Two cloaked men look out over a devastated Konoha. Two days after the failed Attack on Konoha, the Third Hokage’s funeral is held. Iruka comforts the Third’s grandson, Konohamaru, and reflects on his experience with the Third; when Iruka was upset by the death of his parents, the Third assured him that they and all others who die in service to the village live as long as Konoha exists. Kakashi and Yugao visit the Memorial Stone in memory of the others who died before the ceremony began. Jiraiya watches them and thinks about his time under the tutelage of the Third, shedding tears over how twisted he and his mentor are. Naruto asks Iruka why people die protecting others, to which Iruka replies that it is human nature. Agreeing, Naruto leaves with the rest of Team 7, and Iruka notes that the Third will inevitably be replaced by someone else who is just as great a Hokage.
