Naruto Manga 648: "Less Than 15 Minutes"
Naruto and Sasuke are shown standing together in Bijuu Sage Mode and Complete Susanoo respectively.
Naruto: "I won't let you deal with this alone... Sasuke!"
Sasuke: "Hmph, this is what I wanted to hear!"
Editor's text: "THE TWO, GO IN FRONT FULL WITH CONFIDENCE!"
Minato: (Thinking) "Naruto... you became perfect shinobi... just I imagined you to be..." (Tear is shown on his serious face)
Sakura: (Thinking) "Naruto... thank you... once again..."
Hinata: (Thinking) "Naruto-kun... You've been an example for me for all these years... And yet, I can't do anything... I can just rely on you and put all my hope in you... Because I know that you can do it, now go and save the world!" (Smile, combined with a tear appear on her face)
The Five Kage land nearby Tobirama, Hiruzen, Minato and Juugo.
Gaara: "Naruto... You're not overdoing it a bit, aren't you?"
Tsunade: "Kazekage, this is Naruto we're talking about, don't worry!"
Naruto: "Gaara, Granny! It took you too long, but I'm glad you're here! I guess that this should be handy..."
Naruto uses Chakra Arms to touch the Gokage, giving them Kurama Chakra Cloak.
Ay: "Huh, is this...?"
Onoki: "It's the Kyubi's power!"
Naruto:"His name is Kurama!"
Tsunade: "I see... So you two are friends now."
Kurama is shown in Naruto's mind.
Kurama: "Heh, that's enough, Naruto! Remember, the tree nearly killed us, we don't have much time before it blooms. And if this happens... then it's all over!"
Naruto: "Don't worry... I don't know how much time is left until it blooms, but I'll definitely stop it before this happens!"
Kurama: "Let's go then... Show them our true power, Naruto!"
Naruto: "Sasuke, we gotta get to work. Kurama just told me that we don't have much time!"
Sasuke: "Right... Amaterasu!"
Sasuke uses the black flames to burn the roots of the God Tree, but he fails, as the tree absorbs the chakra of the Ninjutsu.
Ay: "Heh, the Uchiha brat's really fighting on our side... Not that I'm going to forgive him for my hand anyway!"
Hiruzen: "Sasuke, don't use Ninjutsu against this thing. We can stop it only by physical force, or Senjutsu. Any other attempts will be unsuccessful!"
Minato: "Ay... Did you heard Lord Third? We have to stop him by physical strenght, are you ready?"
Ay: "Minato... Even you are here! Surprises just don't stop... Ready when you are!"
Minato: "Heh, too bad that we won't have our fight as a Kage vs Kage though..." (Smiles)
Obito: "You just don't seem to understand... In what position you are!"
The God Tree suddenly sends another set of roots at the Alliance's direction.
Naruto: "Damn... Sasuke?"
Sasuke: "I'm on it!"
Sasuke slices through some roots with his Susanoo, as Naruto is shown preparing large Bijuu Dama, reinforced with Sage Art.
Minato: "Naruto, I think that my help will be useful."
Minato lands near Naruto in BM, as he adds power to Naruto's Senpo: Bijuu Dama.
Naruto: "Thanks dad, this will help a lot!"
Minato: "Heh, you should thank Kurama instead."
Naruto and Minato shoot the Bijuu Dama, wiping out many of the tree's roots.
Sakura: "Master Tsunade! Shikamaru is heavily wounded, his chakra level is very low!"
Tsunade: "Sakura, you're my best student... I'm proud of you, I know that you can save him, until I stop this thing from killing anymore people!"
Karin: "Step aside pink head, I'll handle this."
Karin and Suigetsu arrive near Shikamaru, Sakura and the others, as Karin kneels before Shikamaru.
Karin: "Come on man, bite my hand, though I don't want any other than Sasuke to do it..."
Suigetsu: "Haha, you admitted again that you like Sasuke!"
Karin: "Shut up Suigetsu, you moron! You were the one who told me that healing the Alliance comes in first place, bastard!"
Shikamaru is shown biting Karin's hand, as he starts to regenerate his chakra similar to Tsunade when Karin was healing her.
Shikamaru is shown standing slowly, as he looks fully recovered.
Shikamaru: "Thank you, descendant of the Uzumaki clan..."
Karin: "Huh, that's my job after all..."
Sakura: (Thinking) "She's... a descendant of the Uzumaki clan?" (Looks with a surprised expression)
Choji: "Shikamaru, I'm glad that you're okay!"
Tsunade: "Good job... Now we should take care of our part, let's go, Kages!"
Mei: "Here we go!"
Hiruzen: "The boys took care of the bigger part, let's take care of the remaining ones!"
Tobirama: "Let's go, Saru!"
The Five Kage and the remainder of the Edo Hokages are shown destroying the other roots of the Shinju, as Madara and Hashirama are shown clashing.
Madara: "Tsk, these pests are just getting in the way of my plan..."
Hashirama: "Tsunade and the other Kages arrived, we'll find a way to stop your selfish dream from coming true!"
Madara: "Hashirama... Our battle is over now. I'm going to stop Obito and take his place... which was originally mine!"
Hashirama: "Even you can't..."
Madara: "Don't underestimate me! Now I have your power, remember? I have some tricks to offer... I'm itching to use my trump card!"
Hashirama: "Trump card...?"
Madara: "Go and help the Kages in their pathetic attempts to cut down the Shinju... While I'm taking down Obito!"
Obito: "I knew that you were going to betray me anyway some day... And you must know that I was the one using you, the whole time!"
Madara lands in his Complete Susanoo shroud in front of Naruto, Minato and Sasuke, staring at Obito.
Madara: "It's time for me to regain the leadership, Obito!"
Hashirama's Sage Mode markings appear around Madara's Rinnegan eyes, as he finally reveals his trump card, shown in a close up panel!
Minato: "Looks like Madara will try to take down Obito himself..."
Sasuke: "We can't think of him as an ally... He just wants to take the leadership in order to activate the Infinite Tsukuyomi himself. It's the perfect chance for me to avenge the Uchiha clan!"
Naruto: "I don't know about dad and Sasuke, but... Madara, you should know that I'm going to get rid of both of you in less than 15 minutes!"
Naruto is shown in the last panel with a serious look at Madara.
