"You Failed! Kakashi's Final Decision" (失格?カカシの結論, Shikkaku? Kakashi no Ketsuron) is episode 5 of the original Naruto anime.


Kakashi evaded Sasuke's previous attack. He then deals with Sakura by luring her into a genjutsu. Sasuke uses a fire technique, Kakashi, however, evaded the attack by using his Earth Release: Double Suicide Decapitation Technique. Naruto tries to steal some lunch, but is caught. Sakura is no longer under the effect of the genjutsu, however finds Sasuke incapacitated. As time runs out, Kakashi says that the three will be completely dropped from the bell test, but cannot become ninja due to their incomprehension of the test's goal: team-work. He then instructs Sakura and Sasuke that if they are caught feeding Naruto food, they will fail the test. Sasuke turns around and offers Naruto some of his lunch after hearing his stomach growl of hunger. Sasuke states that he does not sense Kakashi nearby and that Naruto would be a liability to them later since his weakness would impair their teamwork. Sakura sees this and offers Naruto her food as well, though she is none too happy about having to feed him since Naruto's hands were tied to the post. As soon as Naruto is fed, Kakashi dramatically appears before them. As Kakashi apparently prepares to punish them all, Sakura explains that they gave Naruto food because he's a member of their team. Kakashi then announces that they have all passed his test. He informs the team that they are the first team to ever pass his test and that they are now officially his students. He explains one of a ninja's most important rules: those who break the rules are scum, but those who abandon their friends are worse than scum.


  • When Kakashi's uses the Demonic Illusion: Hell Viewing Technique on Sakura to make her see an injured Sasuke, it isn't as heavily graphic as the manga, as he was not missing an arm and his leg was not twisted.
