How Mahiru joined the Tourney
During the Third Shinobi World War Mahiru was partnered with Kakko and Taiseki. He went out to surveillance the area in which Team Minato was travelling. He employed about twenty shadow clones against the team, only to have all of them destroyed by Kakashi's Chidori. However, in the end he was able to counter the Chidori and would have succeeded in killing Kakashi without the intervention of Minato Namikaze who quickly got Kakashi to safety before holding a kunai to Mahiru's neck. Mahiru was then killed, but not before expressing regret for not running away when given the chance.
Resurrected by Quan Chi, Mahiru and his partners Kakko and Taiseki are ordered to spread war through the 100 Acre Wood. Only Owl stood in Mahiru's way.
