The Five-Tails (五尾, Gobi) is a tailed beast sealed within Han from Iwagakure. It has been captured, extracted, and sealed by Akatsuki. It is currently unknown which member of Akatsuki captured the Five-Tails, many fans assume it was Deidara. In the anime, the Five-Tails is indicated to have been one of the two tailed beasts that Akatsuki captured before the start of Part II.
According to Madara Uchiha, the Five-Tails first came into being in the waning days of the Sage of the Six Paths' life; to prevent the Ten-Tails' resurgence, the Sage split up its chakra and used his Creation of All Things (万物創造, Banbutsu Sōzō) ability to create nine separate, monstrous constructs of living chakra, which would become known as the tailed beasts. The Five-Tails eventually fell into the possession of Iwagakure and was sealed into Han.
The Five-Tails primarily resembles a white horse, but with a dolphin's head. It has two long horns and two short horns, which are very pointy and sharp. 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, similar to Kimimaro's.
- According to Kishimoto's words from the second Naruto artbook, he tried to do a mix of a dolphin and a horse.
