"Puppet Fight: 10 vs 100!" (十機vs百機, Jukki vs Hyakki) is episode 26 of the Naruto: Shippūden anime.
Sakura and Chiyo continue their battle with Sasori, who is using flamethrowers on the rocks the pair are hiding behind. Chiyo attempts to attack Sasori using the head of the Third Kazekage puppet, but Sasori incinerates it. Sasori switches tactics and uses his Water Stream Shooters to destroy the rocks and the surrounding environment. Using the poison stinger attached to the coiled rope from his puppet body, Sasori attempts to stab them, but Sakura, who is still under the effects of the antidote, grabs the poisoned coiled rope and uses her strength to pull it. Sasori deems the action useless and charges at Chiyo, spinning the propeller blades attached to his body at a high speed. Before he can decimate Chiyo, Sakura manages to pull all of the rope, halting his attack and sending him flying towards her. Using her Chakra Enhanced Strength, she is able to shatter the puppet, sending his core of living flesh out of the body. Sakura believes the battle to be won and runs towards Chiyo, but the core reinserts itself into Sasori's puppet body, which is then reassembled.
Seeing this, Chiyo uses the White Secret Technique: The Chikamatsu Collection of Ten Puppets, summoning the ten puppets created by the first Puppet Master Monzaemon Chikamatsu. Chiyo refers to the technique as her trump card, as it takes veritable skill controlling ten puppets at once and only uses the technique in a life-or-death situation. Sasori commends the move, expecting no less from his esteemed grandmother; however, he counters with his Red Secret Technique: Performance of a Hundred Puppets, summoning one hundred puppets. Sakura uses her strength to fight Sasori's puppets and Chiyo does the same with the help of her Ten Puppets, showcasing that quality exceeds quantity, as Chiyo's ten puppets are far stronger than Sasori's one hundred. Chiyo and Sakura seem to trap and defeat Sasori using Sealing Technique: Lion Closing Roar, but, under the cover of battle, Sasori secretly transfers the only living part of his body — his core — into another puppet. Sakura once more believes the battle to be won and runs towards Chiyo, this time to heal the latter with the antidote, as she had been struck with poison during the blade. Sasori rushes towards Chiyo with a poison-tipped sword, intent on killing his grandmother, but Sakura uses herself as a shield and is stabbed in her torso.
