"The Mission Given…!!" (下された任務…!!, Kudasareta Ninmu…!!, Viz: The Imparted Mission…!!) is chapter 117 of the original Naruto manga.


Kakashi tasks Sakura to pursue Sasuke and stop him from engaging the Three Sand Siblings. He summons Pakkun to guide her and has them wake up Naruto and Shikamaru (the latter of whom is only pretending to be asleep) before sending them on their way amidst an ongoing battle between Konoha and Oto. The Third Hokage prepares for battle. He attacks and Orochimaru summons three coffins. The Third attempts to stop them, but two of the coffins successfully open.
