After risking their lives in the first mission against Zabuza, Team 7 now has to show their eligibility to become a chunin in the Chūnin Exams. Unfortunately, the Chūnin Exams did not go smoothly, and even had to be stopped halfway through.
In a way, the Chunin Exams are the best arc in the first series of Naruto . Apart from featuring many new and diverse characters, this arc also features many unexpected events and a number of epic tense battles.
Of the many things going on, here are five of the worst things that happen to arc Chunin Exam. Check out the following reviews.
1. Sasuke gets the curse seal
As a scientist who is very obsessed with immortality, Orochimaru has wanted Sasuke's body, ever since the series began. Orochimaru wanted to use Sasuke's body as an experimental material to gain immortality.
Therefore, Orochimaru sneaked into Konoha disguised as a participant in the Chūnin Exams. While the exams were in progress, Orochimaru attacked Team 7. His goal was not to kill Team 7, but to give Sasuke a Curse Seal and promised him great strength if Sasuke was willing to follow him.
Sure enough, the seal gave Sasuke a lot of strength. However, Sasuke became very uncontrollable when he used the power of the Curse Seal. Worse yet, this seal is one of the reasons why Sasuke in the end decided to defect and follow Orochimaru.
2. Confrontation between Neji and Hinata
Both Neji and Hinata, both of them came from the same clan, the Hyuga clan. Even so, the two of them had a bad relationship. Due to the death of his father, Neji who came from a branch family had great hatred towards the main family, including Hinata.
Coincidentally, Neji and Hinata met in a one-on-one fight in this exam. To prove himself better than the main family while letting out his anger, Neji did everything he could to destroy Hinata. Luckily, the fight was stopped before Neji could actually kill Hinata.
3. Rock Lee was almost killed by Gaara
The battle between Neji and Hinata wasn't the only battle that had to end halfway through this arc . The same thing happened to the fight between Rock Lee and Gaara.
Both Gaara and Lee are both very tough fighters. Gaara has an almost indestructible defense, while Lee has tremendous attack power and speed. In order to destroy Gaara's defense, Lee even had to open the Five Inner Gates, a move that was very dangerous for his age. Unfortunately, Lee's efforts failed and Gaara still came out victorious.
Despite winning the battle and making Lee helpless, Lee's persistence made Gaara even more willing to kill him. As a result, Gaara sneaks into the hospital to kill Lee. Luckily, Gaara's attempt was thwarted by Naruto and his friends.
4. Orochimaru disguised himself as the Kazekage to attack Konoha
Not only did he stop by giving Sasuke the Curse Seal, Orochimaru also threatened the village's security by attacking Konoha. At first, it was suspected that Orochimaru was teaming up with the Kazekage in Sunagakure to attack the village.
However, without being noticed, Orochimaru apparently killed the Kazekage and pretended to be the Kazekage to use Sunagakure's power and attack Konoha. Even though Konoha was filled with many strong ninjas and had a high level of security, this attack still caused great chaos.
5. Death of the third Hokage
Hiruzen should be enjoying his retirement during the Chūnin Exams. However, because Minato Namikaze, the fourth Hokage , had to be killed in his fight against Kurama, Hiruzen had to return to lead the village. At that time, Konoha had not found a suitable person to replace Minato.
When Orochimaru began sabotaging the exams, Hiruzen had to come face to face with his former student, Orochimaru. Even though Hiruzen was one of the three ninja who was dubbed the God of Shinobi, he was not at his prime when he fought Orochimaru.
This made Hiruzen unable to use his full strength and ended up sacrificing his life only to seal Orochimaru's hand. Even so, at least Hiruzen managed to thwart Orochimaru's plans.
A rc is worthy of being called the best arc in the first Naruto series . Apart from featuring young ninjas who show their talents, this arc also has a series of unexpected events. The reason is, who would have thought there would be bloodshed in this exam?
As the best ninja series, the Naruto series is always filled with epic tense battles. Almost every character in this series has been involved in combat. While this series already has many epic battles, such as when Naruto fought Sasuk, or when all the shinobi fought Madara, there are still plenty of battles that have never happened and that fans would want to see.
Well, this time the author has summarized five fights that fans want to see in the Naruto series . Check out the following reviews.
Naruto vs Hashirama
Naruto and Hashirama are the two strongest Hokage in Konoha. While Naruto served as the seventh Hokage, Hashirama served as the first Hokage and the person who founded Konoha.
Even though the two of them were separated from generation to generation, it would be interesting if the two strongest Hokage fought. The battle between Naruto and Hashirama will determine who is the strongest Hokage in Konoha.
Minato vs Fugaku
While the final battle between Naruto and Sasuke is the best fight in the series, what happens if the father of the two eternal rivals fights? Both Minato and Fugaku were both very strong and influential ninja.
While Minato is the fourth Hokage in Konohagakure, Fugaku is the leader of the Uchiha clan as well as the leader of the Konoha Military Police Force. Apart from being known as the leader of the Uchiha clan, Fugaku is also known as Minato's strongest rival for the position of fourth Hokage.
Itachi vs Obito
Apart from both coming from the Uchiha clan, Itachi and Obito were both members of Akatsuki, the most dangerous terrorist organization in the world of Naruto . As members of the Uchiha clan, of course both of them were very strong ninjas.
Itachi is known as a very strong ninja even from a very young age. Meanwhile, Obito is the one who ignited the Fourth Shinobi War. If only Itachi hadn't died in his fight against Sasuke, fans might have seen an epic battle between Itachi and Obito in the Fourth Shinobi War.
Sasuke vs Neji
Both Sasuke and Neji both come from clans that have Kekkei Genkai which are included in the Three Great Dojutsu. Sasuke comes from the Uchiha clan which is known to have the Sharingan. Meanwhile, Neji comes from the Hyūga clan which is known to have the Byakugan.
It will be very interesting to see the best Sharingan users and the best Byakugan users fight each other. The two are also known to have similar personalities: Sasuke and Neji are quiet and talkative.
Might Guy vs Kakashi
After seeing Kakashi's greatness, Guy always considered Kakashi his rival. Although at first Kakashi did not pay much attention to Guy, after seeing Guy's skill in using Taijutsu, Kakashi began to recognize Guy as a worthy rival.
Although the rivalry between Guy and Kakashi is legendary, the two are never seen fighting each other. This made fans wonder about what would happen if the son of Konoha's White Fangs fought the best Taijutsu user in Konoha?
When two strong characters appear, fans will always look forward to the epic battle of the two characters. Unfortunately, not all of the fights fans have been waiting for have happened. In your opinion, the battle between whom would you like to see the most?
