"Arrival at the Main Battlefield!!" (主戦場到着!!, Shusenjō Tōchaku!!, Viz: The Battlefield!!) is chapter 553 of the original Naruto manga.


Naruto's initial attack on fails, as Mū senses Naruto's attack and dodges. Naruto and Gaara work together enabling Naruto to land a hit on Mū with his Planetary Rasengan. Ōnoki increases the weight of Mū's body stopping him from moving which allows Gaara to seal him before Mū could finish his statement. Gaara wants an explanation as to why Naruto is on the battlefield. Shikaku Nara informs them of the situation. Naruto, before leaving, tells Gaara that he has no intention of dying before becoming Hokage, he knows what's he's doing, and that being Kazekage does not give him the right to patronise him. Temari's squad has a hard time dealing with the Third Raikage, as well as another squad with the Second Mizukage. Dodai explains the Third's abilities and past. Kabuto erases the Third's personality in order to stall for time. Naruto arrives at Temari's location and begins attacking the Third. At the Mountains' Graveyard, Sasuke attacks and kills White Zetsu with his new Susanoo. He reveals his Eternal Mangekyō Sharingan and states that his new eyes can see well in the darkness.


  • When White Zetsu is attacked by Sasuke, he is depicted without the plant like extensions on his torso that both halves usually have.[1]
