Naruto: Mission: Protect The Waterfall Village! (NARUTO-ナルト- 滝隠れの死闘 オレが英雄だってばよ!, Naruto: Takigakure no Shitō Ore ga Hīrō dattebayo!) is a fourteen chapter light novel adaptation written by Masatoshi Kusakabe. It is also an OVA anime adaptation of Mission: Protect the Waterfall Village!.


Naruto and the gang return home after a stint protecting Shibuki, the leader of Takigakure. But there's danger back in Konoha. Sasuke and Sakura are quickly captured and the tow-headed ninja-wannabe finds himself in a desperate situation. Turning to Shibuki for help, Naruto discovers the revered leader is actually a coward and false hero. Alone, Naruto must protect his home, his friends and the Takigakure's Hero Water.


  • The whole light novel book has an entirely different story, compared to the anime OVA adaption. Examples are:
    • Team Suien (including Suien himself) was revealed to have a large variety of different moves rather than the single one they used in the anime OVA adaption.
    • Senji, an extra character who supports, helps and protects Shibuki and his villagers.
    • Four summoning animals were being used in the light novel adaptation, three giant fishes and Pakkun.
    • Senji fighting against Suien instead of Shibuki.
    • Suien's three Amegakure partners are revealed to be alive (and captured by Kakashi) at the end of the light novel adaptation.
    • Team Suien having faced off against Kakashi until they had been interrupted by Konenmaru.
    • Kakashi's flak jacket was beige in colour.
    • Himatsu and Shizuku's mother was attacked later rather than earlier in the story.
    • Murasame's black sleeveless shirt was ripped in the light novel adaption, but did not happen in the anime's OVA adaption.
    • Shibuki fights against Suien at the near end of the light novel adaption using summoning animals to fight his own.
