The Sand Shinobi: Allies of the Leaf (木ノ葉同盟国砂の忍, Konoha Dōmeikoku Suna no Shinobi) is episode 125 of the original Naruto anime.
Kankurō moves to fight Sakon and reveals a new puppet. He then moves his puppets into play and captures the brothers, quickly killing them. Elsewhere, Shikamaru lays out Tayuya's abilities in detail but Temari says it is not a problem. She summons Kamatari, which cuts a path of destruction, levelling the forest and killing Tayuya with ease. In the field, Gaara stands before Lee and uses his sand to deflect attacks fired by Kimimaro in their direction.
