Kokuō (穆王, Kokuō), more commonly known as the Five-Tails (五尾, Gobi), is one of the nine tailed beasts. It was last sealed within Han from Iwagakure.

Background Edit

Young Biju

The young tailed beasts with the Sage of the Six Paths.

Kokuō first came into being in the waning days of the Sage of the Six Paths, who used his Creation of All Things ability to separate the Ten-Tails' chakra from its body and divide it into nine separate constructs that would come to be known as tailed beasts in order to ensure that it would never resurface after his death.[1][2] Some time after being created, the Sage sat down with all the young tailed beasts and told them that they would always be together, even when separated, and that one day they would become one entity again with different names and forms than they did. Then, when the time came, they would know what true power is.[3] Kokuō eventually fell into the possession of Iwagakure and was sealed into Han, but was captured and extracted by Akatsuki.

Personality Edit

Kokuō seems to be a quiet and reserved individual. Though it does not speak much, Kokuō uses the rather old-fashioned "watakushi" (私) when referring to itself, causing it to come across as very polite.

Appearance Edit

Young Kokuo

A young Kokuō.

Kokuō primarily resembles a white horse, but with a dolphin's head. It has two pointed long horns and three (two in the anime) shorter horns in front.

The ends of its horns, hooves, and tails are light brown, with some of the same-coloured spots before the brown areas of its horns and hooves. It also has red markings under its dark blue-green eyes. During the last remaining days of the Sage of the Six Paths, Kokuō was much smaller than it is now and its horns were also shorter.[3]

Abilities Edit

Tsunoori

Kokuō using Horn Breaking.

See also: Jinchūriki Forms As a tailed beast, Kokuō has a great amount of chakra and is able to use it to create a Tailed Beast Ball for attacks.

Kokuō possesses great physical strength and while using its horns in combat, it has shown enough ramming-force to injure Gyūki, and knock the beast a considerable distance away. Kokuō is also able to increase the temperature of chakra to its boiling point.[4] This ability forms the basis of what is referred to as "steam-based ninjutsu" granting itself, or its jinchūriki overwhelming physical strength. When in use, this ability causes the jinchūriki to emit copious amounts of steam from their body.

Part II Edit

Shinobi World War Arc Edit

Biju full transformation

The remaining jinchūriki transform into their tailed beasts.

After Han's full transformation into the Five-Tails, he rammed into Gyūki and pushed it a considerable ways back. Seemingly rushing towards the shinobi to attack them again, the Five-Tails is restrained by Tobi. As the chain wraps around its neck, the Five-Tails comments on the pain and laments about being controlled in this manner, revealing that for an instant it had broken free of Tobi's control and attempted to attack him. Forced back into its submissive Version 2-like state, it begins to attack the shinobi as commanded. After Son Gokū is resealed into the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path, Tobi, who is intent on going all-out from this point on, forces Han to fully transform into the Five-Tails.[5]

Gyuki punches Kokuo

Gyūki intercepts Kokuō.

Preparing to attack the shinobi, Kokuō along with the other four beasts create Tailed Beast Balls. These attacks however, are deflected by Naruto and they are rebuffed by a now fully-transformed Naruto. Wasting no time in their attacks, the Five-Tails attempts to attack B again while it is preoccupied with the Three-Tails. The beast is however sent flying by B, who anticipated the attack. With this, the opposing beasts prepare a collaborative Tailed Beast Ball which is met by one from Naruto and Kurama.

Seishin Sekai

Kokuō, alongside the other jinchūriki and tailed beasts, encounters Naruto.

As Naruto enters a deeper plane of the tailed beasts' consciousness, Kokuō introduces itself to Naruto. Later as the beast is freed from the chakra receiver it affirms Kurama's belief that Naruto was the person the Sage of the Six Paths had spoken about so long ago before being resealed into the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path.

Ten-Tails Revival Arc Edit

Bijuu released

Kokuō is released alongside the other tailed beasts.

Kokuō appeared alongside the other tailed beasts with the exception of Gyūki and Shukaku when the Ten-Tails looked down at Naruto. The image of the tailed beasts, along with a silhouette of the Sage of the Six Paths, drove the Ten-Tails to a fit as it evolved further. Through the combined effort of the Allied Shinobi Forces, it was later possible to pull Kokuō out of Obito, freeing it alongside with the other tailed beasts.

Infinite Tsukuyomi Arc Edit

671 bijuu reunion

The tailed beasts reunite with Hagoromo and Naruto.

As Naruto in Tailed Beast Mode pinned Madara down with a tail, Kokuō and the other tailed beasts joined in and did the same to increase the damage, but the Uchiha survived their attacks and retreated to a safe distance. After he received his own right Rinnegan eye from a White Zetsu clone, Madara quickly summoned the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path from Obito's body, and used the Rinnegan to repel the tailed beasts. With the tailed beasts stunned, Madara then proceeded to chain them up and prepared to seal them back into the statue. Ultimately, Kokuō, along with the other tailed beasts, are all resealed within the Demonic Statue.

Later, the chakra Kokūo transferred to Naruto earlier manifested within Naruto's subconscious along with the other tailed beasts to speak with the young ninja and the spirit of Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki. There, they voiced their shared belief that Naruto is the child of prophecy.

Later, after Madara's ambitions were cut short by Black Zetsu, who revealed to be the silent manipulator of ninja history since it was first created by Kaguya Ōtsutsuki, the black entity used Madara's body as a medium to resurrect its creator. During the battle in Kaguya's snowy-filled dimension, Kokuō used its chakra to greatly boost Naruto's offensive power, plowing through Kaguya's defences and momentarily overwhelming her.

Video Games Edit

Although Kokuō itself is not playable, Han takes on its form in both his Ultimate attack and as his awakening form in Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 and Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution.

Trivia Edit

  • 'Kokuō' (穆王) literally means 'respectful king'. This name probably comes from the name of the tenth-century-ʙᴄ Chinese King Mu of Zhou (周穆王, Zhōu Mù Wáng). He's famous for the legend surrounding his visit to the sacred Kunlun Mountains (崑崙, 昆仑山, Kūnlún Shān), where he visits the goddess Xi Wangmu (西王母, Xī Wángmŭ; Literally meaning "Queen Mother of the West") so he can eat from her peaches of immortality. There is also an account of the King being shown a human-shaped automaton — a completely artificial, fully functional robot with internal organs and all. This might tie into Han's appearance and abilities. In Japanese, the name '穆王' is pronounced as 'bokuō', so the unusual 'kokuō' pronunciation used for the beast's name was probably meant to bring the word 国王 (king) to mind.
    • The kanji '穆' in Kokuō's name comes from the archaic adjective 'bokuboku' (穆穆), which means 'peaceful and lovely' or 'humble and dignified' and are also traits often associated with horses and dolphins.
  • According to Kishimoto in the second Naruto artbook, he tried to do a mix of a dolphin and a horse when he created Kokuō.
