After Sasuke is immobilized by the clay, Deidara places him in a sphere of C4 bombs. Sasuke manages to get out of it, but soon after, he begins to rapidly disintegrate. The disintegration again turns out to be genjutsu, and the real Sasuke attacks Deidara. Sasuke explained that he had realized earlier that lightning would neutralize Deidara’s explosive projectiles. By using Chidori on himself, Sasuke eliminated the threat of the microscopic bombs he inhaled detonating. Sasuke owes his salvation to the Sharingan.
