The battle between Naruto and Sasuke finally reaches its end in this episode.
Naruto finally gets the upper hand. However, this wasn't to last, since Sasuke develops a matured Sharingan in the middle of this battle.
After activating his Cursed Seal, Sasuke manages to gain the upper hand in this battle. Naruto ends up on the receiving end of a beatdown — but not for long.
One of the best parts of Naruto is without a doubt the first fight between Naruto and Sasuke.
In a final bid to defeat Gaara once and for all, Lee opens the Fifth Gate.
Any Naruto fan who doubted Lee's taijutsu's capabilities would be singing a different tune by the end of this episode.
Of course, it would be impossible to talk about Gaara without mentioning his excellent fight against Rock Lee.
For the longest time, it seemed that Naruto would be incapable of being useful in battle; after all, he had a penchant to do some truly stupid things in his fights.
The Rasengan is one of Naruto's most iconic moves, and in this episode, he pulls off this attack for the first time.
