Naruto and his fellow participants arrive at Forest of Death, the site of the second exam in the Chunin Test. The exam proctor Anko explains that the latest exam will be a survival game. To begin, each team will be given one of two types of scrolls. A team must get the possession of the other type of scroll by stealing it from another team and reach the goal point at the tower with both scrolls in hand. Teams will struggle fiercely over the control of scrolls, it is expected there will even be some fatalities in this test. As the exam begins, Anko offers only one piece of advice to the participants -- "Don't Get Killed!"
