The Fifth Mizukage attacks Sasuke with Lava Element and Boiling Element attacks. Exhausted from his battle with the Fourth Raikage, Sasuke struggles to withstand the destructive nature of her techniques. Zetsu begins to sprout from the Mizukage and her allies, transmitting their chakra to Sasuke. Restored, Sasuke tries to resume his quest for Danzo. Then he is attacked by the Third Tsuchikage and, at first glance, kills him. Tobi appears and, carrying unconscious Sasuke on his back, demonstrates that this is not the case. He suggests that Kage listen to his story about the Eye of the Moon Plan.
