Naruto uses shadow clones to distract Sasuke while one clone amasses nature energy to fight back against Sasuke's Perfect Susanoo. Once ready, the clones merge into a single avatar and create two huge Rasenshuriken. Sasuke is delighted that Naruto is... (more) finally getting serious but Naruto shouts he wants to win against Sasuke fairly. Naruto's attack and Sasuke's Indra's Arrow collide, creating a titanic explosion and hurricane-like vortex that devastates the Final Valley and its surrounding forest, including decapitating the statues. Drained of chakra, they resort to taijutsu. Sakura wakes up from Sasuke's genjustu and learns of their battle. The battle between the two boys continues on until they are both so exhausted and injured that they can barely stand. Despite being exhausted, Sasuke uses his Rinnegan's power to absorb the chakra Kurama amassed for Naruto and prepares to kill him, but Naruto counter-punches him due to Sasuke running out of enough energy to keep his Sharingan active. Sasuke prepares a Blaze Release Chidori to end the battle and Kurama hands over the last of his chakra by fist-bumping with Naruto, and remembers when Naruto vowed to eliminate Sasuke's and the tailed beast's hatred. Naruto creates a Rasengan while imagining all his friends helping him. Their attacks collide and the resulting explosion destroys the remaining statues and engulfs Naruto and Sasuke.
