Part I

Sasuke Recovery Mission

At the end of Part I, Konan made a cameo appearance as a silhouette during an Akatsuki
gathering where they discussed Orochimaru's taking of Sasuke Uchiha, as well as the capturing
of the Nine-Tails and the furthering of their plans.

Part II
She was present alongside the other Akatsuki members during most of their meetings. She is a
quiet and taciturn person by nature, and didn't say a word during the meetings and sealing rituals.
However, her silhouette was shown when Pain mentioned the reason for her affiliation with

Tale of Jiraiya the Gallant

Konan fighting Jiraiya.

Konan informed Pain that Tobi who would be revealed as the true leader of the organisation
had arrived in Amegagakure for a meeting with them. After Tobi left, she knew that
something that the latter said had upset Nagato. When Jiraiya infiltrated Amegakure, Pain
stopped the rain and had Konan scour the village in search of him by splitting into numerous
paper butterflies. After locating the intruder, she informed Pain and then engaged him in battle
until Pain could arrive. She attacked Jiraiya, restraining him in a a swarm of paper and created a
spear, but the Sannin noticed the attack and deflected it using his Toad Fire Technique, driving
her back. Jiraiya recognised her and complimented her on her power and beauty, commenting
that she had become "one hell of a woman".
As they fought, Konan's paper ninjutsu was able to overwhelm his fire technique, however,
Jiraiya used her weakness against her by countering her technique with an oil-based attack

instead, rendering her unable to manipulate her paper. After which she is immobilised by his
elongated hair, but she was saved when Pain appeared and washed the oil away. She regrouped
with him after he had killed Jiraiya.

Pain's Assault

Konan later accompanied Pain during his attack on Konoha. When they arrived, they swiftly
eliminated a patrol of Konoha-nin, with Pain giving Konan orders to spare no-one. She was
shown asking the Konoha shinobi if they knew the whereabouts of Naruto Uzumaki as they were
trapped in her paper. The shinobi were saved by the Aburame clan's kikaich.

In the anime, she then engaged in a short battle against Shino, his father, and a few other
Aburame clan members. After Shino stated he would not go easy on her, he sent his swarm of
bugs to surround her. Konan blew the bugs away with ease with a paper explosion, disappearing
in the process. The Aburame members looked up to find that Konan had created dozens of Paper
Clones, which then jumped down for their assault. The kikaich were then sent to attack the
paper clones, but Konan had hidden explosive tags within them and they exploded on contact.
Through the fire caused by the explosions, the real Konan was seen walking towards Shino and
his clan members, doused in water. Shino's father commented on her power and quick thinking,
using "her natural weakness as an advantage" and warned Shino to be careful.
Konan was called back shortly after she started to battle them, only to discover Pain had decided
to use one of his most dangerous techniques. Concerned for his health, she begged him to stop
using the technique, to no avail. Pain clearly had his mind made up, and continued to use the
technique on a massive scale.

Konan and Nagato meet Naruto.

After consulting with Pain about the use of his technique, she was shown departing, stating she
would look after him from now on. She then dispersed her Paper Clone and remained with
Nagato for the rest of the invasion, constantly asking that he not overexert himself. When Naruto
later found their location, she attempted to keep him from Nagato, but Nagato told her to step
aside. She did as he asked, and listened to their conversation, but remained concerned about
Nagato's condition. When Naruto led Nagato to having a change of heart and he decided to
revive the people of Konoha, Konan realised that doing so would cost him his life. Knowing she
couldn't stop him, however, she only marvelled at Naruto's ability to change others.

When all of the Konoha ninja were revived, Konan, like Nagato, entrusted the task of finding
peace to Naruto. She wrapped Nagato and the Deva Path dead bodies in her paper to take them
with her to Amegakure. When asked by Naruto if she would return to Akatsuki, she said that she
was through with the organisation, as Nagato and Yahiko had meant everything to her, and now
she and her village would help Naruto accomplish their dream of bringing peace to the world.
She gave him a bouquet of paper flowers to symbolise a truce and wished that they would
become "flowers of hope that never die" for him.
Fourth Shinobi World War: Countdown

Konan confronting Tobi.

Tobi infiltrates Amegakure and is immediately confronted by Konan. He asks her where to find
Nagato's corpse so that he can take his Rinnegan. She refuses to tell him, instead informing him
that she has been waiting for him and intends to personally stop him.
Before they begin fighting, Tobi asks why she and Nagato would betray Akatsuki. Konan replied
that Naruto was the embodiment of light that gave everyone the flower of hope.

The results of Konan and Tobi's ensuing battle.

She attacked Tobi with Paper Shuriken but they passed right through his intangible body. She
then enveloped him in her dissipated paper form mixed with explosive tags, planning to kill them
both. Tobi saves them by warping most of the explosion away, at the cost of his right arm and
having a part of his mask broken. Tobi applauds her determination, to which Konan responds by
vowing to destroy him, the "darkness" where flowers can do nothing but wilt and die.
Konan then divides the lake, revealing an abyss of paper and as Tobi helplessly falls into it, she
detonates the six hundred billion explosive tags that she had placed there that would last over a
period of ten minutes, longer than the five-minute period that Tobi can remain intangible for.

Konan professing her resolve.

When the explosions ceased, Konan collapsed, exhausted, but believed the battle won. At the
same time, some of the paper flowers at Nagato and Yahiko's shrine fall apart. Tobi, however,
quickly appeared behind her and stabbed her with a pipe, revealing that he had survived her
assault with Izanagi at the cost of his left eye.
Konan freed herself, and prepared to attack again, but before she did so, the endless rains over
Ame stopped for the first time, surprising both Konan and Tobi. Seeing this as a sign of Nagato's
will, Konan proclaimed that she would be a support that held up the bridge that lead to peace.
Taking up the mantle of "darkness" that crushes the light, Tobi grabbed her by the throat,
dispelling an attack she had been preparing and places her under a genjutsu to force her to reveal
Nagato's location. He added that she will die when the illusion ends.[16]

In the anime, Konan was able to attack Tobi just before he grabbed her by the throat. Her attack,
however, was unable to stop him.
Konan's body was left floating in the water.[17] One of her blood-soaked sheets of paper is blown
to the Ame Orphans' old hideout and came to rest on her "Hop-In" card, signifying a promise that
the three had made to return there one day before leaving.
