Rock Lee vs. Might Guy (ロックリーは対は、ガイマイト Rokku Ri^ tsui Maito Gai) is Chapter 8 of the manga.
Neji Hyuga and Tenten are depicted punishing enemy ninja. Rock Lee and Might Guy soon arrive and aid them. Lee tells of his inability to use ninjutsu and goal to become a great ninja in order to make Guy proud. Tenten, disinterested in this routine, reminds them of their opponents.
However, Naruto Uzumaki suddenly makes his appearance and easily defeats the opponents with a phenomenal technique, that impresses Kakashi Hatake and leaves Lee awe-struck. Naruto then says that it is only natural for students to surpass their masters.
Later, Guy urges them to do 500 laps around the village of Konoha. Recalling what Naruto has said, Lee desires to surpass Guy and suggests that they do 500 million laps instead.
Afterwards, both Lee and Guy are completely exhausted. Naruto, Sakura Haruno, Sai and Kakashi come, and Sakura uses her medical healing ninjutsu to relieve the strain of overexertion on Lee's and Guy's bodies. Tenten asks Lee why he has pushed himself so hard, and Lee remembers how Guy has supported him so much. He then overhears Kakashi speaking to Guy, saying how Naruto surpassing him makes him truly happy. Lee is ashamed of himself and declares that he can surpass Guy. Lee challenges Guy to a duel, and Guy accepts it.
In the forest, Tenten announces the initiation of the duel. Both Lee and Guy lunge forward, using "Konoha Senpū" which results to both of them feeling pain. Lee proclaims about his development of a new jutsu "Konoha Breeze", which consists of him blowing his breath against Guy's face. Naruto and Tenten express their disgust while Sai and Neji keep their composure.
Lee's spinning kicks then creates a whirlwind which he names "Konoha Perverted Wind" as the strong gusts of wind lift up Sakura's skirt. Naruto is fascinated by it, which causes both Naruto and Lee to be punched by Sakura.
Lee refuses to give up and shows a bag of chips called the "Konoha Snack Takoyaki Flavor". Neji uses his Byakugan and Kakashi uses his Sharingan to study the the flavor and texture of the food, much to Tenten's disbelief.
Guy then unleashes the Sixth Gate of View out of his Eight Gates and activates the "Morning Peacock" jutsu. Lee takes it head on and is overwhelmed by its power, so he opens his Eight Gates, activating the "Morning Gorilla" jutsu. They both clash and fall back, but Lee is debilitated, and the duel ends.
Lee tells Guy that he must be so ashamed of him for losing, but Guy reminds him of his determination and remarks that Lee's final attack's speed excelled his own. He asserts that one day Lee will surpass him and become a foolish but great ninja. They both cry, and they resume their training once again.
