Uchiha Obito executes Mokuton: Sashiki no Jutsu (Wood Release: Cutting Technique) using the Ten-Tailed Beast, and rains down massive wooden spikes onto the Konoha ninja. The Hyugas are fighting hard to defend against the barrage of deadly projectiles, but the Ten-Tails pinpoints an attack towards a fallen Naruto. It is too fast for anyone to catch with their barrier techniques, so Hinata jumps in front of Naruto to use her body as a shield. However, someone else intercepts to take the fatal blows.
Naruto stares in disbelief over the realization that the genius of the Hyuga clan gave up his life to save him. With his final breaths, Neji speaks to Naruto.
"Hinata-sama is... willing to die for you, Naruto...
So keep in mind... that your life... is not your own... anymore
Now, it also... includes... mine."
