Wrath of the Beasts!
Minato exhales his wind chakra into the blades of his Demon Wind Shuriken. Shindo does the same to his katana, which coats it in blue chakra.
Minato: "Toys", huh? Why don't you come over here and play, then?
Platinum: We no play with food, we eat food!
Shindo: Hmph. Maybe you'll like the taste of my katana.
The twins' reactivate their lightning armor, but they exert much more chakra then they did the first time. Their hair spikes up and their muscles increase in size.
In a blink of an eye, Titan appears behind Minato. Titan tries to grab him bear-hug style, but Itachi kicks him in the face.
Minato: Whoa! Nice save, bro!
Titan rolls on the ground like a tumbleweed. Platinum jumps skyhigh and tries to squash Shindo with his landing, but Shindo evades. The ground erupts where Platinum lands. Titan recovers from Itachi's kick and second later, he's behind Keiko.
Keiko doesn't notice Titan until it's too late. He picks her up with an iron grip...
Itachi enters the 5th Inner Gate in attempt to reach Keiko, but he doesn't make it in time. Titan slams her Liger Bomb-style and the entire grassfield quakes.
Itachi kicks Titan upward and wraps wires around them both since Itachi's arms couldn't possibly fit around Titan's huge body. Since Itachi has lightning nature, Titan's lightning armor does no harm to him. After they ascend 60 feet, they begin to rapidly spiral back to the ground, Titan's head first.
Itachi: Primary Lotus!
They descend to the ground like an enormous speeding bullet. The force creates a crater. Itachi undoes the wires, negates the Inner Gates, and jumps out of the crater. Titan lies there with his head stuck in the center of the crater and his lightning armor is no longer active.
Itachi and Minato check up on Keiko, expecting the worse. Aizu and Shindo are handling Platinum. Dust hovers over the spot where Keiko was slammed. When the dust settles, something pink and shiny is revealed.
Minato: What the....
Keiko: I'm fine, but that was too close for comfort.
She stands up, seeming to be fine. Keiko's entire body is coated in a pink and metallic material.
Keiko: This is my new technique, Crystal Release Armor. I activated it just a moment before the impact, I'm totally okay.
Minato: Pheww, thank goodness!
Itachi: Geez, Keiko. You almost gave me a heart attack. Well, I'd better go see if my taijutsu finished off that monster.
Keiko: I'll come with. I owe that freakazoid for screwing up my hair.
Minato: You're unbelievable, but I couldn't be more glad that you're alive. Looks like Shindo and Aizu can use some of my help.
The scene switches to Shindo and Aizu's battle against Platinum.
Aizu launches a collage of Water Release Dragons and Water Release: Raging Floods at Platinum, but just for diversions. Whenever Platinum leaps out the way of Aizu's jutsu, Shindo attempts to slice him with his wind-enhanced katana, but Platinum is just too fast.
Shindo: What a nuisance...
Aizu: No kidding.
Platinum flickers to Aizu's side and tries to punch him, which would be an instant KO, considering the twins' strength. As soon as it looks like Platinum's fist is about to contact with Aizu's face...
Minato's wind-enhanced Demon Wind Shuriken slices Platinum's right hand off and it comes back to Minato like a boomerang. Minato catches it by the handle.
Minato: *Being cocky* Seemed like you guys needed some help over here.
Shindo: *sarcastically* Neh, we didn't even break a sweat.
Aizu: Thank you, brother. We'd better keep a record of IOU's. As of now, I owe you one.
By now, the field has become a shallow pond, due to Aizu's various water jutsu. In pain, Platinum sinks underwater.
The scene switches to Keiko and Itachi, whom are just approaching the spot where Itachi seemingly defeated Titan. Of course, they're walking on water by focusing chakra to their feet. Titan is somewhere below them. Itachi senses something below the water that he doesn't like...
Itachi: Keiko...slowly back away...
Keiko: Huh? What for?
Itachi: Just trust me on this one..
They slowly walk backwards. Water boils by the spot where the crater and Titan should be...
The scene switches back over at Minato, Shindo, and Aizu.
Shindo senses a powerful chakra under the water where Platinum just sank. The twins' own chakra is incredible itself, but this chakra seems to originally belong to a different source and is in its own league.
Shindo: Guys, don't ask questions...Just follow my lead.
Shindo attacks the spot where the water boils. He bombards the area with wind blades from his katana. Minato and Aizu join in. Minato assaults with repetitive Eight Trigrams Vacuum Palms and Aizu makes the water dense in attempt keep whatever it is that Shindo fears from rising. After their combination attack, there's silence for a moment.
Minato: Well, did we get hi-
The water erupts from the spot that they've just attacked. Same with the spot that Itachi and Keiko backed away from. Instinctively, the five friends joins together and gets into defensive positives. Steam fogs the field-changed-pond and when it fades, two humongous figures stands side-by-side.
Platinum and Titan screams with intense rage. They are cloaked in red chakra and their appearances has completely changed. Each of them sprouts six red chakra tails.
Itachi: Shindo...tell me my senses are wrong and these guys didn't just become as powerful as I think they did....
Shindo: If I told you that, I'll be lying.
Titan: *In an eery, deep voice* You insects die now!!!!!
