Zero Motivation: The Guy with Cloud Envy! (雲はいいなあ…やる気ゼロの男, Kumo wa Ii naa… Yaru ki Zero no Otoko) is episode 64 of the original Naruto anime.


Though initially unwilling, Shikamaru fights Temari because he refuses to lose to a girl. Shikamaru quickly studies the arena and its elements and comes up with a plan. Despite this, Temari has seen Shikamaru's primary attack in action and knows how it works. It appears that Temari is able to evade Shikamaru's technique and adapt to his tactics; however Shikamaru had been luring her to the tunnel Naruto created in the previous match. Shikamaru catches her in his trap through use of the tunnel and clearly has won, but he forfeits at the last second, claiming to have exerted too much chakra in capturing Temari to fight later battles.
