The renegade ninja Deidara blew himself up. This happened at the end of Episode 124 or beginning of Episode 125 Shippuden (chapters 362 and chapters 363 of the manga). This episode was preceded by a battle with Sasuke’s Uchiha. Deidara fought selflessly against a strong opponent, but luck was not on his side.
Why Did Deidara Kill Himself?
Sasuke was able to completely disarm all of the renegade ninja’s available lightning bolts. Deidara saw only one option in this situation. The character blew himself up only to take his opponent along with him. In his mind, Deidara apologized to his partner Toby for leaving so unexpectedly. Deep down, the renegade ninja was sure that death would befall not only him, but also Toby. But the character miscalculated the force of the explosion.
Toby managed to survive. Along with him, Sasuke also survived, as the latter used all of his hidden reserves. Sasuke reacted quickly. He was able to summon Manda. Another dimension helped him hide from the blast wave.
Recent events showed that Deidara did not realize all his goals and dreams. After this explosion, Manda could not survive either. Deidara’s death was taken to heart by Paine. According to the character, the renegade ninja was not like everyone else. He was endowed with incredible powers.
After a while, Kabuto Yakushi decided to summon Deidara. To do so, he enlisted the help of the Unholy Resurrection. However, Kabuto Yakushi failed to completely take over Deidara’s consciousness. The renegade ninja understands this and hopes that this very circumstance will allow him to realize his dream. He needs to create his own unique work of art. But after the explosion and his death, Deidara can no longer control his body.
The renegade ninja and Kabuto Yakushi start searching for the island. Soon their search is successful. The character once again makes an explosion. The renegade ninja is now in front of Oonoki. He is the personification of Biji Kabuto. Deidara plans to engage in a fierce battle with his former teacher. But that battle never took place. Kabuto Yakushi quickly summons him back.
