Kabuto, Sakura and Yamato distance themselves from the struggling Naruto. Kabuto, observing his transformation with four tails, notes that Naruto has become a monster in order to find Sasuke. Upset by what Naruto is exposing himself to, Sakura approaches him to try to calm him down, but Naruto, no longer able to distinguish friend from foe, attacks her. Yamato suppresses the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox’s influence on Naruto, while Kabuto expresses gratitude to Sakura for eliminating Sasori. Meanwhile, Orochimaru collapses from the strain on the ground after his battle with Naruto. Sai approaches him, who is about to speak to him on behalf of Danzo.
