When Guy first took the [[Chūnin Exams]], he was placed in a team with [[Ebisu]] and [[Genma Shiranui]]. During the second stage of the exams in the [[Forest of Death]], Guy's team came face-to-face with [[Team Minato]]. Before Obito who had taken the lead could attack them, however, Guy unceremoniously kicked [[Obito]] in the face, inadvertently saving the boy from choking on a sweet.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 599, pages 5-7</ref> During the third stage of his first [[Chūnin Exams]], Guy faced Obito once again where after trying to give Obito the nice guy pose was met with a thumbs-down. Though Guy defeated Obito, he faced his own loss against [[Kakashi Hatake]] in the next round.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 599, pages 10-12</ref> Since then, having befriended him, Guy sees Kakashi as his sworn rival.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 38, page 11</ref> They competed regularly, even in the moments preceding the [[Nine-Tails' attack on Konoha]].<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 502, page 3</ref>

Guy is the son of [[Might Duy]], who was known throughout [[Konoha]] as the "[[Eternal Genin]]". Duy was not bothered by this moniker and instead was grateful that other people cared enough to know him at all. Duy encouraged this same kind of optimism in Guy, as well as his belief that one always has youth and that they could both become [[taijutsu]] masters through diligent training. Guy did his best to embody his father's teachings, but had doubts that Duy's words were devoid of meaning. He nevertheless loved his father and fought others when they called Duy the "Eternal Genin" mockingly; when one of these fights landed him in the [[Konoha Hospital]], Duy encouraged Guy not to be upset by this loss and to instead remember that victory is achieved by defending things that are important.<ref name="c668">''Naruto'' chapter 668</ref>

{{imgRight|Obito's year group.png|Guy at his entrance ceremony.}}
During Kurama's attack on the village, Guy was among the young ninja barred from participating in the defence of the village by [[Kurenai Yūhi's Father|Kurenai's father]] and other older shinobi.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 503, page 7</ref> In later years, before Guy became a jōnin-sensei, he heard rumours of an [[Academy student]] that was determined to become a ninja despite every indication that he couldn't. When this student, [[Rock Lee]], eventually became his own student, Guy became determined to help Lee become a taijutsu master, as Lee did not have the skill to use [[ninjutsu]] or [[genjutsu]].<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 179, pages 12-15</ref>
+
Guy applied to enter Konoha's [[Ninja Academy]], but did not pass the entrance exam. [[Kakashi Hatake]] was not surprised due to Guy's lack of talent in [[ninjutsu]] and [[genjutsu]], which Guy chose to take as a supportive observation. This strength of character convinced Kakashi's father, [[Sakumo]], that Guy was not handicapped by his shortcomings and that he might be offered a position as an alternate in the year's Academy class.<ref name="c672" /> Guy was indeed allowed to enter the Academy with Kakashi, and upon graduation he was added to a [[Team Chōza|team]] that, in the anime, was led by [[Chōza Akimichi]]. The team at one point entered Konoha's [[Chūnin Exams]] and passed to the final stage; Guy himself advanced to the exams' last one-on-one match, where he lost to Kakashi.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 599</ref> While on a mission during the [[Third Shinobi World War]], Guy and his team were attacked by the [[Seven Swordsmen]] of [[Kirigakure]]. They were rescued by Duy, who used the [[Eight Gates Released Formation]] to fight off the Seven Swordsmen. Duy died from opening all [[Eight Gates]], but it satisfied his one rule for its use: giving his life to protect something precious, namely Guy.<ref name="c668"/>
   
== Personality ==
+
Guy at some point decided that Kakashi was his lifelong rival,<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 38, page 11</ref> driven by a desire to prove his perseverance could be just as good as Kakashi's natural genius. He would constantly challenge Kakashi to contests of skill, from eating contests to Rock, Paper, Scissors. Kakashi was indifferent to these contests, which only fueled Guy's desire to defeat him. In the anime, Kakashi prevailed in the earlier of these competitions, but Guy soon started catching up, eventually achieving only a one point difference in their scores that has remained consistent over the years.<ref name="ship241">''Naruto: Shippūden'' episode 241</ref> Guy is proud of his score despite the fact that, because of how varied the contests are, it is hardly representative of anything. Through their competition, Kakashi and Guy became good friends; they were hanging out together on the night of the [[Nine-Tailed Demon Fox's Attack]], yet were prevented from helping defend the village, instead being confined within a [[barrier]] to keep them safe.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 503, page 7</ref>
Known for his thick eyebrows, green jumpsuit, and shiny bowl haircut, Guy often refers to himself as {{translation|"Konoha's Sublime Green Beast of Prey"|木ノ葉の気高き碧い猛獣|Konoha no Kedakaki Aoi Mōjū}}. He has many mannerisms unique to him in the series that are meant to be seen as corny and old-fashioned, a reference to common clichés of {{translation|"youth"|青春|seishun}} in the anime. Guy is also known for going on about the "''Power of Youth''".
 
   
Guy has problems remembering the faces of persons he does not interact with frequently, best seen with his frequent fights with [[Kisame Hoshigaki]], and also his fight with the [[Three Ryūdōin Brothers]]. Tobi has even mentioned this trait in Guy.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 594, page 8</ref>
+
In the anime, Guy was aware of the losses Kakashi experienced during and after the Third Shinobi World War and tried to help him deal with them. Following the death of [[Obito Uchiha]], Guy filled in for Obito while [[Team Minato]] was on a mission into [[Iwa]]-territory. When they were surrounded, Guy tried giving his life to allow Kakashi to escape, but they were able to fight off their enemies until reinforcements arrived.<ref>''Naruto: Shippūden'' episode 288</ref> Following the death of [[Rin Nohara]], Kakashi's teacher, the [[Fourth Hokage]], sent Guy to tail Kakashi on a mission in case memories of Rin started to get to him. This proved wise: when Kakashi began hyperventilating from using the [[Chidori]] - the same jutsu that killed Rin - Guy intervened in time to save Kakashi and take him home.<ref>''Naruto: Shippūden'' episode 349</ref> Following the Fourth's death during the [[Nine-Tails]]' attack, Guy requested to be admitted into the [[Anbu]] so that he could help Kakashi through his growing depression. The [[Third Hokage]] refused his request, which [[Danzō Shimura]] seconded, explaining that Guy lacked the necessary darkness for Anbu-service. Guy witnessed this "darkness" when Kakashi provided backup for him during a meeting with the [[Land of Woods]], wherein Kakashi mercilessly killed all the Land of Woods' forces. Guy asked the Third Hokage to remove Kakashi from the Anbu because these kind of acts didn't become him.<ref name="NS357">''Naruto: Shippūden'' episode 357</ref> When the Third eventually complied, Guy suggested that Kakashi try leading a team of [[genin]] to help him regain his lost kindness.<ref name="NS360">''Naruto: Shippūden'' episode 360</ref>

[[File:Team Gai.png|thumb|left|Team Guy is formed.]]

Guy at some point heard about a boy in the Academy who was unable to use ninjutsu or genjutsu. Guy approached this boy, [[Rock Lee]], and encouraged him to use his youth to keep training. Lee was eventually added to Guy's [[Team Guy]], along with [[Neji Hyūga]] and [[Tenten]];<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 179</ref> in the anime, before accepting them, he required them all to demonstrate a desire to succeed no matter the odds.<ref name="NS360" /> Guy took a particular interest in Lee after the team's first meeting, as Lee wished to become a splendid ninja who could only use taijutsu. Guy decided to dedicate his life to helping Lee achieve his dream, teaching him all he knew of taijutsu,<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 84</ref> telling him the same keys to self-improvement his father had taught him, and encouraging him to use a rivalry with Neji to push him to new heights.<ref name="c180">''Naruto'' chapter 180</ref> Lee developed well under his guidance, as did Neji and Tenten, though Guy felt it was best to have them wait a year before entering the Chūnin Exams.<ref>''Naruto'' episode 21</ref>

[[File:Gai Pose.png|thumb|Guy's "nice guy" pose.]]
 
[[File:Gai Pose.png|thumb|Guy's "nice guy" pose.]]
Guy is best known for his "''nice guy pose''", which consists of giving a thumbs up, winking, and smiling with teeth so white they give the proverbial "''ping''". This action is often used by both Guy and Lee to indicate commitment to a statement they had just made, their highest form of a promise. Despite these odd mannerisms, Guy has shown to be capable of being as serious, ruthless and decisive as a mission's success demands if needed, as seen during the Invasion of Konoha and his battles with [[Kisame Hoshigaki]]. He is noted to be quite scary if switching to "serious", but very reliable.
+
Guy is perhaps most fully represented by his "nice guy" pose: a thumbs up, wink, and winning smile - complete with the proverbial ''ping''. The pose captures his optimism and confidence, as by striking the pose he is promising that whatever words accompany it are either true now or will become true in time. It represents his energy, as he will, through his understood-only-to-himself-and-select-others "Power of {{translation|Youth|青春|seishun}}", enthusiastically seek to live up to his promise no matter the personal investment doing so will require of him. It plumbs his deep emotional well because he only reserves it for the most important promises to the most important people for the most important reasons, and as such tears frequently stream down the face of ''somebody'' (inevitably Guy) when the pose is struck.
 
[[File:Sensei and Student The Bond of the Shinobi.JPG|thumb|left|Guy reassuring Lee.]]
 
Guy is on good terms with all of his students, but takes particular interest in [[Rock Lee]], who reminds Guy of himself in his youth in retrospect that both are considered losers and have to work hard to achieve their goals. As such, Guy puts much more interest in Lee's training than [[Neji]] 's or [[Tenten]] 's, continuing to train Lee long after the others have given up for the day. Because of this, and due to Lee's unyielding desire to master the art of [[taijutsu]], the two have developed a father-son relation that has pushed Guy to teach Lee a number of dangerous and forbidden techniques, giving the stipulation that Lee can only use them under specific circumstances. Although Guy knows of the dangers that teaching the techniques to Lee entails, Guy wishes for Lee to be able to prove himself to be a splendid ninja, and, as such, turns a blind eye to the repercussions. However, overall, Guy is a very attentive and dedicated instructor, who does everything in his power to make sure that all three of his prized students receive proper instruction in their own particular fields.
 
 
Guy, and, by extension Lee, lives his life by his own "My Rules" philosophy, which involves setting tougher goals for failure so something good comes of it. For example, he vowed to walk 500 laps around [[Konoha]] on his hands if he lost a simple game of rock, paper, scissors with Kakashi, and proceeded to do so upon losing, even though people stopped paying attention eventually. Lee's willingness to train in the same manner as Guy seems to have caused him to surpass his master's stamina, as by the end of Part I, Guy has difficulty keeping up with Lee, lamenting that he is not as youthful as he once was.
 
 
[[File:Strong Fist.JPG|thumb|Guy about to punish Lee.]]
 
Guy's teacher-student relationship with Lee also carries distinct attributes, such as when Guy will punch Lee for a slight infraction of a rule. After Guy assigns Lee an arduous training task as punishment, meant to recapture Lee's focus and discipline, the two may then burst into tears and affectionately embrace, in brief regret for the strong blow Lee was given. Guy often attempts to act in a similar way towards his other two students, although Tenten is usually resigned and more willing to take part in his antics than the more stoic Neji.
 
   
Guy is the self-proclaimed rival of [[Kakashi Hatake]], though the latter is indifferent to the former's annoyance. Since first losing to Kakashi during the [[Chūnin Exam]], Guy randomly challenges Kakashi to contests of skill, and has acquired a record of 50 wins and 49 losses in doing so (50 wins and 51 losses in the anime). Given that the contests that make up this figure are so varied (ranging from Rock, Paper, Scissors to running races), this is not much of an achievement on Guy's part nor an accurate comparison of respective combat power. Nevertheless, Guy is proud of his record. Their competitions seem to, in part, be founded on the fact that the two are polar opposites. Guy has shown to be more easily excited compared to the more laid back Kakashi. He also relies mainly on taijutsu, in contrast to Kakashi's ninjutsu specialisation, and had to work tremendously hard to reach his level of prowess, whereas Kakashi's natural talent and Sharingan made it easier for him to improve. Nevertheless, both men are great friends and also have the utmost faith in each other seen during the [[Fourth Shinobi World War]] when they entrusted the protection of their blind spots to each other. This was also expanded on in the anime, where Kakashi told Tsunade that he would need a second-in-command during the war and wanted Guy to serve that purpose. Guy's and Kakashi's level of friendship was such that when faced with five fully transformed tailed beasts preparing to fire their [[Tailed Beast Ball]] in close proximity, he was more than willing to activate the last of the [[Eight Gates]] to protect Kakashi, despite the fatal repercussions.
+
[[File:Strong Fist.png|thumb|left|Guy disciplining Lee, to be followed by manly tears.]]
  +
Guy can be serious at times despite his odd mannerisms, usually when engaging an enemy who threatens Konoha or one of his comrades.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 138</ref> But even his serious moments can be undermined by one of his eccentricities: Guy has faced [[Kisame Hoshigaki]] on three separate occasions, yet on each occasion he's been fairly confident that he never met Kisame before - Guy is aware that he has a poor memory for faces.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 567</ref> From observing the vibrancy of youth that his students possess, Guy may, in a moment of thoughtful self-reflection, wonder if his own youth has passed him by, only to immediately dismiss this as impossible because youth can never fade; if his student, Lee, should break one of his tenets of conduct, Guy will discipline him with a physical strike, only to then immediately start crying at the realisation of the harm he's inflicted and the well-intentioned passion that led Lee astray in the first place.<ref name="c38">''Naruto'' chapter 38</ref>
   
Guy can't handle sea rides and easily gets seasick when he has to travel by boat or ship. After getting over this and attempting the challenge at the [[Falls of Truth]], Guy's "inner self" rebuked him for being too old yet still maintaining a hyper-active demeanour, adding that it is not healthy for old men like him to push themselves so hard.
+
Guy refers to himself as {{translation|"Konoha's Sublime [[wikipedia:Ao (color)|Green/Blue]] Beast of Prey"|木ノ葉の気高き碧い猛獣|Konoha no Kedakaki Aoi Mōjū}}. Like many of Guy's traits, the moniker may be fitting. Lee wholeheartedly approves of Guy, modelling his own appearance and personality after Guy's so that he can become as beautiful a man as Guy is. For these similarities and their common backgrounds, Guy is in turn dedicated to Lee, doing all in his power to help Lee achieve his dream of becoming a master of taijutsu. Their almost father-son bond is so powerful as to sometimes be disturbing to others.<ref name="c38"/> In later years, Guy even developed a similar relationship to Lee's son [[Metal]], becoming like a surrogate second father/uncle to him.<ref name="BE70"/> Neji and Tenten, though they also benefit from Guy's teachings, are only willing to join in on Guy and Lee's antics up to a point, and will either rein them in or leave them to their devices if their patience has been exhausted. Kakashi shares Neji and Tenten's reservations with Guy, and is often only an unwilling or indifferent participant in their contests. Rather than discourage Guy, this further motivates him, as he wants to defeat Kakashi's "cool, hip, and trendy" personality. There is no animosity to their rivalry, however, and Kakashi in fact considers Guy to be one of his closest and most reliable friends: they work well together in the field,<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 568</ref> can understand what the other is thinking without anything being said,<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 598</ref> and are concerned for each other's well-being.<ref name="c571">''Naruto'' chapter 571, page 3</ref>

Guy is a tall and well-built man with high cheek-bones, thick eyebrows and black hair cut in a bowl style. Guy also wears a green jumpsuit, orange striped leg warmers and the standard Konoha [[flak jacket]], though it's normally unzipped and has only been seen zipped up during the [[Fourth Shinobi World War]]. His [[forehead protector]], is on a red cloth and is worn around his waist, like a belt. When he was a genin, he wore the same style of clothing with bandages wrapped around his hand and a scarf tied around his neck. His hair also had the shape of his signature bowl-style though a bit longer. When he became a chūnin, he donned the flak jacket, got his signature haircut and also removed the scarf.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 599, pages 2-3, 14</ref>

Guy is a tall and well-muscled man. He has fair skin a strong jawline, a somewhat large nose, and black hair. He is most noticeable for his shiny bowl-style haircut and thick eyebrows; [[Naruto Uzumaki]] affectionately calls him {{translation|"Master Intense Brows"|激眉先生|Gekimayu-sensei|engtv=Bushier Brows Sensei}}. He wears a green jumpsuit, orange striped leg warmers, and the standard Konoha [[flak jacket]], which he normally leaves unzipped. His red [[forehead protector]] is worn around his waist like a belt. Guy's appearance has not changed substantially during his ninja career, though as a [[genin]] his jumpsuit was sleeveless and he wore a scarf around his neck. Also as a child, he had bushy hair reaching his chin,<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 599, page 10</ref> He also later swaps his flack jacket for the redesigned Konoha model. After the Fourth Great Shinobi War, his right leg is in a cast because of the damage he received during the war.

Guy is one of Konoha's most powerful ninja, and a [[taijutsu]] specialist. Despite considering himself a loser as a child, Guy is a very talented ninja, graduating from the Academy at age 7 and becoming a [[chūnin]] at age 11. [[Itachi Uchiha]] has, on numerous occasions, warned others against underestimating Guy. Given that Itachi and his accomplices are extremely dangerous ninja, such a warning is an indicator that Guy is an excellent combatant. A testament to his skill as a ninja was him single-handedly defeating the extremely dangerous Akatsuki member, [[Kisame Hoshigaki]]. This is later reaffirmed when [[Kakashi Hatake]] trusts him to take on the [[Six-Tails]] alone during their battle with the [[Summoning: Impure World Reincarnation|reincarnated]] jinchūriki.
+
Despite a poor start in his ninja career, even considering himself a loser as a child, Might Guy's potential growth was openly acknowledged by the famous Sakumo Hatake.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 672, page 8</ref> He ultimately proved himself to be a late-bloomer, growing up to be an extremely powerful shinobi recognised as one of Konoha's strongest. His skills have been acknowledged by the likes of Itachi Uchiha (who warned the entire Akatsuki not to underestimate him) and even his "rival" Kakashi Hatake (who stated that Guy was stronger than himself when watching Guy's final battle).<ref name="c672">''Naruto'' chapter 672</ref> During the Fourth Shinobi World War, Guy was trusted by Kakashi to fight the Six-Tails alone and when he opened all eight chakra gates, he nearly defeated Madara Uchiha as the Ten-Tails' jinchūriki (who compared Guy's performance to the First Hokage), albeit this very nearly came at the loss of his life.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 667, page 16</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 669, page 17</ref>
  +
  +
Despite his permanent damage from the Fourth Shinobi World War officially ending his ninja career, after continued rehab,<ref name="BE70">''Boruto'' episode 70</ref> Guy was able to adjust to this apparent handicap to remain as powerful as ever. When necessary, Guy is still capable of using his right knee and enough leg muscles to hold his right leg off the ground when he stands, and position it as needed so that the weight works with him and not against him and employ flips and handsprings to move about quickly. Ultimately, Guy became recognised as a legendary shinobi.<ref>Boruto: Naruto the Movie novel</ref>
   
 
=== Taijutsu ===
 
=== Taijutsu ===
Might Guy is an extremely accomplished taijutsu master, with advanced knowledge if not, skill in various styles and taijutsu techniques. With his skill, he is able to fight off countless high-level ninja unarmed as demonstrated during Orochimaru's invasion of Konoha. Through his "My Rule" philosophy, Guy has gained a strong and enduring body with very high chakra reserves and immense stamina by constantly pushing his own limits, allowing him to recover from extreme exhaustion in an alarmingly short period of time and utilise the style known as "[[Strong Fist]]" to its full potential. In addition, his intense training has given him such tremendous speed that his movements can seem like he's disappearing to unfocused eyes, and strength capable of easily ploughing a full-grown man through a solid, stone wall with a single hand: both of which without the aid of chakra-enhancement.
+
[[File:Guy punches Oto.png|thumb|left|Guy punches an opponent through a wall.]]
  +
Because Guy had little to no talent in ninjutsu and genjutsu as a child, he dedicated his life to perfecting his [[taijutsu]]; his father, [[Duy]], called this early knowledge of his own strengths and weaknesses a "virtue" most shinobi did not have.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 668, pages 5-6</ref> By adulthood, Guy is a taijutsu master, using his [[Strong Fist]] style to effectively adjust his attack patterns and battle tactics to best handle the situation with various unorthodox yet effect strikes. Ultimately, his fighting skills are of such effectiveness that he almost never has to rely on any weapons. His skill has even been acknowledged by Madara himself, who believes Guy to be unsurpassed in physical combat.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 672, page 11</ref>
  +
  +
Guy has conditioned himself to the absolute peak of physical prowess by constantly challenging himself through arduous training of various surreal means. Guy's undeniable physical prowess has allowed him to perform various seemingly inhuman feats. Without the aid of chakra enhancement, his raw might is extremely impressive. With a single hand, he is able to casually plow his opponent deep into a rock wall, and with even more effort, launch the foe clear through it and a great distance away.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 117, pages 8-9</ref> Likewise, his sheer speed is so fast, consistently able to attack an opponent before they are fully aware of his presence, if at all.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 143, page 11</ref> His stamina and recovery rate lets him continue fighting for extremely long periods of time or return to battle-ready in extremely short periods of time.

==== Eight Gates ====
[[File:Gai 7th Gate.jpg|thumb|Guy after opening the Seventh Gate.]]
+
[[File:Guy's Eight Inner Gates.png|thumb|Guy opening all eight gates.]]
Like Lee, Guy is able to utilise and open the [[Eight Gates]], a feat that is difficult for even some of the most talented ninja, and has shown the ability to open at least seven of the eight gates and has been stated to be able to open the eighth as well.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 571, page 3</ref> His mastery is enough that he is capable of utilising several [[Kinjutsu|forbidden techniques]] after opening the gates, making him truly a formidable force on the battlefield.
+
Guy is able to utilise and open all of the Eight Gates, a technique passed on to him by his father.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 668, page 11</ref> His mastery of this ability allows Guy to instantly open up to and including the first seven gates, without the need of opening previous gates. With each gate he opens, different physical and mental attributes are unlocked to their fullest potential, pushing Guy's raw speed, strength, and chakra levels by considerable amounts. Consequently, his body also takes more and more damage with the opening of [[Eight Gates Released Formation|all eight gates]] causing eventual death. For this reason, Guy only opens even a single gate in order to protect something or someone precious, a philosophy taught to Guy by his father and that he passed on to Lee. At the same time, Guy's extreme training allows him to handle opening the gates for longer periods of time, able to endure the sixth gate with only noticeable exhaustion, as well as resist the after-effects of the seventh gate to continue fighting for a short period. By the Fourth Shinobi World War, Guy became able to withstand using the seventh gate repeatedly before succumbing to its effects as well as immediately adapt to the immense pain of the eighth gate.<ref>Chapter 669, page 5</ref>
   
During his second fight with Kisame, he opened the sixth gate and utilised the [[Morning Peacock]], a technique so fast that his hands were set ablaze by sheer speed and friction. In his third and final battle against [[Kisame Hoshigaki]], Guy unlocked the seventh gate to utilise a one-hit kill technique called [[Daytime Tiger]]. Because of the potential severe bodily damage opening the gates can cause, Guy has, like he has told Lee, decided that he will only open the gates if it is a life-or-death situation, or he is protecting someone dear to him. However Guy's extremely intense training routines has allowed him to handle opening the gates for longer periods of time, able to endure the sixth gate with only noticeable exhaustion, as well as resist the damaging after-effects of the seventh gate long enough to continue fighting for a short period of time.
+
[[File:Sekizō.png|thumb|left|Guy's Evening Elephant, attacking his opponent from several directions.]]
  +
Guy has created several different techniques that he can perform once certain gates have been opened: with the first gate, he can use the pile-driving [[Front Lotus]]; with the third gate, he overwhelms opponents with punches through the [[Reverse Lotus]]; with the sixth gate, Guy produces a series of rapid punches that ignite his hands through air friction, what he calls [[Morning Peacock]]; with the seventh gate, he launches concentrated air pressure at opponents that violently expands on contact, creating what he calls his one-hit kill move, the [[Daytime Tiger]]; with the eighth gate, his punches can create powerful shock-waves of air that can be used from a distance, what Guy calls [[Evening Elephant]]; also with the eighth gate, he has [[Night Guy]], a single kick of such speed that the space around him is distorted. Night Guy, though it almost kills Madara Uchiha as the Ten-Tails' jinchūriki, is responsible for the irreparable damage to Guy's right leg.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 672, pages 8-10</ref>

+
=== Ninjutsu ===
[[File:Guy summons Ningame Midair.png|thumb|left|Guy summoning Ningame.]]
+
[[File:Guy summons Ningame Midair.png|thumb|Guy summoning Ningame.]]
Unlike Lee, who specialises in taijutsu because he cannot use [[ninjutsu]] and [[genjutsu]], Guy is fully capable of using the other two forms of ninja abilities, as he is proficient enough to dispel a high-level genjutsu.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 114, page 16</ref> He makes a conscious effort to rely almost exclusively on taijutsu; going so far as to use regular disguises instead of the [[Transformation Technique]]. In the few instances that he has used ninjutsu, it has usually been off-screen, such as when he summoned [[Ningame]] prior to his first appearance. The first on-screen use of ninjutsu that he has used was once again summoning Ningame in mid-air as he chased after [[Kisame Hoshigaki]]. In the anime, he has been shown summoning a much smaller messenger tortoise to deliver an SOS to allies in a dire emergency.
+
While rarely performing any usage of ninjutsu or genjutsu (in the anime, he even prefers unconvincing disguises rather than the [[Transformation Technique]]),<ref>''Naruto'' episode 193</ref> Guy is still capable in them. He as the ability to [[Summoning Technique|summon]] tortoises, such as [[Ningame]].<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 506, page 9</ref> Additionally, it's revealed that he has a chakra nature of [[fire]] and [[lightning]].<ref name="d4"/> Guy is at least knowledgeable about other ninjutsu, recognising the [[Four Red Yang Formation]] and speaking informatively about its power and difficulty.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 631, pages 10-11</ref> He is also able to dispel a [[Temple of Nirvana Technique|high-level genjutsu]].
   
[[File:Soushuuga.png|thumb|right|Guy wielding his Sōshūga.]]
+
=== Other Skills ===
In his rivalry with Kakashi, Guy has developed an effective counter against [[Sharingan]]-users: by focusing on their feet, Guy can both predict the movements of the enemy and negate the Sharingan's necessity of having eye-contact for genjutsu techniques. Currently, Guy is the only ninja who can use this technique, though he has taught the basics of it to Asuma, Kurenai, and also Kakashi.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 143, pages 14-15</ref> In the anime, it is shown that Might Guy is knowledgeable in herbal remedies, regularly preparing them for Lee to help further his training.
+
[[File:Sōshūga.png|thumb|left|Guy wielding Sōshūga.]]

Guy has other practical skills that do not require [[chakra]] to use.

=== Chūnin Exams ===
Guy made his debut shortly before the start of the [[Chūnin Exams]], stopping Lee from using the [[Front Lotus]] on [[Sasuke Uchiha]]. He punished Lee for attempting to use a forbidden technique before having an emotional embrace with him, much to [[Team 7]]'s disgust. He appeared again during the preliminaries to watch his students' matches. He showed anger at [[Temari]]'s treatment of Tenten after their match, and disappointment with Neji when he tried to kill [[Hinata Hyūga]], having earlier instructed him to not make the match into a vendetta with the [[Hyūga clan]].

After holding them back for a year of training, Guy allows his students on [[Team Guy]] ([[Rock Lee]], [[Neji Hyūga]], and [[Tenten]]) to enter the [[Chūnin Exams]] being held in Konoha. He worries, however, that they may not behave, so he has [[Ningame]] keep an eye on them as they prepare to take the exams. Ningame catches Lee trying to use the [[Front Lotus]] on [[Sasuke Uchiha]], defying Guy's instructions to only use it while protecting something precious. Guy is summoned to reprimand Lee: he punches Lee as punishment, and then embraces him out of regret from punching him; Sasuke and his fellow [[Team Kakashi|Team 7]] members are disturbed by the display. Aware that Team 7 are [[Kakashi Hatake]]'s students, he asks them how Kakashi is. He apologises to them for Lee's behavior and tells them all to head to the exams' first stage before he departs.
   
[[File:Guy protects Lee.png|thumb|Guy intervenes in the battle between Gaara and Lee.]]
+
Team Guy advances to the preliminary stage of one-on-one fights held before the finals, and Guy watches his students' matches and cheers them on. When Tenten is badly abused after her defeat by her opponent, [[Temari]], Guy stops Lee from getting into a fight with Temari and her [[Suna]]-teammates. When Neji ignores Guy's request to not bring the [[Hyūga clan]]'s family issues into his fight with [[Hinata Hyūga]], Guy intervenes in the match, restraining Neji so that he won't kill Hinata. When Lee is matched against [[Gaara]], Guy tells him an important observation he's made: the gourd that Gaara has on his back may be significant. Although Lee takes this information with enthusiasm, it doesn't help him against Gaara's [[Shield of Sand]] once the fight begins. For this reason, Guy gives Lee permission to remove his ankle weights, thus making him fast enough to bypass Gaara's shield.
Guy then took the role of Lee's coach prior to his match with [[Gaara]], giving him general advice on what to do. During the actual fight, Lee continually found his fighting level to be inadequate in defeating Gaara, and each time Guy gave his consent for Lee to increase the strength of his attacks. When Lee began to run out of options, Guy allowed Lee to open the first five [[Eight Gates|chakra gates]] in order to defeat Gaara. Although Lee did so, his efforts were unsuccessful, and he was left heavily injured. When Gaara was about to kill Lee, Guy stepped in to stop the match, not willing to allow anything to happen to Lee. As Lee was taken away to be healed, one of the medics informed Guy that the injuries to Lee's body were so severe that he would never be able to fight as a ninja again. Guy was crushed by this prospect, and regretted ever teaching Lee so many dangerous techniques.
 
   
=== Invasion of Konoha Arc ===
+
[[File:Guy Protecting Lee.png|thumb|Guy saves Lee from Gaara.]]
A month later, when Gaara tried to finish off a hospitalised Lee, Guy once again intervened to save his beloved student. When Lee recuperated to the point of being able to watch other matches, Guy accompanied him to the final round matches, only to be surprised that Neji was defeated by [[Naruto Uzumaki]]. He later marvelled at Sasuke's ability to have replicated Lee's base speed from their sole encounter, but noted that it was much more crass than Lee's. When Sasuke unveils the [[Chidori]], it confirms Guy's suspicions as the reason why [[Kakashi]] had Sasuke replicate Lee's speed, though he is criticised for what his training did to Lee after Guy tried to criticise Kakashi for the same reason of teaching his student a dangerous technique.
+
The increased speed is insufficient against Gaara, for which reason Guy allows Lee to use the Front Lotus. The stress the Front Lotus does to Lee's body provides a brief opening for Gaara to escape unharmed, which he takes. Lee, meanwhile, still experiences the after-effects of using the Front Lotus and has difficulty fighting off Gaara's attacks. Guy signals to Lee to use the [[Reverse Lotus]]. Kakashi expresses disappointment in Guy when he realises what he's allowing Lee to do, but Guy defends his decision, as becoming a splendid ninja is the most important thing in Lee's life, and defeating Gaara will help him achieve that. The Reverse Lotus ends up failing, as Gaara uses the gourd on his back to absorb the attack. Lee is unable to move afterwards, allowing Gaara to start crushing his arms and legs. Guy intervenes, forcing Gaara to relent.
   
When the invasion of Konoha began, Guy wanted at first to aid the [[Third Hokage]], but instead teamed up with Kakashi in repelling the invading forces and protecting the unconscious spectators. Despite the seriousness of the situation, Guy still made clear that he was considering this another challenge against Kakashi over who could take out the most enemy ninja. After Kakashi gives orders to [[Sakura Haruno]], [[Naruto Uzumaki]], [[Shikamaru Nara]] and [[Pakkun]] to go after [[Sasuke Uchiha]], Guy intercepts an Oto-nin and uses him to create a hole in the wall of the arena, effectively giving the genin an exit. He later attended the Third's funeral.
+
Although Lee has lost the match and has fallen unconscious, his body gets up through muscle memory so that he can keep fighting. Guy tearfully embraces him, assuring him he's already a splendid ninja. [[Medic-nin]] come to check on Lee, but from a cursory examination of his injuries they inform Guy that the damage the Reverse Lotus did to his body is so severe that Lee won't be able to continue life as a ninja. Guy is devastated by the news, blaming himself for not stopping Lee when he had the chance and for teaching him the Reverse Lotus in the first place. A month later, on the day before the Chūnin Exams' finals are to be held, Guy visits Lee in the [[Konoha Hospital]]. He finds Gaara in Lee's room, trying to finish him off. Guy threatens to admit Gaara to the hospital as an inpatient if he doesn't leave, which Gaara complies with.

Guy takes Lee to see the final matches the next day. Because of Lee's injuries, most of the first round matches have completed by the time they reach the stadium where the finals are being held; Neji lost in his fight with [[Naruto Uzumaki]]. While watching the fight between Sasuke and Gaara, both Guy and Lee are surprised by the speed Sasuke has copied from Lee using his [[Sharingan]], though it makes sense to Guy once he sees Sasuke using Kakashi's [[Chidori]].
[[File:Strong Whirlwind.jpg|thumb|left|Guy attacks Kisame.]]
 
When Kakashi was about to be defeated by [[Akatsuki]] members [[Itachi Uchiha]] and [[Kisame Hoshigaki]], Guy arrived in time to repel Kisame and save Kakashi. When Guy stated that he had called for back-up, the two left, unwilling to start a war. Guy got Kakashi medical attention, before following the two. When he finally caught up to them, he made an attempt at a sneak attack in order to avoid Itachi's Sharingan. In doing so, he accidentally attacked [[Jiraiya]], Itachi and Kisame having already left. After apologising for his mistake, Guy learned that Jiraiya was looking for the talented medical ninja [[Tsunade]], and asked that Jiraiya be sure to find her, in the hopes that she would be able to heal Lee. Before leaving for Konoha with an unconscious [[Sasuke Uchiha]], he gave Naruto his spare green jumpsuit, as a reward for his determination. Jiraiya was, naturally, unsettled by this, but Naruto was ecstatic.
 
   
Once Tsunade was found, and returned to Konoha, she found that the operation that would heal Lee had a 50% chance of death. Although Lee was reluctant to risk his life, since that would mean he couldn't be a ninja, Guy convinced Lee to go through with the operation, saying that all the work Lee had done meant that he would definitely survive. In the event that Lee did die during the operation, Guy said that he would die too, as he had no point in living if he couldn't help Lee become a great ninja. Lee's operation was a success, and Guy visited him daily until he was ready to start training again.

The Chūnin Exams are interrupted by an [[invasion of Konoha]] and most of those watching the finals are rendered unconscious by a [[Temple of Nirvana Technique|genjutsu]]. Guy is among those who dispel it and he teams up with Kakashi to fend off invading [[Otogakure]] forces. While Kakashi arranges a team of [[genin]] to go after Sasuke and Gaara, Guy defends the area and then creates an opening for the genin to pass through; Guy worries that they won't be enough, but Kakashi has confidence in them. They return to the fight, eventually eliminating all invaders in the area except for [[Kabuto Yakushi]] and [[Baki]], who opt to flee rather than face them. Guy and the others then converge on the site where the [[Third Hokage]] fought [[Orochimaru]], but discover that he's died in battle. Guy attends the Third's funeral a few days later.

  +
When Kakashi is about to be captured by [[Akatsuki]] member [[Kisame Hoshigaki]] on the instructions of his partner, [[Itachi Uchiha]], Guy arrives in time to repel Kisame. Kakashi falls unconscious as soon as he arrives, so Guy carries him over to [[Asuma Sarutobi]] and [[Kurenai Yūhi]]. They share with Guy Kakashi's earlier warning not to look Itachi in the eye because of his Sharingan, but Guy already knows this and tells them how to combat it: looking at Itachi's feet. He instructs Kurenai to take Kakashi to a medic and Asuma to assist him in keeping Itachi and Kisame busy until the [[Anbu]] reinforcements he's requested arrive. Itachi and Kisame withdraw rather than fight.
   
When Lee's dōjō went unchallenged in one arc, Guy challenged Lee himself disguised as a stranger. Although the disguise was very bad, Lee never caught on that it was actually Guy.

[[File:Dynamic Entry.PNG|thumb|Guy unintentionally attacks Jiraiya.]]

Guy and the others take Kakashi back to his home to rest, where Guy is informed that Itachi and Kisame are after Naruto. While they're talking, Sasuke comes to visit Kakashi and is confused by his current condition. Guy and the others try keeping the return of Itachi - Sasuke's brother - a secret, but it is unwittingly revealed by [[Aoba Yamashiro]]. Sasuke runs off to find Itachi and Guy chases after him. When he catches up, he makes a [[Dynamic Entry|sneak attack]] without getting a good look at his target, fearing Itachi's Sharingan. He ends up attacking [[Jiraiya]] - who has already driven off Itachi and Kisame - and Guy apologises once he realises his mistake. When Guy prepares to head back to Konoha, Jiraiya asks him to take Sasuke, who has been rendered unconscious by Itachi. Guy tells him that Kakashi is in the same condition and muses that this, combined with Lee's injuries, makes him wish for the medical expertise of [[Tsunade]].
   
In the Third Great Beast Arc, Guy began training a visiting ninja named [[Yagura (anime)|Yagura]]. Yagura trapped Guy and Lee in a castle together, and forced them to fight each other through artificial, mute proxies - they figured this out by communicating through Morse code, then broke out by opening the first five gates, the stress of their high-speed attacks causing the constructions to break apart.

Jiraiya reveals that he and Naruto are already searching for Tsunade. Guy asks that they be sure to find her, which Naruto vows to do. Guy is impressed by Naruto's courage and gives him his spare green jumpsuit, telling him it will make a huge difference in his training. Guy departs with Sasuke, assuming that Jiraiya is just as ecstatic by the jumpsuit as Naruto is. (He isn't.)
   
Later, in the Trap Master Arc, Guy led Konoha's available [[jōnin]] to stop a suspected invasion by [[Takigakure]], though in reality the Takigakure forces were just having a training exercise.

{{main|Sasuke Recovery Mission}}

When Tsunade is brought back to Konoha to become its new [[Hokage]], Guy tracks her down just after she's finished healing Sasuke and Kakashi and begs her to look at Lee. After examining Lee, she agrees with the other medics' assessment that the damage is too severe for him to continue life as a ninja. She can heal him, but she confesses there's only 50% chance that Lee will survive the procedure; she suggests he not take the risk. Lee is crushed by the news and leaves. When he's gone, Guy shares his regrets for having Tsunade look at him, as now Lee's lost the hope he'd had up until now.
  +
  +
Guy later finds Lee in the same spot where Lee first shared his dream of being a splendid ninja. Lee muses how far he's been able to get in his career using Guy's lessons of hard work and believing in himself, but he now fears that neither of those things can help him in his current situation. Lee asks Guy what he should do. Guy says that Lee has two options: he can give up on the life of a ninja and experience great pain for abandoning his dream, or he can get the operation, and if he dies then he'll at least die pursuing his dream; Guy thinks Lee should do the latter. He reminds Lee of his vow to dedicate his life to making Lee a splendid ninja and, therefore, if Lee's life should end, so will Guy's. Lee is moved by Guy's words and decides to go through with the operation.
  +
  +
Guy is forced to leave Konoha on a mission while Lee has his operation. He completes the mission as quickly as he can and returns to Konoha just as quickly, seeking out Tsunade despite his exhaustion so that he can find out how things went. Tsunade tells him the surgery was a success, which overwhelms Guy with happiness. Moments later they are informed that Lee is missing from his room, which overwhelms Guy with worry. Tsunade realises that Lee's gone off to help the [[Sasuke Recovery Team]]. What's more, he accidentally took her bottle of [[wikipedia:sake|sake]] rather than his medicine, which overwhelms Guy with fear that Lee may unleash the [[Drunken Fist]] on somebody. Lee later safely returns, and he and Guy immediately resume their training.

They discover this trick by communicating through [[Wikipedia:Morse code|Morse code]], then break out by opening the first five [[Eight Gates|gates]], the stress of their high-speed attacks causing the constructs to break apart.

Tsunade sends Team Guy to provide backup to Team 7 on their mission to rescue the [[Fifth Kazekage]] from Akatsuki. On their way to [[Sunagakure]] to meet Kakashi and the others, they are intercepted by [[Pakkun]], who informs them that Team 7 has tracked the Kazekage to an Akatsuki base in the [[Land of Rivers]]. Team Guy is closer to the Land of Rivers than Team 7 is, so they change their course. Along the way they are attacked by [[Kisame Hoshigaki]] of Akatsuki, who Guy doesn't know. Kisame covers the surrounding desert with [[water]] and fends off Guy's students' attacks with his [[Samehada]] sword. Seeing Kisame's abilities, Guy gets the feeling that he's met Kisame before, irritating Kisame that he doesn't remember him.

Team Guy was assigned by [[Tsunade]] as back-up to assist Team 7 in rescuing Gaara. On their way to meet Team 7, Guy again encountered [[Kisame Hoshigaki]], who wanted to take revenge on Guy for hitting him during their last encounter. Guy, however, didn't seem to remember Kisame, which greatly agitated the Akatsuki member. Kisame was strong enough to overcome the entire Team Guy, but when he succeeded in imprisoning Guy's students in respective water prisons and nearly drowned Tenten, Guy opened the sixth chakra gate and used his [[Morning Peacock]] to defeat Kisame. As the group examined Kisame's corpse, they found that it was not Kisame, but merely a body double; namely a former [[Sunagakure]] ninja called [[Mukade]].
+
Team Guy joins forces against Kisame and Guy is able to take Samehada. But Samehada does not allow Guy to wield it and Kisame, meanwhile, is able to trap Lee, Neji, and Tenten in [[water prison]]s so that he can fight Guy without interference. Kisame starts to overpower him, forcing Guy to open the first five gates and attack with [[Morning Peacock]]. Kisame is defeated, but when Team Guy examines his body afterwards they discover that it is only a [[Shapeshifting Technique|doppelganger]] meant to stall them. They continue on to the Akatsuki base, but when they arrive find they are unable to enter. When Team 7 arrives shortly afterwards, Kakashi identifies it as being a [[Five-Seal Barrier]], maintained by one seal over the entrance and four more somewhere in the surrounding landscape. Neji locates the other four with his [[Byakugan]] and Team Guy splits up to remove them.

Upon reuniting with Team 7 and reaching the Akatsuki hideout, Team Guy was assigned to disable a barrier surrounding the hideout's entrance. Although they completed the task, they were forced to fight clones of themselves, though each member eventually succeeded in defeating their lookalikes. After Gaara was rescued, Guy carried Kakashi back to Konoha via a piggyback because the latter was too exhausted to walk there under his own power, due to his overuse of Mangekyō Sharingan. Their students were deeply irritated by the disturbing sight, although Guy didn't seem to notice, and instead had a race with Lee to see who could reach Konoha first.
+
Although they succeed in bringing down the barrier, thus granting Team 7 entrance, each member of Team Guy is confronted by a [[Mirrored Sudden Attacker Technique|duplicate of themselves]] as soon as the barrier is gone. Soon after Guy and his clone started fighting, matching each others attacks. After being evenly matched with his clone, Lee communicated to Guy and the rest of the team who were in the same situation and proposed a solution: to become stronger than they had been when the copies had been created. Upon listening to Lee's words, Guy managed to get the upper hand in his fight and defeated his clone. Team Guy reunites with each other after winning their battles and depart to Team 7 location, arriving in time to cut off [[Deidara]]'s escape attempt. Unable to get away, Deidara creates a [[Suicide Bombing Clone]], which Kakashi saves them from by using [[Kamui]].

Guy does so by giving Kakashi a piggyback ride and challenges their students to keep up with him; although Lee is fascinated by this training regimen, the others are deeply disturbed.

After the team finds Hinata, Katsuyu later informs them that [[Naruto]] was fighting with the last [[Pain]] and Guy insists that he and his team should provide back-up, but Katsuyu mentions that Naruto does not want anyone else to get involved, which angers Guy. They were then later present with the other villagers celebrating Naruto's defeat of Pain.

The group eventually made it to [[Island Turtle|their destination]] in the [[Land of Lightning]]. Once Guy recovered from his seasickness, he asked [[Motoi]] to help them locate Naruto. Motoi took him and Aoba to the [[Falls of Truth]], explaining that Naruto began his training to conquer the [[Nine-Tails]] by sparring with his inner-self. Interested in going through the same training, Guy approached the falls. As his "true-self" began to manifest it mocked his ideology of youthfulness, saying that "Old men shouldn't push themselves so hard". What finally emerges was apparently a blowfish, but in reality [[Kisame Hoshigaki]]. Guy immediately [[Leaf Rock-Destroying Rise|attacked him]], knocking him into the falls.

In the anime, as they make their way to their destination in the [[Land of Lightning]], they take an indirect route so that Akatsuki cannot find Naruto. Before they can even leave the harbour in the [[Land of Fire]], they are attacked by a [[Giant Marlin]]. They try to help a fisherman, [[Yūsuke]], catch the marlin, but Naruto discovers that the marlin is compelled to attack because of a shuriken embedded in its head. When the shuriken is removed, the marlin leaves them alone and they're able to set sail.

Guy and the other bodyguards become seasick soon after starting their voyage, requiring that they briefly stop at [[Benisu Island]] until they recover. They next encounter a ghost ship, whose crew was killed by the [[Giant Corpse Crab]]. Guy and the others help the crew avenge their deaths by defeating the crab, thus releasing their souls. As they continue their trip, Guy is kidnapped by a giant bird that wants Guy to babysit its chicks. When Naruto and the others come to rescue him, the bird takes them to a volcano where the "[[ultimate summoning beast]]" lives. Guy and the others team up with the bird and other local animals to defeat the beast.
Guy once again could not remember meeting Kisame before. He nevertheless recognised that Kisame was a threat and pursued him as he tried to escape the island. He first had [[Killer B]] fling him across the island, and then summoned [[Ningame]] mid-flight to provide him a stepping stone. He found Kisame trying to send intel he had gathered to Akatsuki by way of shark. To mask the shark's movement, Kisame created [[Water Release: A Thousand Feeding Sharks|a thousand more]], which Guy attempted to stop with the [[Morning Peacock]]. When he was unable to stop all of the sharks, Guy was forced to open the [[Eight Gates|Seventh Gate: Gate of Wonder]] in order to match Kisame's [[Water Release: Great Shark Bullet Technique]] with his [[Daytime Tiger]]. When the two massive techniques clash, Guy's Daytime Tiger went right through the Great Shark Missile and hit Kisame dead on, erupting into a massive shock wave large and powerful enough to have its after effects be felt some distance away.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 507, page 4-5</ref>

Continuing on, their food reserves start to run low and Guy and Naruto, in their desperation, eat a mushroom purchased from bandits. The mushroom makes them act violently, but they regain their senses with the help of [[Shima]]'s cooking in time to stop the bandits from stealing their cargo. Towards the end of their trip, Kakashi comes looking for Guy. Guy gets it into his head that it is not actually Kakashi but rather an impostor and attacks him. When the others aboard start defending Kakashi, Guy concludes that they are also impostors and attacks them as well. Kakashi is able to convince Guy that he's the real Kakashi by recounting something from when they were younger. Kakashi then explains that he's answering a distress signal that Guy sent. Guy has no memory of doing that and suspects he sent it accidentally, so Kakashi returns to Konoha.
The Konoha ninja restrained Kisame and tried to gather intel about Akatsuki from him, but he broke free of his bindings and committed suicide to prevent them from interrogating him. Seeing how far Kisame was willing to go for his comrades, Guy gained new respect for his adversary and vowed to always remember him. Hoping that the intel Kisame had would reveal something they examined it, only to be caught in [[Water Prison Technique|water prisons]] with sharks. Guy, finally experiencing the side-effects from the seventh gate, was unable to defend himself, but was saved by the others.

{{main|Fourth Shinobi World War: Countdown}}
When the [[Fourth Shinobi World War]] begins, Guy is placed in the [[Third Division]] under Kakashi's command. Still ill because of the effects of using the Seventh Gate, [[Sakura]] heals him as a concerned Lee looks on. He has recovered by the time the Third Division comes to the aid of the [[Surprise Attack Division]], restraining [[Gari]] when they first arrive.

Guy is battling seasickness by the time they reach the [[Island Turtle]] and [[Aoba Yamashiro]] looks after him until he recovers. Once he's better, he goes to the [[Falls of Truth]], where Naruto previously faced and overcame his inner-self. Aoba dares Guy to do the same, suspecting that Guy's inner-self isn't human. As his inner-self emerges from the falls, it ridicules Guy for his old age and his loss of the youth he constantly preaches about. Guy demands that his inner-self reveal itself, but what emerges from the falls appears to be an insect. Assuming this is his inner-self and that it's been deformed by his loss of youthful spirit, he [[Leaf Rock-Destroying Rise|attack]]s it to mould it back into shape. Aoba informs Guy that it's not actually his inner-self, enabling him to recognise it for what it truly is: a puffer fish.

When fighting breaks out with Akatsuki's [[Summoning: Impure World Reincarnation|reincarnated]] ninja, Guy teams up with Lee to [[Leaf Coiling Whirlwind|defend]] members of the division from [[Haku]]. Prior to returning to the fight, Guy reminds the troops not to lose their resolve when friends die. In the anime, after the [[Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist]] were summoned, Guy tells Lee to chase after [[Pakura]], while he went after [[Gari]]. Guy later regroups with the rest of his division to recuperate in a forest, as night fell.
+
[[Killer B]] emerges from the falls and informs them that it is not puffer fish, but rather [[Kisame Hoshigaki]] of Akatsuki, who is trying to escape with information about B and Naruto. After quickly incapacitating B and Aoba, Kisame attacks Guy and starts swimming to the ocean to send out the intel he's gathered. They're unable to move as quickly as Kisame can swim, so B flings Guy across the island in order to head Kisame off; this isn't enough, so Guy [[Summoning|summon]]s [[Ningame]] in mid-flight for him to use as a jumping off point to launch him the rest of the way. When he catches up, Kisame has already passed the intel to a shark, the identity of which he hides with [[Water Release: A Thousand Feeding Sharks|one thousand more]] so that the shark can escape the island. Guy tries to destroy the sharks with [[Morning Peacock]], but there are too many and he's forced to open the seventh gate. Kisame tries to stop Guy with his [[Great Shark Bullet Technique]], which Guy counters with [[Daytime Tiger]].
   
As the battle resumes the next day, Guy informs Kakashi after [[Fuguki Suikazan]] is sealed that there were only three reincarnated shinobi left on the battlefield. Upon seeing the new wave of [[White Zetsu Army]] forces approaching them, Guy tells Kakashi that they should defeat them in one fell swoop. At the same time, [[Naruto]]'s [[shadow clone]] appears on the battlefield to aid them.
+
[[File:Kisame committing suicide.png|thumb|Kisame, in death, finally gets Guy to remember him.]]
  +
The Daytime Tiger is unimpeded by the Great Shark Bullet and directly connects with Kisame, creating a giant aftershock that not only defeats him but also destroys the remaining sharks. As Guy collects the intel, Kisame states his surprise that Guy could withhold a jutsu as powerful as the Daytime Tiger until their third encounter. Since Guy doesn't remember their previous two encounters, Kisame attempts to keep fighting, prompting Guy to knock him out. He takes Kisame back to the others so that Aoba can [[Psycho Mind Transmission|interrogate]] him. Rather than be used to betray his allies, Kisame breaks free of his confinements through sheer will, traps himself in a [[water prison]] so that Guy and the others can't stop him, and summons sharks to eat him alive. Guy deeply respects how and why Kisame chose to die, so vows to remember him for the rest of his life.
   
[[File:Kakashi, guy vs Tobi.png|thumb|left|Guy attacks Tobi while Kakashi rescues Naruto.]]
+
They afterwards examine the intel that Kisame was trying to send, which turns out to be booby-trapped: they are each caught in a water prison and are trapped alongside a shark. Guy finally succumbs to the rigors of his earlier use of the Eight Gates and can't fight off his shark, requiring that the others rescue him. Another shark, meanwhile, is able to escape with Kisame's intel.
After sealing the final Swordsman, Guy and Kakashi arrive at Naruto and B's battlefield in time to stop [[Tobi]] from [[Space–Time Migration|warping]] Naruto away. Guy uses his [[Violent — Leaf Adamantine-Strength Whirlwind]] technique to force Tobi to become intangible while Kakashi retrieves Naruto. After being talked down to, Guy tells him not to underestimate him as he was Konoha's Sublime Green Beast of Prey. He tells Naruto to calm down as his explanation of the situation was jumbled, before [[Leaf Rock-Destroying Rise|destroying]] the coral covering Naruto's body. As the beasts attack again, Guy telling Kakashi that he wasn't good with faces and they all looked the same to him, he opens the [[Eight Gates|Gate of View]], he and Kakashi begin their counter-attack. As Kakashi wonders why they weren't using the regular abilities of the [[Six Paths of Pain]], Guy states that Tobi would know that they had come up with counter measures against these abilities so he wouldn't waste his time and chakra having them use it.
 
   
As their battle with the tailed beasts continued, Guy notices Naruto in the clutches of [[Son Gokū]]'s mouth. Alerting Kakashi and telling him that they had to go save him, he is unable to with the Six-Tails' [[corrosive gas]] bearing down on them at one end, and the tailed beast trapping them at the other. Turning back to back as Kakashi creates a [[shadow clone]] in the [[Manji Formation]], the men entrust their backs to each other as they face the enemy in front of them. As Guy rushes towards the gas he uses the [[Morning Peacock]] technique to burn off the gaseous attack and prepares for the next wave of attacks. As Naruto succeeds in releasing Son from Tobi's control, both Kakashi and Guy look on, shocked as the now fully-transformed jinchūriki bear down on them.

  +
When the Fourth Shinobi World War finally starts, Guy is reassigned to the [[Third Division]] of the [[Allied Shinobi Forces]]; his body is still suffering from using the Eight Gates, which [[Sakura Haruno]] tries to heal. Guy recovers by the time that the Third Division is called to help the [[Surprise Attack Division]], assisting Kakashi, Sakura, and Lee with holding off the [[Impure World Reincarnation|reincarnated]] [[Gari]], [[Pakura]], [[Haku]], and [[Zabuza Momochi]]. Zabuza covers the area in [[Hiding in Mist Technique|mist]] to hide his and the others' movements, placing the Third Division on the defensive. As the battle commences, Guy and Lee are able to [[Leaf Coiling Whirlwind|intercept]] Haku's attack on an ally. When casualties start mounting, reminds those nearby that deaths are inevitable and that they can't let that destroy their resolve.
   
As the situation becomes dire, Guy states that there was no option but for him to use the eighth gate after telling Kakashi that there was no way he would have enough strength to [[Kamui|warp away]] the five [[Tailed Beast Ball]]s that were aimed at them, but Kakashi also declines Guy's suggestion stating he would die after opening that gate. Both men are rescued however by Naruto, who deflects the attacks. Absorbed into the Nine-Tails' chakra as Naruto transforms, both men watch on at the battle between the beasts ensue. Guy later notes that it looked like a scene from the [[Wikipedia:Destroy All Monsters|Destroy All Monsters]] film.

[[File:Reinforcements Arrive.png|thumb|Naruto helps Guy and the others.]]

After Kakashi defeats Zabuza, the mist disperses and the remaining swordsmen seemingly retreat. The next day, in the anime, Guy teams up with Kakashi to keep [[Jinpachi Munashi]] and [[Kushimaru Kuriarare]] busy until the [[Sealing Team]] can deal with them. They're eventually able to reduce the number of reincarnated ninja to three, at which point part of the [[White Zetsu Army]] arrives to fight the Third Division. One of Naruto's [[shadow clone]]s arrives shortly afterwards, helping defeat the Zetsus. In the anime, the Third Division is attacked by one additional reincarnated ninja, [[Chen]]. A taijutsu expert like Guy, Chen is able to gain the advantage because his immortal body doesn't tire out, unlike Guy's. Lee saves Guy and, by talking with Chen and fighting him, is able to return his soul to the [[Pure Land]].<ref>''Naruto: Shippūden'' episode 312</ref>

=== Fourth Shinobi World War: Climax ===
After Naruto's Tailed Beast Mode is cancelled, and the men stand alongside Naruto, facing the opposition, Guy states that seeing Naruto come so far made him feel old. Somewhat shocked, Kakashi is the one to tell him that their youth wasn't over yet. Guy then stops Kakashi mid-sentence, saying that he was making him feel even older. He is later seen mobilised beside [[Kakashi Hatake]], [[Naruto Uzumaki]] and [[Killer B]] in his full Eight-Tails form preparing to assault [[Tobi]] and the [[Demonic Statue of the Outer Path]]. Launching his assault after Kakashi and his [[shadow clone]] attacks the statue once again, Guy uses his [[Little Toe Attack]] to crush the statue's foot sending it toppling over and straight into Naruto and B's uppercut attack all the while cheering Naruto on as he mocked Tobi against Kakashi's advisement. Guy later noted that the statue had been acting weird ever since it swallowed the [[Benihisago|two]] [[Kohaku no Jōhei|objects]] in its mouth. After Naruto and Kurama switched in order for the beast to explain what was happening, Guy listened on before asking what the [[Treasured Tools of the Sage of the Six Paths]] and the [[Gold and Silver Brothers]] had to do with the current situation. After he heard Tobi chide Kakashi, telling him that he spoke too easily which was why he lived a life full of so much regret, Guy asked him who exactly he was but Tobi only responded stating that it wouldn't make any difference because Guy didn't remember faces. When Naruto retorted that dreams were essential, Guy added that even if you never want your youth to end, people had to stop dreaming some time or the other.

Guy and Kakashi eventually leave the Third Division to join the original Naruto and Killer B in their fight with [[Tobi]], arriving in time to stop Tobi from capturing Naruto. Guy frees Naruto from the [[Coral Palm|coral]] that's restraining him and they all attack the reincarnated [[jinchūriki]] that Tobi is using as his [[Six Paths of Pain]]. Tobi has two of the jinchūriki enter [[Tailed Beast Mode]], following which the [[Four-Tails]] attempts to swallow Naruto. Guy and Kakashi want to help him, but must deal with the others first: while Kakashi deals with the jinchūriki, Guy repels the [[Six-Tails]]' [[Wisdom Wolf Decay]] using Morning Peacock. Naruto, meanwhile, is able to escape the Four-Tails and release it from Tobi's control.
   
[[File:Guy vs Tobi.png|thumb|left|Mighty Guy battling Tobi.]]
+
[[File:Koyubi Kōgeki.png|thumb|Guy attacks the Demonic Statue.]]
As the team prepared to attack Tobi directly, Guy noted that the use of feints would be crucial in this battle because of Tobi's abilities. Deciding that it was better to not attack him directly, Guy reaches into his pouch and retrieved his [[Sōshūga]]. Providing Naruto with backup, Guy was able to intercept one of Tobi's attacks which forced him to become intangible. Deflecting all of Tobi's attacks Guy was ultimately able to knock the masked man off his feet and send him hurling towards Naruto's [[Super Mini-Tailed Beast Ball]]. Shocked when Tobi disappeared, Guy tried to reach Naruto when the masked man reappeared but noted that the falling debris was becoming cumbersome. Later regrouping with his comrades, Guy asked them if they were okay before they wondered how they could defeat Tobi.
+
Tobi forces the remaining jinchūriki to also enter Tailed Beast Modes, expecting to destroy Guy and the others before they can release another of the [[tailed beast]]s. As five [[Tailed Beast Ball]]s bear down on them, Guy considers opening all [[Eight Gates]]. It ends up not being necessary as Naruto, by entering his own Tailed Beast Mode, deflects their attacks and subsequently frees them from Tobi. Tobi is forced to recall the tailed beasts into the [[Demonic Statue of the Outer Path]], which he uses against Naruto, B, Kakashi, and Guy. Fighting continues into the night, with neither side emerging victorious. When a light descends on the reincarnated jinchūriki, a sign that the [[Impure World Reincarnation]] has been cancelled, Tobi takes drastic action and prematurely initiates the [[Ten-Tails]]' revival. When they realise what Tobi is doing, Guy and the others focus on destroying the Demonic Statue before it can complete its metamorphosis into the Ten-Tails.
   
[[File:B sends the shinobi flying.PNG|thumb|Gyūki launches Guy, Kakashi and Naruto across the battlefield.]]
+
Tobi defends the Demonic Statue from all of their attacks and, as ever, is himself seemingly impervious to damage, with everything passing through him. After the exchange, Kakashi notices some slight damage to Tobi's mask, which he has a theory about. To test this, he has Guy and Naruto attack Tobi: Guy allows Tobi to absorb the [[Sōshūga]] he's been using, creating an opening for Naruto to attack with [[Rasengan]]. Tobi fazes through this, but Kakashi uses his [[Kamui]] on the Rasengan, causing Tobi to take damage. This confirms Kakashi's theory that Tobi is also using Kamui and must therefore have the companion [[Sharingan]] to Kakashi's. Tobi confirms this, troubling both Kakashi and Guy because of what this may mean. Nevertheless, this information gives them a way of attacking Tobi, though Kakashi is so distracted in thought that he doesn't join in until Guy brings him back to his senses. Their combined efforts succeed in destroying Tobi's mask. When they see his face, Guy and Kakashi recognise Tobi as [[Obito Uchiha]].
Noticing the small crack in Tobi's mask, Guy alerted Kakashi to the occurrence. Assuming that the crack was as a result of Naruto's last attack, Guy noted this but Kakashi disagreed noting that the crack wasn't concurrent with a punch. Obliging Kakashi's request to test out his hypothesis, Guy climbed aboard Gyūki's hand and is then launched across the battlefield towards Tobi. Confronting the masked man first, Guy uses his Sōshūga them to break the rock in front of him forcing Tobi to phase through them. Using the nunchaku Guy attacks the intangible masked man, provoking Tobi to become intangible and absorb them and as such, susceptible to Naruto's incoming attack. Guy later listened in shock as Kakashi revealed the mechanisms behind Tobi's [[Space–Time Migration|technique]].
 
   
Telling Kakashi to explain it as simply as possible and based off this, they would readjust their strategy, Guy and the others listened as Kakashi explained the mechanism behind Tobi's warping ability and intangibility. When B questioned why Kakashi's Sharingan was connected to Tobi's dimension, Guy hesitantly turns to Kakashi who questioned Tobi on where he got the eye. Shocked by the answer, Guy is later visibly angered when Tobi chastised Kakashi and shocked once again when Kurama spoke directly to Tobi before Naruto charged at the masked man in his [[Tailed Beast Mode]]. Shocked to see Naruto heading out on his own, Guy alerted Kakashi whom he soon realised was lost in deep thought. As he tried to get his comrade to focus, the two watch on as Naruto and B confronted the mask man. When Kakashi finally came around the two men charge at Tobi, with Guy remaining by Kakashi's side as he put his new strategy into action.
+
[[File:Guy attack Madara.png|thumb|left|Guy attacks Madara.]]
  +
Guy and, in particular, Kakashi are surprised that Tobi is Obito. Naruto doesn't know who Obito is, so Guy explains their history with him. Naruto notes that the past doesn't change the fact that Obito is now their enemy, which Guy agrees with and uses this to try to help Kakashi recover from the shock of seeing Obito. Obito is soon joined by a reincarnated [[Madara Uchiha]], who decides to take Naruto's [[Nine-Tails]] and Killer B's [[Eight-Tails]] before the Ten-Tails is revived. Guy helps defend them - entrusting Obito to Kakashi - but Madara is too formidable and Guy soon becomes tired. Madara tells them that fighting against him is futile, which Naruto refuses to believe. Guy is moved by Naruto's confidence and attacks Madara with Daytime Tiger, propelling him away and leaving Guy no longer able to move. Naruto and the others team up to try and destroy the Demonic Statue, but they fail and the Ten-Tails is revived.
   
Alongside Kakashi, Guy who was supporting the latter after he had collapsed, was left completely stunned upon seeing that Tobi is Obito Uchiha. As a shocked Guy and Kakashi question the once masked man, their questions are greeted with indirect answers. Later when Obito [[Fire Release: Blast Wave Wild Dance|attacks]] Guy and Kakashi, Guys calls out to his comrade who was seemingly frozen in shock. They are later further surprised by the arrival of [[Madara Uchiha]] to the battlefield.
+
B carries Guy to Naruto, who takes him into his Tailed Beast Mode to keep him safe while his chakra replenishes. Battle with the Ten-Tails interrupts the process before Guy is fully restored, requiring that Kakashi support him. The Ten-Tails attacks again, but they are saved by the arrival of the rest of the Allied Shinobi Forces; [[Shizune]] heals Guy's injuries. When the Alliance restrains the Ten-Tails, Guy and Lee open the fifth gate in order to join the attack against it, but the Ten-Tails breaks free at the last moment and repels them. When Neji is killed in the following battle, Lee mourns for him; Guy comforts him by telling him that Neji will live on so long as they continue to fight for the cause that he gave his life for. Naruto gives them [[version 1]]-like cloaks to protect them and strengthen their attacks, which they and the rest of the Alliance use to remove the Ten-Tails from Obito and Madara's control.

He made a cameo with Kakashi when Konoha received an urgent message from the Land of Demons. Guy later joins Kakashi, Tenten, [[Iruka Umino]], and [[Anko Mitarashi]] in launching a counterattack against [[Mōryō]] and his stone soldiers to buy time for Naruto, Neji, Sakura, and Lee, who were protecting [[Shion]], to defeat Mōryō. He was later seen with Kakashi after the stone soldiers retreated.

Guy does what he can to contribute to the battle, but the prolonged fighting has left him exhausted and eventually Lee must help him walk. Following Obito's defeat, they start slowly heading towards where the rest of the Alliance has engaged in another battle. Along the way they notice the [[Fifth Kazekage]] taking Naruto and Sakura Haruno in the opposite direction, towards where Obito was left in Kakashi's custody. Sensing something is wrong, Guy instructs Lee to head back, against Tenten's objections. They get back in time for Guy to save Kakashi from a [[Truth-Seeking Ball]] fired by somebody Guy doesn't recognise: [[Madara Uchiha]]. Guy is surprised to learn that it's Madara's, whose appearance has changed now that he is the jinchūriki of the Ten-Tails.

A young Guy, along with [[Shizune]], [[Asuma Sarutobi]], and Kakashi Hatake, is seen waiting in a long line at the grand opening of the [[Ramen Ichiraku]].
+
Kakashi and the others explain that Madara is now impervious to all attacks except for [[senjutsu]] and taijutsu. Although the reincarnated [[Fourth Hokage]] is technically able to use senjutsu, he can't do so in his current state. Guy therefore decides it's his responsibility to fight Madara and opens the seventh gate. He attacks with [[Daytime Tiger]], but Madara survives and Guy, weakened afterwards, must be saved from one of Madara's Truth-Seeking Balls by Lee. With Guy's attack having failed, Kakashi decides that they stand no hope against Madara. Guy corrects him: he still has the [[Eight Gates Released Formation]]. Kakashi and the Fourth try to convince him not to, but Lee tearfully understands Guy's reasons. As he punctures his heart to open the eighth gate, Guy thinks about [[Duy|his father]] and reflects that his comrades are precious enough to him to give his life protecting them.

Guy attacks Madara with [[Evening Elephant]], but the pain he experiences forces him to stop after only the first step. When Madara returns, eager to see what Guy can do, Guy starts over, sequentially delivering the first four steps of the Evening Elephant to Madara. Kakashi and the others, aware that Guy has a time limit, team up to eliminate some of the Truth-Seeking Balls that Madara is using to defend himself with. This allows Guy to hit Madara with the Evening Elephant's fifth step directly. Madara survives and, though he's winded, he invites Guy to attack him again. Guy tries additional Evening Elephants that do gradually damage Madara but, with his life about to expire, Guy realises he will need to use [[Night Guy]] if he hopes to end things. He charges at Madara and kicks him in the side, obliterating part of Madara's torso and shattering the bones in Guy's right leg.
Guy is shown, with many other villagers in Konoha, in a flashback as Naruto is trying to enter Sage Mode.

Guy succumbs to the use of all Eight Gates and passes out; his body starts roasting from the inside and his damaged leg begins to crumble into ashes. Madara's body regenerates from the damage it received and he, as thanks to Guy for being such a great opponent, fires a Truth-Seeking Ball at Guy to put him out of his misery. Naruto repels the Truth-Seeking Ball and uses his new [[Yin–Yang Release]] to stabilise Guy's life-force. After attacking Madara, Naruto takes Guy to Lee and entrusts him to his care, assuring him that Guy will live.

A year after the end of the war, Konoha is hired to provide security for the maiden voyage of the [[Tobishachimaru]]. Guy, having always wanted to fly, has Lee sneak him aboard, threatening to stop being his teacher if Lee refuses. When Kakashi catches him, Guy claims to have no interest in flying and that he merely wants to demonstrate that he can continue to be a ninja despite his leg injury. Kakashi doesn't believe him, but lets him stay and finds a place for them to ride out the trip as stowaways. During the voyage, the Tobishachimaru is hijacked by the [[Ryūha Armament Alliance]], who demand that Konoha release their leader from the [[Blood Prison]]; they will start killing hostages if Konoha takes too long and will blow up the Tobishachimaru if their demands aren't met.
  +
  +
While Kakashi confronts the hijackers to try and rescue the hostages, Guy assists Kakashi's [[ninken]] with locating the [[explosive tag]]s spread around the Tobishachimaru. Once all the explosive tags are dealt with, Guy also confronts the hijackers, drawing [[Rahyō]] into battle. Even though his leg is in a cast, Guy remains as fast as ever, allowing him to evade Rahyō's [[ice]]-augmented physical attacks. He is even able to deliver some successful kicks, though has difficulty disguising the pain it causes him. He brings out his [[Sōshūga]] in order to engage Rahyō, but watching Sōshūga's rapid swinging triggers his motion-sickness. Rather than be debilitated by it, Guy turns it into a fighting style he calls [[Seasickness Fist]]. While Rahyō struggles to hit Guy, Kakashi is meanwhile able to free himself from his restraints and fights [[Kahyō]]. Kahyō creates a large hole in the Tobishachimaru that starts sucking out the hostages. Kakashi catches Guy before he's sucked out too, but cannot maintain his hold on the ship's hull. Despite Guy's plea for Kakashi to save himself, he loses his grip and they start falling.
  +
  +
As they fall through the air towards the ground far below, Guy makes eye contact with Kakashi and together they accept the fact that they're about to die. They and the hostages are saved by [[Sai]], who takes Guy and the hostages to safety while Kakashi returns back to the Tobishachimaru. Guy returns to Konoha and is summoned before [[Tsunade]]. He tries to come up with a plausible reason for why he was aboard the Tobishachimaru, but she doesn't believe him. She's forced to take a call from the [[Third Tsuchikage]] before she can punish him, so she tells Guy to sketch the faces of the hijackers. A few months later, after Kakashi has become the Sixth [[Hokage]], Guy is training with Lee when he sees Kakashi reading a letter from Kahyō. Guy pretends disgust by their relationship, but states he won't let it interfere with his duties as Kakashi's adviser.

He invites Lee to join him, but Lee has just done the exact same thing and failed to come up with anything to get for Naruto. Guy suggests that Lee try coming up with a gift for Hinata instead, while he thinks of a gift for Naruto. Lee thinks about Hinata's post-wedding life of childcare and housework. Guy thinks of Naruto's post-wedding life of home maintenance and carrying groceries. Both simultaneously conclude they should buy dumbbells to prepare Naruto and Hinata for their lives ahead. Completely satisfied with this reasoning, Lee and Guy embrace in a long, tearful hug.

On the day of the [[Five Kage Summit]] in Konoha, Kakashi and Guy met up, before departing from the village with their escort [[Mirai Sarutobi]]. Later, the group arrived in the [[Land of Hot Water]]. There, they found annual festival/competition where a town was split between two beliefs on its origins; some believing that it was a cat spirit and others believed it to be a dog spirit. While initially enjoying the festival, they found [[Kiba Inuzuka]] and his girlfriend [[Tamaki]], a cat breeder having begun to join in the feud on different sides do to their respective animal expertise. As their couple's argument began to make the town grow into a frenzy, Mirai stopped the chaos by producing a genjutsu of Cat-Dog spirit, telling the people to stop the feuding. When Guy believed the genjutsu to be a demon and attacked it, he accidentally knocked down the main wall that split the town, convincing the villagers that it was a sign for them to truly come together.
  +
  +
During a stop an inn, they met a young orphan named [[Tatsumi]], who despite having no money, was determined to visit all the hot springs in the land in memory of her late mother. At Mirai's request, it was agreed that the little girl can join them on their own trip. Later during the trip, Tatsumi and Mirai snuck off in the hopes of a nearby hot spring rumoured to let people talk with loved ones from the past. Kakashi and Guy soon found them, learning that the rumoured hot spring was a ruse conceived by remnants of the near-forgotten [[Jashin]] cult to restore their former glory and power. Guy, along with Kakashi and Mirai, swiftly defeated the fanatics. Later, it was revealed that Kakashi and Guy's vacation was in fact a cover for their working with the Land of Hot Water to uncover the truth behind the missing girls.

Later, Lee decided to challenge his son to a match with many spectators, telling Metal that he had to win if he wants to learn the [[Eight Gates]]. During the match, Guy watch in pride as Metal began understanding the words he and Lee told him as he began using his anxiety to fuel his performance and even momentarily access the first gate to win the challenge. The three then tearfully hugged in joy at the proud moment, much to the spectators' discomfort.

Might Guy (マイト・ガイ, Maito Gai) is a jōnin of Konohagakure. A master of taijutsu, Guy leads and passes his wisdom onto the members of Team Guy.

Background Edit

Kid Might Guy

Guy as a child.

Guy is the son of Might Duy, who was known throughout Konoha as the "Eternal Genin". Duy was not bothered by this moniker and instead was grateful that other people cared enough to know him at all. Duy encouraged this same kind of optimism in Guy, as well as his belief that one always has youth and that they could both become taijutsu masters through diligent training. Guy did his best to embody his father's teachings, but had doubts that Duy's words were devoid of meaning. He nevertheless loved his father and fought others when they called Duy the "Eternal Genin" mockingly; when one of these fights landed him in the Konoha Hospital, Duy encouraged Guy not to be upset by this loss and to instead remember that victory is achieved by defending things that are important.[6]

Obito&#039;s year group

Guy at his entrance ceremony.

Guy applied to enter Konoha's Ninja Academy, but did not pass the entrance exam. Kakashi Hatake was not surprised due to Guy's lack of talent in ninjutsu and genjutsu, which Guy chose to take as a supportive observation. This strength of character convinced Kakashi's father, Sakumo, that Guy was not handicapped by his shortcomings and that he might be offered a position as an alternate in the year's Academy class.[7] Guy was indeed allowed to enter the Academy with Kakashi, and upon graduation he was added to a team that, in the anime, was led by Chōza Akimichi. The team at one point entered Konoha's Chūnin Exams and passed to the final stage; Guy himself advanced to the exams' last one-on-one match, where he lost to Kakashi.[8] While on a mission during the Third Shinobi World War, Guy and his team were attacked by the Seven Swordsmen of Kirigakure. They were rescued by Duy, who used the Eight Gates Released Formation to fight off the Seven Swordsmen. Duy died from opening all Eight Gates, but it satisfied his one rule for its use: giving his life to protect something precious, namely Guy.[6]

Guy at some point decided that Kakashi was his lifelong rival,[9] driven by a desire to prove his perseverance could be just as good as Kakashi's natural genius. He would constantly challenge Kakashi to contests of skill, from eating contests to Rock, Paper, Scissors. Kakashi was indifferent to these contests, which only fueled Guy's desire to defeat him. In the anime, Kakashi prevailed in the earlier of these competitions, but Guy soon started catching up, eventually achieving only a one point difference in their scores that has remained consistent over the years.[10] Guy is proud of his score despite the fact that, because of how varied the contests are, it is hardly representative of anything. Through their competition, Kakashi and Guy became good friends; they were hanging out together on the night of the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox's Attack, yet were prevented from helping defend the village, instead being confined within a barrier to keep them safe.[11]

In the anime, Guy was aware of the losses Kakashi experienced during and after the Third Shinobi World War and tried to help him deal with them. Following the death of Obito Uchiha, Guy filled in for Obito while Team Minato was on a mission into Iwa-territory. When they were surrounded, Guy tried giving his life to allow Kakashi to escape, but they were able to fight off their enemies until reinforcements arrived.[12] Following the death of Rin Nohara, Kakashi's teacher, the Fourth Hokage, sent Guy to tail Kakashi on a mission in case memories of Rin started to get to him. This proved wise: when Kakashi began hyperventilating from using the Chidori - the same jutsu that killed Rin - Guy intervened in time to save Kakashi and take him home.[13] Following the Fourth's death during the Nine-Tails' attack, Guy requested to be admitted into the Anbu so that he could help Kakashi through his growing depression. The Third Hokage refused his request, which Danzō Shimura seconded, explaining that Guy lacked the necessary darkness for Anbu-service. Guy witnessed this "darkness" when Kakashi provided backup for him during a meeting with the Land of Woods, wherein Kakashi mercilessly killed all the Land of Woods' forces. Guy asked the Third Hokage to remove Kakashi from the Anbu because these kind of acts didn't become him.[14] When the Third eventually complied, Guy suggested that Kakashi try leading a team of genin to help him regain his lost kindness.[15]

Team Gai

Team Guy is formed.

Guy at some point heard about a boy in the Academy who was unable to use ninjutsu or genjutsu. Guy approached this boy, Rock Lee, and encouraged him to use his youth to keep training. Lee was eventually added to Guy's Team Guy, along with Neji Hyūga and Tenten;[16] in the anime, before accepting them, he required them all to demonstrate a desire to succeed no matter the odds.[15] Guy took a particular interest in Lee after the team's first meeting, as Lee wished to become a splendid ninja who could only use taijutsu. Guy decided to dedicate his life to helping Lee achieve his dream, teaching him all he knew of taijutsu,[17] telling him the same keys to self-improvement his father had taught him, and encouraging him to use a rivalry with Neji to push him to new heights.[18] Lee developed well under his guidance, as did Neji and Tenten, though Guy felt it was best to have them wait a year before entering the Chūnin Exams.[19]

Personality Edit

Gai Pose

Guy's "nice guy" pose.

Guy is perhaps most fully represented by his "nice guy" pose: a thumbs up, wink, and winning smile - complete with the proverbial ping. The pose captures his optimism and confidence, as by striking the pose he is promising that whatever words accompany it are either true now or will become true in time. It represents his energy, as he will, through his understood-only-to-himself-and-select-others "Power of Youth (青春, seishun)", enthusiastically seek to live up to his promise no matter the personal investment doing so will require of him. It plumbs his deep emotional well because he only reserves it for the most important promises to the most important people for the most important reasons, and as such tears frequently stream down the face of somebody (inevitably Guy) when the pose is struck.

Strong Fist

Guy disciplining Lee, to be followed by manly tears.

Guy can be serious at times despite his odd mannerisms, usually when engaging an enemy who threatens Konoha or one of his comrades.[20] But even his serious moments can be undermined by one of his eccentricities: Guy has faced Kisame Hoshigaki on three separate occasions, yet on each occasion he's been fairly confident that he never met Kisame before - Guy is aware that he has a poor memory for faces.[21] From observing the vibrancy of youth that his students possess, Guy may, in a moment of thoughtful self-reflection, wonder if his own youth has passed him by, only to immediately dismiss this as impossible because youth can never fade; if his student, Lee, should break one of his tenets of conduct, Guy will discipline him with a physical strike, only to then immediately start crying at the realisation of the harm he's inflicted and the well-intentioned passion that led Lee astray in the first place.[22]

Guy refers to himself as "Konoha's Sublime Green/Blue Beast of Prey" (木ノ葉の気高き碧い猛獣, Konoha no Kedakaki Aoi Mōjū). Like many of Guy's traits, the moniker may be fitting. Lee wholeheartedly approves of Guy, modelling his own appearance and personality after Guy's so that he can become as beautiful a man as Guy is. For these similarities and their common backgrounds, Guy is in turn dedicated to Lee, doing all in his power to help Lee achieve his dream of becoming a master of taijutsu. Their almost father-son bond is so powerful as to sometimes be disturbing to others.[22] In later years, Guy even developed a similar relationship to Lee's son Metal, becoming like a surrogate second father/uncle to him.[23] Neji and Tenten, though they also benefit from Guy's teachings, are only willing to join in on Guy and Lee's antics up to a point, and will either rein them in or leave them to their devices if their patience has been exhausted. Kakashi shares Neji and Tenten's reservations with Guy, and is often only an unwilling or indifferent participant in their contests. Rather than discourage Guy, this further motivates him, as he wants to defeat Kakashi's "cool, hip, and trendy" personality. There is no animosity to their rivalry, however, and Kakashi in fact considers Guy to be one of his closest and most reliable friends: they work well together in the field,[24] can understand what the other is thinking without anything being said,[25] and are concerned for each other's well-being.[26]

Appearance Edit

  • Guy's appearance for most of the series.
  • Guy in The Last: Naruto the Movie.

Guy is a tall and well-muscled man. He has fair skin a strong jawline, a somewhat large nose, and black hair. He is most noticeable for his shiny bowl-style haircut and thick eyebrows; Naruto Uzumaki affectionately calls him "Master Intense Brows" (激眉先生, Gekimayu-sensei, English TV: Bushier Brows Sensei). He wears a green jumpsuit, orange striped leg warmers, and the standard Konoha flak jacket, which he normally leaves unzipped. His red forehead protector is worn around his waist like a belt. Guy's appearance has not changed substantially during his ninja career, though as a genin his jumpsuit was sleeveless and he wore a scarf around his neck. Also as a child, he had bushy hair reaching his chin,[27] He also later swaps his flack jacket for the redesigned Konoha model. After the Fourth Great Shinobi War, his right leg is in a cast because of the damage he received during the war.

Abilities Edit

Despite a poor start in his ninja career, even considering himself a loser as a child, Might Guy's potential growth was openly acknowledged by the famous Sakumo Hatake.[28] He ultimately proved himself to be a late-bloomer, growing up to be an extremely powerful shinobi — recognised as one of Konoha's strongest. His skills have been acknowledged by the likes of Itachi Uchiha (who warned the entire Akatsuki not to underestimate him) and even his "rival" Kakashi Hatake (who stated that Guy was stronger than himself when watching Guy's final battle).[7] During the Fourth Shinobi World War, Guy was trusted by Kakashi to fight the Six-Tails alone and when he opened all eight chakra gates, he nearly defeated Madara Uchiha as the Ten-Tails' jinchūriki (who compared Guy's performance to the First Hokage), albeit this very nearly came at the loss of his life.[29][30]

Despite his permanent damage from the Fourth Shinobi World War officially ending his ninja career, after continued rehab,[23] Guy was able to adjust to this apparent handicap to remain as powerful as ever. When necessary, Guy is still capable of using his right knee and enough leg muscles to hold his right leg off the ground when he stands, and position it as needed so that the weight works with him and not against him and employ flips and handsprings to move about quickly. Ultimately, Guy became recognised as a legendary shinobi.[31]

Taijutsu Edit

Guy punches Oto

Guy punches an opponent through a wall.

Because Guy had little to no talent in ninjutsu and genjutsu as a child, he dedicated his life to perfecting his taijutsu; his father, Duy, called this early knowledge of his own strengths and weaknesses a "virtue" most shinobi did not have.[32] By adulthood, Guy is a taijutsu master, using his Strong Fist style to effectively adjust his attack patterns and battle tactics to best handle the situation with various unorthodox yet effect strikes. Ultimately, his fighting skills are of such effectiveness that he almost never has to rely on any weapons. His skill has even been acknowledged by Madara himself, who believes Guy to be unsurpassed in physical combat.[33]

Guy has conditioned himself to the absolute peak of physical prowess by constantly challenging himself through arduous training of various surreal means. Guy's undeniable physical prowess has allowed him to perform various seemingly inhuman feats. Without the aid of chakra enhancement, his raw might is extremely impressive. With a single hand, he is able to casually plow his opponent deep into a rock wall, and with even more effort, launch the foe clear through it and a great distance away.[34] Likewise, his sheer speed is so fast, consistently able to attack an opponent before they are fully aware of his presence, if at all.[35] His stamina and recovery rate lets him continue fighting for extremely long periods of time or return to battle-ready in extremely short periods of time.

Eight Gates Edit

Guy&#039;s Eight Inner Gates

Guy opening all eight gates.

Guy is able to utilise and open all of the Eight Gates, a technique passed on to him by his father.[36] His mastery of this ability allows Guy to instantly open up to and including the first seven gates, without the need of opening previous gates. With each gate he opens, different physical and mental attributes are unlocked to their fullest potential, pushing Guy's raw speed, strength, and chakra levels by considerable amounts. Consequently, his body also takes more and more damage with the opening of all eight gates causing eventual death. For this reason, Guy only opens even a single gate in order to protect something or someone precious, a philosophy taught to Guy by his father and that he passed on to Lee. At the same time, Guy's extreme training allows him to handle opening the gates for longer periods of time, able to endure the sixth gate with only noticeable exhaustion, as well as resist the after-effects of the seventh gate to continue fighting for a short period. By the Fourth Shinobi World War, Guy became able to withstand using the seventh gate repeatedly before succumbing to its effects as well as immediately adapt to the immense pain of the eighth gate.[37]

Sekizō

Guy's Evening Elephant, attacking his opponent from several directions.

Guy has created several different techniques that he can perform once certain gates have been opened: with the first gate, he can use the pile-driving Front Lotus; with the third gate, he overwhelms opponents with punches through the Reverse Lotus; with the sixth gate, Guy produces a series of rapid punches that ignite his hands through air friction, what he calls Morning Peacock; with the seventh gate, he launches concentrated air pressure at opponents that violently expands on contact, creating what he calls his one-hit kill move, the Daytime Tiger; with the eighth gate, his punches can create powerful shock-waves of air that can be used from a distance, what Guy calls Evening Elephant; also with the eighth gate, he has Night Guy, a single kick of such speed that the space around him is distorted. Night Guy, though it almost kills Madara Uchiha as the Ten-Tails' jinchūriki, is responsible for the irreparable damage to Guy's right leg.[38]

Ninjutsu Edit

Guy summons Ningame Midair

Guy summoning Ningame.

While rarely performing any usage of ninjutsu or genjutsu (in the anime, he even prefers unconvincing disguises rather than the Transformation Technique),[39] Guy is still capable in them. He as the ability to summon tortoises, such as Ningame.[40] Additionally, it's revealed that he has a chakra nature of fire and lightning.[4] Guy is at least knowledgeable about other ninjutsu, recognising the Four Red Yang Formation and speaking informatively about its power and difficulty.[41] He is also able to dispel a high-level genjutsu.

Other Skills Edit

Sōshūga

Guy wielding Sōshūga.

Guy has other practical skills that do not require chakra to use. He is proficient with nunchaku,[42] and with his personal pair, Sōshūga, he can smash through rock[43] and trade blows with Obito's gunbai.[44] He trained Tenten extensively in using her various ninja tools,[45] showing mastery of them himself. He at times make herbal remedies to help Lee with his training, though their benefits are unclear.[46] In his mostly-one-sided competition with Kakashi, Guy has devised a way of combating Sharingan-users by focusing on the positioning of their feet to predict their movements and negate the Sharingan's eye-contact-based genjutsu.[47]

Part I Edit

Chūnin Exams Edit

Main article: Chūnin Exams After holding them back for a year of training, Guy allows his students on Team Guy (Rock Lee, Neji Hyūga, and Tenten) to enter the Chūnin Exams being held in Konoha. He worries, however, that they may not behave, so he has Ningame keep an eye on them as they prepare to take the exams. Ningame catches Lee trying to use the Front Lotus on Sasuke Uchiha, defying Guy's instructions to only use it while protecting something precious. Guy is summoned to reprimand Lee: he punches Lee as punishment, and then embraces him out of regret from punching him; Sasuke and his fellow Team 7 members are disturbed by the display. Aware that Team 7 are Kakashi Hatake's students, he asks them how Kakashi is. He apologises to them for Lee's behavior and tells them all to head to the exams' first stage before he departs.

Team Guy advances to the preliminary stage of one-on-one fights held before the finals, and Guy watches his students' matches and cheers them on. When Tenten is badly abused after her defeat by her opponent, Temari, Guy stops Lee from getting into a fight with Temari and her Suna-teammates. When Neji ignores Guy's request to not bring the Hyūga clan's family issues into his fight with Hinata Hyūga, Guy intervenes in the match, restraining Neji so that he won't kill Hinata. When Lee is matched against Gaara, Guy tells him an important observation he's made: the gourd that Gaara has on his back may be significant. Although Lee takes this information with enthusiasm, it doesn't help him against Gaara's Shield of Sand once the fight begins. For this reason, Guy gives Lee permission to remove his ankle weights, thus making him fast enough to bypass Gaara's shield.

Guy Protecting Lee

Guy saves Lee from Gaara.

The increased speed is insufficient against Gaara, for which reason Guy allows Lee to use the Front Lotus. The stress the Front Lotus does to Lee's body provides a brief opening for Gaara to escape unharmed, which he takes. Lee, meanwhile, still experiences the after-effects of using the Front Lotus and has difficulty fighting off Gaara's attacks. Guy signals to Lee to use the Reverse Lotus. Kakashi expresses disappointment in Guy when he realises what he's allowing Lee to do, but Guy defends his decision, as becoming a splendid ninja is the most important thing in Lee's life, and defeating Gaara will help him achieve that. The Reverse Lotus ends up failing, as Gaara uses the gourd on his back to absorb the attack. Lee is unable to move afterwards, allowing Gaara to start crushing his arms and legs. Guy intervenes, forcing Gaara to relent.

Although Lee has lost the match and has fallen unconscious, his body gets up through muscle memory so that he can keep fighting. Guy tearfully embraces him, assuring him he's already a splendid ninja. Medic-nin come to check on Lee, but from a cursory examination of his injuries they inform Guy that the damage the Reverse Lotus did to his body is so severe that Lee won't be able to continue life as a ninja. Guy is devastated by the news, blaming himself for not stopping Lee when he had the chance and for teaching him the Reverse Lotus in the first place. A month later, on the day before the Chūnin Exams' finals are to be held, Guy visits Lee in the Konoha Hospital. He finds Gaara in Lee's room, trying to finish him off. Guy threatens to admit Gaara to the hospital as an inpatient if he doesn't leave, which Gaara complies with.

Guy takes Lee to see the final matches the next day. Because of Lee's injuries, most of the first round matches have completed by the time they reach the stadium where the finals are being held; Neji lost in his fight with Naruto Uzumaki. While watching the fight between Sasuke and Gaara, both Guy and Lee are surprised by the speed Sasuke has copied from Lee using his Sharingan, though it makes sense to Guy once he sees Sasuke using Kakashi's Chidori.

Konoha Crush Edit

Main article: Konoha Crush The Chūnin Exams are interrupted by an invasion of Konoha and most of those watching the finals are rendered unconscious by a genjutsu. Guy is among those who dispel it and he teams up with Kakashi to fend off invading Otogakure forces. While Kakashi arranges a team of genin to go after Sasuke and Gaara, Guy defends the area and then creates an opening for the genin to pass through; Guy worries that they won't be enough, but Kakashi has confidence in them. They return to the fight, eventually eliminating all invaders in the area except for Kabuto Yakushi and Baki, who opt to flee rather than face them. Guy and the others then converge on the site where the Third Hokage fought Orochimaru, but discover that he's died in battle. Guy attends the Third's funeral a few days later.

Search for Tsunade Edit

Main article: Search for Tsunade

Leaf Strong Whirlwind

Guy attacks Kisame.

When Kakashi is about to be captured by Akatsuki member Kisame Hoshigaki on the instructions of his partner, Itachi Uchiha, Guy arrives in time to repel Kisame. Kakashi falls unconscious as soon as he arrives, so Guy carries him over to Asuma Sarutobi and Kurenai Yūhi. They share with Guy Kakashi's earlier warning not to look Itachi in the eye because of his Sharingan, but Guy already knows this and tells them how to combat it: looking at Itachi's feet. He instructs Kurenai to take Kakashi to a medic and Asuma to assist him in keeping Itachi and Kisame busy until the Anbu reinforcements he's requested arrive. Itachi and Kisame withdraw rather than fight.

Dynamic Entry

Guy unintentionally attacks Jiraiya.

Guy and the others take Kakashi back to his home to rest, where Guy is informed that Itachi and Kisame are after Naruto. While they're talking, Sasuke comes to visit Kakashi and is confused by his current condition. Guy and the others try keeping the return of Itachi - Sasuke's brother - a secret, but it is unwittingly revealed by Aoba Yamashiro. Sasuke runs off to find Itachi and Guy chases after him. When he catches up, he makes a sneak attack without getting a good look at his target, fearing Itachi's Sharingan. He ends up attacking Jiraiya - who has already driven off Itachi and Kisame - and Guy apologises once he realises his mistake. When Guy prepares to head back to Konoha, Jiraiya asks him to take Sasuke, who has been rendered unconscious by Itachi. Guy tells him that Kakashi is in the same condition and muses that this, combined with Lee's injuries, makes him wish for the medical expertise of Tsunade.

Jiraiya reveals that he and Naruto are already searching for Tsunade. Guy asks that they be sure to find her, which Naruto vows to do. Guy is impressed by Naruto's courage and gives him his spare green jumpsuit, telling him it will make a huge difference in his training. Guy departs with Sasuke, assuming that Jiraiya is just as ecstatic by the jumpsuit as Naruto is. (He isn't.)

Sasuke Recovery Mission Edit

Main article: Sasuke Recovery Mission When Tsunade is brought back to Konoha to become its new Hokage, Guy tracks her down just after she's finished healing Sasuke and Kakashi and begs her to look at Lee. After examining Lee, she agrees with the other medics' assessment that the damage is too severe for him to continue life as a ninja. She can heal him, but she confesses there's only 50% chance that Lee will survive the procedure; she suggests he not take the risk. Lee is crushed by the news and leaves. When he's gone, Guy shares his regrets for having Tsunade look at him, as now Lee's lost the hope he'd had up until now.

Guy later finds Lee in the same spot where Lee first shared his dream of being a splendid ninja. Lee muses how far he's been able to get in his career using Guy's lessons of hard work and believing in himself, but he now fears that neither of those things can help him in his current situation. Lee asks Guy what he should do. Guy says that Lee has two options: he can give up on the life of a ninja and experience great pain for abandoning his dream, or he can get the operation, and if he dies then he'll at least die pursuing his dream; Guy thinks Lee should do the latter. He reminds Lee of his vow to dedicate his life to making Lee a splendid ninja and, therefore, if Lee's life should end, so will Guy's. Lee is moved by Guy's words and decides to go through with the operation.

Guy is forced to leave Konoha on a mission while Lee has his operation. He completes the mission as quickly as he can and returns to Konoha just as quickly, seeking out Tsunade despite his exhaustion so that he can find out how things went. Tsunade tells him the surgery was a success, which overwhelms Guy with happiness. Moments later they are informed that Lee is missing from his room, which overwhelms Guy with worry. Tsunade realises that Lee's gone off to help the Sasuke Recovery Team. What's more, he accidentally took her bottle of sake rather than his medicine, which overwhelms Guy with fear that Lee may unleash the Drunken Fist on somebody. Lee later safely returns, and he and Guy immediately resume their training.

Viva Dojo Challenge! Youth is All About Passion! Edit

Main article: Viva Dojo Challenge! Youth is All About Passion! In the anime, Guy hears about a dōjō that Lee has opened. Guy prepares to challenge Lee in a fight by (poorly) disguising himself as a stranger, but is called away on a mission before he can issue the challenge. When he visits the dōjō afterwards, he runs into Nanafushi, a thief disguising himself as Lee, and quickly knocks him out.

Third Great Beast Arc Edit

Main article: Third Great Beast Arc In the anime, Guy goes on a mission with Yagura, a ninja of seemingly greater talent than Lee. During the mission, Guy discovers that it is not really Yagura, but actually one of the Three Ryūdōin Brothers who, along with his brothers, seeks vengeance on Guy for their father's death. They trap Guy and Lee in a castle and force them to fight each other through artificial, mute proxies. They discover this trick by communicating through Morse code, then break out by opening the first five gates, the stress of their high-speed attacks causing the constructs to break apart. Guy afterwards explains that he wasn't responsible for their father's death and that their father actually respected Guy, causing the brothers to apologise.

Konoha Plans Recapture Mission Edit

Main article: Konoha Plans Recapture Mission In the anime, Guy leads Konoha's available jōnin to stop a suspected invasion by Takigakure. They later discover that the Taki-nin are just having a training exercise.

Interlude Edit

In Naruto's Footsteps: The Friends' Paths Edit

Main article: In Naruto's Footsteps: The Friends' Paths In the anime, about two years after Naruto leaves Konoha to train with Jiraiya, another Chūnin Exam is held. Guy proctors the preliminary round between the first and second stage: participating teams must reach the Demon Desert within three days in order to qualify for the second stage. During this period, Team 10 is nearly killed by a giant scorpion while they search for food, so Guy gives them some. Once the preliminary round is over, Guy watches as the second stage formally begins.[48]

Part II Edit

Kazekage Rescue Mission Edit

Main article: Kazekage Rescue Mission

A Meeting With Destiny

Kisame attacks Team Guy.

Tsunade sends Team Guy to provide backup to Team 7 on their mission to rescue the Fifth Kazekage from Akatsuki. On their way to Sunagakure to meet Kakashi and the others, they are intercepted by Pakkun, who informs them that Team 7 has tracked the Kazekage to an Akatsuki base in the Land of Rivers. Team Guy is closer to the Land of Rivers than Team 7 is, so they change their course. Along the way they are attacked by Kisame Hoshigaki of Akatsuki, who Guy doesn't know. Kisame covers the surrounding desert with water and fends off Guy's students' attacks with his Samehada sword. Seeing Kisame's abilities, Guy gets the feeling that he's met Kisame before, irritating Kisame that he doesn't remember him.

Asakujaku

Guy defeats "Kisame".

Team Guy joins forces against Kisame and Guy is able to take Samehada. But Samehada does not allow Guy to wield it and Kisame, meanwhile, is able to trap Lee, Neji, and Tenten in water prisons so that he can fight Guy without interference. Kisame starts to overpower him, forcing Guy to open the first five gates and attack with Morning Peacock. Kisame is defeated, but when Team Guy examines his body afterwards they discover that it is only a doppelganger meant to stall them. They continue on to the Akatsuki base, but when they arrive find they are unable to enter. When Team 7 arrives shortly afterwards, Kakashi identifies it as being a Five-Seal Barrier, maintained by one seal over the entrance and four more somewhere in the surrounding landscape. Neji locates the other four with his Byakugan and Team Guy splits up to remove them.

Guy vs Clone

Guy fighting his clone.

Although they succeed in bringing down the barrier, thus granting Team 7 entrance, each member of Team Guy is confronted by a duplicate of themselves as soon as the barrier is gone. Soon after Guy and his clone started fighting, matching each others attacks. After being evenly matched with his clone, Lee communicated to Guy and the rest of the team who were in the same situation and proposed a solution: to become stronger than they had been when the copies had been created. Upon listening to Lee's words, Guy managed to get the upper hand in his fight and defeated his clone. Team Guy reunites with each other after winning their battles and depart to Team 7 location, arriving in time to cut off Deidara's escape attempt. Unable to get away, Deidara creates a Suicide Bombing Clone, which Kakashi saves them from by using Kamui.

Team Guy watches on as the Kazekage - dead because of Akatsuki - is revived by Chiyo in exchange for her own life. They attend her funeral in Suna a few days later before heading back to Konoha. Kakashi is too tired to walk due to his use of Kamui, necessitating that Guy carry him. Guy does so by giving Kakashi a piggyback ride and challenges their students to keep up with him; although Lee is fascinated by this training regimen, the others are deeply disturbed.

Sakura healing Hinata

Team Guy gets medical attention for Hinata.

Team Guy returns to Konoha after completing a mission. As they approach the village's outskirts they find a defeated Gamabunta, who informs them of the ongoing invasion of Pain. They rush back to the village and, upon arrival, find Hinata Hyūga badly injured from her fight with Pain. After getting her medical attention, Guy and Lee prepare to help Naruto in his fight against Pain, only to be informed that Naruto has already won. Team Guy joins in the celebration when Naruto returns to the village.

Power Edit

Main article: Power In the anime, Guy is part of a force sent to Hachō Village to help the Team 7 in their fight with Kabuto Yakushi. When they arrive, Guy and Lee fight the Nine-Tailed Naruto Clone, but find they must open the fifth gate in order to keep up with its speed and strength. After Kabuto retreats, the Konoha-nin investigate The Hole to try and discover what Kabuto was so interested in.

Paradise Life on a Boat Edit

Main article: Paradise Life on a Boat

The young man and the sea

Guy and the others set out.

While Konoha prepares for the approaching Fourth Shinobi World War, Guy is part of a team assigned to guard Naruto as he is sent into seclusion, a fact Naruto is not to be informed of. In the anime, as they make their way to their destination in the Land of Lightning, they take an indirect route so that Akatsuki cannot find Naruto. Before they can even leave the harbour in the Land of Fire, they are attacked by a Giant Marlin. They try to help a fisherman, Yūsuke, catch the marlin, but Naruto discovers that the marlin is compelled to attack because of a shuriken embedded in its head. When the shuriken is removed, the marlin leaves them alone and they're able to set sail.

Guy and the other bodyguards become seasick soon after starting their voyage, requiring that they briefly stop at Benisu Island until they recover. They next encounter a ghost ship, whose crew was killed by the Giant Corpse Crab. Guy and the others help the crew avenge their deaths by defeating the crab, thus releasing their souls. As they continue their trip, Guy is kidnapped by a giant bird that wants Guy to babysit its chicks. When Naruto and the others come to rescue him, the bird takes them to a volcano where the "ultimate summoning beast" lives. Guy and the others team up with the bird and other local animals to defeat the beast.

Continuing on, their food reserves start to run low and Guy and Naruto, in their desperation, eat a mushroom purchased from bandits. The mushroom makes them act violently, but they regain their senses with the help of Shima's cooking in time to stop the bandits from stealing their cargo. Towards the end of their trip, Kakashi comes looking for Guy. Guy gets it into his head that it is not actually Kakashi but rather an impostor and attacks him. When the others aboard start defending Kakashi, Guy concludes that they are also impostors and attacks them as well. Kakashi is able to convince Guy that he's the real Kakashi by recounting something from when they were younger. Kakashi then explains that he's answering a distress signal that Guy sent. Guy has no memory of doing that and suspects he sent it accidentally, so Kakashi returns to Konoha.

Fourth Shinobi World War: Countdown Edit

Main article: Fourth Shinobi World War: Countdown

Leaf Rock-Destroying Rise

Guy attacks his "inner-self".

Guy is battling seasickness by the time they reach the Island Turtle and Aoba Yamashiro looks after him until he recovers. Once he's better, he goes to the Falls of Truth, where Naruto previously faced and overcame his inner-self. Aoba dares Guy to do the same, suspecting that Guy's inner-self isn't human. As his inner-self emerges from the falls, it ridicules Guy for his old age and his loss of the youth he constantly preaches about. Guy demands that his inner-self reveal itself, but what emerges from the falls appears to be an insect. Assuming this is his inner-self and that it's been deformed by his loss of youthful spirit, he attacks it to mould it back into shape. Aoba informs Guy that it's not actually his inner-self, enabling him to recognise it for what it truly is: a puffer fish.

Guy vs Kisame

Guy's Daytime Tiger against Kisame's Great Shark Bullet.

Killer B emerges from the falls and informs them that it is not puffer fish, but rather Kisame Hoshigaki of Akatsuki, who is trying to escape with information about B and Naruto. After quickly incapacitating B and Aoba, Kisame attacks Guy and starts swimming to the ocean to send out the intel he's gathered. They're unable to move as quickly as Kisame can swim, so B flings Guy across the island in order to head Kisame off; this isn't enough, so Guy summons Ningame in mid-flight for him to use as a jumping off point to launch him the rest of the way. When he catches up, Kisame has already passed the intel to a shark, the identity of which he hides with one thousand more so that the shark can escape the island. Guy tries to destroy the sharks with Morning Peacock, but there are too many and he's forced to open the seventh gate. Kisame tries to stop Guy with his Great Shark Bullet Technique, which Guy counters with Daytime Tiger.

Kisame committing suicide

Kisame, in death, finally gets Guy to remember him.

The Daytime Tiger is unimpeded by the Great Shark Bullet and directly connects with Kisame, creating a giant aftershock that not only defeats him but also destroys the remaining sharks. As Guy collects the intel, Kisame states his surprise that Guy could withhold a jutsu as powerful as the Daytime Tiger until their third encounter. Since Guy doesn't remember their previous two encounters, Kisame attempts to keep fighting, prompting Guy to knock him out. He takes Kisame back to the others so that Aoba can interrogate him. Rather than be used to betray his allies, Kisame breaks free of his confinements through sheer will, traps himself in a water prison so that Guy and the others can't stop him, and summons sharks to eat him alive. Guy deeply respects how and why Kisame chose to die, so vows to remember him for the rest of his life.

They afterwards examine the intel that Kisame was trying to send, which turns out to be booby-trapped: they are each caught in a water prison and are trapped alongside a shark. Guy finally succumbs to the rigors of his earlier use of the Eight Gates and can't fight off his shark, requiring that the others rescue him. Another shark, meanwhile, is able to escape with Kisame's intel.

Fourth Shinobi World War: Confrontation Edit

Main article: Fourth Shinobi World War: Confrontation

Sakura healing Guy

Sakura heals Guy.

When the Fourth Shinobi World War finally starts, Guy is reassigned to the Third Division of the Allied Shinobi Forces; his body is still suffering from using the Eight Gates, which Sakura Haruno tries to heal. Guy recovers by the time that the Third Division is called to help the Surprise Attack Division, assisting Kakashi, Sakura, and Lee with holding off the reincarnated Gari, Pakura, Haku, and Zabuza Momochi. Zabuza covers the area in mist to hide his and the others' movements, placing the Third Division on the defensive. As the battle commences, Guy and Lee are able to intercept Haku's attack on an ally. When casualties start mounting, reminds those nearby that deaths are inevitable and that they can't let that destroy their resolve.

Reinforcements Arrive

Naruto helps Guy and the others.

After Kakashi defeats Zabuza, the mist disperses and the remaining swordsmen seemingly retreat. The next day, in the anime, Guy teams up with Kakashi to keep Jinpachi Munashi and Kushimaru Kuriarare busy until the Sealing Team can deal with them. They're eventually able to reduce the number of reincarnated ninja to three, at which point part of the White Zetsu Army arrives to fight the Third Division. One of Naruto's shadow clones arrives shortly afterwards, helping defeat the Zetsus. In the anime, the Third Division is attacked by one additional reincarnated ninja, Chen. A taijutsu expert like Guy, Chen is able to gain the advantage because his immortal body doesn't tire out, unlike Guy's. Lee saves Guy and, by talking with Chen and fighting him, is able to return his soul to the Pure Land.[49]

Fourth Shinobi World War: Climax Edit

Main article: Fourth Shinobi World War: Climax

Geki — Konoha Kongōriki Senpū

Guy and Kakashi save Naruto.

Guy and Kakashi eventually leave the Third Division to join the original Naruto and Killer B in their fight with Tobi, arriving in time to stop Tobi from capturing Naruto. Guy frees Naruto from the coral that's restraining him and they all attack the reincarnated jinchūriki that Tobi is using as his Six Paths of Pain. Tobi has two of the jinchūriki enter Tailed Beast Mode, following which the Four-Tails attempts to swallow Naruto. Guy and Kakashi want to help him, but must deal with the others first: while Kakashi deals with the jinchūriki, Guy repels the Six-Tails' Wisdom Wolf Decay using Morning Peacock. Naruto, meanwhile, is able to escape the Four-Tails and release it from Tobi's control.

Koyubi Kōgeki

Guy attacks the Demonic Statue.

Tobi forces the remaining jinchūriki to also enter Tailed Beast Modes, expecting to destroy Guy and the others before they can release another of the tailed beasts. As five Tailed Beast Balls bear down on them, Guy considers opening all Eight Gates. It ends up not being necessary as Naruto, by entering his own Tailed Beast Mode, deflects their attacks and subsequently frees them from Tobi. Tobi is forced to recall the tailed beasts into the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path, which he uses against Naruto, B, Kakashi, and Guy. Fighting continues into the night, with neither side emerging victorious. When a light descends on the reincarnated jinchūriki, a sign that the Impure World Reincarnation has been cancelled, Tobi takes drastic action and prematurely initiates the Ten-Tails' revival. When they realise what Tobi is doing, Guy and the others focus on destroying the Demonic Statue before it can complete its metamorphosis into the Ten-Tails.

Tobi defends the Demonic Statue from all of their attacks and, as ever, is himself seemingly impervious to damage, with everything passing through him. After the exchange, Kakashi notices some slight damage to Tobi's mask, which he has a theory about. To test this, he has Guy and Naruto attack Tobi: Guy allows Tobi to absorb the Sōshūga he's been using, creating an opening for Naruto to attack with Rasengan. Tobi fazes through this, but Kakashi uses his Kamui on the Rasengan, causing Tobi to take damage. This confirms Kakashi's theory that Tobi is also using Kamui and must therefore have the companion Sharingan to Kakashi's. Tobi confirms this, troubling both Kakashi and Guy because of what this may mean. Nevertheless, this information gives them a way of attacking Tobi, though Kakashi is so distracted in thought that he doesn't join in until Guy brings him back to his senses. Their combined efforts succeed in destroying Tobi's mask. When they see his face, Guy and Kakashi recognise Tobi as Obito Uchiha.

Guy attack Madara

Guy attacks Madara.

Guy and, in particular, Kakashi are surprised that Tobi is Obito. Naruto doesn't know who Obito is, so Guy explains their history with him. Naruto notes that the past doesn't change the fact that Obito is now their enemy, which Guy agrees with and uses this to try to help Kakashi recover from the shock of seeing Obito. Obito is soon joined by a reincarnated Madara Uchiha, who decides to take Naruto's Nine-Tails and Killer B's Eight-Tails before the Ten-Tails is revived. Guy helps defend them - entrusting Obito to Kakashi - but Madara is too formidable and Guy soon becomes tired. Madara tells them that fighting against him is futile, which Naruto refuses to believe. Guy is moved by Naruto's confidence and attacks Madara with Daytime Tiger, propelling him away and leaving Guy no longer able to move. Naruto and the others team up to try and destroy the Demonic Statue, but they fail and the Ten-Tails is revived.

B carries Guy to Naruto, who takes him into his Tailed Beast Mode to keep him safe while his chakra replenishes. Battle with the Ten-Tails interrupts the process before Guy is fully restored, requiring that Kakashi support him. The Ten-Tails attacks again, but they are saved by the arrival of the rest of the Allied Shinobi Forces; Shizune heals Guy's injuries. When the Alliance restrains the Ten-Tails, Guy and Lee open the fifth gate in order to join the attack against it, but the Ten-Tails breaks free at the last moment and repels them. When Neji is killed in the following battle, Lee mourns for him; Guy comforts him by telling him that Neji will live on so long as they continue to fight for the cause that he gave his life for. Naruto gives them version 1-like cloaks to protect them and strengthen their attacks, which they and the rest of the Alliance use to remove the Ten-Tails from Obito and Madara's control.

Birth of the Ten-Tails' Jinchūriki Edit

Main article: Birth of the Ten-Tails' Jinchūriki Guy does what he can to contribute to the battle, but the prolonged fighting has left him exhausted and eventually Lee must help him walk. Following Obito's defeat, they start slowly heading towards where the rest of the Alliance has engaged in another battle. Along the way they notice the Fifth Kazekage taking Naruto and Sakura Haruno in the opposite direction, towards where Obito was left in Kakashi's custody. Sensing something is wrong, Guy instructs Lee to head back, against Tenten's objections. They get back in time for Guy to save Kakashi from a Truth-Seeking Ball fired by somebody Guy doesn't recognise: Madara Uchiha. Guy is surprised to learn that it's Madara's, whose appearance has changed now that he is the jinchūriki of the Ten-Tails.

Guy Opening 7th Gate

Guy prepares to fight against Madara.

Kakashi and the others explain that Madara is now impervious to all attacks except for senjutsu and taijutsu. Although the reincarnated Fourth Hokage is technically able to use senjutsu, he can't do so in his current state. Guy therefore decides it's his responsibility to fight Madara and opens the seventh gate. He attacks with Daytime Tiger, but Madara survives and Guy, weakened afterwards, must be saved from one of Madara's Truth-Seeking Balls by Lee. With Guy's attack having failed, Kakashi decides that they stand no hope against Madara. Guy corrects him: he still has the Eight Gates Released Formation. Kakashi and the Fourth try to convince him not to, but Lee tearfully understands Guy's reasons. As he punctures his heart to open the eighth gate, Guy thinks about his father and reflects that his comrades are precious enough to him to give his life protecting them.

Guy Vs Madara

Guy attacks Madara.

Guy attacks Madara with Evening Elephant, but the pain he experiences forces him to stop after only the first step. When Madara returns, eager to see what Guy can do, Guy starts over, sequentially delivering the first four steps of the Evening Elephant to Madara. Kakashi and the others, aware that Guy has a time limit, team up to eliminate some of the Truth-Seeking Balls that Madara is using to defend himself with. This allows Guy to hit Madara with the Evening Elephant's fifth step directly. Madara survives and, though he's winded, he invites Guy to attack him again. Guy tries additional Evening Elephants that do gradually damage Madara but, with his life about to expire, Guy realises he will need to use Night Guy if he hopes to end things. He charges at Madara and kicks him in the side, obliterating part of Madara's torso and shattering the bones in Guy's right leg.

Guy succumbs to the use of all Eight Gates and passes out; his body starts roasting from the inside and his damaged leg begins to crumble into ashes. Madara's body regenerates from the damage it received and he, as thanks to Guy for being such a great opponent, fires a Truth-Seeking Ball at Guy to put him out of his misery. Naruto repels the Truth-Seeking Ball and uses his new Yin–Yang Release to stabilise Guy's life-force. After attacking Madara, Naruto takes Guy to Lee and entrusts him to his care, assuring him that Guy will live.

Kaguya Ōtsutsuki Strikes Edit

Main article: Kaguya Ōtsutsuki Strikes

Guy Recovering

Guy coming to terms with his injury.

Despite Naruto's attempt to stop him, Madara is able to cast Infinite Tsukuyomi, trapping the still-unconscious Guy and the rest of the world in a dream. Naruto and Sasuke Uchiha are eventually able to release the Infinite Tsukuyomi, thus freeing the world and ending the war. Because of the damage done to his leg in his final attack against Madara, Guy is confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life.

Blank Period Edit

Kakashi Hiden: Lightning in the Icy Sky Edit

Main article: Kakashi Hiden: Lightning in the Icy Sky A year after the end of the war, Konoha is hired to provide security for the maiden voyage of the Tobishachimaru. Guy, having always wanted to fly, has Lee sneak him aboard, threatening to stop being his teacher if Lee refuses. When Kakashi catches him, Guy claims to have no interest in flying and that he merely wants to demonstrate that he can continue to be a ninja despite his leg injury. Kakashi doesn't believe him, but lets him stay and finds a place for them to ride out the trip as stowaways. During the voyage, the Tobishachimaru is hijacked by the Ryūha Armament Alliance, who demand that Konoha release their leader from the Blood Prison; they will start killing hostages if Konoha takes too long and will blow up the Tobishachimaru if their demands aren't met.

While Kakashi confronts the hijackers to try and rescue the hostages, Guy assists Kakashi's ninken with locating the explosive tags spread around the Tobishachimaru. Once all the explosive tags are dealt with, Guy also confronts the hijackers, drawing Rahyō into battle. Even though his leg is in a cast, Guy remains as fast as ever, allowing him to evade Rahyō's ice-augmented physical attacks. He is even able to deliver some successful kicks, though has difficulty disguising the pain it causes him. He brings out his Sōshūga in order to engage Rahyō, but watching Sōshūga's rapid swinging triggers his motion-sickness. Rather than be debilitated by it, Guy turns it into a fighting style he calls Seasickness Fist. While Rahyō struggles to hit Guy, Kakashi is meanwhile able to free himself from his restraints and fights Kahyō. Kahyō creates a large hole in the Tobishachimaru that starts sucking out the hostages. Kakashi catches Guy before he's sucked out too, but cannot maintain his hold on the ship's hull. Despite Guy's plea for Kakashi to save himself, he loses his grip and they start falling.

As they fall through the air towards the ground far below, Guy makes eye contact with Kakashi and together they accept the fact that they're about to die. They and the hostages are saved by Sai, who takes Guy and the hostages to safety while Kakashi returns back to the Tobishachimaru. Guy returns to Konoha and is summoned before Tsunade. He tries to come up with a plausible reason for why he was aboard the Tobishachimaru, but she doesn't believe him. She's forced to take a call from the Third Tsuchikage before she can punish him, so she tells Guy to sketch the faces of the hijackers. A few months later, after Kakashi has become the Sixth Hokage, Guy is training with Lee when he sees Kakashi reading a letter from Kahyō. Guy pretends disgust by their relationship, but states he won't let it interfere with his duties as Kakashi's adviser.

Team Guy Wedding

Team Guy attending Naruto and Hinata's wedding.

Guy is invited to Naruto's marriage to Hinata Hyūga. He gets up early one morning to do laps around Konoha until he can think of what present to get them. He invites Lee to join him, but Lee has just done the exact same thing and failed to come up with anything to get for Naruto. Guy suggests that Lee try coming up with a gift for Hinata instead, while he thinks of a gift for Naruto. Lee thinks about Hinata's post-wedding life of childcare and housework. Guy thinks of Naruto's post-wedding life of home maintenance and carrying groceries. Both simultaneously conclude they should buy dumbbells to prepare Naruto and Hinata for their lives ahead. Completely satisfied with this reasoning, Lee and Guy embrace in a long, tearful hug.

On the day of the ceremony, Tenten instructs Lee and Guy about how they should behave at weddings. Guy later congratulates Naruto at the wedding with a thumbs up.[50]

New Era Edit

While no longer able to continue active duty as a ninja but still wanting to help the new generation grow, Guy became a teacher at the Academy,[23] giving regular lectures and instructing students in taijutsu.

Konoha Shinden: Steam Ninja Scrolls Edit

Main articles: Konoha Shinden (novel) and Konoha Shinden (anime) NOTE: In the anime, the events of this arc occur after the Mitsuki's Disappearance Arc. On the day of the Five Kage Summit in Konoha, Kakashi and Guy met up, before departing from the village with their escort Mirai Sarutobi. Later, the group arrived in the Land of Hot Water. There, they found annual festival/competition where a town was split between two beliefs on its origins; some believing that it was a cat spirit and others believed it to be a dog spirit. While initially enjoying the festival, they found Kiba Inuzuka and his girlfriend Tamaki, a cat breeder having begun to join in the feud on different sides do to their respective animal expertise. As their couple's argument began to make the town grow into a frenzy, Mirai stopped the chaos by producing a genjutsu of Cat-Dog spirit, telling the people to stop the feuding. When Guy believed the genjutsu to be a demon and attacked it, he accidentally knocked down the main wall that split the town, convincing the villagers that it was a sign for them to truly come together.

During a stop an inn, they met a young orphan named Tatsumi, who despite having no money, was determined to visit all the hot springs in the land in memory of her late mother. At Mirai's request, it was agreed that the little girl can join them on their own trip. Later during the trip, Tatsumi and Mirai snuck off in the hopes of a nearby hot spring rumoured to let people talk with loved ones from the past. Kakashi and Guy soon found them, learning that the rumoured hot spring was a ruse conceived by remnants of the near-forgotten Jashin cult to restore their former glory and power. Guy, along with Kakashi and Mirai, swiftly defeated the fanatics. Later, it was revealed that Kakashi and Guy's vacation was in fact a cover for their working with the Land of Hot Water to uncover the truth behind the missing girls.

Versus Momoshiki Arc Edit

Main articles: Boruto: Naruto the Movie and Versus Momoshiki Arc Guy watches the genin battle it out in the final round of the Chūnin Exams in Konoha alongside Kakashi and Iruka Umino.

In the anime, as Metal Lee continued to struggle with his anxiety of took much attention on him, Guy offered to let the youth listen to his lecture at the Academy. During which, Guy voiced the importance of facing one's problems if they hope to get past them, as he had to deal with his damaged leg. Demonstrating his point, Guy decided to have a sparring match against Metal and Iwabee in a two-on-one handicap. Guy decisively won, albeit it was even easier from Metal not focusing properly from so many people watch. Later, Lee decided to challenge his son to a match with many spectators, telling Metal that he had to win if he wants to learn the Eight Gates. During the match, Guy watch in pride as Metal began understanding the words he and Lee told him as he began using his anxiety to fuel his performance and even momentarily access the first gate to win the challenge. The three then tearfully hugged in joy at the proud moment, much to the spectators' discomfort.

Quotes Edit

  • (To Lee) "Yes!! This is what youth is all about!"[51]
  • (To Lee) "For those who don't believe in themselves… hard work is worthless!! …You are very much like me, Lee. I used to be a loser too. But these days I can even win against the elite genius Kakashi. "I want to prove that even without ninjutsu and genjutsu I can become a great ninja" that's your nindō right? That's a great goal, it's worth working hard for!"[52]
  • (To Kakashi) "What would you know about that boy? That kid has a precious thing he would give up his life to prove. So I wanted to turn him into a man that could accomplish it… That is all…"[53]
  • (To Lee) "You worked hard Lee, there's no doubt in my mind the surgery will be a success. You have the power to shape your own destiny. And on the one-in-one thousand, no, one in a million chance something to happen to go wrong, I will die right along with you. Since the day I met you, my nindō has been to train you to become the most splendid ninja possible. That's a promise!"[54]
  • (About Kisame Hoshigaki) "Water Release ninjutsu… and that huge sword! You must be… …Someone I've met before!"[55]
  • (About Kisame) "He was a worthy opponent! A man who lived and died like a real shinobi! Kisame Hoshigaki! I'll remember that name for the rest of my life!"[56]
  • (To Kakashi) "The springtime of youth has yet to fade away! Don't lose hope! We may not always be able to accomplish all the things we wish for… but if we only do the things we want to do, we'll never start… just like my challenges to you. This is by no means just a show of bravery or courage. The green days of Konoha are over. The time has come to become the red beast."[57]
  • (To Madara) "…That may be true… but they don't just rot and die!! They will become nourishment for the new, fresh leaves! The time when a new spring comes and the fresh leaves bud… is the peak of youth!! It's the time to burn, deep crimson!!!"[58]
