High-Level Shinobi (一流の忍, Ichiryū no Shinobi) is episode 216 of the Naruto: Shippūden anime.
As Team Kakashi's encounter with Sasuke concludes, Naruto declares that when he and Sasuke fight they might both end up dying. Zetsu appears on the battlefield, and notifies Tobi of the situation. When Tobi arrives, Kakashi attempts to take him out once and for all with Kamui, however Tobi tells him that a technique like that would have no effect on him. When Sasuke and Tobi return to their base, Sasuke tells Tobi that he wants to transplant Itachi's eyes in order to crush Naruto with his full potential. Meanwhile, at the Samurai Bridge, Naruto passes out due to the effects of the scratch from Sakura's poisoned kunai, and Kakashi takes Karin into custody.
