"The Third Tail…!!" (三本目…!!, Sanbonme…!!) is chapter 292 of the original Naruto manga.
Team 7 tries to come to grips with the power of Naruto's three-tailed form. Naruto roars, flinging Kabuto back and destroying the Tenchi Bridge. While Naruto goes after Orochimaru, Sakura falls and hits her head, knocking her unconscious. Sai does not save her, instead following Naruto, forcing Yamato to stop her from falling into the ravine. As Naruto attacks him, Orochimaru remarks that he does not compare to Sasuke, causing a fourth tail to start to appear.
