The Naruto clones throw a lot of Shuriken at Kimimaro, but he only makes 3 sword swipes to protect himself from all of them, and then we see 5 Shuriken cut in half.
Shikamaru: (Thinking) Darn it! She's got incredible strength. At this distance, I can't hold onto her.
Shikamaru: What'd I tell ya? I'd hunt you down with your own pieces. I used them all right, your three pawns were just the bait I needed. In any good strategy, the first attack is always a fake-out. The tactic is to score on the second move.
Shikamaru: (Thinking) All right, it's time! Everything is ready, the only thing left is to get it over with.
Tayuya: (Thinking) There's no use hiding. Unless you can predict these guy's movements, there's no where you can run, little rat.
Tayuya: No one's ever heard this song and lived. Here's the finale... Ninth Passage: Demon Revolution!
Shikamaru: (Thinking) With that flute, she can manipulate her buddies like puppets. That song is comprised of sequences modulated sound waves. Each sequence controlling a certain movement. Right Shikamaru, you can analyze it fine, but what are you going to do to counteract it? She's right, the fact remains that I have no ear for music.
Tayuya: So you said this was your final move, didn't you? Heh, unfortunately, it's checkmate. Die, little rat!
Shikamaru: Shouldn't you be a bit more worried? You could at least pull a knife or something.
Tayuya: This flute is my only weapon. I told you not one person who's heard this sound of this flute has survived, idiot.
Kimimaro: I already told you, this bone is harder than steel. Maybe you would like me to demonstrate just how strong it is?
Tayuya: Knowing what I've been doing isn't the same as knowing how to stop me.
Shikamaru: You got a point there. I never was very musical, just ask my mom and dad
Tayuya: You tricked me, you bastard!
Shikamaru: I've got nine moves; I've got to win by then. Game on!
Tayuya: There isn't anyone who has listened to this song and survived.
Tayuya: For an idiot like you, to understand the complexity of the melody is not too bad. But there is no way that you can completely comprehend this song.
Shikamaru: It's true that I don't really like the arts.
Shikamaru: Like I said before, the first move is a fake. The next hit is going to be obvious.
Naruto: I'll crush you!
Kimimaro: You shouldn't make promises you can't keep.
Naruto: Shut up!
When Shikamaru is caught in the illusion,in the manga, the flesh of his arm is seen melting off his bones; in the anime, his entire arm is melting, including the bones.
