"Eight Gates Released Formation…!!" (八門遁甲の陣…!!, Hachimon Tonkō no Jin…!!) is chapter 669 of the original Naruto manga.
Launching his attack on Madara, Guy's Evening Elephant sends the Uchiha plummeting to the ground, leaving a deep crater in its wake. Guy, however, stops right after the first punch due to the pain, but soon grows accustomed to the pain and restarts the attack. Madara accepts Guy's challenge noting, however, that he should avoid any more hits like those. Lee, Minato, Kakashi, and Gaara decide to support their comrade by disabling the black substance Madara used.
With Lee opening the Sixth Gate, their strategy succeeds and they are able to warp away the black orbs and create an opening for the five steps of Guy's Evening Elephant. Still, Madara manages to get up after being pummelled into the ground, stating that he hadn't felt such excitement since his fight against Hashirama. Meanwhile, Naruto finally opens his eyes.
