Kiba and Akamaru attack Sakon and Ukon, separating them. When Sakon and Ukon counterattack, Akamaru puts himself in danger to protect Kiba. While Akamaru manages to blind Sakon at the last minute, Ukon connects with Kiba’s body. He tells Kiba that he will kill Kiba from the inside. Kiba stabs himself with his kunai, taking advantage of the fact that Ukon will suffer the same injuries by merging with him.
