Eight-Tails Subduing Team
|Anime||Naruto Shippūden Episode #244|
|Appears in||Anime and Manga|
The Third Raikage's rule was noted to be riddled with the jinchūriki of the Eight-Tails losing control of the beast, and going on a rampage. To deal with these epidemics, the Third assembled a special team tasked with restraining the Eight-Tails whenever this happened. They would bind the Eight-Tails with chains — which in the anime, were said to be imbued with a fūinjutsu — and distract it, giving the Third enough time to use the Kohaku no Jōhei to seal the beast. The inability of jinchūriki to control the Eight-Tails cost Kumogakure many lives, including that of Motoi's father who was a member of the team. After the Eight-Tails was sealed into Killer B, he was able to control it, bringing an end to the rampages and the assumed disbanding of this team.
