Naruto finally explodes! His anger against Haku, who defeated Sasuke, unleashes the power of the Nine-tailed Fox . Naruto's Chakra becomes so intense that even Kakashi and Zabuza, fighting off in the distance, take notice. Haku is unable to do anything in the face of Naruto's hidden power. Understanding that there is no chance of victory now, Haku implores Naruto to finish him off. Haku believes that he can only answer Zabuza's expectations by winning, and now in the face of defeat, he loses his own self-worth. Naruto painfully understands Haku's strong loyalty to Zabuza and struggles to put an end to his enemy...
