Sasori’s parents died when he was a child. The “Mother and Father” puppets were created by Sasori in the likeness of his deceased parents in order to fulfill their functions. Being only puppets they could not give him their love and soon Sasori lost interest in them, putting them at Chiyo’s disposal. With their help, Chiyo fights the Third Kazekage’s puppet and the pair manage to overpower him in a regular puppet fight. The Third, who used to be human, retains all of his lifetime abilities, including Iron Sand. Sasori immobilizes the dolls with Iron Sand and attacks Sakura and Chiyo with it.
