"The Allied Shinobi Forces Technique" (忍連合軍の術!, Shinobi Rengōgun no Jutsu!) is episode 363 of the Naruto: Shippūden anime.
Naruto is confused at first over not being able to sense the Ten-Tails, so Kurama tells him that the Ten-Tails is akin to natural energy, prompting Naruto to stagger when he senses it in Sage Mode. Madara and Obito take command of the Ten-Tails, and discuss whether they should move their plans along or test its power. Kurama develops a strategy against the Ten-Tails, resulting in a gamble with a Kakashi releasing B from Kamui's dimension right in front of the beast to target its eye, but it simply flicks the Tailed Beast Ball right back at B. Running low on chakra, B and Naruto revert from their Tailed Beast Modes. Naruto moves in to create more shadow clones, but ends up discussing ideals with Obito. Obito has the Ten-Tails fire a Tailed Beast Ball at them, which misses due to the timely arrival and intervention of Ino, Hinata, and a few others. Several Aburame and Kirigakure shinobi disrupt sensing and conceal the battlefield. The rest of the Allied Shinobi Forces arrives at the battlefield, revealed as the Ten-Tails swipes its tail to blow away their cover. Naruto boldly claims that the Allied Shinobi Forces Technique is more powerful than the Infinite Tsukuyomi. Remaining unimpressed by their swollen numbers, Obito argues with Naruto some more, during which time Shikaku relays the Alliance a strategy through Inoichi's telepathy. The Alliance sequentially blinds the Ten-Tails, sinks it into the ground, and binds it with a quick-drying mixture of water and quicklime. Madara notes the good coordination from shinobi from different countries. Shikaku instructs the Alliance to cooperate with Naruto in exploiting the limits of Obito's intangibility, and taijutsu-capable shinobi to attack Madara. As their assault begins, Obito and Madara note that they cling to hope that doesn't exist as the Ten-Tails begins changing.
- Before the Allied Shinobi Forces began their assault on Obito and Madara, behind Might Guy and Rock Lee are two Kiri shinobi who bear striking resemblances to Zōri and Waraji. There also happens to be a Kumo shinobi who resembles Jako.
- When the Ten-Tails first roared, its eye was depicted as a regular Rinnegan instead of its Rinne Sharingan.
