Three huge beasts appear on the battlefield, summoned by the Sannin – Tsunade summoned Katsuya, Orochimaru summoned Mandu, and Jiraiya summoned Gamabuntu. Gamatatsu and Gamakichi greet their father by escaping to safety. Manda is greatly displeased at being summoned and demands at least a hundred casualties for disturbing his peace. Tsunade tells Katsuya to tell Naruto to tell Shizuna to move him to safety.
After exchanging “pleasantries,” the sannins begin the fight. Despite the best efforts of Jiraiya and Tsunade, Mande manages to dodge all attacks thanks to his speed. As the serpent prepares to bite Gamabuntu, Tsunade manages to close Mande’s mouth and nail him to the ground with Toad Boss’s tanto. Orochimaru lets out his tongue and grabs Tsunade by the neck to strangle him, but Tsunade, using his long tongue as a rope, pulls his opponent to him and punches him in the face.
