While Tsunade was having dinner that night, Jiraiya and Naruto arrived at the same bar. Suspicious of Jiraiya's reason for looking for her, Tsunade asked what he wanted, to which he replied that Konoha wanted her to be the new Hokage. She immediately rejected the offer, saying that anyone who would willingly take the title was a fool. Naruto, enraged that she would disrespect the title of Hokage and those who had held its position so bluntly, challenged Tsunade to a battle. The two stepped outside, after which Tsunade quickly proved to be far out of Naruto's league. Unwilling to give up, however, Naruto readied his imperfect Rasengan for an attack.
