Sakura and Chiyo continue the battle with Sasori, who overwhelms them initially. Sakura manages to later destroy Sasori's puppet body, but he reforms back. Seeing this, Chiyo summons the Ten Puppets of Chikamatsu, which Sasori counters with his One Hundred Puppet Manipulation Jutsu. Sakura and Chiyo, with the help of her Ten Puppets seem to trap and defeat Sasori, but, under cover of the battle, Sasori secretly transfers the only living part of his body - his heart - into another puppet, and tries to attack Chiyo from behind. Sakura notices this and intercedes, causing Sasori to stab her through her torso.
