I think I watched the wrong fight, because didn't the curse mark recede after stabbing Naruto in the heart? If I'm wrong then this is embarrassing.
Edit: just reread the whole fight, there was never a straight on fight with level 1 Curse Seal Sasuke and Jinchuriki mode Naruto
@SMXLR8: @waybig1010101: Well this fight had a bit of bs in it as well so it's not 100% clear cut. Remember that Naruto wasn't going all out for most of the fight. He was going for K.O. while Sasuke was going for the kill and did so twice giving Naruto quite a bit of damage. Plus, he had been chasing the sound 4 for miles and fighting them as well as Kimimaro while Sasuke was starting fresh. Also, Naruto kinda missed with his Rasengan during that final attack.
So there are a couple of X factors here.
@waybig1010101: I see what your saying
And that particular bit may not have been pis exactly. At that point, he needed to go completely berserk to get past 1 tail. However, he may not have been able to get there with how the situation was (nobody was dead and he didn't want to kill Sasuke). If the fight had lasted longer, he may have been able to do so. However, the 1 tail cloak was already eating up his body and he had about reached his limit by the end. He may not have been able to handle more than that. It may have even killed him before he could down Sasuke.
