    • Shikamaru: (Thinking) She doesn't mess around. She's as subtle as a rhino. She might even be scarier than my mom.

    • Kankuro: It's like they're over there just mocking us. Kiba: This isn't the kind of enemy you can beat head to head. Back down and we'll regroup. Kankuro: I can't back down when they show me no respect.

    • Kiba: (Thinking) His wounds are back to normal? His healing powers are unbelievable!

    • Sakon: That hurt! You take over, brother, while I rest in this body a little bit first. Ukon: You're so pathetic, Sakon!

    • Kiba: (Thinking) I hated going up against the Sand Ninja as enemies, but as allies, they're pretty amazing.

    • According to Kankuro, Kuroari (his new puppet) is used for trapping his opponents. It isn't an offensive puppet. Also according to Kankuro, Kuroari works well with Karasu as the two puppets together can use the Karakuri Engeki: Kuro Higi Ippatsu technique. (The Puppet Play: Darkness Attack)

    Trivia (2)

    • When the screen rotated after Kimimaro fired his fingertip bones to show Lee and Gaara facing Kimimaro, you can see Kimimaro has his arms pointed at Lee and Gaara. But, when they show a close up of him, his arms are stretched out to the side.

    • When Ukon and Sakon merge back together after Sakon got hurt. Ukon was facing Kankuro, while his back was facing Sakon but when they merged together again seconds later, Sakon entered from the front, while Ukon was still facing Kankuro, clearly seen with his hand and foot going in the front
