Fearing that the enemy ninja might kill them, Sasuke offers to give him the scroll in exchange for their lives. Naruto attacks Sasuke and takes the scroll from him, believing him to be an impostor since the real Sasuke would never give up so easily. Even if he is the real Sasuke, Naruto notes – there is no guarantee that the ninja would spare them even if he got the scroll. The ninja agrees with Naruto’s words, summoning a large snake to attack him. While Naruto fights, Sasuke still urges him to surrender. Naruto, using the power of the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox, soon defeats the snake when it turns its attention to Sasuke and rushes toward him. Naruto mockingly asks Sasuke if he is hurt.
