When Naruto and his thousand shadow clones attack the vulnerable Gaara, all spectators of this battle are greatly surprised. Gaara completely transforms into Shukaku to defend himself against this attack and tries to crush Naruto with his sand. Still refusing to lose, Naruto uses Nine-tail’s chakra to summon Gamabuntu to escape the sand. Seeing Shukaku, Gamabunta shows no interest in the battle, especially since Naruto has yet to earn his trust. Gamakichi, Gamabunta’s son, assures his father that Naruto is a good man because he protected him from Gaara. Angered that someone might attack a member of his family, Gamabunta agrees to help.
