Orochimaru urges the Third Hokage to finally surrender and die, but he keeps pulling the soul out of Orochimaru. Orochimaru says that nothing will stop the destruction of Konoha because all the forces of Sand and Sound have descended upon it. The third responds that Orochimaru should not underestimate the ninja of the Leaf village. Throughout Konoha, experienced shinobi defend their village: Yugao Uzuki promises revenge for Hayate, Hiashi Hyuga defeats dozens of opponents, Team 10 fathers fight together again for the first time in years, Shibi Aburame saves his son from the effects of the poison he previously inhaled, Tsume, Hana Inuzuka and their ninjas prepare for battle, the two remaining interlopers in the arena are surrounded. At this time, Naruto and Gaara rush towards each other. The third says that strength is not determined by the number of ninjutsu he has learned, and uses the Dead Demon Seal to seal Orochimaru’s hands, thereby taking away all of his jutsu. He looks at his former student and dies smiling as Naruto defeats Gaara.
