Kakashi reveals that while he knows how to perform Rasengan, he cannot combine his own lightning-based chakra. He adds that even the Fourth Hokage, who created the move, could not combine his wind-based chakra with the technique, but that Naruto might be able to. Asuma sends word to other teams about Akatsukiís location and proceeds on despite his concern about Akatsukiís strength. Kakuzu turns in Chirikuís corpse despite Hidanís complaints, and says that he is partnered with Hidan because he cannot kill him. The stress of the training begins to bring out the Nine-Tailed Fox, but Yamato suppresses it. Asumaís team reaches the bounty station and ambushes Hidan. Izumo and Kotetsu attack Hidan, but are unable to kill him despite hitting vital organs. Asuma tells his teammates that if they retreat they will be killed and Konoha will be endangered. Shikamaru realizes that Asuma is considering sacrificing himself to help defeat the enemy, based on what he knows of Asuma's shogi strategy. Asuma begins fighting Hidan while Shikamaru occupies him by forcing him to dodge Shadow Sewing. Hidan cuts Asuma on the cheek, and steps into a circle of blood and transforms just as Asuma uses a jutsu to fire a cloud of burning ash at him.
