A few episodes after the battle with Hidan and Asuma... :'(. Shikamaru, Ino, Choji and Kakashi set out to find Hidan and Kakuzu. When they find them Shikamaru uses his shadow jutsu to "paralyze" the enemies. So far they can only see just Shikamaru. Why doesn't Kakashi use his new sharingan to completely obliterate hidan while he was frozen?

Please no spoilers as I am only in mid season 2.

  • What new Sharingan? – Akira Mahisaseru Apr 28 '16 at 0:52
  • The Sharingan Kakashi used on Deidara that tore off his arm. – IE5Master Apr 28 '16 at 16:42
  • that's not really a "new" Sharingan. It's his Mangekyou Sharingan, Kamui, that he has pretty much had for a long time. – Akira Mahisaseru Apr 29 '16 at 0:44
  • "new" to the show. First time you see it is when he uses it on Deidara. – IE5Master May 2 '16 at 15:36
  • I guess you can call it "new" for that reason, but in Naruto (the original) when Kakashi is fighting with Itachi, it was mentioned the he had one. – Akira Mahisaseru May 2 '16 at 16:39

THAT IS STRATEGY. When you don't even know a single thing about the enemy, would you go face to face directly? Well, in Shikamaru's case, there must be a person be the bait, once they make sure that the enemies are completely immobilized, the plan begins. Unfortunately, Kakuzu freed himself, so the plan failed.

Why did Ino did not use Mind Body Switch Technique on Kakuzu?
There are several reasons why Ino decided not to use it.
1. If the opponent's will is strong enough, they can force the user to leave their body. Apparently the stronger one has the stronger will.
2. If the user's chakra level is low, the technique will be harder to maintain.
3. If any physical injury causes on the victim's body while the mind link is active, it would cause the user's body to also receive those same injuries. This is a good chance for Hidan to kill her by piercing through Kakuzu's heart, Kakuzu will still be fine since he has multiple hearts. That is not a good idea to eliminate target.

Why Choji, Ino and Shikamaru did not apply Formation Ino–Shika–Chō in the battle to distract Kakuzu while Kakashi is aiming Hidan with his Mangekyō Sharingan?
1. Kakashi initially having trouble to aim target with Kamui properly, he struggled to hit his target (Recall the episode when Kakashi is using Kamui on Deidara). Hidan is shown to be very skilled in melee combat, he could run and jump to dodge Kakashi's aim.
2. It requires some amount of preparation and has a huge drain on his chakra each time it is performed. If he missed, huge portion of his chakra is wasted.
3. Kakashi hasn't completely mastered Kamui yet, at the time transporting an arm was his limit. Don't forget that Hidan is an immortal bastard, decapitation only makes him immobilize. Even though Kakashi was capable to aim Hidan's head accurately, Kakuzu could reveal his 4 masks with different nature affinity to disturb Kakashi.

  • Sure Kakuzu freed himself. Why did Ino not mind transfer to Kakuzu or even Choji and Ino battle him to distract while Kakashi used his sharingan. I get the whole STRATEGY thing but it could have been better. – IE5Master Apr 21 '16 at 20:03
  • @IE5Master See the edited answer. – Happy Face Apr 22 '16 at 1:32
  • +1 for immortal bastard. Thank you for your time, your answer was very informative. – IE5Master Apr 28 '16 at 16:48
