Sasuke begins to attack Naruto, but Sai restrains him only for them both to be blown away by a Chidori emanating from his whole body. Sakura charges Sasuke saying that she will stop him herself, but Yamato intervenes and winds up being stabbed by Sasuke's unique blade infused with his Chidori. The Nine-Tailed Fox uses this opportunity to tempt Naruto with its power, but he refuses. Sasuke sees this encounter using his Sharingan and appears in Naruto's mind. The Nine-Tails says that Sasuke's chakra reminds him of Madara Uchiha, then Sasuke suppresses the Nine-Tailed Fox's chakra. Before the Nine-Tailed Fox returns to its cage, it warns Sasuke not to kill Naruto, saying that he will live to regret it forever.
