Before he could carve the Sixth Hokage Candidate's face into the monument, he is informed by his assistant that he has been killed. He is later infuriated, due to the hard work he has put in to just have a perfect visualization of his face. Before Kakashi Hatake could attend an emergency meeting with the Fire Daimyō, he takes him with him to make preparations for his stone carving by measuring his face and preparing a mould by painting thin layers of plaster. Before he could make the mould he asked Kakashi to remove his mask, saying that the stone face "...won't look good if you're hiding your face".
