Sasuke is still unconscious and in his sleep sees his younger self lamenting that he should have been stronger when the massacre of his clan occurred. Meanwhile, Chouji is reluctant to fight Team Dosu, but immediately changes his mind when he is called fat. Ino tells Sakura to keep an eye on Naruto and Sasuke. Chouji charges at Zaka, who fails to deal him any damage. Dosu tries to intervene, but finds himself immobilized by Shikamaru. Ino takes possession of Kin’s body and threatens to kill her if her teammates don’t give them their scroll and retreat. Dosu attacks Ino in Kin’s body, injuring her. He announces that they didn’t come here to take the exam at all. Shikamaru’s technique dissipates just in time for Neji and Tenten to arrive on the scene. Neji threatens that Dosu will pay for beating up their comrade, but then realizes that he won’t have to act anymore. Sasuke awakens, with a cursed seal covering his body, and asks Sakura who hurt her. Zaku declares that he did it.
