Two of Gatō's henchmen attack Tazuna's home, planning to kidnap Tsunami in order to force Tazuna to stop building the bridge. They prepare to kill Inari, but Tsunami promises to kill herself if they harm him. Touched by the bravery of his mother, his grandfather, and Team 7, Inari stands up for himself and tries to stop the kidnappers. Before they can cut them down, Naruto appears to save Inari and defeat them both. He congratulates Inari for the courage it took to risk his life to save his mother's, then leaves to join the rest of his team.
