after 3 consecutive years of failing, Naruto was set to fail yet again. However, one of the teachers at the academy, Mizuki, told him of a secret scroll containing jutsu(abilities) that could easily pass him. Naruto was thrilled at this prospect, and immediately went to get the scroll. Mizuki then proceeded to tell the entire village that Naruto had stolen the scroll. Naruto's own teacher, Iruka, could not believe this, and when he found Naruto, Naruto had learned a single high-level jutsu from the scroll. Mizuki then appeared and demanded the scroll. Iruka protected Naruto and the scroll, almost dying in the process, and seeing this Naruto became enraged and used the jutsu contained in the scroll, the Kage Bunshin. With this, hundreds of clones of Naruto appeared and beat the stuffing out of Mizuki. Iruka then applauded Naruto on his courage and passed him, allowing him to become an official ninja. Naruto went on to be assigned to a three-man team, with his classmates Haruno Sakura and Uchiha Sasuke. Their elected instructor was Hatake Kakashi, but when they arrived at the meeting spot he wasn't there to meet them. Why has Kakashi not arrived? What is the first thing he plans to teach them? Play the game to find out. ============ 3) Tutorial ============ The game is played in true RPG style, with a party of four characters holding items and using special jutsu. The random battle system is a lot like the ATB system of Final Fantasy games, where each character has a certain time between their attacks. Buttons: D-Pad - Move in different directions and scroll through options. Select - Open Save Screen. Start - Open Pause Menu when not in battle. A - Select/Confirm commands. B - Cancel commands, hold down in the field to run. L/R - Switch rows in battle. ----------- Pause Menu ----------- The Pause Menu shows the stats of the character. The level is shown, along with the Stamina, Chakra and status of the character. Option 1: Items Press Up and Down to scroll through the list of items, and A to use them. Weapons will apear in the Item List, but they are unusable from this menu. Option 2: Equipment Choose your character with the A Button, then configure equipment. 1 - Weapon 2 - Armor 3 - Footwear Option 3: Jutsu Choose your character with the A Button, then scroll through the jutsu available to you and press A to use one. Option 4: Skills Press A to select your character. This screen shows your jutsu and the amount of times they must be used to raise them to the next level. Press A to toggle between on and off for Auto Hand Seal Entry. This means that you don't need to enter the button combos for the jutsu. Option 5: Status Press A to choose your character. This shows, in order: Stamina Chakra Attack Defense Speed Ninja Power Accuracy Status EXP EXP to reach next level The top right shows your equipment and the bottom right shows your jutsu and jutsu levels. ------------ Battle Menu ------------ The bar on the right marks the timing of the battle. The blue bar is preparation time. When the character's name hits the top of the blue bar, you may use a command. The orange bar is execution time. A regular attack or defense doesn't require time to execute and the bar is bypassed instantly. When you use a jutsu, the bar keeps rising and the jutsu activates when it hits the top of the orange bar. If an opponent attacks, depending on your speed, there is a chance that it will miss, and this will be shown by you switching with a log. Option 1: Attack Attack the opponent with your weapon. Option 2: Defend Defend to take less damage. Option 3: Jutsu Use a jutsu from your arsenal. Option 4: Item Use an item. Option 5: Run Escape from the battle. At the end of the battle, it shows any money, experience points and items you may have earned, along with your stats and experience requirement for the next level. If you have too many items to hold, choose the third option to send your items into storage. ============== 4) Characters ============== --------------- Uzumaki Naruto --------------- Age: 12 Rank: Genin Speciality: Kage Bunshin Short bio: Naruto grew up as an outcast, shunned by the people of his own village. As a result of that, he became loud, obnoxious and boisterous, and his greatest desire is to prove himself to the village. His dream is to become Hokage so that people will acknowledge him. Overview: At the start of the game, Naruto's got fairly high stats and is a pretty good all-rounder character. His Ninja Power is low, though this doesn't really come into play for him as his jutsu aren't offensive. His Kage Bunshin is quite useful against strong enemies. As he levels up, his stats don't increase much, so he begins to lag behind the others. However, he is the easiest to level up, so this makes him a useful character to keep around. Lv99 Stats: Stamina - 974 Chakra - 941 Attack - 956 Defense - 836 Speed - 817 Ninja Power - 315 Accuracy - 817 -------------- Uchiha Sasuke -------------- Age: 12 Rank: Genin Speciality: Sharingan Short bio: Sasuke is the aloof person in Naruto's class, but always comes out on top. He's a genius from the Uchiha clan, the most prestigious clan in Konoha, though for some unknown reason he appears to be the only member left. All he wishes to do is to "kill a certain man", and it seems that he'll do anything to accomplish this. Overview: Sasuke is the typical powerhouse character. High Stamina, high Speed and high Ninja Power. His signature jutsu, the Goukakyuu, does ridiculously high damage from the start of the game, albeit with a high chakra cost. He's also extremely difficult to level up, but it's worth it when you do because he just becomes stronger and stronger. Lv99 Stats: Stamina - 656 Chakra - 616 Attack - 919 Defense - 810 Speed - 894 Ninja Power - 730 Accuracy - 843 --------------- Haruno Sakura --------------- Age: 12 Rank: Genin Speciality: Genjutsu Short bio: Sakura is from the same class as Naruto and Sasuke. She has a major crush on Sasuke, and that is really all she seems to think about. As a ninja however, she is fairly knowledgable on many subjects regarding battle, and her ability to detect genjutsu is the best on her team. Sakura also happens to have the best chakra control, so any chakra she uses will not be wasted. Sakura doesn't do much during battle and is always in need of protection, but perhaps one day she will prove herself to be an excellent kunoichi... Overview: Sakura has the lowest amount of HP and Chakra out of the three Genin, but she makes an excellent black/white mage. Unlike Naruto and Sasuke, who stick to their manga/anime roots and techniques, Sakura has brand new techniques that she doesn't know in the series. Katon, Raiton and Fuuton are some examples. Sakura can also heal HP and get rid of status effects, so this makes her very useful. The only technique of Sakura's that appears is her Inner Sakura, which raises her speed, allowing for quicker attacks and healing. Lv99 Stats: Stamina - 654 Chakra - 773 Attack - 659 Defense - 649 Speed - 753 Ninja Power - 960 Accuracy - 765 --------- Rock Lee --------- Age: 13 Rank: Genin Speciality: Taijutsu Short bio: Rock Lee is a genius of hard work. Ever since he was a child, he found himself unable to use even basic ninjutsu and genjutsu. Because of that, he was seen as a failure and constantly told he could never become a ninja. He refused to give up, and wants to prove that it's possible to become a great ninja with taijutsu alone. Overview: Lv99 Stats: Stamina - 916 Chakra - 597 Attack - 999 Defense - 821 Speed - 980 Ninja Power - 587 Accuracy - 749 ------------ Hyuuga Neji ------------ Age: 13 Rank: Genin Speciality: Juuken (Gentle Fist) Short bio: The Hyuuga clan has two main houses, the Main House and the Branch House. The Main House inherits the leadership of the clan, and to ensure this a curse seal is placed on members of the Branch House when they reach a certain age so that they can be kept under control. Neji lost his father in an incident involving the Main House when he was still young, and he harbors bitterness towards the whole clan. Neji has completely inherited the Hyuuga bloodline, stronger than any other family member. However, as a Branch House member, he can never succeed the clan. Overview: Lv99 Stats: Stamina - 945 Chakra - 906 Attack - 998 Defense - 958 Speed - 934 Ninja Power - 876 Accuracy - 961 --------------- Nara Shikamaru --------------- Age: 12 Rank: Genin Speciality: Shadow Bind Short bio: Shikamaru is the laziest ninja in existence. He can't be bothered to do even the simplest thing and insists that everything is just "troublesome". However, it has been discovered that he has an IQ of 200, and is a master at strategy and tactics, always thinking many moves ahead. He was in Naruto's class, but came second last because he could never be bothered to write down the answers, even though he already knew them. Overview: Lv99 Stats: Stamina - 893 Chakra - 840 Attack - 849 Defense - 773 Speed - 619 Ninja Power - 949 Accuracy - 888 =============== 5) Walkthrough =============== The game opens with the three ninjas waiting for Kakashi and complaining about the time. Naruto decides to be sneaky and leave a trap for Kakashi, to the chagrin of Sakura. Sasuke doesn't seem to care, he only says that a Jounin level instructor like Kakashi wouldn't fall for a trick like that. Kakashi appears (finally) and immediately falls for the trap Naruto set. Sakura is straight-away apologizing, but Kakashi just tells the three that he doesn't like them already. He tells them that they must retrieve two bells from him, and the last one without a bell will get no lunch. The team proceeds to fan out and begin their assault. ----------------------- 5.1) Forest: Kakashi's Test New Character(s): Naruto Items: Ration Pill, Hexagon Sword Enemies: Snake, Crow, Boar, Kakashi(Boss) ----------------------- You begin in a small clearing. Head for the top left of the clearing and open the basket to reveal a Ration Pill. It won't be long before you begin to run into enemies, however the ones in this region are a piece of cake, dispatch them quickly as you go along to build up experience. At the south end of the screen, you will find that the way west is blocked. The only way out is south, so head that way. You'll find a fork in the next screen, head down the left branch to pick up a weapon, the Hexagon Sword. It's no more powerful than your current shuriken, so it's really a matter of choice as to whether you decide to equip it. Go back up and head down the right fork, exiting to the east. In this area, you'll find that there's - surprise, surprise - more boulders blocking the south exit, so head directly east to find a basket with Cup Ramen in it. Head north, ignoring the pool here and you'll see a large Konoha mark in the ground. Stepping on this will instantly heal you completely, so right around here is the perfect place to level up before you go on. When you're ready, head east to find Kakashi reading his Come Come Paradise novel. -------------- Boss: Kakashi Attacks: Sen-Nen Gurushi (100 Years of Pain) -------------- This fight is pretty pointless, it's completely rigged. Your attacks will mostly miss during the first three turns, although if your speed is high enough there's a chance you'll hit. On the fourth round, he'll use Sen-Nen Gurushi on you, which causes a painful 999 damage and torches you instantly. Naruto is upset with this loss, and decides to use his Kage Bunshin to gans up on Kakashi. Kakashi is amazed that Naruto can use Kage Bunshin (yes, even if you use it in the battle, he'll be seeing it for the first time here), but not especially fazed. He transforms into a Naruto clone and then all of the clones start fighting. Then Naruto dissipates the jutsu, but...he's the only one left standing? Kakashi then appears and catches Naruto in a trap, disabling him. ----------------------- Forest: Kakashi's Test New Character(s): Sakura Items: Ration Pill, Chakra Pill, Wing Hooks Enemies: Snake, Crow, Boar, Kakashi(Boss) ----------------------- Sakura begins, as Naruto did, in a small clearing. There's really no point in hanging around here, so head north. Up here, you'll hit a T junction. Head left to grab a basket containing a Ration Pill and then go to the right and off to the east. You'll hit another T here, so go south to find a basket containng a Chakra Pill. Head off north now and then to the east to find that your path is, of course, blocked to the east. So go south down this new route. You'll have the choice of going west or south. Head west and you'll find a Konoha mark to heal you. Go back east again and south, where you'll find that the south exit is blocked, and to the left there's a basket containing Wing Hooks, a nice weapon which you should equip. Go back to the Konoha mark and heal up, then spend some time levelling up if you want. When you're ready, head south. Here you'll run into Sasuke, who is strangely quiet. Kakashi will show up and you must fight him. -------------- Boss: Kakashi Attacks: Magen Narakumi (Demon Illusion, Hell Body) -------------- Another pointless fight. You get to try out Sasuke's jutsu a bit early, though you'll be playing as him in less than a few minutes. Do whatever you want, go wild with jutsu, whichever. It really doesn't make a difference. After a few rounds, he'll use Magen Narakumi on Sasuke, filling him with kunai. Sakura is extremely upset with this and breaks down crying, until Sasuke poofs. Kakashi's Lesson 2: Genjutsu. The Sasuke was an illusion. ----------------------- Forest: Kakashi's Test New Character(s): Sasuke Items: Ration Pill, Chakra Pill, Amaguri Enemies: Snake, Crow, Boar, Kakashi(Boss) ----------------------- Sasuke, unlike the others, doesn't appear in a clearing. You appear on a path, with the choices of going north or south. The north path is blocked off, so head on south. Down here you'll find a corner with a basket containing a Ration Pill. Head off west and south. You'll find a small lake here that's impassable, so your only option is to go around it. Head east, south and west again to emerge on the other side of the lake. Pick up the basket containing Amaguri (sweet chestnuts). Go south from here and west. There'll be a path in a circle around a tree, on the northeast corner of the circle there's a basket with a Chakra Pill. Take the western path north to find another Konoha mark. Heal up, level if you wish and go north to fight Kakashi. -------------- Boss: Kakashi Attacks: None -------------- Again Sasuke differs, as this battle isn't rigged in Kakashi's favor. Shoot off a Katon Goukakyuu (second jutsu) on your first turn and then attack from there on. He'll soon be defeated. Next, Kakashi takes the three of you and ties Naruto up, as he'd tried to sneak a lunch. He then lectures you on teamwork, saying that the three of you had all fought as individuals, and not as a team, and that if you continue like this you should quit as ninjas. He then gives Sasuke and Sakura the lunches, telling them not to give any to Naruto. He poofs away. Naruto complains and his stomach rumbles, and eventually Sasuke decides to hand over his lunch, otherwise Naruto will be useless in the next test. Sakura agrees, and hands hers over too. Then Kakashi poofs back in, and he's super-mad at them for disobeying his orders. Sasuke and Sakura are defiant and say that he was talking about teamwork, and that's exactly what they're doing, not letting Naruto be the straggler in the second test. Kakashi then says that they've done exactly as they should have and passes them all. He shows them a monument to dead ninjas, and says that sometimes death is what it takes for a mission to succeed. The group then leave. Go back to the poles and to the south end of the screen to pick up a Suiton scroll, then go back to the previous screen. Head west, picking up a Ration Pill in a basket on the way, then heal up at the Konoha mark. You can level up your characters here if you want, but be aware that it'll be slower as experience is shared between party members. When you're done, head north to the exit and head for Konoha. -------------------- Konoha Items: Medical Ration Pill, 50 ryou, 100 ryou, Rice Ball, White Ball Anmitsu, Acid Konbu Enemies: None -------------------- First thing you do here is head north into the ramen shop, where Kakashi will talk to you about affinity between characters. The higher the affinity between certain characters, the higher the chance that they will team up and do a dual attack. Sakura then explains to you that as a Genin, your team must begin to complete missions. Kakashi says that he'll wait for you at the mission reception office, and leaves. You talk to the shop owner and then leave yourself. Before you go to the mission office, you should go exploring and looting. The town's pretty straightforward. The ramen shop is at the entrance. To the left of that is Item Storage, where your excess items go. To the right of the ramen shop is a ninja shop which sells general items. North of the ramen shop is a weapons shop. Now, head off to the east to reach another part of the town. Not much to do here yet, except look at the poster for the Naruto movie. Head north to the house with the ninja and dog outside it and grab the basket there to snag 100 ryou. Head back off to the west into the main town. Head north towards the school. Before the bridge to the school, go into the gap where the female ninja is wandering around and relieve the basket there of 50 ryou. Now head north into the school. In here, you'll find a nice bunch of baskets to loot. Firstly, head into the left door on the ground floor, then into the left classroom. Here, you'll find a basket with Acid Konbu. (Konbu is a type of seaweed.) Go back to the main room and go up the left stairs. Don't exit to the east yet, head up to the top to get a White Ball Anmitsu(syrup-covered jam+fruit...mmm...). Head off to the left exit now, where in the classroom to the left you'll find a Rice Ball. Go back to the main room and head off east this time and up the right stairs. Go east and go up this set of stairs to the room there where you'll pick up a Medical Ration Pill. Okay...your pockets must be feeling quite cheerful by now, so it's off to get your first mission! Go back to the main room and go into the door to the right on the ground floor. Head into the right here to find the mission office. Here you'll have A, B, C and D rank missions explained to you. As a new Genin, you are assigned a D-Rank Mission, which is to watch over a scroll called the Child's Scroll in Hokage's house. Naruto is shocked by this apparently boring mission, but Kakashi smacks him, telling him to show some respect. Kakashi has better things to do, so he leaves the mission in your somewhat capable hands, and you then proceed to Hokage's house. The guarding of the scroll is getting increasingly boring, and Naruto is getting increasingly frustrated until the lights go out and the room is thrown into confusion. When the lights go back on, Hokage's grandson Konohamaru is standing there and the scroll is missing. His mentor, Ebisu, comes in and tells him off for running away, and the two leave. Our team is amazed by this, knowing full well that Konohamaru has the scroll. They immediately go to find him. -------------------- 5.2) First Mission - Find Konohamaru! Items: None Enemies: Ebisu(Boss) -------------------- Konohamaru is hiding out in Konoha, and you must find him. The first thing you must do is talk to the woman outside the house. She says she saw him heading for the ninja school. Head towards the school to the west, and talk to the ninja outside. He says he saw Konohamaru around the mission office. Go inside the school and talk to the ninja standing by the right door on the ground floor. He claims that he saw Konohamaru around the ramen shop, so off you go! To the right of the ramen shop, the man wandering around tells you that he saw Konohamaru around the cinema. Head off to the east, and talk to the guy standing by the movie poster. He tells you he saw Konohamaru heading for the hospital. When you exit this part of town, you'll see Konohamaru following you in his box. There's nothing you can do about it now, so head north. When you enter this part of town, you'll see a cutscene where the team argues amongst themselves and leaves. Konohamaru emerges from the box, expresses his disgust and heads off to the training ground. Follow him to the training ground, and there'll be a cutscene where Konohamaru expresses his disgust for the unavoidable destiny that's been placed on him with the Konoha name. Naruto is shocked by this, and inspires him to become a ninja (with the help of the Oiroke no Jutsu) and tells him of his own dream to become Hokage. Konohamaru is driven by this, decides to call Naruto Boss, and then Ebisu shows up to punish Konohamaru. But, our team isn't gonna allow this, are they? -------------- Boss: Ebisu Attacks: Scrolls Items: Come Come Paradise 1 -------------- Ebisu will attack with scrolls, but it's really nothing to be worried about. Use jutsu in this fight and he'll soon be wasted. Konohamaru is excited now and demands to go off and train so that he can become a great Hokage. Our team waves him off and wishes him good luck. Head west and heal up, then return to Konoha. Back at the mission desk, Iruka congratulates you for a job well done and you receive 1000 ryou as a reward for completion. You are then told to go and get some rest before your second mission. ----------------- 5.3) Second Mission: Defeat the Tiger! Items: Ration Pill x2, Chakra Pill, Poison Manual x3, Butousen, Red Pepper, Poison Manual, Konoha Mail, Konoha Footwear, Come Come Paradise DVD, Ox Scroll Enemies: Snake, Pig, Small Fry Ninja, Bodyguard, Centipede, Konoha Ninja, Tiger(Boss) ----------------- You'll appear in Naruto's house the next day. Head out and off to the mission office. You will be told your second mission. You are to go to Konoha Forest and defeat the tiger inside. Head out, buy supplies and weapons if needed, then head south to Konoha Forest. This place will come as quite a shock after the trainning ground, as this is your first real area. My advice is to level up a bit before you go traipsing into the forest. The best way to do this is to hang around the entrance and get into battles, using your jutsu to win them. Then exit the forest, retunr to Konoha, heal up at the entrance mark, then go back into the forest. This can be tedious, but it's worth it. When you're ready to go, go to the southeast end of the clearing and pick up a basket with a Ration Pill inside. Then head north along the east path, grabbing a Chakra Pill in the indent to the right side. In the next screen you'll find an impassable body of water, with two baskets containing a Poison Manual and a Butousen, a great fan for Sakura. Go back south and take the west path, picking up the Konoha no Katabira, an armor that you should equip to one of your characters. Exit north. Up here, go north a bit, then east and over the bridge. You'll hit a fork. Take the south route to pick up a Tougarashi(Red Pepper), then return to the north path. Go around the trees, not missing the basket with the Shunshin Scroll, then exit to the east. Here you'll find a large clearing which is full of enemies to fight. This is the first time you'll run into an enemy called the Caterpillar. This enemy resists physical attacks and can Poison you, so finish it off quickly with jutsu. At the northwest corner of the clearing is a basket with a Poison Manual. Grab it, then head east around the trees. You'll see baskets on platforms, but you can't get them yet so ignore them. Exit north. Here you'll find two indents to the east. The lower path leads to a Poison Manual, and the top path leads to Konoha Footwear. Return to the main path and go north, then east. Cross over the stepping-stones and heal yourself at the Konoha Mark. Take a detour south to pick up a Ration Pill, then spend some time levelling up if you wish. Exit north to run into the tiger. -------------- Boss: Tiger Attacks: Roar EXP: 198 Items: Ox Scroll -------------- This isn't a very challenging boss. Have Sakura use her Suiton jutsu and Sasuke use his Goukakyuu. Naruto should use Oiroke no Jutsu and Onara, healing his teammates with Ration Pills if necessary. The tiger should be gone after a few rounds of this. After the battle, go into the house and pick up a Come Come Paradise DVD(!) from the basket. Leave and use the Shunshin Scroll you picked up earlier to exit the forest. Return to Konoha. Go back to the mission desk. You get congratulated again and receive your 1200 ryou reward, along with an Attack Medicine Pill. Now you must take the obligatory night's rest before your next mission. ----------------- 5.4) Third Mission: Weeding? Items: White Ball Anmitsu, Poison Smoke Ball, Shuriken, Shunshin Scroll Enemies: Leech, Caterpillar, Bandit, Bandit Chief, Reckless Boar, Tiger, Mountain Monk, Bandit Chief (Boss) ----------------- Back in Naruto's house again, head up to the school and into the mission office. Hokage gives you your next mission: Weeding! Naruto has an absolute fit about this, because he wants a "great" mission, not some crappy weeding job. Iruka goes insane at him and begins to lecture him about how missions have to be easy at first. He asks for Kakashi's support. Kakashi's quietly not too happy about weeding either, but openly he voices his indifference. Naruto complains more and asks if he became a ninja for this, then Iruka lectures him about him selfish speech and asks if he's forgotten what a ninja really is. Hokage chuckles and decides to send your group to Kikyou Ridge to get a medicinal plant from the top of the mountain. Exit the school, buy supplies, heal up and head out of Konoha. You'll see a new place on the map, Kikyou Ridge. Head for there. It's really important to level up here, this place will destroy you if you don't. It's a long area, with a lot of random battles, and you're going to need some levels if you want to keep your strength up. I recommend level 10 as an absolute minimum cut-off point. Do the usual fight-exit-heal-return procedure to level up. When you're done with all that, head east to begin the long, tedious trek. You can take the upper or lower path here, take the lower to reach a White Ball Anmitsu, then head along the upper path and exit north. Head north a bit, then west at the corner till you hit a U bend. Go around it and northeast a bit, then northwest to pick up a Poison Smoke Ball. Go back east and exit to the north. Go around the corner here to find a square-shaped area of grass on a level below you, in a sort of moat. Continue around it and you'll see a seemingly unreachable basket. Around the north side, there's a slope allowing you to walk down to the grass. Head along the grass back around the square-shape and at the southeast corner you'll be able to go back up again. Head west to grab the basket you saw earlier to get a Shuriken, then exit to the north. This part of the level is just annoying. Head northwest along the path to find a U-bend. Go around it and continue northeast to find another U-bend. Head northwest now and you'll find, yes, ANOTHER U-bend. Seeing a pattern here? Head off northeast to find a bend, but with a Konoha mark. And we all know what that means, so heal up and level if you need to. When you're ready, head west along the rock path and exit north to find the boss of this area. You'll see him almost instantly, the leader of all of the Bandits you've been fighting in this area. ------------------- Boss: Bandit Chief Attacks: Physical ------------------- A bit more difficult than the last two boss battles, this should take a few rounds. Have Naruto use his Suiton jutsu, have Sasuke use his Goukakyuu or Raiton and have Sakura use her Suiton(hopefully you have the Two Scrolls version, if not use One Scroll). If you need healing, have Sakura use Shousenrin or Sasuke use Ration Pills. If you keep a steady pace, he should be no problem to you. When the battle is done, inspect the flowers then grab the Shunshin Scroll from the basket to the southwest of you and use it to return to Konoha. Back at Konoha, Kakashi will announce that the mission is complete. Iruka says well done and that he hopes Naruto will not speak selfishly from now on, to which Naruto replies with a "Gotcha." Sasuke and Naruto then start arguing, but are stopped by Hokage, who give you your 1400 ryou reward, along with a Ration Pill, a Chakra Pill and a Defence Pill. He then sends you off the usual way. ----------------- 5.5) Fourth Mission: To The Wave Country ----------------- Back in Naruto's house, go to the mission desk, you know the deal. Hokage thinks over a mission to give you, as there don't seem to be many available. He considers babysitting, but Naruto gives him a big "No waaaay!", and Sasuke, Sakura and Kakashi just roll their eyes in a "Not again, why us?" kinda way. Hokage decides to give them a C-rank mission. Iruka protests, saying it's too early for them to get a C-rank mission, but Kakashi argues with him. Naruto then steps forward and says that they'll do it, with Sasuke and Sakura following. They are assigned as a bodyguard to an old man, who immediately begins to complain about the state of the team he's assigned. Naruto leaps at him in anger, but Kakashi stops him. The man introduces himself as Tazuna and says he's heading home to the Wave Country. Kakashi takes charge and tells them all to meet at the front gate. He says he'll also be fighting on this mission, but he'll be fighting his own way because he's a Jounin. Kakashi and Tazuna then leave and you're left to your own devices in Konoha. Go off and gather supplies, then heal up at the front gate and talk to Tazuna. The group's waiting for Kakashi, who's late again. After some conversation, he shows up. Naruto's raring to go, and his enthusiasm causes Tazuna to again question the arrangement. Naruto says to Tazuna to listen to him, that he's gonna be the best ninja ever, the Hokage! Tazuna says he looks pretty crappy and Naruto tells him to shut up, when he becomes Hokage he'll be acknowledged by all! Tazuna tells him he'll never be Hokage, and Naruto goes into kill mode again, but is again stopped by Kakashi. Tazuna then insists that you leave, so you do so. A new area is open on your map, the Fire Country Great Plains. Head for there. ------------- Great Plains Items: Fuuma Armor, Medical Ration Pill, All Manual, All-Purpose Pill, Fuuma Footwear Enemies: Reckless Boar, Samurai, Tiger, Hip Pouch, Konoha Ninja, Lord of Ruin ------------- The level curve in this area isn't as steep as in the previous missions, so if you've levelled up adequately already, you should be able to plow straight into it. Head south until you find a turn right. Head that way to find baskets containing a Fuuma Katabira and a Medical Ration Pill. Go back to the T point and head south. You'll reach another turn east, take this one as there's nothing of importance to the south. As soon as you pass the line of trees on the south, go to the southwest corner of this part and pick up an All Manual. Now head northeast, through the gate guarded by ninjas. You'll see a chest on top of a cliff here, no getting it now so keep going and exit east. Head east on this wide path. There's a turnoff south, but this leads to a dead-end cliff. Keep east and take the lower path to pick up an All-Purpose Pill. Go back and take the higher path northeast and north through the second gate. Exit north. Here you'll have a cutscene. Sakura asks if Tazuna's from the Wave Country, then asks Kakashi if there's ninjas in that country. Kakashi explains that the Wave Country is still a small country and there's no hidden village there, while the Fire Country is large, so Konoha Village is present there. He says that the other big countries are Water, Thunder, Earth and Wind. They all have hidden villages in them, and are seen as the big 5 countries. Each of the hidden villages of these countries has a Kage, like the Hokage, and they are the 5 greatest ninjas at any time. He also says that there's wandering ninjas, but on a C-rank mission they shouldn't run into any. You'll regain control right at a Konoha mark, so heal up and exit east. This area is a straight path east, across a river and to another Konoha mark, so level up freely here as you're about to encounter a boss. --------------------- Boss: Ghost Brothers Attacks: Poison EXP: 560 Items: Poison Manual x2 --------------------- The first thing the ninjas will do in this fight is knock out Kakashi with a 999 hit, rendering him useless for this battle. The ninjas will only do a Poison attack, and only on Naruto. When he's worn down enough, he'll notice that their attacks aren't doing a thing. One of the ninjas laughs and uses a 999 attack, knocking him out. Kakashi's body then disappears into a log and he zooms back in with 999 attacks, defeating the ninjas. (Note: Even if you do 999+ damage yourself, the ninjas will still not be defeated.) Sakura voices her relief that Kakashi is safe due to his use of Kawarimi. Sasuke humphs and believes he butted in. Kakashi congratulates Sasuke and says that he did well. Naruto considers that he himself couldn't do anything. Sasuke turns to Naruto and says at least he wasn't injured. Naruto gets angry, but Kakashi tells him not to argue or move, that he's still poisoned. He then turns to Tazuna and says that they need to talk. Kakashi notes that the ninjas are two chuunin from the Hidden Mist Village. The leader asks how Kakashi knows, and he replies that there's a recent lack of rain in the Great Plains. When he saw the puddles, he knew that there'd be a battle. Kakashi then says that they must have had a target, and Tazuna becomes defensive. Kakashi points the finger at him and says that none of the ninjas there would have reason to be targeted. He says that this has now risen to a B-rank mission, and asks why Tazuna lied. Sakura protests that a B-rank mission is too much for them and they should drop it. Kakashi agrees and decides that they should return to get Naruto medical treatment. Naruto sticks a kunai in himself to drain out the poison and swears that he won't lose to Sasuke. "With this kunai...I will protect Tazuna!" He demands that they resume the mission. Kakashi says yes, that's an effective method to extract the poison, but this way Naruto will soon bleed to death. Tazuna admires this devotion and spills his guts. He's being hunted by a dangerous man, Gatou, a great criminal, who hires wandering ninjas. Tazuna deceived them because the Wave Country is too poor to afford a B-rank mission. The group agrees to keep looking after him, and you regain control. Go to the northeast corner to get a chest containing Fuuma Footwear. Proceed south, going around the pool of water, and exit south. Now you'll be in a large clearing full of cats. There's two raised platforms here with chests, neither of which you can reach, and a tree formation in an upside-down L towards the south end. At the southeast end is a gate where a ninja is talking to an old woman. Her cat, Tama-chan, has run away and she wants to find him but she's not allowed through. You are asked to look for it. Tama-chan is to the southwest, directly to the left of the upside-down L. Talk to it and you pick it up. Return to the old woman and she thanks you for finding it and gets out of your way. Go south and exit the Great Plains. A new area is open to you now to the east, but first return to Konoha and stock up on all your needs. When you're done with that, go to the arrow that was opened and you'll end up in the Wave Country, with the only spot on your map the Bridge Under Construction. Enter. ------- Bridge Items: None Enemies: None ------- The importance of the bridge is explained. Gatou is opposing the bridge's construction because he wants the monopoly of shipping traffic in the Wave Country. If the bridge is built, more outside influences can be reached and he will lose his power. The deal is that Tazuna be escorted all the way to his house, and he intends to pick up on that deal. Kakashi predicts that the next attack will be from jounin, not chuunin. You'll exit the Bridge and return to the world map, where the Wave Country's Swamplands are now open to you. Go in. ----------- Swamplands Items: Gama Seal Ration Pill x2, Happou Shuriken, Defence Pill, Shuma Footwear, Sugar Mustard Enemies: Gatou Gang, Iron Crab, Shuriken Starfish, Shuriken Demon Starfish, Kunoichi, Pirate, Steel Crab, Mist Ninja, Waterform, Water Dragon ----------- This area contains a lot of water that you cannot cross, so you have to take quite a few detours along the way. It's also quite full of random battles, so make sure you're prepared with some Stamina and Chakra-related items. Firstly, head north and west along the southern edge. When you see two trees, one on either side of a path, go through them and stright ahead to a basket in the northwest containing a Gama Seal Ration Pill. Go east around the trees and to the far eastern edge, where there is a basket to the south with another Gama Seal Ration Pill. Go back a little ways west and exit north. Here, you come to a T junction. To the right side is submerged stepping stones that you cannot cross, so head left. Follow the path around the water, then when you hit the north side, go directly east. To the southeast of this part is a Happou Shuriken, and to the northeast is the exit. In this area, navigate south around the various pools until you see a narrow path south. Follow it in a spiral: south, east, north, west, to find a basket with a Defence Pill. Go back to the main part and exit to the northeast. First thing to do in this area is go south around the trees and exit west to find a basket with Shuma Footwear. Go back east. Here, just cross the two bridges east and ignore the submerged stepping stones. Heal up at the Konoha mark and exit north. Here, Naruto decides to show off and says that he sees something on the right, and tosses a shuriken at it. Sakura comes up, sees nothing, and whacks him. He sees something to the left, jumps up, and fires off a shuriken. Kakashi is alarmed and tells them to dive down. They do so and Sasuke evacuates Tazuna to the south. Three shuriken come shooting in, missing the group. The camera moves north and we see that the shooter is a ninja with a rather large sword. He sees that the chuunin were out of their league against "Kakashi of the Sharingan". Kakashi identifies the ninja as Momochi Zabuza, a missing-nin from the Hidden Mist Village. Naruto runs forward to confront him but Kakashi stops him, saying that Zabuza is far more dangerous than the ones they faced before. He orders them to look after Tazuna while he fights Zabuza. Sasuke is still reeling from the mention of the Sharingan. Kakashi reveals his Sharingan eye, and Naruto asks Sasuke what it is. Sasuke says that the Sharingan is an eye jutsu that allows the user to see and defend against any jutsu. Zabuza intercedes and reveals that the Sharingan can also allow the user to copy the jutsu he sees. "The one who has copied over 1000 jutsu...Copy Ninja Kakashi!" Sasuke is confused, as the Sharingan is a trait exclusive to the Uchiha bloodline. Zabuza teleports to the large stretch of water and calls "Ninpou! Hidden Mist no Jutsu!" The area is filled with mist, and the three genin are confused. Kakashi says that Zabuza was, as a member of the Hidden Mist's Anbu, an expert in silent killing. He tells them to hang back and continue protecting Tazuna. Sasuke feels the killing energy and starts shaking, but Kakashi tells him he's not one to let his comrades die. Zabuza then appears in front of you. ------------- Boss: Zabuza Attacks: Physical EXP: 270 Items: None ------------- He'll just use straight attacks on you, so have Naruto return the favor. Kakashi will use Raiton jutsu, so Sasuke should do the same. Sakura should use Inner Sakura to speed her up, then use non-Suiton offensive jutsu. He's got about 1000HP, so be prepared for a long fight. Zabuza clones himself and stabs Kakashi in the back, but that is also a clone and the real Kakashi appears behind Zabuza. Then yet another Zabuza appears behind Kakashi using the Water Clone. Kakashi speeds off to the water, but Zabuza appears behind him and uses Water Prison. Then the other Zabuza faces the three genin and Tazuna. He calls you pathetic fake ninjas and knocks Naruto over. Kakashi shouts at you to take Tazuna and run, as a Water Clone cannot go far from its real body. The group goes to leave, but Naruto mulls a bit and announces that he won't run, xand he has a plan. He talks about his dream of becoming Hokage, then Sasuke and Sakura join him. Kakashi shouts at them to run, that it was over when he was caught and their mission is to protect Tazuna. Tazuna says all of this was his fault and to go ahead and fight. ---------------- Boss: Zabuza x2 Attacks: Physical EXP: 660 Items: Rabbit Scroll ---------------- The Water Clone in the front shouldn't take too long to dispose of with the usual methods, it's weak. If you cause around 500 damage to the real Zabuza, Kakashi will break out of the prison and attack him. Zabuza then uses Suiton Suiryuudan(Water Dragon Blast) no Jutsu on you. Kakashi copies it and uses it back. Kakashi begins to finish Zabuza's sentences, freaking him out a lot. Kakashi then uses Suiton Sui Bakufu(Water Explosion) no Jutsu, Zabuza's unique jutsu, causing 999 damage and ending the battle. Zabuza is then shot from the side by a needle. It is revealed to come from a ninja in a mask, which Kakashi identifies as the mask of a Hidden Mist hunter-nin. Kakashi notices that he's not much older than the group of genin, yet much stronger. The hunter-nin then takes Zabuza's body to dispose of it. The group then cheerfully decide to go on to Tazuna's house, but Kakashi collapses from overuse of the Sharingan. Tazuna says to return to his house and you regain control. Head back to the Konoha mark to heal up, the continue on. From here on you'll fight Mist Ninjas, with Waterforms and Water Dragons. Don't bother with the water monsters, as they'll disappear when you defeat the ninja. There's more submerged stones leading to a chest, but all you can do is exit east. In the next area, navigate through the bends around the water and trees, grabbing a basket with Sugar Mustard in it. Now exit north. This area has nothing for you, just more bends and submerged stones leading to a taunting basket that you can't reach. Exit west and you end up back on the world map. Go back to Konoha to stock up if you need to. --------------- Tazuna's House Items: Icha Icha SLG Enemies: None --------------- Head left, past the Konoha mark, and enter Tazuna's house. Kakashi will be lying in bed, and states that he can't move for a while. Sakura's worried, but Tazuna tells her to leave off, that he's just beaten a great ninja, so he should be allowed to rest. Sakura asks about the child, and Kakashi tells her it's an Anbu from Hidden Mist, a hunter-nin. Naruto asks what it means. (First choice: I don't know. Second choice: I know) Kakashi explains that hunter-nin hunt down ninjas that have betrayed their villages, and are specialists in pursuit. It is necessary to do this, because the escapees carry the village's secrets in their bodies, such as his own Sharingan. Therefore, the bodies must be completely disposed of. Then Kakashi remembers something amiss about the hunter-nin's methods... Cut to the hunter-nin, who is revealed to only have knocked Zabuza out, and is in fact his partner, Haku! Back to Tazuna's house, the gang decide to take a look at Kakashi's face. Sasuke says he has no interest, until Naruto taunts him. Then they're about to when Kakashi wakes up! Kakashi reveals that Zabuza wasn't really killed and he's still out there. (Choices: I don't understand, I understand) Everyone's shocked, and Kakashi again states that they cannot face Zabuza, so they need training. Then a kid called Inari shows up, and starts insulting ninja, which Naruto doesn't respond well to. He talks about Gatou and how the three can't hope to stand up to him. Naruto gets annoyed, and demands they start their training. Kakashi then takes you and plans to train you to focus your chakra by walking up trees. You then regain control. ----------- Swamplands Items: Gama Seal Ration Pill x2, Happou Shuriken, Defence Pill, Shuma Footwear, Sugar Mustard Enemies: Gatou Gang, Iron Crab, Shuriken Starfish, Shuriken Demon Starfish, Kunoichi, Pirate, Steel Crab, Mist Ninja, Waterform, Water Dragon ----------- You are now back in the first screen of the Swamplands. There's no Kakashi to help this time, so you should level up as much as you can and have Sasuke and Sakura equipped with multi-hit weapons. Go wandering around and level up as much as you want, then return to the Swamplands entrace, talk to Kakashi and pick the second option. He then begins your proper training. Sakura hits Naruto as usual for stupidity, then the other three wander off. Naruto awakens to see Haku there, and the two have a conversation about people who are important to you. It also has the famous line: "By the way, I'm a guy." "WHAAAT?! But he's cuter than Sakura-chan!" Sakura and Sasuke then return and you form a party again. You'll now find you can go up those small cliffs that barred your way before! Just go up to them and hit A. Return to Tazuna's house. --------------- Tazuna's House Items: None Enemies: Waraji, Zouri --------------- Hit the Konoha mark for a heal-up, save, then head inside. There'll be a long exchange at the dinner table, during which Inari will again get annoyed and Naruto will argue, then leave. Tazuna will explain to Kakashi that Inari's father died, then Kakashi explains in turn to Inari that Naruto's the same as him, that he never had any parents. The three return back in and you have the choice of 1) training more, or 2) going to sleep. Go to sleep. The group try to wake Naruto in the middle of the night, but can't. Naruto wakes up eventually, wondering what's going on. Inari's mother says that the rest have gone to the Bridge. Naruto goes after them, but then two people appear and threaten Inari's mother with kidnapping! Inari tries to stop them, and the two head for him, but then...a log?! Kawarimi?! Naruto apologizes for being late, then faces the two. -------------------- Boss: Waraji, Zouri Attacks: None, Raijinken EXP: 90, 80 Items: None -------------------- These enemies have little stamina and not-so-good jutsu, so you should be fine. Use Tajuu Kage Bunshin to start off. Zouri has the elemental attack and less Stamina, so finish him off first, then take out Waraji. An easy battle. Inari now accepts Naruto as a big brother figure and recognizes that heroes can exist. Naruto then heads off. Cut to the others, who are in the Swamplands. They talk about Naruto, then you gain control of Sasuke. ----------- Swamplands Items: Gama Seal Ration Pill x2, Happou Shuriken, Defence Pill, Shuma Footwear, Sugar Mustard Enemies: Gatou Gang, Iron Crab, Shuriken Starfish, Shuriken Demon Starfish, Kunoichi, Pirate, Steel Crab, Mist Ninja, Waterform, Water Dragon ----------- Now you should return to the Bridge. Go by the main exit to the west, since it's closest. ------- Bridge Items: Gama Seal Ration Pill, All-Purpose Pill, Speed Pill, Fighting Mail, Stamina Pill Enemies: Kabuki, Gatou Gang, Pirate, Water Dragon, Mist Ninja, Shuriken Starfish, Thief ------- You'll hear that ominous music again, and random battles will start to pop up here. Head east over the small wooden platforms. When you (finally) get the chance to go north, head on to the main bridge. Go right to grab a Speed Pill, then head left a bit until you can go north. Here, you can go north and east to the next screen, or wander off west to pick up a Gama Seal Ration Pill and an All-Purpose Pill. Anyway, to the next screen... Just head east on this screen, picking up Fighting Mail and a Stamina Pill on the way. You'll have to use the small wooden bridge at the bottom to avoid the obstruction. Konoha mark here. Yeah, we all know what that means. Head east. You'll see some collapsed people here, which shocks Tazuna. The place then fills with mist, which Kakashi immediately recognizes as the work of Zabuza. Zabuza then speaks up, showing up with three Water Clones, which Sasuke dispatches. The real Zabuza then shows up with Haku. Kakashi reinforces the fact that the genin can't beat Zabuza no matter how much training they say they've done, so they agree to handle Haku. ------------------- Boss: Zabuza, Haku Attacks: Suiton Suiryuudan, Thousand Kill Crystals EXP: 0, 0 Items: None ------------------- If Kakashi didn't stress it enough, I will. DO NOT FIGHT ZABUZA. He has unlimited Stamina, and you cannot beat him. Concentrate on Haku. Have Sasuke use his Shishi Rendan, and Sakura use Inner Sakura L1. The fight should be over in two rounds. Zabuza calls them brats, and Kakashi says that those brats are his team, pointing out that Sasuke is Konoha's Number 1 Rookie and Sakura's the prettiest in Konoha. He also says that there's one other who's not present, the number 1 loud ninja, Naruto! Haku then laughs and uses his Secret Jutsu, Demonic Ice Mirrors! Kakashi is astonished that he's never seen anything like it before. Then Naruto appears, declaring it's all alright because he's there. Zabuza shoots a shuriken at him, but Haku intercepts it, asking to leave Naruto to him. Naruto and Sasuke go ahead to face Haku, while Sakura looks after Tazuna and Kakashi faces Zabuza. Bloodline limits such as the Sharingan are explained, and then you are healed and battle. ----------- Boss: Haku Attacks: Thousand Kill Crystals EXP: 0 Items: None ----------- Do nothing for this battle. It's just an event battle, the point is that he wears Naruto down. When Naruto falls, Sasuke will yell at him to get up, but to no avail. Haku reactivates his Demonic Ice Mirrors, but then...Sasuke's Sharingan awakens and he dodges the shots! Haku realizes Sasuke also has a bloodline limit. Haku aims his Demonic Ice Mirrors for Naruto again, but Sasuke gets in the way and takes huge damage, then falls, beating Haku in the process. Naruto gets up, and talks to Sasuke, who then collapses. He talks about wanting to kill his older brother. Naruto get ever-so-slightly upset and nine tails appear! He's become infused with Kyuubi power! The fight resumes! ----------- Boss: Haku Attacks: Thousand Kill Crystals EXP: 320 Items: None ----------- Welcome to Kyuubi chakra, you'll love this. Basically, in this fight, whatever you do doesn't use up any chakra, and you're super-fast. Haku's stamina has gone way down, so if you use a Kage Bunshin and attack, he should be finished. Haku then reveals his true face, shocking Naruto. He then goes on about his devotion to Zabuza, and Naruto begins to compare that to Iruka. He then asks Naruto to kill him. They go on for a while, then Naruto agrees reluctantly. Haku, however, suddenly realizes Zabuza's in trouble and zips away. In the other battle, Kakashi is about to use Raikiri on Zabuza...but then Haku jumps in the way! Haku drops and Kakashi goes back to fighting Zabuza. Sakura asks about Sasuke, and Naruto can't reply, so her and Tazuna run off to check on him. Then Gatou shows up with his gang. He reveals he never had any intention of paying Zabuza and just intends to off him. He kicks Haku, and Zabuza shows no feelings of remorse. Naruto goes and yells at him, asking if Haku really meant nothing to him. Zabuza tells him to be quiet, that this is something Naruto can't understand. Gatou then sends his gang at the group, but Zabuza speeds past them and throws a kunai into Gatou, knocking him off the bridge. Then one of the gang throws one at him, and he collapses, saying goodbye to Haku. Meanwhile, Sasuke wakes up and Sakura is overjoyed. She goes to tell Naruto, who's also happy. Then a few of Gatou's gang come to attack you, and Kakashi says he can't use the Raikiri again, so...fight time! ------------------- Boss: Gatou Gang(4) Attacks: Gimme! EXP: 50(each) Items: None ------------------- 60 stamina each. Just like a normal fight. Take them out. Next, Inari shows up with the villagers! He's rallied them to help! Naruto decides to also help and uses Kage Bunshin. Kakashi does the same. The gang are terrified and flee. Zabuza asks Kakashi to be placed by Haku. Kakashi complies. Naruto remarks that Zabuza was born in a place like this, where snow fell heavily. The group then all decide to return home. They say goodbye to everyone from the Wave Country, and Naruto has another small argument with Inari. The group head off, Naruto looking forward to ramen with Iruka, and Sakura asking Sasuke on a date, to which he declines. Naruto volunteers, but Sakura tells him to shut up. The villagers of the Wave country wonder about a name for the bridge, but Tazuna decides it will be called the Great Naruto Bridge! You now regain control. Head back to Konoha(finally). ----------------- 5.6) Chuunin Exam, Begin! ----------------- ------- Konoha Items: None Enemies: None ------- Off you go up to the mission room in the academy to collect your reward of 3500 ryou, a Stamina Pill, a Chakra Pill, Secret Medicine and Falcon Gaiters! Kakashi then leaves, and Naruto goes off to eat ramen with Iruka. You wake up the next morning ready for your next mission. Head for the mission room. Naruto asks what today's mission is, but the Hokage says that there's no mission today for you to do! Naruto whines to Kakashi, but he says it'll all be explained tomorrow, and to go then to the Shinto archway at the east of the village. The team have some banter, Sakura suggests going to Kakashi's house, and you regain control. Do what she says, head for Kakashi's house in the east wing of town. Of course, he's not there. They talk about teamwork, Sakura fixes Kakashi's clock, and Sasuke compares Sakura to Naruto, annoying her. Naruto invites Sakura to go training, and she considers that even if it is with Naruto, she needs to practice her jutsu. So they decide to head for the training ground. Do exactly that. ---------------- Training Ground Items: None Enemies: Snake, Crow, Boar, Kankurou, Temari ---------------- Heal up at the mark, then go ahead into the next screen. Neruto immediately fires up for training, insisting he won't lose to Sasuke. Then he looks around, and spots Konohamaru. Konohamaru says he expected Naruto, his rival! Naruto's a bit confused, but then Konohamaru asks him to play ninja with him. (Play, Train) Either way it'll end up continuing the story, but "Play" decreases your compatibility rating with Sakura. Sakura says that it's stupid for a ninja to play ninja, and Konohamaru marks her as a scary person. He then asks if Sakura's Naruto's girlfriend. Sakura says "NO WAY!!" and smacks Naruto down, which annoys Konohamaru. He insults Sakura, who zips behind him, then chases after him, until he runs into...Kankurou, who's not impressed by this. Sakura apologizes, but Naruto jumps in and insults Kankurou. Kankurou trips Naruto with his chakra strings, and Naruto's shocked. Then a fight begins. ----------------------- Boss: Kankurou, Temari Attacks: Get Ready! EXP: 320, 320 Items: Dragon Scroll ----------------------- As with your usual fights, Naruto should Kage Bunshin up and attack, while Sakura lets loose with Inner Sakura L2. They both have low Stamina, so the battle shouldn't last long. Naruto acts cocky, but Kankurou states they were going easy on them. He goes for more, but then a shuriken stops him, thrown by Sasuke, who proceeds to insult them more. Kankurou is ready to attack him, but Gaara shows up and tells him to stop. Sasuke's amazed by this stealth, at the same level as Kakashi's. Kankurou speaks, but Gaara tells him to shut up, and Kankurou meekly apologizes. Gaara moves to leave with the others, but Sakura stops them, asking if they're from Hidden Sand. She wonders why they're in the Fire Country, and wants to know their plans. Temari tells her they're there for the Chuunin Exam. (Explain, It's OK) The Chuunin Exam is held twice a year for genin to compete for chuunin level. It's held in different villages to maintain the power balance. Gaara and Sasuke then express an interest in each other, but Naruto interrupts. Gaara says that he has no interest in Naruto and the three leave. Sasuke states that they were interesting, and Naruto again declares he won't lose to him. Sakura asks if they could stop fighting for today. The group then leave, agreeing to meet at the archway the next day, as arranged. After they leave, the Hidden Sound team shows up, and they don't think much of the Konoha genin. ----------------------- 5.6.1) Round One: Exam? ----------------------- ------- Konoha Items: None Enemies: Rock Lee ------- You'll be back in Naruto's house the next morning. Exit and head for the far east part of town, to the archway past Gai's tent. Sasuke and Sakura will be waiting for you there. Talk to Sakura. The group then stands around waiting for Kakashi...for 3 hours... They get fed up, and are about to leave when he appears with another stupid excuse. He says he's signed the three up for the Chuunin Exam, but it's up to them if they want to show up and take it. Sakura's a bit nervous, but Naruto's energetic as always. Kakashi tells them to meet in Classroom 301 in the Academy to take part. He then leaves. Naruto and Sasuke wander off to enter, but Sakura's still worried about it. She follows them anyway, and you regain control. Head for the Academy. The three enter, but Sakura's shaking. Naruto asks her what's wrong, and she doesn't really want to take the exam. Sasuke calls at her and tells her she has excellent analysis and genjutsu skills, and she's the best on their team at it. Naruto agrees. Sakura then thanks them and decides to go on with them. They are stopped by a guy on the balcony, who asks for a fight. His teammates, Neji and Tenten, think it's foolish, but he wants to. Neji has a brief exchange with Sasuke, being unimpressed that a rookie's participating. The guy jumps down and introduces himself as Rock Lee. He wants to fight the famous Uchiha Sasuke, and says he'll fight for Sakura's heart, which makes her sick to her stomach. Naruto jumps in, wanting to fight instead, but Lee's too fast, aniling him with a Konoha Reppuu to the back and sending him flying into the wall. Sasuke and Lee then go to fight. --------------- Boss: Rock Lee Attacks: Konoha Senpuu EXP: 320 Items: None --------------- Use your first Sharingan ability to increase the chance of a critical hit, then Shishi Rendan him into the ground. Lee says that Sasuke's Sharingan may give him insight into ninjutsu and genjutsu, but Lee only uses taijutsu, so even if Sasuke can see what he's doing, he's not nearly fast enough to counter it. Lee is about to use "that technique" until he's stopped by his instructor, Gai, who appears and chides him for almost breaking their rule. He then punishes Lee by insisting he do 500 laps after the exam, which Lee accepts. Gai then introduces himself to the team as Kakashi's (superior!) rival. The other team then head in, after Lee blows a kiss at Sakura and she dodges, disgusted. You regain control. You're heading for 301, which is the top room on the third floor. So head up the stairs on the right, exit right then head upstairs again. The gang runs into Kakashi, who says that it's actually a team event, and you can't enter unless you're in a team of 3. He said it was individual so that nobody wouldbe pressured by the others into going against their will, and he's proud that they all decided to show up. (Wait a while, OK) When you choose OK, he moves and you enter. As soon as you go in, Ino appears and fangirls all over Sasuke, much to Sakura's disgust. Naruto steps back and identifies all of the other Konoha genin entering. There's Ino(super-fangirl), Shikamaru(super-lazy), Chouji(super-pig), Kiba(dog lover), Hinata(has a crush on Naruto) and Shino(who?). Kabuto then shows up and explains the exam, and says that he's done it for seven years, so he has fact-sheets on everyone entering. Sasuke asks for Lee's and Gaara's, which he provides. Lee's done lots of missions and is a taijutsu specialist, while Gaara's done plenty of missions, including a B-rank, and never had a scratch. Naruto gives his "I WON'T LOSE TO ALL OF YOU!!" line, and everyone goes into the exam. Everyone sits at their desks, and the examiner of the first round, Morino Ibiki, appears. He explains that the first test is a seal entry test. (Listen to the rules, Don't listen) There'll be 10 sequences, and you have to enter them before time's up, just like in jutsu entry. (OK, One more time) Of course, I have a list of the seals here, in case you want to be prepared. (u = up, d = down, l = left, r = right, ABLR = ABLR buttons) 1: A, A, B, A, A 2: u, d, u, d, u, d 3: A x 12 4: u, d, l, r, B, A 5: R, L, R, L, A, R, L, B, B 6: A x 12 7: B, r, d, l, B, r, d, l 8: l, u, r, d, l, u, r, d, l, A 9: A, B, B, A, A, R, L, B, A, A 10:A x 12 Afterwards, Ibiki says that you pass and go on to the next round. Now, with a shower of kunai...Mitarashi Anko enters! She's the examiner for the second round, and claims that the first round must have been too soft to let this many through. The next round is to be set in Area 44...the Forest of Death! You regain control now, so exit the academy and head for the world map, healing and picking up supplies on the way. There'll be a new area on the map to the left of Konoha: The Forest of Death. Go there. -------------------------------------- 5.6.2) Round Two: The Forest of Death -------------------------------------- ---------------- Forest of Death Items: Great Seal Ration Pillx5, Great Seal Chakra Pill, Chakra Pill, Scripture Mail, Marshmallow, Gama Seal Ration Pill, Tiger Claws, Muramasa, Dragon Shuriken, Hardboiled Egg, Stamina Pill, Lost Scroll 4 Enemies: Bloodsucker Bat, Snake Shadow, White Tiger, Grass Ninja, Shinobi Boar, Bloodsucker Leech, Shinobi Bat, Shinobi Crow, Ninja Tiger, Mountaineer, Rain Ninja, ???, Kin, Dosu, Zaku, Oboro, Mubi, Kagari ---------------- Anko explains that this round is a survival test. Inside the forest, anything goes. Each team gets a Heaven scroll or an Earth scroll, and they have to make it to the center with both scrolls. (OK!, Let's not go) Your team gets the Heaven scroll and enters at Gate 12. Second round, begin! I'm telling you now, you will loathe this area. Barely any Konoha marks, random battles every few steps, the enemies(even animals!) can use jutsu, and to top it off, it's a big maze. Not fun. But anyway. I'm assuming you want to collect all of the items from here, so that's the directions I'll be giving. Head north, and left. Go around the square to grab a basket. Go back to the crossroads, and head right behind the tree. Walk over the exposed branch to grab the basket on the other side. Go back across, and walk right. The lower path is blocked, so go by the upper path and over the branch. Head left and navigate the roots to pick up a Scripture Mail, then return. Go over the top roots and take the lower path to pick up a Marshmallow, then the upper route off the roots. Go to the far right here to grab another basket, then south behind the tree. Go halfway over the next roots, then south to pick up a Grest Seal Ration Pill, then back and the whole way over the roots. Now go south for a real godsend - a Konoha mark! Head left to grab a Muramasa(equip it to Naruto). Heal up at the mark again, then save. You know what's coming. Go south. Naruto is blown away by...who's this? Battle! --------------------- Boss: ???(Orochimaru) Attacks: Killing Intent EXP: 0 Items: None --------------------- You're paralyzed. Nothing you can do but watch him beat you down. Naruto shows up again, confident as ever, but Sasuke sensibly realizes that there's no way they can beat someone like this, and he gives up the scroll. Naruto zips forward and thwacks Sasuke, and Sasuke tells him he doesn't know what he's doing. Naruto then runs at Orochimaru, but is easily knocked away. And again. Sasuke does the whole older brother angst thing again, then the three face up to Orochimaru. --------------------- Boss: ???(Orochimaru) Attacks: Seal Jutsu, Fuuton 3 Scrolls EXP: 12000 Items: Serpent Scroll --------------------- Another event battle, so just attack until everyone but Sasuke is dead. Your next attack will take him out. Orochimaru then proceeds to use a Five Element Seal on Naruto, paralyze the other two and introduce himself. He says that Sasuke is nowhere near Itachi's level, to Sasuke's amazement. He then steals the scroll and performs a Curse Seal on Sasuke, leaving Sasuke and Naruto knocked out and Sakura extremely scared. She runs off to see if she can find something to help. You now have control of Sakura. Heal up, then head south. Not much of a playing chance, because it brings you right back for another story sequence. Sakura says that there doesn't seem to be any enemy teams nearby, so she takes Sasuke and Naruto to the base of a tree until they wake up. She gets panicked about them not waking up, and then to add to it, the Sound team shows up. They want to fight Sasuke. Sakura asks then about Orochimaru, and they're caught a bit off-guard. Zaku then wants to kill both Sakura and Sasuke, but Dosu stops him. Then...who appears but the Beautiful Green Beat of Konoha, Rock Lee! He's sworn to rescue her from any pinch. The group enter in a battle. ---------------------- Boss: Kin, Dosu, Zaku Attacks: Bell Sound Needles, Resonance Drill, Great Killing Wave EXP: 450(each) Items: None ---------------------- You have Sakura and Lee for this fight. Sakura should use Inner Sakura L2 and Lee should use Konoha Senpuu. Lee will talk about the secret technique Gai taught him, and then state that it's worth it to protect an important person. He will then let loose with Omote Renge, for 999 damage to Dosu. Battle over. Lee's body is still recovering, so Dosu uses his chance to let rip a Resonance Drill, which downs Lee. Sakura tosses a shuriken at Dosu, but Zaku reflects it. Kin appears behind Sakura and is ready to take her, but Sakura gets inspired by what Lee said about protecting important people, and she stands in front of Sasuke and Naruto. Fight time! ---------------------- Boss: Kin, Dosu, Zaku Attacks: Bell Sound Needles, Resonance Drill, Great Killing Wave EXP: 200(each) Items: None ---------------------- Oh *dear*. Only Sakura this time around. Kick off with a Bunshin no Jutsu. They should have great pains hitting you now. Once you have that, keep calling Inner Sakura L2. It'll take a couple of rounds, but you'll beat them. Sakura's fierce about protecting her comrades now, but the three still seem to be outnumbering her, but...Formation! InoShikaChou! Team 8 show up, and Ino insists she promises she won't lose to Sakura! She won't let Sakura be the only one looking good in front of Sasuke! She then volunteers Shikamaru to face the Sound. Moaning, he accepts, and battle! ---------------------- Boss: Kin, Dosu, Zaku Attacks: Bell Sound Needles, Resonance Drill, Great Killing Wave EXP: 200(each) Items: None ---------------------- Again. Sakura's chakra is refilled again, so use the same tactics as you did last time around. Both should use Bunshin no Jutsu, then Shikamaru should paralyze with his Kagemane and act as healer, while Sakura pummels them with Inner Sakura L2. Dosu then states that their objective isn't the exam, it's Sasuke. But who shows up this time, but Neji and Tenten, come looking for Lee! They have an exchange, then Sasuke wakes up. His eyes are glowing red, and the curse seal is activating. He asks who did this to Sakura. The Sound-nins recognize the curse seal immediately as Orochimaru's. Sasuke zips down to face the Sounds, who are taken aback by the huge power radiating from him. Battle! ---------------------- Boss: Kin, Dosu, Zaku Attacks: Bell Sound Needles, Resonance Drill, Great Killing Wave EXP: 200(each) Items: None ---------------------- Last time, I swear. Sasuke's in the full grips of the curse seal now, so he's at 999 Stamina and Chakra, but all of his jutsu are sealed except for Fuuma Shuriken and Shishi Rendan. Sakura's Chakra's also not refilled this time. Use a combination of Sasuke's Shishi Rendan and Inner Sakura to defeat them, this time for good. Sakura states that it looks like they've defeated them, but Sasuke goes ahead and starts beating up Zaku. He's acting really strange, getting (more) sadistic. Sakura goes and stops him, and the curse seal withdraws. Dosu admits defeat for now, and hands over a scroll, insisting it'll be different next time. Sakura asks about Orochimaru, but they just leave. Neji notes the huge chakra and wonders about the Uchiha clan, and Sakura asks if Sasuke's alright. He says he's alright, but wonders what happened to him. Sakura notices the seal's gone back. Shikamaru then kicks Naruto awake, who acts his usual loud self. Tenten yells at Lee for leaving, then Naruto pokes fun at Lee, but Sakura defends him, whacking Naruto away. She thanks Lee, and says that he helped her wake up. Lee thanks her too, and the group leaves. Team 8 also leave. Sakura notes they now have an Earth scroll, and your party returns to normal. Naruto's at 1 Stamina and Sakura's weakened from the previous fights, so head up to the nearby Konoha mark and heal/save. You'll notice that Sasuke remains sealed for now, so he's still only got those two jutsu. Back to forest trekking! You've still got a good long way to go, so don't relax yet. Head back down to where you fought the Sound, then head east, staying close to the south. You'll come to a point where you can go east, north or south. Keep to the east, going behind the tree. Head east here to pick up a Stamina Pill, then go all the way north until you hit another crossroads. Go north and west to grab a Great Seal Ration Pill, then a little east and north, exiting into the (sort of) light. The gang see some water and decide to rest up there. They start talking about the scroll they still need, and Sasuke heads off to find drinking water. Naruto suggests opening the scroll, and Sakura thwacks him. Kabuto then pops in and asks if they've forgotten the rules. Sasuke then returns. Kabuto explains that if you open the scroll, there's a jutsu in it which knocks you out, forcing you to forfeit. He says that there's no danger of him wanting their scroll, since he already has both. Sasuke wants to fight him for the Heaven scroll, but Kabuto says that he'll help you get it yourself. (Teach me, don't teach me) He then teaches you to break rocks. Head east and break the rock, then pick up a Hardboiled Egg. Exit south, back into the forest. You're going east now, folowing the straightforward path south over the roots to the southern exit. You'll start running into other ninjas here, so have Sakura's healing jutsu at the ready. Head south from here and past the tree. In the southeast there's a tree with a Great Seal Ration Pill in front of it, then to the right of it there's a Lost Scroll 4. Head back west to the huge tree and go north. See that on the left? No, that's not an illusion, it really IS a Konoha mark. Heal up and grab the two baskets here. I recommend levelling up so you can beat the enemies around here easily. Next, head back around to the main path and exit north. Hey, I know this place! Yep, you're back at the start of this screen again. Don't question, just go around, heal, save and exit again. Head south a bit for a cutscene. Kabuto notices something's wrong...they've gone the same way over and over! 6 ninjas appear around them. Naruto attacks one, but is beaten back. Sasuke uses his Sharingan and tosses a shuriken at another, but it...goes through? That one then tosses a kunai at Sasuke, but Kabuto intervenes and grabs it. Naruto identifies them as Bunshins, but Kabuto says he's wrong and that it's genjutsu! Naruto uses his Kage Bunshin and the group attack the ninjas, but with no luck. They then all disappear and the real three are revealed, Mist ninjas! They advance on our team, but...what? Sasuke, Sakura and Kabuto come up behind them? Naruto cheers and the top group is revealed to be Kage Bunshins! He then collapses from loss of chakra, but hops back up and zips over to his team. Sasuke wonders how he recovered so fast. You then go ahead to fight the Mist ninjas. -------------------------- Boss: Oboro, Mubi, Kagari Attacks: Oboro Bunshin, Doton Dochuu Eigyo EXP: 720(each) Items: None -------------------------- This battle is supremely difficult. Not only do they have 1000/980/900 Stamina, but they've some pretty powerful jutsu too. Luckily, their Defense is crappy, so you can hit them hard. Naruto should begin with a Tajuu Kage Bunshin, and Sakura with Inner Sakura L2. Sasuke's curse seal doesn't give him much jutsu range, so just use Shishi Rendan. You should try to take them out one at a time, starting with Oboro and Mubi as they can conjure up clones. If you have Sakura's Anchuu Hiyaku, it'll come in handy here. You may have Naruto's Uzumaki Naruto Rendan, but don't use it as it's a waste of chakra in the long battle, that is, unless you still have the chakra-replenishing items you picked up. A KB-ed attack from the front row should do enough damage by itself. When the battle's over, Naruto runs off to grab the scroll and Sasuke notes that his neck hurts whenever he uses the Sharingan. Naruto's thrilled because it's a Heaven scroll, so now the team has both! Kabuto's team then shows up to pick him up and Kabuto apologizes to them and you, then wishes you luck and you leave. After you're gone, someone asks Kabuto how it went and Kabuto says it was better than expected. Them the someone is revealed to be none other than Orochimaru! Kabuto is a sound spy! Gasp! When you regain control, go heal/save at that mark! Now, exit north to finally escape this accursed place. Don't go back to Konoha yet, instead hit left and your cursor will land on the Forest of Death Tower. Go for it! ---------------------- Forest of Death Tower Items: None Enemies: None ---------------------- Enter the tower. Naruto points out that nobody's there. Sakura points out something on the wall, but Naruto can't read it because of the difficult kanji. The group then decide to open the scrolls, and see the kanji for "person". Sasuke identifies the scrolls as summoning jutsu activators, and tells you to get away. And with a poof, Iruka shows up! He explains that he and other chuunin were to meet up with the passing teams at the goal. He congratualtes you for passing, and offers to take you for ramen. Naruto's, of course, thrilled by passing and doesn't let him finish. Sasuke asks what would happen had he opened the scrolls in the middle of the exam, and Iruka explains that it would've rendered him unable to complete the task within the time limit. Sakura asks what the wall-writing is, and Iruka says it's the Chuunin Motto. "If you lack Heaven, seek wisdom, be prepared". He compares that to Naruto lacking intelligence, and needing to gain wisdom. Part 2 is "If you lack Earth, run in the fields, seek advantages". So for someone like Sakura who lacks stamina, she should continue training hard. "And if you have both Heaven and Earth, you can succeed in even the most dangerous mission". Sakura notices a missing word, and Iruka explains it's the "person" character. The last sentence is "These rules will guide a person's extremes". He then explains what being a chuunin means and to take it easy in the third exam. You can now talk to Iruka for two different things. - Hang on - OK! - Change party members (Lee, Neji, Shikamaru are unlocked) -Change -End - It's alright... - OK! (Go on with the third exam) You can now go level up the group if you want. When you're ready, return to the tower and talk to Iruka. ---------------------------- 5.6.3) Round Three..or not? ---------------------------- -------------- Preliminaries Items: None Enemies: Ino, Yoroi, Kiba, Akamaru -------------- You are now in the hall for the third round! The Hokage greets you and congratulates you for passing the second exam. He explains the true meaning of the exam. To keep up the friendship between the countries, this exam acts as a substitute for war. The clients and leaders will be watching, and the country that looks best will get more clients, while bad-looking ones will get less. He says that it's not just a test, but a life-risking battle with your dreams and the prestige of the country on the line. No pressure, though. Now Gekkou Hayate shows up. He's the referee for the third exam, but first, you must go through prelims as there's too many to enter the third round itself. He asks who wants to quit, and Kabuto steps forward to quit. He then leaves. Sasuuke's considering quitting due to his curse seal, but he doesn't. Hayate explains it's a stright fight between two people for each round. First round: Uchiha Sasuke VS Akadou Yoroi! (Hold on, Begin the fight!) Sasuke faces Yoroi, who seens to know about the curse seal. Kakashi shows up, sends Naruto and Sakura up to the top, and tells Sasuke not to use the Sharingan, as it will activate the curse seal and endanger his life. He then leaves. ------------ Boss: Yoroi Attacks: Chakra Leech EXP: 0 Items: None ------------ You still have no jutsu, so all you can do is Shishi Rendan and use healing items. Go from the front row to maximize damage. If you've sufficiently levelled up, however, your attack strength should be enough to warrant not using Shishi Rendan every round. Especially since he WILL leech a large amount of chakra from you. Hayate announces the winner as Sasuke. Kakashi appears, and takes Sasuke off to seal up the curse seal. In the hospital, Kakashi is sealing up the seal, when in comes Orochimaru! He says that he isn't really interested in Kakashi now, but wants Sasuke. He mentions that Kakashi didn't have the Sharingan last time he saw him. Kakashi says that even if Orochumaru's one of the Sannin, he won't let him get Sasuke. Orochimaru talks some more, then leaves. Kakashi then reappears back at the exam room. Next fight, Haruna Sakura VS Yamanaka Ino, the eternal rivals! ---------- Boss: Ino Attacks: Katon, No no Maki EXP: 0 Items: None ---------- Easy fight. Bunshin no Jutsu followed by Inner Sakura L2 should finish her off quickly. Ino then uses her Shintenshin to take over Sakura's body! She then is about to quit the match as Sakura, but...Inner Sakura's having none of it! Sakura cancels the jutsu and the two resume duking it out. They end up knocking each other out and both losing. Next fight, Uzumaki Naruto VS Inuzuka Kiba! ...and Akamaru. -------------------- Boss: Kiba, Akamaru Attacks: Gatsuuga, Beast Man Bunshin EXP: 0 Items: Horse Scroll -------------------- Use Tajuu Kage Bunshin, then attack Akamaru. Now that Kiba's ally is out of the way, he can't use any partner attacks! Keep thumping away at him, and he's toast. Hinata comes up to Naruto, shaking, and gives him a special ointment for his wounds. The next fights are scrolled through. *Winner - Loser* Shino - Zaku Kankurou - Misumi Temari - Tenten Shikamaru - Kin Neji - Hinata Gaara - Lee Dosu - Chouji And the preliminaries are complete! Now we cut to Kabuto and Orochimaru, who are talking about a war planned between the hidden villages, instigated by the Hidden Sound. Orochimaru plans to use Sasuke's body to make this happen. He talks about how Sasuke's proximity to Naruto has changed him, and how he needs to break them apart before Sasuke loses his vengefulness, which will draw him to Orochimaru. Back to the exam, it is explained that the third round will take place in a month. The prelims was against an unknown enemy, whereas the month gives you time to train and prepare for fighting the known enemy. Everyone leaves and Sakura walks in. She says that Kakashi's with Sasuke in the hospital, and the two decide to go see them. Exit the hall and head for Konoha. ----------------------------------- 5.6.4) Prepare for the Final Test! ----------------------------------- ------- Konoha Items: None Enemies: None ------- Head for the hospital, up in the northern part of the town. As soon as you go in, Naruto starts shouting at Sasuke, asking where he is. Kakashi appears at the stairs, telling him to be quiet in the hospital. He thought you'd be coming, and he found someone to look after your training. Naruto asks why, that Kakashi is fine. Kakashi says that he has things to do, so he can't look after Naruto. Naruto says he must be training Sasuke, but Kakashi says to not talk like that, and he's found a better teacher than him to instruct Naruto. And guess who it is? Ebisu. Yes, Konohamaru's annoying instructor, the closet pervert. The two obviously can't stand each other, but Kakashi explains that Ebisu is an elite instructor and a Special Jounin, so he's a good teacher to have. He then leaves and Ebisu tells you you'll be training at the Training Basin. Walk over and talk to him to take people in your party. You can't choose Sasuke, obviously. When you have a party, you can go train up yourself, or go with Ebisu. When you go with him, he takes you outside. Leave Konoha and head for the Training Basin, a new area beyong Kikyou Ridge. --------------- Training Basin Items: Bean Jam, Scripture Gaiters Enemies: None --------------- Ebisu announces he's going to teach you to...walk on water! He demonstrates, and Naruto is amazed. There's a call of "Pervert!" and Ebisu goes off to investigate. He's then knocked out by...the Toad Hermit, Jiraiya! Naruto nicknames his Ero-Sennin(pervert hermit). Jiraiya then says he writes Icha Icha Paradise (the dirty stuff Kakashi's always reading). Naruto calls him a filthy pervert, but Jiraiya objects, saying he's getting inspiration for his works. Naruto demands he finish the training that Ebisu started, since he also knows about walking on water. Jiraiya flatly refuses, but then Naruto bribes him with his Oiroke no Jutsu! Jiraiya's gobsmacked and asks that Naruto stay like that during his training, then Naruto changes back and calls him a filthy pervert again. He then agrees to teach you to walk on water. He says he'll teach you a brilliant technique, but you have to find 4 lost pages of his. You are now charged with the finding task, and you can talk to Jiraiya to change around your party. I suggest taking Sakura and Shikamaru, because it is a necessity that you level up Shikamaru during this. When you've picked your party, select the bottom option to go look for the pages. When you've gone, Jiraiya apologixes to Ebisu for interrupting. Ebisu asks why Jiraiya's returned to the village, and if it's because of Orochimaru. Jiraiya says no, he's just looking for material for his books. Ebisu lectures him a bit, since Jiraiya's one of the legendary Sannin along with Orochimaru, and says he must help out. You're now on the World Map. Head back into the Training Basin. Open the basket hidden behind the Konoha mark for Bean Jam, then head across the water at the submerged stepping-stones for Jiraiya and a basket containing Scripture Gaiters. Leave. You've now got the ability to walk over those stepping-stones, so the pages are obviously going to be in places those stones exist. These stones are in Konoha Forest, the Great Plains, the Swamplands, and the Forest of Death. You can do it in any order, but I'm going by order of the pages. -------------- Konoha Forest Items: Lost Page 1, Nattou Enemies:Snake, Pig, Small Fry Ninja, Bodyguard, Centipede, Konoha Ninja -------------- Head all the way to the center of the forest, where you fought the Tiger. (As a side note, now that you have the cliff-scaling jutsu Kakashi taught you, you can get a Cup Ramen, Sweet Chestnuts and Dragon Gaiters at the area with the centipedes.) When you hit the center, walk over the water and grab the Lost Page 1 from the basket. There's another basket with Nattou right under it. Use Shikamaru's Shunshin no Jutsu to escape, if you have him. If not, you have to walk all the way out again. ------------- Great Plains Items: Lost Page 2, 150 ryou Enemies: Reckless Boar, Samurai, Tiger, Hip Pouch, Konoha Ninja, Lord of Ruin ------------- You're heading for the fourth screen now, the one with the little bridge. Also, if you take the first right in the first screen, you can use the cliffs as a shortcut down, picking up Hawk's Claws on the way. When you get to the bridge, cross it then head immediately down along the right side of the river. You'll see submerged stepping stones, just follow them the whole way down and you'll hit two baskets with Lost Page 2 and 150 ryou. Exit the area. ----------- Swamplands Items: Lost Page 3 Enemies: Gatou Gang, Iron Crab, Shuriken Starfish, Shuriken Demon Starfish, Kunoichi, Pirate, Steel Crab, Mist Ninja, Waterform, Water Dragon ----------- Remember that area where you fought Zabuza for the first time? Yeah, right before that, by the Konoha mark. It's in the fourth screen, in case you forget. Go south over the stepping-stones, and grab the Lost Page 3 from the basket. Not much to it. Exit. ---------------- Forest of Death Items: Lost Page 4, Cursed Vest, Cursed Gaiters Enemies: Bloodsucker Bat, Snake Shadow, White Tiger, Grass Ninja, Shinobi Boar, Bloodsucker Leech, Shinobi Bat, Shinobi Crow, Ninja Tiger, Mountaineer, Rain Ninja ---------------- Welcome back. I bet you swore you'd never come here again. Anyway, you're heading for the little outdoor patch where Kabuto taught you to break rocks, off the second screen. Break the rocks, cross the river and grab the Lost Page 4. There's two other items here, but beware! If you equip these items they give you some nice stat boosts, but you'll permanently be under Cursed status, disabling most of your jutsu. Exit the area. You can't use Shunshin here, so you just have to keep going and ou the other side. Now that you have all 4 pages, return to Jiraiya in the Training Basin. --------------- Training Basin Items: None Enemies: None --------------- Head across the stones and talk to Jiraiya. He's thrilled that you found the pages, and gives you an Icha Icha License. He then says he wants to teach you alone. Naruto thanks his two other members and they leave. Jiraiya can sense the seal Orochimaru placed on Naruto in the Forest of Death to block off the Kyuubi chakra, so he undoes it. He explains that Naruto has two types of chakra, his own and the Kyuubi's. He says that Naruto will need the red Kyuubi chakra for this jutsu. But Naruto has trouble calling it, it only comes when he's out of his own or desperate. Jiraiya explains that the jutsu he's teaching is called Kuchiyose(summoning). He takes out a scroll and gets Naruto to mark it. Naruto begins to attempt the jutsu, but no luck. 3 weeks later...nothing. Naruto's still trying, but he's running out of chakra completely. Jiraiya thinks of his former pupil, the Fourth Hokage, and how Naruto's a little similar to him. He then tosses Naruto off a cliff(!). Naruto's falling, thinking he's going to die, then he enters his own head and sees...the Kyuubi! He demands the chakra from the Kyuubi, since he's out of his own and if he dies so does the Kyuubi. They Kyuubi gives him chakra, and Naruto performs the Kuchiyose...calling a huge toad, Gamabunta! Naruto and Gamabunta argue a bit, Gamabunta thinking him a little brat and Naruto trying to assert himself, which eventually ends in Naruto calling Gamabunta "Boss Gama". Naruto then collapses from the loss of chakra. Naruto has now learned to summon Gamabunta! ------- Konoha Items: None Enemies: None ------- Naruto wakes up in Konoha Hospital with Shikamaru over him, who explains that he passed out. Sakura shows up and says she's been coming every day to see Sasuke and Lee, so she came to Naruto too. Sasuke's gone, and Lee's in because he injured his body in his fight with Gaara. (Go to see Lee, Go to see Sasuke) The party reforms as Naruto, Sakura and Shikamaru, and you head off. Go out and upstairs, into the room with the completely open door. Gaara's there, looking over Lee. He's mulling over Lee being saved by Gai. The gang walk in, and are surprised to see Gaara there. He's considering killing Lee. It doesn't matter to him that he won the match. He considers killing them too, if they're getting in his way. (Choice: Number 1 increases Sakura's compatibility but decreases Shikamaru's) Naruto pipes up and Shikamaru agrees, saying it's 3 against 1. Gaara implies it's not just him, and repeats he'll kill them if they get in his way. Gaara says that Shukaku of the Sand lives there too, and he'll help him. He kills to validate his existence. Gaara's about to get them, when Gai pops in, saying all of this isn't necessary. Gaara gets annoyed at seeing him interrupt again, and leaves, saying to wait, he'll get them for certain. Gai asks what they're doing there, since the match is tomorrow, but Naruto says they're there to see Lee, which makes Gai cheerful. He thinks they've just come to talk to him about the match tomorrow and gets ready to give advice. You regain control. You can now go off and train (again) or go for the next match. Talk to Gai and pick the second option to go for it. Gai's big advice? Go to bed early! Sigh...The other two encourage you, and you go off. You wake up the next morning bursting with energy and ready for your first match against Neji. Naruto decides to go to the Training Ground quickly in the morning. Head out of Konoha and off to the Training Ground. You also have Sakura in your party, for some reason. ---------------- Training Ground Items: None Enemies: None ---------------- When you arrive at the Training Ground, you'll run into Neji harassing Hinata. He says it's impossible for her to be a ninja, and she just wants to change herself. Neji says a loser is a loser and she's got no chance. And that the situation with the Main and Branch Houses cannot be changed. Hinata insists she won't go back on her word, and that's her ninja way. Neji says it's foolish, that she was born powerless and she can't change destiny. He tells her to quit as a ninja. She keeps refusing. She dislikes the hostility between the Main and Brach Houses as much as Neji. Naruto jumps in and tells Hinata to watch out. Neji's about to get her, but Naruto stops him. Neji humphs and says another loser's shown up. Naruto says not to say that so freely, that he'll definitely win. Tenten shows up, puffing, and says if they don't hurry, they won't be at the final exam in time! Neji leaves with her. Hinata thanks Naruto and asks why he's there. He says it's not important and asks if she knows Neji. She says yes, and thanks him for helping. She explains her dream to be able to change herself. Naruto then heads off to fight Neji, and Kiba comes to pick up Hinata, asking why she's blushing. Leave the Training Ground, and head for the Final Exam Ground, directly south of Konoha. --------------------------------- 5.6.5) Round Three: Fight It Out! --------------------------------- ------------------ Final Exam Ground Items: None Enemies: Neji, Temari, Gaara ------------------ The finalists are lined up, and Naruto wonders where Sasuke is. Dosu also appears to be missing. The referee, Shiranui Genma, tells them to show their faces, to show some gratitude to the people who've come here to watch. The Hokage announces that it's the last round, and congratulates the 8 for getting this far. Genma says he has to explain a little before you start. There's been a slight change in the tournament. The second match in B-block is Temari vs Shikamaru. Shikamaru wonders if Dosu forfeited. Naruto asks about Sasuke, Genma says that if he's not there by his match, he automatically forfeits. Genma then says that it's the final exam. It's not totally like the prelims. The winner doesn't automatically become chuunin, the examiners choose the chuunins by how well they fight. He then announces the first fight in A-block, Uzumaki Naruto vs Hyuuga Neji! He tells everyone but thse two to go up to the stands. Naruto and Neji face up to each other and Naruto reaffiems that he'll definitely win. Genma calls for a beginning, and Naruto activates Kage Bunshin. They rush at Neji, but he beats them easily. He talks about his Byakugan, (What's the Byakugan, Never mind) the Hyuuga bloodline limit, which the Sharingan stemmed from. He claims it to be better than the Sharingan. It can see chakra flow, and tenketsu, the pressure points. By pushing certain ones, he can stop or speed up the flow of chakra around the body. He then begins to deride Naruto's dream of becoming Hokage, and says that there's only one person born to become Hokage, not Naruto. And Naruto should stop avoiding his destiny, and that the only destiny for everyone is death. Naruto starts yelling at Neji for treating Hinata so badly, and asks what the Main and Branch Houses are. Neji explains. The Hyuuga has a Main House and a Branch House. The Main House controls the family, and every Branch House member has a seal placed on them which the Main House members can use to kill them at any time and seal up the Byakugan. Neji's father and Hinata's father were twins, and a few minutes' difference sealed their fates. Neji blames the Main House for his father's death. Naruto says it's all crap, and the fight begins. ----------- Boss: Neji Attacks: Byakugan, Tenketsu EXP: 0 Items: None ----------- Tough one, this. Kick off with Kawarimi as a safety measure, then use Combi Henge. This'll put a lot of damage into Neji, who'll proceed to use Tenketsu, causing chakra loss and sealing you. If you don't have a Full Manual, you've no way to counter this, so shove into the front row and just attack. When you damage him enough again, he'll use Hakke Rokujuuyonshou, causing 999 damage and ending the fight. Naruto is unable to move, and Neji taunts him, saying that the match is over and Naruto is indeed a loser. Naruto then, shaking, stands up and refuses to quit. Neji just laughs and asks if Naruto's still fighting his destiny, and that since all 64 points are hit, Naruto can no longer use chakra. Naruto's still stubborn, but wondering where he can get chakra. Then he remembers his training and Jiraiya saying that he has two types of chakra. He remembers the Kyuubi's chakra, and demands that the Kyuubi give him chakra. He then begins to manifest nine chakra tails! Neji notices the chakra flowing and is amazed. Naruto then says that when he becomes Hokage, he'll change the Hyuuga! He rushes into him, but is beaten back. Neji goes over and says that this is truly the end, but then...another Naruto sppears and whacks him away! The knocked-out one was a Kage Bunshin? Genma looks on and reflects that the power to believe in yourself is the power that can change destiny, and that Naruto knows that well. Naruto says to Neji that his worst technique in the academy always made him fail the exam...it was always Bunshin no Jutsu. He then tells Neji to stop worrying about things like fate and destiny, because unlike Naruto...he's not a loser. Genma then announces the winner...Uzumaki Naruto! Naruto runs off, then comes back. Genma asks if the next match should start or if there should be a break. (Take a break, Don't take a break) If you haven't levelled up Shikamaru, now is the time. Otherwise, go on. Genma announces the next match, Sasuke vs Gaara. But...Sasuke's still not there. They're wondering what to do, and the Sand-nins seem to want Sasuke there. Another jounin comes down and says something to Genma, who then announces that the match will be delayed. Next match, B-block, Kankurou vs Shino! But Kankurou immediately forfeits! Shino wins automatically. Temari jumps down, as her fight is next and she's eager. Her opponent...Shikamaru! Shikamaru's agonizing, as he doesn't want to go to the trouble of having to do it, and considers forfeiting, but Naruto gives him a big encouraging clap on the back, sending him falling into the arena! Temari rushes at Shikamaru, who zips away. She does it again, and he jumps up on the wall, balancing on two kunai. He says that he doesn't really care about becoming a chuunin...but he won't allow a man to lose to a woman. Genma announces the official start, and the battle begins! ------------- Boss: Temari Attacks: Kamaitachi no Jutsu EXP: 0 Items: None ------------- I hope you levelled up Shikamaru, because this is going to be difficult otherwise. Kick off with a Bunshin to protect yourself, then follow up with Kage Mane to paralyze her. Her Kamaitachi packs quite a punch, so heal up when she uses it. She has 800 Stamina, so expect a long fight. All you can really do is keep using Bunshin, healing and attacking, since Shikamaru hasn't got any special flashy attack jutsu. Temari insists she can't lose to this lazy guy, but then...Shikamaru forfeits? He says that he's almost out of chakra and stamina from this, and one troublesome fight is enough for him. Genma announces the winner as Temari. Genma then considers that Shikamaru's strategy and knowledge of how far to go would make him an excellent chuunin, as he has good leadership qualities. Naruto then hops down and starts yelling at Shikamaru for quitting. You're then asked if you want to take a break again. There's nothing really that can be accomplished from it, so don't bother. Next match is the delayed Sasuke vs Gaara...but Sasuke's STILL not there! Then there's a small whirlwind and Kakashi shows up with Sasuke! He apologizes for being late, and Genma asks his name. "Uchiha...Sasuke." You then get a note saying Sasuke has learned the Chidori! Naruto and Sasuke toy with each other a bit, since they'd be fighting each other in the next round, Gaara heads down, and Shikamaru calls Naruto to come back up to the stands. They head off, and Gaara enters. Genma then asks if you want some time before your fight. If you do, you'll have a party of Sasuke, Sakura and Naruto. If Sasuke's underlevelled, level him up here. Also, you might want to pick up some equipment for him. Otherwise, go on with the fight. Genma announces the start of the fight, so go for it! ------------ Boss: Gaara Attacks: Sand Shield EXP: 0 Items: Monkey Scroll ------------ Like the other fights in this round, not a pleasant one. As usual, start off with a Bunshin to protect yourself. Next, use the third Sharingan, Copy, so you can counter any attacks Gaara makes on you. Gaara's attack power's pretty high, so if he hits hard, heal with your various Ration Pills. When you use Sharingan, Chidori will be activated. DO NOT USE IT. It's a waste of 150 chakra and your front-row attack should outdo it anyway. Just keep attacking, healing and reactivating your Sharingan. The match is about to continue as Gaara's getting pumped up, but...feathers start to fall? Temari and Kankurou jump down to Gaara, and Genma hops in front of Sasuke. Naruto, Shikamaru, Neji and Lee also come down. Kankurou and Temari say that they've failed and they have no choice, so they leave. Genma says that unfortunately, the Chuunin Exam ends here. He then tells Sasuke to go after Gaara, taking two people. ===================== 5.7) After the Sand! ===================== You now have control of Sasuke and have to consider a party. Keep in mind that from here on, you'll be splitting into two groups of three, one headed by Sasuke and one by Sakura(you'll get to this later). Therefore, you need to be able to even out both parties. Here's the points: - The level you're going to is painfully difficult and long, so you'll want a Shunshin user to get out if you're having difficulties. The only ones that can use this are Sasuke and Shikamaru. - You'll need a competent healer on each party. Good healers are Sakura, Neji and Shikamaru. - You'll also want a strong attacker. These are Sasuke, Naruto and Lee. Based on this, Sasuke's party should consist of himself, Neji and another attacker, while Sakura's should have herself, Shikamaru and an attacker. This leaves Naruto and Lee. I put Naruto in Sakura's party, as neither her nor Shikamaru are especially strong attackers, but it's up to you. So, my party for Sasuke was Sasuke, Neji and Lee. Once you've decided your party, talk to Genma, form the party, and choose the second option. Genma tells you to head off, and you're taken to the World Map. Go back to Konoha first and sort out your items and equipment, then go to the new spot on the lower left of the map, Gaara Pursuit. ======================== 5.7.1) Sasuke's Pursuit ======================== -------------- Gaara Pursuit Items: Sannin Shuriken, Dragon Shuriken, Special Medicine, Great Seal Ration Pill, Gama Summon Scroll, Dragon Mail, Great Seal Chakra Pill Enemies: Sand Puppet, Sound Puppet, Sand Dragon, Sound Dummy, Shinobi Bat, Sand Dummy, Sound Ninja, Shinobi Crow, Illusion Kunoichi, Ninja Tiger, Mountaineer, Sand Ninja, Sound Dragon, Anbu -------------- This is the last, and most annoying, level in the game. This is not a level you can breeze through, you must level up at the start of it. I suggest wandering around near the entrance, fighting and levelling, then leaving and returning to Konoha to heal up, then lather, rinse, repeat. Don't assume you can walk through here and not get in trouble, because you WILL get in trouble. If you didn't level up the extra three, here's where you must do it, and at least ten levels, if not more. For this, since it's such a painful level, I'll give directions straight-through, plus directions for item-getting. Alright, here we go. Area 1 - Straight Through: Walk left until you hit the western wall, then go south hugging the side until you can go right again. Go right, passing a tree stump below you, and enter the stump beside you. From here, go directly left and out of the other stump. Heal up at the Konoha mark, save and go south. Area 1 - Items: Walk left a little, then go south and into the tree stump. Navigate your way south here, ignoring the exits, and pick up a great sword, but don't equip it unless you're using Naruto. Go back north a bit and out the exit on the right to pick up Special Medicine. Back into the tree and head left. Before you exit, go south a bit and grab the Gama Summon Scroll. Exit left. Around the right corner is a basket with a Dragon Shuriken. Go south out of this little area, then head left and around south to get a Sannin Shuriken. Now go back to where you came out of the little area and head east. Go into this stump, directly left, and exit. Heal up at the Konoha mark, save and go south. Sasuke's sure that they came through this way, but they seem to have lost their trail. And who shows up but...Orochimaru. The group (stupidly) confronts him, and he asks Sasuke if the curse seal hurts. They banter for a bit, then fight time! ----------------- Boss: Orochimaru Attacks: Killing Intent EXP: 3333 Items: Bird Scroll ----------------- Everyone who can Bunshin should Bunshin. If you have Naruto, use Kawarimi, and if you have Lee, use Beautiful Green Beast. His attacks are hard-hitting, so have your healer on standby. Sasuke should use his Copy Sharingan, Neji use Byakugan, Lee use Omote/Ura Renge, Naruto use Tajuu Kage Bunshin and Shikamaru use Kage Mane. If you have the jutsu required, you might want to consider combination attacks. Just keep attacking and he'll be gone eventually. Sasuke laughs a bit, but then the opponent disappears! That super-powerful enemy was just a Kage Bunshin! You'll decide to continue your mission, but first, go back up and heal at the Konoha mark. You'll need it. Now, head back down. Alrighty. We're in Area 2 now. There's only two items, so I won't do it separately like before. Note: In this area, for the first time, you'll encounter the Anbu. This enemy has 1500 Stamina and can kill in one hit, but gives amazing EXP, so if you're up for levelling up, stick near the top and fight one, blowing all of your jutsu, then go back to the Konoha mark and heal up. Keep to the left side all the way down. When you go right, there's paths up and down. These lead to Dragon Mail and a Great Seal Chakra Pill. Take them if you want and proceed. Sasuke wonders what's going on, since he can hear footsteps close. The group decide to hide. ======================== 5.7.2) Sakura's Pursuit ======================== Back to the arena, Kakashi appears and asks what happened to Sasuke. Genma says he was sent after Gaara. Gai shows up and says the Sand are working with the Sound! Kakashi ties it together with Orochimaru, who was after...yep, Sasuke! Kakashi quickly puts two and two together and sends Sakura to go after Sasuke and bring him back, an A-rank mission! She takes the two remaining team members and you're on the World Map. Head to Konoha, heal, restock, head for the Gaara Pursuit. -------------- Gaara Pursuit Items: Great Seal Chakra Pill, Sannin Senbon, Kyuubi Summon Scroll, Heaven Coat, Great Seal All-Purpose Pill x2, Special Medicine, Gama Summon Scroll, Runner Gaiters, Sannin Kunai, Kage Buyou Gaiters, Sannin Claws Enemies: Sand Puppet, Sound Puppet, Sand Dragon, Sound Dummy, Shinobi Bat, Sand Dummy, Sound Ninja, Shinobi Crow, Illusion Kunoichi, Ninja Tiger, Mountaineer, Sand Ninja, Sound Dragon, Anbu -------------- Right. You're taking a longer, MUCH more complicated path than Sasuke, so here we go. Same as last time, itemless and item walkthrough. It's not split into areas, because they sort of come together. And don't forget to level up. Area 3 - Straight Through: From the start, walk into the tree. Go around the branches to the right until you can go south and back around left. Go through the exit. Out here, go south and grab the Kyuubi Summon Scroll (you need this), then go back north to the tree, directly west, directly south, then into the tree you see there. Now go right and as far south as you can until you see an exit. Outside, go directly west and into the tree. Heal up at the Konoha mark and head south. [cutscene and boss fight, see below]* After the cutscene, go down the right side until you can't go south any further. Use the exit here. Area 3 - Items: This will be a long, but worth it, trip. From the start, walk into the tree. Go to the far east and exit there. Get the Sannin Senbon there, then head back in. Go back to the west, around the south side, and out the exit here. Go couth and grab the Kyuubi Summon Scroll, then back north. From here, go west and get the Great Seal Chakra Pill by the tree. Then go in. Inside, go south and exit. Grab the Great Seal All-Purpose Pill here. Go back out through the other tree and go for the tree you see a little to the southeast. Inside here, you're heading east, south a little, then east again and out the exit. Go into the tree next to it, and travel south to another exit. Here, cross the river and get a Heaven Coat. Go back to where you headed east in the tree, and go south instead, and out of the exit. Now, go south to get Special Medicine, then into the tree directly north of you. Heal up at the Konoha mark and head south. [cutscene and boss fight, see below]* After the cutscene, head down the left side and grab a Gama Summon Scroll.Now go down the right side and into the first exit you see. Here, get a Great Seal All-Purpose Pill and Kage Buyou Gaiters. Back inside the tree, head south until you see another exit. Don't go in, instead head left and up a bit, then out the exit here. Grab a Sannin Kunai and Sannin Claws. Go back into the tree, then go through the exit you passed earlier. *phew* *Cutscene: Here, you'll run into the three Sasuke's team is pursuing, and Kankurou will stay behind to buy the other two some time, so boss fight! --------------- Boss: Kankurou Attacks: Puppet Jutsu, Head Disposal EXP: 3333 Items: Dog Scroll --------------- Like Orochimaru, he has 2400 Stamina, so a pretty tough cookie. Have the group Bunshin/Kawarimi up, then Sakura use her protective jutsu. Sakura should attack with Inner Sakura, Naruto should Tajuu Kage Bunshin and attack, Lee should use Omote/Ura Renge, Neji use Byakugan attacks, and Shikamaru use Kage Mane, then heal. Keep working like this, and you should beat him. ===================== 5.7.3) Final Stretch ===================== Your teams will meet up now, but there's enemies chasing you to fight you! Lee, Neji and Shikamaru stay behind to fight them, while Naruto, Sasuke and Sakura go ahead after the Sand trio. When you regain control, go south and heal up at the Konoha mark. Go to the far left and grab the Lost Scroll 5, then save and go south for the final battle. The gang spot the Sand trio, and stop them. Gaara, in his philosophy, wants to kill them to feel alive. Gaara talks about hatred and fear, then Sasuke remembers his brother, who he swears he must kill. He then gets determined, and you battle! ------------------------------ Boss: Kankurou, Temari, Gaara Attacks: Puppet Jutsu, Head Disposal, Great Squall, Sand Shield EXP: 999, 999, 999 Items: None ------------------------------ Blow your big jutsu on this battle, it won't matter. Bunshin/Kawarimi up, then Kyuubi Henge, Ryuuka and Inner Sakura L3 are the order of the day. Keep Sakura healing and the other two attacking, and it should be done in no time. Sasuke snickers that they've already won, but Gaara starts laughing, then calls them weak. He says that the power to hate is the power to kill, and the power to kill is the power to take revenge. He says that Sasuke's hatred is less than his own. The two clash, and leave Sasuke shaking. Gaara starts twitching as well, and knocks Kankurou and Temari away. Sasuke's curse seal starts activating, and Gaara rushes at him, but Sakura takes the hit instead. Naruto takes them back behind him, then confronts Gaara. Gaara is confused by the idea of companions, and he mutates. Naruto compares it to his own Kyuubi, and realizes Gaara also has a demon inside him. Naruto rushes at Gaara twice and gets knocked back. He tries to summon Gamabunta, but doesn't have the Kyuubi chakra he needs. Gaara rages more and advances, and Naruto uses Kage Bunshin. His clones attack, but are defeated. Sasuke then gets up and says he won't give up either. Sakura gets up and joins in. The three face up to Gaara and Naruto starts to display Kyuubi chakra. Sasuke heals your Stamina and Chakra, and the battle begins! ------------ Boss: Gaara Attacks: Sand Shuriken EXP: 3333 Items: None ------------ Have everyone just use their Bunshin/Kawarimi, then front-row attack for this battle. Trust me. Naruto should use Tajuu Kage Bunshin, and Sakura should heal. Gaara will now twitch even more. He swears he won't lose to people like you, and morphs into the huge Shukaku! Naruto identifies it as the demon inside him, then Gaara uses a jutsu to put the Tanuki to sleep, and takes control. Final battle! -------------------------- Boss: Shukaku of the Sand Attacks: Fuuton, Infinite Sand-Cloud Rush EXP: 29997 Items: Pig Scroll -------------------------- 666 Stamina. Urgh. Remember that Kyuubi Summon Scroll I told you to pick up? Use it now on Naruto. This scroll gives him infinite chakra and super-speed, just like in the fight with Haku all that time ago. Now, Naruto should use Kyuubi Henge over and over, while Sasuke uses Copy Sharingan and attacks, and Sakura heals. When Kyuubi Chakra wears off or Shukaku disables it, have Naruto use Tajuu Kage Bunshin and front-row attack. It's a long battle, but not a difficult one. ============ 5.8) Ending ============ Gaara's jutsu starts to fail now, as the Tanuki begins to awaken. Gaara asks them to defeat him, and Naruto begins to Kyuubify, then defeats the Tanuki! Naruto and Gaara are left facing each other, both knocking each other out. Gaara wonders why Naruto's so strong, Naruto edges closer. Naruto says that he doesn't have to suffer alone, that he's found important people who acknowledge him. Sasuke and Sakura then appear, and Naruto collapses. Kankurou and Temari also appear, but Gaara tells them not to fight, that it's alright now. The two then take Gaara away. Gaara reflects that, like Naruto, he'd like to meet important people too someday. He then apologizes to Temari and Kankurou. The three leave. Back at the cliff, Naruto awakens. He wonders what happened to him and Sakura gets mad at him for making them worry. He wonders if Sakura was really worried about him, and she insists it was only because they're in the three-man team together. Sasuke then says that he acknowledges Naruto. The three then decide to return to the village. You have control. Return to Konoha. The three walk back in and are greeted by Iruka, who shows immediate concern for Naruto. Naruto just says that since the mission's over, the two have to go eat ramen! Iruka yells at him and says that Konoha's currently in trouble. Orochimaru, one of the Legendary Sannin, took the Sand and Sound, and attacked Konoha. Naruto asks what happened with the village, and Iruka tells him that the Third Hokage has...been killed in a battle with Orochimaru. He gave his life to protect the village. Naruto asks why, why, then yells out in anguish. We now see Kakashi at the monument with another jounin. He says the Third's funeral has already started, and she asks if he came to see Obito. She says that he's always late now, because he comes to visit the monument. He acknowledges that. He says he comes to constantly remind himself of what a fool he was in the past. Then we see Jiraiya at the posts, reflecting on his time with the Third as his instructor. Now we go to Konoha, where all of the genin, plus Iruka and Konohamaru, are looking over at the Hokage mountain. Naruto asks Iruka why people give their lives of their own free will. Iruka says that humans don't die alone, and that everyone looks towards the future. Many people give their lives in the line of duty, people who die's dreams are fulfilled. But everyone has important things, parents, siblings, friends, lovers, fellow villagers...they are the important people to you. They trust each other and help each other out, that is their connection. Naruto says he understands, but death is heart-breaking. Kakashi says that the Third didn't just die. He saved everything that was important to them. Naruto understands. One day, several days later... Naruto wants to have ramen with Iruka. Iruka says when his mission's finished. Naruto whines and says he said that before. Iruka says that instead, he'll tell him something good. He heard it from the Third Hokage before. All of the villagers of Konoha have the will of fire. It's the strong will that protects Konoha. With that will of fire, all of the villagers in Konoha are a family. He asks Naruto if he has it too. Naruto asks about the Third saving the important people, but then Kakashi calls him for a mission! Iruka says to go on, and Naruto says goodbye and leaves. He meets the team and says they'll do their best today too! And he won't lose to Sasuke! They then leave for their mission. Iruka reflects that the little leaves of Konoha are the ones who inherit the will of fire, just like the Third said. And the Third will watch over Konoha, protecting it until a new Hokage comes. Credits, and end. --- From now, you can load up the savegame and do various sidequests or just level up. Talk to Iruka in the mission room to change party members. ========= 6) Items ========= -Coming Soon- ========= 7) Jutsu ========= ------------------ 8.1) Common Jutsu ------------------ 火遁・壱の巻/Katon Ichi no Maki/Fire Release, One Scroll Chakra Cost: 2 Description: Deals Fire damage to one enemy.

I try to respond to every email, so if you don't get an answer, you can be sure that one is coming. Also, if you're emailing me, make sure whatever you're asking for isn't in the guide already and don't go poking me for strategies for later parts of the game than are covered in the walkthrough, because I'm not there yet.
