Possessed by a Parasite: Shippo, Our Worst Enemy! is the one hundred sixty-fourth episode of the InuYasha anime.
Naraku walks through a snowstorm into a cave. Within the cave is a dark glowing gem. When he takes the gem, a voice asks, "who dares to disturb my sleep?"
Miroku and Sango warn Inuyasha to stay back, saying it is a fox deity, not a demon, and that it's been corrupted somehow. Sango and Miroku fight the creature and a parasite comes away from the fox deity. Sango destroys the parasite.
Sango tells the others about the parasite, saying that its behavior was abnormal. During the night, Inuyasha slays several more of the parasites. Shippo becomes infected by a parasite demon. Sango and Miroku chase after Shippo in an effort to save him, but Shippo escapes.
Shippo wreaks a kind of havoc throughout the area, playing nasty pranks and destroying things along the way. Sango and Miroku find Shippo, but he tangles them up in sticky rice.
Inuyasha and Kagome try to find Shippo before the villagers can hurt him. Shippo escapes, and causes a bit of trouble for Kagome and Inuyasha before escaping again.
Inuyasha becomes entangled with Miroku and Sango. The three escape. Sango makes dumplings tinged with paralysis poison in an effort to stop Shippo, but it is only partially effective. This gives Inuyasha a chance to cut the parasite away from Shippo.
Everyone takes off after the parasite to stop it before it can find another creature to possess. Along the way they come across a large bunch of the parasite demons.
Kikyo shoots down some parasites, thinking to herself that she has slain a lot of them recently.
Sango again comments that there is something abnormal about the situation with the parasites. Miroku wonders if Naraku is involved somehow.
Naraku walks along a path, holding the gem he picked up earlier and chuckling to himself.
