Team 10 realizes that they won’t be able to deal with Kakuzu’s extra hearts and Hidan’s immortality at the same time. Shikamaru volunteers to separate Hidan and Kakuzu so that the others can fight Kakuzu alone. After Kakashi hands something to Shikamaru, the latter tries to catch Hidan with his shadow. Caught by the shadow several times earlier, Hidan now does his best to avoid it. In the process, he fails to notice that Shikamaru has gotten significantly closer to him. Shikamaru punches him in the face, combining the shadows of both, allowing him to catch Hidan in his technique.
