Im wondering when this battle will happen, it seems sasuke is headed elsewhere and his revenge on Konoha is postponed again. When do you think this fight take place? Will it hppen after the war or maube a timeskip will occur and naruto and sasuke will fight as adults. Or will their battle ever happen?? Thoughts?
I still think they'll fight. But not as the avatars of hope and hate as we originally thought they would. When Naruto and Sasuke fight it will be after they both have accepted eachother's stances and view eachother as "high class ninja", like when they first fought and Sasuke put his headband on.
http://www.narutobase.net/manga/Naruto/219/6 "That wasn't the fight I wanted."
Naruto wanted to fight Sasuke, but not as an enemy. Or to protect others from him. He wanted to fight him as his rival. His equal. And Sasuke?
http://www.narutobase.net/manga/Naruto/230/3 He'll acknowledge how far Naruto's come like he did last time.
I see something along the lines of Naruto giving Sasuke back his headband so that they can have their battle. What the purpose or outcome of that fight will be though... dunno. Probably just as Naruto's initiation as the "true strongest" between the two. Not because the world is in danger or Konoha needs to be saved from Sasuke.
The fight will take place at the very end of the manga, as an epilogue after a huge time skip.
Naruto and Sasuke sit at Ichiraku's Ramen and talk about old times (they're both well into their fifties at this point). They're both moderately drunk, and Naruto does some stupid joke about some embarrassing love triangle accident between Sasuke, Karin and Sakura 25 years ago, which in turn upsets Sasuke, so he shoves his Sake into Naruto's face and he repays the favor by mocking Naruto about Hinata getting fat after he married her.
Naruto loses it, forms a Rasengan and slams it into Sasuke's Ramen, which causes it to splatter all over his clothes. Now Sasuke is seriuosly pissed off as well and both of them get into a drunken brawl which destroys half of Konoha.
Afterwards the Manga ends.

I agree, Sasuke should not be the symbol of "hate" but rather as the rival of Naruto and it should be the last fight in the manga. Also this should be after a time skip, after a period of peace. This gives both characters to grow and personally I rather see an adult Naruto vs an adult Sasuke.
When sasuke fight naruto, his hate would change to forgiveness. Then sasuke would realize that itachi is right. Then sasuke would literally become like vegeta. His going to protect the konoha because his beloved brother ask him too. Then from hatred, sasuke's power would be awaken because of his love to the konoha, then he'll awaken the full powered rinnegan. Then sasuke would realize that love is the key for peace. Then he and naruto would fight together and find the true peace.
At this point I think that their fight will take place after the war and then Sasuke will be forgiven for all his crimes and everyone will live happily ever after.....
Of course it will happen, Sasuke isn't the type to be swayed by words alone.
As ninjabot illustrated pretty well, Sasuke considers Naruto almost like an equal, meaning Naruto is the only one that can hope to change Sasuke's ideals ( knowing, like we know, that the other one that Sasuke right now respects is his dead brother ), and to do that he has to show to Sasuke that his ideals are the better ones, that love beats hatred and all that sappy crap.
As to how the fight will go down, I think it will be similar to their fight in part 1, only that, in their last clash, Sasuke will be the one that will hold back, probably swayed by Naruto's words and actions, enabling him to win.
That way the circle will close and Sasuke will either return to Konoha or Naruto will let him go his way, finally respecting his choice.
If Sasuke becomes a nationalistic moron; I am officially done with this Manga. My manga viewing will depend upon how the fight is portrayed. The best scenario will be simple acknowledgement on part of Naruto and Sasuke and the persecution of the corrupt politicians, which includes the Kages.
I'm more worried about how the fight will go down. They both have such big and powerful jutsu that they won't really be able to trade blows. Will we even see any Taijutsu from the two?
I'm sure the anime will go balls out though.
I expect they will fight, but like some others here, I don't believe it will be a fight to destroy/save Konoha. It will be after the war is over, with each emerging as the heroes that brought the world back from the brink. It will be a battle of rivals, friends, brothers, but it won't be without a stake. Instead, it will be the bookend to the original battle at the Valley of the End (and I don't mean their fight), and the stake will be Konoha herself, the restoration of the original dream.
Sasuke will win, but not because Naruto couldn't have won. In the end, Naruto will realize that Sasuke has to win.
And Sasuke will become the next Hokage and Naruto after him. And the may have a fun fight again after that.

Errr, of course they will be able to exchange blows. You see, Sasuke's ultimate EMS ability will be to have a body/cloak version of Susano'o. In other words a compressed Susano'o thus more dense and powerful. He will thus gain defense and offensive power comparable to Naruto in his cloaked form. Simple logic. His lack of speed will be weighed up with Sharingan's prediction ability, and him using EMS will make his eyesight that much more potent.
As for the outcome of the fight, screwing up its content both mid- and post-fight will be a serious embarrassment and failure on Kishi's part, as everything has been leading up to it for eternity. Naruto basically already understands Sasuke's reasons for going awol, thus he has indirectly already acknowledged the corrupt government. Naruto won't allow any of that as Hokage anyway, thus his ability to get rid of it will be the major trial that will decide the outcome of the entire Sasuke plot.

I don't even care for NaruSaku or NaruHina. I just hate SasuSaku. So much. They could be with anybody but if Sakura get's with Sasuke she will stay as the scum of the series. He has never once even hinted to liking her back. She confessed he never cared then, tried to kill her, and the fact that she still has that schoolgirl crush on him is low. She let a crush develop in to love whilst he went and became an international criminal and he has clearly never once thought about her.
She is so pathetic. Sasuke is far above her.
Sorry about that.
I'm pretty sure that Naruto VS Sasuke will be after Naruto overcomes Obito.
I think Obito and Madara will be overcome, then the alliance is sort of over and everybody goes back to their villages.
Then we shift focus to Sasuke and the one who knows everything for a while.
And then we get some revelations again for a while and bam we have Naruto VS Sasuke.
So totally hope Kishi somehow makes it so that we see Naruto and Sasuke fight without their Kyuubi or Mangekyo power, more like the Part I fight. He better not turn it into another DBZ fight, because that shit doesn't belong in Naruto. I'd much rather see both of them using strategies to win, not spam jutsu and defense.
