Take out the sages in training, who have been causing problems.
Four teenagers undergoing sage training with the Great Turtle have gotten sick of their training and are putting their limited experience with senjutsu to improve their own standing in the land of Iron. A man with studded armor and claws has requested that Eclipse and a team of a few ninja stop this, he doesn't care how just as long as they stop.
Eclipse assembled a team consisting of Ryo Hyuga, Shinji Uchiha, and Zennosuke Kaguya to "take care of" a nuisance that took the form of four sages in training. The group walked into the mountains where they were rumored to be, and Ryo was able to spot them using his byakugan. Two of the ninjas were meditating and gathering chakra while two were sparring with each other. Ryo and Shinji scouted using the byakugan and bubble jutsu, respectively, then rejoined the group to formulate a plan.
Zennosuke created a water clone and henged it to look like an attractive girl. The clone pretended to be lost and in need of help, which caught the attention of the two ninjas who were sparring. They offered help and started to escort the "lost girl" back to her village while hitting on her and bragging about their talents. When they reached the ambush point, Zennosuke caused his clone to explode, causing heavy damage to one of the ninja (Donatello), who Shinji also hit with his bubble jutsu and then Ryo polished him off. The remaining ninja (Leonardo), called for his friends (Michelangelo and Raphael) to come to aid, and went to battle with Eclipse's clones and crew.
Raphael arrived to the scene and used his Hiding in Mist technique to cloud the battlefield, though Ryo was able to use his byakugan to grab Leonardo who was trying to get away and knocked him out. Shinji threw shuriken into the battlefield, hitting nearly everyone. The field was cleared by Michelangelo, who used a massive amount of chakra to create a Water Release: Dragon Whip, striking everyone except Eclipse who was hiding nearby while his clones were engaging the enemy. Nearly drained of chakra, he tried to run off to recharge, but was ambushed by Eclipse and knocked out. Raphael attacked Zennosuke, but was subsequently taken down by Shinji and Ryo.
Once the four sages in training had been subdued, Eclipse and his crew started to interrogate them for information. They learned that the man who had hired them also had criminal dealings and had hired them to take out his rival gang. They took the four captives to the local authorities and pondered their next move.
