[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!!?
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!
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.
