Team Asuma recognises the reanimated corpses fighting them as those of the Kohaku Clan as well as the citizens of all the villages attacked by Furido's 4-Man Team. Shikamaru, meanwhile, is in a meeting with Tsunade and Shizune discussing defensive countermeasures. Asuma tells Team Ebisu to send any shinobi of chunin rank or higher to the power station, and heads off in that direction. When he arrives there, he finds the reanimated corpses of Kitane, Nauma, Tōu and Seito, the four strongest members of the Twelve Guardian Ninja. Unlike the members of the Kohaku clan, these four have been reanimated completely, along with their original personalities and abilities, albeit forced to obey their caster's commands. Yamato and Sakura join Asuma at the power station and Asuma tells them that the four are attempting to use Limelight, a technique that causes complete destruction within a contained radius. He tells them that all four of them need to be in north, south, east and west positions and to prevent at least one of them from reaching their direction. In the meantime, he promises to deal with Kitane.
Naruto manages to catch up to Sora, asking why Sora would try to kill Tsunade and why he is aligned with those who are attacking the village. Sora tells Naruto that he simply wanted to take down Konoha's Hokage due to the fact that he believes it was the Third Hokage who told his son Asuma to kill Kazuma, Sora's father. Sora decides to flee once more, but before Naruto can pursue him, he is blocked by Fūka, who wishes to pick up where they left off. Fuen traps Sakura, but shows disdain in trapping a female and asks where Sai is; Fudō manages to ensnare Yamato, and after coating himself with his Rock Armour, hits the captain with his Chakra Enhanced Strength.
On the outskirts of the village, Sora finds Furido, who confirms that Konoha will be burned down for the benefit of the Land of Fire, much to Sora's horror.
