By utilising the Stone of Gelel, Ranke can turn into a grotesque and deformed monster. Her ability to manipulate lightning through the Stone of Gelel greatly increases, being able to make a barrier of electricity in order to block attacks coming at her with ease. Her strength also increases upon her transformation, being able to send one of Gaara's clones clashing onto a pipe, and her [[Fighting Style|style]] changes from electrical energy control to [[Taijutsu|close-quarter combat]] by simply charging in to strike down the opponent while relying on the barrier to negate frontal attacks.

Ranke first appears taking care of children being used to make new soldiers by Haido. Soon, she along with Kamira, was ambushed by Gaara. Kamira took on [[Kankurō]] while Ranke took on [[Gaara]]. Ranke underestimated Gaara and makes the [[Tornado Lightning|first move]] in the battle. Gaara blocks her attacks with sand. She distracts Gaara, and begins flipping towards him. Gaara attacks her with [[Sand Drizzle]] though she blocks his attack and keeps moving towards him. She then uses [[Thunder Sabre]] and punches him, sending him flying. Gaara attempts to crush her with his [[Sand Waterfall Funeral]] though fails due to Ranke's transformation. Gaara sees the transformation and observes that she was using [[taijutsu]] in order to increase her power. She heads towards Gaara using her [[Plasma Ball]] technique. Gaara's techniques fail to hurt Ranke. Ranke then attacks Gaara, which happens to be a clone, making Ranke feel like a fool as the latter comments of her first encounter with a shinobi like him. Then, Gaara completely covers the building they were in with sand, thus wrapping Ranke in sand. The attack Gaara made on Ranke fails again, and she begins to charge at Gaara. Ranke's electricity gets countered by Gaara's [[Sand Lightning Needles]] technique. Gaara then uses his [[Sand Waterfall Imperial Funeral]] to raise sand from desert all around Ranke and trap her. Ranke, unprotected and trapped, screams as she is crushed and killed by Gaara's sand.
