Zabuza is immobilized, and Kakashi prepares his Raikiri to put an end to his plans. At this time, Haku asks Naruto to kill him. Believing that death is the only way to make Haku happy, Naruto decides to do so, while Kakashi rushes toward Zabuza. Sensing a threat to his master’s life, Haku parries Naruto’s attack and disappears. Using himself as a human shield, Haku takes on the full force of Raikiri, while freeing Zabuza from the ninjen. With the last of his powers, Haku grabs Kakashi to prevent him from escaping.
