The Docks produce spiritual images that can haunt Shikamaru beyond their physical range and through physical matter, all in accordance with the music played by Tayuya. Shikamaru retreats and formulates a plan. He begins to focus his attacks on Tayuya, Doki’s controller. Tayuya surrounds himself with Doki to act as a shield against Shikamaru’s attacks. Shikamaru then reveals himself, so Tayuya gathers Doki together and forces them to attack. Shikamaru uses a light bomb to extend his shadows and trap Doki. Tayuya asks him how he guessed the movements of all three, it is impossible to decipher the flute melody, but Shikamaru admits that he deciphered the attack pattern with his finger movements.
