"The Real Choice!!" (本当の選択!!, Hontō no Sentaku!!, Viz: The True Choice!!) is chapter 382 of the original Naruto manga.


Although he figures out who Pain is, Jiraiya can neither speak nor move. His life begins to fade and he reflects on the many failures of his life; his inability to protect the Third Hokage or Fourth Hokage; his inability to save Orochimaru; his inability to win the heart of Tsunade; and, most sadly for him, his inability to die with honour. He then remembers how Naruto was named after the protagonist of his first book, making him Naruto's godfather. Since Naruto's nindō is to never give up, Jiraiya, as Naruto's teacher, decides that that should be his nindō too. He finds the energy to relay a message to Fukasaku, confident that Naruto will save the world.
