Sasuke wakes up, having previously been in a death-like state that Haku placed him in. Sakura gives Naruto the good news, who is glad that Haku was able to stay true to his wish not to kill anyone. With Gato dead, his bandits decide to loot the Land of the Waves to replace the money they won’t get now. It was then that Inari, along with the locals, finally arrived to defend his country. After Naruto and Kakashi create several shadow clones of their own, the bandits are intimidated and flee. As Zabuza’s life leaves him, he asks Kakashi to bring him to Haku’s body, which he does. As Zabuza dies, he regrets not being able to join his most loyal follower on the other side. The two are later buried next to each other on a hill overlooking the country, and when Tazuna completes the bridge two weeks later, Team 7 heads home to Konoha.
