Kakashi, who previously managed to save his comrades, tries to find out why Itachi and Kisame came. When Kisame is about to attack Kakashi, Itachi stops him because their fight could drag on, and during that time, reinforcements could come. However, he decides that he can handle it faster, so he attacks Kakashi himself. They exchange a series of lightning-fast jutsu. Itachi decides to show the true power of the Sharingan and uses Tsukuyomi. To prevent his comrades from being hit by his action, Kakashi orders Asume and Kurenai to close their eyes. But despite possessing the Sharingan, Kakashi himself becomes a victim of genjutsu. In the illusion, Itachi tortures Kakashi nonstop. According to his senses, they spent three days in the illusion, but it was actually less than a second. He asks again why the two renegades came to Konoha.
Itachi informs him that they came for the Fourth Hokage’s Legacy.
