Losing is Not an Option! (負けられない理由, Makerarenai Riyū) is episode 117 of the original Naruto anime.


After advancing his cursed seal to its second state and creating a bow and arrow with his webs, Kidōmaru began shooting arrows at Neji's blind spot. Neji was able to block or evade the attacks enough to keep them from hitting vital areas, although was still left heavily damaged from each of Kidōmaru's attacks. Ready to finish the battle, Kidōmaru prepared his most deadly arrow for use, and fired it at Neji. Neji took the arrow at full force, although, already knowing of his blind spot, moved at the last second to keep the arrow from piercing his heart. With Kidōmaru's arrow connected to him by a web, Neji sent his chakra into the web, paralyzing Kidōmaru. As Kidōmaru laid helpless, Neji approached him and dealt a finishing blow. His injuries were too severe and Neji collapsed, leaving the retrieval of Sasuke up to the others.
