Hidan was killed by Shikamaru Nara of Team 10. However, it has not been confirmed if Hidan is dead as he is an immortal, and it is said that he’s buried in the depths of the Nara Clan Forest Reserve. Team 10 was successful in avenging their sensei Asuma Sarutobi.
Hidan was the Akatsuki member from Yugakure and when the village turned into a tourist spot, it made him very angry. He believed that the shinobis that lived here were there to kill, and thus he killed all his villagers before joining a cult that worshiped Jashin and glorifies killing humans.
The Akatsuki was sent after Hidan to kill him and Itachi, Konan, and Kakuzu were part of the mission. When Hidan managed to destroy one of Kakuzu’s hearts, Konan offered Hidan the chance to join the Akatsuki and he readily agreed, as he was quite interested in Kakuzu. The two of them became a team. Hidan killed Asuma after consuming a drop of his blood, making the ritual circle, and stabbing himself in the heart which was connected to Asuma.

Shikamaru is the son of Yoshino and Shikaku Nara. As kids when they all were playing ninjas, the other kids didn't allow Choji to play with them. As Shikamaru couldn't convince them to include him, he left them and went to his favorite spot to watch the clouds. Coincidentally, Choji was sitting in the same spot and they both introduced themselves. Shikamaru invited Choji to watch the clouds together and Choji offered him his snacks.
From that day onwards they became best friends and they were always together in the Academy. Shikamaru didn't have a lot of interest in his classes and mainly spent time sleeping during his lessons. He also showed a lack of enthusiasm during class and didn't like taking tests which led to him having bad grades.
Before the fight, Shikamaru makes modifications to his plan so that Kakashi would be a part of it too. Kakashi was quite impressed by Shikamaru that he could make changes in his plan at the last minute. Ino uses her Mind Transfer Jutsu and locates Hidan and Kakuzu who are just ten minutes away, and alerts the team of Akatsuki members.
Once they are located, Shikamaru uses the Shadow Imitation Technique to launch a sneak attack on them but Hidan and Kakuzu notice him and dodge the attack. While they were busy dodging it, Shikamaru throws two explosive kunais at them, Hidan and Kakuzu are caught in the blast but manage to survive. Just as they're moving away from Shadow Imitation, Shikamaru throws Asuma's chakra blades at their shadows which makes them stop in their place.
Hidan is confused about how they were caught when Shikamaru's Shadow didn't even get to touch them. Shikamaru then reveals that he had imbued his Chakra into the blades which acted as an extension for his Shadow Technique due to which he was able to capture them.
With the help of his Shadow Gathering Technique, Shikamaru removes the blades from Hidan's Shadow while connecting his own Shadow Imitation to it. Now that he was in control of Hidan, Shikamaru manipulated him and made him use his Scythe to attack Kakuzu in an attempt to kill him. Kakuzu managed to evade the attack as he was able to detach his limbs. He tells Choji to observe and strike Kakuzu when there is an opening.
As Hidan manages to escape from Shikamaru's jutsu, he goes to attack Kakashi, and Kakuzu uses this as an opportunity to attack Kakashi as Hidan is immortal. As Kakashi manages to survive the attack, Hidan praises him. As they needed to modify their plan, they all regrouped and came to the conclusion that in order to defeat Hidan and Kakuzu, they had to separate them.
Shikamaru said that he'll take on Hidan. He uses his Shadow Stitching and traps Hidan. With Hidan under his control he makes him drop his Scythe and goes into the forest, forcing Hidan to follow him. In the forest, once Hidan is free to move again, he uses his Scythe and throws it at Shikamaru, and it grazes his cheek.
Once he ingests Shikamaru's blood he draws the Jashin circle and stabs himself in the heart. Shikamaru falls down and Hidan mocks him for not putting up a fight. When he's walking off to help Kakuzu, Shikamaru gets up and Hidan is shocked to see him alive.
Shikamaru then reveals that the blood he ingested was not his but Kakuzu's blood, and that he had killed Kakuzu instead. He then attacks Hidan and throws him in a ditch planted with explosives. Hidan falls in it and gets impaled, and Shikamaru buries him down there for good.
As his grades were really poor, nobody expected Shikamaru to become an exceptional ninja. He was the only one in his class to become a Chunin, and he uses Fire and Earth Release. As he is part of the Nara Clan, Shikamaru can also manipulate his own Shadow. He can even channel his Chakra into weapons and increase their powers.
Shikamaru is extremely intelligent with his IQ being over 200. Due to his intelligence, he's able to strategize and make plans on the spot. He can even make modifications to his plans so that it compliments everyone.
The user manipulates their Shadow across a surface to merge it with the target's shadow. The user can stretch the shadow however they wish to do so. If the person is out of the range of the user, they can't get trapped.
The user extends their Shadow along their target's body. The Shadow has physical properties that the enemies can feel. It can be used as a restraint. The closer the user is to the target, the stronger the binding becomes.
In this technique, the user adds his Chakra to his weapon to increase its reach. Their chakra acts as a cover around their weapons, and they can also adjust the reach of their chakra.

"Laziness is the mother of all bad habits, but ultimately she is a mother and we should respect her."
"It's stupid to talk about things you're not. Be yourself and you'll be fine."
"Stay focused. Never avert your eyes, because if an opening arises, even our insignificant power may be enough to determine the fate of the world."
"It’s because we help out when they’re in trouble that we can count on them to come running when we need it."
"We are not that stupid. I have no intention to die…but, I don’t want to give up without setting things straight...I don’t want to live a crappy life like that."
