Zabuza is forced to dispel the Water Prison Technique to avoid being wounded by Naruto’s kunai. Enraged by Naruto’s actions, Zabuza tries to attack him, but his attack is blocked by Kakashi, who is free of the technique. Kakashi congratulates the team on the successful plan and assures them that he never falls for the same technique twice. Zabuza attacks Kakashi with the Water Element: Water Dragon Shell technique, and Kakashi instantly copies it with his Sharingan. As soon as the two identical techniques collide, Zabuza prepares to make another attack, only to confirm his speculation that Kakashi sees all the action beforehand. Kakashi attacks Zabuza with his own Water Element: The Great Waterfall Technique when he was still thinking about using it. After conducting the attack, Kakashi prepares to finish off Zabuza, but is overtaken by the masked boy and seems to kill Zabuza.
