One of the clones first appears engaging in combat with Sasuke but swiftly forced back. He meets up in a mysterious clearing where he reports to his "father" wearing what appears to be an Akatsuki robe.
The two briefly talk about Sasuke, agreeing that he is too strong of an opponent but that he still needs to die. Afterward, Shin goes after Chōchō Akimichi and Sarada Uchiha after finding out they left Konoha. Shin engages them in battle where he eventually gains the upper-hand and tries to kill Chōchō until Naruto shows up and saves her. Shin then unveils his Mangekyō Sharingan and attempts to strike them with shuriken which get blocked by Naruto's Bijuu Mode.
Shin's father then appears as a creature, telling him to fall back. In which he is then teleported away. Shin later teleports with his father to where Naruto and Sarada is and uses six of his clones to fight them with. Shin's clones appeared in the laboratory with Shin and Sakura. When the leaf ninja breaks in to save Sakura from Shin, the clones appeared to try to fight the intruders. Some of clones turned on their leader, Shin, by stabbing him the moment he tried to leave the fight to get more organs. When Shin asked why they betrayed him, they replied that they do not need a father any longer. Shin soon succumbed to his injuries. After the battle with the Leaf ninjas, the clones were taken to the orphanage where Kabuto Yakushi was in charge of to be taken care of.
