Here are all the Tailed beasts in Naruto, as well as the Jinchuriki who carried them. The world of Naruto is full of flashy chakra blasts and monstrous summons, but one of Masashi Kishimoto’s more inventive concepts was the bijuu, or tailed beasts. These creatures originate from the chakra trees of the villainous Otsutsuki clan, which transform into incredibly powerful ten-tailed monsters. In order to avert widespread destruction, the Sage of Six Paths split the ten-tails brought to Earth into nine smaller creatures, which would go on to become the fabled-tailed beasts of Naruto.

All tailed beasts with their Jinchuriki


All tailed beasts with their Jinchuriki
Jinchuriki (literally meaning: Power of Human Sacrifice) are humans that have tailed beasts sealed within them. They exhibit extraordinary powers due to the immense chakra reserves they possess.

One Tail – SHUKAKU

One Tails - Shukaku

Shukaku is most closely affiliated with the Hidden Sand village, and his first known Jinchuriki was the priest Bunpuku. The clergyman was followed by another host not important enough to be named, before Shukaku was placed inside an unborn Gaara, still developing in his mother’s womb. Shukaku’s physical design is based on a tanuki – a Japanese raccoon dog. He’s also an immensely proud bijuu, constantly trying to make up for being single-tailed, and considers Kurama his fiercest rival. In terms of abilities, Shukaku specializes in manipulating sand, making him the perfect mascot of his village and an ideal companion for Gaara. Their relationship began uneasily due to Shukaku’s ability to control a Jinchuriki in their sleep, but as Gaara grew stronger, he was able to utilize the bijuu’s power more effectively. Finally, inspired by Naruto and Kurama, Gaara began treating Shukaku as an equal, not a weapon.

Two Tails – MATATABI

Two Tails - Matatabi

Matatabi is a prime example of how tailed beasts were exploited by ninjas in past ages. Captured by Konoha’s Hashirama Senju, Matatabi was sold to the Hidden Cloud as part of a deal that would supposedly foster peace and balance between the five major villages. The only known Matatabi Jinchurikiis Yugito Nii, who inherited the monster as a child. Yugito would go on to become a Jonin in her village, learning to exercise control over her bijuu – a process potentially made more accessible by Matatabi being one of the less aggressive-tailed beasts. Matatabi bears the appearance of two mythological Japanese folk monsters – the Bakeneko and the Kasha, but the Naruto version is covered in blue flame, naturally. As implied by its design, Matatabi uses fire-based techniques, arguably making the creature a better fit for Konoha than the Hidden Cloud.

Three Tails – ISOBU

Three Tails - Isobu

Like Matatabi, Isobu was sold by Hashirama as part of the Five Kage Summit agreement, this time to the Hidden Mist village. When war inevitably broke out, Isobu was forcibly sealed within Konoha’s Rin Nohara with the intention of releasing her upon an unsuspecting Leaf village. Aware of the plot, Rin sacrificed herself to not accidentally hurt the people she loved. When a Jinchuriki dies, their tailed beast restores over time, and the revived Isobu was eventually placed into Yagura Karatachi, the Hidden Mist’s Fourth Mizukage. When introduced in the Naruto timeline, Isobu is loose in the wild, meaning Yagura must’ve died and Isobu was restored a second time. Isobu primarily uses water techniques, explaining the beast’s long-standing affiliation with the Hidden Mist.

Four Tails – SON GOKU

Four Tails - Son Goku

Son Goku was sold to the Hidden Rock village and came to be sealed within a ninja called Roshi. Compared to many bijuu/Jinchuriki pairings, Roshi and Son Goku shared a respectful relationship, but the shinobi came to regret never learning his partner’s true name. Resembling a monkey, Son Goku was inspired by the Monkey King character from the legendary Chinese story Journey to the West. With that said, it’s impossible to ignore the connection to Dragon Ball, which Masashi Kishimoto has admitted was a huge influence on Naruto. Son Goku’s signature techniques were lava-based, a mixture of fire and earth release, and this power is adopted by Naruto. By the end of the original series, a piece of each tailed beast’s chakra resides within Naruto Uzumaki, allowing him to combine the Rasengan with Son Goku’s lava.

Five Tails – KOKUO

Five Tails - Kokuo

Kokuo joined Son Goku in the Hidden Rock and eventually passed to a powerful ninja known as Han. Like almost all of the Jinchuriki, Han was killed when the Akatsuki (secretly led by Madara Uchiha) began collecting the tailed beasts, forcibly extracting each critter from their human host. Kokuo is one of the less prominent bijuu in Naruto but is seen to use the steam nature release (a blend of fire and water) in battle, although it seems to prefer a quiet life in the forest to the excitement of a fight. Where most of Naruto’s tailed beasts are based upon mythical monsters and legends, Kishimoto revealed that Kokuo was a mixture of a horse and a dolphin.

Six Tails – SAIKEN

Six Tails - Saiken

Along with Isobu, Saiken belonged to the Hidden Mist village, the idea being that each village’s beasts would total roughly nine tails (apart from the Sand). This was to keep the power balance relatively equal, as the more tails a bijuu possessed, the stronger they were considered to be. Saiken was sealed within Utakata, who began as a Hidden Mist villager, but later abandoned his home during their dark “Bloody Mist” phase. Utakata was another Jinchuriki killed by the Akatsuki for their inner beast, and the bubble-wielding ninja starred in a memorable Naruto filler arc, which fleshed out his story. Saiken possesses water-based abilities, a slug-like appearance, and can attack with sticky and corrosive substances.

Seven Tails – CHOMEI

Seven Tails - Chomei

Chomei was formerly sealed within Fu, a female ninja from the Hidden Waterfall, after being sold to the village by Hashirama. This was unusual, since the Waterfall wasn’t one of the five major nations, but was considered powerful enough to be included in the arrangement. Naruto flashbacks show each of the tailed beasts as babies, soon after their creation by the Sage of Six Paths. Still, while most of these young creatures are cuter, smaller versions of their present-day selves, Chomei was in a larval state, reflecting its insect-like design as an adult. Chomei is similar to a Japanese rhinoceros beetle, and compared to its bijuu kin, is remarkably placid and laid-back.

Eight Tails – GYUKI

Eight Tails - Gyuki

Gyuki was sold to the Hidden Cloud village along with Matatabi, but the nation struggled to find a Jinchuriki who could control it. One of these was Blue B, the nephew of the Third Raikage, but after Gyuki went on a rampage, the Raikage was forced to seal the bijuu away, causing his nephew’s unfortunate death. Gyuki was ultimately sealed within Killer Bee, the Third Raikage’s adopted son, who surprisingly proved to be a compatible host. Bee befriended the bijuu through the power of rap, or something, and their relationship was entirely two-way, allowing the ninja to draw out the Eight-Tails’ power at will. Even after Gyuki was forcibly extracted from Killer Bee during the Fourth Shinobi World War, he was later re-sealed by his former host. Gyuki is an ox-like yokai with sheep horns and tentacle tails and is regarded as the second strongest bijuu.

Nine Tails – KURAMA

Nine Tails - Kurama

As the only bijuu not captured by the First Hokage, Kurama roamed in the wild for many years until he was found by Madara Uchiha and forced to fight Hashirama. After the First Hokage’s victory, Kurama was sealed within his wife, Mito Uzumaki, and later transferred to Kushina Uzumaki (wife of the Fourth Hokage). Despite valiant attempts to protect Kushina during her labor, Obito extracted Kurama from her and wreaked havoc on the Hidden Leaf. Eventually, Kushina and Minato restrained Kurama and sealed half of the demon fox in the Fourth Hokage himself, and the other half in their newborn son – Naruto Uzumaki. Kurama resembles a kitsune, a mythical Japanese nine-tailed fox, and is regarded as the most powerful of the bijuu. Initially, Kurama would only offer his aid when Naruto’s life was in danger. With help from his mother, Naruto harnessed Kurama’s power, but only by becoming true friends was the full potential of their Jinchuriki and bijuu partnership unleashed.

Ten Tails – JUUBI

Ten Tails - Juubi

All of the above-tailed beasts were created through the Juubi – the ten-tailed beast brought to Earth by the dimension-hopping Otsutsuki clan. Like the Otsutsuki, the exact origin of the Ten-Tails is unknown. The villains travel to other worlds in pairs and unleash their Juubi, which transform into a God Tree and, under the right conditions, yield a chakra fruit. These tasty treats sustain the long lives and incredible power of the Otsutsuki clan, and while just one of the beasts is troublesome enough in Naruto, Boruto reveals more than one Juubi exists. Despite being the archetypal-tailed beast, three powerful characters have played host to the Juubi – the Sage of Six Paths, Obito Uchiha, and Madara Uchiha. The power of the Ten-Tails is virtually unlimited, with no affinity towards one nature over another.
