While Kakuzu was busy with the shadow clones, Naruto tried to hit him with his new Rensuriken. He dissipated before making contact with Kakuzu, forcing Kakashi and Yamato to save Naruto from his opponent’s counterattack. Frustrated by Naruto’s failure, they offer to help him fight Kakuzu. Naruto asks for another chance, stating that he can never match Sasuke if he always needs help from others.
