"The Legendary Ino–Shika–Chō" (伝説の猪鹿蝶, Densetsu no Ino–Shika–Chō) is episode 239 of the Naruto: Shippūden anime.

Summary

Ino is irritated at her father for walking in on her while she was nude and then having the gall to suggest that she may be dating Shikamaru or Chōji. As Shikamaru and Chōji try to calm her down, the three notice three kids fighting. Shikamaru uses his Shadow Imitation Technique to prevent them from fighting as Chōji and Ino convince them to stop, the latter managing to infatuate the three boys.

The ordeal is witnessed by Kosuke Maruboshi, who praises Team Asuma's teamwork. Shikamaru reminds his teammates that they met him before during a mission they were given when they were genin, when they used their Ino–Shika–Chō formation to save him from being killed by bandits. Shikamaru remembers that after that mission, Kosuke told him that it was the second time he was saved by the Ino–Shika–Chō, and Kosuke reveals that he was once saved by their fathers.

During the Konoha Crush, Ino–Shika–Chō battled the invading Oto-nin by combining Chōza's Multi-Size Technique with Shikaku's Shadow Sewing Technique and Inoichi's Mind Body Disturbance Technique. Shikaku then used his Black Spider Lily to pull the opponents into range of Inoichi's Mind Disturbance Dance Performance Technique, causing the enemies to fight amongst themselves. Kosuke had been amazed by their teamwork then, while Shikaku mused that their children would surpass them in a few years.

As Kosuke finishes sharing the story, he departs, leaving the three bummed out that they haven't managed to surpass their fathers after all. However, Shikamaru cheers them up by stating that they are smart and known for strategising and that they would be fine during the Fourth Shinobi World War since they would not be fighting alone.

Trivia

  • Both the Yamanaka and Akimichi clans' symbols shown in this episode are erroneously depicted compared to the symbol shown in the manga. The Yamanaka symbol has no lines touching the circle and the Akimichi's is noticeably missing the vertical line that is supposed to run through it.[1]
  • In this episode, Shikaku is briefly shown without his goatee.
