Sprinting Lightning (疾走る雷, Hashiru Ikazuchi) is episode 202 of the Naruto: Shippūden anime.
As Naruto tries to attack Tobi, Yamato and Kakashi separate the two. Tobi wants to know how Naruto turned Nagato into a traitor while Naruto wants to know about Sasuke. Tobi, not bothered by Yamato's restricting wooden tendrils, knowing their technique couldn't harm him, begins telling them the truth about Itachi as he couldn't tell Sasuke's story without mentioning Itachi's. The Raikage breaks the White Zetsu's neck, gaining admonishment from the Fifth Mizukage for killing a valuable source of information, and leaves with C and Darui to fight Sasuke. The samurai are alerted about Sasuke's infiltration and Karin notices Taka has been discovered. Sasuke kills many samurai while the Raikage, C, and Darui reach his location. Sasuke, Suigetsu and Jūgo fight them. The Raikage snaps Suigetsu's sword and Suigetsu begins to fight Darui with the broken half. Karin notices how Sasuke's chakra has become "colder and darker", and notes it to be worse then level two of his cursed seal. Jūgo transforms into his level two cursed state, and briefly fights the Raikage before being tossed aside. C is paralysed by Sasuke's genjutsu as Sasuke moves in to fight the Raikage.
