After hearing Obito and Madara's discussion, Naruto's shadow clone moves in to attack them with a Super Mini-Tailed Beast Ball. Madara, however, blocks the attack and defeats the clone. Then, he manages to capture the Eight and Nine-Tails during which time Kakashi questions his old friend about what happened to him. Meanwhile, Naruto declares to Madara that he is the Fourth Hokage's son and would not be overpowered by him. Madara then creates an enormous wood dragon, forcing Naruto to enter Tailed Beast Mode. Kakashi asks Obito why he chose to follow Madara's path, but the former notes he has nothing more to say to him. Continuing their battle, Obito executes an attack with many shuriken, but is stopped by Kakashi's wall of earth. As Obito slips through the wall, Kakashi continues to ask him if the reason was related to Rin, to which Obito sharply retorts telling him to be silent. Obito then warps Kakashi to the other dimension, but Kakashi soon returns with the same technique. In the meantime, the Wood Dragon begins absorbing Kurama's chakra, causing Naruto to go on the verge of a breakdown. Hearing Naruto's words that he would protect his friends, Kakashi and Guy both spring into action with the former using Lightning Cutter to destroy Obito's other shuriken and Guy using Daytime Tiger to attack Madara. Gyūki then decides to attack the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path before the Ten-Tails could be revived when noticing the crack of barrier. Kurama then reveals that Kakashi was attacking Obito from the other dimension and that it had given the shinobi some of its chakra when touching his hand. As Kakashi returns to the real world thanking Kurama, Naruto and Killer B both combine their massive sphere, firing the Demonic Statue far away. After the explosion, they note that the statue's chakra had vanished, causing them to question whether this is the end. However, when the smoke clears, the revived Ten-Tails appears, prompting Obito and Madara to begin their plan.
