Naruto attacks Kakuzu with Rasenshuriken, but his attack dissipates before he can land a hit. Meanwhile, with Hidan's dismembered remains in the trap hole, Shikamaru uses another explosive tag to fill in the hole to finally bury Hidan. He is joined by Sakura and Sai, and they head back to the others. Naruto once again creates a Rasenshuriken, and Kakuzu switches to a long-range mode to counter his attack. As Naruto, with his shadow clones, rush towards Kakuzu, the latter flies over and nails the original Naruto. But this is revealed to be a shadow clone, and the real Naruto manages to lands a direct hit with the second Rasenshuriken, destroying both of Kakuzu's replacement hearts and tearing his body apart.
