Despite Sakura’s objections, Naruto and Sasuke head to the hospital roof to fight. Before the fight begins, Naruto asks Sasuke to wear the Head Protector of Konoha. Sasuke refuses, as it would mean that they are equals. He upsets Naruto by not recognizing himself as a Konoha ninja.
Naruto surrounds Sasuke with shadow clones, which Sasuke destroys with his Fireball. Once the smoke clears, Sasuke sees that one clone has survived and helps Naruto form the Rasengan. He uses his Chidori and they attack each other. Sakura yells for them to stop.
