Naruto vs. Konohamaru vs. Rock Lee!! (ナルト対木の葉対ロック·リー！ Naruto tsui Konohamaru tsui Rokku · Ri^!) is Chapter 5.5 of the manga.
Rock Lee informs Naruto Uzumaki and Konohamaru Sarutobi about the Chūnin Exam. Lee claims that he is already a Chūnin, unlike Naruto, and that he has breezily passed through the Exam without a single defeat, in which they found skeptical. Lee says that he will be one of the administrators during the test, so he decided to help them out now while he can.
Naruto performs his Sexy Sakura Jutsu, which portrayed a much bustier Sakura Haruno. Sakura happens to see this and beats all three of them, explaining that she has come to check up on them. Konohamaru points out that last time she was excited by the Seduction - Boys Together No Jutsu, and she denies it. Konohamaru performs the said jutsu and depicts Might Guy and Lee together, much to the others' disgust.
Sakura prompts that they do some constructive training, and Lee notices Konohamaru's hesitation, so he suggest that they do some combat sparring practice. Lee tells them to retrieve the applications forms he possessed from him before nightfall, and if they fail that, they will not be able to enter the Exam.
Later, Lee relays to Sakura of how Guy has taught him the importance in believing in his own strength, and because of that, he was able to become a chūnin. Thus, Lee wishes to help his juniors.
In the meantime, Lee confronts Konohamaru with his Rasenken yet again. It is explained that Lee released the limiter on his body so his eyebrows can grow long and then be spun so they would act like blades. Lee lands a hit on Konohamaru with his long eyebrows, and the latter is disheartened and admits that he has no self-confidence in joining the Exam, since it is very difficult and intense.
Lee lectures him that the people who don't believe in themselves will not get any value from their effort. He says that the Exam was incredibly painful, but it was worth it since he became a chūnin. Lee tells Konohamaru to believe in himself. With his confidence restored, Konohamaru is determined to take an application with his new Harem Jutsu. The jutsu results to a mass of seductive Might Guys. Lee is overwhelmed, and Konohamaru successfully takes an application.
Later, Guy greets Lee, and the latter runs away. Naruto questions what is wrong with him while Konohamaru is excited for the Exam.
