Ashitaba accompanied his brother Komichi to their village to get his teddy bear, even though they were warned by Team Jiraiya earlier to stay away from the village. After finding the bear, they tried to leave but were approached by Team Asuma. While Ashitaba and Komichi hid in fear, a fight broke out between Team Asuma and Team Jiraiya, leading the house to break apart. Ashitaba and his brother were swallowed by the ground as a consequence.
In the underground, Ashitaba and his brother were attacked by giant worm-like creatures until Team Jiraiya and Team Asuma rescued them. After having been brought to their mother, the family went back to their village. However, during the night, a giant explosion destroyed the village and killed everyone in it, including Ashitaba.
