Naruto x UT is the eighth Naruto OVA. Approximately 200,000 copies of this OVA were distributed by Uniqlo to promote a line of Naruto-themed shirts designed by Masashi Kishimoto in conjunction with Studio Pierrot.
Sakura cries, holding a seemingly dead Naruto, who has slash marks in his chest, in her arms, with Kakashi beside her. A recap is shown of some of their moments together as Team 7: The announcement of the teams, Sasuke beating Naruto in the kunai-throwing challenge, the teams first mission (find the lost pet Tora) and the Tree Climbing Practice. Then it laps into some of Naruto and Sasuke's fights: the Chūnin Exams; Naruto fighting Kiba Inuzuka and Neji Hyūga, Sasuke fighting Yoroi Akadō, Naruto's fight with Gaara and Shukaku, Sasuke fighting Orochimaru in the Forest of Death, Team 7's encounter with Zabuza Momochi and Haku, Sasuke's first encounter with his brother Itachi Uchiha, Sasuke being captured by the Sound Four, Sasuke and Naruto's first fight with Chidori and Rasengan and their battle at the Valley of the End. They both face each other in battle again, Naruto in Sage Mode using Chakra Blades and Sasuke using his Sword of Kusanagi. They finish with a Rasengan and Chidori. Following that, scenes of Naruto fighting Nagato and Sasuke fighting Itachi are shown. After the flashback, Naruto wakes up, comforting the crying Sakura, who joyfully embraces him. Meanwhile, Kabuto and Tobi gaze at the aftermath of the battle, then they walk away. A wounded Sasuke smirks and shows his Sharingan, which changes into Itachi's Mangekyō Sharingan, and then into Sasuke's own, following the cry of an infant.
- Midnight Orchestra, the sixteenth ending song of the Naruto: Shippūden anime, is used in this OVA.
- When Naruto is running towards Sasuke, his Rasengan is shown in his left hand as opposed to his right.
