Awesome: Time Mix Up
- Naruto curbstomping (but not seriously injuring) Zabuza at the bridge in order to draw out Gato's forces and then curbstomping the lot of them too. He eventually earns the nickname "Hell-God."
- Gaara catching Orochimaru in the Forest of Death.
- Jiraiya, Danzo, Anko and Sai catching Kabuto when he tries to liberate Orochimaru while the Chunin Exam Finals are happening, Jiraiya, Danzo and Sai especially leaving him to Anko's... tender mercies.
