After Naruto Uzumaki loses Kurama to Madara, Sakura Haruno attempts to save him while Gaara transports them to Minato in order to have Yin-Kurama sealed into Naruto to save him. As Sakura learned her medical ninjutsu is unable to reverse the effects of Kurama's extraction, she resorts to slicing open Naruto's chest and manually pumping his heart. Meanwhile, a distraught Karin is being kept from healing Sasuke Uchiha by Tobi using a miniature version of Hashirama's Wood Style: Several Thousand Hands. Though Karin attempts to counter with her Adamantine Attacking Chains, Tobi impales her with a wooden staff that shoots out several branches. But Karin bites her arm and heals herself as Suigetsu then comes to her aid with his Water Gun: Two Guns. Though Tobi manages to dodge Jugo's attempt to grab him, he is immobilized by Orochimaru placing his curse-mark on the White Zetsu. Karin then resumes running Sasuke as she senses an ominous chakra at his location after Madara left him to die. Meanwhile, Madara absorbs the restored Ten-Tails to become its jinchuriki before making his way towards Obito to reclaim his remaining eye. Along the way, Madara pauses for a moment to spit out the Benihisago and Kohaku no Jōhei from his mouth, which lands on Lee and Guy as they are retreating with Tenten. As Minato and Kakashi Hatake prepare to force Black Zetsu off Obito, Yin-Kurama alerts Minato to Gaara and Sakura's arrival. After learning the situation, Minato decides to transfer Yin-Kurama into Naruto while Gaara helps Kakashi in holding off Black Zetsu. But the transference is intercepted by Black Zetsu as he absorbs the Nine-Tails chakra.

Now that Madara is nearby, Black Zetsu declares that nobody can stop it from handing over the Rinnegan and Yin-Kurama, detaching itself from Obito's body. As Kakashi and Gaara prepare to attack in order to give Naruto the meanings to survive the extraction, Black Zetsu finds itself unable to leave Obito's body, due to him not allowing it to. Obito questions Madara about who he himself is to the older Uchiha. Madara explains to how Obito as a follower of Madara's ideals is Madara, he who wishes to cancel the world created by the Sage of the Six Paths and to create a new one through the Eye of the Moon Plan. Seemingly giving in to Madara's words, Obito starts walking towards him with Minato trying to attack Madara as Kakashi and Gaara try to stop Obito, only to effortlessly be stopped. However, Obito doesn't take Madara's hand and pierces him in the gut. Recalling Naruto's words, Obito claims that his current self is the same as the one who wanted to become Hokage. He then extract fragments of Shukaku's and Gyuki's chakra and tells Kakashi to teleport Naruto and Sakura to the other dimension.

Obito overhears a couple shinobi complaining about completing missions with Kakashi and asks them about it. They tell him Kakashi is ignoring his teammates to complete missions no matter what, which conflicts with what Obito remembers Kakashi saying. They advise him to beware of being assigned missions with Kakashi. Leaving the Academy, Obito asks Rin about Kakashi, and shares his concerns with her. Obito comes across Kakashi and tries to strike up a conversation with him, only for Kakashi to dryly tell him not to worry about him and leave. Obito trains in the rain to catch up to Kakashi, but Rin distracts him for a moment and falls down, and she encourages to keep training. Hiruzen asks Minato to teach Kakashi some humanity. Rin berates Obito for being late to his own graduation ceremony and takes him inside to re-enact the graduation. She gives him his certificate and tells him they were assigned to the same team. Team Minato gathers for the first time, and Minato applies the bell test. The team passes and Minato informs them they'll start with simple, odd-job missions. Obito finds lost objects and pets by asking around the elderly people he often aids and Minato appreciates Obito's kindness towards others. Team Minato completes all available D-rank missions, so they're assigned a C-rank mission, escorting a group of foreign shinobi carrying a message. During the mission, Minato notices they're being surrounded by enemies, and orders Rin and Kakashi to go on ahead, while he and Obito fall back to take care of the enemies. Obito and Minato engage in battle, with Obito being saved from an attack by Minato. Another group of pursuers catch up to Rin and Kakashi's group. Kakashi tells him Rin to go on ahead while he stalls the enemies, but one of their escorts is hit and falls off the bridge into a river.

A young Guy questions his father Duy on being optimistic despite criticisms from other people in the village. Duy reiterated that becoming strong is not about winning or defeating enemies, but protecting something precious. Guy continues his training and frequently sees Kakashi, which inspires him to challenge. However, Duy disagrees Guy's proposition on challenging Kakashi and suggests to impose a self-rule. Guy follows and exerts his training just not to challenge Kakashi. After hardwork and perseverance, Guy finally graduates from the Academy and start accepting missions. Guy also notices his father taking lousy, low rank missions. Before departing on a mission, Guy overhears a conversation between his father and a Jonin which seems to be dissatisfied with Duy's performance. He also realizes that his father's seemingly underperformance is due to his training on the Eight Gates every night, which Duy passes and trains Guy on using it. During a mission, Guy's team encounters the Seven Ninja Swordsmen of Mist and is cornered. Realising the danger it poses, Duy appears and tells Guy to flee while he holds them off using the Eight Gates. Guy is distraught that his father is about to sacrifice his life but Duy tells his son that he is following his self-rule. In the present time, Guy remembers his father's self-rule: "To protect something precious enough to give your life for" and finally activates the eighth gate and is cloaked in red vapor. Madara ridicules him by saying that the red vapor reminds him of falling autumn leaves but Guy rebuffs by saying that those leaves become the nutrients for fresh green leaves and advances to attack Madara with the Evening Elephant.

In the sky, Guy uses the Evening Elephant again and kicks Madara in the air in order to match his flight. Minato tells the others they have to help Guy, and gives Lee one of his kunai. As Guy begins his second use of the Evening Elephant, Madara shields his attack with his Truth-Seeking Ball, countering with one of his own. Lee throws the kunai between Guy and the attack, so that Minato can use the Flying Rajin Jutsu to send the orbs away. Gaara lifts Kakashi close to Madara so that he can use Kamui to create an opening in Madara's defense. Guy lands the final "step" of the Evening Elephant directly into Madara, pushing him through the back of his shield. Despite the devastating attack, Madara stands once again, stating his excitement has not reached this level since fighting Hashirama. After waking up in the dimension, Naruto finds and questions a floating man named Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki, the Sage of Six Paths who tells Naruto about the cycle of reincarnation of the Sage's sons, Indra and Ashura.

Being caught in the Infinite Tsukuyomi, Tsunade dreams about changing the past that she sits near a lake and hears Jiraiya telling her that he finished his latest work before leaving. She looks at the papers, which are titled "Jiraiya's Ninja Scrolls" and recalls when he was still in the middle of writing it and he asked her to be the first one to read it, even though she declined. As she reads it, the story begins with the tale of a nine tailed fox spirit, which can smash mountains and create tidal waves and a band of ninja arose to defend their village when it attacked until a lone shinobi staked his life to seal the beast away. The hero who fought the Nine Tails is revealed to be Minato, who survived the battle. One morning, he greets Kushina, who also survives and asks him how his meeting with the Third Hokage went. Minato remembers him and the Third meeting with the Uchiha clan to insure their allegiance with them will continue forever. Naruto wakes up and goes outside for the mission. The villagers are aware of Naruto being the Jinchūriki of the Nine Tails, but respects for him due to being the Hokage's son. He arrives at the Uchiha compound to pick up Sasuke and greets Itachi. Sasuke is displeased to have to be picked up Naruto every morning and denies Naruto's insistence they are friends before running off to meet up with their team. At the village's gates, two guards find a passed out ninja, who only says "Ageha" when they ask him what's wrong. Team 7 goes to the cemetery to visit the grave and monument of the ninjas who died in combat and tells them a story of a shinobi captain who committed suicide after being condemned for saving his comrades rather than completing the mission. He reminds them the importance of teamwork and asks them to go train. Sasuke privately asks why was he placed on the same team with Naruto, even though he says he is not against it. Kakashi assumes Sasuke, the best student of his class, is frustrated that the team is getting S-rank missions and blames Naruto, the last of their class, for this. As Naruto and Sakura walk, he shows excitement for their mission and when asked by Sakura for this, he replies he is going to be Hokage one day. Sasuke agrees but adds due to Naruto being the Fourth Hokage's son, he is shown favoritism. Angry, Naruto and Sasuke fight but Sakura stops them. Naruto challenges Sasuke to race with him to the top of a rock and takes off without warning. Sasuke and Sakura see a signal fired into the sky, and Kakashi tells them the Hokage is calling for them to assemble. As Naruto races to the rock, he vows to himself to never give up, and doesn't notice the crack in the ground and falls. As he panics, he remembers Jiraiya telling him it would be interesting to see if the power that was given to him is truly for him and Naruto has to figure a way out if he lives. Naruto enters into his consciousness and encounters Kurama. Naruto is fully aware of Kurama being inside his body and demands Kurama lend him its chakra, to which Kurama replies he is mistaken and envelopes him with its chakra, saying that if Naruto dies so does Kurama. Naruto snaps back into reality and remembers when Jiraiya taught him the Summoning Jutsu, and Naruto successfully summons Gamabunta, saving himself. Kakashi, Sasuke and Sakura later arrive to find Naruto unharmed. In his office, Minato remembers the day the Nine Tails attacked the village and Kushina was about to reseal the beast back into her body, at the cost of her life. Minato convinced her to instead seal half of Kurama's chakra in her and the other half in Naruto. In an earlier talk, Jiraiya told Minato that Naruto will learn how to control Kurama's chakra in no time. Minato wonders that if Naruto is the "Child of the Prophecy" but has not fully controlled the Nine Tails' chakra, was he too soon to give Naruto his mission. Team Kakashi, Guy, Asuma and Kurenai gather together and are informed they will be searching for missing shinobi, and they scatter to different routes.

Sasuke wonders about his proficiency with the Chidori and considers asking Fugaku, but he tells him he's busy. Itachi invites Sasuke to participate in a discussion with their father. Fugaku questions Itachi, who reports he believes Minato's efforts in changing the way the Uchiha are treated are sincere. Itachi adds that for it to happen, the Uchiha must change as well, meeting them in the middle. Sasuke is appalled by Itachi's comment, but is cut off by Fugaku, who is certain Itachi came to that conclusion after careful consideration, and considers finding common ground a good decision. Sasuke resents Fugaku always siding with Itachi. Itachi reveals the Uchiha have been chosen for a long term mission that would keep some of them away. Fugaku's support for Itachi taking on the mission angers Sasuke, who channels his frustration into his Chidori training. Sakura brings him food, but an enraged Sasuke tosses it aside, causing Naruto to request him to apologize. Sasuke further antagonizes Naruto, and the two begin fighting, despite Sakura's attempts to defuse the situation. Minato intervenes just as they are about to clash Chidori and Rasengan. Minato is taken aback by Sasuke's anger, which only grows stronger when he sees the destruction caused by Naruto's Rasengan is much greater than what he has achieved with the Chidori. Minato asks Naruto why he used the Rasengan against Sasuke, and Naruto explains Sasuke's constant refusal in acknowledging him, vowing to make it happen someday. Sasuke and Fugaku talk, and Sasuke decides to no longer expect anything from his father, and asks something from him. Sasuke requests to be taken off Team 7, is transferred to the Leaf Police Force, and leaves to shadow other Uchiha on their long term mission. Jiraiya makes Naruto realize that Sasuke's request means that in some way, he is aware of Naruto's strength. Jiraiya intends to leave to find out more about Orochimaru, and Naruto suggests going with him to train. With Team 7 split up, Sakura, unwilling to lag behind Naruto and Sasuke, takes up the opportunity and requests to be trained by Tsunade who accepts. On the move, Shisui questions Sasuke's resolve in joining the mission, when everyone else is ranked above him and Sasuke explains his motivation. Kushina, Minato, Sakura, and Team 10 go see Naruto and Jiraiya off. Orochimaru and Danzō meet to discuss who is to blame for the failure of the plan involving Hizashi, that was supposed to take out a large amount of pro-Minato shinobi. Danzō is to select a future vessel for Orochimaru. Three years go by, during which Naruto trains with Jiraiya and learns senjutsu, Sasuke trains with Shisui and further develops the Chidori, and Sakura trains with Tsunade to learn the Reverse Seal. Upon his return to the village, Fugaku learns from the reports Sasuke became second only to Shisui, and when Sasuke declares he will also surpass Itachi, he promotes him in the Leaf Police Force, to see it Sasuke can back his claims up with action. Sasuke accepts, and leaves, angrily remembering the day he left Konoha.

Shisui tends to a small injury of Itachi's, who still needs to get used to delay between his Sharingan's perception and his reaction time. Shisui takes Itachi back to the Uchiha compound, and the two talk about the events of the day. Years later, Itachi joins the Anbu to watch Konaha from the shadows.

Team 7 continues to wait for the light of the Infinite Tsukuyomi to subside. Sasuke continues to ponder about Itachi's memories. In them, Fugaku congratulates Itachi on becoming an Anbu, but reminds him that his loyalty is first and foremost to the clan. Shisui entrusts Itachi with his remaining eye, and commits suicide, awakening Itachi's Mangekyō Sharingan. Itachi beats up Inabi, Yashiro, and Tekka, when they accuse him of having killed Shisui. Fugaku questions what is happening, and Sasuke asks Itachi to stop. Itachi feigns regret, looking at Sasuke with his Mangekyō Sharingan, hoping Sasuke will realize how shallow the clan is. Itachi is promoted to Anbu captain, and thought not joining Root, he is to report to Danzō, who places subordinates under him, and tasks him with an assassination. Upon returning from his mission, Danzō asks Itachi his opinion on the Uchiha, and Itachi shares their growing resentment of the village can no longer be ignored. Fugaku orders Itachi to meet him alone after a clan meeting. Fugaku shows Itachi the Stone Tablet in the Naka Shrine, telling him his Mangekyō Sharingan should be able to decipher more of it than the Sharingan. Itachi asks if Fugaku wants him to read it for him. Fugaku reveals his own Mangekyō Sharingan, having awakened it during the Third Shinobi World War, when a comrade sacrificed himself to save him. Fugaku and Itachi discuss the clan's situation and wishes, which include Fugaku becoming Hokage. Fugaku has kept his Mangekyō Sharingan a secret from others, certain that if the Uchiha knew he could control the Nine-Tails, the conflict would escalate, and through genjutsu, shows Itachi what would happen. Fugaku wants to use Itachi's position as an Anbu to restrain the upper echelons of the village, so a coup can be bloodless. Itachi informs the higher-ups about the eminent coup. Despite Hiruzen's wish for diplomacy, Danzō gives Itachi an ultimatum regarding the assassination of the Uchiha. Itachi approaches Obito for help. Obito attacks the Uchiha at the police force, while Itachi attacks the ones at the compound. Izumi tries to attack Tobi, in vain. Itachi shows Fugaku his own vision of the future, who releases his shadow clone. Itachi anticipates a fight with Fugaku, but he and Mikoto just wait for him, exchange final words before Itachi tearfully kills them. Itachi makes his final report to Hiruzen, before going in to join the Akatsuki. On his way, he kills his previous Anbu subordinates when they try to kill him. In the Akatsuki, Itachi is partnered with Jūzō Biwa.

Sasuke finishes reminiscing on Itachi's memories. Meanwhile, back on the battlefield, the light of the Infinite Tsukuyomi fades and Sasuke dispels his Susanoo. Madara returns to the ground and chastises the survivors, explaining why he believes Hashirama's dreams were flawed, but before he can do much more, Black Zetsu suddenly stabs Madara through the heart. Exclaiming in shock, Madara begins to swell and huge amounts of chakra are drawn to his location. Sasuke and Naruto attempt to stop the plan from succeeding, while Black Zetsu explains that he has been waiting for this moment for eons and that it is the will of Kaguya Ōtsutsuki. Black Zetsu also reveals that every human trapped in the Infinite Tsukuyomi will eventually turn into White Zetsu. Madara asks why the tablet said the technique would calm all wars in the world, only to realize in shock that Black Zetsu had made revisions to the Stone Tablet and that he was merely a pawn for the revival.

The young So emperor Tenji sends his soldiers and they return with a mysterious woman who, after wiping away the memories of those present, introduces herself as Kaguya and claims herself as protector of the God Tree while requesting an attendant. Soon after, falling in love with Kaguya as they both desire peace in the world, Tenji finds himself at odds with representatives from the Land of Ka who seek to expand their territory by any means from false documents to war. Even learning that Ka is starting to stir conflict, Tenji decrees to his subjects they are not to attack Ka on any reason. But when men from Ka attempt to abduct Kaguya, she effortlessly slaughters them and a Ka representative named Suzaku later exposes her actions during peace negotiation. This forces Tenji, unaware that she was pregnant with their twin sons, to order Kaguya's death to keep the peace. Betrayed, Kaguya makes her way to the God Tree while her attendant sacrificed herself to protect her from arrow fire. Kaguya eats the God Tree's fruit and uses her newly gained powers to invoke the Infinite Tsukuyomi, binding Tenji and those caught in its light within the God Tree's roots.

One day while resolving a conflict over water between farmers, the brothers meet a toad named Gamamaru who points them toward the mountains around the God Tree, and asks them if they know it. The two identify it as the Peak of Demise which their mother told them was off-limits, but Gamamaru reveals the land is weakening because the God Tree and the truth of a ritual practice Kaguya placed for the people to follow. Though Gamamaru told them to see the truth beyond the peak for themselves, the brothers instead encounter a fraud medicine salesman with Hagoromo learning of their mother is viewed as a tyrant in other lands. When Hagoromo notices a girl he cared for named Haori leaving to participate in the God Tree ritual to become its servant, he and his brother confront Kaguya over answers to the ritual. But Kaguya explains that the ritual should not concern them and this it is to prepare for coming of "the others." This forces the brothers to go to the Peak of Demise, Hagoromo awakens the Sharingan upon finding Haori and several others lifeless and bonded to the God Tree's roots. The brothers later meet Gamamaru as he takes them to Mount Myoboku where he uses a Memory Stone to explain the origins of the God Tree and their mother's arrival to the world.

After Hagoromo completed his training under the Toad Sage, unable to contact Hamura via messenger toad, he decides to confront his mother. But before Hagoromo leaves, Gamamaru gives him a special seal tag instilled with great sage power refined over the centuries in case he must replenish. Hagoromo confronts Kaguya about her actions, the latter beyond reason as she deems her son an ungrateful brat before having a brain-washed Hamura attack his brother. While forced to fight his brother to the death, Hagoromo's Sharingan evolves into the Rinnegan and uses the seal tag to restore Hamura's free will. With both sons against her, a livid Kaguya merges herself into the God Tree and transforms into the Ten-Tails to siphon their chakra. The battle lasted for months before the brothers were able to defeat Kaguya, their mother sealed inside Hagoromo's body. Researching the Infinite Tsukiyomi, Hagoromo was able to free most of the people bound in the God Tree and later extracts his mother's chakra and divides it into the tailed beasts before sealing the now-powerless Gedo Statue within the moon. Hamura, understanding their mother's reason, departs to the moon with his family to watch over her while his brother, revered as the Sage of Six Paths, works to spread Ninshu across the world. However, revealed to have been created by Kaguya seconds before she was sealed, Black Zetsu explains that his purpose was to shape events to enable Kaguya's return.

Kaguya voices her hatred for her sons. Outraged by Black Zetsu's claims, Naruto frees himself and Sasuke, disagreeing with him about those who shape shinobi history and how mothers should feel about their children. Sasuke surmises they need to create an opening to seal Kaguya, Naruto decides to use a certain jutsu, and starts filling Sasuke in on it. Black Zetsu dismisses them, pointing out Kaguya can absorb all jutsu. From afar, Sakura observes them, relaying the information to Kakashi, who is still in awe of Kaguya's power. Naruto's shadow clone heals Obito. Sasuke is dubious about Naruto's strategy involving a jutsu he practiced in secret even more than the Rasengan, but agrees to try it. He engulfs Kaguya with Amaterasu, which she effortlessly absorbs. Naruto moves in and transforms into a group of naked men, stunning Kaguya. Sakura is irate that Naruto would try that on someone so powerful, but is shocked when Naruto lands a hit on Kaguya. Kakashi wonders if Jiraiya is watching Naruto save the world with perverted ninjutsu. Sasuke teleports Kaguya between himself and Naruto, almost making physical contact, but Kaguya teleports everyone to her ice dimension, locking them in place with ice. Naruto's shadow clone, Sakura, and Kakashi discuss Kaguya's jutsu. Kaguya escapes the ice, and moves in to absorb their chakra again. Sasuke frees himself and Naruto with Amaterasu and Kagutsuchi. At Black Zetsu's suggestion, Kaguya splits them up, throwing Sasuke in her desert dimension. Naruto tries to keep the portal open, to no avail. Naruto evades Kaguya, who causes the surrounding landscape to attack Naruto. Obito wakes up, and is brought up to speed on the situation. They decide to assist in the battle. Sasuke wanders through the desert dimension. Naruto's clone finishes explaining the situation to Obito. They watch the original Naruto dodging the terrain, before finally allowing himself be captured to draw Kaguya out. Obito notices Kaguya's use of Space–Time Ninjutsu, and is certain that he can sync his Kamui with it, and bring Sasuke back if he is in another dimension. Due to the great chakra cost it would require, Sakura volunteers her stored chakra. Obito is prepared to die if he has to. In the real world, the four Hokage converge on Madara's severed lower half, and discuss what has happened and how to proceed.

Hagoromo explains to the four Hokage that Naruto and Sasuke are his sons' reincarnations, and that they're battling his mother. So the four can fully understand the situation, Hagoromo explains the origins of Ninshū. After Kaguya was sealed, Hagoromo began wandering the world, to restore the land ravaged by the fight against the Ten-Tails, and to find homes for the tailed beasts. Gamamaru gives Hagoromo another prophecy, about the tailed beasts and a "blue-eyed youth" and bids him farewell. Hagoromo comes across a broken bridge, and decides to repair it, against the protests of Futami, a thief who uses the broken bridge to scam and steal from people. Hagoromo warns a would-be victim about him, enraging him. After days watching Hagoromo restoring the bridge, Futami himself starts to help, so Hagoromo can leave sooner, intending to destroy the restored bridge again after he leaves. Seeing the two rebuilding the bridge, others begin to help. After the bridge is done, Futami leaves with Hagoromo, having changed his way. After getting to know each other more, Hagoromo shares his chakra with Futami, who asks to become his apprentice. Hagoromo discovers another purpose for his journey, bonding people through chakra. The two come across another broken bridge, with another thief, and the situation repeats itself. Hagoromo begins amassing more followers, and finds places where he could release the tailed beasts. Hagoromo's followers scatter, spreading Ninshū across the world. On his deathbed, Hagoromo releases the tailed beasts to the places he found. After his journey was done, Hagoromo returned to the Land of Ancestors, where he married and had two children, though his wife died after giving birth to Ashura. Unnoticed by Hagoromo, Black Zetsu set his sights on his sons.

The next day, the two fish together, Indra catching a big fish, and Ashura only getting a piece of driftwood. Indra transforms the driftwood into a fish. Indra showcases his talent at manipulating chakra to his father, brother, and other ninshū followers, calling the hand formations used to shape the chakra "seals" and the effects "jutsu". Indra's innovations change ninshū, giving it practical, everyday uses. From the shadows, Black Zetsu observes Indra. Indra shares his concerns about the potential applications of jutsu with Hagoromo, who argues that if Indra had not had such a breakthrough, someone else would have. Indra and Ashura spar. Futami mentions to Hagoromo he believes the future of ninshū would be safe under Indra's leadership. Ashura goes to play with his friends, who decide to go hunt a wild boar that has been damaging the fields, confident Ashura's Ninshū will save them if necessary. Having previously only detected its presence, Indra meets Black Zetsu, who talks about a power he can awaken if he loses someone he loves. Indra fears for Ashura. Asura and his friends are attacked by the wild boar, which kills their dog Shiro. Ashura struggles to perform Ninshū, but Indra arrives in time to save him. Ashura notices a change in Indra's eyes, which have awakened the Sharingan. Indra confronts Black Zetsu, who tells him to use those eyes to see the truth. Indra grows harsher, more isolated, and more focused on performing jutsu. Black Zetsu continues to influence him.

Ashura worries that Indra's demeanor will alienate others. Taisō asks him to clear a few trees to make a path between fields, making a shortcut for his mother. However, it was a lie. Later, Taisō is restrained, Indra finding him guilty of having the trees cleared without others' consent, and Ashura gullible for having believed him. Taisō confesses he wanted a path to get medicine for his mother. Ashura asks why he didn't tell the truth, as he would have used Ninshū to heal her, but Taisō reveals his mother hates it. As Ashura was deceived into clearing the path, Indra will not punish him. Hagoromo intervenes, suggesting Indra is being too strict, and that everyone makes mistakes. Indra is adamant that crimes should be punished to deter future crimes. At night, Ashura breaks Taisō out, but they're discovered by Indra, who chastises Ashura and defeats him. From afar, Hagoromo watches the two. At the anniversary of Shiro's death, Ashura and Hagoromo discuss Indra, his eyes, and the differences between him and Asura. The day comes when Hagoromo is to decide his successor as the leader of Ninshū. Hagoromo hands them scrolls, each one with a location that was damaged by the fight against the Ten-Tails. Hagoromo wants each to go to a location, and solve whatever problem remains. He will pick his successor based on the results. Ashura is baffled by Hagoromo's decision, having neither the skill nor the desire to take over Ninshū, willing to simply aid Indra. Hagoromo discusses the two with Gamamaru as the two depart. Ashura notices Taisō following him. Taisō explains that after telling his mother of what Ashura did for him, she told him to go aid him in his journey. The two journey to where the God Tree used to be, finding a village there. The two are attacked by the villagers, fearful they're more robbers. While avoiding one of their attacks, one of the attackers hurts another. Ashura heals her injury. Ashura and Taisō are welcomed into the village. The next day, the two grow suspicious when they're not allowed to go where Ashura senses the God Tree. The woman who Ashura healed, Kanna, wishes him to heal her mother. Ashura notices something with strong chakra connected to her, but can't heal her. Taisō finds graves of several others who perished to the same illness. Ashura decides to go to the God Tree, and is aided by Taisō and Kanna. The three venture down a cave among the God Tree's roots.

Ashura feels his chakra reacting to the location. He comes to the conclusion that the sap of the God Tree is what is making people sick. It acts as a fertilizer to the land, and when people eat food grown in that land, the sap builds up on them. Ashura and Taizō suspect that because the village elder had the place under guard, he is aware of this. Ashura, Taizō, and Kanna talk the village elder about the God Tree, Asura explaining he was sent to do something about it. The elders explains how dire their situation was before the God Tree started nourishing the land, with yearly droughts, and countless deaths due to starvation. Kanna is resigned to continue living there and endure what comes. Ashura tells the villagers about the dangers of the God Tree, but the villagers turn against him when they learn he's from the village of Ninshū. Hagoromo and Gamamaru discuss Indra and Ashura's missions, both having been sent to villages with the same problem. In the village he was sent to, Indra is certain all the villagers together won't be able to reach a decision. Thinking back to Hagoromo's words, Ashura decides to help the village without destroying the God Tree, even if it takes him years. Indra returns from his journey. Kanna finds Ashura and Taizō digging a well. Hagoromo wants to wait for Ashura's return before making his decision. Indra meets with Black Zetsu, who continues to influence him. After a year has passed, Ashura returns to the Land of Ancestors with some of the villagers. Gamamaru informs Hagoromo what he learned watching the two from afar. In the village Ashura visited, after learning his plan to dig a well, the villagers helped him, and Ashura taught them Ninshū. Working together, they managed to find water, allowing them to safely destroy the God Tree. Hagoromo reaches a decision.

Hagoromo chooses Ashura as his successor, to the surprise of all. Indra asks why Hagoromo did not chose him. Hagoromo received word the village Indra was sent to is almost destroyed, and asks how Indra performed his task. He responds he did the same as Ashura, giving the village water and destroying what was left of the God Tree, and that he did it alone. Hagoromo reveals that after Indra left, the villagers began fighting over the water rights, almost destroying the village. Hagoromo commends Indra for his Sharingan, and asks him to support Ashura in upholding Ninshū. Indra leaves, followed by two of people loyal to him. That night, by themselves, Indra's followers think they should appeal to Hagoromo. Indra thanks them, and kills them. A feast is held to celebrate Ashura's appointment. Taizō and Kanna discuss Indra and Ashura. Ashura questions Hagoromo's decision, and Hagoromo explains how Indra's Sharingan has impaired his ability to understand others, unlike Ashura. Hagoromo asks Ashura to join forces with Indra, and imparts Ashura with power. Indra attacks the celebration, denouncing love as the way to shape Ninshū, seeing cooperation as a sign of weakness. Hagoromo and Ashura note his Mangekyō Sharingan. Indra attacks, but Ashura is able to withstand his attack, surprising him. Indra uses Susanoo. Hagoromo and the other Ninshū followers join Ashura. Ashura blocks one of his attacks with Truth-Seeking Balls. After sharing of their chakra, Ashura begins using Wood Style, and defeats Indra. Indra escapes, vowing to never acknowledge Ashura. Hagoromo recounts how Indra began a sect that emphasizes power, and how Black Zetsu tampered with the Stone Tablet he left behind to warn about the Sharingan. As he dies, Hagoromo tells Ashura of Indra's visit the night before, when he vowed to reincarnate until love-led Ninshū ceases to be. Hagoromo finishes his story to the four Hokage.

Sakura is initially dismissive of the idea, but changes her mind when Sasuke expresses interest in it. Sakura points out their previous failed attempts at discovering Kakashi's face. Naruto believes there should be a photo of Kakashi unmasked, though Sakura reveals she already searched it, and only found masked photos. They are approached by a man named Sukea, who having overheard them, tells them Kakashi's ninja registration photo should show him unmasked. Sukea introduces himself as a photographer interested in getting a big scoop. Sukea joins their mission. That night, the four manage to break into a secret documents' storage unit, and even find Kakashi's registration photo, but are apprehended by Anbu before they can look at it. The next day, they are scolded by the Third Hokage, and when talking to Kakashi, Sukea tries blaming the situation on Team 7. Team 7 calls him out on it, and he offers to photograph Kakashi's face himself while he eats. Team 7 points out they've tried that before, and something always interrupts them when Kakashi has a meal. Naruto tries offering Kakashi dango, but Kiba comes by with Akamaru, who jumps on some pigeons. In Sukea's photos, Kakashi's face is blocked by a pigeon, Akamaru or leaves. Team 7 is about to give up when they're approached by Teams 8 and 10. Later, Hinata runs to Kakashi, saying a woman has drowned in the river.

Ino tried body switching with Kakashi, but a frog leaps in front of her jutsu as Shino calls back his insects. Shikamaru traps Kakashi with his shadow, and Naruto gets out of his disguise, calling out for Sukea. Shikamaru begins forcing Kakashi to unmask himself, but Team Guy comes around, Neji running away from Lee, who wants to spar with him, followed by Tenten.

Obito returns with Sasuke and Sakura. Kaguya ensnares Naruto with her hair and strikes him down, only for it to be a clone as well, the real Naruto having passed it the Truth-Seeking Balls. Kaguya shifts to a high-gravity dimension, bringing everyone, including Kaguya herself, to the ground. Kaguya attacks them with her bones, but the high gravity interferes with her aim. She strikes again, compensating for it, but Obito and Kakashi throw themselves in front of it, thinking of Rin. Obito sends the bone that would have hit Kakashi away with Kamui, while he himself is struck. Obito tells Kakashi to stay a little longer.

Obito is struck by Kaguya's bone and begins turning into ash. He explains to Kakashi that the latter still needs to guide his students and the new generation while the former has nothing. Naruto tries to heal Obito to no avail and Black Zetsu mocks Obito for being a traitor, much to Naruto's anger. Obito talks to Naruto that Black Zetsu is right because of his years as a criminal and thinks about his dream of being Hokage. Sasuke tries to attack Kaguya but she diverts them all to another dimension and he goes to fight her while Naruto and Kakashi bid farewell to Obito. Before he dies, Obito credits Naruto for opening his eyes about his mistakes and how much he truly wanted to be Hokage. Seconds before he dies, Obito tells Naruto that he better become Hokage and Naruto vows to do so. After Black Zetsu continues to mock Obito after his death, the enraged Naruto severs Kaguya's left arm, where Black Zetsu is, declaring that Obito was an awesome person.

August 25, 2016
Obito meets Rin in the Afterlife, where Rin tells him that she was always watching over him and is now happy for him, where all the memories of Rin came flowing to Obito. Obito asks Rin to wait a little longer to help Kakashi, he doesn't want Kakashi to interfere in their time alone. Obito uses Kamui to appear in Kakashi's conscious and tells him he came back to help him and that he wants him to become the Sixth Hokage and Naruto to become the Seventh Hokage. Kakashi opens his eyes and becomes Kakashi of the Sharingan again, but this time with the Sharingan in both eyes. Naruto and Sasuke continue to attack Kaguya with Naruto using nine Rasenshurikens, each having the nature of all nine tailed beasts, and attacks Kaguya with their fury. The tailed beast chakra inside Kaguya becomes unstable and starts reacting to the tailed beasts inside Naruto. Kaguya then starts attacking everywhere aimlessly, becomes a rabbit like creature, and one of her arms touches Naruto's clone. Naruto says that it will suck all the chakra if it touches anyone. When one of the attacks start approaching Sakura, Naruto asks Sasuke to save her using his left eye's ability, but they see her rescued by another Susano. Both of them wonder who it was, which turns out to be Kakashi who uses Kamui Shuriken and severed many of Kaguya's arms. Naruto starts attacking Kaguya on both sides using shadow clone. With the clone coming from Kaguya's right side, and the Original from her left side, she launches an Ash Bone from the right, striking clone Naruto, which was then replaced by Sasuke, using his left eye's ability. Just when Kaguya fears and decides to shift dimensions, Sakura punches her in the back of her head. Kakashi becomes happy to see their teamwork and remembers about the time when he first met them. After a severe punch from Sakura, Naruto and Sasuke place their sealing jutsu on Kaguya at last.

Naruto and Sasuke perform the sealing Six Paths - Planetary Devastation on Kaguya to seal her away. She reverts to the Gedo Statue and the tailed beasts, including Madara, are freed. Son Goku compliments that Kurama's jinchuriki really gets it done and Kurama agrees. Kaguya is imprisoned in a levitating satellite as Sasuke tells Sakura and Kakashi that Naruto still had something to do but they needed to get far away. Black Zetsu says he will still find a way to revive Kaguya and mocks the shinobi world again. Naruto berates it for its words and throws it to the satellite, sealing it with Kaguya. With the sealing complete, Team 7 wonders how they can escape the time-space. Hagoromo and all the previous Kage bring Team 7 and the tailed beasts back, and Hagoromo congratulates them for saving the world.

September 8, 2016
All the previous Kage have returned to the Pure Land and the Tailed Beasts discuss what they plan to do now that they are free. Gyuki decides to return to Killer B and Kurama to Naruto. Hagoromo tells the tailed beasts that Naruto will serve as a meeting place between them due to them sharing their chakra with him and he asks Naruto and Sasuke if their answers changed after fighting Kaguya. Naruto says no and Hagoromo gives them instructions on how to undo the Infinite Tsukuyomi. However, Sasuke announces his intent to kill the Kage and puts the tailed beasts under genjustu before he can eliminate them as well. Sasuke tells a shocked Kakashi and Sakura that he plans to ignite a revolution to erase the world's darkness and is met with opposition from Naruto, whom he plans to kill. Naruto vows to Hagoromo to end the centuries-old feud between Ashura and Indra, in short his and Sasuke's feud. As Sasuke starts to leave to fight Naruto, Sakura tells Sasuke that she still loves him but can't do anything for him and pleads with him to not leave if he ever loved her. Calling her annoying, he knocks her out with genjustu and is condemned by Kakashi for this. Sasuke says he and Sakura have no reason to be in love but Kakashi retorts only hate needs a reason and Sakura loving him is making her suffer. Thinking of his family, Sasuke considers her love to be from their failed past and leaves with Naruto to have their battle. Hagoromo says he is disappointed but believes Naruto can help save Sasuke. Arriving at the Final Valley, Naruto says he will stop Sasuke and Sasuke will never be Hokage. Sasuke decides to explain what he believes it means to be Hokage.
47663"The Final Battle"
Transcription: "Saigo no Tatakai" (Japanese: 最後の戦い)
September 29, 2016
Sasuke explains to Naruto that, based on Itachi's way to protect the village from the shadows, a Hokage is an individual who takes on the world's hatred for the greater of the good. Sasuke decides to kill Naruto to erase the past but Naruto refuses to let him. They begin their battle with taijutsu before Naruto enters Tailed Beast Mode and Sasuke uses Susanoo to go on the offensive. As they trade blows and mentally connect, Naruto points out the Kage are finally united but Sasuke retorts that is because they had common enemies and will go back bickering now that that's over, and he will be able to control the world as he deems appropriate. Gaining the upper hand, Sasuke mocks Naruto for being defensive and lacking killing intent, but Naruto says he doesn't want to kill him. As Hagoromo starts to disappear, Kakashi asks what should he do and Hagoromo asks him to continue having faith in his students. Declaring himself the strongest in the world, Sasuke uses chakra from the imprisoned tailed beasts and draws it into his Susanoo similar to the Gedo Statue.

Transcription: "Naruto to Sasuke" (Japanese: ナルトとサスケ)
September 29, 2016
Naruto uses shadow clones to distract Sasuke while one clone amasses nature energy to fight back against Sasuke's Perfect Susanoo. Once ready, the clones merge into a single avatar and create two huge Rasenshuriken. Sasuke is delighted that Naruto is finally getting serious but Naruto shouts he wants to win against Sasuke fairly. Naruto's attack and Sasuke's Indra's Arrow collide, creating a titanic explosion and hurricane-like vortex that devastates the Final Valley and its surrounding forest, including decapitating the statues. Drained of chakra, they resort to taijutsu. Sakura wakes up from Sasuke's genjustu and learns of their battle. The battle between the two boys continues on until they are both so exhausted and injured that they can barely stand. Despite being exhausted, Sasuke uses his Rinnegan's power to absorb the chakra Kurama amassed for Naruto and prepares to kill him, but Naruto counter-punches him due to Sasuke running out of enough energy to keep his Sharingan active. Sasuke prepares a Blaze Release Chidori to end the battle and Kurama hands over the last of his chakra by fist-bumping with Naruto, and remembers when Naruto vowed to eliminate Sasuke's and the tailed beast's hatred. Naruto creates a Rasengan while imagining all his friends helping him. Their attacks collide and the resulting explosion destroys the remaining statues and engulfs Naruto and Sasuke.

Sasuke thinks of what it means as Hokage and remembers his brother, and the Uchiha massacre. Both wake up to find they have both lost an arm. Sasuke asks Naruto why he continues pursuing him and is dissatisfied with Naruto's reply they are friends. Naruto explains he feels pain when Sasuke is going through a tough time. Sasuke admits he feels the same way and has always been jealous of Naruto. Sasuke sees Naruto's memories of Itachi explaining the meaning of Hokage and realizes his newfound desire to return to his friends. The next morning, both are still unable to move and Sasuke is amused at Naruto for still wanting to fight, and he admits defeat. He asks Naruto to use his Rinnegan to undo the Infinite Tsukuyomi after his death but Naruto refuses because he wants Sasuke to work with everyone else. Sasuke is moved to tears by Naruto's words. The ruined hands of the statues and blood flowing out from their amputated arms then depict the unison seal, alluding Naruto and Sasuke's reconciliation.

Naruto meets with Iruka and Kakashi at the Academy and Kakashi says he is considering on promoting Naruto to a jonin. But because he never retook the Chunin Exams, Naruto has to complete two years of studies to be a jonin, much to his dismay. However, Naruto is cheered up as Iruka helps him and treats him to ramen afterwards. Naruto credits Iruka for being the first person to accept him, and a sentimental Iruka decides to treat Naruto with as much ramen as he wants. Months pass when Sasuke is pardoned for his services in the war and decides to leave for a journey of redemption. Sakura asks him to wait for his artificial arm to be ready, but he declines. She then asks him to let her go with him, but he again refuses by poking her on the forehead and promising to see her again. Sasuke meets with Naruto, who returns Sasuke's forehead protector, and Sasuke credits Naruto for teaching him what being a ninja means.
