Jiraiya, Minato, and Kakashi each could generate and maintain a Rasengan using only one hand. When Naruto first learned the technique, he needed shadow clones to help him.

When did Naruto learn how to generate and maintain a Rasengan without the aid of shadow clones or chakra arms?

The first time Naruto used Rasengan without clones is in Naruto episode 134 at around 8:20.

Edit: Here is the part where Naruto first used Rasengan with only one hand.

    In cases like these, you might want to post a screenshot from the anime, or relevant page from the manga to support your answer, so that people can quickly tell whether your answer is correct or not. Your answer as it is doesn't really stand on its own. – nhahtdh May 23 '15 at 16:37
  • @nhahtdh He/she has posted the episode number and even the time, why do you need a screenshot to verify? Anyone who wants to verify can watch the episode themselves. It is good to post a screenshot, but should not be made mandatory. – Masked Man May 24 '15 at 5:56
  • @EroSɘnnin That's nitpicking. When you use a technique, you have implicitly already learned it. People in Naruto "learn" jutsu during a battle all the time. Did Obito ever "learn" the Mokuton: Sashiki no Jutsu, or did Naruto ever "learn" the Uzumaki Naruto Nisen Renden? – Masked Man May 24 '15 at 6:01
  • @MaskedMan: On retrospect, I agree that an image is not needed in this case (though highly recommended). However, I feel that the answer lacks context and reference to support the claim. – nhahtdh May 24 '15 at 7:03

    Arguably, this is still assisted by Kurama, as even after the timeskip, he still uses clones, even into his fight with Pein. it's not until Kyubbi Chakra cloak that he could do it with one had (or chakra hand) which was shown in his fight with Obito i believe, but its Sage of Six paths naruto that could do Rasen shuriken with one hand (though he may have had help from the tailed beasts) its almost arguable he never learned how to do so. – Ryan Mar 14 '16 at 17:00

When Naruto and Sasuke were fighting at episode 134, Sasuke let his curse mark's power activate. He knew that the power would soon eat away at his body, so he planned to finish off Naruto with a chidori. However, when Naruto's body was taken over by the Ninetails cloak, he didn't need a clone to make a rasengan. So, to counter Sasuke's chidori, Naruto made a rasengan with a single hand for the first time. Later on, Naruto never really noticed how amazing that was, or how he still had to use shadow clones for a while.

In the Fourth Shinobi Great War after Sasuke and Naruto receive half the Sage of Six Paths Chakara, Naruto has the ability to maintain a perfect Sage Mode and directly after that he made a lava style: Rasenshuriken with one hand using Four-Tails Chakara and cut Madara in half with it. So he used the sage art lava style Rasenshuriken first with one hand. So it is evident he could make the Resengan with one hand after gaining the Six Paths power.

I believe that it was after Naruto got the half of the sage of six path Chakara, mainly because in part one (ep135) he had the cloak of the nine tails to help him, so he wasn't conscious of it. I think he was conscious of it when he fought Saskue because he did multiple shadow clones with Rasengan. Also because of the half he received he could naturally learn Chakara control (Thus how to use Rasengan with one hand).

Edit: Chapter 642, sage mode.
