Points of Interest
- Saukra compares the way Sai and Sasuke talks. Sasuke doesn't use honorifics when talking to anyone. In Japanese culture, this is seen as extremely rude.

- This episode is one of the first times in the anime that Kakashi's ANBU tattoo is shown.
- Jiraiay reveals in this episode that when he was younger and tried peaking in the hot springs that Tsunade was in. She beat him nearly to death.
- The full part of the conversation about Naruto's Nine-Tail's Chakra Cloak is later revealed in Naruto Shippuden - Episode 40.
- Sasuke only appears this episode in a photograph in Naruto's house.
HIdden Leaf Art Appreciation Omake:
