Shikamaru vs. Hidan
Naruto Shippuden

Shikamaru is one of the important figures and pillars of the Hidden Leaf Village. He might not have enough powers to kill his opponent, but his battle strategies always make him win many battles. Shikamaru is one of the best strategies Hidden Leaf Village has ever had. His role in the Naruto series makes it more interesting, even though he is a lazy guy who you can think will slack during battles. This is one of the best topics that many have forgotten since no one ever thought that Shikamaru would kill anyone because he has a soft heart or tends to run away from a battle. 

We will reveal everything about Shikamaru and the episode where he killed one of the Akatsuki Immortal Hidan. Hidan was the hardest puzzle that Shikamaru had ever faced since Shikamaru failed to defeat Hidan in their first battle, and Shikamaru witnessed his master die at the hands of Hidan. This made Shikamaru plans how he would avenge the death of his master, and the team was sent on another mission where Shikamaru planned to kill Hidan. Shikamaru learned how to defeat Hidan one night after his father gave him fatherly advice, and he played Shogo planning how he would kill Hidan.  

This was the most interesting arc of the Naruto series that showed that Shikamaru has improved as the village’s strategist. Shikamaru is a young man with spiky black hair who always loved to take rest and play games with his father before his father passed away. He killed Hidan because Hidan took something precious from his life. Shikamaru was the first student to become Genin during his era due to his skills and how he analyzed the battle. Let’s find out the episode where Shikamaru killed Hidan.

They encounter Hidan and Kakuzu in the forest, where they begin part two of the battle, and Shikamaru realizes that he can’t lose it.

Shikamaru managed to trick Hidan and lure him away from Kukuzu, and this helped Shikamaru kill Hidan in the nearby forest by burning him using Asuma’s cig lighter.
