After Mū is detected, Kabuto uses him as a medium to summon the Third Raikage, Second Mizukage and Fourth Kazekage to the battlefield where the Fourth Division is located and declares that he would let the Kage kill their progeny with their personalities still in tact. While the reincarnated Kage have a brief conversation, Gaara locates them and prepares his division for battle. Meanwhile at the Allied Shinobi Forces headquarters, the Sensor Division turn their attention to the Land of Lightning's coast and Ao focuses on detecting the reincarnated shinobi amongst the White Zetsu Army clones. Sensing that there were too many powerful reincarnated shinobi for Darui's division to manage alone, things escalate even further when A realises that amongst them were Kumogakure's Gold and Silver Brothers. Declaring that he would have to enter the battle directly to deal with those two, A is dissuaded from this by Shikaku Nara — the head strategist — who reformulates the Alliance's battle formation in a way that allows ample support for all the divisions. Greatly impressed by this, A commends Tsunade before telling Shikaku to implement his strategy. Ōnoki however, interrupts, telling Shikaku that he was the only one who could defeat Mū because of the kekkei tōta which they possessed. With this, Ōnoki prepares to mobilise, intending to show the younger generation what battling really meant.
