"Fight! Rock Lee!" (闘えロックリー!, Tatakae Rokku Rī!) is episode 228 of the Naruto: Shippūden anime.


Lee dreams of fighting Tobi using his Drunken Fist; as he wakes up, he berates himself for having slept during training for the upcoming war. Lee then spots a small boat and wonders whether he can finally put to use what Guy tried to teach him so long ago. Elsewhere, Guy is nauseous from his seasickness and decides to tell Naruto a story about him, Lee, and seasickness.

After Lee had managed to perfect the Reverse Lotus, Guy took Lee out to dinner, where Lee accidentally ingested alcohol and used his Drunken Fist to destroy the restaurant. The next morning, all Guy could remember is begging on his knees to the restaurant owner. Not wanting Lee to remember such a disgraceful act, he took Lee out to perfect "image training" in an attempt to make Lee forget forever. After Lee began remembering the Drunken Fist, Guy attempted to cover it up by claiming it was Seasickness Fist. However, both Guy and Lee fully remembered their memories from the night before, and Lee told Guy that he was honoured by his sensei's words and actions the previous night. Since Lee was a natural at the Drunken Fist, Guy advised him to use the seasickness as a substitute for intoxication to master the technique, which Lee was able to do.

As Guy finishes his story, Naruto tells him that the training was useless — Lee is unable to fight if seasick, but if he overcomes his nausea, then he would not be able to use his Seasickness Fist. Guy is outraged and cries that he was unable to realise that earlier.
