Deploy! Team Tenten (出撃! テンテン班, Shutsugeki! Tenten-Han) is episode 184 of the Naruto: Shippūden anime.
Due to the weakened military power of Konoha, Tenten, Neji, and Naruto are deployed to a weapon maker named Iō to transport 1000 shuriken and 1000 kunai. Instead to give them the weapons, he showed them useless weapons he made. While out on a snack, Team Tenten returns to find Iō missing. They find he is instead hidden behind a wall with traps inside. Tenten managed to defeat all of the obstacles and she managed to find a room full of Iō's greatest weapons. Meanwhile Gameru and Kusune have come to take more of Iō's weapons. They are wielding Dakō and Tsurukame and with them they can easily overpower Naruto's and Neji's skills. Tenten was able to beat them using Iō's latest weapon Jidanda. In the end, it shows Tenten and Neji at the bridge which crosses to Iō's living area. Tenten remarks how excited she is to see if Jidanda is finished so she can use it.
