[Hatake Ken, 14 year-old]
Ken: He… uses Earth Release. He’s very strong and fast… No physical weakness. Then, I…
Boy: Hey! When will you stop dodging? You have nothing to amuse me, do you? Such a loser.
Ken: Don’t underestimate your rival. I’m just waiting for you to do the hard work for me.
Boy: Work for you?!
Let me show you my poison techniques, which are my specialty.
Boy: P…poison?!! (What’s he going to do!?)
Ken: Don’t look around!
Boy: (He used that nylon thread to besiege me?!)
– Eh? What’s he doing?
– Is he using poison?
Boy: W…what the hell are you trying to do!!?
Ken: Hey! Be careful! Don’t get hurt by the nylon thread, whenever the poison gets to your heart…I’m afraid you won’t be saved in time.
Ken: C’mon! Let’s continue our game!
Boy: Don’t be overconfident!
Ken: Dang it!
Jezz! That was a close call!!
Boy: Poor fool! You just dug your own grave. I’ll beat you with your own poison.
Ken: You did great, I didn’t expect you could escape so quickly. I almost got you.
Boy: The only skill you have is Taijutsu?
(It’s hard to move like before because I have to beware of the threads. Damn it! It distracts me!)
Boy: Whatever! I’m gonna cut this shit!
Ken: Hey! Hold on, don’t do that. Time-out.
Why? Is it your last chance to survive?
Ken: Ok. Go ahead!
Boy: (W…what… don’t tell that if the nylon is being cut, the poison will go in the air?)
Ken: Hurry up!
(Wait! Shall I cut it? It’s difficult to fight If I have to cover my nose all the time… But if I don’t cut it, it’s also hard to move.)
Ken: Caught you.
Because you were only concerned about my thread… Well, it was just a high flexible nylon thread… nothing poisonous. (Importantly, I’m not a poison expert though.)
– The winner is Hatake Ken!!
Kakashi: Haha! The cunning boy.
Mina: Excellent, Ken-chan!
Kurenai: He’s very smart.
Naruto: Way to go! Baka! Haha!!
Boruto: Ken-nii chan is very cool!
Ken: You saw it, dad? I won! I did great, right!?
Kakashi: More than great!
Kakashi: The elders are really impressed. You will pass the chunin exam for sure.
Ken: Wait a sec, dad! I only used one taijutsu and didn’t even use ninjutsu. His skills are better than me. How come I pass the exam!?
Kakashi: Well, it’s true that win or lose the match isn’t a factor to pass the exam. However, you were cleverer and more ingenious than him. And that’s enough to let you pass the chunin exam.
Ken: No, I don’t need it. Because of things like this people judged me because of my father’s connection. And you still let me pass the chunin exam!? C’mon!
Kakashi: You usually don’t care about anyone’s words, do you? You don’t want to pass the test because you don’t want to have more responsibilities, right?
Kakashi: However, a chunin is a chunin. I’d rather tell your mother to prepare the celebration dinner tonight. Haha!
Ken: Didn’t you hear me when I said I refused?
Tsukune: Awesome! Ken.
