Everyone who has watched Naruto knows that Naruto isn't good at clone jutsu. However, there's a part which confuses me: how did he elude those 2 guys chasing him after he steals that forbidden scroll in the first episode?

In the anime, from 1:40 to 1:50, it showed the same wall where Naruto passed by and followed by 2 guys. Then, 1-2 secs later Naruto was revealed hiding behind the wallpaper. How did he do that? He couldn't have used a transformation jutsu; if he did he could just stay in the transform jutsu. He shouldn't be faster than Chuunin or Jounin, but from 1:41-1:45 it showed them chasing him at the same speed (Although, if they have higher speed than Naruto, they would have caught him).

    If you watch Naruto looking for plot consistency and a compelling storyline you're going to have a bad time, IMHO. Naruto and friends consistently face off against much more skilled and experienced foes and come out ahead by the skin of their teeth every. single. time. – mfoy_ May 7 '15 at 14:55
  • The rest of the episodes are fine, it was just the first episode I'm curious.. – Minato Namikaze May 8 '15 at 7:33
  • Quite possibly he has mastered Kage Bunshin no Jutsu at that time. Which also explains why the chasing ninja didn't notice that it was a bunshin. – 絢瀬絵里 May 11 '15 at 10:23

First of all, he was vandalizing around the town when the two guys were chasing him. He steals the scroll later on. And it wasn't the transformation jutsu either. Just a simple trick with the wall paper. Now don't ask me where did he get that wall paper.

As for speed, even if he is a rookie, he is still a ninja and the other two didn't seem to be exceptionally skilled either. If it's someone like Kakashi, clearly he didn't have a chance.
