Lee uses the banned technique Primary Lotus to attack Ghaara. It appears as if the match is over, but the move only damages the shell made by Gaara's sand. Unable to move after using Renge, Lee is simply thrown around by Gaara. Although Lee faces imminent defeat, he receives support from his mentor Guy. In order to win the match, Lee unleashes a move even more forbidden than Primary Lotus: Hidden Lotus.
